The Iberian Federal Empire


The The Iberian Federal Empire, commonly called the Iberia, is a federal monarchy in 5 continents. It is border by the Basque Country, Andorra and the Third French Empire in the Iberian Peninsula, by the Federation of Native Americans in Alaska, by many countries in Africa, by the Indian Kingdom and Dutch India in the Indian Subcontinent and by the Chinese Empire in Asia. Iberia comprises of a Federal District and 36 Federal States.

The Iberian role in the world is a complex one. Since the end of the 10 Years War (1901-1911), the Federal Empire has a alliance with England and Greece against Napoleonic France since 1940. It is a Cold War since 1942, when all sides were recoverd from the 1934 Recession.
Besides that, the country tries to protect it's culture and language after the end of the war, which gives recognition by other countries because of that efford.

Since the fall of Russia in 1917 and 1918 and then in 1945 with Siberia becoming independent, Iberia has become, without question, the largest country in the world, thanks to the territory of Alaska, Persia and the Kingdom of Vietnam. And of course, it is number one in political and civil freedom.

The Federal Empire has 87 years old since it was created, and it seems that everything remains the same.

Etymology

The term "Portuguese" was used between the years 1139 and 1922, where it represented the territories of Portugal in Europe and in their territories around the world.

But after the Luso-British Union was created, the term continued to be used, at least until the Luso-British Commonwealth of Nations was created in 1922. From then on, and after much discussion, the term "Luso-British" was adopted to represent the people from Canada to Papua New Guinea.

The change was difficult, especially for other European countries and outside Europe, but by the 1950s, all countries had already gotten used to the name.

History

The history of the little European kingdom started in 1139, when it is duke, Afonso Henriques, was proclaim as King of Portugal, but independence was reach in 1143, when Castille and Leon recognize the independence of Portugal, but it would take 36 years for the pope to recognize as well.

But Portugal's main gift for the world started in 1415, when king John I capture Ceuta on August 21st. This is the start of the Portuguese Colonial Empire (1415-1920). For the rest of the century, Portugal embarks on a series of discoveries, beginning of the Age of Discoveries. By 1488, Portuguese sailors had reached the tip of South Africa, which it meant that there was a way to India by sea. Though in 1492, a man called Christopher Colombus, tried to reach India by going west, which it led to the "discovery" of the Americas.

But, no matter, Portugal by 1498 had reach India by sea, and started to dominate the trade routes, which in return, made the Portuguese Crown very rich. In 1500, Pedro Álvares Cabral, on its way to India, discovered new lands, and those lands are what today we know as Brazil.

All was going well until King Sebastian I was lost in battle in 1578, creating a Succession Crisis in 1580, which lead to Portugal being governed by Spanish kings for 60 years, known as Iberian Union (1580-1640). This lasted until December 01st, 1640 , when a new Portuguese king was proclaimed, King John IV, leading to the Portuguese Restoration .

By the end of the XV Century, Portugal discovered gold in Brazil, which made them, again, the richest crown in Europe. But not everything was smooth sailing, because on November 01st, 1755, Lisbon was destroyed by an earthquake, follow by a tsunami and a huge fire. Lisbon was lost and, in this chaos, Marquês de Pombal, the man in charge, made plans to rebuild the capital and in the process destroyed its enemies.

The rest of the century was calm, except for the Seven Years War, in which Portugal, Great Britain and Prussia won the war, but in 1789, the French Revolution happen and in a matter of two decades, the famous French general, Napoleon Bonaparte, oversaw France, being its first emperor.

By 1807, Bonaparte ordered all Europe to stop making trade deals with Britain in the aim to win the Napoleonic Wars, but Portugal, being the oldest ally of the British, refuse to stop making trade deals, so France and Spain invaded Portugal, but Queen Maria I and his son, the future king John VI, plus 15.000 people, fled Portugal to Brazil. General Junot arrived late to arrest the royal family. In the beginning of 1808, they arrived in Brazil.

By 1815, Napoleon was sent to its second exile, but the Portuguese royal family did not return to Portugal, so it was created a new kingdom: the United Kingdom of Portugal, Brazil and the Algarve (1815-1822/1825). This UK did not last too long, since John VI's son, Prince Pedro, proclaim Brazilian Independence on September 7th, 1822 . It was the last time in the XIX Century that Portugal would claim Brazil.

