Khezan's name comes from Khezian Qeziẓ tar, meaning roughly "Mover's Country" to reflect on the big hauling industry here.
The Khezian area had historically been under control of the Ohanian Empire, until Qasam's kingdom conquered it in 544. Come 592 upon the death of Qasam, the Khezian lands are given to one of his grandsons, Ṣeviêje 1 of Khezan. Ṣeviêje would go on to establish the Seviyejid Dynasty which would rule over Khezan until the Tamir Khanate annexed the lands in the 900s CE. With the Tamir Khanate came substantial Kalkali influence ranging from loanwords to cultural practices. But Tamir rule would be brief for in 1192, Kai ha Sinoz would liberate the Khezid once more. And the lands would stay under Kayid rule until the Avicisid Dynasty in Vosan conquered the lands to bring Vosan to its maximum extent in history. It would stay under Vos rule until an incursion from Taayim ha Seadiz in 1564 brought Khezids independence yet again. The Taayimids would continue to rule Khezan until 1927 where power was transitioned to Ader Canez and the Sannist Party. Those guys would rule until 1991 when Khezan transitioned into a republic after the death of the last guy, Avi Bala. I really don't know how I can make this flow.
According to the Khezian Constitution, the country is a federation and a presidential republic. The current reigning president is Atava Ceirzireiẓ Az, who came into power circa 2017 (1565 YE). In the republic, there is a separation of powers, with power split among the three branches of government: legislative, executive, and judicial.
The Legislative branch is represented by the two federal congresses, the Popular Congress and the State Congress. The Popular Congress, otherwise known as the Left Congress, for the side of the legislative building the congress resides in, or the Lower Congress, is the congress in which bills go into before passing to the State Congress. As per the Constitution, there shall be no more than 185 representatives within the Popular Congress, with number of representatives per province being proportional to their population, and the three federal cities all having three representatives each, who may also count towards their province's representative number. Currently, the province of Ha Ojinar has 21 representatives, including the ones standing for Osgim. Representatives in the Popular Congress are elected every 3 Sayanic years, and may serve for four 3-year terms. The State Congress, also known as the Right Congress or the Upper Congress, is the congress that bills, had they been approved by the Popular Congress, go into before being passed onto the Head Legislator. There are 50 representatives in this congress, with each pair representing each of the provinces as well as the federal cities. Representatives in the State Congress are elected every 6 Sayanic years, and may serve for two 6-year terms. Both congresses are further represented by the Head Legislator, a person that for the most part handles domestic affairs in general. They, along with the President, are responsible for making bills into laws or vetoing them, and are considered the "Little President (Khezian: Besketizir [be:skɪtɪzɪs])" as they can usurp presidency in the situation when the current president dies in office before their term is over, either by assassination or otherwise. A Head Legislator may serve upwards of three terms of 5 Sayanic years each. Currently, the Head Legislator is Vodam Doẓidoveẓ Nira.
The Executive branch is represented by the President, who approves/vetoes laws and serves as the head diplomat for Khezan. Just like the Head Legislator, the President may serve for three 5-year terms. Not only can the President approve laws or be a diplomat, they are in charge of the Khezian military as well, and so are expected to serve as a general in the army during wartime, and therefore presidential candidates with military experience are more favored in election times. Also part of the Executive Branch is the President's Council, a group of people appointed by the President that act to advise him when necessary. These people usually serve for however long as their president is in office, however they may retire at any point they choose.
The Judicial branch is represented by the High Court, composed of 5 Judges, that interprets constitutional law and are responsible for updating the Constitution.
Khezan is divided into 22 provinces and 3 federal cities, each having 2 representatives in the State Congress and variable representatives in the Popular Congress.

Science and technology
By most standards, Khezian is a fairly homogeneous country, with around 90% of the country calling themselves ethnically Khezid. In regards to the minorities, ethnic Vos are reported to make up 6%, Lenezi peoples follow them up, being three percent of the population, and the remaining percent consist of Thelemic peoples, Bashen, and the X in the northeast.
According to the Khezian Constitution, the one official language of the country is Khezian, and the Osgimi dialect of the language is the one used for international affairs and business. As of the latest census in 2020, it is reported that there are about 40 million speakers of the language as a mother tongue, and a significant deal of the rest have Khezian as at least a second language. Other languages commonly spoken in the country are Siyan, spoken in the north by about 2 million around the provinces of Baumar, Uritazir, and Haṣaran, and in the latter two, Siyan is a co-official language to Khezian. Additionally, Vosan has a significant deal of speakers, numbering up to at least 2 million, located in the west in the provinces of Segevazan, Urusan, and East Bozan, where it is the most prevalent, and is a co-official language to Khezian. Another language of significant status would be X, located around the southwest of Dorvan, and spoken by some 20,000 people.
Khezan's people follow the religion of Zarasaism, specifically the denomination adhered to most in Western Vaniu, Qasamism, distinguished from eastern denominations by its acceptance of some practices that are deemed forbidden in the east.
