Lemovicia (Lemovician: Менділура, Mendilurra, Miersan: Łemowicze) is a partially-recognised state located in Euclea, bordered to the north by West Miersa, to the east and south by Slirnia, and to the west by Minilov. Situated in the middle of Euclea, it is one of the few doubly landlocked countries in existence in the world. As of 2017, Lemovicia has a population of 1,014,866 people, and with an area of 41,834.24 square kilometres, is one of the smaller countries in Euclea.



The area of Lemovicia was the named after the Lemovices, a Tenic tribe who inhabited the present-day region of Lemovicia at the time of the Solarian Empire. The name of the Lemovices derive from the term lemo, meaning elm, and vices, meaning "those who win," which indicates that the Lemovices meant "winners with elm," due to their weaponry being made of elm. However, there are claims that the name may have been what the Tenic inhabitants of present-day Lemovicia referred to the Paleo-Lemovician people, who have inhabited the territory.

The name used by the native Lemovicians to refer to the land is Mendilurra (Pavotrian: Менділура), which is a shortened form of Mendien lurra (мендіен лура) meaning land of the hills, due to the terrain where the Lemovicians traditionally lived.

Historically, Malomiersa was used to describe Lemovicia, meaning "little Miersa" in Miersan and other Marolevic languages, as it was smaller than Miersa after the Kingdom of Lemovicia was annexed by the Miersans in the (TBD). It is still commonly used in Marolevic countries, and among those who refuse to acknowledge the Lemovician government's sovereignty.



Evidence of human habitation of present-day Lemovicia dates back from 16,000 BCE to 12,500 BCE, with stone tools and ruins of paleolithic settlements within the area dating back to around that period of time, particularly in the lowlands of Lemovicia. The highlands of Lemovicia began to be settled from around 9,000 BCE onward, and by around 5,000 BCE, most of Lemovicia had been settled by humans.

However, it is unclear which language or culture they belonged to, although many ethnic Lemovicians claim that they are directly descended from the proto-Eucleans who inhabited Lemovicia.

By the time of the Solarian Empire, Tenic peoples moved into the lowlands, where they were called the Lemovices, while the Lemovicians enter the historical record as the Menes people.

Industrial Revolution

increased migration from Miersa and Narozalica, increasing Slavicization of Lemovicia, native Lemovician language is threatened by increasing Marolav population, especially in the lowlands

Great War

Due to Lemovicia's geographic location on the border with Amathia and Gaullica, who controlled portions of present-day Slirnia, as soon as Narozalica entered the Great War in 1927, Lemovicia became a strategic target for the Entente forces, as although the southern regions of Lemovicia were mountainous, beyond the Mendija Mountains laid an easy path for the Entente forces to advance into Narozalica.



A street in Mistózburó, 1953

In the aftermath of the Great War, the area of present-day Lemovicia initially remained part of the Miersan Governate. However, as tensions rose across the region, which culminated in the Miersan general strike which also affected Lemovicia, due to its majority Miersan population.

Despite efforts by the Lemovician community to remain part of Narozalica, when the Godfredson Plan was drafted up, as the region of Malomiersa had been "thoroughly integrated" with the Miersan Governate, combined with assurances that Narozalica would continue to have influence over West Miersa, it was decided that Malomiersa was to become part of the newly-established Miersan Federation, as the Malomiersan Voivodeship, with its capital to be in the city of Mistózburó (present-day Topagunea).

Over the following decades, the Lemovician community were subject to a policy of Miersanization, with the Lemovician language being prohibited from being used in schools and in governmental jobs. Thus, while in 1936, the share of ethnic Lemovicians was at 46% of the voivodeship's population, by 1977, it had fallen to a mere 34% of the population, as many Lemovicians either emigrated or assimilated into the dominant Miersan identity.

During this period, coal and iron remained the dominant natural resources of Lemovicia, with these resources being extracted by the government in Żobrodź, but by the 1970s, as coal and iron mines began closing, many ethnic Lemovicians began reasserting their ethnic identity against the Miersan identity, with tensions growing between the two communities. At the same time, two factions sought to assert control of Lemovician nationalism: Eztebe Tolaregain's right-wing Lemovician Cultural Alliance, and the more established Lemovician Section of the Worker's International on the left of the political spectrum.

