Hinata (In japanese: 日南田 or ひなた) is a state-island located in the japanese sea, specifically in the Tsushima strait. Hinata was created in fall 2018 (year I in the Hinata calendar) by japanese and taiwanese immigrants. Power is exercised by the President (head of state) and the Secretary of State (head of government). The first is elected directly by the people, the second is the leader of the legislative majority and is elected by the Hinata National Assembly. National Assembly is the unicameral national legislature of Hinata, it passes all laws, write and amended the constitution and supervises the work of the government.

History

Before the foundation of the Hinata State

From the old stage of the island there is little information yet, however it is known that there was previous civilization on the island since some relics and archaeological remains prove it. When the current inhabitants of the island arrived, they only found a small settlement with two indigenous people in Takamachi north area, who, despite apparently not having had any relationship with beings from outside the island, understood and could communicate in a rudimentary way in Japanese. Both in Takamachi and in Chûô buildings were also found in ruins.

Begginings and foundation

In 2018, a ferry with passengers heading towards Nagasaki was wrecked by a large storm. Five passengers of that ship, among whom was who was President of Hinata later Tarô Nakajima, survived the accident and arrived semi unconscious on the island of Hinata. The castaways saw that the island was deserted (in fact, there were indigenous people in Takamachi, but at that time it was not known). Since those people had nowhere to go, they decided to stay on that island and start a new life. From then on, new people began to arrive to inhabit the island and began to open the first shops. In the summer of the same year, Tarô Nakajima proclaimed himself Hinata's President, although shortly afterwards he called general elections due to the pressures of the small group of socialist ideology that was beginning to stand out headed by Ryūji Midoriya. Tarô Nakajima and his political formation was elected by an absolute majority after those elections and the Socialists also obtained representation in the newly founded National Assembly. From that moment a constituent process would begin that would end with a constitutional referendum.

Language

The oficial language of Hinata is the Japanese. Around the 90 percent of the Hinatians know and domine this language, but about 50 percent of people can not read or write mainly because of the characters and ideograms, since they have not received basic schooling. The government of Hinata is forced in official communications, as well as for example in the electoral ballots to use few or no Chinese ideograms or kanjis, writing practically all the texts in hiragana syllabary, since it is the most well-known writing by the population. This is a problem for cultural relations with Japan, so groups of linguistic volunteers are already developing free literacy programs for adults.

Religion

Hinata not has an oficial religion, but exists an important comunity of Nichiren Shōshū buddhists and Hinata deists (a Hinata exclusive religion). The 33.33 percent of the population is atheist or agnostical.
