Zaporizhia (Yarovan: Запоро́жье, Peremorovkan: Запорізька, Dzhokarian: Запорийчхоь, Rovsnoski: Запорижжя, Kartvelian: ზაპორიოზია), also called Zaporizhzhya, officially the Republic of Zaporizhia (Yarovan: Республика Запоро́жье,, Peremorovkan: Республіка Запорізька, Dzhokarian: Республика Запорожчйн, Rovsnoski: Република Запорижжя, Kartvelian: ზაპორიჟის რესპუბლიკა), is a federal semi-presidential constitutional republic located in Eastern Artemia. Zaporizhia is a relatively young country, formed out of the United Provinces of Rovsnoska and Zaporizhia in 1994. Zaporizhia possesses sizeable agricultural areas, oil reserves, heavy industries and strategic commercial seaports essential to Eastern Artemian trade with Kesh. In comparison to some of its neighbouring states, other than hydrocarbons - there is a considerable scarcity of natural resources in Zaporizhia and it depends on service exports to sustain its economic stability. Owing to its recent involvement in a crippling civil war, Zaporizhia's industry continues to suffer. Zaporizhia shares a border with Yarova to the north, Poja to the south, Tethys coastline to the east, and Rovsnoska to the west.


"Zaporizhia" derives its name from the Peremorovkan beyond the rapids, which references its geographic situation in regards to the River Alegiyev which spans across much of the Far East of Artemia.


Antiquity and early history

Evidence of neanderthal settlement in Zaporizhia can be seen in archaeological sites near the capital of Sosnivika (approximately 42,000 BCE) which include discoveries of mammoth remains. The territory of modern-day Zaporizhia is also widely thought to be the likely location for the human domestication of the horse. The region was largely dominated by the Khazars in a time frame from the late-6th century CE to the mid-to-late-9th century CE. Subsequent to this, the advent of the Early East Slavs led to the creation of the East Slavic confederacy of Ljudia. The confederacy, which is estimated by historians to have existed from the late-9th century to the mid-13th century CE, included territory now part of Yarova. Ljudia derives its name from the Proto-Slavic ljudьje meaning “men” or “people.”

In 988 CE, Pyotr the Pious of Ljudia introduced Christianity to the pagan Ljudians. The administrative structure of the confederacy became increasingly decentralised over time and eventually disintegrated by the 12th century CE, with the emergence of several distinct East Slavic nations. Zaporizhia surfaced as a separate nation in spite of its cultural closeness to the other ethnic Yarovar tribes to the north of the River Alegiyev. With respect to this, in the ethnolinguistic sense, Zaporizhians are occasionally referred to as 'south-eastern Yarovars'. During the Late Middle Ages, Zaporizhia was a protectorate of the Tsardom of Yarova, maintaining a strong association with its northern brethren but simultaneously cultivating its own identity with its centre of government in the fortified city of Sosnivika.

Governorate of Zaporizhzhya (1743-1926)

Following the extensive and unprecedented territorial expansion of the Yarovan Vojiskiy Empire throughout the 18th century CE, as part of the manifest destiny policy of Vostochnoye Gospodstvo (‘Eastern Domination’), the Protectorate of Zaporizhzhya was directly annexed in 1743. Along with the neighbouring ethnic Rovsnoski territory of Rovsnoska, Zaporizhia was reorganised as a Governorate of the Vojiskiy Crown (guberniya). The Governorate served as a crucial asset to the Empire’s carrying out of international trade and aided in its colonial expansion into Kesh, with the conquest of Tolima in 1786. A substantial number of ethnic Peremorovkars settled in the Governorate and established fishing villages on the Vasylivka Peninsula, accentuating the already-stark contrast between the Zaporizhians and their northern counterparts in Yarova Proper.

