The Grand Duchy of Aziallis is a small independent island nation close to the coast of Parthonia. It is a peaceful nation, which has been democratic since 1917, when the first constitution was drafted and brought into force.

Though the nation still maintains a monarchy, it is a Federated Constitutional Monarchy, where the powers of the monarchy are limited and regulated by the Constitution. The Ruling Monarch is the defacto Head of the State but the democratically elected Prime Minister is the Head of the Government. The nation also had a Preator but a 2016 Constitutional Amendment abolished the political position.

The 2016 Census estimated the population of Aziallis to be roughly 6 million people and the annual growth rate is nearly 2%.

The nation is divided into 9 provinces, based on the historic divisions of the 9 duchies which existed in the Middle Ages. The people of the 9 provinces have varied cultures and traditions which are very unique to Aziallis. The nation is host to several historic cities like Seruf, Orine, Weilon, Rotafk, Neosk and Aarozo which are also capitals of the present day Provinces.

The Nation is surrounded by tall mountain peaks on two sides and a hot deserified stretch of land on one side. Because of difficult terrain, the duchies remained isolated from the rest of the world for a long time and is the reason for the unique traditions, cultures and religions on the island. Though, few regions do share some cultural similarities with nations like Bendan and the Hofflandian Union due to brief periods of partial colonization and co-administration.

The nation also shares a close history with neighbouring nations like Albithica, Hofflandian Union and Ghijuko, being historic trading partners and the four nations being primarily involved in the Slavers Wars.

Provinces

Assentus

The Capital city is Turnigh

The Province of Assentus was historically known as the Duchy of Seruf and was ruled by the Royal Aziridan Family till 1673 and was later taken over by the Azilaan Royal Family in in 1692. The Azillan Family was born out of the Aziridan Family, when the heir of the Aziridan family, Prince Massone Aziridan eloped with his lover Prince Baxon Zilyasis in 1672. Their adopted daughter, Princess Clamentine Azillan took over the throne of the United Duchies of Seruf and Rotafk, which she unified in 1692, before ascending the throne.

During the Slavers War, Assentus (as The Grand Duchy of Seruf) was one of the four Duchies that were a part of the Lower Faction, which opposed "Horrible" King Ourosenga and supported the Albithican and Hofflandian side.

The Province has been named after the Arnilf term "ajjhentem" meaning stepping down because the monarchy decided to step down in this region during the revolution for Democracy.

Assentus is densely populated with reference to Aziallis with the Seruf constituency being the third most densely populated in Aziallis. It receives High rainfall during the monsoon and has very fertile land, owing to two major rives River Augus and Seranon River flowing through the Province. This makes the Province agriculturally viable.

This Province is also one of the major hubs of businesses in Aziallis.

Belverade

Provincial Flag of Belverade (Official Aspect Ratio: 3 by 2)

The Capital city is Aarozo

The Province of Belverade was historically called the Grand Duchy of Aarozo. Till before the 1500s, the entire region of Asertavi (present day Belverade and Eyenkasa) made up the Grand Duchy of Aarozo. The coming of the Hofflandian merchants lead to the region of Nusasertavi (lower Asertavi or Eyenkasa) slipping out of the hands of the Royal family of Aarozo and becoming a Hofflandian colony. After the end of Hofflandian rule, several attempts of unification by the Grand Duchy of Aarozo failed as Nusasertavi became an independent entity.

The Grand Duchy of Aarozo was ruled by the Aaroo Royal Family till 1833. In 1833, Duke Myanon Daggier Aaroo formaalised ties with the Duchy of Weilon and supported the notion of a unified "Aserializ". The Duke willingly signed the Unification Accord in September 1833. After unification, they were one of the few regions which were granted semi-autonomy and hence the Aaroo Royal Family was restored to power with the Duke becoming Head of Government. Aarozo had the right to opt out of Ourosegai Laws and functioned in a semi democratic manner with a third of the court room ministers being taken by popular vote.

In 1912, Duchess Bruvina Nedaggier Aaroo openly accepted the popular democratic movement and stepped down willingly. The Democratic Transition and Re-Unification Accord was signed by the Duchess on 30th August 1915, creating the Province of Belverade.

