Nation description: Manaban (满阿半) is a hypothesis of what Manchukuo would be if it would0ve survived WWII and gotten to modern times, and as such, it's made of different ethnicities that surround it. It started as an absolute monarchy, but today it is a Federal Republic, though the Aisin Gioro (ex-royal family) almost always wins elections which means there is a certain level of corruption. Weather is mostly dry and cold; as you get closer to the coast it's more humid and populated. The further you move to the countryside, it gets drier and less populated. Huge TV and electronics manufacturer (if these are a thing in Tiandi, I don't know its era)

Population: 22,036,465
GDP (PPP) per capita: $17,946
GDP (nominal) per capita: $14,314
Military manpower (active/reserve): 90,000 / 110,000

Nation description: Tuidung was initially settled by the Vanram people who circumvened the [mountain] range, eventually reaching the coastal areas. The first coastal settlements manifested in the farm of small fishing villages, this in contrast to the agricultural inland populations, which would gradually increase in size and distribution as time went by. Historically, power and territory was evenly divided between a number of nine collaborating-competing monastic sects derived from the ethnic religion of the Vanram people. By the 1XXXs, the native populations of the region came in contact with Meisaani merchants, who established a wide number of trading stations along the coastlines. Some direct attempts at colonisation by the Meisaani were repelled through an effective combination of naval and martial prowess.

Fast forward to current day, the aforementioned monastic orders live on in the form of what could be effectively compared to OTL triads, while retaining some of the religious aspects historically found in the monastic sects. Widely regarded as a regional hub of organised crime maybe.

NATION APPLICATION

Shortform name: Tosānchi (東西地, とさあんミ)
Real life culture influence: Japan (plus my own imagination)
Real life culture of former colonizer: None
Population: 49,358,003
GDP (PPP) per capita: $43,921
GDP (nominal) per capita: $43,921
Military manpower (active/reserve): 300,000
Language(s): (All of these are, loosely, Japonic conlangs) Tosāngo (東西語, とさあんご), Shoyoson (中山語, ぞよそん), Taimoshi (東山語, たいもじ)
Nation description: A Japonic nation, Tosānchi was settled by Japonic settlers in antiquity, which developed their own branch of the Japonic language family. A bureaucratic monarchy, Tosānchi had a wealthy class of noble landowners as well as an upper middle class of bureaucrats. The Tosānchi civil service examination was open to everyone, and it was a tradition for villages to fund their brightest to take said tests, and thus the bureaucrats do not have any extensive hereditary lineage.

Tosānchi arose as an entity following the unification of various petty kingdoms. The Emperor (or Tankishi, 天君, "Heavenly Ruler") legitimized his rule by claiming a mandate of heaven, confirmed by the Tanishan religion (天道, "Heavenly Road"). In the Tanishan religion, heaven is ruled by Konmin (神, "God"), a monotheistic all-powerful deity that grants the divine right to rule due to the Emperor being of divine blood (in the ancient legends, Konmin created the first humans out of the soil, but the deity created the first Emperor from its toenails, symbolizing the Emperor's subservience to Konmin's will). Unlike Japan, where the Emperor was worshipped as a living god once, Tonsāchi never did, as despite the Emperor being of divine blood, the Tanishan religion demands that all heavenly praise go to Konmin, and no one else. The Emperor is the Son of Heaven, and as a good descendant, he must follow his filial piety by fulfilling Konmin's will as its divine steward. This led to periods of court factionalism, as aristocrats sought power in the Imperial Court. Sometimes, and especially in the Haiya period, Emperors were even deposed in favour of other royal relatives in either peasant or aristocratic rebellions.

Tonsānchi sought to emulate Tianqi, sending emisaries to study the nation and forge diplomatic links. This led to the Jinmi Period in the 600s-900s, where Tonsāchi sought to imitate Tianqi (and then Jeongmian) statecraft and beliefs to an extent.

The Jinmi period ended when a succession crisis triggered a civil war. The new Emperor reformed the state, discouraging Confucianism and promoting traditional Tonsānchi culture more in order to appeal to the commoner populace. The Sāchi period was characterized by a militaristic aristocracy and isolationism that lasted until the 1100s, when a Jeongmi-phile faction of the Imperial Court seized control. The new Haiya period was characterized not only by a resurgence in Jeongmian concepts (especially since this was a golden age in Jeongmian culture), but also on new influence from Fusen, with Tonsānchi adopting a modified Kana script for the languages spoken in its realm during this period. Unlike the Jinmi period, the Haiya court walked a fine line between adopting foreign cultures and concepts and maintaining Tonsānchi traditions. It also revived the civil service examinations abandoned in the Sāchi period. Unlike the ancient Jinmi period, it was not royal power that dominated, but noble families, whom exterted influence and made the Emperor essentially a puppet to be fought over between the aristocratic clans of the Empire. These power plays led to sporadic but more common civil wars and rebellions, as clans often fought with each other to influence or even depose Emperors.

