Introduction to newcomers

Hello! Welcome to OpenGeoFiction. OGF is a collaborative platform for creating fictional maps. OpenGeofiction's dynamic community of hobbyists comes from a wide range of backgrounds, cultures, occupations, and ages. We are a community of mappers that uses our knowledge, experience, and imagination to craft a fictional world, set in modern times and with an emphasis on realism. Our world is not a planet with fantastical or science-fiction elements, like orcs, elves, or aliens. Rather, it features power plants, motorways, and housing projects juxtaposed with picturesque old towns, beautiful national parks, and lonely beaches.

Most of the website's documention is in English. Click here for the site policies and getting started. If you don't feel uncomfortable using English, it can be translated easily using services such as Deepl, Google Translate or others. You can comment on this thread or write messages in Japanese! Other users will translate it and answer in their own language. To register a wiki account, first register for OGF here and then send a message to the admin-team.

In this forum-thread, we want to plan a collaborative project. In a collab, several members work together on one country. We want to create a fictional Japanese speaking country in this location. However we currently have only very few members who speak good Japanese. If you speak Japanese and are interested in participating in this project, comment below.

Project outline

The new Japanese themed country (UL30c) has no name yet. The purpose of this thread is not (yet) to start the actual collab! We would first like to foster some general discussion and estimate if there are sufficiently many interested members in the community. For the collab to eventually start, ideally at least the following number of members should be interested to investing a substantial amount of their mapping activity:

  • three active mappers
  • one of them being (near) native in Japanese
  • two of them with substantial high-quality mapping experience
  • two of them with not more than one other major active territory

UL30c has been chosen as the location for a Japanese homeland, because it lies between south-east Uletha (a region with many countries that use conlangs partially inspired by Japanese) and northern Archanta (the Chinese speaking homeland from where Chinese characters could have spread to East Uletha similar to what happened in real-world Japan). It is situated in a slightly more tropical climate than real-world Japan and is smaller in total area. Like real-world Japan it is a very maritime country. The current sketch of UL30c is only a starting point for discussion and may be modified by the members of the collab later.

Questions for discussion

In this thread, we want to discuss the following topics:

  • Q1: Who would be extremely - very - a little interested in being part of the collaboration?
  • Q2: What could the country's name be?
  • Q3: In what ways would or should UL30c explicitly be different than real-world Japan?
    • Needed to be the same: language, religion...
    • Possibly different: society, economy, government, infrastructure...
    • Definitely different: climate, size...
  • Q4: How should the collab be organized?
    • There will be a special need for cooperation among the members to ensure language consistency.
  • Q5: How could we reach (more) native Japanese people with experience in fictional mapping?

Q1 (Interested mappers)

Izaland Terramorphing Committee.

Since I already own as the main country Izaland, and I am the coordinator for the Plevia project, I wouldn't have enough energies and time to map extensively in this new country. However, I would like to be able to take part to all the crucial decisions about the country, and considering that I am proficient in Japanese, act as a supervisor / communications helper between the potential users and the OGF community /neigboor countries.--Izaland Terramorphing Committee (talk) 14:15, 10 December 2022 (UTC)


Well me and Izaland has been working together to recruit Japanese mappers. Similarily I also don't have the time to map extensively here but I can help deal with the logistics of the language barrier (much like how I'm dealing with Huaxia) Kengoman (talk) 13:09, 25 January 2023 (UTC)


hewwo there (≧▽≦)/ ik I may not be able to get involved at times due to rl but still I'm pretty interested in decisionmaking for this collab and also find it a perfect opportunity to get better at my mapping skills during whatever free time I've got (つ≧▽≦)つ (btw I'm currently learning Japanese at some level between beginner and intermediate so there you go ヾ(・ω・*)) Mikumikumapper (talk) 10:35, 25 January 2023 (UTC)

Q2 (Country name)

watashino suggestion:

  • Tsukiriku (Japanese name in romaji)
  • 月陸 (Japanese name in kanji)
  • つきおか (Japanese name in hiragana)
  • "land of the moon" (literal meaning of the Japanese name)
  • Yuerluvia (English name derived from the Mandarin pronunciation of 月陸 - yue-lu - and the -ia suffix)

it's similar to how RW Japan got its English name from yat-bun which is the Cantonese way of saying 日本 (which in Japanese pronunciation would be nihon) so... you get the idea (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ Mikumikumapper (talk) 10:35, 25 January 2023 (UTC)

Q3 (Differences to RW Japan)

Just thought of sharing my thoughts on how different this Japan could be. I'm imagining a less urbanised Japan. Perhaps much less rich than the Japan we know of. The capital and major port could be the more affluent parts of the country, while the rest is less developed. But I doubt the Japanese mappers might be very keen on this idea, given it will be rather unimaginable of a poorer Japan. A Japan that might have industrialised late. --Zhenkang (talk) 09:40, 11 December 2022 (UTC)


yeah reading this I was pretty much thinking this should be a less affluent country than RW Japan so I surmise it could be more of a newly industrialized economy (o^ ^o) Mikumikumapper (talk) 12:23, 25 January 2023 (UTC)

Guys keep in mind that this project will not succeed without the Japanese mappers who will map them (and who we are actively trying to recruit irl in actual Japan), so it would have to be a suggestion that they will be cool with. Now in terms of late industrialization, "Early Showa Era Japan" is a theme that everyone is interested in, and moreso "Before the war early Showa Era Japan" so it could be a setup similar to that. Kengoman (talk) 13:09, 25 January 2023 (UTC)

Q4 (Collab organisation)


Q5 (Outreach)

so I was thinking as part of outreach why not promote this project on social media by targeting our promo towards people living in Japan who're interested in maps and worldbuilding and stuff like that? also I have some Japanese friends at my high school that I could promote this to so... you get the idea (◕‿◕)♡ Mikumikumapper (talk) 13:25, 25 January 2023 (UTC)
