Capital city: Hoogenbosch
The oldest freestate where Ian McGuff landed and built a massive fortress to protect him and his settlers against natives. Contrary to what everybody thinks, Guffingford was discovered by that Scotsman. He founded the small town known as St Jacob's now, but its real name is Scotsborough. This name passed into obscurity when the first Knootian settlers arrived. The name of Ian McGuff still lives on in the name Guffingford. In Rooi-Nassau the language Hoogs was made official. Some thirty years later the Knootian explorer and settler Arnoldus Jacobsz. DeVrient landed on these shores, founding several fortresses and trade posts what was later called "Rooi-Nassau".
