History


Genovia was founded on January 13th, 1704 when France agreed to a treaty to allow the province of Genovia to be set free. The small province, then of 70,000 people, is about the size of Kanawha County, West Virginia. In 1704, when the Constitution of the Nation was written, the nation intended to move forward with the Monarchy. The Monarchy is what led to the treaty. It was agreed that the Monarch should be able to rule his own nation, therefore, a treaty was set forth. King Andrew Lendothal I was the first King of Genovia. In 1732, King Andrew I passed away and left the throne to his wife, Queen Emily. Queen Emily died in 1740. Their son, Prince Andrew II became king. Andrew and his wife Carla ruled until 1764, when they were assassinated during an on-going war between several European Tribes. Their daughter, Princess Elana became Queen. Elana ruled until 1802 when she died. Elana's death brought an end to the Lendothal Rule. Taking over was the Tokein house. Carl Tokein became king. Tokein was 80 at the time and died in 1808. His son Greg came to power. Greg ruled until 1840. In 1840 he died and his son Jimmy came to power. Jimmy ruled until 1842 when he died of a heart attack. The Tokein house quickly ended. Amy Rhoades came to the throne bringing the Rhoades to a power they would hold to this day. Amy Rhoades was only 28 upon the taking of the throne. In 1905, Rhoades passed away and her husband John Rhoades ruled until his death in 1910. Their grandson was next in line following the unexpected death of their son. Their grandson, Alexander I would hold the throne until 1970 upon his death. It was during his reign that in 1950, the Monarchy lost actual power and became ceremonial with slight power. His Daughter Ann came to the throne but died in 1990. Her daughter, Clarice came to the throne and remains there today.

House of Lendothal

The House of Lendothal ruled Genovia from 1704 to 1802. For 98 years, the family brought changes to Genovia. The family brought the highest taxes on the poor. The average tax under their rule was 88%. Rich paid a 2% tax. The legislature was abolished under Andrew II. Elana ordered the beheading of more than 2,000 people that opposed her rule.

House of Tokein

The Tokeins only ruled 1802 to 1840. The short hold of rule led to little production. In fact, none at all.

House of Rhoades

The house of Rhodes has ruled since 1840. It is currently the longest serving house. Amy Rhoades was the first to bring the family to the throne. Queen Amy was considered the best queen at the time. Now only behind Clarice. Amy immediately switched taxes to 25% for all people. In 1900, shortly before her death, she brought back the Parliment. In 1905, when she died, her husband John ruled. In 1910, Alexander I came to power. In 1950, he ordered a change in Government. Alexander wanted to reduce the power of the monarchy to hold the nation in balance. In 1950, he established the 1950 Constitution which established a bicameral Parliment and a Presidential office. In 1970 he died. In 1990, Ann died and Clarice came to rule. Clarice has been ruling since 1990. Her rein has included the best economic times in the nation's history.

Culture


Genovia has a very rich culture. As a result of its history and geographical position, its culture contains much French influence, but ever since its official independence, it has been busy at work to create a national culture that is independent and different from France. So far, Genovia has made great progress towards this goal.

Society

The family is one of the greatest pillars of Genovian society. Families regularly attend Sunday Roman Catholic masses, and there are very few divorces, runaways, or extramarital affairs.

Cuisine

The cuisine of Genovia, since the nation's independence, has developed into an amazingly unique Western European style, which at times even rivals the cuisine of its nearby neighbours. Genovian cuisine is undoubtedly ranked as some of the best in the world.

Holidays

On Genovia's independence day, it is traditional for public feasts to be held throughout the country, in places like plazas, courtyards, fields, homes, and gardens.

Relgion

Roman Catholicism is Genovia's official religion (93%), but the right to practice any religion, without infringement, is enshrined in the nation's constitution. The second largest religious group is the Jewish faith. During World War II, Jews escaping the Holocaust used Genovia as a secret safe haven, and were kept hidden from enemies by the predominantly Roman Catholic Genovian people. At the end of the war most of the Jews emigrated to places like the United States or Israel, however, a few small Jewish families made Genovia their home. There are currently three Hebrew members of parliament.

Forever
Will your banner wave!
