Welcome to Bollonich


Overview


The Republic of Bollonich , is a small nation located on the northern side of Rushmore to the east of Græntfjall and the north of Weatherdon. The Republic of Bollonich is sparsely populated with a large proportion of the nation being covered in coniferous forests and arid regions. Bollonich is a highly advanced nation scientifically and economically. 90% of the Bollonischian population are habited on the coasts on the northern side. Bollonich’s capital city Vreton, is a lavish location known throughout the multiverse as the stop for tourists passing by.


Players and Tourists Guidelines


Drug Policy - Bollonich has a relatively liberal drug policy, with marijuana sold throughout the nation. Any drugs that are found in the presence of players or tourists while arriving into Bollonich shall be returned on inspection if the substance is permitted by law. If it is not, the substance shall be confiscated. The presence of such a substance after arrival shall be subject to national law and dependent on the severity of the substance owned.
Alcohol policy - All people above 18 can consume and own alcohol. The last drink can be served at 2 am in the night after which all pubs must close. Identification of your age is required to purchase alcohol and ID maybe required for consumption. The Blood alcohol content for driving is 0.03%, above which a person is not legally allowed to drive.


Transportation


The matches that shall be played across two venues in two cities. The players shall be commuting with the means of airplanes, commercial versions of which shall also be available to tourists. If a person wishes not to avail Bollonich’s airlines, they can use Bollonich’s public transport system with the NCHS, being vastly available. Rental cars or motorbikes are also available however to rent one of these a person will need to display his or her driving license.
For within city commute, a person is welcome to use Bollonich’s underground system of subways, which costs a small fee for tourists. Cycles are also widely available for rent across Bollonischian cities.
For inter city transit a separate option also exists, that of national railways. Some passenger railways are free of cost while others require a small fee, as such trains are owned by privatised companies.


Tourism


If you are travelling to Bollonich, you might want to extend your stay to view some of the beauties here. Fermont is home to the National History Museum where a person new to Bollonich can learn all about our history and have a deeper understanding. Among educational locations such as this, another is the Bollonischian Cultural Centre located in Vreton which has information all about the culture and traditions. Visiting monuments like the Founders Statue located at Marda should be something on your bucket list.
The other major tourist attraction are the beaches and coniferous forests of Bollonich. The northern coast of Bollonich is blessed with a number of beaches and is a tourist hotspot with Kibnoto beach near Vreton being highly famous. The coniferous forests located towards the south eastern side of Bollonich are endowed with a vast variety of flora and fauna. The Great Bollosch Tiger are also found here. The Akusha National Park located near Akusha is the largest national park in Bollonich which receives a large number of tourists every year.


People and Living Facilities


The People of Bollonich are extremely friendly and are willing to help out anyone, however they are also very lawful and don’t like to break the law for anyone or anything. They can converse in English or the Bollonischian native language. The people speak nicely, however if you enter a political discussion with a Bollonischian don’t expect them to be nice to you as Bolloischians are highly passionate about politics and anything remotely related to it.
If you are visiting Bollonich, you will need a place to stay, and you could avail the 5 star Government line of hotels presented by the Bollonischian Department of Hotels. To get a room in any of these hotels you will need to produce your ID, either digitally or physically. The locals shall also be able to point you to the local home stay or such other places. All hotels and home stays are Government approved for safety, and other facilities.


Sporting Culture


The Bollonischian people are highly passionate about sports, and you are bound to find a following for each and every sport. The most popular sport by far is football which is nearly followed by all sports fans, which also includes some of the most passionate fans ever. The rivalry between Vreton United and Vreton City is the most famous and revered among all. It has also led to the phrase, “If you see two people fighting they must be United and City fans.” Not a very elegant phrase but a phrase nonetheless.
The second place is held by two sports, mainly cricket and tennis. Cricket is a sport that is either loved or hated by most Bollonischians, and has a fair number of people from both camps. Tennis a sport mainly enjoyed by casual sports lovers and normal people, generally seen as a sport of the rich people.
Volleyball manages to hold a dear place in sports fans of Bollonich, especially following our deep run in the Olympics and our national teams' victory at the World League. The domestic scene also receives much popularity due to the influence of big businesses which has allowed the teams to sign some of the best foreign and domestic talents. This has facilitated the Bollonischian teams in making deep runs into the VCL on its comeback.


Host Cities and Stadiums


Vreton - Vreton is the largest city in Bollonich and also serves as the capital of Bollonich. The city has become one of the most developed cities in the regional proximity, and is by far the most luxurious city in Bollonich. The presence of a beach and other great tourist spots nearby makes it a hotspot for visitors visiting Bollonich.
The Vreton City State Indoor stadium is a world class facility for indoor sports, having hosted the VCL and the WorldLeague, last year around. Having a capacity of 25,000 people its perfect for hosting world class volleyball matches.
This stadium will host the first two matches on the list of fixtures for Group B.

Fermont - Fermont is a north-western coastal city which severed as the capital of Bollonich prior to the switch to Vreton. It’s almost on par with Vreton in terms of facilities and the sports culture is much more rich to that of Vreton, as Fermont is seen as the home of lots of sports such as tennis, cricket, handball and volleyball have all found homes here.
The Kings’ Dome is a lavish indoor stadium facility constructed by the Kings of Fermont franchise to play their home games at in collaboration with the ASG state and Fermont district governments. It is also a popular tourist destination even when games are not on as it contains the Museum of Volleyball within its state of the art infrastructure. This stadium can house a maximum of 20,000 people.
This stadium will host the 3rd and 4th matches on the list of fixtures for Group B.

