Myself I lived in a city of 600 people and later 1500 before moving to a village* of over 60,000 people on the outskirts of a major city where I moved later in life with close to 3 million residents.
So I wonder what constitutes a large or small population to you? To me 6000 sounds pretty large for a rural town, but my anecdotal experience may be heavily skewed by my sample size.

Additionally I lived near an area known for wine a couple of years ago (I move around a lot, sort of a nomad) and got to visit the wineries, I prefer sweet wines, typically whites, though I've experienced some great smooth red wines. My Polish roommate a few years ago had this habit of bring home the most awful almost blood-tasting red wines. What sort of wines are common in the region you grew up in?

Incidentally, since when was Dravia in eastern europe anyway?
I've had even Romanians get pissed off at having their country described as 'eastern european'! Dravia borders, presumably, Austria, the Czech Republic, it can't be too far from bordering Italy even. It's clearly a Central European country.

Oh, not the CR, I guess there's a 'Hungarian panhandle' to the north?

And hell, Italian irredentists would have claimed Mongolian as an Italian dialect if it had been within 100km of Trieste.

Rusanov, there's being a fascist, and then there's being incapable of responding to anything without going "beep boop i am a fascist" for twenty paragraphs. Also you live in Louisiana and you are calling a Welshman American.

I really like this sort of deep world and conlang building that should go hand in hand.

I just hope I can make my alt-history Aquitaine as interesting. (my conculture won't be a Romance speaking group, though)

I wish that everyone would just play along with the pretend game and not break out of character.

I don't really have a question to ask. But I enjoy reading the answers from your penpal in Dravia.

What's Tedur's favorite dish? And do they have any good bread or pastries?

To clarify: was Dravia a Soviet satellite, or was it an autonomous communist power like Yugoslavia or Albania?

This is some really good stuff. I like how this Dravian guy is just no-nonsense awesomeness. Would it be all right if I asked a question of my own? Basically, could you ask Ted about the architecture in Dravia, and the different styles that exist within the capital and around the countryside?

Thanks very much. :D

What's the largest shoe size available in most shoe shops there? I have to shop at freak shops in Germany.

How is the quality of translated software, instruction manuals, books &c. into Dravian?

Does Ted vote, and if he does, what are his voting preferences?

What does Tedur think of Dravian cops?

There's a (work in progress) map of Dravia (it's a big file).

Tedur's hometown is in the south-east of the country in the contat of Valeira, on the road between Sojane and Alb Monastare.
