Future of the Poles: Antarctica by DaneOfScandinavy Future of the Poles: Antarctica by DaneOfScandinavy
As temperatures continue to rise, much of the Antarctic ice disappears, creating many new islands. Suitable for farming and with vast amounts of resources hidden underneath the ice, Antarctica becomes a region of great strategic importance. Tens of thousands of people migrate there due to the disastrous effects of the Flood in their homelands, and farming communities emerge across the land. Today, Antarctica, formerly neutral territory, is divided into 9 regions: O'Higgins Land, governed by Chile; Saint Martin Land, governed by Argentina; William's Land, governed by the British Republic; Maudland, governed by the Nordic Federation; East Maudia, governed by Australia; Chinese Antarctica, governed by China; Vostokland, governed by Russia; Victoria, governed by the US; and the independent Republic of Rossland.

I love the Chinese, just "Yep, here's our slice, aptly and uncreatively named as well."

Since it's in the middle of Maudland, your "New Swabia" belongs to Scandinavia. Sorry XD

That's interesting. I wonder if I'm really as Danish as I think I am. There's a story in my family about a Spanish soldier, but I don't know if that's true or not.

Look here are my results:

Both my father and my mother have scandinavian viking blood, too. So Iīm ya bro, haha XD

You can only find it out with this test, if you had a male spanish ancestors, it must be in your DNA.
But who knows if he is also iberian, you know that germanic tribes like Goths and Suebi invaded Spain, too.
But actually you can see what you are, when you look in the mirror XD At least what is dominating of course
you can have hidden DNA, too, which can show in your children later.

Well, the Vikings went everywhere, and Scandinavia and Germany are right next to each other, so it makes sense that Scandinavian genes were spread out. Then we must both be Sons of Odin or whatever XD

I want to find out, but I'm not ready to spend money on it, so... But perhaps one day, I'll do it.

What's that small grey circle near the middle? Neutral territory?

It's the South Pole, and yes it's neutral territory.

What does Xinbingdao means and how and why you pick this name?

"Bingdao" is what Iceland is called in Chinese, and "xin" simply means "new", so Xinbingdao = New Iceland

Could you develop some more please? Cause I'd like to know how the chilean,french or new zealandian claims disappeared... Maybe a war? Really I'd like to know cause today it's not plausible that those countries would leave the opportunity to finally exploit their claims on this continent.
Reply
:icondaneofscandinavy:
DaneOfScandinavy Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2013
Chile would probably lose its claim in a war with Argentina and the UK, while the French and New Zealandic claims are part of the United Antarctic States.

Instead of the US creating a colony, they established a sovereign state together with France and New Zealand. This they did because they wanted to be more powerful against the others.

As a matter of fact, no one actually owns Antarctica, so it is not Chile's land.

So the Antarctic Treaty would be broken by this time? It's as if every nation is trying to grab a hold on something for their nation... Say do you happen to have more info like their type of Gov, economy, population, religion, etc?
Reply
:icondaneofscandinavy:
DaneOfScandinavy Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2013
Well, I don't really have that much of a backstory, but no. But the type of government, economy and religion is probably the same as the countries they are owned by, the largest cities are Vostok, McMurdo and some Argentinean city, and the total population is probably around 500.000 or so.

Give Germany Neuschwabenland back XD It could actually happen, if Germany becomes stronger inside the EU or founds and own alliance after the € is destroyed maybe and then it wants recources too^^ Neuschwabenland can be found on Wikipedia ;)
