A group of Aquila players from the server Devoted decided to start a new nation on CivClassics. MrLlamma originally scouted out Impasse territory since a lot of old Civcraft 3.0 Aquila players were settling there. After traveling east, MrLlamma spotted a player named RektTangle, who inhabited the small town of Lotus at the top of a mountain range. The valley below was a perfect spot to start a new town, and the early Coventhian settlers built a few initial wood houses for temporary shelter. Now that a location was secure, all that was needed was a name for the new nation. The name Aquila was dismissed immediately since the government structure was different in this iteration. The name Corvus was also thrown out after discussion. Eventually, GreatLordOz suggested naming the town after the Roman goddess of wells and springs, Coventina. After a few adjustments to the name to make it roll off the tongue better, Coventhia was born! Coventhia was officially formed on June 12th, 2017, by MrLlamma, sgtshannon, GreatLordOz, Nyxworld & IcyPigChicken.
Frostrock Valley is surrounded by towering cliffs to the southeast and expansive snowy plains to the north. To the north also lies the replica city of Third Street and a few map arts. To the east lies the Lotus Monastery originally founded by RektTangle. To the east also lies the Pirate's Cove Golf Course, Pele nether island and Pileus Mushroom island. To the South lies the Boreas Sea and Pirate Ship island. To the West lies the Icebox.
Politics and Government
Coventhia is a unitary state under a meritocracy lead by a leader and a council of three high councilors. The current government evolved from the old Aquilian constitution, who had a similar structure of government. Apart from the main government that handles both external and internal affairs, the power structure of Coventhia is further divided into:
- Head of Defense - Responsible for military and defensive affairs if the leader is unavailable.
- Mayor of Frostrock - Responsible for governing the city of Frostrock, who among a multitude of tasks is in charge of approving building plans and ensuring the proper functioning of the city.
Governmental positions are fairly restricted, with councilors being appointed by the leader and a consensus from the existing council members.
Due to the lack of a formal constitution, the exact powers of each governmental position are vague, however, this is done intentionally. In Aquila, the slow democratic process eventually bogged down the entire country and its ability to respond to any current happenings. Therefore, when coming up with a new system for the brand new nation of Coventhia, MrLlamma intentionally designed it to avoid this shortcoming.
The Council itself acts as a check on the leader, and for any controversial decisions it's typical for the leader to consult the council before any measures are taken. If there is a consensus from the entire council that the leaders decision is not the best future for the nation, the council can vote and in case of a unanimous vote, the decision can be overturned.
