HistoryEdit

Main article: History of Saridan



DemographicsEdit

Saridan had always been mostly a rural country, with few cities which usually are located on the coast and aren't very big. However, the urbanization percentage and the population density have risen significantly in the recent years with Kaap and Sint Pietereiland experiencing both big external and internal immigration acoompanied by population growth, today 37.6% of Saridani people live in cities.The people of Saridan are from four major ethnic groups:


Tasselstaat & Kaap settled by Duntrekkers & white Artanians; large Duntrekker majority in Ijkpieland

Boerestaat mix settlement, most Canrillaişe & Mordusian speakers found there

Colonization pushed out Ikpie people from coasts and fertile land; large tracts of inland tropical forest and savanna given to indigenous people as reserve/homeland

Mulattoes, called Iftgoerroon, people make up 63% of population of Sint Pietereiland (Province); mixed-race people of Duntrekker/Artanian and indigenous descent. The Fact Sint Pietereiland staat has became the main target of foreign immigration to Saridan further solidifies its multi-ethnic identity.

The Island was split between white Artanian people and mixed-race mulattoes for many centuries; developing distinct culture and viewpoints(secularism, distrust of capitalism, permissive morality, etc).

Religion Edit

95% of all Saridani people profess Hosianism. Of these, 86% of them are members of the Restored Ameliorate Church of Saridan,8% Theogosian and 5% Luthoran. 4% of all Saridanese are atheists, the remaining 1% professes Yazidism or other religions.

Urbanization Edit

Whilst the average urbanization percentage may seem low, please keep in mind the big diffrences in modernization between various Staats. Urbanization still remains on a small level in comparision with numerous other nations, the traditionalist nature of the Duntrekker majority who desire to live in their small agricultural villages is the main factor. Below is the list of all Staats' urbanization rates:

Sint Pietereiland Staat- 61% Urbanized

Kaap Staat- 59% Urbanized

Tasselstaat- 27% Urbanized

Ijkpieland Staat- 24% Urbanized

Boerestaat- 17% Urbanized

CultureEdit

Main article: Culture of Saridan

Saridan is divided culturally, with the two northern-most states(Kaap&Sint Pietereiland) being significantly influenced by modernist ideals since the mid 39th century. Tasselstaat, Boerestaat and Ijkpieland still remain purely Saridani Duntrekker culturally with agriculture and religion playing the main role in these staats' inahbitants' lives. Typical Duntrekker villages still are dominant in these staats with only a few small cities that don't resemble the busy northern metropolies of Sint Pietereiland or Kaap in any way existent. Kaap's culture combines the modern culture of Sint Pietereiland with the traditional culture of the rural Staats.

Culinary Culture Edit

Sint Pietereiland culinary culture: Edit

- rice, chicken, pork, beans, fruits, fish and various kinds of seafood are common

- beef & dairy products are hard to come by on the island

- pork (esp. ham) & vegetable sandwiches are very popular lunchtime meals

EconomyEdit

Main article: Economy of Saridan
Cofee Beans

Coffee beans.

Traditionally, the economy of Saridan has been based nearly entirely on agriculture. Nowadays however agriculture still makes up for 64% of the Saridani economy with the service sector and the industrial sector making up for the rest. Coffee plantations in Tasselstaat, Boerestaat and Ijkpieland produce one of the world's finest coffee blend which is desired by foreign markets.
Tea Plantation Fields

Traditionally, agriculture has been the main sector of the Saridani economy and had a big impact on the culture of Saridan. Nowadays, agriculture still makes up for 64% of the economy with the service sector and the small indutrial sector making up for the rest. Coffee is grown in Tasselstaat, Ijkpieland and Boerestaat, by many it is viewed as the finest blend of coffee on Terra making it a good resource for exports. Another prestigious resource in Saridan is tea, it is grown in Sint Pietereiland and on a small scale in Tasselstaat. In the past tea plantations were managed by rich families in a nearly feudal-like way, today they are owned mainly by modern corporations which treat their workers ethically and pay them well.

The Service Sector is mainly present in Sint Pietereiland and Kaap, it makes up for 46% of the first staat mentioned and 38% of the second one.

Industry is only present in the north, especially in Kaap.

Main article: Government of Saridan

The Current government was shaped by the Constitutional Reform of 3863.

The Kanselier of Saridan is the head of the cabinet, he/she is serving alongside the Vice-Kanselier of Saridan. King is the official head of state, but is entirely symbolic and holds no real power. Whilst the Kanselier can enact executive orders, negotiate on behalf of Saridan and order to deploy troops, the Vice-Kanselier is only capable of negotiating on behalf of Saridan unless the Kanselier isn't capable of exercising his/her duties, in that case the VK gains the powers of the Kanselier.
