  1. I could send someone too, as a way to kickstart my RP for this region after my inactivity.
  2. Sorry, I meant to have my population at 1, not 2, I was just looking at my wiki page.
  3. So, here are my stats for the balance sheet: Nation Name: Acadia Population: 32.7 million (1) GDP per capita: 15,000 USD (1) Area: 300,000 km^2 (2) To get the area down to be able to achieve the other stats, I will have to cut off my island (Ile d'Alquiere) and the other piece of land across the bay/strait (New Normandy). This brings me to the mainland, which is 316,000 km^2. Still too big. I decided to get rid of the Northeast corner of my claim, and I don't really care what the border changes to look like, just as long as that corner gets cut off in a 16k km^2 fashion. I would like this area to be labeled the "Diné Republic" if possible. Thank you in advance!
  4. You assumed correctly, I've spoken with them before about combining our histories so that they can fit as pieces in Eurth's history puzzle. If it isn't possible, I would rather have B, as it is much closer to me and was one of the original three colonies (New Normandy).
  5. Nation in Europa: Aanbreck Aurora Flag: Capital Name: Auvergne Capital Location: Island along a harbor (see map) Factbook Link: https://iiwiki.us/wiki/Acadia Newsroom Link: Culture: The culture of Acadia is mostly derived from French (Lysian) culture, however is unique in that it has some elements incorporated from the Navajo/Pueblo (Diné). This is similar to South or Central America, where the indigenous culture is still prevalent in the modern culture. IRL Mexico is like this in that, though it is very much a full-blown Latin American, Spanish nation, it still incorporates the culture and even names from Mesoamerican cultures like the Aztecs and Mayans. Climate: The climate is more or less similar to the dry deserts in the IRL Southwest (US), though on île d'Alquière and Nouvelle Normandie climates are more similar to grasslands or plains. If possible, the coastal portions of Acadia could be slightly less desert and more mountainous than the rest of the nation (similar to what happens in IRL California compared to the Sonora and Mojave Deserts just nearby). Perhaps something like this could be explained through the rain shadow effect, though I'm not quite sure the location will help hold up that explanation. Location: The Western coast of central Aurelia: (Excuse me for the crude quality of the map) History: 700 CE - First Human Settlement by the Diné people. 800 CE - Tribes united into Diné Confederation, lasting all but 50 years until its collapse. 800-1300 CE - "Dinese Isolation" period of development in tribes and relative peace. 1332 CE - Union of tribes and city-states into the Dinénahasdzáán Empire. 1638 CE - Founding of L'Aracdie and colonization of modern-day Arcadia/Arcadie. 1640-1680 CE - Conquête Intérieure (Interior Conquest) of Diné lands leading to the collapse of the Dinénahasdzáán Empire. This paves the way for the establishment of the Acadie (Acadia), Nouvelle Normandie (New Normandy), and Nouvelle Lys (New Lys) colonies, all eventually becoming part of the Acadia colony. 1759 CE - Revolution against Lysian rule, ending in an Acadian victory. 1803 CE - Incorporation into Shffahkian Empire. 1834 CE - Acadia declares independence from Shffahkia and declares the United States of Acadia, contributing to the collapse of the Shffahkian Empire. 1849 CE - Acadia is annexed into Shffahkia once again. 1895-1899 CE - Tensions between Acadians and Shffahkians reach new heights, leading to the conflict known as the Shffahko-Acadian Civil War. This conflict contributed, once again, to the collapse of the Shffahkians, this time to the First Shffahko Republic, and also contributed to the rise of the Collectivists in the state.
