Fortuna (ˈfôrCHunə), also known as the Second Fortunan Empire, is a unitary totalitarian dictatorship island nation. The nation is located in the Spes Region off the East coast of the Pax Caliphate, South of Isklevyu and Algaisia, North of the Free Pacific States, and shares a land border with Ambravia on the island Eridani Theta. The nation consists of the Fortunan Archipelago and the Medium Islands, covering an area of 130,650 km2 (50,444.247 sq mi). The three largest islands (Emili, Toscani, and Ancona) consist of much of Fortuna’s land area. The climate of Fortuna is predominantly temperate with high environmental protection. Compared to many nations on Urth, the population of Fortuna is quite moderate with an estimated population of 42,591,900 and its largest city, Imperial Fortunan City, holding up to 7.8 million people.

The history of Fortuna dates back to around 50 A.D. when people from the main land migrated to the islands. In 1076 the people of the islands united by the tribe called Fortuna. The newly united islands became known as the Empire of Fortuna which brought a golden age through trade and conquest of surrounding islands. In 1644 the nation became divided in war known as the Great Civil War. This division split the nation brought of three new nations known as Emili, Toscani, and Ancona which brought a period of isolation that lasted between the 1600s to the early 1800s. In the early 1960s, the nations participated in the War of Aggression which pushed Caliphate influence out of the archipelago and helped strengthen nationalism in the region. In 1996, the nation of Emili fell under control of the Unitary Nationalist Party with the election of Tristan Lytle as prime minister. In 1998, both Emili and Ancona joined under one government followed by Toscani in 1999. On March 11, 1999, the islands were fully united under one government. Soon after Tristan Lytle executed the current emperor and declared himself as absolute ruler of the nation, marking the starting point of the Second Fortunan Empire under a fascist dictatorship. In 2010, the Fortunan government allowed for the opening of ports and airports to the international population. Then in 2012, Fortuna successfully annexed the Medium Islands, growing Fortuna’s border and strengthening their grip on the Pacific coast of Yasteria.

Fortuna is a developing nation a medium standard of living and Human Development Index, a medium level of life expectancy, and a medium GDP. The nation holds a large military force, taking up 5.2% of the nation’s GDP, used mainly for self-defense and law enforcing. Due to the recent removal of isolation, the nation’s economy has slowly been on the rise giving Fortuna a GDP of $502.77 billion. The economy has recently been driven by the exportation of agricultural, fishing, technology products, and weapons. Fortuna’s geographic location also plays a large role as major shipping lines pass through the island chain.[edit_reason]I’m adding stuff cause I can! Don’t hurt me![/edit_reason]


“Fortuna” comes from the old Fortunan name for fortune and luck, and it was also coincidentally the name of the goddess of luck in early mythology. The name Fortuna can be dated back to the Fortuna tribe, taking their name from the goddess they worship, Fortuna. This group went on to become the first to conquer the entire archipelago, leading to it being now known as the Fortunan Archipelago. The tribe of Fortuna over the years transformed into the Empire of Fortuna, also known as the First Fortunan Empire. When the islands were once again reunited under one centralized government in 1999, Tristan Lytle, the new leader of Fortuna, declared the nation as the Second Fortunan Empire.


First Fortunan Empire

The Great Civil War and Separation (1641-1644)

Period of Isolation (1650s-1850s)

War Against Caliphate Aggression (1961-1973)

Between 1961 and 1973, the War Against Caliphate Aggression, also known as the War of Aggression, took place between the Caliphate-leaning government of Toscani under the Islamic Movement of Toscani (IMT) and the fascist-leaning governments of Emili and Ancona as the Alliance of Fortunan States (AFS). Majorly supporting the IMT was the Caliphate of Pax Draconica, while the AFS received support from the Veridian Union.

In October 1956, the Islamic Movement of Toscani seized control of Toscani in a coup d’état. In the following months, protests broke out across Toscani, especially in the southeastern part of the island where the majority of Toscanians were Claritists. The governments of Emili and Ancona during this time condemned the government takeover of Toscani by the IMT, stating it as anti-Fortunan and anti-Claritist. With the support of Emili and Ancona, the protests in Toscani slowly grew into revolts and then into a full on civil war nationwide by February 1957. The Emilian government played the largest role in training and arming rebel groups, even sending dozens of their own military advisers into Toscani to support the rebels. After a few humiliating defeats, the IMT turned towards the Pax Caliphate for assistance in the early 1959. With a superpower behind them, the IMT were able to push back the rebel groups to the southeastern coast of Toscani, specifically to the city of Terine and the surrounding towns.

