Midgard on Planet Odin Picture

Wow this one of the biggest projects I´ve made so far, but it was awesome!
This is the political map, I will submit a geographical too, but later. Criticism
is welcome of course, but don´t forget this is the first time I made this kind of maps.
For full view zoom in or download it.

Residents: ca. 290 million
Colonized: 212 years ago
Heritage of the colonists: German Empire and Scandinavia


212 years ago, the German Empire and its close allied the Greater Scandinavian Empire started a space mission
to colonize one of the exoplanets they discovered 48 light years away. The probes found out, that there are
two planets in this system where life can exist, but one is completely covered with ice, the other one has a huge
ocean with only one continents and many islands but a perfect atmosphere.
1,2 million colonists were chosen to fly to the new planet through the cosmic string, which shortens the time to reach
it to just a few weeks. The idea was to create a perfect german-nordic culture on this planet with 12 mother cities
named after the old germanic gods, each creating beautiful cities and cultures, in some countries also completely
new architectures.
While the planet itself is called Odin, they named the capital of the planet Germania, after the people, it´s a huge metropolis
with 5 million residents. The cities, regions, rivers, mountains, seas and anything else was wether named after nordic or german
cities, persons and words for landscapes, some also just sounding german or nordic, but with no real meaning. There is a strict birth controll, so nature is not damaged too much by overpopulation, and because the medical development makes people get easily over 100 years old.
There are not many huge streets on the continent Midgard (nordic name for the world of humans), because antigravitation
vehicles are rather common and there is no need for many streets, cause all the "cars" can fly anyway.

The continent Midgard is stretching from polar regions down to tropical regions at the equator, but there´re no deserts
cause the continent isn´t really huge. The rest of the planet is mostly covered with water, way more than on earth.
Sadly this can cause enormous storms, but the weather controll technology is developed enough to neutralize these
storms mostly.

While some regions especially along the Neurhein (New Rhine) have many cities and lots of residents, especially
the far northern and jungle regions are not settled by many people, there´re huge regions where noone lives yet.
The most populated ones are:

Reichenberg, as the country with the main capital and a blooming sea trade,
Nolding and Itrilien with huge farming lands and mines and of course the Reichel Bay
in the southern part of Eisenmark.

Other civilizations on the earth have also started their colonization on other exoplanets, but the german one is the most
developed at the moment, trying to terraform the ice planet in the same system to get another planet. Also some moons
of the gas giants in the solar system Ymir (mythological first giant in nordic legends) are already settled, as well as asteriods
inside, mostly for scientific and military purposes.

Mankind didn´t meet any other intelligent species yet, it seems they´re alone and their fate is to spread intelligent life
in the galaxy on their own, until they can travel over the abyss between the galaxies to see if there´re other species, too. Or maybe they didn´t just search enough already?

Everything changes when a teenager called Ludwig Lohenheim from the sparsely populated Marland living near Neumünchen,
in the region Neu Bayern (New Bavaria) sees a mysterious light in the nearby Schwarzberge (black mountains)....
