The Grand Duchy of Nagato (GDN), commonly known as Nagato (NAG), formerly referred to as the Nagatoian Grand Duchy (NGD), is a sovereign country located in the middle of the Sea of Gondwana. The county shares a land border with the United Order Republic to the south in eastern Nagato. With an area of 474,326.31 km2 (183,138.41 sq mi), Nagato is the 11th largest country on Gondwana and the 45th largest country on Urth. As of 2020, Nagato has a population of 34,021,230, an estimated increase of 5.3% from 2010. Codexian and Genesi make up the majority of the languages spoken. The population is mainly Nagatoian, followed by the native Genesi, and other nationalities. Nagato is one of five sovereign nations that has two capitals: the executive capital and largest city by area is Akai Machi while the legislative capital and largest city by population is Castella.
The first civilizations of East Unovia Island and Unovian Tail were made up of small pockets of felines that dotted the coast 1.6 million years ago. Following several glacial period floodings and the eruption of Chargestone Caldera, more than 96% of all life died along with 99% of the feline population. Eventually, the feline population died out by the ensuing volcanic winter. The early years of the 4th century BCE saw the first instance of humans from what would later be known as Augustia and Vessarlian. Between the 1st and 4th century CE, the kingdoms of East Unovia became unified under the Republic of Gensi based in Akai Machi, while the kingdoms of Unovian Tail unified under the newly formed Empire of Augustia based in Kingsford. Beginning in the 10th century, political power for the two nations was held by a series of dictators and lords in Gensi and dukes in Augustia.
In 1700, the Kingdom of Nagato became a nation-state when Empress Edelgard of Augustia signed The Nagato Act creating a nation for all Nagatoians in the Western Territory of Augustia. By 1706, Nagato overthrew the government of the Republic of Gensi from East Unovia Island and annexed the islands that made up the republic. After a 10-year civil war between resistance members of Gensi and the government of Nagato, the country was reunified in 1716 under the Strasberg government, which enacted an isolationist foreign policy. In 1864, a Great Morstaybishlia fleet forced Nagato to open trade to the East, which led to the end of the Strasberg government and the adoption of an Eastern-modeled constitution and pursuit of a program of industrialization and modernization.
In 1941, Robert Kelly seized control of the Kingdom by overthrowing Queen Noizi and becoming Chancellor of the Imperial State of Nagato (1941–1945). Over the next four years, the Kingdom Resistance Army, reorganized as the Duchy of Nagato (1941–1945), fought the Imperial State in the Nagatoian Civil War. After the war ended with a Duchy victory, the Imperial State was annexed to create the Grand Duchy of Nagato on 16 April 1945. Under the 1950 constitution, Nagato has maintained a unitary parliamentary semi-constitutional monarchy with a unicameral legislature, the National Council.
Nagato is a regional power in Gondwana, a middle power in international affairs, and an emerging global power. Nagato's economy is the fourth largest in Gondwana, the 25th-largest in the world by nominal GDP, and 25th-largest by PPP. Nagato is often referred to as the Heart of Gondwana owing to its large population and economy. It is a founding member of the Inter Regional Security Accords, Council of Gondwana, Unovian Commonwealth, and is a permanent member of the International Forum. Nagato ranks high in international measures of economic freedom, quality of life, education, human rights, and universal health care, while also having low levels of corruption.
The name Nagato first came from Augustians who lived in the Western Territory of Augustia (present-day eastern Nagato). Many saw it as their right to claim the land across the Unovian Channel from Augustia and felt that the Augustian Government was holding them back. By 1625, several high-ranking leaders in the territory started calling themselves “Nags”, shorthand for “Non-Augustians”, and used it as a way to rally all the citizens to the cause for autonomy. Many officials in the Augustian Government used the term “Nags” to separate them from the rest of the Augustian population on census reports and official documents.
