The Nation's Name
The name, "Wonderchicken," is a misnomer. The nation's actual name is Wo'n Darshekeen, meaning the Wochik land of Darshek. When Wochiks first encountered English speaking explorers, the Wochik pronunciation of Wo'n Darshekeen (combined with the English-speakers' unfamiliarity with the Wochik language, Katothwa Re) led the newcomers to label the nation Wonderchicken on their maps. This corruption of the nation's actual name was somewhat exacerbated by the name by which most Wochiks refer to the revered Father of their nation, General (Vahkhb, in Katothwa Re) Tuvahn Darshek. Already in a frame of mind to hear "chicken" from the nation's name, the explorers mis-heard the Vahkhb's name as "Bob the Wonderchicken," and the rest, as they say, is history.
The result of this corruption has been continuous difficulty in maintaining positive relationships between the Wochik people and speakers of English. It is considered a vicious insult, for example, to compare a Wochik in any way to a chicken, and deadly duels have been fought over unintentional slights of this nature. Conversely, the Katothwa Re word for the lowly barnyard fowl was actively changed in or around the 16th century to "Ahnglo" specifically to refer to English. It is unknown what the word was before this, as all known records (what few there may have been) were either destroyed or altered.
The Flag of Wo'n Darshekeen
The flag of Wo'n Darshekeen borrows heavily from the symbolism and theology of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The green KD Shield reminds citizens to "Kahgahrah Dehnfa," or "Choose Righteousness" (in English, the phrase is "Choose the Right"). The sun, moon, and star on the shield (1 Corinthians 15:40-41) refer to the three degrees of glory and are a reminder to strive for the Celestial, or greatest, glory. Three horizontal fields reinforce this symbolism, but are meant also to show the eventual triumph of Good over Evil. The gold border represents a rod of iron spoken of by the Book of Mormon prophet, Nephi, whose father saw the Love of God represented in a dream by a Tree of Life. In this dream, the path to the Tree was obscured by mists of darkness, and only those who held tightly to the iron rod running the length of the pathway to the Tree were successful in reaching their intended destination. In the text, Nephi explains that the Rod, itself, is a representation of the Word of God (Read 1 Nephi 8 and 1 Nephi 11).
The Great Seal of Wo'n Darshekeen
Like the nation's flag, the KD Seal references the importance of one's choices, and the consequences of those choices. At the focus of the shield is the sun, representing the highest Kingdom of Heaven, from which light radiates in all directions. The characters in the sun are K, T, and the Kehzheh. The Kehzheh does not have its own sound, but rather causes the letter preceding it to be voiced (changing the T to a D). As with the flag, the meaning is "Kahgahrah Dehnfa," or "Choose Righteousness." Below and to the right of the sun, the moon represents a lesser glory, and the star represents a glory that is lesser still.
Map of Wo'n Darshekeen
The Power-Seat city for each of the Dezhma-tum, or provinces, is shown in this map. Jeecseek Sushahn (Sushahn Island) falls under the jurisdiction of Jeecseek Shahn, and Jeecseek Tikizahn (Scorpion Island) is subject to Dezhma Wahnahkar. The nation's capitol, the city of Hacs-Tolahkh, is independent of the Dezhma seats and functions as a city-state.
