Paorr is derived from the name of the planet, Orr. The exact meaning of the word is "little disc".
Paorr is the smaller of the two continents on Orr, consisting of a mainland as well as a large island to the south and several smaller islands surrounding it. The Yeti who traveled over the ice bridge eventually evolved into Humans there. Though a relatively small continent, Paorr is made up of twelve independent nations.
Unlike the majority of Araz, Paorr is very lush and is well able to support a large population. It is thought that this is the reason for Humans being further advanced than the other races, despite being the youngest of the three species.
