Kitsuneki was originally a non-existent nation, with many agrarian tribes and few nomadic tribes, the species within the land are Kitsunemimi's, ookamimi's, nekomimi's, etc. and this divide of species created tensions between the tribes and caused minor battles to occur within the land. Though this divide made the tribes join confederacy's with the tribes that have the same species which made battles develop into bigger battles, and once these confederacy's gave way for kingdoms representing the species. Which made the battles develop into a war between the kingdoms, these wars were known as the " Republican War". The war lasted for 50 years as the fronts barely moved, though kingdoms one by one fell to the Kitsuneki Kingdom. This is the reason why the majority of the population is Kitsunemimi's.
With the Kitsuneki Kingdom capitulating all the other kemonomimi kingdoms. The nations population was not happy with having a monarch that only supported one species and not the many others. So the nation went through major revolts until the monarchs had to do something. A government reformation where Monarchy of Kitsuneki will not make national legislations or pass and veto laws. The bicameral government shall have power over the nation, called the Kitsuneki National Assembly, this is made of an upper house where members are called Councillors, and a lower house where members are called Representatives. Parties are often elected by their goals and ideologies of the people, usually representing the species the nation has. The monarchy also has boosted civil rights and had started to be less authoritative and more democratic within the "Age of Sentiments", where political reformations were taking place.
The nations leader is now ruled by a Prime Minister and their party with their power limited by the Kitsuneki National Assembly with the Monarchy being a symbol of pride of the people and have some power in the nation. The leaders strongly encourage Shinto practices to emphasize the Monarchs as divine beings. Nationalising the religion.
Kitsuneki was a small tribe consisting of kitsunemimi, whom were loyal to the Akagi Family. The tribe during 750 M.Y. developed into a kingdom, trading with other Kemonomimi kingdoms within the land. Until one of the kingdoms declared war on another Kingdom in 872 M.Y. (The Skirmish of 872), which setted up a chain reaction within the Kemonomimi land that spreaded and involved most of the Kingdoms within the land (The Kemono War). Kitsuneki had no allies since they were apart of no confederacy, though they allowed people from warring kingdoms to seek shelter in the capital or towns of Kitsuneki. The kingdom grew more and more while other kingdoms grew weaker, until the murder of 2 Akagi family members in 920 M.Y. . The couple were in a park until a rogue Usagimimi stabbed the two couple viciously, the murderer claimed links to the Usagimimi kingdom and had committed seppuku for killing a member of the Akagi family. Though this then started the Republican Vendetta (920-922 M.Y.). Where the Kitsunemimi kingdom declared war on the Usagimimi Kingdom for the killing of the Royal family, the Usagimimi was expecting an easy battle but they were blind as they were weakened by the Kemono War, they were annexed in 922 M.Y. .
Their allies then declared war on the Kitsunemimi Kingdom and the kingdoms whom feared that the Kitsunemimi Kingdom may become powerful all declared war on them, which then started the Republican War in 922 M.Y. . Kingdom after kingdom was taken over and soon in the course of 50 years (972 M.Y.). The Kitsunemimi Kingdom reunites the kingdoms into one family. Though the war efforts caused a lot of economical problems and unemployment. And a lot of tensions between kemonomimi's were growing because of the Monarchy
In order to protect the Akagi family and the kingdom, the nation adopts republicanism into their system creating a constitutional monarchy in 978 M.Y. The Kitsunemimi kingdom then renamed themselves into the Republic of Kitsuneki, the nation developed inclusiveness among the minority groups of Kitsuneki and the nation was benefitting from the system. The country managed to re stabilize their economy in 1000 M.Y. and moved onto improving the life in Kitsuneki in order to have people live together in a Republic with no poverty and crime. Though they are still fixing the nation and are now moving onto globalizing their markets.
Much of the population is made up of Kitsunemimi’s, this was because of the Republican War which lead to the battle between a lot of kingdoms within the region and has lead to other Kemonomimi species to be a minority within the Constitutional Monarchy, Kitsuneki has always developed a culture of accepting people of different backgrounds, cultures, races, religion, etc. Kemonomimi's are humanoid people who possesses animal-like features, such as a tail, ears or horns. The word Kemonomimi, if you break it up would mean "animal ear", 獣 (kemono, “animal”) + 耳 (mimi, “ear”).
Kitsunemimi's are humans with fox counterparts such as a fox tail and fox ears, if a Kitsunemimi's with more tails have a higher authority, and the highest authority would have 9 tails, they are also experts in sorcery and have greater mana than other Kemonomimi species in Kitsuneki.
Okamimimi's are humans as well but with wolf counterparts such as a kitsumemimi, with wolf ears and a wolf tail, okamimimi's are known for their warrior spirit and their respect to the authority, they would most likely die in honor for their nation and not fall into enemy hands.
Nekomimi's as you may already guess, are human, with cat counterparts like a cat tail and cat ears. They are known for their fishery in Kitsuneki and drive the huge fish industry in Kitsuneki.
Usagamimi are also, humans but with rabbit features such as a rabbit scut and ears. They are known for their agricultural industry as they are expert in farming as well as acrobat, making them useful assets to be in the military, such as scouts, assassins, etc.
Herajikamimi are a race in Kitsuneki with with elk-like traits, usually are known for their archery.
Umamimi are known to be fast as they have horse-like traits, they were born to have greater agility than any race in Kitsuneki.
Gesshiruimimi are a race with rodent-like traits, they are usually smaller than most people in Kitsuneki.
Kumamimi have bear-like traits, they are mostly a fierce and aggressive species.
Waibānmimi are a race with dragon-like traits, they may have less pronounced traits and those with more pronounced traits are given a much more higher status. The traits may include, but are not limited to, smaller sharpened ears which may or may not manifest, horns of various shapes, and a tail.
