The Kingdom of Wallea, commonly known as Wallea, is a sovereign country located in midwestern Archanta. It consists of twelve states and one federal territory. Wallea shares land borders with AR005 and AR008 to its north, land and maritime borders with Demacia to its west and land and maritime borders with Castilea Archantea to its east.

Today, Wallea is a constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary democracy. The current monarch is King Damai III since the 10th of December 1985. The capital of Wallea and its largest city, San Martín, is a metropolitan and financial centre 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 northern part of the country. The Wali Kingdom has been an important nation of trade beginning from the 7th century. In the late 16th century, the country was colonized by Castellán and later by Ingerland after the Battle of Las Palmas. This left the eastern part of Wallea for Castellán. The first Ingerish territories were known as the Delta Settlements near the delta of Rio Alameda, near the present Alameda Creek; the Castellán territory started 10 km west of Nueva Delgado. The territories of present Wallea was first unified on the 12th of July 1911 as the Federation of Wallea. The 3 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.

Etymology

The name Wallea is derived from the Melayish language, with Wali (ولي)‎, meaning "custodian" and dates back to the 7th century. By this time, the northern people, living in today's Altas province, was already trading with other ancient civilizations. After the 13th century, the Wali Kingdom emerged as a result of the unification of various civilizations spread across the Altas 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

History

Main article: History of Wallea

Early History

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.

Relief of Rajhamukhawa, the relief from the early Wallean
Ideal agricultural conditions as early as the 4th Century BCE allowed villages, towns, and small kingdoms to flourish by the 1st Century CE. Most kingdoms were located on the western plateaus of Wallea where the fertile land was ideal for agricultural exploitation. Similarly, the eastern regions, mainly consisting of big vast pastures, were suitable for livestock. Small kingdoms in Wallea were well known for international trade, including trade links to the 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, Melayan 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.

Colonial Era

The first regular contact between Westerners and the people of Wallea 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 Christianity. 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.


Modern Era

Government and politics

Palace of Liberaćion, the seat of both Parliament of Wallea
Wallea is a constitutional monarchy with a democratic parliamentary government representing the constituencies. The country's constitution establishes a representative democracy as the political system. Executive power and the parliament rests with the Palace of Liberaćion, led by the Prime Minister and, to a much lesser extent, the King. King Damai III is the monarch and the head of state of Wallea and has veto powers over a specific set of executive decisions, such as the use of the national reserves and the appointment of judges, rights of encouraging, consulting and warn but otherwise, primarily assumes a ceremonial post and figure.

Legislative power is divided between federal and state legislatures. The bicameral federal parliament meets in the Palace of Liberaćion, which consists of the lower house, the House of Commons, and the upper house, the House of Lords. The 200-member House of Representatives is elected for a maximum term of five years from single-member constituencies. The position of prime minister, as the Wallea's head of government, belongs to the person most likely to command the confidence of the House of Commons; this individual is typically the leader of the political party or coalition of parties that holds the largest number of seats in that chamber. The prime minister chooses a cabinet and its members are formally appointed by the King. The monarch has to respect the prime minister's decisions of government but has rights to intervene the prime minister's decisions under the Monarch's Executive Act approved by the King.

The current Prime Minister is José Martin Casillas, who has been in office since 10 November 2014. Casillas is also the leader of the Liberal Wallean Front. There were several political parties that sit in the Wallea parliament, including the Liberal Wallean Front (liberalism) as the majority of the representative in the parliament, followed by the Wallean Democratic Union (conservatism), the Wallean Workers' Party (socialism), National Wallean Alliance and United Wallean Congress.

Geography

Munedias National Park in Salineros
Wallea is located on the Archantan Major subcontinent, north of the White Sea. Due to Wallea's location being not far from the equator, most of Wallea has a tropical climate which is hot and humid. With a height of 7,238 meters, Mount Kualeban is the highest peak in Wallea and also one of the highest peaks in the world. Lake Alameda is the biggest lake with a surface area of TBD km2. The longest and widest river in Wallea is Rio Alameda. This river is an important transportation route which connects towns and cities from upstream Tinggipura to downstream Puerto Esperanza.

Climate

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.
