The Fiefdom of Malesia is a small democracy located on the region of South of Heaven. Malesia comprises the southern tip of the main island, Lucifia and smaller islets, most notably Yuciferos and Bruijnland. Neighbouring Rollesia occupies the rest of Lucifia. Malesia is noted as being abundant in forests and home to animals not seen anywhere else in the world.
Malesia is a democracy, although is has come under intense light lately after a series of ruthless actions taken by the government have led to the deaths of many of its inhabitants.
Malesia is currently a member of the United Nations.

First Human Contact
The first humans to arrive in what is now Malesia were Dutch explorers in the 16th Century. They were looking for new lands to live upon, when they were shipwrecked by one of the small islets. The survivors were forced to swim to the main island, whereupon they started a small community, now known today as Timebridge (Dutch Brugtijde). The small group of settlers slowly made their way along the coast, where they encountered perfect beaches and creatures never seen before.
English Occupation 1700-1849
Malesia was visited by English explorers in 1689, where they declared the region under English control. From there, villages began to prosper, with more being built yearly. By 1750, much of the coast had been taken by urban areas, with Amstelveen being founded in 1752. It was soon discovered that there were coal mines nearby which were mined heavily to fuel the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. As the demand for coal increased, the size of Amstelveen increased and soon it had a population of over 250,000.
By 1800 many settlers from England and the Netherlands had moved to the region. With neighbours Rollesia gaining independence, Malesia sought to become to Free State. But with coal in steady demand, the UK were unwilling to part with Malesia. Regular coal mine strikes ensued, with the UK running out of coal. Eventually the UK conceded and offered Malesia to be ruled by neighbouring Rollesia. A 65-35% vote in favour of Rollesian rule brought the two countries together in 1849.
Rule Under Rollesia 1849-1924
With new leaders, things became more difficult for Malesia. They could not rely on their parent nation on sustenance and eventually had to export their surplus weapons to have enough money to import food, as there were no suitable areas to grow crops. Rollesia did as best they could to keep Malesia sustained but by 1900 many Malesians were living in poverty and were ready to jump ship back to the Netherlands and UK.
In 1921, Rollesian diplomat Nej Enilño demanded that Malesia be thrown away by Rollesia as he thought Malesia were a "parasite on the backside of our beloved country". Officials in Rollesia contemplated this move. After three years, a vote was cast in Malesia whether they would want independence. A resounding 98-2% victory in favour of independence gave Malesia free rule.
Recent History 1924-
Shortly after gaining independence, the then President Rickaard Marschall-Dorinus set about attracting tourists to Malesia to gain the income they needed. He commisioned posters of Malesia to be sold worldwide, which proved to be the key. In the years that followed, tourism in Malesia skyrocketed.
Up until the 1960s tourism was the only major industry. President Daavid Linden tried to find another industry where his people could prosper from. He founded the first of many retail companies in Amstelveen -whose population had risen to 800,000- and with the retail industry climbing higher, it was discovered that the sea surrounding Malesia was rich in oil. It was documented that the oil reserves would keep Malesia prosperous for over a hundred years. Oil rigs were immediately assembled and sent out to sea. The extraction of oil was closely monitered to make the oil last as long as possible.
In 2006 a scandal arose surrounding the president Simon Turner and his decision to allow capital punishment back into Malesia. Inevitably, riots ensued throughout the country, many people arrested then executed. This brought a dark light on Malesia from the rest of the First World, and Simon Turner was immediately disposed from power. A national vote saw current president Joric Van Rijn ascend to the presidency and he is currently working to bring order back to Malesia.
Malesia lies close to the Arctic Circle but receives a warm near-tropical climate, with hot summers and mild winters, allowing for some of the northernmost rainforests on Earth. Lying between Greenland and Norway it sits directly in the Gulf Stream, giving it its abnormal climate.
Malesia is divided into 23 provinces.

Since gaining independence from Rolliesia in 1924, the two countries have kept close links with each other, opening trade routes together to faraway countries.
