Vilaine, officially the Vilainian Republic (French: République de Vilaine) is a Federal Republic located in Northeast Maredoratica borders the countries of Prekonate, Austland, Turkiya, Hardenburgh and Whiskeasy. Vilaine has a population of 73 million people encompassing over 785,000 km² (305,000 mi²) of land.
Historical artifacts of Vilaine suggests that humans had roamed the area as much as 35,000 B.C., as evidence was founded and excavated outside of the Clairmont catacombs. The first order of governance was arranged in 256 A.D. as the Lysarian Kingdom emerged and was the dominant culture for a several centuries until a sub-cultural group known as the Tumovo People took control approximately 1570 A.D. until the official end in 1842, due to the Statue of Clairmont. Morivaine colonization contributed in 1715, expansion proved a point as it was the successor state of the Islamic Altyaiese Federation, as most colonization efforts weren't successful along with Whiskeasian efforts in the Beaufort Isles, the Concordian Peninsula and the Marmonian Sea. Along with mass-colonization, the Morivaine had succeeded in creating a state nearly a century later, along with controlling many settlers and natives. After the Statue of Clairmont, the Concert of Montpelier in 1848 declared the expansion of Vilaine into the Marmonian Sea and to the Eastern Ocean. The expansion was a failure only to several ports in the Eastern Ocean but was mainly successful to the Marmonian Sea that enacted trade across the sea by the 1880s. In 1907, Vilaine became independent with a federal constitution and a new source of government implemented in the Commonwealth. Since the independence, many Vilainians lived in a new sense of their country along with the economic rise of 2008.
Vilaine is associated with the Whiskeasian Commonwealth as an observer, member of the Maredoratic League, member of the Francophone Organisation and a signatory of the Martigues Agreement. Vilaine is famous for it's unique culture, nature, also for it's entertainment and tourism. Vilaine has a GDP per capita of $35,081, being one of the highest in the region and maintains a high standard of living within the Maredoratica region.
Historical artifacts of Vilaine suggests that the earliest humans had roamed the area as long as 35,000 B.C., as evidence was founded and excavated outside of the Liydawen catacombs. The first humans roamed the area through Hardenburgh and migrated much south and east. The earliest civilization in Vilaine was formed in the Beaufort Isles at around 13,000 B.C., although disputed claims denied this, as the first official civilization was founded near Zayande in Turkiya.
As the Zayande people roamed the south, they roamed north and later influenced a vast culture into the current borders of Prekonate. Vilaine was also the site of a land bridge that had connected the Beaufort Isles to the Hardenburghian city of Eastport. It had allowed many people of Germanic and Svarlgradian descent to move towards the land bridge and move up north to the borders of Milograd and Austland.
Climate and Geography
Vilaine is a representative democracy, with three branches of power: executive, legislative, and judicial. The President of Lunaria heads the executive branch and executes laws passed by the Congress, appoints the Cabinet, and is commander in chief of the armed forces. The president and vice-president run for office on the same ticket and are elected by direct vote for 4-year terms. The national legislature is bicameral, composed of a Senate, which has 55 members, and the Chamber of Deputies, with 235 members. Judicial authority rests with the Supreme Court of Justice's 24-members. They are appointed by a council composed of the President, the leaders of both houses of Congress, the President of the Supreme Court, and an opposition or non–governing-party member. The Court "alone hears actions against the president, designated members of his Cabinet, and members of Congress when the legislature is in session."
The president appoints the governors of the 15 Prefectures. Mayors and municipal councils administer the >300 municipal districts and Clairmont. They are elected at the same time as congressional representatives.
Vilaine has a multi-party political system. Elections are held every six years, alternating between the Presidential elections, which are held in years evenly divisible by four, and the Congressional and municipal elections, which are held in even-numbered years not divisible by four. "International observers have found that presidential and congressional elections since 1974 have been generally free and fair." The Central Elections Board (JCE) of 15 members supervises elections, and its decisions are unappealable.
Vilaine is divided into 15 Prefectures, of whom only one Clairmont is under a city-status, therefore in which all prefectures used to be colonial and autonomous subdivisions.
In 2008, the transport sector in Vilaine generated a turnover of about 115.8 billion Meticas, employing 1,455,700 persons in 158,430 enterprises. Regarding the national road network, in 1999 there were 1,045,381 km (649,570 mi) of serviceable roads in Vilaine, including 9,253 km (5,750 mi) of motorways, state-owned but privately operated by Du-Hoc. In 2005, about 38,767,000 passenger cars (600 cars per 1,020 people) and 6,105,000 goods vehicles circulated on the national road network. The national railway network, state-owned and operated by VRC, in 2000 totalled 19,428 km (12,072 mi) of which 66% is electrified, and on which 5,437 locomotives and railcars circulated. The national inland waterways network comprised 1,937 km (1,204 mi) of navigable rivers and channels in 2003.

Tourist hotspots in Vilaine are the Beaufort Isles and Clairmont, but the Lunarian government continues to promote and develop new tourist destinations, such as the Nine Lakes (Vilaine), Nine Lakes, Pyrenees, and the Concordian Mountains. Luskrev is, after Clairmont, the Vilainian city which attracts the most tourists (with eleven million tourists occupying the city's hotels in 2006, a number that grew 13.8%).
