The United Kingdom of Devonshire or just Devonshire (called Royaume-Uni de Devonshire in French; Großbritannien von Devonshire in German) is a sovereign state found in Western Europa. It includes some overseas territories such as French Guiana. It was one of the biggest countries. It is bordered by Shire, Italy and Aquitani.

Despite being large, it is sparsely populated because of the size of some of the national parks. There are many wild areas that are uninhabitable by humans.

Devonshire has one of the largest forests in the world, the Frost National Forest.

History

Devonshire once belonged to Shire, until a war broke out that separated the two countries. Devonshire did not gain its independence until March 15, 2200.

Prehistory

Devonshire was once inhabited by early Germanic, Gaulish, Norman, Anglo-Saxon, Roman and Greek tribes. All of these tribes unified to create Shire and Devonshire combined.

Anomalies

Anomalies are strange and seldom-seen vortices that resemble wormholes. They appear in random places in not only Devonshire, but other countries as well. These strange anomalies may pick up whatever is in the vortex's path, for example, a vortex might pick up an Emu and place it in a random place throughout the world.

The reason for the anomalies are unknown, but it may have something to do with it being an alternate universe; since Devonshire is in an alternate universe.

Animals that occur because of anomalies are called "vagrants".

Technology

Devonshire has one major technological improvement, recreating extinct species. Other countries in Europa have developed this as well, but not as well as Devonshire's technology.

MuscivoraOccidentalisSmit

Royal Flycatchers can be seen in the Frost National Forest in the summer. It is another species occurring because of anomalies.

Devonshire has over 500 species of birds, from hummingbirds to ostriches. Many of these species were recreated because they had become extinct. As a part of this program, many species have been released and have made it. Hence why there are New World flycatchers as well as other species not normally found. The national bird is the war eagle; it can be seen on the coat of arms as well as the slasher.

Many people enjoy birdwatching, such as Michelle Hellstern, Charles Dunn and George Travis, who pursue them with a passion.

Many natives enjoy whalewatching.

Reptiles

Main: List of reptiles of Devonshire.

Reptiles are very limited in Devonshire, not very many species can be found. (It could also be because they aren't extensively studied.) The birds possibly out compete with them.

Avimammalids

Main: List of avimammalids of Devonshire.

Avimammalids are some of the rarest animals found in Devonshire. They have mammal and bird-like characteristics. They have fur and lay eggs. The horned running bird has retractable claws on its feet. Many of the running birds, (not limited to the wolf running bird) are one of the most aggressive of all the avimammalids, making many species hard to study. However, the baiji-kite is very playful has been known to approach people and even play with them and protect them from crocodiles.

Devonshire in fanfiction

Devonshire appears in two fanfics, the first one being about a Hetalia original character, Alisha Adams being sent into the real world. The second one is a Wild Kratts fanfic, involving Martin and Aviva being lost in Devonshire.

There might be more in the future.

Theory: does Devonshire exist?

Template:Real world view In the real world, no. However, there is a possibly it exists in a parallel universe. Steven Weinberg,[1] Brian Greene,[2][3] Max Tegmark,[4] Alan Guth,[5] Andrei Linde,[6] Michio Kaku,[7] David Deutsch,[8] Leonard Susskind,[9] Raj Pathria,[10] Sean Carroll, Alex Vilenkin,[11] Laura Mersini-Houghton,[12][13] and Neil deGrasse Tyson[14] all believe that a multiverse is possible.

Therefore, theoretically, it could exist. Whether or not it does, is up to the individual... but I like to think it does exist. Somewhere, someway, somehow.
