Silland is a union of countries in Arctic Uletha stretching from 60.3°N to 79.5°N at the northernmost point of land in the world.


Prior to 1000 CE

The first archaological evidence of humans in present day Silland are refered to as the 'carved horn' culture which migrated in from the southeast ca. 5500BCE following the receding ice sheets, they were a hunter gatherer people with cultural practices of carving intricate patterns into horns of reindeer, moose and stag as well as tusks of mammoth and later walrus. This culture was migratory in nature and mostly followed the herds of fauna along receding edges of the Idiacric ice sheet and Brennic ice sheet. At some point during the 4000BCE-3000BCE millenium, the society gradually seem to have shifted towards a herding lifestyle as opposed to a hunting one. A notable split in the culture happened around 2500 BCE where some members of the culture opted to remain along the coasts and inlets of the Jama bay. This split often mark the start of the Proto-Sillimi culture and Proto-Áardic cultures respectively. The latter group quickly spread along the coasts of the Great north sea where the former slowly spread out over the newly uncovered lands which would eventually turning into the Sillimi Taiga. A further split in cultures happened around 700CE where a branch of the Proto-Áardic group returned to the herding culture in present day Četket, and are believed to have hunted the last of the wooly mammoths to extinction.

1000-1200 CE

Around 1000CE the southern parts of present day Kresy Zielone had gotten temperate enough for some of the Lechian peoples to settle in the valleys, marking the first permanent settlements in Silland, as in much of Lechia itself, the Sillimi peoples mostly assimilated to or lived around the Agricultural settlements. Arceological evidence mostly point towards peaceful cohabitation and trade, but some evidence of violence do occur even if we do not have any written accounts of either. The first mention of the Sillimi tribes come in the form of Christic texts which describe the Sillimi peoples as pagan wastelanders of the far north, some early attempts at conversion of the natives to christicism occured but seem to have had only slow influence in the area. Later accounts suggest that the first Nordmenni arrived in present day Svennia around 1100CE following the large western rivers. These mostly came in two waves, namely the Svennish and the Läxians, settling primarily along the coasts of Lake Paivat and Lake Rusan. While some of the native population willfully assimilated into these societies, others seem to have been forcefully taken as slaves or chased into the forests. The Nordmenni were significantly less concerned about the pagan beliefs of the natives and even adopted many of the beliefs themselves.

1200-1500 CE

The settlement of present day Silland mostly continued slowly up until the 1200s where in 1221, a Kalmish noble family called Torschau-Waldschild following their exile settled in the Brennic mountains on the shores of Lake Eltzer, building several forts in the area, while first attempting to exterminate the local popolus, they quickly learnt how to co-exist with the Sillimi peoples and soon founded the country of Thürschen, which quickly rose to prominence in the area for its trade in precious furs and horns from their trade with the Sillimi. The kalmish people eventually left many of their christic practices and adopted more and more of the Luondosku tradition. Albeit keeping their christic faith officially up to the 1700s. Capitalising on this, one tribe refered to as the Gauli, learning from the Thürschic formed their own agricultural settlements, marking the first sedentary sillimi culture. This later became known as Luoni and came to serve as a mediator between the christic southerners and nomadic sillimi peoples.


The Kingdom of Lechia waged several wars on the kingdom of Luoni, citing religious heresy and claiming more and more land. Lechian colonialism and the founding of the eastern cities of Litszvat, Jama and more as colonial centers of power, attempted conversion goes slowly. The christic plan referred to as 'the night of fire' where many of the Luondosku holy sites were to be burnt, said to invoke the 'wrath of god' this horribly backfired as the christics underestimated the speed at which the nomadic peoples could spread news. The christics were regarded as a true evil, and many had heard of the evils of the christic monks before they had ever even seen a Lechian. This led to massive scepticism of the already weak regional church, most churches were demolished and the Loundosku religion gained a significantly stronger hold. The Lechian colonies remained, but eventually became to expensive to maintain as Lechia started seeking colonial ventures elsewhere.


Southern explorers encounter the Četket and Áardic peoples and map some of the northern coasts of Silland. Attempts are made to find a sea-route out of the great north sea, many perish, a 'northeastern passage' is eventually found by a Geklinian sailor by travelling north of Sapvoudma into the Ardentic ocean. Jiemie and Jåhkja are established as true countries and given some international recognition.


