I thought for the first update, we could start somewhere small. So we will be visiting the small village of Cretos.

Map:

Cretos has a population of 7,000 people, and is located at the bottom of the Visillos Mountains.

Just because it is night time, doesn't mean the villagers are asleep.

The Windmill helps the village stay lively and productive, as it provides clean electricity to industries and houses.

Switchgrass is grown in Matinenda and used for Bio-fuel. Matinenda hopes to end nonrenewable fuel dependency by 2025 by using tax

breaks and other financial incentives to attract citizens to more environmentally beneficial energy sources.

Industry is very important for this region, as it provides the most amount of jobs.

The village border is made evident by the forest. The trees feed off of the pollution made by the industries in the village.

Doesn't this make you drool a little? I know it has that affect on me...

History:

The history of the Mediterranean Island Nation of Matinenda reads more like that children’s game of “Hot Potato,” than that of a country. The island has changed hands frequently in its long history, with each occupation etching its mark into the culture of these fine people.

In the years before Matinenda even had a name, there had always been a question of to whom exactly the island belonged. It seemed that that question had been answered when The Roman Empire decreed dominion over the Mediterranean isle in around 12 BC. Its possession was once again up for grabs when the Western Half of the Roman Empire fell. The battle for control of Matinenda continued for 76 years until the Eastern half of the Roman Empire, or the Byzantine Empire, fell. After the Byzantine fall 903 years after Matinenda was claimed by the former East Rome, they were left on their own for a span of 342 years.

Culture was enhanced and traditions were established, but soon enough in 1795 France annexed the island and again the Matinendans lost their independence. Although that all changed, when the Treaty of Paris was signed, and the island was given to England as part of the treaty deal. Matinenda finally became independent again for the first time in 109 years after England no longer saw any purpose of keeping the island and granted the Matinendans their independence.

The island was at first was named: "The Democratic Island of Matinenda". During World War I, Matinenda had a problem of its own civil unrest. In 1916, rebels in the West wanted to secede from the Eastern Democratic half and become a communist nation, and after three long years of a hard fought civil war, Matinenda became whole again under a Democratic form of government.

After the war, and the reunification of the nation, the war ravaged nation needed symbol to show its new-found unity and purpose. A national anthem was commissioned. Matinenda: The Brave and Grand would become a song that all Matinendans could hear and their hearts would fill with pride for the nation they fought for thousands of years to be able to call their own.

Another history shaping event was the Great Drought of 1932. In 1932, a massive heat wave tortured the island, and when it seemed it couldn’t get any worse, there was no rain, not a drop. People were forced to stay home due to the heat being too intense for what they were used to. It got as hot as 40°C in the day and 25°C at night. The government went from Capitalist to Democratic-Socialist in a last ditch effort to save the economy after the drought and heat wave took its toll. The economy did rebound again in 1940, however Matinenda remained a Democratic-Socialist nation.

During WWII, Matinenda was briefly occupied by Fascist Italy, led by Benito Mussolini. The Island nation received Allied aid which helped the Matinendan Army finish them off to reclaim their independence for the last time.

After World War II Matinenda went into a Nationalist Age, which lasted for 17 years. Joy and love for the country prevailed and a new National Anthem was commissioned. Sébrène l’Orient, of Ascadylea wrote a new version of Matinenda: The Brave and Grand. This version captured the soul and vision of the Matinendan people. This new version has remained the anthem of the proud people to this day.

To this day Matinenda is a luxorious nation, profitting off of economic practices very similar to Sweden's. It avoids conflicts, and is a business partner with many other countries throughout Europe, and the planet. (Thank you JJ for writing this. Credit goes to you.)
