History
[UNDER MAJOR RECONSTRUCTION]

Prehistory

Before remains of a massive complex featuring tall EMP towers were found in Westcoast region in 2015, it was thought that Epsilon Tauri 4 was not colonized before Cosmicium. These were eventually traced back to being one of the last structures of an ancient civilization that stopped existing about 200 years ago. As of 2033, more than 1,500 structures of this civilization have been found across the western coast of Cosmicium. Researchers are now looking to decipher the script of the civilization, a difficult task as there are no comparable known scripts to compare to.

Founding

Officially, Epsilon Tauri 4 was colonized in 1998, supposedly because Althanasia was suffering a massive overpopulation and pollution crisis. However researchers have found that not only Althanasia was not suffering from either problem, but that the year of colonization was deliberately altered for unknown reasons.

Thanks to weak security, the real date and reason of the colonization of Cosmicium can be revealed.

COSMICIUM NATIONAL ARCHIVE

Greetings,

It has come to us that you have been requesting an excerpt of "The History of Althanasia and Cosmicium", specifically 14.1-3 (The Colonization of ET4), a book that we generally keep secret due to its sensitive content. Under strict confidentiality, we will provide an encrypted file containing these specific excerpts.

Casimire Alrado,
Prime Minister of Cosmicium

Regions of Cosmicium

Cities
Cosmicium is generally very sparsely populated and extremely dangerous in many areas, and so most people live in larger cities where they are safer. Only the rare adventurer dares to go into the unknown interior of the country. Because of this, the Valenburg region (70M people), contains 8x as many people as the Northern Provinces, Vyros, Helix, Trabannia, The Strip, Oceania, Limica, Vulcanus, Rattlefield, Polaris, Teresinn and Arctica combined (8.8M people).

Most Cosmicians prefer to live in medium-sized cities of 500,000 to 1,000,000 people, and most more populous regions are full of these. Only major trade centers are much larger than that.

Regional capitals though are sometimes unusual. For example, although Bradbury has a population of 7.2 million and perfectly suited for a regional capital, the real capital of the Bradbury region is 100 km to the east with just 3,000 people. The capital of Wanchester region is literally 7 buildings with zero permanent population (and you might have guessed, it's not Wanchester).

Climate
As Cosmicium is a nation spanning the whole planet, it is impossible to determine its climate. However, climate can be determined for regions and cities. For example, the city of Valenburg has a temperate continental climate (Dfb) (despite being located on the coast). Here are some images:

Here's the Central district of Valenburg in summer:

And winter in the same city in a different district:

(if anyone can create a better climate map of Epsilon Tauri 4, just tell me, I will send you the original map)

This is the rough map of climates in Cosmicium:
