Claim Classification (Main Nation or NPC): Main Nation

Shortform name: Ichoria

Indigenous shortform: Ikória

Longform name: Ichorian Republic

Indigenous longform: Ikore Valadras

Link (unformatted, imgur): https://i.imgur.com/8q0hZPH.png

Population estimate: 72,400,000

National Overview: Nation in Western Aurora consisting of two separate territories, Continental Ichoria, divided into nine Regions and the Azhara Capital District, and Insular Ichoria, composed of the nation's tenth region, the Helurian Islands, in the Elyrian sea.

Unified in the Late Middle Ages by the house of Alar, dukes of Azhara, the nation became one of the first to take part in transcontinental colonization and trade, establishing factories in the Diharan shore and being the first Auroran nation to directly trade with the orient. This was also a golden age for Ichorian culture, with Ichorian gaining status across Aurora as a scholarly language.

A personal union with the Thracian Empire starting in the late 16th century, known as the Elyrian Monarchy and lasting for 60-70 years, would bring Ichoria firmly into Auroran affairs. Following the death of king-turned-emperor Daeron I, the Ichorian nobility, feeling increasingly sidelined by the autocratic rule of the monarch, rebelled against his son in the Restoration of Independence, placing on the throne the descendants of one of the first monarch's bastard children.

The following 250 years were defined by the increasing stagnation of the kingdom's politics, with an entrenched nobility and measures taken to prevent social mobility in the face of a growing class of rich commoners, burghers and traders, who aspired to noble status. Their taxation came to represent much of the Ichorian state's income, with the vast estates of the nobles evading any taxation. This would change with the republican revolution in neighboring Kathia in the late 1700's and the succeeding invasion of Ichoria by the legions of Hatheron, first Consul and later Emperor of the Kathics. The royal family, as well as much of the nobility, would take refuge in the Ichorian colonies, leaving none but the rich commoner classes to organize an effective resistance. Following the defeat of Hatheron and the return of a monarchy to Kathia, it would be Ichoria who would declare a republic in its turn, with the remnants of the nobility, settled in the colonies, continuing to stand by their legitimate Kingdom-in-Exile.

The 1840's would feature the invasion of Ichoria by a coalition of neighboring Auroran nations, allied to the Kingdom-in-Exile, in an attempt to eliminate the republic and return the nation to monarchic rule. The Republican Wars would last for two decades and end in a decisive republican victory in the late 1860's, but at the cost of destabilizing the nation's hold on remaining colonies. Ichoria would lose all colonial presence in the New World and Orient, keeping only a minor Diharan presence, primarily coastal, that it would seek to transform into more extensive territorial claims over the following decades.

The 1920's and 30's would feature the rise of Autocratist as a philosophy, culminating in the takeover of power by the National Union, an Autocratist party, in the early 1930s. This event and the following suppression of all other political parties would lead to the exile of many former politicians and party members, who would coalesce into a unified and unrecognized government in exile. The Second World War would see Ichoria seek to expand its territorial claims in Dihara and to conquer the rest of the peninsula south of it, in an attempt to establish an hegemony over the dark continent. By the end of the war, the formerly exiled faction would come to join mainland resistance fighters and establish a successor government, democratic and under Allied supervision.

When the defeat of the Autocrats became unavoidable, High Command would enact the greatest war crime in world history: Twilight Protocol, an organized operation focused on razing infrastructure and killing civilians undertaken in the final days of the Ichorian Civil War. The most infamous act undertaken under the Protocol are the infamous Rains of Death, a coordinated chemical strike on 6 civilian centers that resulted in combined casualties numbering approximately one million deaths.

The next 70 years would see Ichoria become a modern western republic, with an emphasis on democracy in the face of the sins of its past. Some of the primary modern-day pillars of the Ichorian state include secularism, political pluralism, and an explicit refusal of party discipline in most areas. Independent candidates for all political bodies constitute a large portion of members of the apparatus of state, and the country has some of the most progressive civil rights in the world.

Government Type: Federal semi-presidential republic

Claim Classification (Main Nation or NPC): Main Nation

Shortform name: Kathia

Indigenous shortform: Kāthia

Longform name: Kingdom of Kathia

Indigenous longform: Daregon ka Kāthia

Link (unformatted, imgur): https://imgur.com/a/YQCf7B1

Population estimate: 92,490,762

National Overview: Kathia is a nation in western Aurora, divided into 21 Provinces, 2 of which (Laszia and West Valentia) have considerable autonomy. Provinces are subdivided into Departments, of which there are over 100.
Germanic people inhabited much of Kathia until the Elyrians took over southern Kathia to expand into modern Ichoria. Eventually almost all of Kathia was conquered by the Elyrian Empire. After several centuries of Elyrian rule, various Kathic states would suddenly break away from Elyria following the Calamity. It wouldn't be until the early Middle Ages when the small Kingdom of Ravonne would unify the much of Modern Kathia.

With it's newfound unity, Kathia would go on to be a major player in Auroran affairs. Kathia would often lead what is known as the Confederacy, a union of Kathia and Grothic states to the north. The Confederacy would effectively end when Kathia is conquered by Daeron and the Elyrian Empire. King Louin XI would seek refuge in southern Grothbord, leading various guerilla style incursions in the northern part of the Elyrian Empire. Upon the death of Daeron and the Ichori Rebellion, he would lead his armies and those of Grothic states against Daeron's son, and was eventually victorious. However, the Grothic states for a long time held discontent with continual Kathic rule of the Empire, as such Kathia was forced to leave the Confederacy shortly after.

