Etymology

The nation’s name is commonly said to come from “Las Islas Filipinas” as a Spanish explorer named Ruy Lopez de Villalobos. It was then turned into Filipino as “Pilipinas”. Malaya has two reasons ,one is because the British called Malaysia,”Malaya”,so since we have incorporated a part with lots of Malaysians,thus the second word. Another one is because “Malaya” is a Tagalog word for free.

The standard way to refer to a citizen of Pilipinas and Malaya is as a "Filipino and Malayan." But most can be called by their state except for the Chinese SAR,which can be subdivided into Taiwanese, Cantonese and Lotusians (HK and Macau).

History

Pilipinas

Kingdom Period: 4000 BC~1500’s
The Kingdom Period,otherwise known as the Pre-Colonial Period, saw the Philippines divided into lots of states and without a truly nationalist front. Al, Filipino cultures are branches of the Austronesian ethnolinguistic family,which most of the details will be further described in the Culture Section. They traveled a lot to trade. Most areas in the Philippines were under tiny rajahnates, sultanates and barangays. Most coastal and influential areas held trade with Indochina and Canton (Guangdong).

Only little is known from this period asides from the fact that Filipinos were great at metallurgy, navigation, woodmaking and artistry. Notable people from this period include:
Kalipulaku-known to have been the first Filipino hero, killed Magellan
Rajah Soliman-defended Manila from Miguel Lobez de Legazpi
Namwaran-mentioned on the Laguna Copperplate Inscription

A joint expedition force between France and Spain ventured for the Moluccas with Ferdinand Magellan, a slowly rising expeditioneer as its head. They began with 5 boats, 4 were lost on the voyage. They navigated the Atlantic and Pacific, raging storms, endless seas and hardships until they reached Limasawa, a tiny island close to Samar. They held the first ever Catholic mass in the Philippines there.

They ventured next to Cebu, meeting Rajah Humabon, a ruler there. Not much is known about him except for that he made deals with the Spanish and he hated the ruler of Mactan, Kalipulaku. The Spanish traveled to Mactan and fought him on April 1521. Kalipulaku kills Magellan in a fierce battle. The expedition is deemed unsuccessful, leaving with 5 ships in 1519 and returning with 1 only on 1522.

The French and Spanish continue to collaborate until in 1565, another expedition reaches the Philipine Islands under Miguel Lopez de Legazpi. He reaches Cebu and creates a temporary capital until he reaches the famed Maynila, known for as a passing point in the lucrative Brunei-China-Europe trade.

De Legazpi arrives with Martin de Goiti, known for being his right hand. They attack Manila, with 1 rajah opposing them, Rajah Soliman. His defense was valiant yet it did not force the Spanish to bow down. Manila was taken, and gradually the rest of Filipinas was subdued, except for the Moro in the south of the Philippines.

They quickly established the hierarchy of the church and their assigned ones for the colonies, giving importance to those of pure Spanish descent. They brought the culture of Spain to Filipinas, and they quickly absorbed it. Such traditions will be further discussed in the Culture section.

The government was governed by the Viceroy of Mexico indirectly, through those sent by Spain to rule these islands. They were ruled by a gobernador heneral, known to be the supreme and likely only true branch of ruling. They also established banderas, a farming quota established to be paid to the government and the church, polo y servicio, a service all able-bodied men between the ages 16-60 to build infrastructure and encomienda, placing some men in plantations to become farmers to sustain the colonies.

About 2 centuries into the occupation, the Spanish declared their involvement in the Seven Years War and opened up multiple fronts, including one theater in the Pilipinas. The British with a force of about 12,000, took Manila. Some revolutionaries, including Diego and Gabriela Silang, notable commanders in the Filipino front and the Sultans in Mindanao, participated to wipe the Spanish from their lands. People began to see that Britain was a much better influence than Spain and it instituted some revolutionary groups, that initially fought against one another. They saw it as detrimental after a few months, after suffering heavy losses on the Bulacan, Pampanga and Laguna fronts, so they finally fought united, gaining more provinces and inspiring the Bisaya, which were, in the rural areas, mostly deferent to the Spanish, to rise up.

The result was the British coming out victorious and they established Luzon and Visayas as their protectorate. Mindanao was hesitant at first, but they looked to their Malayan brethren, and saw the likely benefits of gaining more technology and knowledge of the world, so they decided to join. The protectorate was crowned as the “British Protectorate of Pilipinas”, with rulers and most local decisions being decided by them.

Sooner, the British united the two protectorates of British Malaya and British Pilipinas under the banner of British Southeast Asia.

The rest will be continued in the Pilipinas and Malaya section.

Geography

Warning: We do not use Imperial measurements. They are unused since 1946 and will never be used due to its oddity of its units.

The climate varies from state to state,but the nation’s ststes can be classified into three groups: tropical,temparate and arctic. The classifications shall be separated below.

Tropical:Luzon,Visayas,Mindanao,West Malaysia,East Malaysia,Singapore
Temperate: Taiwan,Guangdong,Twin Lotus State
Arctic:Siberian Special Administrative Region

The tropical regions receive a lot of rain every year which amounts to [insert millimeters] and has 2 seasons,Summer and Rain Season (this is due to the absence of a formal term). The flora and fauna in these regions are diverse ranging from coconuts to tigers to tarsiers and even the Rafflesia flower,the smelliest flower in the world.

Pilipinas

The Pilipinas, as mentioned above, is a tropical state with 2 seasons. They are known as Tag-araw (Summer) and Tag-Ulan (Rainy Season). A third season known as Taglamig (Cold Season) is recognized by most, and for the purposes of this page, is included.

Tag-araw goes from March-July, with the temperature range easily reaching 29-34 degrees Celsius. It is known to be extremely hot with BTI or Body Temperature Index reaching 32-37 degrees Celsius.

Tag-ulan goes from August-November, with periods interchanging with extreme rain and hot temperatures. This season is dominated by the Habagat (Southwest Monsoon) winds, bringing even more rain to the Philippines. Numerous Intertropical Convergnce Zones (ITCZs), Typhoons and Low Pressure Areas (LPA) are formed during this time. Temperature ranges from 27-32 degrees Celsius and BTI reaching 29-33 degrees Celsius.

It is part of the AGEAN or the Association of the Greater East Asian Nations, an economically and diplomatically-focused alliance and recently exploting into the realm of military projects.

If approved, it passes up,the ladder to the PM and DPM for final approval.