During the Slavers Wars, Belverade (as the Duchy of Aarozo) was one of the four Regions in the Lower Faction along with Eyenkasa, Seruf and Rotafk, which opposed "Horrible" King Ourosenga and supported the Albithican and Hofflandian side.

The Province of Belverade has the River Belvaroos, the river from which the Province derives its name, flowing through it, which makes the land very fertile. This led to increased migration to Belverade and is now the third most densely populated Province of Aziallis after Kernintel and Assentus. The land is agriculturally viable and Belverade is well known for it's varieties of Pulse grains, of which it has been a historic exporter.

The land also has one of the most important Azillian coal mine- the Norreng Coal Mine, located in the North Eastern end of the Province, near the Cavir coast.

The Capital city is Terevanka

The Province of Hivevka was historically known as the Duchy of Hevik and was ruled by the Hiviv Royal Family till 1673. The royal family was massacred by King Kernin Ourosenga as he marched into Hevik and took over control of the region. King Myorn Jor Hiviv was publicly executed and the Duchy of Hevik was declared a part of Oureskagve. The Duchy would not be freed completely from Ourosenga rule until 1832, when the Upper Faction looses to the Lower Faction, which leads to Oureskagve breaking apart into its constituent duchies.

During the Slavers Wars, the Duchy of Hevik was under Ourosenga rule and hence was a part of the Upper Faction, which fought on the side of the "Horrible" King Ourosenga. It was freed by the Seruvian Army on 23rd February, 1832 and the day is celebrated as Freedom Day (dvyes Yosthukon) in Hivevka.

After freedom from Oureskagve, Hivevka was ruled by the newly Crowed Azillan Family as a Crown Dependency (under the Slagetlam Accord) as it was believed that no heir to the Hevik throne had survived and Seruf had the right to govern the territory it freed.

The Province is named after Gern Mons Hiviv (and the Hiviv family, in general), a distant heir of the Hiviv Royal Family as he lead the revolution for democracy in the region. Gern Mons Hiviv was a prominent member of the Drafting Committee for the Azillian National Constitution. He was also appointed as the first Chief Minister of the Province of Hivevka.

The Province of Hivevka is surrounded by Torran mountain ranges towards the coast and Glurul mountain ranges towards the mainland, making it the most physically isolated from the rest of the union. The Mountain ranges that surround Hivevka cause the rain carrying winds to disperse around them and make the Province a dry desert. The Wokansien Desert is situated in Hivevka, making it very difficult to live in the region and hence the Province is the least populated and the most sparsely populated Province in Aziallis.

Hivevka is the most mineral rich Province in Aziallis, with 83% of the total Thorium, 91% of the total Silica and 78% of the total exported Rare earth metals coming from the Province. It also hosts several coal mines. Two important Petroleum rigs are located in Yusaan and one is loacted off the coast of Kagiki, called Hiv High (within Azillian territorial waters)

The flag of the Province of Hivevka is a hortizontal Tri colour with three equal bands along with a separate vertical tricolour of the Azillian National Colours (Red, gold and blue) present on the hoist side. The three colours of the flag represent the Mountain ranges that surround the province, the Wokansien desert and the mineral wealth of the Province of Hivevka.

Kernintel

The Capital city is Orine

The Province of Kernintel was historically known as the "Grand Duchy of Orine" and was ruled by the Orus Royal Family till 1917, when they were forced to step down from the Throne and join the Union by the Liberation and Democratisation Front of Orine. The Province has been named after Kernitassilus, the Bauxite rich region in the province that makes up for nearly 45% of the Provincial GDP. But many say that it might be named after Rubellinus Kerinintessa, the leader of the front which brought democracy in the region and negotiated the entry of the the Duchy into the Union.

In 1722, the Marriage of Sullisanse dyuManine Oruni of Orine and Shveroine Massebeltum Welwogne of Weilon led to the high lands of Bessamonteva being seeded to the Duchy of Weilon which was termed as the Zensi Union and Agreement, as the marriage took place in the Cathedral of Zensi, on the border of the two Duchies. It is now a popular tourist attraction.