Following the death of Louin XI in 1704, Kathia would see a decline. The decline was mostly economic, plagued by longstanding problems in the tax code. This would culminate in the Kathic Revolution in the late 1700s. Most members of the House of Inothe were executed, however the Kings Cousin, Vaszare, would escape to Thrace. Hatheron Kalakaris would eventually take control of the Kathic Republic, and in 1798 would crown himself Emperor of the Kathics. The Kathic Empire would come to an end when Hatheron was forced to surrender when Allied troops were preparing to march on Ravonne.

With much of the original house of Inothe dead, Vaszare was elected King, changing the royal house to the House of Kathia and his title from King of Kathia to King of the Kathics to better show that he was a King for the people unlike his predecessors. The Second Kingdom as it is now known, would last from 1815 until the fall of Kathia in 1940. The Second Kingdom would colonize a large portion of Dihara, most notably Zimbaya, which from 1877 to 1967 would be considered part of Metropolitan Kathia with two provinces and 7 departments.

Kathia remained a stable democracy until it was swiftly taken over by the Autocratic Thracians in 1940, and much of the government and military fled to Zimbaya until 1943. The Provisional Government of the Kathic Kingdom was set up in 1940 and ended in 1948 when the Third Kingdom was established. However the system set up in 1948 was unstable, and 20 cabinets and governments were formed between 1948 and 1958. That combined with general strikes supported by the Communists, led to the Coup of 1958 which put Acathe ce Vera back in charge of Kathia. This also started the Zimbaya War, which lasted until 1967. Elections were held again in 1962.

Since 1958, Kathia has been a stable and strong democracy with a strong emphasis on democracy and secularism. While Kathia is recognized for it's progressive policies, it is also known for sometimes swaing between the Social Democratic Party, the conservative National People's Party, and currently the centrist big-tent New Democratic Front, and some claim the state manipulates local elections in Laszia and West Valentia in favor of unionist parties.

Longform name: [EX: Greater Eastern Union of Zhenia

Indigenous longform: [EX: 대동진국연방/大東陳國聯邦

Link (unformatted, imgur): https://imgur.com/a/A11J2cM

Population estimate: 367,831,971(give or take 50,000 c. 2018)

National Overview: Zhenia is a nation located in Eastern Taizi (Asia), A federal republic of 28 provinces and 5 metropolitan municipalities, it is the second-most populous nation in Taizi, with its population relatively concentrated on the eastern and southern coastal regions and the central plains. Zhenia is a generally continental nation, extending from the Han He River near its border with Daihan to the northeastern edges of the Indian Ocean and the Haidong Islands in the West Pacific. It is bordered by Daihan to its east, Nashkhavia to its north, Gatistan and Qdaiadin to its northwest, Penania to its south and Anping to its west. The nation's diverse climate, geography and wildlife classifies it as a megadiverse country.

Zhenia emerged as one of the cradles of civilization around 3500 BCE in the Taimir Basin, as the first settlements and nations came to existence along the Taimir River. The primordial Ming Dynasty came to span much of what is now central Zhenia around the period, until being divided into numerous successor kingdoms. While much of Zhenia followed a historical line of division and unification by dynasties of the era, city-states and smaller dynasties came to control parts of eastern and southern Zhenia. In the 18th century, federalism, along with the Three Principles of the People proposed by Carl Han, gained support among thinkers and politicians in southern Zhenia, amid political instability. Such ideological shifts resulted in the unification of southern Zhenia under the Federation of South Zhenia in 1770, while the ideology spread north to the Jin as well. As the Jin collapsed in 1852, the Zhenian Civil War ensued, ending with the Greater Eastern Union's establishment on June 4, 1868.

Shortly after its establishment, Zhenia initiated Shinzhen Movement, calling for both industrialization and a generally offensive approach and eventual elimination of the presence of Auroran colonial empiresin the vicinity of Zhenia. It eventually expanded into a manifest destiny of Zhenians a new trans-national entity spanning the Genarma Ocean and Taizi. Following this trend, Such expansions resulted in numerous military conflicts against existing Auroran powers. During the First Great War, Zhenia launched a series of major offensives against Auroran powers and their colonies in both oceans and the continent from 1916 to 1919, eventually being accepted as the de facto victor of the war, securing much of Taizi and the two oceans under its influence. In the 1930s, Zhenia launched further offensives into remaining Auroran colonies and Oceania, although its defeat in Second Great Warresulted in the loss of all of its colonial gains by 1949. The Coup of 1953 brought about a military regime led by World War 2 commander Vladimir Akulov seizing power and hence commencing the Third Republic, which remained for 23 years until the November Revolution in 1976. Since the Third Republic and due to the Taizi Restoration Act from Hijjma, Zhenia saw an era of economic progress, its nominal GDP surpassing that of Hijjma in 1982. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, it has seen an era of continued and unchallenged prosperity as Taizi's sole great power.

A developed country, Zhenia is home to one of the largest economies of the world, ranking very high in personal productivity, ease of doing business, educational level, healthcare and personal safety. It also exerts unprecedented political influence in the Taizi-Genarmic region as the region's sole great power and founding member of the Pan-Genarma Coalition. (yes, from IIWiki)

INWU | Official Map Claim

Claim Classification: Main Nation

Shortform name: Thrace

Indigenous shortform: Thrākia

Longform name: Empire of Thrace

Indigenous longform: Ghioragon ka Thrākia

Link: https://imgur.com/vHAYD69 - the Empire of Thrace also claims de jure control over the Thracian Democratic Republic/Thynia, and refuses to recognize the Thynian/Thracian Democratic government diplomatically.

