Ingavia (Netherlandish: Ingavië) is an island country located in the Great Western Sea, off the East Coast of Corum. It was settled by descendants of the Netherlanders who had fallen into diaspora following the dissolution of their state in the 16th century.

Etymology

The name Ingavië comes from Ingaevones, a name used to indicate the early tribes living in the Netherlands of Corum. Though the origin of the name lies with the mythological High Judge Ing, who is the ancestor of the Ingavian, and Netherlandish people according to ancient lore. During the transition of the Netherlands towards an umraist republic, a number of followers of Jahwe chose to take up the name Ingavian in order to differentiate from the umraist Netherlanders who currently reside in New Batavia.

History

Government

Ingavia is ruled by a council of Judges, which is presided over by the High Judge. The High Judge is the head of government, tasked with maintaining order and guiding the Ingavian people, in order "to defend them from oppression and violence as the shepherd his sheep". The High Judge appoints the council of Judges, consisting of never more than ten, and never less than seven officials. As the High Judge not only holds executive and legislative function, but also is the highest juridical authority in the country, Ingavia may be characterised as a kritarchy.

The High Judge, however, is not the head of the Ingavian state. As an official theocracy, its head of state is Jahwe, or the God of the Old Testament. Jahwe's command is absolute law in Ingavia and is frequently expressed through His prophets. Through the grace of Jahwe, every generation and time has one or more "prophets in the land", who transfer His will and command in order to guide the Ingavian people and their Judges. As a theocratic kritarchy, the state structure of Ingavia is unique in Micras.

Religion

The Ingavian nation is the special chosen nation of Jahwe, the God of His people. Ingavia is described as the nation that the Lord of hosts shall bless, and His inheritance from among the nations of Micras. Religion is thus intertwined with Ingavia's culture and government.
