Antarctica is Earth's southernmost continent. It contains the geographic South Pole and is situated in the Antarctic region of the Southern Hemisphere, almost entirely south of the Antarctic Circle, and is surrounded by the Southern Ocean. Antarctica has no indigenous population and there is no evidence that it was seen by humans until the 19th century. The masters of Antarctica for thousands of years have been the penguins, where they are now preserved with contracts by most countries. In this game the claims of UK overlap with Argentina and Chile, but are separated to fit the game engine. The unlaimed territory (in blue) is attributed to USA and Planeta 42. Other country claims include:
Brazil has a designated "zone of interest" that is not an actual claim.
Peru has formally reserved its right to make a claim.
Russia has inherited the Soviet Union's right to claim territory under the original Antarctic Treaty.
South Africa has formally reserved its right to make a claim.
United States reserved its right to make a claim in the original Antarctic Treaty.
