The Savaian Alliance is the organization established from the agreement made by the nations of Ajerrin, Indragiri, New Timeria and later Songdang, in the The Treaty of Neighbors. It is lead by the Savaian Council and is made up of the various political, economic, legal, and cultural organizations created by the Council. The Alliance brings together more than 312 million people from the four nations and their combined $3.5 trillion dollars of GDP. The goal of the Savaian Alliance is to bring together members politically and economically in order to enrich Savai and increase the prosperity of all its citizens.

History

Early Beginnings

The Island of Savai for most of its history has been riddled and corrupted by war, greed and chaos. For the longest time, the current state of Indragiri has had dozens of wars between the Unified Kingdom of the Indra and the Kingdom of Giri. Creating an alliance in these days proved to be impossible, with conflicting parties eager to force their opinions, ideas and rules on others. Because of this, the Island of Savai was a dangerous place to begin with. The population never had a real chance to develop until only recently, hence why the southern portion of Savai is underpopulated when compared to more developed and stable nations in Catai and Asura.

The path to stability in the island was first achieved in 1868 with the conquering of the Kingdom of the Giri by Indra forces. However, this kingdom was short lived, and the Giri rebelled in 1905 and formed the then defunct Kingdom of Giri. Wars were rampant once more in the island, however, with the advent of modern weapons, military techniques and abilities, the cost of war doubled or even tripled, and casualties were reaching an all time high. To prevent the two kingdoms from fighting each other again, the One State Solution Plan Comission (OSSPC) created the One State Solution in 1942, which was supposed to unify the two kingdoms once and for all. An indefinite ceasefire was put on in 1942, and the unification process began. The two countries were unified in 1949 and ended a war which has been ravaging for thousands of years.

Ajerrin during the period of instability in Indragiri stayed a colony of the Chen Empire, but it too was ravaged with rebellions and uprisings against the Chen Empire, the biggest one happening in 1899. The Ajerr'i and Lahu'i Kingdoms led a massive army in 1899 to confront the Chen, which at the time was a young empire. Between the massive resistance and a change in Chen leadership, the colonized lands were overrun and left unchallenged as of 1904. In 1905 the Confederation of Ajerr'i was formed as a loose alliance between Ajerr'i, Lahu'i, Endik'l and Er'in'a kingdoms, but soon the Confederation devolved into internal strife. In 1941 a coup by Chief Likoka of the Lahu'i Tribe led to the establishment of the Lahu'i Kingdom. The result was a half a century long civil war between the absolutist state and federation forces led by the Ajerr'i clashed. Peace was regained in 1997.

New Timeria also battled with instability in the early 1900s as a corrupted oligarchy and troubled democracy. Before the democratic revolution in 1934 the nation was ruled by a council made up of elders from various villages. While this system worked for New Timeriafor centuries the new flow of currency and growth of the nation led to widespread corruption and instability. On February 16th, 1934 students from the University of Eastern Timeria started a revolution to overthrow the elder government. With the support of various young officers and neglected tribes, they managed to unite the country with little fighting and the conflict only produced 2 major battles. After 1934 things were far from perfect as wide-scale wealth inequality and under development in some regions plagued the nation. At one point the Village of Kitsune threate to declare independence if a change was not seen. In 1936 the Timerian constitution was adopted.

No alliance between the three nations was possible with Indragiri and Ajerrin having their own internal conflicts.

The Cold War Era

The 1980s saw Indragiri turn into a socialist state which suppressed separatist movements and conflicts, leading to the most stable period in Indragirian history. However, by the 1990s, conditions on the island have replenished and have become very stable. Indragiri, Ajerrin and New Timeria were possibly for the first time in history where all nations were at peace internally and externally. The Island has already suffered too much, and world leaders applaud the peace that was created by the three nations. Many experts have argued that to keep the ongoing peace, a supranational alliance would have been needed.

