Etymology

The name "Ceyesca" really has no clear origin, but it is theorised that it comes from the French "Pays des Casques" or "Land of the Helmets", this makes sense because the Ancient Cesque people were amazing military men and had distinct helmets, thus being called the Casque people. The Latin people called them the Casquii, which has no clear translation to anything. This is known because a map of the Roman Empire circa. 500 b.c.e shows the land that is modern day Provence, Occitanie, Liguria, Savoy, and Piedmont were put under the name of "Patria Casquii" or "Land of the Casques". The Casques weren't the only people living there at the time, other groups included the Ligures and the Lombards. The term "Patria Casquii" was used mostly as an umbrella term for the region. "Casquii" (pronounced "Tchaski") later became "Casques" in French, "Xasca" in Catalan, "Cesquia" in Spanish, "Ciasque" in Italian, and "Caçca" in Portuguese. The Old Cesque term for Ceyesca was "Xasquilla" (circa. 735 c.e.), which later evolved to "Céllésca".

The standard way to refer to someone from Ceyesca is "Cesque". However in English, up until the beginning of the 19th Century, they were called "Cessian". This has been discarded and used only by older generations as it is an archaic term, it has been swapped with "Cesque" which comes from the French demonym of a citizen of Ceyesca.

History

Little is known about Ceyesca during Antiquity, all that is known is that they were known as the "Casquii" and that they were great military men. Around 500 b.c.e, their "lands" extended from the Pyrenees to the Alps. They were conquered by the Romans, and thus Latinised. The period of time between 500 b.c.e and 450 c.e., when Ceyesca was under Roman Rule, was the period of time when Old Cesque started developing from Vulgar Latin and got influenced from other emerging Romance Languages at the time, this period was known as "The Cesque Linguistic Enlightenment", because without it, the language wouldn't have existed. In 450 c.e., Ceyesca, or "Patria Casquii", was invaded by Germanic Tribes, squabbled over by many people groups, eventually becoming part of the Frankish Kingdom, being conquered between 736 and 814 c.e. In 843 c.e., most of modern Ceyesca became part of Middle Francia, until 855. From 855 c.e. to 1268, Ceyesca was divided between two constituent kingdoms of the Holy Roman Empire: The Kingdom of Arles and the Kingdom of Italy. On June 23rd 1268, Ceyesca officially got its independence from the Holy Roman Empire, and established the Kingdom of Cheyescia, "Lés Rénhom di Chéllésquilla" in Middle Cesque. The House of Savoy ruled Ceyesca on and off from 1266 to 1345, and again from 1372 to 1429. Between that 27 year gap, the French House of La Fayette ruled Ceyesca, unsuccessfully. The La Fayette Rule resulted in a civil war which ended with the overthrown and execution of the last Lafayettien king, William III, in 1372. The Cesque people then re established the Savoyard Monarchy. However, the Savoyard Dynasty came to an end with the death of William V, with no heir and no descendants, the only way to not get into a Succession Crisis is by appointing a distant relative of the William III La Fayette, Edward of Capet. In the period of time known as the "Cesque Golden Age", Ceyesca expanded beyond its small enclosure and conquered lands such as Burgundy, Occitania, Auvergne, Venice, Emilia-Romagna, and Tuscany. Ceyesca then went under the name of "The Cesque Empire" or "Llés Émpir Césque". The Cesque Branch of the Capetian Dynasty ruled for a short 56 years, but they were magnificent. The economy flourished, and Ceyesca established a reputation of being a military power in Europe. However, all good things come to an end, and the House of Capet did too. In 1485, the House of Auvergne came to rule, they held onto power and controlled the lands of Ceyesca in a rather dictatorial manner. This led to the lands conquered by the Capetians to either gain independence or return to their old leaders under the rule of Philippe I, sometimes called Philippe the Arrogant, he ruled from 1499 to 1502, and was the last Auvergnat king. During the Auvergnat Rule, Ceyesca became known as "The Cesque Union of Piedmont, Savoy, and Lombardy" or "Llés Unillon Césque di Pillémonté, Savolla, ét Lombardi" as it is still known to this day.

