Tanay, officially the Republic of Tanay (Tanayo: Rapublika ang Tanay), is an island country 83 kilometers away from the mainland in the western part of Archanta. Situated in the Asperic Ocean, it consists of 3 islands. It has a total area of 1841.81 km², and an estimated total population of 2,789,00. The capital- and most populous city of Tanay is Bogoy.
Tanay's location close to the equator makes it susceptible to typhoons.
In prehistoric times, the earliest inhabitants of Tanay were the Mogoyang, before Asanic peoples arrived and settled in successive waves. An island of fractured, warring Mogoyang tribes caused the divided Asanic peoples to unite around 1492, and drove the Mogoyang to extinction. For the next 349 years, the island thrived under a grand chief. In 1841, a chief from the southwest city of Bogoy named Maalato, stood up against the bad rule of the last grand chief and managed to depose him. Maalato laid the foundation of the republic of Tanay, and reformed many things to better the life of the average Tanayan. It was not until 9 May 1923 that the republic of Tanay was officially founded by President Tono Maksot.
Tanay is a developing country with an emerging economy. Due to internal governmental struggles, Tanay is currently not part of any international organization.
The name 'Tanay' comes from the old Tanayo language and was the name that the Asanic peoples gave to the island.
Historians and etymologists argue about the true meaning of the name 'Tanay', as it bears close resemblance to the word 'Tanahi', old Tanayo for 'Blessed Hills'.
Grand Chiefdom (1492-1841)
The official currency of Tanay is the Tanayo Tan (Ŧ)(TAN). Since 1992, cents have been abolished as the Tan started to inflate and became worth less on the international exchange. The coins and banknotes currently in circulation are; 1 Tan coin, 5 Tan coin, 10 Tan coin, 20 Tan banknote, 100 Tan banknote, 200 Tan banknote, 500 Tan banknote, 1000 Tan banknote.
