TIME TRAVEL BY THE ANTEDILUVIAN GIANTS

A billion years ago, as it is written in the histories of Quantus Qwo, scribe of the moon, Gwog, a noble cave man of Gondwanaland, himself the postmaster of the Gondwanese people, was met by Aelurus, the first Time Traveler from the Moon on a journey back to the early periods of Earth's history.

After Gwog traveled with Aelurus to the Moon, he learned the art of Time Travel, what is now called the Temporal Bypass System.

After establishing colonial outposts of Gondwana culture through the Solar System, from Pluto to the Moons of Neptune, he decided to venture forth to the future of the Earth. He traveled on a joint mission with Quantus Qwo, who established a colony of Loonese people among the the remote hill tribes of the Barbaru Coast, founding the City of the Moon.

Gwog, witnessing the fine example of Quantus Qwo's endeavors, thus founded Gwogtonia, his own nation state along the coast. These stamp covers are examples of mail from Gwogtonia. Some of these are important historical relics, as they demonstrate the communications between the Loonese, the folk of Montu Gargantui, and the Gondwana of Gwogtonia.

THE PRINCIPALITY OF KOORA IZLENDI

Koora Izlendi and the Isle of Ceero comprise the Principality of Izlendi, which was established 500 years ago off the coast of Cybrea. The explorer  Rexhell Dupp Rominotron discovered the islands in 1567. During the 19th century innovative Prunch Dormanodd Karbag Rominotron III became the ruler who established the first postal service of the islands. He also created a successful line of trinket shops which brought in much revenue to an otherwise impoverished realm. Princess Ennibool Katchitanodl was his bride. Her line of mermaid embroideries helped sustain the trinket shops of her husband.

In the early 20th  century Prunch Merkon de Koora brought modern industry to the land with the establishment of Merkon Ettodomion. At this time the newfound wealth of the islands attracted the greedy rulers of Cybrea who attempted a series of invasions. Merkon manufactured whale skin boots which were popular in  the markets of Eastern Amphora. 

After the conquest of Cybrea by the Digby Brothers, peace came to the islands, with the halting of the ancient war with the people of the mainland.

A SHORT ACCOUNT OF THE ISLE OF WORRO WORRO

In 1817 a derelict pirate ship pulled into Dooblong Bay on the isle of Worro Worro. Billy and Shark, two young shipmates, were sent ashore to find water. They were met by an emissary of King Kookilannu Ennu who gave them coconut milk.

Shortly the indigenous inhabitants of Worro Worro, seeing the chance to sail the seas, joined the pirate crew of Captain N. Dooblong.

After a time a joint rulership emerged on Worro Worro, wherein Kookilannu and Captain Dooblong ruled together. Barbarosa, a native of Worro Worro became the lieutenant Governor.

The Kingdom of Undinia, who claim overseership of Worro Worro, regard the island as part of their Commonwealth.