On December 31, 1959, dozens of explosions took place across Emili and Ancona, targeting military personnel and large crowds celebrating the new year. The next morning on January 1, 1960, the governments of Emili and Ancona both condemned the attacks and declared war against the IMT government, calling themselves the Alliance of Fortunan States. In an unexpected turn though, the IMT made the first move by invading Emili, taking control of the Guiliano Strait and allowing the IMT to surround the remaining rebel groups in Terine with ease. For the next year, the city faced unending bombing and artillery attacks with the death toll rising up to 10,000 by 1961. By 1962, the city of Terine finally fell to the IMT.
To defend fascism in the region and prevent the spread of the Caliphate’s influence, the Veridian Union came to the aid of the AFS in the mid 1961, sending military equipment, military advisers, and spec ops groups. The war went on as a stalemate over the Guiliano Strait until 1965 when AFS troops were successful in pushing the IMT back into Toscani. By the end of 1966, the AFS were able to take the southeastern part of Toscani and liberate the city of Terine. For the next four years, AFS troops slowly pushed their way north across the mountainous landscape, both sides receiving heavy casualties.

By 1971, an AFS victory seemed inevitable as the rest of the IMT were held up in the northern mountains. Their fate was finally sealed in 1972 when the Caliphate pulled support out of the region to focus on a conflict elsewhere. A year later, the remnants of the IMT surrendered and the war officially ended on May 12, 1973. An estimated 2,160,000 people were killed including civilian casualties.


Following the defeat of the IMT, the government of Toscani was replaced with a more favored government by the AFS. During this time, nationalism was on the rise and a majority of Fortunans wished to return back to their roots as a united nation. The three states reluctantly agreed, however the head of states still wished to keep their sovereignty. Instead of unite under one government, the three states joined together as the Allied States of Fortuna where each state still had their own separate governments. To appeal to the people of Fortuna, the head of states set up the closest heir to the royal family, Roderick Verdi, as emperor who ruled from the Imperial Fortunan City. However, he had no control of the nation and merely sat as a mere cultural icon.

The Purification Period (1973-1979)

Known as the Purification Period in Fortuna, this was a time period between 1973 and 1979 where the states of Fortuna targeted certain species, religious, and political groups.
On November 2, 1973, inspired by fascism brought in during the War of Aggression, the ASF signed into law the Fortunan Purification Act which allowed for the arrest and deportation of individuals who were considered non-Fortunan, the demolishing of un-Fortunan buildings and sites, and gave law enforcement the right to arrest and detain anyone they believed was an enemy of the state. The main purpose of the act was to purposely allow for the targeting of Caliphate-leaning communities in an effort to push Caliphate influence out of the region. Anyone considered a supporter of the Caliphate were rounded up and forced to leave the islands without their consent. The majority were sent to the mainland, however others found shelter in the Medium Islands. Although they were they were the main target, Caliphate communities were not the only ones that received discrimination. Another religious group that faced discrimination was the Christian community who too were forced to leave or convert to Clarityism.

Speciesism was also on the rise during this time and many minority groups were targeted, specifically Nekos due to their relation to the Caliphate. Vulpines also faced a level of discrimination, but the majority of the vulpine community were allowed to stay due to their support during the war and their entwined history within Fortuna.

During this period, communist and socialist parties were also considered un-Fortunan by the majority fascist-leaning government. In 1975, the Nationalist Act was passed which banned any communist and socialist parties and led to the arrest of 4,000 individuals. With the removal of “competition”, the ASF became a fully fascist nation. However, due to internal conflict and disagreement, the fascist parties of Fortuna would be split and at odds with each other until the 1990s. This is one of the main causes that it took so long for the states to reorganize under one central government.

By the end of the decade, more than 500,000 individuals were arrested with more than half of them deported out of the archipelago and more than 500 significant buildings were demolished. In the early 1960s, around 20% of the population were Muslim or Christian. By the end of the 1970s, that number dropped down to less than 1%. An estimated 70,650 people were killed during this time period, many due to mass slaughter of villages which the government still denies to this day.

Instability and the Rise of Fascism

Following the end of the War of Aggression, Fortuna fell into instability with the states losing control of chunks of the archipelago to crime gangs and rebel militant groups. In the mid 1970s, the ASF began campaigns to retake the islands. However, due to a lack of a central government and the reliance of the states’ personal military, the campaigns was a slow process that lasted into the late 1980s.

With the war still fresh in many Fortunans’ minds and annoyance with the current ruling government, the want of a more unified nation under a strong government increased. The idea was headed by the Unitary Nationalist Party (UNP), a fascist political party whose goal was to unite the islands under one government and bring Fortuna back to its roots. Their popularity slowly began to rise within the Fortunan population, peaking in the early 1990s after prominent UNP members in the military were able to defeat infamous militant groups with ease. One of these members was a young officer named Tristan Lytle, a soldier in the Emili military who gained immense popularity for his victories. As the campaigns to retake the islands came to an end in 1989, Lytle moved away from the army and looked towards politics.