Population estimate: Around 82,000,000

National Overview:
Thrace is a a nation in Western/Central Aurora, consisting of mainland Thrace, and its various island territories. From an administrative point of view, Thrace is divided into 16 provinces, including the three disputed provinces controlled by Thynia, the autonomous province of Eastern Valentia, and the imperial capital of Veranium, with a special status. Thrace also has a special relationship with the Elyrian Ecclesiarchy, marked by a series of bilateral historical treaties which have resulted in open borders between the two nations and a firm pledge by the Thracian state to protect the Ecclesiarchy's borders and soveregnity. The Empire of Thrace is also a founding member of the Auroran Community, a political and economical union and a military alliance of various Auroran states.

The history of Thrace starts with the various ancient peoples that inhabited its present day territory, the so called Ancient Thracians. Various kingdoms and city-states were formed on its lands for centuries, and these states were influenced by and influenced the other ancient civilizations around the Elyrian Sea too. Eventually, the virulent expansionism of the Elyrians forced the ancient Thracians to come together in the Odrysian League, an alliance and later a nation that fought multiple wars against the Elyrians until it was eventually annexed - one of the first territories to fall under the Old Elyria's rule. From that point onward, Thrace became one of most important territories of the Elyrian Empire, eventually being reorganized into the Hegemony of Thrace, a military and civilian province of the Elyrian Empire.

The Calamity that led to the destruction of the Old Elyria also led to the destruction of many coastal areas in Thrace, but the inland territories managed to survive relatively unscathed, allowing the provincial government to survive. The Hegemon of Thrace claimed the imperial title and formed an informal alliance with the early Vayonist Faith which had its center in a former territory of the Hegemony. While this new state continued to consider itself to be the same Elyrian Empire, historians normally call it "the Veranian Empire", in relation to the city of Veranium. Despite being on the coast, it managed to survive the Calamity without major damage, and the Faith interpreted is as a divine sign, leading to it being rebuilt as the New Elyria, a title that it would continue to hold for a long time.

The Veranian Empire lasted for around 1000 years, experiencing periods of glory, of decay, and of recovery. Eventually, it morphed into its own distinct civilization, preparing the stage for the eventual Thracian identity. Various defeats against its neighbors, periods of anarchy, and succession issues eventually led to the conquest and sacking of Veranium by the Ardamist Caliphate, which could have well enough been the end of the Thracian state, but in the region of Thynia, a provincial governor related to the imperial family reorganized the empire's remains to continue fighting. Ardamist attempts to conquer the Holy Elyria and the Ecclesiarchy led to the creation of various alliances against them, and during the Siege of the Holy Elyria, the invading armies were destroyed. Over the next century, the Veranian state reconquered most of its territories and even started to conquer lands in Dihara, but an important event happened after the reconquest of Veranium - its monarch was crowned as Emperor of the Thracians before the older title of Emperor of the Elyrians, marking the moment that most historians consider to be the creation of the first modern Thracian state.

The reborn Thracian Monarchy continued to expand, in an expansion and militarism fueled by a religious fervor. The new nation took part in the Auroran colonization of other continents, quickly creating a rich and large colonial empire for itself, becoming one of the great powers of that era. With the riches of its colonies, the Thracian Empire quickly became involved in Auroran affairs, developing a fierce rivalry with the nation of Kathia but a strong alliance with Ichoria. The inheritance of territories in Western Aurora by the Thracian monarchs and their attempts to expand against the Kathic and Grothbordian Confederacy led to short wars, that erupted into a century of continental warfare once Kathia and Thrace became the supporters of different positions in a major religious issue, beginning the Wars of the Faith. Throughout these 100 years of warfare, there were periods of glorious victories and bitter defeats, but one of the defining events of this war was the Conquest of the East, a Thracian expedition into Eastern Aurora that ended with the death of the Thracian Emperor and of much of the Thracian imperial family, but also of the successors to the Ichori throne. The Emperor's wife, an Ichori princess, was named as Empress-Regent over a personal union of Thrace and Ichoria, which would become a reality with the double coronation of Daeron, her second born son, as Emperor of the Thracians and King of the Ichorians. In the Holy Elyria, Daeron was also crowned as Emperor of the Elyrians, creating the Elyrian Monarchy, a short lived attempt to revive the Elyrian Empire of old.

During his reign, Daeron led to the League of the Holy Sun to major victories against its enemies, conquering the entire coast of the Western Elyrian Sea, including much of Kathia. Daeron the Great and the Holy died of old age after creating a glorious empire, but his death created cracks in the bedrock that supported this new nation. His extensive campaigns weakened Thrace economically, blowing into a full economic crisis after his demise. His son tried to keep the empire together, but after a major naval defeat, his autocratic rule led to a rebellion by the Ichori nobles. His attempts to fight back against the Kathic and the Grothic armies ended in defeat after a failed siege of Ravonne and a land defeat against a combined Ichori-Kathic-Grothic force that was a huge blow against the Thracian military supremacy. In a skirmish during his retreat towards Thrace, Daeron's son was killed by a bullet - with historians having no idea if it was a stray bullet fired by his enemies, or a bullet fired by one of his guards. His death however ended the war and the Elyrian Monarchy. Ichoria and Kathia became fully independent, a religious compromise was reached, ending a war that lasted a century and that killed millions of people.

Thrace's autocratic rule eventually placed it as the greatest enemy of the new Kathic regime during the revolutionary wars, and the Thracian Monarchy ended after a series of defeats, the death of most of its imperial family and the conquest of Veranium by the Kathics. Prince Eugene, a bastard son of the last Emperor led a Supreme Regency Council which led a huge guerrilla campaign against the Kathic forces, while the nation's first princess managed to escape into exile where she gave birth to two successors - twins. The Thracian forces led by Eugene eventually took part in the conquest of Kathia which ended this period of history, but Eugene was assassinated by a faction of nobles while returning to Thrace. Eventually the two twin princes returned to Thrace, both claiming the throne, with Prince Velisarion eventually defeating his brother in front of Veranium, crushing the faction of the nobility, and recreating the Thracian Empire as a constitutional monarchy.