Maihar - Maihar is also a north western city located slightly more inland than the coastal cities. It’s an important location for the Bollonischian economy as it serves as the headquarters of multiple companies due to the low tax rates of Tentonia. Sporting culture is less prominent here however due to multiple investors it does have two teams from the city currently competing in the Bollonischian Volleyball League.
The Jenner Stadium is the home stadium of the Maihar Warriors, with a housing capacity of 10,000. Despite not being the largest in terms of numbers, facilities of the stadium are of equal level to the others, providing facilities of the highest quality for a fabulous experience spectating the VWE.
This stadium will host the 5th and 6th matches on the list of fixtures for Group B.

Kingdom of Hispinas
Reino de Hispinas | Hispinasko Erreinua | Kaharian ng Hispinas | Gingharian sa Hispinas


Hispinas, with official name of Kingdom of Hispinas, is a nation state located in the continent of Terranea in Eastern Rushmore, and has an estimated population of around 27 million inhabitants, the nation has land and maritime borders with several nations, with Szavoda to the west, a portion of land claimed by Nuevo Caracas to the south, and a maritime border with Pridnestrovia in Pavola to the west. The nation's capital, Mandrid, is located in the central portion of the nation, but the largest city is Cebuenas in the eastern portion.

Image


Etymology

Hispinas' name came from a the union of "Hispania" and "Filipinas", two major ascendants of people currently living in the central and eastern parts of the nation. There were references to a nation called "Hispania y Filipinas", but Hispino historians refute the claim and consider the entity an estranged, separate one from the current inception of the nation.

Administrative Divisions

Hispinas is divided into twelve autonomous provinces, each with a designated capital city. Historians consider three major regions of the nation, with the areas in the western portion being called "Basko Errepublika", due to the high influence of Basko culture and heritage in the three westernmost autonomous provinces, Basko da Gama, Iparbasko, and Ekialdekobasko. The eastern portion of the country is called "Republica Catarungia" due to the four autonomous provinces closely linked with Catarung culture and heritage, and with their flags showing the five orange-white horizontal bars which represent the Catarungs. The remaining independent autonomous provinces are normally called "Independientes", with one of the five states having an increasingly large Rusko influence in the province - Nuevo Transnistria.

Below is the list of Autonomous Provinces and their capitals:

Autonomous Province     Capital                      Flag  
Basko da Gama Vallezul (Haranurdina) Image
Iparbasko Seviguio (Mendihegalean) Image
Ekialdekobasko Haranbehera Image
Castillo de Mandrid Mandrid Image
Calanorte Punta de Malklan Image
Magdalena Vigano Image
Mesetasur Piedramarilla Image
Nuevo Transnistria Mascardo (Maskagrad) Image
Catarungia Cebuenas Image
Communitat Azucena Lirio Image
San Felipe Felipamerigo Image
San Guadalupe Murosur (Parilsabagatan) Image

Image

Image


Ethnic Groups

As highlighted in the administrative divisions section, there are four major ethnic groups for the inhabitants of HIspinas. The majority of the Hispino populace has Hispano ethnicity, especially in the central provinces and some in the eastern portion. These Hispanos have Spanish as their primary language while a certain percentage of Hispanos can understand both Spanish and either Basque, Cebuano, or Filipino language. The next highest percentage of the total population is Basko, who has Basque as their primary language. The next is the Catarungs which have Cebuano as their primary, and lastly, the Ruskos in most cities and towns in Nuevo Transnistria where Russian is primarily spoken. A minority of Hispinos living in Magdalena and Murosur are native Filipinos which uses Filipino language as their primary language.

Religion

Hispinas is considered as a secular state, with Catholicism being the most prevalent religion in the nation. Around 84 percent of the Hispino populace are Catholics, with 10 percent being Orthodox Christians, and 4 percent being others such as atheists, or pagans.



How to get to Hispinas

Air transport is the main means to get to Hispinas, unless you are coming through the land borders at Szavoda, or the territories claimed by Nuevo Caracas. The main airport at Mandrid, Mandrid - Torres de Castillo International Airport (MTC), is the main gateway of the nation, and a multimodal transportation station is located near the airport where city and provincial buses stop and go to fetch passengers to go around the country. There are a multitude of expressways from Mandrid to neighboring places such as Vallezul, Vigano, and Piedramarilla. Aside from the primary international airport in Mandrid, a secondary international airport in Cebuenas is also used to cater to incoming international traffic, as well as the international port in downtown Cebuenas.

Locations and Arenas

Three locations has been nominated by the Royal Hispinas Volleyball Federation (FRVH) for the matches of the VWE 13, with two matches held each location per matchday, one in the afternoon, and one in the evening.

Mandrid - in the capital Mandrid, the national arena is being used as the venue, Palacio de Reino de Hispinas, which was the sole venue used for basketball matches for the national team, and recently, the King of Hispinas allowed usage of the arena for volleyball matches. WIth a capacity of 23,871, it is the largest indoor arena in Mandrid, and in Hispinas. The first two listed matches are held here in Mandrid, as well as one of the quarterfinal games and the third place playoff.

Cebuenas - Being the second city from Mandrid, Arena Telebuenas (capacity 14,762), Cebuenas is tapped as the second city to host VWE games. The third and fourth listed matches as well as the Hispinas side of the semifinals will be held here.

