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

Language: Variation of the Italian language, somewhat influenced by Gallo-italic languages.

Culture and History: Variation of the Italian culture, influenced by proximity of French and Germanic population. Historically part of "Roman Empire" Astria developed during "medieval period" as the alliance of smaller entities (city-states, counties, abbeys etc.) at the crossroads between Plevia, Franqueterre and Pretannia. Important regional identities caused the formation of the country separated from the other greater national states. In the 18th/19th century liberal ideas provoked creation of more cohesive political system which consolidated central government while maintaining strong regional governments.

Details to be developed in collaboration with neighbouring countries.

Glad to have you in the region. My only comment/advice would be to make the linguistic variation extremely noticeable on the map, so make it a point to highlight the historic crossroads and the unique national identity separate from the two big powers next door. — Alessa (talk) 01:00, 13 April 2024 (UTC)
