Ingerish Asperia (abbreviated as IA and also known as Asperia) (Tshayhamhash:Speshxen/spə́ɬx̣ən) is the northernmost constituent province within the Commonwealth of Deodeca. Ingerish Asperia features a very diverse geography and hydrography, mainly due to its extensive coastline. It features high-alpine mountains, subtropical wet forests, rolling plains, and temperate forests. Asperia is one of the most populated provinces, with 10.1 million people, most of them being within the three major metropolitan areas. Namely, these are New Reydon, Baptist Bay, and Stonesipher. Ingerish Asperia shares land borders with the province of Kastichetshan to the south and an international border to the west with TBD.

The capital, New Reydon, is rooted in its rich educational and cultural institutions: it is often referred to as the "Scholar Capital". Baptist Bay and the largest city, Stonesipher, both share similar histories as important naval and shipping centers.

The Colony was named Ingerish Asperia was named by Queen Charlotte in 1700. The name "Asperia" refers to the historic Ulethan name for the southwest coast of Astrasia (itself taken from the Asperic Ocean). The prefix "Ingerish" was added to differentiate it from extensive Franquese claims to the south.[1]



Several nomadic tribespeople established themselves in the area, having migrated north from the central plains. Over time, these tribespeople seperated, through geography and internal divisions, and formed seperate distinct groups. These peoples developed strong and unique connections to the land.

Before the colonization of Asperia, the land was inhabited by several indigenous tribes such as the Tshayhamhash, Squamish, and other tribes of the North First Nations, a group of aboriginals native to Ingerish Asperia and Kastichetshan. These tribes had their own unique cultures, traditions, and languages, but they all shared a deep respect for the natural world.[2]

These indigenous peoples developed their culture around the unique landscapes of the area. Moose and deer skin were used for clothing, tents, and for canoes. The many riverways of Asperia were utilized through canoes, allowing indigenous peoples to travel with relative speed. The abudance of resources and wildlife provided plentiful resources for indigenous peoples - their culture developed around the notion of sustainable hunting practices, with specific times during the year to hunt and animal numbers monitored.

Music, art, and food became strong cultural elements that developed over time. Music often included vocalizations and beats played with sticks hit upon a carved log instrument. Many of these peoples used music as a method of conveying stories and folklore. Art was used through woodcarving, painting, and skin tattoos to display tribal pride, identity, and shared history. Food such as berries, fish, meat, and starchy vegetables were used to make rudimentary dishes that were tied to the natural environment. Pottery and claymaking were also important for practical purposes but also for artwork.
