The Federation of Hindustan (Hindi: हिन्दुस्तानी संघ Hindustani Sangh), also known as India or Hindustan (Hindi: हिन्दुस्तान Hindustan), is a sovereign nation in the northwestern region of the Indian Subcontinent. It is bordered by Nepal and Tibet to the northeast, British India to the east, Dravidadesa and the Indian Ocean to the south, and Persia and Afghanistan to the

Before the Great War, the entire region was either in complete British hands or was one of the autonomous 'princely states' ruled by a king with a native title but only recognised as a 'prince' by the British. In 1885, the Indian National Congress (the ruling party) was founded by Allan Octavian Hume, Dadabhai Naoroji, and Dinshaw Edulji Wacha. Their goal was for an independent, secular and democratic India.

The British found a firm friend in Hindu nationalist and Muslim groups that supported them.

Recent History

Shortly before the British loss in the Great War, the Lucknow Pact between the Congress Party and the Muslim League was declared, and an alliance between the two parties formed. After the war was lost, India was carved up by various nations. The Justice Party was given the right to rule over the Madras Presidency and the British retained areas near Bengal.

The princes protested on Delhi's takeover of the entire region and demanded that their kingdoms be granted sovereignty. This succeeded in Hyderabad, Mysore,Kalat, and Kashmir, but the other states were merged in by force into the nation.

Subdivisions

The nation is divided into several republics, with its system being modeled after that of the Arab Federation. The republics are self-governing but eventually report to the central government. Each republic represents an amount of seats in the Legislative Assembly.

There are seven republics.-