Portugal was in the process of creating a new constitution, but some people in Portugal wanted Absolutism, and so a civil war started, the Portuguese Civil War or the Liberal War (1828-1834), in which Pedro I of Brazil, IV of Portugal, abdicated the Brazilian Throne in 1831 and return to Europe to help her daughter, Queen Maria II, in the civil war. The Liberals won the war, and the constitution was saved, and Portugal enter in the Constitutional Monarchy mood.

This new type of monarchy lasted 80 years, but the British Ultimatum of 1890 and the Lisbon Regicide on February 01st, 1908, show that the monarchy would not survive. So, republicans, in October 05th, 1910, took down the Monarchy and proclaim the First Portuguese Republic (1910-1919). Though this first republic was a big mess, almost like anarchy.

In 1914, the world entered a state of war. Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia a month after the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo. After that, the Russian Empire joined Serbia, which caused the German Empire to join Austria-Hungary and this caused the Third French Republic to join the Russian Empire.

The United Kingdom entered the war after the Germans invaded Belgium, which the latter was under the protection of the British. At the end of the year, Britain, France and Germany were in a system of trench warfare. Portugal did not enter the war, remaining neutral during the first two years of the war.

It was in 1916 that Portugal entered the war, because it required 70 German ships in Portuguese ports to be delivered to the British, which made the German Empire declare war on Portugal. But the situation of the war, the objectives of the war, ended up changing between 1917 and 1918.

France, worn out by the three years of war, entered a revolution. A military riot ended as a military rebellion that overthrew the government. During this time, Britain and Germany had stopped the war due to the Spanish Flu that was attacking their soldiers, and the British had eased the blockade on the German Empire. But when France became a syndicalist state, it turned against its former allies. It ended up occupying Nigeria and Guinea-Bissau and created revolutions in Burma and New Zealand.

The United Kingdom ended the blockade against Germany and created, with its help, a blockade to Syndicalist France, which in 1920 created a genocide in the African territories in the center of the continent, causing many to ask for protection from the British Empire. And it was in 1920 that the Luso-British Union was created, after a monarchical revolution in Portugal in 1919, putting Admiral Canto e Castro in the kingdom's regency.

But many Frenchmen, like Charles de Gaulle, fled to London after the revolution, as many feared for their lives, and it was de Gaulle who created the Kingdom of France in Corsega in 1925.

With the union of the two countries, the process of creating an imperial federation began, uniting all the domains, at least the remaining ones, and the other colonial territories, which stopped being colonies to become federal states with the same rights as in London or Lisbon. But South Africa did not like the idea very much, especially after they got to Namibia. Then, in January 1921, South Africa ended the monarchy and created a republic, returned the territory to Germany and left the war.

The talks were difficult and complicated, especially because of India, but after guaranteeing that their culture would be preserved and that they would have another status, they agreed to participate in this federation. Then, on July 1, 1922, the Luso-British Commonwealth of Nations was created in London, uniting the two empires in a federation. The German Empire congratulated itself on the creation of this new state, as well as Belgium, Holland and Italy.

The First World War ended in 1925, when Syndicalist France lost its territories in Africa to de Gaulle. The Treaty of Madrid was signed on August 1, 1925, ending the 11 years of war that killed several people, and which had a change in objectives between 1918 and 1919. But while peace lasted, rebellions began to appear, most recent being in 1997, in Ireland, which ended on March 25th, 2021. But the Imperial Federation was preserved and remained stable and democratic.

Geography

Geography

Egyptian Sahara Desert

The geography of the Commonwealth is very diverse.

From the mountains of the Himalayas in India to the Sahara desert in Egypt, the Commonwealth has everything, so to speak.

The Commonwealth, being a single state, has several borders with several countries. In Europe, it has a border with Spain in Portugal and Gibraltar, and by sea with the Ottoman State and Italy with Cyprus and Malta.

