”AD MELIORA."


The Reunified Socialist Federation of New Derusmia/Wiedervereinte Sozialistische Föderation von Neu Druzmya (RSFND/WSFND) or for short, New Derusmia or Derusmia (rarely), is a Federal Constitutional Socialist Republic located in Southeast Ardia. It was founded in the year 1985, 14 years after the collapse of the Unified States of Derusmia. As a highly developed country with a very high standard of living, it upholds a social security and universal health care system, environmental protection, tuition-free education, and free public transport. The main industries of New Derusmia are tourism, agriculture products, and Information and Software Technologies. New Derusmia has a population of 111 million.


HISTORY


NOTE: This section is under review, so expect many changes.

In the beginning, there was a nomadic tribe known only as the Rüs, which had settled in Concordia. The Rüs conquered every tribe in the surrounding area, and was seemingly locked in a state of war with the neighbouring Svåldi, in Nordheit, and the Yōokari (Yukari), in the Süden Territories. All tribes claimed large amounts of territory. Eventually, the wars ended with the Rüs absorption of the Svåldi and Yōokari.

Hundreds of kingdoms that had descended form the Rüs had begun appearing all across the area and began warring for as much territory as possible. This period of time lasted for almost a thousand years, until a deadly plague spread across the region, eradicating much of the warring kingdoms. After the plague had passed, the kingdoms put aside their differences and unified in 1706, under the leadership of Andrew II the Unifier. The new Unified Derusmian Empire was a peaceful, prosperous, civilised and powerful empire, home to major industries, ports, trading centers, and markets, however, as time went on, the monarchs became more hostile and aggressive, and so did the empire. Expansion and strength were prioritised, much at the citizen’s loss. In the year of 1899, Markus IV the Tyrant rose to power, executing anyone who dare speak against the throne. The same year, the citizens launched a large-scale revolution against the monarchy, and after two brutal years of war, a democratic government had been put in its place.

In the Great War, the Republic of Derusmia was on the hostile side, and had a major part in the conflict. There had also been an attempts to harness nuclear power to provide energy for the growing nation and to build powerful bombs. However, the events of the Valter City incident in 1960 had resulted in the closure of any Nuclear Programs operating at the time, and the closure of any Nuclear Programs for the future.

Two years after Valter City incident, Daniel Leoch was elected as Prime Minister. However, just as he was elected, government corruption began to rise, as major corporations grew while the middle and low classes began to starve. The years 1962 to 1966 are known to many as ‘the Dark Days’, due to the extreme poverty and hopelessness of citizens during that time. The Dark Days are also the reason why the civil war began.

The civil war, also known as the winter war or the second revolution had started in the winter of 1967 and had seen over 5 million dead and many more injured. It started with the rebelling of countless local governments against the corrupt government. A ‘Revolutionists Army’ soon was founded, and began capturing and holding military bases, and were often met with brute force. In mid 1971, the ‘Battle for the Capital’ began. The remaining soldiers and forces defended against the Revolutionists Army’s advance into the capital. In the end, the surviving soldiers turned on the government, and along with the Revolutionists Army, stormed the capital building, resulting in a victory for the Revolutionists Army. Afterward, the two revolution leaders had a debate whether the new nation should become capitalist or socialist. Eventually, an agreement was reached, and Derusmia was split into two. In the south was the Southern Socialist States of Derusmia, and in the North was the North Republic.

The three nations entered a 14 year period of extreme isolation, as the three nations began to repair what had once been a powerful nation. There is not much information that can be found during this period, though stories from former citizens of these nations tell stories of heavily nationalist governments, and anti-foreign policies, though these stories should be taken with a grain of salt, as there is not much evidence to prove these claims. In 1985, all of that changed, as the 2 small nations came together to discuss over a new, unified nation. After much negotiation and discussion, the constitution of New Derusmia was formed. The SSSD and the NR merged into one to create New Derusmia.

GEOGRAPHY AND CLIMATE




The New Derusmian landscape is diverse, ranging from white sand beaches, snowcapped mountains, dense forestry, and wide plains. The highest peak is Mt. Tate, at approximately 3670m, and the lowest point is the town of Whindes, at -8m. The longest river is the Ardem River, which also provides the water supply for the Capital Region and parts of the Süden Teritorries.

Ever since the beginning of New Derusmia, the government has been working to create a world class environment. By mid 2018, the government reached it's goal of being one of the top 5 most environmentally friendly nations in the world. Today, New Derusmia boasts an extremely well maintained and beautiful environment.

GOVERNMENT


New Derusmia is a Federal Constitutional Socialist Republic and sovereign state made up of 5 self-governing regions named Cantons. The President functions as both head of state and head of government and appoints the Commander-In-Chief/Oberfehlsaber, who in turn, appoints the Commanders of the 3 branches of the Defence Forces. The president is elected by direct vote for a single five-year term, during which he or she appoints and presides over the cabinet. The powers of the President are also defined by the constitution.

The Reunified Socialist Federation of New Derusmia was formed on 9 February 1985 when two Derusmian nations united to become the 5 cantons of New Derusmia. Under a federal system, powers are divided between a central government and individual cantons.

An interesting feature of New Derusmian politics is the annual Socialism Referendum, as defined in the constitution of New Derusmia as ‘an annual vote of the people that decide if the nation stays as a socialist state, or reverts to capitalism’. The constitution also states that ‘parties can choose to change when the referendum is held or abolish it completely, thus keeping the nation capitalist or socialist for as long as the party is in power. Never in New Derusmia’s history has the nation been switched to Capitalism.


The Palast der Republik located in the Government district of Metria City.

There are three arms of the Derusmian Government:
* Legislative: The unicameral Domestic General Assembly, makes federal law, declares war, approves treaties, has the power of the purse, and has the power of impeachment, by which it can remove sitting members of the government.
* Executive: The President appoints the members of the Cabinet and other officers, who administer and enforce federal laws and policies.
* Judiciary: The legal arm of the federal government. It is independent of the other two arms, and is responsible for enforcing the laws and deciding whether the other two arms are acting within their powers.

The Domestic General Assembly is a unicameral assembly that uses the single transferable vote system. It consists of representatives that originate from the city or major town they represent. Representatives are elected by people who are valid citizens, have completed 12 years of education, and are currently residing in their canton. Representatives meet to discuss matters in the Palast der Republik in the Central Government District of Metria.
