Hitani (火谷 Hitani or Itani?), officially the State of Hitani [1] is an archipelagic country located east of the main continent of Fosia. Situated in the western end of the Shendan Ocean, it consists of more than 3,720 islands that are broadly categorized into two main regions: Miyoshi and Heiwadai. The capital of Hitani is Chino, located on the island of Miyoshi; and its largest city is Asahikawa, located on the island of Heiwadai. Hitani shares a land border with Fenia and shares maritime borders with Atama and Jumia.

Hitani's location on the (Geographic name) and the Shendan Ocean makes the country prone to earthquakes and typhoons, but also endows it with abundant natural resources. Hitani has an area of 186,744 km² (72,102 sq mi). As of 2015, had a population of at least 60 million. As of August 2019, it is the twelfth-most populated country in Fosia. Multiple ethnicities and cultures are found throughout the islands. In prehistoric times, the Kaji and the Mizu tribes were some of the archipelago's earliest inhabitants. They were followed by successive waves of people that came by boat or canoe from East Fosian countries such as Zong and Fenia. Then, various competing maritime states were established under the rule of various leaders that later evolved in a unique system of a unitary dominant-party semi-directorial democracy under constitutional monarchy.

Etymology

The name Hitani comes from the numerous volcanoes found across the nation. In Hitanese, the name means "fire fields". The name was adopted in the early period of the 17th Century after the union of the islands of Miyoshi and Heiwadai occurred.As Hitani did not exist until the early period of the 17th Century, various names were used to describe the area. Zong fishermen refer the islands as 荒島 (Huāngdǎo) or "barren islands" due to the volcanic nature of the islands and its fragmented fiefdoms.

When the conglomeration of the Hitanese islands occurred under the rule of the first Shubō, Hideharu Sōga, the name 火場 (Hiba) was proposed but were later dropped since it was not a common word in the Hitanese language. Other names included 平大 (Heidai) and 御宿 (Onjuku) were also suggested, but were dropped out of favour due to its difficult transliteration to other languages, especially to its largest trading partner Zong.

Politics

Hitani has one of the most complicated systems in Adonia due to its unique Unitary dominant-party semi-directorial democracy under a constitutional monarchy. The current constitution of Hitani was adopted in 1679 after the consolidation of the Hitanese islands under Hideharu Sōga with a few amendments that were added over the years. It outlines basic and political rights of individuals and citizen participation in public affairs, divides the powers between the Government and the prefects while also defining federal jurisdiction and authority. There are three main governing bodies on the federal level: the unicameral parliament (legislative), the Council of Four (executive) and the Federal Court (judicial).

The unicameral parliament deals with matters pertaining to country-wide issues such as national infrastructure and the Federal Finance ministry. The parliament has 76 representatives who are elected on a system determined by each prefect; the distribution of seats are based on the population of each prefect. Members of both houses serve for 4 years and only serve as members of parliament part-time. However, through the Council of Four, each prefect may challenge any law passed by parliament and through initiatives, introduce amendments to the federal constitution, thus making Hitani a semi-directorial democracy.

Greater autonomy is placed on the four prefects headed by its own leader, which encompasses the executive Council of Four. In each prefect, there is a separate parliament determined by its predetermined system of voting. The prefects of Kaga and Yamatai elect their parliaments by proportional representation. In the prefects of Hiei and Shinano, the vote is divided in subdivisions and each subdivision elect its representatives using the First Past The Post (FPTP) system. Shinano is currently phasing out its current system and adopting proportional representation similar to Kaga and Yamatai.
