Eshein, officially the Kingdom of Eshein (Eshen: Kunigen av Eshein, Gaerman: Königreich von Esheyn) is a small sovereign state in eastern Uletha bordered by Mergany and Viljanni to the north, by Nelavia to the south, by the Darcodian Sea to the west and by the Gulf of Volta (Ardentic Ocean) to the east. The capital city and the largest city is New Tyrrin. Eshein is devided into two states: Keswerg, the northern side of the Strait of Owneheym, and Atelfain, in the southen side. The division into two states existed from the beginning of Eshein, even before, when Eshein was "The Colony of New Colsex". The immigrants from Ingerland satteled in the north, in Keswerg, and the Mergans from the time that Eshein's land was ruled by Mergany, forced to reside in the south, in Atelfain. Immigration from both countries is still legal, although the nationality of the first settlers is Eshen today.
Eshein is a member of the Eastern Ulethan Organisation of Independent Allies (EUOIA) and the Assembly of Nations. Eshein, as it is today, was created in the ending of 1806 by the first queen of Eshein, Queen Angela The Founder. Before the creation of the Kingdom of Eshein, Eshein was ruled by the Mergans (untill 1674), the Ingrans (1674-1806) and the Midistlandese (few months in 1806, still belonged to the Ingrans).

Etymology

The name Eshein comes from the Eshen language (Eshenska), whiche created from a combination of Ingerish and Gaerman. The word "Esh" in Eshen means "Ashes" and it was chosen as the name of the country in order to symbolize the rebelion of queen Angela in her husband king Whotch, kibg of Atacoma del Norte, Midistland. The rebellion caused many people to leave their home states and join the ideological queen in her journey to founding a new state. The word ash symbolizes the ashes that were left after the queen burnt her husband's palace in Tengah, Midistland.

The State of Gaermanspachiger (1421-1674)

Eshein's land was ruled by Mergany Flag.png Mergany and was a part of it, Separation of Mergany in 1434, as the state of Gaermanspachiger, untill it was occupide by Ingerland-flag.png Ingerland in "The Battle of Midge" in 1674. It was one of Mergany's states and it was called "Gaermanspachiger", which means "Gaerman-Speaking" in Gaerman. The reason for this name was because it was the only Gaerman-speaking state in Mergany, an not Mergan-speaker like the rest of Mergany's states.

New Colsex (1674-1806)

In 1673 the land was ruled by Ingerland-flag.png Ingerland after they occupied from Mergany Flag.png Mergany in "The Battle of Midge". The reason for the occupation was to have a piece of land in the east, for trade purposes, as a colony. After the occupation, the Ingrans named the land "New Colsex", after the land of "Colsex" in Ingerland and it was it's name until the ending of 1806. The Mergan population forced to live in the south so the Ingrans would live in the north. That's what created the division into two states in 1742, in The New Colsex Treaty, which was an agreement between the New-Colsexish Ingrans to the New-Colsexish Mergans about territory (creation of the two states) and collaborations between the two states. The two states still exist in the modern Eshein. The states are Keswerg and Atelfain.

Kingdom of Eshein (from 1806)

In the Begging of the 19th century, in 1806, Midistland national flag.png Midistland got the control over "New Colsex" from the Ingerans (althogh is still belonged to the Ingans) after king Whotch, the king of "Atacoma del Norte" (which used to be a self-governing kingdom inside Midistland) married an Ingeran princesses, PrincessesAngela Rewirton. She became Queen Angela of "Atacoma del Norte". At the ending of the same year, when she turned 25, She got tired of her cruel husband and from Midistland and she took over "New Colsex" with a small army she recruited of Ingerans and Midistlandeses in order to creat a new kingdom, away from her husband and away from Ingerland, where she knew her father will marry her to another man she won't like. Most of the Mergan residents, which hated the Ingrans, joined the fight against the Ingrans and the Midistlandeses. In the end of this war, "Eshein's Great War", most of the Ingrans that lived in Keswerg foght for Angela's side, against Ingerland and Midistland. They were influenced by the ideas of freedom and saw Angela as their true queen (because she was the daughter of the Ingran king). Angela named her new kingdom "Eshein" after the ashes that were left after she set her husband's palace in Tengah, Midistland , on fire when she ran.

