The origin of the term Emer is not as clear. Historians and Etymologists have several theories on its origins. One of the more popular theories suggest it is derived from the Emer derives from an Archaic Emerstarian word, Embejr, meaning herder Etymologists think this might refer to the husbandry lifestyles the Norrnybyrrare assumed during the Mesolithic Era. Another theory suggests that Emer might derive from another Archaic Emerstarian word jagemr which means hunter. Experts draw a link between this and the hunter-gatherer lifestyles of the Norrnybyrrare.
At 1,872,819.35 km2 (1,163,715.99 mi2), Emerstari is one of the largest nations in Arda en' Estel. The lowest elevation in Emerstari is in the bay of Lake Kejsarsjon, near Kejsarsby, at -55.45 m (-182 ft.) below sea level. The highest point is Mt. Haller at 1,648.66 m (5,409 ft.) above sea level.
The NFRE maintains 17 states or stats, based on culture, geography, and history. The current boundaries of the states were established in 1756 and have their own governments, they also play an important role in the citizenry of Emerstari's self-identity. The Freijarn Waterfall Nature Reserve is one of the largest protected areas in Arda en' Estel.
Because of Emerstari's northern location, there are mild seasonal variations in daylight. A typical day during the winter is short with sunrise coming around 7:00 AM and sunset at 5:30 PM, summer days are longer with sunrise at 4:30 AM and sunset at 8:30 PM.
The NFRE also has a diverse population of birds, mammals, fish, reptiles, and amphibians. Perhaps the most notable animal of Emerstari is the Emerstarian Deer which is the national animal. Another notable animal in Emerstari is the Brown Bear which was the symbol of House of Svenjark, the former Royal House of Emerstari The country's many rivers and waters are notable for their large pike and cod communities.[/align]
A portion of the world's population has Emerstarian descent due to the NFRE's colonial empire. The vast majority of these people exist in the countries of New Retermi and Carjuelien.
Modern Emerstarian is a descendant of Primeval Emerstarian which evolved from copious Emerstarian dialects spoken throughout northwestern Emerstari around 20000 BC. Emerstarian has matured considerably throughout time, notably in the Eleventh Century when the newly reunited Emerstari attempted to unite the dialects of Emerstarian that had stemmed from Archaic Emerstari once the Furst Imperium fell. Since the Fifteenth Century, Emerstarian has grown to be a valued language in trade and diplomacy due to its colonial empire It is the national language of several former colonies and the official language of multiple international organizations, such as the Emerstarian Commonwealth, the Eurevian Free Trade Agreement Organization, and the Venson Union.
According to the 2015 census, 62.3% of Emerstarians identify as Emerstarian, the next largest group is Presbyterianism which 17% of Emerstarians identify with. The third largest group is composed of 7.9% of the populace who are irreligious. Other religious groups within the country include Judaism, Catholicsm. 2.9% of the citizenry identify with other religions. However, church attendance levels remain much lower than those who identify as being religious. Studies show that approximately 40% of the populace attend church services at least once a month.
Prior to 1444, Catholicism was the dominant religion of the Kingdom of Emerstari, however, when Georg I succeeded to the throne, Emerstari sundered from the Catholic Church. King Georg I proceeded to establish the Church of Emerstari which was a Lutheran denomination. Several of the NFRE's neighbors soon followed suit. This caused multiple wars between Protestant Eurevian nations and Catholic Eurevian nations. Whilst Lutheranism was the dominant religion in Emerstari, a large majority of Northern Island denizens were Presbyterian and thus Georg I had to accept the Presbyterians in order to keep Emerstari united. Excluding this, Emerstari remained mostly religiously homogeneous until the 1950s when Emerstari began receiving increased immigration. In addition to this, beginning primarily in the 1980s, an irreligious minority exists in the nation.
Parents have the choice to send their children to non-compulsory nursery schools between the ages of 4 and 6. All of these schools are either privately owned or owned by a church and they typically act as centers to prepare children for Elementary Schools. Recent studies reveal that 74% of parents choose to send their children to these nursery schools, more commonly regarded as preschools, or præskoles in Emerstarian. Religious and Private schools exist across the country, however, they are required to follow a regulated curriculum. Fewer regulations on their curriculum exist than for public schools and they are allowed to deny entrants based on their religion.
