Demonym Sri Vijayan
Srivijaya is located in the isles of our timeline Indonesia. It started out as a group of merchant towns and grew into a great empire. Srivijaya greatly contributed to the population of Madagscar, which was where they set up their first colony.


Foreign Policy

Srivijaya has good relations with China, India, Wolof, and most of the former Sri Vijayan protectorates and colonies. They possess a rivarly with Japan, who they compete with economically, and cultural and territorial tensions exist with Thailand to the north


Government

Sri Vijaya is a federal constitutional monarchy, following the reduction of the monarchy's power in the nineteenth century. Sri Vijaya's states have great semi-autonomy, especially the states of Ugis and Dayak. Sri Vijaya's government has to be able to control the numerous ethnic groups, multiple languages, and small island territories across the world.


History

Sri Vijaya arose out of small Malay trading kingdoms. Benefitting from its close relation to China and strategic position sea-trade wise, Sri Vijaya rose to become a trading power in the eleventh, twelfth, and thirteenth centuries. Following brief periods of instability following the break-up of China and the Great Plague, Sri Vijaya built a huge colonial empire, which included most of the Pacific Islands, Australia, much of Africa, as well as many protectorates in Europe. However, in the 1830s and 1840s, ethnic violence and political strife greatly reduced Sri Vijaya's power. Following a Pyrrhic victory in the War of Empires, the Sri Vijayan empire imploded, and they lost most of their colonies over the next several decades. After a long period of economic instability, Sri Vijaya recovered in the 1920s and 1930s.

Economy

Sri Vijaya was traditionally a trade-based economy due to its strategic position in aquatic trading routes. The invention of the airplane, train, and space technology has reduced the importance of the straits of Malacca, but has not eliminated it. Furthermore, many Sri Vijayan trade companies have expanded into other mediums of trade. Sri Vijaya is an industrialized nation, with space settlements and online companies. Furthermore, many Sri Vijayans are noted for caring deeply about the environment, to the extent that many green jobs have been created there.


Religion

Sri Vijaya is noted for being a fairly secular nation. Although Vajrayana Buddhism remains the official religion, many Sri Vijayans are not very religious, and a large irreligious population exists.
