Etymology

The Aroman name for Qubdi, Kýptos (Γυπτος), comes from the Classical Adapton Occidental Aroman name ku-pi-ti-jo. This Adapton form is likely from Middle Qubdian kꜣ ptḥ, meaning "the kꜣ of Ptah". The god Ptah was worshipped at a temple complex near Taqdir. The Anglish name Qubdi is also derived from the Classical Aroman "ku-pi-ti-yo". Compare this to the Hakkadian "ku-up-ta-aḫ". In Sahrabic it is known as "qubṭī" or "قبط" ("qubṭ"). In Oharic the name is Gubita ("mound").

Politics

Government

(How kind of government? Who is the head of state/government? Legislature is the unicameral Tajmae ("gathering"). When was the last election or change of government? Which political parties are there? Turn Sayyid Qutb of Qutbism) into a political figure.)

Foreign relations

(WIP. How are the foreign relations? What's the relationship with its direct neighbours, other states in Amutia, Europa and on Eurth?)

Qubdi maintains good relations with nearly all of its neighbouring countries. It maintains bilateral trade agreements with the other Amutian states. The country's foreign policy is focussed on the economic and security benefits while maintaining territorial integrity. The relationship with Lewana and RIW is tense, largely because of the separatist Lewanese Unionist Workers Party, which is funded by RIW and seeks to join the Lewana. Qubdi is an observer of the Organisation for Salamid Unity.

Military

Qubdian tank fires.

The Qubdian Armed Forces (QAF) include all military forces, with the President as supreme commander. The military is a conscripted force, where all males serve in the military upon reaching the age of 18. It has XXX active personnel, including YYY in the navy, and ZZZ in the air force. The paramilitary security forces include the police, serve under the Ministry of Interior, and report to the Prime Minister.

  • Ethnic groups: mostly Copts, with minorities from neighbouring migrants.
  • Religion: largely Coptic Christian, mixed with local worship and Salamic influences.
  • Language: (WIP. Qubdic as Coptic language and Coptic alphabet.) The Qubdians are among a number of North Sahrabic tribes whose interactions with Aroman tribes beginning in the 8th century BCE resulted in cultural exchanges between these two large groups. As the Sahrabic alphabet had not yet been developed, they used the Aroman alphabet to write.
  • Education is aimed to be provided for free and to be in Qubdic language. But at the beginning of the republic, the teachers had to translate from the textbooks in other language to the Qubdic language.
