The Povan Union (IPA: //, Povan: Country, IPA: //), informally referred to as Povania (IPA: //, Povan: Povaso, IPA: //) is a confederation located in Lower Ekuosia on the continent of Baredina. It is bordered by Nevira to the east and south, and by Tabiqa to the northwest.

Etymology

The adjective "Povan" refers to the Povan Valley, an area in the eastern part of the country that drains into the Povi River, the largest river contained entirely within Povania.

History

Human history of the Povan region, also known as Povania, dates back to hundreds of thousands of years ago, when humans first migrated south from Tabiqa.

Agriculture is thought to have spread to the Povi Valley in 7000 BCE, with permanent settlements being founded along riverbanks as early as 5000 BCE. Exactly which civilizations existed in the area remain under dispute, but scientific consensus is that by 3000 BCE the confluence of the Ekuos and the Povi rivers had become the focal point of the Pela Pola civilization. Its population consisted primarily of Dekanian peoples, who had migrated to the region after being displaced from Nevira in about 3200 BCE. The Pela Pola civilization collapsed in 2500 BCE for reasons unknown.

The Adzo-Neviric group settled in Povania no later than 2200 BCE, thought to be speaking the Proto-Adzo-Neviran language. This group is believed to be the ancestors of the current Adzamasi ethnic group. They had largely disappeared after only 200 years, being replaced by Tomilians from the Ekuos Delta.

Politics

Government

The Povan Union is a republic with a unique tricameral system on the federal level. The head of state is the Prime Minister.

There are four major political parties in the Povan Union, each with a provincial affiliate party in every province. These parties are the Progressive Party (a communitarian pro-regulation party), the Liberal Party (a left-wing republican party), the Free People's Alliance (a libertarian capitalist party), and the Federation Party (a conservative reactionary party). There also exist parties advocating for minority rights, such as Povan Baredan parties, and single-issue groups.

The current government of the Povan Union is led by a Liberal-Free People's coalition, with the Prime Minister being a member of the Liberal Party.

Administrative divisions

The Povan Union is a confederation of fourteen provinces, each of which elects its own parliament and is highly autonomous. Some provinces have historically been independent nations, while others were created during the early days of the Povan Union through the combination and division of smaller states.

Education

Each province maintains its own education curriculum, however all provinces have mandatory education for a minimum of 11 years. All but the most rural areas typically have two or more school boards with jurisdiction over the same area. Over 98% of Povan citizens have the option to enroll their children in a provincially-funded public school or a private school with tuition. In some cities, there may be a third board for education in the Neviran language, or even a fourth board exclusively to prepare students for post-secondary education.

Faith-based education, in which the curriculum is supplemented with Zourongiri teachings and doctrine, was formerly common throughout much of the Povan Union until it was outlawed in 2000.

Healthcare

The Povan Union has a mixed public-private healthcare system. Some provinces have universal healthcare, others have subsidies on common procedures and medications, while still others have largely private healthcare.

Religion

More than 75% of Povan citizens are adherents of the Zourongarq faith, about half of them belonging to the Manoist branch. Other denominations found in the Povan Union include Nevirism, Adzamism, and many other minor branches.

Most other Povans are irreligious or of the Tanhunga faith.
