Insui, officially the Federative Republic of Insui (Insuian: República Federativa do Insui), is a sovereign state in Ixnay. Located in the heart of the western world and along the southern Sea of Odoneru, Insui shares land borders with Palmeria and Caphiria. Insui covers an area of 3,145,359 km2 (1,209,860 sq mi) and has a largely tropical climate. With around 365 million inhabitants, it is the third-most populous nation in Ixnay.

A highly developed country, Insui owes its development to its healthy mixed economy and strong economic growth over the years, and has used it's size to maintain stability in the region. It has a very high level of human development and enjoys the second highest life expectancy in the world. Insui plays a prominent role in regional and global economic, military, cultural and diplomatic affairs, with a number of academics considering the country to be both a regional power and a great power.

Insui's economy is the world's sixth-largest by both nominal GDP and GDP (PPP) as of 2032. A member of the *insert_economic_bloc* group, Insui until 2020 had one of the world's fastest growing major economies, with its economic reforms giving the country new international recognition and influence. Insui's national development bank plays an important role for the country's economic growth. Insui is a founding member of the League of Nations, ARGUS, and the Community of Lusophone Nations. Insui is a great power in Ixnay and considers itself a great power in international affairs, while some analysts identify it as a great power with potential superpower status in the future. One of the world's major breadbaskets, Insui has also been the largest producer of coffee for the last 264 years.

Etymology

History

Pre-Latin era

Prior to the establishment of the Imperial Province of Alexandria, Insui was inhabited by various native peoples. Unlike its southern neighbor, Palmeria, Insui was shielded by natural features on all sides, delaying the arrival of Latin peoples to northern Ixnay.

The earliest human artifacts in Insui are parts of stone tools found near campfire remains in the Sonora Valley and radiocarbon-dated to circa 10,000 years ago. Insui is the site of the domestication of pineapple, cacao, tomato, and cassava, which produced an agricultural surplus. This enabled the transition from paleo-Ixnayan hunter-gatherers to sedentary agricultural villages beginning around 5000 BC.

The earliest complex civilization in Insui was the Tevari culture, which flourished on the Ecinian Coast from around 1800 BC. Tevari cultural traits diffused through Insui into other formative-era cultures in Santiago, Venice and the Victorian states. The formative period saw the spread of distinct religious and symbolic traditions, as well as artistic and architectural complexes.

Separation from Caphirian Pontificate

Tensions between Caphirians and Insuians increased when Caphiria sought to unify its people under one flag, leading to many uprisings within Insui. The divide created by years of imperial isolation led to many moves towards independence by Insui. The provincial government adopted Alexandrian, what would become modern Insuian, as the official language of the province. The government then introduced its own currency, the Insuian Peso, to replace the Aureus. The growing differences were compounded by weak nature of the Imperial government, leading many Insuians to believe that it was time for an exit.

In a final effort to maintain control over Alexandria, the Imperator sent a small army of men to put down the efforts. This would prove unsuccessful as the Alexandrians had planned for this. Adding to this, there were stirring concerns back in the capital. Uprisings were beginning to occur near Venceia in opposition to the pontificate government. This would eventually lead to a coup, led by Faustus Galerius Pertinax, however, much after the separation of Alexandria from Caphiria. Amidst the growing issues back home, the armed men returned back to Venceia, leaving Alexandria to organize itself into a small, but ever-growing country. In 1671 the United Alexandrian Provinces were proclaimed, headed by Jorge Avilo de Santa.

Geography

Climate

Insui map of Köppen climate classification

The climate of Insui is characterized for being tropical presenting variations within several natural regions and depending on the altitude, temperature, humidity, winds and rainfall. The diversity of climate zones in Insui is characterized for having tropical rainforests, savannas, steppes, deserts and mountain climate.

