Request: Faramount

Recommended Posts

Posting here per Orioni's recommendation. I'd spent a couple hours chatting with people on discord last night about where/what I might play. I'm pretty open -- I just don't want to be European, don't want to be developed, and don't want to be neighborless.

  • Nation in Europa: Faramount (though in-game name may be Faramont, if I go with Fleur as my colonizer)
  • Flag: Three stripes -- orange, green, and light blue. Very simple.
  • Capital name: TBD (based on who colonized the country)
  • Capital location: TBD (will need to decide this once I start figuring out the history more)
  • Factbook link: None of yet
  • Newsroom link: None of yet
  • Culture: Probably a mix of several African cultures with some kind of European overlay from period of colonization (currently thinking French, as Fleur de Lys has offered to be a colonial power that ruled me, but nothing is finalized).
  • Climate: Something on the warmer end (tropical? hot desert?).
  • Location: We had talked about my being placed here last night, but I recognize that "I want that land" is not how this works. I'm open for anything.
  • History: Nation would have been drawn into existence by European colonizers in the last couple centuries, hence it being relatively sizable (though I imagine a low population density due to underdevelopment). There'd be several different ethnic groups, and a number of different tribal groups, all lumped together unhappily. This would underpin the ultimate instability that I plan to be a central plot point of my RP. Nation would start game ruled by a dictator, who seized power in a bloodless coup not long after the colonial power withdrew (maybe 50-60 years ago).

I'd be nice with another nation in Alharu, just a thought here... Perhaps having a coastline would be smart, considering you used to be a colony, and Marudiviah wasn't a colony of Fleur de Lys?

You make a very good point about a coastline likely being a good idea. I'll get to work on a factbook, and then we can proceed.

Here is my request, remade after further worldbuilding.

  • Nation in Europa: Democratic Republic of Faramount (République Démocratique de Faramont)
  • Flag: Three stripes -- orange, green, and light blue. Very simple.
  • Capital name: Port Jacqueline
  • Capital location: Coastline of nation, ideally at mouth of a river.
  • Factbook link: Link
  • Newsroom link: 1, 2, 3
  • Culture: French, which was imposed upon an indigenous African. 
  • Climate: Something on the warmer end (tropical? hot desert?).
  • Location: I'd like to be a relatively sizable state with only a limited coastline.
  • History: Originally colonized by Limonaia, then by Fleur de Lys, before achieving independence in 1945. Military coup in 1963 established present government.

@Faramount I've come up with a few ideas. Being next to @Mauridiviah is a good idea, although I would suggest settling east of him. Alternatively, going even more east, you could claim the largest river delta in the world.

Furthermore, you could settle next to @Shffahkia as well, as it would fit colonial lore as well. However, those lands are either continental or mediterranean climate-wise.

That river delta one...

😍

I've had a chance to inspect the map quite closely over the last 2 days and I have to say that general area is quite nice. Faramount, I think you have a winner with that one.

I definitely took great interest in the delta, and I continue to agonize over which is the better place to go. Yet I think ultimately, I am averse to the delta because its so good. My nation is a former mining colony; it was indirectly ruled for all but 40 years. But such a prosperous river delta -- it would've drawn settlers, not imperialists. I'd surely have a transplant population -- and, given the natural basis for agriculture, gravel, and sand, probably an economically successful transplant population. My nation doesn't have that same level of economic prosperity.

But I'm certainly open to input here. What makes you guys prefer it?

I'd say an imperialist nation would seek such a prosperous river delta for exactly the reason you spelled out. They'd want that territory for its own economic interest. There is also an argument one could make that they claimed the land but never fully utilized the land to its full potential, giving you, a now-independent country, the opportunity to seize the moment and put both feet upon the land and turn the former colony into a very rich country in no time, assuming there are no volcanoes underneath or plague of locust that were waiting for the imperialist country to leave.

If there's resources to extract, we wouldn't have a problem going. Hehe

I suppose but even when colonization occurred, many colonial powers didn't have a full readout of the land's potential.

Now, if you didn't take that delta region, what would your recourse be? l have taken a look at the other options presented and if you didn't take the prosperous one, I'd recommend looking at the suggestions in Aurelia, but that would mean some climate changes and probably a change in population makeup diversity-wise. I really do think you have the best option on the table.

Y'all are very convincing. I'll need to give this more thought. I'm happy to take input from anyone that's willing to give it, if anybody else is following this.

