Kiton (Kitonese: Kithana; French: Kiton), officially the Kaika Confederacy (Senraya Keika; Confederation kaique), is a sovereign island country consisting of 39 states (nagara), federal territory (rajanagara), and the capital, Kota Sri Nakanejra, which is the seat of the federal government.

History

Kitonese prehistoric mythology

Various Kaika sub-ethnicities have their own creation myth and explanations for their origin. It is agreed by historians that the Keika peoples originated from a migration of Yayoi-Jomon people from Japan from 2300 BCE to 500 CE.

The early Keikas maintained a strict cultural separation between themselves and the inland natives. The mihika (Negritos) had lived in the rainforests deep within the island and on the mountains. They were perceived differently in different times: they were seen as the kamukamu, the guardian spirits of the mountains; later they would be known as the wan'asuras, the demons of the forests (this view was prevalent in the Indic age), and finally the blessas (cf. Skrt. mlecchasas, barbarian) in the medieval era. The Keikas had a very deep respect for mountains, seeing them as the abode of the divine. The early Kaikas struggled to adapt to the tropical climate, let alone the dense malarial rainforests, used to a sedentary lifestyle of rice cultivation rather than hunter gathering. Like their Yayoi-period cousins, they were also very spiritiual. Their migration lasted until the 5th century CE, at the beginning of the centralization of Yamato power in the Japanese islands. Their homeland was around present-day Alava, where they maintained a distinction between themselves and the blessas


Indic age


When Indians began to arrive in Kiton from the 1st century BCE, pre-Hindu Vedic religion and Indian rituals and statecraft were brought to the island. The Japonic clans began to slowly come together to form kingdoms modeled after Indian regimes, adopting a priestly-royal caste. While blessas formed Indic kingdoms, the most dominant kingdom on the island was the Hwakahan state, which spread along the Kitonese north coast. The kingdom existed alongside smaller kingdoms, such as the Malay Kutai kingdom and the Kahiwa and Maha Nakura Kaika kingdoms. Most of them vied for control of Mount Nakatatimahameru, the sacred mountain in Alava.

Introduction of Christianity

In present-day Kerala, India, St. Thomas Syriac Christianity was growing and had spread into Hwakaha. It enjoyed limited popularity among the populace, but was adopted by the Hwakahan king Nukayomasikihiri in 455 CE. In 461, Hwakaha gained control of Nakatatimahameru, erected the trikekara (triple crucifix) at the base of the mountain, signifying that the sacred mountain of the Kaikas now belonged to Takatua, the god of the Christian Hwakahans. This did not sit well with the other Hindu-animist Kaikas, who saw this as an act of aggression.

Late Christian Era

In 731, The Hwakahan king Jayayahu commissioned a translation of the then disjointed Christian texts into Sanskrit, and used the Old Testament as propaganda against the Gentiles, appropriated as the blessas, the Hindus and animists. By this time, Christianity became the dominant religion in Hwakaha, but was in communion with the Assyrian Church and had grown the population accustomed to pacifism. Under his reign, the church ceased to be in communion with the Church of the East and used Kithanovedic, an educated local Sanskrit dialect as the new liturgical language. The new Hwakahan church was manipulated by the secular ruler, who had banned the Acts of the Apostles and Epistles from public use as it was deemed to promote pacifism and was against state interests. In fleeing religious persecution, ironically from a Christian government, large numbers of civilian Christians fled across the island. This was the beginning of Kaika Christian dominance on the Kitonese island, when local kings began to officially tolerate outlawed Christianity in keeping with state interests.

Sakanese Crown The Sakans were a tribe who emerged from the Hwakahan who practiced Kithanovedism and lived in the kingdom of Rajola. They were the dominant power on the Kitonese island from the 5th century CE till the 20th century. The empire had vassal polities all over the island and were the first to claim the name Kiton, or country of the Keikas, for themselves. They captured Alawa, the homeland of the Kaika people, where the mythical Wotuki kingdom once stood. As a trophy, the Sakanese king affixed the name of Alawa to the country, the Kingdom of Alawa and Rajola. The city of Arjunanagara was the first Kitonese capital. 

Colonial expansion

At the height of colonialist expansion, the British and Dutch had colonized the nearby territories in modern-day Hesperonesia. As the Keika kingdoms became wary of the Western powers, they formed an alliance which became the predecessor of the modern Kitonese federation

Republican Era

The King of Kha Lohi was overthrown by Kilaitan Sasahwahan, who became the warlord of Kha Lohi. States who overthrew their kings joined him as the Kaika Confederacy, with its first capital at Kuman Matha. The Kaika Confederacy went to war with the Sakanese Crown, defeated its king with popular support in 1932. Sasahwahan adopted his nom de guerre, Ashuyin Kajekurun as his new name and became the first President of a peaceful, federal and free Kiton.

