The Lordovswagnika Constitutional-Technate, commonly called Lordovswagnika, is a constitutional technocratic republic in Central Europe. It is bordered on the north by the Baltic Sea, on the east by Russia, on the southeast by the Black Sea, on the south by Hungary, Moldova, Romania, and Slovakia, on the southwest by the Czech Republic, and on the west by Germany. Lordovswagnika covers 1,314,227 square kilometers and has has an estimated population of 160,335,694. Lordovswagnika is comprised of nine Primary Voivodeships, each of which is divided into three Secondary Voivodeships.
The establishment of a Lordovswagnika state can be traced back to 1000, when Justinas I the Wise, the ruling warlord of lands roughly equivalent to that of present-day Lordovswagnika, converted to Christianity. The Grand Duchy of Lordovswagnika was founded in 1025; it was one of the largest (approx. 1.3 million km˛) and most populous countries of Europe, and experienced great prosperity for the next 900 years. During the First World War, the Grand Duchy was a belligerent on the side of the Allied Powers, and made a few territorial gains that would eventually be lost over the next decade.
In 1929, the global economy collapsed, and like many other nations, Lordovswagnika was affected. Millions of people were without food, lodging, or employment. Bread riots would frequently break out in the capital of Arsuvavni-Ilnowik (Now referred to as "old" Arsuvavni-Ilnowik.); political radicalism was on the rise, and the near absolute power held by the Archduke was called into question. The Archduke, Vygantas Gomolka, tried to quell the riots via the use of force.
In January 1940, Archduke Gomolka signed the Treaty of Arsuvavni-Ilnowik and entered the Second World War on the side of the Axis Powers, but quickly withdrew the Grand Army of Lordovswagnika from active conflict. Nevertheless, millions died during the war, and the war was highly unpopular and crippled the Lordovswagnika economy even further. After this, in the mid 20th Century, the Lordovswagnika Revolution overthrew the archduke and the old regime, firmly establishing the Lordovswagnika Constitutional-Technate. There was a brief period of "terror", where the newly established Technate tried to quell dissent and threats to the new regime, and this was largely successful, with order restored throughout the region by 1960. Thus, the Great Restructuring began.
This period saw the drafting of the Declaration of the Rights of the Industrial Citizen, which expresses the nation's radically egalitarian ideals; it also saw the investment in large-scale public works projects, and investment in the arts and sciences. [INSERT MORE HISTORY HERE]
