The Republic of Serdemia, commonly known as Serdemia is a unitary sovereign state in southeast Gondwana. The nation shares land borders with two countries - Aivintis to the south and East Cerdani to the west and north.
Serdemia is a presidential republic, with a unicameral Congress and universal suffrage. The President acts as Chief Executive and Head of State. The capital is Novoska, a global city and financial centre with an urban area population of 5.4 million as of 2020. The largest city is Chernopolsk, with an urban area population of 6.9 million as of 2020. Other major urban areas in Serdemia include Belopolsk, Saragrad, and Nisava.
Serdemia has a sizable economy, following a system akin to laissez-faire liberalism. The average income of a Serdemic citizen is notably fair, with low income inequality. Serdemia was slow to industrialize, but effective after it began. It is a member state of the South East Gondwanan Railway Association.
Serdemia has been continuously inhabited since the late Neolithic Age, following the migration of the Proto Aivintian and Proto Serdemic peoples into the Southeast Gondwana. In this period, archaeological evidence shows signs of a unified Lerasian Empire across the areas of modern day Serdemia, Aivintis, and Joralesia. Evidence suggests that this civilization even reached parts of modern day Oilean. Scholars report that, if such a civilization did exist, it would be based primarily in Aivintis, and most historical evidence to definitively prove the existence of a Lerasian Empire in Aivintis was destroyed in the 19th century.
Sometime in the third century, following the collapse of ancient Serdemic civilization, the tribes of Serdemic people coalesced into two established regional states - The Principality of Saragrad and the Kingdom of Novoska. In the following centuries, the Principality of Saragrad became the Kingdom of Serdemia, the first known use of the term which referred to the Serdemic people. In the mid Medieval Ages, the Serdemic kingdoms remained mostly at peace, interrupted occasionally by the expansionism of the Aivintian States to the south.
During the late Medieval Ages, in 1257, the Kingdom of Novoska and the Kingdom of Serdemia were united in a personal union by the marriage of Prince Ivan of Novoska and Princess Sonya of Serdemia. In 1295, the two nations were finally merged by King Vlastimir, the son of Ivan and Sonya. With blood from both royal families, the kingdom retained the name Serdemia, an homage to the unity and the people of the region that the name was meant to inspire.

Since the transition to a Republic, Serdemia has been dominated by Conservative politics in Congress and in the Executive. CONSERVATIVE POLITICS
The number one opposition party is the Serdemic Social Bloc, a leftist coalition advocating for a welfare state with increasing liberalization and social reform by the government. Since the late 20th century, the party has also been advocating for a more environmentally conscious nation, and the subsidization of struggling industries in order to move towards a more planned economy.
