Malesoria, officially the Republic of Malesoria (Malesorian: Republika e Malësorisë), is a country in central Uletha. It is situated in the Iviran region, and shares land borders with Suria to the north, UL17h and Qennes to the east, Demirhan Empire to the south and southwest, and UL07f to the west. It borders the Antharian enclave of Adakale on the Kiran river to the south, and also shares a lake border with Antharia to the east. Malesoria covers an area of 175,156 sq km (67,628 sq mi), and has a population of 16.8 million. The capital city, Talrasin (Malesorian: Tëlrasan), is located in the central part of the country, whereas the largest city, Portat e Arta, lies on the short Iviran Coast to the southeast. The sole official language of the country is Malesorian, and the vast majority of the population is ethnically Malesorian.

Malesorian history is a rich tapestry of cultural, political, and social developments that spans over several millennia. The Dacenians were the earliest known inhabitants of the region, followed by the Hellanesian rule in the 3rd century BCE. Following the fall of the Hellanesian power, the area came under the influence of various Antharian, Turquese, and Surian rulers. In the late Middle Ages, the territory of modern-day Malesoria experienced the rise of several independent feudal states, including the Principality of Topojë and the First Kingdom of Malesoria. The Demirhan Empire conquered most of Malesoria in the 16th century, subjecting it to over three centuries of foreign rule. During this period, Malesorians maintained their language, culture, and traditions, preserving their distinct identity.

The 19th century saw a wave of national awakening among the Malesorians, fueled by ideas of romantic nationalism and the emerging concepts of self-determination and nationhood. Following the turmoil in the Demirhan Empire, the Second Kingdom of Malesoria was proclaimed in 1886. The newly formed nation faced numerous challenges, including territorial disputes, political instability, and foreign interventions. Throughout the Great War, the country was led by the communist leader Gëzim Delvina who established a totalitarian regime, isolating Malesoria from the rest of the world. Delvina's death in 1969 caused a ferocious two-year civil war, in which his son, Lirim Delvina, proclaimed the victory. The Second Civil War in the 1980s brought a transition to a multi-party democracy, but faced challenges of corruption and organized crime. In recent decades, Malesoria has made significant strides in consolidating its democracy, strengthening its economy, and pursuing Ulethan integration. The country has undertaken reforms, improved its infrastructure, and engaged in regional cooperation.

The knowledge about prehistoric Malesoria is limited due to the scarcity of written records and the reliance on archaeological evidence. The earliest evidence of human presence in the territory of modern-day Malesoria dates back to the Middle Paleolithic era, with traces of stone tools and animal remains found in the caves near Lemnushë.

Neolithic rock found in Odheshë Cave, Vardhë.

During the Neolithic period, around 6,000 to 4,000 BCE, agricultural practices emerged, leading to the establishment of settled communities. The cultivation of crops, such as wheat, barley, and legumes, and the domestication of animals became essential for subsistence. Excavations at sites like Dhaliq, Parrëdezi, and Njashtëmi have uncovered Neolithic settlements, pottery, and agricultural tools.

The Bronze Age marked a significant development in technology and trade. Advanced tools, weapons, and jewellery were produced, indicating the use of more sophisticated metallurgical techniques. The discovery of large tumuli (burial mounds) and grave goods at sites like Vidhovë and the Tumulus of Gjofkëndi provides insights into the social hierarchy and burial practices of the time.

From the late Bronze Age onwards, the Dacenians emerged as the dominant culture in the region. They established a series of tribal states in the western Iviran region. Dacenian hillforts, along with fortified settlements, have been discovered, indicating the defensive nature of the communities. Archaeological findings suggest trade connections with neighbouring cultures, such as the Moorsh people. It is believed that present-day Malesorians are the descendants of various Dacenian tribes. However, due to the lack of written records, the knowledge of their origin, and specific political or social organisation is limited.


During the 4th and 3rd centuries BCE, the Dacenians came into contact with the expanding Hellanesian colonies along the Iviran coast. Their influence gradually spread, leading to the Hellanisation of certain southern Dacenian regions. The first recorded encounter of Hellanesians and one Dacenian tribe, the Leuseti, comes from the First Periplous of the Iviran Sea, an ancient manuscript written in the late 4th century BCE. By the end of the first millennium BCE, several Hellanesian colonies were established in the Lower Kiran Valley, notably Artoporos (present-day Portat e Arta) and Somnos (present-day Somër). Following internal conflicts and external pressures, prominently the Antharian independence in the late 2nd century CE, the Hellanesian-controlled area was fragmented into smaller entities, mostly in the form of semi-independent city-states. The authorities encouraged trade, and the major cities served as important centres for commerce, facilitating exchanges with other Hellanesian territories and neighbouring regions.

