Jylland - Indeed danish Edit

I really couldn't help myself when i saw this, i have to confirm it, Yes Jylland is indeed the danish name for Jutland, and i should know being danish (although i live on Sjælland which i have no idea what is called in english) so for everyone who doubt that Jylland is danish, it is. Now i really have to find that game...

Region vs. Nation Edit

Wouldn't it be more accurate to describe Jylland as a nation rather than just a region? For one thing, I don't really see the sense in calling it a "region" when it's composed of two landmasses that are separated by sea. However, as a nation I think it does meet the criteria for being classified as such. I mean, it's a collection of regions and cities that lies outside the influence the Archadian Empire and the Rozarrian Empire. The only problem with this idea is that Jylland doesn't seem to have any sort of central government that is made too apparent in the game. It does mention Archduke Beaudonis, but it doesn't seem like there's an Archduke presiding over Jylland during the events of the game itself. The closest thing to a central government that is referenced in the game is the Five Lords of Jylland, who are spoken of but not really elaborated upon. I do suppose their lack of government could be because of the judges, though. But on the other hand, Jylland does have its own militia of sorts, the Jylland Defenders of Peace, so I would say that would also be another factor in it constituting as a nation as opposed to a region. Any thoughts on the matter? –Nahald 21:39, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

Hmm, I'm not sure. The main drawback seems to be what you pointed out: the lack of any central government or head of power. There is no capital, and since we do not know where Jylland ends and Rozarria begins, or what lies west of the Rupie Mountains and such, we cannot assume borders either. It's somewhat odd, though: why are Judges in the spiritual golem form only present in that region? The power structure is never really elaborated upon at all; the Baron Illua poisoned isn't even seen in the game. There's really not enough information to call it a politically sanctioned country/state/nation. 8bit 21:49, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
Not by any chance, since Ordalia belongs to Rozarria, and Loar belogs to god-knows-who. So, Jylland is basically the area where Ordalia meets Loar, being a zone, rather than a nation or a region. - Henryacores^ 22:08, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
Er, I'm pretty sure Ordalia doesn't belong completely to Rozarria, I mean, Dalmasca is in Ordalia and they're still an independent nation. Besides, that political map shown in that cutscene FFXII only shows some of Rozarria's area of influence, not all of it. So we can't say for sure how far Rozarria's reach is, but I'm fairly certain they don't rule over Jylland at all. But all the same, I still believe their is a strong case for Jylland being considered its own nation. The fact that it had an Archduke at one point in time and, during the events of the game, had five lords, a militia, and judges that upheld the law of the land has to count for something. –Nahald 22:18, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
