New Llandudno and Subsidiaries (// ( (listen))) is one of 4 territories located within Empire of Aenopia, comprised of a field with a thin forest running along its spine alongside a small playground at the top. Formerly hosting the Capital of Aenopia and New Cymru, its city New Llandudno lost the title to New Aberdare following the annexation of Greater New Aberdare. Although it has no inhabitants, Aenopian law is enforced by the Emperor, and the territory is defended by the Aenopian Airforce.
The territory was annexed immediately after the formation of Aenopia alongside its Urban counterpart, for which was known as the "Federation of Aenopia", and quickly became the host of the capital city of the nation due to a lack of other suitable areas.
Etymology and terminology
The name New Llandudno comes from the Welsh seaside resort named Llandudno located in North Wales. The city was named utilising the rule that Settlements in Aenopia are named after Welsh towns and Cities, usually with the prefix 'New' added to the start. This rule is excepted by Port Machyllneth, which features 'Port' as a Prefix, and the cities of White and Sough, which are both named after the local area.
The suffix 'And Subsidiaries' refers to the wider area around the city of New Llandudno, which includes the site of SR-02, a large section of the field and a large chunk of the forest.
'Llandudnian' is the official demonym used to describe something belonging to or originating from New Llandudno, this is also the demonym for an individual from New Llandudno. Technically, 'New Llandudno' can refer to the entire territory, or to the infrastructure of the area such as New Llandudno Joint Airfield; there is a small distinction between the subjects.
New Cymru Era
The territory was initially annexed during the existence of the largely controversial New Cymru and became part of Terra and Subsidiaries on 16 May 2019. It was initially named New Llandudno following annexation, however a few days later it received a name change to become Terra for unknown reasons. The territory itself only made up a small amount of the claim, with the majority of the territory consisting of 4 local streets with roughly 100+ residents living there.
The size of Terra and Subsidiaries was decreased to include what is now Greater New Aberdare (Which was known as Weissera castle, part of the name of a song produced by Blue Öyster Cult) and New Llandudno and Subsidiaries as a result of concerns to the obscene claim, which it remained as for the rest of New Cymru's short life. Following the dissolution of New Cymru, a document was published highlighting which so-called 'Territories' would go to which nations. New Llandudno and Subsidiaries was earmarked for Logan's next nation, which became Aenopia.
Following the dissolution of the largely-controversial state, the territory had been earmarked for Aenopian annexation as part of a document created by New Cymru. As a result, it was immediately annexed as part of the greater New Llandudno and Subsidiaries area and alongside the annexation, the city received a name change back to New Llandudno on July 1 2019. It became the first territory annexed as part of the new nation, however it wasn't long before Aenopia itself was annexed as part of Empire of Emosia. The city of New Llandudno was quickly named as the capital of the Dominion, and remained as such during its time as a Dominion of Emosia.
Following the independence of Aenopia on 15 August 2019, New Llandudno was again named as the Capital of the newly named Empire of Aenopia, and retained this title through the annexation of Aenopian Calver and Aenopian Teme in July and August 2019 respectively. The city retained the status of Capital for a further 10 days after the Empire was formed, before it was replaced by New Aberdare.
On 26 August 2019 however, the territory of Greater New Aberdare was annexed and as a result, New Llandudndo lost its capital status in favour of the smaller yet populated New Aberdare. During November 2019, it was decided that Aenopia needed a road system akin to New Eiffel's road system, which was described by HRH Logan I as being 'Impressive'. The territory was quickly chosen to be a suitable location for an experimental road system, and the routes were planned out following research into the suitable roads. The first of these, AM-01, was opened on 21 January 2020 during a formal ceremony, with plans to open SR-01, the road connecting the motorway to New Llandudno in Spring 2020.
New Llandudno is covered by trees and is 124m² (0.071 hectares). Situated next to the Calder Valley line, the city often see trains passing roughly every 15 minutes. In the center of the city, nicknamed New Llandudno Square, is a large boulder with a small tree growing behind. This is where SR-01 ends and diverges into SR-02. New Llandudno is surrounded on one side with an embankment roughly 70° leading up towards the main field in New Llandudno and Subsidiaries, and another at roughly the same angle which leads down to the fence separating the city from the railway line and more importantly, separating Aenopia with the United Kingdom.
