Yow Kingdom Island, also known as Península Isla, is an island located in the north-eastern portion of the Yowien Sea. It has served as the capital island for the Old Yow Kingdom, and is currently the location of the Yowien Partition. It is credited for being the first island in the sea to be inhabited by modern day civilization. The oldest recorded civilization known to have been located on the island was Yäulandt. It is currently the largest island by population in the Yowien Sea, and has a booming agricultural industry, mainly in the southeastern part.

Gërbles Von Wein is credited for discovering Yow Kingdom Island in February 10 BC. The island was discovered when Gërbles' crew was sailing back home from a recent invasion on the Penguin Empire. When the island was discovered, Gërbles named it Yäulandt, gave to the Old German States, and proclaimed himself duke on March 10, 10 BC. Mönner and Slaßer (Slasser) were founded in the next two months. Originally Mönner was going to be a massive city that enveloped the entire island, but the Alemanian Barbarian tribes refused for it to happen. Therefore, Slasser was established in present-day Hilnit Town. Mönner became a thriving port city, and was well known throughout the Ninja Archipelago and parts of Antarctica.
Explorers in AD 1 ventured into the more north-western parts of the islands, and found the city Røllein in modern day Linox. Røllein was used a trading post, and a leap pad for further explorations into Yäulandt. Through AD 5 and 18, the cities Scærtë and Dòlpëræng were soon established in the mountains near Røllein. These cities remained quit small, and served no major purpose.
In AD 32, the descendant of Gërbles Von Wein, Slasher Von Wein, spread propaganda throughout Yäulandt. He told the citizens that the German States were planning to take away fellow tribespenguins' land and freedom. The propaganda changed the public's overall thinking so much, that the slightest change in law made them furious. When the Alemanian government had to raise taxes on its citizens, the citizens at Yäulandt became angry. They rebelled against the duke, and established a monarchy. The Alemanians did not bother counter-attacking, and stopped all trade and aid to Yäulandt.
In AD 50, Yäulandt had a sudden explosion in population. That same year, a great famine came upon islands north of the Ace Borderline. However, Yäulandt was unaffected. This caused many immigrants, simply in search of food, to travel to Yäulandt. Yäulandt had many farms, and could supply the needs of these immigrants. The population rose to 145,600, and the nation started having "growing pains". Many if these immigrants were poor, and had to live in crowded, filthy cities. Disease, of course, spread quickly; many city-dwellers died of diseases. Eventually, the cities Scærtë and Dòlpëræng grew into large metropolitan cities.
In AD 140, Yäulandt and the Penguin Empire soon became great enemies. Rumors were spread that the nation would build up its military, and invade the Penguin Empire. These rumors were believed to be truth by the government officials, and the national leaders came to hate each other. Eventually, in AD 145, the Penguin Empire (in anger) attacked Mönner. The Penguin Empire burnt half of the buildings in the port city, and sunk every ship in the port. The Yäulandt army was unprepared, and easily defeated. In AD 150, a great hurricane struck the island. Destroying many settlements, and causing many to flee the island. The next day, the Penguin Empire invaded Yäulandt. They burnt down, and destroyed every building, killed many penguins, and took some High Penguins as slaves.
Old Yow Kingdom AD 1990-2013
In early 1990, Alexander Clanin, a fisherman, crashed onto the island after fishing near the Frankish colonies of Hontana, Frankish Papee, and the Marble Lands. He landed on the shore of Golden City, and was kindly welcomed by English-speaking terns. The island was not known by any other country; except, that rumors spread that some Frankish have landed on the island. Alexander decided to establish an independent monarchy on the island, and declare himself king. While on the island, he built himself a small cabin near the place where he shipwrecked (which is part of the Alexander's First Step Monument). He and the terns rebuilt his ship, and helped guide him back to civilization. Alexander traveled all the way back to the Antarctican mainland, and started to tell his friends that he discovered a new island. He then started to advertise his new nation, Yow Kingdom in Castilla, Colonial Antarctica, and Lisboagal. Lisboagal had the largest amount of immigrants to Yow Kingdom, where they established the oldest neighborhood in Yow: Little Lisboagal.
By 1992, the population had reached 500. Alexander now lived in a large mansion, and hired militias to protect Yow. The official Yowien military was soon established in late 1992, and the island was now finally protected. The population also reached 1,000 by December of the same year. Yow's markets and economy grew quickly from selling raw materials; such as farm goods. Many poor penguins traveled to Yow to get a better life, which they did. The average salary of a Yowien citizen during good conditions is 800 GC a day, making Yow have the richest middle class in Antarctica. By 1995, Yow had one of the most prosperous trade in all of Antarctica. Very soon, cities like Nilo, Sall, and Linox were founded.
In 2000, the United States of Antarctica, a future enemy of Yow, was formed. The USA, Frankterre, and Yow were both building up their military's for the new millennium. When the USA tried to take Hontana, a Frankish colony, as a state, the Frankish and Yowiens became mad. Very soon The First Hontanan War started, in which the Yofra army (Yowien and Frankish) warred against the Antarcticans. Eventually the USA lost its claim to Hontana, and Frankterre dissolved into a democracy. Yow gained Hontana after the war, and was soon recognized as a power to be reckoned with. After the war, Yow's relations began dropping. The enslaving of the Hokjoks on F Island in 2005 angered many other nations, especially Castilla. When Yow's extreme abundance in raw materials and land was truly noticed, many nations began to conspiracy how to conquer it.
