Overview
Kopsje, officially known as the Commonwealth of Kopsje, is a country located in North Cotf Arayne on the Azure Peninsuala. It lies east of the Empire of Achkaerin and north of Midarayne, and has a shoreline along the Abydoni Sea to the south. It has an estimated population of 16.3 million, and an estimated National GDP of 220 Billion (USD). The country is governed as a semi-federal republic and self described 'parliamentary state' with the State capital and largest city, Dzunho, located on the southern peninsula of Yrntoz.

The country is comprised of nine ethno-centric regions granted a degree of federal autonomy but ultimately answering to the Central government centralized in Dzunho. The nine regions are as follows: Quom, Issong, Unnugach, Ikuiat, Nunataitok, Yrntoz, Quviarsuk, Pukaq, and Pitsiq. It is important to understand that Kopsje is a Country and not a Nation, though it can be said that Kopsje is a Country of nine nations, each regional province considered its own 'nation' in the sense of each region maintaining its own language, rituals, and cultural identity. Because of this Kopsje is less of a unified national political entity, and more of a loose union in which a centralized governing body, Called the State Parliament of Kopsje, is meant to act as a mediary between the needs of each region, the over all "common wealth" of the region as a whole, and foreign negotiations that would drastically effect the region as a whole.

Due to the diverse atmosphere of the country, the Rus language, inherited from regional interaction with the once dominant Rus Empire, has become the Lingua Franca of the region. Those seeking to venture to Kospje are advised to learn basic Rus above any regional language. Though the country of Kopsje is a diverse union of different nations, an all encompassing culture, often referred to as "Commonwealth Culture" by the natives, it utalised when dealing with "Kangzi" or foreigners, and is recommended to be studied and reciprocated by victors to the country.

Politics in Kopsje
« Reply #1 on: February 14, 2021, 12:08:53 AM »
Politics in Kopsje functions within the framework of a Representative Republic under a parliamentary system, in which the State Parliament is the highest organ of state authority. Kopsje is internationally classified as semi-federal Republic and is comprised of nine constituent region states and the municipality city of Dzunho. Officially each of the nine regions are classified as constituent states and are united by a document known as the Pact of Yrntoz which is seen as the founding document of the contemporary Kopsje state. Theoretically each Region is granted a degree of autonomy and respected in their regional ethnic makeup and practices. In recent decades, the State Parliament has slowly gained more political power over the Regions which has become the subject of fierce debate amongst the Members of the State Parliament, and regional Congressional Assemblies.   

The State Parliament
The State Parliament of Kopsje is the unifying organ of power in country it is comprised of 178 seats each elected from the various regions via universal suffrage for all citizens of the commonwealth aged 20 and older.  Of the 178 seats 18 are automatically allocated for each region, and act as the seat for Regional Delegates. Each Region is granted two delegate Seats and are meant to give bipartisan voice to their individual districts needs. The other 160 seats of the parliament are decided in a State Election, in which individuals throughout the Country are elected, usually on a partisan platform, every 5 years.

The primary function of the State Parliament is to represent Kopsje as a political entity with foreign countries, by signing trade agreements, military treaties, handling the relations of foreign countries, and determining whether the country and its regions will adhere to international treaties. In recent decades, the Power of the Parliament has expanded to draft and enact legislation that would be federally adhered to by each Region. This has been something that has been the subject of fierce debate within Kopsje Political circles. Kopsje as a singular political entity does not have a recognized head of state or government. Instead, the Parliament is seen as the supreme authority in the country, while various Commissions are established by the Parliament to handle specialized areas of governance and authority such as the Commission of International Affairs & the Commission of State Agricultural Harmony.

The concept of Political Parties is a relatively new concept in the Parliament of Kopsje instead political lines being drawn along likeminded agendas in the form of Parliamentary Factions. As of the current Parliament two factions dominate, these being the Integrationists & the Regionalists. Respectively the Integrationists have a political culture of supporting a more centralized government and promoting Commonwealth Culture often seen at the expense of the nine Regions. In Contrast the Regionalists have a political culture of supporting devolutionist policies and promoting the autonomy of each Region, often seen of as a state of weakening the Country as a whole. Of the Seats in parliament 56 seats are held by the Integrationists, while 54 are held by the Regionalists; 18 are automatically granted to each of the nine regions, 2 per region, and 49 are held by independents.
