"Rovenia" came from the Cobenan word for the country, Rovinig, which came from the founder, Roinesoya, and the word for country, "Vinig". Rovenia was originally called the Madim Union (Vágož Màdim), for the historical name of the region, Màdinò, but people preferred Rovenia.
Rovenia formed in 1911 when the king of Cobena, Roinesoya, came to an agreement to unite Cobena, Mirozda, and Evanja, three countries that shared close languages and history. Rovenia, and the predecessor countries, always stayed mostly isolated until more recently. Also, since Rovenia came together, Mirozda and Evanja have thought that Cobena got more attention. Recently, people from those regions have had protests with the goal of either getting a new, neutral capital (the preferred outcome), rotate the capital between the three regions, or secede and form a new country with its capital at Òsomak, a major city split between the two regions.
Rovenia traditionally had two major parties: Isibam (Liberal), and Osòpàpo (Conservative), but recently, the Asame Kol (Kúúlist Party) and Akòmèk Miroz Evan (Miroz Evanese Independence Party) have become more popular recently. The AK is most popular in Cobena, and AME is most popular in Mirozda and Evanja.
The government of Rovenia is split in four divisions: Executive, Legislative, Judicial, and (unnamed).
The executive branch is made up of the two presidents and their cabinet. Each president serves one 6-year term. There is a presidential election every 3 years. The current presidents are Eńłaka Lajana Iòvga Kas from Cobena and Oadina Soliš Łìzít Ekàt from Evanja. The reason this happens is because people in Rovenia feel that having two presidents creates a balance and neither get too powerful, and have 6-year terms so there isn't constantly an election.
The legislative branch is made up of the Representative House. Every county elects two representatives, and every territory elects one and the house elects another, with the elected representative's vote counting as 5 votes.
The National Court is made up of 7 judges, two from each region, and one more to break ties that is elected by all 4 branches of government, with the judicial branch's votes counting as 5.
The (unnamed) branch is made up of the bureaus of Rovenia. It is led by Xasòmip "Xasòm" Soliš Aigònò Ebêc.

Counties vs. Territories
There are little differences between counties in territories. Territories are usually larger in area, smaller in population, and mostly rainforest. Legal differences are that territories elect one representative and the house elects another.
Before 1911, modern-day Rovenia was mostly isolationist, and stayed neutral on most things. After 1911, Rovenia decided to be a little more into foreign relationships, but not much. It tries to make friends, and stay out of conflict.
