The Akuan Republic of Ny'Natrotomi, known colloquially as Ny'Natrotomi, is Akuan Republic with a parliamentary democracy to the south west of Acronis. The island collectively is known has Ora Natravoconi, from west to east the islands are named Devri, Tažri, and Tevri. With the largest island being Devri while the most populated island being Tažri. It is a member of the Red Crown Economic Union and a founding partner of Association of the Servants of Akua.
Early History Period
The Paratani orcs settled into the three islands in the early iron age, primarily around the central island of Tažri and built bridges connecting to the other two islands. The settlements was mostly based around the fish trade in the region, with each winter a large celebration was held in the central island of Tažri. Construction during this time was mostly made from wood with any other material having to be imported from the mainland of Tavari. An Akuan migration fleet arrived around the 520s, with more migration fleets on the way. Ballooning the once previously sparsely inhabited islands. They mixed and intermarried with the native orc population, as well continuing the Akuan tradition of mixing together local faith into Akuanism. Eventually the native orc population converted to Akuanism while the Kemonomimi migrates became more Paratani culturally. The mixing of the culturals formed together to make a new Paratani culture with Akuanism as the primary and sole religion of the islands.
First of the Akronist missionaries arrived in 1515 AD establishing schools and temples within the Tevri island, which is the closest island to the modern day Acronis state. They were met with less than satisfactory results in conversion, as the native people simply tried to include Akronism into the Akuanist canon. Which was considered a heresy by the missionaries. When attempts were made to explain the grievest to the natives, who was at a loss why it would be considered heresy.
The second and third wave of Akronist missionaries was met with the same amount of religious resistance. No new schools were built during each time as it proved to be a net loss, with very few students going to the school in the first place. The Paratani native favored the Akuan schools over the Akronist education, despite the newer Akronist schools having more funding and resources at its disposal compared to the older, more established Akuan schools.
The repeated failure to convert the masses of Paratani led to no more further attempts to convert. The akronists that was sent on the island to convert it settled down on it and mostly kept to themselves despite the Paratani frequent attempts
Formation of the Republic and Early Tavari Interests
The preexisting confederation of islands formed a Akuan Republic with universal suffrage for everyone up above the age of sixteen in 1610, which is still ongoing to this day. While healthcare coverage was also universal, it was designed more for the traditional side of Akuan medical practices rather than the modern healthcare service due to the cost. Though with great efforts in 1930 the country’s first three clinics were established on each of the islands, with assistant from Tavari private interest groups.
Through the late 18ths to the early 19th century. The island for the most part was completely ignored by the mainland of Tavari outside of morally questionable Tavari businessmen taking advantage of the strict, hard working culture of the Akuan-Paratani. Having them work far more hours than they would on the Tavari mainland, mostly working in the rubber and fishing industries. Later a cannery was established on the Tažri island, to further develop the fishing industry there.
In more recent times, the country joined the Red Crown Economic Union in 2022. Mostly due to concerns from the newly existing theocratic Acronis across the bay and wanting to drastically improve itself after two centuries of Tavari business exploiting the country without giving any benefit to the republic by any reasonable metric. Switching its preferred trade partners from Travai to Bana and the Southern Coast. Ny'Natrotomi follows the Akuan Traditionalism of being a pacifistic state with no standing military, however it’s close ties to the Federation of the Southern Coast and as well its entry into the RCEU provides a defensive shield around it.
Food in Paratani culture, is heavily based on rice and coconuts. Often using coconuts as a eatable food bowl, clearing the center of the coconut and placing in the ingredients into it. Using rice as a filler material, mixing in various vegetables and boiled fish bits. Each island having a unique seasoning or spice to placed inside the coconut dish.
The republic is a unicameral parliamentary system, with a universal suffrage at 16 years of age, with everyone 5,000 people equaling to one member in the parliament, resulting in a total of 260 seats in the parliament. Elections are held every 3 years. Since 2018, the parliament is has been in a deadlock with a split down the middle of 130-130.
Federation of the Southern Coast and the RCEU
Agriculture makes a majority of the economy in Ny'Natrotomi, primary farming staple corps such rice and soy however there has been significate investment by the RCEU and Tavaris business interests to shift the agriculture to palm oil and rubber. The country has a long history of subsistence agriculture, preferring the rural existence existence compared to industrial agriculture methods as such they dramatically fallen dramatically compared to other member states of the RCEU.
There is a single power plant, created by a investment from a business person from the Federation of Bana. While the country has possibility for off-shore windmills, it hasn't not been realized due to lack of funds committed.
