Is there a verb missing in the first sentence?

Also, don't pay too much attention to political analysts from Nhoor; they tend to be a little bit pedantic.





Universal Basic Income
Redistributing Wealth Whilst Maintaining the Free Market

What if the state covered your cost of basic living? Would
you seek better paid employment? Perhaps go back to school to retrain?
Or volunteer to care for others? What would you do with this new freedom?

The aim of the Universal Basic Income, or UBI, is to create a basic foundation
for all Alteran citizens to better themselves through better employment, education or
voluntary work for the community. It is the most ambitious redesign of social engineering
and government by any national government - creating a stable platform for citizens to
better themselves whilst removing cumbersome, expensive and bloated social welfare systems.



Universal Basic Income

What is Universal Basic Income?

-
-
    The Universal Basic Income (or U.B.I.) is a periodic, monthly cash payment unconditionally delivered to all on an individual basis, without means-test or work requirement.

    The government guarantees that each citizen receives a minimum income - despite their circumstances.


How much would citizens and civilians receive?

-
-
    Citizens and civilians would recieve a monthly, tax-free income of 1,250Ͼ.

    This is paid directly into bank accounts or building society accounts, so recipients have the freedom to spend the money of whatever is deemed appropriate


How is U.B.I. defined in Altera?

-
-
-
-
-
-
-
-
    In Altera, UBI is defined by five key characteristics:

  • Period: UBI is paid at regular intervals of one month - it is not a one-off grant or loan

  • Cash Payment: UBI is paid in an appropriate medium of exchange, allowing those who receive it to decide what they spend it on; paid directly into bank accounts and not in the form of stamps, coupons or other restricted forms of payment

  • Individual: UBI is paid to and for the individual and is not based upon households and occupants

  • Universal: UBI is not means-tested - the same amount is paid to every recipient

  • Unconditional: UBI is paid to the individual without a requirement to work or demonstration of a willingness-to-work


What is the purpose of UBI?

-
-
-
    The aim of Universal Basic Income is twofold:
  • Firstly, to combat and finally abolish poverty by guaranteeing everyone a basic income

  • Secondly, to create a foundation for every citizen to stand upon, to improve productivity by reducing stress, allowing greater access to higher education and volunteering to better the community


How is UBI paid for?

-
-
-
-
-
-
-
    The budget for Universal Basic Income is generated from downsizing and cutting of previously administer welfare programs and a modification to the tax code. Very little "new wealth" is required.

    Most of the funding will come from the money saved by cutting or abolishing the bureaucracy and red tape generated and required by previous welfare schemes. Equally, a lot of the funding is found by redirecting the funds previously allocated to these programmes.

    A small portion of the funding required, particularly during the early transition phase, will come from a slight modification to the tax code; this will not affect the majority of people:

  • A transactional fee of 0.05% of transactions over 100,000Ͼ from one account to another will be applied

  • A taxation upon companies that use automation and robotics to generate 60% or more of their productivity; a 2.5% tax upon post-cost profits


Won't giving out free money cause problems?

-
-
-
-
-
-
-
-
-
-
    The biggest argument against UBI is the idea that it will increase laziness and greatly increase the consumption of unhealthy lifestyles.

    A 2013 study by the World Bank specifically examined the outcomes of implementing UBI, and the impact it would have upon a population.

    The findings showed that overwhelmingly people did not spend disproportionate amounts of UBI on cigarettes, alcohol or junk food.

    Another study conducting by the Council for Information showed that less than 1% of recipients of UBI would stop work permanently; though this was largely to take care of family members and children.

    Overall, citizens reduced their working hours by around 10%; though productivity overall rose by 15% as citizens found better employment, showed reduced levels of stress and overall enjoyed their work more.

    Any citizens that worked less overall would use the extra time to go back to school, look for more suitable employment, spend money on social and cultural activities or commit to voluntary programmes.


Why is UBI deemed more effective at tackling poverty than welfare?

-
-
-
-
-
    Welfare and unemployment programmes come with a lot of strings and cost attached; such as taking part in non-beneficial courses, applying to set number of jobs per month, or forcing recipients to take any employment - even if the job is not suited to the worker.

    Additional, most forms of welfare require high levels of bureaucracy - with large teams required to assess individuals, as well as create and maintain databases of applicants, recipients and available work.

    All in all, UBI aims to reduce government spending and better everyone's lives by better-utilising government resources.

Like the Khas-Kirat Empire, modern-day Athara Magarati Federation of Hangates consists of the 36 Guns. Due to what a gun sounds like to foreigners unfamiliar with this system, Magaratis themselves often use the terms "tribes" or "ethnic groups".

