Midway, officially the Midway Republic (Kunikata: 中方向 共和国, Chūhōkō Kyōwakoku), is a sovereign country located in the center of the Dovani continent. It is bordered by Liore in the east and Bianjie in the west. It is a former colonial possession and federal state of Sekowo that was granted independence.
Midway occupies a central position of the Dovani continent, which is why the Sekowan colonists named it Chūhōkōkuni ("Midway Country"), which was eventually shortened to simply Chūhōkō ("Midway"). The indigenous population who occupied the area were not a united nation, and thus had no name for the entire region.
The unifying culture of Midway centers itself around the concept of a "middle nation" composed of different kinds of peoples united by the ideas of "tolerance" and "peaceful ways" formed in their known practice of neutrality.
Chūhōkō was during a time a nominally democratic republic with a federal constitution, but in practice it was a presidential dictatorship ruled by the dictator Naquichinisa Hiraku, another in a long line of dictatorial rulers that plagued the country following the instability left in the wake of Sekowo's withdrawal.
