The State of Etiwanda, or Etiwanda is the one of the seven states in the Austrovian Empire. It is largest state with a population of exactly 13. Founded on August 18, 2015 as Dirigeville, it was the seat of government when Austrovia was a republic.
Etiwanda was founded as Dirigeville on August 18, 2015. It served as the capital of the Federation of Pugnasia and the home of the President. After Pugnasia's downfall and the annexation of East Pugnasia, Dirigeville was renamed Etiwanda. It was named after the surrounding community and school.
It was apart of Pugnasia's successor states, like the Great Californian Empire and the Greater Federation of New Pugnasia, and eventually the New Pugnasian Empire. After the collapse of these powers, Etiwanda, like most of the other states, ceased to exist until the creation of New America.
New America saw the re foundation of several states, including Etiwanda. Etiwanda was declared the capital state of the Federation of California after its creation and served as the Congressional capital of the Austrovian Republic and later Empire until the foundation of the Reichstag.

The Senate is the legislative power of the state. The Senate acts as somewhat a executive power, creating laws and keeping other branches in check. The Senate is filled with elected representatives from each district of the state. These Senators then represent their district and vote on laws that may benefit their district.
