Medja is largely equatorial, tropical, or sub-tropical. Located In the west of Miyana, and abutting Ikeela to the south, Extrea to its West, Aspah and Erede to its North, and Abyssa to its east. Medja is the evolutionary home of Humanity, with all living Humans having descended from one or more of the five major migration events and/or the population that remained in the original native range. Medja consists of 34 geological plates and is home to the nations of:

Time zoneMIT-0:00 to +0:00

The Northern great circle, as well as much of the area either side of the International Date Line is dominated by the supercontinent known as Skian. Whilst the continent has many large islands, it is largely covered in water or ice. Skian contacts Aspah to the East and South, as well as both Erede and Extrea to the south. Skian consists of 52 geological plates and is home to the nations of:

Climate

Climate fluctuates significantly on Miyana according to many factors such as altitude, proximity to coast, foliage, variation, longitude, air and water currents, and other factors. However, general patterns exist, which define many of the systems that themselves influence climate zones.

Parallels

Selected Parallels

A number of abstract lines are drawn that approximate factors that influence Miyana’s climate either side of them.

Equator

Shown opposite in black, the equator is defined as equidistant from the geographic north pole and geographic south pole. The equator has the distinction of, on equinoxes, having equal duration days and nights. Further, temperatures tend to be the most stable as sunlight angle and duration varies least according to time of year.

Polar Circles

Shown in blue. Defined as the points furthest from the respective pole where the sun is visible above the horizon for 24 hours continuously (on the solstices). On Miyana, these occur at 58.8 degrees north and south respectively, and are called the Serkaskyian Cirlce in the northern case, and the Ikeelun circle in the southern.

Tropics

Highlighted by red lines, and the translucent red intertropical zone, the tropics are the areas furthest from the equator, at which the sun may be seen as directly overhead (Summer solstice in the north, winter solstice in the south). The tropical zone typically is warm and has limited seasonal variation, often expressed as a dry season and a wet season. On Miyana the tropics are found at 18 degrees north and south.

Subtropics

Illustrated by dashed orange lines, the subtropics are not defined through any relation, as the other parallels are, but rather simply as a zone between the tropics and the temperate zone. On Miyana the boundary is defined as 28.8 degrees north or south of the equator.

Humanity

Humans are a species of Great ape (Hominidae) native to a small portion of the supercontinent Medja, on the planet Miyana. The species has naturalised to most of the land area of the planet. Humans are distinct in their degree of sapient thought, foreplanning, sentience, and ability to manipulate tools and their environment. Highly morphologically and phenotypically diverse, humans have also formed a wide variety of societies and cultures.

Timekeeping

Gregorian calendar info.png

Many methods of timekeeping, as well as discrete conceptions of the notion of time itself exist on Miyana. The most common form, and the form utilised for international trade and diplomacy, known as Miyana International Time uses a 24 hour fixed day, 7 day week, 400 day per year standard, as well as time zones centred around the prime meridian in Hiremattia. Various standards are described below.

Miyana International Time

A map showing default timezones by Latitude (does not account for national standardisations)

Miyana International Time, used as the common international timekeeping and coordination standard, splits time into fixed duration units consisting of seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years. These are defined as 60 seconds are equal to a minute, 60 minutes to an hour, 24 hours to a day, 7 days to a week, 400 days to a year. There are 13 months in this calendar.
