Ambrosia, Ambroisie (in franquese), Ambrozijn (dutch equivalent), Ambrosía (yurish) is a country located on the Southwestern coast of Astrasia. It is bordered to the South by the Asperic Ocean, South Castellan and AR041g, by Yuris and Ôrlé to the North, by New South Angria to the East, by Westland and Lutécia to the West. Its capital is Port Ambroise but Meridian (Méridrien / Meridiaan) is the largest city. The country covers a land area of 228 326.93 km² (88 157.52 sq mi) and has a population of about 14 millions people (Ambrosians).

Etymology

Ambrosia bears the mythologic name given to the food of the gods wich was supposed to confer immortality. Ambrosia is also the name of a plant widely present in the south of the country and was certainly the reason why this last one has been named this way.


History

To be determined but it was certainely a former franquese colony, maybe it still...

Geography

Relief map of Ambrosia

The territory of Ambrosia is located between the 40th and 46th parallel south and between the meridians 128 and 135. Covering an area of ​​228 326,93 km², it has a rich geographical diversity and can be divided into three large distinct regions Lower Ambroisia, territory on which the main rivers flow towards the South, Upper Ambrosia where rivers flow towards the northeast (to Ôrlé) and Galesia on the East side of the Galese River. The borders of the country are mainly materialized by the natural relief. The Great Shield to the north and of the Cavaliers chains to the west separates it from Yuris and Ôrlé, respectively. The central part of the course of the Galese River marks the border with New South Angria to the east, The Prebe River, the border with AR041g and South Castellan and the Leon River with Westland .

The geographical extremes:

The Cap Meridion is the southernmost point of the country is located at the end of Meridon Island [1]. Mount Preatorium (Mont Prétoire / Monte Pretório)[2] is both the northernmost point and the highest one (4400m) of the country. Mount ... (1984m) in the Condor Massif (Eastern Galesia) materializes the most eastern point of the country [3] and Mont Saint Just (Sint Juust) the most western one.

The Galese River is the longuest river with 920km and the Lake Rodezee the largest body of water.


The coast:

The country is bordered on the south by the Asperic Ocean which penetrates deeply into the lands forming three long inner bays : - Meridian Bay between the Admiral Cape (Cap de l'Amiral / AdmiraalKaap) and the Lanterns Cape (Cap des Lanternes / LantaarnsKaap). - Bay of Isles (formely Onkavik Bay) between the Admiral Cape (Cap de l'Amiral / AdmiraalKaap) and the Orange Peninsula. - Galthaise Bay

The Islands : The coast and the bays are scattered by many islands and islets of different sizes. Some of them are populated. the Isle of Ambroyse in Port Ambroise is the most populated. It is separated from the mainland by a canal.

-The Nectarydes Archipelago represents a group of four main islands (Bordanse, Langeiron, Andreade and Astrel)[4] all are connected to the coast from Miramar harbour.

-Santandrian Island is the largest island. It is located in the Bays of Isles [5]

-Sleutel Islands

-Meridion Island is the southernmost island [6]

Ranges of mountains : Ambrosia is generally pretty hilly, more mountainous in the North and flatter in the South East in Galesia.

The Andelances [7]

The Anserines

The Great Shield (le Grand Bouclier / o Grande Escudo) : Its highest, peak Mount Preatorium (Mont Prétoire / Monte Pretório) culminates at 4400m and marks the border between Ambrosia, Yuris and Ôrlé. [8]

Climate

Ambrosia is located in a temperate zone, partly under oceanic and continental influence as we approach the mountain ranges. Lower Ambrosia is mainly a region with an oceanic climate with prevailing winds from the south-west giving frequent rainfall and mild temperatures with few annual amplitudes, whereas Upper Ambrosia has a more continental climate and benefits, in plain, from summer temperatures warmer, but its higher relief and higher average altitude accentuate the temperature range between winter and summer.

