The Confederated Kingdom of Wallea and Majesia, commonly known as Wallea, is a sovereign country located in midwestern Archanta. It consists of twenty states and two federal territory. Wallea shares land and maritime borders with Demacia and Ascot to its west and land and maritime borders with Castilea Archantea to its east.
Today, Wallea is a dual constitutional monarchy with two separate democratic parliamentary government representing their own respective constituencies. Sultanate of Majesia has been a subjected territory of Kingdom of Wallea since the late 18th century. The current monarch is King Damai IV since the 10th of June 2019. The capital of Wallea and its largest city, San Martín, is a metropolitan and financial center with an urban area population of 9.2 million, one of the largest in Archanta. Located in a tropical climate, Wallea is one of the megadiverse countries on the planet, with extensive numbers of endemic species. The country has abundant natural resources such as oil, natural gas, tin, copper and gold. Wallean's agricultural sector mainly produces rice, palm oil, tea, coffee, cacao, wheat, medicinal herbs, tobacco, spices and rubber.
Wallea has its origins from the Wali Kingdom, which ruled at what is now the province of Walinegara and Balawan. The Wali Kingdom has been an important kingdom of trade from the beginning of the 7th century, while Majesian Empire in the north has been an important empire that ruled further north. In the late 16th century, the southern part of today's Wallea, was colonized by Castellán and later by Ingerland after 150 years of ruling. This left the eastern part of Wallea partly claimed by Castilea Archantea. The first Castellán Walea territory started from 10 km west of Nueva Delgado way to the border of Carnero and Walinegara after the Cermeño Expedition, while the Ingerish territories were known as the Delta Settlements near the delta of Rio Alameda, near the present Puerto Alameda started in around late 1700s. The Invasion of Majapura in 1895 made the Sultanate of Majesia a tributary kingdom and territory under Wali Kingdom. The territories of present Wallea was first unified on the 12th of July 1911 as the Federated Kingdom of Wallea. The states located in eastern Wallea did not agree on the Wallean constitution and ideology, separating itself from the Kingdom of Wallea and in 1957, formed the Democratic People's Republic of Salineros (DPRS) or more commonly known as East Wallea. In December 1988, with accumulating pressure from the Kingdom of Wallea and international forums, East Wallea was disbanded and all of its territories were annexed by the Kingdom of Wallea.
Since its reunification, Wallea has had one of the best economic records in Archanta, with its GDP growing at an average 3.5% per annum for almost thirty years. The economy has traditionally been fueled by its natural resources but is expanding in the sectors of science, tourism, commerce, and medical tourism. Today, Wallea has a newly industrialized market economy.

EtymologyMajanese language, with Wali (ꦮꦭꦶ), meaning "custodian" and dates back to the 7th century. By this time, the northern people, living in today's Walinegara and Padanarum province, was already trading with other ancient civilizations and the Great Majesian Empire. After the Majesian Empire occupation in around 13th century, the Wali Kingdom emerged as a result of the unification of various civilizations spread across the Alethean Mountains. In the 16th century, the western colonies, including Castellán and Ingerland, acknowledged the northern territory as "Wallea" though at the time there were discussions between other colonies regarding the name of the kingdom. Later, the area was separated into three provinces and "Wallea" was only used to refer to the native people from the northern areas. After independence was given to the Wali Kingdom, the First King, Damai I, chose the Ingerish name Wallea instead of Wali due to the "easier pronunciation" and wide acceptance by the Walleans
Fossils and remains of tools that are found on the banks of Rio Alameda show that Wallea was inhabited by early humans between 50,000-30,000 years ago. It is unknown the exact time when early humans reached and settled in the region of Wallea. They predominantly lived on the riverbanks of Rio and the coasts of the White Sea which today is a constituent area of Del Rio.Commonian Kingdom. By the 5th Century CE, Wallea was also a part of a trade route between eastern and western Archanta, long before the western colonization took place in Archanta.
In the 7th Century CE, the unification of 5 preceding kingdoms created a powerful Wali Kingdom, with the kingdom's capital being Kabuntalan. The first reign of the dynasty was led by the dynasty of Matabaku and brings the Kingdom into an economic and cultural golden age that lasted for approximately 300 years. By the early 12th century, records showed that 70% of the population had perished because of either famine, plague, or great floods that ruined the regions around the White Sea. With the majority of the population, including the Royal Family of Wallea dead, the surviving cousin of the king, Janu Shakti relocated the kingdom to the Greater Mountains of Altas. For the following several centuries, the Wali Kingdom became a scattered community of small villages located throughout the Atlas mountains. By the 14th Century, Majesian traders began trading coffee, tea, and spices from Orang Gunung which the term then became attached with the early Wallean.
