North America was initially colonized and inhabited by an indigenous population that migrated hundreds of thousands of years ago across a land bridge connecting North America to Asia. When the land bridge was broken, the Americas remained separate from the rest of the known world for millennia, developing its own civilizations, culture, and language.
During the Age of Sail, America was discovered by European powers and colonized, resulting in the displacement or outright destruction of several Native American populations, and the subsequent establishment of Euro-centric states in the region, which would eventually become Canada, the United States of America, and Mexico. Subsequent world conflicts and the rising strategic value of Red Matter, which was abundant in the continent's northern regions, would see North America become a major seat of power on Earth in the 20th and 21st century.
As of 2029, North America has a population of 629 million humanoids.
