History

The history of pre-Theodia Neapolita is somewhat obscured, but what is known about the region is that it was under the control of a group called the Sneaking Club in 2002. The club had reportedly vanished by 2005, and the land returned to the United States of America. Sometime around 2007, a new country project began, but very little is known about it. It is said that this mysterious civilization had constructed a fort to protect its borders, but after the micronation vanished, no one was left to maintain its fort, which fell-into disarray and was later removed by an American couple. Eventually, Swena founded what would become the Theodia that you know today. Naturally, Neapolita was ser first choice for Theodian land-claims, as this region is where se was domicile in the United States at the time of the country's founding. Se declared ser house the capitol building, and named the region around it "New Hope", declaring it the capital of Theodia.
Theodia later revoked its claim on Neapolita, as many Theodians had since left the area, and as Theodia felt that focusing its efforts upon a single claim, particularly a geographically contiguous and uninhabited one, would legitimize it more.

Resources

A pile of wood from Neapolita

During the time that it was a Theodian territory, wood can be found in the far west and in the far east, and can be cut for use with fires, forts, sale, and many other things. Most of the land was fertile and good for farming, and Theodian farmers had taken advantage of Neapolita's warm, tropical climate to produce pineapples. Also in Neapolita were 11 lakes and one canal, the Golden River, which flowed all throughout the American city of Naples. This river could be seen in both the north, where it was connected to the largest lake in the region, Imperial Lake, and the south. This lake could be crossed to the north into the Imperial Area. Despite the large number of lakes in Neapolita, the water was unsafe to drink from as it had been contaminated by the golf course that previously owned it. There were several kinds of fish in the lakes, namely freshwater catfish, bluegills, and grass carps.

Environmental Conditions

Because of its tropical climate, Neapolita during the time that it was a Theodian territory did not experience seasons in the sense of winter, spring, summer, and autumn as much of the rest of the inhabited world does. Rather, there was just a dry season and a wet season, each taking-up about half the year. It has not snowed in the area of Neapolita in over 10,000 years.

  • Dry Season
    • Winter: Very little rain, no snow, many deciduous trees still green or starting to change colours, some difference in day-length, frost relatively rare, less insects, no hurricanes, a few very tropical plants freeze
    • Spring: Little rain, no snow, deciduous trees regain leaves, frost non-existent, no hurricanes
  • Wet Season
    • Summer: Rain very often, hurricanes, some plants fry, little difference in day-length, more insects
    • Autumn: Occasional rain, few hurricanes, deciduous trees still green

Most buildings in Neapolita were kept at around 75°F or so. Air-conditioning was, in practice, almost mandatory for Neapolitan citizens, and heating as seen in the north was exceedingly rare, with many homes heated solely by the air-conditioner in "winter".
The equinoxes were more popular than the solstices in Neapolita because the equinoxes were the times when the conditions were most moderate, and because the winter and summer solstices differed in length by only four and a half hours, as opposed to how it is in climates in the north.
The growing-season was virtually year-round, with only a few days in January being too cold to really grow anything.