  6. Welcome to Eurth, I hope you enjoy what the region has to offer!
  7. https://iiwiki.us/wiki/Acadia A WIP, partially done, thought it would be nice if I posted my progress thus far
  8. Jacques rushes over to the President's office, folder in hand and plan in mind. He slides through the entrance to Emmanuel Séverin's personal work space. When he walks in, the President looks up at the little man. "Jacques, what have you that is so important that you have to bother me this day.", complains Séverin. "We're having issues with the Diné Republic again, they're demanding the borderlands, and if we don't comply, they're pressuring all the wurld to make us do so.", explains Jacques. "So, what can we do about it.", inquires Séverin. "I was talking with Defense Minister Desroches..." Suddenly, Jacques was interrupted by an outburst about how someone had the ability to nuke any fast food location if they wanted to. He continues, "Like I was saying, Desroches suggested that we fund revolutionary organizations in our neighboring nation, then invade once they are weakened." "Okay, which organizations would we fund then?" "I would suggest the one with the largest foundation, the Worker's Front Movement. We have investigated into worker's conditions in the Diné Republic, and found that they have one of the worst conditions in all of Eurth. Further investigation signals that many members of the WFM work in Arms Factories in the Diné nation." "How do we keep it a secret that we are funding them? How do we supply them?" "I got someone to flow the cash from the government to these organizations, and he's agreed to fly the weapons in disguised as arms part shipments." "Fine, I guess we could give it a shot. Any instability for those nagging hooligans sounds like a deal to me.", Séverin finally agrees.He sighs and looks out the window, but then comes back down to Eurth and looks at Jacques as he hands the President some papers. "These are some documents for the contracting with the guy I mentioned earlier, along with some documents concerning of the aid of the revolutionaries.", says Jacques, and he hands President Séverin a bundle of papers and a pen. The President takes the pen and signs in the necessary areas, then takes a stamp from his desk and stamps his approval onto some others. He hands the papers back over to Jacques. "Thank you, Mr. President." Jacques walks back out the door. The President proceeds to sit at his desk and ponder if he truly made the right the decision.
  9. [RAA] Home | Acadia | Wurld | Politics | Business | Tech | Sports A New Era: AASA's Mun Mission Takes Flight January 5, 2020 by Léana Bonnet EVERYONE'S BEEN WAITING for this moment, that magical day we've all been waiting for, the day the rocket is sitting there on the launch pad and the launch timer hits zero, and the narrating voice says, "we have lift off." The day finally came, and it was practically a holiday, everyone has Sunday off, and almost everybody was sitting in front of their television sets watching to see with their very own eyes history be made. Many made the pilgrimage to Cape Georges and the town of Havre Beach, overwhelmed by the massive tourist influx, to experience the launch themselves. In the seconds before the rocket flew up into the sky, the crowds gathered at Cape Georges began waving towards the rocket, a gesture apparently started by a small child in the large audience of the launch. Whether this is true or not, it is amazing that in this day and age that people can come together like that. It truly shows that Acadia is going into a new era of prosperity, as stated in the President's speech later this afternoon. "This day is one of the greatest days in the history of Acadian flight.", President Emmanuel Séverin had begun, "It goes down in importance next to the first arrival of planes in Acadia, the creation of the Air Force, or even the conception of the very organization who started this, the Administration de Aérienne et Spatiale d'Acadia. But this is not just a day celebrating flight. This day marks a momentous occasion in the history of Acadia, because it shows that when we work together and put our minds collectively to something, we can accomplish big things. It shows that, when we say we will do this, we will do it, because we are a strong people. It stands as an example of what we are capable of. And so, that is why, Acadia is on the path to a new era of prosperity." The best part is, all research will not be lost when the pieces of the rocket come back down to Eurth. The technology used in the rocket is currently being shared with Acadian vehicle manufacturers, allowing citizens access to the kind of stuff before experienced only by astronauts. The research conducted on the rocket will also allow the AASA to eventually develop new, better, recyclable rockets that will be able to take several astronauts up into space. So why don't you go out there and celebrate this wonderful moment in Acadian history! After all, rooting for your country's space program isn't rocket science. This is Léana Bonnet, writing for RAA.

  10. [Pretend that this is a day later, not a month later.] Crowds gather in Cape Georges to watch history flash before them. The town of Havre Beach, housing little over 50,000 citizens, is packed with tourists from around Acadia and even outside of the nation, thousands gathering to see what has been in the making for decades. They walk across the platform to their new accommodations for the coming week. They walk, no, it's more of a waddle, awkwardly in their bulky white suits, in their giant helmets and large boots. But they were nothing to laugh at. They were the four astronauts making history today. These four would do something never before done in Acadia. They would go on a mission to orbit the moon and back. This was the beginning of a new era. Those who were lucky enough to get quite close as to be able to better make out these figures walking across the platform cheered them on as if they were their favorite players on the television in a soccer match. A child steps forward