The Principality of Saint Francoisbourg is a small island off the Argic mainland from Iverica. Saint Francoibourg is an autonomous region and protectorate of the Republic of Iverica.

Etymology

(WIP. The feast of RL Saint Frances of Rome is on 9 May, while Francis of Assisi is celebrated on 4 October. Either of these could be the date when Iberican settlers first arrived at the island. The first Saint of (A)rome would be a nice reference to Aroma, the second date in October would make more sense if they first needed to cross the Oriental Ocean.)

(WIP. How is the name translated into Iverican: Francisco, Franco, Francese, Franzo? How about the suffix: burgo, borgo, vourgo, borghese?)

Geography

(WIP. Isolated islands at the western end of Argis. Oceanic climate. What kind of fauna and flora live on this isolated island? Are there any other, smaller islands nearby? Highest elevation? Add 2-3 images as filler.)
