Mainland Arlandica (Cebuano: Pangunang Yuta sa Arlandika) is an enclave and is considered the core territory of the Kingdom of Arlandica. It is one of the provinces of Arlandica, encompassing two territories: Santo Niño City, the country's capital city, and Melascoville City. The province is landlocked and holds the distinction of being the most populous province in the country.
Being the seat of monarchy, its political, economic, cultural, and strategic importance makes it essential to protect the province, especially Santo Niño City, to ensure the stability and security of Arlandica.
Mainland Arlandica is an enclave, a landlocked province that boasts a landscape characterized by densely forested, mountainous terrain. The areas of Melascoville and the western part of Santo Niño are deemed to be tablelands. The province enjoys a tropical climate, adding to the allure of its natural surroundings.
Mount Arland is the tallest mountain in the province and also in the country. Furthermore, Lake Arland is located here and is the largest tropical lake in the country. The Arland River is characterized as a landmark and an important place in Arlandican history. The province is home to a nature reserve named Arland Rainforest.
The province was originally a single city called Arland City (now called Santo Niño City), which served as the nation's capital until the establishment of the Kalinawan. This development paved the way for its transformation into a province.
On July 28, 2023, following a constitutional amendment, Kalinawan separated from the Mainland and came under the jurisdiction of the province of Nueva Bago. However, as a result, a new territory called Melascoville City was created.
The Mainland is governed by an appointed governor-representative.

The economy of Mainland Arlandica heavily relies on a retail sector, with diverse shops spread throughout Melascoville. These retail hubs play an important role in sustaining economic growth by offering a wide array of goods and services to locals and visitors. The province depends on imports, primarily sourced from its neighboring country, the Philippines, to supplement domestic production and ensure a steady supply of essential resources and products.
Mainland Arlandica preserves pockets of agricultural activity in specific areas.
