South Ascot, or (Baggo Àskot) in the native Holmic language, is an island Constitutional Monarchy located in the Holmic Archipelago in Antarephia. It was colonized by Florescenta from 1765 to 1926. Other countries in the archipelago include North Ascot, Yafi, Liberon, Template:Trinidad, and San Marcos. South Ascot has two commercial airports and one airfield, various cruise and cargo ports, and many helipads. Although there is relatively high economic development in the Capitol, Yemila, and along some parts of the coast, South Ascot deals with rampant inequality both socioeconomically and ethnically. The majority of the Scotian industry belongs to tourism, ecotourism, and medium-scale agriculture, whereas 78.5% of the Annual GDP is associated with the tourism industry. South Ascot is also a small hub for call centers and acts as a tax haven for other commercial companies in the region due to loose restrictions on worker rights and benefits. South Ascot's geographical features include wetland, tropical forest, mountains, and pink-sand beaches unique to the country. These geographical features create a large ecotourism industry that draws millions of visitors in per year. Tourism-based towns lie around the North half of the country and Southeast. The Central parts of South Ascot are mainly hilly small-scale farms, whereas the South-Central, South, and Southwest areas are mountainous. There are three main peaks situated in the very South-Central part of South Ascot that slope down to the coasts. These include name Hill, name Volcano, and name Mountain. name Volcano is a relatively inactive volcano and the southernmost peak out of the three. It has lied mainly dormant since 1566 with one eruption occurring in 1972. This is widely known as the Red Day (insert Holmic name) in which an estimated 500-1,600 people were killed with a few thousand injured. Tsunamis have been recorded in South Ascot as well. Most of the south half of South Ascot are designated protected lands or natural wildlife reserves.
History and politics
South Ascot has been occupied by indigenous groups for thousands of years with records of old civilizations painted in cave walls near Uricỳa. Since foreign speleologists first discovered the ancient caves underneath the rolling grass hills in the Southeast of the country, the region of Uricỳa has been declared a world heritage site. In Uricỳa city lies a former colony old town created by Florescentian colonizers. This town dates back to 1748 and was occupied until independence in 1928 as a military and residential outpost. To this day, the area remains a tourist spot famed all around the world.
Yemila and the 1966 Military Coup
Yemila is the capitol of South Ascot and the largest city with an estimated 18,500 residents living within its borders. Yemila's linearly-sprawling government district and New Town have been since rebuilt since a military coup nearly demolished the entire area in 1966. In the 1960's, South Ascot had gained an infamous name around the world as an island paradise with unique Pink Beaches and an enjoyable climate. The influx of toruist money built the country's economy up and created jobs and developed housing. In 1965, up to an estimated population of nearly 121,000 during the winters, mainly because South Ascot remained warm while many other areas of the world remained cold. Yet, in January 1966, at the height of the tourism boom, mafia members in Yemila stationed a sizeable military coup to take down the corrupt monarchy handling South Ascot at the time. Unbeknownst to tourists at the time, Ggula Rennot, otherwise known as Big Harry, coined many profits gained by the tourism industry and held them rather than giving back to Scotians and taxes. Because of this, the coup moved into the government district, destroyed almost 80% of government buildings, and overthrew Big Harry over the course of three days. In total, 145 people were killed and another estimated 450 were injured in the streets and buildings of Yemila. The news made world headlines and thousands of tourists flocked back to home countries. The tourism industry fell and would not rise once again until 1992, when the equally corrupt military coup was overthrown by the corrupt monarchy's only living daughter, Princess Dutu. Since then, she and Prince Ggerin have been coined as South Ascot's monarchy. To this day, the monarchy as still rumored to be partially corrupt.
