La Paz De Los Ricos

the frick is a diultarchy. why do i insist on making everything so complicated.

La Paz De Los Ricos (English: The Peace of The Rich | Novodoman: Eha Paos dev Ehos Riquos) officially the Treangolist Realization of La Paz De Los Ricos (Novodoman: Realiazion Treangolista deva Eha Paos dev Ehos Riquos), and commonly called Los Ricos, is a Treangolist four-bodied federal duumvirate in the Pacific Ocean. It is bordered to the north by Mexican seas, on the east by the West Caribbean and on the west by the Pacific Ocean. La Paz De Los Ricos covers 305,025.9 square kilometers, making it the 71st largest nation, behind Oman and ahead of Italy, and has has an estimated population of 15,341,950, making it the 73rd most populous nation, behind Chad and ahead of Somalia. Los Ricos is comprised of 6 unities, 18 provinces and 2 self-administrative cities.

Los Ricos is the nation that originated the Treangolist ideology, (thus being the first nation to adopt the ideology), and is also a pacifist nation, refusing to fight in any conflicts or intervene with other nations or entities unless absolutely necessary, as directed by the Silence Clause of the Treangolist Charter. The nation has also been host of several international treaties, due to its assured neutrality during outside conflict.

Etymology

The name "La Paz de Los Ricos", translating as "The Peace of the Rich", is meant to be defined as "the peace over a nation of riches and the rich". The term "rich" is meant as a patriotic and nationalist reference to the Ricano people, although it is often times confused as a term referring to oligarchies and demeaning the plight of the poor.

The term cen be remotely traced to the phrase "Las Tierras Ricas" ("The Rich Lands"), the colonial name of the archipelago in 1583, when controlled by the Spanish Empire. The closest relation, however, comes from the phrase "Pax Ricana", a term used in the mid-to-late-twentieth century that referred to the second major period of political and civil peace on the islands. This phrase relates to "Pax Romana", with the "Ricana" in the term meant to describe the political, cultural, and economic zeitgeist of the nation at the time. "Pax Ricana" eventually evolved to the Spanish phrase "La Paz de Los Ricos", which was the name adopted for the naton at the time of the Ricano Reforms in the 1980s. La Paz de Los Ricos has been used ever since.

(It should be noted that an alternate name for the nation is "Ricania", a corruption of the term "Ricano" and the suffix -ia, which can literally translate as "land of the Ricanos".)

The standard way to refer to a citizen of La Paz De Los Ricos is as a "Ricano"

History (Abridged)

To see the full and more detailed history of La Paz de Los Ricos, please visit Volumes One (completed) and Two (under writing).

The earliest records of humans settling in La Paz de Los Ricos dates back to the early 300's AD, when a civilization named the Primahumasi first became relevant on the islands. The peak of Primahumasi civilization has been pinpointed between the years 600 and 1000 AD, when a sizable Primahumasi Empire is speculated to have existed. This empire collapsed in the early 1200s, and four notable civilizations split the empire's territory amongst themselves. One of these civilizations, the Neorte people, quickly established dominance over the central island, Isula Girante, before failing and collapsing in the 1300s.

Around this time, another large civilization, the Mitzilano peoples, emerged from the Neortes' failing empire, and quickly captured significant swathes of territory in Isula Girante. They were so powerful that even the combined forces of the remaining tribes, named the Grava Alliance, could not win against the Mitzilano Empire. This tribal empire quickly recaptured and even surpassed the extent of the former Primahumasi territories. The Mitzilano swiftly expanded outwards from Isula Girante, capturing various islands previously outside their reach.

In the 1370's, the Pacific empire of the Tu'i Tonga people inadvertantly landed on Isula Girante, making contact with the Mitzilano people in the progress. The Tongan people expanded into Isula Girante, overpowering Mitzilano forces and easily establishing a presence there. Over the 1380's, the Mitzilano people gradually lost control of their empire, and were replaced by the Tu'i Tonga Empire. They held this territory across the remainder of the 14th century, until an organized revolt led by a man named Ulalo'mana managed to significantly weaken the Tongan presence in Isula Girante. By the 1400's, the Tongan authorities had abandoned their Isula Girante conquest, leaving a loose alliance of Polynesian settlers and native peoples there. This alliance eventually grew into the most significant Pre-Columbian civilization in the entire archipelago, named the Marhuan peoples. The Marhuans formed the first truly cohesive "nation" in the archipelago before contact with the Spanish, and expanded across several of the other islands in the archipelago.

