Conworlding, also called worldbuilding, is the process of constructing an imaginary world, sometimes associated with a whole fictional universe. The resulting world may be called a constructed world or a conworld. The term "worldbuilding" was popularized at science fiction writers' workshops in the 1970s. Developing an imaginary setting with coherent qualities such as a history, geography, and ecology is a key task for many science fiction or fantasy writers. Worldbuilding often involves the creation of maps, a backstory, and people for the world. Constructed worlds can enrich the backstory and history of fictional works, and it is not uncommon for authors to revise their constructed worlds while completing its associated work. Constructed worlds can be created for personal amusement and mental exercise, or for specific creative endeavors such as novels, video games, or role-playing games. (read more)

Map of Kalșeri

Author: DatMaster001
Project: Independent
Capital: Evalria
Population: 28,773,400
Leader(s): President Maksimilianus Ureska
Summary: Kalșeri, (occasionally rendered as Kalseri or Kalsheri; /kælˈʃɛrɪ, kɔl-/, Kalhan: [kɐɫˈʃeɾɪ]), officially the State of Kalșeri (Rial Kalșeri) is an island country in North America, lying on the North Atlantic Ocean. It consists of a major island and several smaller islands, some of which inhabited. With a population of 28,773,400, Kalșeri is the 51st most populated country, between Mozambique and Madagascar.

Kalșeri is a federal presidential republic that consists of thirteen cantons. The President, who is also the head of government, is elected directly by the people every five years, and their powers include signing or vetoing bills passed by the High Council, which meets in the capital city of Evalria. The High Council is the organ through which the people request laws to be promulgated or repealed; it is headed by the High Summoner, who convenes or adjourns it and manages the day-to-day operations of the body.

Kalșeri is a member of several global organizations, such as the United Nations, the Commonwealth of Nations, NATO, OECD, WTO, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the OSCE and the OAS.

Pre-Columbian Kalșeri was inhabited by several ethnic groups, among which the Lág people, who would rule the island until the arrival of the British. Following a period of co-existence with the Spanish and the French, much of modern-day Kalșeri was made into a British province in 1669; British rule would last until 1783, when, following a war of independence, Kalșeri was established as a kingdom. The re-established monarchy lasted until 1891, when a civil war broke out and ended with the division of Kalșeri into the Kalșerian Republic and the Reformed Kingdom Lág; this division lasted until 1952, when the two countries unified and the modern Kalșerian state was established.

About the Wiki

Seal of the Constructed Worlds Wiki.svg

Originally founded on Wikia, the Constructed Worlds Wiki, affectionately known as Conworlds, is a place to host and share constructed worlds, alternate history, and other creative endeavours. Projects of any nature are welcome here, and creativity is encouraged!

On Mainspace articles we suggest that writers follow our Manual of Style. The majority of content on the Mainspace is written in an encyclopedic format like on Wikipedia. For all other kinds of pages, there are a number of namespaces anyone can use. Editors can opt in their pages to our content assessment system, vote to feature articles at the village pump, and even earn awards and decorations for their writing.

It is important to fully review and understand our policies and guidelines before editing on our Wiki. The Admins generally prefer to let people self-regulate, but it is for the sake of keeping Conworlds an inclusive and safe community that we insure compliance with these policies. Particularly of import are the protocols around copyrights.

Aside from our policies, it is also important that users understand the Four Cs: civility, collaboration, consensus, and cooperation.

Civility: Editors should treat each other with courtesy, good faith, and respect.
Collaboration: Editors should make an effort to work together on shared projects.
Consensus: Editors should participate in decision-making and seek arrangements which are suitable to all.
Cooperation: Editors should never wantonly antagonize or hinder others.

Finally, new editors or users should understand what Conworlds is not.

Attribution and Copyright Compliance Task Force.svg

The Attribution and Copyright Compliance Task Force (abbreviated ACCTF) is a Conworlds task force and project which aims to identify and resolve attribution issues involving the articles, templates, files, and categories of the Constructed Worlds Wiki. Due to the nature of the Constructed Worlds Wiki first and foremost as a worldbuilding community wiki that seeks to emulate the appearance and style of Wikipedia, many of its articles are based on or inspired by Wikipedia. Consequently, it may feature articles which may or may not properly attribute its Wikipedia sourced material. Material which has been copied, transposed, imported, or derived from Wikipedia (and elsewhere) which fail to have proper attribution may be in violation of Wikipedia's or other similar sites' copyrights. The Constructed Worlds Wiki administration takes this very seriously, as non-compliance or negligence may have legal ramifications. To that end, the ACCTF was created on 3 March 2023 to meet the demands and standards of proper attribution and copyright compliance with respect to Canadian copyright law. If you are interested in assisting the wiki with this important responsibility, please join the ACCTF today!

Patron Article of the Month – List of political parties in Kalșeri by Symposium, selected by Yuutarou

Kalșeri is a multi-party democracy, where multiple parties regularly contest in national and cantonal elections.

After achieving independence in 1783, the Kalșerian political landscape has been traditionally dominated by the Whig Party and the Liberal Republican Party.

Starting from the 1890s, the Labor Party, the Christian Democrats and the Farmers' Party have also enjoyed popularity between the nineteenth century and the first half of the twentieth century. The collapse of the Whigs is often seen as the "First Restructuring" of Kalșerian politics.

While short-lived, Ioen Rovuan's presidency played a major role in the "Second Restructuring" of Kalșerian politics, as the Labor Party absorbed several left-wing parties and became the Social Cooperation Party, and the Christian Democrats merged with the Liberal Republican Party, forming the Liberal Democratic Party. A two-party system akin to that of the United States was thus established.

The 1987 general election is seen as the "Third Restructuring" of the Kalșerian political ecosystem, bringing an end to the two-party system in place since 1959. Since then, a number of third parties, such as the National Democrats, Reformers, Kalșerians for Change and the Libertarians, have elected upwards of ten representatives to Congress.

A party must have 500 members to qualify for presidential and Congress elections. A party loses its eligibility for national elections when the number of members is less than 500 for three straight years, or upon dissolution.
