Greater Slavacia officially The Federation of Greater Slavacia is a federal semi-presidential constitutional republic comprised of a number of states and semi-autonomous republics. It is governed by a President, an elected legislature called the Federal Council, and a Judiciary - Ministry of Justice. It is located on the mainland and nearby off-shore islands on the southern coast of the continent of Archon in the Sovereign Charter.
Modern Greater Slavacia dates back to the early 11th century, where it existed as a loose coalition of Slavic duchies (Knyazhestva) overseen by a High Knyaz. The High Knyaz was himself a duke (Knyaz) chosen by the other dukes to ensure order and coordinate defense, however, due to conflicting interests, the High Knyaz usually held little control over the duchies and mostly administered his own realm. This also meant that there was no centralized authority, as the election of a new duke as High Knyaz would shift the capital to that duke's own city. This system proved unstable, as despite the High Knyaz's low authority, every duchy attempted to be the capital, resulting in decades of internal conflict, up until the unification ages.
The period of unification was the period of Slavic history, where the coalition of duchies was replaced by a centralized monarchy with it's capital in Petrogorod (Modern day Petrograd). It occurred between the years of 1245 and 1257, ending with the subjugation of the Duchy of Rensk, and resulted in the establishment of the Great Slavic Czardom
In 1240, the 15 year old duke of Petrogorod, Knyaz Vladislav II was crowned the High Knyaz after the death of his father. He was able to acquire such a position at an early age due to the influence of his family, one of the most powerful dynasties in the Slavic Duchies, he was the 5th consecutive member of his dynasty to hold that role.
For the first several years after his ascension to the throne, the reign of Vladislav was largely unremarkable, although some policies enacted by him give hints to his desire to unify Slavacia. He imposed heavier restrictions on the dukes' authority in the realm. Although this generated discontent, Vladislav's large army and the prosperity of Petrogorod were able to keep the dukes from revolting for the first several years.
In 1243, a group of exiled Roman nobles arrived in Petrogorod, they were received by Vladislav himself, who was impressed by the tales of a great empire to the north-east, the impression made on Vladislav was so great, that several were appointed his advisers at once. The military adviser, with permission from the High Knyaz, began sweeping reforms in the army, striving to recreate the Roman Imperial standard. Although not entirely successful, Petrogorod's army grew even greater in power. However, the arrival of the Romans caused not only military reforms. As the exiles brought with them a unique religion. They believed in one god, with Jesus Christos as his son. It is written in the chronicles that at that time, the High Knyaz was suffering from pains in his legs and could barely walk, Flavia Octavia, a Roman princess and the daughter of the Caesar who had banished her for following her belief, touched his legs and said a prayer. The next day, the Vladislav woke for the first time with no pain and on the evening of that day, was baptized.
What followed was a large religious campaign set on promoting the new religion, now called the "Prava Vera" ("True Belief"). Within a month on the 15th July 1243, all men and women of Petrogorod were baptized in the river Dera, the central river of Petrogorod.
Politics and Government
During the decades of isolationism following the end of the Slavacian Civil War, the Slavacian economy has become almost completely self-sufficient, with trade making up less than 1% of the nations GDP. However, this has also let to a somewhat stagnant economy and most importantly a reputation of being a poor and somewhat underdeveloped nation. However, that is not the case. Due to nationalization of most natural resources (such as: coal, iron, oil and other various metals), as well as the nationalization of the means of production supplemented by punitive tax rates onto private enterprises (sometimes up to 65% for larger companies) the cost of living in Slavacia is very, very low. From birth every citizen is entitled to a free education, free medical care and upon reaching employment, a free apartment in the city of employment.
The energy production of Slavacia is handled by the Ministry of Energy and it's departments. The majority of the energy produced by the nation comes from nuclear power plants, although coal and hydroelectric power is also reasonably common. The next major step in the power generation industry is said to be fusion, with several experimental centers already producing power. However, their large operating and construction costs currently serve as the biggest deterrent from mass adoption of fusion power.
