The Federal Republic States of New Wolvers, also known as New Wolvers, is a sovereign state, co-founder of the Universal Pact, and member of the Strategic and Economic Treaty Alliance (SETA) in North Utopia.
The nation, divided into 4 States, 1 Autonomous Republic, and 1 Capital District, is known to be the first in the continent to grant citizenship to a robot in 1991 and grant equal rights to all its citizens by 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. Those werewolves may happen to be part of various Werewolf Nations, which legally are mere representatives of the various tribes and packs of werewolves, but all of them are distinct in language, dialect, beliefs, and even currencies.

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
Pre-colonization
The territory that comprehends the four mainland states of New Wolvers were, in the past, inhabited by various civilizations, all extinct before the colonization by the Kingdom of Vlkania happened.
Tribes of prehistoric ailuranthropes and direwolves indicated that the Northern Utopian lands were inhabited, with the biggest civilization belonging to a subtribe of the extinct Thicilina people tribe, a population that used to inhabit the Isles of Killingfer.

Discovery and History since colonization
Originally a colony founded by the Kingdom of Vlkania, located in present days' north-west Bohemia, Czech Republic, the first coloners were Artur Barta (1517-1587), a bohemian explorer, and Colombo De Felici (1515-1583), a Milanese ship captain who were charged to find new lands to expand the already small kingdom of Vlkania in 1549, as the treaties with the Holy Roman Empire didn't allow the independent kingdom to get more land in the European continent.

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

The five ships contained bohemian, Milanese, and British explorers, all of who were on the search for new lands to eventually colonize.
67 days of navigation later, Colombo De Felici found the coast of Champion call, formerly known as "Campo de Terra", starting the very first colonies of Camponia, Juvens and Barta-Ferenc, the latter which will become the largest of the settlements. Such territories, previously inhabited by the Nachanual civilization in the very ancient age and uninhabited at the time of discovery, were the start of the Colony of Nova Vlkania.

After the colony was established, with several years of friendship and co-governing, Artur Barta and Colombo de Felici went in a brawl over whose would have taken control of the settlements, as the king of Vlkania, Charles VII of Aktemburg 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 and a broken friendship later, it was decided that Artur Barta would have been the governor, with Colombo de Felici exiled from the colonies as a result of his actions, accused of mutiny and treason, as de Felici had ambitious ideals of being an independent place from the kingdom.

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

In 1649, the people of the colony of Nova Vlkania demanded more rights and representation in the kingdom, as no help was given by King Jakub IV of Vlkania despite paying the (forcibly paid) taxes 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 that lasted seven months, which was only settled in peace after discovering the kingdom has been incorporated by the Holy Roman Empire, thus the colony was de-facto the last territories of the Kingdom of Vlkania.

After the dissolution and incorporation of the Vlkanian kingdom in 1650, the newly born Kingdom of Nova Vlkania renamed itself into New Wolvers by the ever-growing majority of British colonizers and was 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 provisional republic under the justification of despotism and a need of a more democratical choice, with the creation of the Republic of New Wolvers

Thirty years later, on the day May 5th, 1772, the Republic of New Wolvers annexed the Republic of Nova Veronika - a split territory from the old colony of Nova Vlkania - 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, with forest fires on the Celaurian mountain destroying a great part of the territory's harvest. The request for help was granted, with the population of the Republic asking to organize a referendum to let people decide if to become part of New Wolvers or stay as an independent republic, despite the disasters that the Republic of Jugone was alone.
The result was a 69,21% yes, resulting in 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 civil war that was going to happen due to the duke of Pyre dying without leaving anyone as their heir, settling a division of population between whose to place between Leonard Alva-Campos and Jesus Christi-Lampo.
After the civil war went without winners, the Pyrean prime minister sent a request to the federation to join the state as part of its own territory.
The Federation accepted the request, and accepted the duchy as a fourth state, avoiding a catastrophic famine that would have led to more civil wars and splittings.

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 more and more. After discussions and treaties with the British Empire, 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 customs.
The Republic changed the name from Killingfer to Hale in 1935 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.

During 1914, when World War I started, New Wolvers declared itself a neutral country in the conflict, claiming that they had nothing to do with the current events of the old continent in Europe. However, the Yugonese Representation Party pressed to join the British Axis, with complete failure and total opposition of the President and majority of the Senate.

In 1928, a failed coup d'etat by the Yugonese Representation Party signed the illegalization of fascist propaganda in the whole nation and the dissolution of the YRP following the illegalization of fascist propaganda.

In 1940, another violent coup happened, claimed by the Neo Wolverian Communist Party, under the premise of the "dissatisfaction of the workers and the inability of the Government to free the workers", and was in charge of the government for a whole summer until the legitimate government was brought back thanks to the Federal Carbineer Troopers. The event, known as "The Red Summer", became the beacon of the illegalization of the Neo Wolverian Communist Party, with the dissolution of the NWCP.

