Iím an introvert so I donít get it, how hard is it to just avoid people seriously, I hate people I donít know why extroverts like them so much.

Despite being an extrovert, I don't really know.

Introvert v Extrovert normally refers to where you get your energy from/the environments you get energetic in, not necessarily what you like or don't like. Introverts typically are happy for their minds and quiet activities to entertain them whereas extroverts tend to like social environments and interactions and feel disproportionately better in those scenarios compared to the latter.

Of course, this all exists on a spectrum.

tl;dr - introverts normally don't hate people. That's something we need to stop spreading around. Angsty and/or reclusive people do. One does not always equal the other.

Then Iím a reclusive introvert, people are annoying and sometimes just plain stupid. I like my own company, playing video games and reading I usually only talk to strangers on the internet like you guys and stay with my own social circle, literally the five friends I had since I was four (thatís 15 years Iíve been friends with them, more like family to me than most of my extended family).

When I don't get to talk to people much I start to get depressed and possibly worse. It's different for everyone. Also I'm super missing my boyfriend and my best friend and sh*t. It's nice to get out and just hear people and see them and sh*t like that, I don't know. Makes you feel alive and happy in my case. Overall this quarantine sucks.

Last day in the office. Got to send a tonne of surface pros to another deployment site and then I'm working from home until further notice.

People don't want to come to head office in London to collect their devices. I wonder why ..........

Tapu Sahar, historically known as Myagdi Island and also called Magarat Island or Little Magarat by foreigners, is one of the 18 hangates of Athara Magarat.

Originally a small village of Thakali traders ruled by the House of Mer-ma-shyang-di (who were, in turn, vassals of Liba Hangate); it became increasingly prominent as the seat of the Nyssic Colonial Empire in Central Argus and Raedlon after it came under Noronican rule following the Tea War of 1821. Initially, an island exclusively inhabited by Thakalis, the Four Kham and a few other Western Kirati tribes plus the Noronnicans, the population became more diverse due to refugees fleeing the Khas-Kirati mainland, which had become mired in various inter-hangate conflicts and multiple wars against foreign powers in the so-called Dark Century (1818 - 1918). Even after the Empire of Magarat took over Myagdi Island from the Noronnicans, it remained relatively unscathed from the devastating Imperial War. Post-Imperial War, the population of Myagdi Island (now called Tapu Sahar) rapidly increased as mainland Magarat (which had barely recovered from the great war) became involved in yet another set of inter-hangate conflicts and the 30th Parallel War against San Montagna.

With a population of 12 million, modern Tapu Sahar is considered to be the most populous city (and the only megacity) in the Isles (by the Magarati government). Out of Athara Magarat's 40 million population, roughly 30% identify as Tapuans or Myagdi Islanders.

Tapu Sahar is a major cultural hub and an international trendsetter in the arts, entertainment, gastronomy, and media. The island city has hosted multiple international events, including TBD events. Tapu Sahar is a leading center for research and development, represented by various universities, most notably the Tapu University.

Etymology


Myagdi Island is the historical name of Tapu Sahar; even though it is still frequently used by foreigners (especially Noronicans) for the island city. Myagdi Island is the Noronnican corruption of "Mer-ma-shyang-di Tapu" (Various Western Kirati languages: "Island With Mystical River").

The modern name Tapu Sahar, brought forth as a de-Nyssicization attempt, literally means "Island City" in many Khas-Kirati languages.

History


TBD as usual

Geograpghy

Demographics


The official Magarati estimation (as of 2020) is that 12 million people live in Tapu Sahar. During the daytime, the population swells by over 2 million as workers and students commute from adjacent areas (especially from sister island city-hangates of New Forest and Tiwe Sivn).

Of Tapu Sahar's 12 million population, approximately 8.5 million are in the working-age (15 - 64), 2 million are retired (65+) and 1.5 million are juveniles (0 - 14).

While the use of Nyssic and Doman is dominant, Tapu Sahar is one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the Isles with nearly 300 languages spoken (and 125 of them being various local Khas-Kirati or Argean Ipachi languages). Only 4.8 million (40%) Tapuans identified as Khas-Kirati or Agrean Ipachi. In terms of single largest ethnic groups (aside from all Khas-Kirati and Argean Ipachi tribes being lumped together as a homogenous group), only the Domans and the Nyssic have crossed the 10% and both of them are the only ethnic groups to have over 1 million people in Tapu Sahar. The Domans comprise around 1.44 million (12%) of the island city's population; followed by the Nyssic at 1.2 million (10%). Nearly 4.32 million (36%) of the current Tapu Sahar population are not affiliated to the 36 Guns of Magarat; which means either they were born outside of the Athara Magarati Federation of Hangates or that their families have not established themselves as "immigrant clans" within the 36 Guns even after two or more generations (before the Imperial War, it was mandatory for new immigrant families to become the youngest clans of any of the guns for protection). Respondents in this category claimed to have origins in diverse nations such as TBD. The remaining 2% identified under the "Others" category.

