His Majesties State of Alba

Post by Werl on Thu Jul 14, 2011 5:13 am

OOC: I'm mostly done just have some history to do.

Name of Country: His Majesties State of Alba
Nickname: HSMA, Alba
Race: A new, slightly more evolved, species of Human.
Motto: There is nothing Technology can't solve, for a price.
Flag: White background with a large mountain and a bunch of houses on the bottom with the flag on top of the mountain.
Location (on map): South of Solarus, West of Capua.
Various Symbols:
Leader Title: King/Queen
Leader Name: King Samual III
Capital: Edenbourough
State Religion:A formal religion is not believed but it is believed that everything comes from the Earth and therefore must be returned when no longer in use. Things that can't be returned to the Earth, such as metals, are reused or recycled.
Political Overview: Complete Monarchi
Economic Overview: Government Regulated Capitalism

National History:
Alba is about 500 years old before consisting of several dozen small city states. Over the past 100 years Alba has had a line of bad kings and now if the citizens have a problem with what a king has done they will revolt. The only reason it has not turned into a republic is there is always someone who will promise anything to please the crowd and be put in power.

When Alba became a country it was founded on the idea that if we all worked together most all problems especially food shortages, a common thing happening every 3-4 years.
Political Systems:
Complete monarchy with the use of many advisers
Economic Systems:
A barter system is used mainly but things can be purchased with gold/silver. A portion of gold/silver is taken for taxes, if that is not sufficient the left over is paid through labour for the crown. This is done once a year.
Important Resources:
Iron, Coal, Albiun (similar to Amolite), many metals, large forests
Significant Figures:
King: Samual III
Prince: Anthony II
General: Henery Jankens
Societal Overview:
Usually quite calm and uneventful but recently there has been multiple changes in leader. Because of this laws change rapidly and people don't know what laws to follow and witch to ignore often putting people in jail for minor things they didn't even know were illegal.
Geographical Overview:
Mountainous in the centre flattening as you go farther away. Large area of flatland used for farming. The southern coast is tropical rainforest containing multiple small villages.
Climate Overview:
Wide variety. Mostly tropical and sub-tropical. North gets a few months of stow and winter and south is completely tropical. Large tropical rainforest in the south, boreal in the north.
Technological Overview:
Because of our rich metal reserves the HSMA has been doing metal working for about 4000 years. We have since gotten to working with most types of metal. We have also been dabbling with gunpowder. Altho not as strong a some but we can make about 300 pounds a day.
Military Overview:
We rely heavily on archers, a mix of regular and cross-bows. Guns are rarely used as they have poor accuracy and are a pain to handle. Cannons are widely used but require massive amounts of supplies to use its full potential. HSMA has a small navy because our ships are difficult to build as they contain a thin layer of metal on the inside of the hull to prevent sinking if struck. Only about 2 ships a year are built but they have an thrice the average lifespan because of the metal reinforcement.

Because we travel fairly lightly, cannons are pulled by horses for mobility, the HSMA is fast. Moral varies as political unrest is an on-and-off thing, there has been 3 different kings over the past 5 years with the latest king only being in power for about 4 months. Right now moral is extremely high as all soldiers know that their families will be taken care of if anything happens to them while serving the country. The military is loyal to the king.

Strengths: speed, moral, size, technology (advances with metals), armour (when needed).
Weaknesses: moral, technology (little use of guns),

Just note that plastics will not be around yet considering the date is around 1570 - 1600 at the moment. XD And the game will not progress as far as the heyday of plastics. Anyway, I'm looking forward to the rest of the registration, Werl.
