Kundrati, officially known as Kundrati Union (Selucian: Unionis Kundrati, Kundrati: Kundratiako Batasuna), is a nation located in northeast Terra, on the continent of Artania. It shares land borders with Endralon to the east and Kirlawa, Dundorf and Hawu Mumenhes to the west.
Kundrati has a population of 99,677,383 and a land area of 1,041,900 km², having a density of 95.66.
- Kundrati began as different tribal groups distributed around the current territories that form Kundrati. These tribal groups were the Proto-Kundrati people, Peghonai people and the Enetric people.
These civilisations kept fighting for their territories and expansion, forming the Kingdom of Upper and Lower Anluain. This Kingdom would fall soon after its formation and Kundrati would enter into dark times, where there's not much information about the progress of the Kingdom/nation.
In 2397 the first president-for-life arrived to our nation. However, it didn't last long, since the president-for-life was assassinated.
A monarchy was founded in the 28th century, but lasted only around fifty years. Around the 30th century, a federal senate was formed that lasted around two centuries. It ended in a single-party state.
Then, around the mid-32nd century, the Kundrati Union, a socialist republic, was formed, and it is still present in Kundrati.
Around the mid-37th century, most of the parties that existed in the nation disappeared, leaving only the Unio enim si quis Motus Populi. Over the next 1000 years they ruled the country almost completely unopposed. Every 60 or so years a party would appear and then vanish after around a decade.
In 4785, an extremist far-right group tried to secede from the Union. This conflict eventually became a 3-way civil war known as the Kundrati War of Secession.
Following the War of Secession. Kundrati became a socialist republic. In 4842 a coup was led by a man called "The Commander" with Deltarian support. The coup was caused by a series of reforms that took freedom from the people. This coup is known as the "Jult Uprising ". After the coup, Kundrati went a 3 year transition period. Following this period, Kundrati changed its name to the Federal People's Republic of Kundrati.
However, by the 5100s there was a surge of political parties which took hold of the political spectrum, specifically the Kundrati Future Alliance, the Civil Libertarian Party, the Socialist Labour Party and the two conservative parties of Kundrati Democracy and For Kundrati. There was a general period of calm though many policies were changed - unfortunately by 5140 most of these parties, save one, dissolved and merged into other parties. This happened as a independence movement in Jildrath Island continued to become popular, and after 20 high ranking members of a cult died, protests rose up. However, the protests calmed down eventually by 5142 with the Government deciding not to do much and the police clamping down - though the local government has been given a fair bit more autonomy.
By 5143, the electorate warmed up to conservatism as in the 5143 Kundrati general elections the centre-right KD and CLP got an absolute majority of seats, though with more parties (more notably People's Front) appearing to support the left, the politics of Kundrati is now balanced - the 5146 Kundrati general elections will be a true test on how the population will react to the balance of parties.
