First inhabited in the !paleolithic era, Miscatie was inhabited by the Miscish tribal groups during the Iron Age.

It secured its freedom in 642 through the founding of the Coumard Kingdom by Gisbald I.

Miscatie is derived from the Arlesian name for the Miscish tribes inhabiting the lands where it currently exists. Referred to as Miscatia from as early as 440 BCE, the name was used as the Arlesian administrative name for the territories in this region. The name was replaced in the establishment of the Coumard kingdom, which utilized the Miscish-derived name of Coumard for the region. This was a practice utilized until Richard I of the Ducois dynasty re-established the utilization of the Arlesian-derived name in 1140.

Main article: Government of Miscatie
Miscatie is a unitary semi-consular constitutional monarchy, one of the first of such governments established in continental Edavia. Guidance and framework for the government is established in the Constituting Article of the Miscatean Union, which was last modified in 1973. The Constitution is widely regarded as a framework article for representative democracies worldwide. The Monarch acts as the head of state, and is entitled some limited authority within the framework of the constitution, however in practice their role is mostly ceremonial and advisory.
Executive power is vested in the Consulate, who is elected by universal adult suffrage and must win a majority of votes in a two-round election at least once to verify the candidate is supported by close to half of the population. The Consul appoints a Prime Minister, who will then appoint other ministers of the executive, including the Executive Cabinet of the Consul, to carry out duties belonging to the executive. The President acts as commander in chief of the armed forces.
The legislature, known as the Miscatean Parliament (Parliament Miscatois), is bicameral; consisting of the House of Peers and the National Assembly. The power of the Peers has been curtailed regularly by the National Assembly, however; it maintains precedence on some matters, particularly constitutional amendments and impeachment trials. The National Assembly is directly elected in a two-round election to represent constituencies of roughly 100,000 people, while the House of Peers is selected indirectly by a group of nationwide electors. The House of Peers primarily serves to scrutinize legislature passed by the Assembly and to preside over major internal governmental actions.
Judiciary and law enforcement
Miscatie's judicial systems derive from Arlesian laws and follows a civil legal system. The basic tenets of Miscatian law were formally codified under Achillean Code, which forms the basis of many modern western legal systems- the code itself derives from statues of royal law established over centuries prior. Famed jurist Grégoire Lachapelle, the first Chief Arbiter of the Supreme Court, wrote that laws "should be made to serve the common interest wholly, to the extent it begins to detract from the common man's interests severely." That is, laws should serve to protect the interests both of the general population and the rights of the individual without infringing upon either too egregiously.
Miscatiean law is subdivided into civil, or common laws (loi commune) and public laws (loi publique). Courts are organized at the regional and departmental levels. Miscatie has three courts of last resort with differing jurisdiction- the Court of Cassation with jurisdiction over civil and criminal matters, the Supreme Constitutional Court with review of constitutional cases, and the State Council with overview of administrative cases.
Miscatie has a strong tradition of secularism in government following the days of the Miscatian Republic's rampant secularization of the entirety of the social apparatus. Monarchs of the House Roumarin have adopted deist belief systems since their installment and have rooted much of the religious traditions out from royal affairs. Miscatie does not accept religious canon laws as valid legal statutes. Miscatie has not recognized laws for blasphemism and laws for sodomy since the late 1700s, however, many laws which found origin in religious bylaws have found places in public law, including public indecency and disturbance of public order statutes. Miscatie has allowed for freedom of religion and religious expression since the Republic, but constitutionally requires that religious laws are subordinate to national laws and requirements. This has resulted in some controversies, most notably the 2006 ban on !Islamic veil wearing in public.
Miscatie is organed into TBD number of subdivisions known as Regions, which consist of ## regions in metropolitan or continental Miscatie, and ## overseas regions. These are further divided into departments, who in turn are divided into arrondisments, communes, and cantons, which serve varying administrative and legal purposes.
