AR120-25 is a relatively large, collaborative state in the Northeastern Flag of the FSA.svg Federal States. If you're interested in helping out, read the restrictions for your county and either send Infrarrojo a private message or sign up below.

Consider joining if:

  • You're interested in working on a map inspired by Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas
  • You're looking to get involved in a modern-day collaborative, but are not ready to invest the time in mapping a large area
  • You're looking to learn about the American Southeast, gaining experience for your own state or territory
  • You just want to have a good time collaborating with other mappers who share your interests


Introduction

Eustacia is a state that resembles the American Southeast, where you can draw inspiration pretty freely but especially from the Atlantic coast. Generally, however, the state's southeast should primarily resemble Northern Florida or coastal South Carolina, while the rest of the state should primarily draw from Georgia and the Carolinas. Below can be found resources for exploring this kind of environment, including OpenStreetMap links. Make sure that you have an understanding of what to do before signing up for a task below.

The state's capital and largest city, Hazelboro, should draw inspiration from Atlanta, Greensboro, Charlotte, and Savannah among other places. Its major coastal city, Eleana, should draw inspiration from Pensacola, Tallahassee, Jacksonville, and Myrtle Beach. Other cities will be independently mapped, with a wider range of inspirations.

The premise of the state should be a combination of consensus and moving things along. Decisions have to be reached, but there will always be room for comment and flexibility for changes even in fundamental parts of the state. Appropriate space will be provided for taking issue with the suggested names and plans, and if there is a major issue we can then go into voting to seek consensus.

Participate

In Eustacia, there are 3 types of counties available for mapping. The first type of county is one which you can sign up for freely, and they are marked below by "Replace this text with your username". While there is an activity requirement, it will be very low for this type of county. The second type of county is one which you can sign up for with a basic plan. The activity requirement is higher for these counties, as they either neighbor other states or countries, or have a minor city. The third type of county is the only one in which mapping quality will be judged, as they contain larger cities and should only be left for advanced users who can be active in the county. These rules are subject to change with demand. Below is a list of counties, with some basic information. There are 32 claimable counties, and 8 that will be collaborative for participants to work on together.