In the early 21st century, larger, better cargo ships were created. These ships could sail for miles on far less fuel than older models. These new ships became quite popular, and were able to sail right past Yow Kingdom. This devastated the economy, and extremely worried Alexander. To make things worse, Alexander didn't how to fix the problem. He started to waste money on a government-sponsored theme park, space colony/space program, and other things. Yow soon fell into a series of wars: The Crab Wars, after the Barbearer Islands and Bar Crab City went to war.
On October 1st, 2012, Alexander was shot and killed by a Barbearic robot. Feey1 Pie, successor to the throne soon declared war on the Barbearer Islands. Yow entered its second major war, and received aid from Bar Crab City in invading the Barbearer Islands. The war devastating the Yowien Sea, especially Yow Kingdom Island. For a short time, Yow had lost many islands. However, Feey1 and The Three Pieteers were able to rally up against the Barbearics once again. The allies won the war in one massive battle at Topia. After the war, Feey1 became king.
Sometime after 2031, Feey3 Pie conquers and reclaims Yow Kingdom Island for the Pie family name, to redeem his father and start his own Sith empire that would inspire Sith for generations, even after its eventual destruction.
Yow Kingdom Island's culture is heavily influenced by Castillans and Lisboagese. In recent years, its culture has become more Zhouese and Frankish. However, cities like Sall and Hilnit Town remain highly Castillan and Frankish. Many buildings in Golden City are influenced Zhouese culture, having large statues in front of buildings, and having Zhouese type roof tiles.
Many citizens enjoy eating Castillan and Lisboagese foods; seafood is also highly popular. The citizens on Yow Kingdom Island mainly listen to orchestra, and rock music.
Yow Kingdom Island is well known for its flat plains, and large mountains. It's the center of agriculture in the empire because of its rich soil, which was given nutrients by a chain of hurricanes hundreds of years ago. The majority of farms on the island are located in the center of the island, the Yowien drainage basin. Because of tectonic plates under the surface, the capital island is being pushed into itself. This is believed to have caused the growth of folded mountains to the east and west of Yow, called the Golden Mountains. The capital island also has many kettle lakes, and a salt water river running right through it. Each major city on the capital island is separated from the nearest other city by a body of water.
Yow Kingdom Island is far north, and therefore, has many tropical plants. The entire Yowien Empire has many palm trees, passion flowers, pineapples, oak trees, and fruit-bearing plants and flowers. On the capital island, many domesticated plants are not local to the sea; many came from the Ninja Archipelago. These foreign plants have no major natural enemies in the Yowien Empire, and are overtaking the island.
The empire itself is well known for having much odd fauna. There are many different types of fish and water mammals in the sea, including shrimp, crab, manatees, and dolphins. Walruses are often commonly seen on floating icebergs in the Yowien Sea; citizens are warned to avoid any walrus.
Yow Kingdom Island has 5 cities, only one of them is not a port city.
Golden City is the largest city on the island, with an area of 3,500 square miles and a population of 900,700. Golden City is also the cultural, government, business, and overall capital of the entire Yowien Sea. It had great historical value to the Yowiens, and is known as the nicest city in the Yowien Sea. It's owned by the Culldrome Isles.
Linox is a medium-sized city north of Hilnit Town. Linox is well known for its farms, meadows, mountains, lakes, and Funtopia. Many Castillans still live in Linox; however, recently many Zhouese have migrated to it. It's controlled by Puffle'and.
Hilnit Town is a small fishing and farming city on the southern side of Yow Kingdom Island. It, as well as Nilo City, was located very close to the Yowien military base of operations. It has a high puffle population, and many of them came from Puffle'and. It is now owned by Shops Island and the whole region around it is used purely for agriculture.
Sall is the smallest city on Yow Kingdom Island, it is also the only one without a port. Sall is also the youngest city on the island, being found in in 2003 by the Exploration Society of Yow. The city had a booming agriculture and tourism industry. However, when the Snoss got control of it in 2013, the land was completely wrecked and became a barren wasteland for slave labor and natural resource extraction.
Nilo City is the 2nd largest city on Yow Kingdom Island. Nilo was the military, sports, trading, and diverse-language capital of the Yow Kingdom. Nilo is well known for its sport stadiums, and having a large coast and, therefore, has the largest number of ports and harbors. Over 60% of Yow's raw goods were shipped through Nilo. It's currently owned by Castilla.
The Golden Mountains is a large mountain range that goes through the center of the capital island. These mountains are folded mountains, and reach great heights. The highest recorded mountain is 8,110 feet above sea level, and many of the mountains are an average of 5,000 to 6,000 feet above sea level. The Golden Mountains are a popular tourist destination, because of their interesting shapes, and wonderful looks at sunset (which is how they were named Golden Mountains).
Río Salado (Salt River)
Río Salado is the salt water river that runs through Yow Kingdom Island. Its current is powered by runoff from the Golden Mountains, and several smaller rivers that flow into it. The current begins at its mouth in Nilo City, and then flows northwards. It eventually turns, and flows southwards. It is the largest salt water river within 750 miles of the Antarctic Peninsula, but is not a popular tourist destination.