The nation was reformed, and in order to avoid such a tragedy from ever happening again, all emperors from Velisarion onward would focus on the military and on diplomatically isolating Thrace's enemies - while also starting to improve Thrace's diplomatic relations with Ichoria, relations that had been really bad after the perceived Ichori betrayal during the Wars of the Faith. Thrace took control of its colonies again after the interregnum, and also expanded its colonial empire, but its militarism and aggressiveness were one of the factors that led to many regional wars throughout the world, and to the eventual beginning of the world wars.

The First World War quickly degenerated into brutal trench warfare on the Thracian-Kathic front, and ended in a stalemate, despite various offensives on both side. This, combined with naval defeats and with the diplomatic armistice that ended the war gave birth to a knife in the back myth among Thracian nationalists. The rise of Autocratism as a political ideology was the downfall of the troubled Thracian democracy. Combined with an economic crisis, a feeling of revanchism, and the support accorded to this new ideology by the new Emperor, Thrace became an absolute monarchy, and one-party state in the interwar period. The Autocratic government led Thrace right into a Second World War, which was even more bloody than the first one. Despite naval defeats and the loss of many colonial conflicts, Thrace managed to defeat Kathia and to occupy its mainland territories, while also invading various other countries. The tide of the war slowly turned against the Thracians, but the Allied liberation of Europe was slowed down, but before the war could end in a stalemate like the first, various revolts started in Thrace proper.

The Autocrats had slowly lost the trust of the people and the loyalty of the military throughout the war, and the return from exile of Prince Michael gave the Thracian resistance movement a new leader. A military coup and revolts in most cities ended the period of Autocratic rule, with the leaders of the movement, including the Emperor, being killed, while various other Autocrats were summarily executed. Before their defeat however, the Autocratic Knights of the Eternal Serpent that guarded the headquarters of the Heaven's Fall Project Division managed to drop a nuclear bomb on one of Thrace's city in a final, hateful retaliation.

The Thracian Transitional Council and later Government was forced to sign an armistice with the Allies in the face of further aggression from the East. Various Auroran powers, including Kathia and Ichoria came together in the military alliance that would serve as the basis of the future Auroran Community, fighting in Eastern and Central Aurora and in !Asia until the eventual end of the war. Thrace however proved unable to maintain control over the provinces of Thynia that were taken over by a rebel movement with foreign support, creating the Thracian Democratic Republic, or Thynia, which Thrace continues to refuse to recognize to this day, claiming de jure control over it and leading a foreign policy of diplomatic retaliation against the nations who would recognize the Thynian government.

Democratization, deautocratization and reconciliation marked the first decades of Thrace's history after the war. A short lived attempt at a republic proved that the Thracian politics were extremely unstable, and with the already popular hero Michael representing it, a return to the constitutional monarchy was voted by a majority of the Thracian people in 1955. The newly formed Empire of Thrace developed into a modern and democratic constitutional monarchy, becoming well known for its political stability caused by its largest two parties, the center-right conservative National Monarchist Front and the center-left, social liberal and progressive Constitutional Democratic Union. Unlike in Kathia and Ichoria, the Faith still plays a huge role in the nation, even if Thrace is formally secular, perhaps also because of the close relationship of the state with the Ecclesiarchy. A certain conflict continues to exist between the older, more conservative part of the population and the more progressive and liberal youth. Thrace is also known for its vibrant culture and rich history, and for the way in which it combines its traditions from the past with elements of the present and the future.

Thrace became a founding member of the Auroran Community and continues to be regarded as a great power and as one of the Community's most important pillars, even if its presence on the international stage has been limited by the cautious pragmatism that has been trying to avoid the mistakes of the past.

Population estimate: 14,477,000

National Overview:
Progylstan:
Progylstan has been inhabited since antiquity by the Busti People, who speak the Busti Language. Around 1100, the Progyl Turks migrated from the area of the modern day River Gatito. The earliest attested regnant of the Progyl Turks is Kefi Igdaleb, who reigned from about 980 BC to 940 BC. During his reign, the first method of writing used by Northern Turkic Tribes was adopted, Progyz Glyphs. Kefi Igdaleb was succeeded by Mansur I Igdaleb, who fostered an early alliance with the then prosperous Dreussian Kingdom. Mansur himself was literate in both Progyz Glyphic and the Drevolic Script, although he never succeeded in introducing the script to the masses, which wouldn't become widespread until 400 BC. Mansur was succeeded by his nephew, Mansur II Igdaleb, who succeeded in inheriting the throne of Dreussia, creating the Hadesh Khaganate, which lasted until 670 AD, reaching its height under Khagan Joh in 567 AD. Following the Rise of Ardamism, Progylstan became home to a rapidly intensifying Ardamist movement, being delegated as one of the 12 Imamates responsible for electing the Caliph. During the Shayabid Caliphate, land in Progylstan was lost to native rebellions, and a Khanate on the border of the Progyl Imamate was established, called the Mush Khanate. The Mush Khanate would last until 1347, when it was conquered by the powerful Zawarid Caliphate and subsequently incorporated into the restored Progyl Imamate. Following the fall of the Zawarids during the Vayonist Crusades, the area would fall under control of the Bust Khanate. The Bust Khanate would flourish for about 50 years, before being annexed by the upstart Puldanian Empire, led by the young William van Burbek. Progylstan would remain part of the Puldanian Empire until 1987, when the Second Puldanian Revolution resulted in an anarchist state being created, resulting in the independence of Mushyzstan, Slaost, Sarkostan, and Progylstan. Progylstan, Sarkostan, and Mushyztan would form a union under Progylstan, forming modern day Progylstan.