The earliest evidence of Iman being practiced in Wallea was in the mid 13th century after villages in the northeast started to build Iman mosques and cemeteries. However, the local religion of Wali Kingdom continued to be the preponderance until the 17th century.
The first regular contact between Westerners and the people of Wali began in 1541 when Castelán and Castilea Archantea explorer led by Andrés Cermeño de Puertavieja set sail on an expedition called Cermeño Expedition to upstream Rio Alameda where they met the King Pandhu Shakti I in the city of Tinggipura. Diego and made a deal to trade exotic spices that were only native to the Northern Territory of the Wali Kingdom. Acknowledging the benefits of the trade and of Castellán's technology, King Pandhu agreed to sign a contract to trade freely with the Castellán colony. From then onward, merchant ships became a common sight on the waters of Río Alameda. In 1550, another agreement was signed allowing Castellan to get full control over southern Wallea, while 30% of the taxes must go to the Wali court. The population, resenting the Castellan presence, decided to move up north. In 1534, the king Shatki I died, and the Castellans installed a puppet king Shatki II, who later in his so-called reforms removed the Wali Council with the Administración de Waléa-Castellan (AWC) for better cooperation with Castellan. Shatki II, however, was later deposed off by the Castellans in 1552 when he tried to rebel, effectively ending the Wali line of succession and establishing full Castellan control over Wallea, when the Castellans abolished the Wali Court. In the 1570s Wallea was reorganized for mining minerals in the country. Due to limited labor, the Castellan brought in many people from its colonies, especially from nearby Ardisphere. The colony flourished as an important provider of mineral resources and also being part of a land trade route going to northern Archanta. Unlike other Castellan colonies, however, the locals were not forcefully converted to Christic. In 1715, Ingerish ships arrived in Wallea in hopes of establishing a port in Puerto Alameda. However, they were forced to retreat as Castellan ships then launched an attack on the ships. In return, the Ingerish launched an attack onto several Castellan ports with a more powerful navy and even launched several attacks on land. Eventually, the Castellans surrendered after massive loses, and thus in the Las Palmas agreement, Wallea was then handed over to the Ingerish on 8 October 1751. To remove all Castellan influence in the area, the Ingerish introduced Ingerish translations for towns such as for San Martin (Saint Martin). Ingerish then replaced Castellanese is the lingua franca, which was readily accepted. While mining plays a key part in the colony’s economy, the Ingerish colonial administrators embarked on a long list of developments to promote rapid economic expansion, such as expanding the Castellan’s abandoned ports. Wallea was still one of the Ingerish colonies were remained after the Ingerish civil war. In the middle of the 19th century, when the new Ingerish governor Luthern Rivers tried to implement a policy of Westernization to enforce Ulethan culture in Wallea. This includes the ban on traditional local games like 'capteh' and 'five stones', and the Ingerish language was made to be the only medium taught in all schools. Many jobs were then required good Ingerish language skills, which negatively impacted many Walleans. A rise of nationalism took place in the nation as people wanted to keep their own culture and heritage, and began the question Ingerish rule. There were calls by locals to the Ingerish to grant self-governance, and after much discussion and deliberation in the 1850s, the colonial government re-shuffled and set up new positions in the legislative assembly for elected locals.
Government and politicsMajesia and Wallea have a common foreign, military, and joint financial policy, the two states are independent of their own affairs. The two states have a representative democracy as the political system. Executive power and the parliament rests with the respective houses (i.e. Wallea's Palace of Liberaćion and Majesia's. Majlis Wakil al-Majesi), led by their respective Prime Ministers and, to a much lesser extent, their respective Kings. King Damai IV, who became king recently this year, is the Wallean monarch and the head of state of Wallea, while his Majesian counterpart is Sultan Mustafa II. Both have veto powers over a specific set of executive decisions of their own states, such as the use of the state reserves and the appointment of judges, rights of encouraging, consulting and warning but otherwise, primarily assumes a ceremonial post and figure. Monarch's Executive Act shared by both Majesia and Wallea.
