The Republic of Reathwood is a developed democratic state of just over twenty-six million souls located on a northern archipelago adjacent to Raedlon. First settled by English colonists centuries ago, it is home to a relatively prosperous collection of towns and cities with a functional liberal democracy, institutions relatively free of corruption, and a balanced economy that feeds on a mixture of the resources, manufacturing, and talent that Reathwood can provide. Culturally, Reathwood maintains a strong literary tradition that extends to its own unique form of English—commonly known as Reathwood English—that strictly emphasizes linguistic purity in a form similar to Icelandic’s closely-managed linguistic practices. The legacy of Reathwood’s English forefathers remains ever-present, but syncretized with modernity—knighthoods are conferred by the President, not a monarch, and the English kings of old are venerated as national heroes alongside exceptional Presidents and statesmen of the Republic. Although policy shifts from administration to administration, Reathwood has historically exercised general goodwill to nations willing to comply with its vision of democratic and cultural progress—opponents of it, however, will see a sterner side produced by a long history of resolute self-rule.