World War II

Languages

Kitonese

A dialect of Vedic Sanskrit imported during the Indic Age, the language known as Kithanawaidika ("Vedic speech of the land of Ki") was esteemed throughout Kiton when it became the court language of the Sakan Empire and was used by the upper classes. It  became liturgical langauge of Saihan Christianity, and was the language of the Kithanic Bible, or Se granthes. The Instrument of Federation designated the language as the national language of Kiton and renamed it Kitonese. Kitonese is spoken in professional situations, such as in the office; in federal media, in education and between unacquainted people. However, it is not a home language, as native languages tend to be spoken among family and friends, and its use has been on the decline since the 1990s in favour in Fuyaha Kitonese.

Fuyahan

Fuyahan, otherwise known as Fuyaha Kitonese (Kitonese of the Capital), is a koine language used in Kiton. It originated in KSN, where the population is extremely diverse with large numbers of Kaikas of different linguistic groups forming a standard dialect of communication.

Political divisions

The Kaika Confederacy is consists of federal entities, namely the states (negara) and the federal states (Rajanegara).

States

States are the entities of the Keika Confederacy which are represented in the Senate. These were the old kingdoms which were party to the Instrument of Confederacy and were promised self-government.

Federal territories

According to the Instrument of Confederacy, states are not allowed to add land to their territory without the consent of Congress, a stipulation to prevent conflict on territorial grounds between states. When the Kitonese government annexes land, it is provisionally governed as a federal territory and directly administered by the Confederacy until such a time as determined by a congressional committee that the territory is ready to be granted statehood or be fit to be divided between states. Tribal areas (blaissas) are subsumed within the Federal Territory, under whose authority tribal chiefs sit and are protected from other states. The federal territory of the Confederacy comprises about 65% of the land, but only 28% of the population, with a large urban population in Kota Sri Nakanejra.

Federal Territory of Alava and Rajola (1941 - 1944)

At the end of the Kithanic War in 1938, the Confederacy annexed all Sakanese territory and administered it as a provisional federal territory with its capital at Hwargadewa, the old Sakan capital. The northeastern Saihan states were eager to keep Alava-Rajola as a federal territory indefinitely. Giving their traditional enemies statehood would give them considerable power in Congress and also hinder maritime trade along the Injakulari River, the mouth of which the British and Sakans had held since the 18th century. They argued that the Sakanese territories, holding a large portion of the Kitonese north coast, would be better off under federal control and the profits of coastal maritime trade along the Sakanese coast be used to fund the federal government. The rest of the Confederacy, however, wished for the Sakanese to receive statehood to prevent divisions from occuring between the Sakanese and other Kaikas. The samitimats from the Kitonese southeast a compromise with the Saihans, establishing the Kitonese capital at the mouth of the Injakulari. In 1944, the Capital Act established the federal capital, Kota Sri Nakanejra and the legislative, judiciary and executive were all moved there. Simultaneously, Congress abolished the RNAS, which was succeded by the federal territories of Seyaula, Alawa and Chanakyakei, and the state of Solan-Hwakahan. Solan-Hwakahan was granted statehood on account of its significant Hwakahan majority. 

1944 - 1961

The territory of Alava-Rajola was split into the federal territories of Alawa, Bijayakaraehan, Seyaula and the island territory of Chanakyakei. Bijayakaraehan was located in northern Seyaula.

Politics

The Kaika Confederacy is a sui generis system of government, unique in the world. Whether or not it is a monarchy has been long debated. The head of state is the Sekatupati, translated variously as "President" or "Lord of the Federation" in different contexts, and is an elected office, though it is treated as a monarchy. This is because the Sekatupati is the highest ruler in the land, with princes subject under him. Therefore, he is elevated to the status of a noble. No republican revolution occured in Kiton, and the Confederacy was formed by a union of pre-federal kingdoms, now the princely states. Therefore the monarchies were not abolished but were adapted into the new federal system. There is no written constitution at the federal level, and the Sekatunasu (lit., federation-making), the founding document of the Confederacy, which was signed in 1821, and interpretations thereof, is used to derive all federal authority, alongside Acts of Parliament as well as executive orders by the Sekatupati. Lawful power within the country is shared between the Sekatupati and the individual state legislatures, as stated in the Sekatunasu. The country is governed by a bicameral parliament, known as Chakroha (Assemblage of the Realm). It is comprised of the Sahwa (Diet) and Samiti (House of Representatives). 


The President

According to the Instrument of Confederacy, the President inherits the lands of the Duke of Keikinekohori and thus is a noble. The President is endowed with wide ranging ceremonial and executive powers. He is elected by the Senate and approved by the Defence Council of the Federation.

The current President is Elias XI (Pikijai Thekungau).
