APABEOSSIE

The Your Antityrannical overlord of Apabeossie, commonly called Apabeossie, is a Republic in Southeast Aovelale. It is bordered on the north by Aulivuel, by the South by the Apab Sea, by the east by Siyania and on the west by Laefe. The Capital and Largest City is Apaci. Apabeossie has an estimated population of 47 million, most of which live in the southern half of the country and speaks Apab. Apabeossie covers AREA square kilometers comprises of 9 provinces and two special cities.

Apabeossie was first inhabited by people in 15000 BC. The people there constructed an agricultural society based on the Utoci and Apaci Rivers. The Kingdom of Apabeossie was first founded after the fall of the Kapeak Empire which comprised most of South Aovelale. It colonized outside of Aovelale since 1326 and became a dominant naval and economic power on the Namschad Ocean. However, competition and internal instability led to decolonization and revolutions, forming a republic. Apabeossie participated in the Great Aovelalean war in 1925, joined the CBU in 1947, the Aovelale-Rapera Union in 1953, the OECD in 1974.

Etymology

Apabeossie is a combination of the words Apab and Eossie, meaning "The Apab People's" and "Nation" respectively. The world "Apab" comes from Lacanian meaning "Friendly People". The name was first officially accepted in 472 during the Kingdom of Apabeossie and has referred to the nation ever since on most languages.

The standard way to refer to a citizen of Apabeossie is as an "Apab."

History

Prehistory
Apab history starts around 30000 BC when humans first moved in. Azians(not Asians) migrated in from Salis-Neste, through Siyania. Agriculture was first brought in around 7000 BC, creating villages around the Apaci and Utoci rivers.

First Kingdom of Apabeossie
The first written record of a centralized Apab state dates back to 102 BC, during king Aren II's reign. It's estimated that the state of Apabeossie was created over 2200 years ago. Apabeossie soon became a power in the region, heading upstreams and making contact with the Siyanese, Laefeans and possibly even the Agnats thousands of kilometers away. This age of Apabeossie was when numerous developments were made including areas in philosophy, technology, and society. However, internal instability led to the division of Apabeossie into North Apabeossie and South Apabeossie in 217.


north and south apabeossie

Division, reunification, and conquest of Siyania
Of the two states, South Apabeossie eventually came out on top, having a coastline after all. The two states occasionally were at war with each other, one of which South Apabeossie sacked the northern capital, Althart in 422. The drought and famine of 511, affected both nations, but the north more hardly, due to its high dependence on agriculture. The North eventually seek reunification with the south, reunifying in 540. In 696, Apabeossie invaded and conquered Siyania. Apabeossie adopted Christianity in the 7th century, with many converting to the faith. It remained stable for several centuries. A conflict with Laefe in 1006 ended in an Apab victory with Laefe ceding all land east of the Harokunsi river. However, Siyania revolted in 1207 and gained independence, thereby limiting Apabeossie's power.

Age of Exploration
Apabeossie has been trading with Perad states for several years. Apabeossie first began colonizing in the discovery of the Ribx islands in 1392. Throughout the years Apabeossie will become a dominant naval power in the Namschad sea, conquering parts of Brina, the Chena islands, Sagrepia, Woseken, Odaria,Yengzin, and even far away places like Qalacino, The saf islands, and making contact with Manghan. Apabeossie grew wealthy trading with all those people, mostly importing spices, tropical fruit, and natural resources. Apabeossie reconquered Siyania in 1523.


The Apab Empire at its height

Throughout the 17th century, there were numerous astronomical, medical, and scientific advancements, known as the golden age of Apabeossie. Apabeossie supported protestant rebels in the great coalition war, a war between regional powers fought between Catholics and protestants. Apabeossie was largely unaffected because few battles were fought around there. At its territorial height, Apabeossie controlled Siyania, the Ribx Islands, most of west Brina, a few villages across Odaria, Sagrepia, northern Aos, A, Ilovebaseball, and a few islands scattered around the Namschad Sea.

