The Revolutionary Moorish Republic of Bético is based on Islamic Spain. The moriscosare exiled Muslims from the Reconquista who went on to recreate their emirate in a different land, called Bético after the Roman province of Bætica.
That's cool. Sounds like you have some interesting ideas you should write it in your factbook. I really liked the Andalusian civilisation and would love to read what you come up with. Where exactly on the map was baetica?
Don't answer that I found it :)
Stand prepared to greet our newest members as they arrive. : )
ok. I will do that.
Bætica was basically the western half of Andalucia, and its administrative capital was Córdoba. Pretty good representation of Al-Andalus. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/d/d9/Hispania_10AD_En.jpg/300px-Hispania_10AD_En.jpg
I'm still fleshing out the history of Bético, but this is what I have so far: history diverges in 1568 with the rebellion of Mahoma Abén Humeya (Muhammad ibn Umayyah). Rather than leading a rebellion against the Crown of Castilla, he instead leads the Iberian cryptomuslims on a colonizing expedition. They come across a land (not sure where yet) and found the Califato Morisco. Eventually the Caliphate becomes a Sultanate, and the seat of power moves to Ciudad Bética. The monarchy lasts in some form or another until the late 1920s or early 1930s, when there is an abortive socialist revolution. Eventually a general named Álvaro Abén Fátima (Al-Baru ibn Fatimah) declares himself Caudillo, or supreme leader, of the República Revolucionaria Morisca. The "Dictablanda" (a Spanish pun meaning "soft dictatorship") lasts until the 1950s, and Bético becomes something of a standard social democracy, albeit with a few "revolutionary socialist" trappings.
In the cities, there is a high degree of faith in the government, and a general feeling of civic patriotism. However, in the countryside there is very strong influence from Organización Abén Humeya, a secessionist movement with both secular anarchist and reactionary Islamist elements united under agrarian socialism. Industry has traditionally been under state "ownership" but worker control. This changes around 2008/2009, with an economic crisis causing the government to seize and sell off the collectives. This, combined with a renewed crackdown on religious radicalism and an attempted secularization campaign, sparks a united opposition front in the cities similar to the rural OAH. Así empieza el conflicto.
Salutations, Westerly Winds! Welcome to our region.
I'm speaking from my parents' house in northern Hasnuni. Why? Because it's Eid!
