The Confederation of Lower Boroso (IPA: /kənfɛdɚˈɹeɪ̯ʃən əv ˈləwɚ bəˈɹəʊ̯səʊ̯/; Confœderatio Borosonis Inferioris, Съвѧзъ Дольнеѥ Бороса; UB: Placeholder, Yaharan: Hwätyungnnäcun ös Doyähärä IPA: /ˈʍɑtʲuŋgn̩nɑs͢ʃun os ˈdojɑɦɑɹɑ/, Hantruzan: God knows, Fáknir: Farkut Eskataristi IPA: /farˈkut ɛskatarisˈti/) is a confederation of nominally independent countries in Lower Boroso, which can be broken into three main political spheres: Upper Borosan, Yaharan, and Fals (Fáknirs). The Upper Borosan and Fals spheres are further broken down into various minor political entities, though in recent years the Upper Borosan entities have become increasingly centralised.
The Confederation formed in the early 18th century out of an Upper Borosan coalition in response to the formation of Yaxarhayut, in roughly the center of the current-day country. The panhandle, being a former breakaway duchy of the Yaharan Empire, joined the country for protection against its imperialist former parent state and the now novel kingdom of Yaxarhayut. This becomes a confederation of the two nations. The Confederation gains influence over the span of several decades from new groups such as the Hantruzans who denounce their Yaxarhayutan overlords and defect to the Confederation after a war with Yaxarhayut, which weakens the northern territorial integrity of Yaxarhayut.
The Fáknir kosels of the Akralst river join as equal members following dissatisfaction with the unification of the Fals Empire. The period after the 1850s is marked with more and more territories breaking away from Yaxarhayut to join the Confederation after Heoroma declares its independence. Following a rather authoritarian period during the Great Ekuosian War-era, wherein the Confederation sides with the Helsonian Union against the Fals Empire, and loses some northern territory to the Empire after the conclusion of the war, political instability in some member states of the country leads to a crackdown on their administrations, creating ever increasing internal turmoil.
At the turn of the millennium, Fáknir member states begin to openly oppose the central government. As the 2017-2019 Fáknirland Civil War begins, the Fáknir states begin to defect. Unsuccessful reintegration efforts lead to withdrawal of Confederate troops. As Fáknir independence begins to gain traction, the Fáknir states secede formally. Already dealing with the chaos in the Hantruzan areas and panhandle, the Confederation abandons its efforts on reintegrating its Fáknir territories throws its and doubles down on trying to assimilate everyone else. Further details TBD.

The Confederation of Lower Boroso initially formed in 1683 when a group of Lower Upper Borosan-speaking kingdoms formed the [insert placename] Confederation as a defensive pact against the Kingdom of Yaxarhayut, whose armies had been conquering nearby polities as part of an effort to reclaim the former northern territories of the Empire of Yahara. This defensive pact soon developed a council to elect a central leader, as well as make confederation-wide decisions. With the addition of the Duchy of Fongosgwanlatvurg and several Fáknir polities, the Confederation became known as the Confederation of Lower Boroso, and added two more councils, one for the Yaharans, and another for the Fáknir, alongside a third council which sat above all three of the ethnic councils to act as a central government for them.
The Fáknir province's joining of the Confederation in 1850 was one that came quite unforeseen. Governor of Akralst province Name Nameson proposed the merger to confederate officials in secret only weeks in advance. With the Fáknir-Ikolinian War in full swing and the Fáknir Empire quickly losing ground, it was becoming clearer by the day that they would come out on the losing side. Nameson proposed for the province to be annexed peacefully by the Confederation, pointing to the fact that the likely alternative would be that of the province falling into Ikolinian hands, a strategically highly unfavourable situation for the Confederation. In turn, as a member of the Confederation they could be self-governing within an overarching democratic framework, and its inhabitants would retain individual freedoms that had under the Fáknir Empire, but would most likely not as subjects of the Ikolinian Kingdom. The agreement was made in August 1850 with unanimous support from Akralst officials, and within a week confederate troops were welcomed with full cooperation from local Fáknir militants. The move proved successful when Ikolinian soldiers reached the border 40 days later, but did not not make any attempts to cross over into the newly confederate Akralst province. In fact, the Ikolinians thanked the Confederation for "helping" them in taking out the Fáknir threat. Still, the Confederation ramped up its military presence in the province, which would remain until several years after the Ikolinian victory over the Fáknir Empire.
Nameson and the Confederation later agreed that the Fáknir province would donate a percentage of its militia to the confederate military, as contribution for joining.