Civil war

As Narozalica began to collapse on itself with the outbreak of the Second Narozalic Civil War in August 1979, Lemovician nationalist organisations sought to take the opportunity to declare independence from the Narozalic Empire. Thus, on 21 November, 1979, Eztebe Tolaregain declared the establishment of the State of Lemovicia in Topagunea, with himself as President. After a brief war of independence, Narozalic forces withdrew from Lemovicia by December 1979, and although Tolaregain was the de-jure leader of the country, Saroi Garnica became the uncontested leader of the country. In February 1980, Garnica officially became President, while the first elections were held to the National Assembly, seeing the People's Front for Democracy and Justice take 106 of the 110 seats, with only four seats going to independent politicians.

However, the implementation of a constitution which disenfranchised all minorities, combined with his increasing authoritarianism, and poor management of the national economy, made him very unpopular among huge swaths of the Lemovician population, leading to protests breaking out in Sechia on 5 March, 1980: when these protests were crushed, copycat protests rose in Zubiharra, Loiola, Topagunea, and Włocłamyśl, which were similarly crushed. Thus, by the end of the month, Otxote Sasiambarrena declared himself President, while the Miersan Republic of Malomiersa was established by Izydor Domzalski.

While there were initial gains on all sides, by 1985, the Lemovician opposition forces and the Miersan separatists allied to defeat the Lemovician government. Despite this, a stalemate ensued, with no real progress. However, as both sides sought to conduct ethnic cleansing, particularly by the late 1980s, the international community started to demand that the war end. As the population grew more war-weary, all three sides eventually were forced to negotiate in the Piraean capital of Alikianos in April 1992: by June 1992, they were able to agree to end the civil war, which by that point resulted in substantial population displacement, killed nearly 400,000 people, including around 300,000 civilians, and devastated the country's economy. Peacekeepers were sent into Lemovicia to ensure that the peace was maintained, while war criminals on all sides were tried in Ashcombe.

Contemporary era

Sechia, 2007

Following the signing of the Alikianos Accords on 22 June, 1992, and the adoption of a new constitution on 1 October of that year, the first free and fair elections were held in Lemovician history the following month, with all seats of the National Assembly, and the Presidency being elected.

Under the term of the first Premier Fabian Duch of the Liberal Democrats, the main priority of the new Lemovician government was to rebuild the country, as the Lemovician Civil War had effectively destroyed the nation's economy: thus, the second denar was introduced in 1993, and he made an attempt to join Samorspi, which was forced to be abandoned following protests by the Lemovician community. By the 1990s, the major cities of Sechia and Loiola have been substantially rebuilt, and with ethnic tensions between the Lemovician and Miersan communities diminishing, the international peacekeeping presence has been reduced significantly, leading to Duch's re-election in 1996, and 2000. By 2004, the first peaceful transition of power in nearly three decades happened, as Otxote Sasiambarrena of the Liberal Democrats became the second Premier.

However, Lemovicia was hit hard with the financial crisis in 2005, and Sasiambarrena's response led to the election of the Socialists under Jan Swiech. Swiech helped to improve the country's economic position, and ensure that the recovery "benefited the people of Lemovicia." By 2011, the economy reached pre-2005 levels, allowing him to get re-elected the following year. However, Swiech's "tax and spend" policies made him unpopular among many, while his plans to join the Euclean Community made him unpopular among many of the Miersans.

Thus, in 2016, Jan Swiech was suceeded by Sergiusz Galecki of the Liberal Democrats as Premier. Under his rule, he abandoned efforts to join the Euclean Community, and instead resumed negotiations to join Samorspi, his economic policies were reoriented which reduced much of the welfare state built up by Swiech. As well, Galecki sought to begin reforms to make the Lemovician government more efficient and accountable, which has been met with substantial controversy, particularly as both the Lemovician Entity and the Miersan Entity fear that they would lose autonomy, while supporters argue that it would help Lemovicia move past the scars of the civil war. In 2020, Lemovicia was officially admitted to Samorspi.


View of the Andia River, 2006

Lemovicia is traditionally divided into the lowlands (Lemovician: єскаріяк, eskariak, Miersan: niziny), situated in the northern regions of the country, and the highlands (Lemovician: мендіалдеян, mendialdean, Miersan: wyżyny), situated in the southern regions of the country, which is home to the Mendija Mountains, and the country's highest point, at 2,655 metres high, is at Mount Amalur.

