Tisnoij, officially the Federal Republic of Tisnoij, or FR Tisnoij for short to avoid confusion with the region of the same name, was a country within the Tisnoij region of Vaniua and Soltenna throughout the latter half of the 20th Century. The nation had its foundations in the aftermath of the Great Ekuosian War, bordered by Ulvam and Imoztar to the east and Asota to the west. Four constituent republics made up the Federal Republic; Aifugon, Ekvibron, Temedzen and Tsuinnia. The capital of the state was traditionally Uğēnama, though briefly it switched to Esfason from 1991 to 1995, before the two cities essentially became co-capitals from 1995 to 1997, and once the state had all but split apart, Uğēnama became the de facto sole capital once again.
The state originated in 1952, as a merger of various states within the region of Tisnoij that wished to unify under a federal republic for mutual defence and economic benefit. It became the first state to ever control all of Tisnoij simultaneously, and unite the disparate Tisnoijan people, including all major people groups of the Tispoda. Expanding industry and development, the state soon began to lead the way in production and became an economic powerhouse for a few years. However, it was not to last, as in 1983, the economy began to take a sharp downturn. The economic crisis led to an increase in ethnic nationalism, with the two largest republics, Temedzen and Aifugon, becoming locked in a political power struggle.
After a period of heavy political instability in the late 1980s and the 1990s, the Federal Republic essentially split into two entities in 1995; a government based in Esfason, which was considered by most to be the legitimate government of Tisnoij, and a splinter government in Uğēnama. In 1997, the disparate republics of Tisnoij began the process of dissolving the Federal Republic, the first state to leave being Tsuinnia, followed closely by Ekvibron, then Aifugon. Temedzen retained the name and style of the Federal Republic until 2001, claiming themselves to be the legitimate successors of the Federal Republic, and fighting the other three former republics in the Tisnoijan Wars. The Treaty of Ficyuci saw the end of such lofty claims, and the Federal Republic of Tisnoij was officially disbanded on 10 August 2001.
The name Tisnoij, from the Old Tizocin tīsnoij, is a compound word comprising the words tīs, meaning 'settler', and noij, meaning 'homeland'. Thus, a translation of the name would be 'homeland of the settlers'. This is in reference to the fact that the Tispodan people, themselves a subset of the Vaniuan people, crossed the --MOUNTAIN RANGE-- range, leaving the main group of Vaniuans, and developing some marked distinctions in the language, culture and traditions of the subsequent mountainous people. At the very inception of the Federal Republic's history, from 1952 to 1956, the name of the nation was somewhat in question, with various ideas of names to contrast with the regional name of Tisnoij suggested, such as Aifleinnaxo, roughly translating to 'mountain chain nations'. However, even prior to its official adoption, the name 'Tisnoij' became used for the unified entity, and as such, that was very soon chosen as the official name of the state. During the final years of the nation, from 1995 to 1997, the state had essentially split into two entities, referred to by most historians as the Federal Republic of Tisnoij (Esfason) and the Federal Republic of Tisnoij (Uğēnama), named for the capitals of both competing governments. However, these nations were not officially separate, and both claimed the identity of the older Federal Republic as their own inheritance. After the dissolution of the Esfason government, the entity of Tisnoij (Uğēnama) became the sole claimant to the legacy of the Federal Republic, and remained officially entitled as the same until 2001, when that state transitioned into the Federal Republic of Temedzen.
Due to the length of the name, and the sometimes confusing homonymy between the Federal Republic and the region of Tisnoij, the abbreviations of FR Tisnoij, or even FRT are sometimes used to refer to the nation in short-form.
