Good idea. Does anyone want to make an attempt at that in a sentence or two?


Jelbic = "Group of cultures with an overall Central Asian/Eurasian steppe theme, using a fictional language developed specifically for Particracy"

Maybe the Jelbic nations could be described better by their specific cultural character rather than simply their membership in the Jelbosphere. So something like this:

Barmenia: Jelbic-speaking Turko-Persian with Assyrian and Arab minorities
Jelbania: Jelbic-speaking Central Asian
Pontesi: Jelbic-speaking Armenian with Roman minority
Vanuku: Jelbic and Dutch-speaking mix of Dutch, Mongolian, and Arab.

I like that idea and have made the changes accordingly.

"Jelbosphere" - I love that word!

In terms of Kundrati, I want to head over and shape her Into either of these three nations.

1. Denmark
2. Belgium
3. Serbia.

Kundrati is supposed to be a Basque-Roman mix, with a conlang slightly different from Basque as its main language.

Scandinavia is present in Telamon and Kazulia, Aloria is Belgium (although with different ethnic groups), and Deltaria is, to some extent, Serbia.

Aloria is a German-Welsh mix pretty much the same way Belgium is a Flemish/Dutch-French mix.

Maybe a better definition of Solentia would be English, Arabic, and Greco-Roman mix.

Solentia's current Cultural Protocols do not seem to mention Greco-Romans.

From the current CP:

The original structure of the Federal Republic of Solentia was somewhat American in nature: a freedom loving republican nation founded upon the basis of a Christian-esque religion. Prior to this, the nation had been roleplayed as a Majatran (OOC: Arab) dictatorship, and prior to that as a (roughly) OOC Greco-Roman empire that embraced the ultra-nationalist, bellicose, and now-feared ideals of Nuncirism. Over time, the amalgamation of these influences has evolved into what now can only be described as an uniquely Solentian culture. Thus, (in what is a vast simplification), Solentian culture can be seen as influenced by OOC English, Arabic, and Greco-Roman roots.