Unitary Nationalist Party Takeover (1990-2000)

By 1990, the UNP held almost half of the seats in all three governments: 45% in Emili, 47% in Ancona, and 38% in Toscani. The UNP’s main goal was to gain full control of all three governments and then unite as one, but that was not their only goal. Many of the higher ups of the party wished to set up a one-party state like many other fascist nations led by the UNP. Even with barely half of the seats in the chambers, the UNP began working to set up Fortuna to be easily taken over in the up coming years such as replacing leadership roles of prominent organizations with UNP sympathizers and party members. Still, they needed someone to rally around and that came in the form of Tristan Lytle.

Following his entering into politics, Lytle took advantage of his military background, popularity, and charisma to lead many UNP rallies where he gained even more notoriety for his inspiring speeches. As he slowly gained more and more followers, he also slowly began to rise up in the ranks of the UNP. Seeing an opportunity with this young, charismatic speaker, UNP leaders convinced Lytle to run for Prime Minister of Emili in the 1996 Grand Elections. With a majority vote of 52.5%, Lytle won the seat of Prime Minister of Emili and was the youngest person in Fortunan history to become a head of state at the age of 27. In Ancona, Bernard Leon, another prominent UNP member, became Prime Minister of Ancona with a majority vote of 53%. The party also gained a majority of the seats in the legislative branch of the three governments with over half in all: 75% in Emili, 80% in Ancona, and 66% in Toscani.

With control of the executive branches in Emili and Ancona, and control of a majority of the seats in all three legislative branches, the party’s next goal was to bring all three states under one centralized government, but first they needed something for Fortunans to come together for or against. On July 26, 1997, Edward Vicino, a prominent UNP member, was assassinated by a radical “anti-uniter”. During this time, tensions were high between Fortunan “uniters”, those who wish to unite Fortuna under one government, and “anti-uniters”, those who promoted state separation. Both were fighting for control of the government to complete their goals, so to gain the upper hand the UNP quickly took advantage of the current situation. Tristan Lytle publicly announced that this as the start of a anti-uniter takeover and ordered for the targeting and arrest of known anti-uniters within Emili for treason, he was soon followed suit by the governments of Ancona and Toscani. The main target was the State Independence Party with over 4,000 known members were detained. Anti-uniters and sympathizers across the nation were attacked by UNP-led rioters who caused immense damage and casualties. By the end of August, over 15,000 individuals were arrested due to their background and an estimated 539 deaths were caused. On September 8, the ASF passed the Political Protections Act which banned any political parties that were deemed “anti-Fortunan” or those who promoted a non-centralized government such as the State Independence Party, removing any rivals that the UNP had in one blow.

During his term as prime minister, Lytle traversed the islands of Fortuna to hold rallies to promote a united country under a central and powerful government, gaining more and more followers as he went on. It was during this time that he began to gain popularity among the Claritist community who began seeing him as the “Chosen One,” a prophesied leader who was said to be the one who would be successful in uniting Fortuna. This idea slowly grew until it was believed by a majority of Claritists within the region. Seeing another opportunity, prominent UNP leaders in the early months of 1997 made statements declaring Lytle as the Chosen One, setting him up to be the leader of Fortuna once fully united. On September 16, 1997, in one of his rallies Tristan Lytle himself declared he was the chosen leader and that it will be he who will unite the islands once again.

Finally on August 25, 1998, with full control of the government, Tristan Lytle held a referendum within Emili asking citizens if the Allied States of Fortuna should be abolished in placed with a more centralized government. By a landslide, a majority of Emilians by a vote of 98% voted for the end of the ASF. The next day, Lytle declared that Emili will leave the ASF and abolish the Emili government to form the Second Fortunan Empire (SFE), centralized in the city of Destino. Not wanting to be left behind, the state of Ancona declared that they too will be leaving the ASF and abolish their government to join under the government of the SFE. As the only state left in the ASF and pressured by it’s fellow states, Toscani did likewise and on March 11, 1999, all three states were finally under one centralized government, officially forming the Second Fortunan Empire.

In this new government, Tristan Lytle had set himself up to be the new head of state and take on the title of High Commander. However, he still had a handful of rivals who too wished to become head of state. So to solidify his rule, Lytle invaded the Imperial Fortunan City, the city where the emperor resided and the only place who showed no loyalty to the UNP, and personally executed the emperor in public for treason. While this was taking place, Lytle had his rivals and top officials in the government arrested or assassinated. With no one left to challenge him (with exception of Bernard Leon who escaped to the Medium Islands), Tristan Lytle publicly pronounced himself as absolute ruler of Fortuna as High Commander on May 17, 1999. Thus began the Second Fortunan Empire under the rule of a fascist dictatorship.

