| This is a lost country (or other lost place) that no longer exists in OpenGeofiction.
In some cases, articles about lost countries or other lost places may be preserved as a record of someone's creative efforts long ago, but these articles have no bearing on the OpenGeofiction world. DO NOT use the information in these articles in developing histories. These countries are no longer "canon", which means that not only do they no longer exist, but they never existed in OGF history.
Today the country exhibits a high quality of life for its citizens while holding onto a large manufacturing of industry of various products.

The land Meciara occupies was empty up until the 3rd century CE. Here Gaermanic and Slevic tribes moved into the southern regions from the west and east respectively. There, both communities settled in the southern regions and rarely moved north beyond the country's mountain ranges. Wars between the small, early iron age kingdoms were common although many of these settlements have been lost to time. Though many archeological expeditions have found remains along the banks of the Mother and Juniper rivers on the site of many of today's modern cities.
Many of the communities of old iron age towns often coalesced into larger kingdoms, and often these kingdoms were based on a shared ancestry. Wars between kingdoms were common and often entire groups of people were exiled to the mountainous regions and the northern expanses beyond (more often than not the exiled groups were of Gaermanic decent.) When not at war, the kingdoms traded with each other along the many rivers that flowed into the Egalian Lake or the Sibling Lakes. Trade routes were also established along Juniper Pass and High Pass. Towns charged high taxes to move goods through their towns that provided refuge for traders and travellers and grew greatly during periods of trade. However, with the invasion of the Egalian Empire, these towns' boom economies would eventually fade.
The second kingdom
Meciara's Climate is cool but temperate. There are two separate climate zones in the the country, the south and the north seperated by the TBD mountains. In the southern Regions of the country, the Egalian Lake regulates temperature. This results in cooler summers and warmer winters. Rainfall is also more common. In the north, the climate is much colder and the temperature changes more with the seasons.
The government of Meciara has a large involvement in maintaining the biodiversity of Meciara. The biosphere of Meciara varies by latitude and location to large geographic features. In the south, much of the area is currently farmland, however some areas around rivers and on the beaches of the Egalian Lake are protected. The beaches are often sandy with various grasses and deciduous trees growing on dunes. A few freshwater marshes are located in the center of the country's coastline.
To the north are home to mountains that sport mixed forests of pines and high altitude deciduous trees. As the mountains go north, evergreen forests are more prevalent.
In the northern regions of the country, most land is covered in forests with evergreen trees. Many of the forests are protected by the state, limiting logging activity in that area.
Much of the southern region's economy is based on it's manufacturing centers. Most manufactured goods are finished products for the transportation industry. Two large centers are the railway manufacturing plant in Mociaprot for Meciara National Railway and the riverboat and barge shipyards in Parwyprot. There are a few other manufacturing plants for vehicle parts and smaller appliances in Placeholder City as well as parts for green energy devices in Jeneprkąp.
Farming and Natural Resources
Although the Egalian region has little in the way of mineral wealth, there are a few sandstone and other stone quarries in operation. A few mines for common minerals such as bauxite and iron ore can also be found in the north (although many have been closed since the 1980s.)
