Batengdei, also referred to as the People's Republic of Batengdei, is a small socialist nation in the northern region of Marenesia. The country name is derived from their origin as a lost extension of the Yellow Empire, which developed into its own kingdom with the same name. The citizens of Batengdei are a mixture of ethnic groups varying by geography. Cultural and religious practices range from traditional animism to Salvian Catholicism.

Geography

Batengdei is naturally hilly, with larger hills and mountainous regions toward the southern Agrillian Highlands. The lowlands of Batengdei often see rivers flowing through them, and are often the location of major population centers. The southern Agrillian Highlands consist of vast arid and semi-arid climates due to low rainfall. Due to the relative inconsistency of water availability, much of the habited regions of Batengdei are clustered along rivers, lakes, and coastal areas.

The northernmost peninsula of Bulgenstaz is a sprawling marsh. The region has few tall trees aside from daemotong, which produce a toxic, but powerful sap. While the marshlands have relatively low amounts of inhabitants, the surrounding region is rich with coastal settlements that thrive off the abundant natural resources of the Tonle Baitang region.

Regions

Khett

Each Khett acts as a regional governing body; there are eight in total in Batengdei, and one federal city. Batengdeian Khett have varying levels of sovereignty such as Khsaandei and Tonle Baitang. These regions also have a local capital, which must be a city governed by the Okrug. All Okrugs have a small 50 member group of elected officials from any party.

Khett Population Capitol Description
Khaymerdei WIP Chrak Banleak Khaymerdei is the region around the Batengdeian capitol, Khenkhourt, (though has no jurisdiction over it). Khaymerdei is among the most ethnically mixed Khett in Batendei, with most immigrants settling within the coastal region surrounding Banleak Bay. This creates many small towns with large ethnic contrast from most of Bulgenstaz.
Bateng Gioro WIP Akear Aimuri Bateng Gioro is a province containing much of the Bateng Huang. It is located in the hilly region below the eastern coastline.

Culture

Cultural practices have a mixture of ancient Marenei traditions and practices adopted from the Yellow Empire and Salvia. It's cultural institutions

The coastal region sees much of the inhabitants of Batengdei and is, for similar reasons, the most culturally homogenous. Much of the coastal region of Batengdei is ethnically Marehmer

In the jungle communities, cultural practices vary heavily from village to village. Oftentimes they are largely based on the larger regional cities.

A large Bulgenstazi cultural icon is the jaguar. It has been seen, across city-states, as a symbol of strength and skill. Throughout Bulgenstazi culture, the jaguar is used as a symbol of national pride. Notable examples of its usage is the name of the original Bateng Rouge Party, which was the "Rising Jaguar Party." The Jaguar is also recognized as the national animal of Batengei. It is claimed King Jeruman of Khaokhet rode a chariot of jaguars in the 12th century in the battle against Salvia.

Political Structure

The Bulgenstazi political structure consists of different structures holding various jurisdictions over each other. Among the most important are the Batengdeian People's Grand Parliament, the Communist Advisor's Council, the Prime Minister, and the Batengdeian People's Supreme Court. Among the Khett are separate political structures which act similarly to the People's Grand Parliament, but enact policy on a regional level.

People's Grand Parliament

Communist Advisor's Council

The Communist Advisor's Council is a senate-like assembly who may overrule proposals from the People's Grand Parliament and the Prime Minister. Members are appointed by the Prime Minister and must be affirmed by the People's Grand Parliament. Members serve for up to 15 years, though they can be forcibly removed by a supermajority in the People's Grand Parliament.

The council serves primarily to confirm proposals from the PGP and as the force of balance between the PGP and the Prime Minister. It may not draft legislation but can propose revisions for drafts in the PGP.

Prime Minister

People's Supreme Court

The People's Supreme Court is the highest court in Batengdei. It rules on issues with law-changing importance and is often a source of political change. The court has appointed members, with 15 judges at any time, who are appointed for life or until they resign. All members are appointed by the Prime Minister but can be overridden by a supermajority "no confidence" vote by the People's Grand Parliament or the Communist Advisor's Council.
