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 before 700 BCE. Kithanic mythological literature credits Prince Ki as the ancestor of the Kitonese people. He was a prince of the pre-Yamato state of Ki in Japan who had been sent by Susanewa-tu-bikasa, the sea-god, to the Kitonese island with his followers. The name Ki is the origin of the name Kaika, a Sanskrit term meaning scion of Ki. Prince Ki and his entourage landed near the foothills of Mt Mehameru in present-day Mehamerunegara, Alawa.
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 chau, the guardian spirits of the mountains; in some texts they were the giriyasurasas, the demons of the hills (this view was prevalent in the Indic age). The Keikas had a very deep respect for mountains, seeing them as the abode of the divine. They spread along the coast, leaving the centre of the island alone as sacred ground. 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 Yamato-period cousins, they were also very spiritiual. Indic age When Indians began to arrive in Kiton from the 4th century CE pre-Hindu Vedic religion and Indian rituals and statecraft. The Japonic clans began to slowly come together to form kingdoms, and they began to adopt the court languages as their own. As languages began to die out, there were left a handful of languages on the island, which remain to this day. The Kitonese south was the most heavily Indianized, while in the north people still lived in loose tribal confederations. This political system of loose conglomeration would be the basis of the modern Kitonese ideology of confederalism.
In the 2nd century CE, Christianity had spread into Kiton, where it remained popular in the east and began to take on an indigenous Keika character, known as Saihan Orthodox Christianity. The tribes which adhered to Christianity named themselves Saihans and joined the Sarnya Saihana confederacy, occupying the areas of modern Cholchei, Arunaha and Hwassu. Sarnya Saihana was the biggest polity in Kiton, but did not dominate the island. It largely kept to itself in the mountainous northeast, largely isolated by the Wamuatikiri mountains.
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.
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
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
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 Salamagrantha. 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, 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.
The Kaika Confederacy is consists of federal entities, namely the states (negara) and the federal territories (rajanegara).
States are the entities of the Keika Confederacy which are represented in the Senate.
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.
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 Sakans had held since the 18th century. They argued that the Sakanese territories, holding a large portion of the Kitonese west coast, would be better off under federal control and the profits of coastal maritime trade along the Sakanese coast be given to 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.
The head of government of the Kaika Confederacy is the Kitonese federal politics is centered around the idea of karajana, the "royalty of the legal person of the Kitonese state". Though officially a republic, many institutions, such as the RHK (Rajahiranakosha, Kitonese Sovereign Bank), Royal Kitonese Army (Rajarahsana) append Raja-, the prefix for "royal". Unlike in the West, no republican revolution occured in Kiton and the kings were generally popular in among the people, especially in Christian states where it was expected of the King to bear humility and deference to the people. Additionally, at the height of colonial expansion, most of the traditional kings were able to fight off the Dutch and British and did not sell themselves off to the Western powers. When the Keika Confederacy transitioned from a loose military alliance to a centralized federal government in 1935, the ideology of Karajanan was introduced to keep in with Kitonese tradition.
The Kitonese state is headed by the President (Sakatupati, Lord of the Federation) who, unlike in other presidential republics such as the United States, is invested with high ceremonial position as well as executive power, though the former is limited.
According to the Instrument of Confederacy, the President is the "Lord of the Federation and bearer of karājana (Sakatupatishca karājanano hwar'ā cās). 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.
