Cortland was discovered by Queen Elaine in 1999, Queen Elaine was doing a race around the world and there was a huge storm so she had to find a place to stay, she saw an island and sailed into the shore.
When she got there she found footprints and followed them and she got to a tribe village.
The tribes spoke a language that was very dodgy!
In 2003 Queen Elaine went back to England and told people to come with her if they want to live there.
When they got there they made city’s called Cortvale (The capital) , colon and marsep!
The country was made by a underwater volcano that erupted in 1983 Â and formed volcanic rocks that created a rocky island and in 1993 it turned into an actual island.
There were quite a few animals that lived there, there was:
Wolves, Pigs, Cows, Rabbits, Â sheep, monkeys,Wild Boars and Foxes.
In 2006 the island formed a mountain called alapouse and it was open for skiing in 2007!
in 2008 they found that the volcano that created the island is still active so they were worried, after a whileÂ the volcano had become extinct and everyone moved back to live there!
In 2009 a president called sir Nigel became ruler of the country,Â in 2009 a couple days after the president became ruler a huge oil spill happened. It took until 2010 to be cleaned up.
The country now produces pure carrots and chocolate!
Today things are doing quite well!
