Language

Ulvam is a country of a singular language but two distinct dialects. There is the Osgimi dialect in the east, centered around Osgim, for which this dialect is named, known for its final vowel reduction and lateral and nasal flip-flopping. The Osgimi dialect is the more widely-spoken and widely-learned dialect of Ulvash. There is also the Ustromi dialect in the west, centered around Ustrom, for which the dialect is named, known for its unstressed vowel reduction, deletion of L after vowels, and Shohuanese /ɘ/. However, because the Ulvash language has spelling that has not changed since the 1600s, both dialects are written the same, as they only diverged at around the late 1800s to early 1900s.

Symbols

The Ulvash flag is an uneven vertical tricolor of red, green, and white, with the red stripe being four times longer than the other two. It is said that the red on the flag represents courage and strength, the green represents the vast grasslands of the country, and the white represents hope, peace, and purity, as well as the shining coasts for which Ulvam names itself after. The emblem, featured on the flag, is meant to be a modernization of the old Bahdic tamga, which represents a ten-spoked wheel, representing progress and the drive the people have to get that progress, coupled with a Zarasaist crescent moon, also found on the flags of Shohuan and Arkamka, standing for the country's Zarasaist faith.
