==Etymology==
==Etymology==
The name "Deodeca" was formed from an anglicization of the word "Odeka". The term came from the First Peoples's name for the Odeka River, the main waterway in central Deodeca which was of significant economic and logistical importance.<ref>Hancock et al. (1954). ''Etymologies of the Dominion of Deodeca and its territories''. Kingstown. Royal Arms Publishing</ref>.

===Pre-Ulethan History===
===Pre-Ulethan History===
The earliest inhabitants of the Deodecan territory were various Native Archantan (or Native Astrasian) groups that prehistorically migrated from North Archanta. These tribes became culturally and physically distinct from other native tribal groups such as ones located in the Federal States and Ardencia. Among the hundreds of tribes, each developed their own unique internal culture and mythologies. Within Deodeca, there were over TBD major groups that formed rudimentary 'tribal empires'. The Tshayhamhash people of Ingerish Asperia once occupied a large empire that covered the northern portion of Ingerish Asperia. With history being passed down through oral history and art, much of today's knowledge is developed from archaeological findings.

==== Early exploration and colonisation ====

[[File:Shee - Queen Adelaide - Royal Collection.jpg|200px|thumb|left|Queen Adelaide, painted in TBD by TBD]]
Following a global wave of colonisation by Ulethan powers, Queen Adelaide of Ingerland heard of bountiful lands to the southeast, across the Asperic Ocean. A year earlier, Franquese explorers had reached a previously unknown land, subsequently named Asperia, and set up a rudimentary settlement in present-day Meridien, Ambrosia. Desiring to beat the Franques to the best land, an extensive colonisation and exploratory fleet set sail from Ingerland on TBD. This fleet consisted of 13 ships and was commanded by TBD. The Ingerish planned to head further north than where the Franques landed. This led them to the Sea of Deodeca, where they made landfall at Port Albert, QAI.

The Ingerish planned to head further north than where the Franques landed. This led them to the Sea of Deodeca, where they made landfall at Port Albert, QAI.
 
The explorers discovered a sheltered harbour and fruitful land. In their report to the Queen, they described a perfect environment for further colonisation. Following further exploration, an even larger fleet set out this time intending to develop a more developed and well-supplied post at Baptist Bay. On arrival, the city of Port Albert was proclaimed and is considered the first officiated city in Deodeca. Early life in Port Albert was pleasant as the surrounding waters and land allowed for plentiful food and resources.

Contact with the Upper Nantee tribe just north of Lamington was the first recorded interaction the Ingerish had with the native peoples of Deodeca. The exchange mainly involved the groups watching each other from a distance, seemingly shocked at either's presence. Among the colonists at Lamington was Dr. Thomas Goodhope, a linguist who specialized in non-Ulethan languages. He had previously been part of expeditions exploring Tarephia and some parts of Antarephia. This gave him a well-informed mindset involving indigenous peoples. This became extremely useful during future encounters, where Lamington developed good relations with neighbouring tribes.
 
Lamington reached a population of 500 residents in 1681. Upon this, the Queen granted the colony governance and in the following year, the colony of Lamington was declared. Once, Queen Adelaide Island was circumnavigated and further towns developed between Lamington and Port Albert, the colony was renamed to Queen Adelaide Island. In 1700, a new settlement was established at Baptist Bay. This was the first settlement formed on the continental mainland. The same year, this colony was named Ingerish Asperia and became the second colony in the region. The naming of Ingerish Asperia related to a feud between the Ingerish and Franquese powers, both looking to claim the Asperia region.
 
In 1705, the Ingerish made landfall at an indigenous settlement known as Ironwood Bay. This settlement happened to be the capital of the indigenous Speshxen Kingdom, a nation that covered the north of the Horn of Deodeca. The natives greeted the foreigners with open arms, and the Ingerish quickly discovered that the Speshxen had an advanced, complex society, a pension for business, and a concept of currency, unlike the majority of tribes in the area. The Ingerish, realising that subjugation of the native kingdom would be unfeasible, instead agreed to recognise the independence of the Speshxen Kingdom.  


