Kwai is of native Ngerupic origin, meaning 'country', and tracing back to Wa Ñi *kway-ni. Kwan is an endonym possibly related to the Ngerupic root for 'sun', *kwo-ni.
Qonklaks historically was a very war-mongering people. Having just achieved Bronze Age status 200 years prior, they’ve managed to vassalize neighbouring cultures within 20 years of their formation of the first Qonklese dynasty.
In 1772 BCE, the first evidence of a Qonklese organized military was found in modern day X. The army was used to fight in X.
In the events of the Warring States Period, according to legend, the Qonklese people made first contact with a Xynden in 1204 BCE. This was potentially the first time Xynden “city tree” culture has spread from the Xynden islands.
During the next 1000 years, Qonklaks established first contact with their northern Qgamic neighbours, spreading their Qonklese Kweonzia, a form of logographic writing, to them. making them the second literate civilization that has not been vassalized by Qonklaks in Soltenna.
58 CE, Letsatia conquers the Lugid dynasty of Altha in a colonial campaign. Qonklaks decides to launch an attack to defend themselves against the Letsatian threat. However, these attacks bled the National Treasury dry, and Qonklaks fractured into five warring states in a period known as the Five Kingdom Land Hoard.
During the Republican Revolutions in 1903, Officials decided to reintroduce Qonklese Logograms into daily use. This was further reinforced by the fascist dictator Ci Dûw, as he made learning Qonklese Logograms mandatory. After the downfall of the Republic, the Kuulist QonCom Party sought to remove the logograms completely, but they decided to keep it, as many have already fully converted to the script.
On September 13th, 2005, five days after the downfall of the Helsonian Union, the QonCom Party, for the first time, allowed democratic elections, and allowed opposing political factions into the legislature by rewriting the People's Constitution. In 2009, the Republican Party won the majority of the seats in the National People's Assembly, and QonCom relinquished power through peaceful means. However, due to a corruption scandal uncovered by the independent Qonklese Anti-Corruption Agency, the Party was removed from the government, and was barred from re-entering elections the following term. Support for the QonCom Party sky-rocketed as Chairman Qō Daśâw vowed to remove corruption from Qonklese politics. In 2013, the QonCom Party won 1,339 of the 2000 seats in the National People's Assembly. In 2017, QonCom won only 984 of the 2000 seats in the National People's Assembly, requiring them to co-operate with the Qonklese Union Party and the Qonklese Imperial Party just to make the 1000 seats mark.
On October 12, General Mâw Khō of the Qonklese Peacekeeping force initiated a coup against the rule QonCom Party. In just two days, the General managed to control the entire eastern regions of Qonklaks, with remaining QonCom members fleeing to the east. Together, they formed the Federal Army. Shortly after retaking North Qonklaks, the General was found dead in a garbage chute with three irregularly sized holes in his abdomen. With no standing orders, the QPKF could only stand by as the Federal Army retook Jikring. President Rā-rûw assumed power as there was no immediate successor to the General.
Qonklaks is mostly arid and warm in the lowlands, and more humid and cool in the highlands.
Qonklaks possesses three Special Administrative Regions:
Qonklaks is in the Soltennan Council comprising of more than X Soltennan states. Today, it has friendly relations with most Sahar nations, except for a few outliers.
Today, Qonklaks provides security to its people and its allies with the Qonklese Peacekeeping Forces, with over 450000 active personnel and 3 million in reserve.
Science and technology
The official language of Qonklaks is Standard Qonklese. However there are a great many other varieties of Qonklese such as West Kwang. In the south and southwest, there are many minority languages, as well as Ndxiixun, which is the primary language of Quaxin Xun.
The people of Qonklaks is slowly becoming more and more atheistic, and is pushing religion away from their daily lives. However, government efforts to re-introduce traditional Qonklese Xenhuism as a religion have been proven quite successful.
Qonklese cuisine relies heavily on noodles, flatbread, and steamed corn paste for staples, and is typically quite spicy, with abundant use of chili oil and numbing pepper. Being a mainly coastal country, seafood is quite prominent.
