Schaumburg (Fleckenwalder German : Schaumburg), fully the Principality of Schaumburg (Fleckenwalder German : Fürstentum Schaumburg) is a unitary semi-authoritarian constitutional monarchy in central Alisna. Schaumburg is bordered to the north by Jumièges, Questers, and Sylva, to the east by Berry, to the west by Styria and Sylva, and to the south by Silgadin. Schaumburg is a landlocked country, and neither possesses a navy nor a coastline. Schaumburg has traditionally been in the middle of hostilities between its three neighbouring great powers, Berry, Questers, and Styria, and as a result it has tried to maintain itself equally independent from all three.

old history

Since the Valley Revolution (1986) which re-established the monarchy in the Treaty of Timsuano and coronation of Anna Sophie II, Schaumburg has suffered from sporadic episodes of violence caused by a three-sided conflict between the Berrian-backed pro-democracy National Liberation Army terrorist group and its paramilitaries, the Alpinian-backed fascist Schutzbund terrorist group and its paramilitary branch and the Schaumburger law enforcement agencies and military, however despite the occasional urban fights and bombings, the Schaumburger economy blossomed thanks to foreign investment (mostly from the Firema investment fund), starting a transition from an agrarian nation to an economy based on winter tourism, dairy production and different financial services.

Schaumburg is one of the last authoritarian monarchies in which the sovereignty is shared between the monarch, Dei Gratia and the people, represented by the Tagsatzung, the national unicameral parliament. Surrounded by either republics and constitutional monarchies, Schaumburg survives as one of the few countries in the world where the monarch still plays an important role in the government, leading the government and being in charge of the foreign and military policies as well as having both the right of legislative initiative and considerable veto powers.
