Welcome to endless, intriguing, beguiling India. A landmass located on the subcontinent of Asia, the tectonic plate of which creates the mighty Himalayas and the Tibetan plateau. Main artery of income for the East India Trading Company, which in turn wields excessive, disproportionate influence in London, generally with little concern for subtlety.

This encompasses modern-day Pakistan and Bangladesh, as well as what we now know as India.
