Skoskie, officially the Holyn Overseas Collective Territory of Skoskie, is a Holyn colony in western Sayuin Navron. Its capital is Mundosa, a city with a population of 8 million. Skoskie has a territory of over 937,191 square kilometers. It is a multi ethnic society, with various slavic nationalities and native Navronian groups. As of the 2019 census, it has a population of 18,102,341 people. Skoskie borders Corvic Navron, Tichone, Kifathe and West Wrutesh. The western coast leads to the Central Ocean.
Skoskie was a colony of the Holyn Kingdom from 1824 to 1927, when Skoskie became an independent state in the aftermath of the Holyn revolution. It became an overseas territory of Holynia in 2001 after the fall of communism.
Supporters of the monarchy fled to Skoskie and established the Kingdom of Hornats and Masovs in Skoskie. The Kingdom initially became highly centralized until the death of Kováč II in 1931. His succesor, Robert III, relinquished most powers and became a figurehead.
The local Navronian population suffered as the white Slavic population grew dramatically in the aftermath of the Holyn revolution and other Speran revolutions. Skoskie's politics were based around monarchist parties, slavic supremecist parties and liberal parties.
Skoskie's native black Navronian population were granted limited rule, such as a seperate legal system. Free areas were established in 1939, where black citizens were granted equal treatment to white slavs. Other parts of the country, including Port Provmek, were designated as "slavic only" areas.
Throughout the 20th century, the white slavic population in Skoskie continued to grow, but by 1970 would be outpaced by the local Navronian population. In the 1980s, as other Speran colonies in Navron faced uprisings and revolts, Skoskie was relatively peaceful. The local Navronian population were granted enfranchisement, with the ability to elect members to parliament.
In 1999, negotiations began between Holynia and Skoskie about possible reunification. In 2001, both sides agreed to reunification, with Skoskie returning as an Overseas Territory of Holynia. Further political freedoms have been granted to the black Skoskie population since the 2003 Overseas Act. Black Skoskie citizens are granted the same rights as white Slavs.
Skoskie is the sole overseas territory of Holynia. Its status grants it limited autonomy, however certain matters remain under control of the national Holyn government. The Skoskie Council has the ability to pass laws within specific devolved powers under the Constitution. These laws require review by the Skoskie Committee of the Narodna Rada in Cizekporok and Royal Assent by the monarch. The territory is developed, with extensive infrastructure and high income jobs. The economy of Skoskie is largely reliant on copper, diamond and gold mining and its related exports. Other industries such as manufacturing and banking grew in the 20th century to support mineral exports.
