The House of Mgar (Muh-GAR), also called the House of Mahangs or the Imperial Clan, was one of the most influential and distinguished royal houses of the Isles. The throne of the Khas-Kirat Empire was continuously occupied by the Mgars from 964 until their extinction in the female line in 1918. The house also produced emperors, kings and queens of the Kingdom of Noronica (later on the Nyssic Colonial Empire), Holy Domananian Empire, Dominion of Nhoor (through the Cenharruc-Mgar dynasty), the Osean Empire of the Eastern Isles, as well as rulers of several San Montagnan principalities. From the 17th Century onward, following the disastrous Heavenly War of the Hangates, the dynasty was split between its "mainland Magarati" and "outer" cadet branches predominately in what are now Samudera (Banser), Razzgriz (Ran), Wellsia (Xiangu) and New Totzka (Asygno). Although they ruled distinct territories, they nevertheless maintained close relations and frequently intermarried.

The House takes its name from Mgar, wife of Mahang Mabo, the adopted son of Srijunga Hang the Conqueror and the Second Mahang of the Khas-Kirat Empire. The couple had four daughters but not a single son and the lack of male heir troubled Mabo. Legends state that Mgar convinced her husband to change the law and designate one of their daughters as the Third Mahang of the Khas-Kirat Empire. However, being unable to choose between his daughters the perfect heir, Mabo made succession elective for his daughters and their matrilineal descendants. He further ensured that each of his daughter had to get the backing of one of the major tribes of the Khas-Kirat Empire and prove themselves in battlefield as it would have been required by traditional law for sons. In order to do so, he allowed his daughters to lead their own mercenary bands and earn prestige at the battlefields of distant lands. All of the four daughters participated in the succession race and each married bore three daughters each. The Hanglaw region would later be known as Bara Magarat due to each of the 12 hangates that emerged out of the Heavenly War of the Hangates claiming descent from one of these 12 granddaughters of Mgar and Mabo.

In 945, Mabo and Mgar's second daughter Tira, married into the Yakthung tribe (also known as Kirat-Limbus later on), would be crowned the Third Mahang by the Kurultai of tribal leaders after her father's death. Even within the Mgar dynasty, her direct matrilineal descendants made the most Mahangs.

The "mainland Magarati" House of Mgar became extinct on November 11 of 1909 with the accidental murder (which some allege to be deliberate assassination) of Tilija Hangma when an unknown bullet struck her in the crossfire in Courlaroux during the 1909 Revolution in Dormill and Stiura. Her death would precipitate across the Isles as several would-be Hangs from "outer" cadet branches began vying for the throne. After the War of the Khas-Kirati Succession (also called Great Gael War in Gael, War of Contested Throne in Raedlon and Third Central Argus War in parts of Argus), the Khas-Kirat Empire's throne was passed to TBD of the Noronnican crown. TBD dissolved the empire and established the highly centralized Magarati Dominion under Noronnican administration.

Current Mgar pretenders


Samudera

There are several families in Samudera that claim descent from Gole Hang, the founder of Kilat Hangate. Among them, the most famous is the House of Banser, which was the last dynasty to rule the Kingdom of Samudera (the successor state of Hangate of Sanggar which itself was successor state to the Kilat Hangate). All of the surviving members of the Banser family have claims to the Khas-Kirat Empire as well as the Kingdom of Samudera.

  • TBD Banser members

Nhoor

In Nhoor, Rhato Cenharruc-Mgar and her children have claims to both the Dominion of Nhoor and the Khas-Kirat Empire. Her grandmother AnhŪ (1834 - 1888) was married to the Mgar prince Sheng Hang (1830 - 1925). Due to the Mgars favoring direct matrilineal inheritance while considering children of male members to be "outer families"; the couple's children became the cadet branch known today as the House of Cenharruc-Mgar (officially proclaimed by their second child and eldest son Armhad III after he became the King of Nhoor in 1898). During the Khas-Kirati War of Succession, Rhato's mother CalavŪ involved herself in the succession crisis despite other members of her family forbidding her to do so (as a dominion of Osean Empire of the Eastern Isles in Razzgriz, Nhoor was obliged to support the Osean Ran dynasty who had their own candidate vying for the title of Mahang). As punishment for embarrassing the nation in front of their Osean overlords and the international community with her unauthorized involvement, CalavŪ and her descendants were excluded from being in the line of succession to the throne of Nhoor and even exiled. The current pretenders from this particular line of Cenharruc-Mgar family are -

  • Rhato Cenharruc-Mgar: born in 1939 and pretender since 1988

  • Eldest Daughter of Rhato Cenharruc-Mgar: born in 1965

  • Daughter of Eldest Daughter of Rhato Cenharruc-Mgar: born in 1990

  • First Son of Daughter of Eldest Daughter of Rhato Cenharruc-Mgar:

  • Second Son of Daughter of Eldest Daughter of Rhato Cenharruc-Mgar:

  • Younger Daughter of Rhato Cenharruc-Mgar: born in 1972

  • Daughter of Younger Daughter of Rhato Cenharruc-Mgar: born in 1972

  • Son of Rhato Cenharruc-Mgar:

Mehis II of House Mgar-Ran, the current and acting Razz of the Grand Principality of Razzgriz, is another strong claimant to the title of Mahang.

