This article is about the state in Dragoonasag. For other uses, see Penoshia (disambiguation).

Penoshia is a state in the nation of Dragoonasag. It is a Drageastern state. Between 1821 and 1847, the state was part of Salviana. The state split from Salviana in 1847, and was called North Salviana from 1847 to 1853.

GeographyEdit

Penoshia has five geographical regions. The Western Plains region is located in northwest Penoshia. This is a region of flat land and is also the most fertile region of the state. Much of central Penoshia lies in the Central Mountains and Valleys region, a region of forested mountains and valleys. The South Mountains region lies to the south of the Central Mountains and Valleys region. This region, along with the Northeast Mountains region of northeast Penoshia and the Penoshian-Myloan Mountains region, is mountainous, and motorists traversing these regions may have to use caution. Rivers in Penoshia include the Borderline River on the state's border with Salviana, the Peno River, the Batchunta River, the Salviana River, and the Cuahala River. Caulile Mountain is the highest point in Penoshia, and the area near the Borderline River in the Western Plains region is the lowest.

HistoryEdit

On May 25, 1847, all lands that Salviana had north of the Borderline River were given to a new state, called North Salviana. The reason for this was that the people of North Salviana did not agree with some decisions made by the governor of Salviana. Owen Tylton became the first governor of North Salviana. He served from 1847 to 1849, when Walt Odoms took over. Odoms, who served until 1858, was the one who suggested the name change from North Salviana to Penoshia, a word coming from the Parkufo words Peno (the name of the tribe of Parkufos who occupied the area before English-speaking settlers arrived) and ouzhiaa, meaning land. Penoshia means the land of the Peno. North Salviana became Penoshia in 1853. Salviana City served as the capital of North Salviana, and after the name change, the capital was relocated to Peno City. In 1860, the Penoshia governor received a letter from the Salviana governor, stating that Penoshia would either reunite with Salviana or fight in order to remain their own state. The Penoshian-Salvianan War began in 1861. Penoshian forces built Fort Kituntz near what is now Bestville. The war ended one year later, when Salvianan forces decided to surrender and allow Penoshia to remain a state. In 1867, Peter Jarington discovered six Parkufo carvings on Mount Kaffinger in Cain County. In 1868, Jake Caulile became the first to climb the mountain that now has his last name. On June 5, 1876, a great fire nearly destroyed the city of Natonelle. Reconstruction began in 1877, and by 1898, Natonelle was fully recovered. In 1906, storms caused much damage in Jordson, Burton, Vesquinto, and Karxanno counties. Each of the four counties fully recovered by 1912. In 1910, North Salviana County was created as "a sign of Penoshia's past". An earthquake occurred near Gentryville and caused minor damage. In 1985, Fort Kituntz was rebuilt, and became a historic monument.