In 1698, King Ionius II of House Hresvelg of Augustia died, leaving the throne to his oldest daughter, Edelgard. Edelgard, unlike her father, saw the Nags plight for autonomy as one of her father’s weaknesses. In her 10-Year-Plan, Edelgard laid out her plan to give up the Western Territory of Augustia to the Nags, in exchange they would keep all seaports free for all Augustian ships. The Nagato Act, as it was called, would create a nation for all Nags, who at this point became known as Nagatoians. The act was finalized and was signed into law on 1 June 1700 creating the Kingdom of Nagato.
Prehistory (before 6th century BCE)
The oldest traces of life in what is now Nagato date back approximately 1.6 million years ago with early felines. Over the ensuing millennia, felines were confronted by a harsh and variable climate, marked by several glacial periods. Early felines led a nomadic hunter-gatherer life. Nagato has a large number of decorated caves from the mid-Stone Age, including one of the most famous and best-preserved, Yamoto Caves (approximately 23,000 BCE). During the last glacial period (approximately 19,650 BCE), Chargestone Supervolcano erupted with a Volcanic Explosivity Index of 8. The eruption was so devastating that it blocked out the sun around the world for almost a decade and possibly a 1,000-year-long cooling episode. This has led to the Chargestone catastrophic theory which caused a population bottleneck of 95.7% of all life on Gondwana and acted as a “soft reset” for the continent.
In mid-18,000 BCE, humans began to arrive in Nagato from what would later be known as Augustia and Vessarlian. This migration is thought to have happened due to other species invading or in search of warmer water. Since there wasn’t a dominant species in Nagato, human settlement began without any conflict from outside sources.
At the end of the last glacial period (9,000 BCE), the climate became milder. As the center of Gondwana was filling up with water from glacial melt, the land started to shrink to present-day coastlines. Around 7,000 BCE, Central Gondwana entered the Neolithic era and its inhabitants became sedentary. After strong demographic and agricultural development between the 4th and 3rd millennia, metallurgy appeared at the end of the 3rd millennium, initially working with copper and bronze, as well as later iron. Nagato has numerous megalithic sites from the Neolithic period, including the exceptionally dense Akai stones site (approximately 3,300 BCE). Around this time diamonds were first discovered deep in the cliffs of Chargestone Caldera. Early humans used diamonds for worship and to decorate themselves for style and power.

Fall of the Kingdom
By 1941, the Kingdom of Nagato was collapsing. Queen Noizi’s power was being limited by Prime Minister Robert Kelly after the passing of the Emergency Powers Act, which allowed Kelly to remain Prime Minister long after the expiration of his elected terms. Queen Noizi, knowing her time was limited, sent her three children to Augustia, where they will be safe with the Augustian King and his family. Unbeknownst to the Queen, Kelly started to develop a plan to overthrow the monarch and establish himself as the Dictator of Nagato. With a victory in sight, declared himself the leader of the newly formed New Order (party).
On 19 September 1941, Queen Noizi and her staff met with Kelly and his allies to discuss the future of Nagato at Parliament. Although it was closed door, the meeting only lasted ten minutes. Sources have said that Kelly demanded that she step down as Queen and for himself to become the leader of Nagato. The Queen, having none of it, came up with an alternative: Kelly would stay as Prime Minister for life and she would stay in power, but only as a figurehead. Kelly huddled around his group. Within a minute, they stood up, pushed in their chair, and collectively said, “No.” They then proceeded to leave the room. Astonished, Queen Noizi had a sinking feeling that their meeting was the last time they would see them peacefully.
When she got back to the Royal Palace, Queen Noizi started to pack whatever she could to escape Castella, Langley. Day turned into night fast. As she was leaving her room, an attendant came to the door and told her the worst news she had ever heard: The New Order is marching towards the palace.
Several hours before, Kelly, along with his allies and supporters, discussed what to do next in the east wing of the Parliament building. With many high-ranking military figures on his side, they discussed the ultimate plan: Overthrow the Monarch. Equipped with Type 99 rifles and attached were Type 30 bayonets, Kelly led his allies and supporters through the streets of Castella towards the Queen’s Residence, urging anyone not happy with the Queen to join the rebelling.

