The geography of Leresso is quite diverse, with 5 general geographic zones.  The first zone is the High Kusanné, almost exclusively in Northad and Avilan.  In the High Kusanné, the tallest mountain in Antarephia can be found -- Mount Levantu, at a height of 5101 meters.  This zone is generally cold, with harsh winters.  The second zone is the High Kadmar Plains.  This zone stretches from Central and Northern Kadantra to Central and Northern West Kadmar.  This zone generally has more stable temperatures, as the Lower Kusanné Range shields this region from the offshore winds.  Because of this meteorological phenomenon, this is where the majority of Leressan crops are grown.  The third zone is the Lower Kusanné.  Ranging from Northeastern Kadantra to Northwestern West Kadmar, the Lower Kusanné are large, fertile hills that define the coastline of West Kadmar and Palomar.  There is not much to be said about this zone, other than its sheer natural beauty.  The fourth zone is the Central Plains.  Lake Gavares and the city of Àdena can be found in this region.  As the name suggests, this region is mostly flat, with the Kusanné Range serving as a backdrop on either end.  The fifth and final zone is the Coastal Plains.  This zone stretches from Central Palomar to the Choyazem Hills in Nuvema.  This zone experiences cooler temperatures due to the offshore winds coming from the

Due to its small size, Leresso does not experience a vast array of climates as one might expect from the topography.  Generally, the Leressan climate is classified as Csa, with regional variants.  The coast typically has the most stable climate, whereas further inland the temperatures begin to vary more, with hotter summers and colder winters, as moisture from the ocean is too far away to regulate the inland climate.
 
The Leressan Climate is mediterranean, with warm, sunny summers and cool, mild winters.  The average temperature throughout the year stays generally the same, which is in the mid- to high-60s (F).

Leresso's geographic position is unique, in that several nations compete for dominance of their section of Antarephia.

Leresso is situated in western Antarephia, and is slowly becoming the cultural, economic, and political powerhouse of the region.
  
 
To the north, Leresso is bordered by [[Stature]].  
 
To the north, Leresso is bordered by [[Stature]].  
Line 893: Line 114:
  
  
To the east, Leresso is bordered by the Kingdom of Elmali and the West River Territory.  Historically, the West River Territory has been home to both Turquese and Everian settlements alike, and this cultural collision has caused some tension between Leresso and Elmali.  Eventually, the conflict climaxed at a full-scale Elmali invasion of the West River Territory from 1946 to 1948, creating a Turquese majority.  After the Treaty of Chakeihya was signed in 1948, the two nations resolved that Elmali would have primary jurisdiction over the territory, thus giving Elmali claim over the territory, and Leresso would have secondary jurisdiction.

===Law and judicial system===
 +
In Leresso, every county has its own Regional court.  Similar to the Federal States, the Leressan judicial system includes an appeals system, where a plaintiff may appeal a Regional Court's decision to a Provincial Court.  If the Provincial Court's decision is unsatisfactory, the plaintiff may appeal to the National High Court, which is the head judicial entity in the country.
  
 
===Foreign relations===
 
===Foreign relations===
Leresso's alliance system is strong.  Many of the basic principles in Kadmaric government philosophy hint at "strong relationships grounded in peace, unity, and cooperation" as the most effective way to create a better Leresso and a better world.  Leresso has strong ties to continental powers like [[Paxtar]], [[Guai]], and [[Ullanyé]], and has established effective diplomatic missions in [[Al-Kaza]] and the [[Federal States of Archanta|Federal States]].
+
As a small regional power in Antarephia, Leresso maintains strategic economic, political, and military alliances with its neighbors, as well as the other continental powers of Antarephia, such as [[Guai]], [[Paxtar]], and [[Ullanyé]].  Leresso also has a notable presence in northern Tarephia, given its embassy in [[Al-Kaza]].  Perhaps the country's most vital trade partner is the [[Federal States of Archanta|Federal States]], being Leresso's biggest importer and contributing a sizeable amount to the Leressan economy.

The Everian Writing System is one of the most unique in the world, and many scholars commonly contrast it with the ultra complex writing systems of the southern Antarephian archipelagos.
+
Everian uses the Kadmaric Alphabet, a writing system with no known connections to any other writing system in the world.  Like their southern Antarephian neighbors, Leressans take pride in their unique language and consider it to be integral to the national identity.  It is also one of the few non-Romnantian writing systems in the world with a unique punctuation system.
  
