Kingdom of Santegia-Haria
The Kingdom of Santegia-Haria, more colloquially referred to as 'Santegia' (Savinian: Santugia eta Haria Erreinua; Santegian: Reino de Santegia y Haria; Qalasheen: Mamlakat Haria wa'Shaytimakan; Flexio: Regnum Santum et Haria), is the personal union between the Kingdom of Santegia and the Sultanate of Haria. It is located on the Timberwoods river on the Isles of Atlas, bordering the Kingdom of Norland to the north. The fertile land around the Timberwoods river is characterised by vast swathes of farmland, used to provide for the populace of the nation.
The personal union between Santegia and Haria emerged once the Queen of Santegia, Soraya Kharadeen was named heir of the Sultanate of Haria with her father's abdication - as the eldest child of Sultan Fakhri Kharadeen.  As a result, it commenced a personal union between the two nations on the 13th of the Sun's Smile, 1639.  The current reigning monarch of the Kingdom of Santegia is Leoiarizaltzu de Savin, crowned on the 8th of the Grand Harvest, 1629. The current reigning monarch of the Sultanate of Haria is Soraya Kharadeen, crowned on the 20th of the Sun's Smile, 1639.
The Kingdom of Santegia and the Sultanate of Haria enjoyed intimate but neutral relations for forty years prior to the union, through the Duchy of Savinia. The ruling House de Savin of Santegia were a heartlandic people nurtured in Qalasheen and farfolk culture. This quasi-Qalasheen culture developed and refined itself to become the distinctive Savinian culture, which would later contribute itself to the amalgamation of cultures found in Santegia.
Following the great exodus from Axios to Atlas, the Santegian-Harian people settled themselves on the Timberwoods delta. Over decades, this settlement would transform into the capital, Presa de Madera. During the early years of Atlas, Santegia-Haria joined Norland in attacking Curon. This lead to a small scale conflict between several nations, which Santegia-Haria ended up getting the worse end up, losing skirmishes more often than it won them. It lated ended up joining a coalition with the Principality of Curon and Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska. This caused many of its people to leave the city, having long had problems with both these nations. Despite the formation of this coalition against Crown of Renatus-Marna, they often lost to this power, causing the coalition to slowly collapse. With people leaving its nation, Santegia-Haria left in a vulnerable position. This position was ultimately exploited by Renatus-Marna, who offered King Leo de Savin the chance to surrender his nation peacefully. The King took the offer, and handed Santegia-Haria over to a Horen, who transformed it into the Kingdom of Santegia.
The Kingdom of Santegia-Haria is located in the southeast of Atlas. It is situated on the coast and has it's capital build on and around the Timberwood riverdelta. The Kingdom's capital, Presa de Madera, is also named after said river as it's name means 'Dam of the Timber' in Santegian. Outside the nation's capital lay some fields that are used for farming. Further upstreams lays the Principality of Curon and following the coast to the north one will come across the Kingdom of Norland. To the south of Santegia-Haria lays nothing, leading to the nation having unofficially claimed said area to have it under control for protection and possible future use.
