The exact date that the island was formed is up for debate, but most geologists agree that the island was formed over 200 million years ago, when massive volcanic activity split Pangaea apart. Specifically, it was part of the remains of Africa and South America splitting apart.
The island was first discovered by Captain Miguel in 1506 during the voyage that eventually led to the discovery of Mauritius Island. While his ship, the S.S. Comis, continued on around the Cape of Good Hope, another ship, the S.S. Boa Vontade, laid anchor and claimed the island, christening it as "Ilha Central," as the ship's crew saw the economic benefit of the island.
While it stayed in Portuguese hands for centuries, the island eventually won its independence in 1986, when it then became a democratic nation run on tourism. Central Island stayed out of foreign affairs, which attracted Cal Pada to establish its new headquarters there, as no one payed attention to the island nation.
After the Central Island Incident, as the events of Com 50-3: Raid on Central Island were later called, concluded in 2007, the Cal Pada headquarters was left to rot on Pinnacle Mountain, forgotten by all who live there.

The following locations are part of Central Island.
The capital of Central Island is home to surfing, beach-going, nightlife, and other high-octane activities. For quieter people, the town offers an extensive library, casual cafes, and the Central Island Museum of Culture and History. Several hotels line the coast, three of which were condemned, then demolished, after Cal Pada's nuclear testing critically damaged them with a tidal wave.
The highest point on the island is home to Cal Pada's now-abandoned base. Motor sports have taken over portions of the mountain's base, but most of it retains its natural quality. Most of the island's fauna call the mountain home.
West Town is Central Island's main port. It has never been represented visually and is only featured on the official map of the island.
