Overview


Platinia is low populated but also vast, spanning out to multiple habitable planets across different solar systems. Each territory within a habitable planet is but a single small city with a small population, however the land claimed around it would be as much as possible, without intruding onto or near any occupied territories. For this reason, Platinia often chooses to settle on large islands or mini continents first, then claim the rest of the planet should there be no other occupation on it. The main goal of Platinia is to claim and protect as many of the natural worlds that exist from exploitation of less environmentally conscious nations. Platinia also looks for barren terraformable planets, converting them into lush green planets teeming with life.

History


Platinia started out as but a single home to Exarch Sera, who settled down on a habitable planet that was untouched by civilization. The lands were extremely fertile and teeming with wildlife. Sera had set about preserving the planet, constructing a large scale magitech based automated system from scratch while also keeping the environmental impact to nothing. Eventually It was completed, but then Sera immediately moved to expanding the preservation project to other planets and star systems. Platinia now spans many solar systems throughout the galaxy, all which have at least one habitable or terraformed planet.

Eventually Platinia witnessed it’s first small civilization when Sera visited other planets occupied by civilization. She had offered people from a small city devastated by war to live back at her home planet. The population were looked after by the automated systems, constructing small towns with all the basic needs available for the people to live comfortably. Since Platinia’s newfound “guests” did not have to work, they were given the opportunity to explore their own pursuits on a cultural level, such as designing, culinary, entertainment, writing, music, and art. To this day, Platinia has since then become a powerhouse of culture despite its small population. Science and research also became a strong pursuit for the more curious and experimental people, however Platinia regulated that field to make sure that they did not accidentally wipe themselves or the natural life of the planet out.

Geography


Climate

The lands of Platinia are a natural phenomenon. The sandy coasts are warm enough for beach resorts, but the temperatures and climates get considerably cooler when going further inland. Platinia is vastly dominated by temperate rainforests, with the Picea Genus being the dominant tree type.

-

Wildlife

Wildlife is very abundant in Platinia due to its very strict environmental protection schemes. The most notable animal is the Lynx, which is also the national animal of Platinia. There is also a variety of extremely large and dangerous reptilian type animals living within the forests amongst the Lynx, however they are known to show no hostility towards them. The reason for this is entirely unknown. They are very large saurian type beings which are at the very least least 20 metres in length. The variations of them being either giant lizard, dinosaur, wyvern, or dragon-like in appearance.

-

Population


The population of platinia is extremely tiny in comparison to most modern day standards. It also consists of only humans, with the exception of Sera herself and a few AI based individuals. It is very common for the humans of Platinia to live beyond the age of 100, due to their extremely healthy lifestyles, diet, and advancements in healthcare.

-

Religion


Religion is freely practiced within Platinia, however in order to promote fairness to different beliefs, there are no actual places of worship. Instead, people who share the same religions often gather within their own homes. The freedom of self-practice is protected and any form of intolerance, such as pressing beliefs onto others without consent, or denouncing other religions or secularists, is forbidden.

-

Technology


Compatibility and Security

Platinia's technology is classed as "Magitech" due to the fact that it utilises magic as part of its functionality. Because of this, and Platinia's isolationism, their technology has been developed entirely independently of that of anyone else's in existence. The methods that have gone into creating the technology, along with the use of specific magical energies, make it almost, if not entirely impossible to use with other technologies. This is also important in terms of the security of Platinia's technology, as the incompatibility would make it impossible for outside systems to hack into.

-

Power Sources

Platinia uses only clean renewable energy. The primary source is the natural magical energy that it's own land creates. Other sources such as wind, solar, and geothermal energy are also often used alongside the primary source.

-

Self-sufficiency

All housing and infrastructure of Platinia is built with self-sufficiency in mind, meaning that they all handle their own electricity, water, waste, heating, cooling, and all other essentials in order for them to function properly.

-

Notable Technologies - VR

The Most notable technology of Platinia is its virtual reality systems, which are extremely advanced due to its use of magic. Users of the system only need to walk into a virtual reality room with a specially designed wristband. once inside, it is as if they have been completely transported to an entirely different location. Removal or damage of the wristband, or if at a point where something would normally kill, would simply end the simulation for that individual. Sensations such as pain are only mild in simulations no matter how severe it would have been naturally, but enough to make the user aware.

-

Notable Technologies - Bio-gel

Because of the heavy focus of medical technologies, Platinia has created the likes of Bio-gel. An extremely useful substance which is applied on the likes of open wounds and severed limbs, immediately numbing, cooling, disinfecting, and sealing to prevent blood loss instantly.

-

Education


Free Education

All citizens have a twelve year free compulsory cycle of primary and secondary education, to which then they can choose to move into building their career path, or they can continue education at the free universities provided.

-

Foreign Education

All education is kept within Platinia for its own population. While foreign education is forbidden due to isolationism, there are occasions where knowledge is gained from the outside world, which then, if considered useful, is integrated into Platinia’s methods of education and libraries. Obsolete and inefficient methods are still categorised into the specific subject’s history.

-

Health


Free Healthcare

Platinia adopts a universal healthcare system, which is provided freely to the entire population. All citizens from birth are given a nano-chip which provides live and detailed information on the individual’s health throughout their lifetime.

-

Foreign Healthcare

Healthcare is not provided to outsiders with the exception of tourists, who are given only essential healthcare in the event of an emergency.

-

A Cure for Everything

Because of the Platinian Dewberry which grows locally, all citizens can easily be cured of any form of ailment or disease known in existence, such as cancer, virus, fungus, parasite, or bacteria. In the interests of medical research, however, Platinia also discovers alternative cures for such which does not include the use of the Platinian Dewberry.

