The United Grand Republic of Kuhlfrosia, commonly referred to as the Grand Republic or simply Kuhlfros, is a federal republic composed of 54 provinces along with multiple overseas territories located in the region of Greater Ixnay, Kuhlfros is found along the northwestern coast of the continent of Levantia. The 54 provinces of Kuhlfros are also divided into eight regional entities. Kuhlfros is known for becoming a northern cultural melting pot of Germanic and Gaelic cultures. After a period 40 year long period of isolationism, the Republic began regaining economic and political success reaching to become one of the world powers.

Kuhlfros is a highly developed and progressive nation with primary industries and are among the largest and most advanced producers of electronics, manufacturing, and vehicles including motor vehicles, ships, and aircraft. Kuhlfros also has large industries in the fields of forestry, mining and refining metals, and a growing industry in shipping and commerce. Kuhlfros also has a large industry in tourism due to it's scenic and well preserved landscape and long history. Kuhlfros is also known to be among the lead developers in alternate and renewable energy in the world.


Entomology

The name Kuhlfrosia comes originally as a collision of the names of two distinct cultures within it's territory, originally the Frusci and Kuhlci (also known as Valli) which described the two cultures, the former (the Frusci) were named as those whom lived in waste land where Latin explorers first encountered the people, the Kuhlci or Valli on the other hand were named from their location, living in the valley and lowlands between the two mountainous regions of Kuhlfros

The term United Grand Republic of Kuhlfros or Grand Republic came about in an anonymous essay written 1810 in the Alpsend Journal, the author, while unknown, was a republican spokes person whom had written multiple essays in the past advocating for a republic and end of the monarchy in Kuhlfros.


History

Prehistory

After the Ice Ages, two significant groups of people began to roam in the what would be Kuhlfros, those being Insular Celts and various Germanic tribes, traveling north and developing into separate cultures due to the rugged and mountainous terrain that segregated them in a new hospitable land. This was the way of things as the groups began to settle down and develop into tribes in certain areas, several ancient artifacts and landmarks remain from this period including stone circles and barrows.

Antiquity

Antiquity, better known as from the bronze to iron age saw the development of multiple diverging tribes both Insular and Germanic whom were established in multiple geographic areas. That was until (Undefined date) that Latin Roman invaders took over a majority of Kuhlfrocia in what would become the Northern region of Cuhlfra. Thus continued a (long time) of Latin rule until multiple revolts, large tribes, and economic disastar forced Latins into subservience and near extinction for some time in Kuhlfros.

However also during this time Christianity began to spread and become popular among the Celts and Germans and several missionaries became well known. A number of which becoming saints.

The Dark Ages

The Kuhlfrosian Dark Ages (est. 600 AD-900AD) was an Era of conflict and more foriegn takeovers.The first half Kuhlfrosian Dark Ages consisted of conflicts between the multiple new states of Kuhlfros taking hold of Kuhlfros after Latin collapse, the German kingdom of Kuhlcia and the Gaelic kingdom of Froscland where the largest and battled almost constantly in somewhat inconsistent records of victory and losses by both factions. However this time came to an end after the Viking invasions whom in the 800s took over and enslaved the Northern half of Kuhlfros, while the remaining Kuhlcians and Frosclanders defended desperately from the Tiberian Wall until the formation of the kingdom of Kuhlfros, by King Douglas Macrae I 'The Builder' Whom united Germans and Gaels under one banner and led the a series conquests endorsed by the pope to retake Kuhlfrosia and the Holy Levantian Empire Kingdom of Culfra

The Middle Ages

After beating back the raiders, the Kuhlfrosians found that some of the Northerners had settled the nation and willingly submitted into the fold of Christianity and the kingdom. The Kingdom of Kuhlfrocia was a multi-cultural monarchy where feudal lords varied in culture dependent on location and the King and his royal family maintained a mixture of the cultures. Eventually the cultures of the kingdom began to adapt to one another culturally and with it ideas and methods spread like wildfire. Some of which included [Pan-Germandom], [Pan-Gaeldom], and [Latinic-Subjugation]. During this period the Kingdom of Kuhlfrocia undertook numerous wars and conquests against it's neighbors to the north, east, and west. Only to tread with care around the Urcean Kingdom. During this period Kuhfrocia grew closer to it's height in power thanks to it's multi-cultural progressive policies adopted socially, economically, and militarily.

The Kuhlfrosian Enlightenment

The exposure of gunpowder, new thoughts and ideas and sciences brought about an era which would be known as the Kuhlfrosian Golden Age, as well as the important idea of 'Adaptivism'. Due to Kuhlfros' progressive methods when Protestant groups came into development they were handled quickly and fires of rebellion swiftly extinguished. However that does not mean they were eliminated but they were dealt with and submitted to the very religious multi-cultural nation.