In the 7th millennium BC, the climate in Emerstari and furthermore all of Scania, was warming as it transitioned from the Boreal age to the Sjoska period. The animals and their hunters and already migrated and inhabited the lands of northern Emerstari. To the south, the Haansta Culture had diverged from the Norrnybyrrerer and made their own religion, as well. Their religion, as opposed to Emejrstru – the faith of the Norrnybyrrerer – was polytheistic religion with around 50 gods. In southern Emerstari, the Haansta Culture lived in seasonal camps along the shores and close to forests whereas in the north, the Norrnybyrrerer would follow herds of game and the salmon runs; during winter, the Norrnybyrrerer would migrate south, then travel north again during summer.
In the 5th millennium BC, the peoples of Emerstari learned pottery from neighboring tribes to the south and southwest, who had begun to cultivate land and keep animals. Around 4,000 BC, a new culture appeared in Emerstari; however, this group had not separated from one of the others, rather, it migrated to Emerstari from what is present-day Rhenland. They introduced new technology, but not agriculture; this people is known as the Cønjaskflod Culture due to their settlement along the Cønjaskflod.
The language of these groups is not known; however, at this time, a new family of languages was introduced all across Scania. In Emerstari, a dialect of this family, Proto-Scanian, was being spoken. Evidence from this period shows that circa 3,000 BC, the Emerstarian peoples began to domesticate cattle. The earliest ancestor to the term Emerstarian developed during this period: emfjokkare, which means herder.
Settlements in the Emerstarian Bronze Age consisted mainly of single farmsteads, with no substantial towns or villages known; these farmsteads usually consisted of a longhouse as well as a four-post build structures around it. These longhouses were originally two-aisled, but after about 1300 BC, three-aisled longhouses became normal. Usually, these settlements were by the sea.
Soon, these modest farmsteads evolved into small villages; the inhabitants of these villages farmed wheat, millet, and barley; the Emerstarians kept cattle, sheep, and pigs; they ate deer, elk, and fish as well. Evidence of oven being used as draught animals has been found and domesticated dogs were common; horses, at this point, were rarer and are believed to have been status symbols.
The oldest known written document in Emerstari is dated to be from circa 1050 BC; it is a treaty between two Norrnybyrreresk tribes known as the Buktfolker and the Slættfolker establishing the first city-state in Emerstari. Gradually, more and more city-states appeared; these sovereignties were commonly led by kings who acted as religious leaders, although, there existed some elements of a direct democracy as well. The establishment of these states also brought forth the first wars in Emerstarian history. A war between two alliances of city-states in southwestern Emerstari called the Valley War, which occurred sometime between 1010 BC and 990 BC, was the first of these to be documented. Additionally, a climatic change coincided with the founding of city-states; Emerstari’s climate at this point was colder and wetter than it had been during the Neolithic Era.
Progressively, each of these city-states expanded their own territory while absorbing the others; by 791 BC, most of what is modern-day Emerstari was either controlled by the Kingdom of Flodlanda, the Kingdom of Corønskien, and the Kingdom of Kostlanda. The Kingdoms of Flodlanda and Corønskien both followed the religion of Emejrstru whilst the people of Kostlanda practiced a polytheistic religion derived from that of the Haansta Culture. This religious divide caused tension between the monotheists and polytheists of Emerstari; in 756 BC, the Kingdom of Kostlanda was annexed by the Kingdom of Corønskien. Under Corønskien rule, many of the Kostlandsk pagans fled to the more rural regions of the southwest.
In 756 BC, Emerstari was now divided between the two aforementioned kingdoms; however, in the following years, the King of Corønskien began a campaign to conquer the northernmost kingdom – Flodlanda. Records date that in 748 BC, the King of Corønskien reigned over all of present-day Emerstari including the Haller Islands; most historians agree to recognize him as Afelharð Sigardsson; the Kings of Corønskien are believed to have been elected by an assembly of Sjæmlengra – representatives from various areas of the kingdom – to serve for life.
Although Corønskien had been the most technologically advanced of all the Emerstarian kingdoms, foreign kingdoms to the south and southwest were more advanced and the Kingdom of Guillia, in particular, is known to have seen the growing Emerstarian nation as a threat. In 729 BC, Guilla invaded Corønskien; however, the Corønskra prevailed. According to sources from the 400s BC, no Guillian army made it past the Renauska River in western Emerstari – though most historians believe this to be an exaggeration as it was written by Emerstarians nearly three centuries after the fact. Regardless, it is known that after two years of a defensive campaign, several armies led by King Ælþrich Aggnarsson marched into the northern reaches of Guillia (in the southwestern regions of present-day Coelansk) and conquered numerous cities; experts believe that the Coelansk natives may have aided Aggnarsson in his takeover of the region as they were more culturally, religiously, linguistically, and ethnically similar to the Corønskra than to the Guillians.
