How Were YN's Borders Decided?

Postby Welskerland » Tue Sep 12, 2017 9:40 am

How did your nation get its current borders? Is it based on geography, historical borders, or agreements in a peace treaty, or something else?

Welskerland's borders were based on its tribal days, where each tribe occupied a certain amount of land, and when the country was united, all of their land was consolidated under one government and country. Welskerland also did experience a couple of border changes. The first time was before Welskerland was even a country, where one of the tribes was conquered by an invading nation, but the rest of the tribes managed to fight them off. To this day, that one tribe and its territory remain apart of that other nation. After unification, Welskerland went to war with another country and it agreed to cede some of its territory in exchange for peace.

What about your nation?

Valgora's national borders were decided based on the landscape.

To the north is the ocean and Valgoran controlled islands. Obviously the national land border stops at the ocean.
To the east is mountains and ocean. Obviously the border ends at the ocean.
To the west is mountains which define the border.
The south doesn't really have a border because of the forest to the south. The border more or less stops a few kilometers into to forest.

It's pretty challenging to draw borders in outer space, so for the sake of convenience, everything within 1 light-year of an Imperial colony is assumed to be Imperial space, our foes abiding by a similar convention.

In disputed regions, of course, the borders are being constantly drawn and redrawn by means of plentiful good old-fashioned bloodshed.

We're an island, so our "borders" are determined mostly by volcanoes and the ocean. There are some man-made effects, such as land reclamation and artificial islands on stilts, but they don't account for a significant amount of our land area.

People revolted against their political and capitalist overlords and formed free associations. Those free territories joined together for cooperation and formed present-day Sassony.
The territory is still commonly called East Angria because Angria and Eastphalia were the first two regions to free themselves and join together.
Our borders roughly coincide with a few dialectal boundaries. Sassony contains the Jutlandic Danish, Frisian, West Low German, West Central German, and Low Franconian regional languages. It is bordered by East Low German, East Central German, Upper German, and the langues d'oïl.
At the Behest of the People of East Angria, a.k.a. the Anarchist Commune of Sassony — a free territory covering most of the Low Countries, northern and western Germany, and continental Denmark, with a distinct social anarchist, pacifist, and solarpunk vibe.

The current borders have been drawn by a combination of geography and the machinations of other powers. To the south is the open seas, to the east and west (riverlands and open steppelands, respectively) are our hyper-aggressive neighbours, while the northern borders are covered by mountains and desert.

Today the borders of the Kingdom of Crookfur are determined by the sea as the Kingdom has complete control over the 3 main islands and many smaller islands that it occupies.

Previously this was not the case, particularly on Crookfur's second island, Covenant island, which was home to several different nations that were gradually incorporated into the Kingdom over time, both peacefully and by strength of arms. The Kingdom's border with these neighbouring nations were generally decided by treaty and based on geographic features such as rivers and mountains.

A planning committee of 12 highly esteemed men deliberated for six months and decided that there should be an ocean placed at certain points surrounding the country.

In seriousness though, Alizeria's border (excluding its EEZ) ends when dirt hits water, and the country is an island.
