Arapaho, State of
A vast western state known primarily for agriculture and ranching, to the extent that it is known. Pronounced aw-RAH-pah-ho.
The eastern portion of the state, including a dozen or so countries. Known largely for its strong Germanic and Catholic roots. It’s sometimes viewed as a “state-within-a-state” due to the cultural differences between it and the southern accent of the rest of the state.
The state where we presently live. A rather small town that serves as a hub for the tri-county area.
Cascadia, State of
A state in the Pacific northwest. It’s known mostly by the Zaulem Sound area, which includes the state capitol of Avalon, the city where I live Soundview, and the largest city in the state, Zaulem. The state is well known for its technological innovation in the Zaulem Sound area and its suburb Enterprise City, which houses one of the largest technology companies in the world.
Colosse’s rival city in the state to the north. Very large city with all (or most) of the sports team and international business trimmings.
The large southern city in whose suburbs I was raised. Colosse has a metropolitan area that is in the top 25 of the country and it’s generally a bigger place than most people realize. The home to the statehouse, multiple major league sports teams (including baseball’s Colosse Canes and hockey’s Deltona Dragons), and Southern Tech University. For more, search Colosse in The Official Guide to Delosa.
A moderate-to-large city on the opposite end from the state from Colosse. For more, search Delianapolis in The Official Guide to Delosa.
Deseret, State of
Large western state known primarily for its large Mormon population. 80% of the state’s population can be found within ten miles of I-13, which vertically cuts the state in half. Deseret’s capital is Gazalem.
Deltona, State of
The southern state in which I was raised, known primarily for it’s largest city and capital, Colosse. The state was originally settled by German Catholics and its roots are evident. The western portion of the state is dominated by Colosse. The central and northern parts of the state are rural south. The eastern part of the state is called Bavariana due to its Germanic character. (Note: This state has gone through a couple of namechanges. Was previously “Dixona” and “Delosa.”
Enterprise City, Cascadia
The home to Mindstorm, one of the largest technology companies in the world where I work. There isn’t much else there of interest. It is located nearby New City, which is a little more urban in nature. Both are not far from the metropolis of Zaulem.
Deltona’s premier college town as the home of the University of Deltona. For more, search Ephesus in The Official Guide to Delosa.
Estacado, State of
A geographically large but not highly populated south in the inland southwest of the United States. We moved to the area in 2006 and will be here for a year or two. I live in the state’s largest city of Santomas and work in the city’s capital of Almeida.
Fort Beck, Deseret
Fort Beck is actually a section of the town of Zarahemla. Clancy and I lived right on the border of Fort Beck. Fort Beck housed the American soldiers sent to rein in the early Mormon settlers to the area. The fort was closed and converted into Beck State University.
The suburb of Colosse in which I was raised. Tangramayne is the site of one of the Air Force’s R&D laboratories so a significant portion of the population works either for the Department of Defense or a contractor.
The town in Deseret where I worked when we lived out there. It was about 30-40 miles away from Fort Beck and Zarahemla, where I was living out there. Mocum is a much more religious town than Zarahemla and the home to a surprising number of white collar jobs.
Ouachita, State of
The mostly rural southern state that my father is originally from.
A large party-city in Acadiana. Home to the University of Acadiana, the legendary Poncho Row, and gambling. Clancy and I first kissed in this city.
The small city that is the closest “urban” area to Callie. It’s blue collar and run down. I substitute taught in their school system.
A city of about half-a-million in the heart of the state of Estacado in southwestern America. As the home of the University of Estacado and the main job center of the state, it’s full of young people both students and graduates. It is known throughout the state as the hotbed of urban liberalism.
The city in Cascadia where I live. It’s a blue collared suburb/sister to the main city of Zaulem. It houses the University of Cascadia as well as a minor league sports team.
Arapaho’s capital city, home of the University of Arapaho, and the state’s largest city. It is one of the places we go to meet our more urban needs.
Southern Tech University, Deltona
The university I attended. It’s called SoTech (or Sotech) for short. It began as a purely technical college, though expanded to become a comprehensive university. It’s colors are black and gold and its mascot is the Wolf Pack or the Packers.
Tennassee, State of
A rival southern state to Deltona. It is not misspelled.
A small city of less than 100k people. Despite a significant Mormon population, Zarahemla has the reputation among the more pious Deseretians as a den of iniquity. It’s one of the few liberal-leaning places in the state outside the capital city, due mostly to the college located within the city, Beck State University.
Zaulem is the largest city in the state of Cascadia. I go there occasionally when something important is in town. They have at least a couple of professional sports team. The city is mostly known for being one of the more liberal cities in the country.
