The Egalitarian Integralist Kongurreich of Droiden
Fra Stjernerne vi kommer, til Stjernerne vi stiger!
From the Stars we come, to the Stars we ascend!
The Kongurreich of Droiden, commonly called Droiden, is a Parliamentary Monarchy in North Europe. It is bordered on the South by Novae Romae, on the east by Siberia, and on the west by the Atlantic Ocean. Droiden covers just under 5 million square kilometers and has an estimated population of over 400 million. Droiden is divided into 28 duchies, each divided into 5 provinces.
Droiden was founded by Hroald Hrafnvartrsson around 488, after being banished from a Danish Tribe for wrongful behavior, along with three other families. Hroald marched southeast, and settled in Modern-day Urohe. Much was well, and children were born. Many tribals flocked to Droiden to escape the tyrannical rule of the Tribal Chiefs. Fhearghail MacMhaolDominhaich, Trondur Sidgmundrsson, and Dagobius Fursti, friends of Hroald, also held high positions in the new nation.
But all was not well in this new land. The first Cnutian Raid, led by Cnut the Terrible of Imperium Cnuti, took place in 661. It saw much of the nation's infrastructure broken and left Droiden crippled enough for an easy invasion by 666. After the disasterous Cnutian Invasion, the son of Vidkunn, Hroar, was the only living descendant of Hrafnvartrsson. For 390 years, Hroar and his descendants lived on the run from Cnutian assassins. Eventually, Jorgen Polakssen, the great-great grandson of Hroar, found evidence of corruption, and dealings in the Brandian Slave Trade, and used this to raise an army of knights, swordsmen, and archers. On December 16, 1057, Jorgen raided Ivor VI Cnuti's palace, killing him and his family. After this, the nations of Goldholder and Furstheim, formed by descendants of Dagobius and Trondur, respectively, began attempts to take the land of Droiden.
Goldholder struck first. Tobian I Sidgmundrsson, the Great-Great Grandson of Trondur, raided Urohe, and he ruled to his death. His son, Tobian II, was assassinated by Yngvild I Polaksson, whose short rule was ended by Fiedri I Fursti. Fiedri's son, Roggi, was attacked and cornered by Pierid I Polaksson, who gave him this ultimatum: Give your Daughter to my Son, or you will all die. From then, until 1552, Droiden was at peace.
During the First Droidenean Civil War, the 8 noble houses all found themselves in a civil war. The Polakssen line had ended, and the Kingdom was to be decided by a vote from the people of Urohe. However, the houses disliked the vote to form a Republic, so House Kjærsgaard, House Andronicus and House Forrestor voted to break Droiden into 8 Nations, but each house wanted the entirety of Droiden for their house. After a year and a half, House Kjærsgaard returned the Shards of Gylo, and Leif I was crowned Kongur of Droiden.
DROIDENEAN NATIONAL ANTHEM
A STATE OF EMERGENCY HAS BEEN DECLARED
The nation was shocked today when Gabbi Rudenau, Chairwoman of Bløk Thacheap, openly admitted that she had sexual relations with Prime Minister Antton Immonen. The recently divorced Chairwoman said, "I am incredibly sorry for my actions, and should I remain Chairwoman of this great party, I promise that it will not happen again. Prime Minister Immonen responded to the accusations, saying "Even if I did have sexual relations with a prominent opposition leader, why is it the business of the media? Am I not open enough?" Since Immonen responded, some questionable text messages have surfaced. Once more information surfaces, we will notify you.
