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)


Mountainous in the south, with ranges in the northwest, northeast and central as well. A series of arable river valleys exist in the eastern section of the province, although they are separated by lower hills and ridges.


Dfb (warm-summer humid continental) throughout most inhabitable regions of the province. High elevations experience Dfc (subarctic without dry season) climates, while higher elevations will experience ET (tundra) and EF (ice cap) at the tips of the tallest mountains. Dfa (hot-summer humid continental) is present in small parts of northern Anderside region.

A brief description of the territory demographics, economic development, land occupation, infrastructure and mapping style

Development and land divisions:

The province has historically relied heavily on manufacturing, as well as resource extraction such as agriculture, forestry, fishing, and mining. Consider a "rust belt"-inspired economy, with large decline from mid-20th century until recently, with other sectors slowly gaining ground in recent decades, pushed by lower costs in the province as opposed to elsewhere in Deodeca. Railways are widespread given its industrial past, however infrastructure has been in need of repair for decades and passenger service has declined.

Population is mid-range, in the ballpark of 3-4 million (tentative), and population is concentrated primarily around rivers and arable valleys, as well as other economic centers

A map of tentative regions (2nd-level administrative) and their currently unnamed 3rd-level divisions is included below.

The lake is the defining feature of the province, and, as a side effect, the Northland region is somewhat culturally isolated. It's reasonable that a Mackinac/Confederation-esque bridge exists crossing the 9km-ish strait, but that's subject to discussion.


Inspirations include Atlantic Canada, Québec, and Midwestern U.S. states

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

History and language:

History will align with plans for Deodeca's history, with considerable Franquese influence. Native groups will be somewhat prominent in the province, predominantly the Aitun (Innu-equivalent)

Franquese was historically marginalized, but now holds equal status with English in government. Similar to New Brunswick language dynamics. Native representation is slowly gaining.

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.

My recent mapping primarily consists of Arguoise County, Agawaskway, under the guidance of Zeke:

Additionally, I used to map in Thirran (now KAB's) some three-ish years ago:

This is a very good territory request, and it sounds like it will fit into the larger plans for Deodeca quite nicely. Approved. --TheMayor (talk) 14:45, 2 March 2023 (UTC)
Keep in mind that Deodeca is a large collaborative project; as such, coordination, cooperation, and consistent activity are crucial to the project's success.

Appreciate the quick response. Thanks for your positive feedback!
