Transoxthraxia (ᣑ𐤒𐰍𐰢𐤫𐤮| Glorious Kauriaupalatiza) officially the National Revisionist State of Transoxthraxia, is a Unitary reactionary dictatorship which is situated on the Kauriaupalatiza Peninsula in Northern Valeya. Transoxthraxia has a total population of 98,865,555 (2016). The country has just finished a serious and pitched civil war between democratic and Revisionist forces that resulted in a Revisionist victory and the expulsion of the democratic government into exile. The nation is divided into thirteen different provinces, each one of them ruled over by appointed governors, and one special administrative region that is under the direct administrative control of the federal government.
The current head of state is Didact Klyuatra Asergoniz, though some legislative power is also vested in the Vaspiramastyniaus, Aitoras zho Khaulia-Gau. The government since its inception has been criticized as xenophobic and repressive due to its policy towards minorities and foreigners. The capital and largest city is Vounomethea, which has also been the ancestral capital of most previous historical Transoxthraxian states. While Vounomethea holds dominance in most economic, political, and social spheres, other cities such as Iagyas and Zeltainzauksiniz rank similarly in economic performance and population levels. Despite a few incredibly urbanized centers, the vast majority of Transoxthraxia is still fairly rural as a result of the industrialization process the nation went through during the 19th and 20th centuries.
Transoxthraxia has a heritage based well into prehistory, with multiple instances of empire in both ancient and modern ages. The most recent, the Second Transoxthraxian Empire, held sway over a large swathe of territory as late as the 18th century. However, after a period of decay, Transoxthraxia fell into a period of significant foreign domination beginning with the Warlord Era and multiple wars with technologically superior foreigners from Escar and Orda such as Etrulia and Shirakawa. The country underwent a significant civil war beginning in 2014 between the mostly militarily-backed Revisionists and a coalition of pan-democratic forces that resulted in a hostile Revisionist takeover of the country.
Transoxthraxia is a term derived from an Ordan mispronunciation of the term "Zkaunka-Askanka", the native term for the flood plain area West of the Kauriaupalatiza. Transoxthraxia originally became the term for the geographical region after it was learned by many Ordans that the Kauriaupalatizan Empire that dominated the region at the time ruled throughout the lands of the Zkaunka and Askanka rivers, thus Trans-Zkaunka-Askanka, eventually becoming bastardized as Transoxthraxia.
The term Kauriaupalatiza, the native term for Transoxthraxia, is a subject of much debate. Most likely the term derives from early Setic mythology, specifically from the Transoxthraxian nature deity Khaurzas, as "-palatiza" can be transliterated into the modern "paltza", meaning land, area, or in some biological contexts "heart". However, linguists are unsure of the connection between the two and many often call the link coincidental.
Transoxthraxia has been continuously inhabited for many millennia. Prior to the mass arrival of Native Valeyans to the continent, the prior Human settlements belonged solely to the Setic group of cultures, which are considered to be some of the oldest Human populations to have left Osova. Transoxthraxians are descendants from these Proto-Setic populations who were pushed to the fringes of the continent during the arrival of the Native Valeyans some time circa 6,000 BCE if archaeological and genetic studies are to be believed. During the Great Valeyan Migration a large group of what would become Native Valeyans migrated from Escar over to Valeya, pushing out the fewer numbered and technologically inferior Setic peoples from much of the good farming land. During this time period, only certain Setic populations had abandoned their hunter-gatherer traditions in order to live a sedentary life. For the most part, Proto-Setic peoples lived in self-contained family units, each one often claiming many kilometers of land and meeting with other groups annually only to marry. These nomadic Setic populations included the ancestors of the modern Transoxthraxian people.
Most likely, the Proto-Setic ancestors of the Transoxthraxian people lived a nomadic life in the fertile flood plains that now constitute the Central Provinces region of Transoxthraxia, subsisting on their hunter-gatherer lifestyle and interacting minimally with the settled Proto-Setic peoples that had begun the foundations of the Ťiȁn City-States. When the Native Valeyans reached the Zkaunka-Askanka basin, they mostly intermingled with the settled population but pushed the nomadic populations out of the fertile areas; the former were resistant to their settlement, the latter less so. The nomadic Setics fled Eastwards into the Kauriaupalatiza, where for some time they continued their nomadic ways. It wouldn't be until the Conquest of Iagyas in which Primitive Transoxthraxians would emerge back onto the global and archaeological scene. Between the disappearance of the nomadic hunter-gatherer Setic peoples of the Central Provinces and the emergence of the Transoxthraxians following their conquest of Iagyas is an archaeological mystery. The swamp has not preserved much evidence, archaeological or otherwise, and as the Proto-Transoxthraxians were nomadic at the time, few, if any historical sites may exist.
The Pre-Dynastic Period was a period of Transoxthraxian history that is not well documented, with most knowledge coming from later sources reflecting on the earlier period. During the millennia of its existence, the Pre-Dynastic Period saw the stratification of Transoxthraxian society and the gradual split into various tribal groups, many with their own dialects and religious practices.