Vallezul - As a Basko-dominated city, Vallezul is awarded as the third city to host VWE matches, given over Vigano due to the latter's proximity to Mandrid. Haranurdina Kiroldegia (capacity 9,546) hosts the last two listed games as well as a quarterfinal match.

This is once again a women’s team, which reflects in part the weak state of men’s volleyball in Græntfjall. This is perhaps surprising as the “land of the frost giants”, pumping out Big Fucking Græntfjallers in everything from football and basketball to handball and water polo – but then that’s the point, there’s simply too much competition for talent, and few tall men would choose a relatively niche sport when ample opportunities exist in other games. But with the women’s basketball and handball scenes lagging, a stronger talent pool seems to have emerged among the women.

This is a broadly similar Net Wolves squad to the one that competed at the Olympics and VWE12 two years ago [in Græntfjaller time]. A key player is 19 year old Nyagũthiĩ Wanjirsdóttir, of Kijani extraction, is the first black person to ever represent Græntfjall in international sport. The 2.01m teen is a prodigious talent and quite raw, but the success Anney Rómansdóttir had last time has motivated coach Nico to take a gamble on her. Elsa, being groomed as Veronika’s replacement, can be expected to see increased playing time now (they will wear green while the rest of the team wears blue-and-white).

Chromatik Volleyball Roster
Head Coach: Paul GRANDERSON (44)

Starters:
Setter: #4 Nancy GERMAIN (27), ZMVC - 6 ft 11 in
Outside Hitter: #18 Samuel JUNG (22), LDVC - 6 ft 7 in
Opposite Hitter: #11 Lance GERARD (28), UTVC - 6 ft 8 in

Middle Blocker: #1 KIM Do-Ya (20), UTVC CAPTAIN - 6 ft 9 in
Libero: #17 Nancy NILES (23), UTVC - 6 ft 5 in

Bench:
Setter: #31 Marseille VICERO (20), LDVC - 6 ft 8 in
Outside Hitter: #20 Megan SUISHAM (21), WTVC - 6 ft 4 in
Opposite Hitter/Middle Blocker: #22 Allyson GANDORF (23), ZMVC - 6 ft 7 in
Middle Blocker: #29 Kenny SINGLER (25), MHVC - 6 ft 8 in
Libero: #4 Gregory ISSIL-JOBAR (25), CCVC - 6 ft 7 in
Utility: #15 Sinclair HWANG-JONES (24), ZMVC - 6 ft 5 in
With the expansion of the Chromatik Volleyball League to Twelve Teams, this is the best volleyball roster the country has ever seen. Leading the way is Kim Do-Ya, the youthful phenom that's led the way for Urrheddiao Thunder Volleyball Club, leading the league in blocks. The actual Captain of the squad is the Libero, Nayncy Niles, whose artful digs have become almost commonplace; she sets the tone for the squad's tendency of defense first.

On the attack, Nancy Germain is the best Setter on the team, often used for that ball to set up the score. Then, right-handed Samuel Jung from the left and left-handed Lance Gerard from the right take care of business. Jung is likely to hit directly at people while Gerard prefers to aim at spots. It's an interesting squad.

Off the bench, look for the likes of Sinclair Hwang-Jones to enter whenever anyone is in trouble; Allyson Gandorf hits powerfully from the side, while Megan Suisham has finesse. If needed, Gregory Issil-Jobar can fill in for Niles.

The team's goal is simple - just make it to knockout rounds. But.. 8 out of 26 is going to be rough.

Once again, Atheara sparks some slight controversy with fielding an all womens team for the 13th Volleyball Expo. Though, this has a reasonable justice. Women players in Atheara are just better than men players. It's just a simple fact. Lyna Grezna - Keylahaven has learned on how to be a proper coach, but she has never experienced coaching directly. The objective of this tournament? To not finish last. That was all what the state asked for of this team, just to not finish last in this Expo. They are sure they can do it.

And as for the players, tough luck. Despite the fact that the women players are better, there is no volleyball league for either gender, which made it difficult to compare skill level and ratings. But with proper counting, reviewing, and analyzing, these were the best female players Atheara had, which was true in the sense that they were better than the best male players analyzed. Can they prove themselves enough?

Quebec and Shingoryeo Men's and Women's National Volleyball Teams - VWE 13


The Royal Quebecois Volleyball Federation, in continuation of its practice also shared by Basketball Quebec (BQ) and Quebecois Handball Federation (QHF), is proud to continue its practice of sending mixed teams with expanded rosters to international competitions, even as the QOVO.1 leagues gender-separated. In terms of who the team plays, the RQVF maintains a different policy than BQ, who operates a 16-member roster updated every matchday, and will maintain a straightforward policy:

  • Quebecois men will play against male teams. In case there is no specified team due to lack of roster in past (generally counted as tournaments VWE 9 onwards), or there is a mixed team that mostly consists of male players, the male team will play.
  • Quebecois women will play against female team. If there is a mixed team that mostly consists of female players, the women's team will play.
  • In case of mixed or nongendered gender teams, the RQVF will send a dualsex team.

Quebecois Volleyball In Nutshell

Alongside (ice) hockey and basketball, Volleyball's considered one of the three indoor jewels of the Quebecois winter sports. It is one of few countries in the Multiverse where both men's and women's indoor volleyball have remained highly popular, and the QOVO.1 and QOVO.2 leagues sees fairly even television ratings and attendance figures among both sexes.