The explorers discovered a sheltered harbour and fruitful land. In their report to the Queen, they described a perfect environment for further colonisation. Two years later, an even larger fleet set out, this time intending to develop a more developed and well-supplied post at Hepburn Bay. On arrival, the city of Lamington was proclaimed and is considered the first officiated city in Deodeca. Early life in Lamington was pleasant as the surrounding waters and land allowed for plentiful food and resources.  
In 1709, settlements had been established at New Reydon, Coalburne, and Creswick. This wave of expansion had been fuelled by the extensive migration of Ulethans, driven by the prospects of abundant resources and opportunities in the area. In 1710, The colony of Kastichetshan, Peralia, and Clamash were proclaimed.  


[[File:Hobart Town, taken from the garden where I lived a3891001h.jpg|300px|thumb|right|Painting of Port Albert in TBD]]
In TBD, following the ignition of the feud between Ingerland and Franqueterre, the Ingerish once again returned to the Speshxen Kingdom and declared protectorate status over the nation, preserving the Ingerish claim to the Northern Horn. After this declaration, the Speshxen Kingdom officially became known as the Tshayhamhash Protectorate. In the coming decades, the Speshxen pension for business came to a head, with the kingdom agreeing to monetary deals that ceded most of their land to the Ingerish and the Colony of Ingerish Asperia, until it was decreed by Speshxen law that further land sales were to be prohibited.

He had previously been part of expeditions exploring Tarephia and some parts of Antarephia. This gave him a well-informed mindset involving indigenous peoples. This became extremely useful during future encounters, where Lamington developed good relations with neighbouring tribes.  
In 1724, explorers undertook a huge overland journey, aiming to survey the interior of the land east of the Great Shield Mountains. This led them to discover Lake Amanceer and Lake Beautouis. Recognising the strategic importance of the location, a settlement named Kingstown (after the then-King TBD), was founded and formed the colony of Agawaskway.  


Lamington reached a population of 500 residents in TBD. Upon this, the Queen granted the colony governance and in TBD, the colony of Lamington was declared. In TBD, a new settlement was established at Ingerfort. This was the first settlement formed on the continental mainland. Explorers had surveyed the coastline from Westcott all the way to Lamington. Once Queen Adelaide Island was circumnavigated and further towns developed between Lamington and Port Albert, the colony was renamed to Queen Adelaide Island.  
At this point, the largest city was Lamington which served as the unofficial capital and hub of the colonies in the region. Although the colonies were all independent of each other, their desires to unite were strong early on.

==== War of Clamash ====


In TBD, explorers undertook a huge overland journey, aiming to survey the interior of the land east of the Great Shield Mountains. This led them to discover Lake Amanceer and Lake Beautouis. Recognising the strategic importance of the location, a settlement named Kingstown (after the then-King TBD), was founded and formed the colony of Agawaskway.  
Castalleanese colonization to the north and proximity to the Deodecan colonies prompted the Ingerish to claim the southernmost of Castallean's claims. This included the port of San Ramon in present day Clamash. The Ingerish blockaded the port, aiming to tire out the settlers without any violence. A Castellanese frigate arrived and a standoff ensued. Luckily, no engagement occured and the Ingerish fleet allowed the frigate to pass and transfer the settlers to another Castellanese settlement. This in turn was deemed an Ingerish victory and Clamash was declared a new colony, following the founding of the city of Wahanta along the Henrietta River estuary. As per the Treaty of San Ramon, Castellan ceded all territory claims in present-day Clamash with the exception of San Ramon.


At this point, the largest city was Lamington and served as the unofficial capital and hub of the colonies in the region. Although the colonies were all independent of each other, desires to unite were strong early on.

*INSERT BRIEF FSA HISTORY*
*INSERT BRIEF FSA HISTORY*


In TBD, The colonies of Deodeca united and the Deodecan Federation was proclaimed.  
In TBD, The colonies of Deodeca united and the Deodecan Federation was proclaimed with the exception of the Tshayhamhash Protectorate, then a separate legal entity under Ingerish sovereignty.  


