Louzaria, formerly New Staynes is a Morstaybishlian territory on the continent Arcturia. It borders and has good relations with Lokania. Louzaria, together with New Calthia, make up the last colonies of the Morstaybishlian Empire in Arcturia.

Louzaria is the third largest Morstaybishlian colony with a total area of 131,850 km² (50,908 sq mi). It's largest city is Sambursten with a population of one million, just under one twelfth of the population. It is the fourth most populous Morstaybishlian colony with 12.99 million in 2018. According to a census of the same year, there are just over 98 people per square kilometre.

Louzaria's countryside consists of high altitude rocky mountains with evergreen coniferous forests that include a majority silver fir but also red cedar and both stone and scots pine trees. The land usually experiences draught seasons followed by storm seasons. The wildlife is especially adapted for the dramatic changes every year.

Louzarian Rocky Mountains

As a large area of Louzaria is inhospitable due to a culmination of high altitude and extreme weather cycles, most of the population live near the coast. This has led to a food shortage that has spanned over a decade. Louzaria imports 20% of its food from Aurora, but during bad years this number can reach as high as 45-50%. In 2017, there was an an expansion into the former Veymar colony in the south. The area holds mostly flat fertile land which will be turned into farmland by 2023. It is predicted with all of the land being used for agriculture that food imports in draught years may drop to as low as the imports required in good seasons, at 20%.

The serving Lieutenant Governor, Godrick Grinwick was elected on the 23rd of February 2019, succeeding Mastui Malerin who served his five year term in office.

Prince Thadeus, Duke of Horkalo was crowned King of Louzaria on the 10th of December 2011 by his father which marked the first King of Louzaria after its inception in September 2011. Despite this, he did not have autonomy and served under his father and besides the Lieutenant Governor until his death. Whilst representing Louzaria his title was King, but whilst representing Morstaybishlia he was known as a Prince.
