Yakormonyo or Monyo (Asakan: Iakoronio [IPA]: [ˌjakɘˈɾɘnjɘ]), officially the Federal Kingdom of Yakormonyo, is a country located around the southwest coast of Boroso. It is bordered in the north by the Fals Empire, in the south by Yahara, and in the east by the Confederation of Lower Boroso. The territory of Yakormonyo stretches from the Bay of Araca in the north to the Akralst River in the south, with a small stretch of land extending to the Bay of Celebrezstuverg. Most of this large expanse is covered in vast forests, especially in the inland regions. With 12 million Kavrinh inhabitants scattered throughout the nation's 25 prefectures, it is the third most populous country in Lower Boroso and the most populous country south of the Fals nations. Monyo's capital and largest city is Otofu; other major urban areas include Araca, Terosi and Asxata.
The name Iakoronio derives itself from the Asxatan word coirons "those lands", which originally pertained to the Asakan tribes across the Bay of Toxkaxa. Later on, when it became a duchy of the Yaharan Empire it was called "Yäkormonyo". The demonym plural form is Iakoroni, while the adjective form is Koronió.
Prehistory (before 9th century)
The Kavrinh of Yakormonyo originated in the Lake Qeerles area, south of nowaday Lhavres, in the then-existing Qlheemaš confederation. This confederation consisted of three tribes: the Ëkaam (Kamikia), Ësaklaat (Sarakia) and Ässëšaat (Asxakia). According to the Epic of Sotoyongun this tribe expanded as it went south, splitting as it reached the . By the late 9th century they stopped going south and settled in various places in nowadays Yakormonyo.

Warring States Period (10th-12th century)
Every settlement was called a totu; according to the Historical Records of Yakormonyo there were around one hundred ninety totus. Eventually these totus started to unite into a larger state called a paitotu. The Monyo Calendar starts on the formation of the Oti and Onívean paitotus in the spring equinox of 1125. By 1170, there were twenty-six paitotus. These paitotus were always at war with each other, aiming to conquer the entire land. This continued until the Sípiman Prophesy was proclaimed by the great prophet Sotoyongun in 1175, stating that a stronger nation is destined to unite the entire Yakormonyo. This began the bloody Union Era.
Early Unions (12th-13th century)
In the years 1175 to 1182, the paitotu of Pihís, believing it to be the prophesized nation to unite Yakormonyo, invaded and annexed the paitotus of central Yakormonyo. The Union of Píhsípiman, led by Duke Nusizin, was a harsh union which used the capital punishment regularly. In 1209 the union collapsed and got conquered by the northern Rípyotans four years later. The Rípyosípiman Union encompassed most of the previous union (except for Oníve, who managed to keep their sovereignty), along with more territory in the north and south. Duke Kírí, the first ruler of Rípyota was a kind ruler, and started the Golden Age of Art in Yakormonyo, introducing a dichromatic style of painting. The alphabet got reformed into a more artistic one, which was the basis of the current alphabet. In 1237, Duke Kírí died of an unknown disease and was replaced by Duke Sikia-Tatní. This ruler focused more on literature and his reign became known as the Golden Age of Literature in Yakormonyo, with several philosophers and authors appearing like Otomusí, Kaupi-Rofan, and Yakorka.
In 1252 the growing paitotu of Otofu under Duke Tufyahua, after conquering most of Northern Yakormonyo, began an invasion of the Rípyotan Union and Ítona. Around the same time, the paitotus of Pihís, Kaupi, and Toxosapi declared independence and assisted in the invasion of Rípyota. In 1253 the capital, Usotovu was captured and the nation surrendered, and the Otofsípiman Union inherited the Sípiman Prophesy. This union focused on welfare of the people, and regions had greater autonomy. Every person was equal, and criminals were dealt with accordingly. In 1269, Duke Sotoyongun-Mussípiman succeded the throne. Capital punishment was outlawed and the tradition of 'tikutatu', or leaving the hometown to atone for serious crimes, began.
