In the War in the West conflict thread by member @Wellsy, 12th post of the 3rd and final page, I set up a colonial holding upon the land of Zharr (NS Nation: Cabarria, he was playing his nation as two independent autonomous factions that were one nation overall) facing the Amnalos Sea (It looks like a little jutting boot at the northernmost edge of Cabarria's territory, with what looks like a small bay or some such to its left.
Leading into current role-play mentioning here, I'd like to re-acquire this territory for continued role-play purposes as well as trade etc.
Nation in Europa: Esonice
Capital name: Esonyaveli
Capital location: Close to the ocean, ideally in a bay and flat lands.
Factbook link: https://iiwiki.us/wiki/The_Serene_Kingdom_of_Esonice (Will be changed a lot)
Newsroom link: (will be canonised)
Culture: A mix of Polish and Japanese cultures including some French, Chinese, Greek among other minor mixed elements. Though Esonice leans quite a bit to Asiatic. Arikaism (native beliefs of Esonice) is a mixture of Shintoist and Slavic pagan concepts and beliefs.
Climate: Ideally a climate similar to Japan/Southern China with humid conditions. Also the ability to grow cocoa. But I don’t mind a more wouldn’t mind a more tropical climate as long as it's humid and fertile and not a complete rainforest. (potentially a big island?)
Location The big island next to Giokto I am quite interested in, but i don’t know its size or its climate (I do have 2-3 other locations in mind)
(Quick map showing how Esonice will be if I get the location)
History: (Just important parts, Esonice’s history will be divided into Japanesque periods in the future)
first Esonian cultures (Velisians, Emisians, Alodians) 3000 BC Rise of agriculture and sedentary lifestyles, early logographic alphabet 2900-2000 BC Rise of city states, clans and first warring states period 2000-1200 BC Rise of the Aranai dynasty (and dominance of Velisian culture) 1200-800 BC Sakiyomo Sakiyone plague and collapse of the Aranai 800-600BC Rise of new clans and second warring states period 600 BC-1 AD Unification of beliefs (Arikai) and idea of one nation by Liyana 1-100 AD Wars of beliefs - 100 - 400 AD Beginning of the 3 Hirugo Periods (Early Hirugo Period) 400-500 AD Third warring states period,Hirugo philosophy, beginnings of Modern Esonian language and culture (Early to high Hirugo Periods) 500-940 AD Wars of Esonian Unification (High Hirugo Period) 940-1010 AD Prosperous time focused on cultural development and trade, beginning of Esonian syllable alphabet (High to Late Hirugo Period) 1010-1150 AD Some clan revolts, throne squabbles, further cultural development (late Hirugo Period) 1150-1250 AD Decentralisation of power, weak monarchy because of powerful clan (1320), First isolationist period (Hirugo Period ends in 1300 AD) 1250-1500 AD Esonice falls into clan anarchy as monarchy weakens completely, fourth warring states period, Slavic cultural influence from trade(1500-1700 AD) Esonice reunifies under a new clan, foreign influence continues 1700-1800 AD Return to cultural development, Andallan missionaries, early modernisation, war on Christianity 1800-1910 AD Second isolationist period, Thalassan war and Sunset invasion of Esonice 1910-1950 Formation of democracy(1950), mass industrialisation, rise of financial sector, becoming a developed country (1980) 2000-2020?

Nation in Europa: Aanbreck Aurora
Capital Name: Auvergne
Capital Location: Island along a harbor (see map)
Factbook Link: https://iiwiki.us/wiki/Acadia
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)
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.