For several centuries, the Kingdom of Corønskien gradually expanded its borders westward – this is because to the south were Clemencian cultures whereas to the west were Scanian cultures, which the Corønskra were a part of. In 329 BC when King Harðild Hroudnersson’s armies reached Lake Walchensee in modern-day Saexia, he claimed the title of Kaisaraz (by this point in time, the peoples of modern-day Emerstari were speaking what is today known as Proto-Old North Scanian) and initiated several governmental reforms upon his return to Corønskburg (modern Coronet). Records from the successor to the Kingdom of Guilla, the Empire of Marsie, document that Hrodunersson founded the Emerstarian Empire in 328 BC; however, most things did not change. For example, the Sjæmlengra Assembly remained and the method of electing the Kings did not change for the Kaisaraz.
Around AD 54, Christian explorers from a region unknown to the Emerstarians arrived and the religion began to spread in what is northern and central Emerstari in modern-day. It was in AD 67, that Kaisaraz Finnr Einarrsson converted to Christianity and made it the state religion as opposed to Emejrstru. Christianity, in the following decades, did spread throughout most of the empire; however, pagan religions persisted in the southeast and far north of Emerstari as well as in the western reaches of the Emerstarian Empire.
In AD 78, the Emerstarian Empire was at its territorial height; however, the religious divide caused a civil war and copious western provinces seceded. The Scanian Religious Wars, as it is now regarded lasted until AD 72; fearing Emerstari’s neighbors such as the Empire of Marsie and the Kingdom of Magyarna might invade, Kaisaraz Uldrich Regenhardsson commissioned the construction of numerous walls and forts. Some of these fortifications like the Wall of Cori and the Finska Wall still exist while some of the forts evolved into modern-day cities like Leipze and Bernharde. Circa AD 100, Proto-North Scanian evolved into Old North Scanian; this language was spoken across much of the northern empire whereas Old South Scanian and Old East Scanian was spoken in the southern half.
After an epoch known as the Frids’ Alder – or the Age of Peace – that lasted from AD 170 to AD 240, where there was great economic prosperity in the Emerstarian Empire, Kaisaraz Ældrað Ragnersson initiated a struggle in attempt keep the Kaisarazship within his family. Ultimately, he failed, and a twelve-year-long civil war began; Ragnersson died during the Battle of Vasterflod – near the land which the modern-day Vasterflodmilitærakadami is located upon. Most historians agree that this civil war, Ragnersson’s War as it is called today, began the Declination of the Emerstarian Empire.
In AD 422, Kaisaraz Inge Hrœkarrsson died only two months into his reign – the cause is still unknown to this day but historians assume he was poisoned – and the Sjæmlengrasjæmleng selected five new nominees for the office in May of 422. By August, one of those five nominees, Folki Bjornsson, was selected; however, at his coronation, a group of assassins hired by one of the other nominees stabbed him twenty-two times. His death marked the end of the Emerstarian Empire as it caused copious generals, Sjæmlengra, and other individuals of power to fight amongst each other and divide the empire.
By 430, what is now Emerstari was divided into fourteen different kingdoms; the most powerful ones of which was the Kingdom of Yœrk and the Kingdom of Corønska – the latter claiming to be successor to the old Kingdom of Corønskien and the Emerstarian Empire. While most of northern Emerstari, the Christians of Emerstari, mourned the dissolution of the Emerstarian Empire, the pagans of the south were now free of religious persecution. Traders and raiders from the pagan southern Emerstari, known as Vikingra, sailed in longboats, raiding the coasts the north as well as the coasts copious other modern-day countries in both Eurevia and Eastern Arda; some even settled in the regions they raided.
