The nation of Epsolonia (Espiona in native Vencinian), is an imperial nation based off a coast in Planet Bob. It is composed of 5 separate states, Epsolonis Centro to the north, Epsolonis Libre surrounding Epsolonis Centro, Leonis to the east, Violetis to the south east, and Concentris to the far south. It also has a colony on Planet Steve.
Epsolonia is one of the world's most geographically diverse nations, the product of heavy volcanic activity and ancient glacial movement. Epsolonia is among one of the few nations with an active "central port" with direct access to every other nation in Planet Bob, and is a leading nation in the development of transportation-based technology and general developments in suburban growth.
The nation was founded by nearby soldiers fighting in the second great war, looking to leave the conflict and establish their own international power. 5 separate nations were created in the same area, and in the best interests of growth and prosperity, merged themselves as 1 nation, Epsolonia. The imperial charter was written soon after formation, and international recognition followed shortly after.
A decade after the signing of the charter, Epsolonia prospered under their new allies in The White Delegation. The at-the-time government of Epsolonia had a major role in alliance itself and became renown through Planet Bob. Disputes between the higher-legislation of The White Delegation and Epsolonian Council to The White Delegation resulted in the initiation of The White Delegation's charter-given right to remove the high legislation from power, and the Epsolonian Council to The White Delegation assumed command of The White Delegation, and merged the entire alliance with another close friend alliance, GRAN. After the merge, the Auric Armada was formed, and an Epsolonian Council to the Auric Armada was formed, in high legislation. About half a year had passed before the Auric Armada begin to fall in political power, and disbanded. Later, the Epsolonian government later chose to become a member of another alliance based in the Orange Trade Sphere, by the name of TORN. Epsolonia currently has only a single representative to TORN, rather than a council seeing as no larger amounts of represenatives are needed for a low-based member of TORN.
The nation of Epsolonia has survived through many wars throughout its life, and takes pride in its military ability. The Epsolonian Military has had major roles in the Golden Sabres War, the GATO-Continuum war, and Great War V. The nation of Epsolonia also has full rights to nuclear weapons, though not in the top five percent of all nations. Epsolonian scientists bases in Epsolon, the capitol, were able to discover a new means of acquiring nuclear weapons, without the need for the mass amounts of infrastructure, technology and land that many other nations must reach before finally discovering the technology required for nuclear weapons. Epsolon takes great pride in being one of the few nations with such a technological breakthrough, and is a sure sign of the military capability and technological mastery of Epsolonian scientists. A rather large section of the Epsolonian budget is spent on military, and Epsolonis has a rather large military for its size.
A majority of Epsolonia is yet to be developed. Epsolonia has a large land mass, yet most of it is mixed forest, low mountain, and the occasional city ruins, which are the last remnant of towns once prospering, turned into smoldering rubble.
Violetis: Most of the higher mountain ranges reside in the south east location, farthest from the coast. The highest mountain in Epsolonia, named "Tepic Tlan", meaning "Top of the Land" in native Vencinian, is a heavily mined, yet heavily terraced area, with relatively high population density for such a remote location. The rest of the South Eastern mountain ranges are mostly relatively small peaks with no real population, though most of it is believed to be under military control. Satellite images show many trails and numerous vehicles, buildings, and tunnel entrances located near the city of Violroy (Violet).
Leonis: Farther to the west, near the rapidly-descending area of Lenois, is heavily forested, and filled with features ranging from small cliffs to steep,thousand feet drops. Near the coastal area of Leonis, lies the city of Leon.
Epsolonis Libre: Farther north of Leon, lies Epsolonis Libre, or "Outer Epsolon", which is mostly flat forest, and military territory.
Epsolonis Centro: To the North East is Epsolonis Centro, or "Central Epsolon". Here, lies the capitol of Epsolon, and the metropolitan area surrounding it, as well as highest concentration of abandoned, decaying, semi-destroyed, and halfway constructed buildings. The area was once a thriving paradise, spotted with cranes and suburban development, until the nuclear war of July 10. Now, it is a hazardous location with many areas shut down due to pockets of radiation, nuclear waste, and contaminated soil. Though, the area is dangerous, the center of it is now restored to its original shape, and the outer areas have been abandoned, the center is a thriving utopia of though and culture.
