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.
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.
Formed from the remnants of a volcano, Wychelle has rich and arable soil surrounded by lowlands of lakes and rivers and rows of hills creating many valleys and distinctive regions.
The population is heavily centred around urban areas due to the Morgan Long National Park, which encompasses nearly 50% of the state.

The Battle of Rum was fought June 12-14, 18XX, in and around the town of Rum, Wychelle by XX and XX forces.

Lord Wallington of the XX forces lead the first charge during the battle and become a legend amongst soldiers for his unrivalled bravery and courage earning him the nickname; The Stallion.