Three Kingdoms (early 14th century)
In 1287 Ítona under Duke Xosapoma launched an attack in order to regain its capital from Otofu. The attack succeded, and Ítona went on to conquer the rest of Otofu, with help from the pitotu of Kaupimusí, with Kanyoto Island surrendering in 1289. The three great powers at the time, Kaupimussí, Pehioníve, and Ítona, then signed the Treaty of Kanyoto, beginning the Three Kingdoms Era. The Ítonsípiman Union, spread from northern Hemh to southern Kanyoto, started trades with Cananganam, and under Duke Timan, explored southward in order to mine valuable resources. This union prospered, but cared less about outer regions, and constantly discriminated the northern Fomatans. This urged Fomata to declare independence in 1326. The Kaupimussípiman Union under Duchess Kasatra-Kírí focused more on expansion, and were the first to colonize the Tumonan peninsula. Afan declared independence in 1319, but eventually was reconquered in 1322. The Pehionívesípiman Union, spread from northern Aisha to southern Xopeha, was nicer to its citizens, and this period is considered the Golden Age of Southern Yakormonyo, with the great dukes, Zezomao, Yaohí-Himí, and Zesekí. This was also the time Pehan and Onívean underwent a language reform which regularized most irregulars.
Late Unions ( 14-15th century)
On October 1341, Ítona under Duke Toxosovu declared war on Kaupimussí, which began the Three Kingdoms War. It ended in 1343 with the Treaty of Vukoto, resulting in the dismantling of Ítona and the separation of Pehioníve Union, leaving Kaupimussí as the major power at the time. Kaupimussí, under Duke Ií-Samijhimí, largely stopped expansion along the Xoxi River, now focusing on developing its agriculture and cities.
In 1367, Afokia and Onívea declared war on Pihís. Kaupimussí subsequently declared war on Afokia. Afokia's growing military power, along with Onívea's help and Tumona's declaration of independence, eventually overcame both Pihís and Kaupimussí. The Afokisípiman Union was more fierce and the its autonomous regions of were given less freedom. Because of this Pihís, lead by Jimisami, and Mussí, led by Kírí-Rofan, declared independence in 1385, supported by Tumona. This lead to the Afokia-Tumonan War, which ended in 1393 with the surrender of Afokia. The Treaty of Mussí gave Tumona the territories of Afan and Harahua, while Pihís and Mussí gained independence as the Jimissípiman Union. This left Otofu and the new Tumonsípiman Union as the major powers at the time.
In 1402 Ítona invaded the Kaman Free State and Otofu, quickly gaining control of Yangfazí and Pipa. Tumona intervened in 1407, and Ítona surrendered the next month. The Treaty of Pipa was signed, giving Kama more territory and creating a buffer state between Otofu and Ítona. Afan was given independence in 1413 as thanks for help in the war. The kingdoms were then stable, save for the independence of Rípyota and Notumon. However, tensions were high throughout the land.
Around the mid-16th century, the Pekhahuas were conquered by the Empire of Yahara, creating the semi-autonomous Duchy of Sígüpëxü. A few years later, the duchy started to expand north and the Ottos , along with southern Voma were annexed and became the Duchy of Ësnvøërvërg. Northern Voma meanwhile was killed with a local plague in the 1540’s, whose land eventually became repopulated by the Fals Empire.
Independence from Yahara
By the early 16th century, suppression of the Monyos’ culture caused independence movements to arise. It started in 1501 with the Jemy Revolt, led by Jemehua Mussipemon, followed by the 1503 Ävon Revolt, the 1504 Vommä Revolt and and the 1507 Peccy Revolt. It was followed by a few years of peace from 1508 to 1510, but in 1511, the murder of Jemehua Mussipemon caused more individuals to revolt. In 1512, the Duchy of Vommä declared their independence, but their leader, Vomahua Ava was assassinated and the rebellious state capitulated. The revolts continued until the Empire’s collapse in 1515, when the Far Northern Duchies of Sígüpëxü and Ësnvøërvërg successfully declared their independence and were able to fight against several attempts by the Duchy of Celebrezstuerg to conquer them. The language was brought back, and the Duchies were renamed to Peccy and Otofu respectively. This nation then started trades with neighboring duchies, especially the Duchy of Hakalon. Through the Treaty of Jemesami in 1707, the two duchies were united in a personal union, although it was only made official through the Treaty of Oni in 1761, creating the United Duchies of Peccy-Otofu (UDPO).
Throughout the early 20th century, Kúúlist ideologies have emerged. The Yakormonyo Kúúlist Forces then was formed under the leadership of Tumahua Korri-Şopomo. In 1916, the nation underwent a civil war and government was overthrown the next year, creating the Union of Kúúlist Monyo Duchies (UKMD) led by Tanma Makumari. This nation was mostly in isolation, except for a close relationship with Heoroma, whom it supplied with weaponry during the Heoroman War of Independence and the Ekuosian War. Tanma's dictatorial and oppressive regime caused economic and civil problems become commonplace. On November 27th of 1946, Maiheroa was overthrown and Kúúlism collapsed in Monyo. The nation then became a Monarchy, led by King Imakan Manakamo, however Kúúlist ideals are still prevailing and the Monarch is almost completely ceremonial.