Havalland

The descendants of King Hans III and Aspru; with the living ones being King Leon III of Havalland and his siblings along with the duchess of Turwick and her brother.

The nations of the United Prefectures of Noronica and the Federal Union of Almorea enjoy unique warm relations due to their joint history. Their relations stem from Almorea's colonial past, when Noronnican settlers founded the settlement of New Nolon in 1632 in what is now known as Almorea. After Almorea's independence in 1763 relations were cold between the two nations, as the two sought to fight one another over trade, resulting in famous events such as the bombardment of the Black Isle.

In the twentieth century, the two nations came to fight alongside one another against the Neo-Imperialist nations in the Imperial War (1941-49). From 1949, Noronica and Almorea have maintained warm relations with a stable trading relationship.

The Noronnican State Executive views Almorea as a natural friend on the international stage and as a preferable trading partner due to cultural ties. Both nations share much of the same views when it comes to other nation in the region.

Travel Advice For The
Confederacy Of Alteran Republics
Updated: June 2019

Summary

  • Capital: Nova Lantea

  • Population: 23 million

  • Languages: Alteran, Nyssic

Noronnican tourists visit Altera each year. Most visits are trouble-free. However, it is strongly advised that tourists stay away from often violent demonstrations instigated by the racially-charged Far-Right Group Altera-For-Alterans.

Terrorism cannot be ruled out. With the explosion and killing of Curia members in Nova Lantea last year, it is imperative that you remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity to local authorities.

Extra caution is advised around the Alteran-Xrevaro border due to an increased risk of wildfires crossing the border during the summer season.

Local Laws

Alteran vehicles drive on the left-hand side of the road like Noronnican vehicles and observe similar laws and regulations to that of the Noronnican Highway Code. Make sure to keep your driving license with you on the road and stay updated on Alteran road laws and regulations.

Random checks may be initiated by local authorities in Altera. Noronnican citizens should be able to identify themselves through the gov.nor online service, but keeping your passport on your person is recommended.

Freedom of religion is observed in Altera. There is no state-religion, nor are there any religious restrictions enforced.

There is LGBTQ+ legislation in Altera, including the recognition of same-sex marriages. However, transgender identities are not recognised in Altera. Transgenderism is treated as a mental disorder in Altera and therefore some transgender tourists may be a target for discrimination. This is a rare occurrence, but should you feel threatened, inform the local authorities.

Agreement

Noro-Alteran interactions stretch as far back as 1432, when Noronnican sailors navigated Alteran waters and interacted with the indigenous population. The relations between the two territories were tumultuous at first, yet a harmonious protectorate system was developed over time. This harmony would continue for centuries, as Altera grew in both size and wealth. Relations strengthened in the Imperial War of 1941, as the two fought in unison as part of a greater imperial family against the rising tide of neo-colonialists.

Noronica and Altera maintains a unique and special relationship due to Altera being an overseas territory of Noronica. Due to political change in both territories, the conditions of said relationship may shift over time, but Altera remains a steadfast and trusted partner in all Noronnican affairs.

Noronnican and Athara Magarati relations stretch back to the time of the Khas-Kirat Empire, where the Kingdom of Noronica, (then under the reign of Queen Magaidh I) sought to ally itself with the encroaching Khas-Kirat hordes. Through political marriages and cultural exchange, the two nations were intertwined for centuries before relations grew colder as Noronica developed its colonial reach. For some time, the two nations were colonial rivals, warring against one another on several prominent occasions, including the infamous Tea War of 1821. After a Noronnican prince was elected as Mahang of the Empire, the nation was reorganised into the short-lived Magarati Dominion.

After the Imperial War of 1941, the two nations have reinvigorated their relationship, now boasting excellent trading relations and stable international relations. Athara Magarat took an integral role in the War in ArvŠn in 2017 and in the more recent operations in Charbagnia and Kachee.

