If you need names for the country, its cities, and locations, try the Conlang Word Generator.
Today, the average crop yield is around 30:1; pre-modern crop yields were closer to 2:1.
The generator calculates based on modern acreage-to-feed rates and adjusts downwards. Tweaking the country's climate will also affect the crop
yield. Unless, of course, merchants/imports provide most or all food, in which case population can be nearly independent of local resources.
This generator only estimates for farming cultures. For nomads, you'll need a lot of land per person. If there's not as much land, what there is
must be resource-rich (eg early Japan). If you want to estimate a nomadic country, try Mongolia. It has a modern density of 5; estimates put its density at .2
in Chinggis Khan's era: that's 1 person for every 5 square miles. Of course, 120K people is still a lot if you can get them all in one place.