New Llandudno, like the rest of Aenopia and its macronational host Great Britain, has a temperate climate. Temperatures are usually within a range of 2 °C - 7 °C in winter but can drop as low as -11 °C. In summer, the average temperature range is 12 °C - 21 °C, but can rarely reach as high as 33 °C. Winters are characterized by rain and, in recent years, large downfalls of snow. Summers are warm and humid with occasional heavy rainstorms, however, there are usually only about one or two thunderstorms per year. The record temperature recorded in New Llandudno was 40.2 °C, however, the accuracy of such is often questioned due to the position of the thermometer.

Due to its location and infrastructure, New Llandudno and it's associated territory is the most transport-reliant in Aenopia, with the territory featuring 3 roads and plans for a joint Airport and Airforce base. Situated next to the city of New Llandudno in its Macronational host is the Calder Valley line, which often see trains passing roughly every 15 minutes to British settlements such as Manchester, Blackburn, Preston, Blackpool, York and Leeds. Plans are underway for a joint airport-airforce base to be built close to New Llandudno, for which will see flights to New Aberdare operated by Aenopian Air delivering small supplies. It is expected that the first flight will take off from New Llandudno Joint Airfield in 2021 utilizing planes built by Marco- an aviation company located in New Aberdare that builds aircraft.
SR-01 and SR-02
New Llandudno will be served by the 2 motorways SR-01 and SR-02 following commissioning of the 2 routes. The former will serve as a connection to AM-01 and the latter will connect New Llandudno with New Llandudno Joint Airfield (currently under development). The former begins at an intersection at New Llandudno Square, which connects to SR-02 which goes towards New Llandudno Joint Airfield. It then heads Northwards through the Aenopian forest before arriving at the intersection between the road and AM-01. Here, the road terminates and merges with AM-01. The path which is designated as SR-01 is believed to have existed for many years, and regularly sees usage by dog walkers.
SR-02 is the 3rd and smallest road in New Llandudno and Subsidiaries and Aenopia, and travels across a short section of flattened grass from New Llandudno Square and SR-01 to the planned site of New Llandudno Joint Airfield. Thanks to the paths composition, it means that SR-02 is smoother than its longer and more important counterpart SR-01.
As of February 2020, neither roads have been formally opened, with the prime reason being due to the muddiness of both roads at the time of inspection and the presence of large tree trunks making SR-01 bumpy. It is expected that SR-01 and SR-02 will both be opened in March 2020 in a formal ceremony.
New Llandudno and Subsidiaries formerly had a railway station located adjacent to the west side. Stansfield Hall railway station opened in 1869 and predominantly received services from Halifax to Burnley as an alternative to Todmorden railway station. However the station was closed by 1949  and demolished a few years later. No traces remain of the station. Next to the station sat Stansfield Hall signalbox which was initially a 16 lever L&Y frame which was extended to 20 levers when additional railway lines were added nearby. By 1944 it had expanded to 24 levers. As with other boxes in the area, it closed on 22 October 1973 when Preston Power Box took over control of this section of line.
Aenopia follows the basic principles of Western Culture due to its geographical location in the world and subsequently, its population. Some Christian holidays which have become embedded into Western society (Christmas, Easter, ect.) are recognized by the population as National Holidays and as a result, celebrated. As a result, New Llandudno and the rest of the territory also follows the same basic culture which has been implemented into Western society and the rest of Aenopia as well.
English is the most commonly spoken language in Aenopia, both in the city of New Llandudno and Aenopia itself, known and used daily by the entirety of the population. English is the only language used for government business, although some Welsh is rarely used for more ceremonial occasions. The nation itself also accepts Welsh as a national language, however, it is unknown whether the population actually speaks Welsh.
French has been unusually adopted as the Official Symbolic language of New Llandudno and Subsidiaries, and so as a result is utilised in signage amongst other things. It is not the official language of the Territory, however, due to an absence of French-speakers in Aenopia. An example of French being used within the territory is the "Welcome to New Llandudno" road sign, for which the bilingual sign features both English and French on.