The lowlands of Lemovicia have traditionally been more suitable for agriculture, as they are flat and have fertile soil, with the most fertile lands situated along the longest river in Lemovicia, the Andia River. However, the flatness of the lowlands has historically made it vulnerable to foreign invasion, as the lack of geographically defensive features within the region made it an easy target for foreign invasion. In contrast, the highlands are not as suitable for agriculture, but in addition to its defensive capabilities, it is home to much of Lemovicia's natural resources, particularly coal and iron.


Due to Lemovicia's geographic position in the middle of Euclea, it is on average colder than other places on the same latitude, such as southern Gaullica, northern Bahia, or the west coast of Halland.

The lowlands of Lemovicia have a humid continental climate, with warm summers and cool winters: average temperatures there range from a low of −10.7 °C in January to a high of 25.1 °C in July, with the highest recorded temperature set in Sechia on 13 August, 2019, at 40.3 °C.

In the highlands, although it is closer to the equator, the higher elevations gives it a hot dry-summer continental climate, with average temperatures ranging form a low of −8.0 °C in January to a high of 30.8 °C in July, and the highest elevations give an alpine climate. The lowest recorded temperature in Lemovicia is found in the highlands, with a temperature of -43.9 °C recorded at a weather station near the summit of Mount Alamur on 2 February, 1962.


Headquarters of Lemavia, 2015

For much of Lemovicia's history, the economy of the area was largely based off of agriculture, with fertile valleys along the shores of the rivers, including the longest, the Andia River, helping provide the area with much of their income. While forestry was significant, by the eighteenth century, much of the primeval forests had been cut down.

However, with the discovery of coal and iron, the economy of Lemovicia shifted as these materials were vital for the industrialization of certain countries, especially of Narozalica, which Lemovicia was part of at the time. With this migration, a manufacturing sector emerged, although compared to the rest of Narozalica, this sector was small.

Over the coming decades, its economy became largely based on the extraction of coal and iron, as its manufacturing sector was destroyed by the Great War. While the manufacturing sector was rebuilt in the 1940s, it played a smaller role in the national economy than what it used to.

However, following the start of the Lemovician War of Independence in 1979, followed by the Lemovician Civil War in 1980, the Lemovician economy was destroyed. Thus, Lemovicia spent the next few decades reconstructing its economy, with its economy becoming more based on the service sector, as its natural resources have become largely exhausted. One of the largest companies that emerged from Lemovicia since the Lemovician Civil War is Lemavia Airlines, a budget airline specialising in flights between western and eastern Euclea.

The currency of Lemovicia is the denaror Ð).


Lemovicia is a federal constitutionally socialist council republic, with the head of state being the Presidency since the adoption of the current Lemovician constitution in 1992, and the head of government being Premier Sergiusz Galecki, who was first elected in 2016, and re-elected in 2020.

The only political party legally allowed is the Lemovician Section of the Workers' International, with the Lemovician Section of the Worker's International controlling 95 of the 110 seats as of 2020, with the remainder of the seats being allocated to independent politicians.


The official executive of Lemovicia is the presidency (Lemovician: лєгєндакаріца, lehendakaritza, Miersan: przewodnictwo), comprising of four individuals, of which two are from the Lemovician community, one from the Miersan community, and one from other communities in Lemovicia.

The executive is elected from the people, with elections every four years to select the four members of the Presidency. Once elected, the position of Chairman and Vice-Chairman rotate once a year, with the Chairman required to not come from the same group as that of the Vice-Chairman. As of 2020, the current executives are Chairman Postumo Boloquy, Vice-Chairman Damian Rogal, Andremantzia Sorondo, and Surány Tibor.


The legislative branch of Lemovicia according to the current Lemovician constitution is the unicameral Lemovician Assembly (Lemovician: Менділурарен бацара, Mendilurraren batzarra, Miersan: Zgromadzenie Łemowicze), comprising of 110 legislators, elected from the areas under control of the Lemovician government: the areas outside of Lemovician control are unrepresented in the Lemovician government.

The legislature is elected every four years via party-list proportional representation, with the head of government being a member of the Lemovician Assembly, currently Sergiusz Galecki, who was elected in 2016, and re-elected in 2020.

