I’m Le Mathou from Lorredion. I have been creating maps with passion since 2015 in the AR015 territory. I don’t have enough time to take care of my AR015 territory anymore due to my recent job change. Therefore, with great regret and after careful consideration, I would like to return this territory to the community so that others can continue mapping it. However, I would like to continue mapping a smaller territory with the time I have left. I was considering this island.

  • Thank you for your application. Your past mapping qualifies you for this additional, small territory, even in addition to Lorredion. Before approving your request, just a few clarifications: could you provide a rought sketch of your preliminary plan for the country, and a very rough and preliminary population estimate? Also, any thoughts about the type of native population and/or from where the colonial power came and when? Cheers, Leowezy (talk) 12:37, 9 March 2023 (UTC)

      Thank you for your message, Leowezy! Yes, here is a very simple sketch of what I would like to do with this territory. The main island would be fairly populated around the capital and along some coasts that would also be very touristy. The rest of the island would be more natural, with plantations, forests, and a volcanic chain in an arc shape. There would also be a lagoon to the south. As for the population, I think it would be reasonable not to exceed 300,000 inhabitants for the entire group of islands.For the type of population, I was thinking of a former colony that had gained its independence, so it would be quite mixed between native people and settlers. As for Lorredion, unfortunately, I will no longer have the time to take care of it as before, which is why I want to start a new country that I would like to finish. This new territory would not be related to Lorredion. In fact, I leave it to you to determine the future of Lorredion, do what you think is best. Best regards.