In inspiration of earlier ideals of uniting their culture, the idea of spreading Kuhlfrosian culture and control was a popular event and thus began the great colonizations. Among the first colonies were on the Continent of Crona, which was then established into the colonial subject of Fakolan followed by the Antartic Yytuskia. At the same time, philosophers, free thinkers, and scientists enjoyed a great amount of freedom and in some cases church and state sponsorship in their activities. Thus the foundation of many sacrosanct ideas and important knowledge and technologies were developed in the Kuhlfrosian Commonwealth while stricter southern Levantian nations worked against progress. However, a failed canal project sent the colonial empire spiraling into debt, which then led to reconquests and the selling of marches to prevent disaster. Soon after, a famine struck in the late 18th century, new and more liberal ideas took hold among the Kuhlfrosian populace

The White Revolution

In the early 19th century, Kuhlfros experienced several defeats in war, food shortages, severe debt, and rebellions due to nationalism and other factors. These issues came to it's peak in 1822 when taxes were raised so high that much of the nobility fell into debt. Within the next year, on January 18th, 1823 a riot broke out in the capital which was difficult to subside by the stationed army in Adenborough, however the very next day many of those soldiers joined with Kuhlfrosian revolutionaries, from nobles to peasants and merchants and farmer, all people were involved as they marched into the Imperial Palace unharmed and greeted the at the time King Daniel VI MacRae who presented his abdication and what was the preamble of the Kuhlfrosian Constitution.

Formation of a Republic

In that year of 1823, The United Grand Republic of Kuhlfros was formed in to represent freedom and a government for the people, with the Abdication of King Daniel VI, all royal ties and alliances were broken, and any remaining colonies of the Kuhlfrosian Commonwealth were granted independence. However the attempt to leave the Holy Roman Empire was prevented due to threatening military presence of the Kingdom of Urcea to Kuhlfrocia's south.

The Recovery and the Industrial Revolution

The first two decades of the new Republic was one of great difficulty. The nation turned inward in order to focus on the problems at hand, food shortages depopulation, and poverty wreaked havoc and riots upon the nation, not to mention the rising inflation and looming debt the previous government had yet to pay. However thanks to the developments of the steam engine, a solution started to appear as Kuhlfros isolated itself from everyone aside from Levantia and Coscivia.

The Industrial Revolution saw Kuhlfros work to change from an agrarian society to an urban industrial society, while new wealth and developments came with this, as well as the pay off of the debt and drop of inflation. New problems arose, wealth gaps and poverty grew even greater and also organized crime groups worked the streets of the growing cities for their own wealth.

Government and politics

The United Grand Republic of Kuhlfros is the oldest surviving Republic and Democracy in Levantia. It is a constitutional republic and represenative democracy where majority rules tempered by minority rights protected by law. The government is regulated with a reformed system of checks and balances defined by the Consitution of Kuhlfrocia, which serves as the nations supreme legal document.

In the Kuhlfrosian Republic Federal system, citizens are usually subject to four levels of government: federal, regional, provincial, and local.The local government's duties are commonly split between county and municipal governments. In almost all cases, executive and legislative officials are elected by a plurality vote of citizens by district. There is no proportional representation at the federal level, and it is rare at lower levels.

The federal government is composed of three branches:

Legislative: The bicameral Congress, made up of the Bundesenat and the Dáil Kuhlfrocia, makes federal law, declares war, approves treaties, has the power of the purse, and has the power of impeachment, by which it can remove sitting members of the government. Executive: The President is the commander-in-chief of the military, can veto legislative bills before they become law (subject to Congressional override), and appoints the members of the Cabinet and other officers, who administer and enforce federal laws and policies. Judicial: The Supreme Court and lower federal courts, whose judges are appointed by the President with Senate approval, interpret laws and overturn those they find unconstitutional.

The Dáil Kuhlfrocia which is the lower house which has 517 members, often called Represenatives, Dáilmen, or Congressmen, each representing a congressional district for a two-year term. Dáil seat are apportioned among the provinces by population every tenth year.

The Bundesenat has 104 members called Senators which each province having two members elected to six-year terms with one-third of the seats are up for election every other year. The President serves a four year term and has a four term limit in office however this limit is rarely met and elected by direct vote. The Supreme Court, led by the Chief Justice of the United Grand Republic has seven members whom serve for life.

Both regional and provincial governments are structured in a similar fashion as to maintain uniformity and the voice of the people in the Republic. However as the cultures of the nation have become mixed and are no longer in separate areas the regional governments have slowly become redundant and defunct of it's original purpose of representing the needs of the multiple different culture groups in the nation.

The Constitution in it's final form establishes the structure and responsibility of the federal government and it's relationship with it's regions and provinces. The Constitution has been amended 23 times since it's ratification and it's first ten called the Macrae Rights which form the central basis of Kuhlfrosian individual rights. All laws and governmental procedures are subject to judicial review and any law ruled by the courts to be in violation of the Constitution is voided.