Unlike the basketball teams, the volleyball teams maintain separate heights, with the women being slightly taller than average (OOC: compared to RL, that is) and men having roughly average heights, and the RQVF competition policies reflect this. The parity of talent and international success shared between the Quebecois men and women, as well as the fact the two national team programs had played against each other for most part, means that there is less need and even lesser need to double-squad the benches.

That said, this version of Grim Reapers is no different than most of their top 10 opposition in their ability to ride the benches, and will actively use the substitutions where needed. One may argue that is where their strengths lie - consistent depth - but that may also be a different word for 'lack of a clear best 7' (see the each team info).

For this cycle of the Volleyball World Expo, the Royal Quebecois Volleyball Federation have taken an aggressive measure to review their roster, mostly due to the 2051 Quebecois Commonwealth Games being held on the home soil right after the olympics. For this edition of Grim Reapers, this had meant that some veteran members from past (no key players though, most of key players will be playing in both) were left out of contention in favour of playing them there. While vast majority of the team have stayed the same, with those marked with an * has been given to those who will be making their VWE debuts, either on the 12-man roster or as an alt), the slight difference in personnels and starting lineups for the Quebecois men and the women should provide this team enough of a challenge that the RQVF hope to respond well.

OOC Note: With the last part, it's mostly based on how the Asian Games, regional games that matter a lot to many Asian nations, are held right after the FIVB World Championships. How the Asian Games are viewed by volleyball federations depend on each nation - the Japanese rarely send their best, the Koreans prioritise Asian Games over World Championships (a matter I find to be tragic and short-sighted), and the Chinese depending on each quad schedule (In 2014 Chinese women sent second-teamers, a bulk of who became part of the gold medal-winning team in Rio 2016, while they sent full squad in 2018).




Quebecois Men - Life Goes Along

Entering his third straight Volleyball World Expo as the manager, Pierre-Stephane Jobin has named the Quebecois men's team as they look to continue the team's rising form in the international competition, especially following the gold-medal performance by the Under-25 team. For most part, Jobin's been fortunate to return most of those who had taken part in the past national teams, with eleven players from the last VWE team, and nine from the Olympic team coming back to the 19-player entry that includes 7 alternates. The lone exception, Middle Blocker Mathieu Ethier-Leblanc, was left out of the national team after solid two-year period, where he was most recently selected to the QOVO.1 first team, due to a knee surgery that will keep him out for first half of the QOVO.1 season with Shawinigan Skywalkers.

For most part, the team's basic bones have remained the same under Pierre-Stephane Jobin, with Ahn Seung-Min continuing as the team captain and the team built around three locker room leaders in Ahn, Zackaël Lapierre, and Byeon Jeong-Wook. With that said, the three new additions are ones to note on their own right. Middle Blocker Sung Han-Yong, was one of the last to have been left off of the national team training camp for the last VWE. Since then, he has become one of the best middle blockers in the country, being named the best Middle Blocker in last year's Olympics tournament and Quebecois Intercollegiate Sports MVP over the last 12 months. It remains to be seen on whether Sung will be able to beat out Gye Joo-Seong, Guy Tille-Nadon and Dong-Joon Etchemin-Wakan for the second starting spot in this position, but his footwork alone should be able to generate solid blocks in the middle blocker group that has gotten better over time.

As for the other two newcomers to this Quebecois men team in setter Jin Chang-Wook and utility hitter Benoit-Antoine Aplin, they are expected to strongly contend for starting minutes as well. Benoit-Antoine Aplin, the pin who can play both positions, is undersized but makes up for it with his spike height (350cm!) and magnificent power, and he is expected to compete with Todor Asparuhov for the starting opposite after Ahn Seung-Min eventually retires in near-future. Jin Chang-Wook, mercurial setter who was named the Olympic tournament MVP last summer in Bunjil, Electrum, is another character of his own, but we'll talk about that right below. As for rest of the team, most of the big names return- Libero Zackaël Lapierre, who returns for his fifth straight tournament, is once again the sole libero on the 12-man roster, while all-arounder Alanis Hair-Lewis and explosive Ivan Stankic, whose overhead spikes are a treat, are expected to start on the left side. Byeon Jeong-Wook once again returns as the starting middle blocker, and while he has gotten slower in steps over the years, he is expected to be relied upon as the team looks to test Tille-Nadon, Gye and Sung as the second blocker.

In terms of storyline for this team, the most notable one will be at the setter position, not because of competence but because of the depth. Benedict Jeon returns for his third straight VWE, as the 28-year old has played well for both Perce and the Grim Reapers for over half a decade now. While he has not been a classical Quebecois men's setter in any mould, preferring to set high and reliant upon a clear opposite, he's a proven winner and is going to be named starter for position. Still, the handle could easily turn around, especially with the arrival of Jin Chang-Wook. Jin, the defending olympic tournament MVP last summer, is a shorter setter with higher ceiling. After his indomitable performance with Queen's College and the Olympics, he signed with Vreton Bulls of Bollonich, where he has starred ever since. For long time, he has been expected to be a potential superstar, and after having won the olympic gold, it intrigues the Quebecois public on how Jin, whose temper and tendency to set quick and low are well known, could challenge the starting position. If all works out well, and if Benedict Jeon struggles, this could possibly be a tournament where he breaks out.

