The Semanish Republic (Semanish: TRANSLATION), commonly known as Semanya (Semanish: Semaņa), is a landlocked nation in Eastern Uletha. It is bordered by Jahta to the north, UL28b to the east, UL31a to the south, and UL28a to the west. The country covers approximately 86,900 km² (≈33,600 sq. mi), along with an additional 3,408 km² (1,316 sq. mi) of maritime territory, and has a population of around 6.5 million. The capital is Renkesi, and the official language is Semanish.

Etymology

The Ingerish name “Semanya” is a direct transliteration of the Semanish endonym. The origin of the name “Semaņa” remains a heavily-debated topic.


History

Antiquity

The first settlements in present-day Semanya were situated along the Jana River in the east around the 4th century BCE, though these would not become permanent until the 1st century CE. The earliest evidence of permanent settlements in present-day Semanya can be found in the area surrounding the earliest tributaries of the Miven in the west later in the 2nd century BCE.

Semanya is a landlocked country defined by its geography. It can easily be divided into three rough geographic regions – the large lakes in the west, where most of the population can be found, the Amtani Mountains in the south and center of the country, and the expansive Jana River basin in the eastern half of the country that constitutes much of the Semanya’s flat and arable land. The nation's highest point, Mount Hėnele, can be found in the Amtani Mountains and has an elevation of 2,811 meters (9,222 feet).

Semanya borders three major lakes. The largest, Lake Șakara, drains into the Darcodian Sea in Reeland. To its east is Lake Meņar, which drains into Lake Șakara. South of Lake Șakara is Lake Aranko, which drains into the Darcodian Sea along the Thanland-UL27e border.

Semanya Csb (C6C700), BSk (FFDB63), Csa (FFFF00), Csc(in the mountains) (969600), Dsc (mountains) (963295), Dsb (mountains) (C600C7), Cwb (63C764)

Semanya primarily falls under the dry temperate climate (Csb, Csa) classification in the west, and the oceanic climate (Cwb) in the east. The extreme southwest of the country experiences a semi-arid climate (BSk) at lower elevations. In some areas near the coast, as well as the northern foothills, a variant of the dry temperate climate (Csc) can be found. This zone can also be found in parts of the Amtani Mountain range in the south. The humid continental climate (Dsb, Dsc) can also be found in Semanya, though it is restricted to select areas of the northern foothills, and can be found in the southern mountains.




Administrative divisions

Semanya has three kinds of administrative divisions: regions, counties, and independent cities. There are 81 counties in Semanya, each with its own representative to the Kevelaseņa. There are only two independent cities in Semanya – Renkesi and Įautala, the two most populous areas of the country. Each independent city has three representatives in the Kevelaseņa. The counties and independent cities are grouped into four regions, which hold no administrative power and merely exist for data collection and large-scale cultural association.

The main government body is known as the Kevelaseņa, which roughly translates to "Senate" in Ingerish. It is made up of 87 kevelas ("senators"). The head of government is the Premier, elected by the members of the Kevelaseņa to lead the government until the next election cycle. The Semanish Premier works in close proximity to the Semanish President. The President holds a primarily ceremonial role in government, primarily acting as an ambassador for the world and the head of state. The Premier has a cabinet consisting of eleven members. They are, in order of succession:

  • The Foreign Minister, who acts as the top authority on foreign policy, international alliances and trade, as well as foreign intelligence.
  • The Defense Minister, who acts as the third-in-command for the Semanish military and is considered the top advisor to both the President and Premier regarding military affairs, border security, and SEMPOL, the national police force.
  • The Judicial Minister, who acts as the primary legal advisor to the President and the Premier.
  • The Treasury Minister, who is responsible for managing government funds, budget distribution, tax collection, public funding, and regulating government income.
  • The Health Minister, who acts as the top advisor on medical affairs, including disease response, clinic and hospital management, childcare, senior care, cemeteries, public safety, and health care.
  • The Labor Minister, who acts as the top authority on labor unions, workplace safety, employment, and commerce.
  • The Development Minister, who acts as the top authority on housing, infrastructure, roads, and transportation.
  • The Education Minister, who acts as the top authority in the country on educational affairs, including public education, tertiary education, government-sponsored scholarships, etc.
  • The Agriculture Minister, who acts as top authority on management of agricultural production and distribution.
  • The Domestic Minister, who acts as the top authority on management of natural resources, preservation of land, and manages certain cultural aspects (such as the Semanish Language Institute).
  • The Energy Minister, who acts as the primary figure concerning Semanya's energy production, consumption, and distribution.

