(Eisarneland - litt. 'iron land') is a country in the
north east of
Thalassa, bordering Sevosetia (Swaifžiudos) in
the north west and Histairja (Žiudoland) in the south east.
The population depends primarily on agriculture and fishing.
In some corners of the country a certain amount of industry
is however possible, because of the presence of some small
mines, which are probably almost exhausted.
city of the country is Miklabaurgs. Thanks to the
metalic industry, breathable healthy air is scarse in this
overpopulated city and diseases are common. The city is
however enormously popular among people from the
countryside, who migrate to the city to look for jobs, that
aren't there. The result is a city full of poor, not very
social citizens living closely to each other. They tend to
quarrel and fight with each other often. Miklabaurgs is
called 'the Blotch of IJzerland'. Needless to say that the
IJzerland government has chosen another place as their
residence: the city of Badacho.
one would almost forget that the country has industrial
knowledge whatsoever; the same applies for the rest of the
country. Houses made out of loam, wood and stone look quite
idyllic and picturesk. The city has few high buildings - the
Churches of Ba form a small, though impressive skyline - and
occupies several square miles in all directions. The city of
Badacho is more than one thousand years old and possibly the
oldest city in IJzerland. In Ba's year 7023 (332 ante B.C.)
the city was chosen by bope Adrachnē as the new secular
centre of Baism, after the religion was chased from its
original capital, the Dardan city of Bapylon, eleven years
earlier. The inner city is divided in three parts: the
centre (Alžeis Stažs); chaotic little houses around the city
square, which also borders the town hall. The
Reikewaldufneis Stažs - the government buildings - is
located west of the centre, and the north eastern part of
the city is called Skolos Stažs; here one finds the only
university of IJzerland. Bordering Badacho (and part of what
one could call 'Greater Badacho') is the city of
Batikanobaurgs. This is the actual residence of Baism,
consisting of several smaller and larger churches, the
palaces of the bope and the bachanals and a lot of buildings
used for administrative purposes.
divided in three regions (Landa, singular Land),
which can be subdivided in provinces (Gauja, sing.
Gawi). There are also six autonomous provinces. The
north western coast forms the region of Gauržaland,
capital of which is Miklabaurgs. This region is rather small
and the eastern border is formed naturally by the Wende
Bairgahei. The south western lowlands, spits of land and
peninsulas belong to the region of Žraubbjus (capital
Badacho) and in the east is the region of Numuland,
with its capital Kiulisžaurp.
autonomous provinces are: the free city of Žeihwonohaims
in the south, Fagurna in the north east, Hrosaland
in the centre of the country (capital is Skaunjos
Garuneis), Alžibaurgs lies in the utter east,
bordering Histairja, Kagqizeinshaims or Qăănqjse
is formed by most of the islands in the south west, and
Waddjeland or Võtõmõ is the very large province
in the far north; its capital is Waddjestažs or
largest ethnical group are the IJzerlandic people; they
speak the Teutonic (Germanic) language of
looks an awful lot like earth's extinct Gothic language, but
isn't entirely the same. The other two groups recognized by
the IJzerlandic government are the Sambeke, who live mostly
in Kagqizeinshaims, and the Votes, a mostly nomadic tribe
that live in Waddjeland. The Votic language could be related
to Finnish and Estonian if it was spoken on earth - in fact,
there is a language on earth which has the same name, but is
a lot different than Thalassan Votic.
Sambeke has no
relations with any other language. Other, non-recognized
ethnic groups and languages are the Sloiwoncians, the Wendes
and small groups of Dardans that never left after the
independence in 7500.
The Calender of Ba is observed in IJzerland, beginning
at the moment at which Ba expells all other gods from heaven
and puts them as humans on earth. According to tradition
this occurred almost 8000 years ago. There are more
countries around the Thalassa that use this calender. On
these pages the Baerlian years may have been added between brackets
after the years of Ba; 'ante B.C.' (ante Baerlem Conditam) =
before Baerle was founded; 'A.B.C.' (A Baerle Condita) =
after Baerle was founded.
IJzerland variant of the Calender of Ba, a year is divided
in sixteen months, with an extra leap month every three
years. The names of the months are based on ancient Dardan
gods as well as on several important bopes. The remaining
five months are derived from Dardan (= Greek) cardinal
numbers: Babaks (25 days), Aiforma (24),
Histaurs (24), Iugks (25), Sisura (24),
Žalassa (24), Pur (25), Gaipauna (25),
Rapsoidia (24), Raižumia (24), Skandala
(25), Žeosebeia (24), Treskadaika (24),
Tesrskadaika (25), Pegkadaika (24) and
Hekkadaika (24). The leap month is called
Heptakadaika (24 days).
year consists of 398.33 days. An IJzerlandic week lasts six
days. One Thalassan days lasts 25 earth hours, 4 minutes and
41 seconds. In IJzerland a day is divided in 21 hours.
order to avoid boredom the Thalassa participants decided to
speed up the time of the project a bit, in relation to the
time on earth. The Thalassan people don't know this of
course, nor has this any influence on their age or any other
things. The first day of the year 7990 took place on the
first day of January 2007, exactly at midnight. On 31
December 2008 the year 7996 took off; on 26 August 2009 the
year 7998 started, etc.)