Modern Progylstan
Modern Progylstan is a prosperous stable democracy, having prided itself on maintaining a stable democracy since independence. Despite this, income inequality continues to be a major problem in Progylstan today, with energy profits being concentrated in the wealthiest 10%. In addition, Progylstan has led efforts within the CEC to transition from fossil fuels to green energy, with CEC President Mustafa Abdul's Dream Green Energy Initiative earning him a nobel peace prize for his efforts in conservation.


Geography
Progylstan is dominated by a mountainous steppe landscape. The climate of Progylstan is arid, with there being very few forests or large brushlands, with the exception of northern areas such as Kalirev. The Blugel River and its tributaries run through the middle of Progylstan, ending at the source of Lake Kirimuz.

National Overview: Puldania is represented diplomatically by the Grand Envoy, a position usually held by a member of the Royal Family of Augsen. The current Grand Envoy is Iohanz vana Augsen. Puldania is a member of the Central Eastern Commonwealth and Ardamic Council. Puldania is home to two major spoken languages: Pulzdeky and Slaotvoli. Both languages are part of the Germano-Turkic Branch of the Turkic Language Family. Puldania has a rich cultural history, having been home to many notable composers, most notably Aram Khatchaturian, Gustav Holst, and Franz Lizst. Puldania is also acknowledged as the birthplace of the modern Ballet, as well as the birthplace of the Western Notation System.

The earliest record of Puldania appears in a monument located in Ablad'hum Ibm Qiyirt, where the founding of the nation is attributed to Puildan the Bruchian. Puldania is the birthplace of all three of the major prophets of Ardamism.

Puldania is a developed country with a diverse economy, with a thriving industrial sector and large service sector. Puldania's main exports are Salt, Arms and Military Equipment, Grapes, and Electronics Processors, as well as maintaining vibrant a tourism industry, and agriculture industries. Industries such as agriculture, wineries, and salt mining are generally located in the northern regions such as Gravopol, Braggs, Zta, and Lazsimov Estrutka. tourism and manufacturing can be found throughout the coastal and central areas.
uldania has been inhabited since antiquity. The origins of modern day Puldania are attributed to the Treussians, a tribe of germanic people who settled in Nicobul near 1000 BC. Puildan the German is the first leader attested in writing, and is credited with having led the tribe to modern day Puldania. Puildan's successor, Bolturk I, created the first writing system used to write the early Treussian language, which remains in use by the Rzani people. During this time, the previously incorporated Saoxi people and the german Bruchians diffused to create a new ethnic group, which would become the Puldanian culture. Bolturk's successor, Rzan of Treussia, would abandon his role as king to lead a group of Treussians south to settle in modern day Ruzincan, where they would establish the Rzani culture. Rzan was succeeded by Bolturk II, who began the enduring maritime legacy of Puldania by sending out merchant ships to far away lands, with Puldanian Glasswork being found in such far away places as Zhenia and Estradia. Historical sources after Bolturk II's reign begin to muddy, as a wave of obscurity passes over the area, after being conquered by the Paladine and later Elyrian Empires. Puldania would remain under foreign control until the 16th century, when a young knight named William van Burbek carved out a duchy in central Nicobul. He would later conquer the entirety of the peninsula and proclaim the Puldanian Empire, which gained lands as far as Baccania. This empire would continue to prosper until the 20th century, when it was ultimately defeated in the World Wars.

Modern Puldania
Modern Puldania is a wealthy, prosperous nation with many large cities, including Albruck, which is home to many prestigious musical academies. Puldania maintains an anarchic currency-less state, facilitated by a social culture revolving around communalism and mutualism. Since the abolishment of the state in 1987, several prominent figures in Puldanian development such Karls Tjödra, Abram Mustavsön, and Förtejém Örs have spearheaded a massive nationwide industrialization, sparking the automation of a wide range of products. These projects have transformed Puldania into a major exporter of manufactured economy-class goods. Despite not utilizing a domestic currency, Puldanian businesses maintain reserves of foreign currency for use in foreign transactions, such as resource imports.

Puldania itself is technically governmentless, however, local communities maintain order through both mutualistic social contracts, as well as heavy social stigma on "selfish" activities.

The Puldanian anarchy has, despite general success, resulted in and continues to exacerbate the Slaotvoli Authority crisis. Slaost, in northeastern Puldania, has been in a state of degenerative anarchy since 1988, after the historic Red Palace was attacked by Slaotvoli Terrorists. Since then, Slapstick has become ridden with local criminal warlords. Both local Puldanian militias and CEC military forces have been unable to deal with the crisis, leading to lasting questions over the stability of the Puldanian anarchy.

National Overview: The most southwestern Auroran nation, Educandi is an archipelagic nation comprised of 7 islands in the Educan chain. The nation is comprised mostly of farming and fishing towns, with a few cities and larger trade centers on the islands. Known for it's sandy shores of rolling dunes and sea-grass, as well as interior farming towns and quaint villages.

Educandi was united following the death of the Thracian tyrant Daeron I, Educandi focused on trade and as a port of rest for many of the colonial ships going to and from the Auroran nations and their colonies in the new world. The Educan military focused on their navy, building many faster, smaller ships and defensive forts along the coast.

By the early 1800's, the kingdom had modernized and become closer with Aurora, adopting Aurouran fashions and architecture. Following a war with Grothbord, there were worker rebellions and general strikes by dockworkers, the King abolished voting fees, opening enfranchisement to all Educan citizens.

The Industrial Revolution saw good times for Educandi, developing it's coal mines and later oil refineries. Educandi industrialized, building the first steam-powered ships, and then building a railway for each island, connecting the various ports, as well as further connecting the islands.

