The Grand Duchy of Nagato, commonly known as Nagato, or sometimes the Nagato Grand Duchy, or abbreviated as NGD, is a sovereign country located in the middle of the Sea of Gondwana on Urth. The only land border is in eastern Nagato with the United Order Republic to the south. With an area of 474,326.3148 km2 (183,138.4139 sq mi), Nagato is the 11th largest country on Gondwana and the 45th largest country on Urth. As of 2020, Nagato has a population of 34,021,230, an estimated increase of 1.6% from 2010. Codexian and Genesi make up the majority of the languages spoken. The population is mainly Nagatoian, followed by the native Genesi, and other nationalities. The capital and the largest city by area and population is Greenwood.
The Genesi people first migrated to East Unovia Island and West Unovia Island from western Gondwana sometime in the late 15th century. The Proto-Nagatoians, at this time, settled on the northern part of Unovia Island The Nagatoians would end up establishing the Kingdom of Nagato in 1700. In 1720, the two cultures would meet each other when a Nagatoian sailed to current-day New Bridgeport and traded with the locals.
The Nagatoians and Genesi would be in peace until the Kingdom of Nagato had a coup d'etat. The Imperial State of Nagato was founded by S. R. Kakifty, who ruled with an iron fist. The Kingdom Resistance escapes from the Imperial State and moves to East Unovia Island where they establish the Grand Duchy of Nagato in 1941. The Nagatoian Civil War would start later that year and end with the Treaty of Castelia in 1945. In the treaty, the Imperial State of Nagato would be dissolved into the Grand Duchy of Nagato, and East and West Nagato would become a united Nagato. With the Imperial State of Nagato annexed, the redesigned Grand Duchy of Nagato became a superpower in Gondwana, with immense power in global geopolitics.
The name Nagato comes from the Genesi word for “eternity, long, and lengthy”. This later included the term “long life” to describe the nation for having a long existence throughout history. The first use of Nagato was used to describe the people of the region who opposed Augustia’s rule.
The land that would become Nagato was the territory of Augustia. In 1559, the first name of the region was called the Western Augustian Territory, but in 1579 after several years of marketing and protests, the government renamed it to better reflect the people of the region as the Nagatoian Territory of Augustia. Most of the Nagatoians of the time lived on the northern part of Unovia Island, while North, East, and West Unovia Islands were not explored all that much until the early 1600s by the Nagatoians.
Prehistory (before 6th century BCE)
The oldest traces of life in what is now Nagato date back approximately 1.6 million years ago with early felines. Over the ensuing millennia, felines were confronted by a harsh and variable climate, marked by several glacial periods. Early felines led a nomadic hunter-gatherer life. Nagato has a large number of decorated caves from the mid-Stone Age, including one of the most famous and best-preserved, Yamoto Caves (approximately 23,000 BCE). During the last glacial period (approximately 19,650 BCE), Chargestone Supervolcano erupted with a Volcanic Explosivity Index of 8. The eruption was so devastating that it blocked out the sun around the world for almost a decade and possibly a 1,000-year-long cooling episode. This has led to the Chargestone catastrophic theory that due to the eruption, it caused a population bottleneck in 95.7% of all life on Urth and acted as a “soft reset”.
Around 18,485 BCE, humans began to arrive in Nagato from what would later be known as Augustia and Vessarlian in the east. This migration is thought to have happened due to other species invading or in search of warmer water. Since there wasn’t a dominant species in Nagato, human settlement began without any conflict from outside sources.
At the end of the last glacial period (9,000 BCE), the climate became milder. As the center of Gondwana was filling up with water from glacial melt, the land started to shrink to present-day coastlines. Around 7,000 BCE, Central Gondwana entered the Neolithic era and its inhabitants became sedentary. After strong demographic and agricultural development between the 4th and 3rd millennia, metallurgy appeared at the end of the 3rd millennium, initially working with copper and bronze, as well as later iron. Nagato has numerous megalithic sites from the Neolithic period, including the exceptionally dense Tokor stones site (approximately 3,300 BCE). Around this time diamonds were first discovered deep in the cliffs of Chargestone Caldera. Early humans used diamonds for worship and to decorate themselves for style and power.

The Genesi were very adventurous during the 1700s and into the early-1800s. The Genesi visited many places around the Sea of Gondwana and brought back books, instruments, new elements like Iron and Oil, and tons of food. It is said that the Genesi people started their Industrial Revolution in 1745 with the introduction of the first wind turbine in New Bridgeport, the first true city, to help with harvesting crops.
Sometime during the late-1700s, two natives were digging into a cave south of current-day New Bridgeport when they noticed a shiny mineral in the cave wall. They told the top scientist at the time, Wene Le, about what they found. To Le’s surprise, it was Silicon. Le ordered a full recovery of all Silicon and whatever they might find in that cave. While in the cave, Lithium was found alongside many precious metals like Diamonds and Emeralds. The Genesi would later use these newfound elements and metals to boost the economy for many decades to come. By 1900, the Genesi economy was growing rapidly.

East Unovia Island, as well as North and West Unovia Islands are part of the Genesi Archipelago, which was formed by volcanic activity initiated at an undersea magma source called the Unovia Hotspot. The process is continuing to build islands; the tectonic plate beneath much of the Unovia Sea continually moves southwest and the hot spot remains stationary, slowly creating new volcanoes. Mount Coronet, a volcano on Ryouko Island, is the tallest mountain in Nagato at 5,683 meters (18,645 feet) tall. Chargestone Caldera, located on East Unovia Island, southeast of New Bridgeport, Nagato, is the site of the last supervolcanic eruption in Gondwana (approximately 19,650 BCE) with a Volcanic Explosivity Index of 8.

This has led to the Chargestone catastrophic theory that due to the eruption, it caused a population bottleneck in 95.7% of all life on Urth and acted as a “soft reset”.
According to the Köppen climate classification, most of Nagato has a temperate oceanic climate (or Do type), which features warm summers, and wet winters with frequent overcast and cloudy skies. Many laws strictly forbid damaging natural habitats, keeping most beaches in the country's natural state, all the while attracting many tourists. Eco-tourism is highly encouraged by the government, with most hotels opting for a healthy mix of nature and the enjoyment of their guests.