Quebecois Women - Questions Continue

For most part, the same story of keeping up with their reputation continues from the Grim Reapers' women, as they return to face strong competition in women's volleyball, where there is no shortage of elite to world-class competition known to them (HUElavia, Mytanija, Cassadaigua, Baker Park, and Siovanija and Teusland are generally those the Quebecois keep in alarm, following the federation issues currently in place in Banija). Grim Reapers' legend Kim Yu-Jin once again returns to coach the Grim Reapers women, and her squad returns most of the major core that had beaten all but one of their international rivals over Kim's tenure as the Grim Reapers coach. Keep in mind- they have yet to beat HUElavia, their achilles' heel. This is still a fairly young squad, even with their relative experience, and with the '9th trio' of Marinne Veronneau, Alexanne Bayley and Nadine-Erin Page not retiring from the sport anytime soon (national team would be a different story though), life should go on as usual for Team Quebec.

Alexanne 'Lexie' Bayley returns as the Grim Reapers' women's captain. The 31-year old, who plans to retire from the national team after this cycle, has never really been a dominant player due to weaker power on her spikes, but more than makes up for it with libero-like defence, great block height and leadership. She is expected to be succeeded as the team captain by 22-year old Yang Soo-Gyeong, who is universally viewed as the icon of the Quebecois women's team. The outside hitter, whose trademark spike is a cross on a deep angle, is viewed by many as the next 'Brittany Veronneau', and is expected to contribute heavily on both offence and defence, especially back row defence.

On the opposite side of the pins, we have a couple of strong options in Natalie Wesoloski-Okafor and Natalia Horakcova. Wesoloski-Okafor had a successful breakout tournament last WVE when she scored 26 and 18 points in quarterfinal and semifinals victories over Cassadaigua and Mytanija, and her record-breaking season this year, when she scored 541 points in the QOVO.1 season, seems to suggest the trajectories. That said, while the opposite has performed at otherworldly level at times, Natalie does have tendency to commit errors at various stretches (OOC: usual example I think of it is Paola Egonu - everybody knows she's world-class opposite but she did have a poor olympic tournament), and it is expected she be substituted at times with Natalia Horakcova, shorter, faster opposite with much more powerful swing.

Unlike the men's team, Setter is the weak spot of this team, which coach Kim, the setter from the 2030 Novonaya-Provinsk team that won the gold medal, has said over and over again. Kim Yu-Jin made it no secret that with Karina Benn Fernandez's retirement after the last VWE, they will have to build their team around younger setters, with the leading candidate being Chae Sang-Heui. Chae, who returns for the third VWE, is the best setter this country has after spending past two, impressive seasons with CSKA Quebec, where she used the team's strength on height well. But it is clear to anyone that Chae's not been at the level we've seen from Naloe Miro (setter from the 2020 Centralis-Nassau Bay team that won gold), coach Kim, or the legends of 1980s or 1990s. Chae is expected to face lots of competition from Marissa Donovan, a veteran whose reliability with Kingston drew the technical staff's attention over the QOVO.1 season, or Elisabeth Rousseaux, a major prospect with her love of feeding the middle blockers. Huge part of this Team Quebec's performance will come down to how well the setters perform over the course of the term.

As for the rest, most of the key names return. Both starting middle blockers in Erin MacDonald, powerful blocker, and Marine Veronneau, an all-arounder who has singlehandedly led Winnipeg Winterhawks to an unlikely QOVO.1 Final run in upsets over both Montreal Koreana and CSKA Quebec, return. Ekaterina Kaganovich is a young, promising middle blocker who is expected to succeed Veronneau in due time, while new additions in Nancy Krief-Livingston (good location) and Monika Dubrowska (height and power) are ones to watch in their own right. And of course, to no one's surprise, Nadine-Erin Page returns as the team's libero. Page is often left underrated due to Yang and Bayley's presence on defence, but her ability to set the ball is a crucial asset for the team that likes to set the passes fast and at any direction, and her leadership remains important to this team as well, especially with Bayley struggling with injury at various points.

WVE 13 Preview

Volleyball is a growing sport in Chromatika. The Chromatik Volleyball League expanded to twelve teams this past season, with teams now in Z'ai'ai, Urrheddiao, Chromia, Lanar, Myana, Wirr Tsi, Sanar, Alnio, Lhor, and Eyrods, it's a sport that is definitely gaining some momentum. Attendance has averaged to over 3,000 per match in the last season, which is a significant increase from the sub-1000 average in the inaugural season.

Volleyball has also become recognized as an official sport sponsored by both the Chromatik High School Athletics Association and the Chromatik Collegiate Sports Association, joining the likes of football, gridiron football, basketball, baseball, and select track and field events. It is reportedly the aim of Chromatika to become a top ten team in the multiverse and contend for titles in the next few World Volleyball Expos.

Of course, the hardest part about the World Volleyball Expo is getting out of the Group Stage. Only four out of thirteen teams will make it, and the list of teams ranked higher than Chromatika include Kohnhead, Mytanija, Siovanija and Teusland, Abanhfleft, Hispinas, and Kriegiersien. This means that despite being the thirteenth ranked team in the world, Chromatika are seventh in their group. With such a narrow field for the playoffs, Chromatika will have to massively overperform in order to get to the Quarterfinals.

Which players will have to be on top of their game? Nancy Niles, the Libero and spiritual head of the squad; the duo of Samuel Jung and Lance Gerard, the main offensive threats, and Nancy Germain, the team's setter who will be backed up by Marseile Vicero.

It will be difficult to see just how far this team will go.

