This is the official forum for Deodeca, a state-based collaborative project in South Archanta. Located adjacent to the Federal States and Ardencia, Deodeca is a temperate, first-world Commonwealth-inspired nation on the Asperic coast of Archanta.
Unlike previous iterations of Deodeca that failed to gain traction with the community, the new Deodeca project is intended to be an English-speaking counterbalance to the Federal States project, for modern English-language mapping that is not American-inspired. Tentative history for the nation is based on Ingerish colonists settling Deodeca slightly before circumnavigating Astrasia and establishing settlements in what is now the southeastern Federal States. The two sets of colonies followed relatively similar trajectories; however, when the Ingerish colonists in the Federal States rebelled and declared their independence, the Deodecan colonies remained loyal to the Crown. As a result of this divergence, the Federal States became a more militaristic nation that aggressively expanded through other colonial claims in Astrasia while the Deodecans remained more peaceful, focusing more on domestic and international trade than expansion.
As time went on, the Deodecans and the Federal States grew to have stronger diplomatic relations, culminating with the Federal States purchasing a portion of Deodeca (Clamash) to complete a transcontinental railroad in the mid- to late-1800s.
|1||Defaced Ingerish Red Ensign with the badge of colonial Deodeca (or its then Ingerish Something name). Ratio (1:2) and colours are based on the traditional British colonial flags. The 6-point star is influenced by flags from neighbouring Ambrosia with the idea that the star may have some cultural significance in the Southern Hemisphere or this region of Archanta. This rather basic sketch is inspired by pre-1965 Canada where, unlike most other British Colonies, the Red Ensign and not the Blue Ensign was the main flag to fly. --Aiki (talk) 10:13, 28 April 2022 (UTC)|
|2||Defaced Ingerish Red and Blue Ensign (two primary colours of Deodeca). Similarly to Aiki's proposal, the six-point star is meant to be a symbol of the region (as it is present in Ambrosian and Lutecian culture). The insignia is based on some elements of Deodeca, such as the national flower, national crop, and the crown linking it to Ingerland. (This flag can also potentially work as the flag of Ingerish Asperia)|