 
===Education===
 
===Education===
 +
The education system is regulated by the government.  Almost all schools in Leresso are public, save for a few international schools in Aludres.  Birth year determines when a child is to start their education.  The year in which a child turns six years old is the year they enter the Leressan education system as a Year 1 student (Ղասօծ 1).  Students remain in primary school through Year 7, the year a student turns 12.  The year in which a student turns 18 is the last year of secondary education, known as Year 13 (Ղասօծ 13). 
 +
In Leresso, the school year starts in late February and ends in late November, lining up with the austral summer.  All primary and secondary schools start on the same day.
 +
====Ikavtàimạsi====
 +
During Year 13, students prepare to take the University Entrance Exam, known in Everian as ''Ikavtàimạsi (Ւղարպացւմօսւ)''.  The exam only applies to national universities, and is a mandatory test all Leressan citizens must take in order to complete their secondary education.  International universities with campuses in Leresso are permitted by the government to set their own admissions process, but this must be done in conjunction with exam preparation.  In recent years, Leressan students have seen international universities and their admissions processes as an easier way to continue their education, resulting in government pressure causing international universities to drastically decrease the incoming class size and providing even more government resources to national universities.  The test takes place during the first week of October, over the course of two days.  The first day constitutes a Mathematics and Ingerish exam, and the second day constitutes a Science and Everian exam.  Each exam is 80 minutes long.  There are strict noise ordinances in effect nationwide on testing days, with severe consequences for anyone in violation of these noise ordinances.

Leresso (Everian: Ղամալուն Ղադմառւըօ; Romanization: Kamalun Kadmariqạ), officially the Kadmaric Republic, is a country located on the northwestern coast of Antarephia. Leresso is bordered to the north by Stature, by AN141c to the East, and by the Hesperic Ocean to the south and west. Its capital is Aludres, which is also the largest city. It is a small country of 48,020 km² (18,541 sq mi) and has a population of just over 11.5 million.

Etymology

The name "Kadmaric Republic" comes from the name of the country's most important river, the Kadmar, which in turn is a translation from Everian into Formal Ingerish. The name of the country in Everian is Kamalun Kadmarighë (Ղամալուն Ղադմառւվօ), which in practical Ingerish translates to "Kadmar's dominion" The true origins of the name "Leresso" remain a mystery.

The Rainbow Tuesday Celebration in Montecari, Nuvema, on August 12th, 2017.

During this century, an event known as the EGP, or Economic Growth Plan, started, specifically on April 8th, 1906, when a reformation of the Leressan economy happened. In 1909, a law was passed that started an initiative to industrialize Leresso and West Kadmar. What is now known as the "Leressan Cultural Revolution of the 1950s" is believed to have started on August 12th, 1951, also known as "Rainbow Tuesday". On this day, an Ingerish monument was painted in a rainbow, and 112,000 people gathered for the spectacle. This was honored nationwide on August 12th of every succeeding year, with the most prominent celebration being in 2017.

The Leadership of Sallan Madesta

for more on Sallan Madesta, see Sallan Madesta, Sallanism or The Seven Doctrines

Sallan Madesta became known in 1911 for spreading his ideas throughout the middle of Leresso. His ideals were most popular in the Western Lake Gavares region and around Beaudry. He spread ideas which he liked to call Sallanism throughout Central Leresso. Madesta felt that his ideals could completely change the nation for the better.

Geography

The geography of Leresso is unusually diverse given its small size, with 5 general geographic zones. The first zone is the High Kusanné, almost exclusively in Northad and Avilan. In the High Kusanné, the tallest mountain in Antarephia can be found -- Mount Levantu, at a height of 5101 meters. This zone is generally cold, with harsh winters. The second zone is the High Kadmar Plains. This zone stretches from Central and Northern Kadantra to Central and Northern West Kadmar. This zone generally has more stable temperatures, as the Lower Kusanné Range shields this region from the offshore winds. Because of this meteorological phenomenon, this is where the majority of Leressan crops are grown. The third zone is the Lower Kusanné. Ranging from Northeastern Kadantra to Northwestern West Kadmar, the Lower Kusanné are large, fertile hills that define the coastline of West Kadmar and Palomar. There is not much to be said about this zone, other than its sheer natural beauty. The fourth zone is the Central Plains. Lake Gavares and the city of Àdena can be found in this region. As the name suggests, this region is mostly flat, with the Kusanné Range serving as a backdrop on either end. The fifth and final zone is the Coastal Plains. This zone stretches from Central Palomar to the Choyazem Hills in Nuvema. This zone experiences cooler temperatures due to the offshore winds coming from the

