The North is sparsely populated, with cold tundras and the only people for miles are in multiple military training bases. A third of the nation's total military assets are in the North.
The East is the urban center of Tartonica. 2,402,093,774 people live on the East Coast as late as April 13, 2010. It is the primary manufacturing, services, and technological center of Tartonica.
The West is the other, smaller urban center of the nation, totaling 501,070,592 people from April 13, 2010 figures. The West is the primary shipping capital of the nation, and known for its comparatively low cost of living.
The South is the farming sector, providing enough food to allow the government to export food, unlike most other nations of Tartonica's population. New advents in technology allows vertical farming to be possible in the main processing cities along the Southern portion of the South.
There are 20 districts, 5 Special Administrative Regions, and a semi-autonomous region.

Government

The Government of The Socialist Monarchy of Tartonica is divided into the Executive Branch, Judicial Branch, and the Legislative branch.

Executive Branch- The Executive Branch of the nation consists of the Emperor of Tartonica, currently Chang Hongxing. The Emperor is determined by right of birth, and has the ability to declare wars, propose bills, veto bills, and in the case of martial law, complete command of the nation. Should the Emperor be assassinated, the Prince of the Nation steps up to be the Emperor. If, in the unlikely event of the entire royal family being murdered, then the Assembly takes temporary control of the government until the people can decide on a new Emperor.

Judicial Branch- The Judicial Branch consists of several federal courts, and the People's Court. The People's Court consists of 6 judges, and a Supreme Judge, who's vote counts twice. Each judge in the People's Court is directly elected by the people of the nation, and the Supreme Judge is hand-picked by the Emperor. Judges in the People's Court serve 10-year terms, and the Supreme Judge serves for 5-year terms.

Legislative Branch- The Legislative Branch consists of the People's Assembly, the unicameral law-making body of the nation. It has the ability to pass bills, override vetoes by a 90% majority, make treaties, and amend the Constitution of the nation. Assemblymen and women are elected to 4-year terms. Only the Socialist Party and the Civilian Party are allowed to select candidates. The Civilian Party is more centrist to center-right while the Socialist Party is leftist, though not to the extreme. The Socialist Party is technically the party that advocates for social liberalism, and the Civilian Party is everyone else lumped together, resulting in low seat-numbers due to conflicting ideals. The People's Assembly is led by the Premier, which is also a de facto member of the Executive Branch. He has similar powers as the Emperor, but the Emperor has the ability to override anything not related to diplomatic or militaristic means.

There are also multiple ministries, including the Tartonican External Affairs Ministry, Tartonican Investigations Assembly, and Tartonican Internal Affairs Ministry. The heads of the Tartonican ministries are appointed by the Emperor, and can serve up until retirement or forced abdication by the Emperor, or a majority vote by the People's Assembly.

The government has a monopoly on the mailing industry, power industries, oil drilling, and 80% of the communications industry. Private companies provide public transportation, with government-regulated prices. The People's Assembly has the ability to raise or lower taxes by a majority vote of 75%, and close down any company deemed to be "unruly" or "monopolistic".

The GDP of the entire nation is:R$93,321,960,391,296.00
The GDP per capita is: R$29,523.62
The unemployment rate is: 2.60%

History
5000B.C-2500B.C- Dark Ages
*Tribal warfare was frequent, as the first signs of Tartonican inhabitants arrived.

2500B.C-500A.D- Empire Age
*After the Dark Ages, a coalition of tribes united, and conquered the other tribes, forming the first Tartonican Empire.
*Prosperity grew to sky-rocketing heights, with one of the largest economies of the world at its peak in 500B.C

500A.D-600A.D- Turmoil Age
*Foreign invaders attacked from all sides of the Empire, while it was in a depression, bringing it down. The tenacious people of Tartonica managed to finally drive them out at the end of this age, but it would forever leave a mark.

600A.D-1800A.D- Colonial Age
*After the reuniting of Tartonica, the Tartonican Military was rebuilt, and promptly set out to conquer their nearby neighbors who invaded them during the Turmoil Age. After a war lasting from 600A.D-900A.D, the entire area was stalemated between a conglomerate of nations against Tartonica. Eventually, the Conglomerate launched a final, desperate attack on June 9, 901. The attack was a disaster, and the Tartonicans counter-attacked. The Conglomerate fell, and revenge was finally completed.
*After the long war, Tartonica entered an age of prosperity.
*During the 1700's, Tartonica participated in minor colonization attempts, and were successful, but never managed to keep up with Europe's colonies.

1800A.D-1920A.D- Industrial Age
*The Industrial Age allowed for many new inventions to reach Tartonica, and Tartonica's military was revitalized as a result, adding automatic guns, tanks, and other things into its arsenal.

1920A.D-1940A.D- Civil War era
*The Civil War was fought between Monarchists, who wished for the Monarchy to remain in power, because they've been largely successful thus far, and the Socialists, a group of people wanting for the working class to have a say in government.
*In November 11,1940, the Beihai Conference concluded the Tartonican Civil War, with a mutual agreement to allow for the workers to have a large portion of the government, yet keeping the Emperor as the head of government. That formed the basis of today's People's Assembly-Premier-Emperor government triangle.

1940-1990- Militarization Age
*Tartonica's involvement in World War II was immense, including massive armament supplies to the European Allies, and a fourth of the nation's armed forces committed to both theaters of the war.
*During the Cold War, Tartonica abstained from joining either coalition, and preferred to be part of the "Non-Aligned Nations", although many specialists comment that their government structure is more like the United States, despite being called "Socialists".
*Massive military gains, including the advent of nuclear weaponry, allowed for Tartonica to become a major power.
*Tartonica officially entered the Space race in 1973, when it launched the space probe "People".

