Etymology

The story behind the tale of the Beginnings of Mergany is connecyed to the name of Mergany. When the first explorer to Mergany saw a goosander, which he mistook it as a merganser. The Gobrasi explorer Johann Adalard then named the country after its Latin name Mergus merganser, thus calling the state Mergany.

History

Discoveries shows that ancient humans were present in Mergany at least 350 000 years ago. One of the oldest complete hunting weapon found anywhere in the world was discovered in northern Holswig. This is the settlement of most Reisjian Tribes.

See also the Timeline of Mergan history.

Rise and fall of Reisja (802- 1047)

The first king established the Reisja Kingdom, with the Royal King Lotharan Geyer ruling the Reisjian Kingdom. He established trade with many nations, being on a trade route from inland Northern Uletha to Orano and Commonia. He also planned cites and villages to be built for the population who were living in poor housing conditions. This, in turn, caused the citizens to pay higher taxes. Neumann Geyer then became the second king in 834 AD. The citizens pleaded the king to reduce the high taxes, but to no avail. Evil was on the rise under his rule, as he did not make much effort to keep law and order. He was not popular, and in most history books he was mentioned only very briefly.

In 865, King Neumann died, Wagner Neumann, his eldest son took over. He was very fearful that he will be murdered, so he built a wall around his palace, and employed a thousand spies to guard his palace. He even give orders to kill his brothers for some trumped up charges. The people thought he was crazy, and they barged into the palace. He was then pulled off his throne, but luckily he was not murdered.

Wabian Rule(1047-1434)

In 1047, a revolution against the Reisjan Royal Court happened, and thus they were driven out of the country. King Wabia Schermann took over as the next King of the Wabian Kingdom.

Geography

Mergany is the southernmost of the five countries that form the Scythe of Uletha in Eastern Uletha, with Viljanni and Eshein bordering to the south, UL012 and Raiden to the east and UL052 to the north. It is also bordered by the Darcodian Sea and the Gulf of Volta. It lies mostly between latitudes 43.5° and 48.5° N and longitudes 129° and 133° E. Mergany also includes two oversea territories, one in the east of UL012, called Fiorentia, and one in the west next to Reeland, called Johannastat.

Climate

The island is dominated by an oceanic climate with quite narrow temperature differences between seasons. Thus the temperature varies with the seasons seldom dropping below −10°C or rising above 30°C. The prevailing wind is from the east and bears frequent spells of mild and wet weather from the Asperic Ocean, although the western parts are mostly sheltered from this wind since the majority of the rain falls over the eastern regions the western parts are therefore the driest. Rainfall occurs year-round, with no consistent dry season. The winters often are mild, especially at the western coasts. Summers are warmest in the west of Mergany, being closest to the Darcodian Sea. Heavy snowfall are seldom in winter due to the lack of high ground.

Odd numbers are usually applied to north-south oriented roads, and even numbers for east-west routes.

Other main public roads are maintained by the States, called Landesstraße. The numbers of these roads are prefixed with "C", but are usually not seen on direction signs or written in maps. They appear on the kilometre posts on the roadside. Numbers are unique only within one state.

Minor roads and streets are built and maintained by the municipalities. These roads have the number prefix "D".
