The Constitutional Republic of Auronia, or simply Auronia (Aurona in Auronian, Avaronna in Old Auronian), is a country in northeast Tarephia. It's capital and largest city is Koescad located in the east. It is bordered by Targueral to the northwest, TA011 to the north, TA013 to the west, and the Asperic Ocean to the east and south. It also has a short maritime boundary with TA014a.

The country has a rich history of conflicts with colonists and itself. Earliest proofs this country existed sets it back to 1002, with native weapons and tools found in many villages throughout the nation.

Based on the 2019 census, Auronia has 22,4 million people, with the population increasing by 0.4% since 2009.

Etymology

The name Auronia comes from the Old Auronian word for wreath - Avarono, which together with the Ingerish influence, evolved to Auron. The laurel wreath, as seen in the flag of Auronia, is supposed to represent peace of the nation, due to the harsh history of Auronia.

Another possible theory explains that Auronia got it's name from the word Orna which translates to non-aggresive, which is also connected to peace.

Geography

Terrain

Heightmap of Auronia.

Auronia is a country located in the northeast of Tarephia, a specific area in the continent. The terrain is 55% flat, under 500 meters, 32% is composed of hills between 500m and 2000m. The final 13% is made up from the mountains of above 2000 meters above sea level. The highest peak is Ques Kas (Ing. Kas Mountain) with 4391m above sea level, located in the municipality of Queskas, which got it's name after the peak. The Kas mountain sees rare snow every 15 years, and surprisingly has two ski pistes in the Queskas Mountain Resort. Both are used on the very rare occasions when it snows on the peak. The Kas mountain is a popular year-round tourist spot, due to being a national park, and home to many natural monuments, and is popular spot for hiking, camping and climbing mountains. The rest of the north (Kas Mountains) and central (Auronian Mountains) parts are also hilly and mountainous. In between the mountain chains lies to most important part of the country - the Auronian Plain. A mostly flat area, which runs along the Auronia River. It's considered the breadbasket of Auronia, as almost 75% of the farmlands are located here. It is also home to most of the population. Cities like Boskamp, Kapoeta, Kosrae and Eelido are all located here, and play a major role in the nation. The capital - Koescad is located just 70km northeast of the plain.

The rest of the east is flat, with occasional swamps and bays. The far south is a bit hillier than the east, and the west transitions back to flat grasslands and smaller steppes and savannas.

The northeast and north is dominated by the steppes, and on the transition from the rainforests on the Kas Mountain, to the steppes, lies to most important economical section of Auronia. The Dateo Municipality is home to 75% of the mines in Auronia, and is home to 95% tungsten, 85% coal, 80% lead, 70% diamond, 65% coal, and 30% of the gold reserves.

There are more than 10 islands off the coast of Auronia, such as the Tusken Island, home to the Tusken people. Another important economic role are the Vivedian Islands. They are located on a underwater oil field, which accounts 97% of all Auronian oil and gas reserves. They are also starting to become a popular tourist attraction.

The second biggest island is the Kesland Island. Home to a Castellanese majority, owned as a overseas territory of Antigo.

Water coverage

Fresh water

Auronia, besides the sea territories, has a very low percentage of water out of it's total territory. Major bodies of water include Auronia River, Koescad River, Kostmaa River and the artificially made, Kapoeta Reservoir. Historically, the rivers where used for drinking, washing, bathing, swimming, sailing and most importantly fishing. Auronia River was a excellent connection for the inland tribes towards the sea. Today, the Kapoeta reservoir and some smaller lakes and rivers are used for drinking, while the major river confluences and estuaries are used for ports.

Sea waters

The sea played a major role in the history of Auronia. Since the first days, at least 50% lived within 50 kilometers of the coast. Today, 5 out of 6 cities are located on the coast. The by far most important body of water is the Baile Aurona (Bay of Auronia). It is home to almost 5 million people (33% of Auronia), and it includes cities like Industis, Gourpent, Kostmaa, some of the suburban cities like Ledoven, Gatoped, Lotus, Mourintta. In the largest span of the metropolitan area of the bay it includes cities such as Tuskemaar and Tessed. However, the bay is home to the most important city in all of Auronia, the capital, Koescad. Built on a perfect natural harbor, surrounded by shallow water, Koescad's position enabled it to grow much faster than other cities in Auronia. Trading is crucial through the bay and is home to the 2 international ports serving Auronia.

Other significant bodies of water include the Bay of Vibo, Bay of Viveda, Great Devevente Bay and the R'daren Strait.

Vegetation, Biosphere and Climate

Auronia is a tropical country. It's composed of rainforests, which get a lot of rain, and it also has many grasslands used for agriculture. During the 33-year long colonization of Auronia by Ingerland, the Ingerish started a huge lumber industry and thereby cut down 35% of Auronia's forests. The benefit of it is that today Auronia has much more space available for agriculture, however the ecosystem is destroyed.

Administration

Auronia is divided into 30 municipalities or Dosmaa. A few municipalities form a statistical region that is not official in the constitution. Those regions are:

Every inhabited place categorized as city automatically receives a municipality. Below are all the cities with both their populations, and the populations of their municipalities

*Unlike every other municipality, which uses it's seat name as the municipality name, Niqloed uses the official name as Vivedian Islands, due to the greater autonomy than other municipalities.

**As for every other municipality, the water coverage is included. Otherwise, the land area is much smaller.

The Formation of the new Auronian Government

As of 2002, Auronia is a constitutional republic, which means the highest act of the country, the Auronian Constitution addresses the way the country should function.

After being a dictatorship for 101 year, and finally receiving some outside help to get rid of the dictatorship, the people were "forced" to attend the 2003 Auronian Voting Campaign. It was started as the first and most important voting campaign for Auronia, as it will probably affect the future of the country.

On the campaign, people voted for a flag, and other symbol that would represent the new Auronia. The first "new" president (or king) was also choosen, and as the most important part, the government of Auronia. People could choose between a republic and monarchy, and choose between different types of the two.

Due to the importance of this vote, the citizens (mostly aged 35+) got a bit more interested, and researched what should the new country be.

The results where the following ones:

  • The flag, coat of arms, anthem, motto, currency and other symbols of the nation were chosen as they stand now. (Could be seen in the table on the top.) This voting part was the most diverse.
  • The government was chosen to be a constitutional republic. Due to the fear of another dictatorship-like government like for the past 101 years, the people choose to have a better security from the government. The mostly elderly population kept an eye on the government and the government knew that a unhappy Auronian population could cause a new civil war.
78,1% voted for the Constitutional Republic.
  • Since a republic was chosen, a president had to be chosen as well. The winning president was Antozh Gauscenam with 57,9% total votes after two rounds of voting. Surprisingly, 6,6% of the votes were invalid in this section, because people voted both for a republic and a king, which doesn't match.
