Agawaskway (abbreviated as AA and also known as Agawa) (Agawaskway: "âkâýwâskayikan") is a province in the Commonwealth of Deodeca. Agawaskway is home to one of the country's most populous cities, Kingstown, whose urban area has a population around 6.5 million. The province is not geographically interesting, featuring mostly rolling plains and forests interspersed with lakes and rivers. It sits on the coast of the Lake Amanecer and Lake Betaouais, part of the Grand Lakes. Agawa shares land borders with the neighbouring provinces Argueil, Nawagan, Newcambry, Ouanatchkan, Wirramay, AR060-10, the Odeka District, and internationally with Minnonigan, Federal States.


The name "Agawaskway" applies to both the Province and a family of indigenous groups that lived in the area. Its etymology is disputed, between between "wâskayikan" ("House") and "âkâýâsîmowin" ("Ingerish"), in the native language Agawaskway. The Government of Agawaskway states that the province is named after the Agawaskwayan people who inhabited the region around the Odeka River.[1]

There have been calls to change the name Agawaskway over the years.

  • In 1977, MLA George Martin introduced a bill to begin an inquiry into changing the province's name. The bill was defeated in the Agawaskway Legislative Assembly (ALA).[2]
  • In 2012, a satirical petition to change the province's name to "Kingstown and Friends" garnered 500 signatures. The petition was not addressed by the ALA.[3]
