Liosol (Alotol:Sedail; Ranec: Sedala; Hetan: Luso [luso]), officially the Sovereign Kingdom of Liosol (Broad Tolec: Thnmil Sedailar), is a unitary semi-parliamentary constitutional monarchical federation stretching from Lake Soltenna to the Gelög Sea. It is the motherland of the Alotol people, and many other non-native groups. According to the 2018 census, the population is 94,629,447, with 7.3 million of that number being residents of the capital and largest metropolis, Alotol City. The country is a member of the Soltennan Council, the Charter, and one of the founding members of the International Congress.

The Sovereign Kingdom of Liosol is one of the world's most developed and economically stable nations, with an HDI of 0.921 and a GDP of $2.61 trillion. Its financial opportunities and quality of life earned it a seat in the global financial organization known as the Global 9.

Etymology

The terms "Alotol" and "Liosol" likely come from the Hetanic name for the Rietic people around Lake Soltenna, the Eslador. Respectively, the terms are formed (according to linguistic evaluation) as follows:

Asledor → A(s)letor → Âlitov → Â(j)tuv
Asledor → A(s)letor → Âlitov → Â(j)tuv → Lejom + Â(j)tuv-da

"Soltenna", on the other hand, is believed to come from a Lnonicization of the Hetan term for the people, "esalzbane". This term was misinterpreted in Alotol writings, being written as "(e)salzbane" with the pronunciation of [sawtvanə]. Alotol now colloquially refer to the land as "Savton" [sawtɔ̃ŋ] or often just "Lnoecolhy".

History

Early Alotol civilization

The Alotol people migrated from Southern Soltenna, settling in the Ungagon Mountains and along Lake Soltenna. Most villages were isolated during this period and few people traveled far from home, giving the local tribal government the most power in the eyes of the people.

Ethnic changes

The Alotol people first formed a separate identity from their Rietic relatives around the early 700's BC. The reason for this was because of early contact with the Malas and Hetan peoples and the marriages between the groups.

Luma dynasty

Setole

The Kingdom of Setole, which was founded by the Luma Dynasty circa 437 BC, is thought to be the earliest 'Alotol' civilization, stretching from modern-day Alotol City to Lake Soltenna. The Luma Dynasty fell after the assassination of the king by Luma Gohan, his own son. After Belfan (Alotol City) was taken from the Kingdom of Setole by the Kingdom of Meln, Lanothi was established in the North as the new capital of the Kingdom of Setole.

Laio Lnon

Laio Lnon, or simply Laio, broke off from the Kingdom of Setoel in 121 BC, inhabiting the lower Alotol River and modern day Alotol City.

Pseudo-Hetanic Kingdom

Alotol Confederation

In 1253 AD, the Kingdom of Setoel (the largest of Northern states) established itself as the Alotol Empire. As time went on individual state joined the Imperial Confederation and created the gontei as a defense against the invading Western powers. Attempts to reach out to vassal states such as Malas ultimately failed in this early period, although the nation did manage to liberate some of the North of the country.

The Charter

In a last attempt to keep its imperial legacy in tact and to help its "most favorable neighbor", the Alotol Confederation entered into an union with Methinaqh known as the "Charter for Economic & Cultural Cooperation in the Two Noble Kingdoms."

Liquidation of the Confederation

In 1803 AD, after the 550th anniversary of the confederation was celebrated nine referendums were held to decide the fate of the country. It was argued that states could exit now that the Imperial Age was over, but some of the early states now felt tied, politically and culturally, to Liosol. A few countries left, but most of the empire retained her former territory. The Alotol Confederation had devolved into the Kingdom of Liosol.

Constitutional monarchial era

After a military coup that killed Antol the II occurred in 1831 the kingdom entered into an interregnum period. Every political faction fought over the future of the country until it was decided that a central monarchy could no longer work. While the nation was a confederation it worked well because there were multiple kings conveying in a court and there was no central place of power. After thinking long and hard the government decided a parliament would be wise as a somewhat feasible replacement to that system. A monarch[1] and prime minister[2] were elected together in the year 1840.

Third Western war

Modern era

The Qonklese Crisis

Mad October

Deunic Crisis

The Deunic Crisis was spurred by former LEUNA agent Deun Agore's release of thousands of classified documents on Athe. Of these documents Project Badol was the most controversial. It's contents claimed that Liosol had aided in the assassination of Gushlia's Sagam II. Pra Densok and other opposing parties demanded that Prime Minister Goe Jegan step down or the next election be moved up. The House of Status voted to move the 2020 election to 21 March, 2019. Election results declared D Kunaso winner of the election. Shortly after, however, he was assassinated after meeting Goe Jegan. Chancellor of the House of Status Eul Lana became Prime Minister of Liosol after Goe was incarcerated and the government began investigations into possible election meddling that led to a Kuelist majority. Pra Densok, a popular candidate representing the Hansobel Party, claimed to be the rightful winner and held an inauguration on (n/a) - declaring himself the first President of Liosol. Eventually, the two Houses reconciled and Eul conceded that the Kuelist Party rightfully won the 2019 election.