This mildly chaotic era lasted until the 1500s, when the royal family and its allied nobility finally took control from the waning clan system in the Arinaga War. In order to placate the nobility, the Emperor granted this class a concession by allowing them to assemble and pass laws with the consent of the Emperor. The Imperial Parliament (貴族会, Konshekushun, "Nobility Meeting") was born in the Tankonshe period, which lasted from the 1500s until the 1800s. In this era, the small kingdoms of Shoyokue and Taimohen were also conquered.

The 1800s saw Tonsānchi modernise, and new ideas sprung to life. The industrialization of the country saw a new urban working class and the rise of a middle class, both of which demanded greater rights and representation. The aristocracy was also altered, especially in the latter half of the 19th century, as business tycoons of commoner backgrounds joined the ranks of nobles in terms of power and prestige and even surpassed them.

The Imperial Court initially reacted brutally against dissent, censoring, imprisoning and even executing all those who pushed against the monarchy's power, but, especially after seeing the abolition of the monarchy in Jeongmi and growing anti-establishment sentiment, the Imperial Court relented. Tosānchi underwent major reforms in the late 19th century. The nation became a democratic constitutional monarchy, instituted compulsory public education, granted workers more rights, better healthcare, etc. Initially, elections were only open to the wealthy and those persons who could pass the Voting Registration Examination, but the early 1900s did away with the latter, as the general public demanded greater representation.

Today, Tosānchi is a relatively prosperous and democratic Sinju constitutional monarchy. The Emperor holds little to no power today.

NATION APPLICATION

Shortform name: Suwannaphum (Suvarnabhumi) - The Golden Country
Real life culture influence: Thai (minorities of Mon, Shan, Lao, and Hmong in the northern regions)
Real life culture of former colonizer: Jeongmi or Fusen (or perhaps both - needs discussion on discord probably)
Population: 167,541,920 (2019 estimate census)
GDP (PPP) per capita: 20,270 USD
GDP (nominal) per capita: 6,459 USD
Military manpower (active/reserve): 310,000 active | 1,978,000 reserve
Language(s): Thai (minority languages recognized regionally), intl. languages spoken in largest cities (JM-KR, MS-CN, FS-JP)
Nation description: Settled along the multitude of rivers by various Tai-Kadai and other people groups, the nation of Suwannaphum became one of the largest powers in southern Jungju. Originally composed of multiple rivaling Indianized kingdoms taking dominance and hegemony through a system of tributaries and smaller polities in its early history, the year 7xx marked the unification by the strongest of these kingdoms [XX] under the [XX] dynasty. Dynastic rule would come to dominate until the year 15xx (?) when contact with Jeongmian and Fusenese traders resulted in the empire being dragged into the Great Power politics of the Sinjunese hegemonic powers. (to be further elaborated upon)

Dynastic rule ended with [XX] revolution in 192x, resulting in the collapse of the empire and a total shake up of the traditional political order. In a fury of nationalistic fervor and demands for worker emancipation, new liberties, and modernization the political landscape turned into a bloody battleground for various political movements. Of these movements the Workers Prosperity Party (Thai: พรรคแรงงานเจริญรุ่งเรือง - Phakraengngan Cherinrungrueang) came to dominate Suwannaphumese politics for the next four decades, before being overturned in the 197x in anti-government, anti-authoritarian, pro-democracy protests and revolts. This marked a shift from the old "workers oriented" politic towards one of reformism and economic development - this worked for a time. Yet due to crises in the core and its swift development and modernization, the country has largely seen a new wave of nationalistic fervor. The successor to the Phakraengngan, the People's Labor Movement, has continued to engage in the economic development politic and an increasingly aggressive policy of economic and foreign policy dominance over its peripheral nation-states.

Stunning skyscrapers contrasted with ancient temples along the embankments of the mother rivers - a land of gold and riches. The Golden Country welcomes you.

The Jinmi period ended when a succession crisis triggered a civil war. The new Emperor reformed the state, discouraging Confucianism and promoting traditional Tonsānchi culture more in order to appeal to the commoner populace. The Sāchi period was characterized by a militaristic aristocracy and isolationism that lasted until the 1100s, when a Jeongmi-phile faction of the Imperial Court seized control. The new Haiya period was characterized not only by a resurgence in Jeongmian concepts (especially since this was a golden age in Jeongmian culture), but also on new influence from Fusen, with Tonsānchi adopting a modified Kana script for the languages spoken in its realm during this period. Unlike the Jinmi period, the Haiya court walked a fine line between adopting foreign cultures and concepts and maintaining Tonsānchi traditions. It also revived the civil service examinations abandoned in the Sāchi period. Unlike the ancient Jinmi period, it was not royal power that dominated, but noble families, whom exterted influence and made the Emperor essentially a puppet to be fought over between the aristocratic clans of the Empire. These power plays led to sporadic but more common civil wars and rebellions, as clans often fought with each other to influence or even depose Emperors.