For the next several centuries, the northern kingdoms were in a quasi-war state with the southern kingdoms and vice-versa; although, they also warred against one another occasionally. In AD 523, war broke out between the Kingdom of Yœrk and an alliance of all the southern kingdoms resulting in its annexation and furthermore, persecution of its Christian population. Therefore, in 528, the Kingdom of Corønska and Kingdom of Otopien declared war to reclaim Yœrk for Christianity; however, upon the war’s end, the King of Otopien – Eysteinn Eirikrsson – claimed all of Yœrk for himself. This action resulted in the Kingdom of Corønska alongside an alliance of all the northern kingdoms threatened war in an attempt to keep the balance of power. A group of nobles within the Kingdom of Otopien then overthrew Eirikrsson, killing him, and then ceding Yœrk to its former king’s son in 541.
In 821, the King of Cojarnien converted to Christianity and forced all pagans in Cojarnien to convert; those who did not, were either killed or exiled to the last remaining pagan kingdom in Emerstari, the Kingdom of Ontarji. His conversion is also recognized by historians as the end of the Emerstarian Vikingr Age as Ontarji had no access to the sea.
It was in 872 that King Lograd Iðunnsson of Ontarji finally converted; throughout the subsequent decades, all of Emerstari was gradually converted to Christianity – Catholicism, in particular. Meanwhile, in the north, the Kingdom of Marlanda was launching campaigns across the Norrkanal to conquer the Kingdom of Haller; by 900, all of the Haller Islands had been annexed by Marlanda.
In 938, the Kingdom of Corønska began to attack and conquer the kingdoms of the north; in 946, the Kingdom of Marlanda-Haller fell and in 950, the Kingdom of Valperæsien. In 1011, the King of Whentii died under mysterious circumstances – although most historians concur that he died of a heart attack – and due to a dynastic marriage, Whentii was absorbed into Corønska. On December 12th of 1036, Erikr IV of Corønska was crowned king; he was distantly related to a family that during the time of the Emerstarian Empire held several seats in the Sjæmlengrasjæmleng and been Kaisaraz at least once. With this claim, Erikr IV renamed Corønska, Emerstari, and demanded all remaining kingdoms of Emerstari become subject to him. Only a single King became a vassal of Erikr, Sigurð of Verni.
Erikr IV began his march to the Kingdom of Ontarji on March 27th; according to monks from the period, with him, Erikr had nearly 4,000 fyrd, 2,500 housecarls, and 2,000 knights. Eleven-years-later, in Spring of 1047, King Gudtvan of Otopien was supposedly killed by an arrow piercing his skull; upon his death, Erikr conquered the rest of Otopien and returned to Coronet where he was crowned Erikr I, Kuing Emerstari on December 25th, 1047. He also established the House of Erikr, or today known as the House of Eric, which has been the Royal House of Emerstari several times through history as well as in modern-day.
Most experts in the field of linguistics are in agreement that the Old Emerstarian – Eldskemersk – split from Old North Scanian; Old Emerstarian, the direct ancestor to modern Emerstari, was a continuum of dialects across the kingdom; however, the Corønsk Dialect was the one of the ruling class. Today, too, Emerstarian has many dialects; although, in modern-day it is much more standardized than it was in the 1200s.
It was in the 1200s that two major wars in Emerstarian history occurred; the 50 Years’ War that began in 1212 and the Imperial-Polsky War that began in 1291. The 50 Years’ War began due to a dynastic marriage between Emerstari and Marseile; the Kings of both nations claimed right to the throne of Roele. Ultimately, Roele was subjugated by Marseile into a personal union and there was a brief truce in 1231; however, war sparked again when King Karl II of Emerstari had ambitions to reclaim land that had once been part of the Emerstarian Empire but now was part of Marseile – the Duchy of Mailes. Emerstari, allied with Canaria, eventually conquered Mailes and the war mostly settled down; however, a treaty was not signed until twenty-seven-years-later in 1262.
Circa 1355, a plague broke out in Nuova Toscana via returning merchants; by 1357, the disease had spread all across Emerstari. Estimates from the University of Rensulier determine that nearly 50% of the Emerstarian population, or 3,700,000 people died during the plague. It lasted until a blizzard in 1359 where the cold killed off many of the bugs and rodents that were spreading it.
Roughly forty-years after the plague, in the 1390s, due to historical marriages between each nation’s royal families, the Kingdom Coelansk and the Kingdom of Sverig – along with its vassal, the Duchy of Soumland – entered into a person union with Emerstari. In 1421, however, the personal union between Emerstari, Coelansk, and Sverig ended when Emerstari’s Royal House, the House of Caans, was replaced by the short-lived House of Aldburg. Unprepared for a war, King Wilhelm II did not attempt to force Coelansk and Sverig to remain in the union and thus contributed to his unpopularity.
