Van Luxemburg is a country which is set on the van Luxemburgian continent, a man-made copy of Europe, with some differences. It has strong ties with The Vuhifellian States, Wingarde, The Tokera, Kjata Major and others.
After an unfortunate go of events, Grand Duke Floris II was forced to leave, flee Europe. His loyals and he left from Rotterdam, and sailed for months to an "promised land" on the horizon, promised by even the first Medicinemen travelling around Germania. The story was well-preserved, and Floris II went. The travel wasn't exactly easy. Many uprisings of his loyals were peacefully settled, and people almost starved to death on the long journey, because of insufficent food and water, aswell as personal murders.
After exactly 6 Months and 3 days, the ships arrived on the shores of Van Luxemburg. Floris II and his loyals quickly saw that there was something unusual with the island. It showed strange similarities with their own lands. Most loyals, tired of travelling, wanted to go back to their homes. Floris II, a man which wanted to stay here, ordered to make a complete reconstruction of their European lands, so that nobody wanted to return home again. The first building finished was, obviously, his own palace, which still exists, and stands in the Centre of Luxembourg.
