History of Jalanat
The 1500 Filde war was the beginning of the founding of Jalanat. before Jalanat was founded regions were at war with each other. The war started when King Feder from the Aldo region started sending his legions towards the other regions to expand his kingdom. the other regions formed an alliance known as the Isla alliance to fend off the much bigger Aldo region. There were huge naval battles and several battles on land between the Isla alliance soldiers and the Aldo troops that landed on the isles. The biggest part of the war was in the northern Isla du Javanier region, the war was undecided as both sides sustained heavy casualties but eventually the legion of king Feder broke through and got into the capital of Isla du Javanier, Grotto. After the news arrived to the other regions they capitulated and the Treaty of Virus was singed. The Aldo region successfully conquered the other regions and were added to the kingdom of Feder and he declared his new country the Kingdom of Jalanat.

the 1582 Dicolón war was again a war to expand the Jalanese territory, king Dumaiv ordered the Jalanese legion to move further south east and take the land there. the Jalanese legion went in with low morale. It was already a bad start and it wouldn't get anything better as the opposing country, Fyville, was much better armed. the Jalanese legion suffered heavy casualties while Fyville had almost no casualties, the Jalanese advance went extremely slow. It was when the Jalanese were about to retreat that the general of the Jalanese legion, General Fiminsk, ordered a last stand at the Talon mountains. the forces met up and General Fiminsk ordered archer lines to stand on the ridges of the mountains while the ground troops had to take ambush positions, General Fiminsk used Guerrilla tactics to win from the Fyville forces, the battle was won with ony few Jalanese casualties. even though the Jalanese won this battle but were not able to continue further, they stopped after they took a large island south of Fyville which became known as the Nous Province.

in 1921 one of the bloodiest civil wars in history occured in Jalanat, the war was between the communistic states trying to end the monarchy of Jalanat and trying to instate a socialist system (nous region and setu region) and the capitalistic states also trying to end the monarchy of Jalanat and instate a capitalist system (isla du javanier, aldo region and nou region) after king Fesemsu died a power vaccuum was created, both the sides wanted to take the power vaccuum and get rule over the country, this resulted in a bloody war for the throne. one of the most important battles was the battle at Shinsun, Shinsun was an extremely important place for both sides. the capitalists had 7 trenches around the city and several ships patrolled the waters of Shinsun. the communists tried to overwhelm Shinsun by attacking from land and sea. they surrounded the entire city. the communistic infantry took the trenches by storming them with bayonets and using assault troopers to throw grenades in the trenches. When Shinsun was taken the capitalists lost a very important economic center. The victory at Shinsun gave the communists a lot of morale and they managed to push further, sweeping through the lands to meet up with the capitalists on the Asems plain north of Jaliun. the battle was static and both sides took casualties in the trench-to-trench battle. it was untill tanks arrived that the Communists managed to push through, getting to Jaliun. the communists rode with tanks over the city streets and took the capital building. from that day forward the government of Jalanat took a pro-communist stance.

In 1961 Jalanat was running out of space to build on and looked for new lands, they started colonizing new lands. A huge war took place in Nous Sinnoh. Even though the Jalanese forces were victorious they sustained heavy casualties while the Nous Sinnians were poorly equipped and had less experienced soldiers, however Nous Sinnoh managed to put the terrain to optimal use and it became a guerrilla war, something the Jalanese soldiers were not experienced with. The beach landings were already a mess and the Jalanese forces used poor tactics and 1 out of 8 of the invading forces did not make it further than the beach. The rest of the war went extremely slow and Nous Sinnians constantly laid ambushes on convoys and managed to cut supply routes, Finally Jalanat sent in a second force twice the size of the original Invading forces to try and reinforce the soldiers fighting in Nous Sinnoh. But this caused a 2 front war and the 2 forces remained cut off. Finally Jalanat managed to pull off a victory in the Battle of Orange, the 2 fronts attacked Orange at the same time surrounded the city and captured it, after this the war still moved slowly and it eventually turned into Trench Warfare. Jalanat was forced to send in a third force to reinforce the frontline, finally Jalanat was able to push further. The last battle was the Battle of Asyf. The Jalanese forces attacked the capital from the East and from the South, they took heavy casualties in the suburbs but were victorious, in the end the Jalanese Armed Forces took 98,300 casualties (almost half of all invading forces) while the Nous Sinnians took roughly 72,000 casualties. Nous Sinnoh was officially declared a colony of Jalanat after the treaty of Orange was signed in 1963 in the city of Orange. The capital of Nous Sinnoh was renamed Asyf-Jaliun and in 1977 Novograd was founded, in 1984 Nous Talosin was founded and in early 2005 the city of Nous Asuko was founded.

