The Erishlands (Erish: Xersclåndo [ˈʢæʢːʃt̠ˌlɑn̪ːd̪ᵿ]), officially the Erish Confederation (Erish: Xerscbondoð [ˈʢæʢːʃt̠ˌβ̞ɑn̪ːd̪ᵿɬ]), is a country in northern Belisaria. It is bordered by Ottonia to the east, the Boreios Sea to the north, and the Nordic Sea to the west. Its capital city is Forgborg.

The Erishlands was first inhabited by Celtic and Nordic peoples known as the Corvaik but became dominated by the Erish following the arrival of the Allamunnic tribes during the fifth century. After the Ottonian Empire took hold of the region in the 800s, the religiously tolerant policies of Magnus and those following him contributed to Christianity failing to take root in the country. During the waning days of the Ottonian Empire, Saishland, Winchland and Yorshland began to align themselves, forming the Erish Confederation with the Treaty of the Three Lands in 1256. Decades later, disputes over tribal supremacy resulted in the crowning of Lousne I of the House of Hume as Queen in 1297. After her death in 1321, a succession crisis sparked the First Civil War, ending in the establishment of the principle that the Queen reigned as a moderating force, whilst a separate King was the practical political leader. Over the coming centuries, the power of the Erish king expanded, as did the territory of what became known as the Erish Realm.

In 1636, the Second Civil War erupted over attempts of certain Lands to break away. After six years of bloody conflict, King Athoch II cemented his status as the unquestioned political leader of the Erishlands, with the Queen no more than a symbol, and cemented a strong central government in Forgborg. The tensions which facilitated the war, however, lingered, slowly simmering until they boiled over in the early 1800s. Civil war erupted for a third time in 1810 after King Aulv II attempted to suppress a rebellion in Scaeppe, ending in 1812 with the Queen forcing the King to abdicate. The ensuing Constitution of 1812 established a parliamentary constitutional monarchy with a tricameral parliament called the Federal Diet. After a period of authoritarian governance during the 1870s, a movement began to emerge between social liberals and conservative socialists calling for "Republicanization" (Fulcssteuretong). During the early 1900s, this movement culminated in the 1916 constitutional revisions, which transferred the powers of the Queen to a Federal Presidium and declared the Erishlands a "crowned republic" (gereicðoð Fulcssteur).

The Erish political system is a federal crowned republic. The monarch, currently Queen Lousne III, functions as head of state without any constitutional political powers; her former powers are exercised by a collective presidency called the Federal Presidium. The duties of head of government are carried by the Federal Minister, currently Xairic Gairalcssun as of 2021, who is responsible to the Federal Convention, a semi-independent house of the tricameral Federal Diet. The modern economy is highly developed, upholds an extensive welfare system, and ranks highly for economic mobility and income equality.


The Erishlands is a federal semi-presidential directorial "crowned republic" which operates within the framework of the 1812 constitution. Within the political system, the Queen, currently Lousne III, is head of state and the Federal Minister, currently Xairic Gairalcson, is head of government. It is considered to be one of the oldest democracies of the modern world and has developed a "Tocgtreck" ("tug of war") style of democracy focused around building coalitions on political and social issues. In the modern day, it is considered to be one of the most developed democracies in the world.


The Constitution of the Erish Federation (Grouðlogo Xerscbondeb) first adopted in 1813 is the legal foundation of the modern Erish state. Since the Republicanization movement of the late 1800s and early 1900s culminated in the 1912 amendments to the constitution, the Erishlands have officially been defined as a gereicðoð Fulcssteur ("crowned republic"). Although the Queen (Deiso) is head of state, she lacks any formal political powers; her only involvement in the political process is opening the annual session of the Federal Diet, swearing in the Federal Presidium before the Diet, and accrediting and receiving ambassadors at the direction of the Federal Minister. Under the system of the separation and interdependence of powers, power is split across four major institutions at the federal level: the tricameral Federal Diet (legislative), the Federal Government (executive), the Federal Presidium (moderative), and the Federal Constitutional Court (judicial).

The official language of the Erishlands is Erish, a West Germanic language that is mostly closely related to languages like Anglish or German, but which has undergone significant convergence with the Nordic languages as a consequence of extensive contact with them. There is some limited degree of mutual intelligibility between Erish and those languages, but not to the same extent as between the Nordic languages, especially in speech. Recognized minority languages in Erishland include Anglish and Norsk
