The Federal Republic States of New Wolvers, also known as New Wolvers, is a sovereign state and co-founder of the Universal Pact in North Utopia.
The nation, divided in 4 States and 1 Autonomous Republics, is known to be the first in the continent to grant the citizenship to a robot in 1991 and grant equal rights to all its citizens reducing the pay gaps, and giving same rights, laws and penalties without any kind of discrimination.
The nation is known to have community of werewolves in rural sides of the nation, even if is not too uncommon to see those so-called urban werewolves, werewolves who live in the city side of the country and are organized in packs. They are not treated as an autonomous entity, despite most of the packs having their own languages codes and organization.

Etymology

The standard way to refer to a citizen of New Wolvers' is Neo Wolverian, even if other demonyms can be used such as Farkasian, Wolverian and Wolveri.
The name comes from the original name of the first state, Nuova Vlkania, given by the original czech settlers after discovering the territory that comprises of nowadays New Wolvers State and New Veronika State.

History
Originally a colony founded by the Kingdom of Vlkania, located in nowadays northwest Bohemia, Czech Republic, the first coloners were Artur Barta and Colombo Brambilla, a bohemian and a milanese who were incaricated to find new lands to expand the already small kingdom of Vlkania in 1549.

The two friends sailed from Rab, a territory that was given by Venice to Vlkania as a payment, and sailed with five different ships: The Salty Dog, The Cold, The Heavy Cannon, The Fire Of The Sea and The Venetian.

The five ships contained bohemian, milanese and british settlers, all who were on the search of new lands to live in.
60 days of navigation later, the two explorers found the coast of Champion call, starting the very first colonies of Camponia, Juvens and Barta-Ferenc, the latter which will become the largest of the settlements

After ten years of friendship and co-governing, the two friends started a brawl over whose would have taken control of the settlements, as the king of Vlkania, Charles VII of Vlkania, has deemed that the settlement needed only one governor for the colony, resulting in a civil war over who to place as a governor for the territories.

Six days of civil war later, it was decided that Artur Barta would have been the governor, with Colombo Brambilla exiled from the colonies as a result.

Only three years later, Colombo Brambilla and the people who supported his ideals will create the Republic of Jugone in 1563 as an answer of being exiled by the friend, settling initially in mount Celauria, then creating the settlement of Saint Leonardo further east, in the Leonardian Plains.

Only in 1649 the people will start to ask for more rights and representation in the kingdom, as no help was given by King Jakub IV of Vlkania after a famine hitting the colony as well as a growing menace from other confining colonies and empires, so an anti-Vlkanian movement started as well as another civil war, which was only settled in peace after discovering the kingdom has been inglobated by the Holy Roman Empire, thus the colony was de-facto the last territories of the Kingdom of Vlkania.

After the independence in 1710, the newly born nation stayed for thirty years as a kingdom ruled by Queen Veronika of Nova Ferenc IV and Jan Blaha I of Nova Ferenc, which was then overthrown in 1742 and replaced with a republic under the justification of despotism and a need of more personal freedom.

Thirty years later, on day May 5th, 1772, the republic of New Wolvers annexed the Republic of New Veronika - originally part of New Wolvers Republic - as a state of its own, forming the first federation of New Wolvers-Veronika.

In 1793, the Republic of Jugone was struggling economically and asked for help to the Federation to get food due to a heavy famine ongoing on the Republic. The request was granted, but the meanwhile the population of the Republic asked to organize a referendum to let people decide if to become part of New Wolvers or stay as a independent republic, following the disasters that the Republic of Jugone.
The result was a a 69,21% of yes, resulting into the federation to include the Republic of Jugone as a state of the federation, thus getting renamed into The Federal Republic of New Wolvers.

In 1816, the Great Duchy of Pyre's prime minister, Marcos Vidal-Alvaro, proposed to join the Federation as they were in the brink of a famine and a civil war was going to happen due to the duke of Pyre dying without leaving anyone as their heir.
The Federation accepted the request, and accepted the duchy as a fourth state.

In 1902, the colony of Killingfer, a colony of the british empire, asked to join the nation of New Wolvers as the fear of a war that the colony could not sustain was growing. After discussions with the United Kingdom, the colony was granted independence, and was accepted into New Wolvers as a republic, thus modifying the name of the nation from Federal States of New Wolvers into Federal Republic States of New Wolvers, as by request of the colony itself to keep some kind of autonomy in term of laws and uses.

The Republic changed name as a tribute to the Hale Family of Australia, where the last governor of the Killingfer colony, Sir Barnabas Hale, ruled during the independence of the colony from the United Kingdom.

Flags of New Wolvers
The origins of the flag do come up while founding the colony of New Vlkania, where the population used a yellow flag with the kingdom's emblem upon it.
Originally featuring twelve stars indicating the original territories of the nation (Camponia, Juves, Barta-Ferenc ~ also known as Berta, Affanes, Kolmgrad, Newcall, Chempha, Federand, Holmestead, Pontifexia, Unive, Janes) along with the royal emblem, the flag modified with time and events.
The red symbolizes the blood shed by the people who escaped the persecution in Europe, which New Vlkania was known for by many werewolves, while the blue presents the sea that the refugees had to sail in order to escape to the promised land of safety, which is symbolized by the yellow triangle on the left of the flag.

There have been many versions of the flag, and the current one has been modified to include a more efficient emblem that does not symbolize the now-gone kingdom of Vlkania.

They are known for their shapeshifting abilities, being able to turn at will into a large wolf-like creature, as well as for their strength, usually being three times the strength of a normal human. Those citizens are the ideal people and are often seen being employed as soldiers, police officers, firefighters and security guards, even if is not that unusual to see clerks, teachers, or doctors being werewolves themselves.
