Kastichetshan (CAST-ee-ketch-on) is a small province within the Dominion of Deodeca. Kastichetshan sits within a temperate oceanic climate, with some northern areas of the province sitting within being warm subtropical climates. As for topography, Kastichetshan features tall and rocky mountains on the western borders. Moving northeast, the land changes from tall mountains, to low rolling hills, where many farms, ranches, and rural communities are spread. Provided in the sketch below, there is a basic plan on natural cover for Kastichetshan  :

Natural Cover Plan

Kastichetshan features a few major rivers, with the headwaters originating from the rainy mountains. The rivers feature prominent and thriving agricultural regions along the Trans-Deodeca Route 1 corridor..

Major transportation corridors for Kastichetshan
Major Urban Centers for Kastichetshan

A majority of Kastichetshan ‘s population will live in the major urban centers that are shown above, most people living within Coalburne or Delbert City, and/or their respective suburban areas.  The second majority of population lives along the TDH-1 corridor, given that TDH-1 is the biggest transportation corridor within Kastichetshan.  Since Coalburne and Delbert City are set along the ocean, they could be potential areas for nautical ports and industrial commerce. Because they are also served by the Trans-Deodeca Highway System, they could also be potential shipping hubs within the region, especially Coalburne, with their industrial businesses and nautical shipments. The island off of the mainland, as per KAB’s suggestion, will be an island with many native reservations, with their largest city, Kaawch’sa. Many of the natives who reside on this island will mostly be identified as Penutian tribes (I haven’t devised OGF names for any of the Penutian tribes as of this application). The rural mapping style will be inspired by rural areas of Australia and Alberta/British Columbia/Saskatchewan, considering the region Kastichetshan is in.

A brief description of the intended culture and language

Following the planning of native reserves, Kastichetshan will be an Ingerish and Native speaking province. The Ingerish culture is based of the intended Most of the native cultures will be found within the native reservations where the native populations are centered (most notable in Kaawch’sa and other towson the main island and within the reserves). Most of the culture within the rest of the province (i.e., Coalburne, Delbert City, Port Stewart, etc.) will come primarily from Ingerish settlers. There is not much to be said here regarding history as of now, as it is yet to become more elaborate as development begins/continues, but the main events of Kastichetshan's history begins with Ingerish settlers arriving, and many of the natives were relocated (or killed; it depends on the overall history of Deodeca) to reservations.

Discussion for clarification & decision

  • Just a note to hopefully clear up any confusion: I did make the same application a month ago, but the admin(s) recommended I suspend it to get some more development completed within the two territories I currently own. After a month of mapping, I noticed that my territories weren't taking up a lot of my time, as would a single territory. So, considering that fact, I decided that a third territory wouldn't be an overbearing task to me. It will take a bit more of my time, but I plan that it will not be severely limiting to my mapping time/ability. If in the future I find this territory to be too much for me to handle, I plan to ask to withdraw the territory. Thanks in advance. Geoc3ladus (talk) 03:14, 13 September 2022 (UTC)
    • Just a note to say that Mayor and I are both a bit busy just now - will respond next week. /wangi (talk) 20:38, 18 September 2022 (UTC)

On 25 Nov 2022 the admin team will review activity levels on all three of your territories and, if you're able to maintain acceptable levels of activity in each territory, the application will be formally approved. --TheMayor (talk) 22:29, 25 September 2022 (UTC)
As a reminder, Deodeca is a collaborative project and all provinceowners are expected to be active both in mapping and in coordinating/collaborating with other Deodeca mappers.