Education


Tapu Sahar has many universities, junior colleges, and vocational schools. Many of Athara Magarat's most prestigious universities are in Tapu Sahar, including:

1. Tapu University
2. National University of Athara Magarat
3. Ingbadokpa University
4. Urmila Upadhyaya University
5. Tapu Institute of Technology
6. Myagdi Institute of Technology
7. Myagdi Medical College
8. Tapu University of Foreign Studies
9. Myagdi Marine Science College
10. Tapu University of the Arts
11. Agriculture University
12. Electronics University

All of the twelve listed above are public universities that run their courses either in Doman or Nyssic. There are also a few private universities well known for classes conducted solely in Nyssic, including the Noronican University of Management, Nyssic Church University and Magaidh University. D'Šrj (Ja-rah-Jzah) University is the only Doman-language private university in Tapu Sahar.

Tapu Sahar is also the headquarters of the TBDLeagueofTWiUni???CUUni??

Almost all kindergartens, elementary schools and primary schools in Tapu Sahar are operated by local wards or municipal offices; just like in every other Magarati city. The Tapu Hangate Board of Education runs almost all secondary schools. Nonetheless, there are nine prestigious private schools from kindergarten through high school:

1. Nyssic Church School
2. Saint Phalgunanda School
3. TBDschool

International academic and scientific research

Research and development in Athara Magarat are globally represented by several of Tapu Sahar's medical and scientific facilities, including Tapu University and other universities in the island city, which work in collaboration with many international institutions. The University of Townside, in particular, has a major working relationship related to academic and scientific research with almost all Tapu Sahar-based universities. Other partners Isles-wide include TBDs.

Alexander Bay is named after the royal line during Noronica's control over Myagdi Island

MhŤichh District = 'War' District named simply to commemorate the Tea War

Chnafh Islands = 'Three' Islands

NneucheÚi National Park = 'Ancestor' National Park

Also...some Nyssic clans - Ronyld, Bachnan, Moraeg, Aefyr

Read factbook

Need help with demographics, sister cities, etc.

And if any popular culture (movies, books, games, etc) in your nations are set in this city or mention it.

Also, since Xrevaro no longer exists on map, I have decided to go Roendavar.

My people are now called the Oelasthiriasi and they are a branch of Roendavar's Protacist faith. Pagans gotta stick together. My branch will basically a mix of Dharmic faiths and what the Romans tried to do with Greek gods.

If you want to ask how this happened...Here's the map of AM in 1 AD. We were Roe's little colony back then.

Might as well give them one of those "I've been to Vegas" paperweights instead. Way cheaper

Can any of y'all explain how, when I answered an issue allowing extradition of arrested criminals back to the country they committed the crimes in, affects only civil rights and makes them drop a level but political freedom is untouched?

I can put down district names and make the map feel like more of a map of a mega-city once you have looked over this map first to see if it looks good:)

I tend to avoid people as well in normal circumstances and I'm not a chatter. It's just the notion that it's now mandatory to avoid them that makes me want to leave my house and chat to random people until they slither away or whatever people do these days. Also I had tons of geofiction (NS and other) plans for when this actually happened, but now that it happens, my mind seems to be on a lockdown itself. Very annoying! :)

True; doesn't help that I arranged for myself and my team to get i7 Surface Book 2s instead.

Also Athara Magarat, here is a map of Myagdi Island as if it was in Google Maps, major highways, smaller roads, airports, district names and other named things as we talked about in telegrams.

Hope this is good!

Thanks a lot. This is awesome.

As for district names...I reckon they would be named after Nyssic, Four Kham or Thakali clans (as is tradition in AM).

Even awesome!

The "Sister Lakes" are considered local holy sites. You even nailed the part about the airport being artificial. And what do those Nyssic names mean BTW?

If it's not anything particular, can they be names of Magarati Nyssic clans? I am in need of Nyssic "clans" as well.

Hmm, it would be hard to edit, but since the city can be split into more divisions, or perhaps a train station/bus station could be named, here are some names:
Ronyld, Bachnan, Moraeg, Aefyr
