Cuaziland, also known as the Republic of Cuaziland or in the language of the Nacxa, Cualtzincalihuacan, is a medium-sized nation on the continent of Avalonia, and includes the heartland of the ancient kingdom of Cualtzincalihuacan, the former Kingdom of Cuaziland, and the former Kingdom of Moorsebysland.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
The name "Cuaziland" is an Anglicanization of the name of the Nacxa Empire "Cualtzincalihuacan", which Tiperyn settlers had erroneously applied to the land as a geographic area rather than a political entity. In the 15th century is was known as "Cualtzinland" which eventually got shortened to "Cuatziland" and eventually to its modern form "Cuaziland" some time in the 16th century. The name "Cualtzincalihuacan" means "land of beautiful waters" in the Nacxa language.

Junta Period (1914-1962)[edit | edit source]
With tensions rising worldwide in the 1910s, as wellresurgent monarchism and a fear that the disenfranchised Cuazi natives might find foreign allies in the outbreak of a civil war, the white population began to seek a strong leader who would rebuild Cuaziland's military and prevent war from reaching the country. This culminated in a constitutional crisis in 1914, in which then-General Rodric Macarthur Powles was elected to the Cuaziland presidency while declining to step down from his military post, in violation of the military-civic separation of powers written into the Cuaziland constitution.
While President Powles's administration was able to prevent civil war, he did so only through excessive usage of presidential emergency powers and intimidating members of the congress. Elections were rigged and eventually suspended outright, and the constitution changed, ignored outright, or creatively interpreted by the regime. which made heavy usage of both coverups and propaganda to retain control of the white population while using often brutal methods to enforce compliance. Hundreds of civil rights abuses have been recorded during this period. The military budget was increased, and in some cases used against small uprisings.
Most infamously, Powles began a campaign focused on ethnic blending, forcibly relocating hundreds of families while shaping policy to encourage interbreeding between the two ethnicities. Consensus of modern historians is that these policies amounted to an attempted genocide of the Naxca people.
Powles was assassinated in June 1959, resulting in a three-way civil war between the authoritarian Powlesans, led by Kevin Cethern with the backing of the Army and factions within other branches of the military, and a pro-Democratic coalition of various smaller democratic and communist groups with the backing of the Air Force and most of the Navy, and an ethno-religious Huitzilopochtlist Nacxa insurgent army led by King Meztili. The bulk of Powlesan forces surrendered when Cethern was captured by pro-Democratic forces in January 1962. Meztili was forced into hiding shortly after the defeat of the last of his forces in the Battle of Tenoxicoco in March, after which the country held its first real election overseen by an international elections committee.
