The Dominion of Litus (Lito) is a country occupying an area of Faeland known as The Shore (Costa Inglés to its Valadurian neighbors), roughly contiguous to the Fhendiac Escarpment, extending from just south of New Norwich in the north to the Orwel Isles in the south. It is bounded on the west by its neighbors, Ríocht Fíl and Valaduria and on the east and south by the Bay of Biscay.

The land occupied by Lito was inhabited for millennia by various aboriginal (Fáel) tribes. Beginning in the 16th century, British expeditions settled the coast and became the nucleus of the population and culture that comprises Lito today. In 1802, a Kingdom of Faeland was established as part of the United Kingdom. Following civil strife and ultimately independence in 1925, it became the Dominion of Litus.

Unlike most former British colonies, Lito was a functioning member nation of the United Kingdom. As such, its internal administration was modeled on the English system, eschewing the usual federation of provinces. A constitutional monarchy comprising ---, Lito is a parliamentary democracy and a constitutional monarchy, recognizing the British monarch in a special manner as Monarch in Litus, not of Litus (See Treaty of London).

Lito is monolingual and a largely homogeneous country by Faelish standards. Technologically advanced and fully industrialized Georgetown is the heart of Litan economy, culture and politics. Lito possesses a narrow economy that is heavily reliant upon its fishing industry and upon trade— particularly with the U.K., France, and Spain, with which Lito has had a long and complex relationship.

History

For much of its early history, English colonies of The Shore were overshadowed by the large port of New Norwich, farther north. The smaller towns that sprang up before the Fhendiac Escarpment were largely the result of ancillary needs of the English Royal Navy. Mining became a principal activity in the nineteenth century, as well as many practical trades like sailmaking, shipbuilding, etc (it was the advent of rail that allowed timbers from the interior easy portage to the area). Many sailors who jumped ship and faced prosecution in England could find work here, where government was -for a long time- largely absent or lax.

A: The whole idea behind palimpsest was to get over the fetish of the single original philosoph— I don't think that we should throw the idea of origins out the window, as for example is done in certain post-structuralist thinkers, or indeed really across the board in modern scientific discourse. In other words, origins are mythological, and comparative mythology still has a great deal to teach us, obviously. We still live in a world which generates mythology, even though people don't realize it. So origins are important, whether for positive or negative reasons, and my idea of the palimpsest was that it inscribes origins upon origins, and every origin that is potentially interesting should be added to the text, and although I don't literally write on top of writing -- although it might be an interesting experiment -- I do sort of encourage the readers to try to stack these origins or conceptual elements up in their minds as they read, and try to entertain them simultaneously. As the Red Queen told Alice in Wonderland, you have to entertain six impossible ideas before breakfast."
