Information on major Regions

Sylvian
The people of Sylvian asked that their land be joined to Armatirion when their agressive neighbour Merité went to war with Phenixia. Sylvian was officially annexted on the 28th of November 297. The region has its own devoluted government and a flag (see the Flag page).

Moo-Scee-Tow
The large island in the Sea of Eulos is named Moo-Scee-Tow by the native population. The explorers from ancient Gronk who came to the island many years ago heard this name, but spelled it Mosquito. Linguists agree that this since became the name of the insect that roams the island. The same insects also made the gronkian explorers leave in a hurry, while the native people of the island through the generations have developed ways to avoid their terror. Through the application of plant extracts and strange magic devices, they seem to be of no interest to the mosquitos. The native people of Moo-Scee-Tow have their own devoluted government, and a flag of their own (see the Flag page).

Ptica National Park
The large island Ptica was jointly governed by the Union of Guwimith and Dependencies and the Republic of Armatirion. Following talks between Guwimith and Armatirion, the official foundation of Ptica Park took place on the 22nd of October 297, making Ptica Park the first and largest natural reserve in the world. The whole island is demilitarised, the small scientific settlements are virtually non-polluting, and all transport to and from the island is by sail boats and solar powered electrogliders.
On the neighbouring islands a new nation arose only a short time after the foundation of Ptica. Neonesia tried to disturb the peaceful existance of Ptica as a Guwimith/Armatirion territory, to little awail. Claims of Neonesian settlements on Ptica was dismissed by extensive exploration of the island. As Lendian historians concluded, the Great Plague (which killed a majority of the world's population) originated from Ptica. The Plague left a unique fauna and flora behind on the island, and this wildlife is what we preserve and protect.
Following the demise of Guwimith, Ptica was wholly taken into the Republic as a devoluted region.
