Origin of the name Petrova Edit

The name "Petrova" is derived from the creator's name, "Peter", with a Eastern European influence. Phonetically, it is pronounced petroh-vah. Coincidentially, the name "Petr" is "Peter" in most Eastern European countries. Originally, the "southern leg" of Russia was named the Caucasus Region or commonly known as Sochi.

The name "Petrova" was given to the newly founded country in 1976 by the founding Royal Family, the Petravos. Coincidentally, the country's name and the royal family's name is very similar in spelling with the last two vowels switched. However, it is a common mistake for people to think that the country's name came from the word "Petravo", hence the Petravo Royal Family. In some myths, the name Petrova was given to the country in honor of the first word of King Dmitry. Another myth is that the word came to be the country's name because the royal secretary had dyslexia and would often misspell the country's name when sending letters to foreign leaders. The Petrovar for Petrova is simply "Petrova".

HistoryEdit

Main article: History of Petrova

Founded in the mid 1900's, the present day country of Petrova is situated in the center of the map, between Russia, Ukraine, and Georgia. Petrova has gained the cultural admiration of Eastern Europe as well as Western Asia. But everything began in the late 1800's. Petrova was founded by the future Petrovan Royal Family, Naridah and Sergei Petravo. They were a poor family who settled in present day Chihiro, the country's cultural and political center. Soon after, the city of Chihiro was established, and prospered steadily until the world wars. The country became even more prosperous during the world wars after providing the vast Russian and allies armies with food and arms. When the technology revolution occured in the west, Petrova, like its neighbors were struggling with its economy. By the 80's, the country is home to over 40 million inhabitants. There were mass starvation, since the soil was barren and the southern half of Petrova is mountainous, until a genious farmer named Sim Bob Sim came up with the technique called "love thy soil". The idea was to water the soil with the special water found in the the Sea of Azov (now Sea of Petrova). The soil immediately became soft and allowed for farming. Around 1970, the people were fed up with the Russians not paying attention to them. The country of Petrova wasn't declared a country until the Petro-Russo Revolution in 1975.