Concentris: To the distant south, is Concentris. Most of it is flat, but you will occasionally find a cliff or small mountain. Small pockets of forest, most of it is just grass and lakes. Near the center of the area, is the city of Concentra.
The Epsolonian government is based on a unique set of leaders and sub leaders.
The government of Epsolonia is made up of 7 separate parties, and have their own respective views on aspects of government.
National Progressive Party (NPP): The National Progressive Party recently took over as the most influential political party when the Modular Development Party began to slowly fade away. NPP members believe that a strong central government is necessary for the well being of its people. The NPP currently controls the entire Raydence. The NPP is currently the largest political party in Epsolonia.
Optionalist Party (OP) The Optionalist party has long been one of the most influential political parties in Epsolonia. Although their numbers are relatively small, their political prowess and ability to flex to its peoples' needs have long been favored in government. The Optionalists believe that without the ability to accept change, it's people can not adapt and survive in the ever changing world. The OP is currently the 2nd largest political party.
External Action Party (EAP): The External Action Party is one of the medium power parties, and also, one of the oldest political parties. Their belief in idea that nations must take any necessary role to keep their ties with neighbors. This has kept an EAP representative as Primé Extensivo since the nation was first created. The EAP is currently the 5th largest political party.
Revolutionist Reform Party (RRP): The Revolutionist Reform Party, although one of the older parties, has long been relatively quiet, despite the name of their party. Their beliefs that immediate change must constantly happen in order to keep one step ahead of an enemy has kept an RRP representative as Primé Guerrero for about sixty percent of the nation's history. The RRP is currently the 6th largest political party.
Modular Development Party (MDP): The Modular Development Party was once the single most influential party in Epsolonia, but after the death of many key members, due to age, the MDP has slowly been falling in power, though their influence is still quite high. Their belief that things must happen slowly and build up to their current levels, while monitoring development in other areas of the government are highly desired. The MDP is currently the 3rd largest political party.
Democratic Reform Party (DRP): The Democratic Reform Party is the newest political party, believing that the nation would be a much better place if a Democratic, or Democratic-like system of government were put in place. Although their ideas are not the most popular, and their members are low, they still manage to contain medium amounts of representatives in government. The DRP is currently the 7th largest political party.
Internal Focus Party (IFP): The Internal Focus Party, like the OP, has long been an influential political party. Their numbers have been increasing steadily in the past few years, and many predict the IFP to take over as 3rd post popular party. Their specialties in internal affairs, and belief that we must focus on our own nation, and not others, is a rather disputed idea, but many believe that Epsolonia would be better off just taking care of its own people, and stop taking as big a part in foreign activity. The IFP is currently the 4th largest political party.

Epsolonia is more agriculture based than anything else. It is world renown for cattle, and regionally famous for it's spice production. It also harvests small amounts of wheat, sugar cane, and has a few tree farms in Violetis. It's mineral resources are relatively small, composing of coal near Concentris. In the mountains of Leonis, you can find small amounts of marble. Uranium, Aluminum, Iron, and most of the Coal, Oil, Lumber, Sugar, Pigs, Water, and Uranium are imported.
Epsolonia, although importing 100% of its oil, 90% of the oil does not go into vehicle activity. The nationalized oil company, EpsoPetrol Harvesting Corp. has a single rig 3 miles from land. EpsoPetrol Refining Corp. which is an extension of the same company, is in charge of the 4 refineries dispersed throughout the country, since almost all imported oil is crude. EpsoPetrol Stations Corp. is the extension of gas stations throughout Epsolonia. All vehicles in Epsolonia are hydrogen powered. There are 2 models of stations. The A model houses 2 double sided sub-stations that pump hydrogen. It also houses a small convenience store. The B model houses 8 double sided hydrogen sub-stations. It also has a large multi-use convenience store. Epsolonia has the 4th largest Hydrogen harvesting center in the world. Most of the petroleum goes into plastic production and special purpose vehicles.
