Etymology

The origin of the name "Laine" is unknown. One theory is that the name comes from the old name on the city of Northeastern Port, "La Entrada" (lit. The Entrance). The city used to be the maine maritime entrance to the state untill the construction of the Orterrado port in 1807. Another theory is that the name comes from the Ingerish word "Lain", meaning "Be, remain, or be kept in a specified state." witch symbolizes the willing of the Lainese to remain in their land.

Infrastructure

Highways and roads

Numbering

Laine has an unusual numbering for its highways. This numbering rely on the counties the highways passes through. Each county (except OR, HS, MC and MT) has a unique number and every highway that starts, ends or crosses one of the counties, it will have this county number in it.

  • Main roads will be marked with two numbers, the counties it starts in and ends in, with the smaller number being first. For example: LN-24 goes from Andaloria county (2) to Augusta Bay county (4)
  • Secondary roads will be marked with same way but with the bigger number being first. For example: LN-xx goes from XX county (#) to XX county (#)
  • Small roads that cross multiple counties will be marked like main roads adding a serial road number. For example: LN-xx goes from XX county (#) to XX county (#)
  • Small roads that cross only one county will be marked with the county number being first and then a serial road number. For example: LN-401 in Augusta Bay county (4).

OR and HS don't have a number. OR is marked with single digit highways and duplicate numbered roads (e.g LN-2 and LN-11). HS is marked with highways with tens and smaller roads with hundreds (e.g LN-20 and LN-100)
Since MT ans MC are both the newest counties, they don't have their own number but instead they have the number their parent county ("Northern County") had, which is the number 8 (e.g LN-89 goes from MC to FL while crossing ML)
