History 

 

Early History 

The islands were inhabited until 1790 when a fleet of Gotneskan Ships got lost and landed on one the main small islands. Oral tradition has since reported at least 50 shipwrecks but only about 20 have been recovered with modern technology.

 

In the Spring of 1809 a group of about 1000 sailors left the capital city of Læniguëíl and headed to Tundurin. They arrived on 21 July 1809 and established the now Capital City Sølvarna.


 

1809s - 1900s:

 Founding and Early Development

The Gotneskan sailors settled on the island, bringing their maritime skills and knowledge of fishing. They name the island "Tundurin," inspired by its rugged, snow-covered landscapes. The settlement grows into a fishing village, focusing on sustenance fishing for the first few decades.

 

Early 20th Century: Industrialization and Seafood Boom

In the early 1900s, advancements in fishing and seafood processing techniques transformed Tundurin's economy. The discovery of abundant marine resources leads to the rise of commercial fishing, and Tundurin becomes a major supplier of seafood products. The capital city, Sølvarna, develops rapidly as a hub for trade and seafood processing.

 

Mid 20th Century: Modernization and Cultural Revival

During the mid-20th century, Tundurin embraced modernization while retaining its cultural heritage. The island's unique folklore and the goddess Sølvarna become central to local identity. Cultural festivals, celebrating maritime traditions and the mythical goddess, draw visitors from nearby nations.

 

Late 20th Century: Environmental Concerns and Conservation

As awareness of environmental issues grows, Tundurin takes steps to ensure sustainable fishing practices. The island's leaders collaborate with international organizations to preserve its marine ecosystem. Eco-tourism gains popularity, providing visitors with the opportunity to experience Tundurin's pristine landscapes and rich marine life.

 

21st Century: Technological Advancements and glubal Partnerships

Tundurin continues to adapt to changing times. Technological innovations improve seafood processing efficiency while minimizing environmental impact. The island fosters diplomatic relationships with neighboring nations, participating in international efforts to address climate change and promote marine conservation.

I have a question about this expansion.

So according to our climate map that particular island has a climate considered Ice Cap, in essence very similar to conditions like living on Antargis. Your GDP value indicates 4 which is 20,000-45,000. How are the people of this island generating what appears to be more economic activity per capita than your mainland in quite literally the most hostile climate on Eurth? You mention eco-tourism as well, but getting to that island must be difficult and I can't imagine it would be able to support many tourists in such an environment.

I also find it kind of surprising that 1000 people in 1809 are able to successfully colonize this place when it takes massive efforts to support that level of population for only half the year at an RL location like McMurdo Station in the modern era.

Not trying to be harsh, it's just the island feels off existing like this.

Thanks for relaying.

I thought the climate was tundra. Not great but still livable. But the island so small i could had thought it was a different climate zone.

Will for GDP i just put all the points there because it's really the only cato... that the points could go.

I'm sure some rich people would spend thousands to visit the small island. But there could be like a cross Argic-Adlantic Cruise. Which with something like that would help with the economy.

For the 1809 population I agree that a little much. Would say 100-250 people be okay?

So we are fine with you get the expansion, we just think for RP purposes the GDP stat of the island should be lowered to 2. It just makes more sense that way.

Okay cool and the gdp stat is totally okay with me. 

Is the climate Tundra or Ice Cap? I looked at the one on the wiki and it seems more tundra but the last update looks more ice cap.

So is that all you had for me?

Hi - sorry. The island's climate is ice cap. Do you have a new GDP per capita in mind?
