What does AN's Name Mean? (No Factbooks, no sigs)

Guess what AN's name means. No reading of Factbooks. No reading of sigs. That's cheating!

Your name says it all.
The United Egalitarian Republic of Altesia is a nation that rose from the ashes of a brutal and oppressive dictatorship during the bloodbath that was the Great Eblikan War (2381 - 2389 H.D. or 1917 - 1925 A.D.) Since then, the nation has worked hard to make sure that a war on the scale of the Great Eblikan War never happens again, and in the process, has become a benchmark for civil rights and political freedom on the planet of Eyria and it's colonies and dominions across the cosmos.

Google Translate claims Altes is German for "old one", and given the -ia Latin suffix, I'm gonna go on a whim and say it means "Land of the Retirement Homes". Beautiful.

goddamnit

Uh... Coryan sounds like a name... ruda might the native language "land of" suffix... no idea what haffla might mean... maybe it's just a crazy dictator who wanted to name a country after himself? (and lets just say Coryana is the shortened version)

The land of screams
Kalaspia-Shimarata's flag represents the Union between K&S. The dark blue represents the sea and the light blue represents the sky. In Kalashi language considers light blue and dark blue to be different colours. England colonised, and unified K&S, between 1774 and 1953, and English, light blue and dark blue are considered to be the same colour. Therefore, the contrast between dark blue and light blue represents the union, but the differences between K&S where as blue being two but simultaneously one colour represents K&S being two, but simultaniously one entity. The opposite to the symmetry represents the unity and indipendance of K&S, whilst also representing the Kalashi culture of opposite symmetry.KS is 75% Christian, hence the cross.

I'm guessing something related to a Biblical error - in a passage where instead of Moses coming down "in light", he has horns.

Kalas means 'Party' in Swedish and Shima means 'Island' in Japanese

So i guess it's safe to say your name literally translates to Party Island.

Didn't know that. Plus Kalaspia and Shimarata are two countries indipendant countries which united into one, kind of like how England and Scotland united into one.

Before answering, remember that "Kalaspia" and "Shimarata" are two seperate countries that merged into one, kind of like how England and Scotland merged into one. K&S are two different entities, and their names are indipendant of eachother
