Urabor (Aldahnten: KLAU HN ÜRABȌȌR Klau Hn Ürabȍȍr [klau hn ʏrabʊːr]), officially the The Kingdom of Urabor, is a country located in western Upper Boroso. Urabor is bordered by Lhavres to the north and the Czucz sea to the west. Urabor is divided by population into twenty administrative counties. Geographically, Urabor has a mountainous interior and costal semi-arid deserts and a small savannah around the Ðravəna bay (Aldahnten: ÐRAVƏNA KȀLO Ðravəna Kȁlo [ðravʔna kælɔ]). Urabor is traditionally a matriarchal society, pushing its women to the forefront of all discussions and decisions.
The name Ürabȍȍr (ÜRABȌȌR) is derived from the word Üra (ÜRA) [ʏra] meaning desert and the word Bȍȍr (BȌȌR) [bʊːr] meaning tribe, as the current Kingdom was established by the desert tribe lead by Naəv Twvanï (NAƏV TWVANÏ) [naʔv twvani].
The earliest known inhabitants of what is the kingdom of Urabor date back to 2700 ± 500 BCE with antiquities found around the Ðravəna bay in the modern-day counties of Flant, Neshim and Lȁrv. As of the last excavation, such antiquities include Pottery fragments, crude hunting tools and the earliest known example of a village within Urabor, with the most intact building being described as a temple. The official response to the findings is hailed by the kingdom as the first temple of the national doctrine, Ɉolbaɉiġa. Though the antiquities department of the University of Üdgänen states that the evidence found suggests that the temple was dedicated to the early Orenahnï pantheon and the history of Ɉolbaɉiġa does not coincide with the temple by nearly 2,700 years, as doctrine states the prophet Sðälp did not receive his first revelation until 832 CE.
The next major point in Uraborian history dates to 1200 ± 200 BCE with the first example of the beginnings of an empire within the Kingdom. Documentation found suggests this to be the Lömeqű empire, which are thought to have ruled over the coast of modern-day Urabor from about 1200 BCE to 100 BCE. Very few examples are left from this time due to rampant looting and destruction after the fall of the empire, with the best-known examples being the extensive road construction up and down the coast and a main roadway from the capital to the interior of modern-day Urabor, as well as the old city quarters of Üdgänen and its Imperial palace, Näthirãl. According to legend the palace was named after the third emperor of Lömeqű and the city after his father, there is no evidence to substantiate these claims as of yet. Little else is known of the empire outside of what is written by scholars during the republic of Neshim. It is thought that the fall of the empire came by means of over-taxation and extreme discrimination of lower-class citizens, which is thought to have rallied the Ralmï cause and stage a government overthrown and an assassination attempt on emperor Ǩalmeǩ III., as based on scholarly writing from 150 BCE. Though these claims may not be entirely accurate, as linguistic surveys have determined that Ǩalmeǩ was was an ethnic slur used by Neshimï and Lȁrvï peoples to denote a person born in Ǩal (purportedly in modern-day Ƚolumə), which was regarded at the time as the birthplace of the first emperor.
The only thing truly known about the Ralmï are of its leaders which are few, and its insistence to use brute force against insurgents and enemies alike. As well as the first true example of systematic genocide within the Kingdom.
Republic of Neshim
Outside of scholarly writings and the first examples of a variant of the Ɉaloren script used for writing Orenahnian languages today, extremely little is known about the republic. The only architectural examples are some of the first central Universities.
The start of a Kingdom
Most of well documented Uraborian history starts just after the War of Independence celebrated on (Navnaiçadǩaa) [navnaɪt͡sadkʲa:] during the Uraborian Calendars
The Beginning of an age
The Most up to date information states that during the war of independence General Çulïalï Ðenőzeƚa (çulïalï ðenőzeƚa) [tsuliali ðenozekʷa] born in 57 CE, stormed the Ǩaǩo Fort and successfully cut off trade and military support to the Neshimï government in Üdgänen, eventually driving the Neshimers to surrender and dissolve the republic. For her bravery and dedication to the Uraborian cause, Çulïalï was crowned the first queen of Urabor in 93 CE, who established the Ðenőzeƚa dynasty. Çulïalï is credited with the construction of the city of Ǩaǩo and expansion of borders to nearly the current borders, outside of the modern counties of Ȝaga, Ɉolbaɉï, Meħa and Afuən. Çulïalï's daughter Daiġa was crowned queen at the age of 17 after the death of Çulïalï in 121 CE at the age of 64. Daiġa, also known as “Daiġa the lazy” served until 133 CE, when she was overthrown by her adopted kav brother Haqma and banished to the “dead lands” (I.E. modern Meħa).
King Haqma (Haqma) “The Lion”, expanded Urabors territory to include Ȝaga and Ɉolbaɉï(Previously known as Ǩarǩan (ǩarǩan) [kʲarkʲan] through multiple battles with native Kavs of the area. Due to internal strife surrounding the treatment of human within Urabor in 186 CE, an assassination attempt was made against king Haqma, though unsuccessful it did ultimately lead to his death due to wound complications in 188 CE. The Ðenőzeƚa dynasty would ultimately end with the coronation of Queen Jevnai (jevnai) [d͡ʒevnaɪ] who was unceremoniously executed in public forum by her husband King Wecanļam Ǩaǩonai (Wecanļam Ǩaǩonai) in 190 CE, who ruled with an iron fist until his death in 252 CE and earning the title "Wencanļam the Cruel", because of the extreme policies he implemented against non-kavs and ramped up the slave trade in Urabor. His son, "Ǩalma the insane" (ǩalma) would take the throne and implemented policies widely called ludicrous, such as the absolute ban cemeteries and the creation of the anti-spirit squadron. He would meet his death in 302 CE and his daughter would be crowned queen and reverse all of her father's and grandfather's policies. His daughter's name has been lost to time, but it is known she died in 367 CE and was buried in an Unmarked tomb in the palace courtyard. her daughter would take over take over in 370 CE and rule until 451 CE and be buried by her mother and officially be decreed post-mortem as "the lost daughter" by her son Lanƚul (Lanƚul) who ruled until 505 CE when he ceremoniously gave the throne to a decorated human soldier by the name of Daiamonï Ɉalanï III.(Daiamonï Ɉalanï), marking the first time since 133 CE a human was the ruler of Urabor. Diamonï was assassinated in 507 CE due to her pro-human policies which enraged the upper class citizens in Üdgänen. Her daughter Felja was coronated the day after and initiated the first mass arrest of Upper Class Kavs in Uraborian history, she ultimately died in 565 CE and was replaced by the only fals to ever rule Urabor, known only as "the Overlord" who's acts against the people started the common held hatred of Fals in Urabor, even in the modern day. He ruled until 636 CE where on his death bed he was brutally executed and his head placed on a spike outside the city gates as a warning to any Fals entering Urabor. After his execution the Throne went unoccupied until 686 CE when the throne was reclaimed by an ancestor of Çulïalï and great-grandmother of the prophet Sðälp (sðälp), Queen Žamakï Ƚanuma (Žamakï Ƚanuma). She was well loved by the people and ruled until the birth of her daughter Hnïk (hnïk) in 700 CE who was coronated at the age of 16 and ruled until 800 CE when her daughter Daiġa took over and giving birth to her only child Ġarǩan (ġarǩan) in 807 CE. She ruled until her death in 825 CE and was succeeded by her brother Haqma II. He decided that Ġarǩan was a threat and had him banished to Meħa and would rule until the end of the Ɉolbaiɉiġa genocide in 846 CE.
The roots of Ɉolbaɉiġa
After Ġarǩan had been banished to Meħa by his uncle Haqma he spent the next 7 years working as a shepherd keeping his head low as the community in Meħa was strongly anti-human and anti-monarchy. It is said that on the 2nd of favkordħn of the Uraborian Solar calendar, Ġarǩan was chasing a mountain lion away from the livestock and back into the mountains, to where he supposedly chased it to a mountain top, claimed to be the top of Mt. Ɉol. Where instead of finding the mountain lion he was faced with a blinding light emanating from a large bowl-shaped stone. It which it instructed him to drink from the bowl to which he ran back to his employer to tell him of the experience. From written sources it is said that Ġarǩan's employer beat him for making up stories and running off, leaving the livestock unattended.
The mountain lion is said to have come back for 13 days with Ġarǩan chasing it off every day but stopping at the foot of the mountain, until on the 14th he chased the lion back to the top of the mountain to finally kill the beast. To which the light commanded Ġarǩan to once again drink from the bowl, instead of running from the voice, Ġarǩan is said to have asked the light why, to which it responded, "to learn the truth of this world". Ġarǩan is said to have contemplated this until just before midnight and then drank the water from the bowl. To which legend holds that he was bestowed the knowledge of the creation of the world, the true god and reason for his life and troubles. In which he fell to knees sobbing and began praying to the light. Where he was instructed to go back home and spread the message of the true light and that the light of the moon would guide his way.
The rise of the Djolism
The message that Ġarǩan began to spread was mostly well received by the peasantry of Meħa, with the promises of equality and the abolition forced labor at the hands of the social elite. Though others chose to remain loyal to their folk religions and went so far as to become informants for the duke and by extension king Haqma. As more from around Meħa began to follow Ġarǩan, suppression of local "freedoms" became highly prevalent, including public preaching. Unthwarted by efforts to silence his god given mission, Ġarǩan continued to publicly preach, and in turn was imprisoned and beat, which only increased the number of followers; with the length that many followers were willing to go to trying to free Ġarǩan or continue to spread the message of Djolism, harsher punishments were implemented, including but not limited to: Public flogging, humiliation by use of pillory, imprisonment, forced hard labor, and torture. Hearing news of this Ġarǩan slipped a message to the masses to vacate the village, and was subsequently released, being deemed not a threat by means of deposal as figurehead of the cult. Ġarǩan immediately left the village of Meħa and fled to the nearby village of Ƚşännen, where many of his followers took refuge. Being free again Ġarǩan sent preachers to other villages in Meħä to continue spreading the news of the faith and what the King was responding with. It is assumed that this continued for at least 4 years before Haqma officially outlawed the practice of Djolism and any related doings thereof.
Even being outlawed, the numbers of Djolists swelled, with the faith eventually spreading to nearby counties, raising the numbers of followers to an estimated 150,000 by 840 CE. Prompting Haqma to raise the practice or assumed practice of Djolism to be punishable by death, with a specific caveat in regards to any women assumed practitioner being classified as the legal property of the state, which led to the mass rape, torture, brutalizing and open murder of thousands of women across the Kingdom.
With the expansion of Djolism throughout the inner counties of Urabor, reaching an estimated population of 250,000 by 843 CE the alarm was again rung in the capital of the assumed threat of the rising cult and the "untold damages and dismantling of uraborian culture besieging the uraborian heartland", Haqma officially decreed the practitioners as "an invading army, with the intent of destroying the very foundations of our glorious civilization" and the sole duty of the Kingdom and her people to "protect our<sic> way of life by any means necessary". As stated by royal documents, Haqma officially sent 1.1 million soldiers to "tame the heartland and exterminate the invading vermin". Shown by the writings of various soldiers, not only was pillaging and rape commonplace on the battlefield, but cannibalism as well, with one specific entry stating " the best part of these vermin, is the breast especially when roasted over an open flame and seasoned with peppers".
