The United Prefectures of Noronica (No-ron-ik-ah), commonly known as Noronica or the UPN, is a sovereign nation in the north of the Western Isles, in the Argean Sea. Situated above the northern coast of mainland Gael, the United Prefectures of Noronica includes the island of Noronica, the Sessux Isle and many of the smaller islands surrounding them. It also has territory in northern Gael in the form of the peninsula of Arván, or as it is officially known, the Prefectorial State of Arván. The Prefectorial State of Arván is the only state of Noronica that has land borders with another sovereign territory, that being Dormill and Stiura's Territory of Arván. Noronica also shares maritime borders with Lövsk, an island protectorate under Ostehaar. With a total area of 110,467 square kilometres and a population of 28,936,542, it is one of the larger and more populous countries in the Western Isles.

After the Royalist Crisis of 2019, the United Prefectures of Noronica is a Federal Constitutional Republic with strong meritocratic leanings. The political system is unique in that the highest executive position is the 'First Prefect' who is elected independently of legislative elections through a direct election. They command a Government appointed by their choosing. The current First Prefect is Trystan Alexander, whose term began on 23rd February 2019. The capital and largest city of the Overlordship of Noronica is the City of Nolon, regarded as a regional city and financial centre with an urban area population of 4.98 million. Other major urban areas include; Port Sinare, Gwynon, and Harburgh. The United Prefectures of Noronica consists of nineteen Prefectorial States; Greater Nolon, Sinare, Potania, Yorkland, Huxford, Pinross, Tresson, Ferth, Glaesdon, Raeg, Hardfirth, Midland, Mairn, Dantia, Tri Sitraichean, Morken, Greater Inver, Caen and Arván. They all have devolved administrations and are represented in the Prefectorial Senate. Each are led by a Prefectorial Governor.

The United Prefectures of Noronica is a highly developed nation and is one of the larger economies by nominal GDP in the Western Isles. It was one of the region's foremost powers during the 19th and early 20th centuries as the Noronnican Empire, whose colonies spread widely throughout the region. Noronica is still very active all over the Western Isles, using its influence in all corners of the region. Noronica is a member of the League of Nations, a region-wide diplomatic organisation, the Coalition of Free Nations, the VACES alliance, the RTEA, the Argean Rapid Response Force, and the Defence Science and Technology Organisation.

Motto

"Funding the needs of all."

Employees

1,500

We work to improve lives in The Western Isles.

Through financial and technical support for countries working to reduce poverty and inequality, we help to improve health, education, and advance infrastructure. Our aim is to achieve development in a sustainable, climate-friendly way. With a history dating back to 1972, today we are the leading source of development financing for The Western Isles. We provide loans, grants, and technical assistance; and we conduct extensive research. We maintain a strong commitment to achieving measurable results and the highest standards of increased integrity, transparency, and accountability.

The Fund's current focus areas include three development challenges – social inclusion and inequality, productivity and innovation, and economic integration – and three cross-cutting issues – gender equality and diversity, climate change and environmental sustainability; and institutional capacity and the rule of law.

We have over 1,500 employees across the region, with headquarters in Nolon City,Noronica, and regional offices in Athara MagaratAinslie and Corindia. Borrowing members are represented by the Board of Executive Directors. NIDF clients include: central governments, provinces, municipalities, private firms, and NGOs.

Governance of the NIDF is vested in the Board of Governors, which tops the organisational structure of the Fund. Each member country appoints a governor, whose voting power is proportional to the capital in the Fund subscribed by his or her country. Governors are usually ministers of finance, presidents of central banks or other high-ranking officials.

The Board of Governors holds an annual meeting in March or April of each year to review the Fund's operations and make major policy decisions. It may also hold extraordinary meetings on key issues.

The NIDF's governors are ultimately responsible for overseeing the Fund's activities and administration. Although, in practice, they delegate many of those responsibilities to the Board of Executive Directors.

