EmeraldieEdit

The Emeraldian kingdom lays claim to the Ross ice shelf, as well as the Marie Byrd land (or there alt equivalent).

AndeaEdit

lays claim to the OTL Argentine and Chilean Claims. Nothing more. As one of the first nations to explore Antarctica, we hope this won't be a problem.

Australia Edit

We claim any land that's left.

DiscussionEdit

Reference map

Indian claim overlaps with Spanish claim. German and Emeraldie claims overlap with Borealian claim.

It should be noted that Kaiser Mary Land (the name given to the German claimed land) has held German outposts on its coast since 1898, from which Germany sent its expedition that reached the South Pole in 1912/13.

My bad. Emeraldie is actually claiming Marie Byrd Land (Borealia) and Ross Dependency (Germany).

It appears as though Spanish and Indian claims are overlapping one another, therefore the Empire of India is open to negotiations.             Roman Crown   The night is dark and full of terrors. 

Truth be had, it really doesn't make a difference if there are overlapping claims or unclaimed territory. Because A) that's exactly like OTL and B) Antarctica has very little net worth.

Just keep that in mindNathan1123 (talk) 20:25, July 5, 2015 (UTC)