In the 1960s and 1970s, The absolutionist Lahu'i state and the Socialist Federation of Indragiri became close partners and allies, supporting each other in times of war, need and plenty. The two helped in the Cheonsam war that happened in the 1950s, marking the heights of the Aeian Cold War. Although so, Indragiri remained fairly neutral in world policies, only supporting the Lahu'i state in international matters. In 1995, however, all ties from the Socialist Federation of Indragiri were broken with the Lahu'i state after the Lahu'i state insulted the nation's flag and people while enslaving rural farmers in the Jayawijaya province in Eastern Indragiri to chop forests in the Ajerr'i state, Ajerrin.

The civil war in Ajerrin played a huge part in modern Ajerri and Indragirian politics, economy and way of life.

The Indragirian leader at that time, Sumartono Sastrowidyatmo, did not want to have an alliance with anyone, as he saw Indragiri to be for Indragirians only. The idea of an alliance was once again diminished. Sumartono died in 2004, paving yet another path towards a supranational alliance for the Island. Embassies opened in Ambarawa, the capital of Indragiri, which led to the slow and gradual opening of Indragiri towards the outside world.

Early Alliance

In early of 2011, leaders of the three countries first met together, creating huge impacts on the three nations. They have discussed business opportunities, work, travel and immigration laws to strengthen the island's position in Aeia. Eventually, a supranational organization was needed by the three to achieve their ultimate goal. A team of anthropologists, sociologists and economists were gathered by the three nations to conduct surveys, studies and research to show eligibility of an alliance between the three nations. More and more treaties were signed between the three nations, leading to the speculation of many that an alliance may soon be formed.

Demographics

The combined population of the 4 members of the Savaian Alliance is roughly 312 million people. The vast majority of the citizens in the Community are from New Timeria. The population density of the area varies widely among different regions and systems across the land, with the northern portion of the continent being more densely populated while the inner mountains having some of the most extreme climate and weather of the region being the most sparsely populated. Indragiri has the lowest population density of the three member states with a density lower than 10 people per square kilometer.

Ethnic Groups

Many ethnic groups inhabit the region, with the most notable groups being the Timerians, Songdangin, Indra, Giri and the Kawanakan Tribe. Historically, the ethnic groups are not known to maintain peace with each other, however, the late 20th century has brought an end to this tradition to the point of the creation of the TSA. The ethnic groups are now at peace with each other and have united under each nations' respective government, although minor separatist movements may exist within borders of each member state. Vibrant cultures, traditions and languages color the region which makes the TSA a fascinating and unique alliance in Aeia.

Many languages are also spoken among the inhabitants of the alliance, including Timerian, Indra, Parengan, Giri, Songdangin, and Kawanakan.

Vital Statistics

Politics

Economics

The Savaian Alliance has many joint projects aimed at increasing economic opportunity for its citizens and increasing the prosperity of member nations.

Financial Markets

The Parties shall align the national stock exchanges to create a regional exchange, the Savaian Stock Exchange (SSE), to buy and sell shares of stock, bonds and other securities. The Exchange will provide facilities for issue and redemption of securities and capital events including payment of income and dividends. The Exchange will act as a continuous auction market with buyers and sellers making transactions at a central location in addition to electronic communication.

Currency

Currencies of parties affiliated in this treaty shall be put into a currency basket, and create a simplified exchange system for the ease of converting and doing business in member nations. Currently, there are four currencies circulating within the borders of the alliance, the New Timerian Beam in New Timeria, the Indragirian Rupiah in Indragir, the Songdangin Won in Songdang, and the Ajerri Dollar in Ajerrin. After the currencies would be put into a basket, the currencies would act more as one entity rather than four separate ones, which would increase both the demand and stability of each of the currencies without having to expend a lot of money.

The currencies of the TSA will be exchangeable in every currency exchange throughout the alliance, whereas before the alliance, one must have to go inside the country of destination to change their currency into the local currency.

Single Market

The Savaian Alliance is the strong economic market in Aeia. The market accounts for nearly $3.5 trillion in GDP in trade and is one of the largest consumer goods market in the world. Trade moves across the borders of the Savaian Alliance freely with reduced waited times for inspections and no tariffs. The people of the alliance can enter other TSA nations freely and engage in tourism, commerce, and educational and work experiences.