This mildly chaotic era lasted until the 1500s, when the royal family and its allied nobility finally took control from the waning clan system in the Arinaga War. In order to placate the nobility, the Emperor granted this class a concession by allowing them to assemble and pass laws with the consent of the Emperor. The Imperial Parliament (貴族会, Konshekushun, "Nobility Meeting") was born in the Tankonshe period, which lasted from the 1500s until the 1800s. In this era, the small kingdoms of Shoyokue and Taimohen were also conquered.

The 1800s saw Tonsānchi modernise, and new ideas sprung to life. The industrialization of the country saw a new urban working class and the rise of a middle class, both of which demanded greater rights and representation. The aristocracy was also altered, especially in the latter half of the 19th century, as business tycoons of commoner backgrounds joined the ranks of nobles in terms of power and prestige and even surpassed them.

The Imperial Court initially reacted brutally against dissent, censoring, imprisoning and even executing all those who pushed against the monarchy's power, but, especially after seeing the abolition of the monarchy in Jeongmi and growing anti-establishment sentiment, the Imperial Court relented. Tosānchi underwent major reforms in the late 19th century. The nation became a democratic constitutional monarchy, instituted compulsory public education, granted workers more rights, better healthcare, etc. Initially, elections were only open to the wealthy and those persons who could pass the Voting Registration Examination, but the early 1900s did away with the latter, as the general public demanded greater representation.

Today, Tosānchi is a relatively prosperous and democratic Sinju constitutional monarchy. The Emperor holds little to no power today.

Real life culture influence: Thai (minorities of Mon, Shan, Lao, and Hmong in the northern regions)
Real life culture of former colonizer: Jeongmi or Fusen (or perhaps both - needs discussion on discord probably)
Population: 167,541,920 (2019 estimate census)

Language(s): Thai (minority languages recognized regionally), intl. languages spoken in largest cities (JM-KR, MS-CN, FS-JP)
Nation description: Settled along the multitude of rivers by various Tai-Kadai and other people groups, the nation of Suwannaphum became one of the largest powers in southern Jungju. Originally composed of multiple rivaling Indianized kingdoms taking dominance and hegemony through a system of tributaries and smaller polities in its early history, the year 7xx marked the unification by the strongest of these kingdoms [XX] under the [XX] dynasty. Dynastic rule would come to dominate until the year 15xx (?) when contact with Jeongmian and Fusenese traders resulted in the empire being dragged into the Great Power politics of the Sinjunese hegemonic powers. (to be further elaborated upon)

Dynastic rule ended with [XX] revolution in 192x, resulting in the collapse of the empire and a total shake up of the traditional political order. In a fury of nationalistic fervor and demands for worker emancipation, new liberties, and modernization the political landscape turned into a bloody battleground for various political movements. Of these movements the Workers Prosperity Party (Thai: พรรคแรงงานเจริญรุ่งเรือง - Phakraengngan Cherinrungrueang) came to dominate Suwannaphumese politics for the next four decades, before being overturned in the 197x in anti-government, anti-authoritarian, pro-democracy protests and revolts. This marked a shift from the old "workers oriented" politic towards one of reformism and economic development - this worked for a time. Yet due to crises in the core and its swift development and modernization, the country has largely seen a new wave of nationalistic fervor. The successor to the Phakraengngan, the People's Labor Movement, has continued to engage in the economic development politic and an increasingly aggressive policy of economic and foreign policy dominance over its peripheral nation-states.

Stunning skyscrapers contrasted with ancient temples along the embankments of the mother rivers - a land of gold and riches. The Golden Country welcomes you.

By 45 years after colonists arrived at the location that is now Argonavis, Thrumbo’s capital, the then-called Gejayan Trade Company has managed to ally with local tribes and factions friendly to them, while subjugating hostile ones, forming the basis of Kasultanan Thrumbo named after the mythical animal often described in local folklores as being wise and powerful, but taciturn; only showing its powers when needed be or threatened – much like how the people of Thrumbo are expected to behave.
Thrumbo boasts an all-encompassing, affordable universal healthcare for its citizens, mandatory education up to secondary levels to its young citizens, high levels of gender equality, and its research into nuclear power and space programs. Observers, however, criticize Thrumbo’s jingoistic and nativist policies when it comes to social life and political representations, its stubbornness to disarm its weapons of mass destruction, and its stringent, uncompromising immigration laws.
The current Sultana is Her Highness Salsprim XIV (formerly Princess Miranti Aurellia Rachmayani), succeeding the previous Hanun XII after her twenty-year tenure in office has run its course.
