Old Man Roho
Rohoveyan is a nation to the north of Piggy Planet. It is relatively old, having gained independence after tribal and colonial union in 1798. It is typically snowy.
The name comes from the old colony Rohoveyan (now called the Rohoveyan Region, the settlement there now being called Rohoveyan City), since that was the colony's name, that's the name the nation adopted even after it expanded west and northward. The name "Rohoveyan" comes from the Rohoveyan civilization, an Oltakaken native group that lived around the Rohovey (Rohoveya in Fall and Winter) River in that area. Their civilization was named after the river since they lived around the river, and colonists adopted that name for their colony. The name "Rohoveya" comes from Old Oltakaken origin, meaning "River of life" or "Living water." The name translated directly from Rohoveyanic means "Alive Springwater."
The currency is the Rohoveyanic Towey. For more info, see Towey.
Big WIP, this page is for Piggy Planet!
The area was home to an old Oltakaken race that had since emigrated upwards and formed the Kontro Empire. However, before this or the Rohoveyan civilization, we find them. A hunter-gatherer civilization with some shacks along the river. Two settlements, 16 miles away from each other have been found: Koluk Settlement (Called Settlement 01 after rediscovery, then more unearthing determined the actual name), and Settlement 02. It was clear the only reason these shacks existed was for easy access to water, and for shelter. The shacks were about the size of a shed now, relatively small with not a lot of living space. They were built tall, however, to avoid any raids from bears that lived in the area. There was typically a desk and a bed in the room, as well as a side of the hut that stored the family there's tools. After these Proto-Kontros had so many kids, about 3-5, the dad would move to another shack so there was enough room in the original shack. However, he would still care for the kids, and the family was just spread out among multiple shacks.
The civilization seems to have come from the west around 3200 BC. They lived there without any major events until about 1000-800 BC, when they began to migrate northward. This was likely due to the river pollution caused by the Solnaks, an Oltakaken race that would later branch into the Rohoveyanic civilization. The Solnaks had been dumping their body waste among other forms of waste down the river, that got up to the Proto-Kontros, who then deemed the water unsafe to drink, and went northward.
The Solnaks, who had figured out irrigation and water-filtering, had no problem with this, and a group of them began to move up toward the Rohoveya river, where they would settle as the Rohoveyan Civilization
The Rohoveyan Civilization then took over the entirety of the river, and really did thrive. The golden age of the New World (500 BC-100 CE) was taking place shortly afterward, and huge advancements were made, specifically the creation of paper from dry leaves being formed in a complex process. Only super important people used paper since it was so hard to make back then. Around this time, trade was happening between the south and the Western Isles, and the Old World was beginning to take notice of the New World although they had not come to explore or colonize yet.
The Rohoveyans stayed pretty close within themselves, and never did stray far from their land. They were peaceful, and no empire really sought to take them out because they had no reason to aside from land. But, military defenses were strong, as Rohoveyan's growing population, and paranoia being a trait amongst the new Rohoveyan dynasty, defense and military was highly invested on. This later came to be useful when the Snouters tried attacking it in 1743.
The Colonial Period came after the Exploration Period, and is generally agreed to have started in 1680. Rohoveyan was a bit unique as they had never been a destination for the travellers in the Exploration Period, and never really explored themselves. They were quite happy where they were, and it came as a big shock when the powers of Snouter came into their territory.
TBA this part.
Treaty of Verkash
Due to independence protests, the Snouters feared a war against the Rohoveyans they knew they were not ready for. They then decided to work it out with Porkland and the tribes in the area. Porkland did not like the idea, but they did not want Rohoveyan to have independence because of all its natural resources, including eggs.
The Treaty of Verkash (1784) was signed between Gerald XIII of Porkland, Hernan II of Snouter, Gerald I of Upper Rohoveyan, and Crossingbird Echtingsko of Lower Rohoveyan. It split the Ukurak Penninsula between Snouter, Porkland, Upper Rohoveyan, Lower Rohoveyan, and the Kontro Empire. The treaty led to some peace, but Porkland was quite unhappy with this descision. They believed the entire penninsula, or at least a good bit of it, should belong to them, and they didn't get very much compared to the two Rohoveyans and the Kontro Empire. So, they logically went to a territory war that they also decided would be a good war to take the eggs in. They failed in that planning, and the strong military defense built up by Rohoveyan 1,000 years earlier finally came to use. They destroyed Porkland, causing it to lose all its territory in the Ukurak Penninsula, and all of Modern-Day Rohoveyan altogether.
The split of Upper and Lower Rohoveyan was because of influences. There was much influence in Lower Rohoveyan, especially among the Porklandic. They were less native than the Upper Rohoveyanic population just south of them. Although both had been created by natives and colonists, the Lower nation received more influence than the Upper nation which spoke mainly Rohoveyanic and used Rohoveyanic architecture. You can see this harsh contrast in the Ukurak penninsula today!
