Amandine (Principean: Amandine, pronounced /æmɛndiːn/), officially the Federal Republic of Amandine (Principean: République Fédérale d'Amandine), and also known as the Southern Marceaunian Federal Republic, is a sovereign state located in central Marceaunia Minor. It is bordered to the west by the Demontean Ocean, to the north by the Adrienne Sea, and to the northeast by the Hesperian Ocean. Amandine has an area of 3,318,987 square kilometres, divided into fourteen integral regions, and with a population of 97.8 million people. Its capital is Colette, but St. Laurine and Anne-Marie both possess larger populations. Other large cities in Amandine include Aurèle, Nouvelle Valden, Clément, Colombe, and Nouvelle Marbonne.

Amandine was originally inhabited by numerous indigenous nations since the fourth millennium BCE, prior to Auressian exploration in the 1500s. In 1510, the Imperial Port of Colette was proclaimed for the Kingdom of Vervillia by famed explorer Jean-Baptiste Amand II. While the territory was staunchly Vervillian in its identity, the Blaco-Vervillian Union's formation in 1530 sparked a debate over the formal claim to the territory, which lasted until the late 18th century. However, the Blaco-Vervillian Union greatly financially and infrastructurally benefitted the Imperial Port of Colette, which by now had grown its territorial boundaries well past the initial founding site. Between the 17th and 18th centuries, the Imperial Colony of Amandine became a vital trade and economic hub for the Auressian Power, but restrictive mercantilist policies and general sentiments of neglect progressively corroded the previously strong relationship between the territory and the motherland. Already feeling forgotten by the Union, Amandine was formally gifted to the Blaykish Monarchy as a result of the War of Tyrnican Succession (1785) without any local representation in the matter; the Blaco-Vervillian Union's dissolution from the war entirely severed Amandine's governmental connection to Vervillia, worsening the situation even further against the Blaykish Monarchy.

Independence was violently achieved in 1807, with the Republic of Amandine, a confederal representative republic, taking control of the territory and beyond. In 1819, the Confederation of Southern Marceaunia replaced the Republic's government, eventually leading to the First Continental War. During the conflict, the Constitution of 1835 was ratified, establishing the Federal Republic of Amandine. Since then, the country has maintained the same governmental structure as a semi-presidential democratic republic. While Amandine was intertwined in intercontinental affairs for the majority of its history, the nation became an global power from the Great War in 1908 onwards.

Amandine is a federal semi-presidential constitutional republic. It is a founding member of the Assembly of Marceaunian States (AMS) and is involved in numerous bilateral economic and diplomatic agreements with foreign governments around the world. Amandine has cultural, ideological, and eocnomic spheres of influence (SOI) around the continent of Marceaunia Minor, as well as island nations and territories surrounding the region. It has a high military expenditure which is primarily allocated to the Amand Navy and Aviation Force. The nation is a member of a other intergovernmental organizations dedicated to the furthering of global security and security. Even though Amandine is not nuclear weapons state, the national government has expressed interest in introducing a program alongside its already-equipped allies.

Amandine is a developed country with the world's third largest economy by nominal GDP ($2.2 trillion) and the largest by purchasing power parity ($4.15 trillion). It is a high-income mixed economy that is one of the world's largest breadbaskets, with a focus on forestry, manufacturing (including technology manufacturing), and service among other industries. Amandine has a very high Human Development Index (HDI) rating of 0.822, with concerning income disparity rankings. Amandine is a staunch protector of civil rights and conducts significant work towards the achievement of a high quality of life, both domestically and abroad. Additionally, the nation is well-regarded in terms of its education and economic freedoms.

Etymology

The name Amandine was first referred to early 1518, where the Vervillian colonial territory extending beyond the Imperial Port of Colette was titled. The name originates from the famed explorer Jean-Baptiste Amand II. Amand, a wealthy cartographer, was contracted by the Vervillian Crown to survey the New World for any viable natural bays or ports. While his birthplace is contested between Vervillia and Blayk, Amand's proclamation of the Imperial Port of Colette has enshrined him as the founder of modern Amandine and Marceaunian society, as a whole.

The Vervillian turned Blaykish territory was generally titled "Vervillian Marceaunia," with Amandine being relegated to obscurity. However, as anti-Blaykish sentiment rose throughout the late 18th centuries, Amandine as a title rose in popularity. During the Flavien Revolution (1796-1797), rebels' flags often had the word "AMANDINE" painted or sewn. By the National Assembly's declaration of an independent state in 1806, the Republic of Amandine was unanimously chosen to show solidarity with their origins and Vervillian superiority over the Blaykish government.