Second Fortunan Empire (2000-Present Day)

Following the rise to power of Tristan Lytle, he declared the 10 Year Plan, a period to allow him and the UNP time to reshape the nation and make it independent from the rest of the world. In doing so, Lytle closed the nation from outside interaction. During this period, Lytle first worked on insuring the one-party state will prevail for years to come by setting the government up with many of his loyal followers. His next step was a complete update of the military, believing that Fortuna’s military lacked far behind the rest of the world, especially compared to it’s neighbors. This update included the purchasing new weapons and military equipment, while at the same time placing loyal followers in command of this new army. However, this closing of the nation did negatively effect the nation economically, but Lytle believed it was necessary for Fortuna become an autarky. By 2010, the plan was unsuccessful in a way as the economy dropped drastically. However, this did allow for the UNP time to gain full control of international communication, limiting internet and phone access. The closed borders, limited communication, and economic drop also benefited the government by forcing the population to become reliant on them, growing Lytle’s strength over Fortuna drastically. By 2010, the Fortunan government slowly began reopening it’s borders, allowing for international trade and movement. This sudden change quickly boosted Fortuna’s economy, but now it was under full control of the government. Fortunans were still not allowed to leave the islands with few exceptions.

Following their return to the international community, Fortuna set to work to grow its influence within the region and better its reputation with other nations. The most prominent action that Fortuna did was with the annexation of the Medium Islands in 2012. During this year long campaign, Fortuna was able to secure all islands between them and the nation of Eridani Theta, giving them control to more shipping lanes, fishing spots, and oil reserves. The campaign did not go without bloodshed though, especially on Linaro Island where the remnants of Lytle’s opponents were residing and the Telga Islands where protests broke out which to soldiers firing upon the protesters, now known as the “Telga Massacre.” By the time the violence started slowing down, the Fortunan government started “Fortunification” of the local people. By 2016, the whole Medium Islands were successfully annexed and it’s people were completely absorbed into Fortunan society.

On November 1, 2017, The former nation of Eridani Theta broke apart following the decision of the Eridani Thetan 2017 Referendum. Following years living under a dictatorship and the unending growth of both speciesism and Fortunan nationalism, the southern provinces of Eridani Theta decided to break away and unite into the Fortunan Empire. The remnants joined together and formed the Republic of Ambravia, a small, vulpine majority nation. Fortunan troops quickly moved into the newly claimed territory to secure strategic positions and cities. This received some backlash from the populace that opposed Fortuna, especially from Eridani Thetan loyalists and vulpine extremists. Skirmishes continue to be reported to take place between Fortunan forces, Ambravian forces, and Eridani Thetan loyalists. Much of the conflict is currently focused around the city of Equilara, the former capital of Eridani Theta, which is held by the Eridani Thetan loyalists as both Fortunan and Ambravian troops try to claim the city before the other. On December 6, 2017, representatives from both Fortuna and Ambravia came together to sign the Slens Agreement which solidified Fortuna’s claim in Eridani Theta.


After the takeover of the government by Tristan Lytle in 1999, the Three States of Fortuna’s government is run as a unitary one-party totalitarian dictatorship with the nation run by the Unitary Nationalist Party and with Tristan Lytle holding absolute power. This gives him and the party full control of the government, military, and economy of Fortuna. It is also requires for absolute obedience of all Fortunan citizens to Lytle. Through propaganda, manipulation, fear, and brainwashing, a majority of the population of Fortuna are willing to follow Lytle, creating a personality cult based around him and many see him as a god figure. Between 2000 and 2010 the full country was closed from the outside, preventing the free movement in and out of Fortuna. There are also high restrictions found in Fortuna including on freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and also low civil rights and political freedom.


The government of Fortuna is split into three branches; Head, House, and Judicial.

Executive Branch

The Executive branch consists of the current ruler of Fortuna and is mostly known as High Commander. They have absolute power until their death and is replaced by the person of their choice. No one is able to question him and is not forbidden from anything. With his power he is allowed to veto any legislation or bills brought up by the Legislative, only allowing anything that he agrees with. He also has full control of the military and is able to give his own commands without question. Under the High Commander is his the two Commanders; the First Commander and Second Commander. They make up the top of the line of succession if the High Commander does not have an heir with the First Commander coming first, followed by the Second Commander. Although they hold different titles and positions, both Commanders are considered equal to each other. The First Commander, also known as the Chief Commander, is the head of the military and only receives orders from the High Commander. The Second Commander, also known as the Chamber Commander, is the head of the Chambers and also only receives orders from the High Commander. The current ruler, High Commander Tristan Lytle, has held this position ever since the unification of Fortuna till present day. The current First Commander is Ferdinand Romano, and the current Second Commander is Susan Locke.

Legislative Branch

The House is the legislative branch of Fortuna which is run by only one party; the Unitary Nationalist Party. Within the House there are two different groups; the Elite Chamber and the Common Chamber. The Common Chamber consists of 48 seats, 16 representatives for each state. Each state party also has three leaders who are chosen from the representatives by each party. Every representative is chosen during the nomination period where the citizens of each state nominate up to 24 possible candidates. From these nominees the leaders of the state party choose the 16 they want as their representative. Each representative in the Common each serve a term of 6 years until the next election, representatives can also serve up to three terms. If a representative either resigns, gets removed by the Head, or dies during their term, they would then be replaced by someone chosen by the leaders of that state party. The Common Chamber technically does not have any power in the Fortunan government making it useless. The main purpose of the Common Chamber is to give the Fortunan people a sense of representation in the government, even the representatives within the Common Chamber are brainwashed into believing they have importance within the Fortunan government.

