Federation of Aruthea

spacer.png

Aruthea, officially known as the Federation of Aruthea, is an archipelagic country located on the [XX] continent. It consists of approximately around 4,453~ islands, covering a land area of 176,830 km2. Aruana Tuli, located on the southern part of the mainland, is the nation’s capital. The country is inhabited by around 30 million people, divided into three major ethnic groups: Nuwan (47.2%), Kayaran (37.3%) and Chengzese (13.2%), with a small proportion (2.3%) of the population being of foreign descent. The nation's economy is prospering with an impressive GDP per capita of 26,000.

Geography

Aruthea has a tropical maritime climate that is usually hot and humid. The country experiences two seasons: hot-dry season and wet-rainy season, although the distribution of annual rainfall isn’t spread evenly throughout the archipelago. The mainland experiences the highest annual rainfall, while Kayar the lowest. Winds are usually moderate and predictable, with monsoon blowing from the south of the archipelago. Typhoons and storms usually occur during the start of the wet-rainy season, so sailors and fishermen usually stay in the docks during that time.

 

History

Modern History

The first decade of Aruthean independence is plagued with rampant political instabilities. Many competing radical movements fought for complete dominance in the nation’s politics, and the newly-formed parliament is crippled by infighting among the representatives. Meanwhile, the populace were suffering from severe poverty, weak economy, and low education, with rampant ethnic and religious conflict, furthering the division inside Aruthea.

Flag of the Free Nuwa Movement

In November 1937 and later July 1938, the Aruthean Communist Party attempted several failed uprisings against the kingdom, which prompted the government to completely ban them and execute their leaders. In January 1940, seeing the central government ignorant of their hardships, radical Nuwans formed an armed militia called Free Nuwa Movement (FNM) to free the common Nuwans from the yoke of the unstable government. The FNM saw multiple conflicts against the army, though never decisively defeated. This is because some of the military and the parliament were sympathetic for the FNM’s cause, as the Nuwan made up a significant portion of both the army and the senate.

Queen Tuluana XII

Disillusioned by democratic bickering and endless unrest, on 10 December 1942, the Queen of Aruthea, Tuluana XII, launched a surprise coup against democratic institutions and the army using the Kayaran-dominated Aruthean Navy, securing for herself the supreme power to decisively rule Aruthea. The queen’s reign is extremely focused on improving the economy and lowering the poverty with effective policies such as the formation of the Central Bank of Aruthea, nationalisation of vital colonial corporations, redistribution of neglected farmlands and plantations to the common people, and many more. She also successfully negotiated with the FNM to stand down by offering them amnesty and granting autonomy for the Nuwa region. Her impressive administration made her extremely popular with the common Aruthean, be it Kayaran or Nuwan. To this day, she is usually referred to as The Mother of Aruthean Economy. Unfortunately, after almost 3 years since the coup, Queen Tuluana died of illness, caused by breast cancer. Her death came as a shock for the nation, as the illness was kept secret until her death. It is said that she worked hard for the common Aruthean people even though she was fighting her own illness. The queen left no heir, which made her power fall onto the navy’s hand. Leadership was awarded to Admiral Seyal Taka, the Chief of Staff of the Aruthean Navy before the queen’s death.

Admiral Seyal Taka

Under Admiral Taka’s reign, the kingdom was effectively changed into the Republic of Aruthea. Unlike the Queen, he had no patience for the Nuwan people. He promoted the idea of Kayaran superiority. While the Kayar Islands were being intensively industrialized, the mainland was generally neglected. Combined with his lavish budget plan biased for the navy, the FNM rose up once more in September 1946 to overthrow the admiral’s tyrannical regime. Taka responded by enlisting more Kayaran for the Naval Army to stamp down the FNM rebellion and intensified discrimination against the Nuwan. He also expelled generations of Nuwan living in the capital city of Aruana Tuli, which has a significant Nuwan minority, replaced by Kayaran immigrants to further the industrialization effort. The FNM continued their guerilla warfare against the Naval Army, easily winning the support of common Nuwan people, though never resulted in anything more than stalemates. While the Kayaran were treated as the highest class and Nuwan the lowest, the Chengzese found themselves in a unique situation, where they can support either the regime or the rebellion. Taka was well-aware of this. He gave them some degree of autonomy and subsidized their economy and welfare. This made them supportive of the regime, and hated by the rebellion, furthering the division between ethnic Nuwan and Chengzese.

