Veridia (Veridian: Vijrta [ˈvɪjr.ta]), officially the Veridian Republic, is a country located in Ekuosia. It shares land borders with Rosland and Utol to the west, and Azerin to the south. While most of Veridia is located on a peninsula that reaches into the Parshita Sea, it owns an exclave (colloquially known as West Veridia) which, despite being governed by Veridia, has its sovereignty over it contested by Rosland. The capital and largest city is Panemi.
The origins of the modern Veridian identity can be traced back to the collapse of East Letsatia and beginning of the Four Kingdoms period, which were all conquered by Terminia. Following the ensuing independence struggle, Veridia emerged as a singular political entity under a new dynasty, which embarked upon a violent campaign of cultural unification. Following the end of the monarchy, Veridia entered a period of political uncertainty and economic and social turmoil which led to the rise of a fascist dictatorship in 1940 under Jol Giradz, whose newfound expansionist outlook lead to the start of the Great Ekuosian War. Following the assassination of Giradz and the end of the war in 1951, Veridia transitioned to a democratic system which has survived to the present day.
