Laurentia (/lɔːɹˈɛnʃə/, officially the Serene Republic of Laurentia) is a mercantilist republic on CivReign.

It is a centralized state with a densely concentrated population based around its capital city of Serena.

The nation follows a Mediterranean building code, which incorporates Neoclassical, Renaissance, Greek, Arabic, Italian and Iberian influences.

Government

Laurentia is governed by a High Council made up of members of the nobility of the nation.

Every 6 weeks, noble candidates are nominated by members of the nobility for election as Doge, who is the ceremonial head of state of Laurentia and an honorary member of the restricted High Council which deals with diplomacy and foreign affairs. All citizens of Laurentia are entitled to vote in Doge elections, which are conducted via a monetary vote whereby greater donations to the state equate to more votes for the selected candidate.

The restricted High Council is reserved for Archdukes and the Doge of the nation.

Foreign Affairs

Laurentia has amicable relations with Courron, and the two nations signed the first treaty on CivReign together.
