Sarutabaruta (サルタバルタ地方 [sarutabaruta-chihou] or 'Sarutabaruta region' in Japanese) is situated on the southern tip of the Mindartia continent, connected to Kolshushu in the north and lined by the Bastore Sea everywhere else. It was the area first settled permanently by the Tarutaru when they arrived on Mindartia, and has been the heartland of Tarutaru rule ever since. The area includes the plains of Sarutabaruta, the city of Windurst, the various connected Horutoto Ruins, Giddeus, Toraimarai Canal and Fort Karugo-Narugo. The rivers of Zanbibi and Nonpipi run through East Sarutabaruta, with Lake Tepokalipuka situated right north of the city of Windurst.
Before, this area was more verdant than it is in the present, but the disappearance of magic in the area has dried up most of it.

Sarutabaruta is most famous for its various plant produce, including tea leaves, oranges, rarab tails and popotoes, as well as others such as wood. The regional vendors for the region are Baehu-Faehu in north Windurst Waters G-5, Somn-Paemn in Bastok Markets H-9 and Milva in Port San d'Oria H-7.



The capital of the Federation of Windurst is situated within this vast steppe region. Windurst City boasts the lushest vegetation in Sarutabaruta thanks to a vast subterranean water supply, and wildlife thrives in most grassland areas. In the ancient Tarutaru language, "Sarutabaruta" means "the land of prophecy."1



The city of Windurst is built on the very southern tip of the continent, directly north of Pamtam Straits, and is surrounded by the savannas of Sarutabaruta. The area is cut off from the rest of the continent by the mountains in Kolshushu, and is one of the more hospitable areas of the continent. Beneath the city lies the Toraimarai Canal, which in turn is connected to the Full Moon Fountain.

Savannas of Sarutabaruta

The two sides of the savannas of Sarutabaruta have similar features, with the west side being drier and lacking major bodies of water. In the east, the rivers of Zanbibi and Nompipi run through most of the area, with the small Lake Tepokalipuka situated in south-west bringing additional moisture to the area. The eastern portions of Sarutabaruta are traditional hunting grounds.
To the north lies the mountainy area of Tahrongi Canyon and Fort Karugo-Narugo, and to the west the yagudo mountain-city of Giddeus. Scattered all throughout the areas are the towers of Horutoto.

Horutoto Ruins

Horutoto Ruins is a series of towers and the maze complex below them. They are connected to the Toraimarai Canal, as well as the areas of Sarutabaruta.
The ruins are traditionally divided into the inner ruins of Lily Tower, Rose Tower and Beetle's Burrow, as well as the outer ruins of Amaryllis Tower, Dahlia Tower, Lilac Tower and Marguerite Tower.

Fort Karugo-Narugo

Fort Karugo-Narugo was constructed for the military defense of Windurst, and served as the biggest defense point of the federation in the Crystal War. It's connected to West Sarutabaruta in the south, and Meriphataud Mountains in the east. In the present day, the way to Karugo-Narugo is largely blocked.
