'''Qualdomailor''' (natively ''Cwaldewmăjlor'' [kwaɫdɛʊ̯ˈməɪ̯lor]), officially the '''Communist Republic of Qualdomailor''' (''iă nJăwțarnẹdarficu niă nNăaqappartut căiši Cwaldeumăjlor'' [iə̯ ˌnjəʊ̯tsarˌnɛdarˈfiku niə̯ nːəaˌqapparˈtut kəˈiʃɪ kwaɫdɛʊ̯ˈməɪ̯lor]), is a country in central Márusúturon, a continent of Calémere. It borders, clockwise from the north, Ylvostydh, Brono, and the Chlouvānem Inquisition; its western borders are maritime, on the Skyrdegan Inner Sea, more precisely the two inlets called Western Sea (''ivulit căd ittungaq'', a.k.a. High Ivulit in Chlouvānem sources) and (its southernmost part) Southern Passage Gulf (''ciswulit căd allațeă sa nănngiup'', a.k.a. Little Ivulit), which divide it from the countries of Leñ-ṱef, Ebed-dowa, and Oempras. Most of its current borders are mountainous, with the country's highest peak, Mount Šuvăṛuc (''păsjănngul Šuvăṛuc'' or ''nărja Šuvăṛuc''; <small>[[Chlouvānem|Chl.]]: ''šūlābdeyān ga ñaryāh''</small>), on the Chlouvānem border and very close to the tripoint with Brono, being 3.ᘔƐ2 pā (6758<sub>10</sub> = about 7021.5 m) high.
Qualdomailor lies almost entirely between latitudes 30° and 39°N, and mostly has a mediterranean climate; its southernmost point is just about one mile south of the 30th parallel north. The country may be divided, thanks to its various mountain chains, in three distinct zones: the Arănngallaq plain, along the Vălțẹšp river, which lies in the central-northern part of the country and is its most densely populated part; the long but narrow western coast; and the central highlands, which are river basins that ultimately all drain into the western coast through two major rivers - the Qasivănnẹq in the central part and the Ọrăisărpiq in the far south<ref>The final stretch of the Ọrăisărpiq river (in Chl. ''Årayīsarpīka ga maita''), after the canyons, also marks a small section of the border between Qualdomailor and the Chlouvānem Inquisition.</ref> - that cut through the mountains in impressive canyon systems.<br/>The two largest cities, Cănțe Inarviut ("City of the East", the capital), and Arvallivăt ("Red Castle"), lie in the Arănngallaq plain.
Qualdomailor, today, is a linguistically and religiously homogeneous country, with 96% of its inhabitants being religiously [[Verse:Yunyalīlta|Yunyalīlti]]. Historically predominantly inhabited by the Qualdomelics, in the half century since the Kaiṣamā era there has been a steady influx of Chlouvānem people, so that 81.5% of its population is Qualdomelic, 17% Chlouvānem, and the remaining 1.5% of other ethnic backgrounds. Qualdomelic is the only nationwide official language - [[Chlouvānem]] is only official in the four southern regions, but it is widely spoken as a L2 also by native Qualdomelics due to its status as lingua franca of the Eastern bloc and sacred language of the Yunyalīlta. At the last census in 6418 (six years ago), the population amounted to 39,838,427 people; according to more recent estimates, it has grown to slightly more than 40 million people.