Trust Funds are established by sovereign and non-sovereign donors to complement the NIDF offerings to its borrowing member countries. The countries and multilateral institutions that contribute to NIDF trust funds are NoronicaPolar SvalbardOstehaar, and the Cooperative Union.

Among the NIDF’s strategic partners and donors that contribute to the trust funds are private sector corporations, foundations and multilateral institutions, fostering strategic Public and Private Partnerships (PPP) with the NIDF.

The Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF)—created to promote private sector growth through grants and investments—is the largest multi-donor trust fund of the NIDF.

The Fund also administers multiple single-donor trust funds that provide reimbursable and grant funds to finance consulting services, training, pilot projects and co-financing that complement NIDF reimbursable operations and trigger scalability.

At present the Fund has $188 billion. If it were faced with immediate requests for more than what is at its disposal, it would take the NIDF several weeks to tap various sources of funding. The largest contributor to the Fund is the Federal Overlordship of Noronica for which the Fund takes its name, contributing 15.09% stake worth roughly $28 billion.

ABOUT
Here at the National Archives, we ensure that our nation's history is entirely and carefully recorded and archived for public and governmental viewing. We strive to preserve the great depths of our history by archiving a vast and diverse collection of documents from the very beginning of written word on our islands to the tweets of our government ministers.

The National Archives also serves as the nation's de facto national library after the merger of the National Archives and the Copyright and Publishing Bureau in 2001. Due to the merger, the National Archives contains one of the largest collections of publications and documentations in the Western Isles, containing millions of documents and publications from both Noronica, its former colonies and territories, and copies of treaties in which Noronica has been involved such as the Treaty of Coventry.

RNBC Holdings plc

The Royal Noronnican Banking Corporation plc or shortened as RNBC, is a Noronnican multinational bank with headquarters in Nolon City, Noronica. It is considered as Noronica's largest bank, with branches all over Noronica and its territories, and with many international branches. The bank's roles vary from personal finance, commercial banking, private banking, consumer finance, and corporate & investment banking.

The Royal Noronnican Banking Corporation was founded on 16th February 1874 by Ger Robert Hunter. Ger Robert was a well-known Philanthropist in Noronica, having published several articles on the state of the welfare of working-class Noronnicans in Noronica's industrial cities. Ger Robert and other like-minded individuals founded the bank in the city of Port Sinare under the name, 'The Imperial Bank' in the hopes that the bank would flourish in domestic and imperial holdings. Their design was two-fold, to found a bank to finance the growing trade between Noronica and the rest of the Western Isles, and to design a bank that would finance the needs of all of its customers without being overly-bureaucratic or practising unfair favouritism.

The bank eventually grew to a substantial size, constructing branches in Arván, Charbagnia, the Black Isle and Alteran Republics within the first decade. The bank continued to expand into other imperial dominions and also expanded into foreign nations. During this period of expansion, the Imperial Bank relocated its headquarters to Nolon City. It was formally incorporated by decree of the Noronnican government as 'The Noronnican Banking Corporation' on 23rd December 1886.

Later, in the late 1950s after the First Imperial War, the bank underwent a large international promotion campaign. This led to a large influx of new customers both at home and abroad, which also led to the construction of international operation headquarters to allow for more delegating of power and to allow for easier international banking. The bank was eventually put on the Royal Charter in 1961 which led to it being incorporated again as the 'Royal Noronnican Banking Corporation'.

During the Noronnican Civil War, RNBC was forced to relocate to the Noronnican Black Isle as it felt mainland Noronica was extremely unstable. The RNBC moved back to its Nolon City branch in 1999 as Noronica continued to rebuild itself, playing a vital role for public finance.

This portal design has been in the works for some time now and has a variety of government websites that it has drawn inspiration from. Ultimately, however, I would like to credit Alteran Republics for inspiring me to go down the route of designing my own 'website design'-factbook. I recommend looking at his work as it is astounding! - GOV.ALT Homepage

Another person I would like to credit is Menna Shuli. Indirectly and directly, I was inspired by his tremendous work on Atnaia, and since some of his ideas have influenced my work, I wanted to show my appreciation.
