Calliesanyo (/kä.li.sɑˈɲo̞/ kah-lee-sahn-yo; Byri: Kalisaanyo), known domestically as Great Byria (Byri: Kohuu Byeriya), is a country on Harda Island, a part of the continent Antarephia. Calliesanyo bordered by Beligonia, Aiau, Pasalia, Roliqia, Tyski and Lyeffenor. Calliesanyo covers 242,599 square kilometres and has a population of 60 million. It is a quasi-federal constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary legislature. Its capital and largest city, Sediimarkt, is a major economic hub with a population of over 5 million. The current monarch, who took the throne on 4 April, 2009, is Empress Ariyenna VII. Historically, Calliesanyo was divided into # provinces, which were governed as a confederation of peer-nations. These provinces were officially unified in 1814, and were later dissolved entirely in 1959.

Etymology

The Byri word Kalisaanyo, meaning "holy grassland" was first recorded as a territorial moniker in a despatch between Empress Yolama of the Byris and the Konneitak of Savohaan in which Yolama describes the Byris as "the people of the holy grasslands".

The standard Ingerish spelling "Calliesanyo" was first used by explorer David Ecclesham, who mapped the coasts of Grand Harda Island in the early 1600s. Between 1845 and 1959, the Byri Imperial Court accepted "Calliesanyo" as the official Ingerish transliteration of the country's name, however following the Great War, a push to be recognised internationally as "Kalisaanyo" was made.

Domestically, the name "Kalisaanyo" is only used as a poetic name; instead the country is referred to as "Kohuu Byeriya" (Great Byria) in most instances.

See Also: Rose Revolution

In the 1910s and 20sm Calliesanyan government and society began to shift towards a more socialist view in what is now known as the Rose Revolution. The election of 1918 saw the first Labour party government in Calliesanyo’s history, leading to new social policies; Legalisation of labour unions and mandatory minimum wage (1919), Equal pay for equal work (1921), Ten-hour work days (1921), National health insurance (1923), Reform of pre-tertiary education (1925) and Voting rights for non-ethnic Byri citizens (1928).

Labour retained control of the Secretary General’s office until the election of 1930, when the Brightstar Party took control, following popular fears of colonial revolt due to growing inequalities between metropolitan Calliesanyo and its colonies.

Government and Politics

Calliesanyo is a quasi-federal state under a constitutional monarchy. Empress Ariyenna VII is the head of state, and while not officially head of government still holds considerable power in the governance of the nation. The Secretary General is the official head of government, and is selected by popular election. The Secretary General officiates the assembly of the Imperial Parliament, and presides over the Congress of Departments. Constitutionally, the Secretary General and the monarch share power in approving legislations passed by the Imperial Parliament.

The main legislative body in Calliesanyo is the Imperial Parliament, seated in central Sediimarkt. The Imperial Parliament is a bicameral legislature, consisting of the superior ‘Nobles House’ with 140 seats, filled by imperial grant of nobility, and the inferior ‘Cantons House’ 360 seats, elected proportionally every three years or when dissolved. The Cantons House is dominated by the socially liberal National Centrist Party and the conservative Brightstar Party.

By law, all elections in Calliesanyo are open to all citizens over the age of eighteen, and must be conducted through secret ballots.

Calliesanyo has a civil law system based on the Kodeka Byeriya, a legal codex dating from around 890 CE.
