About this deal

Bogdan of Cuhea, another Vlach voivode from Maramureș who had fallen out with the Hungarian king, crossed the Carpathians in 1359, took control of Moldavia, and succeeded in wrenching Moldavia from Hungarian control. His realm extended north to the Cheremosh River, while the southern part of Moldavia was still occupied by the Tatar Mongols. Really Gets Around: San Sombrèro's first official governor, Estrillio Vellasquez, had numerous illegitimate children. Mr Gleisner admitted that he and his co-writers focused on eastern Europe because they felt "no-one, even those who live there, is even sure of the geography of the area". The chicest accommodation in town is the Trybekka, Molvania's only gay-friendly boutique hotel, owned by local matinee idol Rycszard Nirjo. A cheaper option is Homestay, where "you can share a flat with an invalided pensioner or local resident serving a home detention sentence". However, the guide advises: "To really experience a country, you have to be cold, uncomfortable and woken at dawn by the sound of a local artisan clearing his throat and expectorating."

Molvania has many outstanding works of art, most of them plundered from Italy during the 17th-century wars. As far as home-grown talent goes, one need look no further than Jzacol Rebljeten (1583-1611). Rebljeten was a dedicated craftsman who had a detailed knowledge of anatomy that came from hours spent dissecting corpses. Interestingly, this proved of little direct benefit to his art, as he only ever painted landscapes. LEGO Genetics: Phaic Tănese botanists have apparently managed to graft watermelon with cressantheum and orchids with kidney beans. The Coroner Doth Protest Too Much: The "Father of Modern Molvanîa", Szlonko Busjbusj, died of natural causes: "he was assassinated". Banana Republic: San Sombrèro is a Central-American nation run by warlords, suffering from endless military coups.

The Jetlag Travel Guides provide examples for the following tropes:

The local drink in these parts is jzrnflek, a fierce liquor usually made from juniper berries and brake fluid. It is traditionally served before funerals (about two weeks before as a general rule, depending on the skill of the intensive care doctor) and it is considered quite an honour to be offered a glass. Rather than cause offence, the polite thing to do is accept a small amount and pretend to drink. If any of the liquor is accidentally swallowed there is no need to induce vomiting. This will happen quite naturally. Under the reign of Stephen the Great, all farmers and villagers had to bear arms. Stephen justified this by saying that "every man has a duty to defend his fatherland"; according to Polish chronicler Jan Długosz, if someone was found without carrying a weapon, he was sentenced to death. [35] Stephen reformed the army by promoting men from the landed free peasantry răzeși (i.e. something akin to freeholding yeomen) to infantry ( voinici) and light cavalry ( hânsari), reducing his dependence on the boyars, and introduced guns. The Small Host ( Oastea Mică) consisted of around 10,000 to 12,000 men. The Large Host ( Oastea Mare), which could reach up to 40,000, was recruited from all the free peasantry older than 14 and strong enough to carry a sword or use a bow. This seldom happened, for such a levée en masse was devastating for both economy and population growth. In the Battle of Vaslui, Stephen had to summon the Large Host and also recruited mercenary troops.

Just to the north of Svetranj, at 1120 Sv Livisnki Obala, you will find a humble-looking stone residence that was actually the birthplace and childhood home of Djar Rzeumerten, arguably Molvania's most famous philosopher. Born in 1768, Rzeumerten's greatest achievement was to prove that he did not exist. Beethoven Was an Alien Spy: Molvanîans claim, among other things, that one of the thieves which were crucified next to Jesus was Molvanîan and that the 30 pieces of silver given to Judas actually came from the town of Dzrebo. The names of the region in other languages include French: Moldavie, German: Moldau, Hungarian: Moldva, Russian: Молдавия ( Moldaviya), Turkish: Boğdan Prensliği, Greek: Μολδαβία. Other Slavic groups reside in this country as minority groups, such as Russians, Ukrainians, Polish and Slovakians.Traditionally, Roma slaves were divided into three categories. The smallest was owned by the hospodars, and went by the Romanian-language name of țigani domnești ("Gypsies belonging to the lord"). The two other categories comprised țigani mănăstirești ("Gypsies belonging to the monasteries"), who were the property of Romanian Orthodox and Greek Orthodox monasteries, and țigani boierești ("Gypsies belonging to the boyars"), who were enslaved by the category of landowners.
