What is Conworlding?

Conworlding, also called worldbuilding, is the process of constructing an imaginary world, sometimes associated with a whole fictional universe. The resulting world may be called a constructed world or a conworld. The term "worldbuilding" was popularized at science fiction writers' workshops in the 1970s. Developing an imaginary setting with coherent qualities such as a history, geography, and ecology is a key task for many science fiction or fantasy writers. Worldbuilding often involves the creation of maps, a backstory, and people for the world. Constructed worlds can enrich the backstory and history of fictional works, and it is not uncommon for authors to revise their constructed worlds while completing its associated work. Constructed worlds can be created for personal amusement and mental exercise, or for specific creative endeavors such as novels, video games, or role-playing games.

Map of Liberta

Author: Erik
Project: Independent
Capital: Liberta (city-state)
Population: 3,000,000
Leader(s): Consul(s) Lawson Guus, Marino Laurens, Gaius Destin
Summary: The Trinitarian Parliamentary Republic of Liberta (/lɪbɛrtɑ/) is a city-state located in the Atlantic Ocean, laying on the Great Meteor Seamount with a devolved Trinitarian System of Government. Liberta lies west of the Moroccan coast and south-west of the Iberian Peninsula. Its capital and only city is the City of Liberta and amasses for 96,99% of the total landmass of Liberta. The fauna of Liberta solely consists of megafaunal taxa of corals, sponges and sea urchins, together with 53 different species of fish, all originating from the seamount.

While Libertas land area is significantly minuscule in comparison to other countries in southern Europe, it has a nautical territory of 203,252 km2, in which it also occupies Hyéres and Plato Seamounts, and Cruiser Tablemount. These areas have been subject to multidisciplinary research. Liberta solely consists of the city of Liberta itself, together with “defense-walls” or breakwaters and McGarrett island (solely built for the construction of McGarrett International).

The Trinitarian Parliamentary system is unique to Liberta, where it is fully executed. The system works in partial terms of a parliamentary republic and consists of one chamber, being the "hall of decision" in the City Hall of Liberta. In the hall of the decision, there would be 100 men called the senators, these men where to be elected locally each fifth year, parallel to the consules, three men that together are the head of government and state. Another way to compare the trinitarian parliamentary system is by thinking of the senators as the chamber and the consules as the presidents in a comparison to the U.S. system.

In the international community, Liberta is seen as a an economic and cultural center, as well as so called "gate" to ancient Mediterranean culture. McGarett International Airport is the worlds second most anually trafficked , and serves as a major hub for over 30 airlines. As such, Liberta is an attractive tourist location, due to its well preserved Ancient Greek, Byzantine, and Romanesque architecture, as well as for its rich historical aspects of the country.

United Commonwealth five dollar note (obverse).svg

The Continental Dollar known officially as the United Commonwealth dollar (symbol: Ȼ; code: UCD also abbreviated UCȻ) is the official legal tender of the United Commonwealth. In 1919 partisan forces of the Continentalist Party seized nearly 4,500 metric tons of gold reserves belonging to the Federal Reserve during a series of heists. It was the largest seizure of wealth in recorded history and dismantled the Federalist dollar, sending the global economy into a financial panic and finally a recession. Continental forces quickly attempted to alleviate the fears of international trading partners, printing a new series of tender that would act as a temporary promissory for the gold. With the death of Aeneas Warren the nation began refusing to return gold reserves to adversarial nations and former businessmen. In 1925 the currency was officially transitioned into a labour voucher and in 1948 the tender was turned to a fiat note.

The five dollar bill (shown above) depicts the Chicago skyline on its obverse and on its reverse Isaiah Landon. Because of its unique style, rejection of European style security features and color patterns it is highly sought after by collectors. Zhou Xinyue, depicted on the ten dollar note, was the first Asian-American to be depicted on legal tender in North America.
