Kasibaar is a coastal country located in South-Western Avalonia. Kasibaar is a Federal semi-direct democracy under an assembly-independent directorial republic which contains a population of over 35.6 million people. The majority of Baari live urban lifestyles along major coastal urban centres with the largest settlement and capital being Purto d'Ga'alise in the Ga'alise province. Kasibaar encompasses 270,750 km2, however, 88% of the population reside in 10% of the nation's total land area.
Modern-day Kasibaar is bordered to the north by Santa Magdalena, to the east by SiWallqanqa, to the south by blank and Pacharikcha and to the west by the Coral Sea. Its geography is dominated by arid hot rocky deserts and highlands which cover over two thirds of the country’s total land area resulting in the population being largely concentrated along the wetter coastlines. Interior Kasibaar has low annual rainfall which contributed to the hot and dry conditions, despite this a few old Baari settlements continue to exist inland with the presence of a small number of nomadic peoples still seen in the present day. Humans have inhabited in the regions that are modern-day Kasibaar since the Paleolithic period.
Kasibaar ranks high on the Human Development Index, and has a developing upper middle income economy. The Baari economy is primarily composed of developing tertiary sectors as the number of skilled workers increases, however primary and secondary sectors such as mineral extraction and refinement, fossil fuel extraction and refinement and civilian manufacturing are still major contributors to the nation’s economy. The country has a rapidly growing ICT and Electronics sector which has generated competitive wages compared to other states in the region and is projected to become a dominant sector of the Baari economy.
The name Kasibaar is derived from the T'aan Baari word "Kasi", which translates to "home" in Anglic, and "Baar" which is the ancient name of the Baar native people who have been present in the region for hundreds of years. As a result "Kasibaar" translates literally into "Home of the Baar" a name established several centuries ago, evidence of which was found in old journals and other written material found in the region, however was not an officially recognised term for the region until the 17th century when the unification of the Baar tribes occurred.
The name of the Baar people has unknown origins and research regarding the original etymology has been largely abandoned as the name seems to transcend beyond known surviving documentation and likely existed before written archives and documentation were widespread in the region.

Kasibaar is located along the Coral Sea in South-Western Avalonia encompassing a total land area of 270,750 km2. It is bounded by Santa Magdalena to the north, SiWallqanqa to the east, blank and Pacharikcha to the south and the Coral Sea to its west. Two of its boundaries are established by natural features (eastern highlands and western coast) and is borders with blank and Pacharikcha are formed by various treaties and local agreements, however, it’s border with Santa Magdalena is still actively disputed in several regions due to past cultural conflict. Kasibaar’s position along the Coral Sea allows direct access to strategic deepwater oil pockets and shipping routes.
Approximately two thirds of Kasibaar is extremely aridic which has resulted in its population centres being concentrated along its wetter western coastline where approximately 88% of the population reside in major urban centres. The two major urban centres found along the west coast are the cities of Purto d'Ga'alise in the province of Ga'alise and Purto d'Braga in the province of Braga which also house the two largest seaports and two largest airports in Kasibaar.
Kasibaar can be divided into approximately three major geographical zones, the western coast, the country’s centre and the country’s eastern frontier. The coast is generally steep, rocky and barren however, it is wet enough for the formation of mangroves and sparse dry woodlands with a limited number of sandy beaches, the coast on average sits 70 metres above sea level. Central Kasibaar is made up largely of hot rocky deserts with intermittent hills and little to no flora or fauna due to the harsh conditions, it sits on average 450 meters above sea level and is the second most populated region of Kasibaar. The eastern regions of Kasibaar transition rapidly from rocky deserts to arid highlands sitting approximately 900 meters above sea level and leads into Kasibaar’s eastern border with SiWallqanqa featuring steep rocky hills and a harsh rocky plateau. Kasibaar contains only a single major inland river and no major inland lakes.
As of 2019 the Kasibaar Federal Monarchy has a total population of 35.68 million, placing it as a medium sized nation as per global population rankings. Kasibaar has a moderate density on average of approximately 131.81 people per square kilometer, however at a lower level much of the population lives along the coast in two major population centers with a density of 5,521 and 3,213 people per square kilometer. It has a sustainable population growth with an annual change of 2.25% as of 2019, with a moderate average life expectancy of 76.5 years for males and 81.1 years for females.
Kasibaar has a very small but growing immigrant population making up approximately 1.5% of the total population, majority coming from neighboring Avalonian nations. The immigrant population has grown by an average of 5.2% yearly for the last decade due to government interest and investment in bringing foreign expertise to grow industries such as the emerging ICT and electronics sector. As January 19th 2008, the central government has implemented changes to its immigration policies to fast track immigration applications if they fit areas of the economy that are lacking experience or are of government interest to expand which has seen a gradual increase in immigration applicants. Along with the accelerated immigration process, the government has introduced small monetary incentives and tax breaks to draw potential applicants into Kasibaar, and encouraging them to stay.