Almost each of these 36 Guns has its own symbols, languages, and beliefs. Those interested in military history of the Isles might have come across unit names like "Nine Gyarong Gun" or "Nine Khas Gun". Unlike other political entities, the Khas-Kirat Empire did not have the concept of civilians (at least until 16th Century and at least not among the Khas-Kiratis). Everyone in the gun was a soldier in war times; even the women (which is how the Khas-Kirat Empire had more military manpower than its contemporaries). Furthermore, Khas-Kirati myths stated there were roughly 36 "other realms" in the Isles and that it was the "divine destiny" of each gun to conquer one of those realms more like BS made by later Khas-Kiratis to justify their conquests).

Each one of the 36 Guns is technically divided into roughly a hundred or two hundred clans and clan-based alliance marriages are common in the Magarat region even to this day. And so are centuries-old clan feuds which come with such a large number of clans.

00. The Imperial Mgar Dynasty


Emblem of the Mgar dynasty

The Imperial Mgar dynasty, also known as the mainland Mgars or the House of Mgar, is a clan that does not belong to any of the 36 Guns. Currently, there are no living members of the mainland Mgar clan as it became extinct on November 11 of the year 1909 with the accidental murder of Tilija Hangma when an unknown bullet struck her in the crossfire in Courlaroux during the 1909 Revolution in Dormill and Stiura.

Other than Srijunga the Conqueror and his adopted son Mahang Mabo, every other ruler of the Khas-Kirat Empire was from the Mgar clan. Anyone could become a hang or hangma but only the "Divine Blood" Mgars could be elected as Mahangs and this selection process got even more strict after the Heavenly War of Hangates (1579 - 1701) as only "mainland Mgars of direct matrilineal descent" were allowed to become Mahangs. The namesake of the clan comes from Mgar, who was the wife of Mahang Mabo. It is claimed that her grandmother was either a heavenly spirit or an angel (depending on the person saying the tale); which gave rise to the idea of Divine Blood among Mgars and inbreeding that led to the eventual decline in their numbers. Since Mgar and Mabo had four daughters (and apparently even twelve granddaughters) with no male inheritor, the dynasty switched to matrilineal marriage. Due to the system of matrilineal marriage and their status as the imperial family, most Mgar descendants did not use the surname Mgar as opposed to other clans who use the name of their common ancestor as their surname. Instead, Mgars took the surnames of their spouses and gave birth to many cadet branches. In fact, members of the various "outer" cadets branches that split off from the "mainland" Imperial Mgar clan are still in existence in other Isles nations such as Havalland, Kachee, Kyrazakhstan, New Totzka (Asygno), Nhoor (Cenharruc-Mgar), Razzgriz (Ran), Samudera (Banser), San Montagna, Wellsia (Xiangu) and so on.

In case you didn't knew (or haven't put two and two together), the name of Magarat is derived from this very clan. In fact, Athara Magarat itself means "18 Mgar Lands" since it is composed of 18 hangates but the usage of such terminology is much older. From late 15th to early 20th Century, the name "Bara Magarat" (12 Mgar Lands) was applied to the Khas-Kirat Empire since there existed a long balance of power between 12 hangates in mainland Magarat. The term "Magarati" was in use as early as late 11th or the beginning of the 12th Century as the population had grown more and more cosmopolitan with not just Khas-Kiratis being part of the Empire as it grew larger and larger.

TBD stuff

01. Kisan


Kisan

The Kisans were initially an Argean Ipachi people who became "Kiratized" due to waves of Khas and Kirati migrations into their region. The Kisans were one of the few groups among the 40 Guns to have always been settled rice-cultivators compared to the nomadic tribes that surrounded them. Though older clans like the Nagesia are of Argean Ipachi descent, much of the newer Kisan clans trace their genealogy to Mitravarta. Despite their history of cultural assimilation, the Kisan people still retain their Kurukh language and are followers of Sarnaism (a religion worshiping the mother goddess represented as the world tree). At present, most of the Kisans live around the Koch Hangate in southeastern Magarat.

02. Kumal


Kumal

The Kumals are a Western Kirati tribe scattered across the Magarat region. They were traditionally renowned for their clay pottery. The nomadic Kumal women were noted to have equal status with men even in ancient times. They are notorious for sorting out their differences with drunken brawls. The Kumals have adopted the local languages and religions of the distant regions they had migrated to (such as Baranor, Almorea where they established the Kumal Hangate) but still occasionally remember and revere their tribal god Same; the lord of snakes. When the Great Kumal Migration to Almorea occurred, all other clans except for the Prajapati left Vendriothos. This event prompted the Prajapatis to readily accept 25 families or individuals from Nhoor as newer clans in their tribe.

