Appearance / LandscapeIn the city that Samantha's family lives in, it has several large trees growing between the buildings, with several roads lined with streetlamps weaving between the buildings.
A picture of Anoterra from space can be seen on a poster in The Journey Begins.
Dingian Polt, also known as the Catinent, is the largest continent on Anoterra and the only one that lacks a royal family.
Dingian Polt is overrun with cats, now evolved into Anoterran Cats. The population of Anoterran Cats on Catinent is estimated to be at least three billion and the continent itself is feared due to the savage behaviour of the inhabitants. Other countries faired better with the Anoterran Cats, being an uncommon pet and a few strays with some aggressive behaviour, but they are nowhere near as threatening as the ones in Dingian Polt.
According to Samantha in Uneasy Entry, Anoterra has three moons.
Locations on Anoterra
Thousands of years ago, Dingian Polt was populated by Oviphomos like anywhere else on Anoterra. When Earth cats were introduced to Anoterra to be pets and help keep pests at bay, they inhabited Dingian Polt exclusively, but were introduced to other countries quickly.
However, over the next few years, several of the Earth cats escaped and became strays. The stray cats bred at an unbelievable rate, expanding the population of wild cats to a huge number and the Oviphomos couldn't keep up, with Dingian Polt becoming overrun with wild cats, which started changing in behaviour, becoming aggressive to Oviphomos.
Once the first death of an Oviphomo due to the cats was recorded, the Oviphomos attempted to get the wild cats under control. This ended badly as the cats kept breeding, growing in numbers and many more Oviphomos were killed by them.
The King of Dingian Polt formally decided to give up trying to get the cats under control and ordered all inhabitants to abandon Dingian Polt and take measures to ensure that it doesn't repeat in other countries.
During 2012, Anoterra was mentioned to be having a talent contest taking place.
