Today, the Levant is one of the most powerful nations in the world and by far the dominant nation in its region, with a population nearing 50 million and possessing the sixth largest economy in the world. The Levant was last rocked by the Levantine Revolution of the 1930s, which officially secularized the executive.
The marriage of Queen Sibylla of Jerusalem to her cousin King Richard the Lionheart of England is frequently cited as the action that saved Jerusalem. Their son Arthur later went on to expand his kingdom and essentially combined all the Crusaders states into a single nation.
The early Levant
The Mongol invasions
The Mongols swept through Persia, bringing them to the doorstep of the Kingdom of the Levant. The Mongol invasion was crucial to uniting Muslims and Christians. The threat of a common enemy quelled rising tensions between the two religions in the kingdom and the subsequent victory over Hulagu Khan secured the future of the Levant.
Growth and civil war
The monarchy currently lies in the House of Plantagenet, as it has since days of Arthur the Great. Arthur XIX is the current King of the Levant and his heir is Alexander, the Prince of Egypt. The monarch's official titles are By the Grace of God, the King of the Levant and the noble land of Jerusalem, Defender of the Faiths, Keeper of the Peace, and Prince of Rome. The last title is held as a courtesy, as Arthur I was a son of the English king. The courtesy is maintained by the Roman Emperors.
The executive of the Levant is governed by the Council of Presidents. There are seven presidents, 2 Muslim, 2 Christian, 2 Jewish, and 1 elected by the people. The electoral nature of the seventh president typically means he is a Muslim. There used to be 6 presidents, the leaders of the legislature, until the Revolution forced democratic changes. Each President is also responsible for one of the seven chanceries (State, Treasury, War, Justice, Interior, Human Resources, Technology and Exploration). The current Lord President is Hamis Al-Sayd, the President of the Interior Chancery. The President's chancellory duties are typically deputized to the Secretary of that chancery.
The legislature is divided into two parts, the Chamber of Deputies, noble lords of the kingdom, and the General Assembly, the elected representatives of the people. The Chamber of Deputies includes the Lords Spiritual, representing the religions of the Levant and responsible for maintaining interreligious peace.
The judiciary of the Levant is controlled by the Supreme Tribunal of the Levant, led by the Lord Marshal of the Levant, the highest ranking judge in the land, and his ten associates, each being the chief judge of one of the ten provinces.
The Levant occupies Egypt and the central parts of the Near East. The kingdom is divided into ten provinces: Egypt, Jerusalem, Alawite, Syria, Aleppo, Druze, Lebanon, Kurdland, Mesopotamia, and Gulf.
