Aschlon at a glance
WIP

National Anthem -Freedom!
Lyrics
Spoiler: show
Hear the sacred cry:
"Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!"
Hear the sound of broken chains
See noble equality enthroned.

Their most cruel tyrant now overthrown
The united Aschlon!
And the free people of the world reply:
"To the great Aschlonian people, hail!"
And the free ones of the world reply:
"To the great Aschlonian people, hail!"

May the laurels be eternal
that we were able to achieve
Let us live crowned with freedom
Or let us swear to die with glory!
Or let us swear to die with glory!
OOC- Yes this is literally me stealing the Argentian National Anthem and making it Aschlonian

Government

Core Government Make Up
The Aschlon Tarc is made up of 10 representatives, each from one of the provinces. Every two years an election is held, with each citizen 17+ given the vote, in which each provenance elects one person to represent them in the Tarc. These people have to be: 17+, a citizen of Aschlon and have no previous criminal record. Each of these representatives choose a group of 30 advisors.

Responsibilities
The members of the Tarc are the general head. One will suggest a law, and the rest will vote on it, if the law gets the majority to agree it will be passed. If it doesn't it must wait thirty days before being suggested again. They are also repsonsible for declaring war, declaring aid and most internation duties. Their advisors do all the other bits that ensures Aschlon runs smoothly. ASSO is there to assist if they are needed.

Geography

The North
The North provenance is situated on the North of the Western island. It is barren and mountainous with many valleys. It is hot, with temperature going over 32*C. It usually rains only in the winter period, sometimes resulting in great draughts. The biggest mountain in Aschlon, Mt. Zo, is located here. It is 7,338m above sea level.

Hawar
Hawar provenance is situated on the very West of the Western island. It is similar to The North, but flatter containing a great many lakes. It doesn’t rain very often. The biggest lake in Aschlon is located here, lake Henry with 1350km2.

Hootoft
Hootoft provenance is situated on the Norht-East of the Western island. It is the most populated provenance and is the least barren on the Western island. It is rather flat land, with a great jungle that lines the North-Eastern part of the coast. It is rather hot and most of the Western rivers flow through Hootoft.

Finnlish
Finnlish provenance is situated on the North of the Eastern island. It is covered in many forests, with the villages and towns of its people situated in natural and manmade clearings. It is very humid there, with unpredictable weather patterns.

The Low Lands
The Low Lands provenance is situated in the South of the Eastern island. It’s border with Finnlish is covered in lush forests, the rest of it covered in mainly large plains. The plains are very fertile, and a great number of crops are grown there every year. The Southern coast of the Low Lands are rather chilly, with the occasional glacier floating past.



OOC- this will soon become obselete

History

The Holy Kingdom of Aschlon
Aschlon was settled on in the 16th century by Heyra. It began as a trade colony, exploiting the local population and tricking them into working the fertile lands of Aschlon, for glass beads, know as Kash. They also took thousands of tons of iron from them, which the natives had taken great pains to mine out, claiming to have an illness only cured by "the rubbing of iron across the soles of their feet." Eventually, it formed its own nation, the Holy Kingdom of Aschlon, headed by a King and royal family and controlled with the Holy Aschlon Church, a brand of Christianity. It also gradually gained its own ethnic and cultural identity, after absorbing the ethnic population and its practises, taking on many aspects of their native tongue. In this era Aschlon was quite feudal, with the Monarchy having the power of life and death, and the Church suppressing ideas of democracy with threats to the soul. Due to the Monarchy suppressing non Church approved literature, not much is known about this time except for what we can glean from religious propaganda. 
During the great war, Aschlon, at that time under the reign of Ferdinand I, joined the war on the side of the Ardian Empire, due to its historic connections with Heyra, another ally of the Ardians.

Revolution
This continued for a while, until King Henry II rose to the throne in 1978. He was deeply unpopular with the people due to oppresive laws and an uncaring nature towards the people of Achlon. The Holy Church was also losing popularity as popular figures, such as Henryd Jefferson, denounced it and revealed the extravagant and easy lives the leaders of the Church led compared to the average Aschlonian. Tensions continued to grow as pro-democracy protests were brutally put down by the army. The tension boiled over in 2007, and the mayor of Hootoft, the capital of Aschlon, declared a revolution against the oppressive monarchy. A 5 year civil war commenced, with the Hootofts coming out on top, executing the leading members of the Church and the entirety of the royal family.