Adaikesians' 1st competitive international match will be against the defending champions

For UAD national volleyball team coach Kennedy Glass, it is always the hardest when you're joining an international competition for the first time. "Most especially the first matchday, as it will gauge how we are performing in international volleyball," Glass added.

But when you're up against the defending champions in the first match of your first international tournament, then what could be more challenging?

Group Stage Matches for United Adaikes:

Matchday 1 vs. HUElavia (1)
Matchday 2 vs. Commonwealth of Baker Park (7)
Matchday 3 vs. BYE
Matchday 4 vs. Bollonich (17)

STYLE OF PLAY / ESTILO DE JUEGO
The setters will try to confuse the opponents as much as possible using various attackers and rarely uses the same attacker in consecutive set plays. Back row attacks are rare given that the team has not practiced this yet. Fraire's favorite is a one-two quick with her middle blockers, while Fontan's preferred target is a cross court set to their opposites.

In Vreton, Bollonich...

Lyna Grezna - Keylahaven, the coach for the Athearan team participating in the Volleyball World Expo 13, is nervous. Although she has learned everything about coaches and has one some forms of management, she has never really done any coaching by herself, and now she has to do some coaching herself. This womens team Atheara sent had no cohesion or synergy, so how was Atheara going to fare?

All she knew is that Atheara were going to play unranked Ardengard on the first matchday, so that was maybe a slight relief. She thinks that maybe a warm-up and an introduction to the team was needed, since, uh, they were taken here very unexpectedly. Plus, it just seems kind of rude to take some volleyball players and them not knowing what they were supposed to do, they are in a foreign country afterall. Lyna opens the door to the training arena, and is met with the full team, already in their jerseys for training. She had something to explain.

"Gah, finally someone who can explain what the hell is going on?!" The starting setter, Karla Enaverich screams after seeing Lyna enter the room. "Calm down Karla, there has to be an explanation to this." Karla's best friend, Reyova Reina says to her. The others also spew forth their opinions, but one player, Eliza Monveret, just nods. "So, she is the deaf one... Who would send a deaf player again?" Lyna thought to herself. Anyway, she was getting offtrack, so she had to explain what was going on in sign language and also speaking as well.

"You are gathered here, as you will represent Atheara for the 13th World Volleyball Expo hosted by Bollonich and Hispinas. We are currently in Vreton, Bollonich. This city is where you will play your first two matchdays, against unranked Ardengard, then 4th ranked Cassadaigua." Lyna says calmly, and also says in sign language. Everyone just, blanked out when they heard the name Cassadaigua. "Hold on, you are saying we are in Bollonich for a volleyball tournament, and we have to play Cassadaigua on matchday 2?!" Karla asks whilst screaming.

"Yes, and Karla, please behave yourself." Lyna simply says. "But, why an all womens team?" Leyna da Cresta, the bench middle blocker asks. "You are the best players we have, i am not joking. Even the best male player was worse than the worst female player here, which is Eliza. No offense. Now, i want you all to start training as you all would do, and we are not going back to Atheara until this tournament is over. So, all that i ask you is to just get along and play volleyball." Lyna says with voice and signage, then leaves the room. "Now maybe i should get coffee for everyone." Lyna says outloud to herself.

During Training...

"Who does she think herself to be?!" Karla asks whilst fuming. "Holy shit calm down Karla, we should just follow her orders." Reyna says to her whilst holding Karla's hands. "Ugh fine, the sooner we can go home, the better." Karla says. "Oh just shut up Karla, let's get back to training. Ceraline, throw us a ball will you?" Reyna says and immediately asks Anna Ceraline, the starting libero. "Just a second!" Ceraline says back. Reyna just hopes that Karla wouldn't do what she did back when they were 16.

"Hey Eliza, how are you faring right now?" Erisa Van Denerie asks with signage. "Doing absolutely normal, why do you ask?" Eliza asks back with sign language. "Just asking since it's been, you know, 4 years since your incident. Anyways, let's get back to training. We don't want to piss off the coach based on how she talked and how she looked." Erisa says with signage. "Alright, let's just get back to training. I am thirsty." Eliza answers back to Erisa's statement about training and the 4th year after that incident with signage.

Training was done later on, they got the coffee Lyna decided to buy, and everyone went back to their hotel rooms. Hoping for a good start is vital and crucial. Especially since the road won't be very easy.
Still in the process of Retconning, but i actually made some progress. Proud to be part of Anaia!
Jenna Raven Cup I Champions!
Third Place in the Baptism of Fire 75!
Third Place in Group 4 of WCQ 89 as a Pot 7!

Bollonischian National Volleyball Team

Bollonischian Volleyball Union


The Bollonischian National Volleyball Team has come quite a long way since our appearance at the 12th Volleyball World Expo. The 12th Volleyball World Expo was the first tournament the national team took part in, in the international foray of Volleyball. However since that experience the team has seen major improvements in lots of departments. The team managed to finish in 7th place on the table last time around putting ourselves right up there with some of the best volleyball sides in the world. Bollonischian Volleyball didn’t stop there however, the national team also took part in the World League where we just made it to the knockouts before defeating Quebec and Shingoryeo in the final to clinch our first Volleyball title. This however was just warm up heading into the most important competition of them all, the Olympics. We knew this was the stage for some of the best volleyball sides in the world and we were among them. The Mens’ team had a fabulous run making the semifinals where we faced the Quebecois once again. This was a rematch of the World League final with both teams desperately looking to secure a win and a place in the final. This was a very crucial match for the side but there was also a sub plot going on side by side as Jin Chang-Wook of Quebec and Shingoryeo had just signed with Bollonischian franchise Vreton Bulls. This just made this titular semifinal match carry even more weight. In the end it was the Quebecois who came out on top denying us a final appearance at the Olympics as they extracted revenge for their defeat in the final of the World League. We however managed to bag the bronze medal at the Olympics with the mens’ volleyball team while the women were way unluckier being eliminated very early on in the knockouts.
On the domestic side of things, Bollonischian franchises were very successful in the Volleyball Champions’ League as both the Karvian Tigers and the Vreton Bulls made the semifinals where the Tigers were eliminated by Mytanar team Litala ’93. The Bulls however made the finals where they were eventually defeated by the team that defeated the Tigers.

