Caselania, officially the Republic of Caselania (Caselanian: Rèspublique di Caselania), is a sovereign state and country in Collandris. It is bordered by the state of Cerdagne to the north, Xentherida and Montedria to the south, and Syrixia through a maritime border and via the Pont dile Amitié Caselanique-Soleilerique in the east. A unitary parliamentary republic, it is the largest state on the continent, with a land area of (TBA) and a population of over 98 million people. The largest city is Grande Hauvre, and also the capital of the country.
The Casellans inhabited most of western Caselania during antiquity, being the southernmost tribes of Cerdagne. Resisting to be part of their nation-state, the Casellans founded their own through the foundation of the Duchy of Pilanura in 1011, expanding rapidly to take control of other Casellan towns and engaging a war with the Cerdagnians to fully achieve control of their territory. Trade with the Gotic people from nearby Gothis fueled the economy of Pilanura, and after annexing all Caselan villages and small city-states, Pilanura became the Kingdom of Caselania in 1175 under Anthony I, on his Unity Proclamation.
Throughout the Middle Ages, Caselania's own culture and language flourished. The House of Litasanno took over during the 17th century, becoming the primary dynasty until the demise of the monarchy in 1952. During this era, Caselania invaded and annexed the region of Montedria across the Lac di Collandrique, controlling the entirety of central Collandris. The dynasty's reputation for being ruthless and extensively autocratic also became increasily frequent for the entirety of Caselania's existence.
At the beginning of the 20th century, Caselanian republicanism was on its slow rise, dissatisfaction and resentment against the royal family grew, but these did not concern the last ruler, which was Francesca III. Her rule was the most authoritarian- post-Revolution Caselanian historians scaled her rule in comparison to her ancestors to be at the "worst"; and her era was marked by the first iteration of the book burnings that destroyed academic material and other literary pieces that were targeted against the monarchy. Caselania also entered the Fascist Wars in the side of the Fascists, and saw its greatest humiliation after the faction lost in 1951. Fueled by these losses and the already growing dissatisfaction and war-worn citizenry, the Caselanian Revolution began, and overthrew the queen a year later, ending a long era of autocracy.
The Constitution of Caselania then came to force in 1952, beginning the First Caselanian Republic under the rule of Jacques-Émile di Milanique as the president, and Riliane di Rochefort as his prime minister. The first years of the country was filled with extensive reforms, in particular concentrating over agrarian reforms in the rustic fringes of the country, government-funded welfare for the victims of the former regime, decentralisation of the Caselanian government, extensive economic reforms, and so on.
The name Caselania comes from the Casellans, in which in turn is derived from the Umbrial word casella. The term was to describe a land of small farms, in which the early Casellans saw a source of food, and in a way, the primary resource for commerce.
