1667-1676 AD
Nine Year War (Kalmish: Neunjähriger Krieg), a religious war. A large group of Kamlish speaking people settles in Sathria within Zomontepe near Roantra. During the first years of the war, many catholic people flee from Kalm to Zylanda for religious reasons. After the war, many protestant returnees arrive from Zylanda.

1679 AD
Kalmish Reformation, provoked by the expansion of Sathrian mendicant orders to Kalm and the protest of Kalmish religious adherents against this development. Also, reformed Zylandian returnees had a large influence here. Religious adherents of the new Sathrian persuasions flee back to Sathria.

Transportation

Kalm has an extensive network of good-quality transportation infrastructure. It consists of a dense and hierarchic road system with a quite dense motorway (Autobahn) network with only a few few major gaps, a dense and hierarchic railway network (with many rural sections closed during the 20th century but with the tendency of re-opening even smaller lines) used for both passenger and freight traffic in a very high extent and including a growing network of high-speed lines (FLINX), a network of (artificial) inland shipping waterways, important sea shipping ports and facilities at the coasts of West Sea and Vinn Sea, and an hierarchic airport system with Tarott-Kemburg International Airport being the country's main international hub. Also, the constantly growing bicycle path network, often with its own right-of-way and the first grade-separated, prioritized Radschnellweg (bicycle fast-track) sections opened during the last decade is worth mentioning here.