Nagatoian Golden Era (1945 - 1999)
Contemporary period (2000 - present)
East Unovia Island, as well as North and West Unovia Islands are part of the Unovian Arc, which was formed by volcanic activity initiated at an undersea magma source called the Unovia Hotspot. The process is continuing to build islands; the tectonic plate beneath much of the Unovia Sea continually moves southwest and the hot spot remains stationary, slowly creating new volcanoes. Mount Coronet, a volcano on Ryouko Island, is the tallest mountain in Nagato at 5,683 meters (18,645 feet) tall. Chargestone Caldera, located on East Unovia Island, southeast of Bridgeport, Nagato, is the site of the last supervolcanic eruption in Gondwana (approximately 19,650 BCE) with a Volcanic Explosivity Index of 8.
During the last glacial period (approximately 19,650 BCE), Chargestone Supervolcano erupted with a Volcanic Explosivity Index of 8. The eruption was so devastating that it blocked out the sun around the world for almost a decade and possibly a 1,000-year-long cooling episode. This has led to the Chargestone catastrophic theory that due to the eruption, caused a population bottleneck in 95.7% of all life on Urth and acted as a “soft reset”.
According to the Köppen climate classification, most of Nagato has a temperate oceanic climate (or Do type), which features warm summers, and wet winters with frequent overcast and cloudy skies. Many laws strictly forbid damaging natural habitats, keeping most beaches in the country's natural state, all the while attracting many tourists. Eco-tourism is highly encouraged by the government, with most hotels opting for a healthy mix of nature and the enjoyment of their guests.

Nagato has been a center of Gondwanan cultural development for centuries. Many Nagatoian artists have been among the most renowned of their time; Nagato is still recognized in Gondwana for its rich cultural tradition.
Nagatoian culture is best described as a mix of Nagatoian ingenuity for the arts and culture and Gensi resourcefulness for the betterment of all that lives. This mix has caused a noticeable divide in Nagato when culture is brought up. Nagatoian culture makes up the vast majority in Eastern Nagato, while on East Unovia Island and the surrounding islands, Gensi culture is much more prominent. Ever since meeting one another, both cultures have learned to coexist with one another, and in doing so made each other better. Nowadays, both cultures are seen as one entity, which is also made up of other cultures like Unovian, Vessarlan, Morstaybishlian, and Tretridian.
Traditional Nagatoian-Gensi arts include crafts such as pottery, textiles, and swordmaking; performances of puppeteering, dance, and storytelling; and other practices, tea ceremony, flower arrangments, martial arts, calligraphy, hot springs, and games. Nagato has a developed system for the protection and promotion of both tangible and intangible cultural properties and national treasures through the Ministry of Culture. The Ministry of Culture has been very active since its creation in 1957, granting subsidies to artists, promoting Nagatoian culture in the world, supporting festivals and cultural events, and protecting historical monuments. The Nagatoian government also succeeded in maintaining a cultural exception to defend audiovisual products made in the country.
Nagatoians have traditionally been characterized by a strong work ethic, competitiveness, and individualism, as well as a unifying belief in emphasizing liberty, equality, private property, and democracy. Nagatoians are extremely charitable by global standards: according to a 2020 Morstaybishlian study, Nagatoians gave 1.8% of its GDP to charity, more than any other nation studied.
The history of Nagatoian painting exhibits synthesis and competition between native Nagatoian esthetics and imported ideas. The interaction between Nagatoian and Gondwanan art has been significant: for example, woodblock prints, which began to be exported in the 19th century in the movement known as Nagism, had a significant influence on the development of modern art in the East, most notably in Great Morstaybishlia.
