The Federative Kingdom of Rélam (English :ɹejam; Spanish: rejam; Pronounced "RAY-yahm), more commonly known as Relam or Reyam is a South American constitutional monarchy located in present day Ecuador and Colombia, along with some parts of Peru, Panama, and Venezuela.

Before the European conquests of South America, Relam was inhabited by Amerindians, most notably the Inca, but after the establishment of New Spain, and the Viceroyalties of Peru and New Granada, Spanish settlers outnumbered Amerindians. After the independence wars of Simon Boliviar, Gran Colombia was established. Gran Colombia soon fractured into Colombia and Venezuala, and a new monarchy, known as the Garciana Dynasty established rule in the area.

The powerful dynasty renamed Colombia into Garcian, and then into Relam or Reyam, and ruled the nation even though several attempts were made to defeat them. But in 1914, the government sided with the Germans and Austrians in the First World War. At this time, a split in the family occurred, creating the new Marquesin Dynasty to take control and re-establish Colombia as a republic, this time with a Marquesin monarch as head of state.

Today, Relam maintains a powerful position in Latin America as an economic power with the likes of Brazil and Mexico.

History

Pre-Columbian Era

Before European conquest, Relam was inhabited by Amerindians, such as the Muisica, Quechua, Tairona, and Wayuu, along with several other Amerindian groups, some of which remain contacted to this very day. Many

The Amerindian Kogi people of Relam

of these groups died out after the introduction of Old World diseases into the Americas, while many others nearly died out, but managed to survive and recover from the diseases. The uncontacted peoples of Relam however, are not safe from these diseases because they are uncontacted.

Several empires and major civilizations have come and go from this region, from the Chimu Empire, to the Norte Chico civilazation. The Inca Empire also maintained a presence in the area, with its Chinchasuyu province reaching as far as modern-day Colombia.

Viceroyalties and Gran Colombia

After the establishment of the Viceroyalties of Peru and New Granada, immigration of Spanish settlers into the area flourished, as attempts were made by the Spanish monarchy to annihilate any Amerindian opposition, such as the defeat of the Neo-Incan State, and others.

After the establishment of Gran Colombia, Simon Bolivar became president, and a democracy was created in present-day Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Panama, and parts of Peru, and Brazil. His vision was for a united Spanish state in Gran Colombia, but unfortunately, his vision faltered as regional rebellions took place in Gran Colombia, and in 1835, Gran Colombia split into Venezuela and Colombia.

As a result of the fracture, Gran Colombia was swiped into a coup lead by Cruz Garciana, a prominent and rich politician of Gran Colombia, whom with the help of several powerful leaders, took Colombia under their control in 1842, causing Colombia to become an absolute monarchy.

Garciana Dynasty

Flag of the Kingdom of Relam

The Garacian dynasty would rename Colombia into Garcian in 1843, and Relam/Reyam in 1856. During the rule of the

Garcian Dynasty, slow, but tedious democratization occurred, in which the monarch would lose more and more permissions as the years went on. The year Garciana would turn into a constitutional m During this time, 3 rulers would take control of Garcian and Relam: Cruz Garciana, Sofia Garciana, and Nicolás Garciana. Each maintain order and prosperity in the nation, even though many were opposed to them.

Surprisingly, the public was not too opposed to the rule of the Garcians for most of the 19th century due to the prosperity being created by them, but in 1904, a new ruler named Rico Garciana took control.

Rico was quite unfit to rule, being at the young age of 17 when he was appointed monarch. Many were opposed to his weak and naive decisions, which ultimately resulted in deadly consequences for the nation. In 1914, the First World War began. Rico being quite naive, decided to enter the war on the side of the Germans and Austrians, angering many in the nation, and in South America.

World War One

During world war one, King Rico of Relam joined the side of the Germans and Austrians on December 16th, 1914, angering every South American nation bordering Relam. Venezuela, Peru, and Brazil joined the war on the side of the allies, while a split in the royal family occurred, with Rico's cousin Olivar renamed his last named to Marquesin, and declared war on the Garciana Dynasty.

During the war, Brazil and Peru struggled to make much advances due to the Amazon rainforest, while Venezuela was struggling from economic depression. However, the Marquesin Dynasty slowly attained land starting from Medellín, making their way to Bogota.

