History:

  • Prehistoric: Nomadic Celts
  • 1600-1500 BCE: First Lami (Sami) people
  • 300 CE: Vikings from Ateenia or other vaguely Nordic areas
  • 500-1000 CE: Viking Age
  • 1300 CE: Mostly consolidated into Kingdom of Karolina, Kingdom of Kullarnas, and Duchy of Nordlund, fighting for control of Fina.
  • 1500s/1600s CE: Repeated attacks by the Rankari nation of Markovy leading to antagonization of Rankaris and actually leads to further unification.
  • 1724: The three kingdoms unite to become the Kingdom of Fina.
  • 1731-1735: 1st Straits War against the Markovic Tsardom, leading to some of the lands lost in previous centuries.
  • Late 1700s: Expansion and incorporation of eastern areas into the kingdom like Drakön or the northern Hästhuvud river basin.
  • 1804: After years of building up and expanding their respective empires, Rankar and Fina go to war in the 2nd Straits War. Fina wins, annexing the three Velescia regions, however not establishing full control of Middle Velescia.
  • 1877-1883: 3rd Straits War, Fina loses, losing control of the Middle Velescia (Shinovo) and Lower Velescia (Velland) regions, while maintaining control of Upper Velescia (Östranka). Large financial cost for Fina leads to growing unrest.
  • 1907: Foundation of the FFF.
  • 1914: Kullarnasstad Massacre, catalyst of the Civil War.
  • 1915-1924: Foundation of the Kulleholm government and Civil War. Communists win. Fina becomes a de facto one-party communist state.
  • 1930s-1960s: Alliance formed between Rankari communist state (name still being worked on) and Fina.
  • 1960s: Rankari-Finan split. Dangerously close to war, almost splitting the communist wurld. Loose alliance remains, but some semblance of tension remains.
  • 1989: Finan Revolution, violent overthrow of communist government, establishment of the Republic of Fina.
  • 1992: Discovery of natural gas in the Östranka region makes it much more economically enticing and attractive, along with its location near the straits.
  • 1996: Velescian War between Fina and Rankar over the Östranka region, ending in embarrassment for both sides. Both sides have likely been building up for part 2 ever since, and tensions have been increasingly building over time.

Desired Location:

Explanation for location: Haven't really seen anybody do this but I feel like it'd be pretty useful to show my thinking behind this spot. It's in an area that's already been established as having a Nordic culture, gives room to my west for the Rankari nations, also fitting along with a bit of a Slavic belt or arc from Prymontian Rus to Sanarija. The only issue I really have with the location is that the climate is predominantly subarctic, where optimally the coastal regions like the areas around Tullinge and Karolinaburg would be more temperate, however I don't see this as too much of an obstacle for me. This plot of land measures out to 268,000 km^2 (measured out in google Eurth), just barely under the threshold of being High tier in land area. If this is too close to being a High land area, I'll gladly add another point to my Land area stat.

I would also like to set up some NPCs for the Rankari nations, however I can understand if I have to do some actual RP and contributions first before being able to establish these NPCs.

Hello Acadia Fina, congratulations on passing the academy. I would say deja vu but Orioni was the one who did your last map application :P.

Your stats appear to be line within their respected ranges. 260,000 - 270,000km^2 is a bit of a blurry, but from previous applications and issues it seems like the consensus is that 268,000 km^2 should be fine.

Honestly there isn't much to say, everything is good, the only thing left is requesting consent from @Mokhavia and @Sanarija to be so close to them. If they do not reply within a week consent will be implied. My only request is that you only have a maximum of 4 cities - this is due to file size as we're getting close to the maximum size my computer will allow for converting into a .png file.

In that case, I would like to have the cities of Tallträdvik, Kulleholm, Karolinaburg, and Obbola, thank you!
