Alversia is an enviromentally stunning Nation located to the south of the West Pacific area. It has been a democracy for over a hundred years and prides herself on her forward thinking attitude. She is also renowned for her excellant food and wine.
In 400B.U (Before Unification) the landmass of Alversia was dominated by many different empires. All of which commanded the greatest of respect. Although these Empires were militarily powerful, they often collapsed and were replaced by another empire. This was the situation prior to unification
The Empires that were in power during 340bu were:
The Photenic Empire was well known for it's use of 'semi-democracy' whereby the upper-class were allowed to elect a group of their peers to serve as political ambassadors to the other Empires. It was the Empire which aided Illesia during her rebellion against the Danaversian Empire, after which the two engaged in constant wars against each other.
The Army consisted of several thousand regular troops 'The Photenic Phalanx' who were heavily armed hoplites. The rest of the army consisted of conscripted peasants.
The Photenic Empire always suffered from internal instability and was split in two following a brutal civil war with it's northern half, the Vegoscan Empire. It was split in 190B.U, losing significant amounts of territory to it's border empires. It was finally conquered by the Vegoscan Empire in 160B.U and ceased to exist.
The Mezarian Empire occupied the north-east corner of Alversia and was well known politically for it's dual emperor system whereby there were always two Emperors to ease the burden of running a full empire.
The Mezarian Army mostly consisted of conscripted peasants revolving around a few well-trained Imperial Guards. This system worked well when fighting other Armies which employed similiar tactics. It's finest hour was in 160 during the war against the ailing Photenic Empire. Victories there saw a great increase in land although ultimately led to it's downfall.
The Mezarian Empire was split in 130B.U, when the Southern Emperor decided to form his own country in the south of the Empire. Starved of her manpower and industry, the Mezarian Empire soldiered on until 90B.U when, upon the death of the Northern Emperor, it was formally annexed into the Vecanian Empire.
The Roscopin Empire were based in the north and formed the first trained conscripts. It was famous for it's warlike culture and the frequent wars with it's southern rivals. The Period 200B.u to 100b.u allowed for expansion as the old Empires collapsed.
The Roscopin Army consisted of a few professionals, known as the 'Beserkers of Rosco' and a majority of Conscripts. Unlike the the other Empires, Conscripts were required to have weapons and training although training wasn't regulated. These conscripts were better prepared than their Rivals to the south but still outclassed by professional troops.
The Geography of Alversia is of a tropical nature. It possesses many vast palm tree forests and several golden beaches. The extreme north of the country is both mountainous and barren, there are few cities as the temperature is high at ground level and cold in the mountains. The temperature is extremely cold once night falls.
There are few cities in the north and the only major city would be Jallicon with a population of 250,000 people. It is mostly nomads who wander the desert and occasionally travel up the mountains. There is one main river and it flows from the mountains into the sea in the north of the country.
In the South of the Country, the climate is tropical and midday temperatures can get very high, nights are also quite warm and the area enjoys a wet season from September to November. There is also a dry season from April to August that often results in little rainfall. Despite this the area remains popular with tourists. The area is famous for the golden beaches and massive holiday villages specially built for the tourists.
There are three main rivers in the area, the first being the River Kwail which runs through the centre of Illesia. It is a beautiful turquiose blue colour that boosts warm temperatures during the summer months. The second runs to the east of the capital and is not as beautiful as the River Kwail, instead it boosts dramatic waterfalls and tumbling torrents. It is a popular tourist spot. The last river runs from the centre of the country to the western side and is the dirtiest of all the rivers due to mass farming along its banks.
There are a few main cities in the south, the main one being the capital Illesia with a population of 25,000,000. There are also two other main cities in the south; Dragornia with a population of 5,750,000 and Sedversia with a population of 4,500,000. The rest of the outlying area is farmland or woodland with the occasional town or villiage breaking the landscape up.
There are five main provinces in Alversia and they are as follows:
The central province is actually based on the South coast and includes the Capital Illesia, which is also the Provincial Capital. The area enjoys sunshine for most of the year with occasional rainstorms during the wet season. The area possesses many beaches and is the main area for tourists.
The Eastern province is located on the East Coast and is remarkable for its vast palm tree forests. There are few people who live here except for a few Nomads in the jungles. Alversia has strict lumber laws and as such has been able to save the majority of her trees. The main industry in the area is the lumber-industry.
This is most northern region of the country and is famous for its barren landscape. It has few cities or towns and is mostly populated by nomads who live in the plains. The region is also home to the Fredani mountain range which is well-known by tourists and often visited as part of a day-trip from the south.
This area is well known for its vast fields of corn and other crops. As such the land is mostly flat and is completely dominated by small farms and large plantations. Most of the populace here live in smal farming communities and visits from tourists are rare, although they do occasionally come to sample the culture of the traditional rural area. The main industry is the Farming Industry.
This is the main Province in the south of the country and includes the great golden beaches and wonderful views. The region is famous for its cosmopolitan way of life and is one of the main tourist destinations. There is rarely any rainfall apart from during the spring.
Alversia is a culturally diverse country with many different regions and therefore many different attitudes. The main attitudes will be dealt with Province by Province.
The Central province has the air of a city to most people, as it includes the capital Illesia there is a great metropolitan way of life and as such is like any other city in the world. Illesia is famous for its liberal attitude and take on life. As many of the people here work in factories or in the many different companies, this makes the majority of the Central province people welcome to newcomers and to new ideas. The standard of living in this region is very high. The area is famous for it's artists and Illesia hosts many galleries and art exibitions. There is also a great fondness for opera and the theatre although Cinema is only now starting to make inraods into the people's lives.
There are few people who live in the Eastern Forests apart from the Hallas and Medicvic Nomads, who inhabit the Dense rainforests. They rarely venture out of their jungle home as they live of the land like their ancestors. They are a very superstitious people who prefer to be left alone to live in peace. Other than this there are a few towns where the loggers live and these tend not to welcome visitors to their outposts.
