The Union of Sapientian States was a union of states created by the republic of Tzedeck and was supposedly created as a democratic union. Despite this, no elections were held for the position of world assembly delegate and when the 1st senator of Ilmarene asked for elections, they were refused. Intent on rectifying these contradictions, the 1st senator allied themselves with states such as Free Seppris Shaire and Havil to overthrow Tzedeck and institute free elections.
However, Adaslandia a state supposedly also fighting for democracy was controlled by a shadow government which used a 'rebel' faction to convince Tzedeck to end democracy in the union. Tzedeck and their autocratic ally Siasa ended the free elections, censored any mention of them and banished Ilmarene from the union.