In the latter part of the 19th century, Zaporizhian nationalism, republicanism and communism caught traction in the Governorate. Zaporizhia birthed notable communist figures Igor Schrebina and Vladimir Kurchatov, who would go on to collaborate with Rovsnoskan separatists of a shared communist persuasion to secede from the Vojiskiy Empire following its collapse in 1926. Schrebina particularly advocated unity with Rovsnoska but separation from Greater Yarova. Similar to the union of the Aukalnians and Sarts in the United Socialist Boreal Republics of Aukalnia and Sartland, which was also founded in 1926, the United Provinces of Rovsnoska and Zaporizhia was considered a temporary measure. An attempt was made by the first President of the United Federated Districts of Yarova, Vladimir Simakin, to reunify the ethnic Yarovar regions, however, this was foiled following his passing away in September 1926. The communist one-party system of the United Provinces impacted the diplomatic relationship with the newly-democratised Yarova, however, relations rarely strayed beyond neutral.

United Provinces of Rovsnoska and Zaporizhia (1926-1994)

After the two states were formally unified, Vladimir Kurchatov was inaugurated as the first president of the new, socialist United Provinces, which he ruled through the Supreme Soviet. Once a predominantly agricultural country, the United Provinces was transformed into a mid-range industrial state, and acquired an international reputation due to its manufacturing of diesel engines. The United Provinces was established as a federal state comprising two republics, from west to east: Rovsnoska and Zaporizhia. In 1943, Andre Marchotov, the then-leader of the opposing party, was kidnapped, beaten and shot. This sparked nationwide outrage and almost ignited into a civil war. However, this was successfully prevented due to a declaration of martial law, which was utilised as a mechanism to swiftly repress all opposition before it could organise. In 1968, reserves of oil were discovered in swathes of territory situated between Rovsnoska and Zaporizhia and the country enjoyed an economic boom owing to this. With its new-found wealth, two major companies where formed: Zapoatom, which was tasked with constructing and operating nuclear reactors, and Rosuran, which carried out uranium mining. In 1972, the first excavation was completed at Cherkasy Nuclear Power Station. By 1980, the plant officially commenced operations and began to supply power to Sosnivika.

In the late-1970s, Zaporizhia's oil resources were beginning to decrease at an accelerating rate and, by 1984, exploration and production had virtually ceased. The termination of this industry, which played a central role in the economic output of the United Provinces, had a devastating impact on the state's economy. The failure of the government to prepare for such adversity resulted in a famine and humanitarian crisis in 1993 which, according to some estimates, claimed the lives of over 40,000 Rovsno-Zaporizhians. The following year, in 1994, a nonviolent demonstration in Sosnivika was met with brutality by government forces. This sparked the Rovsnoskan-Zaporizhian Civil War. For the duration of the conflict, the communists retained control over Zaporizhia, whereas much of Rovsnoska was captured by fascist separatist rebels. After heavy fighting and profound loss of life, the conflict concluded with the secession of Rovsnoska.

Contemporary history

Following the civil war, the diminished Zaporizhia initially struggled to regain a stable footing, with soaring levels of unemployment. Allegations of corruption at government-level and within the Armed Forces came to a head in 2005, when dramatic, sweeping reforms were implemented, which involved the removal of almost half of the army personnel and government staffers. Later that year, the nuclear power plant in Ivankov was reopened, which restored electricity to much of the country's deprived rural areas. In 2006, in further efforts to stabilise the economy, dozens of factories were expanded and the road and rail network was rebuilt. By 2009, the national economy started to display signs of growth, the first time since the 1970s. This was seen as a major victory.

In 2010, modernisation efforts were underway which involved the country's movement towards democracy and a mixed, transitional economy. Today, Zaporizhia is still recovering from the civil war. Recently, the government announced plans to build a "closed city" with another nuclear power plant to replace the deteriorating-Cherkasy. The Armed Forces still boast a sizeable quantity of employees, with around 30,000 active personnel and an additional 400,000 in reserve. The majority of the state's former infrastructure remains in ruins but, gradually, the situation is improving with a reconstruction program in progress. In 2013, Alexander Ilyamin took over the Zaporizhian National Party and now leads the government. Zaporizhia nurtures an increasingly-sophisticated secret police force.