With the help from Brazilian army, on July 6th, 1918, the Marquesins took over Bogota, the capital of Relam at the

Marquesin military boats in WWI

time by bombing Bogota with more than 75 different bombs. The bombings destroyed 75% of Bogota, and rendered the original palace for the royals completely annihilated. The central regions were rendered unusable, and measures were required to reconstruct the city. Around 1.7 million civilians and army men died due to the war.

Due to the war, the city of Bogota was split into two distinct cities, with a national park right in the middle of former Bogota to commemorate the victims, and to allow for Bogota to reconstruct itself. Today, Bogota is split between Usaquén and Santa Fe, with the former being more populous and well known, and the latter being less safe and less populous.

Independence

Before the main World War was over, the Garcians who remained loyal to Rico were executed, while Rico was tortured, and then executed in front of a large crowd in Medellín. The capital was moved to Medellín as Bogota was reconstructed, and the independence, or emergence of the Federative Kingdom of Relam commenced on August 7th, when Olivar Marquesin was crowned King of Relam. His first declaration was to make Relam a constitutional monarchy, in which he the sovereign would have no powers except for diplomatic missions, the ability to veto specific bills, and war declarations.

On September 15th, the first President of Relam, Alejandro Mendoza was elected by the people of Relam, beating

Early Times

During the early times of Relam, the country was still recovering from the First World War. Bogota and several other cities were still in shambles, and separatists still were present, the most notable of which wanted the provinces of Lara and Laguna as part of Venezuela.

Also during this time, many called for the king to be dethroned, and for Relam to become a full republic like its neighbors. Even bills were passed in the Congress for the dethroning of the king, but all 6 of them failed. During this time, King Olivar passed away from natural causes, and was replaced by his daughter Queen Tlemenca in 1940

During the Second World War, Relam joined the allies when Pearl Harbour was bombed, along with the rest of the continent. Relamese troops focused mostly on defeating Japan, but a few battled Germany and Italy in Europe. A total of 3,400 Relamese were killed in the war.

Post-WWII

After WWII, western Panama declared independence in 1947 from Relam, and with help from American troops, the Panamanian forces drove the Relamese troops into thee jungles of Panama. In the Treaty of Panama City, it was stated that the regions that did not gain independence with Panama would be autonomous under Relamese rule.

Amazonian Guerrilla forces training in Puerto Carreño

In 1956, a minor guerrilla war took place in Amazonas Vichada and Amazonas Loreto, in which communist forces attempted to make Amazonas a state in South America. The forces were minuscule, but thanks to the forests, the war went on for decades until 1985, when the last stronghold of the communists was taken.

In 1987, Queen Tlemenca was replaced by her daughter Queen Serena after Tlemenca died of natural causes. Serena was only 17 when she became sovereign.

Twenty-First Century

In the late 20th and early 21st century, Relam experienced an economic boom, in which the economy of Relam diversified, especially in business. The Great Recession did cause some hiccups here and there, but Relam was able to recover from it, and completely recuperate in 2015.

Politics

Relam is divided into three special categories: Regions, Provinces, and Departments.

Provinces and Territories

Relam contains 14 provinces, plus the capital region of Medellín. Relam also holds custody over the Galapagos Islands and Archipelago of San Andrés as special territories, which are attributed and treated just like provinces, but with more autonomy.

Royal Family

Queen Selena, Queen of Relam

As a constitutional monarchy, Relam has a king/queen as head of state. The monarch has very little power, with only declaring war, acting as figurehead, and being able to veto/announce specific bills that involve structural government changes.

However, a unique power that the monarch has is being able to exercise emergency powers in times of strife, such as war, political upheaval, or the death of the president. When times like this occur, the monarch can take charge of the nation as head of government temporarily until the president is able to take back charge.

The current monarch is Queen Selena.

Demographics

Largest Cities

In Relam, the largest city is often a very confusing and difficult city to choose, as Guayaquil, Maracaibo, and Usaquén each have populations less than 25,000 people apart. Its a very common sight to see the largest city of Relam to change every time a census is conducted. As of the inception of the 2015 national census, Guayaquil is the largest city at 4,175,582, followed by Maracaibo, and then Usaquén. However, in some studies, the placings may switch depending on metro, city proper, slums, and other circumstances.

There is also some confusion between Quito and Valencia, along with Cali and Medellín.
