Maltoria is defined by tropical isthmus just north of the planet's equator. The region is marked by lush forests and jungles that are home to most of the planet's life, sentient and nonsentient alike. Maltoria's capital city, Nova Arcadius, and its sprawling metropolitan area is the most densely populated zone, although the region's other cities are also quickly growing. Rhydonium refining plants and military installations make up the backbone of the region's economy, and tourism agencies are beginning to blossom along the unspoiled banks of Maltoria's two seas.
West of the isthmus, the middle continent flares out into a wide delta. Swamps and rivers give way to coastal jungles in the southern region, and the northern region is dotted with large farms and ranches that, along with fisheries on the coast, provide most of the planet's food. The southern swamps and jungles are rich with biodiversity. It is estimated that sixty percent of its plant and animal life have yet to be cataloged! New species are discovered each year thanks to the growth of the logging industry.
Half of all the fish consumed on Maltoria are harvested from the Southern Sea by fishing crews hailing from the southern polar tundra. The southernmost continent is famous for its Burra fisheries, some of which are the largest in the sector. The sparsely populated Maltoria Bush east of the southern ice shelf is home to a large population of D'oemir Bears, which outnumber sentients there twenty to one. The northern ice shelf is even less populated, with much of its territory designated a wilderness preserve.
