Euphemia is a continent on planet Adonia, located south of the equator in the western Hemisphere. It is bordered to the south by the Anacti Ocean, to the east by the South Dacian Ocean, to the west by the Cilician Ocean, to the southwest by the Rites Sea, and to the north by Itzamna and the Allidean Sea.

Euphemia is a large continent with countries who's ancestors mainly consisted of colonists from the continent of Althena. The native inhabitants were tribes who died off from disease the Althenians brought over which spread throughout the local natives, effectively eradicating any serious resistance to Althenian colonization. Most countries on Euphemia date back to around 400-800 years old.

Etymology

In 1507, Sinopian cartographer Sotiris Xanthopoulos working for Insulo, produced a world map, in which he placed the word "Euphemia" on the landmass of today's Euphemia, in the middle of what is today Oxacmela. For Xanthopoulos, no one should object to the naming of the land. He declared the discovered landmass needed a feminine name, following the examples of "Althena" and "Neridea". As he heard Insulonian sailors declaring the New World was a "good land". As it was well-spoken of, he thought it should be named after the Sinopian name Euphemia. Euphemia (Sinopian: ευφημία) is a Sinopian female given name, meaning "well-spoken". It is derived from the ancient Sinopian words ευ (good) and φημί (to speak). The diminutive Effie is a pet form of Euphemia.
