Sheeplandia is the westernmost borough of Ceticilia and the only one in the Americas. It is located in the United States of America and surrounded on all sides by Miami-Dade county. It is currently home to the Ceticilian President Mia Torres. During its history it has swapped hands many times starting out as a Ceticilian city, then declaring independence, followed by annexation by Altanniauntil it ultimately ended up as a borough of Ceticilia again, thanks to the EXP 2021-001 request.

Etymology

Sheeplandia's name was coined by Taylor Mia Torres and is a reference to her like of sheep. The -ia suffix was added for unknown reasons. Sheeplandia is one of the oldest boroughs in Ceticilia to retain its original name.

History

Sheeplandia was founded by Taylor Mia Torres to become part of Ceticilia as its westernmost city. It remained so for a while until problems with the local cartography and Torres' subsequently declaring independence. This independence wouldn't last long though as not long after it declared independence the (then) Empire of Altannia Unita saw an opportunity to expand their borders. Years later, in 2021, Sheeplandia declared itself to not be a part of Altannia and rejoined Ceticilia as its new westernmost borough on 22 February 2021. (21 February 2021 local time)

It is the only Ceticilian borough to be that low-lying and gets the most tropic storms out of every Ceticilian borough.