The waters of the Arctic Ocean around Lucifia to 20 nautical miles are owned by Rolliesia and Malesia, with land boundaries reaching into the ocean. Malesia itself occupies a small portion of the main island, with high mountains dropping dramatically down to the sea. Most of the mountains are forested and uninhabited, with only minor settlements dotted around the cliff areas. Many international expeditions have traversed the winding mountain paths with new animal species being discovered every week.
Most large settlements are built along the coast, where the golden beaches attract tourists from all over the globe. Most outlying islets are inhabited, many of them excessively urbanised with little scenery left. A small number of volcanic islets, however, remain untouched by human hands and have lush forests on the volcanic slopes. Regular cruises take tourists sightseeing these islets.
The north of the country has summer highs in excess of 35°C. Winter has highs of 15°C.
The islands have similar temperatures, the highs being slightly higher than on the mainland.
Malesia has a small economy, based mainly on trade from the larger countries. With help from Rollesia, its economy is becoming larger. Economic growth is good because of the low unemployment figures, with the vast majority of the workforce in the tourism and retail industries. According to Malesia Head Economic Adviser, Jan Mellencamp, tourism is the main reason for Malesia's economic explosion in recent years. Most industrial companies based in Malesia are small to medium-sized, making a good foothold for a future continuation of the current growth trend.
The main export from Malesia is oil which is extracted from the oil-rich seabeds around the islets. Second to oil is fish, which is caught and sold in great quantities. Deforestation is currently outlawed but should this become an option this may become the second biggest export in Malesia.
Main exports are:
Most imports come from the World Superpowers. These include, but are not limited to:
Oil is the main natural resource in Malesia. The rich oil-fields are likely to prove fruitful for decades to come, as they were only recently discovered adn the government has controlled the usage of oil, being able therefore to export excess oil.
There are coal and iron ore mines dotted in the forests near the capital, Amstelveen. These have semi-permanent mines, used only in the autumn season, being mined to fuel coal fires in the Amstelveen houses for winter.
Due to the country's size and geography, Malesia has one classified city, the other regional capitals being towns by law.
Many people who live on the east and west coasts are either immigrants from Rollesia or descendants of those who lived there before the independence of Malesia. In these areas, as much as 90% of the population have family roots in Rollesia. The south coast residents and those living on the islets are descended mainly from the Dutch who settled the islands in the 1500's, which is where the majority of the place names originate from. Dutch is still the principal language, albeit a rough dialect, as well as an equally rough English dialect. A small percentage, 4-5% are descended from Denmark with a similar proportion from both Germany and France, although these people have Dutch as their first tongue.
Malesia is predominantly Christian, with over 80% of the population Christian. About 10% are Jewish and the rest are either Atheist or Agnostic. Most Christians are members of the Malesian Evangelical Church of which 70% of Malesian Christians are members of.
Malesia boasts an outstanding education system, with a high majority of pupils going into University. It houses one of Lucifia's most famous universities, the Haans J. Brecht University in The Keep, founded in 1967 by noted chemist Haans J. Brecht. He funded the building of the university out of his own pocket without government interference, hiring builders and buying materials himself. For his work in education, a national holiday was declared on his birthday, August 27th.
Languages taught in Malesian schools are Malesian Dutch and Malesian English, plus in some provinces, standard English and Dutch. In university, the possibilities are near limitless. Students can study English, Dutch, French, German, Spanish, Russian, Yiddish, Arabic, Hindi, Chinese, Japanese, and smaller American and African languages.
Because of the lay of the land, there are few roads in Malesia, a major road traverses the rocky coast. It is the only means to travel from the east coast to west. Minor roads wind their way into the forests where they end at outposts and small communities deep inside the forests.
The major roads in Malesia have a maximum speed limit of 80mph, considerably higher than many other countries in the world. Although speed limits are higher, traffic accidents are significantly lower the their counterparts in Europe and North America.
There are no bridges or tunnels linking the mainland with the islets, a regular ferry service transports cars and lorries to the various islands. There are also separate ferry services for island-to-island travelling.