In 1571, a Spanish expedition, led by the cartographer Sebastian Carlos del Oceano, was blown off course, and unintentionally discovered the archipelago. His expedition landed on the island of Navacoba, and came in contact with the Marhuan people. del Oceano quickly claimed the land for the Spanish Empire, and began establishing settlements across the islands. In 1576, the port town of Puerto Mellor was established (the future Ricano capital), and the settlement quickly expanded.

The Spanish Empire sent various expeditions across the archipelago, quickly claiming the inner seven of the thirteen major islands, subduing Marhuans living in those areas and radically revolutionizing the Marhuan culture, to the point many original cultural facets were lost or made unrecognizable. The Spanish authority christened the colonies as "Las Tierras Ricas", for their rich gold supplies and fertile soil.

In 1604, the Portuguese, who were made aware of Las Tierras Ricas' existence, mounted an assault to try and take over the colony for their empire. The weeks-long assault, which exhausted many resources and cost many lives on both sides, was ultimately a costly success for the Portuguese crown. The Spanish gave up the colony late that year, and the Portuguese began settling colonists and posting defenses for the islands. The Portuguese held the colonies, renamed to "Terras Ricas de Portugal", for only six years, in which time they managed to set up lucrative slave trade hubs with Brazil and established large-scale sugar farms, radically increasing the value of the colonies. In 1610, the Spanish Empire successfully retook the colonies from Portugal after a month-long confrontation, deporting Portuguese settlers and assuming control of the new sugar farms and slave hubs. The conflict was named the "Authority War". The conflict resulted in tensions between Spain and Portugal, resulting in the Spanish authorities expanding further across the archipelago, eventually capturing all of the thirteen major islands of the archipelago by 1727.

During the late 1600's and early 1700's, various proto-Romantic languages emerged as popular dialects spoken by Marhuan inhabitants of the islands (as a replacement for Spanish) These languages, scattered, confusing, and constantly evolving due to the lack of agreed-upon scripts, were corruptions of colonial Spanish and small surviving pieces of the original Marhuan language. These languages, highly upset Spanish authorities on the islands, who feared that the language was an attempt at cultural revolution by the Marhuans. In 1734, angry Spaniards set fire to various Marhuan villages in attempt to erase the language from the Marhuan zeitgeist, an atrocity remembered as "the Night of the Great Fire".

In 1753, the Viceroy of Las Tierras Ricas, Juan Daros de la Laguna, was assassinated by a Marhuan pro-independence group, setting in motion the Breakaway War, the war in which La Paz de Los Ricos gained its independence from the Spanish Crown. The war officially began in 1754, when the Spanish Cortes Generales sent a formal declaration of war to the group which carried out the assassination. The group was named Siete Islas, and their goal was to unite the seven inner islands of Las Tierras Ricas in a political alliance, the first of its kind in the Western Hemisphere. Throughout the war, many small pro-independence groups, or "cells", were organized, and each coordinated with others, a method that allowed for sporadic, yet frequent, guerrilla attacks on the Spanish military. The lead cell, Cell 01, was led by Marco Caluza, and its adjacent cell was led by close associate Joaquim Mejico de Castillos. These two were figureheads in the revolution, and their charisma and belief in the Breakaway spirit inspired many of their fellow revolutionaries.

The beginning of the war was largely a struggle by the Breakaway Militia to establish a foothold in the islands. The militia, split into small cells and mostly unaware of the positions of a majority of other cells, were forced to fight guerrilla battles while isolated from reinforcements. The militia also ran the Double-Edged Blade Campaign, a propaganda campaign aiming to educate civilians about the militia and persuade them to join the struggle. It was named such due to how it both attracted the attention of new volunteers to the militia, and alerted Spanish forces to possible cell positions.

