Please fill in the information below to make a territory request.
Noun Project Signature icon 619326 cc.svgTerritory ID and proposed name
The Territory ID (from OpenGeofiction:Territories, e.g. AR123a) and proposed name of the country


AR060-11 - East Deodeca (Inspired by South Australia in the greater country of Australia.)

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)


The latitude is similar to Mount Gambier, South Australia. Therefore, the climate will be lush mediterranean with mild winters with a high temp of 10-14°c and a low temp ranging from 4-6°c overnight. During summer, days frequently are over 30°c in the area. The trees will be eucalyptus trees and mallee terrain. The largest city will be similar to Adelaide. There will be no outback mapping unlike the real South Australia, given the fact that it isn't high enough latitude to be in the outback. In this way, most of the terrain will resemble agriculture south of the Goyder's Line, a line meant to demarcate where agriculture is no longer viable that was created in real South Australia.

The largest city is surrounded by small hills, the tallest being 692m above sea level.

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


It's centric on one city with most of the population living there. 75% of the 1,200,000 people in this state will live in the biggest city, with other smaller towns serving as agriculture centers, as that is the main industry with a few mines and industrial parks scattered around rural areas. These will be linked by road to the biggest city, or state capital. In the state, there will only be one rail line which will come from interstate, keeping it realistic to railway infrastructure in Australia, with a few disused old lines that were replaced by road transport mapped out, some of them turning into cycling rail trails and some only being notable by the dirt track aligned with the old train line.

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


60,000 years ago: Ngaringa people arrive

1803: Land surveyed by Ingerish settlers

1806: Largest city founded

1810: Colony declared, it's for free settlers

1830: Copper mining boom about 115km east of the largest city, which forms a town that exists today

1850: Gold discovered in other state (TBD) of Deodeca, mass migration occurs and state tries to keep economy stable as people leave to strike it big.

1901: Largest city hits 100,000 population

1972: Population expected to boom, state government acquires land in order to build a planned city

1983: Projections not as expected, land is sold back with most of it becoming industrial park and the rest becomes (possibly an outdoor mental health retreat, prison or military base).

2010: Population does finally boom, and housing developments occur in a hills town

Today: town bottlenecked by an insufficient freeway, talks of a metro line extension, but overall a bustling (mostly) rural state with a stable economy.


Language is Ingerish (obviously to align with the rest of Deodeca). Our culture is similar to the rest of Deodeca, we do love drinking Harvey's Iced Coffee which is a local brand though and that is our state's patriotism. The state government has a tourism-oriented department as well which encourages people to go on camping trips and enjoy wineries.

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.


Well, I did participate in bad faith and create an Australia style country in the past, though this was poor on my part as I didn't own the territory I developed. I would like to apologise for this.
