SummaryEdit

Ziegenland is a small, farming nation that is a member of the Gratharian Nations. There is a large divide between rich and poor in the country and it is known for the small size of its army, roughly 1120 men. There are, in fact, more mercenaries (estimated at 2340 men) than soldiers, giving their army the nickname of "die bezahlte männer" after the number of hired men in the national army. It is a predominately human nation with only about 2% of the population being halflings.

Somewhere in the 3rd Milenium of the 3rd Age, the Nation of Ziegenland was formed. It branched off from Grathor and declared itself independant. It was supposedly ruled by a fantastical king called Fürst. Fürst led the Ziegens into war with the Gratharians and conquered much of modern day Grathor. They ruled this territory until about the 43rd Century (4200's) when they were pushed back by a Gratharian-Laurentian army. Ziegenland's new King, Kaiser Frieden II, managed to make a peace treaty with Grathor, which strengthened during the 1st Kativan War and has continued ever since.

In the 6th Millenium, Ziegenland allied with Nyrdland, an enemy of Grathor at the time. Nyrdland pumped money into the Ziegen Economy and they both flourished. Nyrdland, however, pulled out its support in the 6450's and caused Ziegenland, now heavily Nyrd-influenced, to go into an economic decline.

GeographyEdit

Ziegenland is surrounded by Grathor (East, South and North) and by the Halfling Ocean (West). It has two mountains, Mt. Abagt and Mt. Rang. It has five hills, known as the Five Sisters, Gretel, Hanna, Maria, Helga and Gerda. These hills are situated near the town of Viso. Most of Ziegenland's Eastern border is defined by the Ziegen River, which stretches from the town of Rang down to the Delta by the town of Delton.

ClimateEdit

Ziegenland has a warm Western Coast, with the inner East being cool. Rainfall occours year round.

WildlifeEdit

Wild animals include deer, wild boar, fox, hare and beavers. Plants include Pine trees (imported from Nyrdland during the truce of the 6th Millenium), ferns, flowers, fungi and mosses. The national animal of Ziegenland is the Eagle.

CultureEdit

The Ziegens are famous for their classical composers, including Wolfgang Tormunn and Ludwig Aronhim. Ziegen art and cuisine is also a major influence in Western Grathor.
