This page provides information for mapping highways in the Federal States.

Summary

The Federal States Defense and Commerce Motorway Network is a nationwide system of motorways within the Federal States of Archanta. These high-speed, limited-access roads connect all regions and most states from coast to coast and border to border. The network, which includes both free motorways and tolled motorways, is mapped using the FS-xx labels, with FS-xx (TOLL) used for tolled motorways. Odd-numbered routes run north-south, starting with lower numbers in the east and increasing the further west, with primary routes generally ending in "1". Even-numbered routes run east-west, starting with lower numbers in the in the south and higher numbers in the north, with primary routes generally ending in "0". Bypass routes through or around cities are three-digit routes where the last two digits are the same as the "parent" route; spur routes (that connect only once to the motorway network) are generally not considered part of the motorway system and should be labeled as state routes.

Rules

Major Routes

  • Even-numbered routes generally run east-west, and generally increase from south to north; odd-numbered routes generally run north-south, and generally increase from east to west.
  • This system was chosen based on the overall assumption that the FSA generally grew from southeast to northwest.
  • Primary routes end in 0 (east-west) or 1 (north-south).
  • This system was chosen to be logical and somewhat intuitive, but also to be different from the U.S. Interstate system.
  • Each state is solely responsible for the routings of their highway numbers.
  • Routes shown as concurrent in the system map below are not required to be assigned to the same highway if a parallel highway exists.
  • Coordination is encouraged between the mappers in the metropolitan Stanton area (New Carnaby, Penquisset, Delenshire Islands) to determine routings and terminus locations.
  • Since the metropolitan Stanton area is large, complex, and relatively well-mapped in regards to highways, mappers in this area will have more control over routings and labeling.
  • States may elect to change the terminus of a primary route provided a direct connection is still available to the designated terminus.
  • Example 1: A route with a terminal city short of a national boundary may be extended to the boundary, or may otherwise be extended beyond the terminal city provided the route does not leave the state.
  • Example 2: If two routes run concurrent to a city that is the terminus of the routes, that route may be truncated to where the concurrency would begin.
  • All 2-digit routes must connect at least three states or travel at least 400 miles, whichever is less restrictive.
  • This encourages coordination, and reduces the likelihood of a situation where the FSA "runs out" of numbers.
  • This map is not absolute. Neighboring states are encouraged to coordinate routings based on geography, built infrastructure, and other constraints.
  • For non-primary routes, states are permitted to use any available highway number that fits in the overall numbering scheme and satisfies the rest of these rules.
  • All states must agree to the overall route concept. When a general route is chosen, stateowners should contact the FSA coordinator, who will assign an available route number from the table below.
  • Exceptions to the numbering scheme, or a special request for a particular route number, may be permitted with the approval of the FSA coordinator.

Bypass Routes

  • Bypass routes are permitted and may be numbered by individual states.
  • Bypass numbers do not require FSA Coordinator approval.
  • To number a bypass route, add a digit to the left of the "parent" route (e.g., Highway 211 is a spur route of Highway 11).
  • This was chosen based on how route numbers tend to be pronounced: "Highway eleven has a spur route of Highway two-eleven" or "Highway fifty has a spur route of Highway two-fifty". Adding the supplemental digit to the end of the major route number leads to confusion, especially for single-digit highways (Highway 12 being a spur of Highway 1 would lead to confusion; Highway 012 being a spur of Highway 1 would be awkward to pronounce), pronounciation ("Highway eleven has a spur route of Highway eleven-two" or "Highway eleven has a spur route of Highway one-twelve" or "Highway eleven has a spur route of Highway one-hundred-twelve"), and potential misunderstandings ("Highway fifty has a spur route of Highway fifty-two").
  • The same bypass route number is not permitted to be used more than once within a single state, unless a link between the two individual routes is planned as a future route, currently mapped as under construction, or if the link was abandoned/demolished in the past.
  • States are encouraged to map disruptions to highways, which adds realism (freeway revolts, decommissionings, budget restrictions, natural disasters, etc.)
  • Bypass routes that cross state lines should have the same number, and states should coordinate with neighbors before mapping them.
  • To avoid confusion, do not use the same spur route number as any other spur route within 300 miles/500 kilometers.
  • ALL bypass routes MUST connect with at least two parent highways.
  • Connecting with the same parent route twice is permitted.
  • Connecting to another bypass route is permitted.
  • Spur routes that do not reconnect with the national system should be labeled as state highways.
  • Exception: spur routes that connect airports, seaports, ferries, or military installations are permitted to be labeled as FS-xxx motorways.

Exceptions

Some motorways "break" the numbering grid based on their alignments. Exceptions are permitted on a case-by-case basis, but should generally be avoided wherever possible.

  • Motorways 1 and 2, historically the earliest primary highways in the FSA, are numbered apart from the primary scheme.
  • Motorway 22 runs south of Motorway 20 east of Cobbet, NC.
  • Motorway 85 crosses Motorway 89 in northwestern Seneppi.

System Map

This map is for planning purposes only. Individual routings are the sole discretion of each state owner, provided the route serves the same general areas shown below. If you'd like to make a significant change to the route shown below, please contact the regional coordinator. Decent-sized cities with at least some mapping are shown with red icons. Known planned cities are shown with green icons. Likely future city locations in future states are shown with black icons; these are purely theoretical and should not be assumed to be permanent locations of intersecting highways. Not all cities are shown, since intra-state routings are the sole responsibility of each individual state owner. This map shows primary routes only.

Table of Route Numbers

Locations noted with an asterisk (*) are outside the FSA; the motorway is expected to serve a port of entry with the neighboring country listed. States listed with a slash (XX/XX) indicate an alignment that will need coordination between the two listed states to determine which state should have the primary route. This does not preclude a bypass route in the other state. States listed in parenthesis are optional states in the corridor, based on motorway routing.

All available route numbers must be released by the FSA Coordinators before mapping. See Talk page for more details. Bypass routes (FS-xxx) do not require approval before mapping and should not be listed below.

Route relations include the southbound/westbound direction and are tagged with "type" = "route" + "route" = "road" + "ref" = "FS-XX".

Other Highways

Motor Trails

In addition to the national motorway network, an informal network of older, lower-speed highways also exist in the Federal States. These Motor Trails are not planned on a national basis, but rather through direct coordination among the various states. As such, this chart is not moderated, and mappers should coordinate with other states regarding naming, shield design, routings, etc. before posting here. Space to collaborate is available on the Discussion page. While motor trail names will likely appear in various locations throughout the map (for instance, as the existing name of a primary street through a small town), modern motor trails may not be readily apparent on the map due to bypasses, replacements by motorways, or other disruptions in the network. Motor trails should be mapped as relations for future wiki mini-map purposes.

Since the Federal States do not have an official national network of primary highways (see above sections regarding motorway development conversations), motor trails should be named (e.g., "Old Main Highway") rather than numbered. However, some motor trails will also likely be part of state highway networks and may carry state highway numbers in each state.
