Lapliszna, officially the Jarldom of Lapliszna is a small country located on the northern eastern part of Borea. It's borders Syrtænzna, Blaskog and Kæra'zna. It's a developing country with a incredibly mixed result for standards of living and a struggling social welfare program. Standards for living and social welfare for government employees heavily differ from non-government employees. Concerns have been raised about the employment practices employed by the government with some civil rights organizations stating it heavily favors the elven minority. The government has countered these claims stating they hire who is best for the job regardless of species, releasing a barge of reports showing they have a significant Kemonomimi employment into the government. The government issued a statement that they're making attempts to further Nystapi employment by the government and creating several educational programs to assist with the objective. The economy is sizeable for an eastern Borean country with GDP measuring 67,000,000,000 UKR, primary exporting coal and rare earth minerals to Blaskog it's primary trade partner. Militarily speaking, the country roughly spends 8% of it's GDP, government citing the alleged large National Republicanists terrorist organization operating with in the country with ties to Hirdist ideology. The National Republicanist group has committed several mass shootings and bombings within the country, which the Esta the Protector heavily publicized on her various social media platforms.


For history of the Nystapi People: Nystapi People History

The Blåskovian government announced the creation of Lapliszna as a Nystapi ethnic majority Jarldom in 1972, and later was formally declared as independent in December, 1990. The exact reasoning behind the act of declaring Lapliszna as independent isn't clear, with the Blåskovian government giving different reasoning for it numerous times. However the most commonalty accepted reason was the Nystapi people's act of Niväk in the late 1700s, the closeness of the two ethnic groups, and the loyalty of the Nystapi leaders during the Borean Bush Conflicts in the 1920s-1940s. During the 1970s, the region now known as Lapliszna was considered to be unsuitable and too harsh for elven settlers, but it was decided that the Nystapi 'cultural collective ruggedness' would be perfect to settle the region. This was furthered by the interest in the potential for further oil and natural gas despots though this was proven to be false. However the discovery of diamonds, silver and gold in the early 2000s assist in the further development of the country.

Blåskovian government in the 1972 both announced the creation of the future Jarldom, but first removed the original Nystapi autonomous region in the northern reaches of Blaskog and the Blåskovian king announced the region will be first created into a 'Special Development & Autonomous Zone' for the Nystapi people. The special zone was given the same rights as the former Nystapi autonomous region, but with the added benefit of one-time payment moving to the region and subsidize construction of housing in the area. While the removal of the autonomous region was painful experience, the Blåskovian government made small effort to assist Nystapi families to move to the zone with the payments. First settlements was focused on the pre-existing villages and towns but later focused settlement on the known copper and coal deposits.

The period between 1972 to the late 2000s was known as the Nystapi renaissance, period of time more than lasting 30 years which caused a reinvention of the Nystapi culture and the creation of institutions. Ideals of self-governance, siblingly ties to Blåskovian culture, and a Nystapi Shrine Authority being reorganized became anew. Older ideals became replaced as millions of Nystapi across Borea moved to the region. Which the Blåskovian government saw as a positive. When the country became independent, it was given a care-taking government was managed by the Blaskog until 2014 when Esta the Protector was enshrined and coronated as the head of state of Lapliszna. Post-2014, the parliament was primary dominated by the Nystapi People's Party with Jonas Liljeström servicing as prime minister.

Nystapi Zone Period (1972 - 1990)

The period of when Blaskog, designated the former 'gränsprovins' (Codexian: Frontier Providence) as the 'Särskild utvecklings- och autonom zon' (Codexian: Special Development & Autonomous Zone) for the Nystapi People is more commonly just called the Nystapi Zone Period. During the period starting from 1972 to 1990, the Nystapi culture held a renaissance; massive mitigation across Borea of Nystapi moving to the region which includes the forced moving of Nystapi and Blaskovians to or away from the zone; Nystapi Shrine Authority reorganizing to better suit the coming changes both politically and culturally; and construction projects across the region. During the period, commenters at the time generally in particular Nystapi leaders approach the creation of the zone with a apprehension, as Blaskog abolished the Nystapi autonomous region at the same time as making the special zone. While they was overjoy by the aspect of being independent nation, many leaders cited concerns about the suitability of the land and the more importantly the abolishing of the autonomous zone, would destroy much of the generational wealth the Nystapi people acquired. While the Blåskovian government made some effort to assist the Nystapi people from the autonomous region to move to the area, it was enough to get to the Neylapdor. In addition, Nystapi living in the former autonomous zone was pressured by the government to sell their property and assets, often incases at prices below the market rate.