During the Slavers War, Orine was the only Duchy out of the 9, that remained completely neutral during the initial phase of the conflict due to close ties with the neighboring Duchy of Oureskagve and Seirofkase (The Duchy of Seruf and Rotafk). The Royal Monarch closed all borders with any of the neighboring duchies. But during the war, it was attacked and invaded by Oureskagve and Noiskaregoinsav (a portion of the great plains) was captured by the Orusengee forces. In 1832, the land was liberated but was controlled by the Grand Duchy of Seruf and Rotafk under the Liberation Treaty of December 1832. In 1917, after the implementation of the Constitution of 1917, the Noiskaregoinsav was allocated to the Province of Ferninsorl, in the spirit of the Liberation Treaty of December 1832. Till this day provincial government claims the land as rightfully belonging to Kernintel.

Kernintel is the most densely populated Province in Aziallis mostly attributed by the fact that is has vast fertile plains, fed by the two rivers- Weimensk (locally called Kerenaskiva) and Megleska (locally known as Yarnizga). They are among the most fertile lands that Aziallis has and covers up for 40% of the Azillian food demand and 15% of the Azillian fresh water demand.

The Flag of the Province of Kernintel is the simplest and has been in use since the last 3 centuries without any change. It is the the Gold Cross. It has a diagonal to diagonal Gold cross across the field and uses Royal Blue and Red as the colours on the field. It is said to have been made by Duke Menajes Oruga as a mark of resistance against the Bendani forces.

The Azillian flag was designed by Kremani Queska, n Royal artisan who used the three colours of the flag of the Duchy of Orine which are now the National colours of Aziallis.

The Capital city is Neosk

The Province of Trinoska is located on the east coast bordering Assentus to the South and Hivevka to the North. It was formerly called The Duchy of Neosk and was ruled by the Neaan Royal Family till the beginning of the Orusenga War. During the Orusenga War (Slavers War) the Duchy of Neosk was taken over by forces from Weilon and Noesk was forced into the Upper faction. After the liberation of Neosk from Oursenga rule, it became a puppet state of Seruf and Rotafk until it signed the Instrument of Ascension to join the Democratic Azillian Union (The Grand Duchy of Aziallis)

The Province is named after the Triminosey region which is a vast expanse of semi arid land which covers two-thirds of the province. Trimino literally means "not wet" or "dry" indicating the hot climate and the infertile soil present here.

Triminoska is the province where the most number of industries set their manufacturing plants given the flat land and availablity of reseouces as well as a strong transport backbone in the province. Mining is also an important aspect of the Province with an ambundance of Rare earth metals, coal and precious metals and stones available in the Triminosey


Legislatures

Federal Level

At the Federal Level, there are three houses via which Bills have to be passed to be turned into a law. The 1917 Constitution lays down the powers and ambit of each house. The National Federal Laws supersedes all State and County Laws. The National Federal List written in the Constitution provides the list of issues or topics which can be dealt on a Federal Level.

The House of Representatives

This House is the most powerful of all Houses. It is the only House that has the power to write and draft a Federal National Bill. This is the only House on the Federal Level where a Bill can initially be presented for discussion.

This house has 455 elected representatives, each representing a constituency. Each member of this House has one vote and Federal National Bills are voted upon by a simple majority, meaning, a Federal National Bill must get at least 229 votes to pass this House.

This House has a Royal Speaker and two Royal Scribes, who control the flow of debate in the House. They are appointed by the Ruling Monarch and have not vote in the House. Their job is to control and record the debate and it's flow in the House.

The Prime Minister and the Council of Ministers are a part of this House.

(It is the Federal National Election that determines who would become the Prime Minister. If a Party or Coalition of Parties manages to get 51% of the total votes, the Party or Coalition forms the Government)

To be eligible for Federal National Elections, a person must have at least a bachelor's degree in their respective field.

The House of Federated Provinces

This House consists of 81 people who are elected by the House of Provincial Commons of each Province. Each House of Provincial Commons from each of the 9 Provinces elect 9 people into the House of Federated Provinces.

