Metztlitlaca - Short Overview The Dominions of Metztlitlaca, the ex-colony of the Empire of Shffahkia, gained it's independence in 1951 after the Shffahkian revolution destroyed the initial empire with the old monarchy fleeing to the colony to form the Crescent Kingdom. Due to Shffahkian and Fulgistani influence, a violent coup overthrew the Crescent Kingdom to eventually form the South Palu Confederation. The SPC eventually came to an end between 1992-2010 depending on who you ask which led to the current regieme. The nation isn't very well known by the average person living in Argis or Europa, just another Low-Income-Country within Alharu/Aurelia, perhaps only common stereotypes of a mass-slavery and human sacrifice ever reaches the ears of those high above in the northern hemisphere. Of course like any country, Metztlitlaca is far more complex then a couple stereotypes. Area: 686,550 km^2 Perimeter: 5625 km Population: 21,430,663 Population Density: 31.22 per km^2 GDP per Capita: $3,010.25 GDP total: $64,511,653,300 Metztlitlaca is a loose federation of 7 dominions.. 2 of the 7 dominions are ran as constitutional monarchies with considerable but not complete power, with the other 5 ran as republics. Each Dominion has high levels of autonomy politically with their own devolved parliaments under their own unitary systems. All Dominions must follow the Teopac of Collective Intent (the highest governing body). Democracy within Metztlitlalio is corrupt and the few political parties involved are often easily bribed by outside forces. Cultures & Religion. The Azlo indigenous group migrated into southern Palu in 300 AD, almost entirely replacing the original inhabitants related to the Lyceans in northern Palu except for the Iwica on the south-eastern coast. Currently there are 14 ethnic groups that make up the greater Azlo cultural group. The Metztlica are the largest group and the namesake of the nation. The others are the Tlaxcalixe, Tepanizo, Tlahuizo, Colhuazo, Chalica, Khīlitikhī, Acolīca, Cohlca, Xochimīca, Pipīlca, [Mountain_1], [Jungle_1], and [Desert_1]. The two non-indigenous groups to Metztlitlaca are the Hong (Huang migrants from Fulgistan, interracial marriages are very common) and the Yatotla as mentioned previously. Due to Shffahkian colonialism from 1800-1851 and Salvian crusader states from the 17th to 18th centuries, Christianity carved itself a large section of influence in the nation - primarily across the coastline - with Huecatoc (the native pagan religion of the Azlo) making up much of the interior. The Shffahkian Christianity that came to southern Palu was primarily Fleur de Lysian Catholicism which is remarkably similar to the Salvian Catholicism brought upon by Slavian crusaders. Economy Only 20% of the nation’s population live in urban areas, primarily within the capital city of economic centres. 62% of Metztlitlacans work in the primary sector, split primarily between agriculture (generic cash crops and more exotic tropical fruits and vegetables) and mining of low-density metals – primarily Aluminium, Titanium, and Magnesium -, with smaller parts in forestry and fishing. 21% work in the secondary sector in manufacturing and refinery of metals. Lastly only 12% work in the tertiary sector – primarily tourism. The last 5% is within administration or quaternary sector businesses. This has begun to change in recent years due to international aid in the industrialization of Metztlitlaca as well as the encouragement of tourists into the nation from Il Domineo nations and Fulgistan. Metztlitlaca follows a State Capitalist economics model with the Teopac of Finance being the major body in regulations and management of national companies. Due to wide-scale corruption within the government the Teopac of Finance can often be sluggish or turn a blind eye towards more anti-consumer policies or ideas. One major issue within the economy – especially the agricultural sector – is the use of mass forced labour from prisons, which has been a part of the economy since ancient times and exploited heavily during Limonaian rule. Current aid for industrialisation have come with added rules towards the gradual removal of forced labour. Tourism is a moderately sized sector, primarily around the capitals of coastal dominions with the tourist capital of Nuovo Arburio – pronounced Nuvo Abulio in the Yatotlan Cristinese dialect. Generally tourist advisors state to remain within certain dominions and dominion capitals when travelling. When coming to Metztlitlaca, it is also heavily advised and even required by many tourist companies to take several injections for tropical diseases such as Malaria before coming into the country as Malaria is an all-season disease at higher latitudes/ Military & Foreign Affairs Metztlitlaca's military is almost entirely for homefield use with limited capabilities to extend outside of the Palu Peninsula or LAANN nations. Metztlitlaca gets most of it's military equipment and firearms from Fulgistan. The nation has very few tanks , instead relying on primarily armoured vehicles and towed artillery along with infantry. There isn't much to talk about here outside of Azlo War Culture and it's leanings towards authoritarianism. Metztlitlaca is willing to befriend more unorthodox regimes that the rest of the Eurth community may be more anxious to (openly) trade and interact with. However, most of Metztlitlaca's network of alliances are within Il Domineo and the League of Alharu and Aurelian Native Nations. Metztlitlaca has an economic partnership program designed around the removal of forced prison labour, although prison labour isn't unique to Metztlitlaca, it's explicit and mass-usage along with a highly punitive prison have led many to condemn the nation for it's practises. Current aid for industrialisation comes with additional guidelines towards the gradual removal of said forced labour under the economic partnership program.
