These range from trunk roads, to primary, to small two lane rural country roads. Olselen consists of single, double, and triple digit state routes. The Single and Double digit state routes typically connect the cities and predate the FSA's motorway system. The Triple digit state routes are typically auxiliary routes of single or double digit routes and there are very few in the state.

History

The State Of Olselen was originally the Colony of Olselen and first settled by Uleathan Settlers in 1640 on the banks of the Bluegill river. Around 4 years later, a small town and trade port was established and Officially Incorporated as the Town of Prescott named after Captain Arthur William Prescott , a well respected Ingerish Explorer. By 1670, Prescott was without a doubt the largest city in the Olselen Colony with a population of roughly 5,500 people, and a trade route had been constructed to another nearby river settlement 15 miles south off of the Olselen River. This settlement was Praxton after Explorer Harold Praxx, another well respected Ingerish Explorer. It should be noted that both settlements were already relatively inhabited by the Olsel Indigenous tribe who are known for being successful Fisherman, terraformers, and very welcoming and hospitable individuals. Though their settlements were notably to the North of the Bluegill River in present day Anne Abbey and south of the Olselen River in the present day South Suburbs of Praxton.

As increased levels of migration from Uletha prevailed, other cities would be founded throughout Olselen such as Olselen Springs, Cape Stockton, Northwest City, Derry, and Huckleberry Shores.