Zaporizhia has a strategic position in Eastern Artemia: lying on the shores of the Zaporizhian Sea and the Tethys Ocean, it borders the Artemian countries of Yarova to the north, Poja to the south and Rovsnoska to the west. The total geographic area of Zaporizhia is 95,036 square kilometres (36,694 sq mi). The land border of Zaporizhia totals 3,448 kilometres (2,080 mi). The border lengths with each country are: Poja 552 kilometres (343 mi), Rovsnoska 1,064 kilometres (661 mi), and Yarova 1,832 kilometres (1,138 mi). Zaporizhia is also bordered by 2,488 kilometres (1,546 mi) of coastline.

The Zvinyacheye Steppe (Cтепь Звіняче) dominates the landscape of much of the country's northern region and is divided from Yarova's Dzyunakaz Steppe by the River Alegiyev. In the north-west, along the border with Rovsnoska, lies the Rosnoskaya mountain range (Росноська гора), which includes Zaporizhia's highest mountain Zapormorn (Запорморна), which stands at 1,445 metres above sea level. Whereas central and southern Zaporizhia features vast unforested grasslands and fertile plains, stretching as far as the southern tip of the Vasylivka Peninsula. The climate of Zaporizhia is mostly temperate, with the exception of the Vasylivka Peninsula which has a subtropical climate. The country has two sizeable lakes located in the south, Beregovaya (284 km2) and, the largest, Ingur (516 km2).

With the use of the Köppen–Geiger climate classification system, Zaporizhia may be primarily divided into two main groups: humid continental (Dfb or 'hemiboreal') in the north and humid subtropical (Cfa or 'mild temperate') in the south. The northern portion of Zaporizhia has an average temperature in the warmest month below 22 °C (72 °F). Summer high temperatures in this zone typically average between 21–28 °C (70–82 °F) during the daytime and the average temperatures in the coldest month are generally far below the −3 °C (27 °F) isotherm. Frost-free periods typically last 3–5 months. Heat spells lasting over a week are rare and the winters in northern Zaporizhia are long, cold, and severe. While the south of the country's climate features mean temperature in the coldest month between 0 °C (32 °F) and 18 °C (64 °F) and mean temperature in the warmest month 22 °C (72 °F) or higher.

The far northern region of the country, particularly the Sira Desert (Пустыня Сира) to the west of the Zvinyacheye Steppe, has a cold desert climate (BWk). An average of approximately 194 millimetres (7.6 in) of rain falls annually in the Sira Desert. Additional moisture reaches parts of the Sira in winter as snow is blown by the wind from the Dzyunakaz and Zvinyacheye steppes. These winds may cause the Sira to reach −40 °C (−40 °F) in winter to 45 °C (113 °F) in summer. However, the climate of the Sira is one of great extremes, combined with rapid changes of temperature of as much as 35 °C (63 °F). These can occur not only seasonally but within a timeframe of 24 hours.

Biodiversity plays an important role in the economic and social development of the state. Occupying less than 1% of Artemia’s area, Zaporizhia possesses more than 30% of its biodiversity. It is associated with the favourable location of the country – many ways of migration and nature zones are in the country. Biota (over 70,000 species) includes many rare, relict and endemic species. Certain species of flora and fauna, which require special protection, are included in the List of Endangered Plants and Animals of Zaporizhia. The latest edition of the list contains 825 species of flora and 540 species of fauna. Zaporizhia is divided into two main zoological areas. One of these areas, in the west and south of the country, is where there are species typical of mixed forests, the other is located in northern Zaporizhia, where steppe-dwelling species thrive. In the forested areas of the country, it is not uncommon to find lynxes, wolves, wild boar and martens, as well as many other similar species; this is especially true of the Rosnoskaya mountains, where many predatory mammals make their home, as well as a contingent of brown bears. Around Zaporizhia's lakes and rivers, beavers, otters and mink make their home, whilst in the waters, carp, bream and catfish are the most commonly found species of fish. In the central and southern parts of the country, rodents such as hamsters and gophers are found in large numbers. Despite the harsh conditions of the Sira Desert and its surrounding areas, the region sustains many animals, including black-tailed gazelles, marbled polecats, wild Bactrian camels, and sandplovers.

The speckled ground squirrel is a native of the northern Zaporizhian steppes.