The past two years have been tremendous for volleyball in Bollonich as success on the international stage has massively boosted the popularity and attention received by volleyball in Bollonich. Not only has it become much more popular but there have been massive improvements in facilities. Hosting serves as a vital chance to further assist in the growth of the sport and also serves a good economic opportunity. The 17th ranked Bollonischian team will be looking to make the most of playing at home and potentially rise higher in the rankings.

Gatchingerrak Union Men's and Women's National Volleyball Teams - VWE 13


The Joint Federation of the Gatchingerrak Union of Rushmori Nations (JFGURN), in continuation of its practice also shared by their rival and fellow commonwealth federation in the Royal Quebecois Volleyball Federation (RQVF), is happy to send the mixed teams with expanded rosters to international competitions, even as the Gatchingerrak Superliga leagues remain gender-separated. To maintain consistency across all nations (Banija being an exception, due to their historical precedence on sending only the women's national team), the JFGURN maintains and will maintain a straightforward policy no different than that of the RQVF:

  • Union men will play against male teams. In case there is no specified team due to lack of roster in past (generally counted as tournaments VWE 9 onwards), or there is a mixed team that mostly consists of male players, the male team will play.
  • Union women will play against female team. If there is a mixed team that mostly consists of female players, the women's team will play.
  • In case of mixed or nongendered gender teams, the JFGURN will send a dualsex team.
    Note: In the case of the final matchday showdown between Quebec and GGU national teams, the men's national teams will face each other. This policy is mostly due to the fact that there have been way less men's volleyball teams out in the NSSverse compared to women or mixed teams.




IC Information

Gatchingerrak Union of Rushmori nations, shortened as the Gatchingerrak Union, is a cultural and political alliance of four countries of the Quebecois Commonwealth located in mid-southern Rushmore (Norrskie Zasousti, Norrehavn, Gatchinovo and Novopetrograd, with an incoming membership by the Ilyrian Isles). The three kingdoms and the citystate, while independent nations of own, do have the Gatchingerrak Union as a way to establish their common zone, where their main goals are to advance co-operation in military, cultural, economic and energy matters. It shares land border with Vaugania and Norrhem to the west, while bits of the east touch Phoenigetzusta. Combined population of the union are estimated to be around 83 million.

While its trio of nations have always fought with one another for centuries, Gatchingerrak Union is a culturally diverse nation with growing importance outside to that of the Quebecois Commonwealth. Its population is ethnically diverse, with the eastern, Novopetrogradian half of the realms primarily Slavic, while the Western half is divided to primarily Nordic Norrehavn on north and slavic Norrskie Zasousti on the south. Somewhere in middle of the lake, which faces all of the three nations, stands the island that is nowadays known as the citystate of Gatchinovo, the ancient place known for its significance on trades and diplomacy among the Rushmori realms of the Quebecois Commonwealth. It is where the Accord between the 4 states were signed in year 2030 (around the time of WC78), to promise co-prosperity among the rivalling states whose cooperation is needed more than ever. Its economy is a mix of natural resources and heavy manufacturing for it.

A no stranger to international sport, Gatchingerrak Union does have a past history of international football and hockey, where its western realms were represented as Norrehavn. It has hosted a Copa Rushmori and a World Cup of Hockey, and both sports are extremely popular. Unfortunately, the long years of absence from the international sporting circuit does mean that it is expected to be a long way back to relevance for the seven-stars.

Team: Kohnhead National Volleyball Team (KNVT)
Nation Name: The Galatic Empire of Kohnhead
Shortened Name: Kohnhead
Nickname: The Brains
Record: 22-8
Colors: Dark Blue with Red Stripes (H) Light Red with Yellow and Blue alternating stripes (A)

Info: After a very surprising 2-1 run in Group H of the 9th World Volleyball Expo which saw us get to the round of 16, where we lost to Torisakia, volleyball became one of the more popular sports in Kohnhead. 2 years later it had overtaken basketball to become one of Kohnhead's big 4 sports in football, gridiron, tennis, and volleyball although baskbetball is looking to make it a big 5. Then the run to the semifinals and third place finish and as we return to Quebec and Shingoryeo for the 12th edition we are ranked 3rd in the Multiverse. Last time out back in Quebec and Shingoryeo we dominated our Group going 10-1 before a quarterfinals win over Baker Park. However in the semifinals HUElavia outlasted us in a tough 3-2 victory before we fell to Mytanija in the semifinals. The core that has carried this team for the past few years is aging and we don't know how much more they have in the tank.

DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF ABANHFLEFT
WOMEN'S NATIONAL VOLLEYBALL TEAM


This will be the seventh time that Abanhfleft will participate in an international volleyball tournament. While volleyball is very popular in the high school and college levels, there is not as much interest in professional volleyball, and the biggest professional volleyball league in the country is composed of only ten teams that play with semi-professional players in front of stadiums that are only a quarter full. But the Volleyball Federation of Abanhfleft hopes that with the inclusion of the national team to the Volleyball World Expo, interest in the sport within the nation will increase.

“Can you explain it?”

Nyagũthiĩ Wanjirsdóttir just about won the battle not to roll her eyes. She’d been playing with the Net Wolves for about two years now, and in all that time not once had she been seen as the go-to-gal on geopolitics. Until now. Suddenly, because a civil war was exploding on Græntfjall’s southeast border across Lake Viljan, just about every member of the team, and ten times as many from the press corps and general public, had come to her asking for her to explain the situation or offer her opinion. There was just one problem: Nyagũthiĩ wasn’t Kitaran! She was of Kijani extraction – her parents had immigrated from Mlima Kijani, a country in Atlantian Oceania, thousands of miles from Nyowani Kitara. After about the… twentieth time she’d been asked, though, she’d given up trying to explain this particular distinction that seemed to so fundamentally escape the comprehension of the Græntfjallers, and had just given in to reeling off the version of events as she best understood them, before making a quick exit.

“It’s a family dispute between the Akongo children over who gets to be President. Nafuna –”

“He’s the communist?”

“She. Yes, she’s the communist. And then her brother, Malik, is on the other side, fighting for power. Anyway, I really should be heading for practice!” She turned to leave and…

“What about the DFLK?”

Veronika Annesdóttir had entered the room from the other side, blocking Nyagũthiĩ’s exit. Once more, the tall younger woman’s eyelids fluttered.

“You know, I’m really not the expert on this. I’m sure if you ask Coach he can get us a briefer from the Culture Ministry or something…”

“Yeah but you people must know about this? You must talk about it when you all get together?”

There was such a wide-eyed innocence to Veronika’s question that softened the impact of her inadvertent phrasing: You people.

“We don’t all get together,” Nyagũthiĩ replied, as calmly as she could. Still, the question hung in the air. She pinched her nose between her fingers. “The DFLK are kind of irrelevant,” she sighed. “I wouldn’t worry about them. Nobody but the crazies supports them…”



“We should be doing more to support the DFLK!”

There was a general murmur of assent. Around the table sat a who’s-who of the Græntfjaller far right. General Úlfur Sigþórsson, relieved of his duties at Strike Command after a copy of a speech calling for general insurrection against the Left-slate government leaked, sat alongside Commander Gunnlaugur Rikharðsson, special forces veteran and accused war criminal. The civilian side was well represented, too: Þráinn Ástvinsson, a MT considered radical even by his NDF colleagues; Tamara Finnvarðsdóttir, every young conservative’s crush, an acerbic spokeswoman for the campus activist group Tuning Poinsettias (it was unclear why they were so called); and self-described “hyperfascist” maverick tech pioneer Hólmgrímur Svavarsson. The meeting was being chaired by Aron Fritzson, whose Jewish roots those in attendance were apparently willing to overlook (for now).

“Running a couple of trucks of small arms isn’t going to make much difference,” said Þráinn Ástvinsson. He turned to point to the tactical map showing the latest developments. “Banija and Darmen backing the KFF, Eurans and Nepharans in the field for the KPWC, and what can we offer them? A lorryload of rusting semiautomatics?”

“What would you suggest?” There was an acid barb to Cdr. Rikharðsson’s question. He had no intention of letting this doddering fool lecture him on military tactics.

“Boots on the ground!”

“Whose boots? You think the communists in Hvítursalur are going to send in the Army?”

“There are private forces…”

Cdr. Rikharðsson waved his hand dismissively. “There’s no private merc corps who could match those in the field. Besides, who’d pay for it?”

Everyone tried very hard not to look at directly at Hólmgrímur Svavarsson, who was busy watching a video on his phone. “Hmm?” He looked up.

“There’s talk of sanctions.” Tamara Finnvarðsdóttir decided to change tack, and leaned forward a little – her top two buttons were unfastened – to make sure all these horndog old men listened to her.

“All the more reason to step up the cash flow.”

“I’m an investor, not a króna kraken*,” objected Svavarsson. “What exactly am I investing in? We’ve heard squat from this Ulf dude. And now he’s working with the KFF? Why don’t I just go directly to the source and buy out Malik Akongo?”

A tall figure stepped out of the shadows at the back of the room. A woman’s voice spoke clearly: “We are not going to let this opportunity slip out of our grasp. I don’t care how much it costs, how many PMCs you have to recruit. You are going to make it happen. Two words, ladies and gentlemen. Two words.”

There was a murmur of assent from around the table, that was cut off as the image was frozen with Aron Fritzson halfway out of his seat to raise a toast to those two words:

“Greater Græntfjall,” said Kaija Michaelsdóttir quietly. It was a preposterous notion, and these far-right fools were bigger idiots than she took them for if they thought there was any chance of ‘marching to Port Viljan’. She doubted they’d get past the retired old policemen and military training rejects working border security. No, she wasn’t worried about the collective intellect of the people who’d allowed workmen to enter the DFLK mission in Háttmark to ‘repair the plumbing’, courtesy of which she was now watching this surveillance video from last week. No, it was two other words she was worried about. The two words that identified the tall woman, her face shrouded in the shadows, but her speaking voice unmistakeable.

Princess Kassandra.