Mountain climate is one of the unique features of the Cimboìa mountains and other high altitude reliefs where climate is determined by elevation. Below 1,000 meters (3,281 ft) in elevation is the warm altitudinal zone, where temperatures are above 24 °C (75.2 °F). About 82.5% of the country's total area lies in the warm altitudinal zone. The temperate climate altitudinal zone located between 1,001 and 2,000 meters (3,284 and 6,562 ft) is characterized for presenting an average temperature ranging between 17 and 24 °C (62.6 and 75.2 °F). The cold climate is present between 2,001 and 3,000 meters (6,565 and 9,843 ft) and the temperatures vary between 12 and 17 °C (53.6 and 62.6 °F). Beyond the cold land lie the alpine conditions of the forested zone and then the treeless grasslands of the charnecas. Above 4,000 meters (13,123 ft), where temperatures are below freezing, the climate is glacial, a zone of permanent snow and ice.

Biodiversity and environment

The Insuian ecology is megadiverse: about 17,000 species of vascular plants and over 1,800 species of flowering plants. Insui is home to 428 mammal species, 784 bird species, 311 reptile species, and 295 amphibian species. About 91,000 insect species have been described. The Insuian Harpy eagle is both the national bird and the national animal of Insui, and is an enduring symbol of the country itself.

There are 72 national parks and hundreds of other federally managed parks, forests, and wilderness areas. Altogether, the government owns about 30% of the country's land area. Most of this is protected, though some is leased for oil and gas drilling; about .86% is used for military purposes.

Environmental issues have been very low but have been on the national agenda since 1994. Environmental controversies include debates on oil and nuclear energy, dealing with air and water pollution, the economic costs of protecting wildlife, logging and deforestation, and international responses to global warming. Many federal and state agencies are involved. The most prominent is the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), created by presidential order in 2000. The idea of wilderness has shaped the management of public lands since 1964, with the Wilderness Act. The Endangered Species Act of 1973 is intended to protect threatened and endangered species and their habitats, which are monitored by the Insui Fish and Wildlife Service.

Insui is a federal republic of 33 states, a federal city, and three territories. The states and territories are the principal administrative districts in the country. These are divided into subdivisions of counties or parishes and independent cities. Alahuela is a federal city which serves as the capital of Insui. The states, the three major territories (Ilhas Bicarianas, Providência, and Santa Elena), and Alahuela choose the President of the Republic. Each state has presidential electors equal to the number of their Representatives and Senators in Congress, Alahuela has 5.

Congressional Districts are reapportioned among the states following each centennial Census of Population. Each state then draws single member districts to conform with the census apportionment. The total number of Representatives is 375, and delegate Members of Congress represent Alahuela and the two major territories.

Law

Military

The armed forces of Insui are the third largest in Ixnay by active personnel and the second-largest in terms of military equipment. It consists of the Insuian Army (including the Army Aviation Command), the Insuian Navy (including Naval Aviation), the Insuian Marine Corps, and the Insuian Air Force.

Numbering close to 250,000 active personnel, the Insuian Army has the largest number of armored vehicles in Ixnay, including armored transports and tanks. It is also unique in Ixnay for its large, elite forces specializing in unconventional missions, the Insuian Special Operations Command, and the versatile Strategic Rapid Action Force, made up of highly mobilized and prepared Special Operations Brigade, Infantry Brigade Parachutist, 1st Jungle Infantry Battalion (Airmobile) and 12th Brigade Light Infantry (Airmobile) able to act anywhere in the country, on short notice, to counter external aggression.

The Air Force, it is one of the largest in Ixnay has about 5,276 aircraft in service and effective about 328,000 personnel.

Insui has not been invaded during its current state, with the only invasion occurring in the 5th century. Additionally, Insui has no contested territorial disputes with any of its neighbors, nor does it have rivalries. The Insuian military has also twice intervened militarily to overthrow the Insuian government. It has built a tradition of participating in WA peacekeeping missions.

Foreign policy

The foreign policy of Insui is the way in which it interacts with foreign nations and sets standards of interaction for its organizations, corporations and individual citizens.

The officially stated goals of the foreign policy of the Insui, including all the Bureaus and Offices in the Insuian Department of State, as mentioned in the Foreign Policy Agenda of the Department of State, are "to build and sustain a more democratic, secure, and prosperous world for the benefit of the Insuian people and the international community". In addition, the Insuian House Committee on Foreign Affairs states as some of its jurisdictional goals: "export controls, including nonproliferation of nuclear technology and nuclear hardware; measures to foster commercial intercourse with foreign nations and to safeguard Insuian business abroad; international commodity agreements; international education; and protection of Insuian citizens abroad and expatriation. US foreign policy and foreign aid have been the subject of much debate, praise and criticism, both domestically and abroad.

