Indragiri, officially the Neutra and Independent Federation of Indragiri (Giri: Negara Perserikatan Bebas dan Netral Indragiri, Indra: Šarikatanäs Inrägyris Bretam dach Neuträl) is a country located in Aeia. It borders Ajerrin to the east, with whom it shares an island with. It is located on the continent of Savai and has a tropical climate similar to its neighbors. Indragiri is known to have two entities, the Indra Federative Republic and the Giri Federative Republic as part of the One State Solution (OSS) charter ratified in 1949, as well as a neutral zone, the neutral capital region of Ambarawa, which belongs to neither. Each has its own president, which would mean that Indragiri has 2 heads of state, although there is only one Prime Minister. Indragiri has one of the best education systems in the world, and students rank highly in standardized worldwide tests. The education system is one of the most prized asset of Indragiri, offering a more advanced curriculum than most other nations.
Indragiri is also known for its pristine beaches that attract domestic and international tourists alike, especially in the Ramaulan Islands off the coast of the Giri Federative Republic with fascinating resorts and world class environments. Most of the 54 million people live by the coast of the Giri FR and the Indra FR, with the biggest city being Kartämun in the Indra FR. The inland regions are mostly mountainous and forested with the area being protected. Less than 5% of the population lives in these areas due to the remoteness of the location. There are only two roads connecting the western coast of Indragiri to the eastern coast of Indragiri.
A bastion of Syndicalism in the early 1980s to early 2000s, Indragiri holds one of the strongest labor union cultures in Aeia. Most of the 24 million workers belong in a union, or around 87% of the total Indragirian workforce. Syndicalism has brought economic stability to the nation in the 1990s. In 2017, Indragiri's GDP per capita stood at $21,358 (Nominal), which puts Indragiri in the higher-middle end of the income spectrum. Major industries of the nation include automotive manufacture, metallurgy, chemicals and electronic appliances. There are special economic zones where foreign nations are able to buy and invest.
Indragiri is known to be one of the most secretive states in Aeia. Few, if any, foreign media outlets operate within Indragirian territory. International human rights organization have slammed the nation for its secrecy, and fear that countless people are being persecuted. However, the government denies persecution to such people, citing that one can not persecute people that do not exist.
The exact origins of the two main people groups of Indragiri are really vague, and any simple theory about the subject could bring massive controversy and backlash in the field of academics. Few, if any, fossils or ancient evidence of habitation of the area exist, and of that that exist are in very poor condition or broken. Archaeologists have recently discovered a cave in the Kariman Cave in the Giri Federative Republic that may have belonged to an early type of human that was inhabiting the area, although the fragments require more research and understanding before they could be concluded by any means.
A slab of stone containing inscriptions from the 8rd century BCE was found near Ambarawa, baffling archaeologists and historians due to the nature and location of the slab of stone. No advanced civilization had reached the Ambarawa area before the 4th century CE according to current and factual evidence found so far. The slab was 1200 years earlier than what most scholars had believed in the first place. One scholar points out that in an ancient Indragiri epic written by an unknown author around the 5th century BCE who possibly lived in the northern parts of Indragiri an ancient kingdom that had a magnificent and huge capital was on heavy bombardment after years of massive crop failure. The finding was named the Lakmi inscriptions.
Historians mostly ignore the contents of the text and concluded that the epic itself was a recreation of a folk tale that was passed down onto generations in Indragiri, until the finding of the Lakmi Inscriptions which was found near Ambarawa. Historians now debate on the existence of such country due to very minimal historical and archaeological evidence. The phantom nation, if existed, would be the first great kingdom of Indragiri. Epics exists on tales of heroes of early Indragiri, with alleged tomb sites of these heroes scattered throughout the land.
By the late 9th century, three distinct proto-states emerged in the island. The thick mountainous jungles of the center provided both defense and a point of espionage for spies, and proved to be beneficial towards one of the earliest known wars of Indragirian history, which occurred between 870 and 890 CE. The Kingdom of Ariman invaded the neighboring northern Kingdom of Altinan after allegedly killing one of their envoys. The invasion lasted for many years, and took place in a variety of places. The most notable battle site, which is now a national park, is the Muren river in the north, where embankments built during that period are still preserved, although pretty ruined, and still contain inscriptions and writings about the war.
The Altinan Kingdom managed to fend off the Ariman invasion, and the Ariman Kingdom was forced to retreat after food supplies for the soldiers became more scarce. The peace of Gaqunak, dated to be from the year 894, is the first charter to be written in the old Indra language using an abugida that is probably brought over by Cataian traders. The peace dictates that the two kingdoms shall not interfere with each other for a period of 50 years, and that both kingdoms' sovereignty must be respected by both. As a result, the peace agreement led the Murti kingdom south of the two to gain an advantage over the both. The Murti invasions of the northern kingdoms in the 960s finally subdued the two kingdoms, and making them vassals of the Murti.
The Murti kingdom, now having control over much of what is present day the Indra Federative Republic, grew to become one of the most known proto-state of Indragiri. Their influence on the southern and smaller Giri-speaking kingdoms would have tremendous effects that would last for almost a millennia long. With smaller kingdoms becoming a vassal of the Murti kingdom, the southern states formed the southern Giri alliance, a military and defense agreement that would fight for the sovereignty of each member state. The southern alliance that was formed posed great threat to King Hamariye III of the Murti kingdom, who feared that an invasion of border towns might weaken the Murti, as the southern Giri alliance are known to be fiercer warriors, who the Murti kingdom compensate with more manpower.
A temporary non-aggression pact was signed in 1002.
Revenge of the Indra
The Indra were getting outnumbered by the Giri in terms of number and power, and something quick has to be done. Massive amounts of Indra rioters flooded the streets of the Giri Capital of Ambarawa on 24th of February 1868 and caused an overthrow in Government. The king was killed and the Indra gained massive powers. Although the Indra had gained power, the new Indra king was not as violent as the previous Giri kings and loosened the leash on the Giri by a lot, forming the first proto Indragirian federation.
A New Future
Things seemed good, until massive amounts of Giri died in the man-made famine of 1905 which was allegedly conspired by the Indra PM.
The Chaos strikes back
The Giri attempted to break free by proclaiming their own kingdom which was caused by the man-made famine of 1905. They succeeded and fought with the Indra for decades until the 1942 permanent cease fire and the creation of the One State Solution Plan Comission (OSSPC).
Return of the Federation
The OSSPC attempted to recreate the Federation, which was agreed by both parties in 1947. The two reunited in 1949.
The Socialist Awakens
Democracy was embraced in Indragiri for many years, but this was cut short by a socialist revolution led by Sumartono Sastrowidyatmo of the Indragiri Socialist Party. Indragiri became a Unitary One Party Socialist State overnight with Premier Sumartono Sastrowidyatmo as head of government and state. The coup happened in 1981 and lasted until 2004 with the death of Sumartono Sastrowidyatmo. Democracy and the federation structure was re implemented.
Despite all of this, Sumartono Sastrowidyatmo's death was perceived with great sorrow and sadness by the people of Indragiri, and he was declared a national hero for improving the lives of most Indragirians by a lot. Some people might even classify him as a "Benevolent Dictator" for what he has done to his country.
In 2005, a 240m statue of Sumartono Sastrowidyatmo would be built in the center of Ambarawa at an estimated cost of Rp. 550 million. The statue was funded publicly and gained Rp. 179 million in its first year alone. The statue was completed in 2014 and took 9 years to build. It is currently the tallest statue depicting a figure in Indragiri and one of the tallest statues in Aeia.
