Plan of Walkegan
The state of Walkegan is a closed-collaborative state located between Minnonigan, Seneppi, Aquilia, and AR120-52 in the West Lakes portion of the Federal States. (Walkegan also shares a border with Wychelle, but without a direct land connection.) The state is very loosely based on the U.S. state of Indiana, with a mix of industrial, suburban, and natural land uses along the shore of Lake Sauganash while much of the rest of the state is largely agricultural with a few smaller cities located along rivers and transportation corridors, as well as a larger city located along the river border with AR120-52. The topography is mostly flat throughout the state.


The coordinators of the Walkegan collaborative are Ernestpcosby and TheMayor. As a closed collaborative, all requests to map in Walkegan must go through the coordinators.


Walkegan is mapped in a contemporary style (i.e., non-historic mapping). Unique to the Walkegan collaborative is the land allocation process: the state is divided into townships, which are each 36 square miles (6 miles x 6 miles); interested mappers can request contiguous groups of townships to develop and map. Larger urban areas and other areas of importance are intended to be collaborative, where multiple mappers can work together to create Walkegan's cities.

The state is divided into four phases of development, which will open over time based on interest and neighboring states.

  • Phase 1, the southwest quadrant of the state, is opening first. This quadrant includes a variety of context areas including:
  • the mid-size City of Miller (T16S R10W and surroundings);
  • the "Big Island" natural area (T15S R13W and surroundings);
  • commuter and industrial suburbs of Lake City;
  • commuter and industrial suburbs of Gramercy;
  • rural agricultural areas; and
  • the small capital city of Finch Hill (T01S R07W).
  • Phase 2a is located in the southeastern quadrant of the state and is expected to open after Phase 1. Phase 2a includes the mid-size city of Pike and commuter/industrial suburbs of Wallawaukee, as well as more agricultural areas.
  • Phase 2b is located in the northwestern quadrant of the state, which includes the mid-size city of Gleason, agricultural areas, and some of what's likely the state's only hilly terrain along the Aquilia border. Note: Phase 2b may open before Phase 2a based on development patterns and continued vacancy of AR120-52.
  • Phase 3 is expected to be the final portion of the state to open to mapping, including a new large city and what's tentatively expected to be a decaying "rust belt" industrial corridor along the river border with AR120-52. Phase 3 plans will be finalized in coordination with any future owner of AR120-52 before opening.


Available Townships

Please contact Ernestpcosby or TheMayor before editing in any townships, including collaboratives. Note that townships marked with an asterisk are not a full 36 square miles. Mappers are encouraged to request up to 9 contiguous townships which can be used to create a county. While township boundaries can (and should) be changed to reflect natural features such as rivers and streams, please do not move or delete any parts of the existing survey grid.

Key to colors:

  • Orange: available, flexible primary land use
  • Green: available, rural (average township population < 25,000)
  • Yellow: available, suburban
  • Blue: available, urban/industrial
  • Purple: collaborative, urban/suburban
  • Pink: collaborative, rural/natural
  • Light Gray: claimed or unavailable
  • Dark Gray: out of state/no land

Collaborative Areas

We are currently seeking suggestions and plans for the three Phase I collaborative areas: the state capital of Finch Hill; the Miller area; and the big island in Lake Sauganash. We welcome plans from any mapper, not just existing Walkegan (or even existing FSA) mappers. The Walkegan coordinators reserve the right to select a submitted plan with or without additional input from the OGF community.