In the Wallean Parliament, a specific set of seats were 'reserved' for the Representatives of the East Wallean states. These seats were never dissolved when a national election is called; rather it was dissolved only when East Wallea launches its own elections. This was part of the 1987 unification pact that ensured East Wallean representation in the Wallean government but retains its own autonomy in its own matters, except for foreign relations and defence which are under Wallean control. Under the Independence Pact, the kingdoms of Majesia and Wallea are to rule over their own states and provinces. Wallea has twelve provinces with three of them having 'Special Administrative Status' under the 'East Wallean administration'. The administration exercises autonomy over the state's affairs, including education, healthcare, law, law enforcement, economy, and immigration policies. Only foreign relations and external defense matters are under Wallean control. The rest of the states have their own governments which have a certain autonomy but often the Federal government exercises its rights to intervene in the state affairs.
The current Prime Minister is Purnama Segan, who has been in office since 9 September 2019. Purnama wins the majority vote from the 19 April's Prime Minister Election. His party, Liberal Wallean Front were the majority of representative that sits in the parliament. There were several political parties that sit in the Wallean parliament, including the Liberal Wallean Front, followed by Wallean Democratic Union, Wallean Workers' Party, National Wallean Alliance, and the Majesian Imanic Front.

Located near the equator, Wallea has 2 seasons, the wet and dry seasons; and there is no extreme season in Wallea. The majority of Wallea experiences the wet and dry seasons from December to April and May to November respectively. The equatorial storms developing on the warm waters in the north seldom affects Wallea. This is due to the Atlas mountain ranges that shields it, making Wallea’s climate pleasant yet diverse, dominated by humid tropical savannahs and rainforests. The semi-arid climate could be found in the southern part of Wallea which is often dry and rarely wet. The temperatures there could reach up to 40°C on the dry season with an average of 30°C throughout the year. The northern part of Wallea is mountainous with heights reaching above 7,000 meters above sea level. The climate that covers these areas are mainly subtropical humid with conifer forests on the sloped and permanent snow on the peaks. During the winter, these mountainous regions could experience heavy snow on the wet season making rivers like Rio Alameda flood.
Wallea is an emerging economy and considered a newly industrialized country. Compared to the neighboring countries, Wallea's economy is not the biggest one but, Wallea is one of the countries which had the most significant economic growth within ten years in the North Archanta region. The economy of Wallea relies heavily on an export, which around 62% of the total GDP income of the country's economy.
Recent history of Wallean economyAfter being in a relatively stable economy under the regime of Hartino Cristobal for 38 years, in the last years of his administration, the economy fell, and the inflation rate as well, about 27% in just two years from 1973-1975. Laminta Sendanu, the interim Prime Minister after Cristobal, couldn't fix the economy into a more stable one because of pressure and conflicts happening in Wallea.
The fall of the economy and inflation didn't slow down until 1982 when Prime Minister Cevantes created the economic equalization policy, economical-political agreement with the Socialists as well as independent East Wallea. Prime Minister Cevantes also unified East Wallea into the Kingdom of Wallea again. The economy started to boom after these events. By 1996, the economic growth of Wallea already expanded by 4,5 to 6,5% each year, mainly thanks to strong exports and free trade agreements and policies within the newly joined and formed CARECU (Central Archantan Economic Union).
The 1999 Economic Recession caused by overconfidence in some industrial sectors in Wallea, like the mining, oil, and gas sectors. Prime Minister Abel Secada, who is famous for making more economic policies that are left-leaning, stepped down from her position as Prime Minister. The next ruling Prime Minister, Mali Sharub-Banzak, created a policy to boost the economy with infrastructure projects around the country to facilitate more foreign investment and to push corrupt politicians and elites from their status. Within the next few years, the abolition of more union and environmental policies miraculously expanded the economy way further.
In 2009, Prime Minister José Martin Casillas was elected. He created prevalent policies that are pandering into a more social and equality economic system for poor people. The digitalization and electronic economy began to rise in the Wallea so that, in 2018, the digital e-commerce sector contributed more than 35% to the total GDP. His regime also saw economic growth of about 4.8% annually and the growth of the middle class and the decline of poverty from 25% in 2009 to 10.4% in 2019.
Income, wealth and povertyOn average, a Wallean has a median wealth of $1,200 in 2017, increasing about $500 since 2010. The disparity between Walleans is also an essential topic in the government, which is trying to get rid of the current wealth disparity. In 2015, it was reported that Wallea was one of the most unequal countries in Archanta, falling second to Commonwealth of Central Archanta. The top 20% of "rich" people are holding 75% of the country's assets, and the top 1% are holding about 55% of the economy. Wallea's 50 wealthiest families had a total net worth of 27% of the entire country's GDP
In 2018, 13% of Walleans lived in poverty, or 20% of the total population, if the near-poor people are included. In 2008, a census stated that more than 25% of Walleans lived if poverty and near-poor economic levels. The proportion of the poverty population is smaller in every province and region in South Wallea, and higher in the central plains and mountain regions of Walinegara, Balawan, and Valdevimbre.
