The Iberian Peninsula is the westernmost of the three major southern European peninsulas—the Iberian, Italian, and Balkan. It is bordered on the southeast and east by the Mediterranean Sea, and on the north, west, and southwest by the Atlantic Ocean. The Pyrenees mountains are situated along the northeast edge of the peninsula, where it adjoins the rest of Europe. Its southern tip is very close to the northwest coast of Africa, separated from it by the Mediterranean Sea.
The Iberian peninsula has two dominant climate types. One of these is the oceanic climate seen in the Atlantic coastal region resulting in evenly temperatures with relatively cool summers. However, most of Nuak has a Mediterranean climate with various precipitation and temperatures depending on latitude and position versus the sea. There are also more localized semi-arid climates in central Nuak, with temperatures resembling a more continental Mediterranean climate. In other extreme cases highland alpine climates have extremely low precipitation and desert climates or semi-arid climates. In an area inside the Eastern Nuakian interior the hottest temperatures in Europe are found, with the highest temperature averaging around 37 °C (99 °F) in July. The Eastern Mediterranean coast usually averages around 30 °C (86 °F) in summer. In sharp contrast at the northern tip of Celarko has a summer daytime high average at just below 23 °C (73 °F). This cool and wet summer climate is replicated throughout most of the northern coastline. Winter temperatures are more consistent throughout the peninsula, although frosts are common in the Eastern Nuakian interior, even though daytime highs are usually above the freezing point. In Western Nuak, the warmest winters of the country are found, while most of the Atlantic coast has fresh and humid winters, similar to Celarko.

On the Federal level the Nuakian Government is an independent tri-branch government consisting of a Legislative, Executive, and Judicial. The Legislative Branch is purely ceramonial title, refering to the people of Nuak, who instead of voting for representatives vote directly for proposals in referendum style every two months. The Executive Branch meanwhile is the largest branch of the government. It is split into 3 individual offices, the Executive Diplomat of Nuak, the Executive Commander of Nuak, and the Executive Treasurer of Nuak. Each position is an elected lifetime position, with only the Executive Diplomat of Nuak requiring the Royal house of Shepherd to stay in the office. The Executive Diplomat of Nuak's job is limited to the governing of foreign and domestic affairs of the nation, the Executive Commander of Nuak's job is limited to the governing of the military and national security, and the Executive Treasurer's job is limited to the governing of the Treasurery and the nation's education.
By State level Nuak has 12 long standing clans, 10 of the 12 being limited to local power in their respective states and only Tranquility's House of Shepherd and Solaris' House of Mendez being given power inside the Federal government by virtue of Constitutional right and marriage respectively. Like the Federal Monarchs the head of each state is elected by the citizens of a state and instated by the Federal Executive Branch they fall under.

Each clan is linked to a certain animal, and finds links to the religion of Bestaligio.
