Cavunia (Kunak: Kabunia), formally known as the Republic of Cavunia (Kunak: Respublïka'sı Kabunyý) is a sovereign state in the central Coius, bordering Zorasan to the west and north, Dezevau to the northeast and Yi to the south. With an area of 1,279,308 km², Cavunia is 20th - 25th biggest country in Kylaris. It's mostly a mountainous country, with over 80-90% of the area above 300 metres.

The present day Cavunia was first settled in around the 4th century by various tribes that would practice nomadic lifestyle. First permament settlement appeared in the 11th century, when the traders from Dezevau created a trade hub alogside some river. This in turn allowed some religions to spread into Cavunia. Up until the late 17th century, various tribes fought over the control of the region, warring and raiding each other and neighbouring states. In 1689, chief of the Kunak tribe, Gölay Gölay, conquered most of the modern Cavunian territory and proclaimed himself the only leader of the newly founded federation, abandoning semi-nomadic government. Later, in the 19th century, Cavunia became a tributary state of some empire and was under foreign governance up until the Great War, though, due to low population density and harsh climate, maintained a fair level of autonomy. After the Great War various clans desired to control the reborn Cavunian nation, resulting in a civili war that lasted until 1960, when the Unity Law was signed, proclaiming Cavunia as a unitary republic rather than a federation, with every ethnic group receiving equal rights.

Cavunia is a presidential republic, where the president wields the most power. Current leader, Ari Maltıqa is the head of the state since 2003. The country is divided into 11 banirai and 3 töq (cities). The nation possesses a minor role in the world's politics and it has mostly neutral stance towards international incidents and issues. It's a part of Community of Nations, International Trade Organisation and International Forum for Developing States. It's a rapidly growing economy with a major industries being natural gas extraction, mining (especially iron, copper and salt), metallurgy and agriculture.

With a population of 27,522,309, Cavunia is ranked 25th - 30th in Kylaris. It's one of the least dense country in the world, with most of the population inhabiting north eastern areas, spread along Eagle River. Nearly 4 million resides in the aglomeration of Aq'Hort. Dominant ethnic group is Kunak, with significant Balrik, Ibeki, Sogdhyn and Udde minorities as well. Though most people describe themselves as irreligious, Badi is a traditional religion that still prevailed throghout the country.

Etymology

The modern term Cavunia was first used by Dezevauani traders, referring loosely to people inhabiting the area. It originally meant "wanderers" (Kunak: kabunyý) and was most probably used to distinguish the nomadic tribes that lived south of the Lake Bakhtegan from settled traders. Later, under the conquest of Gölay Gölay, the name gained a broader use, as the chief called the newly founded confederation "Cavunian Republic", meaning literally republic of the wanderers. The choice was dictated by the unstable loyalty of non-Kunak tribes that supported Gölay Gölay as long as they were granted pirivilages. It also was meant to attract other still independent nomadic tribes to join the confederation.

During the 18th and 19th century the name Cavunia became a conventional name for the region itself, however, internally, a simple term "confederation" (Kunak: ıteqşem, literally together) was used more commonly. Following a foreign rule and the rise of nationalism within the country, several clans created the Great Circle and promoted the creation of independent nation known as Cavunia.

After the Great War rivalries between ethnic groups and the overtaking of power by Kunak people the term Cavunia became a call for equality and a symbol of unity. In 1960, when the Unity Law was signed, it was stated in the Constitution of the Republic of Cavunia that the republic of Cavunia has only one name and that name is to be used by every citizen, in every place and on every day in Cavunia. Internationally, the authorities have asked to alter any exisiting names of the country to Cavunia and to be it the only official name of the republic.
