Description of Political Environment:
Current State of Affairs-
It has been over 30 years since the formation of the Greater Republic of Ackesia and the fervor of that revolution is not lost on those who were alive to live through such times. However, those who partook in the revolution and remember times before the War of Opposing Salvations are now the parents of a new generation of Ackesian millennial who question the ideals of their fathers. Patriotism towards the Greater Republic has been engrained in these younger citizens since the 1990s when they grew up, however the recent economic situation and the uninterrupted rule of President Ackerman have stirred dissension and instability within the Greater Republic. As poverty rises and the reign of President Ackerman seems never ending, the youth of Ackesia have become restless.
The national government of the Greater Republic of Ackesia is a presidential republic broken into three branches: the Executive, Legislative, and High Courts. Citizens of Ackesia largely enjoy political and civil freedoms protected by the governing document of the Greater Republic known as the Article of the Unity of the Ackesia Democratic State, aka the Ackesian Articles. This form of government has ruled over the national body of Ackesia since the fall of the Kingdom of Ackesia in the late 1980s.
The executive branch of the Ackeisan government is headed by the President of the Greater Ackesian Republic, who acts as both Head of State and Government. The President is elected for 6 year terms with no term limits currently in place. As chief executive of the Greater Ackesian Republic, the President enjoys many powers in the day to day operations of the government such as the decree over the ministers, power of treaty, the power to appoint ministers, the power to promulgate or veto laws ratified by the Chamber of Proxy, power to dissolve the National Diet (or conversely veto an order to dissolve the National Diet by the Chamber of Proxy), power to call special session of the legislature, is Commander and Chief of the Armed forces when appointed by the Chamber of Proxy, power to veto appointees such as Ambassadors, High Court Judges, and other officials by the Chamber of Proxy.
The legislative branch of government is a bicameral legislature made up for the National Diet (the lower house) and the Chamber of Proxy (the upper house). Both of these branches are elected by the people within certain constituencies of Ackesia and are the main body of government which develops, writes, debates, and ultimately decides the nation's laws among other duties.
The National Diet is a body of Delegates lead by the Presiding Delegate of the Diet. Each Delegate represents one of 343 constituencies across the Greater Republic and are elected by their constituents every 3 years unless otherwise dissolved by the President or Chamber of Proxy. The National Diet is responsible for writer laws within committees, the formation of national budgets, levying of taxes and tariffs, the power of treaty, the power to call for a public referendum of no confidence against the President (which if passed are subsequently reviewed by the Chamber of Proxy), the power with an absolute majority to dismiss a single member of the Chamber of Proxy, with an absolute majority revoke the power of commander and chief from the President, and the power of oversight and investigation of the government and ministries.
The Chamber of Proxy is the upper house of the Ackesian legislature and is unique from legislative bodies the word as it comprises of 8 individuals known as Proxies. These Proxies are elected by constituencies that standard apart from the normal meaning of the word. Instead of electing representatives by geographic area or population size, these 8 Proxies are elected by Ackesian citizens role in society. Each Proxy represents an important part of society: the Mother, Soldier, Merchant, Laborer, Scholar, Artist, Doctor, and Youth. The formation of this body was first written by [[Yefrem Wiley]] an Ackesian political activist who resided in Beldon in the 1920s. Yefrem wrote that in the future society where the representation of the will of the people did not reside in the monarchy, the roles of traditional Ackesian society would need to be highlighted as to ensure the values of the Ackesian people were represented in their governance.
This Chamber of Proxy thus is made up of the 8 pillars of society. Proxies are disallowed from holding party memberships when running or serving on the Chamber, are not allowed to have held previous office (but are allow to hold office after their time on the Chamber), and are elected for 6 year terms with a single term being the limit any one Proxy can serve. When elections for positions on the Chamber are taken, those who fit the demographic of the position in question report to polling places with applicable identification of such a demographic (e.g. proof of motherhood, doctor's license, enlistment or commission in the military past or present, etc). While the Mother is the only position on the Chamber that is gender based, the Chamber itself can be slanted towards a certain mindset should the demographics wish it to be that way. For insistence, the Soldier could also be a registered doctor, the Youth also a full-time artist, and the Mother also a studied Scientist. This interchangeability allows for the people of Ackesia to elect representatives that best fit the needs of the nation at the time of the election.
