Kelonna, officially the Kingdom of Kelonna (Kelnish: Kelnisch Kuningruga), is a developed island nation in southwest Astyria. It lies to the southwest of Teudallum, the closest landmasses being the island states of Jarridia to the northwest, Valle Crucis to the southeast and Torim Viqalka (part of Cadenza) to the east. Kelonna covers an area of 868,000 square kilometres and is home to 96 million people.

Kelonna is governed as a constitutional monarchy, with King Leopold II as its current ruler. It possesses a bicameral legislature, with a House of Lords and a People's Assembly forming its Parliament. The current Prime Minister is Kale Raedspire. The nation's capital is Kelowna, in the northwest, and the largest city is Marianport on the east coast.

History

The consolidation of Kelonnan territory in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries ultimately led to the kingdom coming into conflict with Cadenza, which from the 1630s had established a presence on the island of Acsia and on the Kelonnan mainland. A series of Cadenzan-Kelonnan wars occurred over more than eighty years, ultimately forcing Cadenza to relinquish its Kelonnan holdings.

Geography

Kalenhuda Riding in the summer

The nation of Kelonna consists of an archipelago with a land area of 850,817.41 square kilometres which lies between 19 and 31 degrees south of the equator. The main island of the Kelonnan archipelago is Kelngsa, followed by Acsia and Kyngsa. It enjoys a humid subtropical climate in the north and a temperate climate in the south, with heavy rainfall throughout the spring and autumn months. This has given the country lush vegetation and most of Kelonna is covered in extensive grasslands, with forests in the northeast and along the west coasts.

Politics

Kelonna is ruled by a constitutional monarch, Leopold II, and governed by a bicameral Parliament. The upper house of this legislature consists of the kingdom's hereditary nobles and life peers, of whom there are currently 218. Since 2006, the 400-seat lower house, called the People's Assembly, has been dominated by a coalition government of the Party for a Christian Democracy and the Egalitarian Alliance. These two parties have steered Kelonna out of cultural isolationism and into a period of increased regional ties, economically and politically. Kelonna is unaffiliated with any of the major Astyrian power blocs, but its foreign policy favours the Astyrian Treaty Organisation.

Local government

Kelonna is divided into eleven political units known as ridings. These units are administrated by elected councils, or ruydetingen. Riding governments are responsible for the provision of services such as education, including libraries, healthcare and emergency services. Cities and some large towns are administrated by their own councils with similar responsibilities.
