Larxia (Larxian: Larxia), officially known as The Kingdom of Larxia (Larxian: El Reino de Larxia), is a kingdom located in western parts of Andolia. Larxia is the fourth-largest nation in Andolia, covering 652,664 square kilometers. Larxia is the most populated nation of Andolia, with a population of 25,426,293 people. Larxia is divided into 9 states, and 3 Union territories. The capital of Larxia is New Larxia, which is also the most populated city of Larxia, with a population of 3,415,634. Majority of the nation's population belongs to the Larxian ethnic group, with their prominent language being Larxian. There are significant minorities, and immigrants from Polaris, Doll-Guldur, Aura and Andolia alike.

The land that the Larxians call home has been inhabited for a several thousands of years. The first recorded civilization started here in 3266 BF. In the beginning, there were small kingdoms, bordering each other. There were alliances, trades and animosity. The time from 3266 BF to 1806 BF was very turbulent for the region, as there was a constant grapple for power. Everybody wanted more land, and more power. This made the region very unstable. In 1806 BF the Kingdom of Galitia, won the war against their sworn enemies, the Kingdom of Leonesa, which led to the collapse of the allies of Leonesa. This marked the era of Galitian rule of Larxia, from 1806 BF to 904 BF. The Galitians ruled over present-day Larxia, for almost 1000 years. Following the fall of Galitians, several states emerged. The Galitians were still Kings, but their lands had decreased, by a lot. In around 155 AF, the Galitians, once again rose to power, and invaded the other Kingdoms. By around 470 AF, the Galitians ruled over whole of present-day Larxia, but they did not stop here. They were hungry for more, as they went onto invading other neighbouring kingdoms. At it's peak, The Kingdom of Lercia, as called by the Galitians, spanned from west-to-east, around 725 AF. The empire fell in 1273 AF, with the Kingdom being restricted to current day Larxia.

Larxia borders Irador to the west and Daskel to the South. The nearest countries by land are Alchera and Hertfordshire & Jammbo. Larxia is considered to be a developed nation with a GDP of $859,815,513,634, led by Technology, Defense, Finance, and Tourism Industries, and a GDP per capita of $33,816, which is moderately ranked among the nations of Esferos. The Larxian military is one of the strongest militaries in the world, with a military budget of $16,336,494,759, and a total of 305,954 personnel. This makes Larxia a very good trading partner, and Larxia has trade treaties with several nations. Larxia is also a founding member of the Andolian Association for Regional Cooperation.

The way to refer to a citizen of Larxia is as Larxian, which is completely independent of the ethnic group Larxian, which comprises of the majority of the Larxian population. In ancient times there were different Kingdoms, but during the peak of the Galitians, it was called The Empire of Lercia. The current King of Larxia belongs to the Galitian family of rulers.

History

Larxian history is mainly divided into four large periods: Antiquity(5200-1806 BF), starting with the earliest human influence in Western Andolia, and ending with the formation of the Kingdom of Lercia; the Classical Age(1806-904 BF), which ended with the fall of the Kingdom of Lercia; the Medieval Age(904 BF-155 AF) ending with the rise of Galitians, and re-establishment of Kingdom of Lercia; the Modern Age(155-1273), starting with the expansionist ideologies of the Galitians, and the establishment of the Empire of Lercia, and ending with the fall of the Empire; and the Contemporary age(1273-present), starting with the fall of the Empire.

Government

 Larxia is a Complete Monarchy, which means that the Monarch is the head of state, and the head of the government. King James of Larxia is the reigning monarch, ruling over the nation since 1402, ever since his father, King Maddy III died. Larxia was previously a Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy, meaning the King was the head of state, but the President was the head of the government, but that system was abolished by a popular vote in 1421, transferring all power to the monarch, King James. The last President of Larxia was President Jules McEnroe, who was in office from 1415-1421, serving one and a half terms. The nation has government divided into Executive, Legislative and Judiciary branches, and a fourth branch, called the Royal Council, though the layout of these divisions is rather unique as compared to other nations of the world.

