Jump to: navigation, search

In Terry Pratchett's Discworld, Sto Plains is a rich country, full of silt and cabbage fields. Every inch is covered by neat little kingdoms. Like wriggling snakes, these kingdoms' borders are ever changing as formal wars, marriage pacts, complex alliances, and bad mapping change the political shape of the land. The thick, black, rich loam of the Sto Plains was constructed over aeons by periodic flooding of the River Ankh and every bit of it has at some time travelled along someone's alimentary canal.

Genua - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (256 words)
It is in an area called the Swamplands, some distance from the Sto Plains/Ramtops locations of most of the books.
The name Genua is likely based on Genoa, a city in Italy, however Genua bears a striking resemblance to the American South, especially New Orleans.
Genua was most likely established as a far flung colony of the Morporkian Empire, thus explaining why it shares more similarities with Ankh-Morpork/Sto Plains than its immediate neighbours Ɯberwald and Muntab.