The highest point is Mount Ianpasno, measuring up to 3,359 meters (11,019 ft) above sea level and located in the town of the same name in Toxkaxa Prefecture. The longest river is the Akralst River, which travels through several countries in Lower Boroso. The longest river completely in Yakormonyo is the Sirion River, which also has the largest river basin as it drains most of the Asakan Valley.
The Government is a Federal Monarchy, as determined by the Constitution. According to Chapter 2, Section 5 of the Constitution, "Yakormonyo is to be ceremonially led by the King, and officially (led) by two officials: the Prime Minister and the General." The Prime Minister holds the Executive-Legislative branch, while the General holds the Military-Judicial branch. Under each there are the following:
The Executive-Legislative Branch is led by ____
The Military-Judicial Branch is led by General Okunimakan Ionhuar, who took office in 2013.
-Bureau of the Nation/Internal Territories Bureau
-Justice Bureau/Supreme Court
-External Territories Bureau led by
The nation is divided into 5 duchies, former kingdoms with a devolved government. They can create their own laws and reforms; however some laws that affect the entire country require approval by the Federal Council. Duchies are further divided into 25 prefectures which hold the executive power. Below the prefecture are counties, and below the county are subdistricts referred to as wards (incorporated areas) and lands (unincorporated areas).

Although having recently opened their borders to outsiders, Yakormonyo is very isolated with the rest of the world, except for some nations like Cananganam and Yahara. In diplomacy, Yakormonyo has a very close friendship with Heoroma, and a neutral friendship with almost every other country it recognizes.
The Monyo government has a Military-Judicial branch, led by the General. Under him are the Captains of the Nation, Justice, Immigration, and External Territories.
The nation also has a very strict Constitution; according to Chapter 1, Section 5 of the Constitution, "Those who disregard the Constitution or any law created by the Senate are to be deported to a certain place and forbidden from returning to their home district for a certain amount of time, although the nation will supply their basic needs." Because of this, there is very little crime in Yakormonyo.
Yakormonyo has several trains travelling throughout the country (especially the coastal regions), and is the preferred method of long-distance transportation. The busiest train line in the country is the North Line, stretching from the capital Otofu to Ithifará in Toxkaxa Prefecture and passing through three of the five most populated prefectures in the country. Terror bird-pulled carriages and boats are also common, especially in areas which are not serviced by the train lines (ex. Aukoau and Kanioto).
When traveling to nearby places, Monyos usually walk or ride bikes. In most cities there are at least two bicycle rentals, as well us minicarts roaming around that have a slightly higher fare.

Monyo is the official language of Yakormonyo, and is spoken natively by a majority of the population. In prefectures where they predominate, Monyo is co-official with Anakfan, Asxatan, Fokatakian, Ranagaran, Antakanese, and Sagan.
Monyos are conservative and hardworking in nature. They can walk long distances with ease, and usually walk when going to nearby districts.
Grabbing or holding a person with one's hands is normally seen as a very intimate gesture and is generally considered taboo amongst those outside the person's close circle; however anywhere from the hand to the shoulder is treated as less intimate and is occasionally okay to be held.
Raising your arm with the palm of your hand facing forward is recognised as an obscene gesture and is generally used to insult or shoo away someone (especially if the arm is outstretched towards the person in question). Conversely, keeping the palms facing yourself is a seen as a sign of respect.
Tofá refers to the prideful, honour-bound nature of Monyos, such that an affront to one's dignity is seen as a big offense. For smaller incidents such as cursing, hitting or making inappropriate gestures, the offended party usually retaliates an equal amount; e.g. doing the same action back or punching the perpetrator. For more serious incidents that can irreparably damage another's pride, the offended party is permitted to maim the person who caused the incident.
Yakormonyo's most known literature (within the country) is its 'Laws on Good Living' created by the philosopher Samehua Aphucke. In the official version, there are 10 laws, with 10 specific values:
|Follow the rules.||Obedience|
|Honor a promise.||Honesty|
|Love thy nation.||Patriotism|
|Help those in need.||Mercy|
In the Pekhan and Sameji versions, there are only eight values, with some eliminated, most evidently Valor and Obedience. But there is also a value which is not in the Official version as it was only recently added.
|Respect your neighbor.||Love|
Monyo music is separated into three major categories: Ianrati, Hopipiat, and Pipiaxi.
Yakormonyo's main symbol is the Utakani Emblem, which features six feathers jutting out from a central stand, surrounded by a ring. It is the central symbol of the national flag, which is known as the Utakani Banner.
