Culture: The best comparison for the culture of the Uyghurs. In simpler terms, Near Eastern culture with East Asian influences (that's a lot of east).

Climate: Heiheren has an unusually hot, sunny and dry climate. Average high temperatures are high in the South but very to extremely high in the rest of the country during summer. The cooler Tiauhai winds consistently blow over the Southern sea coast, which helps to get more moderated temperatures, especially at the height of the summertime. The deserts to the North-West of bring dusts that blows in during the Spring or early Summer. The dust brings daytime temperatures over 38°C (100°F) and sometimes over 48°C (119°F) in the interior, while the relative humidity can drop to 5% or even less. The absolute highest temperatures in Heiheguo occur when the desert dust blows. The weather is always sunny and clear in Heiheguo. It is one of the least cloudy and least rainy regions on Eurth. (haha the climate guy has a huge description for the climate)

Location: I don't actually have access to my phone atm (reasons I don't want to get into), so I can't send over the mock-up borders I had made. However, @Orioni should have it in his Discord DMs, so I hope that's sufficient enough.

History: The first recorded instance of a civilization on the Heihe river was in 2500 BCE, believing to have come from the East across the Alharun Desert. Around 2000 BCE, the two Kingdoms of Lower and Higher Heiheguo were united under (placeholder name). Sometime in 1200 BCE, the Heihe Kingdom completely collapsed. The cause is currently unknown, but this collapse may have lead to the loss of the original Heiheren language.

In the early 2011, Heiheguo had an election for the President of Heiheguo. Chen Jiang won for a third term, being blessed by the Shengren Hei Jingyi in early 2012. In 2012, Heiheguo officially joined LAANN as a full member-state. In 2018, a census was held across the nation, leading to a more accurate understanding of the demographics of the country.

The history and culture are still a bit fuzzy, but they're getting closer and closer to becoming fully fleshed out. If there's any questions, feel free to ask!

Nation Name: Heiheguo
Population: MEDIUM
GDP per capita: LOW
Area: LOW

I don't have definite numbers for any of these yet (especially not area), but will be sure to figure them out ASAP.

Good afternoon @Heiheguo. Your earlier application as Creaturae was already approved.

I'm glad you settled on a location. Since you're already familiar with the lore and climate, the fit is good. I'll be tracing the outline you posted on Discord.
