Etymology

Pilarcraft, or in Pilartic Pilarkraft, means "Flight of the Eagle". The Name was first put on the nation about three hundred years before the Grov Empire was formed, but wasn't legally used as the name until Aldur Grov united the Nine Provinces into a singular Empire and named it Pilarcraft (originally, he wanted to name it "Kerliggrov" but he was overruled after he named two cities after himself)



History
Check here for an overview on the Classic Age of Confederal Alliance History,
or here for an Overview on the Modern Age of Confederal Alliance history.

The Confederal Alliance was originally founded after a violent civil war that ended with The Red Battle on 7 of First Seed, 1259. The Grande Assembly drafted a short and brief Constitution that made the Six States of Volɒrfolen, Patermut, Ulya Sten, Resedayen, Reptieren and Syroden into a Confederacy with a Floating City as its capital. Over the course of the Early Era, The alliance slowly annexed and conquered other regions not yet part of it, and consolidated itself as the sole power in Pilarcraft. in the Golden Era, after a long-term Scheme by Pelicus Orsavo, Pilarcraft fell into a civil war that ended with him as the Emperor with his Neo-Imperial Party the single party ruling Pilarcraft.
The Next Era, almost three hundred years long, was a long era of oppression that ended with a massive, bloody and death-filled Civil War that brought the Empire Down and reestablished the Alliance again.
The Modern Era, or the time of the New Alliance (now more libertarian and centrist in approach) started with the Pilartic Renaissance, when the Newly reestablished Alliance inherited the destroyed Pilarcraft and begun rebuilding it.

on 9 March 2018, Former Emperor Pelicus Orsavo, after about two hundreds of years after the Neo-Imperial Regime, couped and took control of the Land-provinces of the Confederal Alliance, declaring a new Empire. Four days later, a Battle began to take back control of the City and bring down the Young Empire. on 16th of March, Pelicus Orsavo's empire fell, with him and most of his Inner Party fleeing to Folknoren. a New Confederal Alliance was, once again, formed.

Check here for the Laws of Pilarcraft, and here for the Political Parties

While Each state is allowed to govern itself according to its State Constitution, The Federal Union of these Eleven States (as it was originally a Confederation, it was named Confederal Alliance, when it turned into a Federation, the government did not change it.) is a body of Legislators, Executives, and Judiciaries named Ambassadors, that are elected Democratically from every faction, state, union, corporation and Organization.
These 1800 Ambassadors Gather in a Floating City named Bopindar, the capital of Dalaran Region, to discuss Larger Scale Politics, making legislation and Alliance Rules, as well as Judging any criminal of a status high enough that Local Judiciaries are out of their Jurisdiction to Judge.

Military
The Confederal Alliance prides itself on its military. While, as per the Common Code, Military Action isn't justified unless as a counter attack, or against a rogue person Breaking The First Right, the Pilartic Military is not something to be trifled with.
The Confederal Alliance Armed Forces have three Uniform Branches: Peacekeepers, The Unitary Navy, and The Interplanetary Navy, and the Nation's Militia Parties, allied in a Coalition, while not uniform, are unofficially recognized as part of the C.A.A.F.

Culture

Higher Education
Ever Since the foundation of the Confederal Alliance, Higher Education has been something of a high demand. while not quite appreciative of the new universities that started rising slowly, soon enough, High Education became something of a high demand. because of this, The Alliance has a number of Colleges, Schools, Universities and Institutes.
Check Here for Higher Education in Pilarcraft.

Anti-Authoritarianism
Pilartics have always had a hatred for Authority. Since the original Confederal Alliance was founded, it was built on values such as Liberty, Equality, and Freedom. Add that to the fact that Two of the Eleven States in Pilarcraft are outright Anarchic, at least three cities in the nation, apart from those, have declared themselves anarchic, and two of the Eleven National Parties are also anarchic, and you can easily realize that Pilartics have for long hated Authority.
This Hatred only increased after the Neo-Imperial Regime was implemented, and by the time the New Alliance had been founded, claiming Authority on a fellow citizen can be a great cultural offense.

Another output of this hatred of authority is the Pilartic obsession over flight, floating, and landlessness. Bopindar's popularity as the Capital City of Pilarcraft only encouraged Pilartics to invest in Airships, or even floating Houses. The Biggest Example for that would be Coven, a colony of Floating Houses that started as a settlement of former slaves.

Gun Culture
As a common rule, Pilartics are obsessed with weapons. Even before the Alliance, many people were armed, the poorest only with small daggers. after the Establishment of the Alliance, this only grew. Small Firearms, Energy Weapons, Swords, and Air Rifles are the most popular weapons. Pilartics are reluctant to give up arms or to appear anywhere completely unarmed.
In the days before the Neo-Imperial Regime, this obsession was not this widespread, but after the tyrannical governing of the Orsavian Dynasty and the necessity of Arms in the revolution that overthrew it, the people were driven towards Gun ownership so hard that the average middle-class household has an Armory in their house's basement.

Common Good
Even though relatively individual-oriented, There are a few traits of public matter that many pilartics share.
One is their irreverence to Religion. a few Native Reptierenns, Nords, Bosmer and Khajiit aside, the majoirty of Pilartics have, through the course of events, stopped caring about religion.
of course, many are in fact, personally religious. The Church of Divines, The Sect of Others, The Hist, and traditional Dunmeri Ancestor worship being the most popular of these religions. however, The Neo-Imperial Regime's tendency to belittle religion and to even denounce religious rights, while not intentionally, made talking about religion in public a form of social taboo. Unlike Before the Alliance, the government is totally and completely Secular, and has been so for eras.

Another relic of the Neo-Imperial Era is the sense of Love for working. The Average Pilartic is a workaholic. many of them work more than one shift even though not in need. that said, the Pilartic hatred for authority has made them quick to go on Strikes when they fell an Employer is unjust towards them.

Common Addictions
A particular trait is the Average Pilartic's addiction to Holos and The Warp. many pilartics spend most of their day on their Holos and the Warp.

Anti-Abrahamic Sentiment
Ever Since the Revelation, and the familiarization of Pilarcraft with the various Abrahamic Religions on Earth, a great many of Pilartics have started to see it as an absurd affront to Pilarcraft. calling those with any Abrahamic Religion (Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Baha'i Faith, Mormonism, etc. etc.) Dɒmpessen (which, in Pilartic, means Dumb Pest) the majority of Pilartics have come to the common agreement that you can't be both moral and a Dɒmpessen, and for the first time in three eras, there are movements to ban Abrahamic Religions and Faiths, burn down their places of Worship and force them to evict Pilarcraft. this movement has no, yet, had any success, considering the Abrahamic Congregation is one of the fifteen Pilartic Parties (albeit the least popular)