-

Medical Advancement

The advancement of medical and biomedical science and engineering have been some of the biggest focuses of Platinia. Such advancements have made it very easy for those who have suffered damaged limbs or body functions to be fully recovered. It is also possible for lost limbs to be completely replaced with no difference in function.

-

Government


Policies

Platinia’s government policies can be found in the Canon Stats and Policies Factbook.

-

Foreign Relations

Platinia, for the majority of its time, has been extremely isolationist. They kept to themselves and did not provoke or invade any other nations that they were aware of. There was a short period when Platinia was a part of an alliance, but has returned to isolationism due to its disbanding. Whenever Platinia expands to other territories, they make sure that the land is not occupied before they settle on it.

-

Economy


Currency

The monetary unit used in Platinia is the Plora, which is a magitech based digital currency.

-

Resources

Platinia is also home to the unique resource known as the Platinian Dewberry. Known for its unusually vibrant blue colour which dimly glows during the night hours, the Platinian Dewberry is highly regarded for its seemingly unlimited curative ability of almost any ailment known to all intelligent life. This is kept secret from the outside world however, as only enough is cultivated for the Platinian population and space for agriculture is limited. A higher demand would mean foraging in Platinia's vast wilderness which it strictly protects, and the risk is high due to the frighteningly dangerous wildlife. The lands of Platinia are also extremely fertile, making crop farming very abundant without needing much space to supply its own population.

-

Autarky

Platinia embraces economic self-sufficiency, therefore it does not trade with foreign nations. It does however run a small tourism industry, which keeps all foreign visitors accompanied with a guide at all times while out in public. This is the only way for foreign citizens to experience the unique technological advancements and strikingly beautiful environments Platinia has to offer. All revenue earned from tourism is put straight back into improving it further.

-

Industries

The cultural industry is Platinia’s largest industry. As the population does not need to work, everyone has the opportunity to pursue their own interests, which the vast majority of them focus on their creative talents and take career choices such as designing, culinary, entertainment, writing, music, and art. The automaton systems provide the scientific and technological works and advancements that Platinia is known for, however few also join this field, specifically the medical and biomedical science and engineering. Since Platinia also utilises magic in their everyday lives, there is a specialised spellbook industry specifically for those who wish to hone that talent even further.

-

Military


Unmanned Spacecraft

While primarily used in Platinia’s long term goals of terraforming planets and the preservation of natural environments, the unmanned units are also the core firepower of Platinia. Numbering in the thousands across the span of many solar systems, the Platinian Fleet consists of ships which are capable of efficiently travelling in both air and space. There are currently five classes of ships in the Platinian Fleet. All but the PL-97 are capable of faster-than-light travel and can easily jump between solar systems. They can also utilise specific star types in order to refuel themselves, making travelling from one end of the galaxy to the other possible, albeit very slow.

The PL-97 Class Ship Launched Fighter, famous for its agility but also short range.
The Courier Class Multipurpose Ship, often used as escorts, scouts, and other low-profile missions.
The Clipper Class Multipurpose Ship, used for small scale transport of goods and personnel.
The Cutter Class Multipurpose Ship, used for carrying small scale terraforming equipment and large scale transport of goods and personnel. It also holds 2 PL-97 fighters.
The Majestic Class Interdictor Capital Ship, Used for carrying large scale terraforming equipment and fleets of the above ships.

-

Civilian Training

While Platinia does not have an actual military itself, training in self-defense has been integrated into the standard education system, meaning that the entire adult population is capable of defending themselves, whether it be hand-to-hand or with melee or ranged weapons.

-

The Platinian Guard

The Platinian Guard, which is essentially an all-in-one emergency and defense service of Platinia, also makes up for the lack of a military. Each member of the guard is trained for at least 3 years using highly advanced virtual reality simulations, pitting them against a huge variety of situations which emergency and military personnel would normally be trained in. The Platinian Guard is also provided with magitech powered military-grade technology, ranging from small firearms to vehicles for land, air, sea, and space. Despite all this, it is a rare occasion that the Platinian Guard engages in actual warfare since Exarch Sera and the unmanned units act as the primary defense, but even then, the Platinian Guard will always be ready to respond with a stalwart defense against aggressors.

-

Natural Defense

The very wilderness of Platinia also acts as a natural defense against foreign aggressors due to the extremely large and dangerous reptilian wildlife that lives within it. They are also the very reason why Platinia has a no emigration policy in place, simply because leaving the borders is a guaranteed death, either by being ripped apart, crushed, or eaten. They are very large saurian type beings which are at the very least least 20 metres in length. The variations of them being either giant lizard, dinosaur, wyvern, or dragon-like in appearance. It is in fact far more dangerous to fight against the Platinian wildlife than it is Platinia's own population. They are more than capable of destroying even heavily armored vehicles.

-

Exarch Sera

Exarch Sera is part of the primary defense, and the only offense of Platinia. There have been a few instances where mass bloodshed has been avoided where Sera directly challenges the leaders of the aggressive nations, calling them out for sending their own to fight a war instead of fighting her themselves. This also doubles as an attempt at psychological warfare against the aggressor's military, calling out their leaders that they would send their own people to die in their stead. When Sera is around to defend Platinia, she is more than capable of (with the absorption of a star’s energy) fighting off entire armies alone, even wiping out star ships and planets should the need arise. She is strongest against single targets, making her extremely dangerous to high-value and high-threat individuals. Her weakness however is the love for her own people, and holding them hostage would easily make her surrender for their safety. Betraying that however would send her berserk, and very few have ever lived to tell of it.