The period between 1943 and 1955 is known as the "Newcoming" by many Neo Wolverians due to the influx of refugees from various war-torn countries, like the German population who inhabited Konigsberg, or Hungarian refugees who escaped the communist regime, Czechs and Slovaks escaping both the Nazi and the Communist regimes and various deserters from various armies. Some Neo Wolverian however decided to settle in the much richer Principality of Aterno as they were desperate to find a job, bringing with them the Neo Wolverian Culture

Between the years 1958-1981, the Federal Republic States invested in technology and infrastructures a lot, to the point where it risked going bankrupt in 1960.
Around 1964, major manufacturing companies, software house, and computer manufacturers established in the territory, aided by the funds of the Federal Republic States.
Such companies allowed economic growth and a growth of living age exponentially, the various species inhabiting the territory to enjoy benefits previously not available.

In 1979, a big bauxite field was discovered in the northeastern part of the state of New Veronica, thus the nation started to export bauxite, useful for aluminum manufacturing.
One special company, the Omnes Robotics, became essential in the Neo Wolverian society, as its software were the most advanced in the world to the point wherein 1987 the first AI citizen, Paul Jacobson Omnes, gained sentience, thus paving the way to AI citizenship in 1991 after a three-year-long test took place to confirm the sentience.

In 2010, the nation reached prosperity and the economy became the largest in the continent, and an influx of people from other countries in both the European Union and the Universal Pact opened another, the ongoing era called "The Ultimate Era", as the nation was going to expect more economic growth and political stability.
Around Christmas 2019, the Federal republic States, along with the entire world, was contacted on behalf of a Galactic Police Force to host various refugees from various planets of the Milky Way, thus starting another period for the entire world. Various, previously unseen species of creatures are now seen roaming the Federal Republic States, even though around 700 individuals from the various planets became citizens.

Flags of New Wolvers
The origins of the flag do come up while founding the colony of Nova Vlkania, where the population used a yellow flag with the kingdom's emblem upon it.
The original colonial flag featured 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.
However, during the Summer of 1940, the flag was briefly replaced by a soviet-styled flag.

Humans are the "majority" of the population that composes the nation of New Wolvers. They are part of the subtribe Hominina. They are characterized by erect posture and bipedal locomotion; high manual dexterity and heavy tool use compared to other animals; open-ended and complex language use compared to other animal communications; and a general trend toward larger, more complex brains and societies.

The werewolves, also known as lycanthropes or Garou, are an evolution of the Canis Lupus subspecies.
Being what the majority of the scientist think to be the missing link between humans and canines, those people are portrayed a lot in lots of different cultures as beasts who want to kill humanity, even if reality is extremely different and in some cultures, they are portrayed as good people.
Being an inspiration for the popular tabletop Roleplay Game Werewolf: The Apocalypse by World of Darkness, the werewolves are known to shapeshift at their own will between their various forms and their innate strength, considered three times more than a normal human. Unlike what folklore and popular indicate, werewolves are immune to silver, and instead, revere it as the "Moon Metal" and the "Sacred Blood of Gaia", which under the shared culture of the Werewolf Nations, is considered the goddess of the werewolves.
Werewolves in the Neo Wolverian society are usually seen as a strong species, usually being employed for heavy duty jobs or high risk jobs, even though is not unusual at all to see werewolves being employed as doctors, teachers, scientists, caretakers and so on.
While not strictly necessary, werewolves are usually considered to be part of either a clan or one of the thirteen Werewolf Nations, with each nation having their own language, cultures, customs and duties.
Every night of a full moon, or during emergencies, the Gaian Council is established in order to solve any issue, dispute, update or anything that any Werewolf Nation might endure.
Unlike humans, werewolves do live slightly longer, with documents stating that the oldest werewolf that has ever lived in the nation died at age 322.

Being what the common citizen call Vampires or Chiros, those people do compose a small part of New Wolvers. Usually being all part of a clan, the vampires do not feed exclusively on blood and do not melt (or sparkle*) when exposed during the day, even though they are definitely weaker under the sunlight or underexposure of heavier lights. What distinguishes a human or a werewolf from a vampire is that vampires are usually paler than the average person and sport big teeth while grinning, along with having limited strength, surpassing that of a human but to be weaker than a werewolf. Vampire are known to be the longest living species of all time, being however decimated by viruses and coronaviruses that do hit bats at around age 404.
Being more active during the night, vampires are usually seen, along with werewolves, being in pair and congregating in darker places, as well as in nightclubs, discos, graveyards and so on.

Despite the name suggests they are a species, the OmniRobots by Omnes Robotics™, those people, simply known as robots by the common people, are AIs that have developed a conscience and acquired rights since the early 80s, with the first OmniRobot 3500 robot being recognized as the first AI citizen in the whole Utopian continent under the name Paul Omnes. They are commonly spotted being clerks, police officers, firefighters, or heavy-duty workers alongside werewolves, being safe for them to mine, and cut trees without getting intoxicated or damaged. For the Machina Robotis omnes, their body is just a shell, as their AI stored inside their hard drive.
AI citizens are known to have a territory of their own in New Wolvers State, Hacker City, which has been deemed to be the hotspot for the majority of AI-based citizens.

