Adatan was a Colonial settlement of the Netherlands and Britain. Originaly discovered by the Dutch explorer Abel Tasman it was cited as a suitable place for a Dutch Colony. A British colony was also established in Adatan. The native Polynesian population was relatively small and were easliy oppressed. The settlers still embarked on a genocidal campaign on the natives. They imprisioned them and brought them to the settlements. Originally they were brought there to be worked to death but soon some were released and integrated into the communites. They were highly discriminated against and formed there own communites. It wasnt untill the late 20th Century that they were recognised as citizens and given equal rights to all parts of the country. The colonies were well supported by their colonial powers. The idea of unifing the colonies arose in 1821 when a dutch leader decided it would be more productive if the Dutch colonies joined. This happened in 1829 when the Great Floods of 1829 occurred, the flood destroyed the Northern Dutch Colony of Utrecht this put it at risk of invasion by the British. So the absorbed the two colonies together. Attempts by the Dutch colonies to unite the whole of Adatan did not bear fruit until the Dutch managed to open a path of land between the two parts of the Dutch colony after invading the British and Spliting their colony in half. The British were eventually forced to withdrawal leaving their colony to the Dutch. In 1855 the prince of Adatan was proclaimed King soon after the Kingdom of Adatan broke away from the Netherlands. Becoming an absolute monarchy. After WW2 the Kingdom set about improving its army after the near invasion by the Japanese.The Kingdom was hit hard by a Depression, most of the country was below the poverty line. The government tried to fix the situation by creating public works projects like the Tallaharte Air force Base and Flood defenses to create employment. This scheme worked untill the Kingdom was swamped in debt and had to curtail projects. It was escalated in 1967 when floods ravaged the country and destroyed its crops. Then in 1975 the Kingdom grew wary of their monarchy and protests for change began. The government ignored them and in 1985 a reveloution began was hard fought and most of the Gunfighting was restricted to the Capital, eventually the monarchy abdicated and a new government was formed. They formed the Republic of Adatan. After the new government was formed the country was stronger than ever and flourished under the new government. The economy performed strong and there was lots of new developments. The country experienced the Golden age of Development with high Human development and Prosperity for the Nation.

The main fertile areas are the Centraal Lowlands the New Holland plains and Utrecht plains. The British found farming the lowlands difficult because of the low lying nature and poor draining soils. The Dutch however were used to low lying land and thrived with the space. The mountains of Adatan are usually snow-capped and rise to over 1000 meters above sea level.
