Belphenian Sea

The Belphenian Sea

The Belphenian Sea (Nihonish: ベルフェニシア海 Berufenishia umi; Kuehongese: 㴜备分雅 Biển Bị phân nhã) is a sea part of the Asperic Ocean. It is west of the Ardentic Ocean, and ends at the Sound of Pa and the Gulf of Axia to the west. Countries bordering the sea includes Orinoco, Kuehong Belphenia, and Pasundan-Padjadjaran. The sea carries tremendous strategic importance; one-third of the world's shipping passes through it, carrying over $3 trillion in trade each year. It contains lucrative fisheries, which are crucial for the food security of millions in Northern Archanta. Huge oil and gas reserves are believed to lie beneath its seabed. There is also a number of islands in the sea. The sea and its mostly uninhabited islands are subject to competing claims of sovereignty by several countries. These claims are also reflected in the variety of names used for the islands and the sea.


The dispute can be traced back during the Volkman era (the 1950s to 2011) when the nation's missiles programme has negatively impacted trade in the region. Even after Belphenia's mass withdrawal of its troops in the sea after the fall of the regime, the dispute still continues, as the new government maintains that it still holds historic rights over the sea, which has been ruled out many times by the Assembly of Nations.

Vision for Archanta

Based on:

This is a forum post to simply discuss a cohesive vision for Archanta (at least, mainly for the northern part, though those at the south are encouraged to add in their input). This vision is not binding, and each mapper in Archanta can choose whether to accept the vision as it is or propose a new development.

Cultural map?

Just discuss if you think there's something wrong with it.


Your "Latin America" is there, where now is a french cluster and a low-kalmish land (Zylanda)--Histor (talk) 12:10, 17 September 2019 (CEST)

The "Latin America" of OGF is supposed to be Tarephia. I would think of that area as closer to Africa. --Yoyo21 (talk) 14:14, 17 September 2019 (CEST)

Yeah I also thought so. It was previously, but now we have quite a bunch of Spanish speaking nations there. It can be a cluster of pseudo Asian languages as well combined with Spanish, as what Adaria is doing.--Happy mapping and God blesses you, ZK (talk) 15:51, 17 September 2019 (CEST)

Zhenkang, I think you should be careful of superimposing your own ideas on Archanta, especially with the unknown factor, Commonia. Here are my observations on the challenges Archanta faces:

  • There is no guidance from admin on Archanta overall, so you have a few opportunities here:
    • You can develop Archanta organically, taking what already exists and developing a plausible plan for Archanta. You have a lot of flexibility here, but you will need to set and manage expectations for all the mappers involved as you follow through with with new developments
    • If you prefer guidance from the admin instead, you can ask the admin what their vision is and work with it
    • You can pick a plan of action somewhere between these two extremes
  • As it is still largely unknown what Commonia will be, it is difficult to say how Archanta Major will affect the whole continent.
    • Alternatively, this is an opportunity for the Archantan community to propose something to the admin team (wangi) on Commonia's future
  • Archanta appears to be a patchwork of cultures, largely dominated by the FSA, CCA, and Commonia.
    • As far as I can tell, the agreed indigenous cultures in Archanta so far are inspired by the South African indigenous peoples and the indigenous peoples of the Americas.
    • The other cultures appear to be colonial in nature.
  • Mecyna is another blue country in Archanta; it is situated in a very strategic location in Archanta, so it might be good to also understand how Mecyna interacts with both north and south Archanta. This means mappers in Mecyna may need a separate vision for the territory so that it doesn't shift too much from the overall vision for Archanta.
  • Several mappers in Archanta are well-respected; I would especially get their inputs on what they envision Archanta to be

Archanta gets the vast majority of new territory grants, and these are managed to a rough plan. It also has the bulk of the blue territories. Both these make it hard to progress this, especially while the rest of Commonia is pending review. /wangi (talk) 22:32, 17 September 2019 (CEST)
@Chazeltine I'm planning to work with wangi on this, but I am making a rough personal plan first and see how it works. I'm not really alone in this; I'm now in contact with other users on this and gathering more information on the prominent Archantan nations (at least, for the North side first, which has more indigenous cultures) to get a better pattern and eventually draw out a framework.
By the way, the map in my sandbox is just a draft and merely my observation of the pattern so far of cultures, and my predictions for the unoccupied ones. It's not meant to really be a framework. It may be inaccurate cos I dont know much of the nations at all. But if you can spot another pattern, feel free to propose here.--Happy mapping and God blesses you, ZK (talk) 01:22, 18 September 2019 (CEST)

Archanta Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (ARCEP)

The Archanta Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership is a proposed trade agreement among various nations in northern and northeastern Archanta and some from eastern Uletha as well. Basically. it calls for the creation of a regional trade market, especially due to the fact that some nations, such as Rhododactylia, Laguna, Kuehong and Fayaan, are not in either the CARECU or the EUOIA. The proposal also calls for a possible regional rail and road project, a network of shipping and aviation connections and a regional disaster onitoring and warning system on typhoons and earthquakes.
