The South American kingdom was founded as an overseas territory of the [[Kingdom of Juclandia]], another micronation based in [[w:Romania|Romania]]. The [[Alios Agreement]], signed in [[2016]], resulted in the complete independence of Sabia and Verona as a micronation from Juclandia. Sabia and Verona is still a full member state of the [[Federal Union of Juclandian Lands]], and the Kingdom maintains a close relationship with [[Jucărești]]. Both nations share a long history together and have many cultural traits in common, the most notable of which is the recognition of [[w:Stuffed toys|stuffed toys]] as citizens, and their active participation in the nation's society and politics.
Sabia and Verona is a [[w:Parliamentary system|parliamentary democracy]] and [[w:Elective monarchy|elective]] [[w:Constitutional monarchy|constitutional monarchy]]. The executive nominally rests on the [[Monarchy of Sabia and Verona|Monarch]] (the head of state), officially styled as "King/Queen of the Valtirians" (''Rexa Valtirgarann''). The head of government, by convention a stuffed toy, is known as the [[EnkâkourakPrime Minister of Sabia and Verona|Prime Minister]]. The [[w:Unicameralism|unicameral]] [[Parliament of Sabia and Verona|Parliament]] (''Sarenâ'') is the Kingdom's [[w:Legislature|legislature]], and the [[Tribunal of Sabia and Verona|Tribunal]], composed of five judges, serves as the supreme court of justice of Sabia and Verona. Since 2015, [[Tarik of Sabia and Verona|Tarik of Kârjasary]] has been King, and [[Shounn Virny]] of the [[National Artists' Guild]] is the current EnkâkourakPrime Minister. Elections are held on a yearly basis; the last parliamentary elections were held on [[Sabioveronese general election, 2016|18 September 2016]].
===The Socialist–Unity hegemony===

[[Napoléon Bleuberrie]] became the first leader of Sabia and Verona. At first, the Kingdom was intended to be modelled after [[w:North Korea|North Korea]], and [[w:Korean language|Korean]] was chosen as Sabia and Verona's national language. The [[Socialist Party (Sabia and Verona)|Socialist Party]], founded by Bleuberrie, led Sabioveronese politics in the predominantly left-leaning [[Courts of Sabia and Verona]], the Kingdom's new legislature. The opposition to Bleuberrie and his Socialist Party unified in November 2012 in the form of the [[Unity Party]], headed by Graham Müntz and [[Osez Kóvérsz]]. Political stability between these two factions was secured on 16 December 2012, when Müntz and Bleuberrie signed the Karasal Treaty, which effectively created the [[Commission for the Preservation of Democracy]],<ref name="languagereformandkarasaltreaty">[ "Language reform, Karasal Treaty and Ryəmoništa"]. ''[[The SiV Phonograph]]''. 16 December 2012. Retrieved 21 December 2016.</ref> which acted the Kingdom's judiciary. The Socialist Party's rule over Sabia and Verona ended at the [[Sabioveronese general election, 2012|2012 election]], when the Unity Party won by a landslide and Kóvérsz became [[EnkâkourakPrime Minister of Sabia and Verona]]. As the nation drifted away from its initial inspiration on the DPRK, [[Sabian language]], a conlang designed for the region of [[Sabia]] became much more popular and in December 2012 it was chosen as the nation's sole official language as Korean failed to settle. This consolidated Sabian nationalism, as Sabians began to distance themselves from [[Verona|Veronans]], who were perceived as completely different individuals. The Unity Party embraced Sabian nationalism, which brought forth dissidence and opposition to the new Kóvérsz administration. The [[Free Suyu Front]] was founded by opponents of Bleuberrie and Müntz. The FSF acted as a clandestine group until its legalisation by the Courts in January 2013, when it became the country's third political party.<ref>[ "FSF declared official party; Schubert-Moss in controversy]".

