The Federal Republic of Kanglapo (Kanglapolish: Кангйузни Кангпубик ла Канглапо), or simply Kanglapo, is a theocratic communist state located in East Uletha. Approximately half of the country's population resides in urban cities, including Nandacheongfu, the capital; Samchinchoeng and the oldest city Czhong-cheonging. To its east is the Bai Empire, to the west Kojo, and to the north is the Kinglavian kingdom, formerly part of Kanglapo, separated by the Kesamyans mountains.

The Katayans formed an early kingdom in the 8th century after a treaty was signed which united the Katayan tribes in the land. As the Kingdom of Ka, the land joined the Bai Empire on the 13th century as a tributary state, from which it later ceded in 1523, after a team of Surian (called Seborians in Kanglapo) colonisers led by Yasha Pointochivich started to establish Surian ports in the country and launched a war against the weak Bai Empire, bringing it under Surian control. After a century of Surian occupation, Kanglapo declared a war of independence in 1757 against the Surians, which then officially granted Kanglapo independence as a kingdom in 1758. A revolution took place later in 1850 which overthrown the Ting Dynasty, forming the 1st Republic of Kanglapo. However, the 1st Republic went through many government changes through coups and revolutions, until a 3-year civil war between Liberals and Economists which ended in a communist revolution in 1890.

The War of Fellow Brothers started by the Bai Fascists' invasion of Kanglapo through Operation Honghua. Approximately six million Katayan citizens perished during the war. After the War, the period of dictatorship under Ming Sa Hing continued until his death. Kanglapo then opened up and modernised under key socialist principles, though the economic prosperity has brought many problems such as corruption. Kanglapo briefly became a dictatorship once more under Dek Jae Jan in a military coup in 2001, who was overthrown in 2014 through the Awakening Revolution and thus Kanglapo became a Christic socialist state known today.

Kanglapo is a technologically advanced developed country driven by a highly educated and skilled workforce. The economy is well-developed thanks to its long legacy of openness and focuses on innovation. The official language of the nation is Kanglapolish, which also has many regional dialects, with the Kanglapolish Kosh being its currency.

History[edit]

Independence[edit]

The Katayans, not happy with paying high taxes to the Seborian, launched a revolt which was quickly suppressed in 1752. However, the revolts then lead to massive rebellions, and later accumulated into the 1757 independence war against the Seborians. Faced with a strong army, the Seborians tried to negotiate for self-governance but ultimately failed. Eventually, the Seborians then fled the country after proclaiming independence over Kangalpo in 1758. The Kanglapolish Kingdom was thus restored.

However, under the kingdom rule, the people are still not happy with the absolute power held by the empire.

Republic[edit]

Following the 1850 Democracy Revolution, the Republic of Kanglapo was formed with Ga Hang Di as the president of Kanglapo. However, the victory of the Kanglapolish Nationalist Party is short-lived, as Kanglapo became divided over differences in customs, religion, leftists and rightists, and fears of Nandacheongfu political domination. After the kingdom fell, the new government have to re-establish its economy and reform its education due to low educational and skills levels prevalent in the country. Disastifiscation with Hang Di's government prompted his resignation in 1856 and was replaced by Sai Ta Lon, who focussed on re-developing and constructing urban areas for nations to trade with Kanglapo. However, his neglect over rural areas has resulted in the 1862 coup d'etat against Ta long's government, bringing a brief military rule until four years later, when the military finally agreed to hold elections. The 1866 elections saw the Kanglapolish Nationalist Party brought to power again, this time allied with other parties.

Under the leadership of Ca Peng Nin, the nation went through a brief period of stability, thanks to increased state revenues from mineral exports. However, political infighting in the 80s led to the assassination of Ca Peng Nin and was replaced by incompetent Shi Tui Lek, who decided to improve people's lives through welfare policies, leading to the government being bankrupt a few years later due to his failures to develop the economy simultaneously. The Ministry of National Economics later stormed the parliament during a session in 1871 after more failures under his administration, starting a string of chaos in the nation with no ruler having effective control over the country for the next 50 year while having to face frequent invasions from the Bai Empire. In 1897, Kanglapolish Democratic Liberals engaged in a civil war with Congressian forces (from the Kanglapolish Nationalist Party). Tired of the constant fighting between pro-leftists and pro-rightists, Tach Ning Lei and several communist supporters set up a separate army force against the Liberals and Congressians, and managed to re-united Kanglapo under one power. After the capture of Nandacheongfu, the Democratic Republic of Kanglapo was established in 1890 with Ning Lei as the new president of Kanglapo.

Communism and Unification[edit]

Meanwhile, the communists in Biangsinglia managed to topple the Biangsinglianese Royal Government following the 1st Biangsinglianese Civil War. Talks between Tach Ning Lei and Barikahif Ignatievram were held in 1920 to discuss a possible merger of the two countries into one united communist republic. Issues between the two nations, such as the establishment of a common state market and the rights of the different groups, were resolved. The 1923 Pointochinikia Declaration was signed by both leaders on 13 July 1923, which merged the two nations. Under the federation, the two leaders became chairmen of their respective countries, and power of Pointochinikia is shared between the two.

However, shortly after the merger, the Katayans and the Biyanas civilian often clashed with each other, and in 1931 a separation policy was implemented to divide the two communities. However, tensions over the different levels of rights between the two communities often sparked riots, and the separation policy is said to be 'largely unsuccessful in trying to keep the two communities in line and the country together'. Attempts for racial integration also failed during Zhen Van Song's tenure. Several pro-Kanglapolish independence organisations such as the Kanglapolish National People's Congress lobbied for the separation of Kanglapo but failed until Ming Sa Hing came to power as Chairman of Kanglapolish State Affairs in 1946.

Modern Kanglapo[edit]

After the dissolution of the federation, Ming Sa Hing remained in power as the prime minister of Kanglapo until his death in 1971. During his last years, he went on with Kanglapo's nuclear programme which was largely opposed by the Biangsinglianese government and the outside world. His son, Ming Sui Lang took power shortly after his death, and halted all nuclear programmes and re-initiated development projects for Kanglapo. He was then succeeded by Li Ching Sam after an election in 1972 to take over Sui Lang, as he feels he is not worthy to hold the position and also other personal commitments.

Under Li Ching Sam's rule, he continued Sa Hing's industrial plans, which has garnered some great success. Li Ching Sam then loosened governmental control over citizens' personal lives and also opened up Kanglapo's market. Li Ching Sam is then succeeded by Keng Tong Li, who pledged to improve social lives by introducing a shared healthcare system, reforms in education and create new jobs. However, while such reforms take place, corruption has begun to emerge within the government and there are also reports of political infighting. Tong Li has to resign in 2002 over corruption scandals and was replaced by a military government led by Dek Jae Jan, who transformed Kanglapo as a dictatorial nation and resumed some of Sa Hing's policies including nuclear arms and strengthened its army under the military first policy. However, his rule is rather short-lived after the 2014 coup by his twelve state ministers, who reformed the Kanglapolish government such that there is not just one single leader over the federal government.

Culture[edit]

Religion[edit]

Officially Kanglapo is a Christic state; the Christic movement is Kanglapo's official religion. The government of Kanglapo declares itself a Christic communist state, which differentiates itself from other communist states which are largely officially atheist. Nevertheless, other religions have been tolerated, but the infamous Inam Purges of the 1980s and the most recent Purity Movement in 2011 questioned the freedom of religion in the country.

Government[edit]

Kanglapo is a one-party state governed by the Kanglapolish Communist Party (KKP).