Travel Advice For The
Federation Of Balnik
Updated: June 2019

Summary

  • Capital: Rustov

  • Population: 26 million

  • Languages: Valkoipuh

There is a very small amount of Noronnicans that visit Balnik each year. Visits do not always, but have been known to end in arrest. This is due to the fact that Balnik operates very strict laws on freedom of speech.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs advises against travelling to Balnik due to the chance of detainment, and due to regional concern over the practices of the government of Balnik.
,
Local Laws

High spending on infrastructure means that most roads are likely well-maintained, yet there may be some areas of difficulty in the north due to harsh weather conditions. Balnik operates on very different laws to Noronica, therefore it is highly recommended that you research the road laws and regulations, especially to avoid illegality.

The possibility of identification checks are very high in Balnik. It is imperative that you keep all your identification documents and travel documents on your person during your stay in Balnik.

There are limitations on many social aspects, so it is discouraged to openly practice religion while visiting Balnik.

All aspects of the LGBTQ+ community are outlawed in Balnik. Travelling to Balnik is not recommended, as discrimination is highly likely and it may risk your arrest and imprisonment. This includes those that identify as being a part of the transgender community. It is highly discouraged to discuss your sexuality in Balnik.

Travel Advice For The
Confederate Monarchy Of Belle Ilse en Terre
Updated: June 2019

Summary

  • Capital: Ost-in-Edhil

  • Population: 6.7 million

  • Languages: French, English, Anglis

Noronnican tourists visit Belle Ilse en Terre each year. Most visits are trouble-free. It is recommended that you book official tours when you visit the countryside, as facilities in rural areas are rudimentary.

As a developing feudal absolute monarchy, Belle Ilse en Terre is subject to state censorship and infighting between landowners. It is imperative that you maintain a close eye on the news and be vigilant.

Local Laws

Ilsan vehicles drive on the left-hand side of the road like Noronnican vehicles. The funding that goes into infrastructure is mainly focused on urban development. The standard of roads is significantly higher in urban areas, therefore it is recommended that you plan carefully when driving in rural areas.

There is a chance that you might be asked to show identification by local authorities, especially during a time of strife between landowners and their borders. Please ensure you keep all travel documents on your person.

Christianity is dominant in Belle Ilse en Terre, and freedom of religion is not enshrined in law. However, there is no legislation barring other religions. Due to its conservative nature, it is recommended that you enter churches with respect and an understanding of traditional conduct.

There are strict societal views on the LGBTQ+ community, which is frowned upon in Belle Ilse en Terre. There is no legal recognition, including that of same-sex marriage and over transgenderism.

Belle Ilse en Terre and Noronica have limited relations. They were on opposing sides in several colonial wars, especially in Argus. In the Imperial War of 1941, the two states were at odds, as Belle Ilse en Terre sought to nurture its own colonial influence as a Neo-Colonialist power.

The Noronnican State Executive views Belle Ilse en Terre with caution, as it is often unstable due to its unbalanced aristocratic system. However, it continues with open trade, as it warmly embraces the new Ilsan administration's desire to reform Belle Ilse en Terre's archaic systems and remove serfdom.

The nations of Noronica and Corindia have enjoyed stable and positive relations for decades, having officially begun during the time of the Noronnican Empire, as the two states were under a special relationship with one another under a deal between their two governments. During the Twentieth-Century, this relationship extended into a military one, with the Corindi and Noronnican operating with one another during the two most tumultuous wars of the century.

The State Executive regards Corindia as a friendly trading partner due to the two nations' keen interest in working with one another over several industries, most notably arms and aviation industries. However, politically, it is aware that Corindia leans towards the Mesder Sea Treaty Organisation, which hampers the two nations' relations.

Travel Advice For The
Princely Republic Of Menna Shuli
Updated: June 2019

Summary

  • Capital: Shuhakallu

  • Population: 38 million

  • Languages: MÍnnan

Noronnican tourists visit Menna Shuli each year. Most visits are trouble-free, but it has been known for some Noronnican nationals to be subject to kidnappings or violent crime, especially over payments.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs heavily encourages that you contact your local GP months before your visit, so as to be given the recommended immunisations for a visit to Menna Shuli. The healthcare system in Menna Shuli is known to be inadequate, especially in rural areas. Make sure to travel with intensive travel insurance.

The level of caution was increased due to increasing concerns over possible terrorist movements around the nation and from the political instability caused by the uhitap's sudden health problems. It is vital that you maintain an eye on the news and listen to orders issued by the authorities.

Local Laws

The roads in Menna Shuli are of very poor quality and are maintained at varying degrees. It is imperative that you are fully aware of any traffic news over live broadcast as, in some areas of Menna Shuli, the roads can become completely covered in sand from blustering winds and sandstorms. It is recommended that personal driving is kept to urban roads, and any excursions in rural Menna Shuli are taken through official tour operators. Make sure to keep your driving license with you on the road and stay updated on Mennan road laws and regulations.

There is a chance that you might be asked to show identification by local authorities. Please ensure you keep all travel documents on your person.