Zaporizhia possesses considerable natural potential. A high role is played by forests, which occupy 23% of the territory of Zaporizhia. Stockpiling and sale of timber is an important income item that ensures profit to the state and population. The territory of Zaporizhia is crossed by several large rivers such as Alegiyev, Bilyy and Serebrayny, which feed the most part of the country’s territory. Water-living resources being produced from these and other water sources are an important component of ensuring the safety of Zaporizhia’s foodstuffs.

For Zaporizhia as an agrarian state, which possesses a powerful resource potential for agriculture, available land and genetic diversity are regarded as national necessities. Agricultural development of the national territory has currently reached 72%, while the level of ploughed-up lands stands at 56%. The largest stock of arable lands belongs to oblasts located in forest-steppe and steppe zones (northern, central and western Zaporizhia). Among negative trends, which require addressing, one can observe the replacement of autochthonic ecological diversity due to increasing imports of domesticated breeds of animals and cultivated plant varieties, exacerbated by privatisation and the development of areas previously occupied by nature, in particular, along banks of rivers and coasts.

In Zaporizhia, measures aimed at improving the condition of biodiversity are continuously implemented, and the legislative framework in the field of protection, conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity has improved. One of the major policy papers in the field of protection, restoration and sustainable use of biodiversity is the State Programme for the Development of the National Ecological Network of Zaporizhia for 2015-2030. The main purpose of the programme is to enlarge the land area of the country with natural landscapes to a level sufficient to maintain their diversity and close to their inherent natural state. As well as shaping them in a territorially-unified system so to provide opportunities for natural ways of migration and propagation of species of plants and animals, which would ensure conservation of natural ecosystems, species of flora and fauna and their populations. Under this programme, a number of approved regional programmes and schemes of developing an ecological network have increased. As of 2020, the Programme for the Development of the Ecological Network of the Oblast of Yuzhnaya Dzhokariya, 12 regional programmes, and 46 local schemes of developing natural habitats are in progress.

On 5 October, 2014, the National Congress (Parliament) of Zaporizhia (Национальный Конгресс) approved the Law of Zaporizhia “On the Strategy of the National Ecological Policy Through 2030”. The strategy defines the main tasks under seven goals. Biodiversity is highlighted in Goal 5, specifically the prevention of the loss of biological and landscape diversity and the development of an ecological network. To implement the strategy, the Cabinet of Ministers of Zaporizhia approved the National Environmental Protection Action Plan.

Included in the plan is the definition of the territories, on which it is planned to create representative and interconnected nature protection reserves by 2030, covering at least 20% of terrain and inland waters and 10% of coastal and marine areas. Most ambitious of all is the aim to extend the area of the national ecological network to 40% of the total territory of Zaporizhia. Locations of growth and habitation of plants and animals listed in the List of Endangered Plants and Animals of Zaporizhia, areas that support regionally-rare species, and priority wetlands of international importance are being examined. As a result, one can observe an increase in the areas of preserves and national nature parks, increasing in area from 3% to 8% of the total area of the country since 2016. Despite the considerable efforts and resources involved, the growth rates of protected area extension remain insufficient to achieve the planned indicators of conservation coverage by 2030.

Governance and administration

According to the Fundamental Law of Zaporizhia, the country is a federal semi-presidential republic, wherein the President is the head of state and the Prime Minister is the head of government. Constitutionally, Zaporizhia is structured as a multi-party representative democracy, with the government composed of three branches:

The president is elected by popular vote for a five-year term (eligible for a second term, but not for a third consecutive term). The current President of Zaporizhia is Alexander Ilyamin. Ministries of the government are composed of the Premier and his/her deputies, ministers, and selected other individuals; all are appointed by the President on the recommendation of the Prime Minister (whereas the appointment of the latter requires the consent of the Chamber of Deputies). Leading political parties in Zaporizhia include the Zaporizhian National Party (Запорожская национальная партия), the Communist Party (Коммунистическая партия Запорожья), and United! (Объединённый!).

