Lusankya is the largest continent in the world (excluding Antartica) by area and the largest by population. Lusankya is notable for not only overall large size and population, but unusually dense and large settlements as well as a closely-intertwined history. Lusankya has some of the largest disparities in economic terms, with some of the richest states by per capita (Belhavia and Arthurista) while also containing some of the poorest (notably Bogoria and Rodarion), where roughly 372 million people earn under $2 a day.

It is bounded on the east by the Central Ocean, on the west by the Victorian Ocean, on the south by the XX, and to the north the Artic Ocean.

It has 15 nations: Rodarion, Belfras, Arthurista, Eagleland, Epria, Bogoria, Basileria, Hornatyia, Leova, Sieuxerr, Austrasia, Dniegua, Temuair, Tule, Estovnia, and Belhavia.

Given its size and diversity, the concept of Lusankya—a name dating back to classical antiquity—may actually have more to do with human geography than physical geography. Lusankya varies greatly across and within its regions with regard to ethnic groups, cultures, environments, economics, historical ties and government systems.

North Lusankya

This specific cultural region, particularly important in world geopolitics and international economics and trade, is usually considered to encompass the nations of the Estovnia, Belhavia, Tule, Temuair, and Dniegua.

It is marked by developed nations with above-average economies and subarctic or Arctic climates.

Central Lusankya

Formerly a more obscure and less relevant cultural region, "Central Lusankya" has become more common due to the higher profile of the Papal Federation of Rodarion onto the geopolitical stage and economically in recent years since the start of the 21st century, as well as the proliferation of local conflict, violence, and crises in Bogoria and Bariya.

The boundaries between north and south Lusankya are more fluid and less-defined, but most geographers and political scientists follow the "Aascher Line" of Hornatyia and Basileria as forming the northern-most boundary of Central Lusankya and Leova, Carinthia, Bariya, and southern Epria forming the southern boundary of the geosociocultural region.

South Lusankya has been a focus of its own local conflicts as well as a hotbed for political violence and irredentism. Due to the Basilene Empire and Leova, the region is the center of Eastern Orthodox Christianity.

South Lusankya

Long a "crossroads of history" and hub of trade, South Lusankya is largely consistent of Rodarion, Belfras, Arthurista, and Eagleland. Northern Rodarion proper and northern Belfras-Eagleland are generally held to be the northern boundary of this cultural region. However many regionalists in Rodarion have included Carinthia and Bariya within the South Lusankyan area both through cultural and religious applications.

Notably due to the presence and 1.4 billion population of Rodarion, the region is the home and center of Romulan Catholicism. However, the subregion is also a home to the continent's major Protestant nations, including Belfras (Church of Belfras) and Arthurista (Church of Arthurista). In addition, a western branch of Eastern Orthodox Christianity resides in Eagleland.

Western Lusankya

The nations of Sieuxerr and Austrasia largely compose the western sub-region of the continent. Some regionalists include Dniegua, but most academics include Dniegua in North Lusankya.

Both countries are well-developed states with high-income economies, and in the Post-Great War era there has been little conflict or instability.

The subregion is considered the hub of Western Catholicism.
