Where did you get your nations name and what inspired the backstory of your nation?

Fun stuff, Auruna was originally a weird mix of France, Germonies, and Russia. So the name had a Latin root.
The name came from my inherent obsession of the golden eagle which also led to one of my usernames. So yeah, stolen from the Latin aurum.

ICly - The name Auruna came from Aruzhin. Auruna (ARU: the home of eagles) = auru (eagle) + -na derived from veraunaya (home / place / land)

For the backstory, whatever idea I got while playing games, especially HOI4 and EU4.
