The Abaki Soviet is
located on the northernmost tip of the continent of Eras, bordering the
Lyson Empire and the non-consolidated territories of Severnaya.

the major cities.
The majority of the
population is concentrated along the southwestern coast and arround
Smirnov Lake. On these regions, the climate is warmer. On most
other areas, temperatures may reach as low as
-35°C on the winter.

summer and winter temperatures.
The terrain of Abakia is
made of the Great Western and Eastern Plains, while the central,
northern and southern areas of the country are dominated by pine-covered
hills - none reaching more than seven hundred meters - plus the valleys
formed by the Red Sky Lakes and its rivers. On the southwestern coast,
we find the volcanic islands of the Lakumi Archipelago, negleted by many
- it didn't even appear on any map since 297! - and rightfully claimed
by the Abaki Soviet.
During the winter months, virtually all of the
country is covered in snowfields for at least some weeks.

The Red Sky Lakes are the most important
geographic feature of Abakia. These bodies
of water were formed on the end of the last Ice Age, with the melting of
the great ice caps [ TECH: Just like the North American Great Lakes ].
The lakes and the rivers conecting them are prime components of the
Abaki daily life, being the nation's main transport routes, source of a
great part of our people's food and a popular tourist destination for
Abaki transportation network. Due to the
limited number of roads, most of the transport is done through waterways.
