Pelaut Archipelago is an area in Just Cause 2.
"Pelaut" is Malay and Indonesian for "seaman" or "sailor".
It's one of the nine districts in Panau. It forms a large cluster of Islands in the very Northeast of the island of Tanah Raya. The district contains two Military Airports and Bases, many settlements, large and small, and countless small islands, many of which can be reached by either road or boat. The Panau Motorway/Highway System passes through to the south of the district. The Mile High Club is also above Pelaut Archipelago.
GeographyEditThe district contains many untouched islands split up by canals, making for a very beautiful environment and ecosystem. The Berawan Besar Mountains lie to the West and Southwest, while the south is bordered by East Tanah Raya. The North and East coast is covered by small islands forming an Archipelago, hence the name.
There is a large industrial sector in the area, especially in the east islands of the area. The heart of the Panauan Oil and Gas industry is located there. The district produces also almost the half of the electricity in Panau, with two marked power stations and 18 Wind Turbines.

There's three cities in the west part of the district. They have most likely plopped up when the PBC Tower was built.
Most of the Archipelago's many islands are connected by road and boat. There are two Military airports in the district, both with two runways each. There are also a number of ports and Military Bases, all connected by either road or the PMS (Panau Motorway/Highway System). Due to the proximity of the Berawan Besar Mountains connections to other districts, especially the Ramai Rakyat Islands (where Panau City is located), are forced to go around the huge Mountain Range, making for longer journey times.
Note: Much of the content below is pure speculations, but these speculations have much been based on in-game evidence.
The district was most likely under the early 20th century like most other districts in Panau. But when the oil request in the country was rising, a new refinery, Emas Hitam Oil Refinery, and two new ports were built for importing and refinering oil. The placing of the new refinery was very good for the district, as new industries started to pop up all around the refinery.
During the time of Papa Panay, the infrastructure was probably upgraded. The refinery was increased and a wind power station was built.
When Pandak "Baby" Panay took the power he erected the PBC Tower in the western part of the district, which made the three cities to grow up there. He built 4 Offshore Rigs on the gas fields in the area, and also a Fossil Fuel Power Plant named Loji Bahan Bakar Fossil.
The district is now as stated in one of the upper sections one of the most expansive in Panau, and the construction sites in the area can be used as a symbol for the expansion.
With all the industries, the environmental effects on the archipelago could not be so good. The process of burning oil at power stations and refining of oil releases a lot of air pollutions, both including sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide and particles. That usually causes acid rains in areas.