The religion of 'unux‚ is commonly practised in Menna Shuli. The freedom of religion is enshrined in law, and you should face little discrimination except for rural conservatism.

There is a very accepting culture surrounding the LGBTQ+ community in Menna Shuli, through both extensive legislation and from historical normalisation and acceptance. However, this is not the case for transgenderism, which is heavily frowned upon, and it is highly likely you will face discrimination.

Menna Shuli is often used as a place for so-called 'sex tourism'. Please note that it is highly illegal to purchase or utilise the services of a brothel and to take recreational drugs. Being caught committing such offences can often end with much more severe sentencing than that of a Noronnican court of law.

Noronica and Menna Shuli have a unique connection due to the prehistorical migration of the Mennan people to areas including the Noronnican Isles. Both nations were involved in the various wars in Argus, with them sometimes opposing one another. However, Menna Shuli took a neutral stance during the First Imperial War, during which time, the two nations maintained an open trading relationship.

The State Executive views Menna Shuli as a stable trading partner, although its recent incursions into San Javier and its broadening acceptance of Mesder Treaty Sea Organisation nations are highly concerning.

Read dispatch

Currently, I have eleven nations noted down, but NationStates doesn't like the amount of data I'm putting in, so I am likely going to have to give each nation its own dispatch. This does give me a chance to write a lot more, however, so that is a good point.

This is very experimental, so I'd like to ask what people think?

Remember that I am just getting this info from the news and from your factbooks, (and some guesswork) so if I have got anything wrong please tell me! Also, if you want to help work on one of your pages, please do not hesitate to give me a shout via telegram!

Always setting the high standards, epic :)

Antiquity to Noronnican Colonization


Antiquity - 1000 AD: Vancouvia is uninhabited due to its freezing climate and rumors of ravenous beasts that occupy the interior of the island. No permanent settlements have been established although the southern waters have been periodically fished in for over a millennia. Its shores are very roughly mapped and some interior exploration has occurred, although most nation-states consider the Vancouvian islands to be cursed and useless. Vancouvia becomes a haven for abundant wildlife, including varying species of bears, deer, walrus, wolves, and cattle.

The Vancouvian Landscape

900: Archaeological data suggests the first seasonal hunting camps sprung up on Rochester Hook around this time, although these were temporary and vanished several years later.

1018: Sessux rebels from Noronica flee west in several damaged ships after a battle against King Aegen's forces. About a hundred men and women arrive on Petlan Isle (modern-day Independence Island) and begin a harsh existence, ultimately succumbing to the elements and their lack of supplies over the next twenty years, but not before introducing several mainland Argus-Gaelish animals to the ecosystem.

1072-1099: Nyssic King Edmund sends a series of exploration voyages to Vancouvia, which report back with a depiction of a land consisting of vast timber and hunting grounds. Edmund authorizes the first true permanent settlements on Vancouvia's southern shore. A new duchy, Vaenland, is created with claims over the entire island group. Roughly a thousand Nyssic settlers spread out over Vaenland, hunting the plentiful game.

It is a spirited land of mountains and ice, but also of untouched beauty and opportunity. The air is cold but manageable. We drink from the fast rivers and eat berries from the bushes freely. The wild beasts outnumber us greatly but do not dare approach. A fortune could be made, if only one were to seek it here.

-Translation of Nyssic Explorer's Journal, 1074

Isolated Growth


Trade with Foreign Lands Flourishes

1100-1400: A variety of valuable resources are discovered on Vaenland, including pearls, silver, and exotic furs which continues to drive immigration. Vaenland gradually begins to become a nation of its own: a local council government siphons off more and more authority away from Noronica (which is busy with its own internal conflicts), a Vaenland flag and army is formed, Christianity takes root, permanent towns and castles are built, and trade flourishes. A significant fishing village, Vaenhall (modern-day Fishhook), becomes the de facto capital.

1370 to 1400: Groups from Athara Magarat begin to arrive, many of them wanting to enroll in the Vaen Guard. These people bring with them numerous scientific technologies, including advances in astronomy, mathematics, shipbuilding, and most importantly: gunpowder. Quickly becoming the dominant minority group, they are nevertheless treated fairly well by the native Nyssic-Vaenlanders, who adopt a sort of reverence for their scientific expertise. Immigrants from Athara Magarat, most seeking asylum from the expanding Atnaia Empire, continue to arrive for the next 400 years in significant number.

1410: Vaenland becomes one of the first nations to adopt the use of gunpowder into its army. Home-crafted hand cannons called "firehorns" begin to be mass-produced and become the chief weapon of the central army, calling themselves the Vaen Guard. A tradition of firearms begins, with Vaenland almost completely abandoning the sword and bow.