Judo is widely known as Nagato’s national sport. Created in 1885 by Kano Jiro and Kyuzo Miza, Judo was used as a form of exercise by the Gensi of East Unovia Island. Many teachers of Judo, like Jiro and Miza, taught classes of 20 or less in a small, matted room, where anyone was able to master the technique of Judo. When it arrived in the rest of Nagato in 1899, many Nagatoians saw the movements not as an exercise, but as a self-defense technique. Miza took this reaction as a way to increase the potential of Judo to the masses and started teaching Judo to little to no experienced customers. Judo, eventually, became part of the compulsory junior high school curriculum in 1912 and the military in 1913. Today, Judo has been recognized as one of the five big martial arts on Urth and was included in the Aldanic Games since the 1950 Salovia Aldanic Games.
Association football has always been the most popular sport in Nagato ever since Morstaybishlian Missionaries sailed to Castella in 1872. Since then, Nagato has dominated the Unovia Region and Northeastern Gondwana, but never winning a single World Cup. The Nagatoian national football team is headquartered in Castella at the Spiegelman Thunderdome Stadium. The team’s biggest rivals are the Augustian national football team and the Orderia national football team.
Throughout Nagato, there are many different football clubs (FC). Castella FC and Kellsthrope United FC are the oldest and are regarded as the best teams with a win-to-loss ratio of 85% and 83% respectively. Other teams include Kirkwood United FC, Langley United FC, Nakata United FC, Watakawa United FC, Tanigawa United FC, Hirasaka United FC, and Akai Shuto United FC.
Track and field have been considered Nagato’s third national sport, after football and Judo. Events like long-distance running and marathons have been popularized in Nagato and have been exported to other places around the world.
Nagato hosted the Summer Aldanic in Castella in 1972 and 1996, making Castella the third Gondwanan city to host the Aldanic twice. The country has also gained the hosting rights for the official World Athletics Championships on five occasions, more than any other nation.
Physical fitness is emphasized in Nagatoian culture, with morning exercises practiced, commercial gyms, and private fitness clubs popular across the country, as well as many different activities like biking, swimming, and track and field.
The three major television broadcasters in Nagato are the Nagatoian Broadcasting Company (NBC), Unovian Broadcasting Company (UBC), and the Gondwana Television Network (GTN); these three networks are all commercial entities. Cable television offers hundreds of channels catering to a variety of niches.
Nagato commercial radio broadcasting includes FM stations and AM stations. In addition, there are numerous public radio stations, ran by universities and public authorities for educational purposes, and internet-based radio stations run by anyone with an internet connection and an Internet Commercial Radio Broadcasting License (ICRBL). As of June 2022, there are 854 licensed full-power radio stations in Nagato according to the Nagatoian Communications Commission (NCC).
The national newspaper of Nagato is the Nagatoian News. Although the cost of publishing has increased over the years, the price of newspapers has remained low, forcing Nagatoian News to rely more on advertising revenue and articles provided by advertisement firms and political parties. Most city and department newspapers have gone online, while some have dual versions online and in print. Major cities often have "alternative weeklies" to complement the mainstream daily papers, such as Castella’s The Peninsula Perceptive or Akai Machi’s AM Weekly. Major cities may also support a local business journal, trade papers relating to local industries, and papers for local ethnic, social, and political groups.
The flag of Nagato is called the Unovian Duke. It was created in 1945 as a replacement for the Duchy of Nagato’s flag, which used the Kingdom of Nagato’s military flag during the Nagatoian Civil War. The colors on the flag are (from top to bottom): Unovian Red, White, Emerald Green, and Gensi Blue.
The phoenix on the flag and the coat of arms of Nagato represent the region of Unovia, of which Augustia and Orderia are a part. All three countries were at one point part of the Unovian Union, which was represented by the Unovian Phoenix.The national anthem of Nagato is Together by Fumie Akiyoshi, translated by Hiltonium and Fé van Kessel. The anthem was originally a Genesi fight song by Fumie Akiyoshi in 1942 and was used as the unofficial anthem of the Duchy of Nagato. Mentions of Mount Coronet, rock climbing, and multi-battle victories can be heard throughout the song, as well as a line about Nagato’s ever-growing list of battles that is has been in.
