The Abbasid Caliphate was a constitutional monarchy that existed for a month. Its capital was Basra. It was ruled by Caliph Aero, with support from Alezeem Piccolo, and Governor Bravo, who would later take soverignity of the Caliphate and form Anetalia The Caliphate was a member of the United Nations, and hosted the General Assembly of the United Nations.
On 12 April 2015, a meeting was held, and Bravo was given leadership of the Caliphate. It was rechristened "Anetalia", and the time of the Caliphate came to a close.
Symbols EditThe nation had an official flag. It is the green-colored symbol of Islam, with a torch signifying life, liberty, and justice, with a green backdrop.
It was created by Flyingaero119 and TheCarlagas in the Arabian Peninsula, on the eastern part of real-life Iraq.

Expansion Policies EditOn the map provided to the right, you can see that the dark-green area is where the Caliphate oince laid claims to, and was considered their "homeland". If new cities were to be founded, the Advisory Council, in Basra, had deemed the areas in light green suitable areas for expansion/colonization. Yellow-colored areas may be favorable, but the Caliph had more right to deny this due to distance from capital, or topographic reasons. Orange-colored areas signified places the Caliphate didn't want you to settle, and, except under special circumstances, one would not end up settling there. The color red is closed to Caliphate expansion, and the Advisory Council really did not want settlers asking for any of that land, and would not have issue charters to people seeking said land.
The Constitution Edit
The Abbasid Caliphate has a constitution, as you may have read above, and it was primarily a set of rules the Council and Caliph had to follow, which also doubled as a rulebook. Some topics covered in it include, but are not limited to, the rights of the citizens, the terms of exile, wartime and military practices, colonization, and the list goes on. There were ideas Aero had to amend the Constitution, but were scrapped after the transition of power. The Constitution, only applying to the Abbasid Caliphate, has not been referenced under the sovereignty of Anetalian government.