The Ministry for State Security (Министерство государственной безопасности), commonly referred to as the MGB, is the official state security service of the Republic of Zaporizhia. It has been described as one of the most effective and repressive intelligence and secret police agencies ever to have existed. The MGB is headquartered in Sosnivika, with an extensive complex in Svetloyarsk and several smaller facilities throughout the country. The MGB's official motto is "service and valour we stand unchanged" (сервис и доблесть мы стоим без изменений). The current head of the organisation is Dimitri Domstosk, a figurehead with a curiously elusive public profile. Among the MGB's main tasks are surveillance on the general Zaporizhian population, principally through a vast network of citizens-turned-informants, and the combatting of any threats to national security by overt and covert measures, including incarceration and deportation. Sosya has also helped Zaporizhia construct the National Counterinsurgency System - enabling the government to collect large amounts of internet metadata and statically analyse it for trends. Massive CCTV systems have been built across the country supported with Osorrai foreign aid.

Administrative divisions

File:Map of Zaporizhia.png
Map of Zaporizhia's administrative divisions.

The Republic of Zaporizhia is divided into eighteen federal subjects, seventeen of which are known as oblasts (область) and one as an okrug (округ). Oblasts are a constituent political entity in a federal union with representation in the Supreme Council (the upper house of the National Congress) and serve as a first-level administrative division. Each oblast features a state government holding authority over a defined geographic territory, with a state legislature that is democratically elected. The chancellor (канцлер) is the highest executive position of the state government in an oblast and is elected by people. Oblasts are divided into raions (districts), cities of oblast significance (district-equivalent independent cities), and autonomous okrugs, which are legally federal subjects equal to an oblast but are administratively subservient to one. At present, the seventeen oblasts are: Abargabelozov, Balaginsk, Berezan, Borisoshevsk, Chernyslaviya, Dezovskaya, Drozdovitsa, Dushika, Karemcha-Khyriv, Koroyevsk, Prokovyurt, Sararovo, Sira-Zhinyacheye, Sosnivika, Svetloyarsk, Zagoriya, and Zlata. The one okrug is: Yuzhnaya Dzhokariya. Every federal subject has its own head, a parliament, and a constitutional court. Each federal subject has its own constitution and legislation. Subjects have equal rights in relations with federal government bodies.

The current Fundamental Law of Zaporizhia, adopted by national referendum on 22 October, 2010, came into force on 8 November, 2010 and abolished the model of the communist system of government introduced in 1926 by Vladimir Kurchatov and based on the right to secede from the country and on unlimited sovereignty of federal subjects (in practice secession was never allowed), which conflicts with country's integrity and federal laws. The new constitution eliminated a number of legal conflicts, reserved the rights of the regions, introduced local self-government and did not grant the UPRZ-era right to secede from the country. In the 2010s, the political system became de jure closer to other modern federal states with a republican form of government, such as the United Federated Districts of Yarova.

Foreign relations

Since Zaporizhia's move from a communist one-party state to a multi-party democracy with a transitional economy in 2010, the country has enjoyed an improved relationship with its northern neighbour of Yarova, which actively encouraged the popularisation of perestroika and glasnost. In September 2012, President Ilyamin became the first Zaporizhian president to carry out a state visit to Shchyokhov where he met with his then-Yarovan counterpart Nikita Chekudayev. At present, Zaporizhia is a recipient of international aid from Yarova and Osorra, in 2018, receiving a total of $1.5 billion to support economic growth. Zaporizhia had been regarded as a potential candidate for League of Free Nations membership. However, since the dismissal of Yarova from the intergovernmental organisation, Zaporizhia has continued to align itself with its ally and has announced its rescission of candidacy efforts.

Osorra has similarly strong relations with Zaporizhia - being its main buyer of energy products and a major historical partner of the UPRZ. Osorrai companies have significantly invested in Zaporizhian energy infrastructure and helped construct several massive LNG terminals in the country. Osorrai companies have been some of the rare few to consistently invest in the country and help rebuild after the civil war. In 2020 Osorrapec signed a major agreement to buy and develop large Zaporizhian oil fields and construct a joint venture with the Zaproizhian oil industry known as Osorra Zaporizhia Joint Oil Concern. Through Sosya - Osorra has helped the Zaproizhian government engage in counterinsurgency efforts. Osorra has urged for reconciliation between Zaporizhia and Rovnoska and holds roundtables between the two governments in Cuzka.