While migration was poorly handled by Blåskovian authorities, the construction projects with the focus on industrial sectors, utilities and transportation was mostly successful. Focus of the projects being the railways connecting various mining locations, and having them connect to the Blåskovian industrial parks as well a passenger trainline from Neylapdor to Kungstad. The majority of construction projects was managed by the controversial 'Central Myndighet för Utveckling och Bankverksamhet' (Codexian: Central Authority of Development and Banking), Blåskovian-ran economic planning organization, the other aspects such as housing, services and so forth was mainly done by international investments, Bjørn Trust, Association of the Servants of Akua and Nystapi ran-organizations. The Nystapi organizations in particular was made up of former residents of villages from the autonomous zone, pulling their resources together to have housing constructed or purchased. The Bjørn Trust and Norgsveltian investments focused on constructing various residential districts, service buildings as well cultural buildings having to work alongside the central planning agency to coordinate projects. Meanwhile Association of the Servants of Akua, while only focused religious or cultural structures such as building of shrines. While international investors like the Bjørn Trust wanted to construct power plants and factories within the zone. The central planning agency declined stating they will be receiving electricity from Blaskog and factories would be net-negative according to their reports. Planned cities were designed by Côtois experts, to much surprise by international observers at the time. The Côtois experts worked alongside international investors, Nystapi organizations and the state-planning agency.

Government and Politics


The Central Authority of Development and Banking is responsible for surveying and developing reports about the economy. Directing the state owned enterprises and investments in the economy, management of economic output, as well as managing the interest rate. The central body is heavily involved across all sectors, and the largest employer in the country outright. The CADB is under heavy scrutiny from Norgsveltian and Côtois observers for being a tool of neo-imperalism by Blaskog, although neither government has officially laid sanctions on the company due to political concerns relating to Esta the Protector role as a Enshrined Spirit.

Industrial and Luxury goods are always imported from Blaskog, aside from a handful of sectors produced within the country itself. The Nystapi and Blaskovian economies being linked within a 'less-than-equal' custom's union. Lapliszna heavily depending on Blaskog for industrial goods, and Lapliszna sending raw goods back.

Lapliszna, when compared to its neighbors of Nystatiszna, Gusanaszna and Syrtænzna has the most developed natural resource extraction operations. Although Nystatiszna in recent years has been rapidly catching up, and is expected to surpass massively Lapliszna within the coming year. The Jarldom produces plethora of minerals, which is exported to Blaskog at an extremely reduced market price. Minerals such as copper, cobalt, coal, silver and gold but not limited too such. Majority of diamonds extracted out of Borea, comes out of the country the closet competitor being Nystatiszna and Blaskog.

Outside of mineral extraction, agriculture employees makes up the bulk of employment for the country. Virtually all meat from animal husbandry comes from reindeer ranching, reindeer meat being socially and religious acceptable to consume for the Nystapi peoples. Reindeer meat being a top export and due to how wide spread Nystapi people are in East Borea, as well affordability of Reindeer meat when compared to meat from a cattle. From agricultural perspective, the most common crops grown and exported being various berries produced, such as Rokin berry which is used in native Borean wines. Borean spices and Ice-rice being a close top export next to Reindeer meat and Rokin-berries.

Reindeer furs are commonly used in clothing, and reindeer fur coats to Blaskog which is worn by the middle and upper class. Meanwhile the same furs are seen as commoner clothing for the masses in Lapliszna. The textile industry within Lapliszna primary uses furs, cotton and Borean Silk, although majority of textiles sold within the country originate from Blaskog rather than domestically produced.


Lapliszna has a developed cargo and passenger railway network, linking its industrial centers together and back to Blaskog proper. Railways are owned and managed by Central Authority Development and Banking. As part of the railway contract, requires any company that ships on its rails the CADB must be a part owner of the previously mention company. The highway network links between the capital to its major cities, and a single highway that links Neylapdor to Kungstad. Majority of the roads however are not paved, most villages and small towns still having dirt or untreated concrete roads.

Lapliszna is a net importer of electrical energy, having a shared grid with Blaskog although cables linking the two nations suffers from all manner of issues. Only the major cities have regular access to energy, and only Neylapdor has consistent access to power. Despite having the potential to power itself from hydroelectric and geo-thermal sources, with only minor assistance coming from coal power plants. The country still maintains its power from Blaskog despite issues and limitations with cabling. Power are all directed towards industry, such as mining operations and agricultural production aside from the capital which is always fully powered.

Virtually speaking, all citizens are able to have access and regularly listen to radio broadcasts. Only 58% of citizens have access television broadcasts, but power backouts result in broadcasts being limited and only truly fully usable during weekends regularly. Internet usage in the country is extremely limited, with less than half million people having semi-regular access to it but still is considered advanced by Eastern Borean standards.