The years 2008 and 2009 are known as the most chaotic years in the history of Jalanat with both unrest going on in Jalanat itself as in the Colony of Nous Sinnoh. On March 2008 a group of capitalists led by Li Ko Hong managed to storm the government building which was at that time not properly secured. The capitalists managed to shoot President Jala Soma who heard the capitalists were coming and hid in a kitchen cupboard. The capitalists won very quickly due to the lack of security, this gave them the opportunity to take over control without having a huge military conflict. Li Ko Hong, the leader of the coup was declared president of Jalanat, later on he appointed Asuko Lucario as his right hand. Just a year after being declared president Li Ko Hong had a heart attack while in office and died on the way to the hospital. Asuko Lucario became the new president and declared Jalanat a communist state again. The capitalists who attempted the coup were tracked down and imprisoned. The unrest in Jalanat would continue as an armed conflict started in the Nous Province, the Nous Jaliun Independece Force, a rebellious group fighting for the independence of the Nous Province blew up a car bomb in the middle of Nous Jaliun's most visited plaza killing dozens of civilians. Just moments after this news crews came to the plaza and recorded the aftermath of the car bomb. However the Nous Jaliun Independece Force then stormed the plaza with assault rifles, taking the lives of 29 more civilians and 7 police officers. As an immediate response the Jalanese Army was sent to war against the terrorists that threatened Jalanat. In the Jalanese Colony unrest started soon after, a resistance was formed named the NSSA (Nous Sinnoh Seperatists Alliance). The resistance is made up of small tiny resistance forces operating in Nous Sinnoh working together in the same alliance, it is notable however that there were 2 resistance forces not in this Alliance, the Novograd Fascist Fighters (NFF) and the Armed Islami Resistance (AIR). The NSSA's first action was an attempt to blow up the Jalanese Colonial Affairs Building. They sent a warning message to Jalanat that if they would not receive independence they would blow up the building which could cost the lives of thousands. Jalanat's government however responded to this threat with military actions. A small platoon was first sent to the Building to try and secure it, they were spotted by NSSA forces however and a firefight started. The leader of the resistance was contacted about the platoon trying to secure the building and immediately responded by ordering the bombs to be triggered. The building collapsed and 124 people found their death, the building was not completely occupied during the night and the amount of casualties would have been almost twice as high would the bombs have been detonated during the day. Jalanat immediately sent in even more troops to try and shut down the Resistance forces. The NSSA was not making a lot of progress in the resistance war and neither were the seperatists in Nous Jaliun, desperately the two joined forces to fight the much stronger Jalanat. After this happened the seperatists were finally making progress and on August 21st the North-West of Nous Sinnoh was liberated by the resistance forces. The Jalanese military showed signs of retreating but they tried to hold ground in the south of Nous Sinnoh but retreated from Nous Sinnoh entirely on september 9th. Nous Sinnoh was declared independent and immediately started sending troops to Nous Jaliun, they were attacked by the Jalanese navy as they tried to move troops to Nous Jaliun, about 10% of the troops did not make it to the shores of Nous Jaliun. The seperatists gained the upper hand after the reinforcements arrived and pushed the Jalanese soldiers back in the Nous Province. The advance stopped as the seperatists were not able to push further. the front was completely stopped and the soldiers from both sides dug into trenches but both sides could not push any further. Jalanat finally decided to surrender the land they lost to the seperatists and a peace treaty was signed, Nous Jaliun was declared as an independent state.

In Early 2010 during a speech by President Asuko Lucario he stated that the government of Jalanat would be working towards the final stage of communism and end the dictatorship of the proletariat and elections would be held again for the first time since 1992. Anti-Revisionist groups, already fearing that this would happen had made plans to stage a coup d'etat shortly after the speech by President Asuko Lucario. 2 days after the speech the presidential residence was closed down after an anti-revisionist group threatened to detonate a bomb hidden inside the presidential residence, bomb squads arrived at the scene immediately to find the bomb and defuse it. After searching for hours they found nothing. Following the bomb threats a public poll indicated that only 37% of the population were in favor of stateless communism, however, 89% were in favor of elections. Just a week after the last speech the president gave, he withdrew his statement that the government would work towards the final stage of communism but that the elections would still continue.
The elections began on April 14th, exactly 18 years after the last recorded election in Jalanat. The results were in favor of Asuko Lucario with 71% of the voters voting for him, the only other candidate was Ichirou Kougen from the New Road Party.

Jalanat became a member of the International Pact For the Proper and Ethical Treatment of All Sentient Persons (IPPETASP) on May the 6th. This led to a few relatively harmless protests by conservative groups in Jalanat, they complained that the people from Jalanat had little to say about the entering of this pact. The cabinet considered a political reform of Jalanat's government after they received the complaint. The debate happened inside the presidential residence away from civilians and news cameras. Eventually during a speech President Asuko Lucario stated that after a long debate the cabinet finally decided to hold a referendum for the addition of a parliament to the Jalanese government, it was held on May the 9th. The majority, about 86% of the population voted for a parliament and so the referendum passed. Another referendum about continuation of Jalanat's membership of the IPPETASP was also held 3 days after that and passed with 81% of the population voting for.

The first parliamentary elections in the history of Jalanat were held successfully on May the 15th, voting booths were placed at numerous school buildings. The voting system that was used for the parliamentary elections was a Party-List Proportional Representation. The elections marked the beginning of what is seen by many as the new age of Democracy in Jalanat and the end of 2 long years of political instability in the nation.

