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)

Taharka is a tropical island nation consisting of a primarily flat topography near the coasts, with some rolling hills and a small mountain range (reaching 1000 or so meters (3500-ish feet) in height) inland. The national landscape is generally grassy with heavily forested regions inland as well as some arid portions in the hills. Toward the coasts the soil is sandy, but in the forested regions it is rich and some land has been cleared for agriculture.

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

The Taharkan population is concentrated predominantly toward the coast, however, a number of primarily agricultural municipalities do exist in the hill region, and a handful of towns and resorts exist in the mountainous area as well. Linguistically speaking, Taharkans mostly speak Ingerish, however, pockets exist in which Castellanese is the local dialect. The economy in the coastal regions is primarily tourism-based, however, there is fishing that takes place in these regions as well as some manufacturing in the inland portions of the coastal region. The hill country is primarily agricultural, again with some manufacturing sprinkled in, and the mountainous area is the most economically diverse.

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

Intended language is described above. Culture will resemble that of the US with regional differences according to topography. For instance, the mountainous region will be a conglomeration of the Appalachian and Rocky Mountain regions, and the coasts will hold aspects of the Gulf Coast as well as various coastal cities around the US.

Feather-core-check-square.svg Territory application approved
Approved, keep in mind that beginner territories are for building up experience, to evidence a full territory application later, and not for long term-mapping, thanks/wangi (talk) 16:08, 30 November 2022 (UTC)
