Longinor (Portuguese: Longenória), officially the Empire of Longinor (Portuguese: Império da Longenória), is a country in the continent of South America. It is the richest country in South America, the second-largest in area, and the most populous. Its capital is the former Portuguese colony of Ricardopolis, although the largest city is Entremontes, a multicultural city and one of the continents' few global cities. The country is composed of a complex union of kingdoms, duchies, counties, baronies, and other fiefdoms. It is a multicultural country, a result of centuries of sponsored waves of immigrants from all over the world.

It is currently unknown who was the first human group to settle in Longinor; at the time of European arrival, there were two "families" of natives: the Amerindians, of Asian and Polynesian ancestry, and the Amerafros, who were of African lineage. Eventually, an Amerindian ethnicity, the Ybapirangans, established an empire on the landmass of Longinor and subjugated the Kawadans, the largest group in the landmass. However, the Ybapirangan empire was crushed with the arrival of Portuguese settlers and conquerors during the 16th century, paving the way for the establishment of the Colony of Saint Mary of Longinor (Portuguese: Colônia de Santa Maria da Longenória), the first European colony in the landmass of Bartoloterra.

Other European countries also attempted to establish themselves in Bartoloterra, namely the Spanish, the French, the Italians, the Germans, the Polish-Lithuanians, and the English. Out of these competitors, only the French colonists failed to make significant incursions into Longinor, being expelled from Longinor in 1605. The Spanish colonies were established circa 1570, but these were conquered by the Portuguese during the Portuguese Restoration War. France annexed the English colonies following the Seven Years' War, although Portugal annexed the French colony during the Napoleonic Wars. Merchant families established the German and Italian colonies during the 16th to 17th centuries, and despite their relative weakness, they survived all attempts of conquest by foreign powers. The Polish-Lithuanian colonies were established in 1608 and achieved independence during the Partitions of Poland.

Following the Brazilian Independence War, the Portuguese colony of Longinor did not side with the Portuguese garrisons or the Brazilians; instead, it fought for its own independence in an event that became known as the Longinorese Revolutionary Wars. During such conflict, which lasted for 15 years, Longinor annexed its neighboring countries; defeated the Brazilian Imperial Navy, the Portuguese Royal Army, and British expeditionary forces; and established a colonial empire that spanned from South America to Australia.


The name Longinor is the English translation of Longenória, a Portuguese toponym that means "Faraway Land". In fact, The name Longenória was adopted by the Portuguese colonists to refer to the Portuguese colonies located in the landmass of Bartoloterra (Bartolomeu's Land in Portuguese). The first name of the colony was "Saint Mary of Longinor", which remained as so until the division of Portuguese Longinor into three captaincies under the control of the Colony of Brazil in 1670.


Pre-Colonial Period

Previous to the European disembark in the Caribbean in 1492, the landmass of Bartoloterra was inhabited by a plethora of native groups, namely the Amerindians, whose origins can be traced back to Mongol, Polynesian, and Japanese immigrants of the Ice Age; and the Amerafros, who immigrated from Africa approximately 3000 years ago. Among these groups, there were two important pre-Columbian civilizations: the Kawadans and the Ybapirangans. The Kawadans were one of the many Amerafros ethnicities, masters of the art of war and seafaring. The Ybapirangans, on the other hand, were skilled astronomers who mastered the art of craftsmanship. Both civilizations, just like the Han and the Mongols, were skilled in different areas and were always at odds with each other.

During 1400 and 1503 the Kawadans and the Ybapirangans engaged in a conflict named the Centurial War. Although the war was marked by a significant number of truces between the warring states, the conflict can be considered the bloodiest of the pre-Columbian era in the American Continent. Such a devastating conflict came to its conclusion in 1503 with the sack of the Kawadan capital, Musekuna. Most Kawadans were enslaved by the Ybapirangans, while its elite was put to the sword. In 1505 the first Europeans arrived in Bartoloterra. The men led by Portuguese explorer Nuno Marques de Souza became the first Europeans to disembark on the shores of Longinor, at the time named Narabatah by the Ybapirangans. Although the Portuguese were received by a friendly group of Ybapirangans, one of Nuno de Souza's captains, Fernão de Lisboa, saw the restlessness of the Kawadans as a potential source of conquest. By uniting forces with the Kawadan remnants against their Ybapirangan overlords, Fernão thought a conquest of the Ypabirangan Empire would be possible.

In 1508 the Portuguese returned, this time with a much larger fleet, composed of veteran sailors and soldiers. Upon disembarking on the northern shores of Narabatah, the Portuguese began sacking and plundering Ybapirangan cities, freeing their Kawadan slaves, who in turn joined the Portuguese ranks. After three years of fighting in the tropical plains of northern Longinor, the war ended with a conclusive Portuguese victory: the Ybapirangan Empire was no more, as their leadership was executed, most cities leveled and their riches transported to mainland Portugal.

