Shoreline is a City in the Commonwealth of New Virginia situated in North America. Shoreline was founded as the Crown Dependency of Terentia on 16 November 2013 by an Austenasian Imperial Decree, transitioning into a Town on 3 December 2014.

Etymology

Shoreline is named after the Shoreline Amphitheatre, which is frequented often by fans of the jam band scene, and was created by Bill Grahm, the original promoter of the Grateful Dead. Shoreline was originally known as Terentia, and was named after the first Emperor of Austenasia, Terry I, Emperor of Austenasia.

History

Shoreline was founded as the Crown Dependency of Terentia on 16 November 2013 by an Austenasian Imperial Decree, transitioning into a Town on 3 December 2014. From its annexation until just under a year later on 31 October 2014, Terentia consisted of an uninhabited piece of land situated in the garden of Lord Admiral Lewis' place of residence. On 31 October, Terentia was expanded, annexing the whole of the property by the request of its six residents. In the summer of 2018, Terentia began to undergo a mass change. Throughout 2017, the cultural and spiritual attitudes of Terentia began shifting towards the culture and music of the rock band, The Grateful Dead. Many began to see the culture and slang of deadheads, the people who followed the Grateful Dead from show to show, come into Terentia. In summer of 2018, the Town Council began officially recognizing this culture as that of the Terentian people. Throughout the course of a few months, several changes happened, including the changing of Terentia's flag, as well as the legalization of several different psychoactive chemicals. On 17 October 2018, Terentia expanded with the annexation of an uninhabited exclave to the south-west of the property. This new area of land was named Kush. In early 2020, Terentia followed several other Austenasian territories, notably New Richmond in declaring independence from Austenasia, forming a new state, the Commonwealth of New Virginia.
