Niulutan-Riu (Niulutic: ණිඋලුතන්රිඋ निउलुतन-रीयू Niulutan-Riu), or the Niulutic Islands, officially the Confederation of the Niulutic Islands, is an island nation in southern Uletha. It lies north of Lallemand, northwest of Suvuma, east of Khaiwoon and southeast of Manae. The country has a population of 1 304 005, the majority of which reside in urban areas such as the capital Chakhuna. Majority of the country' population are Niulutans, with small communities of Khaiwoonese, Alorans and Gobrassians. Iman, Buddhism and Christianity are practised widely on the islands.
In the 12th century, Iman has reached the Niulutic archipelago, leading to the islands being united under a sultanate. However, the islands separated quickly over tribal disputes, invasions by Chakarland and subsequent colonisation by other powers. The islands became a Castellan protectorate in 1673 after the Fourth Niulutic War. Under Castellan rule, the islands were placed under a pro-Catholic regime, which was resisted by some islanders. In 1865, after the Hiamogayan Rebellion, the Niulutans repelled the Castellans and declared its own independence under a new Niulutic king.
The newly-independent country, however, continued to face political troubles. The landmark Nikhushasi (Praise) Revolution in 1922 saw the establishment of a people's republic after the overthrowing of the monarchy. Coups and civil unrest continued to trouble the nation, until the latter half of the century when a Federal States-backed government stabilised the nation. Under Kumuso Tuneuwardee, Niulutan-Riu developed from a largely agricultural society to a market-based diversified economy, characterized by rapidly rising service, public sector, and tourism activities. However, after his death in 1997, violence broke out once more when Cascande and other tribes attempted to cede from the union. An agreement was eventually reached in 2004 to decentralise the central government powers and ensure more autonomy for the states.
Today, Niulutan-Riu boosts one of the highest GDPs in the region. Despite its relative prosperity, poverty remains widespread, and the country has one of the highest levels of economic inequality and unequal wealth distribution, with the upper and ruling class commanding a vast proportion of the country's wealth. There remains restricted freedom of speech and freedom of the press and the Niulutan government continues to limit some civil and political rights.
The rich mines with copper in the north and the south of the islands gives the basic for an sufficient economy. All 7 mines are under state control, to hold the money in the land. 5 mines lay in the northern part of the great northern island Tukinri 10, 21.8303, 93.9084 and two on the southern island Waikinri 11, 18.9936, 96.1393.

Main city and capital of the country is Tsakuna (322 932 inhabitants 2013) on the great northern island.
The transportation from island to island gets over a lot of ferries. From Tsakuna and Calevin sail ferries to Khaiwoon and from Tsakuna to Laguna in Gobrassynia. Tsakuna has an international airport, on some greater islands are regional airports for flights to Tsakuna.
Railways are only at the great northern island Tukin-ri from Tsakuna in the north via Kaloahua to Tukinpai and some side lines. The main line is used too for the transport of copper to the brass and bronce works in Tsakuna.
The first town of the Niulutan islands was Cascande. Cascande was founded 1522 from colonist, leaded by the idea of religious supremacy. Over short or long all the islands of Niulutan belongs to the theocracy of Cascande and so they all have a name after a saint person. The regulary tactic was, to baptist the leader of the indigene tribes and corrupt them, that they go under "the mild hand of god". Only some islands are conquered with violence. This state were known as the "holy islands".
In the end of the 19th century more and more islands declare her independence from the holy state and made step by step the republice of Niulutan Islands. Here native people and ulethian settlers without religious foundation work together. This changing was not always violent, because since the 1880ies in Cascande itself the idea of a theocratic regime lost the support of the own people. First independent 1888 was the great island in the north, Sankt Petrus island and now named Tukunri, which means "Northern-copper-island" with the first capital Tsakuna. Tsakuna til today is the capital of the whole country.
1929 was made the treaty of Napiukon, that the islands are free from theocraty, but that Cascande is then an independent unit of the republicc of Niulutan with many own rights and a religious and christian land - but more neutral and liberal in his living. Therefore today is Cascande more a great theologican university since a theocraty and leading in theological studies worldwide.
Niulutan-Riu is rich of copper. To avoid, that from other states or through illegal actions this ressource is taken over, since 1837 the government of the holy islands and now of the republic of Niulutan-Riu has an agreement of shelter with Zylanda and Latina. Both nations have some troops and navy-units on the Niulutan islands in the Camp Störtebeker in the south 10, 18.2770, 96.4881 and the Camp Bronce in the north 12, 21.4817, 93.7697. Therefore the trade with copper with the Great Copper, Bronce and Brass Company are partly in the hand of zylandrian and latinian merchants.