In these elections, every Eshen citizen can vote for the president he/she thinks is the best to lead the country for the second round (between the 2 leading candidates). The first presidential round is held every five years in the 1st of October of the fifth year. At the same day of the second round of the presidential elections, the Eshens also vote for their favorite regional senator candidate. In each province, the 5 candidate who got most of the votes, win a place in the senate. Every Eshen can vote only in his province of residence for his senator, and every person can vote for only on senator. Esehns who reside outside of Eshein or traveling abroad can vote in the Eshen embassy or in the EUOIA embassy in his/her location, if there is one. The national assembly is appointed by the percentage of the votes for the president in the second round of the presidential elections, which means the Eshens can't vote for the representatives directly. The more votes the candidate gets in the second round, the more seats his party will have in the assembly.

The following countries have embassies in Eshein:

Demographics

There are 5.3 million residents in Ehsein: 2.3 million in Keswerg and 3 million in Atelfain (one third of them live in the capital, New Tyrrin)

Ethnicity

There are 3 major ethnic groups in Eshein: Eshens (74%), Mergans (12%) and Ingrans (14%).

Eshens

They are 74% of Eshein's population, 4 million people. The Eshen ethnic group is a very new ethnic group (aproximatly 300 years) and it was created out of the combination of the Ingrans and the Mergans who live in Eshein. The previous name of this group was "New Colsexens". The name changed when Eshein was founded, in 1806 to "Eshens". During the 17th century, "New Colsexen" was used as a curse word, both by the Ingrans and the Mergans, which didn't like each other and hated the ones who mixed with the other. The Eshens live all over Ehsein.

Ingrans

Because of the Eshen immigration policy, which allows Ingrans and Mergans immigrate freely to Eshein, there is a large group of Ingrans in Eshein, 14% of the entire population, 740,000 people. The Ingrans are immigrants from Ingerland-flag.png Ingerland, a country in the western Uletha, which used to rule Eshein from 1674 untill 1806. Most of the Ingrans live in Keswerg, because it is an Ingerish-speaking state.

Mergans

Much like the Ingrans, Because of the Eshen immigration policy, there is a large group of Mergans in Eshein, 12% of the entire population, 630,000 people. The Mergans are immigrants from Mergany Flag.png Mergany, a country that bordered Eshein by the north. Eshein used to a part of Mergany untill 1674. Most of the Mergans live in Atelfain, because the Mergan language is a national language in this state.

Other Ethnic Groups

The aren't many other Ethnic groups in Eshien because of it's strict immigration policy.

Languages

Most of the population speaks Eshen , the national and official language of Eshein. In order to become a citizen you have to speak fluent Eshen and to pass a hard test in this language. Students and non-citizens can stay up to 4 years without speaking fluent Eshen. There are 5 million speakers of Eshen in Eshein.
Another official language is Ingerish, which stayed official language since the Ingerish control. It is mostly spoken in Keswerg. There are 3 million native speakers of Ingerish in Eshein.
The last official language is Gaerman, which was the language of the Mergans who live in Ehsein while it still was a part of Mergany, before the Ingrans occupied it (and not Mergan like the rest of Mergany). It is mostly spoken in Atelfain. There are 2 million native speakers of Gaerman in Eshein.
The only national language that isn't official language is Mergan. It stayed an national language after the ingerans occupied Eshein, like Gaerman, but there wasn't enogh speakers of this language in order to make it an official language in 1806. It is mostly spoken in Atelfain. There are 600,000 native speakers of Mergan in Eshein.

Religion

58% of all the population is Christians and 40% are Atheists. The left 2% of the population is Jewish (1.8%) and Muslim(0.2%).
