I put five million because I would have put fifty... since fifty million is the approximate population of Imperial Germany circa 1900, which is what I'm basing Landsvall off of. But I didn't want them to be massively overpowered compared to other countries, so I just reduced it by a power of ten.

Do you mind if I join in on the fun? I still need to put some final thoughts to a country, but I do have a rough idea in mind already.

Well, Anglarctur's population is 'Large'. Yay vagueness. I'll probably make that more clear soon.

Also, can I assume there are other non-human races besides the dark elves of Aranea?

@Warpfire: Only as slaves. It's mostly dark elves, with a few humans.

Hmm...have to add in the slaves...*Goes to add, then to post in the game*

@V Ahh, I see.

Ahem, to clarify my question: Can I assume there are other non-human races in the world, other than dark elves? I suppose this would directed at Geomancer.

Assume whatever you need to to make it work. The people of Sammealin are barely human as it is.

I've increased Landsvall's population threefold because I felt it would make it fit in more as the mid-sized nation that it is.

The Illumarian Empire


Illumar consists of a vast area of desert nestled up against the sea and split by two rivers. It also holds three large islands off the coast. Most of the population lives in cities on these islands, along the coast, and on the banks of the rivers. There are tribes living in the deep desert, but they go largely uncounted. Theology and tradition weigh heavily in the empire, especially the worship of the Sun Goddess: Illeana. Her church holds great influence over the people and is usually consulted by the Empress, Alexandra, on important matters. The two factions often disagree, as governments and religions are want to do, and at times threatens to tear the country apart. Fortunately, the past few decades have been peaceful.

Alternate names: Illumar, The Great States (of Illumar)
Government: Hereditary Monarchy, although it becomes more democratic at lower levels.
Religion: the majority of the population worship Illeana, the Sun Goddess, but a decent percentage, mostly sailors, also pay homage to the Sea Goddess, Hydrene. A very small part, less than 10%, follow the mischievious Shareck, God of Shadows.
Agriculture: Along the rivers are stretches of irrigated land, which produce grains and cotton. Two of the islands are fertile, and well irrigated by natural springs, the third is barren rock. The islands are covered in orchards and a good portion of the eaternmost isle is dedicated to vinyards.
Exports: Seafood, grains, textiles, fruits, Iron, Gold, gemstones, Jewelry
Currency: The Illumarian Real
Population: Elven 20% Human 70% Dwarven 7% Other 3%

People of Power
Spoiler:



Empress Alexandra
Race: Elf
Gender: Female
Hair: Dark Blue
Eyes: Green
Position: Secular ruler of the Illumarian Empire, she inherited the postion of Empress from her mother.

Admiral Johnathan Swift

Gender: Male

Sorry to double post like this but I have a question: What is the relative technology level of these countries? Bows and arrows, cars, guns, aircraft, space flight? My section of the world is leaning a bit towards the fantasy realm, AKA magic, is that alright, too over powered, underpowered? I was curious where we all stood. Thanks.

We were bouncing the idea around in Geo's original thread in The Forum. I don't know about the others, but me and I think J are both envisioning ours as a World War II era steampunk kind of thing.

Magic is fine as long as they keep on par with about WWII level tech. I'm playing the Landsvallians as having, like Nevr said, a sort of steampunkish WWII tech. They have tanks, airplanes, and armored zeppelins.

((Die free time! DIE!))

The Under-Empire of Skyre

Skyre is a unique country in that it is built almost entirely underground. The above ground portion of the country's territory encompasses part of a mountain range, a small island and a stretch of grassland. The underground portion doesn't extend much further than the borders. When space runs out, Skyre builds down. Signs of industry can be seen on the surface, mostly in the form of massive chimneys and slag heaps. The government maintains technology as a religion, and in this way controls the populace.

Government: Oligarchy.
Religion: Technology. Skyre teaches that machines deserve respect, even veneration. All of their technology is religiously maintained and serviced.
Economy: Good. Though lacking agriculturally, Skyre makes up for this with industry.
Population: 3,581,467 give or take (plus approximately 500,00 aberrants)
Climate/Geography: only on the surface, and no one in Skyre cares about that.
Motto: Diligentia Nos Fides
Main Import: Food
Main Export: Equipment. More specifically, anything technological in nature and useful in practice.
Currency: Skyrian Credit
Military:Small. Skyrian units are extremely well trained, and fanatical in their duty. The relatively small military units are supplemented by huge tech-corps, a division made up almost entirely of machinery.

Leader: The High Lords
Skyre's ruling elite is a council of five men, each representing a different facet of society. Each is equally important, and each is also the highest ranked member of their respective groups.