1990-Present- Information Era
*Computers and the Internet rule, as the technologies sector boomed. Tartonica's economical gains were so many, few nations can match the speed of Tartonica's economical growth, with the GDP nearly doubling in 15 years.

The TD-30 is the latest in a long line of the TD class of sub-machine guns. Primarily used as a secondary weapon as opposed to a pistol, it is employed only in extraordinarily tight quarters, or if the main assault rifle runs out of ammunition.

Image
The TA-SPS is a weapon specifically designed for special operations. Although not shown, silencers are frequently attached to the barrel. Even without a silencer, it is extremely silent, and the only way you'll hear the weapon fired is if your on the same floor as the person who's shooting. Another thing is that it has barely-noticeable recoil. The only bad part is that it lacks any ability to have an "under the barrel" item such as a grenade launcher.

Education
Tartonica's education system is government-owned, except for a few approved private schools.
Schools are mandatory for people from the ages 5-18, but everyone has the option to drop out at the age of 16, 15 with parental consent. The language used in elementary is Cantonese, while the language starting from 8th grade, as a medium for communicating, is English. English and Cantonese are both mandatory classes, with emphasis put on English in elementary and college, while in middle and high schools, Cantonese is emphasized.

Democratic Tartonica

A large portion of Tartonica's southern section is called Democratic Tartonica. Originally created to satisfy the fascists and the freedom fighters, it eventually grew until the government declared Democratic Tartonica an autonomous region.

It has permission to do the following-
-Make their own laws.
-Maintain their own armed forces (Current number of soldiers is 12,030,000)
-NEW-Democratic Tartonica no longer is allowed to maintain such a large military, after viewing the GDP impact. Now, it is decreased to only 3,030,000. Also, the Premier retains the right to command Democratic Tartonica's military.
-Declare war
-NEW-Democratic Tartonica is no longer allowed to declare war on the basis of imperialistic means.
-Make PEACE treaties
-Make the nation either totalitarian or anarchic(In which Tartonica would be forced to intervene).
-NEW- Democratic Tartonica's military is not allowed to enter Tartonica's airspace nor grounds, unless previously allowed by the Minister of Defense or the Premier.

It does NOT have permission to do the following-
-Make trading, alliance pacts, or any treaties other than peace treaties/armistices.
-Declare independence.
-Begin a nuclear arms program.
-Make a military more than 1% its population, and more than 40% of Tartonica's military.

It has a few things to abide by/guaranteed to have-
-During normal times, the nation has almost-full autonomy. During normal martial law, only Tartonica proper is under martial law. Under Sector 2 Martial Law, Democratic Tartonica must give up control.
-Any laws in Tartonica would not affect Democratic Tartonica, unless Sector 2 Martial Law is in place.
-Any orders by the Emperor must be first-priority to be confirmed in the legislature, regardless of what proposals there are.
-The Head of Government and State is Tartonican-appointed.

Current Status of Democratic Tartonica
Type of Government- Libertarian Federal Republic
Type of Economy- Lasseiz-Faire Capitalism
Current Head of Government and State- Yi Xiuqi (Premier-appointed)

Policy on Immigrants
All immigrants, defined as newcomers to Tartonica, are required to permit police strip-searches in a PRIVATE room. Any immigrant, even if said immigrant has a valid Tartonican Resident Card (Similar to Green Cards of the USA), can be discharged should a valid court case demand it.

Policy on Foreign Companies opening their business in Tartonica
Tartonica welcomes all foreign businesses, but requests that they follow some extra guidelines, in addition to the minimum wage laws (Currently set at R$7.10) and labor laws. All foreign workers/employers are required to apply for a Workers Visa via the nearest Tartonican consulate or embassy. Additionally, Tartonican government officials retain the right to inspect any foreign-sponsored business in Tartonica, at any undeclared time.

Workers Visas (Normal) require a valid ID of your nation, a valid passport, and a valid copy of your police record, dating to five years prior. All Normal Visas expire after six months, so renewal appointments should be made after five months. Only valid for small cities and Changzhou.

Workers Visas (EXP) require a valid ID of your nation, and a valid passport. Tartonica will personally run the background checks. Additionally, a mild psychological test is administered. EXP visas expire after a year, and is valid for everywhere except for Beihai.

Workers Visas(Premium) require a valid ID of your nation, a valid letter from your company, a valid passport, and an extensive background check, as well as a psychological test which is much more intensive than the EXP psychological test. All medical records will be examined as well, to be sure you won't be a burden. Premium visas expire after a year, and is valid for everywhere including the capital.

Religion
Tartonica is officially a secular state, with no official religion in order to prevent alienating certain groups. However, there are several guidelines to what is permitted as a religion and what is not-
-Any religion involving sacrificing live or dead animals is not permitted, under any circumstances.
-Any religion commending the use of terrorism as a form of "spreading the religion" is strictly prohibited.
-Any religion promoting VIOLENCE of any kind is not allowed.
-Any religion that goes against Tartonican laws is prohibited from exercising that particular rule.
-Any religion has to go through Tartonican review before acceptance.
If a religion abides by those guidelines, then it will be permitted to exercise its rule. Tartonican law affirms the right to subscribe to any religion at all, as long as its an accepted religion.

General Foreign Policy

Tartonica's foreign policy is determined by the Premier and the Emperor jointly.
-Tartonica generally respects a nation's sovereignty, and would not invade unless obligated to do so, or if the nation's ideals are extremely conflicting to Tartonica's own.
-In the case of a civil war, Tartonica favors Socialists(social liberalism) over anything else. Communism, contrary to popular belief, is NOT advocated by the Tartonican government.
-In trade, Tartonica prefers lower tariffs, and all allies have at least a minor discount on tariffs.
-Tartonica tends to not be imperialistic, unless if the other belligerent nation has wronged Tartonica in the past.
