Bois-Unis (Federéchen di Bois-Unis) also known as United Woodlands or Forestia, is a landlocked country in northeastern Uletha. Its inhabitants are called the Boisunians (the citizens) or the Forestians (the main ethnic group).

Its national language is Franquese, but the spoken language is an isolated dialect with Romandian (east-Alvedic) Franquese and many Ingerish words.

History

Bois-Unis gained independence from Älved at the fall of Alvedic Union. Under Älved it was known as Forestia or Northeast Romandia.

Geography

Non-steep, hilly terrain with fields and grasslands in the center, forests in the north. There is an isolated mountain range, the Snaefell, in the center, rich in minerals and ores.

The summit of the country is in the Alvedic Sorokas (around 2500-3000 m) while the lowest point is 110 m below sea level, on the shore of Lake Subb, a salty lake at the bottom of a big depression in the north.

People and economy

The population of Bois-Unis is made of ethnic Alvedic Romandians, and a constantly increasing number of Neberlians, including a large part of them having secondary residences. There are small minorities from Latania and Karamsk in the south, and from Eeland too. Tourism is booming and is a significant part of the country's economy along with logging industry, wood-related works, and mining. All the current economic developments have ties with Neberlian cities like Senford or Binburg.

The capital is a small "new city" constructed close to the town of Laiccine in order to develop the center of the country and give it a proximity to the southern population.
