The Territory ID (from OpenGeofiction:Territories, e.g. AR123a) and proposed name of the country


AR021 - Oramia (Derived from Latin oram meaning coast - a new, better suited name)

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)


Physical geography is similar to that of Australia's, getting continually more hostile until the border is reached. The coast features lush terrain with snowy mountains (Like Mt. Kosciuzco in Australia) around the capital in the east, though at lower elevation it is quite hot during the summer in that east region. About 60 km from the coast, terrain becomes similar to that of the Mallee. Bushland and scrub along a river become the norm.

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


There will be two large cities, based around colonial trading ports. Then, a smaller capital around the mountains. There is also an outback mining town, and a series of copper mines closer to the coast that are small towns. These will be mostly historic sites. The majority of the population live in cities, now, and the faming industry is dying. Cities are now growing at a rapid rate.

Noun Project languages icon 105908 cc.svgHistory & culture
A brief description of the intended culture and language


Ingerish Colonialists arrived in the area in 1790, and trading was done across multiple ports until a major road was constructed later. The land was travelled across by camels until a majority of settlers ended up settling down in a location. The last 3 people, due to lack of supplies, all died in the harsh climate of World's End, to dehydration. This is why the border was agreed upon at that point, as exploring further was condemned and seen unnecessary. The international highway to other countries would go around this desolate area, through townships and cost of a new road was deemed useless. The country became independent and the borders were made official in 1900. The cities grew into commercial hubs, the second largest attracting many expats who study there, as an education hub and a location for professional development. The other larger city became a trading port that has rail lines throughout the country to mines and many, many towns. The freight rail becomes a very essential part of the nation.

To support your request provide links to areas of OGF mapping which showcase your mapping skill. Mapping relevant to the requested theme & geography is especially useful
The {{coord}} template can optionally be used to link to the OGF map - it results in a nice formatted link. Or you can paste in a URL.


I created Calkarra in The Outback. It is in beginner territories.[1]

Actually, BG30 is in the outback. There is no more to map in this area, except for mapping all of the houses in the town of Calkarra. The rest is arid desert plain, and if you look at any map from outback Australia a lot is left blank outside of the town, because there is nothing to map unless you were to place markers on every scrub and arid tree. All of the other villages are complete, and Smithton is nothing but an old roadhouse. BG30 is a puzzle piece that fits in to AR021, that is absolutely complete and now I need to work on the other parts of the puzzle, the cities and highway network throughout the country.

BG30 has an almost entirely untouched coastline; your territory request for AR021 says you'd like to map a "coast [which] features lush terrain" as well as "colonial trading ports". There's plenty more work for you to do in BG30 before your application for AR021 will be reconsidered. --TheMayor (talk) 02:59, 9 November 2022 (UTC)
That's because the coastline here is imaginary. AR021's coastline is not real, when I import the mapping it will be in the middle of the country. That ocean will be mapped as salt lake in the real thing. Unsigned comment by AustinofOketia (talk).
Please sign your posts, and keep the ordering. Treat BG30 as a collage board, not a literal paste as-is. As it is the mapping in BG30 doesn't sufficiently evidence enough mapping skill for the Outback part, never mind the other environments, which are simply not present at all. /wangi (talk) 14:34, 11 November 2022 (UTC)

While you're off to a good start in BG30, but so far your work in that territory isn't quite enough to warrant a new nation. Please continue working in BG30, and remember that you will be able to move any mapping you wish from BG30 to your next nation. --TheMayor (talk) 21:48, 8 November 2022 (UTC)
To ensure you have enough time to continue working in BG30, you will not be able to reapply for AR021 until 8 Jan 2023.
