Principality of Reshmir


Recommended Posts

This looks good! Problem is, this set-up would require a different map than the one Treasurer made for me. This would mean prostrating myself before his map-making awesomeness and pleading for another scrap from his table. :P

Otherwise, it looks very good. I notice you remembered Kiristonia, there, though Valance is spelt as so, not Valence. Great job, though!

Nah, it's actually pretty easy using the map treasurer made. The RL Ocia and Alexandria maps are both pretty crappy, so I'm kinda glad I'm using the maps I have.

I'll get to work on it after I finish revising Alexandria 2004, 2008 and 2009.

Which languages are spoken in that micronation?

Heh. IRL it's English (of course). And English is the lingua franca in my scenario.

But...here is how it stands:

Ethnic groups:

Slavic 55%

Italian 20%

Greek 15%

Albanian 10%

Anglo 5%

Other 5%

Religion

Roman Catholic 50%

Eastern Orthodox 30%

Other Religion 5%

None 15%

So...I guess the languages would be: Serbo-Croatian, Slovene, Montenegrin, Macedonian, Bulgarian, Italian, Greek, Albanian, and English.

Do you some sort of history outline and was it part of the Ottoman Empire?

Also, I'm surprised that there are not more muslims with the Albanians. Does that goes into the 5%?

Yeah, but many are secular-atheist and some are Christian.

Ocia was more or less part of this world's pan-slavic empire, but I suppose it could've briefly been ruled by the Turks.

Ocia though is very staunchly slavic and anti-communist due to its previous rule by communists and its slavic majority.

In terms of Reshmir, it might be helpful to look at this fictional nation/micronation, the Kingdom of Xliponia. It is theoretically located in northern Greece, yet is set up like an small Adriatic/Slavic nation. It contains good statistics, a background history, graphics, culture, language, and all kinds of maps. I would work on it, but I'm still a noob when it comes to scenario creation. This is the link to its wiki page:

http://ib.frath.net/w/Xliponia

Anyway, just a suggestion.
