History: The area now known as New Waldensia was originally inhabited by an array of wild, northern tribes. In the early 1200s, a religious movement led by Peter Waldo swept through several of the mountainous tribes, leading them to reject paganism and embrace the Waldensian faith.

Over the next three hundred years, there was much conflict in the region, as Waldensian believers spread and became persecuted minorities among several of the other tribes. This came to a head in 1537, when the Great Waldensian War broke out. The core Waldensian clans (now the principalities of Waldensia and Arnaud) were the target of a coordinated invasion that nearly achieved the destruction of the Waldensian forces. However, the key battle of RorÓ was a decisive victory for the Waldensians, who managed to shatter the main enemy force despite being outnumbered. Over the next year, the Waldensians successfully fended off another invasion and launched a campaign that obliterated the opposition forces and brought much of the region under their control. In 1539, the victorious Waldensians forced the other tribes to sign the Treaty of Luserna, which established religious liberty and surrendered control to the Waldensian tribes.

Over the next three hundred years, New Waldensia (to differentiate from the principality of Waldensia, the core origin area of the faith) expanded from the mountainous regions to reach the sea. A civil war in Hussia rocked the country in 1721, as well as 1844 (continuing to this day between Hussia/Venalda and Waldensia/Arnaud/Toulode).

Government: New Waldensia is subdivided into five principalities, each governed by a hereditary Prince. These in turn lead the Council of Nobles, which governs the nation at large. Each prince receives 1/3rd of the taxes collected in their province, and are responsible for maintaining their portion of the army and militia.
