Nikolia (Serbian:Nikolija; Mazurian: Nikolia), officially the Kingdom of Nikolia (Serbian: Kraljevina Nikolija; Mazurian: Królestwo Nikolskie), is a country on the Mederano Peninsula on the continent of Teudallum in western Astyria. It is bordered to the south by Berique, Smertolina, the Dangish Empire and ViZion and on all other sides by the Mederano Sea. The capital city of Nikolia is Carigrad, while the largest city in the Kingdom is Beograd. With 6,182,800 km2 of area, Nikolia is fifth largest country in Astyria per area, and the first in Teudallum. According to the 2019 census, there were 528,364,156 citizens of Nikolia. The official languages of Nikolia are Serbian and Mazurian, while recognised minority languages are French, English and Czech.

The earliest Slavic state on the territory of modern Nikolia, the Principality of Sirmia was founded in 276 AD by Prince Stanislav I and is considered by scholars as the first Nikolian state. In 512 AD, King Uroš I unified several Slavic statelettes and expanded the territories further south. The early kingdom was challenged by the Ethlorekoz from the east and Berique from the south, nevertheless, the territory expanded further east. The largest expansion of the Nikolian territory happened in 952 AD when Stefan I founded the Empire of Nikolia and relocated the capital from Vladimirovac to Carigrad and brought Christianity to Nikolia in 964 AD.

Politics

Nikolia is a constitutional monarchy ruled by King Aleksandar II of Nikolia acting as a head of state. The power is distributed in 3 independent branches of the government: The executive branch is vested on the Crown Council of Nikolia and the Monarch, the legislation is vested on the unicameral parliament, the National Assembly of Nikolia and the Council of Voivodeships, which acts as an auxiliary legislative body composing of the representatives of the 24 Voivodeships of Nikolia, and the judiciary which is vested on the independent court system, among which the highest in hierarchy is the Supreme Court of Cassation.

Crown Council

The Crown Council (Serbian: Krunski savet, Mazurian: Rada Korony) is the supreme governmental council which brings together the principal officers of the executive branch of the Nikolian government. The Crown Council is composed of 14 government ministers, two representatives of the Constitutional Court of Nikolia and the Metropolitan of Carigrad. The Crown Council is presided over by the Chancellor of Nikolia, who serves as the de facto prime minister of Nikolia.

National Assembly

Council of Voivodeships

Administrative divisions

Nikolia is composed of twenty-four constituent states known as Voivodeships (Serbian: Vojvodstvo Mazurian: Województwo), which equals to a Duchy in other monarchies. Each Voivodeship has its own constitution, government, and is largely autonomous in regard to its internal organisation. Voivodeships are headed by a voivode who, together with the Voivodeship government represents the executive branch in the Voivodeship. Legislature is represented with parliaments of each Voivodeship. Voivodeships are further divided into counties (Serbian: Županija Mazurian: Powiat), which are in turn divided further into municipalities and cities.
