Carrelie, officially the Carrelian Confederation, is a country in Europe. It borders the English Channel and the North Sea in the west and the Baltic Sea in the east. It is bordered by the Netherlands, Luxembourg and France to the west; Germany, Czechia and Slovakia to the south; Poland to the southeast and Lithuania and Waisnor to the east.

Various tribes have inhabited the area now known as Carrelie since antiquity. The first recorded tribe to have inhabited the area is the Caisecawer, a direct ancestor of the modern Andlic people. The region was first united in the 970s, when Petty King Gosanric of Kuris conquered the kingdoms neighbouring his domain, declaring himself High King. This kingdom collapsed after the death of Covrin the Unfortunate, only to be restored 23 years later by Count Edward Claes of Haufenburg in 1127. This line would later form the empire under Frederick the Victorious and stretch Carrelie to its current borders.

Today, Carrelie is a semiconstitutional federal elective monarchy. It is comprised of 16 autonomous nations, including 1 city-state and 1 autonomous province. These are further divided into administrative divisions, such as Achanor's counties and Douria's lordships. Each of these nations are led by their own head of state and head of government, with their own legislature. However, these legislatures all report to the Councils of Governance in Mont-Sanguine.

Etymology

Carrelie's English name comes from the word for the region in old Dentrician, Kërelï. During the 12th century, this word was adopted by the Kings of Haufenburg-Kause as Karelia, which would later become Karelie. Previously, Carelie was most often used to refer to the country in English, though after 1986 this spelling was phased out in favour as Carrelie.