Due to the rapid industrialization and economic growth of the FSA, pressures within the Province of Clamash grew. Separatist movements grew extremely popular in the 1830s, mainly due to the perceived benefit to the Clamashigan economy by joining the States. In 1842, recognising the value of the province to the Federal States, the FS Congress made an offer of $TBD to purchase the province and allow it to be admitted in the States. The Deodecan parliament accepted the offer and Clamash officially ceded and joined the FSA as a territory. In 1866, The Clamash territory officially became the latest state. After this, the Deodecan constitution was amended to make further secession from the federation extremely difficult.

===Modern History===
===Modern History===
In TBD, prior to the Great War in attempts to avoid being used as an unwilling base for opposing powers, the Tshayhamhash Protectorate petitioned the Deodecan government to admit the protectorate as a separate, new province. After months of strained talks and compromises, the protectorate was admitted as an autonomous region of Deodeca, known as the Tshayhamhash Governorate.


==Geography==
==Geography==
Deodeca has vast and varied geography that covers a large portion of western Astrasia. Deodeca has extensive maritime borders that extend into the "Sea of Deodeca" and some of the Grand Lakes (Lake Amanecer and Lake Betaouais), giving it a large EEZ.
===Climate===
===Climate===
Northern Deodeca sits mainly within the ''Cfa'' and ''Cfb'' climate ranges in the north. These provinces are most susceptible to thunderstorms and strong ocean winds. [[Ingerish Asperia]]'s western coast is most prone to these seaborne storms and breezes due to its position on the Asperic northward current, and is the wettest part of the country. Areas east of (insert name of mountain range), such as eastern Ingerish Asperia and Kastichetshan, receive lower precipitation due to the rain shadow.
As for Southern Deodeca, its distance from the ocean guarantees a mostly continental climate (primarily Dfa and Dfb). However, the number of large lakes allows for a more humid climate in these regions, further enabling the lush temperate to boreal forests that dominate the southern half of the country. Lake-effect snowfall is especially high on eastern shores of Lake Ouanatchkan, as well as in limited amounts along lakes Betaouais and Amanecer.
===Hydrology===
===Hydrology===
Deodeca's abundance of water resources is due to its density of water networks. Deodeca has over 200 major rivers. Major rivers include [[Ingerish Asperia]]'s River Agnes and Umbra River, [[Peralia]]'s Jersey River, [[Agawaskway]]'s Frontenac River, Ouanatchkan's Edrange River, and above all, the Odeka River, which bisects the entire nation. The lakes of Deodeca are an important resource, both economically and environmentally. Lake Ouanatchkan, Lake Betaouais, and Lake Amanecer are among the most important and largest lakes in Deodeca. These contribute to inland Deodeca's moderated climate and provide water resources for humans and the environment.

Deodeca, officially the Commonwealth of Deodeca is a sovereign country in southern Archanta. It is a federation consisting of sixteen provinces and two federal territories that span 721,488 km² (278,568 sq mi), making it one of the largest countries in the world. It borders Ardencia and the Federal States to the east and southeast, and Ambrosia to the southwest. The capital is Stradworth, and its largest city is Kingstown. The Ambrosian exclave of Upper Crown (Haute Couronne) sits between the Deodecan provinces of Wirramay and Newcambry. Deodeca is a member of the Ingerish Commonwealth, having gained independence from Ingerland in 1905. It is also a member of the Assembly of Nations. Deodeca is a highly developed country, excelling in areas such as education, life expectancy, and social inclusion. It is a hub for technology, financial, business, and research industries, with several related companies being headquartered in the country.


Etymology

The name "Deodeca" was formed from an anglicization of the word "Odeka". The term came from the First Peoples's name for the Odeka River, the main waterway in central Deodeca which was of significant economic and logistical importance.[1].

