History

The Kingdom of Shaanxi, or Shaanxi, is a country in Asia formed in 2018 following the secession of the Canton Confederation after a massive earthquake struck the Tai-Hei Mountains in Shaanxi in 2017. The mountains already formed a natural boundary between Shaanxi and the rest of China. With Beijing preoccupied by the damage reaching as far as Tiananmen Square and destroying the PRC's underground nuclear stockpile, Shaanxi, as well as Sichuan and Inner Mongolia, seized the opportunity to secede from China. During the Republic Civil War (2019-27), the province of Shaanxi joined the independent state of Shaanxi. During this time neo-communists invaded and occupied parts of greater Shaanxi before being repelled. Meanwhile, a military coup installed a junta that controlled the new state until it was overthrown by allies of the late Chiangsiu Chou, the father of Queen Michelle.

Michelle Chou, who has been evacuated to the United Kingdom following the assassination of her father by communists loyal to Beijing who opposed secession, returned to Shaanxi to assist in its development. She instead claimed power as Shaanxi's royal head of state while drafting a new constitution that established Shaanxi's government as a constitutional monarchy similar to the United Kingdom. While the monarchy is mostly figurative under the constitution, Queen Michelle still wields considerable power and influence due to her intellect, legal training, and network of influential political and corporate figures. The House of Magistrates, the upper house of parliament, will choose her successor unless it amends the constitution in light of Queen Michelle's death or abdication to alter the path to succession or possibly eliminate the monarchy altogether.

History is important in Shaanxi, especially since the monarchy is a reminder of regional history. Xi'an is located near Changan, the capital of the Western Xia Kingdom before it merged with Imperial China over 4,000 years ago. Xi'an then became the imperial capital through numerous dynasties until the capital was moved to Beijing. Shaanxi has engaged in numerous projects to commemorate the culture and heritage of the Western Xia Kingdom and Shaanxi's historical importance within China for the last four millennia. This has also drawn interest and constant overt and shadow activity from arcanoarchaeologists working on behalf of The Atlantean Foundation and the Apep Consortium.

Major Cities

Xi'an The national capital is a mix of tradition and modernity. It is the seat of government while also serving as a major industrial center within China. However, it also celebrates the cultural heritage that comes from being the imperial capital through various dynasties and also being the gateway to Changan, the capital of the Western Xia Kingdom. Numerous Japanacorps do business in Shaanxi, especially Renraku, Shiawase, and MCT. Ares Macrotechnology also operates in the capital. Wanguo Anbu (Roughly, "Shadow State"), Shaanxi's intelligence agency, operates in Xi'an.

Taiyuan The second-largest city, Taiyuan is an even larger industrial center than Xi'an. It is focused on massive industrialization efforts involving mining and heavy manufacturing.
