The City of Pontrath is not only the largest city in Lillorainen, but has also been the fastest growing one in the 19th and 20th century, the reason for it being numerous cities, villages, and hamlets merged into one big city, Greater Pontrath.
Incorporations since 1850:
    1851: Kelk, Rickes, Tetz, Büsenich, Greves, Horn (Ndrt.), Hehle.
    1873: Almelen, Dronningen, Reumagen-Priess, Koldenich, Kanthoven, Hayn-Thorand.
    1892: Sassenwerth, Damme-Uhlheim, Reedt, Köbenscheid, Mechuln, Dünrath.
    1905: Jörzenich, Hanlo, Malmshoven, Freyweiler, Wiedscheid.
    1926: Lumme, Oppenwerth, Grönnard, Estringen, Bornau (Ndrt.), Hinz.
    1931: Frierscheid.
    1939: Madenich, Wittard, Gymirsheim.
    1952: Lademünd, Lünnich, Harringen, Lorchenich, Epperfeld, Sande.
    1966: Moorpesch, Roidepesch, Reischenich.
    1991: Rüdersvorst.
    1997: Neupütz.
Since Lillorainen's geography is currently being overhauled a 'tiny' bit, most information on it posted before December 12, 2018, is not entirely reliable anymore. Until there's a new, proper factfile, everything you might need to know can be found here. Thank you. #RetconOfDoom

Being the world's leading producer of nuclear energy, the People's Republic of Zhouran is known for its highly-impressive nuclear safety record. Every since Zhouran adopted grid-connected nuclear power for peaceful electricity purposes in 1975, the country has never experienced any major nuclear accidents thanks to highly-stringent meticulous practices and safety standards strongly enforced by the National Nuclear Energy Agency, which is subordinate to the Ministry of National Electricity. Even the most minor innocuous incidents are essentially non-existent in the numerous nuclear power plants across the country. No Zhouranese nuclear power plant has suffered from any nuclear meltdown thanks to the high-grade manufacturing and rigorous safety-level of Zhouranese nuclear reactors.

Meanwhile, in regards to maritime nuclear power, the ZPA Navy has a long history of operating maritime nuclear vessels, starting off with the early nuclear submarine classes of the mid-to-late 1960s such as the Type 1155 class of SSNs and Type 1156 of SSNs. The 1970s finally saw the birth of Zhouran's nuclear navy, resulting in more maritime nuclear vessels such as the Type 1971 Shenlun-class SSN and Type 1976 Xinshi-class CVN. Throughout its history of using nuclear-powered vessels, the ZPA Navy has never suffered from any major nuclear accident, not to mention that no Zhouranese nuclear vessel has ever experienced a nuclear reactor failure thanks to the high quality of Zhouranese nuclear reactors. In early 1980, the ZPA Navy introduced the highly-rigorous Maritime Submarine Safety Program, and as a result even the tiniest innocuous incidents onboard nuclear vessels have become extremely-rare and even non-existent thanks to the MSSP.

The nation’s flag has a yellow color on its right side. While many Bunnean speculate this is because of the nation’s large focus on cheese exports, it’s actually just because the flag painter spilled yellow paint on the right side and just went with it.

Apiary One uses metric for just about everything. But we use the Fahrenheit (°F) scale for temperature, because we find it much more logical for daily use such as the weather. For absolute temperatures, we use the Rankine (°R) scale, based on Fahrenheit.
The brainchild of a former war criminal, Apiary One started out as a population experiment. By harnessing free labor, it brought in massive profits to its creator, who used the cash to build up a luxurious capital city and attract foreign investment. This in turn generated more wealth, allowing the nation to develop into a marvelous masterpiece of progress and efficiency. But there's a darker side that they don't want you to see...

In terms of CK2 Mechanics, the Reformed Norden Faith can be explained as thus:
Nature
Unyielding: Largely reformed as a result of a foreign religious occupation and tyrannical Crusader regime, the reformed faith refuses to convert to the Trajan or Hyaran faiths.
Proselytizing: The faithful prefer to bring about their religion by the word and letter, rather than by sword. While combat against heretical old pagans exist, they are rarely sanctioned.
Cosmopolitan: While Hyaran-Norden relations are almost non-existence, Trajans are accepted as a minority in Norden lands under the Fylkirate, as long as they do not attempt to proselytize.