Pre-Ulethan History

The earliest inhabitants of the Deodecan territory were various Native Archantan (or Native Astrasian) groups that prehistorically migrated from North Archanta. These tribes became culturally and physically distinct from other native tribal groups such as ones located in the Federal States and Ardencia. Among the hundreds of tribes, each developed their own unique internal culture and mythologies. Within Deodeca, there were over TBD major groups that formed rudimentary 'tribal empires'. The Tshayhamhash people of Ingerish Asperia once occupied a large empire that covered the northern portion of Ingerish Asperia. With history being passed down through oral history and art, much of today's knowledge is developed from archaeological findings.

An early Indigenous art piece, c. 1450, now located at the National Indigenous Museum in Stradworth.

Native groups have been retrospectively grouped by geographic area to a total of six groupings. The North Horn First Nations (Ingerish Asperia and Katichtishan), Central Prairie First Nations (Central Deodeca), Northeast First Nations (Peralia and part of -11), Island First Nations (Queen Adelaide Island), Lake First Nations (Nawagan and Agawaskway) and Alpine First Nations (Ateria and Ouanatchkan). These groupings refer to individual tribes that shared somewhat common cultural traits with each other.

Native peoples largely lived off the land and commonly hunted bison, deer, rodents, and occasionally birds. Fishing was also very common and Ulethan explorers described very advanced fishing techniques and technologies developed by some tribes. Tribes usually lived along rivers or near water areas. Canoes and boats were constructed using bison or deer hide and were used for transportation and fishing.

There were sometimes conflicts between groups and native oral history describes a particular long and bloody war between TBD and TBD some TBD years ago. Interactions with groups outside of the Deodecan region were rare, mainly due to natural barriers. Some trading was done by lake tribes, as boats allowed for easy access across the lake. The Queen Adelaide Island tribes remained largely isolated from the greater landmass for hundreds of years and developed a distinctly unique cultural and spirituality.

For thousands of years, the indigenous groups occupied the land without any interaction with Ulethan peoples.

Deodecan Colonies

Early exploration and colonisation

Queen Adelaide, painted in TBD by TBD

Following a global wave of colonisation by Ulethan powers, Queen Adelaide of Ingerland heard of bountiful lands to the southeast, across the Asperic Ocean. A year earlier, Franquese explorers had reached a previously unknown land, subsequently named Asperia, and set up a rudimentary settlement in present-day Meridien, Ambrosia. Desiring to beat the Franques to the best land, an extensive colonisation and exploratory fleet set sail from Ingerland on 1677. This fleet consisted of 13 ships and was commanded by TBD. The Ingerish planned to head further north than where the Franques landed. This led them to the Sea of Deodeca, where they made landfall at Port Albert, QAI.

The explorers discovered a sheltered harbour and fruitful land. In their report to the Queen, they described a perfect environment for further colonisation. Following further exploration, an even larger fleet set out this time intending to develop a more developed and well-supplied post at Baptist Bay. On arrival, the city of Port Albert was proclaimed and is considered the first officiated city in Deodeca. Early life in Port Albert was pleasant as the surrounding waters and land allowed for plentiful food and resources.

Painting of Port Albert in 1685

Contact with the Upper Nantee tribe just north of Lamington was the first recorded interaction the Ingerish had with the native peoples of Deodeca. The exchange mainly involved the groups watching each other from a distance, seemingly shocked at either's presence. Among the colonists at Lamington was Dr. Thomas Goodhope, a linguist who specialized in non-Ulethan languages. He had previously been part of expeditions exploring Tarephia and some parts of Antarephia. This gave him a well-informed mindset involving indigenous peoples. This became extremely useful during future encounters, where Lamington developed good relations with neighbouring tribes.

Lamington reached a population of 500 residents in 1681. Upon this, the Queen granted the colony governance and in the following year, the colony of Lamington was declared. Once, Queen Adelaide Island was circumnavigated and further towns developed between Lamington and Port Albert, the colony was renamed to Queen Adelaide Island. In 1700, a new settlement was established at Baptist Bay. This was the first settlement formed on the continental mainland. The same year, this colony was named Ingerish Asperia and became the second colony in the region. The naming of Ingerish Asperia related to a feud between the Ingerish and Franquese powers, both looking to claim the Asperia region.

