Millania is located in Alcalá Municipality in the Valle del Cauca Department, on the Cordillera Central, between the latitudes of and 5° N, and longitudes 75° and 76° W, in central Colombia. The total land area of Millania is approximately 0.41884 km2 , of which 0.202057 km² is the Mainland (or Mainland Occidental) region, and the remainder consists of the Eastern (or Mainland Oriental) region. The Lake Valencia is also located near the capital. Millania is situated within the Colombian coffee growing axis, registered as a World Heritage Site. The entirety of Millania’s coastline and land border stretches 5.13 km on the Andaman Sea, Tai Tam Harbor and the Carribean Sea.

Millania's unpopulated territories consist of Alvaroa, Aguasfrías, Aguia, and San Nicolás, all of which are in the Andean departments of Antioquia and Risaralda and share similar geologic, ecologic, and climate traits to the Mainland, Avilia, which is in the elevated city of Bogotá, Potomac, which is situated nearby the Potomac river Maryland, Tsizau, which is located in Hong Kong, and Millanian Rattanakosin, which is in Phuket.

Geography

Millania is located within a valley, yet is still far above sea level. Millania is surrounded to the south by the Yiti and Calocho forests, consistent mainly of bamboo-like trees, and by hedge walls to the west, Millania's largest man made structure. The south is also bordered by the River Alcalá, the main source of water in the region, running from the west to the east. steep hills run up from the northwestern regions, from the northern prefectures of Alcália and Nortela. The southeastern prefecture of Sur De Calocho is a flat grassland which extends to the banks of the River Alcalá. Central Millania, specifically De Calocho, consists of one large hill, Calocho Hill, which is the highest point in Millania. Blanceta is a large patch of gravel, which extends from the center to the east of the nation.

Oriental Prefectures

The Oriental Prefectures, consistent of Seilung Gong and Saam Fushan are located in Hong Kong, between the latitudes of 22° and 23° N, and longitudes 114° and 115° E. The land area of the region is approximately 0.785405 km2. The Oriental Prefectures consist of multiple small enclaves speckled around Hong Kong. Undeveloped terrain is hilly to mountainous, with very little flat land, and consists mostly of woodland, or shrubland. The vast majority of the land, however, is developed and within the bounds of apartment complexes.

Geology

According to experts in Colombia, in the Triassic Period of the 186-million-year-long Mesozoic Era, which began 252 million years ago, the sea that occupied the Andean zone separated into two parts after the Cordillera Central, the range Millania is situated in, rose. The Cordillera Central formed from the Guiana shield during the Paleozoic era with intrusions from granite and metamorphism. During the Cenozoic Era, which began about 66 million years ago, the seas withdrew from Millania's territory, and enormous granite masses formed along the Cordillera Occidental, the mountain range to Millania's west.

The geology of the Oriental Prefectures are dominated by igneous rocks (including granitic rocks and volcanic rocks) formed during a major volcanic eruption period in the Mesozoic era. Minor seismic activity occurs sometimes, the most recent earthquake being on 5 December 2019, which took place at 12.22pm and lasting just a few seconds, its epicenter between Cheung Chau and Lamma Island at 1.4 magnitude. Two reports of vibrations were collected by the government from citizens.

Climate

Millania is located in the Andes mountains, making it prone to cold weather. It is often sunny with a relatively large chance of rain (Köppen Cfb). In most of the mountainous regions, the climate is mainly warm and wet. In particular, the climate of the Mainland geographical region is mostly rainy, with cool winters and hot summers. The average temperature in Millania is 23.1 °C (73.6 °F). The Carribean region generally fits the Mediterranean climate type.

The Oriental Prefectures have a humid subtropical climate (Köppen Cwa). Summer is hot and humid, with occasional showers and thunderstorms and warm air from the southwest. Typhoons occur most often then, sometimes resulting in floods, such as the Great Flood of Pasabrillo, which left around 20 Millanians stranded in Pasabrillo, unable to make a safe passage back to their homes. Winters are mild and usually sunny at the beginning, becoming cloudy towards February; an occasional cold front brings strong, cooling winds from the north. The most temperate seasons are spring (which can be changeable) and autumn, which is generally sunny and dry. When there is snowfall, which is extremely rare, it is usually at high elevations.

Ecosystem

The Millanian ecosystem is diverse; about 140 documented species of vascular plants occur in the Andean and Carribean regions, and over 40 species of flowering plants are found. Millania is home to many mammal, avian, reptile, and amphibian species. About 150 insect species have been described. It is estimated that there are at least 100 other undocumented species in the region. There are six national parks. The most prominent agencies aiding in the conservation of Millania's ecosystem are the National Park Service (SPN), the Wildlife Conservation Agency (WCA), and the Marine Research Agency (MRA), all of which were founded in 2018 on the same day.

The Oriental Prefectures have a megadiverse ecosystem; over 300 species of vascular plants occur in the region (20 of which are native to Hong Kong), and hundreds of insect, avian, and marine species. It is estimated that at least 200 other undocumented species are in the region. A popular species in the Oriental Prefectures is the wild boar, which often is seen roaming the streets of the prefectures.

By far the most popular and well known ecosystem is that of Millanian Rattanakosin. According to the Millanian Marine Research Agency's 2019 dive off the coast of Marathana, there are approximately 40 identifiable species of tropical fish, 8 species of jellyfish, 140 species of coral and sea plants, 5 species of mollusks and crustaceans, and two species of reptile. There are also approximately 75 documented species of vascular plants, 35 species of flowering plant, 45 species of insect, and many mammal, amphibian, and avian species. It is estimated that at least 300 other undocumented species exist in the region. In early 2020, a sea turtle climbed onto the beach in Rattanakosin (Ban Nai Thon), and laid exactly 200 eggs. The Thai Government sent a group of conservationists without the consent of the Millanian Government and took the eggs to a safe location in nearby Sirinath National Park. This day is widely celebrated as the first time a turtle has come back to the beach since 1970.