They had among them great metal and wood pipes,
that would cause such a loud noise upon action that all men would take heed.
Lightning struck forth from one end, impaling any object
which had the misfortune of catching its hatred.
These are our new weapons, I declare, if we may tame them.

-Translation of Vaenland Council Report, 1411

1414-1418: Vaenland is virtually completely explored and mapped. Road construction begins in an effort to link the western and eastern coast (modern-day Quotavia to Angeles) with a well-maintained highway, which is eventually completed in 1435.

1460-1464: Several villages on the western coast rise up in arms against each other in the Wilderness Wars, primarily over rights to hunting grounds. The violence is quickly halted when the Guard arrives en masse and hangs leaders on both sides of the conflict. This marks the first time mass violence occurs on the island.

In the first instance in which most men could remember, brother and cousin struck blows against one another in heated fury and rage. Blood lined the shores and the women could not gather shells or tend the crops without fear. Bless our souls, God, for we may not be long for this world.

-Translation of historical account of the Wilderness Wars, published 1475

A Free Land, After Some Struggle


And nor shall Vaenland ever yet again be governed by a King or ruler of the same sort.
We pledge our lives to this call. We pledge our honor to this.
We pledge our future to this; Vaenland shall henceforth be a free land.

-Translation of a segment of the Free Land Accords, 1492

1492: King Henry the IV of Noronica dies and is succeeded by his infant son. The Vaenland Council issues the "Free Land Accords" which declare that Vaenland shall never again have a King or equivalent and shall be ruled in perpetuity by an elected oligarchy. This is a direct slight against Noronica, but is dismissed as merely hollow words from a distant, ceremonial duchy.

1497: The right to vote is extended to any working male who has lived on the island for more than five years. The meaning of what constitutes "working" proves highly contentious, although the issue is treated liberally after threats from the serf class.

The Wild Cow War

1530: In the highly infamous Wild Cow War, a 500 man strong elite detachment of the Vaen Guard marches north to dispatch the growing threat of unchecked wild cattle herds, which have prevented any permanent settlements on the northern half of the island due to their aggressive stampedes and great number. A battle outside modern-day Lexington ensues, which ends in disaster for the Vaen Guard when a massive stampede charges into the soldiers carelessly camped in an open field. Over half the detachment is killed or wounded, with the remaining men forced to retreat and leave the casualties on the battlefield. The battle shatters the Vaen Guard's reputation and public confidence wanes. The incident is captured in multiple mediums, including many paintings and ballads. Inspired by the debacle, the Council beings to recruit military experts from across the region to train the Vaen Guard in professional tactics. Ironically, the loss proves to be a blessing in disguise, as the Guard grows to be a highly trained and deadly force in the following decades.

1535-1550: The Vaen Guard manages to decimate the wild cattle population through the use of smarter tactics and upgraded muskets. The cattle are pushed back to the northern cliffs and remain only a serious threat on Petlan Isle, which has grown into a haven for thieves and pirates.

The menace is dead, at last. It has been years since the dust clouds have risen in the sky and the stomping of deranged hooves have reached my ears. I may now freely plant my barley among the prairies and keep my gun in storage. My wife and son rejoice, and I give thanks to my countrymen.

-Translation of farmer's journal, 1551

1552: Vaenland formally declares complete independence from Noronica during its civil war. Although lacking any sort of navy, the Vaenland Council is deeply optimistic that any reprisals will be halted by the Vaen Guard. No such action takes place, and Vaenland begins its course as an independent nation.

A Silver Age


The Vaen Guard Marches On

1550-1800: Vaenland centralizes its government and expands its hold on the islands. A unique silver coin, the cove, is minted and established as the official currency. An early postal system is created and proves successful. Public schoolhouses and early universities prop up and are staffed by talented scribe-professors. English explorers and missionaries bring their language to the island and it becomes the lingua franca. The Council expands to 40 members and establishes term limits. Vaenland becomes a major exporter of blubber and oils. A volunteer minuteman navy is established from existing trade vessels, although it lacks significant power projection or command structure.

1625-1675: Vaenland and Torom privateers conspire to exploit and harass Xrevaro-Linavian shipping lanes in the Argean sea for half a century. Although not specifically sanctioned by the Vaenland Council, many council members and other prominent citizens invest heavily in the pirate activity, reaping rewards that push Vaenland's standard of living to new heights. The Free Island, modern-day International District, becomes a haven for pirate crews, who occasionally scuffle between themselves. Piracy gradually dies down after several losses at sea, causing the Vaenland Council to shift its focus further to land-based power.

1700-1850: The Vaen Guard gains a reputation as a highly professional army for hire, and becomes one of the first modern armies to utilize hit-and-run tactics on a grand scale. Accustomed to cold climates and mountainous and forest terrain, the Guard proves to be an effective mercenary force in many skirmishes and wars across the region, including the Verdon War of the Stripes, Noronica conquest of ArvŠn, and other conflicts.