About 20% of the population are Seniors, 25% are youths and 55% are in the workforce. Within the workforce about 1.5% of the people are within the Kitsuneki Republican Forces. Just about 370 thousand people are unemployed which is about 5% of the population of Kituneki. The population is mostly centered around international markets with farmers growing crops in Kinatu or other small villages and selling it in Kasaki or Kashani. Though there are villages that like to be cut off from diverse cities or towns and markets due to either conservative beliefs or freedom of religion in Kitsuneki. These villages would often provide themselves with food and other necessities rather than rely on currency or trade to get those goods. Majority of the people who live in many of the diverse cities in Kitsuneki believe in Shinto, though majority of Buddhist followers live in the agricultural town of Kinatu, people who followed nature religions or other beliefs mostly lived in closed off communities.
Kitsuneki focuses on naval and land, it has no means of having a budget for an air force since with their current technology, balloons would be vunerable to arrows or land units. The government doesn't invest heavily on defense as the political party believe that educating citizens will lead Kitsuneki into the future, and that defense would be our 2nd priority to comfort the people whom live in Kitsuneki. Their best forces are the The Royal Azure Sentinels or RAS for short as they protect diplomats and other high figures in Kitsuneki, though they have only 1,000 personnel in the branch. These Sentinels are trained from 3 or 6 and for the rest of their lives if their parents are willing to allow it. This though questions people who are in political parties that uproot more civil right as this doesn't give the child the right to decide.
The government has changed from absolutism to republicanism, in the hopes of maintaining peace between different groups of people and different beliefs. This was due to their immigration policies, allowing people from outside to move into Kitsuneki and its conquest that lead to the present-day y borders of Kitsuneki. The Republic has allowed people from abroad to stay within Kitsuneki's borders and become a naturalised citizen, the government has been suppressing right-wing beliefs or alt-right and promoting globalism and an inclusive nation.
This has lead Kemonomimi's within the region to be more acceptant of other people and majority of the Assembly is made of centre, centre-left and left-wing parties. Patriots, Alt-Right groups that support the rebirth of the Sakuran Kitsune Empire and other right wing parties don't have any major presence within the Assembly.
This all varies with the nations political parties being elected, some political parties might be aggressive to authoritative regimes, some may have tolerance to the types of ideologies a foreign government has and some may embrace other nations, for the moment Kitsuneki has wanted to only globalize their markets and maybe progress into being neutral with autocrats and friendly with constitutional monarchies, though they will be willing to be allies with any government in the continent of Acalas to hopefully develop Acalas into a peaceful continent under The Unified Commonwealth of Acalas (UCA).
Kitsuneki's economy is mostly lead by manufacturing, publishing and weapons manufacturing, it's economic policy is based on a free market capitalist, where an industry can't dominate or monopolize. And promoting competition and development of products, though its capitalist economy is referred to as a form of "cuddly" capitalism. It has also a welfare model which ties into the their labour market policies. Providing income for those who are poor and those who are unemployed. The nation wants to promote a system where there is low inequality of wealth distribution and promote a more inclusive society, though because of the focus on an equal wealth distribution, taxation will be high. Kitsuneki is progressively focused on science and technology development which is why they are manufacturing goods and other consumer products, the nation outlaws the usage of dark magic and any object that inherits it will be confiscated by the Magic Council, mages who use dark magic will be punished accordingly by the Magic Council.
Kitsuneki's literature or book publishing has grown the economy of the nation by selling it to schools, foreigners, and citizens of Kitsuneki. Many of the books published in Kitsuneki are romance, religion, culture, history, adventure, biographies, etc. Poems are sold and are written in scrolls or kakemono, many poems also contain art and scrolls do not necessarily contain just poems, but historical events or short stories and such.
Education in Kitsuneki has been strict and compulsory but kids can opt out when they reach 15. For an average Kemonomimi, a child must attend their first school which is known as the "courtesy academy" at the age of 3, where they learn for 3 years Kemonomimi Etiquette and basic knowledge of the Nihon language. Children who have their 3rd birthday on or before April 1 enter the courtesy academy of that year. Kitsuneki is also strict when it comes to people knowing Nihon, when a Kemonomican child reaches 15 or reaches 10th grade they must take the Nihon literacy test to be able to get into a University or College in Kitsuneki. The Gakugyō tekisei tesuto (学業適性テスト) is taken in 10th grade and in grade 11th there is a choice to pursue the English literacy test, Kotici literacy test, and/or other languages. Kitsuneki school uniforms or also known as seifuku (制服), one of these is called the gakuran (学ラン) and the tsume-eri (詰襟), these uniforms were based off from the traditional Kitsuneki formal military uniforms worn when not in battles or war.
Public Education is free for all children, but it is maintained by taxes in the area, private education are also available but are not maintained by taxes, families who want to put their children in private education would have to pay the private institution they will still be taxed which is why many of wealthy citizens can afford private education for their offsprings.
A child must continue their Elementary education from 1-6th grade, their Junior High School education 7-9th grade and then their High School Education which they can opt out in the start of grade 10 and any other grade, which it continues from grade 10-12. Mostly due to social, cultural and family pressure about less than 5% of the entire population chooses to opt out of High School.
Kemonomimi culture has progressed into what it's now today, influenced by Shinto, ideologies and it's foreign relations with other countries. Traditional Kemonomican arts include designs and crafts such as ceramics, textiles, lacquerware, Katana's, dolls and sake. Performances of bunraku, kabuki, noh, dance, and rakugo. And other practices, the tea ceremony, ikebana, martial arts, calligraphy, origami, onsen, Geisha and games. The country has developed protection and promotion of the Kemonomican culture and cultural properties.
