Around 60,000 years ago was when the first Proto-Tavastian people most likely settled along the southern coast of Obets, however this date could be as early 120,000 kya or as late as 30,000 kya. The Tavastian ethnic group, which became dominant throughout the entirety of modern-day Obets, diverged roughly around this time. As few as 40 or as many as 150 different tribes, which often operated in small, clustered populations, could have emerged and established themselves throughout the first 58,000 years of eObet human history. Since ancient tribes in Obets never had a writing system, most historical knowledge before the 16th century is based on minimal archaeological data discovered in small tribes cities or towns. Tribes in prehistoric Obets were hunter gatherers due to the mountainous and infertile nature of eObet geography, which also offered plenty of resources. As this ethnically, culturally, and politically diverse pocket of the world was soon discovered, many outside colonial powers saw the region as weak and ripe for exploitation. Chief Ŕstis of Obets saw this weakness in Obets, and executed a campaign across southwestern Obets in 1599 to unify all tribes. Eventually, the eObet empire expanded to encompass the southern and western coast of Obets, going inland to the modern-day cities of Rovaniemi. Under a unified government, eObet explorers venture into islands across the Palena Ocean to trade. However, unity would not last long as a series of bloody civil wars took place from the 1650s to the 1690s, which eventually resulted in a fractured Obets yet again. In 1850, the knight Filip of Rovaniemi, living in the dwindling eObet Empire, sought to reunify the tribes after learning of a looming Lettonian presence. Filip of Rovaniemi would overwhelm, individual tribes, one by one, until all tribes surrendered to the Second eObet Empire, with the borders seen today. Despite Rovaniemi's reunification efforts, the Lettonian Empire invaded Obets twelve years after the first parliamentary election, and a swift conquest against no established army pursued...
