Noun Project languages icon 105908 cc.svgHistory & culture
A brief description of the intended culture and language

Towonga is an English speaking country with English-named roads and cities and left-handed traffic. Naming conventions are also in English and based off of Australian road naming conventions. It is heavily inspired off of Victoria (and Australia in general), as it is where I grew up and is my favourite place on Earth.

Towonga is a multicultural society with a minimal history of wars. A person who lives in Towonga is Towongan.

Closing, your desired theme of mapping is suited for AR060 Deodeca, have a look around there and consider a fresh application. wangi (talk) 08:18, 20 May 2022 (UTC)
