The name Ossenkirch comes from a combination of the Russian word for "Fall" (Осень, pronounced "osen") and the German word for "Church" (kirche). "Falls Church" is the name of the founder's irl hometown. The Russian-German combination naming scheme is also used in naming towns and buildings.
Ossenkirch is located on a mountainous, dry plains island, high above sea level. (~50 blocks). The island is scattered with jungle and oak trees, and the terrain is abundant of massive cliffs, overhangs, and canyons. Unfortunately, due to it's biome, oak trees and seeds take much longer to grow. Some trees, such as spruce, are impossible to grow there. Despite this, trade with Lyra, which has an abundance of spruce, has made it possible for Ossenkirchians to incorporate more spruce into builds. On the flip side, wheat grows very quickly. With the construction of the Uber-Farm in Stolstad, wheat has become a large export and source of food (as bread) within Ossenkirch.
Currently, the economy of Ossenkirch is very basic.
Wheat and in conjunction, hay bales, are the main export of Ossenkirch. Due to the construction of the Uber-Farm in Stolstad, automatic mass wheat production is made easy.
With the construction of a mass tree farm in Dynapos, oak wood, logs, and saplings have also become a large export of Ossenkirch.
With the new abundance of oak wood, charcoal production is much easier, and is now traded with nearby nations.
Ossenkirch imports stacks of spruce wood from the nearby ally Lyra regularly.
So far, Ossenkirch has been mostly peaceful, and has made alliances with several nearby nations.
Ossenkirch was founded by user Toxicy, on June 10th, 2018, after leaving Yoahtl. Him and user memeaf found the mountainous plains biome, and settled in.
Within the first week of it's existence, Ossenkirch made alliances with the aforementioned Lyra and Pripyat.
"Saving Private Chandi" Incident
On June 20th, 2018, government official Chandi95 accidentally trespassed into England, and was pearled. Despite there being no warning that England was restricted, he was held for nearly 3 weeks. Eventually, he was released on the conditions that we would deliver a book with his apology to The Order Of St. Marcus. On July 11th, 2018, he met with a member of the Order, user Marcus_Flaminius, at the Voting Tree in Mount Augusta. The transaction was a success, and he returned home with no parade in his honor.
The Seven Minute War
On July 8th, 2018, four raiders entered Dithmarschen and pearled BolleDeBoll, Commissariat of Foreign Affairs in Maltovia. Being so close in proximity, user Toxicy made his way over to Dithmarschen and was also foolishly pearled. Respawning, he headed back to Dithmarschen, this time accompanied by citizens byeolsatang, Tornado89 and Acalypheae. Ahead of them was government official memeaf, along with citizens from Vinland, who eventually tracked down and pearled the raiders, freeing Toxicy and BolleDeBoll. The raider's home settlement was found, and was temporarily occupied by Ossenkirch, Vinland, and Maltovia. Citizen Acalypheae specifically liberated a donkey from it's assumedly abusive previous owners, giving it a new home in Stolstad, and the loving new name, Kevin.
Formation Of SESU
After the events of The Seven Minute War and the Nazi bombing of Threepton, citizens and government officials within the Plus Plus thought it was high time to create an official alliance.
Religions and Beliefs
Based on a statue built by government official byeolsatang, Dirt! ism is based on the worshiping of the worst- I mean best result from cracking open Fossils: Dirt! A statue of Dirt Dirting Man (or most known by his nickname, just simply Dirt Man) is located at the entrance of the Uber Farm in Stolstad.
Cities, Outposts and Settlements
Stolstad is the capital of Ossenkirch, and the oldest city. It includes a town hall, mass storage system, rail station, Uber-Farm, and a bakery. The majority of the population currently lives in Stolstad. (~14, mostly the more active citizens.)
The local police force is the SSPD (Stolstad Police Department.)
Formerly an abandoned melon farm with a small cobblestone hut. Annexed on June 19th, 2018, Ossenkirch plans to turn it into a farming town by the coast. Currently, it is being used as a massive oak tree farm, and produces most of the nation's charcoal. The melons have since been removed.
Formerly Riverland, an abandoned settlement a couple hundred blocks east of Ossenkirch. On June 20th, 2018, several Ossenkirchians occupied the town and took it over. Ossenkirch plans to rebuild and grow the ruined town, and keep the old buildings intact to preserve them. There are many plans for future infrastructure, but not much work has been done yet, due to resources being implemented into securing the nation, before any real building is done. Currently, only around 4 citizens live in Rekaland.
