Fubukino, officially the Fubukinotochi Stratocracy, is a country in Burania on the continent of Europa. It stretches from the Kosscow Sea to the North Oriental Ocean. It has a diverse population of 28 million. Fubukino's capital is Akaiyama, while Altacastra being its largest city.
Fubukino is the shortened form of the more formal name of the native populace, known formally as Fubukinotochi. It comes from the description of the land Ide Jiman surveyors and explorers meaning "Snowstorm lands".

Fubukino inhabits northern Burania with its territory being almost entirely tundra.
Fubukino previously was more sparsely populated by the Kuzeyden and a sizable portion of Volsci in the vast Kuzeyeri Federation, its capital then known as Kürkalesi, lost to time and ruin. In the late 18th century, an up tick in growth would begin with the resettlement of Ide Jimans that were not so tolerated for their more different culture, even if they were themselves Ide Jiman. The Kuzeyeri Federation had long been a nation stuck in the past and subjugated by the neighboring Volsci throughout history, which proved to be no exception when the Fubukino would eventually arrive. Though after some 50 years the settlements ceased, they were so abundant that by this time reproduction aided the Fubukino in being of equal in numbers as their indigenous neighbors. It is believed that were it not for the vocal minority of Volsci nativists in the Federation, history would have been far different. The Volsci nativists argued that the settlement of their lands by the Fubukino was an encroachment upon their territory and that the federation was failing to put a stop to.
Whilst the nativists were always a minority, their warnings were a self fulfilled prophecy as tensions rose between the two groups and eventually conflict broke out in the First Fubukino Civil War, which lasted for the duration of nine years. In 1852, Momoka Kono, a prominent Fubukino, was assassinated by a politically well-connected Volsci nativist extremist who proclaimed Kono to be the first of many victims. Leaders of Fubukino communities voiced their displeasure demanding action be taken only to be met with a cold shoulder and silence at first by Volsci elites. The Federation's eventual attempt to do something quickly stalled as Volsci nativists blocked the path to reprehension. The back and forth over time with several more assassinations proved too much as three months later from the inciting incident, a scuffle to suppress rioting in present day Akaiyama turned deadly and changed the future of Kuzeyeri. The low morale of the military due to under funding and lacklustre training set back what could have been a brief conflict between the two sides, since Fubukino communities were more divided by taking action. Historians believe that the strife could have been snuffed out in a couple of months and ended up protracted to nearly a decade. With the cessation of conflict, it was initially a victory for the future of both sides, despite the costly toll. Federation officials, many of whom were Kuzeyden, fought to return peace to the nation and equity. But in the long term, the impact of the war only further stirred tensions between the two groups.
In the following years, Volsci looked down upon the Fubukino for causing such a ruckus and subjugated them with harsher taxes and scrutinizing Fubukino merchants and their commerce. Oppressive policies like frisking at random Fubukino and overlooked crime in which Fubukino were victims began to stir up tensions further many decades later. In 1951, in a poor call made by an officer in charge of an off duty garrison that went to see a Volsci pianist play, several Fubukino were fired upon. It came at the conclusion of the pianist's set, where he proclaimed his disdain for the disruptions made by the Fubukino and stood by his Volsci kind. As they jeered at him, the officer ordered that they be removed and arrested from the venue until he was spat upon. As this enraged him, he revised his orders to kill anyone who dared defied them in any manner. This resulted in what is acknowledged as the inciting incident, dubbed the Forte Massacre. By this point, Fubukino armed groups had formed after the fallout of the first civil conflict. The conflict would be far more brief, as they were in a stalemate from the beginning, with little movement. As the war crept towards a third year, Kuzeyden officials stepped in mediation between the two sides and brought the conflict to a ceasefire.
In 1958, the script would be flipped on the entire Federation. As many veterans in support of the Volsci departed the military, many Fubukino rose in the military. Major Yasu Kobayashi successfully carried out a coup of the government and deposed the Kuzeyden while imprisoning the Volsci. What was first meant to be a provisional military junta eventually evolved into the legalization of the military's authority as the governing entity of the rechristened nation of Fubukinotochi. Kobayashi took little time to subject the Volsci to their own tactics and piled upon them even more. Since 1958, Fubukino has been under the control of the Fubukino. Since gaining control of the nation, there were remarkable changes that were made. Many Volsci have disappeared over the decades and some believe that there was a quiet program to cleanse them, given the stark decrease over time. It is unknown, if that program did exist, how long it lasted.
The governing body of Fubukino is known as the Executive Command which has a matriarchal tendency. From the relocated capital of Akaiyama, the Stratocracy consists of a council that resembles that of an executive cabinet, with the Field Marshal as the Head of State and Government. Each member of the cabinet is a head of a department and there are no 'branches' of government.
Fubukino retains great disdain towards their northern neighbor and is often found cooperating with those in opposition of them.
Ethnically, Fubukino is a mixed bag that has no majority group. The Fubukino ethnic group is the largest, registering at 42% while Volsci register at 27%, Kuzeyden at 18%, Tagmatine at 11% and more.