Y'all have got me convinced -- I'll do the river delta. I'd like to ask for a bit of a chance, though -- I'd like to have up to the Northwards fork in the river, so I can have another city there. Red would be my capital; brown major cities. How does this seem to you guys? I estimate (from google Earth) that I'd have a total area of ~160,000 square kilometers, putting me around the same size as Tunisia or the US State of Georgia.

I think that's a wonderful idea and I am glad to see that you went ahead with the river delta options.

Goodnight @Faramount.

  • Factbook on IIWiki looks fine. http://iiwiki.com/wiki/Faramount
  • Newsroom. I see you created two agencies. That's alright.
  • Location. Now that's I've read up on all the above, including the location switches ;) , I agree with the last screenshot you posted in southeastern Alharu. That request would match up with your description.

Good to hear! 

I'd like one small change -- for now, no other cities besides the capital. And I'd like the capital to encompass both the red dot and the little brown dot next to it. I think, in terms of map size, that'll work out better, anyway. If possible, have the center be like right on the coast between the two rivers that end right next to each other.

Edited by Faramount
Change of request.

Okay. So now that things are ironed out in terms of name of direction, I've a new map, which has labels for cities. If you would be so kind when making the next map update, I'd really appreciate it if in addition to adding in my nation, you'd add in these cities.

7zXwJaH.png

A. Port Jacqueline. This is the capital (red dot, if unclear).
B. Faraville. This is a port city. (Please do not place on map).
C. Orville. This is a normal city.
D. New Lyrie. This is a port city.
E. Zaleville. This is a normal city.

    • By Fleur de Lys
      Nation in NS Europa Region: Fleur de Lys
      Current Name: République de Fleur de Lys
      Future Name: République Lysienne
      Current Flag:

      Future Flag:

      Current Location:

      Future Location (expansion in this case):

      Current Capital Name: Lyrie
      Future Capital Name: Cœur
      Current and Future Capitals location are indicated on the map above.
       
      Factbook link: Current one. Under construction one, which shall succeed if the expansion is approved, and shall see the changes RPed except for the removal of Bellefaye, Neaumanin, Danebourg and Mauvin (which, just disappear?). 
      Newsroom link: Currently APL. This (the name, stance and status of the APL newspaper) is however open to change or some updates in function of the RP
       
      OOC Context: I have decided to kill in the egg the idea of an Union Pan-Républicaine (and de facto the nations added for such RP) for two main purposes: First one, being that I’ve never been good at RPing large nations or military (I mean nations of +25 millions in demographics), this isn’t something in my nature (had experimented couple times, but I do not feel comfortable), Second given the feeling of some people of “unfairness” even if the application have been approved, which I shall understand and prefer therefore to limit this.
      I, however, given my most active diplomatic network (at least before May) had a bad after-taste, given the lack of demographics to support such active military operations overseas (deployment in Afropa with Iverican means, Operations in Ahrana, supporting ISTC logistics where needed, helicopters active in Adaptus navy patrolling near Derthalen, 2 Fighter Squadrons along Patrol Planes being deployed in Sunset Sea Islands), as I find it weird for a minor nation (in both economic and demographics definitions) to handle that many things, I felt the need to “upgrade” (that’s from where the idea of the Union was born, add to this a launch for “fulfilling the map holes” of the continent of Europa, which seems to no longer be the rule). As you may have seen in my factbook, currently the Lysian population is of about 7 528 709 citizens for a total GDP of 565 338 287 519,00 USD. The expansion would consist of making it pass to 20 372 959 citizens (increasing 2,71 time the population) and a total GDP of 1 179 648 314 441,35 (increasing 2,09 time the GDP) making overall the GDP per capita go down (of 19 000 USD, or at 77,11% of the current one).
      Given this, if the expansion was to be approved, the République Sœurs would also have to be removed definitely from the map (Bellefaye, Neaumanin, Danebourg and Mauvin) as two of them (Danebourg and Mauvin) would be used to explain and RP the expansion of Fleur de Lys.
      But most importantly, this shall give me a fair amount of fresh air. Why? Simply as, in RP, one of Mécra’s motivation (and mine) also is to reform the Republic, which as you probably have read in the Crisis in the Assemblée Nationale thread, is pretty bureaucratic and long to RP, something I was enjoying before, but I feel I need more free move and politic action (rather then everything passing through the Assemblée Nationale at a moment or another, which is basically the case today in Fleur de Lys’ working, fun fact, I retook French 3rd Republic working principles, and this may explain why it ended up badly), and much less characters if possible.
      This shall naturally happen with @Cristina and @Magnaeus approval, as also (I suppose I need approval?) the removal of the 4 Republics.
       