Snouter began to creep into the west, and its influences eventually caused the tribes in the area to form Kanakatat, a tribal nation influenced by Snouter, which eventually joined Rohoveyan. This did not happen until far later, however.
Independence was never gained until 1798, and the treaty of Dé Yal was signed to unify Lower and Upper Rohoveyan later that year.

Today, Rohoveyan is a peaceful nation attempting to spread its peace to divided, poor nations such as Piggy Island. It also maintains good trade with developed nations.
Rohoveyan is broken up into 12 counties, which are then broken up into regions. There are also 2 territories, and 1 unincorporated territory in the very north.

The culture of Rohoveyan is very diverse due to the amount of groups there, ranging from Oltakaken traditions, Kolngonqwen cultures, Holpers traditions, and those from the settlers as well. These are often conglomerated into major forms of cuisine, art, holidays, and much more to form the amazing Rohoveyanic culture.
Throughout Rohoveyan, you will find different regions enjoy different types of food. However, there are some delicacies that are popular nationwide! Here are some of the most popular dishes, followed by victuals from specific regions in Rohoveyan! Different kinds of nectar, suet, and birdseed are extremely popular among the bird population, and many kinds of fruit and vegetable are popular among the swine population.
Rohoveyanic cuisine consists of a variety of things, typically including grass, apples, grain, worms, and bugs--especially the Rohoveyanic Scuttlebug, popular among the birds of the country. Kaluk' Sokalu, and Kaluk' Zashölâ are popular breakfast foods. As their name similarities may suggest, they are similar foods, both being grainy pancakes that are rich in flour, and cooked to crispness with other types of food mixed in such as worms and appleseeds. Kaluk' Sokalu is a kaluk that consists of a barley flour cooked for about 10 minutes on extremely high heat, creating a crisp texture with slight spots of intense flavor due to distribution on the cooking pan. During the cooking process, Kaluk' Sokalu should be flattened by a spatula regularly to produce the desired result. Worms, flies, and sunflower seeds are infused into the mixture, cooked into perfection in a certain way to produce a nice, bakery feel perfect for kickstarting your day. Kaluk Zashölâ is another kaluk not as crisp as Kaluk' Sokalu. They are cooked with excess wheat flour (typically, although rye Zashölâ are popular in Fladershkeld), and are not typically flattened, and are often quite tall. They are typically infused with grass and various types of fruit melted in due to extreme heat. Then, they are blended by some sort of ulurtak blender (A certain type of Rohoveyanic blender very different from the typical blender you think of today) so that it is virtually impossible to tell that they were created seperately. Although this is the desired result, when making Kaluk' Zashölâ at home, you typically won't take this extra step. They are then set to set in any kind of oven, the time depends on the oven type, until they are ready to be eaten in the end. You typically only want to eat one Kaluk' Zashölâ for breakfast as they are rich in nutrition, sugar, carbs, calories, fiber, and protein, and no more than one is needed. The typical serving for Kaluk' Sokalu is about 3-6 kaluks per meal. They are quite delicious, but not as nutritious.
Wormcakes are a delicacy all over Piggy Planet, but are especially popular in Rohoveyan. Some special cooking methods of wormcakes are Fulgukalu, The Old White Bacon, Pinksquirt, and Zaskyn. They are extremely popular breakfast foods along with insect sausage, muffins, and Lëfferköepfman Sandwiches, which are grain sandwiches toasted to a slight crisp with certain condiments and a certain type of wormcake in the middle. It is standard in Rohoveyan to have at least one piece of food, and one beverage. Beverages are often forms of juice, be it from fruit or insects, that are very tasty in your breakfast meal.
Rohoveyan is a very literate nation, mostly due to their highly successful school system, and millions of books have been published since then. Halupatata is often considered one of the literature capitals of the world due to the amount of great works and authors that came from there. Some great, world-renowned, famous authors include Bukal Kázôkaʃ, author of the Last Life in Space series, Koram Lukal, author and illustrator of popular series The Adventures of Jake, Nam Zakulakal and Ulukutat Korbakulu, authors of the wildly popular Never Die, Flockingston, and It's In The Trees series as well as novels such as Kayat, and Success.
Graphic novels and comics are also very popular along with chapter books. Koram Lukal's works are prime examples of Rohoveyanic graphic novels and comic books: Good and you can never put them down. Popular books include Çuk'çutat, and Journals from the 1980's. Popular series include The Adventures of Jake, and Livingstel.
A TV show called Rohoveyanic Magnificence, about art in Rohoveyan, is very popular.
Rubberpuck and hockey are the most predominantely liked sports in Rohoveyan. The Rubberpuck National Series is a competition between major cities' rubberpuck teams, and The Final Game is very popular, with around 96% of the population watching on TV, and 1% going to the actual, large stadium in which the game is held. (These stadiums are gigantic, even if it is still crowded, they are huge, I can't even explain. The top bleacher can make acrophobics pass out)