The President has their own cabinet consisting of six members, three of which are also members of the Premier's cabinet (the Foreign Minister, Defense Minister, and Judicial Minister). The additional three members are:

  • The Minister of Culture, who is the President's advisor on upholding the Semanish culture, language, and identity. The role of the Minister of Culture can best be seen in the tourism industry.
  • The Minister of Welfare, who is the President's advisor on the well-being of the general population, as well as the relationship between the general population and the government.
  • The Minister of Presidential Affairs, who is the President's advisor on public image and appearances as well as non-policy-oriented domestic affairs.

Elections are held every year on the first Sunday of March. Every two years, the kevelas are up for re-election, and the newly-elected Kevelaseņa convenes on the third Sunday of July to elect a Premier. Every four years, the President is up for re-election. The President has a two-term limit, whereas there is the only restriction on the Premier is that they may not serve as Premier again if they are voted out (in other words, if a new Premier is elected, the incumbent is no longer eligible for Premiership). Once the Premier is chosen by the Kevelaseņa, a four-week-long transition period begins, with the new government taking hold on the first Monday in April.

Coalition governments have become the standard practice in Semanya – no single political party has earned an absolute majority in the legislature since the 1967 election, where the now-defunct Rose Party earned 59 seats. The coalition government that formed after the 2021 election consists of the NLP and the UNP – a total of 47 seats.

Semanya primarily uses an instant-runoff voting system in national elections, apart from the independent cities, which use a single transferable vote system.

The government in its current state has been in power since 5 April 2021, with the President having been in power since 3 April 2017. The next elections are scheduled to take place on 5 March 2023.

The current makeup of the 2021 Kevelaseņa consists of five political parties:

  • National Party (NLP): center-right; liberal conservatism, rule of law, mixed economy
  • Social Justice Party (SJP): center-left to left-wing; social democracy, progressivism, internationalism
  • New Semanish Party (NSP): center-left; individualism, fiscal liberalism, national identity
  • Union Party (UNP): center-right to right-wing; national conservatism, human welfare
  • Liberation Party (LBP): left-libertarian; cultural liberalism, social equality, personal freedom

Culture

Symbols

Historically, the Semanish people have used many different things to call their own: the colors red, yellow, and blue; plants such as the argan tree, clothing such as the biri cap and the qáratsa vest, but by far the most recognizable symbol of the Semanish people is the Qeren rose.

Flag

Color scheme Red Yellow Blue
CMYK 0/79/84/27 0/29/78/0 90/67/0/34


The flag is made up of a blue fess bordered by yellow bands, which in turn are bordered by red bands. A Qeren rose can also be found in the canton of the flag. According to the country's official interpretation of the flag, the blue represents wisdom, peace, balance, integrity, and loyalty; the yellow represents the perennial wealth and prosperity of the country, as well as the sun; and the red represents the courage, strength, and endurance of the Semanish people. The blue represents integrity and peace, the yellow represents perennial wealth and generosity, and red represents bravery and brotherhood.

Holidays

The Semanish government commemorates a number of "national days" to honor significant events in the country's history. One such event is Semanya Day, celebrated every year on 8 April to commemorate the establishment of the Semanish state in its current form on this day in 1957. Other cultural festivals are recognized nationally as holidays, such as Hinikuvi, a summer solstice festival which is celebrated by watching the sun rise and set on the longest day of the year.

Music

Music is one of the most important aspects of Semanish culture. The most prevalent form of Semanish music is polyphonic singing, a performance style determined by gender in Semara. Men always sing polyphonically in quintets (groups of five), whereas women can sing polyphonically in either trios or quartets.

Musical instruments such as the xasan

The main instruments used are the daira, doli, and panduri.

In the west, you can hear the (instrument) (tongueless salamuri), (instrument) (chonguri), (instrument) (changi) and (instrument) (diplipito). In the east, you can hear the (instrument) (duduki), (instrument) (tongued salamuri), and the (instrument) (pilili).

Western music tends to feature percussion and plucked instruments more prominently, whereas Eastern music features small woodwind instruments more heavily. In the eastern city of Sah̦an, the culture of Eastern Semanish music is well preserved.

Art & Architecture

Art is important.

Semanya is known for its unique architectural style. Known as “Semanish Baroque”, this style is known for its emphasis on geometric form and distinct lack of exterior ornamentation. The best examples of this style are the Assembly House and Cathedral of Saint Carine in Renkesi (when mapping the cathedral, it should be 37m x 81m).

The most famous buildings in the country include the Assembly House (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herrerian_style#/media/File:Palacio_de_Santa_Cruz6.jpg), the Cathedral of Saint Carine (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Mosteiro_de_S%C3%A3o_Vicente_de_Fora#/media/File:Lisbon_(49190910067).jpg),
