The Name Nabia is derived from the name of the goddess of rivers in ancient Caxigan mythology, Navia. The Caxigan tribes that settled in the river valleys of what is now North-Central Nabia during the early iron age worshiped Navia as their principal deity. This religious practice, unique among Caxigan groups, eventually led the people and the area in which they inhabited to be named after the deity.
The climate of Nabia is fairly uniform, with minor regional variation occurring due to proximity to the western coast of Illypnia and latitude. The Eastern-most and largest area of the county features a temperate continental climate, classified by the Köppen–Geiger climate classification system as Dfa and Dfb. There is significant seasonal variation within this region, with warm to hot summers and cold winters. The majority of precipitation in this climate occurs during the summer, with average monthly precipitation peaking during the month of January. Winters are generally cold and dry, with sub-zero average temperatures during the months of June and July. Significant winter precipitation is relatively rare outside of the southeastern-most regions, but minor snowfall is common throughout eastern Adonia during winter.
The only other climate type present in Nabia is a temperate oceanic climate, Köppen classification Cfb, characterized by mild summers and cool winters. The climate predominates in the western third of the country, and becomes more pronounced with proximity the western coast of the continent. The extreme seasonal temperature and precipitation variation of the interior gives way to a much milder, regular climate in the coastal regions. Rainfall is also fairly consistent throughout the year, with a the driest period falling in late summer and early autumn. Snowfall and other forms of winter precipitation are not uncommon during the winter months in this region, but accumulation is usually minimal.
Nabia consists of 18 provinces, the first-order administrative division in the country. These provinces follow geographic, cultural, and historic borders and do not equally distribute population or land area. The 18 provinces, with exception of Xana, which consists of a single county, are subdivided into a number of counties. These counties are further subdivided into a number of municipalities and councils, which are jointly the third-order administrative divisions of the country.