In North America, it borders the United States of America and the Pacific States of America with Canada and Mexico with Honduras, and by sea with Cuba from the Bahamas and Jamaica. In South America, it borders Syndicalist Venezuela and the Brazilian Empire from Guyana, and by sea, with Syndicalist Argentina from the Falklands.

In Africa, it borders the Kingdom of France in the north, Liberia in the Atlantic, the Ethiopian Empire in the Horn of the Continent, several countries in the center of the continent and the Union of South Africa in the south of the continent.

In Arabia it borders the Kingdom of Arabia, the Kingdom of Oman and the Kingdom of Palestine, and in the Indian subcontinent with the Imperial State of Iran, with the Kingdom of Afghanistan, with Xinjiang, with Nepal, with Tibet, with Bhutan and Burma from India.

In China with Guangdong from Macau and Hong Kong and in South Asia with the Kingdom of Thailand.

Climate

The Commonwealth's climate is diverse as is its geography.

From the territories of Canada to Papua New Guinea, there are several climates that define each territory. In Canada, in its north, and due to its position close to the Arctic it is very cold, and there are no large population centers in that area.

The Caribbean is known for being a perfect place to go to the beach with its magnificent sun and tropical climate, which makes it known.

In Europe, the climate changes depending on the seasons. London is known for always raining, but it is like that all over the island of Great Britain. Portugal has a similar climate, but it is more towards the Mediterranean, as is Malta and Cyprus. In Africa, we have the tropical climates that abound in the center, the continent and in some states and also a desert climate in Egypt and Sudan. The situation is the same in Arabia.

In India, the climate is like Canada. In the north, it is cold due to the himalais and the south is warmer. And in the rest of Asia to the Australian continent, it is a bit tropical, but also with storms that hit Timor and Malaysia in the years 1949 and 1989.

Environment

The United Kingdom is known to have started the Industrial Revolution in 1750. And from the 19th century onwards, several factories were built for a population that was moving to cities.

But from the middle of the twentieth century, new environmental measures had to be implemented, before the consequences were observed.

But with the measures implemented, the industries have also adapted. From 1990, new technologies began to be used so that the industry was less polluting and that it helps to contribute to the beautiful environment.

Nowadays, the environment is clean and protected by the measures taken in the last century, being praised by several nations that now have to fight against what the Empire managed to avoid before it was too late, as in several nations in China and elsewhere from Asia.

Demographics

Population

The City of London

The Luso-British population is very diverse when it comes to living in cities.

Although in India almost all live together, in cities like London or Lisbon the population is more spread out, due to the commerce that occupies the old buildings.

But many people live in the countryside, despite indications that the population would live almost entirely on the coast. This is due to government programs to send people to the imperial interior that were beginning to remain as if they were being abandoned. This made it possible for many villages to survive and helped the population of India to descend in many cities, to help with the water distribution system and the environment. Even so, the city of London occupies the seventh place in the ranking of the ten largest cities in the Empire.

Language

The Commonwealth has four official languages.

Despite the first Union, the official languages were Portuguese and English, when the Luso-British Commonwealth of Nations was created, the official languages became four: Portuguese, French, Hindi and English.

All languages are taught in all schools of the Commonwealth, and with secondary languages German and Spanish. Portuguese is one of the official languages to help in the territories that were from the old Portuguese Empire; English is an official language due to that it is one of the main languages of the world and of the old British Empire; French is an official language due to the question of Quebec, since, historically, Quebec belonged to France until it lost during the Seven Years' War and Hindi is an official language because India is one of the states with the most population from across the empire.

The four languages make the Commonwealth multicultural and multiracial in the eyes of the world.

Religion

The issue of religion is very delicate to discuss.

It has always been a European issue to teach Christianity to various populations, especially in Africa. But when the Union was created in 1920 and then the Commonwealth in 1922, this issue was brought to the table by India, as they had Hindu as their main religion. The same happened with Malaysia.

This issue was resolved in 1934, when the Lisbon Proclamation was made, extinguishing the state's official religion and saying that the state did not have an official religion. Many liked this attitude on the part of London to keep the Empire together.

Even today, despite the coronations being made at Westminster Abbey, the monarch is no longer head of the Church of England, but the Archbishop of Canterbury is now the head of the Church.

