'''Seváronsa''', officially the '''Seváronsa Territory''' is a federal subject of the [[Kiravian Federacy]], occupying three islands in the [[Sea of Orixtal]].
 
 
 
==Geography==
 
Seváronsa comprises three major islands: Lordaseváronsa ("Grand Seváronsa"), Lesser Seváronsa, and the more distant Karluk.
 
 
 
The territory has a tropical climate.
 
 
 
==History==
 
Seváronsa was first settled by the ancestors of the Barikol people, who migrated from the Cronan mainland sometime shortly before the Cronan Bronze Age. The Barikol people were tribally organised for most of their history. Their political development progressed such that territorial chiefdoms had begun to consolidate themselves in more densely populated areas of Great Seváronsa and Lesser Seváronsa  by the time of colonisation.
 
 
 
Seváronsa was visited by traders of various nationalities early in the Age of Exploration, though [[Burgundie|Burgundines]] and [[Kiravians]] were the most frequent callers. The Burgundine navigator Nemo d'Placeholder purchased the area enclosing a commodious natural harbour on Great Seváronsa from the native chief Bumi the Duped in exchange for an assortment of Levantine manufactures, including 11 leather boots (5 pairs and 1 lone right boot), four {{wp|Ear pick|ear spoons}}, and two hats. There d'Placeholder established a trading post and way station which he dubbed Havre de Grace. Burgundie acheived suzerainty over Great Seváronsa in [YEAR], which was later extended to the other two islands, which were collectively absorbed into the Burgoignesc Thalassocracy in [YEAR].
 
 
 
Seváronsa was attacked by Kiravian naval forces and privateers several times during the [[Kiro-Burgundian Wars]], but was never captured or occupied. It was, however, offered as a bargaining chip during peace negotiations to end [WHICH WAR?] and ceded to Kiravian control under the terms of the resulting Treaty of [CITY].
 
 
 
Under Kiravian rule, Seváronsa became an important part of the Kiravian maritime colonial and commercial network, serving as a way station for vessels travelling from [[Great Kirav]] and [[Æonara]] to the Kiravian holdings in [[Casinaut]] (chiefly [[Rovaīon]] and [[Porfíria]]), and to various ports of call on the eastern seaboard of central and southern Crona. Coscivian settlers established plantations for various tropical crops, most prominently [[pineapple]]. A {{wp|penal colony}} was founded on Karluk in [YEAR].
 
 
 
==Government==
 
Seváronsa is an external, unincorporated territory of the Kiravian Federacy. Its governmental structure and fundamental law are prescribed by the Territorial Charter of Seváronsa, promulgated by Prime Executive Eridan Vriɣtuvar and validated by the [[Federal Stanora|Stanora]] in [YEAR] The Governor of Seváronsa is appointed by the [[Prime Executive of the Kiravian Federacy]], and is prescribed a three-year term by the [[Schedule of Senior Colonial Tenures]], though a Governor may be replaced or recalled at any point in their term. Gubernatorial appointments are renewable indefinitely, though the usual practice since 21156 has been to re-appoint any governor in good standing to a second three-year term, and no more. Similarly, while the appointment is a unilateral prerogative of the Prime Executive, it has become customary since the 21180s for [[Kroveniren Hall]] to solicit the advice of local legislative leaders during the nomination process.
 
 
 
The territorial legislative body is known as the Legislative Assembly (''Áldaktorix Skráliuv''). Like many and contemporary and historical legislatures in the Coscivian-dominated world, it is a part-time body that meets twice annually at [better tropical/local climatic equivalent of the vernal and autumnal equinoxes] for a period of X weeks. The Legislative Assembly comprises 23 seats, apportioned among the three islands according to population, with a guaranteed minimum of two seats intended to protect representation for Karluk. Each island's delegation to the LA is elected by {{wp|single non-transferrable vote}} in a {{wp|nonpartisan democracy|nonpartisan contest}}, as political parties are banned.
 
 
 
Seváronsa sends a single Delegate to the Federal Stanora. Although political parties are formally illegal and cannot operate in Seváronsa, candidates typically pledge to sit with one [[Caucus (Kiravian politics)|federal legislative caucus]] or another during their campaign. Since the end of Kirosocialism, Seváronsan Delegates have typically sat with either the [[Caritist Social Union]] or [[Coscivian National Congress]], with all Seváronsan CNC Delegates voting as members of the [[Island Nation Party]].
 
 
 
===Law===
 
 
 
==Society & Culture==
 
Seváronsa has an ethnically diverse population. 29% of residents are identified as [[Coscivian]], including significant numbers of [[Melian_Islands#Ethnic_Groups|Melotes]] and [[Æonara#Society_and_Culture|Sinyolans]]. The two largest Coscivian ethno-cultural subgroups are [[Taństan Coscivians]], who account for a plurality of the multigenerational Coscivian residents and a majority of the rural Coscivian population, and [[Austral Coscivians]], who form the largest single Coscivian group in urban areas. 38% of the population are native Barikol, and 33% are of other origins, mainly descended from contract workers brought from mainland Crona, Punth, and Audonia to provide agricultural labour. This includes ethnic X, Y, Corummese, and Z, as well as [[Tryhstian Littoral|Tryhstians]] from Great Kirav. The Burgoniesc population numbers around 8,200 today, mostly living in Avrēdegra and its environs, although there are two Burgittan-speaking hamlets on Lesser Seváronsa. Geat Seváronsa is the most multiethnic of the three islands, with Lesser Seváronsa having a Barikol supermajority. Karluk has an unusually high Coscivian population at 45%, owing to its history as a penal colony and the presence of a Kiravian military base.
 
 
 
Seváronsa is a multilingual society. The Barikol languages, taken together, would be the most spoken language in the territory, though in reality Barikol is a group of two or three languages (Lesser Barikol, Great Barikol, and Northeast Barikol, which some linguists consider distinct) traditionally divided into 10-14 dialects, some of which have merged as a result of {{wp|dialect levelling}}. A separate indigenous language more distantly related to Barikol is spoken on Karluk. Taństan Coscivian is the largest Coscivian language by number of native speakers, and is still used extensively by local governments and businesses. Depending on the context, the main language of interethnic communication in rural and small-town Seváronsa is Taństan Coscivian (in formal settings) or a Taństan-based creole known as ''Awaīśibi''. Awaīśibi is spoken as a native language by most urbanised Barikol and many descendants of immigrant contract labourers. Around 6% of the population speaks Portuguese, including Tryhstians and the descendants of immigrants from Lusophone Cronan countries formerly colonised by [[Insui]]. Kiravic Coscivian is the main language of everyday life in Avrēdegra and Coscivian communities on Karluk, and is the official language of the territorial government, though Taństem Coscivian continues to be used for many governmental purposes. 
 
 
 
70% of Seváronsans are Catholic, with minorities practicing other Christian traditions, Barikol paganism, Corummese folk rites, Islam, and Coscivian religions.
 
 
 
==Economy==
 
Seváronsa has a diversifying economy rooted in plantation agriculture and transitioning toward a service orientation. Tourism, sea and air transportation, real estate and land development, retail trade, and commercial fishing are the sectors contributing most to economic growth since 21190.
