Amaia

Etymology

Amaia

History

Geography

Amaia is characterized by vast flat plains separated by abrupt, steep mountain ranges.

Geology

Amaia is mostly of moderate to old age geologically, with rich mineral and coal deposits.

Climate

The climate is continental verging on semiarid throughout, except for a Mediterranean climate on the southern coast. In the mountains, it is alpine and quite cold.

Biodiversity

Politics

Government

An ostensible democracy actually controlled by the lobbyists of the tech industry. Amaia's democracy index is quite low. However, many are proud of their democracy.

Administrative divisions

Amaia is divided into several provinces and one area directly controlled by the central government.

Foreign relations

Amaia, Balakia, Kaatkukia, and Melqui are particularly close. Attempts at diplomacy with Zwazwamia have been strained.

Military

Economy

Amaia's economy is almost solely dependent on information technology, with heavy manufacturing losing ground. The wine industry is locally important, as is tourism from Ketsin's ski resorts and Lake Jeed. Also, Amaia does engage in mining.

Transport

Transport in Amaia is almost solely by car. Agapa does have some cable cars.

Energy

About 60% of Amaia's energy comes from coal burning, and the remainder is from hydroelectric plants in western Amaia, especially the controversial Bazwadymy Dam.

Science and technology

Amaia's software industry is very developed.

Tourism

Ski resorts and such are found near scenic Lake Jeed in the northeast.

Demographics

Ethnic groups

Amaia is almost entirely Amaian, with Manatak people and Voont people the most prominent minorities. The Manatak are almost completely assimilated, with the last relic being their matrilineal surnames, but the Voonts are systematically discriminated against and find it difficult to integrate into society due to prejudice.

Urbanisation

Amaia is about 90% urbanized.

Language

Amaian is a variety of the Amaian-Zwazwan language. The Ziimen languages are almost extinct, as are the Voontic languages.

Education

Work and occupational training constitute most of the Amaian educational system. It is very competitive and only the top 10% of computer science students are guaranteed employment in the industry.

Healthcare

Amaia's healthcare system lags behind that of other developed countries.

Religion

In stark contrast to its neighbors, Amaia is largely secular, with very little religion. This is partially because of the Zwazwan-Amaian schism of the 1600s, where the Zwazwan Pashaist religion that considered Ama people the undercaste was thrown off by the Amaian people.
