Ändeland (English pronunciation:[endælæn]; Andelic: Ändelë) or Egalitarian Republic of Ändeland is a Parliamentary Republic in central east Tarephia. Ändeland is bordered to the east and north by the Inner Sea of Tarephia, to the northwest by the unclaimed territories of Tarephia, to the west by Holy Cross, and to the south, just across the Strait of the Inner Sea, to Mallorjhe. Its capital city is Barlë located on the delta of the Ändel Floo facing the coasts of Mallorjhe. Ändeland has an area of TBD km² (TBD mi²) and the population of the country reach almost 18 million people.

The first settlement of the country took place ca. 1800 on the northern coast of the Inner Sea, with the foundation of the city of Ändelo, country's first capital and current capital of the state of Ändelo. The settlement was named after a community of New Holland natives were escaping the Independence war, creating a city called Ändelo, the "city of the others". They expanded all the way south through the Central Valley and the Maritime Plateau, rapidly conquering the territory up to the southern bays and the Ádha archipelago. This refugees constructed day-by-day a new country proud of its differences, abolishing any kind of Monarchy or blood-based rights and promoting in such early times a society that gave the same rights to women and all the population no matter the origin, social status or orientations, explicitly forbidding any kind of public religious expression. Such a different society became widely known as an extreme rarity and therefore the Ändelics baptised their country with the name of "the land of the others".

Ändeland is a democracy organised in the form of parliamentary government under a constitutional republic.

Etymology

Ändeland means, according to its etymology, land of the others. The name comes from the unique characteristics of a society that refused to live under medieval rules prevailing in the world. The first settlers of Ändelo came from New Holland and Latina, so a natural mix of Dutch and Castellanese raised, creating the Andelic.
