Borduria, Officially Imperial Dominion of Borduria, is one of six provinces and the imperial Dominion of the Kingdom of Sildavia. It is governed by an absolute monarchy titled by the Monarch of Sildavia, now held by Queen-Czarina Maria.

Origins

Borduria is named after the fictional country featured in The Adventures of Tintin, the comics series by the acclaimed Belgian cartoonist Hergé, and was depicted in King Ottokar's Sceptre (1938–1939), The Calculus Affair (1954–1956), being also mentioned in Tintin and the Picaros (1975–1976). Bordúria is named after the work of Hergé, but it does not claim any fictional territory.

History

Borduria was founded on 9 March 2021 as the Province of Moltus, along with the other provinces of Sildavia. On that same day the Solaryan Empire had been designed by Queen Maria to be founded, and to be merged with Sildavia, but the project was considered unfeasible. The project of the Solaryan Empire was on hiatus until the middle of late August of that year, when a new project was conceived to reform the Solarya, and transform the then Province of Moltus into the Imperial Dominion of Borduria. The Queen then issued in an extraordinary act the Royal Act No. 01 of the Kingdom of Sildavia, which created Borduria as an imperial dominion, immersing the Solaryan territories and the former province in a new administration. As Borduria has imperial dominion status, the queen received the additional title of Czarina and Autocrat of All Bordurias, and went on to officially sign in the province's documents as Her Imperial and Royal Majesty, the Queen-Czarina.

Politics

Internal Affairs

Borduria is directly governed by the Queen-Czarina, and is divided into two territories, Lathunia and Rosprov, in Lathunia is the provincial capital, Vytka.

Foreign Affairs

Sildavian diplomacy is governed by the principles of non-intervention, self-determination, international cooperation and coordenation and the peaceful settlement of conflicts. Sildavian foreign policy is also based on the Conference of Santiago and is conducted by the Queen, that has ultimate authority over foreign policy and is tasked with reviewing and considering all diplomatic nominations and international treaties, as well as legislation relating to Sildavian foreign policy. Since May 2020, Sildavia adopted the Treaty of Persenburg as one of the pillars for international recognition.

Geography

Bordurian lands are enclaved in the city of Barão de Cocais, in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil; close to the Tropic of Capricorn, where the shoreline is oriented east–west, and share land borders with Brazil. Its size, relief, climate, and natural resources make Borduria geographically simple, with Atlantic forests and a Subtropical climate. With a total small area, Borduria spans only one time zone, the UTC−3, and the summer time zone UTC−2.

Climate

The climate of Borduria comprises temperatures average between 9 and 35 °C (48 and 95 °F). The Köppen climate classification of the region is tropical savanna climate (Aw), milder due to the elevation, with humid/warm summers and dry/mild winters. Sildavian is located about 500 kilometres (310 mi) from the sea.

Even though inter-seasonal differences are not as pronounced as they are in temperate places, there is a contrast between spring and summer, and between fall and winter. The coldest month is generally July, with a lowest recorded temperature of 2 °C (36 °F). The hottest month is usually January, with a highest recorded temperature of 38.4 °C (101 °F).

The 852-metre (2,795 ft) elevation of Borduria helps a little in cooling the country, suppressing high maximum air temperatures experienced in nearby cities at lower altitudes. Sildavian climate is mild throughout the year. Temperatures vary between 11 and 31 °C (52 and 88 °F), the average being 22 °C (72 °F). Winter is dry and mostly sunny, and summer is rainy.
