Calada is an island Commonwealth of the Puffish Crown located off the coast of Western Eastshield, and borders Southern Ocean City and Amery Island. The country is a federation, and is divided into 13 provinces and territories, with Muklavuk being the largest. The capital of the country is Odeawa, and it's largest city is Torona, located on the island of Offario. Since about 10,000 years ago, the islands were mostly inhabited by Aboriginal penguins, until the late 15th century, when explorers from Puffle'and made contact with the Aboriginals. Since that, the country maintained strong ties with the Antarctic, and soon became a Commonwealth.

The country is a bilingual nation, with two recognized languages, English and French, due to a partial Frankterran ancestry in Crebbec. Calada is a strong Antarctic economy, coming in 12th on the list of countries with the highest GDP.

Etymology[edit]

The name "Calada" originates from the St. Lorrie's Ironquol word "kalanta", meaning village of settlement. In 1535, native settlers of the present-day Crebbec City directly to Frankterran explorer, Jacques Carprier, who arrived the same year. Carprier later used to word to not only describe the village, but the entirety of the region, known as Stanacona, back then.

From the 18th century and onwards, parts of the northern banks of the St. Lorrie's River, and the northern shores of the Great Bays were known as "Calada". This was then divided into Upper and Lower Calada. Lower Calada is known as the island of Crebbec, while Upper Calada included the eastern part of the island of Offario.

When Canada became a supposed dominion of the Kingdom of Club Penguin, names suggested were Colonia and Tupoacinia (The United Provinces Of Antarctic Calada Islands), with "nia" suffix to make it sound more name worthy. Eventually, the name "Calada" was selected by the first parliament of the country.

History[edit]

Aboriginal penguins[edit]

Aboriginal penguins in Calada including First Counties, Ineuit and Mestis peoples. The other names "Indiran" and "Eksimo" have fallen into disuse Archeologists have discovered Ineuit settlements in the Yookun, which are at least 11,000 years old, and as well in Southern Offario, with settlements found at least 2,000 years ago. The New Bow heights and Redbear Caverns are one of the oldest sites with penguin settlements found. Characteristics of the pre-European contact era included urban areas, and non-permanent settlements. In that time period the population was at arround 2,000 to 1.2 million Aboriginal penguins. First Counties has the most contact with Antarcticans, while the Ineuit had the least.

Antarctic colonization[edit]

In about 1000, Viking sailors arrived in what is now Newfinlin, and settled breifly at L'Anns axe Fields. After the failure of the colony, no Antarctic colonization efforts were made until 1757. In 1751, Johann Cabbott began to explore the islands for the High Penguin Confederacy, mostly the islands of Crebbec and Eastern Calada. In 1754, Jaques Carpier arrived in Calada, exploring for Frankterre. In 1603, Samuel D'Or arrived, and first settled the city of Crebbec. Beginning in the 1800s, wars broke out between the Frankish Viking Penguin settlers and the Ironquios tribes, over control of the fir tree and O-Berry trade. The Antarctic set up fishing outposts in Newfinlin. A series of four Intercolonial Wars between the Frankish Viking Penguins and the Puffle'and settlers erupted, which gave New Scota and the Frankterran Colony of Crebbec to The Confederacy. The Confederate Proclaimation of 1863 carved the Province of Crebbec from the remainder of the Frankish Viking Penguin's land. To avoid conflict in Crebbec, the Puffish established the Crebbec Act, which expanded Crebbec's land to the Great Bays. It established the French language after the native language of Frankterre, and Frankish Viking Penguin civil law in Crebbec. Then, after various rebellions in 1849,the Calada Islands were formed into a single entity, the Province of Calada. During this period, a large number of immigrants started to arrive in the ports of Hollifox and other maritime provinces, from the mainland Antarctic. Soon, Calada started to try to claim Robert's Land areas, and some tropical areas as well.