03. Kusunda


Kusunda

The Kusundas are culturally unique than other Kirati tribes for their mother tongue is a language isolate and was brought back in 1990 after nearly two centuries of being extinct. Genetic studies have revealed that 270 individuals in Sakhi who identified as Kusunda are more lactose intolerant than any other Magarati population. Of them, only 30 are fluent in their native tongue and the Magarati government has launched various programs to promote the Kusunda language.

  • Kusunda: The sole remaining clan in the nearly extinct Mhyak Gun of the Kusunda tribe. The Kusunda family owns Sahakari Insurance. The Magarati government, following suggestions by Sahakari Insurance, "somewhat encourages" foreign individuals seeking Magarati citizenship to join this clan in order to increase the number of Kusunda speakers.

04. Tamu


Tamu

The Tamu (literally "horse people" in various Khas-Kirati languages) or Gurungs, are a Western Kirati tribe known for popularizing the Gurung Yantra (卍) symbol among the Khas-Kiratis. They are known for their martial arts disguised as colorful ritual dances such as the Ghatu style. They perform the argho upon a family member's death. Before marriage, a man is required to gift chhonam to his fiancee while she hands phonam to him. Most of the Tamu follow their tribal religion, the Gurung Dharma, combines elements of Buddhism with ancient shamanistic traditions while others identify as fully Buddhist.

Due to the Tamu invasion of the Tabajara Empire in 1122, they are present as a significant minority in Dragao do Mar; where their population is estimated to be around half a million. Only the double word clans have ancient Yaxa-Xrevaro descent (with the Ghales being the exception) whereas most of the single word clans are newer families merged into the Tamu tribe; especially from the various indigenous Marian peoples. In addition, all of the clans with -ja or -jo or -ju as suffix are descendants of Buddhists from the Four Kham Gun who deserted their tribes due to religious persecution first from Kham Shamanist and then Christian clan leaders.

  • Posaqh: An older Nhoor-origin clan descended from Tōnis Posaqh.

  • Praja: Literally means "Common Man" or "Subject" in various Khas-Kirati languages. The Chathaese hangs, who (despite traditionally following Chepang culture and traditions) were either from the Imperial Clan (or sometimes San Montagna-origin dynasties), lumped all of their Chepang "subjects" into one clan; hence the name. It has been argued that this was done as a strategic move to ensure that there would be no further clan wars which had made the Hangate of Chatha vulnerable to its enemies. However, dwindling numbers due to various wars against rival hangates and San Montagna eventually led to the Praja clan accepting newcomers (especially from Nhoor) into their gun as immigrant clans.

  • Sanhad: An older Nhoor-origin clan descended from Sanhad Ɵqorajy.

06. Chhantyal


Chhantyal

The ethnogenesis of the Chhantyals started when 12 nomadic clans were invited by the Santhali ruler Hu Murmu Hang of the Greater Ipachi Hangate to work as his mercenaries in exchange for grazing land. Conflicts with the Tharu clans of Marubhumi region and the various restrictions imposed upon them by Hu Murmu Hang's successor eventually resulted in these 12 nomadic clans revolting against the Santhals; who brought in the Chepang tribe to chase the rebels out of their territory. In 1066, after losing several battles to the Chepangs, Bhai Bhalanja the Bear led 6,000 warriors from these 12 clans and invaded Townside; establishing the namesake Chhantyal Hangate in the aftermath of the invasion.

While most Chhantyals today in both Athara Magarat and Townside are Buddhists, a few still worship old gods like Barah, Kuldebata, Sime Bhume and Mandali while some are followers of the Christ. The Chhantyals speak a Western Kirati language known as the Chhantyal Kham and it is very similar to Tamu Kyi and and the Kham language of the Four Kham tribes.

  • Bhalanja: A Western Kirati clan that was initially part of the Four Kham tribes. Initially shamanists, the Bhalanjas eventually embraced Buddhism due to marital alliances with the Gyapchans. The most notable member of this clan is Bhai Bhalanja the Bear, the leader of the Chhantyal Invasion of Townside. Most of the rulers of the Chhantyal Hangate hailed from this clan.

  • Budathoki: Another Western Kirati clan that was initially part of the Four Kham tribes. Alongside the Gharti and the Khadka, they are the only ones still worshiping the old gods.

  • Dandamare: A Western Kirati clan of unknown origin. They too embraced Buddhism from the Gyapchan.

