Sarsa (IPA: /ˈsarsa/, Sarsan: Sarsá [sɐrˈsá]), officially the Kingdom of Sarsa (Sarsan: Kijáppova Sarséppa [kɪˈdʒ:áp:ʊvɐ sɐrˈsép:ə]), 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.

Etymology

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]

History

Before its current state as a parliamentary republic, Sarsa was a collection of city states ruled over by monarchs.

Geography

A salt lake in western Sarsa, the mountain peak Veféja (White Peak), and Lake Maispe in eastern Sarsa.

Sarsa lies on the western coast of Nagu, facing the Asura Ocean. It lies wholly in the northern hemisphere. It covers 480,535 km2 of western Nagu. It borders Ukutunajas in the south and Mablag in the north. The Kupriksruksa mountains run parallel to the Asura Ocean; they define the three geographic regions of the country.

The mitma (coast), to the west, is a narrow, mostly arid plain that is occasionally marked with valleys from seasonal rivers. The féja (highlands) is the region of the Kupriksruksa. The third region is the atmá (jungle), an expanse of mostly flat terrain that is covered by the Naguan rainforest. The vast majority of Sarsa's land is within this region.

Most Sarsan rivers originate in the peaks of the Kupriksruksas and drain into one of two basins. The ones that flow to the west -- toward the Asuran Ocean -- are often ephemeral, only existing during the wet season, and are short and steep; the ones that flow to the east, into the Naguan River, are much longer and less steep once they leave the féja, and have significantly greater flow.

The largest lake in Sarsa is Lake Majaś.

Climate

Western Sarsa, which runs along the Asuran Coast, is mostly moderate and arid (BWh), with slightly arable land along the paths of seasonal and permanent streams. 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. Most people in this region live in the highlands, which are less arid than the coastal lowlands and able to support some semblance of agriculture.

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 the most densely populated region of the country.

Wildlife

Because of the highly varied climate and geography, Sarsa has an extremely high biodiversity with some 20,000 species calling its deserts, mountains and jungles home. It is one of the megadiverse countries.

Politics and Government

Sarsa is a federal state under a constitutional monarchy. The Kijáppa (Great Chief) is the monarch and head of state who wields executive power, and this title is currently held by Kijáppa Jahakó 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; once Parliament has voted on a bill, it is signed by the Great Speaker and codified into law. 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 Balkist Party, and the right wing Sarsan Nationalist Party.
