The Principality of BurgundyEdit
Soon after the Republic State of Hessia seceeded from Germany, it took over control of newly aqquired France. One of the regions that needed reign was Burgundy. To ease the load on Hessia, Hessia alloted the region of Burgundy to become a vassal state. Burgundy would have it's own economy and government, but would pay a percentage of all taxes aqquired by the Government. In return, Hessia would protect Burgundy. Francois Decamont, the Hessian government official tasked to be the head of Burgundy. He quickly set up the government to be a Principality, and he would become the Monarch. He also then setup the Maison du Gouvernement, the Burgundian equivalent of a parliament.
The Land of BurgundyEdit
Located in Central France, Burgundy is a lush, yet diverse region. Made up of plainslands, forests, and mountains, Burgundy is home to many natural resources. The climate and temperature of the region makes the area perfect for growing grapes, the main export of Burgundy. While the fact of climates and temperature is no longer a factor due to hydroponic farms (see Economics), making wine in Burgundy has been a cultural mainstay for many decades.
The Principality of Burgundy is a fledgeling nation, with limited economic power. But despite the limitations, they are known for exporting some of the best wine. As stated above, the climate made the area perfect for grape growing. Years of culture has brought Burgundy to being famed for its wine. They grow their staple crops and wine graps in large domes with hydroponic technology. Due to lack of other natural resources, and lack of funds to construct methods of accessing other natural resources in the area, Burgundy is forced to import ores and lumber. Burgundy is also a landlocked region and (currently) has no access to ports.
