Asia (also known as Eastland, Sunriseland, and Morrowland) is one of the seven mainlands of Earth, and one of three in the Old World. It is the greatest mainland by ground, and has the greatest deal of folk living there. Westward lies Europe, and Southwestward is Africa. The English name Asia comes from Old Greek, and is first known from the writings of Heredotus, where it is given as the name of what we would today call Anatolia.