 

Branches

Executive Branch

The Executive Branch of Larxia is comprised of the King at the national level, Governors at the provincial level and Mayors at the city/district level. The Governors and Mayors are elected for a 4 year term with same rules. They can form their own cabinets composed of ministers to aid in the governing of their provinces. The usual size of the cabinet averages from 12-16 members. Quite a few Nobles participate in the Gubernatorial elections, and there are many Governors currently in office, who belong to one or the other Noble Families.

Legislative Branch

The Legislative Branch, now this is interesting. What is the point of having a separate Legislative Branch in a complete Monarchy? That is a valid question. When the powers of the President were transferred to the King, the role of the President became obsolete, but as a politician, the 73 year old Mr. McEnroe is one of the most seasoned politicians in Larxia. The King understood that too, so instead of abolishing the Parliament completely, he removed the upper house of the Parliament, but kept the Lower House intact, and increased the number of politicians who can get elected to the Parliament. The King wanted the people of Larxia to be heard, so he kept a little shadow of the previous democracy alive in the form of the House of Commons. The purpose of this body is to bring the populations demands, grievances, suggestions and requests to the Monarch's notice. This idea was very well recepted by the public and politicians alike. This body cannot pass any laws without the Monarch's approval, but can pass the idea of the law forward to the Monarch. The House can only pass laws in special situations, like having the Monarch's permission beforehand, or in case of an internal strife. In such cases, the proposal must be put to vote, and can only be passed if it receives 2/3rd majority, which is then sent to the King to sign, and the King may suggest some changes to the proposal if he seems it fit. This makes the Legislative Branch unicameral.

Judiciary Branch

The Judiciary Branch of Larxia is based on the Common Law, and this legal system is codified and protected by the Constitution of Larxia, a set of laws that all the courts, legislative bodies and even the King must follow. The Supreme Court of Larxia is situated in New Larxia. Every Province has a High Court in their respective capital cities. Some states are so small that they share a High Court, which is situated in one of the provinces capital city. There are different courts for the Executive and Military affairs. The Judges of Larxia are appointed by the King, and by the House of Commons by popular vote. The Chief Justice of Larxia is appointed by the King.

The Royal Council

The Royal Council is the fourth branch of Larxian government. This council consists of military strategists, economists, politicians and religious leaders. This is a cabinet equivalent which is appointed by the King, to help him in the governance of Larxia. The different sectors and ministries are still there, only the democratic government was abolished. The King has given portfolios to the members of this Council in a bid to delegate work to different people. In order to ensure that no community feels left out, every political party is given equal number of seats on the council. 

 

Diplomacy

The Larxian International Relations are mainly characterized by peaceful intervention, international cooperation and peaceful settlement of conflicts. These principles are given up only if the situation is absolutely dire. The nations Foreign Affairs are headed by the Foreign Minister, currently Prince Dominic, Duke of Salaman. The Royal Council and the House of Commons may advise the Prince on various matters. Any International Treaty or change to the foreign policy must be approved and signed off on by the King. The nation is friendly to most countries, without any particular exceptions. Larxia is one of the founding members of the newly established Andolian Association for Regional Cooperation(AARC), and while it is rather new(as of August 1421), The AARC will surely see an increase in popularity as the World descends into chaos in the near future.

Despite being a fundamentally peaceful nation, Larxia fields a sizable military, with a total of 305,954 personnel, which is one of the largest armed forces in the world, and the largest in Andolia. There is a Compulsory Service for atleast 2 years, meaning every citizen must serve in any branch of the armed forces for at least 2 years between the age of 18 and 35. A large amount of the Military budget is spent on military technology and production of military vehicles and armaments. A total of $16,336,494,759(1.9% of GDP). The current iteration and doctrine of the Larxian Armed Forces were created in the year 1259, after the passage of National Security Agreement. Since the creation of NSA, Larxia has not been a part of any conflict, instead participating in peacekeeping efforts and humanitarian missions across the world. The nation has, in some cases, supported certain factions in foreign Civil Wars, sending them funds, weapons and sharing intelligence and technology with them. The Larxian Army has 231,511 enlisted personnel, the Air Force has 50,821 personnel, and the Navy has 23,622 personnel. Furthermore, there is an estimate number of 200,000 reserve forces, which are to conscripted in case of a foreign invasion, or a civil war.