Legal system

Traditionally, the legal system of Lemovicia was based off the lehen legeak, which was their own customary law code used by the Lemovicians. However, due to its location within central Euclea, and its history of foreign rule, the Lemovician legal system has been greatly influenced by both the legal systems used in Miersa, and in Narozalica.

Following its independence, Lemovicia adopted a legal system heavily influenced by the socialist legal system used in East Miersa and Swetania, with its system of courts being influenced by that of the legal system of East Miersa.

Policing in Lemovicia is provided by the Lemovician Police Force, while defense of Lemovicia is provided by the Lemovician Armed Forces.

Foreign relations

Due to Lemovicia's status as a partially-recognised state, in conjunction with Lemovicia's socialist ideology, Lemovicia has been perceived by many entities, particularly Samorspi, as being an East Miersan puppet state with very little independence.

As of 2020, it is recognized by X countries, of which it has diplomatic relations with Y, mostly among members of the Association for International Socialism, of which it has applied to join, but has yet to be accepted into its ranks, due to a variety of reasons. It is not a member of the Community of Nations, due to the fact that Narozalica supports West Miersa's claim over Lemovicia.

Administrative divisions

Lemovicia was traditionally divided into seven provinces (Lemovician: пробінція, probintzia, pl. пробінціяк, probintziak, Miersan: województwo, pl. województwa), covering the entire country. The provinces date back to the original Kingdom of Lemovicia, and were reinstated following Lemovicia's independence from West Miersa in 1979.

Since the end of the Lemovician War in 1992, only four provinces are officially under the control of the Lemovician government, with the remainder being part of the West Miersan voivodeship of Malomiersa. It also controls what it considers the Slirnian Autonomous Region, which according to West Miersa is part of the voivodeship of Nadmorzem.

As of the 2017 census, 781,866 people live in the area controlled by the authorities in Lemovicia. (TBC)


As of the 2017 census, the largest ethnic group, at around 52% of the nation's population, or 1,301,340 people, were the Miersans, who are primarily concentrated in the Miersan Entity. The next largest ethnic group are the indigenous Lemovicians, at 43% of the nation's population, or 1,076,108 people, concentrated primarily in the Lemovician Entity, but with sizable pockets in the Miersan Entity.

Of the remaining five percent of the country's population, 50,051 people, or two percent of the nation's population, are Narodyn, while 37,539 people, or around 1.5% of the nation's population, are Savaders, and the remainder belong to other ethnic groups.


Rural Episimialist church, 2014

As of the 2017 census, around 96% of the population, or 2,402,474 people, are adherents to Sotirianity.

The largest sect is the Episemialist Church, with 71% of the population, or 1,776,830 people, adhering to the Episimialist Church, with most Lemovicians and Amathians adhering to the Episemialist Metropolitanate of All Lemovicia. Until 1992, the High Episimialist Church was the official religion of Lemovicia, with practice of non-Episimialist religions heavily restricted.

The next largest sect of Sotirianity is the Solarian Catholic Church, with 23% of Lemovicia's population, or 575,593 people, adhering to the Solarian Catholic faith, with virtually all of them being ethnic Miersans.

Finally, the remainder of the Sotirian population adhere to other sects of Sotirianity, primarily Bogomilism, and Amendist sects.

The remaining four percent of the national population, or 100,103 people, are split roughly evenly, with 50,055 being irreligious, and 50,048 people following other religions, primarily neo-paganism.


Officially, Lemovicia has been a bilingual country since 1992, with the two official languages being the language isolate Lemovician language and the Marolevic Miersan language.

As of the 2017 census, sixty percent of the country, or 1,501,546 people, speak Miersan as their first language, while thirty-five percent of the population, or 875,902 people, speak the Lemovician language.

Of the remaining five percent of the national population, around two percent of the population, or 50,052 people reported speaking Narodyn as their first language, one percent, or 25,026 people, reported speaking Savader as their first language, and the remainder reported other languages as their first language.

Around 74% of the population, or 1,851,907 people, report that they can comfortably communicate in both official languages, while only 0.04% of the population, or 1,001 people cannot speak either official language.

Largest cities



As per the 1992 Lemovician constitution, education is the responsibility of the two entities.

