Adatan’s economy is made up of many contributors mainly Manufacturing, Agriculture, Tourism. The manufacturing industry is centered mainly around the city of Rotterdam and Richmond. It is mostly made up of Automoblie and Consumeables but there is also some advanced computer technology firms such as Honex Industries Adatan’s largest company. Agriculture in Adatan is a highly developed and mechanised industry which enables it to be highly competitive on the world market. It consists of mostly fruit and vegetable growing. It is mainly present in the South (New Holland Province) and East (Province). Tourism is a large part of the Republics economy major areas for tourism are the West Coast around Tasman City on the beaches and in the Centraal Alps for Skiing and other related activites.


Government in Adatan is organised in to a federal Republic made up of four provinces each with high level of autonmy. Each province has its own Justice, Police and Health Systems the Central Government handles all other Departments including Transport. The government was formed in 1988 after the revoluotion against the monarchy that ruled for over 100 years.


Adatan was a Colonial settlement of the Netherlands and Britain. Originaly discovered by the Dutch explorer Abel Tasman it was cited as a suitable place for a Dutch Colony. A British colony was also established in Adatan. The native Polynesian population was relatively small and were easliy oppressed. The settlers still embarked on a genocidal campaign on the natives. They imprisioned them and brought them to the settlements. Originally they were brought there to be worked to death but soon some were released and integrated into the communites. They were highly discriminated against and formed there own communites. It wasnt untill the late 20th Century that they were recognised as citizens and given equal rights to all parts of the country. The colonies were well supported by their colonial powers. The idea of unifing the colonies arose in 1821 when a dutch leader decided it would be more productive if the Dutch colonies joined. This happened in 1829 when the Great Floods of 1829 occurred, the flood destroyed the Northern Dutch Colony of Utrecht this put it at risk of invasion by the British. So the absorbed the two colonies together. Attempts by the Dutch colonies to unite the whole of Adatan did not bear fruit until the Dutch managed to open a path of land between the two parts of the Dutch colony after invading the British and Spliting their colony in half. The British were eventually forced to withdrawal leaving their colony to the Dutch. In 1855 the prince of Adatan was proclaimed King soon after the Kingdom of Adatan broke away from the Netherlands. Becoming an absolute monarchy. After WW2 the Kingdom set about improving its army after the near invasion by the Japanese.The Kingdom was hit hard by a Depression, most of the country was below the poverty line. The government tried to fix the situation by creating public works projects like the Tallaharte Air force Base and Flood defenses to create employment. This scheme worked untill the Kingdom was swamped in debt and had to curtail projects. It was escalated in 1967 when floods ravaged the country and destroyed its crops. Then in 1975 the Kingdom grew wary of their monarchy and protests for change began. The government ignored them and in 1985 a reveloution began was hard fought and most of the Gunfighting was restricted to the Capital, eventually the monarchy abdicated and a new government was formed. They formed the Republic of Adatan. After the new government was formed the country was stronger than ever and flourished under the new government. The economy performed strong and there was lots of new developments. The country experienced the Golden age of Development with high Human development and Prosperity for the Nation.


Adatan is Located on a chain of over 500 Islands in the South Pacific Ocean about 4000km East of New Zealand and 5500km West of South America. The population is mostly concentrated on the 'Mainland Territories' the largest island in the chain also Eindoven and Canterbury Islands.

The 'Mainland' is mstly covered by the Alps and the New Holland Ranges. The Major River in Adatan are the Utrecht River running from the Alps to Utrecht Harbour passing the Centraal Lowlands a sedimentary floodplain. To the North of the river is another floodplain the Utrecht plains are notorious for devastating floods. The Koning (King) River flows from the Southern part of the Alps out past the Centraal Lowlands to the North and the New Holland Plains to the South it also passes through Lake Gouda the countries largest lake. The main fertile areas are the Centraal Lowlands the New Holland plains and Utrecht plains. The British found farming the lowlands difficult because of the low lying nature and poor draining soils. The Dutch however were used to low lying land and thrived with the space. The mountains of Adatan are usually snow-capped and rise to over 1000 meters above sea level. The country has lots of deep harbours around its coast.

Could I suggest a slope mod? The avenue in the first picture must be a pain to drive on. :P Otherwise, nice job! Slopes aside, the historical district looks very nice. Maybe some canals? I also see you like Wikipedia-like infographics, like me. ;) I'll be following this CJ.

    Some Political News to give you background for the next update!

    Tensions Rise in Adatan Politics -14/11/2012

    The president is further alienating the public by making increasing problematic decisions. Their have been protests at his leadership, and calls for him to step down. Many Provincial Governments have withdrawn support for the government, including Flevoland and New Holland. When all provinces have withdrawn support the incumbent president will be removed and replaced with a commissioner. Adatan is currently held together by tense relations. There are real fears that New Holland, the powerhouse province could try to succeed from the union. If this happens the rest of the provinces will have no choice but to leave the crumbling union or go down with it. With elections just around the corner the situation is not as dire as it seems, However if the crisis escalate any further there will be major problems down the track for the Republic.

    Dean Clark "Must go!"-7/11/2012

    Incumbent President Dean Clark has faced criticism over his view on Abortion and Civil rights in Adatan. People have expressed concern over him and his National Christian Party's (NCA) leadership over controversial issues. The Federal Elections to be held in December will tell if Dean Clark will earn a third term in office but it looks unlikely that the NCA will make up a sizeable part of the Parliament after the election. Having Campaigned on Alcohol and Education Reforms for his two terms respectively it looks unlikely that he will a have a foundation for the 2012 campaign.

  • In the Shadows


    hotChocolate: Thanks, glad you think so!

    Last night something happened in the Shadows of Bakan


    That went Terribly wrong...

    The President of Adatan stepped out of Parliament, after working late he expected the Plaza to be Empty. However the Plaza was scattered with people wanting to talk with the President. He sighed and with a smile on his face stepped forward to greet the crowds. Then he realised that they wanted to talk about his controversial politics. The protesters shouted their words at The President, then as the President attempted to leave...


    and The President dropped to the Ground. Dead. His aides rushed to him but it was too late. The protesters fled the area. Then...


    to try and find their President's Killer.



    The Nation reels at the Assassination of their leader and looks to find answers. But some groups have different ideas about avenging the Presidents Death...

    Stay tuned for the Aftermath!

    Thanks for watching! Come back and Comment!

    Great work, may I ask what the cemetery kit and cathedral lot are? Not many take the time to assemble such realistic airports and cemeteries.

  • Hello everybody. Due to having a lack of time and motivation to update, then due to technical difficulties, I haven't updated my City Journal in awhile. I've made some changes to Adatan and will present these in the New Year. This means I won't be continuing the story so disregard whats been before. But for now enjoy this Christmas update!
