Engden (Eŋrige) is a country located in western Antarephia. The capital of Engden is Göteholm, located on the northern coast.

Administrative subdivisions

Engden is subdivided into 12 districts called län, each with its own regional assembly called länstiŋ. The Länstiŋ are responsible for health care, regional road infrastructure, regional public transit, regional planning, and similar tasks. Each län is further subdivided into municipalities or sammen.

Engden has a vast road network, comprised mostly of ordinary two-lane roads, at least 9 meters wide on the numbered national road network. Roads are divided into five different levels, and numbered thereafter, see table below.

Number range Road level Authority/Owner Minimum road width Number signed?
1-9 Extreme importance Väg- och vattenverket 9 meter Yes
10-99 National Väg- och vattenverket 9 meter Yes
100-999 Regional Länstiŋet 7 meter Yes
1000+ Local Samliŋstiŋet None No
10000+ Other roads Semiprivate None No

Limited-access roads are called motorväg (motorway) or motortrafikled (expressway), with expressways not requiring lane separation making them essentially half motorways. Motorways and expressways are always signed explicitly as such, to clearly differentiate them from regular roads or motorway-like roads which usually allow slow traffic.


The people of Engden enjoy great political freedom, and there are currently 8 different parties represented in the Folkets Tiŋ, representing a broad spectrum of views, from socalists to libertarians. The legislative body, the Folkets Tiŋ, has 299 seats and is unicameral. It is located in the capital, Göteholm. Elections are held every 3 years, on both national, regional and local level. The regional level is governed by each Länstiŋ, and the number of seats are in proportion to the population of the län. The same applies to the local Sammen in which the assembly is called the Samliŋstiŋ. For winning seats in the Folkets Tiŋ, there is a 3 % threshold, and for the Länstiŋ the threshold is at 2 %. Local assemblies have no threshold.