In the Elite Chamber there are 11 seats and consists of only those chosen by the Head. Elites are able to serve until their death, their resignation, or removal by the Head. Each Elite member is a head of a specific department, each department focusing on a specific area. Laws usually start out in the Common Chamber. If there is a majority vote of 3/4th then the bill is passed to the Law Chamber to be approved. Once approved it moves on to the Elite Chamber. If there is a majority vote of 2/3rd then the bill is made into law. However the bill may be vetoed by the Head and must return to the Elite Chamber to be revised or removed.

Judicial Branch

The Judicial branch is the third branch in the government and helps interpret the law and the Fortunate Constitution and is run by the Law Chamber. The Law Chamber consists of 9 seats and are chosen by the High Commander. This causes for the Judicial branch to have much corruption on the inside. It is seen by many as a puppet to allow the Elite Chamber to achieve their own goals since the Judicial Branch has no power over what the Elite Chamber of the Head says. They are allowed to approve of bills that was passed by the Common Chamber. If these bills are approved by the Law Chamber then its passed to the Elite Chamber to be finally passed into law.

Foreign Policy

Historically Fortuna has always held a isolated and neutral stance concerning foreign affairs. However, since the reopening of borders in 2012, Fortuna has recently taken a larger interest in foreign policies. This includes diplomatic relations and exchange of embassies and ambassadors with multiple nations across Urth. Fortuna holds close relations with the Veridian Union and Baykalia, which includes agreements ranging from trade to military agreements.

Concerning Fortuna’s neighbors, relations are either tense or non-existent. This is due to both cultural, government, and religious differences. For example relations between Fortuna and the Free Pacific States only consist of national recognition, however due to government differences Fortuna is not very fond of their southern neighbor. The same can also be said for the Pax-Caliphate to the east and Eridani Theta to the north (which I need to edit later because I did stuff).


The Fortunan Army, Navy, Air Force and Regolatori form what is known as the Fortunan Armed Forces(FAF), under the command of the Fortuna Military Council led by the Commander, however the High Commander has absolute power over the FAF and can overrule the Military Council. Military service has always been compulsory for all citizens above the age of 18. Both men and women are required to serve at least 36 months in any branch with a few exceptions. As of 2016, the Fortunan military consisted of 578,175 personnel on active duty, with around 150,000 serving more than 36 months, and with around 1,520,000 personnel in reserve as anyone fit to fight can be drafted in if in time of crisis. Fortunan military spending takes up 5.2% of the national GDP, making it the main focus of the government. Even with high spending, the Fortunan military lacks behind many of the major powers in Yasteria.


Fortuna is a collection of archipelagos and islands found of the Pacific coast of east Yasteria. The nation consists of hundreds of individual islands, but only 19 are larger than 50 sq km. The islands can be categorized into three areas: the Fortunan Archipelago, the Medium Islands, and Eridani Theta. The larger landmasses, the islands of Emili, Ancona and Toscani, are found within the Fortunan Archipelago. The fourth largest pieces of territory is found on the island of Eridani Theta. All the islands and territory together gives Fortuna a land area of 130,650 km2 (50,444.247 sq mi), making it one of the smaller nations compared to its neighboring nations. A large percentage of Fortuna are covered in forests and mountains, making much of the land area unsuitable for agricultural, industrial, or residential use. This causes much of the population of Fortuna to locate themselves along the coast, leading to high population densities of 326 km/2 (844.34 mi/2).

Due to its location, Fortuna consists of a few dormant volcanoes, occasional Urthquakes, and tsunamis. The way the islands are formed helped create a barrier against tsunamis for those on the inside of the circle. This is one of the reasons why much of the population are found in the inner circle of the archipelago. Urthquakes are still a problem, ranging from small quakes up to 9.0-magnitude Urthquakes, an example includes the 1923 Urthquake killing nearly 100,000 people. There has been steps taken to monitor Urthquakes, volcanoes, and tsunamis to help reduce chances of death, but this doesn’t prevent Fortuna from having one of the highest natural disasters.


The climate of Fortuna is predominantly temperate, though there is visible differences between the islands. The island of Toscani is known to have lower temperatures due to its high mountains. The other islands stay rather temperate, with cooler temperatures inland due to rise in height. Winter is considered to begin in December and goes into February. Snow is common during winter, leading to heavy snowbanks. Spring starts in February and goes until May. Summer then occurs after may and goes until August. Fall is a bit short lived lasting from September to November.

Temperatures in Fortuna during the summer averages around 25.2 °C (77.4 °F) and during the winter it averages around 5.1 °C (41.2 °F). The highest recorded temperature was 39.8 °C (103.8 °F) in 2007. Rainy season begins in March and continues over Fortuna until May. Typhoons are also expected in early fall bringing heavy rain.


