(This is very soon going to be changed) Esonice (Esonian: Esonya) offically the Serene Kingdom of Esonice (Esonian: ---) is an island nation located in Western Alharu part of the Esonian archipelago, surrounded by the Tiauhai Sea. The nation is also close to the giant Paran desert on mainland Alharu. Esonice does not have any immediate borders on land, but on its maritime borders its neighbours are the Andallan protectorate state of Giokto to the south, the Commonwealth of Andalla to the west, and island republics of Sushindo and Vikeda in the east. Esonice has a total of 257 islands in its territories; in total covering approximately 354,835km2 with a population density of less than 100 people per square kilometre. Its 3 main islands are the islands of Hirosho, Lisharishi and Mibiveshi. Other noticeable islands include Katomei, Shimishi, Zumaishi, Korado, Nanshi and Makoshi. Esonice's geographic terrain is mixed, ranging from the fertile sub-tropics in the eastern regions, to a semi-arid coastline surrounded by a lush tropical savannah in the north-western region - with both the eastern and western portions of the Hirosho island being separated, to an extent, by the Emisan mountain range. The islands are also known as large producers of unique varieties of tea and chocolate that can only be found on them. Various gemstones can also be found on the islands, such as emeralds, tiger eye and many different quartz such as rose quartz, including rarer gems such as hauyne and kornerupine created due to the high volcanic activity present in Esonice. Many pearls can also be found present on the Esonian coasts and much of the Esonian archipelago.
Esonice is classified as a high income developed nation, home to a population of 34,235,478 inhabitants, with its most populous city being Maimedo (Esonian: 橙京) with a population of 3,824,354 which also serves as the national capital, financial and cultural centre. Following the years after the Thalassan war, Esonice enjoyed an economic boom which lasted from the 1960s to the 1990s. Today Esonian citizens enjoy a high standard of living, alongside a free universal healthcare system, high standards of education, and economic freedom. Esonice has a vibrant cultural heritage, spanning from Esonice's renowned artistic scene, its cuisine, mythology, literature, music and popular culture in media, animation and gaming. Internationally, Esonice is an observer state to the League of Alharu and Aurelian Native Nations (otherwise known as LAANN), and the Entente of Oriental States (EOS). Esonice is also the current general secretary nation for the Group of Island Nations (GIN) and a member state of the Argic-Thalassan-Alharun Regional Association (otherwise known as ATARA).

--- . A large government program has been put in place, converting many important areas of wildlife into nature reserves during the 80s and 90s in an attempt to end destruction of wildlife and illegal activities such as hunting. Also, many institutions have been formed to help endangered species on the islands. Many local authorities also started their own programs and regulations in an attempt to limit environmental damage.

Esonice has a population of approximately 33,753,193, majority of which are nationals
According to the 2020 population census, 75.3% of Esonian citizens adhere to the indigenous Ari-kokai faith, otherwise known as Arikaism. About 21.5% of Esonians identify themselves as atheist or agnostic. It is often hard to find a precise percentage of Arikaist believers as it is decentralised faith with no holy book or religious figurehead. Arikaism is also closely interconnected with Esonice's cultural heritage, meaning that even though some Esonians identify as irreligious, they still may participate in many Arikai rituals, temple visits, celebrations, festivities as adherence to cultural traditions remains high. A significant Buddhist community also exists in Esonice, brought in by Huang merchants and migrants that came to Esonice throughout history and often influenced the culture of Esonice.
Ever since the introduction of Christianity to Esonice during the 17th century, many missionaries from places such as Tagmatium and Iverica came to Esonice trying to convert inhabitants. This left Esonice with a significant Christian minority of approximately 750,000 adherents, that make up 2.2% of the Esonian population. The majority Christian sect that is worshipped by the Esonian Christian minority is the Tacolic sect. Many individuals that identify themselves as Christian adherents are also migrants and non-Esonians, with the most significant being the Iberic communities of Esonice, specifically the Iverican community. Some Christian customs that were brought into Esonice by missionaries, migrants and Esonians converts, were partially adapted and secularised into Esonian society. Such as Valentine's Day that is thought of as similar to the Sun and moon festival, Christian-style marriage, and Christmas.
Other religions in Esonice include the Muslim faith, specifically the Ismaili Shia sect that makes up the majority of Muslim adherents in Alharu. The Muslim community in Esonice are primarily refugees that escaped persecution and systematic genocide from San Castellino, with little being ethnic Esonians. Only 2,850 out of the 40,000 existing Muslims identified themselves as ethnic Esonian Muslims in the 2020 population census. Only 32 mosques exist in Esonice.
