Amathia (Amathian: Ⰰⰿⰰⱚⰹⰰ), officially the Amathian Democratic Republic (Ⱃⰵⱂⱆⰱⰾⰹⰽⰰ Ⰴⰵⰿⱁⰽⱃⰰⱅⱐ Ⰰⰿⰰⱚⰹⰰⱀⱐ, tr. Republica Democrată Amathiană), also known as the Amathian DR (ⰓⰄ Ⰰⰿⰰⱚⰹⰰⱀⱐ, RD Amathiană;) or the ADR (ⰓⰄⰀ, RDA), is a is a sovereign nation and a federal semi-presidential directorial republic in Kylaris, located in Southeastern Euclea. Amathia is bordered to the south by the Mazdan Sea, by Piraea to the southeast, Etruria to the east, Gaullica to the northeast, Minilov to the northwest and Tengaria to the west.

The current territory of Amathia has been inhabited since prehistoric times, by the people who became known as the Amathii. The ancient Odomantian Kingdom defied the Solarian Empire for centuries, before being eventually conquered and turned into a Solarian province. The region was then heavily colonized by Solarians,being closely integrated into the empire. The provincial administration managed to survive the collapse of Solaria, with the last Solarian governor crowning himself Emperor, leading to the creation of the Empire of Arciluco, a Solarian successor state that developed into a unique Amathian entity throughout the Middle Ages. The Arcilucan realm eventually collapsed, with multiple smaller states vying for power during the Century of Discord, but external threats ended their religious conflicts and unified them into the Unio Trium Nationum, the first modern Amathian state. The confederation eventually collapsed during the violence of the Pereramonic Wars, but the Floren invasion was the spark that lit the flame of Amathian nationalism. The Telois-Tresia dynasty then took over the throne of the newly created Kingdom of Amathia, bringing stability, modernization, and sense of unity with them. The Kingdom aligned itself with Gaullica during the 19th and 20th centuries, and was eventually forced to take part in the Great War, that exposed underlying political, religious, and ethnic tensions that led to the collapse of the monarchy, invasion by Narozalic and Etrurian forces, a civil war, and the rise of the Equalist regime.

The Equalists were initially very popular despite the atrocities of the civil war, and managed to secure their position through their participation in the Solarian War, but the continued Narozalic occupation of West Arciluco and popular resentment against it quickly erroded its standing. The regime gradually became more and more repressive, taking control of the republic's parliamentary process through a single-monopoly party, increasing the size of its secret police and military. Economic mismanagement and tensions with Narozalica weakened the regime's support even further, and with the withdrawal of all foreign troops through the Arciluco Accords, the Equalist state collapsed in the short but violent Amathian Revolution, that ended with the restoration of democracy, and the beginning of a new path towards liberalization and modernization.

Today, Amathia maintains high literacy, life expectancy and education levels and is one of the most frequently visited countries in the region. Amathia is regionally and internationally renowned for its natural beauty and cultural heritage inherited from its many historical civilizations, its cuisine, sports, its beautiful music, architecture and its festivals, some of which are the largest and most prominent of their kind in Southeastern Euclea. Amathia has a relatively good economy, but it has been plagued in the last decade by a general political instability, which has threatened the stability of the Amathian economy and of the Amathian state itself.

The country is home to six regional, ethnographic groups or, officially, constituent groups, as specified in the constitution. Five of these groups belong to the family of the Western Solarian peoples, with the Argetians as the largest, followed by the Sorians, the Tirians, the Tribarians and the Malvians. The sixth group, the Preidans, are the descendants of the ancient Amathii peoples. A native of Amathia, regardless of its regional group, is identified in Estmerish as an Amathian. The region of Amathia is culturally and religiously diverse and fragmented, and as such, Amathia is well known throughout Kylaris for its long record of religious and cultural tolerance, and for the extensive rights granted to its regional groups and other ethnic and religious minorities. The endeavor of the Amathian Government for equality has however led to various internal rivalries, and to a conflict with the two largest religious bodies of the country, the Episemialist Church and the Amathian Rite Catholic Church.

Amathia is formed by six constituent republics, Argetia, Preida, Soria, Marisia, Zirnaria and Malvia, led from the central capital and the largest city of Arciluco. It has a bicameral legislature, and a six-member Presidency, composed of a member elected from each of Amathia's constituent republics. The Amathian Democratic Republic is a member of the Euclean Community, the Community of Nations, the ICD, the ITO and the GIFA.