Around 250 CE, Artoporos and the surrounding area were incorporated into the Antharian Kingdom, whereas the other city-states of the Kiran Valley, united under the short-lived Despotate of Asionos, showed fierce resistance. The Fall of Motos (present-day Motas) in 298 CE marked the end of the Antharian conquest of the Malesorian Iviran coast.

Portat e Arta was founded around 90 BCE as the Hellanesian colony of Artoporos.

Meanwhile, rural areas of the Central Highlands were the subject of different attempts at tribal organisation which would eventually lead to the first mention of the unnamed Malesorian tribe in the 3rd century. The Malesorian name was attested for the first time in 306 CE in the works of Hellanesian historian Bimocles, affirming that Malesorian rulers had both peaceful interactions and conflicts with coastal city-states, particularly those of Somnos and Tersalia. From the early 5th century on, these Malesorian unstable, consanguineal associations were often challenged by frequent raids of various Slevic hordes.

Middle Ages

The rise of the Surs under Prince Igor the Bold in the late 7th century posed a significant threat to Malesorian tribal lands. The invasions under his rule disrupted the existing social and political order, leading to a period of instability. Until the early 10th century, Antharians, Kartlegians, Surs, and the nomadic Semic tribes exerted their influence over the Malesorian lands. The Semic principality of Mevs (Malesorian: Maveshë) played a significant role in hindering the Southern Sur Campaign in 705–714 CE, attempting to reach the Gulf of Erez.

In 921 CE, the first notable Malesorian state, the Princedom of Bëloti, emerged in the western present-day Malesoria. A beneficiary of trade routes between the Hellanesian south and the Slevic inland, the Bëloti family expanded their territory to the Lake of Sens (Malesorian: Liqeni i Tëredes), impending the Iviran Principality and Po'ion territories to the east. The Battle of Verguence (1012–13) marked the definite end of the Bëloti advancement to the east for the next two centuries. In the 11th century, several Malesorian regions became recognized as separate or autonomous dominions. The tribal rulers contended over territories, usually without a sense of ethnic unity.

The significant historical development in the region occurred in 1180 when Ardit of Zal unified three Malesorian principalities into the First Kingdom of Malesoria. King Ardit introduced a centralized administration, established a feudal system, and implemented various reforms to strengthen his rule. His son Dritan pursued military campaigns against neighbouring states, including the Romanish Kingdom and the Despotate of Burraj, further extending the kingdom's territory. The dynasty of Zal encouraged the development of art, literature, and education, maintaining good relations with Antharia and Qennes.

Malesoria is a representative democracy organised as a unitary, semi-presidential republic. The country is governed based on a multi-party democratic system and the separation of powers between the legislative, executive, and judicial branches. The current constitution was approved and adopted in 1996. Most political research institutes and think tanks rate Malesoria as a "flawed democracy" in 2023.

Executive functions are held by both the government and the president. The latter is elected by popular vote for a maximum of two terms of five years and appoints the prime minister who in turn appoints the Council of Ministers.

The legislative branch of the government, collectively known as the Assembly (Asambleja), consists of two chambers, the Senate (Senati) and the Chamber of Deputies (Dhoma e Deputetëve), whose members are elected every four years by simple plurality.

The justice system is independent of the other branches of government and is made up of a hierarchical system of courts with the Supreme Court being located in Portat e Arta, thus serving as the judicial capital of the country.

The economy of Malesoria has undergone significant transformation since the country transitioned from a centrally planned system to a market-oriented economy in the 1980s. While challenges remain, Malesoria has made notable progress in various sectors and has experienced economic growth and increased integration with international markets. Malesorian economy is classified as an upper-middle-income economy in 2023.

Due to their high population, modern infrastructure, and favourable geographical location, the cities of Talrasin and Portat e Arta comprise the economic and financial centre of Malesoria. The country's most important infrastructure facilities take course through both of the cities, connecting the north to the south as well as the west to the east.