As a result of Kasibaars climate and geographical limitations, forcing the majority of the population to major coastal urban centers, it holds a high urbanisation rate of 84.3%. Approximately two thirds of the country cannot sustain large scale long term settlement thus resulting in the mass urbanisation of a small coastal strip of sustainable land.

Kasibaar is divided into ___ administrative divisions operating under the Federal Assembly. This includes ____ Kiiths (Anglic lit.: Tribe) and ___ Kiith’chus (Anglic lit.: Split/half tribe). The Kiiths derive from the old monarchist confederal government divisions which can be traced back to paleolithic era Baari tribes, which over time merged and evolved beyond the typical kin-group tribal establishments. Kiith’chus were introduced after the unification of the Baari tribes and are typically Kiiths who have split or lost territory and were typically classified as a lesser Kiith.
The Kiiths are de jure federated states, and have permanent government status with high levels of independence. Under the Federal Assembly the Kiiths are all equal in status, except that Kiith'chu have half representation in the Kiith'ta Assembly (One Kiith'ta instead of two) and only have half a vote in Federal Kiith referendums. Each Kiith follows a directorial system and are able to have their own constitution, parliament, government, police and courts. They also have varying populations, geographical areas and at times recognised languages.
The basis of modern politics within Kasibaar is a democraticised model of Kasibaars old monarchic confederation system adopted in 1960 which shifted from an enlightened non-elected confederation of tribes to a secular elected confederation with semi-direct democracy, deposing the monarchy in the process. It does not feature a codified constitution and is built upon a series of basic laws which were established by the old monarchy and then altered by the Federal Assembly in 1960, covering basic individual rights and the political division of power across the Federal Assembly. There are two primary bodies at the federal level: the bicameral Federal Assembly (legislative and executive) and the Popular Court (judicial).
The Federal Assembly consists of two houses: the Kiith’ta Assembly which consists of two representatives (T'aan Baari: Kiith’ta, Anglic Lit.:Senior Tribesperson) from each Kiith and one from each Kiith'chu who are elected on a per-Kiith basis, and the Common Assembly, which are elected under a system of proportional representation, dependent on the population of a given Kiith. Members of both houses can only serve for 3 year terms and they only serve as members of the Federal Assembly part-time. The head of the Federal Assembly is the Chief of Assembly (T’aan Baari: Ta’arkhan, Anglic: Lord) who serves as the de facto executive body within the Federal Assembly. Through referendum, citizens are able to challenge any law passed by the Federal Assembly and introduce amendments to the basic laws.
Law and Justice
Operates under the central government, classified as a paramilitary force. Primarily operate in remote regions of Kasibaar, however are also often used to protect key government installations, often also used to combat eco-terrorist insurgents and other militia groups in far eastern kasibaar along the SiWi border.
Secondary role is to act as an anti-coup force, used to curb the power of the military over political actions.
Effectively a Gendarme force, typically armed with military grade equipment.
Rail Mobile Police
Operates under the Interior Police, classified as a paramilitary force. Utilises armoured trains to reach and police extremely remote regions of Kasibaar.