Many lake areas give rise to multiple microclimates. The volcanic territory of the Massif des Fumerolles (Fumarolen Massief) records numerous climatic anomalies due to its volcanic and geothermal activity.

The South under oceanic influence:

The oceanic air masses enter the South West and go up the Galese and the Leon valleys before colliding with the first high reliefs. The ocean fronts are less strong and less frequent in the plains of Upper Ambrosia on the other side of the Massif des Stellaires.

The central plateau with continental climate:

From the threshold of Argentois, the climate of the Regisian and Reginean sedimentary basins gets drier and warmer. Warmer winds from the North of Ôrlé raise temperatures during the summer. In fact, even if the average altitude is higher in the north than in the south, the summers stay warmer there.

The climate of the mountains:

The climate of the Grand Shield chain is certainly the most rigorous in the country, followed by the High Cavaliers and Stellar Mountains. The presence of glaciers or eternal snow on the peaks impacts neighboring areas.

The records:

The March is the province that records the hottest temperatures during the summer with an average of more than 32 ° C. Upper Galesia records the coldest temperatures during the winter down to -15 ° C.

The precipitations :

They are more abundant in the south of the country. They are mainly concentrated in Rosallón, Galesia, Eastern Galesia, Ambrosine, in southern Transgalesia and in Leonia.

Administrative Divisions

The country is divided in 3 Regions (Lower Ambrosia, Upper Ambrosia and Galesia) and 15 Provinces :

Infrastructure

Energy

Wind power

Wind turbines scattered on the coast (off-shore as well) and hill ridges contribute nearly 20% of the country's energy supply. In the islands of the Bay of Isles they provide electricity to towns and isolated villages.

Hydrolic energy

The largest dam is located on Rodezean Lake, which is an important source of energy and a huge reserve of fresh water. The tidal power plant of Baie des Isles near Port Ambroise supplies the capital with energy needs. Many water mills supply electricity to residents of the country's rivers to a lesser extent.

Geothermal energy

Mainly located in the Fumerolles Massif geothermal power plants provides electricity to much of Leonia and Ambrosine. They also supply hot water (heating) to nearby localities.

The biggest river dam reservoir is the Lake Rodezee wich is an important source of energy and water supply.

Demographics

Ulethian origins :

Most Ambrosians are of West ulethian origin. Arrived from the XVIth century and more massively during the XVIIth century. Lots of them came from Franqueterre and the Firth of Hetzer and also from Castellan.

Natives of Ambrosia

The Natives groups :

The Natives remain very present throughout the territory but mostly in the Northern Provinces. Due to a quite pacific colonisation and administration of Ambrosia, they could have been well assimilated to the ulethian populations and could keep their traditions alive. Two main groups are present in this part of Astrasia : The Hamiscoux and the Hachalaggans. Smaller tribes can be found in different places, like the Balthuks in the Massif des Fumerolles, the Rodes around the Rodesee Lake and the Ascubecs in the North along the Great Shield Mountains.

Languages

Franquese is the official language used everywhere throughout the country but three other languages are also spoken.

  • Dutch equivalent is widely spoken in Leonia (Leeuwnië)
  • Kalmish is spoken in the East beyond the Galesia River (Galésie).
  • Native Astrasian languages and dialects are still really used.

As a multicultural country, the federal government encourages each province to maintain the practice of regional languages ​​and dialects to protect its cultural heritage. With the exception of some parochial rivalries, multiculturalism is generally well accepted by Ambrosians who perceive it rather as a wealth and no matter where they live.

The national Flag

"The starred belt", Ambrosia national flag

The flag is named the "starred belt" (la ceinture étoilée). It features four colours (blue, white, red and yellow) and the Eternal Star constellation (on the right upper corner). It symbolizes by two golden triangles the union of the two former colonies that now compose the country : Ambrosia (Ambrosine, Leonia, Heraldia and Rodézée) and the Galesia (Galesia, Eastern Galesia and Rosallón) each former province represented by a star on the red belt.
