Selona is a tiny, developing, and maturing nation with citizens primarily of Mixed ethnicity whose religion is Jainism. It is a backwards nation when it comes to technology and many refer to it unkindly as a 'Third World Nation'. Its citizens pay moderately high tax rates and they are somewhat unhappy in their work environments as a result. The citizens of Selona work diligently to produce Uranium and Wine as tradable resources for their nation. It is an aggressive country that some say has an itch for war. Selona is currently researching nuclear technology for the use of nuclear power plants but believes nuclear weapons should be banned. The military of Selona has been positioned at all border crossings and is arresting all drug traffickers. Selona allows its citizens to protest their government but uses a strong police force to monitor things and arrest lawbreakers. It has an open border policy, but in order for immigrants to remain in the country they will have to become citizens first. Selona believes in the freedom of speech and feels that it is every citizen's right to speak freely about their government. The government gives foreign aid when it can, but looks to take care of its own people first. Selona will not make deals with another country that has a poor history of inhuman treatment of its citizens.
The nation of Selona was founded January 24, 2008 by the Concordis Conventus ex Selonan Patricii (United Assembly of Selonan Patricians). Shortly after the establishment of a transitional government, the Concordis Conventus fought a war of conquest with non-aligned nations and was victorious, but the public was unhappy with the practices of the government and demanded something more substantial and leadership with a tempered bloodlust, leading the House of Corell to establish the monarchy, with their head, Ceris Corell, becoming ruler of Selona.
The Concordis Conventus still exists, yet in a diminished capacity. It is no longer the highest power in the nation, but the Concordis Conventus heads the ministries of the country, including the military, trade, foreign relations, government accountability, intelligence, education, and many smaller ministries. Some of the citizenry feel that having the patricians still in power may lead to a coup, yet Corell has been able to keep the nobles in check within the young and growing nation.
