Origin of fornicalia

  • Presumably a phonetic reversal of California, chosen to resemble fornication and to end with -alia (a common word ending found sometimes in geographical names, like Sedalia, perhaps also chosen because it ends genitalia and causes Fornicalia to match that word in meter and rhyme).
