Nation in Eurth: Free City of Ekar

Flag: Z6L2kWZ.png?1

Capital name: Ekar

Capital location: Coastal (city-state)

Stats Chosen:

Population: 58,730 (Low)

GDP: $44,270 p/capita nominal (Very High)

Land Area: 50 km2 (Low)

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.

Quite an interesting nation. I don't think we've ever had a nation on the scale of a city ever make it pass graduation, so let me first congratulate you on that and let's make you the first to be on the map. :)

Your stats, as written, come out to 0 in population, 4 in GDP, and 0 in area. Overall your GDP is $2,599,977,100. Everything seems to be good.

Regarding area, you ask specifically for Csa area, but Csa is quite rare both in the real wurld and on Eurth, so I've also expanded out to include Csb and Bsh which also have hot dry summers and cool winters. I've also included Bsk at similar latitudes and regions to Bsh and Csb/Csa as they would be cooler, but still not snow-in-winter level cool.

You also stated Memopotamia to be your desired location, it should be noted that Memopotamia is actually a Sahel and Subsaharan African area with recent Europa retconning that will be logged soon in the V5 Forum Thread. Northern Alharu is instead our main Semitic region

Besides that, your requests seem to be reasonable, so below I have produced a couple proposals. Due to your nation's size, I can't actually show you the proposals, your nation's size is less then the degree of uncertainty when I make usual proposals. So instead I'll map all proposals on a single map with red points.


All of these points have your exact stats (besides I can't actually map them lol). A, B, and D all fall under Csa/Csb climate, with C falling under Csc. A and B are a bit far away from other members but do provide you ample space to make your lore as you like. C, D1, and D2 are all much closer to other players with D1 bordering Sayf (an Arabic country) and Westzeeland (an country that colonised an arabic region), and D2 bordering Westzeeland and Variota (a dutch nation). It is also likely that Westzeeland will be removed in the future so worrying about clashing lore may not be an issue. Location C is closer to Vostau, which it's western half has arabic influence, and places Ekar on the boundary of the Ygros and Sakspati Seas a historically important region.

Hello! The spot labelled C seems an good spot for Ekar. In such case, it'd probably lie on the south of the easternmost island, on the Ygros Sea. Does that sound acceptable?

      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:

      Hello, I would like to canonise the Unduk lakes (pictured below) and a visible widening of the strait conecting them to the Canamo sea (@Prymont has said in the discord that they aren't opposed to this)
      The Unduk lakes (could you meassure them please) :

      The strait mentioned with a suggestion from me, also if you're able to slightly widen the strait neer the port of Ysta in Mokhavia that would be apriciated:
