Marian North is the most Northern Nation on Northern Earth. It is an Alpha Monarchy, with a council made up of 12 families which consult the ruling matriarch. It was established as a result of War with the now Marina South, which it won ownership of Lake Wyman as well as independence. The War was started due to the Prior Marian Government attempting to switch the Monarchy in favour of Alpha Democratic Selections, putting the disadvantaged Female Ren Zuiperi in Political Limbo. The Capital was then moved further North,to Dia, to prevent a Blitz attack from the Ren Shaole of Marian South.

History of Marian North:

Following the Marian Civil War, Marian North split from Marian South. Marian North is the portion of Former Marian that surrounds Lake Wyman. Along with this possession Marian North also received Old Historical Relics such as the Stones of Tim, and the Ruins of the Dian People along the Dian River in the North. 

The Royal Family of Former Marian stayed in power and built a propaganda agency to spread the glory of the Royal Family throughout the public schools of Marian North. Due to the Civil War many Ren Shaole citizens became displaced due to the aggressors from Marian South primarily being of the Ren Shaole species. The Government built Communities to house these displaced citizens. The environment in these communities were watched heavily by Government Officials, but this did not stop the Communities from being one of the most violent areas of Marian South, primarily the Capital District of Dea.

During the Age of Immortality the Queen of Marian North, Queen Ra’Kovan, had the propaganda agency spread that Immortality was a gift given to her citizens by her power and as long as the citizens obeyed her laws they would continue to live without the fear of death. 

When the Age of Immortality ended the citizens revolted and ravaged the streets. The Queen was deposed of and replaced by her daughter, Queen Ra’Yakan. Queen Ra’Yakan sent Government police throughout the Northern Cities around the capital to arrest protestors and suspected protestors (Mostly of Ren Shaole Decent). These Protestors were sent to the Camps in the furthest North portion of the country against the ocean. 

Envoys from Marian South attempted to make an agreement with Queen Ra’Yakan’s government but she declined their offer to take the refugees. Queen Ra’Yakan created the Refugee Solution which was to transport all the suspected Ren Shaole and Ren Zuiperi sympathisers to an artificial island in the Northern Ocean. This document was leaked to the public as an extermination attempt that was to be blamed on Marian South. Following the reveal the Propaganda Agency attempted to spin it as fake information but eventually Queen Ra’Yakan was replaced by her sister Ra’Darvari.

Queen Ra’Darvari signed an agreement with Marian South President, Dr. Yuani, for free travel between Marian North and South for Ren Shaole and individuals with Ren Shaole ties. These agreements allowed for the removal of the Ren Shaole ghettos. The Propaganda Agency was reformed to be the Fellowship Agency that was to promote unity between the groups within Marian North and have Marian North seem as the beacon of Northern Earth for Globalization despite Marian North being more shut off than most Nations in the region.

Geography:

Marian North shares its borders with Vlagora and Kima to the East, and Marian South and the Suminiatini Federation to the South. The lands of Marian South are split between Temperate Forest (Around Lake Wyman), Coastal Lands (Along the Northern Ocean) and Dry Grasslands (In the South). The temperature of Marian North ranges from -10C in the Winter and 30C in the Summer. These temperature varieties allowed Marian North to grow a vast array of plants within their borders. The first civilization to develop within former Marian developed in Marian North along the Dian River which when the floods receded gave the lands a boost in fertile soil.

Politics:

Marian North is an Alpha Monarchy. The Royal Family, primarily the Head Matriarch has final say in all laws that approaches her desk. The Royal Family is followed by Leaders populated by the best performing families in the State’s University called the Royal Guards.

The Royal Guards are to ensure that the laws of the Queen are being followed. This is done by creating local laws in their appointed districts. The Queen’s law superseded all Royal Guard laws. This came into debate when Queen Ra’Yakan was revealed to be shuttlelling Ren Shaole to the North. The Royal Guards of the Southern Districts tried to argue that the citizens of the Southern Districts were protected by the power given to them by Queen Ra’Kovan. However Queen Ra’Yakan made sure that her law was the highest authority that supersedes even prior Queen’s Law. These Royal Guards were replaced and sent North.

In the Modern Day current Matriarch, Queen Ra’Darvari is in charge of all aspects of Marian North Law. The Royal Guard are to enforce those laws and the Council Croup are to survey and propose laws.

Foreign Relations:

The Armed Forces of Marian North were vital to the win for Marian North in the Marian Civil War and the Suminiatini World War prior.

The Weapons of Marian North are fully made within the borders which put them at a disadvantage against their Southern Neighbors in the Modern Day, however because of the Marian South buffer Marian North is able to have superior numbers against the Suminiatini Federation. Along the Eastern Border Vlagora and Kima are both non-aggressors thus Marian North doesn’t guard as heavily.

Economy:

Marian North has an Extremely robust agricultural and wildlife economy. Marian North’s main export is wood from the Pamili Sima tree. Marian North ranks among the lowest in economic power houses in the region due to its closed off nature but because of that it also has the lowest debt in the area and thus doesn’t need to support other regions in their economic endeavors. 

Transport is primarily along the Marian North State Super Highways. These Highways transport across Lake Wyman. Only commercial vehicles are allowed to transport along this route. To get a commercial vehicle however isn’t difficult; it’ll just cost the applicant a high monetary value which is used to fund the repairs for the Highway.

The GDP of Marian North remains leveled ever since Queen Ra’Darvari took control after the economic collapse following the End of the Age of Immortality.
