Raditia



The Federative Republic of Raditia, also known as Raditia, is a semi-presidential federative republic situated on Kryvia sub-continent. It is a federation of four states: the Pobochian Kraina, the Malachian Kraina, the Teslanian Kraina and the Pomoravian Kraina. Raditia covers an area of 547 408 km2 and has an estimated population of fifty-eight million.

The first nation where all these nationalities co-existed was the Raditian Kindom, officially formed in 1520. Throughout the 19th century, Raditians became dissatisfied with the deeply conservative ruling dynasty. Most of the government powers were gradually transferred to the elected National Assembly. Nevertheless, the King very often acted outside their constitutional boundaries. As such, the second half of the 19th century was known for the conflict between the King and the Assembly.

This situation came to the head in 1894. When the Republican Party took control of the Assembly for the first time. They exploited the opportunity that came with the death of Emperor Wenceslaus VII and proclaimed the Republic of Raditia. While multiple pretenders attempted to take control through violence, they were all defeated.

The Republic was overthrown in 1944, that lead to the creation of the Socialist Republic of Raditia. This totalitarian regime crumbled in 1976 and the new constitution was ratified in 1977.

Raditia is a developed country, with a national GDP of circa 2,1 trillion NSD and GDP 36 thousand NSD per capita. Richest peoples are earning eight times more than poorest and there is no federal minimum wage. Funding of social and welfare is decent, while commercial welfare is rare. Raditia is a free market country that supports individualism and the political process is free and open.

Etymology
Raditia is called after the original Raditian tribe, that originally lived in the northern part of the country. They were the first people that came to contact with the Estarian colonists. Based on contemporary evidence, the original Raditians differed drastically from the current Slavic population.

History
Prehistoric and Ancient Times
The oldest human-created building (6000 BCE) was found in Archeological Sites near the city of Vrchov, it is the primitive ancient structure made from stone, probably temple. Peoples that were living here worshipped nature and animals, mainly the Raditian Eagle. But first people were living on Raditian peninsula 500 000 years ago, proof of this is the 50 000 years old skeleton of Homo Erectus.

No much is known about the following period, only that a few primitive city-states existed in the northern part of the peninsula. As far as we know, they never developt complex writing necessary for record-keeping.

In 421 BCE, the Asterian Empire colonized the shores of the Raditian peninsula. By 356 BCE the Empire established complete hegemony over the territory. It became known as the Raditian province. The province capital was the city of Radimopolis, located at the current location of Chernogorod. The Radimopolis was as developed as many other major cities in the Asterian Empire.

Following the Empire's collapse in the early 2nd century CE, the Radimopolis pretty much became an independent with little control over the former province. Over the next three hundred years, the city was raided multiple times. By the end of the sixth century, Radimopolis pretty much disappeared from the face of the earth. The area was soon populated by Slavs coming from the south. A new settlement arose in the Radimopolises place, called Chernogorod, literally meaning black city. The name probably comes from the local dark wood, that was likely used for many early buildings.