Fall of the Empire and Kingdom
The Battle of Ryanius in Ryanius became a major turning point in the empire's history. A war broke out between Manghan and Apabeossie in 1688. At the battle of Ryanius, the Manghanese navy annihilated the Apab navy, which has been seen as undefeatable for centuries. Apabeossie also lost several colonies due to this war. Although the industrial revolution started back home, Apabeossie's international power started to diminish. It lost Brina in the Brin war of independence in the battle Kiap. Laefe regained lost territory in 1772, and the rest of the colonies soon got decolonized. Siste gained independence in 1789, northern ILB in 1804, Sagrepia was lost to Mix Volcanic Empire in 1823. Despite this, Apabeossie's economy and society were in a good state. The absolute monarchy was voluntarily abolished in 1838 and Apabeossie became a democratic constitutional monarchy. The new government was stable for several years. A constitution was approved in 1841. This, however, began to change with the invention of communism, communism soon spread through Apabeossie. This began a period of political instability.

Political Turmoil
An uprising broke out in Utoci in 1856. The revolt was quickly suppressed, but there was more instability in the coming decades. Economic growth also halted and people were unhappy. In 1875, a coup led by general Sindale Karren led to the monarchy being ousted. She gained support from the hungry people who thought she will save Apabeossie from terror and slump. However, she wasn't so democratic. She installed a fascistic government. Apabeossie soon stabilized but resistance will still be. Political Freedom was taken away as Apabeossie became an autocratic nation. But it wouldn't last long(in a nation scale) and on May 21st, 1906, the lily revolution overthrew Karren and the monarchy was restored. The new queen wasn't always democratic though and on July 19th, 1917 when the queen died without an heir, a bloodless coup installed the third republic.

Great Aovelalean war and Modern Times
After the lily revolution, the new regime instituted democratic reforms. It also developed the economy and quality of life began improving drastically. Apabeossie first declared neutrality in the great Aovelalean war of 1923. It sought to support both sides and not get involved. However in 1925, Plekti launched an invasion of Ribx, which was in free association with Apabeossie. Apabeossie joined on the side of the allies, and after Plekti briefly occupied Ribx, the Apab navy defeated Plekti in the battle of Library. Plekti was defeated on October 22, 1928.

Post-War and modern period
Apabeossie began rebuilding with aid from Megia. Apabeossie experienced stable economic growth, better education and living standards, an increase in trade, and the civil rights declaration was adopted. Apabeossie joined the Aovelale-Rapera Union in 1956 as a founding member. Immigration increased as Apabeossie became one of Aovelale's happiest and richest countries. Apabeossie also became a leading technological powerhouse, the 2nd most eco-friendly nation in Noblia. It was ranked as one of the world's top 5 happiest countries in 1998, 2002, 2003, 2006, 2007, 2010, and 2017.

Physical Geography and Climate
Apabeossie is located in southeastern Aovelale on the western parts of the Perad Plain, which stretches from Wayovi to Laefe. Apabeossie also has sovereignty over the Katyns, an archipelago off the coast. Apabeossie lies roughly between latitudes 38 N and 44 N, and longitudes 60 E and 63 E. Apabeossie is mostly split into 3 main geographic regions; the flat south which is home to most of the population, the slightly hillier and colder north, and the mountainous northwest. Its highest peak is mount Neval, located the Lohit Algris province in the northwestern mountains. It is the starting point of the Karly river, a major contributor to the Utoci river.
Apabeossie has three major rivers: the Apaci, Utoci, and the Ziva rivers, the last which makes up most of the border with Siyania. All three start in the northern mountains and flow out to the Apab sea. These rivers provide transport, water, and is the backbone of the Apab economy and culture.
The Apab Exclusive Economic Zone extends far south in some areas thanks to the Katyn islands. This has given rise to a dispute with Siyania, and Apabeossie voluntarily gave Siyanese fishers rights in 50 nautical miles of waters south and east to the Katyns, ending the dispute.