Colonial Period

The year 1510 is considered the beginning of the Portuguese colonization of Longinor. Over the course of four centuries, Portugal colonized the entirety of the Northern Shores all the way down to the Kakosia Mountain Chain (Portuguese: Montanhas Cacôsia), which divides northern and southern Longinor. Portuguese colonization was based on sugarcane plantations and gold extraction and is considered to be the model that served as the basis for the later colonization of Brazil, which effectively began in 1530. The Portuguese Colony in Longinor, named "Santa Maria da Longenória", was a collection of privately owned settlements and territories under the supervision of the Portuguese crown. It was mostly an "exploitation" colony as defined by modern historians, although extensive settlement did occur in some regions.

In 1540 the Spanish began the colonization of the far-western tip of Longinor, a territory claimed by Spain according to the Treaty of Tordesillas. Unlike the Portuguese colonies, the Spanish colony was a vice-royalty under the direct control of the crown. Settlement of the territory was promoted, although slaves were occasionally imported from the Vice-Royalty of the Rio de La Plata. Unlike the Portuguese colonies, the Spanish Vice-Royalty of Tierra Verde had manufactories and a university. Tierra Verde also had its economy based on commerce with other Spanish colonies (it was dependent on the Spanish-American territories), while Portuguese Longenória depended on the European market. France also attempted to settle Longinor, engaging in numerous colonial wars and raids with the Portuguese until the War of 1605, which saw the definitive loss of French territories to the Portuguese.

By the end of the 16th century, following the death of heirless Portuguese king Sebastião, Portugal and Spain were united under the Habsburgs during the Iberian Union, although the colonies in Bartoloterra remained under the jurisdiction of their previous overlord upon Portuguese independence circa 1640. During the Portuguese Restoration War, the Portuguese expanded their colonial domains in Longinor, annexing all the Spanish colonies in Bartoloterra. Around the same period, England began the settlement of Southern Longinor, named Greyridge. The English pioneers were mostly refugees from the English Civil War of 1642-1651 alongside religious minorities. A handful of slaves were imported from Africa, but for the most part, the English colonization was one of settlement and not exploitation: the climate of Greyridge is temperate and, although the land was fertile, there was little interest in the establishment of plantations such as the ones seen in the Caribbean.

In 1718, silver and gold mines were discovered in Greyridge. The boom resulting from such a discovery attracted an influx of settlers from Great Britain, although it also attracted the prying eyes of the French, who did not waste an opportunity to seize the gold mines amidst the Seven Years' War. During the conflict, the French attacked both Longinor and Greyridge, although the Longinorians resisted fiercely the French advances and eventually remained under Portuguese rule. Greyridge, on the other hand, did not resist and succumbed to the French. When the war ended, Greyridge became part of the French Colonial Empire under the name of "Golden Mountain" (Montagne Dorée).


Longinor is the second-largest country in South America and the fourth-largest in the American continent. It occupies 5,623,432 km2, the entirety of the landmass of Bartoloterra. As such, it is surrounded by the South Atlantic Ocean and does not share land borders with any other country, although it does border the sea territories of Brazil, the United Kingdom, and Argentina. Longinor spans two time zones: UTC-3 in the western half (also the national time) and UTC-2 in the eastern half. Most of the terrain lies between 150 and 1000 meters of elevation; in the center, in the Cacosia Mountains, the highest elevation point is 4783 meters. Longinor possesses a complex system of rivers, the majority of them navigable. There are eight major drainage basins, and every single one of them drains into the Atlantic Ocean. Major rivers include the Terisó, the Santo Antônio, the Mildroque, the Martiniano, and the Malaberga.

Government and Politics

Longinor is defined by its 2002 constitution to be a federal parliamentary constitutional monarchy, where the rule of the majority is ensured but minority rights are enshrined in law. The constitution is one of the world's newest; it was adopted in December 2002 following a coup d'état by a liberal sector of the Armed Forces, which opposed the Military Dictatorship. It is one of the world's oldest federations, in which power is divided among the federal government, the fiefdoms, and the municipalities. The Longinorian government system features elements from the political systems of the United States (Federalism, written constitution, guarantee of liberties) and the United Kingdom (an unelected upper house, nobility system, multiparty system).


The legislative of Longinor is set up in a bicameral system, known as the Imperial Parliament. There are two chambers, The Senate (upper house) and The Forum (lower house).

The Federal government is divided into three branches: Legislative (the bicameral parliament, comprising the Minister-President, the cabinet, The Senate, and The Forum; the Executive, comprised of the Emperor and the Imperial Council; and the Judiciary, composed of the Supreme Imperial Court and the other national courts.

The head of government is the Minister-President. The office is appointed by the monarch, and the minister-president is usually from the party or the coalition with the most seats Longinor's electoral system uses first-past-the-post voting for the lower house. Members of the upper house are appointed by the monarch, by the fiefdoms' Parliaments, and elected through the Imperial Council. Categories:Constitutional monarchies