The crack of their rifles stopped their foes dead, time and time again.
Woe, to those who face the ancient riflemen!

-On the Vaen Guard's Conquests, Herman Manchester, 1775

1785-1810: The Vaen Guard serves as a mercenary force for Spain on the colony of Corindia for decades. In 1805, Corindia revolts. After years of attempting to quell the independence movement, the Vaen Guard abandons the colony when the Spanish no longer can maintain payment.

1786: A massive wildfire blazes across the inner corridor of the island, burning millions of acres of farms and timberland and killing over 3,000 residents.

1799: Growing demands for a Bill of Rights reach a boiling point when some 15,000 civilians march on Vaenhall. Local militia groups soon join civilians in an occupation of the capital. The Vaen Guard arrives in force a week later after a deployment on Petlan, exhausted and dangerously seeking a quick end to the revolt. Colonel Thomas Thantana manages to prevent any violence after a cool-headed speech reminding all of their status as fellow countrymen.

1800: Voters elect many populist candidates to the Council, including Colonel Thantana, which results in the speedy creation of a Declaration of the Rights of Men, granting several basic rights to Vaenlanders.

All those acting against the Council shall be hanged.

-The curt Council Declaration Against the Knights of Order, October 1827

1802: The Vaen Guard aids Noronica in the quelling of native peoples on The Black Isles and in turn is rewarded with the western half of the island group. The islands go on to serve as an agricultural base as well as a vacation destination.

1820-1830: A group calling themselves the Knights of Order gains traction, calling for a President to govern Vaenland and more checks and balances to be installed against the Council. The Council quickly declares them a treasonous organization and leaders of the group are executed without trial. The group loses appeal and falls into obscurity.

1841: Slavery is officially abolished, a largely ceremonial move, as slavery had never taken hold in Vaenland and serfdom and involuntary servitude were largely expunged by the turn of the century.

The New Dark Age


Ghost Track Remnants

1850-1900: Vaenland begins a downward spiral referred to as the New Dark Age. Corruption plagues the Council and a period of stagnation exists. Multiple petty squabbles threaten to destroy the Council, while at the same time votes become publicly for sale for the same price as the annual "citizen tax": a concept ironically known as Equal Footing, which essentially works as a poll tax to force the poor to vote in the same officials year after year. Unemployment becomes a major issue as crowds of the unemployed join and form gangs to rule various cities. Prostitution, gambling, alcoholism, and crime abound. The Vaen Guard begins to negotiate with various gangs out of desperation, and the country is split into multiple factions vying for shreds of power.

1870-1872: A battle over the Swift Bay region escalates into a full-scale civil war. The Vaen Guard suffers a series of initial defeats against rival gangs, but eventually gains the upper hand when a propaganda campaign swells their numbers. The naval branch of the Guard infamously opens fire on an enemy force occupying Port Thomas, destroying much of the city and inflicting hundreds of civilian casualties.

1885-1890: The construction of a national railroad system never materializes when the Inner Argean Company files for bankruptcy after a massive embezzling scheme by the company's executive officers. Some unused "ghost tracks" are laid but later are recovered by local gangs and sold for scrap.

1890: The Vaen Guard enters into a series of contracts with Verdon to help police its territories in the Eterna Sea.

1893-1895: Several mercenary regiments of the Vaen Guard participate in the First Ostehaar War on the Verdonian side, wherein they commit many atrocities against the Oster people, horrifying Vaenlanders when this is discovered later. The Council and Guard both vow to never again permit such action.

Members of the Blackcoat Gang Pose for a Photograph

It is perhaps not the acts themselves that shock us most, but the fact that our own committed them. Yes, war is hell, but it need not be hell inflicted by Vaenlanders onto others. Let us use the rifle well, but let us first use it wisely. Let us spring forward over the breach with a song of purpose in our hearts, and let us not fall into the grips of unkempt malice nor revenge. This is our duty, not as soldiers, but as members of humanity.

-Harold Briarwhite, October 1899

A Dark Turn of the Century


Chemical Weapons Factory in Greenview

1900-1924: The Vaen Guard begins to almost exclusively operate in Verdonian held territories in the Eterna Sea, with many regions undergoing fierce revolts and rebellions in what comes to be known as the Frontier Wars. Many soldiers become increasingly disillusioned with their role as mercenaries.

1915: Vaenland controversially begins the production of chemical gases for usage in warfare and sells them to the highest bidders.

1925-1927: The Second Oster War occurs. Vaenlanders, now deeply sympathetic for the Oster cause, betray their Verdonian contracts and join Ostehaar in the war to take back their country, with many regiments fighting on the front line and ironically subjected to their own chemical weapons sold to Verdon just years prior. While it results in an Oster victory, Vaenlanders are increasingly disinterested in foreign affairs.