Though it is said that many Djolists fought valiantly, within two years, the population of Djolists was reduced to ~ 7,000, with an overall estimated death toll of 370,000 civilians and 12,000 soldiers, including Ġarǩan whom had taken up the name of sðälp, roughly translating to ascension of the people, due to the story of his ascension to the heavens before the battle of Myɉora outside of modern day ɉolbaɉi. With the decisive victory being that of Haqma, and the near complete decimation of the heartlands population, the people of the cities began to starve, as the vast majority of foodstuffs were produced in the heartland and were mostly destroyed by the armies of Haqma, leading to widespread revolts and riots across the Uraborian coast. Eventually ending in the coup of 848 CE, which saw Haqma publicly beheaded by the palace's northern gate, where nine red tiles was placed, which are coated in fresh blood every year on the 14th of Ȕvyiȝőraltrħn (between 20 - 22 Nov.). Even with the succession of Haqma by king Ɉaram in 849 CE the ban of Djolism was not lifted, and was only lifted in 966 CE by Queen Nȁȁnma III and subsequently having Djolism recognized as a minority religion in 1086 CE by King Neşa II of the Neşimi tribe
Urabor in a new age
The Highest point in Urabor is Mt. Ɉol (Aldahnten: MYONMYANA ɈOL Myonmyana Ɉol [mʲɔnmʲana dʲɔl]) at 3,754 meters (12,316 feet). while the bordering counties of the country sits at elevations between 506 and 1263 meters (1,660 and 4,144 feet) and the interior has an average elevation of 1752 meters (5,748 feet) and the coastline having an average elevation of 15.8 meters (52 feet).
The majority of Urabor is a Hot Semi-Arid desert whilst the counties of Flant and Neshim are classified as a Tropical Wet and Dry Savanah.
Urabor as it stands today is ruled under a semi-constitutional monarchy headed by The Queen and Oracle of Ɉolbaɉiġa Bärmey Karmen of the Jäçar clan and her Sister Archduchess and Speaker, Daiġa Þȁlǩov Jäçar. Whose family has been the monarchs since 1106 KÜ and subsequent establishment of the Jäçar dynasty by King Ġaɉar Üdgän Jäçar, great-great-grandson of the prophet Sðälp. And records official dates as such giving Urabor three different calendars. KÜ (KLVA ÜRABȌȌR) Klva Ürabȍȍr [klva ʏrabʊːr]) [A 13-month solar calendar], KĠ (KLVA ĠAɈAR) Klva Ġaɉar [klva ɣadʲar]) [a 12-month lunar calendar] and standard. Being 1928 KÜ, 848 KĠ, and 2021 respectively, at time of writing.
Urabor is split into 20 Counties, each named after their respective capital. All counties are sized by their respective populations with larger populations being in smaller counties and smaller populations in larger counties to accommodate respective businesses and distribution of wealth
Currently Urabor has trading relations with Cananganam, trading natron and sand, for food products and manufactured goods. In turn the propagation of Lunukism in the northern counties of Urabor has been slowly integrated into local traditions and religion of Ɉolbaɉiġa.Though Cananganam has had a presence within Urabor for centuries now, with its missions, only with the Establishment of the Jäçar dynasty in 1106 KÜ has Urabor recognized its state religion and the legitimacy of its missions within the Kingdom.
Urabor requires a 2-year minimum military conscription with 2-year reserve beginning at age 20 for men and a 3-year minimum conscription with a 3-year reserve beginning at age 18 for women. Any military service afterwards is paid and rewarded greatly.
Urabor holds a standing army of 75,000 at times of peace with a reserve of 150,000 - 1.6 million. Any attempt to dodge conscription or draft, outside of medical reasons, is a punishable offense of at minimum 5 years in prison and a 150,000 Ȝülaħa fine.
Though Urabor is sympathetic to immigrants, and willing to accept them, any immigrants wanting citizenship under the age of twenty-six must enter military service for a minimum of 1 year. Whilst long-term non-citizen immigrants must enter military service for a minimum of 2 years if they are under the age of thirty. Whilst their children must enter military service for a minimum of 3 years at age 22 regardless of gender.
Military service in Urabor is seen as a great honor and is a prime reason a 2-year minimum service is a requirement for full citizenship, given the parents of said citizen are also full citizens.
The majority of Uraborians travel by train, though the recent construction of the Trans-Üra freeway has opened a growing Automotive industry within the country. Trains do still dominate the transportation sector holding nearly 85% of all economic traffic within the Kingdom.