from this crowd. He should be barely noticeable, but the little, possibly four year old steps forward as to be seen by those celebrities walking across the platform. He waved, a simple gesture, but such a sentimental one for the astronauts. It symbolized the newest generation saluting them, and their final goodbye with Eurth until they return. Maybe, one day, that kid, that little kid, will become an astronaut just like them. The four now famous figures of Acadian culture enter the rocket, as Mission Control scrambles to review all systems to see if this baby's ready to take off. "Everything's lookin' good.", says a man looking into a screen displaying some graphs back in Saint-Louis, location of Mission Control. "All good here.", says someone else. Everyone else nods reassuringly or gives some kind of sign of approval, and so it would seem, everything was on track to create a perfect launch. "Well, let's get her into the sky then!" Back in Cape Georges, the rocket, with its systems all set for launch, has gotten down to ten seconds. "T-Minus ten." says the automated voice coming from the speakers surrounding a huge clock just outside the launch pad. Excited whispers sweep across the crowds as the bottom of the rocket begins to light up. "Nine." Guillaume waves out the window to the crowds below, and then says childishly, "This is gonna be fun..." "Eight." "You bet.", says a just as childlike Samuel. "Seven." The child continues to wave back at the rocket crew, smilingly, then turning to his parents so they join him in this final wave before the rocket leaves the Eurth's atmosphere. Clouds of white steam begin to envelop the bottom half of the rocket, with the bottom of the cloud a glowing orange color. "Six." Groups around the happy waving family begin waving as well, as the rocket's engines begin to sound across the cape. "Five." The glowing brightens clearly. "Look at all those people waving us goodbye", says Emy looking down on the crowds. All the astronauts begin to wave. "Four." The whole crowd begins to wave and cheer at the rocket, though the sound is quickly being dwarfed by the engines' roar. "Three." The steam begins to billow the around a hundred yards around the rocket, and the flames of the rocket glow bright. "Two." The sound of the rockets deafen anything within one mile's radius of the launch pad. "One." The rocket propels itself into the air, leaving a trail of smoke behind it as it ascends into the atmosphere. The crowd's cheering overrides the departing engines of the rocket to become the new dominant sound of Cape Georges. Those in bars across the nation, who had turned the television set to the launch instead of local sports events, clink their beers, cheer rowdily, and yell, some singing the national anthem of Acadia in national pride. Welcome to the newest era of Acadian greatness, the newest era of space dominance, the newest era of the Federal Republic of Acadia.
  11. Hope everything goes well and that you'll be doing better soon!
  12. [RAA] Home | Acadia | Wurld | Poilitics | Business | Tech | Sports Acadian Rocket Launch, Is the Space Program Taking Off? January 4, 2020 by Léana Bonnet AFTER OVER SIXTY YEARS of no real space activity from the Administration de Aérienne et Spatiale d'Acadia, things down at Cape Georges are heating up. The launch pads down there are being used! That's right, you heard me! Tonight, if all goes well, the Vulcan III Rocket will by flying high above Eurth. But first, here's some context. The mission, called simply "The Mun Mission", has an important goal. The four astronauts that have been assigned to man this mission will conduct a study from above the Eurth's lone satellite to gather and document information on both sides of the Mun, both what can be seen from the surface and on the "Dark Side of the Mun." It is rumored that this launch and mission has a second motive: of course to cement Acadia as a possible player in space and a power on Eurth. The first funding for the mission began three years ago as a plan for the revitalization of Acadia's long lost projects. Over the past three years the team at the helm, the mission planners, put together a modern, up-to-date rocket, a group of ripe astronauts-in-training, a team of scientists and experts to work behind the scenes, and most importantly, a mission. The four astronauts manning this mission will be Guillaume Tremble, Samuel Cosineau, Emy Oliver, and Barbara Leclair. The scheduled launch time is around sunset, so make sure to take photos! Over the past week, the AASA has been running tests for the rocket, and so far they have proven successful, with the most successful recordings being yesterday, which of course, gives quite a bit of optimism for the team at the mission. We talked with Samuel Consineau this afternoon. "This is a really exciting moment in my life and the lives of my countless teammates, mission directors, my friends at AASA, and all Acadians.", Cosineau told us earlier today. "Today's the day that we make history in Acadia, in all of Eurth. Me and my peers were talking about this and joking about it yesterday, but this is a really big moment, a really exciting moment." An exciting moment indeed. This is Léana Bonnet writing this evening for RAA. Courtesy of Le Réseau d'Actualités Acadiennes, and its associates. All rights reserved.
  13. Le Réseau d'Actualités Acadiennes RAA Home | Acadia | Wurld | Politics | Business | Tech | Sports The Acadian News Network, or Réseau d'Actualités Acadiennes, more commonly referred to as simply the RAA, is one of the main news providers in Acadia, and is popular among both television and online viewers. The news organization also publishes a newspaper, simply called Les Actualités, meaning "The News." The company was founded in 1956 as the Huere Nationale (National Times), which mainly reported over radio waves. In 1960 the company was relabeled to its current name as the nation transitioned to watching at their screens. The network provides relatively unbiased and direct news coverage of not only events within Acadia but all the wurld.