      History: How shall it pass? First of all, if Seylos “A Great Europan Collapse” shall not be applied, the scenario shall remain as the following (more or less, details to be adapted after naturally or in function of demands/protests):
      Following the failed negotiations of the Union, the République of Mauvin, having took the leadership of the provisory Union (with Protectrice Maréchal) would be much displeased, and see the main reasons as this failure Mécra’s (which was the one at the origin of the idea an Union) opposition (which he got, given the fact he haven’t been elected Protecteur, unlike what most had predicted). Violents exchanges also had happened during the Congrès, making in the end, the 5 nations, more separated then before. The République of Mauvin, willing to exercise some pressure on Fleur de Lys, given also a strange aerospace violation by an unknown flying object, which was coming from Fleur de Lys, would impose a suspension of Mauvin uranium exports to Fleur de Lys. Fleur de Lys, having 3 months of reserve, have the time to see how it may go, however given Mécra’s revanchard after-taste, shall make everything to push for sizing the Mauvin uranium mines by the Lysian military, which is exactly what shall happen following a series of rising tensions and events. However, once occupied, the mines shall not only be managed by the Lysians, but to also ensure complete independence from foreign power, the territory they reside in, shall be annexed.
      Second, south of present-day Danebourg. Given great strikes, which have been introduced by Président du Conseil Crolly, socialism is on the rise, as Rostelsa, which is conservative, refuse to give up, leading to great manifestations against the current Government, and calling for general reelections, along reforms. To stabilise, the Danebourgeois Government, having similar stances then RL Germany when coming to military and little police force (as after all, if you remember correctly, it is also the only of the 5 Républiques to do a budget surplus) call its neighbours to send police officers to maintain order, something which obviously Neaumanin shall deny, while Fleur de Lys do send indeed troops. Following a series of rising tensions once more, leading to a total destabilisation of the Government, the Lysians, in order to secure more the territory the Danebourgeois had given them to secure because of the lack of means they have, shall send the military to enforce law in the region. Given the new situation, of a destabilised Government and Mécra with full powers as Dictateur in Fleur de Lys, shall de facto proclaim the République Lysienne and annex those territories, along reforming the entirety of the administration system.
      The RP, shall pursue itself mainly in the thread “Crisis in the Assemblée Nationale“ even if references of those changes shall probably be done in other threads (including, newspapers, diplomatic meetings etc.).

    • Samura Heavy Industries was the very first Keiretsu to come into existence, founded in 1872 by Masamune Samura. He had a very close relationship with the reigning Emperor who entrusted him in developing Kipan's industrial capacity by using the technological advancements in manufacturing and resource extraction that were flowing into the islands due to the Udo Transformation. In short order, Samura raised a vast industrial empire. The corporation has maintained its firm grip over a huge swath of the economy for generations and has no intention of letting up. Samura has an 'understanding' with the Hogosha ('protectors'), a quasi-legitimate organization who provide brute muscle and guard Samura's assets. Although it's at the top of the "Big Ten," they are very aware of the Sato Corporation's rapid growth. Over much of its history, Samura has been a predominant supplier to the military, alongside their closest business ally, Obata. The industries Samura focuses on include chemicals, mining & metallurgy, steel production, forestry, oil & petrochemicals, concrete, construction, shipbuilding, timber & paper products, power plants, arms manufacturing, aviation, machinery, glass, and aluminum.

    • The Sato Corporation is one of Kipan's large, vertical group of enterprises, or keiretsu, owned by the beautiful and intelligent Asami Sato. Amongst the various business empires, Sato is the youngest of the "Big Ten" keiretsus, and while it is not nearly as expansive as Samura Heavy Industries, Sato is rapidly growing both in market share and political power - a combination the other nine wish to impede at all costs. The company originally started as an automotive manufacturer, constructing cars that were practical and affordable for the common man. Millions of cars on Kipan's roads can be traced back to Sato's assembly lines. Though automobiles remains a core product of the Corporation, under Asami, the Sato Corporation has seen tremendous growth in the length and breadth of businesses it is involved in. This includes real estate, cosmetics & fragrances, department stores, hotels, textiles, advertising, cameras, optics & imaging, a range of day-to-day household and consumer products, supermarkets, telecommunications, and rubber products. And the list keeps growing. Sato has their own racing team with the car driven by the CEO no less.