The Majority of the energy within the country is produced via means of coal and Natural gas, with a small sector of solar. Though it should be noted that part of the Uraborian energy sector is imported from some "neighboring" countries, mainly in Nagu (I.E. Cananganam) as formal trade relations with other nations and due to its soft isolation within Boroso, has restricted trade. though an article posted by the Uraborian Times as of (TBP), suggests that energy trade deals will be met with favorable representation within Uraborian media and the possibility of military support in the future.
Science and technology
Urabor is relatively new into the Tourism industry, seeing it mostly as large source of income. During the early 1960's the country formal opened to tourism after the abolition of human slavery in 1943. All monarchs after 1964 have sought to build the tourism sector and fund large restoration and construction projects in a bid to make the country seem more appealing to tourists.
While Urabor remains a country of many peoples. The majority of the population is made up of Kavs with a making up 61.5% of the population as of the 2020 census. The population by species is as follows:
Uraborians rarely identify by ethnic group, usually sticking to the ways of their ancestors and abiding by tribal affiliation, the largest of which being the Üdgän and Nesh tribes, who speak Aldahnten and Jasian respectfully
The Majority of Urabor is sparsely populated, with almost the entire population located within six counties: Üdgänen, Flant, Neshim, Ǩaǩo, Yamï and Őhlan respectfully, in descending order of population. With that stated, the urbanization rate within these six counties averages to 81.6% with plans to increase that rate to 85% by 2050, with lucrative plans to increase funding to interior counties which incentivize travel and population expansion.
The official language of the Kingdom is Aldahnten, with its use dominating the political and education spheres. Though many other Orenahnian languages are spoken colloquially in the various counties and city districts of Urabor. They also recognize Kavrinian and Setyalnian on the national level but is to be noted that their use is rarely used in any official documents or news networks.
Education within Urabor is by law a requirement until the age of sixteen for both males and females of any species. whilst higher education is highly promoted after military service and in many cases is subsidized by the Uraborian government. Uraborians tend to be a proud people regarding education, boasting a near 100% literacy rating, though the data shows a literacy rate closer to around 65%
Most citizens on the coasts within the Kingdom receive either partially or fully government sponsored healthcare, while the interior suffers from a lack of available doctors or government agencies and hospitals.
While the government boasts about the open healthcare enrollment, and high numbers of participation, the reality is much grimmer, with the truth being closer to low enrollment outside of the upper echelons of Uraborian society.
The subject of religion in Urabor is inimical at best with regards to any other faith outside of the national doctrine of Ɉolbaɉiġa or the minority religion of Lunukisisu in the north
Though the architecture of Uraborian society is diverse, most homes and legislation building top out at 2 stories and are made up of sandstone and quarried stone, with sporadic use of adobe and wood in Northern counties, particularly by the coast. Interior cities such as Meħa and Afuən provide most of the stone used in construction throughout Urabor, whilst central towns such as ȝaga provide most of the sandstone for the nation. Flant and Neshim provide all adobe and wood construction materials, shipping only down the coast.
The largest structures within Urabor consist of the Grand ġaɉarï citadel, being built nearly entirely of red granite and Marble. And various temples built using marble, granite, Limestone and sandstone.
Mountains: Uraborians have long considered mountains as holy sites for worship, though with the introduction of Djolism the holiness of mountains, especially Mt. DJol was reinvigorated, much of what is understood about the adoration of mountains in Uraborian society have shown that culturally, mountains stand for Dominance, Resilience and Perseverance.
The Moon: From what has been observed, the moon being a central figure in Djolism, likened to the wife of the main deity of Djolism, its represents; Hope, Renewal and Faith.
The Octagram: State sponsored explanations for the octagram typically revolve around redemption, though independent research has concluded that it may also stand for the cardinal directions and Travel.
White: to Uraborians white symbolizes purity
Purple: From what is understood, purple is used to symbolize Royalty, Holiness and Peace.
Black: Unsurprisingly black is thought to symbolize Night and tranquility.
Red: According to Uraborian scholars red is the color of brotherhood.
Gold: From all available sources, gold simple refers to wealth
