Noun Project Signature icon 619326 cc.svgTerritory ID and proposed name
The Territory ID (from OpenGeofiction:Territories, e.g. AR123a) and proposed name of the country

BG04 - Lunazon

Meant to sound similar to "Luzon".

Or maybe it's too close to the real world and needs to be changed to make it sound more distinct from "Luzon".

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)

Mostly going to be similar to that of the Philippines, more specifically Luzon, which has mountains everywhere except for two vertical stretches of land, one of which is between Dagupan and Batangas; of which both are hopefully flat enough to build on.

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

Population will be around 7-ish million. The main city will be Bagong Bandila (Tagalog for "New Banner"); but it is prone to sudden change.

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

First colonized by the Castellanese in 1500s; then occupied for 300 years, followed by Archantan occupation until 1946. Independence was later attained.

Again, this parallels IRL Filipino history.

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.

No examples of natural mapping except maybe the Palapan Forest and the Baratanje Peninsula. Which is why I am requesting BG04 - to build up more natural mapping experience.

Approved. Note that BG territories are for building up experience only, not for long-term mapping. Thanks/wangi (talk) 19:57, 31 July 2023 (UTC)
