Tzabcan People's Republic
The idea in the creation of Tzabcan is, 'what if Aztecs survived and modernizes themselves?'. So, Tzabcan will have a strong taste of alternate history. The name, Tzabcan, means 'rattlesnake', and their national flag reflects the shape found on the back of a diamondback rattlesnake. Tzabcan is currently a rising nation, following a communist-nationalist ideology. They still respect their traditional ways, though; Most Tzabcans embrace the old Tzabcan Pantheon, a religion whose roots are planted very deep in Tzabcan culture.
The Tzabcan capital of Tenochtitlan had existed even before the country came into being. It was historically a holy city and a city-state, so it has numerous temples and old historic fortifications.
Since before its modernization, Tzabcan military is roughly divided into three independent factions that support each other, and all are loyal to the country. There's the regular Tzabcan Armed Forces, which conscripts serve under, and there's the Jaguar Paramilitaries and the Eagle Nationalists. These last two military factions are also semi-political entities, with at least one province dedicated to each. Basically, the Jaguar Paramilitaries are adept guerilla fighters, and they are composed of warrior families from jungle tribes in Tzabcan territroy. The Eagle Nationalists, on the other hand, are elite shock troopers, adept in city warfare and air combat. They come mostly from noble blood families, with a long history of military duty.
Tzabcan politics are a bit complicated. They have a communist-nationalist ideology, and is in alliance with Chung Kuo.
The figurehead of the country is a President, who supervise the Parliament. The parliament is composed like such:
-50 to 60% 'people's voice' representatives (relays the needs of the citizens)
-20% military representatives (includes the Jaguar Paramilitary and Eagle Nationalist representatives)
-20 to 30% religious representatives (the High Priests of the Tzabcan Pantheon, also called as The Elders)
The parliament adresses problems and define laws, and the President has to approve the laws before they are accepted. A new president is elected every eleven years, during a religious moment, in which the citizens cast their vote solemnly.