Human rights

The Dzhokarian minority in the north have allegedly faced active repression by both the government and ethnic Zapo-Yarovar civilians.

Human rights in Zaporizhia are periodically reviewed by the East Artemian Human Rights Commission (EAHRC), a Yarovan-funded organisation which monitors the conduct of states in Eastern Artemia in relation to civil rights and political freedoms. Such reviews with which the government of the Republic of Zaporizhia and various foreign governments and human rights organisations have often disagreed. Zaporizhian authorities, their supporters, and other proponents claim that existing policies and enforcement measures are sufficient in safeguarding against human rights abuses. EAHRC has been largely successful in its promotion of perestroika and glasnost policies, which began to take effect in Zaporizhia from 2010 onwards — paving the way for the country’s democratisation. The Yarovan federal government has incentivised these reforms with the rolling out of sizeable international aid, which through the course of the past ten years has accumulated over $5 billion, with a record $1 billion in 2018 alone. A report from the EAHRC in 2007 stated that the Zaporizhian authorities have often been found to “violate the freedoms of speech, movement, and religion of its citizens and of others within its jurisdiction”. In recent years Osorrai billionaires have increased their funding towards these organizations and have called to "adjust the standards in light of ensuring Zaporizhian security". So far the EAHRC has refused to comment on the large deals Sosya had made with the country. Osorrai state media has called the EAHRC "harsh on a country recovering civil war".

Prior to the sweeping reforms of 2010, the senior leadership of Yarova referred to Zaporizhia as the “rump state of the communist UPRZ”. Yarova also criticised the MGB for its hand at the alleged torturing and killing of political opponents of the Zaporizhian government. Some human rights organisations have also highlighted the systemic repression of the Dzhokarian minority, which is found principally in the north of the country. One particularly brutal incident of ethnic violence in Yuzhnaya Dzhokariya Oblast gained traction in regional media, the attack and subsequent death of ethnic Dzhokarian Ibragim Yamadayev in 2006. Yamadayev, a 38-year-old lawyer based in Agishbatoy, was kidnapped while walking home one night after finishing work. His abductors, two ethnic Zapo-Yarovars from Koroyevsk and one Yarovar originally from Khanskoye-Chirbent, subjected Yamadayev to rat torture and videotaped his agonising death. Claims emerged that the recorded homicide was sold as a snuff film on the dark web. The initial defence by law enforcement that there was "no solid evidence to support the authenticity of the footage" ignited demonstrations across the country. Eventually, the three men were arraigned and each sentenced to five years in prison — a ruling regarded by some as insufficiently punitive.




By far the largest export of Zaporizhia is crude oil, as well as the nations primary method of securing foreign currency. The largest oil firm in the country is the joint venture Osorra Zaporizhia Joint Oil Concern between Osorrapec and the government. The concern has invested billions in modernizing and mantaining Zaporizhian oil infrastructure - especially after the civil war. Because of large Osorrai-backed investment oil production has actually increased since the UPRZ period.

Zaporizhian has little means of refining its crude oil into more complex products. For the most part, Rovnoskan, Osorrai, or Yarovar companies buy raw crude from the country and convert it into more complex products. In response to increasing enviromental regulations at home however, Yarovar DKPK has promised over 10 billion dollars over the next decade towards building modern plastics plants. The Zaporizhian government has made it a large priority to import 0 barrels of petrolueum by 2030 and has secured investments from large Yarovar oil interests.

Most liquified natural gas and crude oil exports still leave from Zaporizhian ports due to existing infrastructure from the UPRZ. Osorrai based MTPO in cooperation with Yarovar bank Imperiya has constructed around 3 LNG terminals in Zaproizhian ports. Since the civil war her ports have been drastically upgraded and retrofitted with modern technologies, capacity to handle larer ships, and more advanced cranes. Energy remains a sigificant source of growth for the Zaporizhian economy.