Other than these cataloged species, other species include Ailuranthropes (Felis Acinonyx hominins), and aliens such as kinecelerans, loboans, tetramands, and so on.
It is noted that to become a citizen of New Wolvers, is not needed to be humanoid-looking, but sentience is enough.

Government

The form of government of a Semi-Presidential government, in which a president exists alongside a prime minister and a cabinet, with the latter being responsible for the legislature of a state which, in turn, the president can approve or deny a law. If a law has been denied by the president, the law has to be redone, and when presented, the president has to sign the law.
On top of that, the president has the power to suggest a law or a policy if a majority is met, which allows the president to create a law that will be examined by the constitutional court shall it be deemed undemocratic.
The President gets elected every 7 years, where new Presidential Elections will be held after the ending of the term, which can be extended three times consecutively.
Despite the name of the chambers suggesting is a monarchy, the names were kept for the sakes of historical reminiscences.
The various branches of the government, the executive, the press, and the judiciary, are all appointed by the nation's cabinet after the elections of the various parties, with the president having to confirm or deny any appointing.

Constituent States and Werewolf Nations
Every state of New Wolvers is governed by a Subpresident, which is elected every three years in democratic elections. Every state has its own government and its autonomy, but not to a degree to enact laws that do interfere in economics ongoing or on budget expenses about healthcare.

The Autonomous Republic of Hale, however, is governed by a "Governorate", which is elected every four years and consists in three Governors, overseen by the Supreme Governor, and has a higher degree of autonomy regarding enactments of laws and customs, but not to the point to block access to other Neo Wolverian Citizens.

The Werewolf Nations instead, while being recognized as nations and assigned territories, are most representative of the werewolf population inhabiting the Federal Republic States, and while having degrees of autonomy to the point that they can set up their own internal currency and their postal service, they are still recognized as part of one or multiple states, as both the state and the Werewolf Nation can co-exist. There is no requirement to be a citizen of a Werewolf Nation, as it is not mandatory to be a werewolf to be part of the nation. Moreover, towns, cities, and rural villages have the option to be part of a Werewolf Nation by popular referenda.

The leaders of the Werewolf Nations are, usually, chosen democratically, even though there have been cases where democracy would not work out. Nonetheless, every day of a full moon, the representatives of the Werewolf Nations must be present at the Gaian Council to discuss any issue between the territories, territory exchange, enactment of new laws other political squabbles. However, a Gaian Council can be summoned in extreme emergencies when the full moon is not up, provided the matter of urgency is greater to invoke a Gaian Council.
Unlike the States and the Autonomous Republic, the Werewolf Nations each do have a different type of government and election, some of them holding a kingdom-like way of succession, while others do rely on democratic votes casted by the citizens.

Foreign Relations and Military

The nation pursues a doctrine of neutrality in terms of conflict, claiming the nation has been founded to avoid other wars that the kingdom was still having with the Holy Roman Empire since its creation and that diplomacy is a fundamental process to the health of a country.
Despite being a pacific country, the Federal Republic has an army called formally called The Liberty Wolves, soldiers which duties are protecting the national territories from hostiles and dangers, are sent to rescue citizens in other countries and have duties of civil protection in case of natural disasters.

Trains are operated under TNWTrains, while the civilian airline is granted by AirWolvers, the former being government-owned, the latter being privately owned.

Major and International airports, however, are under government control, which does give lottos to various other companies that can run it under rules given by the government itself.

Santa Maya International Airport in Yugo State and Roy Lichtenstein International Airport in New Wolvers State are the busiest airports in the nation, and the John Tennyson III International Airport in Wenceslav being the newest airport opened in the country.

Ship Transports are managed by private companies such as SARK Transports Co and HoloLift, which have a contract with the government on the import/export of goods and people.

Energy
Being New Wolvers a society that relies heavily on technology, and having AI citizens, New Wolvers uses since the late 50s efficient nuclear plants, which day by day since the 60s are being updated and enhanced to the point where nuclear wastes are not much of a problem, as the nuclear wastes get reused for the energy itself via [DATA EXPUNGED]. 75% of electricity comes from Nuclear Fusion Power Plants, while the rest is divided by solar panels, eolic pales, and a few natural gas power plants. Only the 1% of power plants is the average petrol-fueled power plant, and are usually employed as emergency backup by the Government.

Healthcare
By the constitution, the healthcare provided by New Wolvers is free, and no profits are allowed for healthcare.
The Neo Wolverian hospitals are one of the most efficient hospitals in the Utopian continent, as the University Hospitals are known to use experimental safe drugs to various patients, and
The Neo Wolverian Healthcare system is provided to Neo Wolverian citizens, UP citizens, EURONAT citizens, and allied nations' citizens through the Federal Healthcare System on a state basis.
Surgeries and hospitalization provided by public hospitals or by conventioned private ones are completely free of charge for everyone, regardless of their income.
