The Theodinnes (Teodino: Tiyodinas/Teodinas), officially the Republic of the Theodinnes (Republika ng Tiyodinas/Teodinas), is a country located on the continent of Xianbia, with Menali as its capital city. The country reflects diverse indigenous Xianbian cultures from its many regions, as well as Aspenish, Penglai and Heloan influence from its colonizers and neighbors.
Teodinos are mostly of Xianbian descent. Some Teodinos are partly of Aspenish, Heloan, Penglai, and Afran ancestry.
A former colony of Aspenia, the Theodinnes has many affinities with the Western world(Auroran version?). Teodino and Ingliz are the official languages. Around 12 vernacular languages are considered co-official in their respective provinces. However, only Teodino and Ingliz are used as the offficial media of instruction within the whole nation.
Politics and Government
The Theodinnes has a presidential, unitary form of government (with some modification; there are some autonomous region largely free from the national government), where the President functions as both head of state, and head of government, and is commander-in-chief of the armed forces. The president is elected by popular vote to a single six year term, during which time she or he appoints, and presides over the cabinet.
The bicameral Congress is composed of a Senate, serving as the upper house whose members are elected to a six year term, and a House of Representatives serving as the lower house, whose members are elected to a three year term, and are elected from both legislative districts, and through sectoral representation.
The judicial power is vested in the Supreme Court, composed of a Chief Justice as its presiding officer, and fourteen associate justices, all appointed by the Teodino President from nominations submitted by the Judicial and Bar Council.
