There is little doubt that you have heard of Florida,  home to Walt Disney World, the Everglades, and Saint Augustine; North Americas oldest city. You’re probably familiar with the nearly 700 miles of beaches, maybe you have stayed in one of the 350,000 hotel rooms, or you’re one of the 1000 people that move to Florida each and every day. 

Edging out New York in 2014; Florida is the most populated State East of the Mississippi River. The population increase in Florida is mostly due to the overwhelming draw of warm weather, no state income tax, and the lore of Orlampaland.  Orlampaland? Yes, Orlampaland. Orlampaland is awesome.

Making up the bulk of what is the state of Florida, Orlampaland offers residents and visitors the planets most unique environments; both natural and man made. You say you’ve never heard of Orlampaland, but you have just by other verbage and vernacular.

Orlampaland has become home to people from all over the planet; a true mixing pot that everyone wants to be a part of, a global destination transforming the modern age. Orlampaland is primed to continue the often unbelievable story of Florida. 

Orlampaland is bordered by Georgia, West Florida, the Gulf of Mexico, the Island of South Florida, and the Atlantic Ocean.

Water is everywhere and plays an important part in our story, both our past and future are shaped by the ebs and flow of the water in and around the state of Florida and the Orlampaland area. Orlampaland is in it’s entirety is located within what was once considered to be East Florida. Once upon a time, long, long ago…

Flashback sequence, just imagine your imagination imagining a flashback.

The year was 1513 as three ships made their way West in search of new lands and stuff to discover. Juan Ponce de Leon was the primary financier for this expedition to search for the rumoured islands West of Puerto Rico. Legend says Ponce de Leon was looking for the Fountain of Youth, some say he named it; La Florida. 

Skipping ahead; Spain controlled Florida but then gave it to England, who split the territory into East and West Florida, the British ruled over the territory until giving it back to Spain, but only to have Spain give Florida to the United States in 1819. Florida was admitted into the United States as the 27th state in 1845, but less than 20 years later in 1861 seceded from the Union. After a period of Civil War, Florida was readmitted into the Union in 1868 and that pretty much catches us up on occupying authority. Things have been honky dorey ever since; at least on the surface.

Orlampaland is graced with a spectacular location and amazing neighbors. Directly North of Orlampaland is the great state of Georgia and the only border of Orlampaland with land. This waterless border is what connects Orlampaland with the mainland of the United States of America.
