Laurentia, officially known as the State of Laurentia (Ovancian: L'État de Laurentie) is one of the federal constituent states of the Congressional Republic of Brigantica. It is the third largest state in terms of population and the largest in terms of territory. Its capital city is Mont-Ste.-Jeanne, colloquially referred to as Jeannie, which is the first walled citadel on the continent and the only remaining walled city with its fortifications fully intact. Ville-Marie, the largest city, is a diverse and large city spread out over several islands on the main river system into the Brigantic mainland and forms the backbone of Laurentia's multiculturalism and the state's primary cosmopolitan city. By contrast, rural Laurentia is primarily mono- or bi-cultural between Laurentian Ovancians or Métis, the mixed-race descendants of Europeans and Indigenous populations in Laurentia.

Laurentia shares a border with the three other federal states, Anderin to the east, Dánamara to the southeast and Argecia to the south, and has a coastline stretching from tip of the La-Fin-du-Monde peninsula down to the Cherokee Gulf.

While the state's substantial natural resources have long been the mainstay of its economy, with the state's vast territory and resource-rich La-Fin-du-Monde and interior mountain regions, sectors of the knowledge economy such as aerospace, information and communication technologies, biotechnology, and the pharmaceutical industry also play leading roles in and outside the major metropolitan areas.



Laurentia's topography is exceedingly varied and diverse, depending largely on soil characteristics, climate and topography. While the coastal and riverine cities have a predominantly connected urban landscape, the south of Laurentia is known primarily as the breadbasket of Brigantica and the north of Laurentia features extensive alpine features and large untouched arboreal as well as temperate forests. The agricultural center of Laurentia is in the major valleys along the windward side of the Vert-Monts subject to plentiful orogenic precipitation, with the largest and well-known fruit-growing regions in northern Brigantica being the Sagerac River Valley, famous for both its wines and its dairy production.

Laurentia has one of the world's largest reserves of fresh water, occupying 12% of its surface. It has a sizeable portion of the world's renewable fresh water, whereas it has only 0.1% of its population. More than half a million lakes, including 30 with an area greater than 250 square kilometres (97 sq mi), and 4,500 rivers pour their torrents into the Great Northern Sea.

The Sagerac and Chaudière Rivers have some of the world's largest sustaining inland ports at Ville-Marie, Fjords-de-Sagerac, and Mont-Ste.-Jeanne (the capital). Its direct and most-navigable links between the world's ocean systems and the deep interior of Brigantica made it the base of early Sieuxerrian exploration and settlement in the 16th and 17th centuries.

Typical Laurentian landscape

Laurentia features a variety of climate regions. The most common is the humid continental region dominating most of Central Laurentia and providing for mostly temperate vegetation zones. Boreal climate predominates much of La-Fin-du-Monde in the northern cape of the state, much as with conditions on the Anderin side of the peninsula, while boreal alpine climate is also common among the extensive mountain ranges of the state's interior. The intermontane region between the bifurcated branches of the Laurentide and Verts-Monts ranges is a dry continental climate irrigated by subterranean aquifers which are an extension of the riverine systems throughout the rest of the state; this region primarily specializes in wheat and grain agriculture. The southern portion of the river valleys forms a mild pseudo-mediterranean climate region where abundant precipitation and sunlight create what's known as Laurentia's "fruit belt". The coastal regions, particularly along the Nouvelle-Maine shore near the state capital region, are predominantly humid maritime climate.
