The Principality of Graenakkur, (French: Le Principalite de Graenakkur; Ismikkese: Principar della Graenakkur,) also called informally "Graenakkur", is a nation located on the subcontinent on the southern part of the continent of Archanta. Its capital and by far largest commune/city is Graenakkue-Ville, whose area includes over 60% the country's population, while other major communes with substantial populations include (in descending order by size of population) Parra, Gaillard, Beaudottes, and Les Sommets.


Etymology

Unlike it's neighbour Ismikk, there is infact a consensus on the origin of the name of the country. It is widely known that the present-day nation is named after the first royal palace when the commune of Varnadorm was founded in the 1700's. Once this historic commune was amalgamated into the nation of Ismikk due to economic reasons, the royal palace, known at the time as the House of Greanafaro-Akkurthaille, ceased to exist. When a movement promising a bright economic and social future succeeded in gaining independence for the small state in the 1950's, the founders returned ceremonial powers to the royal family as a gift. The term "Graenakkur" is a portmanteau of the two royal palace house names.

Sport

Football in the Principality of Graenakkur and Ice Hockey are, by attendance and economic figures, the most popular spectator sports in the nation. For football, the country has a men's and women's domestic league system and international teams, both of which compete in international qualifying competitions.