Three social phenomenons deeply impact the Sabioveronese society during this era: the revival of [[Pahunism]] with the enthronement of [[High Priest of the Pahun|High Priestess]] [[Saria Josephine|Senna Ashminasuunu]], the establishment of the neighbouring [[Lycem|Realm of Lycem]] to the north by Kârjasary, and the rise of Pashqari (Veronan) nationalism with groups like the [[Pashqari People's Party]].<ref name=tegof>[ "Tegula recognises Pashqar language, PMM celebrates"]. ''[[The SiV Phonograph]]''. 18 May 2013. Retrieved 21 December 2016.</ref> As these factors diversified the Sabioveronese culture, Sabia and Verona became a [[w:Melting pot|melting pot]] with contrasting groups of people that would shape the Kingdom in a unique way. Though initially the Pashqari were stigmatized, especially by far-right Sabian nationalists,<ref name=dices>[ ""Righteous Faith League" ceases operations"]. ''[[The SiV Phonograph]]''. 1 June 2013. Retrieved 21 December 2016.</ref> they eventually became integrated into the new Sabioveronese society.
Bleuberrie won the [[Sabioveronese general election, May 2013|May 2013 election]], though he would fail to complete his six-month term. On 25 July, 2013, Bleuberrie and a group of loyal [[Military of Sabia and Verona|SVRAF]] generals [[2013 Sabioveronese coup d'état attempt|attempted to overthrow the system]] and declare independence from [[Juclandia]],<ref name=coup>[ "Failed self-coup attempt: the end of Bleuberrie"]. ''[[The SiV Phonograph]]''. 25 July 2013. Retrieved 21 December 2016.</ref> but he ultimately failed as he lacked support from sectors of the military and the general people. Air Force General [[Rubén D. Hernández]] took over the nation as interim Enkâkourak Prime Minister until elections were called again. This happened on [[Sabioveronese general election, September 2013|September 2013]], when former Unity Party [[Caenia]] politician [[Ann Stefanović]] and her newly founded [[Progressive Coalition (Sabia and Verona)|Progressive Coalition]] won by a landslide against Kóvérsz.<ref>[ "Stefanović wins the race"]. ''[[The SiV Phonograph]]''. 15 September 2013. Retrieved 21 December 2016.</ref> This represented the end of the control of the Socialist and Unity parties in Sabia and Verona, as the Socialist Party split into smaller factions such as the [[Communist Party of Sabia and Verona|KMCW]] and the [[Roots Party]] and Unity lost the population's support. Stefanović proved to be a decisive and effective leader, driving Sabia and Verona back into stability as the nation coped to restore from the aftermath of the July coup. The new Enkâkourak Prime Minister successfully led Sabia and Verona through the February reforms in which the Kingdom went from being an overseas territory of Juclandia with limited autonomy to a nearly independent province of the [[Federal Union of Juclandian Lands]],<ref>[ "All good things must come to an end"].

===The Isadoran era===
Stefanović concluded her term on 1 October 2014 and gave way to the leader of the newly founded [[Left Alliance]], [[Léon Galieri]].<ref name=sivfon>[ "Left Alliance wins the election"]. ''[[The SiV Phonograph]]''. 20 March 2014. Retrieved 21 December 2016.</ref> The Left Alliance had been founded as a merger between the dying Socialist Party and the KMCW. Galieri's term was stable and calm; the political stability enjoyed during these six months allowed art and literature to flourish, and [[Lycene mythology]] became a popular subject among Sabioveronese intellectuals as part of the cultural exchange with the recently annexed region of [[Lycem]].
At the [[Sabioveronese general election, September 2014|September 2014]], [[Unity Party|Unity]]'s [[Bertrand Rivière]] was elected as EnkâkourakPrime Minister.<ref>[ "Conservative victory: Rivière to become Enkâkourak"]. ''[[The SiV Phonograph]]''. 14 September 2014. Retrieved 21 December 2016.</ref> Rivière, described as an "agressive Sabian nationalist and fiscal conservative", made massive reforms in the Kingdom, aided by his mainly Sabian Legislative Courts. He renamed the upper and lower houses of the Courts, demoted the [[Pashqar language|Pashqar]] and [[Lycene language|Lycene languages]] to "national languages", while describing Sabian as the only "official" language of Sabia and Verona, and "nationalized" the [[Church of the Pahun|Pahunist Church]], naming Queen Isadora the new [[High Priest of the Pahun|High Priestess of the Pahun]].<ref name=consabian>[ "Dreaming big: The Aishayerovê and the beginning of a new era"]. ''[[The SiV Phonograph]]''. 1 October 2014. Retrieved 21 December 2016.</ref> A new peerage system was introduced, a move clearly opposed by the constitution but approved by the Courts nonetheless. Rivière also oversaw the territorial expansion of the Kingdom: Sabia and Verona's reclamation of the Sournêliádin Gardens and the Eastern Lands into the TANSUX, the Special Territory of the Eastern Lands, was one of the most popular moves of the Rivière administration.
But Rivière's reforms couldn't derive attention from the predominant inactivity Sabia and Verona had submerged into. By mid-2015 the legislative power of Sabia and Verona was completely dormant, and the system Rivière had devised proved to be a failure in praxis. Since the judicial power in Sabia and Verona was directly dependent to the Legislative Courts, two of Sabia and Verona's three political powers had been frozen for months. In 12 July 2015 Rivière met with the Lt. Secretaries of the Sabioveronese prefectures and after obtaining approval from the Queen, effectively dissolved the Sabioveronese legislature. Although the move was not precisely constitutional, Rivière defended the decision by saying the 2014 constitution had not foreseen a scenario in which the legislature could render itself deedless. A popular referendum to elect a new leader in the nation was organized, and though the turnout was considerably low (at 64%), it was recognized as legitimate by the Crown. Rivière was elected to become High Commissioner of Sabia and Verona as an interim head of state. Rivière's cabinet became a transitional council in the meantime. Sabioveronese authorities called the act the "official fall into inactivity", admitting the problem had been a reality for months.
