Boscainifornio gets its name from the Fricuiqous native tribe and their word “Buscineikormuo” meaning “By the sea” in Ingerish. This word was morphed into Boscainifornio by Ingerish colonists, before it became the official name of the mainland colony in 1701. The name didn't apply to the Catlino Island territory until 1704. After it became part of the Federal States of Archanta in ??, it added the prefix “Federal State of” to its official title, becoming the “Federal State of Boscainifornio,” which is what it has been called ever since. Citizens of the Federal States commonly just refer to it as “Boscainifornio”.
Boscainifornio is located on the coast of the Ardentic Ocean, and is bordered by Laine to the north, Arlington to the northeast, Caroline to the west and Natrinia to the south. The state is mostly composed of a coastal plain, however a small sliver of land in the western portion of the state is composed of hills, running through ?? and ?? Counties. Near the shoreline, there are also many sandy beaches. The Catlino Islands are mainly just coastal plains

Pre-colonization (c. 8,000 BCE- ?? AD)
The first recorded people in this territory was a native tribe called the Fricuiqous, who arrived around 10,000 years ago and called the territory “Buscineikormuo,” meaning “By the sea” in their native language. After a series of small native wars, including Chief Tahoe’s War, the Fricuiqous took control of the entire territory of modern Boscainifornio, as well as some territory in bordering states. They ruled the territory until an Ingerish ship, “The Springrose” arrived on Catlino Island in 1689, where the settlers aboard founded a town named Burgundyville, starting a period of Ingerish colonization.
Ingerish Colonization (?? AD- ?? AD)
After the first colonists landed the Springrose on Catlino Island in 1689, they founded the town of Burgundyville. In 1692, a group of catholic colonists arrived. After several issues with the protestant-majority colonists, the catholics, led by Alexander Eden, were banished from the Catlino Colony to the mainland. They, landed in what is now Eden County in 1700, and founded a new colony based on religious freedom. They believed so much in this freedom, they even accepted the natives religion. They began to ally theirselves with the Fricuiqous, and in 1701 adopted the native name to the territory, with some Ingerish tweaks, founding the Boscainifornio Colony.
However, in 1702, the Catlino Colony was failing. Neglect from Ingerland as well as conflict with the natives had pushed the colonists to their limits. In 1700, the Catlino Colony had a population of 2,400 people. By 1703, the population was down to 930. 800 colonists had moved to the mainland since 1702 alone! The colonists from Catlino landed in modern day Washingmore County, and founded at small town named Oceansburough. In 1704, the Catlino Colony officially became part of the Boscainifornio Colony.
