Etymology[edit]

An old myth tells that the sky was pink when the Victorian people conquered the land. Queen Cerelia Cleantha decided to create a flag based on this colour and named the country "Victoria", Latin for "Victory", referring to the prodigious treasures in the shallow waters off the western coasts.

History[edit]

The land belonged for some time to two other nations. There was Lyra which settled in the unclaimed country, but at the same time Zephyrus settled there too. The Lyrian people where mysterious, rumours said that Lyra suddenly disappeared. After a time Zephyrians built beautiful cities in the west and a had lot treasures, the most of them were gifts from Outnernatia and Internatia countries including their homeland. But the Lyrian did not disappeared and they were afraid that Zephyrus would expel them because of their powerfully wealth. The people of Lyra became a big military. Lately they were influenced by greed and want to take the Zephyrian cities over. The Zephyrian people were shocked. Military from nearby countries of Outernatia came to help Zephyrus to protect their cities. It was a big war. Finally Zephyrus won, but not much left over from their cities, they were too weak to build it up again. They hide their treasures until the day they would come back.

Climate[edit]

The climate ranges from humid subtropical to humid continental and oceanic. The coastal areas of Beverly Cake, Pearl Angeless and most of the Southwest generally fit the Mediterranean climate stereotype (Köppen climate classification Csa). Conditions on peninsular coastal areas can be very different from the interior's higher ground and valleys, particularly during the winter months when the higher altitudes tend to be cold, wet, and often snowy. The coastal regions have mild winters and warm and generally dry summers, although lowland valleys can be quite hot in summer. Average winter temperatures vary from 0 °C on the mountains to 12 °C in Victoria, like so the average summer temperatures range from 20 °C to over 30 °C.

Under the constitution, the princess shares her veto power with the unicameral National Council. The 23 members of the National Council are elected for three-year terms; 17 are chosen through a majority electoral system and 6 by proportional representation. All legislation requires the approval of the National Council, which is currently dominated by the central-right Union of Victoria, which holds 20 seats. The only other party represented in the National Council is the right-wing Rally and Issues for Victoria, which holds just three seats. The princessipality's city affairs are directed by the Communal Council, which consists of thirteen elected members and is presided over by a mayor. Like the National Council, councillors are elected for three-year terms and are strictly non-partisan, however, oppositions inside the council frequently form.

Media[edit]

The main Radio and TV station is Radio Television Victoria. This is the is the national public-service broadcaster for the community of Victoria. Shows must be published in Dutch, French and English, people can choose in which language they want to watch the show.

Fashion[edit]

Fashion has been an important industry and cultural export of Victoria since the 17th century, and modern "haute couture" originated in Mirabella in the 1860s. Today, Mirabella, along with Heatherton, Bündchen, and Doutzen, is considered one of the Outernatia's fashion capitals, and the city is home or headquarters to many of the premier fashion houses. The expression Haute couture is, in Victoria, a legally protected name, guaranteeing certain quality standards.

The association of Victoria with fashion and style dates largely to the reign of Queen Cerelia Cleantha when the luxury goods industries in Victoria came increasingly under royal control and the Victorian royal court became, arguably, the arbiter of taste and style in Outernatia. But Victoria renewed its dominance of the high fashion industry in the years 1860–1960 through the establishing of the great couturier houses such as Chanel, Dior, and Givenchy. The Victorian perfume industry is Outernatia leader in its sector and is centered on the town of Dior.

Flower Festival[edit]

The Flower Festival is an annual festival that takes place in Beverly Cake, Vallon. The festival is renowned for its countless events and international appeal. The festival opens with the Flower Parade, where the whole town gathers to watch the countless of floral costumes, floats and dancers.

The Flower tradition has risen and became a well-known festival reuniting people from all over Outernatia. The festival occurs in the summer, starting in the first week of August (7 days).

Princess's Day[edit]

Princess's Day is a national holiday in Victoria. Celebrated on 5 April, the date marks the birth of the Princess of Victoria. There are many parties and the Princess herself visits one or several cities with her family. The people wear pink or white clothes, often even donning wigs or make-up in the national colors of Victoria.
