Shelhania (Native language: Śeŕharnavkín, IPA: /ʃeɹχaɾnavkɪn/), officially the Democratic Republic of the Shelhan Union, also sometimes misnamed the Shelhan Union, is a country located on the east coast of the South Baredina region, bordered by Yaina at the west and Sjuu at the south, with the Saru Sea at the east. It covers an area of approximately 816,080.21 square kilometers (315,090.33 square miles), has a warm tropical climate and is mostly flat, with the highest point being at around 1500 meters above sea level. The population of almost 25 million people is highly diverse, with 4 main native ethnic groups and various other groups as immigrants, the largest being the Kylmi and the Hariunics. Its capital city is Ankorau city, where most governmental processes are handled, and its largest city is Ashnin city, with a population of approximately 8.5 million people, a few thousands more than Ankorau. It is highly known for its pacifist views, immigration policies, and social culture. It is a union of the territories that were part of the old Baronician Kingdom and surrounding territories. Shelhania runs the Shelhan Union, a political and economic union consisting of Shelhania, Ikym, Ynray and Lomesuvia, the latter three wrongfully perceived to be part of Shelhania since Shelhania politically represents them. The Shelhan Union is automatically part of the Alcian Union, and various political entities inside and outside of Shelhania question the necessity of its existence outside of historical reasons, with various presidential candidates proposing the removal of it, and forcing territories not part of both the country and the union to decide whether the area stays as Shelhania or as an independent country.
Shelhania is very developed, with a very high HDI of 0.890. It is also the 3rd most equal-paying country, with a Gini coefficient of 0.18.
