Sarsa (IPA: /ˈsarsa/, Sarsan: Sarsa [ˈʃarʃɜ]), officially the Kingdom of Sarsa (Sarsan: Merbamhe om Sarsa [ˈmerbɜmhɪ ʊm ˈʃarʃɜ]), is a country located in eastern Nagu. It is bordered in the south by Ukutunajas and in the north by Mablag. Sarsa is diverse both in terms of climate and in terms of culture; it consists of a dry region hugging the Asuran coast, and a rainforest region that occupies much of its interior, with these climates being separated by the Naguan Mountains. There are a large number of languages spoken within Sarsa's borders, belonging to at least four separate language families.
The etymology of the name Sarsa is unknown; it is believed to have originated from a substrate language that has long gone extinct. Folklore suggests it was [WIP idklol]
Before its current state as a parliamentary republic, Sarsa was a collection of city states ruled over by monarchs.
The Naguan mountain range divides Sarsa cleanly into three major regions: Western (or Coastal) Sarsa, Basin (or Ledyekic) Sarsa, and Eastern (or Interior) Sarsa.
Western Sarsa, which runs along the Asuran Coast, is mostly hot and arid (BWh), with arable land along the paths of seasonal and permanent rivers. Seasonal flash floods are a danger during the wet season, and as such most homes are built on hills to prevent water from destroying homes.
Eastern Sarsa takes up the majority of the country's area, and is mostly tropical rainforest (Af). It is part of one of Nagu's major river basins, and it is sparsely populated due to the density of the forests making navigation difficult.
Basin Sarsa, also known as the Ledyeki Basin, is climatologically similar to Eastern Sarsa.
Politics and Government
Sarsa is a federal state under a constitutional monarchy. The Great Speaker is the monarch and head of state who wields executive power, and this title is currently held by Speaker Loṛṣaru III. The Sarsan Constitution was codified in 1936,
In addition to being a constitutional monarchy, Sarsa is also a parliamentary democracy. The Parliament is Sarsa's legislative organ, and is made up of the Peoples' House, the High Council, and the Great Speaker. Most governance of Sarsa takes place between the former two houses, but in order for laws to be enacted, they must first be signed off by the Great Speaker. The parliament works under a multi-party system, with five main parties: the center-left Democratic Party, the center-right Libertarian Party, the Pan-Naguan Unity Party, the Kuulist Party, and the right wing Sarsan Nationalist Party.
