Rumia is a country in Galea, that has participated in NSC continuously since 55th edition.

GeographyEdit

Rumia is situated in the heart of Galea region. It borders Former Horehronian Iist of Shelley & Nici to the north and Paper & INK to the south-east.

The climate varies from oceanic temperate along the west coast to continental further into the mainland. Summers are warm and dry, while winter usually brings heavy snowfall everywhere except the coastline.

Typical Rumian landscape is characterized by dense forests that extend from the coast to the Ugunsezers lake that covers much of the country's central east. In the south is the northern end of a vast mountain range that stretches along most of Norigin. East of Ugunsezers the landscape changes dramatically, woodlands giving way to a semidesert.

Cities are located mostly at the coast, including Kamień - Rumia's capital and largest city. Central woodlands are dotted by half-independent villages. Deserts in the east are inhabitted in an irregular pattern of medium and small settlements and hamlets.

HistoryEdit

The oldest settlement in Rumia was founded in Urdusala, an island west of the mainland, by Galean pirates as a hideout. This was the height of Galean piracy activities and other such hideouts followed soon, dotting all of today's Rumia's coastline. Over years, they would grow into villages and cities. Their growth was limited, however, as long as they relied on piracy as the main source of income. In addition, the settlements were facing another problem: nearby kingdoms launching attacks on them in a war against piracy. This pushed civilian population inland, to search for safer places to live.

Inland Rumia was, and still is, one of the most dangerous places in Norigin, mostly due to predators, but also poisonous plants and unpredictable weather. It is estimated about half of the colonists had died to those dangers before settling down. But once the colonies were established, the rich wildlife would provide a lot of high quality meat and fur, allowing them to prosper. This also allowed the coastal towns to turn their focus towards trade and production instead of piracy. The frontier would keep expanding for the next centuries and stop at the western edge of Ugunsezers lake.

PoliticsEdit

EconomyEdit

Rumia is dominantly a rural country. Small, family-owned farms make up for most of GDP. Wheat, potatoes, corn, sugar, apples and livestock dominate Rumian agriculture. Lately, rock farming has gained popularity. The industry is mostly limited to alcohol production. Beer, wine, rum and vodka produced there are highly valued abroad.

The currency in use are bottle caps. One bottle cap can buy one bottle of beer and each bottle is capped. This clever trick allows for obtaining infinite amounts of beer for one cap and so the economy can flourish.

CultureEdit

Rumian population origins from outlaws coming from various parts of the continent. The distinct Rumian culture was shaped from early Middle Ages to the Renaissance, as a mix of traditions and hasn't changed a lot since. Rumian towns are mostly wooden, with narrow dirt roads (cars aren't in use). Large cities also feature steampunk elements.

The country has a rich and diverse folk music tradition, as well as a strong metal scene and many talented alternative artists. Apart from music, the people of Rumia are most active on the fields of literature and video games. Recent hosting of the first Nation Film Contest saw the rise of cinematography. In all fields of art, fantasy themes are most common and valued.
