Congratulations on passing the academy, now let's get you on the map, shall we?

Your stats seem fine, however do know that it's unlikely your specific land area will be possible on Eurth as geography often plays a big role in defining the borders of nations. However I will take note of your desire to be on the far-end of the 270,000 - 350,000 km^2 range.

Culture and Climate
Indic (I'm assuming in the sense of Indo-Aryan) is native to Europa (under Mirialoyche), so unless your people are colonists from Europa, Middle Eastern and more specifically Semitic is probably the best bet (perhaps you could have had a minor colonial period in the form of a protectorate?).

For climate, below is a map of all locations that fit your requirements

The darkest green highlighted on the map are regions of Eurth where Monsoons occur. However, within tropical locations monsoon-like climate of a wet season and a dry season are the norm just to a lesser extent then places like India.


And this is a map of the main cultural areas of Alharu that need to be maintained due to pre-existing lore. It'll be a tight squeeze for your country, but certainly possible! Out of the possible areas for your country to go I have selected 5 locations which I believe fit your country the best. Do note that all borders shown are just approximations and we can iron out their details on the Discord afterwards.

1 & 2: Landlocked Chenshas

346,000 km^2 and 349,200 km^2 respectfully, both of these locations somewhat match your requests (however not exactly). Proposal 1 has two semi-major rivers within it's borders, and although not shown on the climate map above the climate is a warm to 'cold' semi-arid environment. It also puts you next to Kanikhstan another Middle Eastern nation and with mountains within your borders.

Proposal 2 has the great river stretching from the Chenshas Lake down to Kertosono with a warm semi-arid climate and mountains inside the country. The biggest downside is that that region has important ancient history to both Fulgistan, myself, and Volta to a lesser extent. As it was the original homeland of the !Aztec and still the home to many Uto-Aztecan groups which you would have to accommodate for historically or in the modern day.

Both regions ofc suffer from being landlocked, however Proposal 2 will give you the opportunity to have a free NPC border Fulgistan to allow for indirect ocean access.

3: Landlocked northern Alharu

At 350,000 km^2, this is also another landlocked location that possesses an internal desert and a warm semi-arid climate with mountains and a significant river. Like proposal 2 you will also get a free NPC to allow you to indirectly access the ocean.

4: Western Alharu

347,000 km^2. This area has some mountains on it's south-eastern border as well as a major river with most of the country in a warm semi-arid climate, however the river itself is in the desert climate. This also puts you directly on the Egyptian coastal between Egyptian Hemahat and Egyptian-like Cashar. Expect some level of Egyptian influence.

5: Eastern Alharu

Coming out at 347,000km^2, there is a major river with some highland topography in the far west, however currently the climate is all wrong (however will be fixed in the near to mid future to be Mediterranean in type).

Great, thanks for the options. I think climate wise and culturally I could work with option 4. I will retcon my factbook and tweak my culture a bit to make it fit, but it's opened some avenues for RP I hadn't considered so looking forward to it. 🙂

Hope you can join West Alharu Gang! Lots of things planned between my own nation, @Cashar and @Esonice, particularly during the colonial and industrial eras of the region (1700-1900). You're always welcome to partake in whatever West Alharu-Thalassa things you see. We'll be sure to tag you in future OOC planning in case you're interested.

      Hello there. Here is my application for a place on the map for Transbaltia.
      Nation in Eurth:
      Thank you to @Vostau for making the flag!
      Capital name: Tavliga
      Capital location: [coastal? in-land? riverside?] See the map
      Stats Chosen:
      1 Population
      2 GDP
      1 Land
      Factbook/iiwiki link: https://iiwiki.us/wiki/Transbaltia (a work in progress)
      Culture: Mixture of Baltic cultures, with Prussian/Baltic German (I’ll think of a new name) domination in politics)
      Climate: similar to real Baltic states, can have warm summers but cold and icy winters.
      History: Not done a lot of history yet but Transbaltia is made up of several duchies, over the years they have fallen into the hands of their neighbours, Transbaltia was formed just over a century ago after its liege nation lost a war and Transbaltia was made a protectorate of the victory nation. Since then Transbaltia has gained its independence, and is a modern and prosperous country. However there are tensions between the ethnicities, and the power of the (Baltic German) nobility is being threatened.
      Desired Location:

      If It fits the point is would like more land in the central north. The Capital is called Tavliga(yellow dot) the second city is called Kaurtburg. The borders can be fixed to be better but I would like to border uppsund and dazhdinia. Thank you.

