Siyania(Sianese:Siynia, Apab:Sēyanēya), officially the Democratic Federal Republic of Siyania, is a country located in Aovelale, bordering Apabeossie and Pisland to the west, Ekania to the North, and Wayovers and Ceisernhit to the east. Their capital and largest city is Eitermerv. Other large cities include Utoci, Sianbay, Eka, Paras, and Nosik. Siyania's population is 195 million, majority of whom live in and around Eitermerv, Utoci, and Sianbay.

Etymology
The name Siyania has two possible origins, the more likely candidate is Shania, the Shans, named after the Cyan River which flows through the country and provides fertile, arable land to central and southeastern Siyania. The other theory is that it was named after Sean, the first king of the Empire of Siyania. The name Siyania hasn't altered its form, becoming Sēyanēya in Apab, Seanmi in Ceisern, Sianpa in Mili, and Siania in English.

History
Humans likely arrived in the first Noblian Ice Age in 70000 BC via a land bridge that connected Megia, Brina, and Salis-Neste. The earliest cave paintings in Siania are thought to be over 50000 years old.

First agriculture was introduced approximately around 7000 BCE from the Laefeans. The whole delta network of the Cyan River and the Apti River proved modern-day Siyania to be an excellent place for agriculture.

At the beginning of the Bronze age, Siyania wasn't much of a centralized state. It was made up of various tribes like Shans, Jums, Dowouls, Milis, and Jipolans. The Shans conquered all of their southern neighbors and created the first Siyanian Empire. But the Shans' first attempt to conquer Jums failed and Emperor Sian I died the next year in BC 628.

Emperor Femil II, who reigned from 120 BC to 94 BC, sought peaceful means two conquer the northern tribes. The Jums agreed to create a dual monarchy with Siyania. The Siyans then conquered other tribes, shaping the borders much like it is today.

Apab Era

In 696, Apabeossie invaded and conquered much of Siyania. Their reign will last until 1204 when Siyania revolted. The movement was led by Ande Lee. Rebels captured Sianbay, Utoci, and Paras. Siyania regained independence in 1207. But in the 16th century, Apabeossie which was then a powerful maritime trade empire. sought more expansion and once again conquered Siyania Apabeossie tried to assimilate Siyania into their empire yet Siyanian never gave up. Throughout the second Apab era there were multiple revolts demanding independence and/or autonomy. Then as Apabeossie's power diminished, Siyanian officials declared independence from Apabeossie on April 15, 1938. Apabeossie declared war immediately after. Siyanians defended their homeland but were pushed back. But then, a victory in Sianbay and another big war involving Apabeossie, Siyania was able to push back to the border and even occupying Easy Utoci. Siyania was recognized on May 29, 1942.

After Independence
Siyania remained neutral during the Great Aovelalean war and has been a democratic federal republic ever since. Treaties signed in 1943 include Apabeossie paying repairs to Siyania. In 1946, the Siyanian government introduced economic plans to boost the economy. Before economic growth, 56% of Sianese lived in the country. A boost in manufacturing and urban industries led to more people moving to urban areas, and therefore economic growth. And the Siyanian economy boomed in the '60s and '70s. Siyania grew to be a welfare state. But then in the 70's the Aovelale financial recession hit and the Siyanian economy suffered too. Thankfully due to reform and some bailouts, the economy improved. In the 80s, the SLP reigned for long, and the happiness rate soared due to social policy. The Siyanian economy continued to grow and it joined the ARU in 1993.

Geography
Siyania lies between 100E and 123E, and latitudes 42N and 46N. Siyania has about 1211 lakes and 232 islands, including 45 inhabited ones. Siyania's uncultivated land is mostly filled with forests, plains, and hills. The Cyan and Utopian Rivers flow through Siyania which makes it perfect for agriculture. The Fernie Mountain range is located in the north, and the highest peak is Mountain Hatta. The south is mostly flat.
Siyania lies on the Perad plate but is rather close to the border between it and the Nams Plate, which makes the south of Siyania occasionally subjected to Earthquakes.
Siyania is mostly in the temperate climate, with a small bit of land being in the Mediterranean Climate. Siyania has four seasons, with cold winters and warm summers. The northern parts tend to be generally colder.
Siyania is one of the most eco-friendly nations in Aovelale, with lots of protected Forest and many national parks. Various animals inhabit Siyania in the forests, some including doves, foxes, etc.

Political
Siyania is divided into 14 provinces and 3 independent cities, called sabins in Siyanese. These are largely self-governing, and regional issues are decided by the province parliament. Siyania used to have a federal representative system, which provinces vote for their representatives in the national government in proportion to the population until it was abolished fairly recently in 2017 and the votes were nationalized. (btw it's 2026 so not that recent).
