Clamash, officially the State of Clamash, is a state of the Federal States. The state is situated along the coast of the Asperic Ocean, with an international border with the Deodeca (Provinces of Peralia, Nawagan, and Riverina) to the west, the state of Tauhon to the north, the state of Sierra to the northeast, state of Riopoderos to the east, Wychelle to the southeast, and state of Illuvia to the south. Clamash is well known for the eastern mountain range. Other important geographical features in the state include the Henrietta River Valley and Limestone Hills. Due to its location and topography, Clamash is one of the rainiest states.

The state's name derives from the Clamash River, which's name is derived from the Castellanese "clamar" in reference to the former Blanco Rapids. Clamash has just over 2 million residents.

The largest city in Clamash is Wahanta, with approximately 62.22% of the state's population in the metropolitan area (Trentonson, Meade, & San Ramon Counties). Wahanta is an important industrial and economic hub, developed as a port and rail hub for commodities of the West Lakes region. While transportation remains the principal sector of the city's business base, Wahanta has become a major center of the FSA insurance industry.

The state capital, Clifford, is part of the Wahanta-Clifford Metropolitan Area. Unlike Wahanta, Clifford is located on the ocean coast. Clifford is an older city than Wahanta and was originally a Castellanese mission. The city is home to the unicameral state government, which is the chief sector of the local economy. Clifford is home to Spiritus Apparitio University which is located at the site of the original mission.

Other important cities include:

-Gantiac, which is located at the crossroads of FS-50 and FS-91 and is home to the flagship state land-grant university, University of Clamash-Gantiac.

-Cook Springs, which is located in the Cordilleras. Cook Springs was named for the Cook Hot Springs, which are now a resort. The city is a popular year-round destination for locals, second-home buyers, and tourists. The 1996 Pax Nova Winter Games were held in Cook Springs.

-Saunebago, which is located in southern Clamash at the crossroads of FS-40 and FS-91. Saunebago is the economic hub of the southern half of the state.

History

Before Ulethan settlement, Native Archantan tribes including the Pahareek, Burrakoo, Nantee, Lumquah, Saunebago, and Gahaha.

The northern Clamashegian coast was settled by the Castellanese in the early 1700s. Despite the fertility of the Henrietta River valley, the Castellanese only founded a few coastal settlements including San Ramon. The Ingerish eventually fought and won most of present day Clamash from the Castellanese. As per the Treaty of San Ramon, the Castellan ceded all territory claims in present day Clamash. After Deodeca's independence from Ingerland, Clamash became a province in the nation of Deodeca. It was not until the 1842 when Clamash became territory of FSA through the Clamash Purchase. In 1866, the State of Clamash was admitted to the union.

Geography

Clamash is the southernmost coastal state in the Federal States. It borders Tauhon to the north, primarily separated by the Clamash River. Sierra is to the northeast. Clamash borders Riopoderos and Wychelle to the east which's border is formed by the Cordilleras. AR120-47 is located to the south. Clamash and AR120-47 comprised the Clamash Territory until partitioned. To the west are the Asperic Ocean and the Deodecan provinces of Peralia, Nawagan, and Riverina.

Clamash is part of a region known as the Northwest. It is also considered part of the Mountain States, and the southern half is sometimes considered part of the West Lakes region.

Regions

Clamash can generally be divided into four regions: coastal Clamash, northeastern Clamash, middle Clamash, and southern Clamash.

Coastal Clamash consists of rolling hills, coastal plains, and river valleys from the foothills of the Cordilleras to the Asperic Ocean as well as the northern extent of the Limestone Hills.

Eastern Clamash consists of the most mountainous parts of the state in the Cordilleras. Due this region being sparsely populated, it more typically refers to the northeastern corner of the Clamash around Cook Springs rather than the full extent of the Cordilleras.


Middle Clamash is generally as the area between the City of Gantiac and City of Rexville west of the Cordilleras. It consists of the broad Henrietta and Gahaha River valleys and the majority of the Limestone Hills. Southern Clamash consists of approximately the lower 1/3 of the state. It is relatively flat compared to the rest of the state. It consists of river valleys and rolling hills, and is split between the Henrietta River and Grand lakes watersheds. It is considered part of the West Lake Plains.
