Wow! I am awed & impressed & viridly envious! I'd love to know how you went about creating the geography and the toponymy and the map. 

I've always thought that there are certain bits of conlanging that, though they are hugely important to me, I'd like to subcontract rather than undertake myself. Such as font creation. And such as geography & map creation. Perhaps one day in future, conlanging/conworlding will be so mainstream that one can actually commission one's own, and not just gaze covetously at others' as I have at yours...
