Eshein, officially Kingdom of Eshein ['ɛʃeɪn] (Hauptland Eshen: Kunigæn av Eshein ['kʊnɪ:gæn], Yll Eshen: Kunigryk av Eshæyn ['kʊnɪ:grɪk], Kalmish: Königreich von Eschäin ['ɛʃaɪn]) is a country in eastern Uletha bordered by Mergany and Viljanni to the north, by Nelavia to the south, by the Darcodian Sea to the west and by the Gulf of Volta (Ardentic Ocean) to the east. It covers an area of 13,927 square kilometres and has a population of approximately 5.3 million.
Eshein is home to two main ethnic groups: the Eshens and Ingrans. Another group is a combination between the two main ethnic groups and it is currently the 2md largest group in the country. Eshein is a federal constitutional monarchy with a presidential system of governance. It is divided into two semi-autonomous states, Keswerg and Atelfain. Keswerg is located in the southern part of the Volta island and Atelfain on the north of the Eshen peninsula, with the Strait of Owneheym between them. The capital of the kingdom is New Tyrrin and de facto it is also the largest city in the kingdom. The second largest city is Northriver which is ,de facto, the largest mancipality.

The Eshens originated from a Kalmish origin and it is unclear when they firs inhabeted the land of Eshein. For most of it's history, Eshein was an independent nation starting from the Kingdom pf Indek in the 7th century to the union with mergany and untill the Ingerish colonization (colony of New Colsex). The Kingdom, as it is today, was created in 1806 during the Eshen Revolutionary War led the first queen of Eshein, Queen Angela The Founder.

Eshein is a developed country with great economy and high life quality. It is one of the founding members of the Eastern Ulethan Organisation of Independent Allies (EUOIA) and is a member of the Assembly of Nations.

Etymology

Name amendment as part of Emilia Wallner's campaign in the 2020 elections

After the war. Queen Angela, who didn't speak fluent Eshen, chose a name that resembles to the Eshen word for Ashes, "Eshyn" [`eʃin] . She loved how symbolic it was and she wrote "Ashes are what is left after the flame digested all that stood in its way. This is our kingdom. A fresh start after a long period of suffering and ended by our flaming hearts. Like a phoenix rising from ashes will be this kingdom of prosperity."

"Eshein" was officialy chosen in 1806, during the formation of the kingdom's constitution.

In the Eshen constitution there are three formal names to the kingdom, one in every official language:

  • The Eshen name is "Eshæyn"
  • The Kalmish name is "Eschäin"
  • The Ingerish one is "Eshein"

But today the most common variation is the Ingerish one, even as the official Huptland Eshen name- which is a very controversial. Over the years there were several attempts by politicians to change the official HE name to mach the YE name, Eshæyn, but since it requires a constitutional amendment, non of them were successful. In the 2020 first elections the name amendment was part of the campaign of the winning candidate, President Emilia Wallner. Some argue the "Eshein" is the original version of Queen Angela's name for the kingdom, others claim it is only the affect of the lingering Ingerish influence on the Eshen culture caused by the colonization.

In most languages, the kingdom's name is related to the word "Ashes" (for ex. Aceniza in Castellanese).

Union with Mergany

New Colsex (1674-1806)

Main Article New Colsex

The two stats of Eshein, Atelfain and Keswerg, existed even before Eshein did. They were founded after the Ingerish colonization, during the formation of the New Colsex colony. The Ingerans occupid the land of the Mergan state of Kalmischen and made it their colony after renaming it to "New Colsex", a pronounceable name for the them. The Ingrans forced the Gearmanspachig-Mergans ro live in the south while they would live in the north. In 1742 the ingrans formed a treaty, the New Colsex Treaty, that will devide the colony into two regions, which are the states nowadays.


Flag of the colony of New Colsex

In 1673 the land was ruled by Ingerland-flag.png Ingerland after they occupied from Mergany Flag.png Mergany in "The Battle of Midge". The reason for the occupation was to have a piece of land in the east, for trade purposes, as a colony. After the occupation, the Ingrans named the land "New Colsex", after the land of "Colsex" in Ingerland and it was it's name until the ending of 1806. The Mergan population forced to live in the south so the Ingrans would live in the north. That's what created the division into two states in 1742, in The New Colsex Treaty, which was an agreement between the New-Colsexish Ingrans to the New-Colsexish Mergans about territory (creation of the two states) and collaborations between the two states. The two states still exist in the modern Eshein. The states are Keswerg and Atelfain.


Kingdom of Eshein (from 1806)

"The Crowner", The First flag of Eshein and the flag of the Angelian rebels

In the Begging of the 19th century, in 1806, Midistland national flag.png Midistland got the control over "New Colsex" from the Ingerans (turning it to an Ingerish-Midistlandese Dependency) after king Whotch, the king of "Atacoma del Norte" (which used to be a self-governing kingdom inside Midistland) married an Ingeran princesses, Princesses Angela Rewirton. She became Queen Angela of "Atacoma del Norte". At the ending of the same year, when she turned 25, She got tired of her cruel husband and from Midistland and she took over "New Colsex" with a small army she recruited of Ingerans and Midistlandeses in order to creat a new kingdom, away from her husband and away from Ingerland, where she knew her father will marry her to another man she won't like. Most of the Mergan residents, which hated the Ingrans, joined the fight against the Ingrans and the Midistlandeses. In the end of this war, The Eshen Revolutionary War, most of the Ingrans that lived in Keswerg foght for Angela's side, against Ingerland and Midistland. They were influenced by the ideas of freedom and saw Angela as their true queen (because she was the daughter of the Ingran king). Angela named her new kingdom "Eshein" after the ashes that were left after she set her husband's palace in Tengah, Midistland , on fire when she ran.

