Kitonese prehistoric mythology
Various Kaika sub-ethnicities have their own creation myth. However, Kaika peoples are distinguished from the Austronesians by their supposed ancestry from a prince who came from the kingdom of Ki in 230 CE from the island of Amakulara across the sea (Japan) with 300 attendants and 200 courtesans. This is the origin of the name Kaika, a Sanskrit term meaning of Ki. Prince Ki and his entourage became the ancestors of the Ki race and settled in present day Alawa, the northern tip of the island. The Ki prince then set up a kingdom called Wotuki (small Ki), based in Alawa. Traditionally, the direct descendants of Prince Ki lived in the Alawa territory, while some of his servants ventured southward.
According to legend, the Mihika (pygmies) had lived in the rainforests deep within the island. They were the kabu of the rainforests, the spirit guardians of the island. The Kis would spread along the coast, leaving the centre of the island alone. The early Kaikas struggled to adapt to the tropical climate, let alone the dense malarial rainforests, used to a sedentary lifestyle of rice cultivation rather than hunter gathering.
When Indians arrived in Kiton from the 7th century BCE, they had brought Vedic Sanskrit, pre-Hindu Vedic religion and Indian rituals and statecraft. The clans began to slowly come together to form kingdoms, and they began to adopt the court languages as their own. As languages began to die out, there were left a handful of languages on the island, which remain to this day. The Kitonese south was the most heavily Indianized, while in the north people still lived in loose tribal confederations. This political system of loose conglomeration would be the basis of the modern Kitonese ideology of confederalism.
In the 2nd century CE, Christianity had spread into Kiton, where it remained popular in the east and began to take on an indigenous Keika character, known as Saihan Orthodox Christianity. The tribes which adhered to Christianity named themselves Saihans and joined the Sarnya Saihana confederacy, occupying the areas of modern Cholchei, Arunaha and Hwassu. Sarnya Saihana was the biggest polity in Kiton, but did not dominate the island. It largely kept to itself in the mountainous northeast, largely isolated by the Wamuatikiri mountains.
The Sakans were a tribe who emerged from the Hwakahan who practiced Kithanovedism, who lived in the kingdom of Rajola. They were the dominant power on Kiton from the 5th century CE till the 20th century. The empire had vassal polities all over the island and claimed the name Kiton for themselves. They captured Alawa, the homeland of the Kaika people, where the mythical Wotuki kingdom once stood. As a trophy, the Sakanese king affixed the name of Alawa to the country, and his kingdom was the Alawa-Rajolan Empire. The city of Arjunanagara was the first Kitonese capital.
The King of Kha Lohi was overthrown by Kilaitan Sasahwahan, who became the warlord of Kha Lohi. States who overthrew their kings joined him as the Kaika Confederacy, with its first capital at Kuman Matha. The Kaika Confederacy went to war with the Sakanese Crown, defeated its king with popular support in 1932. Sasahwahan adopted his nom de guerre, Ashuyin Kajekurun as his new name and became the first President of a peaceful, federal and free Kiton.
World War II
A dialect of Vedic Sanskrit imported during the Indic Age, the language known as Kithanawaidika ("Vedic speech of the land of Ki") was esteemed throughout Kiton when it became the court language of the Sakan Empire and was used by the upper classes. It became liturgical langauge of Saihan Christianity, and was the language of the Kithanic Bible, or Salamagrantha. The Instrument of Federation designated the language as the national language of Kiton and renamed it Kitonese. Kitonese is spoken in professional situations, such as in the office; in federal media, in education and between unacquainted people. However, it is not a home language, as native languages tend to be spoken among family and friends, and its use has been on the decline since the 1990s in favour in Fuyaha Kitonese.
Fuyahan, otherwise known as Fuyaha Kitonese (Kitonese of the Capital), is a koine language used in Kiton. It originated in KSN, where the population is extremely diverse with large numbers of Kaikas of different linguistic groups forming a standard dialect of communication.
The Kaika Confederacy is consists of federal entities, namely:
- states (negara),
- federal cities (Kota Sri),
- federal territories (rajanegara), and
- the capital city (Kota Sri Nakanejra)
According to the Instrument of Confederacy, states are not allowed to add land to their territory without the consent of Congress, a stipulation to prevent conflict on territorial grounds between states. When the Kitonese government annexes land, it is provisionally governed as a federal territory and directly administered by the Confederacy until such a time as determined by a congressional committee that the territory is ready to be granted statehood or be fit to be divided between states.
Federal Territory of Alava and Rajola (1941 - 1944)
At the end of the Kithanic War in 1938, the Confederacy annexed all Sakanese territory and administered it as a provisional federal territory with its capital at Hwargadewa, the old Sakan capital. The northeastern Saihan states were eager to keep Alava-Rajola as a federal territory indefinitely. Giving their traditional enemies statehood would give them considerable power in Congress and also hinder maritime trade along the Injakulari River, the mouth of which the Sakans had held since the 18th century. They argued that the Sakanese territories, holding a large portion of the Kitonese west coast, would be better off under federal control and the profits of coastal maritime trade along the Sakanese coast be given to the federal government. The rest of the Confederacy, however, wished for the Sakanese to receive statehood to prevent divisions from occuring between the Sakanese and other Kaikas. The samitimats from the Kitonese southeast a compromise with the Saihans, establishing the Kitonese capital at the mouth of the Injakulari. In 1944, the Capital Act established the federal capital, Kota Sri Nakanejra and the legislative, judiciary and executive were all moved there. Simultaneously, Congress abolished the RNAS, which was succeded by the federal territories of Seyaula, Alawa and Chanakyakei, and the state of Solan-Hwakahan. Solan-Hwakahan was granted statehood because of the significant Hwakahan majority.
1944 - 1961
The territory of Alava-Rajola was split into the federal territories of Alawa, Bijayakaraehan, Seyaula and the island territory of Chanakyakei. Bijayakaraehan was located in northern Seyaula.
Kiton is a federal republic headed by the President (Sumerapati, "Sovereign lord")
