Wealden, known professionally as the Wealdenite Union, is an island nation located in Southeastern Yasteria, sharing an ocean border with the Free Pax States and Peregrinia, and bordered in the east by the Pacific Ocean. Wealden has a population of over 70 million within 32 constituent states, the most populous of these being Maia. Wealden's capital city is Kairi.
Various native Wealden tribes inhabited the lands around the Driftwood Harbour since antiquity, and tribal kingdoms sprung up in the southwestern region of Wealden during the middle ages before the accidental arrival of Staynish settlers in 1609. Before its establishment as a republic, Wealden existed as a tributary Archduchy state to the Morstaybishlian Empire, with 5 of its 30 present day states existing as sub-duchies within the United Archduchy of Wealden. The nation would eventually gain its independence from the Staynish in 1730, with the kingdoms of Thomaria and Silesia joining its ranks, albeit causing long-term division in the country that would eventually spill over in the 20th and 21st centuries.
The Provisional Wealdenite Republic was formed after the 2023 Wealdenite coup d'état, which saw the reformist anti-autocracy Liberation Front democratically assume power under Cathryn Gargano. The move to reform the state of the People's Republic of Wealden came as a result of The Great Divide, a series of protests, riots, and demonstrations from April 2009 to May 2023. On 1 September 2023, the provisional government reformed into a coalition government led by the People's Reform Party, the Liberal Union, and the Democratic Labour Party, entitled the "Foundation Coalition". The Unionist Party, along with others, were left in opposition.
Wealden celebrates a strong lumber-based production economy, with the timber industry producing over 500 billion Wealdenite Staters per annum. The economy relies heavily on that of the state of New Cumberland, Wealden's largest state, which produces over ₴4,700 in timber exports per day. Wealden also prospers from a large industry in Arms Manufacturing, especially in naval and aerospace matters - the industry makes over ₴5,250 per day, however this is substantial compared to its peak in January 2020, where it produced over ₴14k per day. A greater Wealdenite focus on tourism and trout fishing between the years 2021-22 helped stabilise the economy.
