The Swiss Confederacy is a confederal state in Europe consisting of eight autonomous cantons; Uri, Three Leagues, Schwyz, Unterwalden, Lucerne, Glarus, Berne, Zürich and Zug(with pending membership from Freiburg and Wallis). Each canton is largely self-governing, primarily through elected councils, the nine uniting primarily in foreign policy and to uphold shared freedoms, particularly in the face of Austrian aggression. Nominally members of the Holy Roman Empire, the Swiss largely reject its rule. As of 1400, under the Pact of Lucerne, the cantons also share a legislature, the Tagastzung, which allows can make decisions on areas of national interest, such as collective financial and trade policy.



Islamic Influences

In 1706, Swiss Explorers went to North Africa and the Middle East, bringing back various Islamic Sciences and the religion itself. The Academy of Islamic Mathematics and Art was opened up in Zurich by one of the explorers who had actually converted to Islam. They created a small commune known as Schveis Mekka or Swiss Mecca.


Nation Building

Unified Swiss Language

In 1706, Swiss Linguist and Nationalist Hans Zuremburg set about creating a unified Swiss language to be used in Swiss schools and to eventually replace the common languages used in the region. His work was funded by the Tagastzung legislature. He is set to finish it by 1710

University Building

In 1706, the Tagastzung decided to initiate a new education program where off-duty diplomats, soldiers, and merchants would teach children about regional politics, Swiss Democracy, and a variety of other subjects about the world. This was aimed at creating a new generation of crafty Swiss who have very good social skills.