On August the 1st, the first right-wing party in Jalanat was founded, the Freedom party, a libertarian, right-wing party. Many leftists protested against this, however, some libertarian-leaning, right-leaning and even a few left-leaning politicians thought of the creation of this right-wing party as another victory for democracy.

After much debate in the parliament of Jalanat, Jalanat left the IPPETASP in September after noting the lack of professionalism within the alliance and chose to use their own standards for ethical treatment of sapient species and their own guidelines to define sapient species. This decision sparked some controversy as many people thought that some citizens who were defined as sapient before Jalanat left the IPPETASP would not be considered sapient under the new guidelines, however, there were no such cases.

On October, the parliament succesfully voted to change the national animal of Jalanat, the parliament was afraid that having a species that has largely become sapient as a national animal would cause some people to be offended. The Red Party opposed this idea fiercely, they knew that the Lucario has been important in Jalanese culture for more than 300 years. The cabinet of Jalanat fell as all Red Party cabinet and parliament members resigned out of protest. After this, re-elections for the parliament started. Due to their actions and the creation of 2 new political parties since the last parliamentary elections the red party had a steep drop in their popularity, the results of the re-election of the parliament showed that most people voted for the Social Liberalism Party and General Left. The popularity of authoritarian-left parties declined steadily and a merge of The New Road Party with the Socialist Front was considered but these plans did not go through due to disagreements between the 2 parties.

The Social Liberal party managed to create numerous changes in Jalanat since it had gotten a majority of seats in the parliament, private businesses were once again made legal after years of a state-run economy. They had also passed a legislation which made vegetarianism compulsory in Jalanat, the latter stirred up minor protest amongst people but the majority of the largely environmentalistic population showed support towards this motion. Illegal hunting is however a concern and law enforcement struggle to control it. The motives behind the legislation for compulsory vegetarianism to pass was the constant fear of the government that a non-human sapient species would be mistaken for a wild animal and shot sooner or later. Animal rights most definitely played a major role as well as meat eating became more and more controversial in Jalanat.

My nation is not like my nation page at all, it contradicts itself, we don't EVER eat kangaroos, that's just very sad. Also vegetarianism is compulsory yet it still says it's the nation's favourite main course and all and stuff.

In question form: kyūsē tsū anō kanēdīate?
2. With the use of interrogatives words such as what, when, where (fobo, fobi, fonku in Jalanese respectively)
3. Used in formal speech, adding the word foyano to the beginning of the sentence to indicate a question which is then linked to the next word with a dash if written, in speech there is an absence of a break between the question indicator and the next word if that word starts with a consonant, if the next word starts with a vowel a glottal stop is used. this form can not be used in combination with other ways of question-representation.
Example: Tsū kyūsē anō kanēdīate
Phrase: Foyano-tsū kyūsē anō kanēdīate

13) Passive Phrases
* Passive phrases are constructed with a special pronoun, Nubato. Other than this, sentences should be constructed like one would normally do.

14) Participles
* In Jalanese there are 2 types of participles known as continuous participles and past participles.
*Continuous participles are made by conjugating upi- or upin- to the verb
*Past participles are made by conjugating opi- or opin- to the verb

15) Other Morphemes
Adjective to Noun: conjugate za- or zan- to the adjective.
Adjective to Verb: conjugate -tsā to the adjective.
Noun to Adjective: conjugate -te to the adjective.
Noun to Verb: conjugate se- or sen- to the noun.
Verb to Adjective: conjugate -asu or -su to the verb.

Alphabet and Writing System

Image
Jalanese text must be read from top to bottom. What makes the writing system unique is that every line of text is seperated into 2 rows. The first row is where the regular characters are placed. The second row, referred to in Jalanat as the "punctuation row" holds the accented vowel indicators and any punctuation marks that are used in a text. The punctuation marks are very similar to those used in the latin alphabet, however, dashes have been replaced with underscores to avoid confusion between dashes and accented vowel indicators. Also, the placement of opening and closing punctuation marks are usually different, opening quotation marks are placed on the left side of the punctuation row while closing quotation marks are placed on the right side. This allows the use of quotation marks within a message surrounded by quotation marks without causing confusion to the reader. This is not universally used and solely depends on whether the writer thinks it is absolutely necessary.


Jalanese English Dialect
The Jalanese English Dialect is a rare dialect spoken in Jalanat, even in Jalanat this dialect isn't very common as most Jalanese speak with a Canadian English Dialect rather than a Jalanese English Dialect, Jalanese English is heavily influenced by Canadian English.

**: Only used before an f or v
***: It not uncommon for alveolar consonants to become interdentalized in Jalanese (except for the s and z), this phenomenon known as tongue thrust occurs in Jalanese English when two alveolar consonants (except s's or z's) follow each other, both consonants will then be interdentalized. It occurs when the following vowel sound is either [ɪ], [i], [e], [ɛ] or [æ].
****: Both ways are correct in any case whatsoever.

My nation is not like my nation page at all, it contradicts itself, we don't EVER eat kangaroos, that's just very sad. Also vegetarianism is compulsory yet it still says it's the nation's favourite main course and all and stuff.
