[font=Times New Roman][color=28191A][size=105]Baratochi, (バラトチ), received its name from the native Fūzuki Bara, a member of the Rose Family (Hibiscus Rosa-Fuzium) that grows everywhere throughout the Baratochin Nation. Baratochi directly translates into 'Land of the Roses' in Strangerelean. '[i]Bara[/i]' meaning [i]Roses[/i], and '[i]tochi[/i]' meaning [i]Land of the[/i].[/size][/color][/font]

[font=Times New Roman][color=28191A][size=105]Spanning just under half a million square miles of land, Baratochi has a wide variety of geography ranging from mountains and jungles to deserts and swamps. The southwest portion of the country is heavily forested with rainforest, with swamps spread around the Hābesutāgawa River, reaching inland from the innermost inlet. Carving the south in half and reaching far northwards into the Hottomatsu Forests are the Shinchiyama Mountains. With the highest point at 14,025 feet above sea level, the Shinchiyama Mountains have an average height of feet above sea level at 7,205. The mountains are made of three distinct sections. The Western half of the mountains, which remain the lushness of the jungle with moss-filled environments and tropical animals and flora. The central and northern regions contain the highest sections of the mountain range and have much colder, harsher climates then the others. Lastly, on the eastern side of the mountains, they are much more arid before spreading out into rocky deserts. On the east side of the Shinchiyama Mountains are the desert portions of the Seitokuken State. Almost half of the lands east of the Shinchiyamas are rocky deserts. Portions right next to the Osean Great Lakes and gripping the Cascade coast are much cooler and harbor more temperate climates. Going up the north, the tropical rainforest and arid lands dissolve into much more temperate areas, that are home to the Baratochin Moyamatsu 'Mist Pine'. Several major rivers flow from the Shinchiyamas Mountains that go east or west. The untamable rivers of the West provide the western half of the country with the water needed to sustain the rainforest, while the lackluster rivers in much of the east justify the dry climate.[/size][/color][/font]
