The Sanaman Federation of People's Republics is a democratic country in southern Benacia, constituting the successor to the previous Democratic Republic of Sanama, which fell on 3.II.1701 during the latter stage of the Sanaman Civil War. With the secession of the Republic of Cisamarra and the Democratic Humanist Republic of Highpass, as well as the cession of Shimmerspring and most of Thanatos and So Sara, the SFPR has been reduced to Amarra and Sanilla and some adjacent areas. After gaining independence from Shireroth in 1671 the country has gone through several major upheavals, revolts and reformations. As a communalist country since the Sanaman Civil War, it so far lacks a centralised national government, instead operating with separate committees for various issues. It is however expected that the Federal Coordination Committee will assume at least some of the functions of a traditional executive. A national legislature is also being formed, with a vigorous national discussion ongoing about its organisation, election and powers. A new national constitution was passed in a referendum in 1702.

History

Main article: History of Sanama

The Sanilla and Amarra Liberation Army for Democracy declared independence on behalf of Sanama in 1671 as a consequence of the Kalirion Fracture. The Kalirion Fracture sent the local government into disarray. Years upon years of debauchery and excesses in the nobility had lead to a government in all but name. Fueled by the outrage of the working masses at the discrimination leveled against them by the bourgeoisie landowners and nobility, the SALAD quickly took control of the former county of Amarr. They rapidly expanded along the coast to the east, enjoying massive support among the Sanaman people. The islands of Ž and Azarea also joined after local uprisings.

On 12.X.1671 the SALAD leaders announced that Sanama had been liberated from fascists and imperialists. They announced elections for local citizens' assemblies to take place on 15-16.X.1672. The SALAD leadership committed to not fielding any candidates nor participate as a party in the election. It also launched a campaign to get people to vote, with efforts to educate the people. The SALAD was succeeded by the Sanaman Liberation Front.

Sanama disputed southern Highpass with the local bourgeoisie and a low intensive war broke out along a line of control. The claim was later temporarily abandoned and a treaty reached with Shireroth.

In 1672 the provisional government adopted the Natopian natopo as the currency of Sanama. The Shirerithian Erb had been used up until then, but since the Kalirion Fracture, that currency was in free fall. To stabilize prices and secure the important revenue from oil exports, the government unilaterally adopted the natopo. On 2.V.1673, the people of Sanama voted to change the official name of the country from the Democratic Federation of Sanilla and Amarra to the Democratic Federation of Sanama.

In XV.1678 General Adalwolf Hiedler took power in the 1678 Sanaman coup d'etat and established a military junta. The rule of the junta quickly descended into repression and violence, fueling mass protests. On 21.III.1679, an increasingly insane Hiedler proclaimed himself King of the Sanamans. About three weeks later, he was assassinated in the Lakhesis Incident, after which Councillor Amarlic Woehrle handed ultimate state power back to civilian authority.

On 12.X.1679 elections were held to the new legislature and the newly established presidency, marking the beginning of the Second Republic. During this period, the coalition between the United Nationalist Alliance and the Sanaman National Party dominated national politics, under the presidency of Keysa Nur Pinito Caprici, with Tanilo Lhayi as Chancellor in the beginning. The period saw an unprecedented expansion in the Sanaman military as well as the overall Sanaman economy, after the governing coalition liberalised key areas of the economy, while keeping a tight grip on those sectors deemed most important to national security.

After an economic downturn during 1686 which the provinces were unable to handle, the Second Republic came to an end on 1.I.1687, when Sanama transferred to a unitary state, with extensive devolution to three autonomous countries. The economic downturn led to a decisive victory for the center-left coalition consisting of the Sanaman Liberation Front and Coalition 1660, ushering in a period of cohabitation with the center-right president Nur Pinito Caprici. The first period of cohabitation was marred by conflict between the Council of State on one hand, and the President on the other, with the President making strategic use of her veto powers. However, the constitutional requirement to not veto measures included in the Chancellor's Programme was respected. After the government under SLF Chancellor Taliya Wilamu failed to adequately recover the economy and adopt decisive national security measures, as well as a scandal in the UGB involving Coalition 1660 played out just before the 1691 election, the center-right Alliance for Prosperity came back into power, now with the roles from 1679 reversed, with Nur Pinito Caprici as Chancellor and Tanilo Lhayi as President. The Nationalist & Humanist Party, newly admitted to the AfP, made sure that they would enjoy a comfortable majority in the Lhusan.

