Empire of Gupta

Capital: Pataliputra
Government: Hereditary Federal Absolute Feudal Monarchy
Head of State: Maharaja
Head of Government: Maharaja
Legislature: None
Demonym: Guptan
Currency: Pagoda, Mohar, Rupiya, Dam, Shivrai

The Gupta Empire is a large monarchical nation in northern Ingdjiva. It borders Edwardia to the west, Ramnad and Hoysala to the southwest, Maurya to the south, and the Frisian vassal of Bengal to the northeast. Off the southeast coast, it shares maritime borders with the northern island of Punjab.

Ruled by the Gupta Dynasty, it was once the dominant power of northern and central Ingdjiva, subjugating many states, including the Mauyra Empire, until the Britannians invaded and conquered much of the western continent. During the conflict, Maurya regained its independence, which only further served to weaken Gupta's power and influence.

During the Ingdjivan Revolutionary Wars, Gupta took a chance to try and reassert it dominance over the continent via reconquest in the midst of the chaos, but was unsuccessful and only managed to regain a minimal amount of land.

Today it is a shadow of it's former self, and only keeps its head high through being the suzerain of Bengal. Recently it has seen a return to glory through various reforms and new relations with foreign powers, many of which have proved favorable to Gupta.

Federated Empire of Hoysala

One of the four great powers of Ingodiga's mainland, Hoysala was once the eastern territory of the Britannian possession, the Commonwealth of Edwardia. Lack of effective governing and impoverishment in these areas, issues that were mostly ignored by both Edwardia and Britannia, led to revolts against Britannian rule, by Britannian Colonials and native Ingdjivans alike, in many central states under Edwardian sovereignty. After the Ingdjivan Revolutionary Wars, the majority of these states formed the Federated Empire of Hoysala; the exceptions were Gandhara and the city-states Ramnad and Candra, all three of which retained their independence. Hoysala has been the dominant power in the region, and acted as a buffer state between the three other major Ingdjivan powers, ever since.

While an elective monarchy, Hoysala is primarily ruled by the Chalukya Dynasty.

Majapahit was once known as the Empire of Srivijaya. After the said empire fell, the archipelago became divided between the kingdoms Kediri, Singhasari, Kahuripan, Sunda, Galuh, and Medang, all vying for land power, a time in Kejaweni history known as the Six Kingdoms Period.

Off the the southeast coast, on the Island of Ceylon across the Strait of Bharat, Maratha controls a small territory that borders Jaffna to the east and Kotte to the south; Maratha conquered this territory to gain control of both the Strait, and a vital trade route.

Once a small nomadic tribe, it eventually rose up against the then dominant, now-defunct, Mughal Empire and eventually became the empire it is now. Though it is the military dominant nation of Ingdjiva, it managed to avoid war with the newly-founded Commonwealth of Edwardia when Britannia invaded the continent, while Gupta wasn't so lucky. Regardless, a three-way war between Edwardia, Maratha and Gupta eventually broke out, resulting in the loss of some of its northeastern territory to the resurgent Empire of Maurya.

Demonym: Edwardian

The Commonwealth of Edwardia, also called the Britannian Raj, is the collective colonial provinces of the Kingdom of Britannia in northwestern Ingdjiva, bordering Gupta, Ramnad, and Hoysala and Candra to the east, Gandhara to the southeast, and Kachari and Tanur to the south. It was established as a result of the Britannian Invasions of Ingdjiva and subsequent colonization by Britannians.

Similarly to Angevin in Nekcroz, Edwardia is divided into several administrative regions. In this case, there are five viceroyalties, but additionally there are seven kingdoms. These kingdoms are ruled by local rulers/dynasties, and maintain some degree of autonomy outside the main political structure of Edwardia, but are legally territories of the Britannian realm.

Edwardia once controlled the central continent, but a War of Independence, discreetly aided by Gupta and Maratha, proved disastrous to Edwardia, and resulted in the creation of the Gandhara, Ramnad, and Candra republics, and the Federated Empire of Hoysala. At the same time, the Xotilic Empire used the chaos to invade and established the Kingdom of Kachari, and another rebellion from the chaos of that same war resulted in the brief independence of the Republic of Tanur, which Edwardia and Britannia recognized instantly to avoid another costly conflict.

Notes & Trivia

  • The demonym for people from Ingdjiva is "Ingdjivan".
  • The name of Ingdjiva comes from the word Ingdjite, which is the collective term for the human ethnicities of Ingdjiva. "Ingdjite," is distinct from the demonym, though the are often, and erroneously, used interchangeably.
    • The language of the Ingdjites is Ingdjese, which is also the dominant language of Ingdjiva.
  • The local pronunciation of the name of the continent is Iṅgaḍajiva (इंगडजिव), which was shortened by Eurodyne linguists and geographers to Ingdjiva for ease pf pronouciation.
  • The reason Songhai is mostly cut off on the map is because most of the cluster is situated closer Nekcroz.
  • The reason Majapahit is partly cut off on the map is because part of the archipelago is situated closer to the middle of the Maritymir Ocean.
