Origins and Etymology
Hypernostria is Greek for "furthest south". It was usually used in classical Greek texts as a counterweight to Hyperborea, the furthest north continent. Micras has both a Hyperborea and a Hypernostria, but because of the new lands added by Ryan Caruso, neither is in fact the furthest in its respective direction anymore.
Hypernostria is long, thin, mostly flat and, except a few far northern peninsulae, covered in ice.
Hypernostria was first settled by the sort of bug-nation-y "Beebland", before the country was conquered and absorbed into the United Secular States. They quickly collapsed, and an ill-fated attempt by the Menelmacari to settle there never took hold. It was vacant for about four years, until Riponia settled it as part of their complete domination of the Corum region. Today it is vacant, but ruins of Riponian cities like Dyvelstin still dot the landscape.
