AR045-14 - Lévionnay


Noun Project Map icon 1463108.svgPhysical geography
An overview of climate, topography and landscape of the country. It is advised to also create a sketch, you can add a link to this (hosted on imgur or similar)

The province includes four great plains: St-Rigaud and Chamarande, around Hotago Bay, around the present town of Conque and further inland in the municipality AR045-15a just south of the Saggamanches hills.

The province of Lionnay also includes mountain ranges: the hills of the Saggamanches run through the whole province. To the north of Chamarande, this massif is particularly high, and reaches on certain peaks more than 3000m of altitude.

To the north of these peaks, the Massif du Chanceux is much lower. It covers almost all of the municipality AR045-15d as well as territories of the province of Sainte-Agnès.

From a hydrographic point of view, most of the rivers leave from the North to join the ocean in the South with the exception of the river currently named 21005499 which joins the Miticonce River at Labelle (Sainte-Agnès).


The climate of the province is a continental climate, cold in winter and rather warm. The mountain ranges being quite numerous, there are mountain climates in the northern part of the country, in particular with glaciers around relatively high peaks.


The landscapes are very similar to those of Sainte-Agnès, between plains composed of agricultural land and meadows, hills and medium mountains largely covered with forests, coastline with large beaches and even a bit of high mountain with more rocks and some glaciers.

Invest - The Noun Project.svgHuman geography
A brief description of the territory demographics, economic development, land occupation, infrastructure and mapping style

The province of Lévionnay hosts a very large human population, around four to eight million people. Most of this population is distributed on the coast, and in particular at the level of the future agglomeration of Balanque (near the current city of Conque) built around a vast estuary.

The province's GDP is quite large, divided between industry (which has a very practical coastline for exports), agriculture in the large plains, services in the Balanque agglomeration and tourism in the northern mountains and hills.

The human development index will be high to very high thanks to modern infrastructure. The Route de la Confédération (N1) which crosses the Ardennes federation also crosses the province of Lévionnay, the A1 motorway which connects Wadeville and Sainte-Inès passes through Le Lévionnay and new motorways and expressways will be laid out, in particular the A18 which will connect the Balanque capital to the north of the province and especially to the huge agglomeration of St-Jean-de-Chance (Sainte-Agnès). Railway lines, some of which at high speed, will also be laid out to facilitate the exchange of people and goods between the various urban and industrial centers of the province of Lévionnay.

The power supply will be provided by nuclear power plants located along the waterways for cooling, as well as by a few wind turbines and by numerous dams located especially in the mountains.

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

The official language of the province of Lévionnay is Franquese (French). The provinces of Sainte-Agnès and Lévionnay have always had strong cultural ties and their separation only dates from fairly recent times, the division corresponding above all to administrative imperatives rather than to a real cultural difference. Traces of human presence in the Balanque capital allow us to know that the urban center has been occupied for about 1500 years, and numerous archaeological sites throughout the province demonstrate that the sedentary human presence has existed for a long time in these territories.

Noun Project drawing icon 2123401.svgPast mapping
To support your request provide links to areas of OGF mapping which showcase your mapping skill. Mapping relevant to the requested theme & geography is especially useful
The {{coord}} template can optionally be used to link to the OGF map - it results in a nice formatted link. Or you can paste in a URL. I mapped the city of St-Jean-de-Chance in Sainte-Agnès, with many suburbs and an urban area that extends well beyond the city limits. There are notably two airports, one of which is international, a military base, four hydroelectric dams, historical monuments, a complete transport network with metro, tram, regional trains, three major stations as well as a multitude of smaller ones as well as many points of interest. interest in hobbies, economics, administration, etc.

I'm asking for my own territory to develop a whole province, not just a city, and I can't in Sainte-Agnès without use all the space dedicated to new users.

Discussion for clarification & decision

  • Thanks for the application - two initial requests. First, can you suggest an alternative name: Lionnay is too similar to Lyonnais. Secondly, can you supply a sketch map to help illustrate the plans. I will also reach out to newflanders, the Ardencia coordinator, for their views. Thanks/wangi (talk) 10:14, 29 August 2022 (UTC)
  • About the name of the territory, does "Lévionnay" in place of "Lionnay" could be suitable ? And about the plans, I drew two ones of topography and motorway but I couldn't import them. How can I do that ? Anyway, thank you for answering me. P Gaillard (talk) 16:02, 29 August 2022 (UTC)
    • Thanks, I think that's a better option. You need to use a sharing site like to share the sketch - upload and then paste in the URL here. Thanks/wangi (talk) 18:44, 29 August 2022 (UTC)
      • It's ok, I added the link of the two sketch maps in the sections concerned.