After that, the House of Vicenza ruled, they were natives of Vicenza, a city in the formerly Cesque-owned Republic of Venice. The House ingrained itself into Cesque society and gained favour with the people, thus after the death of Philippe, they put Edoardo di Vicenza on the throne, later Cesqicised to Éduard III, and Anglicised to Edward III. He reigned from 1502 to 1523 and oversaw the establishment of the first Cesque colonies in Africa and the Americas. Due to the House of Vicenza being of Venetian origin, the Venetian language influenced Cesque a lot, and so did Middle French. This resulted in the development of Modern Cesque. During the Vicentini rule, Ceyesca established colonies until the wake of decolonisation in the 20th century, it had a Civil War from 1625 to 1662. During this Civil War, millions of Cesque people died, but the monarchy was also abolished, and a republic was established. Six presidents, 7 terms, and 2 million deaths later, the War officially ended with the restoration of the monarchy by George Falu, the last President, who wished to end the war and reestablish the monarchy. Ceyesca officially became a consitutional monarchy in January 1663, after the Consitutional Act of 1663 was passed in Milan. During this time period, the then "Ducal" Family intermarried a lot with other royals, and after Philippe II married Leonora Christina of Denmark, a large influx of Danish immigrants came to Ceyesca in an event called the "Great Danish Emigration" which lasted from 1663 to 1701, a total of 3 million Danes immigrated to Ceyesca, the aftermath can still be seen today as there is a minority of about ~1.25 million Danes in Ceyesca today. The French Revolution slightly poured over to Ceyesca but for the most part the Kingdom was unaffected, Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette were invited to seek asylum in Ceyesca but they were caught on the way to Marseille. In 1803, the Napoleonic Wars started in Europe, and in 1805 Ceyesca was overrun by Napoleon's army until it became a client state of the Empire. The regions under Cesque "rule" were Marseille, Nice, Monaco, Toulon, and the exclave of Milan. Ceyesca was left at less than 20% of its former size which had extended all the way up to the Alps. However, Ceyesca was liberated in 1810 by the 7th coalition, effectively joining them, and got its land back. Princess Alexandra ascended the throne in 1834 after the death of her father, John I, and married George V of Hanover in 1845. This lead to the personal union of Hanover and Ceyesca in 1851, forming the United Kingdom of Ceyesca and Hanover, however, it ended in 1866 due to the German Unification. In 1870, during the wake of the Franco-Prussian Wars, the then medium sized country of Ceyesca decided to help Prussia against the French, but with one condition: to annex the southern half of France. Prussia won the war, and Ceyesca got the land. Two years prior, because Spain was going through the "Glorious Revolution", Ceyesca also gained land there. This is because after Isabella's expulsion, a Cesque Prince, Amadeo of Savoy, became King, and gave Ceyesca three Spanish Provinces.

The Berlin Conference of 1884-85

At the Berlin Conference of 1884-85, Ceyesca got official permission to administer its colonies. Queen Alexandra sent her Minister of Foreign Affairs, Marcus di Boscu, to sign the Berlin Act. Subsequently, Ceyesca was one of the most powerful empires at the time, so they got a lot of land. These territories include:

*in italics are the naturalised members of the Cesque Union, the others are simply members that can succeed without consequences due to major differences in culture, ethnicity, etc.

Ceyesca also advanced, modernised, and industrialised as the 19th and 20th Centuries came along, but then World War I rolled around, Ceyesca joined the Central Powers under the rule of King William VII. Due to losing the First World War, the Cesque Empire was on the brink of collapse, so a referendum was held: each Province and Free City had the choice to succeed, integrate, or remain, this lead to Ceyesca losing a lot of land (with the exception of Malta and Rhodes who revolted and decided to join Vdara). The following are the lands that left the Cesque Empire:

Angoûleme: integrated with the French Republic, 1918

Emilia-Romagna: integrated with the Kingdom of Italy, 1918

Aquitaine: integrated with the French Republic, 1918

Dubrovnik-Ragusa: integrated with the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes, 1918

Corinth: integrated with the Kingdom of Greece, 1918

After William VII's death in 1934, his son, then Crown Prince Charles, ascended the throne as Charles V. He married Anastasia Romanov, a niece of Tsar Nicholas II, and daughter of the Grand Duchess Tatiana Alexandrovna, who was in turn the daughter of the Danish Maria Feodorovna, she survived the Russian Revolution by living in the Cesque Court in 1916. The Royal Couple had 8 children: Prince Mario (1925-1945), Princess Anna (1931-1962), Princess Maria (b. 1935), Princess Caroline (b. 1943), Prince Férran (b.1946), Princess Aléssandra (b. 1947), and Prince Giulianno (b. 1950), five of them are still alive today, and Princess Caroline is currently Queen Caroline II. After Charles V had been reigning for a while longer than 5 years, World War II broke out, and his oldest son, Prince Mario, joined the Army in 1943, aged 18. He was killed by the Nazis in 1945. Ceyesca had stayed neutral for the most part, until October 29th, 1943, three weeks after the birth of Princess Caroline. The Italians invaded from the east and annexed Lombardy and Venice, with the exception of Milan as the administrative capital of the Cesque Puppet State. The Nazis invaded from the west through Vichy France, with Vichy backed forces. The Royal Family was relocated to Bonifacio, South Corsica where they lived until the Liberation of Ceyesca in 1945.