Primary sector

Agriculture has traditionally been an important sector in Malesoria, employing a significant portion of the population. The central and southern portions of the country have fertile land and favourable climate for agricultural production. Livestock farming is an essential component of Malesorian culture. Shepherding has been a traditional way of life in the Northern and Central Highlands for centuries, deeply ingrained in the region's culture and history. Shepherds in the mountains typically lead a semi-nomadic or transhumant lifestyle, moving their flocks between highland pastures in the summer and lower elevations in the winter. It is estimated that about 3,000 families still practice seasonal migration of sheep, goats, and cattle to sustain their livelihoods. Another notable agricultural population are smallholder farmers who cultivate small plots of land using traditional methods. The most of national fruit, vegetable, and cereal production is still yielded this way.

More than 26% of the land is used for agricultural purposes, and one of the earliest farming sites in Uletha has been found in the southeast of the country. Key agricultural products include fruits, vegetables, dairy products, livestock, and tobacco. Efforts have been made to modernize the sector, improve agricultural practices, and enhance productivity.

Secondary sector

Shkonjë chromium mine near Dreres, Errez-Kambunar.

Malesoria possesses significant mineral resources, including aluminium (bauxite), chromium, copper, lead, and nickel. The mining industry has historically played a crucial role in the Malesorian economy, particularly during the communist era when it was one of the country's major sectors. Recently, the industry faced challenges due to outdated technology, inadequate infrastructure, and environmental concerns. Nevertheless, Malesoria was one of the largest producers of nickel and chromium in Uletha in 2022. Gozhdarashtë mine is the most important coal mine in the country, accounting for one-fifth of the national production.

Since the fall of the communist regime, the secondary sector has seen considerable changes and diversification. Although still lagging behind neighbouring countries, Malesoria has developed various industries, like electronics, manufacturing, and textiles. The construction sector has experienced expansion, driven by infrastructure development projects and private investments. The energy sector has seen improvements in hydroelectric power generation and renewable energy initiatives.

Tertiary sector

The tertiary sector is the country's fastest-expanding sector. About 35% of the population is employed in services, which accounts for 59% of the country's GDP. Since the end of the 20th century, the banking industry has been a prominent component of the tertiary sector, and it has remained in good health overall thanks to privatization and solid monetary policy. Tourism, in particular, has emerged as a major driver of economic growth. Malesoria's natural beauty, historical sites, and coastal areas attract a growing number of visitors each year. In 2022, it directly accounted for 7% of GDP, though including indirect contributions pushes the proportion to just over 15%. The government has focused on promoting tourism infrastructure and investing in the development of tourist destinations.


Malesorian road and railway infrastructure considerably lags behind the rest of the Iviran region, despite the recent efforts to upgrade the main national and Pan-Ulethan corridors. The motorway coverage doubled in the last 15 years, and it is expected to reach 2,000 km by 2030. An extensive network of toll-free expressways is being constructed to support a widespread, but heavily burdened state road grid. With 306 motor vehicles per 1,000 people, Malesoria ranks low in Uletha, although the contrast is high between the scarcely populated North and the heavily urbanised South.

The railway infrastructure in rural Malesoria is relatively basic, with single-track lines and limited electrification.

The railway network is administrated by the public company Railways of Malesoria. The coverage is limited to the urban and industrial centres, and it has been in continuous decline in the last few decades over the rising car dependency and bus usage. Portat e Arta railway station serves as an important stop on the Iviran intercity railway link.

Talrasin International Airport is the busiest air hub in the country, closely followed by Sorë-Portat e Arta International Airport in the Adthe region. They account for more than 90% of total air traffic and provide daily domestic, regional, and international connections throughout the year. The national flag carrier MassAir carried 5.6 million passengers in 2023.

The Port of Malesoria, located in Portat e Arta's satellite town of Portilumës, is the only cargo and passenger seaport in the country. In 2022, it welcomed 923 thousand passengers and had an annual cargo tonnage of 15.8 million tons. Due to the sufficient navigability of the Kiran River deep inland, cargo is also transported to and from the ports of Bliri, Somër and Tekinanë.

Energy production is primarily reliant on hydropower and lignite coal. Oil and natural gas fields in the Upper Kiran Valley cover about 65% of national consumption. Bliri oil terminal connects to the refineries in Bertakë, Hoxhaj and Ilinjasi. A nuclear power plant and a liquified natural gas terminal in cooperation with neighbouring countries have been discussed.