Government

The St Edward's Crown,
symbol of the Commonwealth King

The Commonwealth is a federal parliamentary constitutional monarchy.
The parliament is a multi-party with universal suffrage to all citizens of the Empire and all those are abroad and that can't go to their normal polling station to vote, by going to the embassies.

The Prime Minister is elected by all citizens of the Commonwealth in a day that the government chooses. On the election night, if the Prime Minister that won doesn't get a majority in parliament, he is forced to make a coalition government, known as the National Goverment, which only happen two times. If he gets the majority, then he goes to Buckingham Palace to be asked by the monarch to form a government. The prime minister that broke the record on winning five consecutive times was Margaret Thatcher.

The monarch, in this case, King Jorge VI, is the Head of State of the Commonwealth. His powers are ceremonial, but he can often become head of government.

If the prime minister is involved in a corruption case or ends up having health problems and has to leave the government, the monarch will temporarily assume that power until the party finds a replacement. If not found, the monarch will call the population to early elections so that the government can continue or else a new government comes to power.

The Imperial Federation can be divided into three parts: kingdoms, commonwealths and federal states.

The kingdoms are the kingdoms of Portugal, Ireland and Great Britain. Commonwealths are from Canada, Puerto Rico, India and Malaysia. There are 59 federal states, from the Americas to Oceania.

The kingdoms are headed by kings appointed by the imperial king or by the government when the imperial king is not available. Commonwealths and federal states are head of state prime ministers, who are chosen by the local population. These prime ministers have to answer to the Prime Minister who is in London.

Flag of the Federal State of
New England

Each kingdom, each commonwealth and each federal state is represented by a civil ensign. The flag of each state must fly in the house of parliament, in government buildings and in royal residences when the monarch is there.

These flags must be next to the national flag, and if the monarch or someone important dies, it must be half hoisted. The new flags were created in the beginning of 2001, 3 years after the arrival of Jorge VI to the power. It was he himself who asked for the flags to be updated, since the old ones had been in use since 1922.

The new ensigns were made with 6 colours, so that they can represent other things, and here is what they represent:
-Red represents the Empire on the land and civilian institutions;
-Blue represents Empire on the sea;
-Orange represents the Orient;
-Green represents the Arm Forces;
-Purple represents the Royal Family;
-White represents the Government.

Of course, there are also other flags for federal states that do not follow the civil ensigns, which is the case with the flag of the Federal State of New England, which stands as an example of not following the original pattern. The flag of the Federal State of the Midwest also has the same situation as New England.

The entire Commonwealth is represented by its flags in front of the parliament in London, in the so-called Commonwealth Square, in which only the flags are represented, from the National to the one of each of the 59 federal states, kingdoms and commonwealths. This shows that since 1922 each population and each culture has its rights preserved and represented and protected from syndicalism.

Foreign Office and Military

Foreign Office

Map of the European Economic and Military Community (EEMC)

After the creation of the Luso-British Union, the old embassies of each kingdom were united into one, and the Foreign Office gained more power, as it now got more opportunities to negotiate.

It was when France became a syndicalist in 1918 that Germany and the Luso-British Union came together, not only because of royal marriages, but politically, since the Union's ally ended up in revolution and was now attacking them.

Since 1925, Germany and the Imperial Federation have collaborated to maintain peace, but both have different alliances. Germany has had the Reichspakt since 1928 and the Commonwealth created its own in 1949.

The Commonwealth, in 1949, along side with Spain and Italy, founded the European Economic and Military Community, or EEMC for short. It is a economic and military block that was founded to defend against the French Third Internationale. The Netherlands joined in 1953 and Greece joined in 1957. Belgium, Denmark and Romania joined in 1959.

The community has been envolved in various crisis in the beginning of the 50's and they almost every time came up on top of the Syndicalism faction. Today, these 9 nations are more united than before, and with the help of their overseas provinces, Commonwealths, federal states and kingdoms in case of Imperial Federation, they can help with the economy of the nine.

They are the second most powerful alliance in the world, behind their main rival, but in terms of economics, they are the most powerful economic in the world. They even developed Concorde, but only the richer people travels on them. Most people travel by sea, on big Ocean Liners.

