HUElavia

The Democracy Of HUElavia, commonly called HUElavia, is a Democracy in The South Pacific. HUElavia covers LAND AREA square kilometers and has has an estimated population of 325,839,234. HUElavia comprises of 12 States and 3 Territories.

HUElavia is a peacemaker in The South Pacific, mainly known for giving support to third-world countries and offering advice to new, developing nations.

Etymology

HUElavia derives from the meme of Brazilian Laughter, formally known as HUEHUEHUE, and from a mix of Hispanic and Slavic names of Countries such as Argentina, Colombia, Slovenia, and Latvia.

The standard way to refer a citizen of HUElavia is as a "HUElavian."

History

The first known inhabitants of HUElavia was the native Hueti, a group of tribal people who hunted food in the nearby jungles. HUElavia was discovered by Fernando Silva Leite Roys in 1689 after searching for new lands for Partagol. 30 years later, in 1719, Sapinish conquerors came to the south of HUElavia looking for riches and also colonized the land. For 150 years, there was a separation of the two halves of HUElavia, with the Portuguese-speaking region known as West HUElavia, and the Spanish-speaking region known as East HUElavia. Jointly on October 7th, 1897, both jointly declared independence from Partagol and Sapin respectively. The two nations would be separate nations until June 5th, 1900, where both nations merged to become the nation HUElavia is today

The newly formed nation has a weak economy in the first 3 months, but rose a little after it began trading its native crops, such as Plantain, Banana, Yuca, and Potatoes. By 1930, the economy fell through a small depression, but when President Roberto Suarez Vargas declared to protect the environment and encourage all visitors to visit the nation's rain forest, the economy had a very large rise and rose even more when President Manuel Leite Reyes declared an investment in Science, Technology, Healthcare, and Education in order to improve the country in 1955.

By 1960, the economy rose up to a very high value but the market drop of February 1962, formally known as The Economic Slap (Portuguese: O Bofetada Económica, Spanish: La bofetada económica), caused a depression in the people, but history was made 6 months after the crash as newly elected President Maria Santos Leite, the first female president of the country, declared an expansion of the working force, protection of the environment and an increase of tourism. Thus, the Golden Age of the HUElavian economy was born and she lasted 3 terms (which forced the regulation of allowing presidents to serve 2 terms) until she decided to quit in 1974. She was credited for starting the HUElavian Space Program, NHSA (National HUElavian Space Agency), which thrust HUElavia into its 'Platinum Age' in Science and Technology.

After Leite's term, a new president was elected, Omar Lima de Reus, who became known for his progressive education and healthcare reforms, giving the nation a new name around the world. He was credited for bringing in immigrants from all over, which the majority was Asian and Slavic, into the nation. He also helped fund the start of research for clean vehicles in the country.

HUElavia was stable until a man named Marco Santana tried to become independent from HUElavia in his small land in 2006. The president of the time was Thomas Chyrinski, a first generation Ruslavian-HUElavian, and his reaction caused a controversy in the world by cutting down all supplies and utilities to the Santana's house, which caused a political turmoil within the government on the decision. He resigned 6 months later, and a new election was held where Gisele Hernandez Garcia became the second female president. She led the nation with decent decisions and helped raise the economy to a frighting point that people questioned when the economy would stop growing.

In 2027, a terrorist attack was done in the capital city of Curumba, where a separatist group known as FH (Free HUElavia) bombed a local courthouse, which killed 60 people. President Michel dos Santos responded terribly to the attack, stating he did not want to do anything to counter the attack, which resulted in an outrage in the country and his resignation and exile. A new election was held in 2028, and Rafael Lima Reus became president, where he earned the people's and government's trust through progressive reforms in education and welfare, going to people and addressing their issues and proposing solutions that progressed the country as a whole.

After President Lima's two terms ended, Filipe Suarez Sanchez, a centrist, surprisingly won the election by a small margin over the Democratic nominee Isabella Ramirez Nakayama and had a very short-lived presidency after making decisions that infringed on the rights of civilians. He left office in 2040 after his four years was up, and Isabella Ramirez Nakayama ran for the presidency again and became the youngest President of HUElavia at the age of 38, and the first HUElavia of Asian Ancestry to be elected. She had made immigration reforms by allowing ex-patriots and refugees earn citizenship easily, as well as making Education the main priority of HUElavia, as well as making social reforms towards poverty and medical accessibility. A notable point in President Ramirez Nakayama's presidency was that she signed into law and an amendment for the sale of guns for the civilian population. This was signed into law with the only exception that people purchasing guns had to pass a written exam, as well as a performance exam, along with a mental health and criminal record check in order to purchase a gun. She also ended up abolishing the very little of the feudalism that was left in the country, stating that in a time of futuristic advances in HUElavia, HUElavia had to remove anything outdated in the country. The ended up finishing her term as the 2nd Most Popular President in the History of HUElavia

With the end of President Ramirez Nakayama's term, Vice-President Samuel Villa Santos ran as the Democratic Nominee, winning the presidency in a massive landslide over Conservative Nominee Elise Le Pon. He was inaugurated on January 19th, 2049, looking to continue the legacy done by Isabella Ramirez Nakayama.

After 8 years in the presidency, 2056 HUElavian president race was decided by a very slim margin of less than 0.01% (2,500 votes) where the Conservative candidate Ana Sousa Perez won the presidency, marking the first time the Conservative party won the Presidency. In a landmark first decision, President Sousa Perez made the economy into a Capitalist economy, separating from the Socialist economy that was in place for well over 150 years. There have been mixed reactions towards this change, with the rich praising the rise in their incomes, while the poor have been disgruntled from the fall of their yearly income.

Despite the economy going well, the drop in Civil Rights and Political Freedoms under the Sousa Perez administration caused her to lose the 2060 Presidential Election to Liberal Nominee named Ruben Fernandez-Casillas, with President Fernandez-Casillas winning 62% of the Vote. In a massive change to the country, President Fernandez-Casillas ended up abolishing the Royal Family, although granting them special protection from the public, which also guarenteed their descendants to be under special protection as well as they became regular citizens. He also enacted the HUEcare Act, giving Universal Healthcare to the entire populace, which was a first in the history of HUElavia. He also enacted some lowering of taxes, in an effort to continue growing the HUElavian Economy and giving incentives for Businesses to invest in the country.
