Eshein, officially Kingdom of Eshein ['ɛʃeɪn] (Eshen: Kunigæn av Eshein ['kʊnɪ:gæn] or Kunigryk av Eshein ['kʊnɪ:grɪk], Gaerman: Königreich von Eschäjn) 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 Mergans, which constitutes about 56 percent of the population, and the Ingrans, which comprises about 40 percent of the population. Two of the additional 4 percent are Medestlandese, while the rest are from other ethnic groups.
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 but de jure it is not one city, what makes Northriver the largest city.
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 Gearmanspachig 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. 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.

The name drives from the Eshen word for Ashes, "Esh" [`eʃ]. The name was chosen because it symbolizes the rebelion and the war that created the kingdom. It was chosen in 1806, during the formation of the kingdom's constitution, by the leader of the rebelion, queen Angela.
For that queen the name also represented the ashes that covered Tengah's sky while her husband's palace was on fire (that she started).
In the beginning, there were three formal names to the kingdom: one in every official language. The Eshen name was "Eshein" The Gaerman name was "Aschen" And the Ingerish one was "Ashain" But not long after the Eshen version was the most common one, what made the Ingrish and Gaerman names to adapt the eshen pronounciation. The Ingerish became identical due to similarity between writing systems and the Gaerman name became "Eschäjn" so it will sound the same as the other two.
In most languages, the kingdom's name is related to the word "Ashes" (for ex. Aceniza in Castellanese).

The State of Gaermansprachig (1421-1674)
Eshein's land was ruled by Mergany and was a part of it, Separation of Mergany in 1434, as the state of Gaermansprachig, until it was occupied by Ingerland in "The Battle of Midge" in 1674. It was one of Mergany's states and it was called "Gaermansprachig", which means "Gaerman-Speaking" in Gaerman. The reason for this name was this state being the only Gaerman-speaking state in Mergany, and not Mergan-speaking like the rest of Mergany's states.
New Colsex (1674-1806)
- Main Article New Colsex
In 1673 the land was ruled by Ingerland after they occupied from 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)
In the Begging of the 19th century, in 1806, 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.

- 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.
The Folkhergen is the bicameral legislature of the federal government of Eshein consisting of two chambers: the Senate and the National Assembly.
A combination of two Eshen words: "Folke"- people, and "Hergen"- Plural for Hold, means together "People Hold"- what holds the Eshens together as one nation and not two separate ones.
Upper House- Senate of Eshein
Senatt av Eshein (Eshen) The Eshen senate is composed of senators who represent each of the several Eshen provinces, with each province has two senators as representatives, regardless of it's population. all the senators serve for 5 years and they are being chosen in the general elections.

Powers of the National Assembly
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 for the second round (between the 2 leading candidates). The first presidential round is held every five years in the 1st of October of the fifth year. At the same day of the second round of the presidential elections, the Eshens also vote for their favorite regional senator candidate. In each province, the 5 candidate who got most of the votes, win a place in the senate. Every Eshen can vote only in his province 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 second round of the presidential elections, which means the Eshens can't vote for the representatives directly. The more votes the candidate gets in the second round, the more seats his party will have in the assembly.

There are 3 major ethnic groups in Eshein: Eshens (74%), Mergans (12%) and Ingrans (14%).
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.
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, 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.
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, 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.
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 Gaerman, 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 Gaerman in Eshein.
The only national language that isn't official language is Mergan. It stayed an national language after the ingerans occupied Eshein, like Gaerman, 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.
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%).
