History(WIP)

Early History 1700s-1900s

In the early 1700s Zreiru’a Empire granted a charter to colonize the region to the (BTC) “Borea Trade Company. Originally the trading company was only allowed to harvest the pelts from animals in the region however the charter was later expanded to cover all natural resources in the country. Due to over harvesting of the animals of the region. Many animals such as the Nystatiszna deer, beaver and wolves have gone extinct as have most large animals in the region. Throwing the ecosystem into chaos, causing devastation still being felt today. The company responded to environmental collapse by clearing the forests for lumber and creating plantations for cash crops.

Into the early 1800s the plantations required a more consistent supply of labor than the colonists coming from the mainland. The BTC board of directors voted 9-0 to start to importing nekomimi slaves. Seeing the nekomimi people as more expendable compared to elven counterparts. The Nekomimi slaves protested living conditions in Newport resulting in the Corn Street Massacre. The mid 1800s had numerous nekomimi uprisings all across the colony, protesting the slavery, terrible living conditions and the lack of representation. The protests was planned to happen same time as harvest season on the plantations. The response from BTC to the uprisings was to request that Zreiru’a send additional forces to “guard” the plantations and “motivate” the workers.” the request being granted

The First Nekomimi Revolution - First nekomimi revolution was kicked off in the late 1800s, when a still unknown nekomimi threw a box of lit dynamite into a marching troop formation. The word of the attack spread through out the plantations triggering uprisings with the nekomimi labors taking there tools against their masters. The alleged leaders of the revolution were dragged out into the streets of Newport and hanged from the street lamps.

In 1901 the bands occupied the cities and part of the capital, that in absent of a recognized government by the people that they have declared their own government. Zreiru'a in response sent several divisions to restore it's control of the colony. The revolution lasted until the 1920s' where the Zreir'a state was collapsed and Naylorbrookisza a ex-Zreiru'a military officer and a turncoat for the revolution had the other leaders of the revolution executed in his final betrayal.

The Upper Senate is composed of Senior Senators, who serve life time appointments. There are currently 300 senators in the Upper Senate, elected on a national level by pre-approved lists of selectees. To get on the list of approval to run for Upper Senate, they are required to fill out several dozens of forms, pay 50,000 Russ and go in for an interview with the Nystatiszna Intelligence Beau Newport. As a pool for governmental positions they are reserved for high level positions of trust such as governors, department heads, advisers, chief justices and President's chief of staff.

The composition and powers of the Lower Senate are established by the 13th article of the Nystatiszna Constitution and the Good Monday cease fire agreement. The Lower Senate is composed of Junior Senators, who serve 4 year appointments. There are currently 600 senators in the Lower Senate, elected on a providence level by pre-approved lists of selectees.

Executive branch

Executive branch carries out the laws, maintains the police forces, appoints military generals and is head of the military.

Military

Nystatiszna spends 7% of it's GDP on military expenses. The Nystatiszna Republic Military is the military organization in charge of Nystatiszna's military, with a joint command with the Nystatiszna Commissar Core (N.C.C) and Nystatiszna Intelligence Bureau. The branches of the military are the Army Defense Forces, Navy, Air Command, Missile Defense Command, Counter-Special Weapons Department, Counterterrorism and Intelligence. With the latter branch of Counterterrorism and Intelligence under joint control with the Bureau.

Nystatiszna Commissar Core

The N.C.C are in charge of Imperial Party political propaganda, indoctrinating the public with monarchist ideology and maintains a firm grip on the military to assure civilian control of the military. Prior to becoming a commissar an individual had to be registered as a Imperial Party member for a minimum of one years or had a previous veteran Commissar vouch for you and had to attend the Greengin Military Academy, which offers a blend of political and military course. Political officers are usually directly tasked with morale, regulation-based goals and promoting Imperial Party doctrine.

Economy

Nystatiszna is primary a agricultural nation producing canned fish products, corn flour and lumber.

Nystatiszna's economy suffered heavily due to sanctions combined the widespread loss of life from famines, local governments failure to maintain infrastructure and neglect of important cash crops. This caused a large drop in GDP and destroyed the country's ability to attract private and external investment. Major trading partners include Kæra'zna, Rikevaarland, South Hills, and more recently Packilvania. The economy is managed by the Committee for Economical Advancement and the Nystatiszna Central Credit Union.

Nystatiszna is a country of multitude of natural resources but lack the ability to gather said resources. The economy is based mostly on subsistence agriculture and wild fish harvests by the local population using simple tools. Farming techniques are basic, with large plots of land assign to state ran farms. After 1970 Farmer-Act all small farms was sized and redistributed to Zrei elves with political connections. Resulting in the creation of a large-land owning aristocratic families and keeping the farmers tied to the land.

Subsistence crops grown in the country include maize, which occupy more than fifth of the country's activity being used farmland. Canned fish products and lumber are the major Nystatinne exports. Over reliance on lumber and fish product exports makes Nystatiszna very vulnerable to shifts in their prices.

The industrial sector in Nystatiszna is small. Products manufactured primary focuses on agricultural products (such as canned tuna or fish oils), small-scale beverages, furniture, and lumber. Nystatiszna's mining industry is a undeveloped industry, with only cobalt and lithium currently being extracted in small amounts. However recent geological surveys have found volumes of zinc, graphite, lead, copper and titanium have been discovered in center Nystatiszna, a notoriously difficulty and remote place to access. On the northern islands of the country iron and silver have been discovered but lacks any major docks to transport the ore.

Recently, a Nystatiszna renewed it's focus on industrializing.

Media and communications

The largest radio and television station are state-run, and the almost all of the newspapers are owned by the government. All Nystatinne citizens are required to have at least one radio and required to have it on at all times. As of 2021, the state-run Pengu-1 is the largest station and the main source of news throughout the country. Television access is limited, with access limited to only the Newport area. The press is tightly restricted, and newspapers routinely self-censor to avoid government reprisals. The country's only telecommunications group, Nystatiszna Telecommunication Board, which in under control by the Senate who elects the leadership of the board. The company providing telecommunications and fibre optic networks across the southern coast. Landlines are mostly used by government institutions, banks, NGOs and embassies.

Infrastructure

The Nystatiszna government prioritized funding of infrastructure mainly focusing on road and rail construction. The country's water infrastructure is nearly nonexistent in rural part of the country, with only the main cities being able to afford running water. In the rural parts and in villages, hand pumps and managed springs are used.


Villages in the rural areas are often only connect by dirt walk paths only wide enough for a donkey cart. These rural villages rarely have any clean source of water. Having to use shallow wells that often are highly contaminated with all matter of bacteria. As a result these villages often have to depend local Akuanist temples for barrels of light ale to drink. Food sources in these villages are also scarce as farming has been forbid by the land-owners of the villages. Land-owners require villages to pay in rent or work hours, as most Nystatinne earn less than 1 USD a week meaning most rent in labor. Land-owners are often in the Nystatiszna Senate and pushed through the farming ban bill without issue. The land-owners believed that if the villagers started to farm then the villagers won't be able to fulfill their labor quotes for rent. As a result of the law, villagers often have to have children go out and gather foods by fishing or by gathering foodstuff with their elders who are too old to work watching over them.

Administrative divisions

Nystatiszna has been governed by a strict hierarchy since colonial times. During it's colonization the corporate board of the Borea Trading Company, exercised control through a system of provinces, districts, cities, and neighborhoods. The current administration divides regions by only districts, villages cities, and providences. No laws are made at the local level and everything has to be approved by the senate.