The biodiversity in Fortuna is known to be quite high, with different ecoregions that are able to be found. The main islands of Emili and Ancona are known to have mixed forests due to their mild climates. On Toscani and many mountainous areas they mainly consist of temperate coniferous forests. Fortuna also holds an abundance of species with over 80,000. Some of these species include the Fortunan Raccoon Dog, Fortunan Giant Salamander, and the Red Panda. Due to recent moves by the government, much of the areas have been made as protected areas to preserve the beauty of the islands of Fortuna.


In the period between the 1880s and the 1960s, industrialization was on the rise which led to a rise in environmental pollution. To confront this, the governments passed laws to help provide environmental protection. This led to the creation of national parks and protected areas which make up 14% of the country. The environmental protection laws that were created are still used today and is strictly enforced. Deforestation or destruction of the environment in any way is considered illegal unless one is given a permit by the government.

In recent years, Fortuna has taken large steps to use renewable energy with 12% of Fortuna’s energy being based off renewable energy like solar or wind power energy, a set goal of 20% by 2020.


According to a December 2017 estimate, there is a population of 42,591,900 people within Fortuna. The resulting population density, a density of 326 km/2 (844.34 mi/2), makes Fortuna one of the densest nations on Urth. The distribution of the population though is mainly found in the five main cities including Destiny City and Imperial Fortunan City, with over 25 million located in these cities and the rest spread out across the rest of the islands. Most of the population is located in towns and cities along the coast with very few living inland.

The population has been a slow ascent until the early 1900s when immigration rose quickly due to the islands declaring the removal of isolation. The immigration slowly declined a near halt in the late 1970s due to conflict that took place between the 1970s to the 1980s.

Fortuna also consists of very few different species/races. The major population of the nation mainly consists of of human at 95.8% and are spread onto much of the islands. There is also a small number of vulpines that make up 4.2% of the population and are mainly located on the northern islands of Fortuna, many of them were immigrants from northern Yasteria who arrived to the islands in the late 1700s. In the early 1900s, Fortuna once had a notable population of minority species such as vulpines and nekos. However, many of these species either fleed or were forced out during the Purification Period. In the end, it left the island chain with a heavy majority, human population.


The official language of Fortuna is Fortunan with over 95% of citizens known as native Fortunan speakers while the rest say they use Fortunan as a second language based off a study done in 2016. The language also has different dialects depending on the island with around 8 types. This was mainly due to the islands being isolated from each other between the 1500s and the 1900s. Languages that are also noticed to be used in Fortuna include Drakkengardian, Unonian, and Codexian, mainly brought in by immigrants in the late 1800s and early 1900s. However, it is discouraged for the use of foreign languages within Fortuna with the exceptions for foreign tourists and diplomats. Learning a secondary language is only encouraged for limited educational use, with the most prominent language being Codexian.


Since the Purification Period, which ended in the late 1970s, the official state religion of Fortuna is Clarityism. Fortuna is considered to be extremely religious, with no reported atheists. However, the practicing of religions other than Clarityism is prohibited, such as Christianity and Islam. In the 1960s, 20% of Fortunans practiced either Islam or Christianity, but by the end of the Purification Period that number dropped to 1%. This means that nearly the whole population of Fortuna state that they follow Clarityism.
What also helped boost this number was after Tristan Lytle took power and turned Clarityism into a personality cult with him as the figurehead of the religion. It is believed by a majority of Claritists that Tristan was chosen by Unus to unite the nations of Fortuna together, which coincidentally Tristan was actually able to do.



Following the Purification Period, the teaching of nationalist ideals soon became a requirement in many Fortunan schools. Going into the 1990s, schools became the foundation for the spread of UNP beliefs as many educators that disagreed with the party were replaced by more favorable teachers. To be allowed to teach during this time, teachers were required to be party members of the UNP and be a believer of Clarityism. By the time Tristan Lytle took power, educators were required to the following requirements but must also swear an oath of loyalty to Tristan Lytle and the Fortunan Empire to receive a teaching permit. If they showed any lack of devotion to the Empire, students, parents, and fellow teachers were encouraged to report them to face jail time or dismissal.

All forms of education within Fortuna are state-owned, all ran by the Information and Education Department. The Department was responsible for insuring that teachers and educators only taught state approved lessons. Textbooks and assignments for primary and secondary education were to be state approved before use in the class. During the 1970s to the 1990s, the state governments had all books and texts deemed non-Claritist and un-Fortunan were seized from households and libraries to be burned. Nationalist teachings only started to begin in the late 1970s, and was later reformed and further enforced after the UNP takeover in the 1990s. UNP elites believed it was of utmost that the Fortunan youth were indoctrinated into UNP beliefs, so it is required for children to enter into the state-approved education system at the age of 6. It is also mandatory for children to receive a 10 year education, mainly consisting of primary and secondary education.

