Alormen is a state in the North Central region of the Federal States of Archanta. It is the largest F.S. state by area and the only state that has a coastline on the Gulf of Archanta. Alormen shares borders with the states of Tierra Alta to the west, Tejoma to the southwest, West Massodeya to the south, East Massodeya to the southeast and an international border with Randalia to the east. The state's capital is Alamar, and it's largest city is Andreapolis.

Etymology

The name Alormen comes from a Latin root word, calor, meaning heat. During the 15th and 16th centuries Castellanese missionaries referred to the Gulf of Archanta as the Mare Calermenones, loosely rendered as "the sea that appears to be warm". Over time the name crossed into Ingerish as Calormenan and finally settled as Alormen during the mid-1800s.

Climate

Alormen is dominated by a humid sub-tropical climate that extends inland from the gulf coast for several hundred miles. It is characterized by hot humid summers with mean temperatures between 75-81°F and short, cold to mild winters of between 50-61°F. In the west of the state where elevation increases the climate become progressively more arid and cold.

History

Native Archantians

Archeological sites along the Garnet River indicate the area was inhabited from as early as 6000 BCE. Prior to contact was Castellanese explorers in the 1540s and 50s several tribes from the Indigenous Coastal Group, including the 'White' Pashaw and Toskanee, lived in region.

Early Settlements

Fort Dare was established in 1817 to repress native raids on colonists in the region. During the 1820s and 30s some 200 families from the east settled in the area, mainly on land close to Fort Dare and the Sakomache Military Road. In 1831 Paul Morrison Moore purchased land rights to 1000 acres between the Garnet and the Rosanash Rivers, including the future site of Coldrey, the county seat. He established a livestock business, built houses for his workforce and opened a store there. Within a few years a small community had been established and in February 1834 Moore hired a retired civil engineer from Stanton, John McCandless, to lay out the core of the town.

In September 1836 he established the first school in the county and in March the following year he successfully lobbied the state legislature to formally organise Rushe County. Rushe County was formed on March 21, 1837 and expanded on July 9, 1848 with land taken from surrounding counties. Coldrey was the county seat and the county authority erected the first permanent courthouse there in 1851.
