Castellán is the motherland of the Castellanese Language, which corresponds to real life Spanish. All mapping (taking away certain place names that might have foreign etymologies), is going to be made in Spanish, in all the territory of Castellán. Think about it more like the birthplace of the Spanish language rather than 'OGF:Spain'.

This territory was previously an owned territory by a single user, which means the country won't start anew. Despite that, the first stage of the collaboration will involve cleanup of the country, given many places are too similar to their counterparts in Spain. The goal of Castellán is to bring an original, but representative motherland for all Spanish-speaking cultures in the map, that represents the culture of the Spanish-speaking region, allowing for significant creativity from the contributors.

Development Stages

The first stage of the collaboration will be cleanup and planning, where cleanup will be done and a draft for Castellán will be made. First stages will involve discussions about the coastline of the country (specially the eastern coast, that needs remodeling), its topology, hydrography, biogeography, and settlement structure (including main roads and cities). Any proposals will be welcome in that regard by any user interested in the project, that will end up in a vote to decide the final general shape of the country.
