Kazulmark, officially the Federal Republic of Kazulia (Kazulian: Forbundsrepublikken Kazulmark) and internationally referred to as Kazulia in Luthorian, is a nation in northern Dovani. It is bordered by Dankuk to the northwest and Hulstria-Mikuni to the south. To the east of Kazulia lay its former colonial possessions (now independent). It is the 43rd largest nation on Terra, and has a population of just under 100 million.
The name "Kazulmark" literally means "March of the Kazuls", and has been used on and off since the Middle Ages before becoming the nation's proper name in modern times. The suffix "-mark" is generally interpreted as referring to the medieval kingdom's independent location on the borders of the Empire of Gao-Soto, which dominated medieval Dovani, whereas "Kazul" refers to the Kazulian people (though this reference is strictly speaking metonymic, as Skjölds and Danskha constituted separate identities within the kingdom). The international name "Kazulia" is of Luthori origin, being used to describe the nation in colonial times. It is still the official name used when referring to the nation in the Luthori language.
Government and PoliticsEdit
Kazulia is a Federal constitutional parliamentary republic with a ceremonial Head of State and a parliamentary executive led by a Statsminister. Given Kazulia being mostly a multi-party state throughout her history, governments are often made up of multi-party coalitions representing either the socialist or the bourgeoisie side of the Stortinget, although present political developments have led to the development of centrist, left-wing and right-wing parties
The Stortinget is the unicameral national legislature. It has 193 members elected through proportional representation. It convenes in the capital Skalm, Dreton Members of the national government are usually members of the Stortinget although ministers can be appointed from outside the Stortinget.
