Antarctica, also known as the south pole is a icy and snowy continent at the bottom of the Earth.
Antarctica has forever been the "End of the Earth" for many explorers throughout the ages. The Antarctica Treaty, signed by many nations in 1959, banned military activity, weapons testing, waste dumping, and resource exploitation on the continent, and a few research stations were set up by various nations seeking to learn more about the frozen continent.
This all changed in 2001, where the Savage Lands, a large land of pre-historic animals and plants, suddenly appeared within the Antarctica landmass, causing a massive sensation and the launching of a massive effort to close off the landmass from the rest of the world.
The Savage Lands is inhabited by Humans, most notably Tim.
