The Republic of Kuovälsna, or Kuovälsna is a republic in the Northeast of Novaris. It was founded after the colonisation Ny‘Andrestopp led to the collapse of the first historical Akuan democracy. At the time, Kuovälsna was considered to be the frontier of Ny‘Andrestopp during the collapse of the nation, having been admimistered by native Kuovälpsan fiefs. The Ny’Sænuri clans of Ny‘Andrestopp guided the refugees of the former nation into the frontier area past the mountains.
During the time, the Ny’Sænuri clans took the leading role in governance, establishing a military-run government to protect against neighbouring coloniser nations. The Ny’Sænuri authority controlled the government until the Dawn Revolution of 1856 which established a democratic state and retracted the Ny‘Andrestopp claim, proclaiming the republic.
After a century of democratic governance, the Ny’Sænuri clans retook control of the governance in 1958, during the Jarisvi-Kuoväinne War. Previously during the war, the Jarisvi were on the offensive, taking over large parts of the government and bringing the country to its knees. The Ny’Sænuri seized control of the government, changing the course of the war, pushing back the Jarisvi forces pass the border and taking a large chunk of the country.
In 2008, the government returned to a ‘democracy’. Establishing a de facto Ny’Sænuri-controlled government backed by the Kuoväinne National Struggle party. Which has been in government from the beginning of the return to democratic governance.
