Brittorcay was the least known of the Gallic states, probably because of its distance from the Mediterranean and the other cities. The nation was, however, able to take advantage of trade, enough to run an economy off it. While this hardly made that nation rich, it kept Brittorcay from falling into the poverty that gripped Paris. After the Gallic Unification War, Brittorcay became something of a distinct outpost, mostly used for military purposes.

History

Formation

Brittorcay was the last Gallic state to be officially formed, but still a relatively rich nation. For a long time, it had been a small fishing settlement, and Senone trade kick-started the nation's development into a major city. The city grew quickly, and after much deliberation, Brittorcay was officially formed. This new nation was immediately recognized as an economic powerhouse, and attracted trade from the Gallic States, Carthage, and the Senone Republic. Gathering its resources, Brittorcay was able to become a powerful nation.

Gallic Unification War

Brittorcay was the nation least effected by the Gallic Unification war. While they did reluctantly agree to fight in Paris, the abandoned their ally after losing their. Even when their own city was at stake, they fought weakly, eventually allowing the Orleanian army to take the city peacefully. While this brought nothing but disgust from Normandii, it did give them lenient terms from Orleans. It also made them an important city in the Gallic Empire, and by the time of the Empire's collapse, it would overshadow Normandii in almost every way.

Culture

Politics

While Brittorcay was technically controlled by the Lord (their name for a King) in practice, most of the power was in the hands of a collective of rich businessmen and traders. While this government was unofficial, their generally recognized leader was the person in charge of Brittorcay's fishing industry. This model of government was extensively popular with the business friendly population, and was arguably the most effective Gallic government, with the possible exception of Orleans.

Society

The Brittorcay society was incredibly industrious, and enormously effective capitalists. This was the hallmark of Brittorcay, and they were famed for this by other nations. This led to an opportunistic society, that took advantage of trade as much as possible. In addition, they were the second richest Gallic state, so luxury goods from Italy and Carthage often made their way to the city. This made Brittorcay an epicenter for high culture, and as a result the city soon became known as the golden city of the west, and most considered that description apt.
