Recommended Posts

Aurivizh, Officially the State of Aurivizh (Aurivizht: Saozneg Aurivizh) is a nation located on [continent]. With a population of 8.8 million, it is a socially conservative nation. Airivizh is a Unitary Directorial Republic under a dictatorship, it's two heads of state are Tudig Gwernig, who is the Head Minister, and Mathéo Lainé, who is the Deputy Minister. Aurivizh is an authoritarian nation, free speech is heavily restricted, and there is no right to protest. Most of the newspapers are state-ran and are essentially state-owned propaganda machines. The United Armed Forces of Aurivizh (Armeoù Unanet a Aurivizh - AUA) has conscription and is around 120,000 active strong, of which only 15,000 are professionals, the rest being volunteers or conscripts. Aurivizh has a GDP per capita of around $12,000. Its three largest cities are Alivezh, Doaned and Virizhon. Alivezh is the capital.

 

History

 

What today is Aurivizh was first inhabited by Celtic groups around 700 BCE. These Celtic groups, today known as the "Aurivizht Proto-Celts", are responsible for the majority of Aurivizh's Megalithic sites, of which it has many. These proto-celts eventually settled down, and the first farming communities of Aurivizh were created in the area of modern-day Galivizh.

 

The first real state was established in 832 CE when king Tivanou of Aurivizh, also known as the "Tad ar vro" (Father of the Nation) formed the Duchy of Galivizh near the coast. Galivizh took over multiple bordering communes, extending into an area making up a third of the modern-day borders. Tivanou passed away in 856, and with him, his nation went. Galivizh collapsed into multiple smaller states, of which the largest was the Kingdom of Alivezh. During this time, Christianity was introduced into Aurivizh.

 

By 1300, the situation in Aurivizh has stabilised, and once more a single nation was in control over the majority of the land, the Kingdom of Alivezh. Alivezh quickly proved to be the most important city in Aurivizh, as its location near the sea, and fertile land made it perfect for trade between the Aurivizht nation-states. Alivezh, and its monarchy led by King Budac, had great aspirations for Alivezh, which, for Budac meant the unification of Aurivizh. Budac would not live to see that dream come true, but his successor's successor, King Baglan, made it come true, and in 1494 the Kingdom of Aurivizh-Izel, the first true Aurivizht nation was formed, with Baglan on its throne. In 1502, the largest church in the nation and the most famous Aurivizht building, Kouent a Sant Meriasek, finished its construction period, which had lasted for almost 200 years.

 

Aurivizh-Izel looked beyond its borders for territory, moving into neighbouring Aurivizht nations which did not give in to his hegemony, and then into completely different nations of Celts. Airivizh-Izel assimilated most of them in brutal ways, which often included the torching of entire villages. However, after two hundred years of conquering, Aurivizh-Izel reached its peak, and in 1630 the nation was the largest any Aurivizht nation ever was, almost double the size of the modern nation. Yet, the nation could not stay, and after the death of king Baglan III, large sections of the nation which had been conquered from other Celts revolted, resulting in Aurivizh-Izel collapsing into the centre nation, just slightly smaller than the modern borders.

 

Aurivizh-Izel required reforming, which happened. King Saliou reformed the kingdom of Aurivizh-Izel into just the kingdom of Aurivizh. He also reconquered the region of Tousaeg in a short war, giving Aurivizh its current borders. From 1744 to 1871 the monarchy reigned supreme, but in 1871, the Council of Advice was established, essentially turning Aurivizh into a constitutional monarchy. Aurivizh began its process of industrialisation in 1891, with its first textile company opening in June of that year.

 

Aurivizh has had a turbulent twentieth century. The main two turning points were the 1943 revolution against the monarchy. The monarchy had become unpopular with the majority of the people, and a democratic union took power in the Council of Advice and turned the entire nation into a pure democracy. The second major event was the 1967 "Great" coup, which saw the democratic government, which had become weak due to factional infighting, being replaced by the Authoritarian government of Turien Rouault. Rouault shaped Aurivizh into his vision, a strong, authoritarian state with a strong economy. This came at the expense of civil liberties, and the democratic rights which Aurivizh had enjoyed for a mere 20 years. Rouault passed away in 1991 and was succeeded by Madenig Moigne. Moigne himself worked to make Aurivizh a more militarized nation, still continuing the strong government Rouault had imagined, but he passed away before his great military dream for Aurivizh was achieved. Moigne was replaced with Tudig Gwernig, the current leader of Aurivizh. Gwernig is, much like his two predecessors, interested in continuing a strong regime for Aurivizh, and has worked to achieve that. Ever since he took power in 2002, he has instigated plans to modernise his nation's economy, moving away from agriculture and moving into manufacturing and mining. Gwernig has also put reforms into infrastructure, modernising the adequated railways and refurbishing the roads. 

 

Future

In mid-2022, elections for the Council of the State, the lower house, are to take place. These elections are restricted to just the heads of government ministries, and as such just elect what people are going to be in the council of 40.

Also in mid-2022, the new Galivizh-Alivezh railway line is scheduled to open. It will be the second modernised rail line of the nation, going from Alivezh on the northern coast, to Galivizh further in the east.

Most of the rural infrastructure is outdated and not adequate anymore for the traffic it needs to sustain. Aurivizh is going to need to replace or modernise it.

In order to sustain the current economy, and to prevent it from shrinking, Aurivizh is going to need to open up its market further to foreign investments.
