My nation is East Essenland, an ultra-authortarian nation ruled by a military dicator. Formerly, Essenland was unified with the West, but after the loss of World War, the people in the East blamed the Goverment for compromising and the loss of the war. Many people believed the war could've been won but has ben betrayed by the goverment, so the Essenland entered a peroid of Civil war with the West defending the goverment and blaming the military and the East vice versa. The civil war ended with a armistice (such as the Koreas) and espionage is common between both sides. The conflict de-esclated into a cold war between the two Essenlands.

My nation is the Kingdom of Carpathia, it's a large, incredibly wealthy and technologically sophisticated constitutional monarchy with a slight twist. The Carpathian Monarch holds more powers that RW constitutional monarchs and she is one of the most powerful world leaders as a result.

Carpathia is a society which is socially liberal while maintaining strict standards of etiquette we also operate a policy of liberal eugenics.

We were one of the first nations on Gaea to industrialise and we remain one of the most powerful nations on the planet, politically, economically and in terms of our military. We have overseas dependencies, a legacy from the Great Carpathian Empire and our national language, Selonian, is the primary global language and is the dominant language or in some instances even the required international language of communications, science, information technology, business, seafaring, aviation, entertainment, radio and diplomacy. The language originated on Novia, in the nations of Carpathia and Amagosa.

My Nation is the United Commonwealth of Amagosa, considered to be one of the most powerful countries in Gaea, and a world leader in international politics. Amagosa is a former monarchy with a rich royal history, only within the last 200 years or so of its very long history did it become a more democratic state. Currently Amagosa boasts a bilateral legislature, the Commonwealth Parliament, and the Senate, which is traditionally the more educated house. The nation has a President as Head of State, with a Prime Minister as more of a domestic leader, and in charge of the legislature.

Amagosa is also unique in that it is technically two different nations. The eastern half is more of the western ideals Amagosa nation, while the west is lead by the First Nation, the indigenous population of the west. The First Nation has self autonomy in domestic affairs with its area, however the First Nation is also included within the government of Amagosa as a whole.

Amagosa is the second largest nation on Gaea, and we have the largest border agreements of any nation, with Carpathia to the south, and the possible future Atlantica to the north. Carpathia and Amagosa share a close relationship with each other, and has become the solitary voice of Novia for the better part of this century. While Carpathia is the leader in innovations of technology, Amagosa has shown itself as a scientific powerhouse, with a sophisticated space program and the leader in scientific discovery.

My nation is the Kingdom of Maraemo, located in southern Uberia in what was initially known as Palermo. It is a former colonial power, which descended into a civil war in the decolonisation era. After the civil war, the country became a deeply patriarchal and traditional absolute monarchy as the ruling family crushed all political opposition (pro-democracy campaigners and principalities alike) and dominated everything in the country.
The principalities united to form a revolutionary army after years of repression, that defeated the monarchy and created a federal state, made up of self-governing principalities. However it is still a patriarchal state with the national religion dominating lives and traditional values still a core part of life in the kingdom.

My Nation is The People's Republic of Zhonghua. Zhonghua is a One-party, socialist republic with the Zhonghua Communist Party in power.

Zhonghua is the third largest nation on Gaea and has a population in excess of 1.5 billion. Zhonghua is the third largest and fastest growing economy on Gaea. The country has become Gaea's workshop with all manner of goods being manufactured including; clothes, electronics, toys, food and automobiles.

We are an up-and coming superpower with the President named one of the most powerful people on Gaea, along with many other high-profile political figures. Zhonghua has a large sphere of influence in many parts of developing Gaea including its larger neighbour to the north, Pavlovsk, providing the isolated communsit nation with consumer goods, technology and foreign currency in turn for expertise, raw materials and energy.

My nation is the Federal Union of Eisenhower, Capital: Sterling. Located in northern Novia, Eisenhower is one of the most industrious country in Novia. Eisenhower is unified by the Winthrop Accords of 1801-1805, forming a unitary state comprising of Sterling, Fulton, Nodland and New Essen. Eisenhower is considered a world superpower with its mighty industrial heart, a very disciplined military and strong centralized government.

Eisenhower is unique as it is based on 1930s-1940s American culture. The Kessel-Skelton Homeland Industry and Consumerism Act of 1911 ensures that most services and goods that are used in the country, are made in Eisenhower, making the country almost entirely self-sustaining with unemployment nearly nonexistant. This also limits outside influence on Eisenhower culture. The northern Arctic regions are comprised of mainly industrial cities while the south is comprised of massive factory farms.

There are two branches of government, The Court of Law and The Chamber. The Chamber consists of representatives from the four states with an executive seat for an elected individual (Chief-Executive) that has control over all governmental establishments. The Court of Law along with the Eisenhower populace keeps The Chamber and the Chief Executive in check. Eisenhower notable values comprises of Liberty, Discipline and Unity.
Eisenhower is currently engaged in a small scale technological arms race with Amagosa.

Ušú-kalam is a federal constitutional elective monarchy consisting of eleven ensiates situated in southwestern Orientia. For those not in the know, an ensiate is a territory ruled by an ensi, which is broadly equivalent to a principality or emirate. The country covers 515,000km² and has a population of just over 27 million. The capital and largest city is Zanakeš, and the official language is uǧasaǧi.

The country is very old, being at the southern end of the cradle of civilisation that is the Akala-Idazi basin, and has been inhabited for almost 9,000 years. Over the years, the area has mostly been a patchwork of warring city-states and short-lived empires, interspersed with periods under Atridic, Teispean, Temujid, and Edernic rule. My current history involves independence from a colonial power in the mid 20th century, although none of the Arrogant Imperialist Bastards have offered yet.