  • Gharabja: Officially called the Chhantyal Gharabja. They are yet another Western Kirati clan that was initially part of the Four Kham tribes. The only Christian clan among the Chhantyals. The Chhantyal Gharabja are an off-shot of the Garbuja clan of the Pun and cousins of the Tamu Gharabja clan. It is said that Garbuja, the second son of First Shaman according to Four Kham legends, had a son and two daughters. The descendants of the son remained in the Four Kham tribal federation while the children of the daughters became the Chhantyal Gharabja and the Tamu Gharabja.

  • Gharti: Another Western Kirati clan that was initially part of the Four Kham tribes. Alongside the Budathoki and the Khadka, they are the only ones still worshiping the old gods.

  • Gyapchan: A Western Kirati clan that was initially member of the Thakali tribe. They are responsible for making Buddhism the prevalent religion among the Chhantyals through marital alliances.

  • Jhingraja: Another Western Kirati clan that was initially part of the Four Kham tribes. They too embraced Buddhism from the Gyapchan.

  • Khadka: Officially called the Chhantyal Khadka and the only non Western Kirati clan among the Chhantyals. The Chhantyal Khadka are a branch of the Northern Khas Khadka clan. Alongside the Budathoki and the Gharti, they are the only ones still worshiping the old gods.

  • Potlange: Another Western Kirati clan of unknown origin. They too embraced Buddhism from the Gyapchan.

  • Purane: Another Western Kirati clan of unknown origin. They too embraced Buddhism from the Gyapchan.

  • Singe: Another Western Kirati clan of unknown origin. They too embraced Buddhism from the Gyapchan.

10. Tamang


Tamang

The Tamang (literally "horse soldier" in various Khas-Kirati languages) are known their folks songs like Tamang Selo, Bhote Selo, High Geet and Deuta Geet as well as for dances such as the Damphu Naach and Sarswati Naach. These forms of entertainment have gradually evolved into Tam-pop, hugely popular among girls across the Isles, in the modern age. They have their own calendar known as the Lho. While almost all Tamangs are Buddhist, a minority still worship the tribal deity Lha. Worshipers of Lha must visit the sacred village of Ghyang on annual basis to perform the Kaling. There are also lesser clan-based ancestor deities known collectively as fola. Despite the practice being animist in nature, even Buddhist Tamangs light 108 lamps for their dead relatives. The head of a Tamang clan is known as mulmi. In Tamang society, a man can marry his sister-in-law upon his brother's death. As the tribe that established the Kilat Hangate in Samudera and surrounding areas, most of the Tamangs are now found in southern Gael.

Only 12 of the following rhui (Tamang: "clans") are of ancient Xrevaro-descent; hence the name "Twelve Tamang Gun" which was later changed into the Tamang Cavalry. The remaining clans can trace their origin mostly to Samudera, Suvurnia (Negarakita), Linaviar or Razzgriz.

14, 26, 27, 30 and 35. Danuwar, Yakkha, Rai, Limbu and Sunuwar


Yakkha


Rai


Limbu


Sunuwar

The Eastern Kiratis (Danuwar, Yakkha, Rai, Limbu and the Sunuwars) are what foreigners usually think of when they hear the word "Khas-Kirat". Despite now being divided into several different tribes (and sub-tribes), the clans within them share similar traditions and have shared history. Words such as "hang" are Eastern Kirati in origin.

TBD history stuff

Nowadays, most Yakkhas and Limbus reside in the Hangate of Arun Valley while Hangate of Khumbuwan is the homeland of the Rai. Significant number of the so-called "Kirat-Limbus" are found in various Argean or Gaelitic nations such as Alteran Republics, Dormill and Stiura, Noronica and Vancouvia. On the other hand, the Sunuwars are almost exclusively present only in Arvan while Danuwars can be found in Verdon.

Only clans with -ng at the end of their names are ancient Yaxa-Xrevaro families. The other clans are newer ones who were initially from diverse groups, mostly Argean Ipachis or Domans, but became "Kiratized" and got assimilated into the four Eastern Kirati tribes.

Tapu Sahar, historically known as Myagdi Island and also called Magarat Island or Little Magarat by foreigners, is one of the 18 hangates of Athara Magarat.