In 1705, the Ingerish made landfall at an indigenous settlement known as Ironwood Bay. This settlement happened to be the capital of the indigenous Speshxen Kingdom, a nation that covered the north of the Horn of Deodeca. The natives greeted the foreigners with open arms, and the Ingerish quickly discovered that the Speshxen had an advanced, complex society, a pension for business, and a concept of currency, unlike the majority of tribes in the area. The Ingerish, realising that subjugation of the native kingdom would be unfeasible, instead agreed to recognise the independence of the Speshxen Kingdom.

In 1709, settlements had been established at New Reydon, Coalburne, and Creswick. This wave of expansion had been fuelled by the extensive migration of Ulethans, driven by the prospects of abundant resources and opportunities in the area. In 1710, The colony of Kastichetshan, Peralia, and Clamash were proclaimed.

In TBD, following the ignition of the feud between Ingerland and Franqueterre, the Ingerish once again returned to the Speshxen Kingdom and declared protectorate status over the nation, preserving the Ingerish claim to the Northern Horn. After this declaration, the Speshxen Kingdom officially became known as the Tshayhamhash Protectorate. In the coming decades, the Speshxen pension for business came to a head, with the kingdom agreeing to monetary deals that ceded most of their land to the Ingerish and the Colony of Ingerish Asperia, until it was decreed by Speshxen law that further land sales were to be prohibited.

In 1724, explorers undertook a huge overland journey, aiming to survey the interior of the land east of the Great Shield Mountains. This led them to discover Lake Amanceer and Lake Beautouis. Recognising the strategic importance of the location, a settlement named Kingstown (after the then-King TBD), was founded and formed the colony of Agawaskway.

At this point, the largest city was Lamington which served as the unofficial capital and hub of the colonies in the region. Although the colonies were all independent of each other, their desires to unite were strong early on.

War of Clamash

Castalleanese colonization to the north and proximity to the Deodecan colonies prompted the Ingerish to claim the southernmost of Castallean's claims. This included the port of San Ramon in present day Clamash. The Ingerish blockaded the port, aiming to tire out the settlers without any violence. A Castellanese frigate arrived and a standoff ensued. Luckily, no engagement occured and the Ingerish fleet allowed the frigate to pass and transfer the settlers to another Castellanese settlement. This in turn was deemed an Ingerish victory and Clamash was declared a new colony, following the founding of the city of Wahanta along the Henrietta River estuary. As per the Treaty of San Ramon, Castellan ceded all territory claims in present-day Clamash with the exception of San Ramon.

Unionification

Clamash Purchase

Soon after the colonization of Deodeca, Ingerish exploration led them around the Astrasian continent and to the eastern coast. Due to the distance, this area was from most Ulethan powers, it remained largely unexplored and unnoticed. This allowed for the Ingerish to stake their claim without any interference from rival powers.

  • INSERT BRIEF FSA HISTORY*

In TBD, The colonies of Deodeca united and the Deodecan Federation was proclaimed with the exception of the Tshayhamhash Protectorate, then a separate legal entity under Ingerish sovereignty.

Due to the rapid industrialization and economic growth of the FSA, pressures within the Province of Clamash grew. Separatist movements grew extremely popular in the 1830s, mainly due to the perceived benefit to the Clamashigan economy by joining the States. In 1842, recognising the value of the province to the Federal States, the FS Congress made an offer of $TBD to purchase the province and allow it to be admitted in the States. The Deodecan parliament accepted the offer and Clamash officially ceded and joined the FSA as a territory. In 1866, The Clamash territory officially became the latest state. After this, the Deodecan constitution was amended to make further secession from the federation extremely difficult.

Modern History

In TBD, prior to the Great War in attempts to avoid being used as an unwilling base for opposing powers, the Tshayhamhash Protectorate petitioned the Deodecan government to admit the protectorate as a separate, new province. After months of strained talks and compromises, the protectorate was admitted as an autonomous region of Deodeca, known as the Tshayhamhash Governorate.
