Ximbala officially The Ximbalan People's Republic (Latinican: La República Popular Ximbaliano) is a sovereign state in the east of Latinica.

It is bordered to the south by Whenua Wai, Ainigma, Ka’a and Kehbe; to the northwest by Kalimann; to the north by Vradiazi; and its eastern boundary is defined by the Tritonian Ocean. With a population of 70,534,638 inhabitants and a land area spanning 966,228 square kilometers, Ximbala ranks as the third-most populous and third-largest nation in Latinica. On a global scale, it stands as the 13th-most populous country and the 14th-largest in terms of land area. The official language of Ximbala is Latinican, spoken by approximately 80% of the population as their native tongue, while an additional 20% use it as a second language. In addition to Latinican, 70 other languages, many of which are indigenous to the area, are also spoken. Ximbala City serves as both the nation's capital and its largest city. It holds a prominent role as the economic, cultural, and political hub of the nation, with a combined urban population exceeding 22 million residents (including 9 million in the city proper).

Considered a cradle of civilization, the territory that constitutes contemporary Ximbala has been continuously settled since prehistoric times. The region was initially populated by migrants from Southern Serica around 13,000 years ago and would see the rise and fall of complex cultures and societies over the next millennia. Among the notable civilizations that emerged throughout Ximbala’s early history were the Olmec, Maya, Zapotec, Teotihuacan, Purepecha, and Anahuac. The latter emerged as the region’s most prominent pre-colonization entity by the 15th century, with an estimated population of 3.5 million at its zenith as the Anahuac Empire. In the early 15th century, as the nations west of Latinica entered a period of exploration, Ximbala's southeastern coast was discovered by Eldancan voyagers, setting the stage for a process of colonization. The Eldancan Empire’s forces gradually conquered the region, culminating in the establishment of the colony of New Eldance in 1521. Over the ensuing three centuries, Eldancan colonization would transform Ximbala, introducing Catholicism, welcoming waves of Eldancan settlers and cultures, and leading to widespread racial intermixing. These changes would significantly alter the sociocultural landscape of the region. By the early 19th century, a collective identity began to emerge among the colony’s citizenry, forged from elements of plurinationalism and the emergence of a common language, the nascent Latinican language. This sense of nationhood culminated in a declaration of independence from the Eldancan Empire in 1810. The ensuing Ximbalan War of Independence, which concluded in 1821, marked the end of Eldancan colonial rule.

The post-independence period in Ximbala was characterized by profound instability, frequent government changes, social unrest, and internal conflicts. Ideological divides between conservatives and liberals exacerbated governance challenges, leading to a tumultuous period. In 1870, these divisions reached a critical point when the conservative-controlled senate unilaterally passed a new constitution, despite being vetoed by the incumbent liberal presidency. This disagreement triggered a civil war, ultimately won by the liberals. Despite the initial ravages of conflict, the victorious liberal government ushered in a period known as the Ximbalan Miracle. This era was marked by political stability, rapid industrialization, modernization, and unprecedented economic growth that was sustained by successive regimes. Rising living standards, reduced infant mortality, and extensive immigration fueled a population boom, which once again radically transformed Ximbalan society; today, approximately 80% of modern-day Ximbalans claim foreign ancestry. However, the 1940s brought a severe financial crisis that led to economic collapse. In this climate, a military junta assumed control in 1945, enacting martial law and establishing a dictatorship. The regime implemented economic reforms that revitalized the economy but exacerbated social inequality, concentrating wealth in the hands of a few while leaving over 70% of the population in poverty. This social inequality, coupled with a lack of democracy and government repression, fueled peaceful peasant revolts in the early 1950s, eventually evolving into guerrilla warfare after the massacre of student demonstrators in 1956. The subsequent Ximbalan Revolution, led by a coalition of socialist organizations, trade unions, student movements, and minority groups known as the Frente Unido (United Front), sought to topple the military junta. This revolution persisted until 1962, when the military government surrendered, relinquishing power on July 5th, 1962. The parties of the Frente Unido merged to form the Communist Party of Ximbala, which established the modern-day Ximbalan People's Republic under the current constitution that has since undergone numerous revisions.

Today, Ximbala is a unitary one-party socialist state, one of the only states with a constitutionally enshrined one-party system and a commitment to communism. In this framework, the country is governed by the Communist Party of Ximbala, as dictated by its constitution. Economically, Ximbala is considered a newly industrialized country with an emerging economy. The country has experienced exponential growth in the wake of transformative reforms introduced in the 1980s, which fundamentally reshaped its once centrally planned economy into a rudimentary state-capitalist market economy, characterized as a socialist market economy. Presently, Ximbala boasts a GDP at purchasing power parity totaling $2.375 trillion and a GDP per capita of $33,671. Nonetheless, the nation grapples with pressing challenges that undermine its economic and political potential, as well as the well-being of its citizens. These include pervasive issues such as alarming drug-related crime and deeply entrenched socioeconomic disparities. Despite this, Ximbala maintains its status as an upper-middle-income country with a moderately high standard of living. The nation extends social services to its citizens, including universal healthcare, free education, and comprehensive social security, exemplifying its commitment to providing for the welfare of its citizens.