Admiral Kila Yaserat

In May 1980, Taka died of kidney problems. He was succeeded by his son, Commodore Arul Karisi. His reign was plagued with famines, massive economic downturn, and hyperinflation. This made him completely unpopular, even among the Kayaran and the navy personnel. His incompetence caused the Naval Army to be repeatedly defeated by the FNM, to the point where the rebellion army were approaching the Chengzese province and the capital city of Aruana Tuli. In January 1984, Karisi resigned and escaped to a foreign country to avoid the political fallout, leaving Admiral Kila Yaserat in charge. Yaserat was rather pro-democracy, as he is half-Chengzese himself. He organized the Aruana Tuli Conference, where he invited representatives from the common Kayaran, Chengzese, and Nuwan, while also inviting the high-ranking naval elites, regional leaders, and delegation from the FNM. He proposed a federal nation based on ethnic lines that comprised of 4 states: State of Kayar, State of East Nuwa, State of West Nuwa, and State of Chengzese, with the capital located at the Federal District of Aruana Tuli. After negotiation of several compromises, most notably the exclusivity of the position of head of state only for the Aruthean Admiralty, freedom for each state to raise their own military, and lower taxes levied from each state, a new federation was born.

 

Government

High Senate Main Building

Aruthea is a federation with a parliamentary system. The Supreme Admiral of Aruthea is the head of state and the commander-in-chief of the Aruthean Federal Armed Forces, elected democratically by the people, though candidacy is limited only for the members of the Aruthean Admiralty, which mostly consists of high-ranking naval elites.

The highest representative body on the federal level is simply called the High Senate, a unicameral parliament functioning as the nation’s legislative body and to monitor the executive branch. The senate consists of 135 delegates in total, with each state represented by their own 30 delegates, and additional 15 delegates representing the Federal District of Aruana Tuli.

The executive power is vested in the Central Cabinet, led by the Prime Minister of Aruthea which acts as its head of government. The prime minister is chosen by the members of the High Senate, of which the prime minister must be a member of. The cabinet is responsible for federal governing, policy-making, decision-making, and foreign affairs.

The nation is comprised of 4 unitary states: Kayar, East Nuwa, West Nuwa, and Chengzi. The State Governor acts as both head of state and head of government for each state, monitored by their own State Legislative Council. Each state is divided into city/county, which are then divided into municipalities. 
 

Economy

spacer.png                                 spacer.png

The Aruthean economy is effectively split into two: the agricultural and natural extraction economy concentrated on the mainland; and the industrial economy concentrated on the Kayar Islands. Tourism is also a significant contributor for the whole Aruthean economy, attracting more than 8.5 million tourists annually.

Aruthea has a low unemployment rate, never exceeding 6% since the 2000s. However, the economical split between the industrial Kayar and the agricultural mainland means that the nation has one of the highest income inequalities in the world. 

The currency of Aruthea is Aruthean Korm (ARK), issued by the Federal Bank of Aruthea.

 

Demographics

Aruthea is demographically diverse in terms of ethnic and religion. In terms of ethnicity, the Kayar Islands are mostly populated by Kayaran themselves. The mainland is dominated by the Nuwan, with a significant Chengzese population to the west and Kayaran population to the southeast. In terms of religion, Aruthean consist of Catholics (51%), Paganism (33%), and Islam (15%), with Paganism concentrated on Kayar Islands, Islam on the mainland, and Catholics spread evenly across.
