AN125, AN133, AN105, AN127 - Vastia (collaborative project)

Noun Project Map icon 1463108.svgPhysical geography
An overview of climate, topography and landscape of the country. It is advised to also create a sketch, you can add a link to this (hosted on imgur or similar)

Vastia is expected to be mostly covered by desert and semi-arid areas (predominantly in AN125), following the regional consensus presented in this image. The remaining territory is expected to include minor tropical (AN127) and subtropical areas (AN133 and AN105). Climatically speaking, we will follow the regional consensus: predominantly BWh and BWk; in a minor extent, BSh, Cfa and Aw/As.

Vastia is also expected to have sections of some of the transcontinental mountain ranges, that will serve as sort of a buffer zone between the arid climates/areas and more humid ones. Due to the predominant position of desert in the country, most of it will be plain, with a maximum height of about 3,500 m.a.s.l.n. Imperator, which is submitting this proposal with me, developed a rough sketch of geography for AN125 on the Arhet website (you can see it here; please ignore the nearby random motorways).

A brief description of the territory demographics, economic development, land occupation, infrastructure and mapping style

As explained in the History and culture section of the application, there will be five major linguistic groups in Vastia: Nizianics, Vastians, Talecians, Corvanish and Regalians. They are expected to be organized into regions, provinces and municipalities. The economy of Vastia is based on mining, petroleum extraction, and diverse manufacturing industries. Most of the territory will be infertile, since it is covered by desert or semi-arid areas. The most fertile areas are on the coast (near Cygagon, Dacategia, Brocéliande and Soboko Republic), and the southeast of the expected country (fundamentally the AN133 territory). The most developed infrastructure will be found in coastal areas, centers where oligarchs reside, and at extraction points; while the rest of the country would have a weak infrastructure, similar to countries in the Maghreb or Latin America.

Therefore, the mapping will be inspired by the previously mentioned areas and some countries in the Middle East, such as Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

A brief description of the intended culture and language

Vastia is expected to be inhabitated by various linguistic groups, as explained in our linguistic map. Most of the languages that are expected to be used in Vastia will be conlangs, including: a mix between Old Spanish and Sicilian-Maltese (Nizianics), mix between Old Spanish and Ohemian (Vastians), mix between Basques and Galicians (Talecians), mix between Corse and Ohemian (Corvanish), Franquese; and mix between Old Spanish, Sardo and Ohemian (Regalians). We are still debating the historical origin of the linguistic groups, but it is likely to be originated by colonization or migration from the homelands of these languages.

The country is expected to be governed through an oligarchic semi-constitutional monarchy, whose head of state, the king, is elected by the High Council (composed of the oligarchic leaders of each province). There is a parliament elected by the people, but it is fundamentally influenced by the High Council and the King of Vastia.
