The Achysian Republic (officially in Achysian Elyrian: Akȳse Napekyira), commonly known as the Second Achysian Republic, to distinguish it from the First Republic, was the the democratic republican administration that existed in Achysia from 1536 to 1545. Its origins lie in the military coup against the Autocratic regime and the Transitional Government, the provisional military junta that led the country in the last years of the Second Great War. As part of the treaties that ended the conflict, a highly contested referendum was held, which ended with the adoption of a republican form of government. The young republic was however highly unstable, with no political party being able to gain a majority in the new Courts of the Republic, and with the new regime having to deal with the aftermath of both the Great War and the War of Transition. As a response to that, the various left-wing republican alliances in the Courts attempted to pass a staggering number of reforms, that alientated the conservative forces in the country. Following even more instability and several dissolvations of the Courts, a great coalition of progressive parties led by elected President Iohyros Markana won the 1543 Elections. Despite an initial recovery, political arguments about changes to the Constitution led to the end of this coalition, and the death of the aging President Markana left the republican forces without a leading figure. The constant instability had however already greatly erroded popular support for the republic, and as the acting president dissolved the Courts, the republican forces lost the 1545 Elections to a right-wing coalition led by the National Restoration League. With a parliamentary majority, the new government organized a new refendum, where the monarchical option won, leading to the restoration of the Monarchy on the 16th of Highbloom 1545.