Dozens of battles and hundreds of small skirmishes were fought; some successful, such as the Battles of the Broadleaf and of the Pyrenees Ridge, and others unsuccessful, such as the Battles of Dog's Tail and Red Sky. The militia spent the majority of the war expelling Spanish forces from the archipelago to prevent any major organized opposition. Over the course of the war, Joseph I of Portugal secretly supplied the Breakaway Militia with resources and munitions, in an effort to sway the outcome of the war to their favor, and to undermine the Spanish Empire. Portuguese intervention is widely considered one of the key factors to winning the war.

The final battle of the war was what determined the final outcome. The Battle of Streaming Blood, fought in 1764, was the siege of Puerto Mellor, the capital of Las Tierras Ricas, and a stronghold for the Spanish armies on the archipelago. Close to the entire Breakaway Militia participated in the battle, including Cells 01 and 02. The week-long siege saw the deaths of a large portion of Militiamen, including Marco Caluza. His second-in-command, de Castillos, took control of the Militia, and led the charge into Puerto Mellor. On September 12, the Spanish force at Mellor surrendered, declaring a Siete Islas victory. In December of 1764, the Breakaway Treaty was signed, declaring Siete Islas an independent state with Spanish recognition. The inner seven islands were under Siete Islas' jurisdiction, while all Spanish forces and many civilians evacuated to the outer five islands, which remained under Spain's jursdiction.

Siete Islas was the first independent entity in the Western Hemisphere, but this did not prevent it from suffering harsh economic and political turmoil as it established its identity in the Americas. The country named itself the "Breakaway Commandancy", a militaristic state led by Commander Joaquim de Castillos. Siete Islas now had no economic backing, and so the Commandancy began revitalizing sugar plantations and gold mines, in an attempt to boost their economy. Cash crops such as tobacco were grown and exported to British and Portuguese buyers, and the Siete Islan economy slowly and difficultly recovered.

The Charter of the Breakaway Commandancy was created in 1766 as the first attempt a creating a binding document for the nation's government. The first Charter failed, due to their inability to properly outline its articles. In 1771, the Second Charter was written, and performed marginally better, but still failed to function as a binding document. The 1770s also marked a cultural revolution, wherein the Commandancy was reformed, new national symbols were established, and a much more successful and functional Third Charter was written.

Commander de Castillos fell in love with Miss Anabella Pizaro, and they had a son on March 17th of 1793. Miss Pizaro passed away during childbirth, and left de Castilos angry and heartbroken. For the remainder of the 1790's, de Castillos' mental health continued to deteriorate. In 1795 he created Secda devea͕ U͔stales, a group of advisors not dissimilar to a Parliament or Cabinet, to lead the nation and advise de Castillos. In 1808, de Castillos passed away, leaving Secda devea͕ U͔stales as the leading governmental body of the Breakaway Commandancy, with a man named Mario Matrus in command. Berto de Castillos' command was suspended by

Geography

La Paz De Los Ricos is composed of about thirteen major volcanic islands, with hundreds of lesser islands in the archipelago, all about 200 miles off the southwestern coast of Mexico, straddling the boundary between the Cocos and Pacific tectonic plates. The country is mostly mountainous, with the largest mountain, Mount Vezon'na (Montevezuña) residing in the Sureste mountain chain. The remainder of the country is composed of other, smaller ranges, or is covered in rainforest due to its proximity to the equator. Its northern

La Paz De Los Ricos is considered a sub-tropical or tropical nation, mostly leaning on the former. Due to the nation's position off the coast of Central America, and it's position on the equator, the climate stays stable year-round, experiencing little drastic fluctuations in temperature and rainfall. The mountain climate is mostly a cold, dry climate, especially in the Sureste mountain chain. The north of the country is mostly sub-tropical, with very small temperate patches, and the south and central regions have a tropical wet climate.

La Paz De Los Ricos is also considered to be extremely bio-diverse, being ranked in the top 10 of the most biodiverse nations on the planet. The rainforests have many different species, such as the mani falcon, the banana slug, and many species of rainforest trees, such as the indigenous Edalcter Ades species. The nation has much fertile soil, so crops are easily grown, especially in the central regions around Lake Mitzilano. The environment has been remarked as "heavenly" and "paradise" by many tourists of the country. The famed beaches host a wide variety of arthropod species.

