The Commonwealth of Nord (Nordic: ᚴᚭᛙᛙᚭᚿᚢᛆᛚᚦ ᛐᚢ ᚿᚭᚱᛐ tr. Commonwealth du Nord), usually just called Nord (Nordic: ᚿᚭᚱᛐ tr. Nord) or The Commonwealth (Nordic: ᛚᛁ ᚴᚭᛙᛙᚭᚿᚢᛆᛚᚦ tr. le Commonwealth), is a Semi-Constitutional Parliamentary Monarchy located on the continents of Edthiel and Valcinia. It is bordered on the west by the Mer de l'Ouest and on the east by the Mer Noire. It's capital and largest city is Loire.

The Commonwealth is a unitary semi-constitutional parliemantary monarchy, with the head of government and state being the ruling monarch. The country's largest divisions are Commonwealth States, of which there are three; Nord, Sud, and Royaume de l'Ouest. These States are further broken down into provinces. Additionally, the Commonwealth has a variety of colonial possessions referred to as Territoires Royaux or Royal Territories.

The Commonwealth's origins trace back to the Nord Realm and later État Royal. Following the transition to the État Royal by Queen Nathalie I, Nord launched a war against the Southern Kingdom, finally unifying the two people of the White Straits. The Commonwealth's expansion didn't end there, as the colonization of the islands of Île de Cornes and Île du Soleil came in the following decades.

Eventually, in the late-16th century, Queen Queen Renée I, then Grand Duchess of the Black Mountain, launched a short-lived War of Succession called the 1588 Exchange to successfully take the throne. Not long after, in 1608, the Commonwealth was declared, starting a new age of Colonialism that peaked in the mid-19th century with the Scramble for Luceras.

The Commonwealth has been a member of the Cordial League's security council since the Five Years War and maintains active relations with Syrasia.

Etymology


Norr is widely believed to come from the ancient Norr word of Norður ("North"), which was used to refer to the northern tribes that became dominant in the 10th century. Over the centuries, the name had evolved to the word Nor, which eventually became popularized as Norr.