Climate

Due to its small size, Leresso does not experience a vast array of climates as one might expect from the topography. Generally, the Leressan climate is classified as Csa, with regional variants. The coast typically has the most stable climate, whereas further inland the temperatures begin to vary more, with hotter summers and colder winters, as moisture from the ocean is too far away to regulate the inland climate. The Leressan Climate is mediterranean, with warm, sunny summers and cool, mild winters. The average temperature throughout the year stays generally the same, which is in the mid- to high-60s (F).


Administrative Divisions

Leresso is divided into 7 provinces, with one being semi-autonomous.


Borders

Leresso is situated in western Antarephia, and is slowly becoming the cultural, economic, and political powerhouse of the region.

To the north, Leresso is bordered by Stature.

Currently, the Leressan Progressive Party, known colloquially as LPP, holds a plurality of seats in the Parliament, and as such, the current Prime Minister, Letişi Mụzea, is a member of this party. The best-known coalitions in the parliament are the Moderate Coalition, consisting of the LPP, Green Party, Gever Party, and the International Party; and the Everian Coalition, consisting of the LNP, Hyamadài Party, and the Sallanist Party.

If the Provincial Court's decision is unsatisfactory, the plaintiff may appeal to the National High Court, which is the head judicial entity in the country.

Leresso uses the rivan (Ʀ) as official currency.

The rivan is produced by the Leressan National Mint located in Aludres and circulates in all the Leressan provinces, including West Kadmar. The leressan currency comprises coins of 1 rivan and 10 and 50 cent denominations and notes of 1, 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 dollar denominations.

  • the Ʀ50 bill features the Leressan Parliament in Aludres.
  • the Ʀ100 bill features the national flower of Leresso, the avalanche lily.

The exchange rate is Int$0.837 per Ʀ1.

Tourism

Infrastructure

Energy

Traffic keeps to the right side of the road.

Trains

Demographics

Languages

The official languages of Leresso are Ingerish and Everian (Ւրւռյանօկ).

All signs around the country are written in both Ingerish and Everian. All Pre-Primary, Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary education facilities are required by national law to teach both Ingerish and Everian Linguistics courses. Some courses, such as Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, and World Economics, are taught solely in Ingerish due to the fact that Ingerish dominates the world stage in those fields.


See also: Everian

Everian uses the Kadmaric Alphabet, a writing system with no known connections to any other writing system in the world. Like their southern Antarephian neighbors, Leressans take pride in their unique language and consider it to be integral to the national identity. It is also one of the few non-Romnantian writing systems in the world with a unique punctuation system.

Education

The education system is regulated by the government. Almost all schools in Leresso are public, save for a few international schools in Aludres. Birth year determines when a child is to start their education. The year in which a child turns six years old is the year they enter the Leressan education system as a Year 1 student (Ղասօծ 1). Students remain in primary school through Year 7, the year a student turns 12. The year in which a student turns 18 is the last year of secondary education, known as Year 13 (Ղասօծ 13). In Leresso, the school year starts in late February and ends in late November, lining up with the austral summer. All primary and secondary schools start on the same day.

Ikavtàimạsi

During Year 13, students prepare to take the University Entrance Exam, known in Everian as Ikavtàimạsi (Ւղարպացւմօսւ). The exam only applies to national universities, and is a mandatory test all Leressan citizens must take in order to complete their secondary education. International universities with campuses in Leresso are permitted by the government to set their own admissions process, but this must be done in conjunction with exam preparation. In recent years, Leressan students have seen international universities and their admissions processes as an easier way to continue their education, resulting in government pressure causing international universities to drastically decrease the incoming class size and providing even more government resources to national universities. The test takes place during the first week of October, over the course of two days. The first day constitutes a Mathematics and Ingerish exam, and the second day constitutes a Science and Everian exam. Each exam is 80 minutes long. There are strict noise ordinances in effect nationwide on testing days, with severe consequences for anyone in violation of these noise ordinances.

Health

Healthcare is not hard to find, due to the frequency of Hospitals. found in cities. According to the Leressan Demographic Healthcare Coverage Survey (LDHCS), the city with the most healthcare coverage, and the healthiest citizens, is Montecari.

