Xhodiar (/ˈxəʊdiɑr/, Xhorial: Қыоӆгыс, tr. Qioľgis /qʼs̩ʔoǁʱɣ̍ʃ/), officially the Holy Empire of Xhodiar, is a unitary state located in southern Baredina. It borders Yhael and Redia to the north, Yaina to the north-east, Sjuu to the east and Nolcik to the south. The state is governed by the Holy ‎Royal Family who exercise jurisdiction over 20 provinces and one capital province, where the capital city, ‎Lelig, is located. The country has 56 million inhabitants, primarily centred in the northern third of the ‎country, along the coast and rivers. ‎

Xhodiar emerged as one of the earliest civilisations in Baredina. For millennia, the Ancient Xhovian ‎Empire was ruled by non-hereditary monarchies who were regarded as important spiritual leaders. The ‎rulers are known as Hykiri, natively Hayqhiwhi, and continue to be the heads of state in Xhodiar and the state ‎religion, Xhiuism, to this day.‎

Expansion to the west caused the empire to fracture into numerous smaller states. After the northern ‎nation alliance of 750, Xhodiar entered a period of semi-isolation, only keeping contact with nearby ‎Xhovian nations. This isolation was strictly maintained for only a few decades after which contact with more distant nations slowly began again. The Xhovian states in the region continued to war sporadically ‎until the Holy Unification of 1917 when the armies of the Holy Royal Family of inner Xhodiar took ‎the southern-most regions of the nation.‎

Xhodiar is a founder state of both the Alcian Union and the Xhovian Cultural Union. ‎

Military

The Xhovian military, Chęnh, is organised into four subdivisions: Army, Military Police ‎and Special Forces, Gghej; Navy and Coast Guard, Thùhe; Air Force, Nǫyel, and the Monitoring Division, Thák . ‎In 2015, military spending was estimated at 9.4% of the country’s GDP. The military is normally commanded by the Hykiri unless they ‎have appointed a Chief of the Defence Section. The Hykiri is currently the head of the ‎military.‎

As of mid-2015, an estimated 3.7 million people were employed full-time by the military. All adult ‎citizens have had military training, so if necessary, the entire adult population could be ‎conscripted. The current conscription model requires for citizens to begin military training between the ages of 15 ‎and 24 and continue serving between 2 and 10 years depending on their assigned profession.‎

Economy

Transport

Xhodiar’s road network is amongst the sparsest in Baredina. As most citizens are prohibited from ‎owning their own motorised vehicles, many areas do not have roads suitable for cars or ‎motorbikes. Areas which do have roads don’t have speed limits. Each settlement has an individual network of trams and is connected to the national, ‎polycentric network of high-speed trains. ‎

Xhodiar has a number of airports, most of which only accept cargo flights. The airport in the ‎capital city of Lelig is able to accept both cargo and passengers but tourism is a very small ‎industry in Xhodiar.‎

Sport

Xhovians are very passionate about their sport but rarely partake in international competitions. ‎Foreign sports are largely unknown in Xhodiar, some, such as tennis, even being banned. There ‎are three television stations dedicated to the sports of Hyklan, Khatresht, and Golhung (natively ‎‎Hikhą, Whatheìt, and Gosuŋ) all of which are traditional Xhovian sports.‎

Hyklan is a score-based, team game which can be played with any number of teams of any size, ‎as long as all the teams are all the same size. National matches are usually played with 70 players ‎per team and 3-6 teams. A set of usually 100 spherical balls, 25cm in diameter, placed in a large ‎hole in the centre of the playing field. To score a team must transport as many of these balls as ‎possible into their own nets. The team with the most points at the end of a match wins. This game ‎can be quite dangerous as rules of conduct are very unrestrictive, serious injuries and even death ‎are not infrequent.‎
