Aorangēa is a federal republic composed of nine nations and four territories. It is located about 600km off the south-western Kartumian coast, and 400km south of New Ingerland. It shares a major land border with East Anglesbury as well as a smaller one with New Ingerland on a shared island. The majority of the population speaks local Kartumian dialacts of Ingerish, while in some areas other languages, idigenous as well as immigrated ones, dominate. The country consists of many islands, the largest three being Anglesbury, Youcesterland and Kiranēna Island.
A mountain range along the west coast causes a moist climate in the western parts. The eastern parts of the islands are relatively flat.
Anglesbury Island is the largest and most denseley populated island. The island is shared between Aorangëa and East Anglesbury. A meteorite impact about 150 million years ago created an annular bay at the north-eastern coast. The countryside is dominated by farmland and forests.
Youcesterland has a slightly colder climate than Anglesbury Island. Population is centered around the northern and eastern coast. The countryside is dominated by pastures and forests.
Kiranēna Island has a significantly colder climate than the big islands. The countryside is dominated by heath and forests, which are not suitable for significant argiculture. The island is very sparsely inhabited. Most of the population live at the coast. The highest mountains are found on the island.
In 1622 the first Ingerish outpost was founded on the northern island. Two immigration waves in 1648 and 1777 increased the Ingerish population, mostly in the outposts. These outposts, collectively called the Seven Ports of the South, only had some hinterland and stayed isolated to the rest of the island.
The 3rd City was a trade outpost populated by different Kartumian traders with no hinterland.
Redbeard's Island came under the control of a pirate only known as "Davy Jones II" in 1772.
Second Ingerish Immigration Wave (1777)
In 1808 the Anglesbury Colony comprising the Seven Ports and most of the northern island was founded.
A large part of the native population moved south to the City of Elleah and the Naoran controlled southern part of the island. The Youcester Colony was founded on the south island in 1815.
Rising unrest from the remaining native population and a decline in Ingerish interest lead to an independence movement. The Viceroy of Youcester was granted hereditiary Dukedom as a desperate attempt of the Ingerish government. The independence movement finally resulted in decolonisation in 1836. Some royalists move to East Anglesbury which decides to remain under Ingerish control.
Most other parts of the archipelago became part of Aorangēa. The country is divided into nations, provinces and territories. The remaining part of Anglesbury joined as a nation, as well as the Youcester Colony. The independent but mostly unorganized countries of Naora, Móllaigh and Waikaori formed three other nations. Rainbow's End?
The mostly uninhabited areas in the South became the Southern Islands Territory.
The City of Elleah joins the federation in 1877 when influences from rivaling Kartumian countries threaten the security of the city.
From Industrialisation to Modern History
Redbeard's Island became AN mandate in 1920 () when civil order collapsed. It was handed over to the Aorangëan Federation in 1943.
In 1953, a referendum was held to unify the different currencies used on the archipelago. As a result, fostered by a probably unwise combination of improperly formulated questions, the electorate decided to unify the currencies but to keep most of their local currency system. The currencies were indeed unified by use of a fixed exchange rate system, while the old currency systems gave the names or labels for the new coins and banknotes. The currency situation is still confusing for many. But as the system is working, the confusion reduced by electronic payment methods, and the topic being politically poisoned, the system will likely remain unchanged. Also all referenda have been banned since.
In 1924 the theocratic party won the elections. After managing to be re-elected once narrowly, they used some legislative loopholes to the extend the parliament term indefinetely. Their position was, that the end of the world was near anyway, and further elections would only interfere with the preparations for the apocalypse.
While the theocratic government was quite successfull in pushing the country's economy closer to complete destruction, the only thing eventually doomed was the political influence of the cleric after spiritual leaders turned out not only to be absolutely incompetent, but also as immoral as only their grimmest sermons would give account of. Additionally, the desire of the government to take part in the upcoming War (or even starting it, if no one else would do) to accelerate the apocalypse finally lead to the revolution of 1937.
This ended the trip into the Middle Ages. As a result, any religious references were removed from constitution and institutions and all religious privileges were revoked.