Death happens still, but in Leresso, it is hard to believe that 2% of the annual deaths in Leresso are due to avalanches. Avalanches are somewhat common, and they, for the most part, take place on the eastern slopes. It is there that they get the most snow, due to the weather patterns of northwest Antarephia.

Culture

The National Flag

The National Flag of Leresso

The national flag of Leresso is a very symbolic piece of art. The yellow fields simultaneously represent justice, the bright sun, and the north and south banks of the Kadmar River. The main color of the flag, blue, represents peace, vigilance, and the Kadmar River. The white on the flag represents remembrance, honor, truth, wisdom, and the snowy Kusanné Range. The four different blue stripes in the shape of a cross represent the four cardinal directions, and the star in the middle represents hope, unity, and prosperity. The two concentric circles are supposed to look like ripples in water, which represents the lasting effect Leresso hopes to create on the world.

Religion

In the western and southern parts of the country, Christic is the prevalent religion, whereas further north it becomes less prevalent. There is no national religion in Leresso; however, the native Northadi protest in front of Parliament to have their religion recognized as a religion.

There are several holidays that are nationally recognized by the Leressan people.

  • Independence Day: 19 May. As of 2020, the country will be celebrating its 196th Independence Day. Leresso celebrates Independence Day with parades, food, parties, and lots of fireworks. The firework laws are more lenient in the rural center of the country than they are on the coast, especially in Aludres.
  • Revolution Day: 24 June.
  • Festival of Light: Second Friday of July to Third Wednesday. (2019: July 13-18)\

Cuisine

Leressan cuisine is very vibrant. Most of the cuisine revolves around floral, herbal, and hearty elements in the food Leressans typically make. Here are a few dishes of note:

  • Tovtam (պորպամ), or "crispy herb bread" in Ingerish, is one of the Leressan staple foods. Tovtam is typically served before or with dinner. Most of the tovtam you will find in Leressan supermarkets will have both rosemary and lavender in them, though tovtam with only rosemary is cheaper to buy by about Ʀ6. Tovtam is not to be confused with the next item on our list.
  • Gebom (գեբոմ), or "heavy sweet bread", is similar to tovtam in most ways. Gebom is served with breakfast, sometimes on its own. Gebom is made the same way as tovtam, but with more butter and normally found with lavender. Although lavender is the common filling of gebom, this sweet treat can be also found made with rose. Gebom can also be made into the next item on our list.
  • Gedebom (գեդեբոմ), or "dessert bread", is one of the most popular desserts in Leresso. It is the same as Gebom, except the lavender and rose pieces are made into a flavorful cream. Gedebom can be described as floral creampuffs.
  • Kishyatom (ղւսչապոմ), or "Stewed spice meat", is the most popular food item in Leresso. It is similar to a beef stew, but it has carrots, celery, potatoes, squash (note: this is only added in Northadi Kishyatom), mild Leressan peppers, spicy Leressan peppers, ginger, and other spices. Traditionally served at dinnertime, though it could pass as lunch, Kishyatom is one of the most flavorful dishes of Leressan cuisine.

    Meals

    A typical Leressan breakfast constitutes of gebom, fruit juice, and eggs. Lunch is typically a hyevanotòme (չերանոպոմե), or "spicy meat bun", which is a sandwich made of spicy beef or lamb with lettuce and tomatoes on a Leressan water roll. Dinner varies, but one of the most common dishes served in Leressan restaurants for dinner is hyomobes (չոմոբես), a crusted fish dish, or kishyatom so tovtam bem, stewed spice meat with buttered herb bread. Dessert in Leresso is served at the same as dinner, and tends to be ice cream or gedebom.

    Other

    The national flower of Leresso is the white avalanche lily, which grows in the mountains of Northad, Avilan, and Cymerra. The flower represents purity, remembrance, honor, strength, and courage.

    Leresso has a national tongue-twister: "Setov to se yotes, vos te so toves," meaning: "Downwards to the ground, up to the heavens."

    In Leresso, it is customary to knock on the door of a person's room once when entering and once when leaving, as it is considered to be a haven for that person, and knocking on the door signals your respect for that person's haven, and a request to enter that person's dwelling. This relates to the Leressan belief in aihyabenàd, meaning that every Leressan person has their own personal spirit that lives where they sleep, and guards them from èmaghai (malicious spirits) whilst they sleep.
