>> Antiquity to Renaissance History <<
Orma was semi-independent until it was invaded by the Breislandic forces of Engelbert von Schlieffen during the Breislandic Revolutionary Wars. The invasion of Orma started the War of the Second Coalition, pitting a coalition of Orma, Burawa, and Volisania among others. Engelbert was eventually defeated in the Battle of the Strait of Cilicia in 1798 by the Volisan Navy, forcing Breislandic troops to withdraw from South Kaftia. After the Breislandic were expelled, power was seized in 1801 by Daraaran Gaduulaa, an Orman military commander who crowned himself Emperor of Orma, taking the name of Ibsaa. He massacred the Diigaluu dynasty and established a dynasty that was to rule Orma until the revolution of 1886 which established the shortly lived First Republic of Orma.
The First Republic of Orma was a shortly lived democracy that had been toppled by a coalition of royalists and Breislandic forces that had later set up Grand Orma. Grand Orma was a weak constitutional monarchy which subsequently became a Breislandic Protectorate. During the Great Adonian War, Orma was invaded by the Echian Empire and occupied briefly until the fall of Echia. A new revolution broke out after the war in 1951, establishing the Republic of Orma. The new government expelled Breislandic soldiers and bureaucrats and ended Breislandic presence, nationalized the railways, exiled King Hawwii and his family, and declared itself a republic.
Orma is a prominent regional power in the Mesogean Sea and South Kaftia, and retains its historic status as a middle power in international affairs. Orma has the second largest economy in South Kaftia, the fifth-largest in the MOZ. Orma is a founding member of the Adonian Community and the Kaftian Association – which merged with the Kaftian Union in 1995 – and is an associate member of the Mesogean Cooperation Organization.

The climate is primarily a humid subtropical climate. However, the southern coastal regions enjoy a milder Mesogean climate at places. Hot and humid summers are typical, except at the highest elevations. The entire country, including the northern mountains, receives moderate to heavy precipitation, which varies from 1,000 mm in central Orma to approximately 1,900 mm around the northeast part of the country. The degree to which the weather of a certain region of Orma is subtropical depends on the latitude, its proximity to the Mesogean Sea, and the elevation.
Government and politics
Orma is a unitary parliamentary republic with its constitution based on the Breislandic constitution. The nominal head of state is the President of the Republic, who is elected by the Parliament for a five-year term. According to the Constitution, executive power is exercised by the President and the Government. However, the Constitutional amendment of 1966 curtailed the President's duties and powers to a significant extent, rendering the position largely ceremonial; most political power is thus vested in the Prime Minister, Orma's head of government. The position is filled by the current leader of the political party that can obtain a vote of confidence by the Parliament. The President of the Republic formally appoints the Prime Minister and, on his recommendation, appoints and dismisses the other members of the Cabinet.
Legislative powers are exercised by a 537–member elective unicameral Parliament. Statutes passed by the Parliament are promulgated by the President of the Republic. Parliamentary elections are held every four years, but the President of the Republic is obliged to dissolve the Parliament earlier on the proposal of the Cabinet, in view of dealing with a national issue of exceptional importance. The President is also obliged to dissolve the Parliament earlier, if the opposition manages to pass a motion of no confidence. The voting age is 19.
Since the Great Adonian War, Orman politics have been dominated by the liberal-conservative National Party and the social-democratic Movement for Orma. Other parties represented in the Parliament of Orma include the right-wing populist New Orman Party, the Communist Party, Green Party and the Aristocratic Communalist Party.