Politics

Government

Liosol is a semi-parliamentary system. The incumbent King is head of state but effectively has no power, shifting it to the Prime Minister (along with his cabinet) and House of Status. These two political bodies are voted upon by the people of Liosol every five years. The Prime Minister selects his own cabinet while the House of Status, which is the nation's legislature, is divided up, not by provinces, but by the enumerated votes of the Alotol people. Currently, the Alotol Kuelist Party (FGL) has a majority in the House os Status, making Liosol's current administration a predominately leftist one.

Composition of the House of Status as of 2019

Parties and elections

Liosol is currently made up of five recognized political parties. This number, according to housteofstatus.info.ac, is reached by winning at least 20 seats, two election cycles in a row. The House of Roses lost its status as a recognized ballot party in the 2019 election. According to statistical data run by the (JANI), the Alotol Kuelist Party is currently the most popular out of this number.
Pra Densok
20th prime minister
since 2019
Alotol election season comes only once every five years. A prime minister is elected during this process and the House of Status is appointed by the collective party votes of Liosol's population. The rest of the upper house is selected by the winner of the election. The next election has yet to be scheduled.

The current Prime Minister is Pra Densok.

Foreign relations

Liosol maintains relatively peaceful relationships with its Northern neighbors thanks to alliances established via the Charter. The country also participates in the Soltenna Council and is a founding member of the International Congress.

Military

Liosol currently has one of the biggest military budgets in Soltenna. Although the government does not publish documents detailing the military, it is rumored the nation has upwards of 530,000 active servicemen, and between 400,000 to 600,000 in reserves. Despite this high number, Liosol has not been officially involved in a war (as defined by the nation's constitution) since the '50s.

All students are required to serve a minimum of 16 months in military service before acquiring a full-time job. This law has caused recent controversy, especially after the Helsonian Collapse and Qonklese Crisis. Most nationalists consider military service to be a civic duty, while others believe it is a form of discrimination. Activists have tried to overturn this ruling on three separate occasions—the last being in 2008—but were outvoted each time.

Economy

Transportation, energy, and infrastructure

Liosol has an extensive technologically advanced network of highways, high-speed railways, and air routes running throughout the country. These services are operated by the Alotol Air and Road Initiative which is lead by the Minister of Travel.

Liosol provides train services to major cities, the coast, and the mountains but has begun phasing out this program in favor of its LER system and recent Soltenna Council initiatives like the SISTER Project. Minister of Travel Im Luson said in 2018 that the country plans to have high-speed rails capable of 400 kph in every region by 2025. Currently, the LER is finishing its biggest line known as BELAGRA - named for its original stops in Belfan, Lanothi, and Granas - with plans to extend it to Umasi and other western cities.

Some of Liosol's implementations of faster transportation have been derailed due to the 2006 Green Initiative by the House of Status. The purpose of the initiative, according to Former Minister Goe Janii, is to control CO2 levels in the country and promote public transportation like BELAGRA and independent bus companies.

Population Centers

The Doeln

The three cities of Banelkan, Lanote, and Alotol City are the most visited areas of Liosol, garnering an average of 32.3 million tourists a year. Collectively the government and the people of Liosol refer to this area as the "Doeln" or "Triangle".

Banelkan

Believed to be the first Alotol settlement in upper Soltenna, the ruined city of Banelkan now serves as a fascinating piece of archaeological evidence. This area does not boast a great population as the other two cities in the Doellen do, but it makes up for it in the amount of scientific endeavor that are undergone there.

Lanothi

Lanothi's nearly five million[3] residents are known for their great knowledge and devotion to their country. Once known as the "intellectual capital of the middle kingdoms", this city is home to the largest library in Soltenna and, possibly, Sahar. Lanote is also well known for the large amount of expats living in it and it is often referred to as "Soltenna's City". Another nickname for it is the "City of the Crown" due to it's status as the legislative and monarchical capital of Liosol.

Alotol City

Alotol City boasts both the title of executive capital of Liosol and the highest population center with a population of 7,392,684. This city is referred to as the "seat of government and the arts", since most officials and La Pop singers live here, although the latter have begun to move closer to Lanote now.

Ethnic groups

Traditionally, Liosol is said to contain three great and diverse ethnicities: Alotol, Hetan or Malasic, and the Gelög peoples.

Alotol

The Alotol makes up the biggest portion of Liosol's ethnic groups. The name originates from the Chanlosol words for 'the people.' Roughly 63% of Liosol identifies with this group while in reality, only about 48% of the population is true-blood Alotol.

Hetan

The Hetan are people who inhabited the Southwestern regions in prehistoric times.

Education

Education in Liosol is extremely important. Students are often overworked and pressured to get into good colleges. Liosol hosts one of the most famous international universities (Middle Kingdom University or MKU) in Alotol City.
