Tangia (Ay. Tangua/Τανγυα /'taŋwa/ "Tangua") oficially the State of Tangia (Ay. Teileā i Tangua/Τηλεά υ Τανγυα /'tejlea i 'taŋwa/), internally known rather as Tangua Hō’ūm/Τανγυα Χό'ύμ (ay. /'taŋwa hoːʔuːm/) - empire located on a large island south of Kyon's equator, west from its supercontinent. Known as the country of crossbows, the national ordinance, and lights, due to mass use of luminescent fluids collected from endemic animals (mainly amphibians) for production of light-emitting paint. Country known for its powerful navy and expansive behaviour towards oceanic countries. Inhabited by Tangians (Tanguarai/Τανγυαραι). It is located on the whole island bearing the same name (Nēimi i Tangua/Νήμι υ Τανγυα "Wyspa Tangia"), the Remote Isles Group, and colonies. Giant armadillos (glyptodonts) are native to the island.
Tangia is a highly developed country with great handle of writing, it is the largest supplier of paper and ink in its part of the world. Its metalwork is highly valued. The country grasped optics, protecting the gained knowledge about scopes and telescopes for itself. A police-state with army as the highest importance. Tangia has a huge naval force (called Takatōa), possibly the largest in the world, and it is close to invincible on the seas (only the Secht Confederation, in defence, twice sunk the Tangian navy). On land, Tangian army is also formiddable, albeit more developed countries can defeat it.
The word Tangia is of unknown original. It has been interpreted as the common name of the sea-folk, although it most likely is a later-coined interpretation. No related words are known in the Ayu language.
Between the English name "Tangia" and the original Ayu "Tangua" there is a vowel difference, the original "u" is pronounced as "i", this is a change to make the country name similar to names of many regions in the English language, where names often end in -ia.
