Nation in Eurth: Free City of Ekar

Capital location: Coastal (city-state)
Population: 58,730 (Low)
GDP: $44,270 p/capita nominal (Very High)

Factbook/iiwiki link: IIWiki (currently sandbox)
Culture: Heavily influenced by Arabic (especially Levantine) cultures around the eastern Mediterranean.
Climate: Dry, hot summers and cool winters (Köppen climate classification Csa, or a hot-summer Mediterranean climate).
History: A formerly important port in antiquity, Ekar has been annexed, occupied, and a tributary of numerous regional powers and empires throughout it's long history. This has left a diverse and multi-religious city-state in its wake.
Desired Location: No specific desired location, although it seems a spot in Memopotamia would make by far the most sense.
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:
