The Federation of Kravatya is a newly established nation consisting of 4 mayor states: Claur, Khulus, Sveidy and Zarut. Sveidy is the capital city of Kravatya, as well as head state of operations. The federation is currently lead by Head Leader Barlavo Nurik.
The word Kravatya is loosely translated in poukslandic to "Land of the seven" (Krav deriving from Kraven, which means seven; and atya, deriving from aeyen, which means land or nation). The seven in the name represents the 7 mountains and mounts in the 4 states (Ihu, Kalie, Udö, Nembray, Tonapü, Nük and Mära).
The word Kravatya was suggested to be used in place of the poukslandic name Kravenae to create a sensation of difference from their poukslandic counterpart.
Before it's independence, Kravan territory used to be part of Pouksland. The state of Claur was one of the first 4 cities to be founded, while Khulus, Sveidy and Zarut were founded during Pouksland's Great Expansion.
Recent changes in Poukslandic government in 2014 started to displease the 4 states, so they gathered and united under the Kravatya banner, and sent a letter to the Poukslandic government, requesting for independence. Pouksland accepted and officially declared the 4 cities non-poukslandic.
Since the formation of Kravatya, April the 29th was marked as "Federaytka Svata" (Federation Day).
The average daily temperature of Kravatya varies over the seasons from −8 to 7 °C (18 to 45 °F), with winter and spring presenting colder temperatures. South of the country has been reported to be warmer than the north. Predominant biomes include Tundra and Alpine.
Being a coastal country, Kravatya's fauna is mostly composed of aquatic life and coast birds, though land mammals are also common. Kravatya has no native species of amphibians or reptiles. Most famous mammals include the puff-tailed hare, the kravan mountain goat and the short nosed wolf. Marine mammals include the albino seal, the short-horned narwhal and the Udö dolphin. Other marine animals from Kravatya include the kravan striped marlin, the bluetailed ray and the yellow spotted shark. Birds are very common animals in kravan coasts and forests; these include the khuluan bluebird, kukunas, the red necked pelican and the diving hawk.
Whaling is strictly controlled in Kravatya, only being permitted during festive occasions and resupplying for whale meat sellers. Whale meat commerce is strictly controlled and only allowed during winter and spring.
Most of the kravan population is poukslandic in origin, reaching a 64%, while immigrants take up a 23%. Children and infants born after mid 2014 are considered fully kravan natives, which take a 7% of the total population. Most immigrants are reported to come from Boreo, Azelia, Luthionia and Minkal.
As shown in the list above, Sveidy serves as the main state, which's capital, Korsa, serves as capital for Kravatya too.
Kravatya's official language is Poukslandic, both spoken and written. English and German are compulsory languages in education, just like Pouksland. A small section of Claur speaks Guandmarian.
Despite not being an official language, parts of Kravatya speak Kravakian, an unofficial language deriving from poukslandic which slightly changes grammar, pronunciation and writing. This unofficial language is becoming popular in the north, and it has been petitioned for Kravakian to be recognized as an official language, as well as Kravatya's second tongue.
The most predominant religion in Kravatya is athesim, with kravan atheist population reaching at 65%. Kravans have been categorized in the following groups:
Just like Pouksland, Kravatya is a very secular country.
The Kravan government is based on a communist system; with an attempt to merge democratic concepts and ideas. Unlike the Poukslandic government, Kravatya has implemented an all-public electoral system to choose a Head leader, which's top votes are then analyzed and chosen by the Council of four. The government of Kravatya is constructed with 3 components:
-Head Leader: Represents and leads the country, also manages the remaining 2 components.
-Council of four: A representative of each state gathers in order to discuss decisions and matters regarding the 4 states.
-Central House: The government building located in Korsa, Sveidy, which serves as basic government which deals with public matters.
The Head Leader is Barlavo Nurik, who was elected for his military and political background, believing he was most fit for being leader of Kravatya.
The Kravan Armed Forces (Kravatya Armata Forzak) currently consists on groups of poukslandic B.E.A.R.S. who volunteered to join the new country, as well as serve it's military. Although small, the kravan government has funded 40% of all profits into the military.
The KAF restricts control not only in the national armada, but on the police as well. A strict, well-funded and powerfull division of the KAF known as the National Kravan Police (Aeyed Kravatya Polazza) which works in all 4 states. It's main headquarters are located in northern Zarut.
Foreign Relations Edit
Being a recent country, Kravatya isn't a member of any parties or organizations. However, Kravatya is one of the three members of the Kravan-Tannarabian-Poukslandic alliance.
National Anthem Edit
Kravatya's National Anthem, known as "Ret Mërk por ret Federaytka" (The march of the federation) was composed by Rokko Hüttie, one of the main counselors of the Pouksland Palace of Music (Poksrae Palazzyi por Mosika). The anthem was finished and implanted in 17 of May, 2014.

Due to it's recent independence from it's brother nation, Kravatya shares a lot of Poukslandic culture, including music, gastronomy and arts.
Despite this, "Kravan culture" has been referred more to the specific art, cuisine and music native to the 4 states. Including this is the Kravan National Theatre (Kravatya Aeyed Teyätri, originally Pouksland National Theatre) located in Khulus, famous for it's concerts and events.
One of the traditional legends native to kravan territory states is the legend of Karri-mïnu, a magic elf which walks the streets, rewarding children for their good deeds and generosity with candy. Kravatya also shares the poukslandic legend of Crez-Myugar, a giant magic walrus that grants wishes to those who find a special stone.

Cuisine EditBeing a coastal country, Kravatya is one of the main fishing product exporters in Mazeria; almost 47% of the countries earnings come from commercial sales of sea products. Due to this, most of Kravan cuisine specializes in seafood and fish. Kravan Cuisine also contains dishes based on agricultural products, such as beef and vegetables. Here's a list of famous Kravan dishes:

Portion of kravan cuisine is also influenced by foreign culinary due to influence from immigrants who worked on restaurants and food stands during the increase of fishing jobs. Some dishes include Luthionian, Azelian and Minkalian influence in cooking and preparing, like Pärpandi, pan fried potato slices with a mayonnaise based sauce.
Kravatya only holds 2 sports: The Mazerian World Cup and Köhli. Though not being an official sport, Kravatya holds all sorts of tournaments for winter sports (Skiing, surfboarding, ice-skating and sledding).
