Captiotia (/kæpti'oʃə/ cap-tee-OH-shuh), officially the Summatory Socialist Republic of Captiotia, is a unitary republic on Captiotia Island and other minor islands in the Red Archipelago. Captiotia has an estimated population of 94,500,000 Captiot (/'kæptio/) spread among 3 climate regions, 24 prefectures, and countless districts including the capital, Malachi.
Under the leadership of the Summatory Socialist Party, Captiotia has been regarded by many as a "socialist success" after recovering from significant economic depressions and counterrevolution attempts during the first half of its existence as a proletarian state. Since then, it has been faring economically well against capitalist nations while retaining a socialist mode of production, full worker's democracy, and ample civil rights.
Captiotia's name comes from the island on which it mainly resides, which in turn comes from an archaic description of the island, Plava Kaptiote - Guardian Over Children. This also is where the name of the Captiotian people - Captiot - originates from, roughly meaning "guardians."
Regions and Prefectures
Captiotia extends quite a long distance north-south and covers climate zones from subarctic to subtropical. North Captiotia is mountainous, coated in coniferous forest, and scarred by vast glacial valleys. Central Captiotia is temperate, flat, and fertile. South Captiotia has a Mediterranean climate and ends in dozens of small scattered islands. Each region is divided into 8 political prefectures each.
The population of Captiotia is roughly 95 million with immigration being a large percentage of population growth.
The Captiotian language is a partially-constructed, mostly-natural creole of pre-modern Captiot and English. It can be written with the Latin script or the constructed Captiotian Alphabet.
Captiotian society and government is secularized, with the majority of Captiot being nonreligious, but freedom of religion is protected.
Captiot are not a historically oppressed people.
The highest legislature is composed of three houses.
- National Council, representing organized workers
- National Senate, representing elected professional politicians and intellectuals
- National Forum, representing the entire public
Captiotia is known for its incredibly high foreign aid spending and its incredibly low military budget.
The Captiotian economy is socialist and consists of labor organizations and networks owned and managed by the workers with a varying degree of top-down planning, with the products of social labor belonging to society as a whole. There is no currency. Guided by a framework of National Economic Projects, the government coordinates large-scale industries, infrastructure, public utilities, transportation, science, and agriculture.
All eligible adult Captiot have the right and responsibility to work. Workers enjoy collective autonomy in planning work schedules and complete freedom in choosing what work to do. With automation and optimization of the economy by eliminating the profit motive, socially determined workweeks are short and workers commonly work "overtime" voluntarily to enrich society and themselves, if they please. A citizen may work many different jobs over a week, granting them a more diverse life experience, while also focusing on a trade or study of their choice. All Captiot are assisted by the community if unable to work, and relocation to practically anywhere in the nation is free to aid in pursuit of career/personal development.
Captiotia focuses heavily on the following fields:
×Cheese & Dairy
×Grain & Soy Cultivation
×Health & Medicine
×Tourism & Recreation
×Ecology & Conservation
The culture of Captiotia is considered to be both uniting in its sense of community and shared responsibility, and liberating as it celebrates a diversity of experience and fulfillment of the self. Captiot enjoy the experience of learning and tend to be drawn towards the thrill of discovery and even adventure, but can be shy, reserved, even anxious when in potentially unsafe situations. Captiotian culture is also known for its love of cheese, natural science, and the musical arts; these are sometimes known as the Cultural Troika of Captiotia.
Significantly large-scale infrastructure in Captiotia is planned and constructed according to National Economic Projects, with input from local, district, or prefectural assemblies. Local popular government dominates smaller projects, although they need to adhere to certain national standards.
Energy is seen as a necessity and right in the modern world and provided to all citizens easily because of investments in sustainable power and efficient planning, with the majority of energy produced by nuclear fission and a decentralized network of wind, solar, and hydroelectric peripheries. The government is continually working on expanding renewable energy sources to further reduce costs and environmental impact.