Doctrine
Astrology and Haruspicy: Studying the stars as well as other forms of divination are some of the goðar's many duties.
Equality: Part of the reformation was to bring equality among the two sexes in terms of political and social power. Concubinage as a form of legal relations between freemen in the Norden Lands is accepted, and women can hold any political office a man can.
Ancestor Veneration: Pious and noble ancestors belonging to the age of reformation and before can be venerated as Spirits, or even raised to gods of the pantheon. The only example of the latter would be that of Fylkja Ingrid, who was venerated as a Spirit and later a goddess in her own right after her death.


Leadership
Temporal: The head of the Norden Faith is the Fylkir/Fylkja, who is also the Goði/Gyðja of the Temple of Hermand, the faith's most important holy sight.
The Norden Fylkirate
Fylkja Ingrid || Overview || Religion
It is possible for there not to be any god, or for there to be many of them; but not for there to be only a single god.

Daily News: Ancestor veneration accepted as 'part of the lore' by the Great Moot. | The Fylkirate sanctions raids against the Merchant Republic to liberate Norden slaves. | Battle along the Solan river results in a thousand dead Solaneans. Followers of Magnus solidify claims to all territory South of The Hran River.

The largest cities in every division (except the ones of Central and South Suhurbia) are half on land, half off land. For example, the city of Uguaria, the largest city in North Suhurbia, is a coastal city, but also has a tunnel that links to the underwater part of the city.

Thanks to the creation of military-oriented powered exoskeleton-frames and 2nd gen. Tactical Infantry Armored Suits (full-body powered exoskeleton-suits) for use by the Zhouranese People's Army, there are downgraded civilian-oriented exoskeleton-frames and exoskeleton-suits used within the Zhouranese workforce, with the former being commonly used for physical work such as logistics and construction, while the latter being commonly used in more high-risk occupations such as mining and demolition.

One species of "butterfly" that's native to our nation is in fact not only not a 'true' butterfly, it's not even a member of the same order as those (the Lepidoptera) at all. Instead, it's a member of the order Neuroptera, which mainly contains the Lacewings and Ant-Lions, belonging to the family Kalligramatidae which died out elsewhere millions of years ago but has managed to survive here because one of its food-plants has also persisted...

After ascending to power, it is a tradition that the High Nawab of Shantigara will buy outfits for the members of his Cabinet. In turn, the Rājā (the Shantigara Monarch), will gift the High Nawab a new outfit. However, it is customary for these outfits to be returned once the High Nawab leaves office.

The Synnian isles are connected by chains of artificial islands collectively known as Brimstone Bay. These artificial islands are off limits to civilians with an exception of some larger flatter ones. The reason for this is that most of the other islands house ballistic missile silos, concealed hangars, military shipyards and VLS's. The islands are designed to be rocky and mountainous to obscure the vision of ships. Though the islands are primarily used for missile strikes they are also fully capable of functioning as close range defenses against landing ships or even cruisers and destroyers. Many of the islands have retractable naval guns, AA weaponry, smoke dispensers, torpedo tubes, flamethrowers, napalm piping, chaff, flares and even rails running below the island to ram nearby ships.

In the twenties, life roared like in other countries. Voxija was known for adultery and miscegenation. There are many cases of Australians going to Voxija to marry aboriginals. There was no Prohibition and less crime. Because of the climate, Voxijan fashion designers were the first to adopt the miniskirt. It was deemed indecent by most Voxijans, though.

2. It is mandatory to learn two languages in Xeloncaresia: Rhône and English. Most Immigrants and descendants of immigrants speak three or more languages everyday. The English taught in schools is based on British English.

Every year, Zhouran publishes over a whopping 300,000+ and more scientific papers annually, the highest in the world. Since authors of peer-reviewed scientific papers need cash payments for their work and research, they receive lucrative financial incentives from Zhouran's numerous academic universities and various research institutions. As a result, Zhouranese academic authors each receive a financial award of around a couple of hundred-thousand Zhouranese yuans, or over hundred-thousands and more US dollars, for each research work published.
