Norpradia (Norpradian Dialect: Norpradia [norpra'dɪa]), officially the Republic of Norpradia (Norpradian Dialect: Norpradisch Republik [norpra'dɪʃ repu'bli:k]) is a country in Northern Europe, it is next to United Kingdom, Norway, Germany, Denmark and Netherlands. It is in the European Union, NATO, OECD, and WTO, and always considerated in the Western portion of Europe. It is only de jure country in the island of Nordensel located in the North Sea.

Norpradia has 113,870.72km2, and a population of 11,206,409 people, but with a population growth of only 0.15%. Its capital and largest city is Lithoriburg with a population of 1.893.441. Other major cities are usually a region capital, such as Jesvërg and Rottönfurt.

Norpradia is a high-income developed country, with a high standard of democracy, life, freedom, peacefulness, and liberties.

Etymology

The name "Norpradia" is the facilitated pronunciation of the name "Nordiaprada", the name of the union between Nordia and Prada, created in 1881. By the 1890s, the preferred name of the country is the modern version.

The name of the island, however, is Nordensel, from the German "Nordinsel", meaning "Northern Island".

History

17th century

In the 17th century, the region that is now Norpradia was divided into several kingdoms and small provinces, all of them being governed by different kings, but having a different area of influence, called Ennflutless Zone (Influence Zone), but the largest and most powerful were Nordia (dominated by England), Prada (dominated by Sweden), Rödsomor (dominated by the Holy Roman Empire) and Saint Patrick (dominated by the Celts).

In 1648, the 20 years war took place, between Nordia, Prada, Rödsomor and Naomh Pádraig (Saint Patrick) for more influence. This war lasted until 1673, with no winner, but no loser.

In 1674, with the Treaty of Paris of 1674, all areas of influence of the main countries were united to form four countries, avoiding any other war. But this treaty wasn't enforced until March of 1685.

18th Century

The Celtic occupation zone, called Naomh Pádraig (Saint Patrick) wasn't economically well, every day, the colony/occupation zone was more dependent on the German and the British zones, so in 1724, a three-sided civil war took place, called the Saint Patrician Civil War in Saint Patrick, between the Nordians (British supporters), the Röds (German supporters) and the Born to be Free (independence supporters). The war lasted until 1730, and the Nordians won. On 5th May, 1730, Nordia annexed Saint Patrick.

In 1777, Nordia created its first counties, shortly after in 1782, Prada did the same.

After annexing Saint Patrick, a war between Rödsomor and Nordia was inevitable. And this happened in 1783, with the Nordian Question, where Nordia declared war on Rödsomor, but they knew they were going to lose, so they simply surrendered.

Nordia and Prada's relationship was getting better and better.

19th Century

In the 19th century, Norpradia was attacked by the Norpradian Pest of 1862-1864, where an outbreak of an unknown disease (now being H3N8), spread around the country due of poor hygiene on horses, and since Norpradia at the time was 91% rural, the pandemic spread easily. The estimated death toll is about 1,500,000 to 2,300,000 and more than 1,700,000 left the country. Norpradia's population in those years fell from 30% to 40%.

In 1881, the Kingdom of Prada and the Democratic Federal Republic of Nordia created a referendum, where the question "Would you like that Nordia and Prada come together and formed a single country?" was asked, and 73% of the countries' population voted "yes", and the unification took place on November 3, 1883, where is now a national holiday since 1901.

Pre-World War I

Until World War I, Norpradia was transforming into a more modern society. Women's rights became essential, so in 1912, Norpradia gave suffrage for all women in all situations (universal suffrage), being the 4th in the world to do so.

Rural exodus also became clear at the start of the 20th century. In the 1860s only 13% of the Norpradian population lived in cities, but in 1919, this number grew to 39%, achieving 50% in 1928.

WWI

In World War I, Norpradia helped the Allies with supplies and soldiers, where around 73,900 died, but the country remained neutral.

Inter-War Period

In the Inter-War Period, Norpradia became an industrialized country and had a population boom of 23% from 1900 to 1930.

WWII

In World War II, Nazi Germany declared war on Norpradia on December 18, 1942, occupying the southern part of the country. In 1944, with the war ending, the southern part of the country was again controlled by Norpradia, about 470,000 to 550,000 Norpradians died in WWII.

Cold War

In the Cold War, many feared that communism would win the elections, so the government banned all communist and socialists parties, and only allowed them to return in the elections in 1993, shortly after the end of the Soviet Union.

21th Century

The 21st century is known to be the century that developed Norpradia. The HDI changed from 0.780 in 1990 to 0.923 in 2019, but the population has not grown as much, from 10,801,883 in 1990 to 11,206,409 in 2017.

With the European immigration crisis since 2015, Norpradia has around 709,040 immigrants, being 42% European (mainly from Kosovo, Romania, Poland, Russia, Italy, and the United Kingdom) and 32% from Africa and the Middle East (mainly from Senegal, Sudan, South Sudan, Tanzania, Nigeria, and Libya), the other 26% are mainly from China, the United States, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Haiti, Malaysia, Indonesia, Brazil, Mexico, Venezuela, and Colombia.

Several new states want to form, such as the State of Villerm, in the south of Prada.
