The Democratic Republic of Kolenomai (English: Cộng hòa Dân chủ Kolinomey), commonly referred to as Kolenomai, is a nation of Pardes located in central Kasaishima. It is bordered to the south by the Belhavian territory of New Shelvoy, and by unincorporated land in other directions. To the east, across th South A'kytian Sea, lies the nation of Anikatia.
Colonized in the early 1800's by Sieuxerr, Kolenomai achieved its independence from colonial rule following the Kolenomese War of Liberation. With a successful victory in 1969, signified by the withdrawal of foreign forces after the siging of the Treaty of Civitas Tarsae, the Democratic Republic of Kolenomai was established.
Modern Kolenomai is one of the poorest nations in Pardes, with a minuscule gross domestic product of 32 billion URD, with the current exchange rate between the Kolenomese Kek and the Emmeria dollar at ‡123.59 to $1.
The Kolenomese economy is primarily centered around food export, with primary exports being rice, coffee and tea. There is also a black market surrounding the harvesting, refinement and exportation of narcotics, primarily opiates such as heroin and morphine.
Military and law enforcement
The Kolenomese People's Armed Forces consist of the Kolenomese People's Army, People's Defense Force and the People's Public Safety Service. The People's Army is subdivided into the People's Ground Force, People's Air Force, People's Navy, and the People's Border Security Service. All branches of the People's Armed Forces are ultimately responsible to the Communist Party of Kolenomai and the General Secretary.
The People's Defense Force is a civil militia that acts as a reserve force. All citizens must serve four years in the People's Defense Force, and remain part of the inactive reserve for 12 years. The People's Defense Force is also tasked with assisting the People's Border Security Service and Public Safety Service with their duties, and act as relief workers during natural disasters, as well as providing extra labor during harvests.
The People's Public Safety Service is responsible for all law enforcement activities within the nation at all levels and acts as a national gendarmes. It is split into two branches, one of which is tasked with investigative services, while the other handles law enforcement responsibilities within the cities and provinces of the nation, as well as customs enforcement and other enforcement duties.
The government of Kolenomai spends a staggering 7.8% of the nation's gross domestic product on defense, equivalent to 4.2 billion URD. Active duty manpower exceeds 1.2 million personal, approximately 3% of its total population, but with reserves and militia forces, the People's Armed Forces personal may reach as high as 6 million armed personal.
In 2014, the nominal gross domestic product of Kolenomai was estimated to be approximately 54.3 billion URD, signifying a GDP per capita of $1,263. The Kolenomese War of Liberation caused severe damage to the nations agricultural capability, primarily through the use of incendiary agents, defoliants and herbicides by Sieuxerrian forces. The extensive damage caused by the conflict necessitated that the government implement planned economics to revitalize the nations primary industry. Since 1969, the economy of Kolenomai has been managed by a succession of five year plans. The Kolenomese economy is plagued with inefficiency and corruption in state programs, poor quality and underproduction, and restrictions on economic activity. In addition, following the end of the Kolenomese War of Liberation, the nation suffered under several embargoes from anti-communist states, including the United Republic, Sieuxerr, and the Belhavian Empire. These embargoes denied Kolenomai access to a variety of powerful markets. Deep poverty, which is defined as persons living on less than 1 dollar URD a day, continues to be an issue.
Historically, as well as in modern times, the Kolnomese economy has been based around agriculture, primarily the growing and harvesting of wet rice. Sugarcane, coffee and tea are also important agricultural products. Collective farms are utilized to increase production yields and quality.
Other non-agricultural secondary industries include mining, particularly bauxite, which is used in the production of aluminum. In addition, a variety of factories, primarily located around the nations port city of Phuc Oc, produce a variety of consumer goods, including clothing and electronics which are then exported. These mines and factories also operated as a collective, though investment and establishment of foreign factories has been allowed as recently as 2013.