Education in the Miersan Entity is still based on the Narozalic education system as was structured prior to the outbreak of the Second Narozalic Civil War in 1979, and Lemovicia's independence war, while education in the Lemovician Entity is based off of the eastern Euclean educational model, with the differences being due to the Lemovician Civil War, with the government adopting an eastern model of education, while the separatists maintained the Narozalic model of education.

However, since the 2011-12 academic year, university education has been consistent across all of Lemovicia, with three years for a bachelor's degree, and two additional years to get a master's degree.


The healthcare system of Lemovicia is regulated by the federal government, as per the 1992 Lemovician constitution. Thus, the main ministry responsible for overseeing the Lemovician healthcare system is the federal Ministry of Health, currently held by Aiora Harambure as of 2020. The Ministry of Health is responsible for licensing doctors, nurses, clinics, and regulating the operations of doctors, nurses, clinics, and hospitals.

As of 1993, Lemovicia has a single-payer universal healthcare system, and since the Lemovician Civil War has improved the nation's healthcare system. As of 2017, life expectancy is 77.13 years, with 81.53 years for women, and 72.73 years for men.


Section of the A1 near Illarduya, 2005

Transportation in Lemovicia is regulated by the Ministry of Transportation on the federal level, as well as by both the constituent entities and the provinces.

The motorway network in Lemovicia is sparse: as of 2019, the only motorways are the A1, which starts at the southern border with Minilov, and then proceeds to go via Goikoetxea, Topagunea, and Sechia to the northern border with West Miersa. the A2 connecting from the border with Minilov in the west, via Zubiharra, Topagunea, and Bailara, before terminating at the border with Slrinia, and the A3, which starts at the border with West Miersa, goes via Domwiej and Sechia, and continues on to Włocłamyśl, before terminating in Slirnia.

Railways are operated by the Lemovia, which was established in 2017 following the merger of Lemovician National Railways, which operated in the Lemovician Entity, and the North Lemovician Railway Service, which operated in the Miersan Entity. Lemovia is responsible for operating passenger services and maintenance of the railway infrastructure, which all use TBD.

There are only two international airports: Sechia International Airport, located near Sechia, and Topagunea International Airport, located in North Topagunea. Of this, the former is the more prominent international airport, serving as the hub for the privately-owned Lemavia Airlines, which is the Lemovician flag carrier.




Traditionally, Lemovician cuisine is dictated by Lemovicia's geography, as well as the ethnicities inhabiting the country, with Miersan cuisine being more influential in the northern parts of Lemovicia, and Lemovician cuisine more influential in the south of Lemovicia, due to the fact that Miersans form the majority of the population in the north, and Lemovicians form the majority of the population in the south.

Despite the historically poor relations between the two communities in Lemovicia, common pan-Lemovician foods consumed by both the Lemovician and Miersan communities include xerra, gazta gogorra, kielbasa, pierogi, ospakizun, and pączek. As well, since the end of the Lemovician Civil War in 1992, and the subsequent opening-up of Lemovicia to the world, globalisation has led to foods such as pizza and hamburgers becoming popular, particularly among the younger generations residing in cities.


An eremu for pilota in Sechia, 2005

Traditionally, ethnic Lemovicians played traditional Lemovician sports, with the most popular traditional sports that continue to be played by the Lemovician community including Harri-jasotzaileak, sokatira, oilar jokoa, and the country's national sport, pilota.

However, due to rule by foreign powers throughout its history, such as by Miersa and Narozalica, combined with migration by Miersans into Lemovicia during the industrial revolution, sports from these countries, such as basketball, zadany, ice hockey, and football have gained popularity in Lemovicia, and are today widely played among all peoples in the country.

Of these, the most popular sports are pilota and football, although pilota is more popular among ethnic Lemovicians than Miersans, while football is more popular among Miersans than ethnic Lemovicians.


Lemovicia has a free press since the end of the Lemovician Civil War and the promulgation of the 1992 Lemovician constitution.

While commercial radio and television are popular throughout Lemovicia, the governments of the Lemovician Entity and Miersan Entity operate the Lemovician language Lemovician National Television and Radio, and the Miersan language Polnoca Radio and Television, which are effectively the de-facto state broadcasters.

Newspapers are still popular among Lemovicia, with the two de-facto newspapers of record being the Lemovician language Aztertzailea and the Miersan-language Obserwator z Przejścia, both of whom are broadsheets.
