Karduv (IPA: /kɑɹdəv/, Native language: k$a j`a vy;e Kàrjàvyer, IPA: /kə᷅ˀd͡ʒə̀vjɛ̄ˀ/), officially the Republic of Karduv, is a country located in West Soltenna. It is bordered by the Union of Seang Pe, the Sovereign Kingdom of Liosol, the Republic of Mai Thi, the Ru Democratic People's Republic, and the Huy En Republic. Karduv also shares maritime borders with the People's Republic of Yachiro. Despite not actually bordering it, the Republic of Karduv has many cultural, historical, and linguistic ties to the Qonklese Federation. The Republic of Karduv maintains a strong relationship with Qonklaks.

Etymology

The name is thought to come from the Proto-Kwang roots *kèʔḍê and *kwaj, meaning "outside land"

History

Prehistory

Humans arrived in Karduv in {date}.

Origins

The Karduvics were originally a subset of the Kwang people living near the Ungagon Mountains during the Wa Dynasty. It is unclear when they started to form a culturally distinct group when compared to the rest of the Kwang peoples. Due to a lack of records from the time period, most information comes from secondhand sources written during the Lya dynasty, or from later Karduvic sources. It is estimated that the Karduvics began to emerge as a distinct group during the mid to late 9th century BCE.

7 kingdoms of Karduv

While not under the direct rule of the Wa and Mor dynasties, the Karduvics were believed to be tributaries of the Qonklese during this time. According to Lya dynasty records, there were 7 Kingdoms within the Ungagon Mountains that were tributaries of the Wa, and remained as such in the following centuries. While only under tributary status, the 7 kingdoms were not afforded much actual political freedoms, and any diplomatic incidents or expansion done by one of the 7 kingdoms were quickly resolved by Qonklese pressure. As such, the political structure and status of the 7 kingdoms remained relatively unchanged throughout the Wa and Mor dynasties, though tensions and grudges began to build between the families of the respective kingdoms.

Karduvic migrations

After the disintegration of authority in the Mor dynasty, the Karduvics found themselves free from the oversight of the Qonklese, and as such the old order of the 7 Kingdoms of Karduv quickly broke down as each king sought to resolve their respective familial grudges. The subsequent wars lead to the unification of the 7 kingdoms under Lorgung under some guy probably idk in 690 BCE. With Qonklaks still embroiled in war, the kingdom of Lorgung underwent massive expansion into the west. Under X, the Karduvic small script was adopted, based on the Qonklese seal script used by the Lya dynasty. Qonklese logograms were used in conjunction with the small script.

After the death of X in 528 BCE, the order in the Kingdom of Lorgung disintegrated as a child heir took the throne. Leaving Karduv a disunified patchwork of smaller states. Karduvic expansion continued throughout this period, though not under a unified Karduvic state.

As the Le Dynasty Qonklaks collapsed, the various feuding fiefdoms in Karduv once again started to come into conflict. With the lack of any Qonklese intervention, the 11 states began to fight amongst themselves for power over potentially all of Karduv.

For a period of time (791-1123 CE) the Karduvic sphere was mostly unified under the rule of X under the Kingdom of Zìrjìrng.

Pho dynasty rule

By 1310(?) CE, the entirety of the Karduvic states had come under the rule of the Pho dynasty.

Maithic Invasion

Mai dynasty (Qonklaks)

Mai dynasty (Karduv)

The Mai Dynasty during its establishment in 1393

After the overthrow of the Mai dynasty in 1393, descendants and relatives of the Mai Emperor fled and established the Mai dynasty in Karduv. Though the dynasty is descended from Sãļŋàŋ and the original Maithic Khuls, the dynasty has been completely Qonkified, and would eventually integrate itself as Karduvic as they established their new capital in Vordeng. The Mai dynasty would continue to exist for another 5 centuries, though a shadow of its former power. They could not claim ownership of Qonklaks without fear of retaliation from the Du dynasty and its later successors. As a result, the Mai dynasty effectively acted as a buffer zone between Qonklaks and the powers of northern Soltenna, siding with whichever one was more likely to maintain stability in the region. The Mai dynasty also extracted tribute from various small northern Soltennan groups, and from groups in Huy En(?) that we’re not already under Qonklese hegemony. Despite trying to maintain stability, the Mai dynasty would only continue to decay as the emperors grew less and less concerned with maintaining an already existent stability. This decadence would cause major public discontent throughout the 19th century. With groups such as the Maithics and the Xs fighting successful independence wars, leaving the Mai dynasty with less and less power and influence. By 1900 the Mai dynasty was left with only core Karduvic territory left, and had become unpopular with both the nobility and the general populace. By 1904, the political revolutionary Zhèr Terve had gained widespread support, leading to a revolution and civil war that would end up being the downfall of the Mai dynasty.

The Karduvic Civil War

During the unstable political rule of the last Mai rulers, various calls for a more modern and representative system of government would become commonplace throughout the nation. These calls would be stirred by local revolutionaries and spokespeople who would call for the removal of the corrupt and inefficient monarchy. Figures such as Zhèr Terve (later known as Yup Zing Pye) and Ngan Nga gained a large public following. These calls for revolution would also be met with strong anti-democratic reactionary movements, endorsed and promoted heavily by the empowered military of the Mai. The reactionaries would form a solid base within eastern rural populations, spreading fear of the revolutionaries confiscating their farmland and replacing them with factories. The tensions came to a head in 1904, when a group of revolutionaries would take up arms and storm government buildings in the capital of Vordeng, lead by Zhèr Terve himself. They captured the current emperor, Mai Chyo Ngò, and held him prisoner as they proclaimed the new Republic of Karduv. The military did not initially try to fight this takeover, but they urged the revolutionaries to instead establish a Constitutional Monarchy, and to not execute or exile the emperor. While they bickered, the emperor was caught in an escape attempt to Rongyo, but was captured. The military, fearing his execution was near, declared the revolutionaries to be enemies of the state. They recaptured Vordeng and the emperor, and forced the republicans to flee west to the city of Pyenget. Chaos would ensue as the military would be divided between those loyal to the high command and the emperor and those who sought the change of the revolutionaries.

Administrative divisions

Karduv is divided into thirteen separate administrative divisions, of which ten are provinces, one a special administrative region, and one a special district. The disputed Pomas Region is officially an autonomous province of Karduv, though it is disputed with X. Karduv is largely a unitary state, with each of the provincial governments being subservient to the national government, though some provinces (such as Pomas and the Dual Provinces) have additional autonomy not afforded to other provinces.

Foreign relations

Karduv maintains a strong relationship with Qonklaks, and most of its other neighbors. There have been diplomatic disputes with X in the past, and tensions are still somewhat high between the two, especially regarding ownership of the Pomas Region. Tensions with Ru and Yachiro have been hostile since the downfall of Kuulism in Karduv, as the the former partners have started to threaten action against each other in recent years.

Karduv takes its sun from the Mai Dynasty, whereas Qonklaks takes theirs from the X dynasty. In Karduv it is often referred to as the Karduvic sun in order to distinguish it from the Qonklese one..
