Nation in Europa: Fjallshima
Capital name: Yokoholm
Capital location: Next to the ocean, preferably in a bay. Thalassa, of course.
Factbook link: https://iiwiki.us/wiki/Fjallshima (WILL ADD TO IT.)
Newsroom link: http://www.europans.com/topic/5733-fsf-fjallshiman-broadcasting-corporation/
Culture: A mix of Japanese and Swedish culture with a strong emphasis on religion, respect, family, hard work, and empathy.
Climate: Due to its mountains and being surrounded by water, summer can range from being mild to being hot and humid. Winter is very cold and can involve heavy snowfall in more mountainous areas.
Location History: The native Kitakaidon people have been in Yamashima for thousands of years and after the rise of agriculture in 4,000 BC, people started to splinter off into clans who were under the control of numerous different warlords. Civil wars were waged between warlords over hundreds of years with some of the most famous clans being the Minawara, Fujibana, and Sugatomi clans. Andallan Catholic missionaries arrived in the mid 19th century and the Sugatomi clan utilized the missionaries clan to create a new language called Fjallshiman and Fjallshiman Catholicism that was a mix of the Andallan Catholic faith and the native Seinshin spirit-based faith. Fjallshima was united into an empire that was ruled by the Sugatomi Clan. The late 19th century and early 20 century was brutal with a genocide of the native Seinshin Kitakaidon people, an invasion of Fjallshima by the Sunset Sea Islands, and a treaty signed between the Kitakaidon Workers Party and the Fjallshiman government that reorganized the country into a republic with autonomy for the region of Kitakaido.