This House also has a Royal Speaker and two Royal Scribes, who control the flow of debate in the House. They are appointed by the Ruling Monarch and have not vote in the House. Their job is to control and record the debate and it's flow in the House.

This House can only review drafts and Federal National Bills proposed by the House of Representatives. And the bill must get at least 42 votes to pass the house. The House can send back a Bill to the House of Representatives at most two times. If the House of Representatives does not change any part of the Bill, after two chances, a Joint Dyb-House Session is called and the decision of the Session is binding.

If this House fails to either successfully pass or fail a Bill within fifteen days, the House of Representatives can consider it passed by this House. Hence, this House has to be very active in decision making.

To be eligible to get elected into this house, one must be at least 30 years old and must have at least a Master degree in their respective field.

The House of Nobility

A Federal National Bill is presented to this House for a vote only if it is related to Constitutional Amendments. It consists of 100 Nobles and the Monarch, making it a House of 101 people, each having a single vote.

All the Nobles are appointed to this House by the Royal Monarch, with the consultation of the Prime Minister. The Nobles are appointed for a period of 5 years and their term ends with the end of the Prime Minister's term. The New Prime Minister then helps the Ruling Monarch to appoint the Nobles. The Prime Minister can only suggest the names for the House, but the final say lies in the hands of the Monarch.

The Nobles must have at least a Bachelors' degree in order to be eligible for being a member of this House.

On any other Federal National Bill that is not a Constitutional Amendment, the opinion of this House is not binding. They cannot conduct a Constitutional Vote (a binding vote that counts) on Non-Amendment Bills. The House may request the House of Representatives to reconsider the Bill once. But if the Bill is returned without any changes to this House, the Royal Monarch has to sign it and officially turn the Bill into Law.

For Bills that are Constitution Amendments, this House must pass it by a simple majority. This means that, a Constitutional Amendment must get at least 52 votes in this House to officially amend the Constitution.

This House also has a Royal Speaker and two Royal Scribes, who control the flow of debate in the House. They are appointed by the Ruling Monarch and have not vote in the House. Their job is to control and record the debate and it's flow in the House.

Provincial Level

At the Provincial Level, the !917 Constitution established two Houses via which State Bills have to pass to be turned into Province Specific Laws. The 1917 Constitution lays down the detailed powers and ambit of each House.

But, by 1960s it was largely felt, by both the Central and State Governments that Provincial Legislatures should be Unicameral and in 1965, the Union Legislature passed the Unicameral Provincial Legislature Amendment Act of 1965 which abolished the Second House of the Provincial Legislature- The House of Sub Federated Counties- a house which shared powers similar to the Central House of Federated Provinces. The Act allowed the House to complete it's last term till 1967 and then the House was dissolved.

Hence, at the Provincial Level, there is just one House that makes State Legislatures and the Amended State List defines the areas which the Provincial Legislature can make Laws on.

In case a Province Specific Law goes against a national law, it can be reversed by a Joint Federal-Province Law Committee (FPLC).

The House of Provincial Commons

The House of Provincial Commons is the Provincial equivalent of the House of Representatives. Each Province has a different number of seats, depending upon the number of Constituencies in the Province. The Body is elected directly by the people. The Government at Provincial level is formed by the Party or Coalition that gets more than 51% of the votes. The Head of the Government at Provincial Level is call the Chief Minister of Province and has his powers written in the constitution. The Provincial Cabinet also sits in the House.

County Level

At the County level there is one House via which County Bills have to pass to be turned into County Specific Laws. The 1917 Constitution lays down the detailed powers and ambit of the House. In case a County Specific Law goes against a Province Specific Law, it can be reversed by a Joint Province- County Law Committee (PCLC).

The House of Constituency Representatives

This House has 25 seats and is made up of the winner of the election of each of the 25 sub-constituencies in every county. They are directly elected by the people and the Head of the government at this level is called the Governor.

There are very few issues over which the County can have specific Laws and they can be superseded by both Provincial and Federal Laws.

The 25 members together appoint the Constituency Public Service and Law Enforcement Units (CPSLEUs) for each of the 5 Constituencies.
