(entirely rigged) Democratic Republic
What was once a both spiritually and technologically advanced nation is now a ruin, a mere shadow of its former self. Absolutely crushed by the Demarian Empire in the two year War of the Lillie (200 years prior), the nation is now controlled by a government undoubtedly approved by Demarian officials behind the scenes. Many of its cities lie in (still populated) ruins and the nation has relinquished all control of its waters to the Gaphian Empire.
War of the Lillie
Crumbling under economic burden and confident that it could defend itself against Demarian invaders, the Hayen Republic dug in and stopped its regular payments (see: Aqua Vida taxation) towards their militaristic neighbor. Hayain hopes soon turned out to have been null and void, as after only a month of viscous clashing, Demarian shock troops found their way through an underground pass ( now nicknamed Traitor Pass). In the following onslaught, the DEF (Demarian Expeditionary Force) obliterated two Hayen cities before the nation’s unconditional surrender.
