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


BG10 - Republic of Erin

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)


In the north will be flat plains, and rivers, with a small town every while. Further down, there will be a mix of grassland and heath. Then, there will be small rolling hills with tree coverage. Far down at the border with BG12 and Eden, there will be bare rocks, and mountains. My idea: https://imgur.com/a/6ibEWeT

Invest - The Noun Project.svgHuman geography
A brief description of the territory demographics, economic development, land occupation, infrastructure and mapping style


The territory will have about 1-2 million people. Nearly all people in the land are Irish, so the mapping style will be similar to Ireland. There will be a large amount of farms in the plains area. In the capital, it will have an 1800's style architecture, while other cities will be less built up.

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


The culture will be heavily based on Irish and (to an extent,) British culture and ideas. The official languages will be English, and "Erinak", a Celtic language, also similar to Irish. The people of Erin will have been people who lived on the island for many years, but settled on this peninsula in the 1800s.

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 have created the town https://opengeofiction.net/#map=15/12.0172/-112.4948 Avonton, but I have also edited in OpenstreetMap for an amount of time. The town is small, but I think with this amount of land I can really learn about OpenGeoFiction.
