Welcome to the Monarchy of Kanada! In our dazzling island you will find breathtaking snowcapped mountains, cozy villages nuzzled between the forested peaks, and the best watches in The North Pacific! Her Majesty, Queen Grace III, is our proud monarch, and leads the country to the best possible direction. Though, due to multiple short periods of isolation, the country has fallen behind in military and information technology, to a late 70's to early 80's type era. But still, the country is beautiful.
The Kanadian Military is a strong, highly trained force of ~100,000 active troops, and over 1.1 million men and women in reserve. Using it's abundance of metals and other resources, over eight million bolt action rifles are in bunkers across the country, and two thousand light tanks.
~70,000 men and women are active army troops and maintain the country's coastal defenses and inner bunkers. It is a highly trained force that fights to no end, and low morale makes no difference. They are equipped with steel pressed helmets, grayish-white uniforms, a KM-4 Bolt Action Rifle with forty rounds, occasionally a KS-7 sidearm pistol, and three stick grenades. Most also have gas masks available in the event of a gas attack.
Snipers and the Royal Kanadian Mountaineers have KMM-2 Bolt Action Rifles, usually included with optics. Special forces also have KPD-23 submachine gun. Most battalions will have multiple KHM-33 Heavy Machine Guns for holding down areas in defense.
~35,000 men and women are active naval sailors or dockyard workers. The Navy is a Nation's strong point and is almost completely modernized. With three aircraft carriers and ten battleships, it is well equipped to keep the shores safe.
The Air Force
~5,000 men and women are active pilots and airfield workers. A considerable weakpoint, the country makes up for it's outdated and low amount of aircraft with a major amount of anti-aircraft guns and missles sprinkled about the coast.
The Concrete Ring
The Concrete Ring is the name of a project that began construction in 1985 officially. From 1822, defenses were put up around the island, but TCR began under the authority of Queen Grace Kanad II, where artillery bunkers were constructed continually around the island, and was expanded to include machine-gun bunkers, forts, and sometimes entire fortresses. This ring of defenses around the entire island was to ward off invasion. Even with an invasion force two times the size of the Kanadian defensive numbers, the casualties would mount and it can be said to be virtually impossible to conquer a beachhead without sacrificing dozens of thousands of peoples' lives.
As TCR project came to an end, the second phase is starting with the Queen's daughter, Grace Kanad III, the Snowfort. Hundreds of concrete bunkers will be constructed underground, becoming fortresses with entire cities underneath. As density skyrockets, these cities will relieve pressure on the crowded country while making a second line of defense against anyone who wishes to control the entire island.
The Kanadian economy is relatively strong, worth ~8.4 Million NSD, is mostly made up of the selling of classic automobiles and household items. Clocks and watches are a popular export, considered as some of the best in the region. Old-fashioned automobiles are also sold, mixing modern, more healthy engines with older frames.
Recently found in the mountains, a large quantity of oil was uncovered. Not currently being sold, it is being collected and stored by the government for future use.
Minerals such as gold and iron ore are common in the many mountains, and are also a popular export. The country also has lots of lumber. One large thing not in abundance is food, with very few crops being grown due to the cold. This has led to lots of food being imported.
Kanada has recently emerged from silence, and is looking for allies and trade parters.
Native Kanadians have been living on the Big Island and the few surrounding island for millenia, and it is difficult to trace where the people have originated from. Kenea was the first founded nation on the island, settling many small villages along the coast, while only a few decades later, Sundon was formed inland, living in the mountains and forests. The Keneans were infamous sailors, shipbuilders, and raiders while the Sundons were intense fighters on land, using the terrain as their defense. Dozens and dozens of wars and alliances would be strung between the two, and by the 1600's, relations had cooled, and they could be considere allies. Then, the idea of firearms reached the Kaneans (Name changed in 1499) and within months they had conquered Sundon.
The island was unified under King Walt Kanad II, of Kanea, who then renamed the entire island and nation after him, becoming Kanada, in 1623. The island went into a period of isolationism. From 1794 to 1823 were a string of revolts and riots known as the 'Bread War', where peasants revolted over and over about the lack of bread and other foods. Eventually the population calmed down, and the nation remained silent until 1911. In 1911, the weak-minded King had led the nation into economic collapse. The population rose up, and a long and grueling war was fought until 1919, when the revolt was finally defeated, and the crown was back on top.
After another long period of isolation and silence, in 2017, the nation of Kanada began communications and trade with more nations, and discovered how far behind they had drifted in technology.
