The Confederated State of Rodenia (Impelanzan: Estado Confederal de Rodenia) is a sovereign country, located in the central southern part of Arcturia. It borders the nations of South Peragen, Lokania, New Calthia (Great Morstaybishlia), Puntalia, New Puntalia, and Osterlicsh.
For hundreds of years Rodenia was apart of the Impelanzan Empire. It seceded following its collapse and was ruled by petty kingdoms. In the 14th and 15th century Staynish and Ethalrians emigrated from Aurora and settled on the east coast. In 1709 the Morstaybishlian Empire declared Rodenia a colony and by the 1740s Morstaybishlia had seized control of the west coast from smaller kingdoms.
Rodenia made up a part of Morstaybishlian Arcturia, a large, unbroken chain of colonies and protectorates owned by Morstaybishlia from Lokania to Sokala. It fought in the Great War and later the Auroran Imperial War where it was granted independence. From 1975 to 1996 Rodenia was split into two nations; North Peragen, an Impelanzan speaking majority nation in the west and Ruxalara, a Staynish speaking majority nation in the east. However, the cultural and linguistic demographics were complicated and following a lengthy transitional period in the mid 1990s the two nations came together again as Rodenia.
Rodenia suffered an economic crisis in the mid 2000s that failed to improve over the next decade. In late 2018 Rodenia fell into a period of civil war. Great Morstaybishlia's incumbent Prime Minister Walter Johannes supported the right-wing Kirk Santon over the communist leaders and subsequently got involved in the 2018-2019 Rodenian military intervention, which ended on 5 January 2019 when Kirk Santon was instated Protector of the Realm as the head of a provisional government. However, after Johannes was defeated in a general election and the new Labour Prime Minister Franklin Barvata was elected the MBE withdrew. Santon faced immense pressure as a new wave of communist insurgencies threatened to eliminate his position. Santon enacted harsh internal policies against the insurgents and did not restore the democratic foundations of the previous government, later declaring himself Supreme Archon. Rodenia sparked huge controversy after marching forces into Puntalia, and following the Puntalian Compromise Treaty and 2020 Puntalia Military Intervention has faced heavy sanctions and embargoes.