Law enforcement and crime

Law enforcement in Insui is primarily the responsibility of local police and sheriff's departments, with state police providing broader services. Federal agencies such as the Departamento Federal de Investigação (DFI) and the Federal Marshals Service have specialized duties, including protecting civil rights, national security and enforcing federal courts' rulings and federal laws. At the federal level and in almost every state, a legal system operates on a common law. State courts conduct most criminal trials; federal courts handle certain designated crimes as well as certain appeals from the state criminal courts. Plea bargaining in Insui is very common; the vast majority of criminal cases in the country are settled by plea bargain rather than jury trial.

Capital punishment is sanctioned in Insui for certain federal and military crimes, and used in 8 states. No executions took place from 1997 to 2002, owing in part to a Supreme Court ruling striking down arbitrary imposition of the death penalty. In 2001, that Court ruled that, under appropriate circumstances, capital punishment may constitutionally be imposed. Since the decision there have been more than 1,300 executions, a majority of these taking place in three states: Santiago, G, and Maserata. Meanwhile, several states have either abolished or struck down death penalty laws.

Border Security Force

The Border Patrol (PFI) is an Insuian federal law enforcement agency. Its mission is to detect and prevent illegal aliens, terrorists and terrorist weapons from entering Insui, and prevent illegal trafficking of people and contraband. It is an agency within Insuian Customs and Border Protection , a component of the Departamento de Segurança Nacional (Department of National Security) (DSN).

With over 21,000 agents, the Border Patrol is one of the largest law enforcement agencies in Insui.

Riano K. Rossi has been Chief of the Border Patrol since 2010.

Population

Insui is a fairly diverse land, settled mostly by the Latin people who looked to expand their Empires, eventually blending with the native populations there and throughout the rest of the country. As such, some 23% of people in Insui are Latin. 70% of the population is a mix of Latin and native Insuian or some combination thereof. Small minorities of other ethnicities, making up the remaining 7% exist in Insui, spread throughout the nation in many different areas.

A vast majority of Insuians are Christian, with many falling under Roman Catholic or some other Christian faith. Insuians are free to worship as they please, and freedom of religion issues often prove to be top priorities for local and state governments.

Energy

Insui is the world's eighth largest energy consumer with much of its energy coming from renewable sources, particularly hydroelectricity and ethanol; the Granita Dam is the world's largest hydroelectric plant by energy generation. The governmental agencies responsible for the energy policy are the Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy, the Energy Commission, the Insuian Electric Reliability Corporation and the Congressional Energy Board.

The nation's power transmission grid consists of about 600,000 km of lines operated by approximately nearly 500 companies. The Insuian Electric Reliability Corporation (CICE) oversees all of them.

Transport

Personal transportation is dominated by automobiles, which operate on a network of 26 million miles of public roads, including one of the world's longest highway systems at 97,000 miles. Also one of the world's largest automobile markets, Insui has the highest rate of per-capita vehicle ownership in the world, with 794 vehicles per 1,000 Insuians. About 30% of personal vehicles are vans, SUVs, or light trucks. The average Insuian adult (accounting for all drivers and non-drivers) spends one hour driving every day, traveling 46 miles (74 km).

Mass transit accounts for 15% of total work trips. Transport of goods by rail is extensive, though relatively high numbers of passengers (approximately 2 billion annually) use intercity rail to travel, partly because of the medium population density throughout much of the national interior. However, ridership on InterRail, the national intercity passenger rail system, grew by almost 37% between 2000 and 2010. Also, light rail development has increased in recent years. Bicycle usage for work commutes is minimal. With the introduction of the Ecinian Coast Maglev system in 2034, the nation's most populated region(s) will have more options to travel.

The civil airline industry is entirely privately owned and has been largely deregulated since 1978, while most major airports are publicly owned. The three largest airlines in Insui by passengers carried are domestic; Premiere Airways is number one. Of the world's 30 busiest passenger airports, 4 are in Insui, including the busiest, Columbia International Airport.
