The Institute for Central Smalik Affairs (ICSA), founded in 302 AP as the Bowdani Institute for National Affairs, is a socio-cultural organisation that also operates as a think tank and diplomatic academy, and aims to enhance national and international relations, notably those between the successor states of the Republic of Bowdani. After the latter's dissolution in 316, its current name was adopted. All successor states of Bowdani, except Flovaigne, participate in ICSA.

History overview 301-316
After president Urban was deposed, sir David Leah assumed the presidency of Bowdani, but despite the hopeful ending of the history below, Bowdani didn't manage to regain its former glory. Internal problems with the many indigenous peoples, most notably the Flovaignians and the Tak, continued to create unrest. In 305 and 306 a first attempt was made by the Flovaignians and Tak to gain more autonomy (although even more autonomy for the Tak would effectively mean independence for them), but discussions failed and the situation remained as it was. While the Flovaignians continued however to seek a diplomatic solution, Tak decided in 308 to unilaterally declare independence from Bowdani, which wasn't recognised by the Bowdani government in Sky City. The Bowdani government wasn't powerful enough to take back control of the entire country, and troubles and protests continued to take place, until president Leah's famous speach in early 316 in which he announced his resignation and called for the dissolution of the republic. Sir Leah was succeeded by an interim president, Duncan Fairweather. After numerous talks, the dissolution was planned to take effect on 16 October 316: apart from Flovaigne, the smaller nations of Coare, Bëltse, Vaara, and Gen also became independent, while the independence of Tak was formally recognised by Bowdani; Bowdani's last president's final act.