Etymology

The exact origin of the country's name is still disputed, but it is known that the region of the present day has Amathia has been bearing this name from ancient times. Most historians and etymologists believe that the Solarian name for the region and for its people, the Amathii, was actually borrowed from the Piraeans, who were the first civilization to come into contact with these ancient people. It is unknown how the Amathii called themselves, as they left behind no written records, and as such, the Solarian name for the province resisted the test of time, being extensively used by most of the states which occupied the region after the fall of Solaria, even though most of the inhabitants of the region continued to call themselves Solarians up until the end of the Middle Ages.

The name of Amathia was officially adopted in 1730, at the height of the early Amathian nationalism, which, in the face of disbelief about the Solarianity of the Amathians, sought to distance itself from the legacy of the old empire, which had long been an object of discord among all Solarian peoples. Instead, Amathian nationalism focused on what made the Amathians unique. Their common descent from the Arcilucan realm, the Amathian languages,their religious traditions, and many others.

As such, there are multiple possible meanings of the name "Amathia". The most often used explanation is tied to ancient Piraean philosophy, where the term amathia can be described as a willing ignorance, an unwillingness to learn, a purposeful disknowledge. It is believed that the ancient Piraeans would have chosen this peculiar name for the Amathii due to their religious customs. The Amathii were an advanced civilization, more than able to build cities and beautiful monuments, but as their ancient faith preached, they themselves lived simple lives in nature, their beautiful cities lying empty as shrines to their deities. The modern Amathian national movement dealt with his meaning by molding its ignorance into their national desires, where the modern ignorance of the Amathians was described as a purposeful abandonment of those Eastern lies which simply sought to destroy the Amathian identity.

There are of course, other more likely and less philosophic meanings of the name. The "amath-" particle can be understood as meaning sand, or dust, which could have been adopted as a name for the region by the early Piraean colonists who explored Amathia's coasts. An alternative explanation of the same meaning, but with an emphasis on dust, quotes an ancient text by a Piraean historian who seems to describe an ancient volcanic eruption somewhere in Amathia, which led to large amounts of ash covering the ground, possibly explaining the historical association of the region with volcanic ash and dust.

History

Early history

The archaeological discoveries throughout the modern territory of Amathia point towards the presence of modern humans in the region from at least 40,000 years ago. Various cultures existed on these territories from the early Neolithic, with many of those developing in coastal areas. Hyndo-Euclean people eventually migrated to the area and conquered the previous inhabitants,assimilating them and forming the people known as the Preidans. The dawn of recorded human history found the Preidans organized into countless tribes, with the Tirii, the Pocurii, the Aktakoi, and the Kalinoi as the strongest. These early Preidan groups left behind no written records, so most of the information that we have on them comes from the Artiot explorers and historians of the same era.

The Artiots were the first to chart the coasts of today's Amathia, and they created various colonies and city-states on the coastline, interacting with the Preidan tribes, trading with them and sometimes coming into conflict with them. According to the Artiot historians, the Preidans, while barbarians, had a moderately advanced civilization for that period, with an organized system with priests, nobles, and kings, centered around temple-cities of stone and wooden settlements where the people lived. The Preidans and their religion had a sacred oral tradition and ideas of communion with the nature, so the Preidan tribes initially rejected contact with the Artiots and their civilization, even going so far as to consider the Artiot writing system to be blasphemous, this rejection and hostility leading to occasion conflicts, but the Preidans never tried to destroy the Artiot colonies or to remove the colonists from the coastline, so through the centuries, contacts and relations between the two peoples increased.

This is when the name of "amathia" is first thought to have originated, with the Artiots using this philosophical term it to describe the natives and their refusal to understand and to adopt the Artiot civilization. From an Artiot perspective, the natives were better than other barbarians - but they refused to evolve, willingly choosing to remain as savages. It is thought that the various Preidan tribes, which lacked a common identity, slowly adopted the name of "Amathii" after prolonged contact with their southern neighbors, which also led to slow but profound changes in the native civilization. The Amathii-Preidan tribes adopted the Artiot alphabet and many Artiot cultural customs. The distinction between the temple-cities of stone and the normal settlements was lost, replaced instead with the dava, a city-fortress that normally also contained a temple. The Artiot influences were stronger in the south and weaker in the north, but the Artiot civilization was the strongest influence that the region would see until the Solarian conquests.