Of the former domains, none has a special relationship with the Empire, as South Africa continues with Apartheid and Burma and New Zealand are still closely linked to French unionism.

But it has a special relationship with the Empire of Brazil, since the royal family is also linked to Brazil by the Royal House of Braganza, and also has an economic connection with Japan, especially in Oil. Ethiopia and Iran have large embassies in London, after King Edward VIII went to the celebrations of each imperial state.

Military

Of the entire army, pride is located in the Royal Navy. The oldest, the Royal Navy patrols the Atlantic and helps protect the Commonwealth. Although the age of the great warships has passed, there are still three large warships: HMS Portugal, HMS Warspite and HMS London.

The navy now has cruisers, frigates and destroyers in every corner of the world, especially in New South Wales, India and Southampton. But it also has aircraft carriers, one of which is the most recent, the King Jorge Class Aircraft Carrier, being the most innovative to help transport planes to any corner of the world. Only two are currently in operation, with three more being built.

The royal army is one of the most experienced in the world, being used to any climate on the planet: from the cold of Canada, to the forests of Africa and the Sahara Desert.

Since 1922, the army has participated in several wars, despite the First World War (1914 - 1925), the context in which this federation was created. When the Ottoman Empire fell in 1919, the United Kingdom, then the Luso-British Commonwealth of Nations, helped the young Kingdom of Arabia to maintain the territories they were allowed, with the exception of Palestine, which would be a safe place for Jews and not only . The Royal Army was called upon to protect this territory for 20 years, when they were withdrawn when Palestine signed a treaty with Arabia in 1943.

He also participated in the Thai War (1950 - 1974), when syndicalism tried to overthrow the democratic government. The war lasted 24 years. But also in the Civil War in Afghanistan (1979 - 1990), when the communism that had been tried in Russia tried to be implemented in Afghanistan. Although it was a failure, it helped bring the two countries closer together after the victory of the monarchists in 1990.

The royal army was involved in the Irish Syndicalist Rebellion (1997 - 2021), in which they want to form a synchicalist state alongside a monarchical state. This started when France urged that this situation be reached, which is was over by 2021, when the royalist irish manage to put an end to the rebelion.

The Royal Air Force was created during the First World War, and was important during 1920 to 1925, when it was necessary to help Germany and the French and African population in Central Africa.

After that, the RAF played an important role when Argentina, before falling into civil war, attacked the Falklands in the spring of 1985. It was this that helped the Empire to retain control of the Falklands and that Margaret Thatcher, the prime minister between 1979 and 1997, remained in power, despite not being popular.

It also helped in the Afghanistan war in observing the territory and attacking communist positions.

The pound sterling was once the most powerful currency in the world, in what was called the Pax Britannica (1815 - 1914), but now it has been replaced by the German currency, but it remains a strong currency because it has managed to adapt to the new times and also able to adapt to the imperial system.

Despite the economic crises of 1939 and 2010, which hit the whole world, the Luso-British economy had to adapt that times were changing, and many cuts were made, but this also helped that there was no war and that support social programs and programs were created.

It was even the crisis of 2010, when King Jorge VI caused the government to create more social programs and more jobs, and that it started to cut in many aspects. It was also when the royal family started paying taxes, also after the Windsor Castle Fire in 1999.

The economy is also supported by the tourism industry, which is now an industry that continues to expand, as places with Angola, India, the Caribbean and even Portugal and London are chosen by tourists to visit and learn from. But the transport industry also helps, as many choose Luso-British shipping companies to reach different destinations. One such company is Cunard, with its ships from a glorious era, such as the RMS Queen Mary.

Culture

Culture defines a nation. This is the case with the Empire. The culture that the countries had became one when the Luso-British Commonwealth of Nations was created in 1922.

Many cultures were preserved due to this act, since french syndicalism often destroys cultures, as it almost happened in 1923.

Literature, music, painting define Luso-British culture in a world where culture is in danger of unionism. And the Empire helped to protect many of these cultures, especially after the Spanish Flu attacked the world between 1918 and 1920.

Architecture

When it comes to architecture, it is very diverse.