Government social programs to eradicate poverty were around 29% of total government spending in 2016, excluding the infrastructure and economic boost subsidies from the central government, especially the three poorest provinces in the country. In 2019, there were 10 million people who applied for social welfare, and almost 19,000 people left homeless around the country and mostly in the capital city of San Martín for the reason of expensive rent and livable conditions in the capital.
Export and manufacturing
The economy of Wallea is export-dependent, with exports accounting for two-thirds of its gross domestic product (GDP). Wallea exports over $100 billion worth of goods and services annually. Major exports include palm oil, coal, crude oil, minerals, automobiles, electrical appliances, rice, textiles, fishery products, rubber, and chemical products.
The export dependency is the direct result of the 1999 Economic Recession, after which the government liberalized the economy by inviting foreign companies and governments to invest more in Wallea. Six out of the ten top companies operating in Wallea are mainly international or foreign companies. Four of them are from Federal States of Archanta, one is from the Commonwealth of Central Archanta and one is from Castilea Archantea.
The country also is in the process from the natural sectors of mining, and forestry to more industrial manufacturing after some of the disliked policies of liberalization which created more problem in environmental issues, like the Pascagoula Forest Fire in 2011 which killed for more than 89 people which was caused by mining and plantation businesses.
45% of the Wallean labor force is employed in the agricultural sector, which decreased from around 70% in the 1980s. Rice and palm oil are the most important crop in the country, as they the leading world exporter of rice and palm oil. Wallea also significantly produces and exports some agricultural products like rubber, coconut, wheat, winery, tropical fruits, and vegetables.
The agriculture sector has been experiencing transitional methods to a more industrialized industry as the industry has declined in contributing to the total GDP as the result of the manufacturing industry.
Oil and mining
In the late 1960s, Wallea was one of the biggest producers of oil in North Archanta, as 1.5 million barrels (240,000 m3) produced per day. The 2000s saw the decline of the oil and gas sector, including refineries due primarily to aging oil fields, harsh exploitation, and a lack of investment in oil production equipment. This decline in production has been accompanied by a substantial increase in domestic consumption, about 5.4% per year, leading to an estimated US$1.2 billion cost for importing oil in 2005. It has also said that this decline is also a result of foreign companies that have been exploiting crude oil production in Wallea in exchange for military equipment and financial aid from a more developed nation. The state owns all petroleum and mineral rights. Foreign firms participate through production-sharing and work contracts. Oil and gas contractors are required to finance all exploration, production, and development costs in their contract areas. They are entitled to recover operating, exploration, and development costs out of the oil and gas produced.
In Wallea's central mountains, specifically the province of Walinegara hosts one of the biggest open mine pits in the world, called Tembagapura Mine Pit. It produces bauxite, copper, and gold and is located at the height of 4500 meters (14763 feet) from sea level. Although Wallea is the world one of the biggest producer of tin, mineral production is traditionally centered on bauxite, silver, and tin, it is expanding its copper, nickel, gold, and coal output for export markets.
Main article: Tourism in Wallea The tourism sector in Wallea has contributed around 15%-20% to the economy every year as the southern coast of Wallea offers some of the world's most beautiful beaches. During 2016, about 10 million foreign tourists visited Wallea, which was 15.5% higher than that of the prior year. Demacia, Castilea Archantea, the Commonwealth of Central Archanta, the Federal States of Archanta, and Ardencia are the top five sources of visitors to Wallea. The government has also secured commitments from potential investors, totalling to $70 million in the areas of building accommodation, marina, and ecotourism facilities in some of the most visited places.
Wallea's attractions include diving, sandy beaches, nightlife, hiking, colonial architecture, archaeological sites, museums, tribes (traditional village), flora, birdlife, temples, and multiple world heritage sites. A more fancy holiday usually is centered on the southern coast, as opposed to more backpacking, hiking, and more spiritual tourism centered in the center of the country. The most visited sites in Wallea are Swarnadipa Temple, San Martín Central Park, Kingston Nightlife District, the city of San Augustine, Corsa Beach, the city of Tinggipura and its beautiful Kabuntalan Palace, Kualeban Mountain Park for extreme hiking and sports.