Some fuckery happened in the first and second world wars.

Shortform name: Kasharvan

Longform name: Imperial State of Kasharvan

Indigenous longform: ایالت امپریال کسهران

Link (unformatted, imgur): https://imgur.com/a/k58t1JH (in dark turquoise, east of Ardam)

Population estimate: 79,889,232 (c. 2017, give or take 50,000)

National Overview: Kasharvan is a nation in Western Asia consisting of the territories in the continental regions and lesser islands in our 'Persian Gulf'. It is divided into 31 provinces and one capital district (Takarhan Capital District).

Present-day Kasharvan was home to numerous dynasties that expanded onto empires throughout the Orient, most notably the Istafar (554 BC - 332 AD; Achaemenid/Parthian equivalent) and the Arkahan Dynasties (445 - 887; Sassanian Empire equivalent). During its zenith, the dynasties took part in transcontinental trade, linking Zhenia and East Asia to the Elyrian Sea and Aurora, while often challenging the Zhenians to the east and the Elyrians to the west for more territories. The Istafar and Arkahan Dynasties were the golden age for Kasharvani culture, as the dynasties led the Middle Ages in fields such as science and math (amid the MIddle Ages in Aurora).

Most of the successor dynasties until 1400 were focused on defending Kasharvan from the invasion of Ardamist Caliphates, although parts of the nation were influenced by the influx of Ardamism. After centuries of further division by numerous states, both Ardamist and Kasharvani, the Kashar Dynasty came to reunify most of modern-day Kasharvan in 1544. Since its establishment, the Kashar Dynasty would focus on improving relations and promoting trade with the Aurorans and Zhenia, while keeping the Puldanian Empire at bay. In 1766, Shah Al Ra'ad, formerly a military leader of the Kashar Dynasty, overthrew the monarchy and declared the Empire of Kasharvan, consolidating the term 'Kasharvan' for the first time. Shah Al Ra'ad, calling for the resurgence of the Kasharvani people, led a series of military campaigns against neighboring states for expansion, pushing the Puldanian Empire further west and creating one of the largest entities Kasharvan had ever seen. Shah Al Ra'ad's imperial house became the root of modern-day Kasharvani monarchy.

Throughout the 19th century, Kasharvan faced numerous invasions of Auroran forces amid the international flow of imperialism. Despite considerable losses, Kasharvan was able to defend its sovereignty due to its location of being between India and !Russia, though it remained to look for options that can consolidate its security over the region. In the late 19th century, it was one of the first nation other than Zhenia to participate in the Shinzhen movement, sharing a common goal of fighting Auroran colonialism.

During the First World War, Kasharvan sided with Zhenia in the last stages of the war, having participated in the Zhenian Invasion of Euria and India in 1917 and 1918 respectively. After the war, it was a crucial axis of Pax Zhenica, hosting one of the largest Zhenian naval bases outside the Zhenian mainland. In 1923, petroleum and natural gas deposits were disscovered in the inland deserts of Kasharvan, allowing the nation a new age of material prosperity and a major bargaining chip.

After its major defeat in World War 2 by a combined Auroran invasion from the south and east, it was allowed to keep the imperial house under the precondition that Auroran capital were allowed to be invested in Kasharvani oil and Zhenian forces withdraw from the nation entirely. However, in 1961, Shah Khalid nationalized the Kasharvani petroleum and natural gas industries and established connections with the Zhenian Third Republic, promoting anti-communist, authoritarian policies that focused power to the Shah. Amid the influx of petroleum revenues and strengthened authority of the Shah, Shah Khalid reorganized the empire into its current form, the Imperial State of Kasharvan, in 1973. Since then, the Shah has focused on using petroleum revenues for infrastructure, industrial development and the redistribution of the nation's wealth to the populace. In 2009, Shah Khalid was succeeded by Shah Amir Ra'ad by a military coup, former Prince of Kasharvan and military commander of the Kasharvani Armed Forces.

Government Type: Constitutional Monarchy - the Parliament exists, but it's basically dominated by a single party, so de facto Absolute Monarchy.

Head of State (title): Shahanshah (King of Kings)

Head of Government (title): Imperial Minister

[Specify other offices and titles if necessary]

Abstract (optional): Basically an idea originating from 'What if the Pahlavi remained in Iran'. Uninfluenced by Islam, Kasharvan is much more secular than IRL Iran.

National Overview: Valdoria is located in South America. For thousands of years it was inhabited by indigenous natives. In 1501, an expedition from Kathia first discovered present day Valdoria. A permanent settlement was established in 1509. After about 100 years, much of present day Valdoria was under Kathic control. In 1545, a new capital was created, establishing Azuria. The population of the colony grew steadily, and by 1790 it had over 4.5 million residents. Kathia kept the colony under it's control during the Revolutionary Wars. Afterwards, Kathia kept Valdoria in a "Dominion-Status", where it's international affairs and military were under Kathic control, while Kathia effectively had no control over Valdoria's internal affairs. In 1845, Kathia agreed to let Valdoria become an independent Republic.

Since 1845, Valdoria has grown to become a stable and wealthy nation. With a population of 75.3 million, it is one of the most populous nations in the world. It enjoys steady GDP growth, good equality, and it's people enjoy great freedoms compared to many of its neighbors.

Population estimate: 22,335,514

National Overview: Zimbaya was it's own country for several hundred years under the control of leaders from Zimbai. It was conquered by successive Caliphates from Baccania and beyond. Eventually, in 1705, the Zimbai Caliphate was formed and ruled much of the current Zimbayan Coast. It remained it's own country until 1831, when Kathia began its conquest of Zimbaya. By 1883, Kathia had taken over all of modern Zimbaya, and a sizeable Kathic minority began to form in the major cities, most notably Zimbai. Zimbai was slowly transformed into a moder, Auroran-like city. In 1905, Zimbaya was considered by law to not be a colony, but a full fledged Province of Kathia, with 3 Counties established. Eventually all of Zimbaya was divided into Counties.

