Kenzinia


The Federation of Kenzinia, commonly known as the Kenzinian Federation or just simply Kenzinia is a Democratic Federation located in the region of Islamya. It covers approximately 1,904,569 km2 and has an estimated population of 2 billion lives. Kenzinia consists of 6 states and 1 special capital district.

Kenzinia is a thriving country, with a national GDP of K$ 33,760,269,060,897.89 and a percapita GDP of K$ 30,635.45. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Kenzinia consists of hundreds of distinct native ethnic and linguistic groups. The largest and politically dominant ethnic group are the Javanese. A shared identity has developed, defined by a national language, ethnic diversity, and religious pluralism within a majority Muslim population. Kenzinia's national motto, "Bhinneka Tunggal Ika" ("Unity in Diversity" literally, "many, yet one"), articulates the diversity that shapes the country. Despite its large population and densely populated states, Kenzinia has vast areas of wilderness that support the world's second highest level of biodiversity.

Etymology

The word "Kenzinia" comes from an ancient Yeromian dialect. Previous names for the nation included things like Kenzland and Bullovalia, but people wanted a more meaningful name for their nation, so they agreed on Kenzinia, which means "United in one Land".

The standard way to refer to a citizen of Kenzinia is as a "Kenzinian".

History

Early Settlements

World War II

Before World War II broke out in Europe, a separatist group known as the 'Central Liberation Force' (CLF) was formed in Kenzinia. The group has an estimated number of 6,000 armed personnel, and is led by John Kenzsterling's great grandson, Morath Kenzsterling. The CLF was trained and armed with (then) modern weaponry by an unknown organization from Nazi Germany which has a hub in Southeast Asia back then.

At the late 1938, Kenzinia declared war against Ruskazia. Morath saw this as an opportunity to launch an offensive against the government, and so a month later the CLF attacked River Glen, which houses a large military base. They succeeded and the base was set as their primary base of operations.

In March 1939, the CLF took control of several cities in the Special Capital Region, gaining the attention of the government. Gunfights often broke out during the '39s, and by November 1939 the CLF managed to take key buildings in the (then) capital city, Kenzinia City. Having a hard time fighting Ruskazian forces, the Kenzinian Military Forces (KMF) did not manage to wipe out the separatist threat. The KMF's Military Police were sent to deal with the CLF. The military police went to hunt for Morath in River Glen, only to be outnumbered by the CLF. By now the CLF had almost 10,000 armed men, in which most of them are civilians opposing the government.

In February 1940 the Capital Guard Division was formed, thus cutting CLF's hopes of overthrowing the government. Yet a month later in March, when Vice President Zachary Ibrahim was giving a speech, several CLF personnel successfully assassinated the VP from a far range. Later on more successful assassinations were launched at various government officials and military generals. By June a total of 45 government and military officials were murdered by the CLF.

The emptiness of the government cabinet and the ongoing war forced President Arif Breton to step down of power. Morath immediately rose up to the crowd, appointing himself Supreme Leader of Kenzinia. Several weeks later he announced that the name 'Kenzinia' should no longer be used. The country's official name was changed to Central Kenzland, based on the name of the archipelago Kenzinia's territory were, Kenzland. The form of government were also changed, from a presidential democratic Federation to a parliamentary Republic. The head of state and government is a Premier, who is elected by the Legislature. The KMF also underwent a change, its name being changed to Central Kenzland Armed Forces (CKAF). The CKAF annexed several territories surrounding Kenzinia during the late '40s.

Morath's regime ended in 1948 when he was assassinated by a military policeman. The Federation of Kenzinia was re-established a year later.

    Some cities, like River Glen, has a River Bus Service (RBS), also owned and managed by the Department of Transportation. The RBS uses amphibian buses that can travel on land, and on water if it's going to go down a river, just like a boat. If you want to go to work, and your workplace is located across a river, you can also use the RBS to cross the river and straight to work. With just 1 Kenzsterling you can go anywhere you want with the RBS.

    Energy

    Main article: Energy sources

    Most of the country's power rely on Solar, Wind, Hydropower, and Geothermal power. All power plants are managed by Kenzinian Energy Corp., an energy company owned by the government. Most cities have its own wind farm and hydro dams, and most buildings use solar panels placed on rooftops to generate extra electricity. Geothermal power plants are located in the outskirts of the city.

    Fossil fuel (coal, oil, etc.) may not be used to create electricity to reduce environmental impacts. Instead, it will be sold to other poorer nations to generate income.
