Hindia is the second largest island of the Asiapelago, right to its East. Almost all of the island is owned by the Puffle'and, with the exception of the Gua Enclave and the Cashmere Region, the first belongs to Dorkugal, while the second to UnitedTerra. The island is host to a variety of languages, like Hindi and Tamil, though English and Hindi prevail. The island, a developing region, is the hiring base for several telemarketers and telephone operators for major global countries. The island is increasingly growing larger in population and economically- hoping to rival Zhou.
Hindia was first settled in 1600 BC in it's western region. Hindia's first civilizations were found on the heaty Hindos River, of which gave the region got it's name. The Hindos River Valley Civilization was unknown since they have an undecipherable language, though we do know they had paved streets and had public baths. It is believed that a famine or an eathquake may have led to the civilization's decline. However, such actions allowed the penguin and puffle inhabitants to spread out across the area, reaching the tropical peninsula in the north and the rough mountains in the south. Hindia was known to have been the first region to cultuvate and spin cotton and grow tea. Hindia became dominated by several small kingdoms with a similar culture where they established a rigid caste system that inhabitants were born into- with political leaders on the top, and the "untouchables" (servants of the most unwanted work) on the very bottom. Hindia's early years were mostly in isolation, though at one point, Snowpriot conquerers briefly conquered the northwestern part of the island but quickly left due to political instability. However, their brief visit did help influence Hindian architecture since the Snowpriots introduced the arch. Some time later, a powerful empire located in the North conquered its neighbors to establish the first unified Hindian Empire- the Maulian Empire, founded by a king named Chandra Chandra. The Maulian Empire ruled almost all of the Hindian Island, except for the very tip in the south because the very south had developed economically prosperous city states. During the time of political stability in the BC era, a young prince known as "The Enlightened One" was born, and based on his desire for peace of mind and a way to stay healthy, "The Enlightened One" invented yoga. Yoga began to become popular in Hindia, though it's ways of relaxation and it's inspiration to establish healthy lifestyles began to undermine the power of the Caste System's political leaders. In many cases, Yoga practitioners were the former members of the untouchables class, and they were often in conflict with the warring caste system followers. Hence, the yoga practitioners began to disperse, leaving Hindia and going to Zhou, where they established their own schools. The Zhouese transformed yoga into a practical form of fighting that is known today as Kung Fu. However, back in Hindia, Yoga practitioners were saved when the Maulian King, King Sokka, became scarred for life after a war, and he became a yoga practitioner himself. King Sokka led the way of a long era of peace that lasted a long time, until the economy began to collapse along with the empire. Afterwards, small kingdoms prevailed again, and so did the leaders of the caste system, who made a final attempt to crush the yoga practitioner dominance and to make them a minority, which they were successful in. Hence, the Chandra Empire was established under the caste social system and ruled all of Hindia except for the very bottom part, just like it's predecessor nation. Unfortunately, the Chandra Empire fell around the 500's when a massive Pengolian invasion occurred, and the Chandra Empire fell under Pengolian control. Instead of making the area part of Pengolia, the Pengolian supremecists decided to establish their own regime, known as the Mogul Empire. They made sure that the Pengolians were the only penguins to wield power on the island, and they wielded their authority in mainly the north and in the eastern region of Bengalia. Nevertheless, the Pengolians intermixed with native Hindians, creating a new race that ruled the land. The Mogul Empire was eventually divided into small princedoms in order to keep order in the empire, which lasted for a very long time. the Mogul Empire kept the peace with the city states in the south and made frequent trade with other Asiapelagoan islands. Then, in the 1500's, Lisboaguese traders reached the island and conducted trade with them in exchange for spices, immediately connecting Hindia with the Ninja Archipelago. Eventually, in the 1600's and 1700's, Frankterran and Puffish trading companies came to the island to establish large trading posts that began to sell tea and cotton back to their home countries. While making pacts with the local princes, Frankterran and Puffish companies would hire Hindian workers for newly established textile mills, and competition for the whole island ensued. The Puffish, with their military prowess and desire for global dominance, were swift to eliminate Frankterre's presence from the island, and soon they controlled all of the island's coasts. As Puffish economic dominance increased, the economic and political dominance of the Mogul Empire began to deteriorate. Eventually, the King of Puffle'and ordered the Puffish company owned regions of Hindia to be established as a royal colony, and soon the Puffish raged inward and ended the Mogul Empire, dominating the whole island for themselves.
Hindia mainly comprises of tropical rainforests, coastal plains, a desert, mountains in the North, and various plateaus across the island. The climate of the island is predominantly tropical, so temperatures are not as drastically different as the seasons change. The winter tends to bring in the Monsoon season, when the island receives large amounts of heavy rain. The Hindos River to the northwest of the island and the Kanchis River to the north and the northeast, where it flows into a large estuary in the province of Bengalia. The Kanchis River has been traditionally important with ancient trade and was considered a very special river. For millennia, locals had believed that the water of the river had the power to give them enlightenment and increase their intelligence if drank. However, if anyone drank too much of the water, they would die. Therefore, the majority of the locals simply bathe in the special river water, which is said to improve longevity. Nevertheless, as the nation is industrializing and developing, the Kanchis river is being polluted heavily, causing environmental problems and health problems for penguins and puffles that bathe in the tarnished river.
Though also under Puffish rule and part of Hindia island, Bengalia is ruled as a separate entity since their inhabitants feel they are a separate ethnicity from the other Hindians. Unlike the rest of the nation, they do not believe that the Kanchis River has any special properties such as increasing someone's IQ or increasing their life span. Nevertheless, the Kanchis River is Bengalia's traditional source of water transportation and is the only purpose it serves for Bengalian society. Bengalia, though on Hindia island, is ruled independently from Hindia proper as it has it's own local legislature and governor.
- The UTR Cashmere region is disputed. Both the local Hindian government and the UTR hold equal power in this area as the support for each country is mixed equally in that region.