After treason by the Democratic Humanist Party and its leader Jasmina Hosseini, and the failure to form a stable government after the 1697 election, Sanama descended into the Sanaman Civil War (1698–1702). The Sanamati Democratic Party with the People's Defence Force emerged victorious in Sanama proper, while Cisamarra and Highpass seceded and Shireroth annexed Shimmerspring, Thanatos and So Sara. The elected government under Chancellor Keysa Nur Pinito Caprici went into exile in Sanaman Cibola. The Port Esther Summit established the new Sanaman polity under a communalist federation, while nationalists formed a republic in Cisamarra and Humanists formed a new regime in Highpass.

Culture

Values

The Sanaman value system is primarily based on personal alliances, especially those based on family, friendship and religion (particularly Somanes). Sanaman values emphasise maintaining harmony in society, motivated by group inclusion. The primary penalty for deviating from these values is the concept of "peya", translated as a sense of shame. Most Sanamans are concerned with social approval, being accepted and belonging to society. Caring about what others will say or think is a strong influence on social behavior. There is also the sense of "tapu", meaning a moderately strong taboo against discussing other people's private affairs in public. Other aspects of Sanaman values are a concern for the wellbeing of society as a whole, concern and care for other people, especially the poor and elderly, friendship, hospitability, respectfulness to others, and a strong dislike for dishonesty, cheating and taking advantage of others.

Politics

Main article: Politics of Sanama

The Sanaman polity is organised into six tiers, from the bottom to the top. Instead of powers and competences being decided at the top and then distributed down, they have instead been delegated from the bottom to the top. The people retain the right of direct involvement in political decisions on all levels, primarily through the public remittance system, but also through referendum and citizen initiatives. For example, on the national level the legislature has established a system of committees for various topics, like education, foreign relations and criminal law. When the process to adopt a new guideline is initiated, the committee responsible brings in representatives of various interested parties. For instance, when forming new guidelines for primary education, the committee consists of representatives from the legislature, teachers' unions, school confederations, parents' associations, and student councils. The committee strives for consensus, but can if all attempts at consensus fail, adopt a proposal by a majority vote. The proposal is then announced to the public for comment. Neighbourhood committees usually organise opportunities for their residents to come together to discuss various issues, as well as proposals for comment. When comments have been received and collated, the legislature either adopts, amends or rejects the proposal. It is also very common for proposals to be initiated on the neighbourhood, commune or communal union level and then "sent up the chain". The people's republics are autonomous in many areas, with a select few reserved for the federation. However, the federation, as well as all tiers, are free to set guidelines, strategies and targets in an effort to coordinate across political boundaries. Guidelines set at the federal level are usually seen as a benchmark for more detailed rules in lower tiers. So while the federation only has a few reserved competences, the legislature is free to make policy on any political issue it so chooses, and these are then treated as an expression of a common national sentiment, not as absolute binding rules. Legislation passed by the people's republics and cantons generally follow the general guidelines set by the federal legislature, but there are also numerous deviations from those guidelines.

The national legislature, named Lhusan Sharamli (Sanaman for national assembly), consists of 1,750 members, directly elected in single-member constituencies. The assembly meets at least twice per year, and fresh elections are held each four years. All elections are required to be by secret ballot. The assembly members form committees based on interest and selection, which in turn formulate national guidelines together with other invited interested parties. Between meetings the assembly is represented by its Select Committee consisting of 175 members. Any urgent measures can be passed by the Select Committee, but those decisions will then need to be ratified at the next general assembly meeting. Among the various selected committees the Coordination Committee plays a central part in coordinating policy and arbitrating conflicts within and between other committees. The committee consists of all the chairs of the other selected committees. Its two chairpersons are the closest Sanama has to formal heads of government, while the chairpersons of the Foreign Relations Committee perform several functions of a formal head of state, such as signing letters of credence and receiving ambassadors.