Primary education lasts for six years. During this period, children are given a basic education in Fortunan, mathematics, and science. However, the main focus in primary education is history, geography, culture, and physical education to further indoctrinate Fortunan children into society. Secondary education also lasts for four years further teaches these same lessons but with a larger focus in physical education, such as martial arts and hand-to-hand combat, and physics for military application. Military academies are highly sought out by Fortunan parents as these schools further enforces discipline, loyalty to the High Commander and the nation, and preparation for military service.

Upon graduating from secondary education, all children are required to take a collection of tests to decide where they are best suited. Known as the “Ettori Exams,” named after Director Rachel Ettori, the tests were created to pick out the most intelligent, most fit, and most loyal individuals. This small percentage are then persuaded and supported by the government to become future leaders and pursue careers such as in science and engineering for the FSED, government to become favored members in the UNP, and military to become officers. Young adults with slightly lower scores are also encouraged to attend university, but they do not receive as much attention from the government. Finally, those who scored low or are considered “useless” are encouraged to prepare to join the workforce after military service. These individuals, however, are not discouraged from attending university, yet still over 80% of those who score low on the Ettori Exams skip university.

University for many begin once they have completed their mandatory service in the military for three years. In university, many students study for careers that were encouraged for them by the government. University students are also required to participate in military training to insure that they are always prepared.

Women and Family

Women have become an important part of Fortuna’s social policy. Adopting the same ideals from the Veridian Union, the UNP advocated for an egalitarian society all the while discouraging and eradicating feminist movements. Replacing feminist groups is the Fortunan Nationalist Women’s Organization, first started in 1975 and has steadily grown over the years with the help of the UNP in the 1990s. The role of the organization was to promote motherhood, household activities, and fitness. The organization also provided courses in childrearing, cooking, and sewing.

Women are encouraged to stay in the work force, and the creation of large families was considered ideal. Women who give birth to four or more children receive an award for aiding in growing the Fortunan population. Large families may also receive subsidies to help with their utilities, school fees, and household expenses. Since 1975, birth rates in Fortuna has increased, leading to a dramatic rise in population. Also adopted from the Veridian Union was the promotion of large numbers of women to be hired to work in munitions and other industrial factories during the military build-up. Women are neither discouraged or encouraged to seek higher education, and many young women instead simply follow the results of their Ettori Exams.

Women are to be strong and healthy, so the study of health and fitness are heavily promoted. An athletic woman with a strong body and mind are considered ideal, and it is expected that they bore strong and healthy children as well. To indoctrinate children early into fascist values, organisations were created, such as the Fortuna Youth in which membership is compulsory at the age of 9. The Young Girls of Fortuna was a section of the Fortuna Youth which was for girls from the age of 9 to the age of 13 while the Young Women of Fortuna were for girls from the age of 13 to the age of 17. The YWF’s activities mainly consisted of running, marching, swimming, gymnastics, fencing, and sharpshooting.

Fortuna Youth


Fortunan society is known for its support of animal rights and environment protection, especially of those native to the Fortunan Archipelago. The Fortunan government has passed laws that protected animals and the environment, such as the 2002 Animal Protection Act which led to the ban on hunting of specific animals, including the national animal the Red Panda. Zoos and reserves have become a favorite of for Fortunans, and many animals from around the world have been brought to the island chain because of this.

In 2003, the National Nature Protection Act was passed to protect the landscape from excessive economic development. In the same year, the National Preservation Act was passed which led to the creation of dozens of national parks across the archipelago. Although pollution is heavily discouraged, very little effort has been made by the government to enforce and legislation.


Following centuries being divided by politics and geography until unification in 1999, Fortuna has developed a unique culture, built from a multitude of regional customs. Following the rise of fascism in the 1970s, old Fortunan culture was heavily promoted and anything considered foreign were discouraged or “Fortunanized.” The collecting and preserving of Fortunan art and architecture has been a top priority of the Fortunan people, thus a vast collection of buildings, art, and literature from the time of the First Fortunan Empire still exists to this day.


Fortuna has a broad and diverse architectural style which has been not only influenced based off the period, but also the region.

Fortunan architecture gains much of its design and style from the First Fortunan Empire, with complex designs, arches, and domes with a few examples having survived to today. Fortunan architecture has also pulled influence from many of its neighbors, which one of the main reasons of Fortuna’s diverse style. Toscani and the surrounding islands pulled much influence from the Pax Caliphate in the 1700s. Emili architecture shows sign of influence from Codex architecture, most likely due to its close proximity to the former colonial power. Ancona is what many consider to consist of the most “pure” Fortunan architecture, but design differences are notable between cities due to the rise of city-states in the late 1600s. Eridani Theta also has a unique architectural style which has gained much from vulpine design. Some of the most prominent buildings within Fortuna include the Imperial Palace, Fortuna Monument, Guiliano Cathedral, Marchello Cathedral, and the city design of Terine.

