Fádalh (Fádallan: Páadtal, /fɐ̀:tɐl/), officially the Republic of Fádalh (Fádallan: whatever), is an island country located off the east coast of Boroso, east of the Fals Empire and south of the Joint Republic of Pthalk. With 9,870 residents in an approximately 365 square-kilometre (140.93 sq mi) area, Fádalh is both one of the smallest nations in terms of population and one of the smallest nations by land area.

Originally settled by colonists from the Great Dhweran Empire in 1215, Fádalh first gained independence in 1233, following the Great Dhweran Empire's collapse. Fádalh was left mostly undisturbed for the next 180 years. Towards the turn of the 1600s, Letzia began claiming a series of colonies along the east coast of Boroso, including annexing Fádalh. Largely unable to defend against Letzia, Fádalh remained under their control until 1853, when the uniting of the Fals Empire resulted in Letzia being largely driven out of Khaazland and their influence in east Boroso being weakened. In 1861, Fádalh declared independence from Letzia and has remained independent since.

Fádalh, though commonly referred to as an island, is actually a small archipelago, consisting of more than 50 islands in a small cluster. The islands are of volcanic origin, being formed an estimated 1.8-1.2 million years ago and having last erupted 200,000-60,000 years ago. Despite being extinct, the volcanoes are still present in the form of numerous thermal springs scattered across the islands and in the surrounding waters. The springs, fed mainly by seawater, are high in salt and other mineral content.

Etymology

The name Páadtal in the Fádallan language is of unknown origin, though it has been postulated that it is related to a suffix denoting a place, -aali [ɐ:l].

History

Prior to colonisation of the islands by the Great Dhweran Empire in 1215, the islands were uninhabited.
