Map of San Gerardo and surroundings.
The island of San Gerardo is located off the southern coast of the Balearic Island of Mallorca. With a population of just over a million spread across two metropolitan cities and several dozen small fishing villages, San Gerardo is one of the world's most densely populated islands in the world. The city was originally founded by Greek colonists in the 8th century BCE and has remained populated ever since.
The population of Siccalium and Santa Julieta are primarily of Greek and Spanish origin. The region has been an area of cultural conflation for centuries as Greek Platonism and Latin Christianity dueled for the intellectual throne for centuries. The island was briefly held by the the Berber empire and enjoyed an influx of philosophical and scientific ideas from the east as Baghdad. As such, Siccalium and Santa Julieta have always been a small but crucial stop in the exchange of knowledge and culture between Islamic North Africa and Christian Europe.   cityhall
