As some of you might know, I have decided to start a clean slate because I find that the previous idea of Selayar is unworkable on my end. So i'm moving map spot to better fit my new idea for this country, and here's my new form:
Nation in Europa: Selayar
Capital name: Wanaperaʻa
Capital location: In the gulf area (see the map of claim)
Factbook link: https://iiwiki.us/wiki/Selayar
Culture: Insular Southeast Asia (Austronesia) without Indian influence along with pseudo-Polynesia linguistic influence and a mix of other Asian cultures. It will be a matrilineal rice-growing riverine culture in the lowland. It will also be multiethnics so there will be some variations present. I'm also planning to construct an entire language family that might be indigenous to the area around Manamana Bay.
Climate: Tropical rainforest (Af) with pockets of tropical monsoon (Am)
Location: Northeast Aurelia, near the Manamana Canal on the southern coast of Manamana Bay
History: The Manamanan culture arose around the 3rd century BC, with the domestication of animals and cereals, most importantly rice (or a local variety thereof) around present-day Mananaman canal (parallel to Neolithic China). This later followed by other cultures that led to the creation of kingdoms (and most of the time queendoms due to the matrilineal culture) by 1st century BCE. The following period, around 6th century CE saw the breakup of the centralised state as it splintered into small queendoms or chiefdoms, and regression of culture and technology. Only in the 14th century CE did the First Reyan Empire united what is now the territory of modern Selayar. The Second Empire follows as it reached its territorial height in 17th or 18th century, shortly before meeting with the 'foreign' colonies in Shffahkia (?), and starts the 'Contact Period'. A now-famous explorer reached the depth of the Empire's territory and recorded stories that now is well-known (?). A vassal kingdom in the heartland of the Empire rebelled and won control of Selayar, and paved the way for the modern state of Selayar as it absorbs more and more foreign influences. A revolution at the end of 19th century saw the establishment of constitutional monarchy that lasted till this very day.
With this request, i will also request the removal of my old spot in the islands east of Giokto. There might be a possibility of holding Taiwan-Chinese like RP there, but in the meantime, it'll be better for it to be removed before i can run such a roleplay. And thanks before! If i missed anything, please tell me and i will fix it as soon as possible.
Over the past weeks and upcoming weeks me and @Alenveil have/will be RPing often to help justify the war in the Auraid Bay. The Actual RP will begin on April 24th, and will go on for the following two to four weeks. We have acknowledged that we As relatively new Nations must earn the expansion, so we will be doing as much as possible before April 24th.
The post conflict borders will look much like this
The red border represents my claim, and the blue Alenveil’s. The Yellow spot is the city of Pyemacus, and the Anchor PNB Hamptus, you could leave the PyeMcGowian Border there and just do PNB Hamptus (PMG). I am unaware of any of Alenveil’s Cities, so I suggest that he post something below. I am also unaware what will happen to the remaining land of Theodoria as they are inactive
As my dear neighbor @Prymont had stated I have a few expansion areas Im looking at for the future of Ahrana and the last of all expansions of Ahrana for the foreseeable future and such. The expansion will come in three phases with te first phase starting next year and the other two phases being six months between the first one. They all are going to be Role-played out and will have many justifications and reasonings.
(please do ignore the sub-territorial lines inside the federation that's for something else)
Anyways the first Phase is to the West of the Federations Borders, the Role-play that will go with this is the territorial claims by the Federal Republic of Xara as Ahrana only annexed one segment of the entire old Country. The other Capitals of the Old Country, Remus and Romulus make Xara whole having three Capitals in all. How it will start is that the Government of Vulgus Supra receives Signals from Remus and Romulus as coming under attack by the Religious Fundamentalist that plagued Xara till the Armed Forces of Ahrana stepped in. So after the defeat they fled to what the Ahranaian Government to be no mans land but instead was Greater Xara and the Old Country of Ahrana. Within this Phase the Religious Radicals will finally be named and we will see exactly what they are capable of doing.
Phase 2 will be started and pursued to create a land border between the Federation and the United States in hopes of further advancing relations and lower Travel Restrictions and so forth. With this instalment Ahrana will begin to ally itself closer with the United States helping usher in Peace in Argis and the northern part of the World. It is with this that I hope that @Prymont grow closer together in some form of another yet to be discussed. The RP for this phase is to give the Federation some more farm land (yes I know it stays cold most of the year here but what we can grow will help!!!!) and more land for factories and so much more. This Phase will start Six months after Phase 1.
Phase 3 will be started Six months or more depending on my life status (haha) after Phase 2. This phase will mainly be a way for Ahrana to be part of Central Argis and to be able help stabilize the area that is in a consistent state of war in my words. OOCly this will also give the United States a corridor into the Central of Argis to help with the stability and so forth. I know Pryguy might have more to say OOCly but we haven't got there yet. This RP will consist of having access to the south and to bring easier trade to the region and giving the Federation more warmer lands for a longer Farming season and another water access area. This Phase has no time table yet, and I have yet to know what others will think in the area but hopefully none to bad (haha).
So there you guys have it the total expansion of Ahrana for the near future and probably the last one for Ahrana at that, I do not see the Federation growing bigger after this unless invasions happen and so forth. So do feel free to leave your thoughts behind!