The Chamber of Proxy holds the power to ratify laws from the National Diet, dismiss the National Diet (or conversely veto a dismissal by the President), impeach the President, approve of budgets, taxes, and tariffs from the National Diet, recall Ambassadors, appoint generals and admirals, disapprove of treaties made by the president, call into question a veto or similar decision made by the president to be reviewed by the High Court, is commander and chief of the military unless otherwise appointed to the President, the appointment of High Court Judges, the recall of individual Delegates, and the power of treaty.
Description of the Economy: Ackesia is a resource rich nation which is focused on the extraction, refinement, and trade of its natural resources with the rest of the world to boost its own wealth and prosperity. Fossil Fuels, Natural Gas, Coal Mining, and foodstuffs are critical sectors of the Ackesian economy with energy exports rushing to the market in western Lira. As such a secondary industry of logistical transportation of goods has grown in symbiose to its energy exports with fleets of container ships coming and going from Ackesian harbors every day. Rail and air transportation also play a critical role in the movement of Ackesian goods.
Imports are also critical to the Ackesian economy as the movement of consumer goods from Eastern Lira is critical to the markets in large urban centers with more rural areas seeing less of a share. These imports are equally guarded parts of the Ackesian economy and see much of the focus of the government when working with international powers to secure the trade of energy for capital to buy such consumer goods.
Several nationalized and private ventures exist in Ackesia for all activities related to energy extraction, production, and shipment. Foreign investments are rarely allowed as Ackesians aggressively defend their natural resources through either nationalization or other aggressive means.
The Economy of Ackesia can be classified as a mixed economy with the government stepping in to both manipulate and nationalize as needed to protect the nations interest. Portions of the market remain relatively free with Ackeisan citizens free to export and sell domestically their own goods.

The Republican Guard of the Greater Republic of Ackesia is a three branch military focused on the national defense of the nation of Ackesia. The Republican Guard Army, Republican Guard Air Force, and Republican Guard Navy each play a role in not only the defense of the Ackesian homeland but the defense of Ackesia’s interests abroad. While much of its force is located within the boundaries of Ackesia, the Republican Guard plays a large role in the securing of trade lanes on the open ocean as well as the projected force applied to resolve trade disputes or instabilities that threaten the economy of Ackesia.
The history of the Republican Guard is short, with its formation several years after the formation of the Greater Republic of Ackesia, it has undergone growing pains in the early 2000s with the modernization of equipment and force structure. Recently economic recession has affected its ability to procure more modern equipment, but an imitative is underway to bring the force into modern times.
The force consists of 1,018,856 soldiers, airmen and sailors across all three branches, making up 2% of the nation’s population. While the largest of the branches is the Army, the Navy is one of the most well-funded as it is expected to project enough power to secure the nation’s trade lanes with its partners that receive energy exports and send imports of consumer goods. The Navy is a significant force and one of the finest in Lira, able to project the nations power where needed to ensure the free movement of trade and commerce.
There also exists several forces within the Ackesian military controlled by subdivisions of the nation. Within the Army itself, 3 separate organizations exists and are funded by the political divisions of Ackeisa. The Provincial Guards are forces within 5 of the 7 divisions of Ackesia and are under direct control of the Ackesian High Command. While they primarily exist in the defense of these provinces, they are also deployed for riot control, humanitarian relief, and in support of local law enforcement. 2 of the divisions of Ackesia known as the Autonomous Regions also have their own Guard. Within the Republic of Dalengora, the Dalengoran People's Defense Force exists at the command of the Premier of Dalengora, and comprises of several brigades of troops. Akin to this the Grand Principality of Avondale still operates a Royal Guard which largely acts as a ceremonial unit to the Grand Prince, but also can perform much of the same duties as Provincial Guards.