Although the Fortunan government promotes the preservation of historically important structures, obvious foreign structures have been the target of demolition. During the Purification Period, hundreds of places of worship of multiple religions that were not Claritist. This was caused by the growth of nationalism and foreign hatred within Fortuna, leading to the targeting of anything un-Fortunan. Structures and art that had once survived for centuries were demolished and destroyed upon orders of the Fortunan states as backlash against foreign aggression and seen as the rebirth of Fortunan culture. Today, Fortunan architecture closer resembles that of the First Fortunan Empire, but with more modern designs.

Visual Art

Art has become an important piece in Fortunan culture, with art museums and art collecting still being widely popular, mainly those of Fortunan artists. The golden age of art in Fortuna was between the 13th and 17th century when artists strived for realism within their art. This time period led to the birth of popular artists such as Giraldo Li Fonti with his paintings of the imperial family, then with Crescente Piccio and Tito Fallaci gaining notability for their paintings and sculptures of Claritist deities. More dark and surreal art from the late 1600s, which displayed disappointment in the First Fortunan Empire’s breakup, has become especially popular in present time, with works by Dolcelino Udinese and female artist Sara Capon gaining much notoriety by Fortunan nationalists.

In the 19th century, Romanticism had grown in popularity, and this shown in Fortunan art as well. Romantic artists such as Muzio Esposito, Guarino Calabrese, and Cino Fanucci, led the way in Fortunan art at this time. Impressionism, brought in from the south, gained a footing in Fortuna with the help of artists such as Marilena Gallo and Romolo Baresi. In the early 20th century, Futurism slowly rose within Fortuna, although many fear that it may be too “abstract.”

Abstract, modern, Dadaist, and expressionist art are considered by many as an abomination to Fortunan culture. With the rise of nationalism in the late 1900s, thousands of modern art were removed from museums and replaced with art approved by the government. Hundreds of these art pieces were destroyed during the Purification Period, the remaining pieces were either placed in secured facilities or placed in special exhibitions.


The history of Cinematography in Fortuna first started in 1913 with foreign film exhibitions from the south. The first Fortunan film lasted for only a few seconds, showing the steamship ‘‘Proud Salacia’’ heading out of port. The Fortunan film industry was born between 1915 and 1918 with the companies Emili Film and Destino Film, both based on the island of Emili. Other companies slowly followed, popping up mainly in Ancona. These companies soon were producing quality and acclaimed films, and by 1925 many films were already being exported overseas. Following economic downfall in the 1930s, neorealist films took over the market as it displayed the life of the poor and working class. Starting in the 1940s, as the film industry was growing larger and more popular, a flow of new genres entered the stage. Epics based on old Fortunan mythology received much praise, although at times controversial due to its close relation to Clarityism. Thrillers and gangster movies rose to popularity in the 1950s, and would continue into the early 1960s.

In the 1960s, the film industry stagnated as the archipelago was thrown into conflict against each other once again. The governments of Emili and Ancona, the states where a majority of the film industry was located, decided to help fund the creation of films to help boost morale and spread further propaganda. When the War of Aggression finally came to an end in 1973, films started to focus again on neorealism and nationalism. War films showing the heroism of Fortunan soldiers against the enemy was a common place in theaters. By 1976, Fortuna banned the import of foreign films from the mainland, leaving Fortunan film companies unopposed, however still under the watchful eye of the government. The 1980s and into the 1990s saw a new type of nationalist films that centered around the First Fortunan Empire, calling for the return of a strong, central government. These films were at first immediately banned, but when the UNP gained more control and influence, pro-unity films boosted further into popularity.

Film today is entirely state-ran after the two largest film studios, Emili Film and Destino Film, were bought by the Information Department. Not all films were designed to propaganda purposes, but all films must never be anti-Fortunan and all scripts were pre-censored before filming. The most popular films by Fortunans still remains war films and national propaganda, many based off the War of Aggression, the Unification Campaigns, or the most recent annexation of the Medium Islands. In 2010, the ban on importation of foreign films was lifted, but all films have to go through heavy censorship before being distributed to the public.


The most popular sports in Fortuna are, by far, combat based. One-on-one competitions based around speed, strength, and agility are a favorite for Fortunans. It is common to find small stadiums where one-on-one competitions can take place. Fortunans are especially fond of “Spintada,” a sword-fighting technique native to Fortunan which also similar to fencing. State and National Competitions are held year-round, and thousands participate and compete in their certain age group. School club competitions are also quite popular, with thousands of students competing each other from around the nation. Besides Spintada, wrestling and boxing are also favorites in Fortuna.

Fortunans also indulge themselves in other individual, non-combative sports. The most popular of these would be solo sailing, a favorite among fishing villages. Running has also become a popular sport as it encourages athleticism. Other individual sports that are found in Fortuna also includes swimming, cycling, and table tennis.

Popular team sports mainly just consist of football (soccer), volleyball, and baseball. Many teams are city based, so team rivalries are enjoyed by fans.
