Nation in Eurth: Ateenia (Kingdom of Ateenia)


Flag: spacer.png
 

Capital name: Atha
Capital location: On the coastline, on the smallest river.
Factbook link:
https://iiwiki.us/wiki/Ateenia
Newsroom link:


Culture: Ateenian (Based off of Norse culture with unique added features.)
Climate: Subarctic or Boreal climate with freezing winters and warm summers.
Location: spacer.png

The black border if possible, red border if black is over the limit or not possible. black dot is capital Atha. (if there is a need to further discuss then DM me in discord (*cencored*#7122)
 

History: The first tribesmen and hunters arrived to Ateenian lands from south, around 10,000 years ago and the first settlements began to grow along the rivers. Later on, settlers arrived to the northern coasts where they began settleing more intensivly and in matter of millenias, they made the northern coasts most populated in whole modern Ateenia. Ateenia as a kingdom itself was founded in 118. Before that, the Ateenian people were split into various clans, tribes, earldoms, jarldoms and lesser kingdoms. When Ateenia united it began using its first kings birth year as the start of Ateenian calender. Early Ateenians were renowned for their art of shipbuilding for being able to build strong ships that could sail both on rivers and oceans, thus giving them the ability to raid distant lands, which is the main reason Ateenian coastline is so populated, many people moved to the coastlines to be able to take part of raids.

Statistics: Population - 0   GDP - 2    Land Area - 2

Summers in siberian like climate are actualy very warm due to it being the closest part of the planet towards the sun during summer.

As for the ocean being frozen for over half of the year, is what i was looking for.

The capital is located there due to the seas being sailable half of the year (allbeit still dangerous due to floating ice) and due to historic reasons where people settled those areas for it being inhabited by seals who get hunted.

As for land size, i see i have expanding room so i wish to include the small lake on my southern border, inside my borders, for certain reasons.

Sure, I've seen the climate data of places like; Tiksi, Russia and Tromso, Normay and I've got to agree with that statement. Though given how harsh the winters are and how difficult agriculture, year-round travel, and industry might be there, would it be reasonable to assume your capital is likely a low-population centre? Perhaps selected for political, historical, or strategic reasons. 

Likely, I'd assume you would have higher population centres further south?

The Capital is very sparsely populated compared to other cities around Eurth and even compared to IRL wurld but it would still be one of the biggest cities in Ateenia due to historical reasons and political reasons. The main economic sectors of that city would be services and industry and such.

Overall the most populated areas in Ateenia would be the rivers, the capital and the southern area of Ateenia.

hmm that actualy is somewhat good point. If possible i wish to expand my claim to territory between prymonts border and the yellow border. (hopefuly the cartographer makes the borders as close to being like on the picture as possible. i tried to follow land formations with those borders.)

Thank you @Ateenia for being open to suggestions. 🙂

Yes, copying the borders from this image is not too difficult. So you can rest assured it will look very much like this.

Hello!
I've read over this post and land area appears to be suitable, no issue on that part. And I am sure you understand that agriculture will be difficult within Ateenia, the maximum extent of profitable agriculture in the region would be the Dwb climate. Much of your country will be Hemiboreal which means long, dark, harsh, winters. However this is not a death sentence, with the right timing and with strict and fast harvesting, cereals, rapeseeds, and grass crops are possible. Your flatter terrain will also favour the crops compared to the ruggedness of Scandinavia. It is highly likely in the past, your people were capable of permanent living in the far north but suffered from the occasional famine and societal collapse if not for a powerful unifying state or city in your southern coast. In my opinion I would follow what Orioni said, and historically have a summer capital in the DwB region - which kept your nation's societies from repeatedly collapsing - but also a winter capital to explain the existence of Atha which outlasted your summer capital as raiding became more lucrative.

(Not actual borders)

Regarding sea ice, you won't actually have much. Dfc regions rarely possess coastal sea ice and instead ET and EF possess ice sheets and sea ice. ET (the lighter grey) will have seasonal ice, whereas ET will have permanent sea ice. So year-round raiding is entirely feasible.

All in all your placement is perfectly fine if @Prymont is okay with it.

I am infact aware of the conditions there (i picked the area for that specific reason) and yeh i also realized not a while back that i wouldnt even have much seasonal ice there. As for the food source throughout history, they have relied mostly on hunting animals and fishing with agriculture only being a small extra for them. As for Atha, the reason it is and has been capital was infact because the founder of Ateenia was born and died in that city (which at the time was only recently evolving into a town). Alot of the population centers would still have been and still are in south around the southern river and on the southern coast.

The harsh conditions there are actualy one of the reasons the population is only around 4 million.

And yes i know agriculture is certainly a small part of my economy there which is why Ateenia relies heavily on trade and national resources making up for the lack of arable land.

      Hi once again. I know its been only few weeks since my last request but i would like the honored cartographer @Metztlitlaca to add the following major cities and ports to Ateenia.

       
      The red dots are major cities and towns.
      The black dots are the major ports.

      The names of said ports, towns and cities are:
      1) Grundvik
      2) Mandahús
      3) Fjoldall
      4) Myrrdall
      5) Osarvik
       
      Thank you!

      Hello!
      I'm completely changing Tagmatium's name and flag! Again!
      No, not really.
      Just a bit of a minor tweak.
      This is been something I've been meaning to ask for quite a long time. It is more window-dressing than anything that will have any meaningful impact on anything in terms of RP.
      Basically, the island with the city Glevokastron is a nominally independent protectorate of Tagmatium, although in reality it is all but an integral part of the Greater Holy Empire, lying as it does so close to both myself and @Haruspex. It's got a significant Tagmatine military presence in the form of military bases, and it plays a role as a lynchpin in the defensive plans of my nation.
      In line with other people's colonies and client states, could I have the name "Akwisia (Tag.)" added to it, as that's the name of the country. Ideally, the name "Brandhaefen" would be added in brackets under "Glevokastron", as the former is the native name for the city. I respect the fact that there might not be enough room for this without things being a bit squashed.
      As well as this, could the following flag be added? This flag would replace the Tagmatine one.
      Thanks a lot!
      No hurry on this, mind. It doesn't affect anything RP-wise.