The People’s Republic of Aschlon
With the Monarchy and Church now overthrown, the victors soon set about turning the newly renamed ‘People’s Republic of Aschlon’ into a democratic state. First the two islands that make up Aschlon were split into five “provenances”: the North, Hootoft, Finnlish, Hawar and the Low Lands. A censor was declared, and the amount of people recorded. A new democratic system was adopted, which will be covered in the ‘Government’ section. This took 6 years.

The Holy Church Of Aschlon WIP

The Holy Church Of Aschlon (HCA), also known as the Holy Aschlonian Church, is the most commonly followed faith in Aschlon, boasting ~2,401,000 members. Its foundings and origins are unknown, except that it is a type of Christianity. It it heavily disliked by most of Aschlon's population, due to its history of being used as a tool to control the nation and supress thoughts.

The Sign Of The Holy Church
Spoiler: show



AT A GLANCE

The HCA preaches humanity's insignificance against the glory of God and his 'chosen'. These 'chosen' are preists and monarchs who claim to be able to see the Lord's angels. There are many verses in its Bible where it openly mocks humanity, and it often implies humanity is a slave race, made to obey God and his 'Chosen'. The most famous verse (Ramines 11-15) in supporting this argument reads:
"And the Lord looked apon his serfs, and picked five. He breathed light into their souls, and charged them with ruling their lessers. And they rejoiced, for the Lord have given them control over all the people"

Hierachy System
The HCA includes a hierachy system, explained in Ramines.
At a glance it looks like this:

The higher up a tier you are the more luxuries you are entitled to. You are also entiteled to be able to boss those on a lower tier than you to your heart's content. You are free to murder without consequence as long as you only kill people on a lower tier than you.

The HCA, until the Revolution, was the mandatory religion in Aschlon. Monarchs and priests where above the law in every scense, and could do whatever they pleased. A famous example of this is 'Jame's law', in which 13 woman were taken off the streets and brutally murdered for the priests of St. Jame's chapel's amusment.

ASSO

ASSO (Aschlon State Service Organisation) is Aschlon’s secret service, an organisation dedicated to the protection of the Nation from outside and inside threats. The organisation was founded in 2008, mainly in order to help the HRA monitor their soldiers. Since then they have expanded, growing from about a hundred members to five thousand various agents and personnel. ASSO, as a whole, is exempt from the law, however anyone found abusing that power can individually be held to account. The head of ASSO, currently Hadyn Lost, is answerable only to the Tarc, and has the power to temporarily create laws to protect the nation, however any member of the Tarc can veto it at any time.

Haydn Lost
Hadyn Lost is the current head of ASSO. He took over the position from his predecessor, who died in a car accident when his brakes jammed, in 2012. He is very anti-religious and anti-monarchy, attempting several times to pass laws that would make atheism the state mandatory belief, though he was vetoed every time by the Tarc. Recently he has been using the excuse of the NACG to push religious persecution, however this is largely unsuspected.

The NACG

The NACG is a terrorist group based in Aschlon. They were founded in 2013, after it became clear that the monarchy had lost the war. They committed many terrorist acts during the Anarchy, trying to stop the new emerging government. They were unsuccessful, and were believed to have disbanded in 2017, as it became clear that they could not stop them. They appeared to reband in the early 2020s, setting fire to the Tarc as their first act.

Ideals
The NACG are all devout beleivers in the Aschlonian Holy Church, and carry all the ideals they do too, including (but not limited to): believing in a God created hierachy, the evil of suicide, the need for a monarch, the evils of atheism, being the chosen of the Lord and the existence of Eden as a reward for the faithful. Their goals are are to spread the beleifs of the Holy Church of Aschlon round the globe and re-establishing the Theocratically supported Monarchy that Aschlon had before the Revolution.