Then in 1438, Wilhelm II’s equally unpopular son, Christian I, died of an isolated break out of the aforementioned plague near Caans Castle – a castle he visited shortly before his death. Upon his death, eleven people claimed Emerstari’s throne: King Louis XIII of Marseile, King Hans II of Coelansk, Emperor Frederich III of Herzogne were foreigners who claimed the throne; the brother of King Louis XIII – Duke Charles of Brodeur – had claimed the throne, as well, but being a vassal of the King of Marseile, he was not able to act oppose him. Duke of Upplanda, Georg Lorenssen, a member of the House of Eric claimed the throne, as did seven others.
In 1439, the War of Emerstarian Succession began and it lasted for five years until Georg, Duke of Upplanda, was crowned Georg I of Emerstari and restored the House of Eric for the first time; from 1442 to 1444, the War of the Leagues coincided with the War of Emerstarian Succession. The former began when Protestantism began to spread across Scania. In 1444, twenty-three-year-old Georg I made Lutheranism the state religion of Emerstari. Historians also contribute the end of feudalism, and beginning of the Eurevian Rebirth, in Emerstari to Georg I. By this time, Old Emerstarian had evolved into Middle Emerstarian; subsequent to this evolution in language, many Emerstarians stopped the practice of patronymic surnames and instead took the surname of either their father or spouse.
In 1504, Emerstari became the first nation in Arda en’ Estel to colonize land outside of the region; Baron Christoffer Lorens Ljundstrom landed in Durradon, in the region of Markion, and then in Kophavien -- an island which Emerstari would colonize – during his first journey. In a later journey, he landed eastern Arasland in the present-day Green Union where Emerstari would also establish a short-lived colony. The Arasland colony ultimately failed because global temperatures fell in the early 1500s and it became unprofitable for the Emerstarians to sustain; however, relics of the colony still prevail such as the existence of an Emerstarian-based language as well as the existence of Lutheranism there.
In the year 1603, the great-grandson of Georg I, Gustaf II died and the throne was passed to his seventeen-year-old son, Gustaf III, who died only two months into his reign. According to laws regarding heirship at the time, the throne should have gone to Gustaf II’s second son; however, Gustaf III’s wife, Queen Katarina I, claimed the throne and sent Gustaf III’s young brother to be raised by a relative, the Duke of Whentii. She had done this as the extinction of the House of Eric would be met with much backlash. Katarina I’s reign faced numerous rebellions, all of which were put down; she was the third queen Emerstari had had at this point and one of only six queens in Emerstari’s history. Around this time, is also when Middle Emerstarian evolved into Modern Emerstarian; much of Regemersk – Standard Emerstarian – is based upon the Emerstarian translation of the Bible.
In 1723, Thomes of Rensulier, the great-great-great-grandson of Gustaf II – thus a member of the House of Eric – married the only child of Olaf VI – a member of the House of Leijonhjarta – and upon Olaf’s death, restored the reign of the House of Eric. Thomes I’s rule did not have any significant impact on Emerstarian history; however, his son, Eric IX of Emerstari who reigned from 1749 to 1794 would become the first President of the Federal Republic of Emerstari.
In 1749, an entente of nobles who opposed Eric IX’s liberal policies, raised several armies and attempted to secede; this war is, today, known as the Republicans’ War. While each side was supported by foreign powers, the fighting was purely between the Conservatives and Republicans as well as briefly a Marseilian Nationalist group in Mailes; however, the Duchy of Mailes remained Emerstarian. On September 4th, 1756, the Treaty of Frederiksburg was signed with the defeat of the Conservatives.
It was in 1756 that the Emerstarian constitution was redrafted into the Union Papers of Emerstari and the Kingdom of Emerstari transitioned into the Federal Republic of Emerstari; although, many things remained the same in the government, a third chamber was added to the Foderal Kongress: the Samdet. King Eric IX served two terms as the first President of Emerstari, but he lost reelection for a third term. The Industrial Revolution had also begun in Emerstari around this time.