1927-1930: The Vaen Guard, now with a diminished reputation, struggles to maintain its relevance as a mercenary force in the modern age. A large percentage of the Guard is laid off in the "Dead Summer" of 1928 amidst a budget crisis, and the remainder returns home to a still-fractured nation.

1930-1939: The country collapses as the Great Depression collides with internal strife. Unemployment rises to some of the highest levels in the entire region. Entire towns are abandoned, many people devolve back to the subsistence hunting of their ancestors, and the cove loses all value on the international market. The Council, deeply rotted for decades by corruption, declares martial law and hires allied gangs to fight against their rivals. A massive exodus occurs, with millions of Vaenlanders moving to Argus, Gael, and the Four Passages.

The Destruction of Vaenhall

1941: Two successive hurricanes wipe out Vaenhall, the final nail in the coffin. The Council officially disbands and the Vaen Guard becomes an army with no home. The country turns into a wasteland and refuge of undesirables. Vaenland is effectively defunct, with about a million citizens remaining in relative squalor under a dangerous anarchy.

1941-1947: Remnants of the Vaen Guard, now effectively a volunteer militia, keeps some order in major cities, but is constantly overwhelmed with requests for aid.

Codman: A Shadow of a Former Nation


Yorkford, 1955

1948: Vaenlanders shed their former name and declare themselves Codmaners, a loose attempt to rebrand as a modern fishing nation, although no real government system exists. The population stalls at around 600,000, made up of mostly fishermen and other supplemental industries.

1950-1970: Codman stabilizes and finally recovers from its depression, yielding a relatively prosperous fishing industry. Codmaners flirt with communism but ultimately it fails to gain popularity. Immigrants from America, Canada, Scandinavia, Japan, Korea, Ostehaar, Xrevaro, Noronica, and Athara Magarat soon outnumber Vaenlander descendants. Unspoken mores and customs drive a sense of community harmony.

1977-1984: Incursions by Xrevaro fishing vessels into Codman waters lead to escalated tensions, with Codmanners petitioning Ostehaar to intervene. Multiple Oster ships are sunk, leading to the Oster-Xrevaro war, wherein Oster and Codman forces eventually push back the Xrevaran aggressors.

The Nuclear Rush & The Codman Republic


Uranium Mine Near Syracuse

June 1984: Vast and extensive uranium deposits are discovered on the northern coastline. Almost overnight, many investors and foreign nations become interested in staking a claim in Codman, a previously overlooked frigid island.

July-August 1984: Codman residents, finding it necessary to now form some sort of government to deal with this "Nuclear Rush," send leaders to meet in the small town of Fishhook (previously Vaenhall) for several weeks. Discussions frequently stall due to various Codmaners still seeing themselves as citizens of their old countries, but gradually a national identity arises as each faction realizes they cannot gain a sufficient majority to act solely on behalf of their own nation's interests.

August 16, 1984: A wide majority of the delegation agrees to The Codman Declarations, a loose document setting out a provisional republic which would decide upon major matters and conflicts. However, the most significant clause in the document expresses that although immigrants from all nations would continue to be welcome in Codman, "No foreign government, nor military, nor foreign faction, shall have its wills or wants carried out on Codman, through force or other effort, or they shall be met with equal force." The "Equal Force" clause, as it came to be known, was in response to growing fears that Codman would be invaded or otherwise claimed by another nation. It was, however, not an idle threat: a large majority of Codmaners were proficient with firearms and were very willing to defend their island. Although the Declarations were somewhat weak and vague, they were considered the first firm step towards a new national identity.

Codman is and shall be a free and self-governing Republic, welcoming of all peoples regardless of color, creed, or heritage. No foreign government, nor military, nor foreign faction, shall have its wills or wants carried out on Codman, through force or other effort, or they shall be met with equal force. The Republic shall have the full and final authority over the free lands upon which it has been rightly established ... We pledge our future to this; Codman shall henceforth be a free land.

-The Codman Declarations, 1984

Wind Energy Farm on the Northern Coast

1984-1990: Businesses enter Codman en masse, an effect the Codmaners had predicted and wanted to bring about. Within a few months, thousands of prospective miners, businessmen, engineers, and logistics personnel had capitalized on the newly discovered deposits. Soldotna World Energy, headquartered in Vancouver, Washington quickly becomes the chief processor and exporter of uranium, bringing with them many American and Canadian employees who begin to dominate the island's affairs and culture.