The Kasibaari Confederate Armed Forces (T’aan Baari: Arma'ad Fu'urza d'Kiith'un d'Kasibaar) is composed of three main components, the Army (T’aan Baari: Fu'urza fusila'as d'lu'um), the Air Force (T’aan Baari: Fu'urza d'aiik) and the Navy (T’aan Baari: Fu'urza d'aqa) and is the primary acting military force of Kasibaar. The Kasibaari military is primarily tasked with the defense of Kasibaar and currently maintains no long term overseas deployments, partaking only in peacekeeping operations and joint training. Kasibaar has utilised various levels of conscription as a means to bolster its pool of reserve forces since the early 20th century, as of 2001 only one in six eligible citizens are required to serve in the active reserve for one year, however all citizens are expected to undergo basic training at the age of 18. Its forces currently number 392,581 personnel across three main branches (reserve personnel included) and 102,800 personnel in secondary paramilitary and gendarmerie branches. The military is influential in Kasibaar economics and politics and is exempt from laws that apply in other sectors, granting it considerable power and independence within the state built on its prestige, however since the late 1990's the civilian administration has introduced moves to cut back on the military’s political influence and potentially abolish conscription entirely, which resulted in the 2002 Kasibaari coup d'état attempt.
The Armed Forces are overseen by the Directory of Defense who are the high level administrative component of the Kasibaari Royal Armed Forces which itself utilises a shared power structure between high ranking military officials and representatives of the civil administration. It handles procurement, human resources, enlistment and other roles pertaining to the Armed Forces. The Directory of Defense maintains a permanent headquarters in Purto d'Ga'alise. As a result of the military’s high level of political influence and independence it is often regarded as part of Kasibaar’s “deep state”.

The Kasibaari economy is an upper middle income, developing economy and is classed as a small to mid-sized economy on global rankings with a gross domestic product (PPP) of $448.32 Billion and a gross domestic product per capita (PPP) of $12,562. Kasibaar has a growing middle class as the number of skilled workers increases as a result of state investments into high-skill vocational education and tertiary economic sectors, primarily ICT and electronics sectors. Over the last decade, Kasibaars gross domestic product growth has averaged 2.6%.
Kasibaar’s economy is mainly dependent on its primary and secondary sectors as it’s economic foundation with still developing tertiary sectors leading to a gradual growth in the middle class and overall GDP(PPP). Kasibaar has a developed fossil fuel extraction and refinement sector based on coal and oil extraction as well as the refinement of petroleum, petroleum products and other oil based fuels. Large coal deposits in the Eastern Kasibaar are mined at the rate of about 500,000 tonnes (492,103 long tons; 551,155 short tons) per year, part of which is utilised domestically in coal fired power plants typically found inland away from major urban centres. Oil is primarily extracted from deep sea drilling in the Coral Sea by government owned oil rigs which receive on average $1.1 billion dollars in government investment yearly. Oil extracted from the Coral Sea is partially exported in its natural form and partially refined at one of 5 main government owned oil refineries found along the Kasibaar coast, where they are turned into petroleum and other oil based fuels such as heavy oil fuel for export and domestic use. Kasibaar has a prominent chemical engineering and manufacturing sector, made up primarily of fertiliser production, ammonia production and production of refrigerant and cooling fluids. The chemical sector is the second largest second in the Kasibaari economy falling short of only oil exports.

Developing as of the early 2010's, making use of kasibaars vast empty spaces in central and eastern kasibaar to establish massive solar farms. Kasibaar plans to slowly transition to net zero by 2050 with solar farms and large scale battery facilities being the first step toward the goal.
Oil extraction and refinement
Largely offshore extraction rigs along the Coral Sea shelf with expansion into deeper waters in the 70's. Refining is done in the 5 main coastal refining stations.
Highly concentrated on the western coastline, the further east you go the worse and more neglected the road infrastructure gets.
Kasibaar makes heavy use of rail, major railways exist and are maintained from western kasibaar ports to the eastern borders with Pachi and SiWi. Pachi utilises Kasibaar rail (and contracted Kasibaar to build their rail) as a means to access ports in western kasibaar to import and export their goods.
Effectively only really exists in western kasibaar along the coast. Public transport is non-existent elsewhere.