In 1792, the First War of the Coalitions began; it was a war determining the succession of the Herzognish throne. Emerstari entered the war on the side of Jermansk – whose King claimed the Herzognish throne. Ultimately the Western Coalition – comprised primarily of Emerstari, Marseile, Saexia, and Jermansk – lost the war; however, in 1812, the Second War of the Coalitions began. In this war, even more nations participated and the Western Coalition defeated the Imperial Coalition. The Second Wars of the Coalition ended in 1816; however, in 1818 the Third War of the Coalitions broke out. This time, the Imperial Coalition was attempting to retake Herzogne but lost again. This series of war directly contributed to the founding of the Venson Pact (later the Venson Union) in 1821 – originally between Emerstari, Marseile, and Rolech – as well as the dissolution of the Holy Scanian Empire in 1827.
Throughout the 19th century, Emerstari was in a golden age; several of Emerstari’s most famous authors and painters lived during this period. With the exception of the Wars of the Coalition and numerous small wars in Emerstari’s colonies, Emerstari was in a period of peace. In the 1890s, increased immigration began to come to Emerstari.
In 1911, a war began between the Renochesvian Empire and Austlege; due to a series of complicated alliances and ententes, much of the Eurevian continent was at war by 1912. The 10 Years’ War, as it is known in Emerstari, ended in 1921 with the defeat of the Dosva Pact. Although Emerstari was on the side of the victors, the war created an economic depression throughout much of northern Scania and Emerstari closed its borders to immigration in 1923. In 1921, the Union Papers of Emerstari were updated and the government was reformed, to an extent, creating the New Federal Republic of Emerstari – Niy Foderepublik Emerstari in Emerstarian. The Stordepresjon ended, according to most economists in 1930.
In the mid-1900s, Emerstari participated in three major wars. The first of these was the Second Estelian War in the 1940s – Emerstari did not participate in the first – and the second was the Blustein Conflict in the 1950s. The third was Slovyan Insurgency where a capitalist rebellion formed in the Socialist Slovyan Republic which was a state within the Union of Socialist Republics of Renochesvia; ultimately, Emerstari and its allies pulled their forces out of the region and the rebellion was put down in 1972. Also in 1972, Emerstari longest reigning King Eric X (reigned from 1916 to 1972) abdicated; Eric X was born 1910 and died on February 4th, 2019. He, early in his reign, also established the surname of the House of Eric, Gustafsen.
In 2010, an Emerstarian King again became President; the current King, Eric XII served one term from 2010 to 2014 as a member of the Monarchic-Republican Party. After him, former Samdetor Eric Jeffery Jaems was elected President. In 2016, Emerstari entered the Great War, as it is called in Emerstari, and annexed Nivijegdna, an oil-rich region that Emerstari as historically had interest in.
Literature and Art
During the Emerstarian Golden Age, many authors began writing fictional stories. This movement created greats such as Hans Christiansen, Henry Willemsen, and Johann Harnsfjord. Hans Christiansen, though, he is known for his stories and fairy tales (e.g. Der Grum Andeln, Der Lidten Havfrue, and Der Standhafitge Soldator), was also a poet and playwright. In recent history, Johann Haller was awarded the Estelian Prize for Literature. Linn Rudolphsdottir is famous for her novels and short stories whilst other writers of importance include Frederich Murer, Sir Gustav Freijarn, Thomes Danielsen, Marten Ystran, Peter Heinz, Jaems Bondi, Claus Rifburg, Daniel Lamstek, and Harald Skeppmand.
Food, Sports, and Other Cultural Information
Open sandwiches on rye bread, known as fiskbrod, which in their basic form are food for lunch, can be considered a national specialty when prepared and decorated. Other traditional meals consist of ground meats, such as kottbolls (meatballs) and hakkebof (minced beef patties), or of more substantial meats such as stegegriskott (roast pork) and brænsild (baked herring). Traditional Emerstarian appetizers and snacks usually consist of fish, as well, such as lagesild (Pickled Herring). However, almonds and peanuts are also grown throughout southern Emerstari. Another customary food is sovostpej (pizza).
These traditional dishes, some of which are centuries old, others maybe several decades or less, still are important parts of Emerstarian everyday meals, despite the fact that modern-day cuisine includes many international foods.
Tennis and horse-based sports are popular in Emerstari, as well. The Emerstarian Polo Team has won two gold medals in Polo in Olympiad de Arda since 2000. Other popular sports include hockey, skiing, basketball, Emerstarian Football, and a number of others. In recent years, cycling has been growing in popularity in the NFRE.
