The Continental-Federal Republic of Wunderstrafanstalt, commonly called Wunderstrafanstalt, is a republic in southwest Laira. Its mainland encircles around the Golden Bay, on the south by Alvizrou tundras, on the east by the Grand Lakes, and on the west by Frederick's Passage. Wunderstrafanstalt covers about 1 million square kilometers and has has an estimated population of 1.4 billion. Wunderstrafanstalt comprises of 71 provinces, which includes 7 city-state, 4 special zones, and 16 overseas territory.
Wunderstrafanstalt is in practice the de-facto leader of the Lairan Union which encompasses a third of the world population and it has became the world's largest economy and military following the dissolution of the Seventh Internationale in 2017.
Wunder-Strafanstalt, loosely translated "Prison of Wonders" or (even more loosely) "Prison of the Free", is an oxymoron originating from an exiled German philosopher quote, "Wunder Strafanstalt is a surrealist cage in which those inside are free". The saying first originated following the Edo-inspired total isolation and blockade of Wunderstrafanstalt by oppresive absolutist Eurosan monarchies, due to Wunderstrafanstalt's status as a safe haven for exiled anti-monarchist republicans, freemasons, liberals, and heretics. The exiles soon went on spreading those ideas and established an Age of Enlightenment system throughout the Lairan continent. The blockade and the religious ultrareactionary movements throughout the Thirty Year's War also instead greatly exacerbate migration rate from Eurosa to Laira, and by the brink of The Enlightment, has directly causing the 11700's Great Brain Drain which accelerated the decline of Eurosa. Today, its name sets as a reminder for Wunderstrafanstalt to retain its position as the historic haven and beacon of freedom and economic growth, a title once lost during the era of the 12000's fascist government.
The standard way to refer to a citizen of Wunderstrafanstalt is as a "Wunderstrafanstaltian."
Siverian tribes started migrating from Kamchatka at least 15000 years ago, though some evidence proved the date might have been much earlier. Over time, the Siverian culture became more complex, birthing to the birth of small city-states in the fertile lands of Creselfer. Without domesticable level however, civilization was stuck in the metal age. From 10800 to 11300 HE, the Lairo-cresel civilization thrived and became a legend of "El Dorado" for Eurosan colonizers. City-State Ciracia was the largest, harboring an estimated of 2.8 million people at its peak.
Aseian Spice Trade
Terrestronesian traders arrived on the continent by the 10900's, crossing the Berin strait from the south bringing spices and cultivable plants. Soon, Southeast Aseians starta migrating in droves to the fertile Creselfer. Disease however wiped out 90% of natives and Aseian colonies starts appearing on Southwest Laira, almost all became a tributary of the Yuan dynasty and fights against the Viking raids.
The Vikings arrived in New Albion in the 11000's and built a fledging colony there. They grew rapidly, but was halted by the Yuans and resulting in Sino-Viking war of 11106, resulting in decisive Yuan victory and rapid degeneration of the colonies. In 11280, Peninsular Frankish explorer Marco Polo who chased the Viking tales landed in Golden Circum and brought back legends of unimaginable wealth and fertile lands. After the Black Death in 11322, the Eurosan Dark Ages ended and ambitious venturers starts seeking new lands after the rapid expansion of the Violetist Caliphate. With the Gibraltar occupied by the Moors, the first voyage was launched by Saxon-Frankish explorer Hans Friedrich von Wittelsbach in 11452. He landed on the sparsely populated Golden Circum, as the Aseians struggled to cross the dreadedly treacherous Carimmate Strait or the Alvizrou mountains. Progress slowed down in the 11500's during the Eurosan Crusades, but Wunderstrafanstalt's fertile and calm climate made the colonies grew rapidly.
Frankish vs. Aseians
By the 11600's, three world powers are emerging: the Roman Imperial Federation (the Frankish), the Polish-Muscovite Commonwealth, and the Ming Changkou.