Antiquity

Eventually, the tribal organization of the Amathii evolved into a system of alliances between various dava-states and those tribes that still refused to abandon their old ways. Various proto-states were born in the early Antiquity, as the more organized and advanced davae managed to impose their control over more territory. The most powerful davae where those near the mountainous regions, which had access to gold deposits and salt mines. From 700 to 600 BCE, those davae and their alliances managed to develop into small states and fully fledged kingdoms, beginning the era known as "the Age of the Kingdoms of Gold and Salt", the height of the Amathii-Preidan civilization.

Politics

Amathia is a a federal semi-presidential republic, organized by the provisions of the Constitution of the Amathian Democratic Republic and of the Six Nations' Agreement.

Constituent Republics

In terms of political structuring, Amathia is using a federal system, and it is formed by six constituent republics: the Republic of Odrisia, the Republic of Preida, the Republic of Soria, the Republic of Tiria, the Republic of Tribaria and the Republic of Pocuria. These republics are known as the Republics of Amathia. Each republic has its own state constitution, and is largely autonomous in regards to its internal organization. The federal system was created in order to better deal with the cultural and religious fragmentation of the country, and in order to facilitate the equality and the rights of all the cultural and religious groups of Amathia.

Governance

The Executive Branch

The Amathian Democratic Republic is led by a six-member body which is collectively known as the Presidency of Amathia. According to the Constitution of Amathia, each of its six constituent republics has to elect a member for the Presidency once every five years. Each member of the Presidency can be chosen for a maximum of two terms. One of the members randomly becomes the chairperson unless he or she was the incumbent chairperson at the time of the election, but the chairmanship rotates every eight months, to ensure equality. The Presidency collectively serves as the head of state of Amathia, charged with safeguarding the constitution, foreign affairs, and the proper functioning of public authority. The Chairperson of the Presidency acts as the Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces and as the Chairperson of the Supreme Council of National Defense. According to the constitution, the Presidency acts as a mediator among the state's power centers and between the state and society. The Presidency collectively nominates the prime minister after consultation with the party holding an absolute majority in Senate or, if there is no such majority, with all the parties in Senate.

Once nominated, the Prime Minister must pass a vote of confidence in the Senate.


The Legislative Branch

Foreign relations

Amathia was forced from the beginning of its Democratic Republic to deal with a stringent diplomatic isolation, that had been caused by the Equalist Republic in its final decade of existence. Consequently, the following governments placed a lot of emphasis on reintroducing the country in the international community, and on repairing many of the relations that had been damaged by the Equalist regime. The beginning of democracy and the help that was awarded to the young republic by Eastern Euclea marked a sharp shift in Amathian foreign policy. Despite the existence of some support for an Amathian entry into Samorspi, the country aligned itself with the Euclean Community, becoming an associate state and making a bid for membership, while also supporting other countries in Central and Southern Euclea on their paths for membership, like Piraea and Galenia. Amathia's traditional good relations with its former ally in Gaullica were rekindled following almost five decades of hostilities, and with the support of the Amathian communities of émigrés, similarly good relationships were developed with other prominent members of the CE. Amathia finally joined the Community in 1995, cementing it pro-CE position.

The new democratic governments however also tried to maintain its past relationships with socialist states, with varying degrees of success. Good relations were promoted with Dezevau especially with the help of the Dezevauni community in Amathia, and Amathia tried to portray itself as a mediator between Kiernia and the Community whenever possible. The country however remained notably neutral on the Miersan question. Several segments of the Amathian society as a whole continue to view Narozalica as a natural ally, and cultural similarities with the countries of Western Euclea have led to both an active movement within Amathia that would support a reorientation and an Amathian entry into Samorspi, and the government's policy to try to maintain good relations with nations like Tengaria. While political relations have remained somewhat tense, cultural collaborations with Samorspi members such as Vedmed have been notably successful, and religious relations with other Episemialist states have remained strong.

Amathia is an official member in many notable international associations, from the Euclean Community to the International Council for Democracy and the Community of Nations, and many economic associations like the Atomic Energy Commission, the Global Institute for Fiscal Affairs and the International Trade Organization. Culturally, it is also a member of the Association of Gaullophone States.
