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 princedoms (Knyazhestva) overseen by a High Prince (Velikiy Knyaz). The High Prince was himself a prince (Knyaz) chosen by the other princes to ensure order and coordinate defense, however, due to conflicting interests, the High Prince usually held little control over the princedoms and mostly administered his own realm. This also meant that there was no centralized authority, as the election of a new prince as High Prince would shift the capital to that princes' own city. This system proved unstable, as despite the High Prince's low authority, every princedom 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 princedoms was replaced by a centralized monarchy with its capital in Derov (Modern day Petrograd). It occurred between the years of 1245 and 1257, ending with the subjugation of the Princedom of Rensk, and resulted in the establishment of the Great Slavic Czardom
In 1240, the 15 year old prince of Derov, Knyaz Vladislav II was crowned the High Prince 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 Princedoms, 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 princes' authority in the realm. Although this generated discontent, Vladislav's large army and the relative prosperity of Derov were able to keep the princes from revolting for the first several years.
In 1243, a group of exiled Roman nobles arrived in Derov, 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 year on the 15th July 1244, all men and women of Derov 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 in Slavacia is managed by the state, specifically the Ministry of Energy. The ministry has several departments, with each department responsible for a certain type of power generation. The department of Atomic energy handles fission and fusion power production, the department of hydroelectricity handles hydroelectric power and etc. Notable exceptions include the Department of Power Transmission and Department of Energy conservation, which focus on broader aspects. The Ministry of Energy shares some projects with the Ministry of Heavy Industry (Atomic & Hydroelectric power); Ministry of Medium Industry (Coal, Gas, Wind and Solar power). Some projects are also collaborations with the Ministries of Defense and State Security.
To the average consumer, electrical power is cheap and abundant, although blackouts are not unheard of. The biggest consumers of energy are the: Ministries of Heavy, Medium, Light Industry and Defense. It is primarily produced by atomic power, with the others accounting for 15-20% depending on the number of reactors in use at any given time.
