Korpiceia has a very unique political system, with the voting population being the main legislative body and having great control of the country's resources, both in regional and national levels. The elected government is a complimentary body to the Popular Initiative (also reffered to as "Popular Will"), though it can at very special situations have more authority, but such a thing hasn't occured to date. The current Prime Minister is Alexios Pyrros, who was elected in the 2021 elections.

The relations between Korpiceia and its closer neighbours are complicated, but are heavily redrawn in recent times, as Korpiceia had difficulty establishing deep relations due to its economical problems it has been facing for centuries now. The warmest relations would be the ones with Sayyed and Mirhaime, but recently Korpiceia has been trying to increase its global presence.

The capital, Kamareia, is a city of approximatelly a million people, according to 2020 estimates. It posseses the nations' biggest commercial and touristic port as well as its biggest shipyard and naval military base. It is the center of trade, banking, finance and is the office center for many of the major companies in the country.

The Korpiceian economy is based in two sectors: trading and agriculture, as it has for most of the country's history. Another historical sector would be banking which, while it may not be as mighty as it used to be centuries ago, it is making a resurgence in the last decade, as the country tries to rebuild its economic power, regain stability and become one of the powerhouses in the region.

Korpiceia as a country has existed ever since the 14th century, as a colony of some Paldic nation, whose location is presumed to be in eastern Novaris.


Korpiceia is a small country with an area of about 46 thousand square kilometers (or 18 thousand square miles). It is fairly thin and the land mostly consists of plains and valleys. Its altitude is relatively low, but always above sea level. On the eastern parts of the country, there are higher altitudes and the terrain becomes hilly and in parts mountainous, but still relatively low compared to other nations.

Korpiceia's rivers are shallow, mostly short but have very big currents. The largest river is the River Amphrysos, which flows from the northeast, into the capital of Kamareia and finishes in the cape to the southeast.

The highest point in Korpiceia would be Mount Ouros (even though its status as one is disputed among geologists), which is found in the south of the country, about 50 kilometers east of the city of Molyndos. Its elevation is 1858,72 m. or 6.098,2 ft.

The islands in the northwest of the mainland (excluding the Minoos Island, located only a few miles east of the northern areas) are called the "Chamila Islands" (Χαμηλές νήσοι - Literally translates to "low" islands) and are particularly arid. The largest city and capital of the island complex is the city of Anylos (whose name literally means "the one with no trees". Lack of trees is a remarkable characteristic of the Korpiceian isles), which is located in the Lotophagus island,


32% of Korpiceian land is arable, with much of the crops produced being exported, since the national needs are easily covered, making food imports to Korpiceia very minimal. This percentage has been a huge change, as only in 2020 the percentage of arable land was determined to be closer to 20%. This massive turn towards agriculture has been favored by the Initiative and popularized by the 2021 elected Alexios Pyrros. In the same way, stock farming has been very popularised, especially in the south of the country, since 2022. The production of meat/poultry, eggs and dairy products has upsized a substantial 122% and a trend of producing traditional products, such as "Almyrotyro" and many others, is growing more and more popular within Korpiceian consumers.

Fish and sea products have always been one of the biggest industries in Korpiceia, and one where the people are very highly skilled. Yearly, 157,2 tonnes of fish are farmed or fished in the country's seas.

The Korpiceian south is rich in many metals and minerals such as iron, gold, lithium, manganese, but lead can be found in abundance, hence the city of Molyndos having its name (lead is "molyvdos"/"μόλυβδος" in Paldic but also "μόλυντος" means dirty). Mining has also grown since 2020, though there have been many unfavourable reactions, especially regarding lead mining deeming the mining operations as unecological and harmful for stock and crops.

Administrative regions

Korpiceia is divided in 5 administrative regions ("Διοικητικές περιφέρειες", most commonly refered to as "περιφέρειες"):

  • Pamonias, the most populous one with its center in Kamareia
  • Omoronon, which contains Minoos Island and the north western areas
  • Chamilon Nison, consisting of the Chamila Islands
  • Denyrou, who covers most of the central areas
  • Oryktou, the second most populous located in the south of the country

The regions act as political entities, with the Initiative being divided between regions (and then between settlements) for ease of measuring votes and for voting on parliament officials, who strictly represent their own region and must be citizens of it. They aren't totally utilitarian, as slight cultural differences have been noted between regions in the past, especially when it comes to dialects, with every region and possibly even smaller areas speaking a faintly distinct dialect of Paldic.