By the end of the second World War, unrest in Zimbaya began to grow as many of the native Zimbayans called for independence. The system of government set up in Kathia following the war was regarded as unstable, with Prime Ministerial cabinet lasting sometimes for just weeks before being replaced. The Coup of 1958 was the final turning point, and a month after the coup, rebels in Zimbaya began fighting police and troops in and around Zimbai and other cities. Thus, the long and brutal Zimbaya War began. By 1960, most of the rebels sought refuge in the hilly interior of Zimbaya, making it harder for Kathic troops and loyal Zimbayan troops to find and "remove" them. By 1962, the war had come to a stalemate, and was a major issue in the 1962 Prime Ministerial elections, but many in Kathia still thought the war for what was considered a part of Metropolitan Kathia could be won. By the time the next election in 1967 rolled around, the war was nearing 10 years. Prime Minister Acathe ce Vera weighed the options, and by this point the war was unpopular, decided to grant Zimbaya a plebiscite. In 1968, the country voted to become independent.

The process of granting Zimbaya independence was done rather quickly, and immediately problems arose. By 1973, the country was unstable and on the brink of a civil war. A military coup led by Zakaria Tahir was successful, and he brought in his own plans for the nation. Oil had been discovered prior to the second World War, but the deposits were small. The search for more oil deposits was halted during the Zimbaya War, but by the 1970s more large deposits were found. Tahir used this to the nation's advantage, nationalizing the oil industry, kicking out western companies. In doing so, many western nations embargoed Zimbayan oil, creating a small oil crisis that was resolved a few months later. Tahir's brand of Liberationism has seen Zimbaya become a relativly stable nation with a high quality of living, however this is at the expense of great personal freedoms, as the Zimbayan press is considered to be one of the lest free in the world.

National Overview: Xin Jinhai is a unitary presidential republic located on the western seaboard of North America, adjoining the Genarma Ocean. Consisting of the southern half of Eastern Jin Island and adjoining islands, it is home to over 73 million residents, making it the second most populous nations in the region after the combined Northern Confederation.

What is now Xin Jinhai was originally settled by various native tribes since the Neolithic Period, prior to the arrival of Zhenian expeditions during the Zhou Dynasty starting in the 15th century. Initially arriving at what is now Dajinmen in 1455, the Zhou and later the Jin dynasties claimed what is now Xin Jinhai as an extension of their empire, thereby establishing the Viceroyalty of Jinguo. It was later admitted to the Greater Eastern Union as a province during the Zhenian Civil War, the first of any Zhenian colony to be accepted so. Its abundance of gold and other natural resources made Xin Jinhai a vital addition to the Greater Eastern Union at the time, with Xin Jinhai alone producing roughly 14% of Zhenia's economic output by the early 20th century. It became independent from Zhenian rule in 1946, following the Treaty of Uxbridge.

Indigenous longform: Faladel nha Eula

Link (unformatted, imgur): https://i.imgur.com/gNc6A0B.png

Population estimate: 126,371,000

National Overview: Euria is an island nation in south eastern !Asia. The nation is split into 29 administration divisions, 24 provinces and 5 special cities.

The earliest evidence of human habitation in the area that is now Euria dates back to around 660,000 years ago. Over time these peoples mixed with various different peoples who had settled in the islands through migration or through traders who had children with native Eurians. The vast majority of this happened between around 48,000 BC and 5,000 BC. Around the year 5,000 BC a large migration of people descended from Zhenians began. These peoples mixed with the different groups that inhabited the island to a varying degree. By the year 1,500 BC it is thought most of the Zhenians who had migrated had mixed in with the various native groups but a quite significant group of ethnic Zhenians remained. Over time these remaining ethnic Zhenians lost contact with their homeland and began to form their own language dialect and culture. This would be the final migration of such a scale to the islands.

In the early 1500s the native Eurians had their first contact with the Thracians and in 1532 the expedition of Henegon ka Denere for the Thracians landed in what is now the capital city. They claimed the islands for Thrace, however they were killed later that year when natives turned on them. The Thracians did not return to solidify their claim until 1557. This time they had a much more aggressive strategy to control the islands. The Thracians which settled on the island began to learn the languages of the natives and taught them how to speak Elyrian. Vayonist missionaries began to travel to Euria and spread Vayonism to the natives. Initially Vayonists remained mostly in the areas surrounding the capital but by the early 1600s the religion had began to spread across the islands as the Thracians gained more control over the land. The natives began to syncretise Vayonism with various aspects of their traditional religion. Throughout the later 1600s the natives remained content with the Thracian rule with many being loyal to the crown. This sense of loyalty began the formation of a pan-Eurian identity with their own dialect of Elyrian as the language, cultural traditions which all of the nation adhered to, and Vayonism as the religion of the people.

The pan-Eurian identity created a desire among some sections of the population for an independent Euria but when the nation was turned into a Viceroyalty where the natives held significant power in 1744 this desire for independence died down. When the Thracian mainland was conquered in 1805 the nation was given its first taste of independence. The native elites took significantly more power due to the Thracians having no one to back them up against the natives. This era lasted until 1823 when Thrace was reconquered, however by now the vast majority of the native population was in favour of an independent Euria. In 1827 the first nationalist revolt took place in the capital city. The revolt failed but it was a warning sign to the Thracians of what was come. Nationalist violence continued throughout the 1800s until the nation gained independence. Following independence the nation remained closely allied to Thrace and the Thracians came to aid when Euria was attacked by Zhenia in 1916 however in the end the Zhenians still managed to annex the nation.