1990-2000: The influx of emigrants soon turns into millions as mineral deposits, oil, and vast lumber reserves are also discovered on the island. Secondary and tertiary industries develop rapidly, with many foreign investors deeply optimistic of the island's future prospects. The Codman Republic exponentially grows, but soon finds itself starving for law, order, and a common purpose.

Vancouvia: A Free Land for All


Grand Vancouvian Rail

March-July 2000: Leaders again join for a convention, this time in Vesuvius on the west coast, the de facto capital and center of commerce. Throughout the spring and summer, they discuss a new form of government, leading to the July 5th signing of a Constitution with a republican system of government, with ethical and intelligence requirements for running for Congress. The country's name is changed to Vancouvia, a reference to both the many Vancouverites who had emigrated to the island and quickly accelerated it onto the regional stage and the historical Vaenland nation. A new motto, flag, anthem, and military are formed. Charles Rochester, an active and well-respected central figure of the Codman Republic, is chosen to serve as Temporary President until four Senators can be elected, eventually stepping down in June, 2001. Finally, Vancouvia is a full-fledged nation.

November 1, 2000: The Vancouvian Special Forces is formed to serve as the spear of the Vancouvian military but quickly grows to be the main force of Vancouvian power projection.

December 25, 2000: The Vancouvian Espionage Organization is formed but suffers debacle after debacle, eventually becoming the intelligence branch of the military.

2000-2010: Vancouvia's regional influence grows dramatically. With substantial income from new, thriving industries, the Vancouvian Congress makes several purchases of military equipment, lowers corporate restrictions (which results in the foundation of numerous additional regional industries in Vancouvia), subsidizes research into green energy, and installs a massive multi-billion cove high-speed railway system. Old and abandoned cities are renamed and new cities are founded. The Lexington area cattle-basin becomes Vancouvia's meat and bread basket. The Vancouvian economy begins a shift towards service-based industries, with an emphasis on business services, information technology, and accounting.

Vancouvian Special Forces on Patrol in the I.D.

May 2015: A Vancouvian-led coalition invades Bhumidol in the Bhumidol Conflict in an effort to curb systematic human rights abuses. The Vancouvian Special Forces are deployed in their first major action, and prove to be highly effective in guerilla operations. Bhumidol capitulates after threats from the coalition navies, but neglects to significantly improve its human rights throughout the next few years.

October - December 2015: Vancouvia constructs the Camp Plymouth airbase on the International District's southeastern coast. What starts as a minor crackdown on criminal elements operating freely in the non-governed island spirals into a full blown occupation when Vancouvia temporarily absorbs the I.D. on September 4th. Soldiers from Miklania, Ostehaar, and Kamieniec podolski join Vancouvia in an occupation of the central City. Hundreds of Vancouvian soldiers become casualties in an increasingly bloody fight against resisting criminal groups. In late 2015, the occupation winds down and Vancouvia transfers control of the island over to a native Island Guard, also helping install a Council to govern the island as its own nation. Vancouvian troops stationed at Plymouth remain and help aid in the defense of the island.

January 2016: Vancouvia joins with Atnaia, Verdon, Ostehaar, Polar Svalbard, Keomora, Norstham, and Noronica in the Coalition of Free Nations.

November 2016 - Present: Vancouvia is thrust into a civil war conflict in San Javier when troops from various nations including Atnaia flock to the island. A Vancouvian rail company, working to build La Nueva Paz railroad since the early 2000s, comes under threat of attack and is supplemented by a team of engineers and a small escort group.

December 2016 - Present: Vancouvia unites with Noronica in the recapture of the ArvŠn peninsula but greatly underestimates the defending force and is subject to extraordinary casualties in a blunderous aerial invasion of Alimenter. Although Noronica regains control of the peninsula, Vancouvian troops remain and assist in the occupation.

July 5th, 2013 in Vesuvius

Vancouvia, Vancouvia, go bold and true
Your windward eyes set upon the blue
Your skies are clear, your heart is pure
Your shimmering seas are our hearts' allure

Vancouvia, Vancouvia, a land of bliss
Your towering pines break through the mist
Your sandy shores bring forth the dawn
Your valleys' echoes are our song

-Our Land, Vancouvian National Anthem

Are those births/deaths or the periods of their kingship (there is a word for that but for the love of the world I can't remember it right now..)? In case of kings I'd add both for clarity.

It's birth and death, by law the crown rules until death.

Yay, more pretenders to the Heavenly Throne of the Yellow Dragon.

I will be honest here; the return of the Mahangs is one possible future storyline.

As you may have noticed, the region AEGIS Alliance is deconstructing embassies with this region. This is because it has been invaded by the inter-regional organisation known as 'The Legion', and will be used as a springboard for future invasion attempts. I am a representative from this organisation, notifying you of this. We feel the need to tell you this, as you are an alive and active region that it may be of interest to.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused you or your region.
