Franconia

Franconia (German: Franken) is a region in Germany, covering the northern part of the state of Bavaria but is culturally and linguistically rather distinct from Bavaria proper. In fact, Franconians and Bavarians don't like each other much. This may be due to the fact that Franconia was originally part of the Stem Duchy of Franconia, but eventually ended up in the hands of the Bavarians in the wake of the Napoleonic Wars. The unofficial capital of the region is the city of Nuremberg. The region is further subdivided into three parts, Upper Franconia (Oberfranken), Middle Franconia (Mittelfranken) and Lower Franconia (Unterfranken). It is also something of a joke that Franconia would seceede some day in the future, forming its own state inside Germany. This however is purportedly prevented by the fact that the Lower-, Middle-, and Upper Franconians hate each other more than they hate the Bavarians… LOL

Also home to absolutely every German that Thande knows in real life, as opposed to on AH.com, for some reason. Apparently it produces a lot of chemists…
