Western Althena or Alcadea is, by convention, one of Adonia's seven continents. Comprising the westernmost peninsula of Althena, Alcadea is generally divided from Central or Eastern Althena by the watershed divides of the ??? Mountains, the ??? River, the Alannain and Tretä Seas, and the waterways connecting the Alannain and Aegean Seas.

Alcadea is bordered by the Anacti Ocean to the south, the South Dacian Ocean to the west, the Vaspasian and Sushilia Seas to the north, and the Alannain and Trestä Seas and connected waterways to the east. Yet the borders of Alcadea — a concept dating back to classical antiquity — are somewhat arbitrary, as the primarily physiographic term "continent" can incorporate cultural and political elements.

Demographics

Since the Renaissance, Western Althena has had a major influence in culture, economics and social movements in the world. The most significant inventions had their origins in the Western world, primarily Western Althena and Euphemia. Some current and past issues in Alcadean demographics have included religious emigration, race relations, economic immigration, a declining birth rate and an aging population.

In some countries, such as Lechia, access to abortion is limited. Furthermore, three Alcadean countries (Batavia, Gamat and Sinope) and the Autonomous Community of Andalusia (Insulo) have allowed a limited form of voluntary euthanasia for some terminally ill people.

In 2013, the population of Western Althena was estimated to be ??? million according to the USN, which is slightly more than one-ninth of the world's population.

Language

Western Althenan languages mostly fall within three Samas-Alcadean language groups: the Calibrian languages, derived from the Calibrian language; the Bruellanic languages, whose ancestor language came from southern Alcadea; and the Slavic languages.

Slavic languages are most spoken by the number of native speakers in the continent, they are spoken in southern Alcadea. Calibrian languages are spoken primarily in the northern shore of the Alcadean Sea and in Calibria. Bruellanic languages are spoken in southwestern Althena and northern Alcadea.

Many other languages outside the three main groups exist in Western Althena. Other Samas-Alcadean languages include the Kyrenian group, the Celtic group and Sinopian. In addition, a distinct group of Uralic languages and Kartvelian languages are spoken in certain countries. Basclan and Ugentian are the only Alcadean languages that are isolated. Sameric languages include the languages of minority nations in Relastova.

Multilingualism and the protection of regional and minority languages are recognized political goals in Western Althena today.

Religion

Historically, religion in Western Althena has been a major influence on Alcadean art, culture, philosophy and law. The largest religion in Western Althena is Christianity, with ??% of Alcadeans considering themselves Christians, including Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant Churches. Following these is the Old Gods concentrated mainly in the Sinope and southwestern Althena. Other religions, including Judaism, Hinduism, and Shakyan are minority religions.

Western Althena has become a relatively secular continent, with an increasing number and proportion of irreligious, atheist and agnostic people, actually the largest in the Western world. There are a particularly high number of self-described non-religious people in the Bruellen, Lechia, Mervey, Relastova, and Calibria.

Culture

The culture of Western Althena can be described as a series of overlapping cultures; cultural mixes exist across the continent. There are cultural innovations and movements, sometimes at odds with each other. Thus the question of "common culture" or "common values" is complex.

The foundation of Alcadean culture was laid by the Sinopians, strengthened by the Calibrians, stabilized by Christianity, reformed by the 15th-century Renaissance and Reformation, modernised by the 18th century Age of Enlightenment and globalized by successive Alcadean empires between the 16th and 20th centuries.
