What is this?

Posted by Kazuya on 8 November 2018 in English (English)

I was looking around the map and found this mess of enclaves and exclaves. Was this done intentionally?

It looks funny but probably it's intentional. First I thought it is a mistake in tagging administrative borders. But the country that the enclaves belong to is a "republic" so I guess it is supposed to be this way.

Also, all of it is owned by one user according to the overview map.

This has been brought up like many times. Still, I dont totally get it way though.

I guess it just simulates the country in the moment of civil war. I would rather do it using more military tagging than administrative but it's rather individual choice. Also in most cases of civil war which came to my mind (Afghanistan, Ukraine, Syria and Mexico) there is no tagging of de facto boundaries at all.

This is Karamsk, my neighbour. In particular the state of the borders reminds me of the Yugoslav Wars, although I'm not sure how accurate my assumption is. It'd be interesting to translate the names of the subdivisions. That could tell us a bit about his intentions.

The country's owner made one post about Karamsk's history here. Last time I asked him he said that options for history was quite open, and that it had not been finalised yet.