Language
The main language of Los Ricos is Spanish, due to the fact they were colonized by the Spanish Empire in 1834. However, the natives began to create their own dialect of Spanish, mixing their old tongue with the new European language. This resulted in the birth of an entire different language, named "Novodoma," which means "New Language" in that tongue. The Spanish had to leave the island in 1898 as a result of the beginning of the Spanish-American War, since they no longer had the resources to invest in the Archipelago. This gave the natives new opportunities to pioneer Novodoman as a new Romance language.

As the world became more modernized, the language continued to evolve, from clan to clan, from tribe to tribe, from person to person, the tongue grew, new words being introduced left and right, and eventually, by the time La Paz De Los Ricos was fully united in 2004, the language had grown to rival Spanish, Italian, and French in terms of its complexity. It was finally recognized as an official language in 2009, when it was discovered more than half of the population of Los Ricos spoke Novodoman as a first language. Los Ricos learned English as it began to become more globalized. As English was the language of money, they began to teach it in schools and speak it in public to encourage the populace to pick up English as a second or third language. Nowadays, most of the populace speaks regular Spanish as a first language, Novodoman is known by between one third of the populace as a first or second language, and a very similar number understand English, at about one half of the populace learning it as a second or third tongue.

La Paz de Los Ricos is a federal diarchy. This means that Los Ricos invests power in the two co-rulers who preside over most of the laws and decisions, but also bases acts on Parliament as well.

The monarchs is considered to consist of the two corulers of Los Ricos, currently Kings Alejandro Désio Rámos del Sol V and Endrijo Mezikou do Castellios. These two rulers do not hold absolute power. They do technically "lead" the country, but like the United States, there is a system of checks and balances to prevent any one person from holding absolute power.

The Parliament Joint is the two different sections of parliament designated for the provinces and districts of Los Ricos. As La Paz de Los Ricos is a federal state, it is consisted of provinces, eighteen to be exact, which also get a seat in the affairs of La Paz de Los Ricos. The eighteen provinces are divided into two different parliaments, along with one federal district as the main board of power for each of these parliaments.

The Hariano Parliament consists of the nine provinces Fujora, Manille, Enilles, Cuereio, Montejonas, Gran Dorado, Nava Aragon, and Abaret, with Zueravenidad Federal District as the head of Hariano.

The Onua Pariament consists of the nine provinces Giyano, Lucosta, Sureste, Montevezuña, Viexa Morelia, Nava Morelia, Arezuela, Monabéra, and Hatexosia, with Soveranéja Federal District as the head of Onua.

Next come the Departments. In total, there are eight departments. They are Welfare, Judicial, Environmental, Foreign Affairs, Excelsior Affairs, Military, Economic, and Sciences.

- Welfare Department is in charge of the minimum wage and requirements of Los Ricos's lower middle class and poorest citizens. This branch also donates the most to the nation's citizens, estimating around 869 billion paxiléos on an average year.

- Judicial Department is, of course, in charge of the law and order of Los Ricos. This branch is in charge of setting up legal requirements and minimum ages and funding the Ricano police and task force.

- Environmental Department must deal with the environment and quality of Los Ricos' ecosphere. They must sometimes partner with the next department when international measures must be taken to protect the picturesque Ricano ecology.

- Foreign Affairs Department exists to deal with issues that exist on an international scale, outside of the Excelsior Pact. Telegrams are revised by theis department before they are sent, and all incoming telegrams are reviewed by this department as well. They also review World Assembly resolutions before voting on them and decide their morality.

- Excelsior Affairs Department is a joint branch of Foreign Affairs, except they deal with issues concerning the Excelsior Pact and its allies. This branch often interacts with other allied nations such as Nuvasduaer, Kcsr, Montagones, and other such nations which exist in the Excelsior Pact alongside Los Ricos

- Military Department is very small and underfunded, since Los Ricos for the most part shies away from military confrontation and exercises, preferring diplomacy above violence. This department is also often times partnered with Foreign Affairs and Excelsior Affairs to assist with their constant monitoring of the world.

- Economic Department deals with the economy of Los Ricos. They manage the paxiléos and how they are distributed. As a result, they are often partnered with the Welfare Department to help monitor the flow of paxiléos around the nation.

- Sciences Department must deal with the nations health and safety as a priority, then focus on the stars. This department is often partnered with Environmental Studies when going on ecological and biological surveys throughout the nation.