Flag of German-Occupied Ceyesca

During the Nazi Occupation, only about 2,000 of the 5,000 Jews were captured and murdered, mostly because they had been evacuated to Morocco and Israel two years prior. However, the Cesque Genocide did happen, where Cesque people openly rioted and rebelled against the Nazi Occupation, which lead to the deportation and massacre of about a million Cesque. Again in 1945, Ceyesca held another referendum. This one resulted in the loss of some land, but not much. The lands lost include the following:


Roussillon: integrated with the French Republic, with the excpetion of the Department of Gard, 1945

Auvergne: integrated with the French Republic, 1945

Savoy and Lyons: integrated with the French Republic, with the exception of the Departments of Isère, Haute Savoie, Savoie, and Drôme, 1945

Principality of Andorra: gained independence, 1945

the Balearic Isles: integrated with the Kingdom of Spain, 1945

Principality of Monaco: gained independence from County of Provence, 1945

Venice: integrated with the Italian Republic, 1945

After the War, Ceyesca slowly recovered, and the administrative divisions became Provinces governed by a council, other than Catalonia and Aragon-Navarre which became constituent kingdoms in the Cesque Union. In 1964, Cesque and British Cyprus reunited and joined the Kingdom of Vdara. From 1945 Charles V restored his throne until his death in 1968, when Caroline II ascended to the Cesque Throne. Caroline's reign is most notably known for being a second Cesque golden age, a time where the economy flourished and Ceyesca became one of Europe's main tourist destinations. After Franco's death in 1975, the Kingdoms of Catalonia and Aragon-Navarre were integrated into the Spanish Kingdom. In 1986, however, a terrorist attack was conducted in Milan, where a plane crashed into skyscraper, and the subway systems were bombed, this resulted in the death of approximately 5,000 people and the injury of 8,000 more, it is currently the deadliest terrorist attack to take place on Cesque soil, this incident garnered the attention of International Media. On September 11th, 2001, the Queen made a speech expressing empathy to the USA, as the 1986 Milan Attack was similarly conducted. The current Crown Prince of Ceyesca is Prince Henry, Crown Prince of Savoy (b. 1966).

Geography

Ceyesca's geography is quite different. Being situated on the Mediterranean, the coastal areas usually have warmer climates. The country is geographically separated into the French side, the Italian side, and the Corsican side. The French side consists mostly of mountains, with plains on the very west and very south, most notably in the coastal city centres such as Marseille and Nice. The geographic border between the French and Italian sides are the Alps, which run down their border like a spine of some sorts. The Italian side is mostly the opposite. The mountainous areas are mostly concentrated in the north and the west, the south is made up of highlands, and the center is vast plain known as the Po River Valley, which fluctuates between being 4 meters below sea level and 2,100 meters above sea level. Corsica, however, is a different story. Corsica is the most mountainous island in the Mediterranean, being over 2,000 meters above sea level at its highest.

Ceyesca borders the French Departments of Ain, Loire, Rhône, Ardèche, Aveyron, Lozère, and Hérault to the west and northwest, the Italian Regions of Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol, Veneto, Emilia-Romagna, and Tuscany to the northeast, east, and southeast, the region of Sardinia to the south of Corsica, and the Swiss Cantons of Geneva, Valais, Ticino, and Graubünden to the north.

Ceyesca has multiple divisions, these include the Larger Provinces, the Metropolitan Cities, the Royal Capital District, the Provinces, and their Prefectures, they are as follows:

Demographics

Ceyesca has a population of about 25 million, which is very diverse in ethnicity. About 51.16% or 12.9 million people identify as ethnically Cesque. Now, ethnic Cesques are a mix of a lot of other ethnicities, such as the Ligures, the Lombards, the Venetians, the Occitans, the Catalans, and the Sardinians. Cesque people are generally characterised by being tall, thin, fair skinned, light eyed, and light haired, this is due mostly to the clash between the Alpine and Mediterranean Climates and Peoples.

Total Ethnic Cesque Population outside Ceyesca: 14,010,000

Total Ethnic Cesque Population: 26,800,000

The second highest ethnic group are the Italians, which make up 13.24% of the population or 3.31 million people. This is mostly due to the proximity Ceyesca has with Italy, and the intermarriage between the Cesques and Italians. In fact, during the reign of the House of Savoy over Ceyesca, a large population of Italians moved to Ceyesca. In third place come the French, at 11.5% or 2.87 million people, again this is due to the close proximity to France and the alliance they have. Catalans come at number four, with 9.1% or 2.27 million people, this is because ethnic Cesques have a lot of Catalan background, and Catalan influenced the development of the Cesque Language. The Occitans come up at number four, and make up 7.3% of the population or 1.82 million people, this is due to the fact that Ceyesca covers areas of Occitania, such as Gard and Provence, where there are about 300,000 ethnic Occitans. The next ethnic group is rather peculiar, because they aren't Romance speakers, they are the Danes, they make up about 5.4% of the population and number at around 1.35 million people. Then there are the ethnic Corsicans and the Sardinians, who mostly live in Corsica. They make up about 2.1% of the population, or 525,000 people. Next up are the ethnic Germans. They live around the border areas of Savoy, Aosta Valley, and Lombardy. They make up about 1% of the population or 300,000 people. The rest of the population is made up of Spanish, Portuguese, Provençal, Maghrebi, Asians, Greeks, Immigrants and other groups of people that number to about 1% or 250,000 people.
