Wychelle (Which-e-lee) is a state in the Grand Lakes region of the Federal States.

The state's name, Wychelle, originates from the folktale suspicion of witches residing in the area, making the state originally an unpopular place for settlers and earnt its current name. Wychelle is the XX most populous state with the XX most extensive land area.

The capital, Wytusky, is a bustling city settled in 1878, became an trading center and cultural centre for the the settlers of the oil rush and the local tribe, the Juwaba people. Caldwell, the largest city, is also a significant lake port, trading with nearby states. It hosts a majority of Wychelle's historical sites such as the Museum of Native History, McGregen's Village, the Loddan Witch Trails and the infamous Darling Dredge.

Etymology

The Wychelle region, west of the Seneppi territory, was commonly regarded as the place where witches were born and came from. This gave it a heavily tarnished name when the Federal States government decided to colonise it in the early 19th century. The Old Ingerish way of spelling witch was 'wyche', finding the new territory its name, Wychelle.