The Svennish migrations see svennish people who do not wish to travel overseas mass migrating into Sillandic Svennia. Most of the previously uncontacted tribes of Četket, Jappnatjahk and Suuleå. Nordlandic expanse see the conquering of the westernmost Sillimi cultures.


Slow development, small conflicts with Lechia, continued northward exploration

Arctic war 1966-1968

Nordurland continues its eastward expansion and invades Läxland who quickly surrender the vast majority of its territory by area, however, the natives put up a surprising resistance, declaring independence as Suuleå during the war. As a cry to help their cultural kin and due to fear of them being next, Jiemias, Jåhkja and Svennia join in the war and help fortify the line for the coming thaw. Meanwhile, the Nordurlandic fleet, attempting to circumnavigate the peninsula and attack by sea are stuck in the ice in Northern Oarjeaardiqqut and unable to recieve supplies. The crew settle in for the long haul and ration their supplies as the assumed short excursion turns into months. The coalition of the newly formed country of Suuleå and its new allies manage to miracolously fend of the surprised Nordurlandic advance, Suuleå loses much territory but holds As winter of 1967-68 comes early. The defendants form the Mahnja line along the line of natural lakes and mountains as Nordurland brings in its much larger armed force. The Mahnja lines miraculously holds as the natives employ guerilla tactics, hiding in the snow, weakening the ice in strategic places and demolishing the bridges. The nordurlandic advance gets stuck in the snow and casualies rise quickly on the Nordurlandic side. The smaller countries of Luoni and Thürschen join in the defence in March and April of 68 respectively. In the Arctic sea, the fleet has remained stuck for over a year as one of the coldest years in modern history see an entire summer without thwing sea ice. Much of the crew starve to death and a few survivors are given refuge by the native Áardic people. during the summer of 1968, almost no advancements are made and the attrition hits Nordurland who sue for peace in September of 1968, as the first snow begins to fall. Ending in massive losses for Nordurland with only miniscule territorial gains. The war gained a lot of attention globally as the large fascist regime of Nordurland was stopped, serving as a massive embarrasment to the regime, and eventually leading to the formation of the present day democratic Nordurland. The alliance of the defendants remained and eventually formed the union of Silland based on collective strength and economy while ensuring the local persistance of the different cultures and economies.

After the war, what remained of Áardeaqni Joined the union in 1972.

Ledzian decline

In 1974, The country of Ledzia which gained its independence from Lechia in the 1800s weakens under pressure from Lechia to surrender the breakaway region of Nadgliwi. This led to increased discourse as the region also had a large ethnic sillimi population. This eventually ended in Ledzia breaking into 4 parts, Nadgliwi being ceded to Lechia as an autonomous region, Gubernia gaining local autonomy within Ledzia and Kresy Zielone gaining independence as its own country as the rest remained as modern day Ledzia. Much of this was settled peacefully by voting and democratic reasoning and marks one of few cases where this has happened. Kresy Zielone was later under pressure to integrate into Lechia instead, leading to yet another democratic conversion where the country became part of the Sillandic union, with its Sillimi and Lechian populations gaining cultural and military protection.

Modern reform

As Četket joined the union formally in 1980 reforms started happening and the system of equal representation was remodelled. Áardeaqni, was given self governing status without the need to partake in all matters the other countries did, Četket was allowed to keep its unique form of land usage with its still nomadic traditions and barter economy. Jåhkja, Suuleå, Luoni and a collection of tribes referred to as the Jappnatjahk formed a federation inside the union as much of their identities and politics aligned. At the turn of the millenium, the union formally became one unit as represented by the AN while in practice remaining as 7 separate entities. This also led to the union adopting a form of direct democratic governance and removing the position of 'head of state' in favour of its modern rotating speaker system. People today vote relatively directly, selecting unique representatives based on individual topics as opposed to for the formation of a government.


The union offers a diverse range of climates from Polar arctic in the far north, to tundra, to Taiga. From sprawling archipelagos among the most extensive in the world to large marshlands and ariable valleys.


Most of the union sits upon Hadean bedrock, wiped clear of later sedimental formations by the idiacric and brennic ice sheets. Notable exceptions include the massive collision Moraine known as the Jåhkja flats, the Kresy Zielone plains and the Četketic marshes. It has little to no geologic activity.


Silland has a diverse cast of artic and sub arctic fauna, famous for its herds of reindeer and myskoxe, as well as walrus, seals and moose. It is believed that the Četket marshes was the home of the last living wooly mamoths, separated from the rest of the world by the Erne mountains.