The people are a diverse bunch, with two dominant ethnic groups, the northern Kalamans and southern Telmarenes. The two have lived side by side for so long that there isn't really much difference between them any more, either physically or culturally. The vast majority of Ušúris are adherents of the ancient Annunakine faith.

Geographically, the country is very arid and hilly in the interior, although some of the coastal regions, and particularly the Idazi delta around Darišé, are fertile and intensively farmed. Significant oil reserves are found throughout the country, and mineral deposits are also mined.

Later history and foreign relations will be influenced by whichever AIB comes visiting, so thats all a little up in the air.

The military is not large by world standards, but well equipped, well drilled, and possibly a little trigger happy. It is also well balanced between the Kalaman-influenced warrior ethos of the army, the Telmarene-inspired seafaring prowess of the navy, and the air force, which is seen as an extension of both groups. Overall, the armed forces have a somewhat inflated view of the importance of the country internationally.

There is a bit more info here if you're interested.

My Nation is the Derwookly Republic. A small nation located at the eastern most end of Imensia. With a rather diverse climate ranging from tropical to tropical desert to tropical mountains (so diverse). The small protion of Imensia is practically blanketed in a thick and lush rain forest that sustains a majority of the remote peoples. With a population of just 9 million and only two really substantially sized cities, Derwookly is very undeveloped and remote.

Culturally, Derwookly is incredibly varied with hundreds of small "tribes" going about their traditional business up in the mountains and along some particularly poisonous beaches (did I mention the poisonous fish? a lot of the beaches here have them...but when cooked right are nice) without so much as a hint of care for the outside world. Some of them don't even know it exists. This counts for around 1% of the peoples in the nation. 32% live in a few smallish towns scattered throughout, these towns populations rarely go over 10'000 and most have limited services. Some even lack electricity. Then the remaining 66% live in the two major cities, Katan and Parmery. One having just 2 million residents and the other 4 million (respectively) The differences between the two are very apparent as one is located very close to the border in some hilly plains and some of the first recorded evidence of terrace farming for the world. The other near the tip and deep in the thick of the rain forests, with a large fishing industry and to some other countries dismay, a very wealthy whaling industry.

The official language is Derdgin, but many people simply speak Derlonian, A weird hybrid language that arose from many people being bilingual in both Derdgin and Selonian for many years...and they sorta blended into one. If yo speak only Selonian, you would understand Derlonian but find it hilarious. Same with the inverse. (Think Pidgin + English = Pinglish, it exists. And it is awesome)

The military by world standards...is pretty pathetic. What the lose in numbers they more than make up for in creativity however, as it would be incredibly hard to invade this country with it's world renowned mountain infantry, incredibly large anti aircraft guns stationed throughout both major cities (built during the WW2 period for fear of being invaded by air) and talks of an aircraft carrier being built. But that's just speculation.

Ethnically, the country is not so diverse. The peoples are a very standard bunch. Practicing either traditional tribal values, or religions brought from overseas by travelers. Not many took hold though, because everyone was already practicing Eganarianism, a curious religion that teaches people to be happy at all costs. Be it jeopardising another persons happiness in the process or doing something incredibly bad for you that makes you happy. (IE, narcotics, smoking and dubstep) Although over time it has evolved so that it constitutes making others happy as well as yourself. Because the tribal wars...were not fun.

Historically, this area is very VERY old, dating back a good 100000 years (that's the earliest signs, it could have been earlier) Albeit with almost no form of civilasation (by standards, they had manners Razz ) until the 1600's, with it only really taking off in the 1800's. Tribal cave painting, burial grounds and traces of metal working can be found scattered throughout the mountains and forests if you look hard enough.

Also, not that the country does have it's fair share of problems, like having the worlds worst reputation for hepatitis and other assorted nasties. And having a generally lower than average quality of life, considered second world to many. It still has problems with internal warring and extremism.

Politically, the country is a unique revolving monarchy, with two completely separate royal families that bid for votes every few years. They control funding and taxes. Underneath that is the actual political parties which are leftist and rightist in nature with no in between. (there are 3 lefty parties and 2 righty ones, none with any clear lead)

My nation is the Empire of Asshai. We are a imperial dynasty that is run by the current Swann dynasty after having taken the Asshai homeland back. Asshai control the large island and the smaller ones surrounding it that lies to the east of Zhoughua. The islands are a temperate climate with a mountain range on the main island and many great fishing ports.

The Empire of Asshai is a rising power on the world stage after having reclaimed it's homeland after a hundred years of being a colony. We are now not only the world's leading exporter in fish and other seafoods, but we are also the leading exporter in cars with the two companies, Iota and Uzamaki. Our military has come back strong with the acquisition of modern arms. Asshai is also leading the charge into the future of warfare with a new technology being produced by the engineering division of the government.

Asshai is also known throughout the world as the home of the religion of Shadowism. The Temple of Shadows in the city of Kage is the seat of this mysterious, polytheistic religion that is widely practiced throughout Asshai. The Emperor of Asshai is also the Supreme Priest of the Shadows, so the religion and government of Asshai have been fused together.

Also inviting other outside members really made the move more successful as well.

Wagari Country. Wagarianskaja Federation. A democratical country, speaking Wagarsk (Russian language). Capital is city of Jaroval. Major nationalities are Wagarians, Kavokians (3 sub groups in it) and smaller nationalitie living in oblasts (States) and republics of the federation.

The country is a growing country, after the collapse of the Imperial Wagari, the country is fasing problems with collapsing population, population leaving villages to cities and industry still fasing problems. Right now the country is living in times of change and we will here see if the country goes to democracy or to dictatorship and it full collapse.

This is the land of dirty capitalism, of possibilities and of lost generation.

Hope you like the idea, of course it will be more written in the application.