Originally a small village of Thakali traders ruled by the House of Mer-ma-shyang-di (who were, in turn, vassals of Liba Hangate); it became increasingly prominent as the seat of the Nyssic Colonial Empire in Central Argus and Raedlon after it came under Noronican rule following the Tea War of 1821. Initially, an island exclusively inhabited by Thakalis, the Four Kham and a few other Western Kirati tribes plus the Noronnicans, the population became more diverse due to refugees fleeing the Khas-Kirati mainland, which had become mired in various inter-hangate conflicts and multiple wars against foreign powers in the so-called Dark Century (1818 - 1918). Even after the Empire of Magarat took over Myagdi Island from the Noronnicans, it remained relatively unscathed from the devastating Imperial War. Post-Imperial War, the population of Myagdi Island (now called Tapu Sahar) rapidly increased as mainland Magarat (which had barely recovered from the great war) became involved in yet another set of inter-hangate conflicts and the 30th Parallel War against San Montagna.

With a population of 12 million, modern Tapu Sahar is considered to be the most populous city (and the only megacity) in the Isles (by the Magarati government). Out of Athara Magarat's 40 million population, roughly 30% identify as Tapuans or Myagdi Islanders.

Tapu Sahar is a major cultural hub and an international trendsetter in the arts, entertainment, gastronomy, and media. The island city has hosted multiple international events, including TBD events. Tapu Sahar is a leading center for research and development, represented by various universities, most notably the Tapu University.

Etymology


Myagdi Island is the historical name of Tapu Sahar; even though it is still frequently used by foreigners (especially Noronicans) for the island city. Myagdi Island is the Noronnican corruption of "Mer-ma-shyang-di Tapu" (Various Western Kirati languages: "Island With Mystical River").

The modern name Tapu Sahar, brought forth as a de-Nyssicization attempt, literally means "Island City" in many Khas-Kirati languages.

History


TBD as usual

Geograpghy


TBD again

Demographics


The official Magarati estimation (as of 2020) is that 12 million people live in Tapu Sahar. During the daytime, the population swells by over 2 million as workers and students commute from adjacent areas (especially from sister island city-hangates of New Forest and Tiwe Sivn).

Of Tapu Sahar's 12 million population, approximately 8.5 million are in the working-age (15 - 64), 2 million are retired (65+) and 1.5 million are juveniles (0 - 14).

While the use of Nyssic and Doman is dominant, Tapu Sahar is one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the Isles with nearly 300 languages spoken (and 125 of them being various local Khas-Kirati or Argean Ipachi languages). Only 4.8 million (40%) Tapuans identified as Khas-Kirati or Agrean Ipachi. In terms of single largest ethnic groups (aside from all Khas-Kirati and Argean Ipachi tribes being lumped together as a homogenous group), only the Domans and the Nyssic have crossed the 10% and both of them are the only ethnic groups to have over 1 million people in Tapu Sahar. The Domans comprise around 1.44 million (12%) of the island city's population; followed by the Nyssic at 1.2 million (10%). Nearly 4.32 million (36%) of the current Tapu Sahar population are not affiliated to the 36 Guns of Magarat; which means either they were born outside of the Athara Magarati Federation of Hangates or that their families have not established themselves as "immigrant clans" within the 36 Guns even after two or more generations (before the Imperial War, it was mandatory for new immigrant families to become the youngest clans of any of the guns for protection). Respondents in this category claimed to have origins in diverse nations such as TBD. The remaining 2% identified under the "Others" category.

Education


Tapu Sahar has many universities, junior colleges, and vocational schools. Many of Athara Magarat's most prestigious universities are in Tapu Sahar, including:

1. Tapu University
2. National University of Athara Magarat
3. Ingbadokpa University
4. Urmila Upadhyaya University
5. Tapu Institute of Technology
6. Myagdi Institute of Technology
7. Myagdi Medical College
8. Tapu University of Foreign Studies
9. Myagdi Marine Science College
10. Tapu University of the Arts
11. Agriculture University
12. Electronics University

All of the twelve listed above are public universities that run their courses either in Doman or Nyssic. There are also a few private universities well known for classes conducted solely in Nyssic, including the Noronican University of Management, Nyssic Church University and Magaidh University. D'árj (Ja-rah-Jzah) University is the only Doman-language private university in Tapu Sahar.

Tapu Sahar is also the headquarters of the TBDLeagueofTWiUni???CUUni??

Almost all kindergartens, elementary schools and primary schools in Tapu Sahar are operated by local wards or municipal offices; just like in every other Magarati city. The Tapu Hangate Board of Education runs almost all secondary schools. Nonetheless, there are nine prestigious private schools from kindergarten through high school:

1. Nyssic Church School

International academic and scientific research

Research and development in Athara Magarat are globally represented by several of Tapu Sahar's medical and scientific facilities, including Tapu University and other universities in the island city, which work in collaboration with many international institutions. The University of Townside, in particular, has a major working relationship related to academic and scientific research with almost all Tapu Sahar-based universities. Other partners Isles-wide include TBDs.
