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

Death to Nyssics

Booo.

Are there any Eastern Orthodox countries in TWI? I want a significant Orthodox minority in San Jimenez and I need some reason for there to be Orthodox followers in SJ...

Not orthodox but I guess I’m a branch of Protestant

Boo you, remains of imperialism

I think I'm gonna go to one kingdom, small and weak, having to use diplomacy for protection. These weird governments I try rarely work, but who knows, maybe I'll try again. Here's a list:
The OG Democratic Dictatorship(surprise, surprise there was corruption)
A co-government split between French and German-centered people.
A kritarchy, or government made up of judges. That was a crash and burn.
I dabbled a bit in classic syndicalism. But who am I, Jack Reed?

I'm just going to leave this here and see what comes from it.

I think I am going to give up on Belle Ilse en Terre and start over with a new nation, Ktismandrasi.

Hey yall. Sorry I've been kinda absent. I've been sick for about a week now and I'm still feeling under the weather.

Bruh moment.

So how much of TWI has corona? Raise of hands

Bought the last Nintendo switch in the county

I've got this great concept for a game.

You perform the same menial tasks over and over again with very little variation in what you can do every day. There's less than 2 dozen NPCs you can interact with total and the map is not large at all. Your tools constantly break so you frequently have to go on a fetch quest to gather resources to make new ones. The shops have a very small quantity of new items to buy, and there's an achievement system that rewards you for grinding out these basic tasks over and over and over again by giving you a different currency that you can use only to buy a couple other items and recipes the main currency doesn't let you get.

Wait... why do I already have over 30 hours logged in less than a week?

So Finland officially closed the region of Uusimaa under the orders of the Council of State and PM Sanna Marin.

So I honestly don't know can I go back home to Helsinki from Savo. This is fun

Sorry for my long hiatus. How is everybody doing? A lot of stuff is happening and I wish the best for all of y’all and hope that we can all pull through this. Just wanted to say that I am glad to see some old nations here. Also Good luck New Aapelistan

I am feeling bold after after composing a national anthem for Ktismandrasi; I would like to offer what little talent I have to compose a short anthem for anyone, please shoot me a telegram if you are interested and want more information.

Welp, the beginning of a rebuild.

Chuuṣoostee is the official language of the native people of Remodio. The following tables use IPA pronunciations.

Chuuṣoostee uses the word order Subject-Object-Oblique-Verb. Adjectives are before the noun, for most cases except for number placement(i:e first, last)For example, the sentence, "Great Visqua hanged the traitors with barbed wire" would be "Great Visqua the traitors with barbed wire hanged." or "The first dead man was buried in Ghorthiid." would be "The dead man first in Ghorthiid was buried."

Articles include: rhu (the) and buh(a, an)

The word for you is "dzii", us/we is "dziu", and he/she is "dzie/dziei". I is "dzier". Feminine nouns have an "i" at the end of them. For example, a female cook is an "iichyi" whilst a male one is an "iichy". To indicate possessiveness, a "ne" is added at the very end of the word that is possessed, for example, a female cook that you own is called an "iichyine". There are words that also indicate possessiveness, such as his(deeg) and her(mud'), but they still follow the "ne" rule. Past participles use the prefix -ko on the verb. For example, "His cook was dead." in Chuuṣoostee would be "Deeg iichyne kochyaagbuuspooptii.

To make a proper noun into an adjective, it must follow the word that it describes, along with the preposition "hu", often translated as "of." For example, one of Remodio's leading tourist destinations is "Rhu Dejaa hu Bruuit", or "The Grave of Bruuit".

To negate a verb, you simply put sh' in front of the verb(the word for no is shuri). In terms of past-tense negative words, the "ko-" prefix always come before the "sh'-" prefix. For example, in order to say "I wasn't his friend.", it would be "Dzier deeg nuch kosh'dhii."

To make a word, it depends on if it ends with a vowel or a consonant. Words that end with consonants add the suffix "-iez". Vowels add the suffix "-tez". For example, multiple potions would be "jishiez", but multiple periods of time are "pipaapatez"

Numbers
0 = ukpe
1 = guu
2 = braa
3 = 'jembuu
4 = aa'j
5 = 'ziiv
6 = chyii
7 = shiib'
8 = prok
9 = naambii
Double digit and up are just the words put together, Chuuṣoostee keeps it simple. For example, 42,069 would be aa'j-braa-ukpe-chyii-naambii. Fun fact, until 1977, writing numbers in Chuuṣoostee did not use hyphens. Imaging seeing aa'jbraaukpechyiinaambii and trying to pronounce that as a foreigner!

To make a number into an adjective, "-di" is added. First is "ukpedi", second is "braadi", 42,069th is aa'j-braa-ukpe-chyii-naambiidi, etc. The for last is 'zestudi, which is the word for "late" with the suffix -di.

Conjunctions
Buuj = and
Ha = for
Abaha = nor
Grii = but
Vu = or
Criistu = yet
Eeteei = So
