Map of New North Wales (Etusk Delta)

New North Wales is mostly flat and is a river basin for the River Austin that has its mouth in the Etusk Bay. Its highest point is the 279-metre Rukanran near Hyle Heblo. The entirety of the state lies on the Great Ostrobian Plains that provides fertile land for farming and is the largest farming field in Ostrobia. The state shares borders with Maine which the River Oreomond marks the border between the two states outside the National Territory. As the Oreomond diverts out in to Northern Ostrobia, a small 8 km border between Northern Ostrobia exists.