      Hello there, I know it is highly uncommon for a relatively new person which has done so far only few things for Eurth to ask for a NPC nation to be station on their border, yet here I am.
       (note, the north-western and easternmost boundaries should align to the rivers, I found only a pixelated jpeg version, so the drawing there is approximate)
      I would like to ask for this nation to be formed south-west from me, being named "Dazhdinia" in Anglish and "Daẑinıja"/"Даҗіния" in Dazhdin (a slavic conlang I am working on which relies on nasal vowels and yats). The general idea of the country is to be a general eastern european counterpart for my roleplay, having the general history of a authoritiarian takeover of the country in 1920's, which resulted in a conflict with @Walneria which ran concurrently with the Stedorian-Walnerian war and ended up with a defeat and an economical collapse of the right-wing authoritarian government and a communist revolution in late 40's or early 50's. Then, the nation might've aligned itself closer to other socialist nations in the region, most notably @DPR Velaheria and @Stedoria. In late 80's or very early 90's, a peaceful revolution was crushed by a military action and the new regime has displayed extremely authoritarian tendencies, which in turn caused it to lose ground and succumb to the second, violent, revolution in 1998. Eversince then, the nation has greately recovered from the economical desparity it faced back then, but it also has a long way to go.
      The general idea for a nation is a counterpart to the past and current countries of the former socialist bloc, most notably Yugoslavia, Poland, Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union. At the present day, I envision the nation as a federation of five countries. Three of them, Posąvragia (capital in Gromųva, which is also the federal capital), Kozlųka (which is the ethnically deverse half-Posąvrag half-Syranik heart of the nation, similar to Bosnia) and Syranika (capital in Jilinsk) are Dazhdin (similar to Serbo-Croat, there would be some rather tense discussions on wether Dazhdin is a single language with Posąvragian and Syranik literary forms or if it is a language family consisting of Posąvragian and Syranik), while the other two are of different ethnicities. I envision Ljukrina (capital in Brěgava) to be a rather multi-cultural region with many Ustokans (Czechs) and Maleniks (Sorbs) living in the area, maybe with a possible Dolch (German) language offshoot and some Slovak population. And finally, there is the Jalivia (capital in Kolikovo), which is the westernmost part of the nation. I want to leave that one's history open to potential people which come to settle next to it, but in general, it is probably the most different region of them all and possibly has a rich history of secessionism.

      The flag itself presents the diverse nature of the nation: the blue stripe stands for the Posąvrag eagle, while the green stripe stands for the traditional green Syranik shield, which features a fleur-de-lis (both or and argent were used). The white in between is often interpreted as the "middle road", but it is rather more likely that it was simply a tincture used in both of the coats of arms. The wreath is possibly the most controversial part of the flag, because it may ring the bell of the blood that was spilled in the name of socialism, but in this case, it stands for the general fame that Dazhdinia is bound to achieve if it just tries to reach it.
      Out-of-character, it would provide Walneria with a semi-direct sea access and would pose an interesting dilemma in Walnerian politics - Do we align with a struggling democratic slavic nation over a highly organized germanic brother? Do we need to align at all? - With those things and many more, such as the idea of multiple Dazhdinia-Walneria interractions, I would really love to have that nation added.
      The general displacement of points on the stats are: 2 for economy, 1 for area and 1 for population
      If there is anything I neglected to mention, please be sure to remind me over it!
      Sincerely, @Walneria

      Nation in Eurth: Greater Zaxar (or just "Zaxar")
      Flag: https://www.nationstates.net/images/flags/uploads/greater_zaxar__605732.png
      Capital name: Sandrica
      Capital location: Sandrica should be on a river, preferably a large one.
      Stats Chosen: 10,000,000 population ------- 5,000 GDP ------- 790,000 km2
      Factbook/iiwiki link: https://www.nationstates.net/nation=greater_zaxar/detail=factbook/id=main
      Culture: European-American Culture
      Climate: Cold winters with warm summers (temperate), similar to the climate of New England.
      History: Zaxar was founded in 1803 through a revolution so there was a nation before 1800 but it does not yet have a defined age. A long history of peace, prosperity, and growth until 1926. Zaxar just finished a 74 year total war which lowered the population and ruined the economy. For more info you can see my factbook.
      Desired Location: Somewhere with many rivers and a large coastline would be ideal. The coast can be of a large lake as well as ocean although I would like access to the sea (or I may just RP an expansion to the sea which may be better anyway). Some potential places I had thought of (I'm open to other spots) were that large lake in Argis, Auraid Bay, Yeetland, Nordhavet, or between Hinterlands and Walneria.
