Saint Almath, sometimes shortened to St. Almath, is a semi-independent micro-country in Antarephia, lodged in the border between Lons and Winn. While the country has its own independent government and elections, it is also considered a borough of Winn.

History

Etymology

Saint Almath borough is named after the city of Saint Almath, which on its turn is named after Almath of Grimmen, a Heltavanian saint, who lived in the city. Almath died in 1464, and was buried near the city's basilica. In 1481, the basilica was named after him, and in 1502, the city offically took on the name of the famous church, which had become a place of pilgrimage. Prior to this, the city was known as Grimm.

Flag

The flag of Saint Almath, the country is identical to that of the city and can be described as a tricolore, with a blue lane flanked by two red lanes. In the left red lane, a white cross, and in the right red lane, a white star. Officially described, the blue and red stand for the colors of Saint Almath of Grimmen's dynasty. The cross indicates the presence of a basilica, and the star was added in 1890, indication of the country officially gaining its independence from Winn.

There is one highway, officially a highwayroad, that goes through Saint Almath - the N-151, which turns into the N-15 near Greavemine in Winn. It has three exits in Saint Almath before continuing into Lons - between Saint Almath City and Humsby, between Saint Almath City and Saintschurch, and near Connor. Additionally, part of the ring road around the city is also commonly referred to as a highway, although the speed limit here is 80km/h and it's not officially a highway.

Provincial roads

Several provincial roads lie within Saint Almath. Uncommonly, these aren't considered part of the Winnster provincal road network, and are numbered differently - instead of being numbers as R-XXX, they are numbered A-X, where X is a number.

The A-15 is the only one that is named oddly, as it describes a road that approximately follows the route of the N-151, between all three of its exits in the country.

Rail transportation

There is no nationally owned or operated railway in Saint Almath, however, railway companies from both Lons and Winn have been allowed to run a service into the country. The Lonish corporation LH, operates a line from Estên Misuî Station to Buthes-Saint Almath Station, in the border village of Buthes. From Buthes, a shuttle bus takes passengers to the city. From the Winnster side, one out of four sprinter trains from Gidswhilde into Greavemine will continue towards Saint Almath, halting at the Chappel-Humsby Station, in Chappel, before continuing onwards towards Saint Almath Station, near the centre of the capital city. In the morning and evening rush, an additional intercity train will also call at Saint Almath Station, going towards Greavemine, Gidswhilde and towards Kennwalk.