Government

Monarchy

Main Article Monarchy of Eshein


The Eshen monarchy existed since the revolutionary war. In fact, it was one of the reasons for the war, forming a brand new and free kingdom. The first Eshen monarch was Queen Angela Halensk which was the leader of the rebellion that created the kingdom and by that, gave power to the monarch to rule the country. All of the Eshen monarchs are from the Halensk dynasty and descendants of the first queen. By the constitutional law, the fist born child will inherit the throne, regardless of the sex of the child of the parents' wishes. The only exception was King Owneheym I which is the second child of Queen Angela (after his half brother Whotch). He inherited the thrown because his older brother wasn't the child of the King consort, William Halensk, what made him unsuitable to inherit the throne.

Parliament

The Folkhalter palace in the Folkhalter gardens, 3rd Island, New Tyrrin

The Folkhalter is the bicameral legislature of the federal government of Eshein consisting of two chambers: the Senate and the National Assembly.

Etymology

A combination of two Eshen words: "Folke"- people, and "Halter"- Holder, means together "People Holder"- what holds the Eshens together as one nation and not two separate ones.

The Elections

See Article eight in the Eshen constitution

Every five years, since 1810, the general elections are held in the 31st of October of the fifth year. In these elections, every Eshen citizen can vote for the president he/she thinks is the best to lead the country.

Every Eshen can vote only in his krayk of residence for his senator, and every person can vote for only one senator. Esehns who reside outside of Eshein or traveling abroad can vote in the Eshen embassy or in the EUOIA embassy in his/her location, if there is one. The national assembly is appointed by the percentage of the votes for the president in the presidential elections, which means the Eshens can't vote for the representatives directly, only for senators. The more votes the candidate gets, the more seats his party will have in the assembly.

Administrative Division

Demographics

There are 5.3 million residents in Ehsein: 2.3 million in Keswerg and 3 million in Atelfain (one third of them live in the capital, New Tyrrin)

Ethnicity

There are 3 major ethnic groups in Eshein: Eshens (74%), Mergans (12%) and Ingrans (14%).

Eshens

They are 74% of Eshein's population, 4 million people. The Eshen ethnic group is a very new ethnic group (aproximatly 300 years) and it was created out of the combination of the Ingrans and the Mergans who live in Eshein. The previous name of this group was "New Colsexens". The name changed when Eshein was founded, in 1806 to "Eshens". During the 17th century, "New Colsexen" was used as a curse word, both by the Ingrans and the Mergans, which didn't like each other and hated the ones who mixed with the other. The Eshens live all over Ehsein.

Ingrans

Because of the Eshen immigration policy, which allows Ingrans and Mergans immigrate freely to Eshein, there is a large group of Ingrans in Eshein, 14% of the entire population, 740,000 people. The Ingrans are immigrants from Ingerland-flag.png Ingerland, a country in the western Uletha, which used to rule Eshein from 1674 untill 1806. Most of the Ingrans live in Keswerg, because it is an Ingerish-speaking state.

Mergans

Much like the Ingrans, Because of the Eshen immigration policy, there is a large group of Mergans in Eshein, 12% of the entire population, 630,000 people. The Mergans are immigrants from Mergany Flag.png Mergany, a country that bordered Eshein by the north. Eshein used to a part of Mergany untill 1674. Most of the Mergans live in Atelfain, because the Mergan language is a national language in this state.

Other Ethnic Groups

The immigrants from Ingerland satteled in the north, in Keswerg, and the Mergans from the time that Eshein's land was ruled by Mergany, forced to reside in the south, in Atelfain. Immigration from both countries is still legal, although the nationality of the first settlers is Eshen today.
The aren't many other Ethnic groups in Eshien because of it's strict immigration policy.

Languages

Most of the population speaks Eshen , the national and official language of Eshein. In order to become a citizen you have to speak fluent Eshen and to pass a hard test in this language. Students and non-citizens can stay up to 4 years without speaking fluent Eshen. There are 3,481,000 million native speakers of Eshen in Eshein while almost 5,000,000 speakers overall.
Another official language is Ingerish, which stayed official language since the Ingerish control. It is mostly spoken in Keswerg. There are 700,000 native speakers of Ingerish in Eshein.
The last official language is Kalmish, which was the language of the Mergans who live in Ehsein while it still was a part of Mergany, before the Ingrans occupied it (and not Mergan like the rest of Mergany). It is mostly spoken in Atelfain. There are near 900,000 native speakers of Kalmish in Eshein.
The only national language that isn't official language is Mergan. It stayed an national language after the ingerans occupied Eshein, like Kalmish, but there wasn't enogh speakers of this language in order to make it an official language in 1806. It is mostly spoken in Atelfain. There are 220,000 native speakers of Mergan in Eshein.

Religion

58% of all the population is Christians and 40% are Atheists. The left 2% of the population is Jewish (1.8%) and Muslim(0.2%).
