Expansion: Seylos

Recommended Posts

Well it's time for the big expansion into Ceris. After the past year of war on the unfortunate island, things are finally coming to a head and there is a glimmer of hope for a Sentist defeat. In the coming posts I will explore beyond just the military military posts and begin the diplomatic process of the formation of a new supranational state that will encompass Seylos and eastern Ceris.



Name: North Adlantic Union

Government: Centralized Confederation (Supranational Union)

Head of Government: President of the North Adlantic Council (Elected amongst constituent nations)

Legislative Body: North Adlantic Council

Constituent Nations: Seylos, Cenia, Seskoaburg, Ashington, Astaria, Egris, Esnos, Atrya, Ostros

Total Constituent Population: 59,240,000 (Seylos is 34,000,000 making up 57% of the population)

Average GDP of Nations (Seylos excluded): 29.125 billion

Average GDP per Capita (Seylos excluded): 1,153 per capita

Average GDP with Seylos: 153 billion

Average GDP per Capita with Seylos: 2582 per capita

Predominant Cultures: Anglian, Alban, Cymrian, Eirieann, Ceriser, Germanic (still working on a good name for that)


It goes without saying in this expansion that the Kingdom of Seylos will not be directly annexed or integrating any of its neighbors. Each of these nations will exist as sovereign states (in NPC form) under the umbrella of the North Adlantic Union. As such, I will continue having Seylos as the nation that I will be playing as and will not be changing the country's name or any such thing. Of course however the North Adlantic Union will still be seen as an extension of myself while RPing just like any other expansion.

Reasons for Expansion:

Due to the events of Doom of Ceris, the nations that will make up the Union have been fighting side by side with each other against the Sentist onslaught, and have come to the conclusion that they have no choice but to work together in order to survive the crisis. On top of this, ICEB influence in the west, Tagmatine influence in the north, and the possibility of a surviving Sentist state none of the eastern Ceris nations see a possible situation where they can make their stand alone. Ostris and Egris have also bore the brunt of the Sentist assault, and look to Seylos and the wealthier coastal states as a means of recovery and economic development. All the states under the Union will have had common cultural backgrounds, and have had relatively peaceful contact with each other over the year, with minor exceptions. Seylos, for its part, sees this as a way to secure the territory close to it from further international encroachment, and as a massive economic opportunity for the future.


Moving Forward:

As the Doom of Ceris RP begins to wind down, posts will be made in detail about the negotiations between the future Union members in order to solidify the RP for a treaty binding them together. Though it has been presumed over the course of the RP that these nations are obviously coordinating together, I do not want any questions up in the air as to how it all occurred.

Seems like a good plan.

I'm surprised that you're not making it a union with Seylos as the leading partner, if not the actual leader. I doubt many Eurth nations, especially not the bigger ones, would bat an eyelid at Seylos taking them over and installing Aidan as their hegemon. That'll probably leave the Arhomaioi scratching their heads a bit, as they're much more used to an aggressive and dominating leadership style, both from their leaders and their nation.

But, ultimately, yours is the more tactful way of doing it and I imagine that Seylos will be the driving force, both in its founding and as things move into the future.

Obviously, the Agios Basilikon Kounsistorion would welcome a stronger partner in the north Adlantic, and one that brings a stabilising influence in the far east of Ceris. And a counterbalance to the rising Communist meddling in the west of the island.

It will also likely be used as a way to strengthen ties with Secryae, as the Noble Republic worries about being subsumed by the North Adlantic Union.

@Seylos — Do you already want to show this expansion on the map? Or not yet, and keep the label with "RP ongoing"?

Go ahead and show it. It'll just be easier that way

      Keep in mind that I’m flexible with like all of this so if some things aren’t available or aren’t exactly as specified in the application I’m glad to accommodate

      Nation in Eurth: Utogo
      Capital name: Buokagio
      Capital location: On the northern coast; Wodaa is also coastal and Bogimé is on a river in the north. Another fairly large city exists in central Utogo, Wawisoimpi, which would preferably be on a river in that area, but again I am happy to accommodate
      Stats Chosen: Pop 2 - GDP/C 0 - Area 2
      Factbook/iiwiki link: In lieu of a (forthcoming) factbook, I present to you my vision statement
      Culture: Utogoan areal cultures are a mixture of Papuan (areal, of course) and West African (also areal, of course) inspirations. I don’t have many specifics at the moment (they are also forthcoming), so if you were a real stickler about cultural areas you could really put me near either of those given they exist on the map.
      Climate: Tropical monsoon (Am) or tropical rainforest (Aw) in the south, transitioning into tropical savanna (Af) as you go north (near the center), and subtropical dry forest/miombo (BSh) in the north. Basically, hot and mostly wet. I imagine a fair amount of rivers and mountains as well, but those don’t matter to me as much as the general climate.
      History: I’ll keep it very brief and adapt it from my vision statement -  First settled approximately 14,000 years ago by Pre-Proto-Utogoan-speaking peoples practicing agriculture and village settlement; territory of present-day Utogo was also likely contacted by other groups in her area; antiquity consisted mostly of trade networks and wars between several Utogoan-speaking ethnic confederations; colonized by a foreign power at some point.
      Desired Location: Surprise me

      Hello again, i would like to request an update to my topography. I have taken some inspiration from the western canadian coast in wurldbuilding my culture so i think having a 'rocky coast' might help with the realism of some things, so i've decided on pushing my hight to the sea in the region pictured below, with the red (50-500m) color going to the coast (the map i drew has it neer the coast, but it like the bigger red spot to reach the coast itself, while the smaller one, to the east, be more back, like in the map), the blue (500-2000m) color is also pulled towards the coast a bit. Thanks in advanced!
      Map (note: please dont mind that sploch of greenish-blue, i messed upand forgot that area was part of the river delta):

      Here are some pictures of what i generally want that region to resemble:
