Kalm (officially: Republic of Kalm) is a country in western Uletha, located between the West Sea in the west and south-west, the Vinn Sea in the north and the Egyt Mountains in the east. Adjacent countries are Scandmark and Florescenta to the north-west, Wesmandy, Lentia, and Ventria to the north-east, Estiensia and Garlis to the east, as well as Sathria and Erfeldia to the south.
The territory that nowadays is referred to as the Republic of Kalm traditionally until the late 18th century was a conglomerate of smaller kingdoms, princedoms and dukedoms. Historically, the most powerful ones were
- Kelmreich, located around the valley of Kelm river west of Lake Kohnen (with Kelm river providing the origin for the name of the country),
- Kingdom of Stresia between Vinn Sea in the north, Borwald and Fennplatt mountains in the east, and Fora valley in the south,
- Beltish Kingdom in the north-west, and
- Kingdom of Torschau-Kinsburg in the south.
During Kalmish history there were many territorial changes and many times, the border has been replaced significantly.
End of the New Ionean Empire.
The south of Kalmish territory (as of today) is taken over by Kalmish tribes.
around 665 AD
Rise of the city of Broziant as an important trading city within the delta region of Barsas river. Broziantian conquest of several coastal cities at the West Sea coast (e.g. Sinzhafen, also some other cities more to the north) within the following decades.
around 760 AD
Start of Kalmish written history.
1100 - 1500 AD
Many smaller wars and conflicts between Kalmish petty states and principalities.
around 1600 AD
fatal pest epidemic in the south of Kalm and in Sathria.
Nine Year War (Kalmish: Neunjähriger Krieg), a religious war. A large group of Kamlish speaking people settles in Sathria within Zomontepe near Roantra. During the first years of the war, many catholic people flee from Kalm to Zylanda for religious reasons. After the war, many protestant returnees arrive from Zylanda.
Kalmish Reformation, provoked by the expansion of Sathrian mendicant orders to Kalm and the protest of Kalmish religious adherents against this development. Also, reformed Zylandian returnees had a large influence here. Religious adherents of the new Sathrian persuasions flee back to Sathria.
Sathria invades Erfeldia, occupation of the principality.
1753 - 1754 AD
Sathrian occupation of the city of Herlenz.
1758 - 1778 AD
Coastal part of Torschau region under Sathrian administration.
Year of the Great Compromise with successful negotiations that resulted in the Treaty of Bittervolden (Kalmish: Vertrag von Bittervolden). Torschau and Kinsburg north of Barsas river now again under Kalmish administration. Erfeldia now independent and not part of the Kalmish territory due to Sathrian interests, as part of the compromise.
Large need of unity and thus foundation of the Great Kalmish Empire (Second Empire) with Tarott as capital city. The Duke of Stresia becomes the first Great Kalmish Emperor.
around 1830 AD
The Roantrian King in Kalmish exile within the city of Golbrünn.
Ludwig Balthasar Frömme shoots the Roantrian heir to the throne. The reasons are still not clear, but conflicts with the Kalmish mafia are most probable as the motivation for this crime.
Death of the Roantrian King in Kalmish exile.
Nerschach becomes Kalmish capital again.
The Republic of Kalm is divided into 17 federal regions (Kalmish: Regionen).
Kalm has an extensive network of good-quality transportation infrastructure. It consists of a dense and hierarchic road system with a quite dense motorway (Autobahn) network with only a few few major gaps, a dense and hierarchic railway network (with many rural sections closed during the 20th century but with the tendency of re-opening even smaller lines) used for both passenger and freight traffic in a very high extent and including a growing network of high-speed lines (FLINX), a network of (artificial) inland shipping waterways, important sea shipping ports and facilities at the coasts of West Sea and Vinn Sea, and an hierarchic airport system with Tarott-Kemburg International Airport being the country's main international hub. Also, the constantly growing bicycle path network, often with its own right-of-way and the first grade-separated, prioritized Radschnellweg (bicycle fast-track) sections opened during the last decade is worth mentioning here.
