Geography. Located 18 miles (29 km) from the northern tip of Antarctica, this cordial island retreat is part of the former Atlantis Archipelago. Mountainous to a fault, this island was thought uninhabitable until the early 20th Century. The Mumbarian Mountain range is one of the most pathetic ranges on Earth. Mumba suffers from cyclical drought, and chronic alcoholism. Surrounded by the Indian Ocean, Mumba has no fishing industry to speak of. The Swannie River runs through the Capital, Paris, up to three months per year.

Government. The only Socialist Democratic Republic in the hemisphere. The President is elected for life by picking straws. The rumors of President Mai's death may have been exaggerated. The National Assembly (6 members), meets on a irregular basis for no reason at all.

History: This is a sore spot for most Mumbadians. The local lore has them being transported from a galaxy, not far from our own. A highly advanced society known for their beauty, intelligence, and grace. Seedings of a civilization so advanced, that words cannot be incorporated to explain them. As a tourist arriving by kayak at the "Port of Paris Visitors Center" and actually meeting the people, you will soon see how big a myth the story of intergalactic farming is. In truth,the history of Mumba is quite contrary. It seems that the Mumbadians where a people from an Island we now call "Australia." They were of a tribe called the "obnoxious". The obnoxious are indigenous to the Western Hemisphere, which included Australia. But, unlike the other Countries in the hemisphere, Australia seems to be the only one to expel them. The exact circumstances of their departure is not quite clear. But you a certain to figure it out once you arrive in Mumba.