Private broadcasting companies hold a monopoly on radio and television in the NFRE. Of those private broadcasting companies, there are four main broadcasting companies which include the Nasjionsk Udsendande Kompagne, Emerstarian Udslandande Kompagne, Haarstien Udsendande Korporation, and Bjorn Medier Kompagne. As of 2016, there are 12,092 registered radio stations and hundreds of channels on cable television that fill copious niches.
According to studies conducted at the end of 2017, around 71% of Emerstarians have cable television.
Emerstarian politics has for many years been divided between numerous political parties that create two informal political factions. These two sides are usually referred to as the left-wing and the right-wing. Major parties that align with the left-wing agenda include the Democratic Party and the Vernon Party whilst the right-wing parties include the Federalist Party and the Republican Party. There are more centrist parties as well, such as the Whig Party. Historically, Emerstari has been a conservative nation, however, in modern day roughly 43% of the population state they are left-wing.
The Supreme Court of Emerstari acts as the highest court in the land, holding jurisdiction over cases that have been filed to them by a district's Court of Appeals. The Emerstarian Supreme Court is composed of seven judges who are appointed by the President whenever a former judge resigns or dies. It also reviews legislation passed by der Foderal Kongres sand ensures it abides by the Union Papers. If the bill should conflict with the constitution, the Supreme Court is authorized to overturn the law.

Military and Law Enforcement
The Emerstarian Navy is one of the largest in the world and is most active in the Estelian Sea, Erchev Channel, Nivijed Sea and Northern Sea. The Royal Navy maintains permanent bases across the globe, with the largest being in Yoerk. The Royal Army also usually holds bases on foreign land. The Royal Army currently has many bases in Emerstarian Nivijegdna due to the Great War (2015-2017). The Royal Army's largest base on foreign soil is located within New Retermi, with 10,000 troops stationed at Fort New Larrsby. Fort Larrsby
As a nuclear-armed nation, the NFRE also possesses a significant number of nuclear weaponry. The first Emerstarian nuclear bomb was developed in the late-1940s to strike fear in the newly established communist regime in southern Eurevia. The utilization of the nuclear deterrent remains integral to Emerstari's foreign policy strategy especially in preserving peace on the Eastern Estelian scene. As of the Venson Declaration of 1958, Emerstari and a number of its allies have committed to using their nuclear deterrent for the protection of all free and democratic nations. Presently, the Emerstarian nuclear program remains endures, despite the disarmament policies passed by the Venson Union. The modern Emerstarian nuclear arsenal is composed of a triumvirate of intercontinental ballistic missiles, strategic bombers, and submarine-launched ballistic missiles.
Non-policing law enforcement bodies that exist in Emerstari include the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Intelligence. The Federal Bureau of Investigation deals with threats to national security and criminal threats that are increasingly complex. The Federal Bureau of Intelligence's primary purpose is to collect, analyze, and evaluate foreign intelligence as well as executing covert actions.
The NFRE has a laissez-faire economy, believing the government should interfere with the market as little as possible. The vast majority of assets are privatized, including energy suppliers, health services, and railway companies. Nevertheless, the Emerstarian postal service remains largely state-run. The service sector plays an important role in the country's economy. Financial services, banking, and the insurance sector are by far the largest service industries in the country alongside the food service industry. However, in recent years, there has been an emphasis on the return of the manufacturing sector, particularly in the form of aircraft and automobiles both of which are major Emerstarian exports. The first stock exchange in Emerstari was set up in 1602 by the (Emerstarian) Colonial Trading Company as a method of raising funds for overseas ventures. Today the Emerstarian Stock Exchange is one of the largest and most important in Arda en' Estel and the world, making the city of Yoerk a chief financial hub.
Emerstari also has copious airports, most notably Coronet International Airport and Hans Asger Clausen Airport Both airports are hubs for Emerstarian Airlines, Emerstari's flag carrier airline. Other major airports include Norros International Airport, Willemsburg Airport, and Chalier Airport. The NFRE also is home to several important waterways and canals, mostly in the southeastern regions.
Energy and Water Supply
Numerous laws regarding the quality of drinking water exist in Emerstari and roughly 17,000,000,000 gallons, or about 69,000 megaliters, of water, was abstracted for public usage per day in 2017. Whilst many Emerstarians living in cities are connected to the sewer network, most people outside of cities are reported to use well systems.