Modern architecture originated in the decades after the French Revolution, then known as La Belle Époque (1871 - 1914).

London is a clear example of this. It went from being a medieval city to being a modern city, the capital of a great Empire, which is now the capital of a big Commonwealth. And of course, now the capital has modern buildings that show the growth of the city and of course, many of the old buildings are being recovered, such as the Elizabeth Tower next to the Palace of Westminster, better known as Big Ben, the clock pointed at the five corners of the world.

The Palace of Westminster and the Elisabeth Tower
is an example of Victorian Style

One of the styles of architecture that is still seen and that is often used in buildings is the Victorian Style. London is a clear example of this style, since it is a style that corresponds to the reign of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom from 1837 to 1901, in which the expansion of the British Empire was seen, and of new ideas of architecture, which resulted in this new style.

There is also the Indian style, in which many buildings in India have this style, such as the royal home of the monarchs in Delhi. Some houses in Estoril also have a lot of this style.

Canada also has its own style, which can be seen in the Canadian Parliament building in Ottawa. An imperial style that everyone admires a lot. Hong Kong and Macau also have their own architecture and Africa too, but European architecture is often used.

Literature

Literature is also an important milestone in culture.

From top left clockwise:
Eça de Queiroz, Agatha Christie,
Eric Nicol, Arundhati Roy

Both empires had great writers in the past, such as Luís Vaz de Camões or William Shakspears. Both with two great works: Camões with "Os Lusíadas", the great empope of Portuguese discoveries and William Shakspears with "Hamlet", a great play of English theater.

But in the 19th century there was also a great Portuguese writer who demonstrated the great writing that is still read in schools today: Eça de Queiroz, with his most important work "Os Maias".

But there are also other great writers, as well as female writers. In India, we have the writer Arundhati Roy, in which she wrote great novels and remains a great writer.

In Canada we had Eric Nicol, in which The Province newspaper had his famous humor columns, which are still compiled today and he ended up writing 40 books. He passed away in 2011.

In Britain, we had the famous Agatha Christie, also known as "Queen / Lady of Crime", this due to her police books, like "Crime on the Orient Express", which was quite successful and several films and games. She passed away in 1976, leaving a great legacy in dramatist and police writing.

Infrastructure

When it comes to infrastructure, the theme differs a lot.

The main form of transport is the train, since the line from Cairo to Luanda was built between 1926 to 1938, but they also had to be updated for the new type of high speed train, developed in the Kingdom of France, the so-called TGV.

But another means of transport is automobiles. Since the expansion of trains, many roads have also started to be built throughout the Empire, with several and several kilometers of road. It ended up sweetening when the highways were built in the 1960s.

Another means is maritime. The Commonwealth needs a navy to help protect its citizens as well as to transport goods. Ports were built throughout the Empire and the Suez Canal was expanded and updated. Although there are also commercial airplanes, many prefer to use the sea to go from side to side, taking advantage of a trip by sea.

And of course, the energy and water supply system is not very complex, since each state has its own system, it is not one, but it would be chaos. All systems are controlled by the Ministry of the Interior.

Energy

At the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, one of the energy sources to be used was coal.

But with the advancement of technologies, oil started to be used, this since the Commonwealth has access to Arabian oil. But from the mid-twentieth century, when environmental measures were being implemented, new technologies were implemented so that pollution started to decrease.

In the 21st century, with the expansion of these measures, renewable energies started to be used, and when 2021 arrived, more than 80% of homes and companies are using renewable energies, making the use of less non-renewable energies, as in the case of oil. And thanks to this, the pollution rate is the lowest in Europe and the world.

Read factbook

Morning everyone.

I bring you a little update, it is little, for now.

As you know, yesterday I changed my main flag to this Roman Style Flag (something like Owlograddid with his flag), all thanks to The New Nordic Union and this due to the next monarch's reign, which will begin, probably at the end of March. And now, I have two flags: the main flag, which is purple and a red variant, and you can see that variant in the factbook above.

So, much of the times you will see the purple one, but sometimes, like my Birthday or national holiday, or when I want to fly the red variant.

I hope you like it,
The Imperial State of Iberia of NorthPortugal