Once the violence of the early 1900s was over Euria attempted to create a strong democratic system. This democratic system succeeded for the first 20 or so years but by the 1970s the nation had become a de facto one-party state under the Eurian Nationalist People's Front (ENPF) which dominated Eurian politics until 1998 when a large effort by the people to monitor the elections and stop vote rigging led to the ENPF losing an election for the first time since 1964. However, this was not all positive as in the aftermath of this the widespread corruption and messing with financial figures was revealed which showed that the government had lied about their revenues and the amount of debt they held. Following this the economy entered a recession and by 2004 it was 70% smaller than it had been in 1997. By 2007 the economy had began to grow again and the government began various programs to improve infrastructure, invest in the nations military and wipe out poverty. Between 2007 and 2015 absolute poverty fell from 35.9% to 22.1%. On top of this economic growth during this period averaged 8% with a slight dip between the years of 2013 and 2015. The Vayonist hierarchy continue to hold significant sway over Eurian politics and between 94 and 97% of the population claim to be Vayonist with 60 to 80% of these being active within the religion. However, traditional values are not always followed with at least 60% of births being outside of wedlock.

Postby Spalla » Wed Oct 03, 2018 2:19 pm

INWU | Official Map Claim

Claim Classification (Main Nation or NPC): Main Nation

Indigenous shortform: Спалла

Longform name: Federal Republic of Spalla

Population estimate: 10,000,000 at first, grows to 50,000,000

National Overview: Impoverished, arguable political status, ethnically divided, remnant of previous political developments.

Government Type: Divided into three: The smaller Southern Coalition which has almost all the arable land and fresh, liquid water. A larger Northern coalition which has almost all the mineral wealth and better technology and lives in the mountains and valleys. And the Central Gaalsien which are religious fanatics that live in the wastes in the central desert and generally make a huge mess of things.

Head of State (title): Diamid

Head of Government (title): Diamid

The Diamid, a council of all the tribal elders, meets as equals. There are two tribes in the Southern Diamid, five tribes in the Northern Diamid, and the Gaalsien and Khaaneph in the Central Wastes.

Abstract (optional): They are a relatively poor, hardy nation (think pre-oil Qatar or Kuwait not pre-contact Native American tribes) that has discovered there is a MASSIVE oil field (think like Ghawar in Saudi Arabia) in the central wastes and the Coalition has discovered it and decided to move to claim the field for it's self.

Also, for those wanting some back story, my factbook at https://www.nationstates.net/nation=spa ... l=factbook should suffice.

if the right and honourable crown should see fit to approve such a great claim by a humble peasant, such as myself

National Overview: A confederation formed in 1900 largely to counter the threat of foreign interference, the Confederation exists only on an international level, although it does have some non-obligatory minimum of individual federal healthcare, education, and obligatory defense spending. As constraining as this is, it's mutual nature leads to beneficial in-trading in the confederation.

INWU | Official Map Claim

Claim Classification (Main Nation or NPC): Main Nation

Shortform name: Malyovitsa

Indigenous shortform: Мальовица, Malyovitsa]

Longform name: Republic of Malyovitsa

Indigenous longform: Република Мальовица, Republika Malyovitsa]

Link (unformatted, imgur): https://i.imgur.com/DdH06gh.png

Population estimate: 62,037,941

National Overview: In relation to other nations in the world, Malyovitsa is a pretty new nation. Having been part of the much larger N/A Empire for much of its existence, it wasn't until 1819 that the state became independent, following a successful Republican revolution that saw the Empire expelled from the Malyovitsan borders. However, the leadesr had only planned to gain independence, and once achieved they were unsure of what to do with it, resulting in a haphazard government policy that ensured the survival on the new nation by the skin of its teeth, with nationalistic unity being one of the main foundations that the nation stood upon. For much of the 19th century, Malyovitsa opted to remain outside of international politics if it could be helped, instead focusing within and trying to ensure the nation and economy stayed afloat.

However, as generations went by, many Malyovitsans began to dream of national glory, and the outbreak of the First World War provided such a chance. Allying itself with not!victors, the success in the war allowed the politicians expand the size of Malyovitsa significantly, however it also bred a generation of men that were discontent with the glory the government had promised them. The withdrawal of military pensions for veterans of the World War proved to be a step too far, with veteran groups reacting violently and plunging Malyovitsa into a civil war between Republican groups and veteran groups, who's political tones soon shifted to communism. During the turmoil, many ethnic minority states also declared their independence, complicating the situation further. By 1930, however, the Republicans had managed to retake much of the country and rebellious regions, with the last outpost of communist insurgency being put down on July 5th 1931. However, retribution for the civil war was not directed at the veterans, but instead to the ethnic minorities that attempted to declare their independence, with the government beginning to instituted various restrictions to these groups and moving them from their ancestral homelands, with a culling of numerous minority groups being rumoured to have occurred in this era, often labelled the 'Ethnic War'.

Preferring to remain out of the carnage of the Second World War (subject to change), Malyovitsa spent the next 70 years attempting to bury its bloodied past and conduct during the civil war, making strides to appear as a modern, western, and liberal Republic, a beacon of sorts as to what Slavic states could be. However, a corruption scandal, as well as the rediscovery of files pertaining to the Ethnic War, have placed this image of civilised conduct on the precipice of collapse.

Economically, the state has a large manufacturing base, with industries such as textiles, construction, and automobile construction, having the largest footprints on the economy.
Government Type: Unitary Representative Presidential Republic

Head of State (title): President of Malyovitsa

Head of Government (title): First Servant of State


Abstract (optional): In Malyovitsa, it is rude to not offer any guests a drink or food before talking.
