Fictional Country Development

World at War Fictional Countries

After spending a lot of time on the Old School Wargaming and Society of Daisy Yahoo Groups, I decided to work on my own fictional countries for a while. This is probably not as difficult as it might sound as I have been immersed in Warhammer Fantasy Battles for the last several years and creating themed armies has been a major part of that.

Fictional Countries Map

The map to the left was created with Game Mapper from Imagine Image. Clicking on the image will bring up a larger version of the map in a separate window. I have used this as it allowed me to rough out what I want the countries to look like and see if I could come up with a viable area. Boundaries between the countries are shown by a brown dashed line. I want to be able to continue the wars between these nations over an extended period so I can draw in armies that one would see in the Ancient world, English Civil War, Seven Years War, American Civil War, and roughly the end of the 19th century where Aeronef will come into play. I envision the wars to begin with open warfare breaking out between the Keuhakans and the residents of Neutralia. The Keuhakans are native tribesmen based on the civilized tribes of the American Northeast. All the countries have used Keuhakan forces as light infantry auxiliaries from time to time, but their raids against Neutralian citizens and “trading outposts” have brought Freedonia and Nuevo Rico into conflict.

Michael Cannon

I have been wargaming as long as I can remember. I met my wife when I was 14 and had been gaming long before that so that should give you an indication as to how long it has been. One of the first games I owned was Anzio by Avalon Hill. I drove over to the hobby shop in the snow to pick it up as I finally had the money to get something! I can remember playing with Airfix figures and Roco tanks back in the 6th grade and before.
