If you have any suggestions/criticism for my factbook, please send me a telegram instead of posting on this thread.
If you think this has even a close resemblance to the real-world situation of Myanmar, you must know nothing about my home country.

History of Myanmar (Under heavy revision)

Postby The Union of Myanmar » Sun Aug 28, 2011 9:52 am

History

Early History
What started as the Myan tribe the island Ko Ko became a kingdom by the 500s. As an island nation, the Myan dynasty built an advanced navy with ships made of iron and equipped with cannons. The Kingdom of Myan attacked the Kingdom of Pakwan on Pakwan island in 578. King Shwe Minn of Myan assumed the throne in 583 after assassinating his older brother Shwe Hmon. Minn made himself Emperor and renamed his two island nation territories the Empire of Myan. All that was left was to conquer the behemoth mainland-nation Mar. A military invasion was impossible; Emperor Shwe Minn used deception, manipulation and assassinations to win the trust of Marian officials. But Emperor Minn passed away before he could see his plans carried out. His feeble son Ko Minn became Emperor, but was in turn manipulated by officials from Mar. The Queen of Mar soon learned of the Myanian plot against her, and ordered the invasion of the Myan Empire and the execution of Myan-supporters.

The war between the two nations waged for centuries. Most battles were fought on the seas. Millions of young men and women lost their lives serving their nations. Many Kings, Queens, Emperors and Empresses ascended and descended their thrones as the two nations were perpetually locked in war. Each side feared suggesting a truce due to the backwards political thinking of the early ages. Both sides were evenly matched, until two foreign powers would put an end to the bloody conflict...

Severanian-Embossian Colonial Era
(1782 - 1966)

Two western powers known as Severania and New Embossia stumbled upon the Myan and Mar nations that were still at war (which by now had become part of each nation's normal lifestyle at this point). Seeing the vulnerability and using the tension between the two primitive nations, the advanced Severania and New Embossia jointly invaded both the Myan and Mar nations swiftly and with ease. The colonists Severania and New Embossia decided to equally share resources from the island and mainland nations. The colonists forced both nations to unify and renamed their colony Myanmar.

Over the decades, the people of Myan and Mar accepted and embraced their mixed culture and that of their colonists.

People's Union of Myanmar (1966-1989)
Image

Upon independence from


Democratic People's Republic of The Union of Myanmar.
(April 1992 - ON)
Image

For nearly a decade, the nation experienced healthy democratic growth; politics was still dominated by socialist ideologies.

The nation fell once again under military rule from 2001 to 2008, when military officers in support of the Myanmar Socialist Union placed the nation under the control of the Communist Catalyst Committee (CCC). The nation's name became the People's Union of Myanmar; this was the only significant change that affected the lives of citizens. A single-party rule by the MSU was borne out of necessity as it did not give the military-created CCC approval to carry out a coup d'etat. Many politicians were replaced, including the President at the time, in favor of communists. When the CCC's extreme communist policies were about to bring about long-term harm to Myanmar, the MSU dissolved the CCC and imprisoned most of the committee's military cabinet. By 2008, the government had reverted back to a multi-party parliamentary system.

The "new" nation has been involved in two major wars: the Acciw-Annarkussic Island conflict and the Quavvian War; both of which it won.

October 1, 2011 marked Parliament's decision to dissociate the nation from Global Powers. The decision was not made lightly, although it was influenced by General Si Ma Sheng and his uneasy diplomatic relationship with certain regional officers. By October 5, Foreign Minister Htein Wynn officially declared Myanmar to be a part of The Black Knights. However, President Yuzana Aye has clearly noted that the nation may associate itself with Global Powers "once the regional government has made certain specific changes." She has not explained what these "specific changes" are. It was decided on November 3, 2011 to not return to Global Powers. President Aye stated that it would 'be better for our nation to start anew'.

The nation is currently hoping to be a part of the Polaris Initiative.

National Officials

Postby The Union of Myanmar » Sun Aug 28, 2011 11:15 am

President: Yuzana Aye - USDP
Image
Yuzana Aye is member of the Union Solidarity & Development Party (USDP), and the 8th Prime Minister of Myanmar following the 2010 general election. Yuzana Aye is Myanmar's first female Prime Minister and at 44 is the youngest Prime Minister of Myanmar in over 60 years.

Born in Mandalay, Yuzana Aye earned a bachelor's degree from Sephyroht University and master's degree from the University of Yuuna, both in public administration. She became an executive in the businesses founded by her elder brother, Kyaw Aye, and later became the president of property developer NU Inc. and managing director of Myanmar Air Systems. Meanwhile, her brother Kyaw Aye became Prime Minister, was overthrown in the 2001 military coup, and went into self-imposed exile after a military-appointed tribunal convicted him of abuse of power.

In October 2010, the USDP, which maintained close ties to Kyaw Aye, nominated Yuzana Aye as their candidate for President in the 2010 general election. She campaigned on a platform of national reconciliation, poverty eradication, and corporate income tax increase, but the ruling Myanmar Socialist Union Party claimed that she would act in the interests of her exiled brother. The USDP won a landslide victory, winning more than half the seats in the People's Council. It was only the second time in Myanmari political history that a single party won a parliamentary majority.


Prime Minister: Alfred Wynn - MSU
Image
Alfred Wynn is the current Paramount Leader of the Democratic People's Republic of The Union of Myanmar. He has held the titles of Chairman of the Myanmari Socialist Union since 2005, succeeding U Ba Hein as the leader of the Myanmari Socialist Union.

Wynn has been involved in the Communist party bureaucracy for most of his adult life, notably as Party secretary for Tanintharyi and the Agricultural Sector, and then later first Secretary of the MSU Secretariat and Vice-President under former political leader Si Ma Sheng. Wynn is the first leader of the Myanmari Socialist Union who was born after the Sovereign Revolution. As such, his rise to the presidency represented Myanmar's transition of leadership from establishment communists to younger, more pragmatic technocrats.

During his term in office, Wynn reintroduced state control in some sectors of the economy that were relaxed by the previous administration, and has been conservative with political reforms. Along with his colleague, President Yuzana Aye, Wynn presided over nearly a decade of consistent economic growth and development that cemented Myanmar as a rising world power. He sought to improve socio-economic equality domestically through the Moral Standards Program, which aimed to build a "Harmonious Society" that was prosperous and free of social conflict. Meanwhile, Wynn opened up Myanmar's political arena, allowing all political parties to participate in elections. In foreign policy, Wynn advocated for "Myanmar's neutral navigation", pursuing soft power in international relations and a business-oriented approach to diplomacy. Through Wynn's tenure, Myanmar's influence in Hahklallah, Zonolia, and other nations has increased.


Commander-in-Chief of the UMAF: General Si Ma Sheng - MAF
Image
Si Ma Sheng has been a rising officer in the military, having led operations against the insurgent group, the Red Nagas, in the Economic Sector.

Si Ma Sheng was from Intake 19 of the Defence Services Academy, and went on to command a Light Infantry Brigade in Myan Island. In 2002 he as promoted to commander of the Pakwan Military Command, and six years later became Bureau of Special Operations-2 (BSO-2). In this position he commanded the assault on the Red Nagas, commandeering operations which were criticized for alleged widespread looting in the siege of Sihn.

Until 2011 he held the position of Chief of Bureau of Special Operations – 2, and has been a key plank in the now-dissolved Communist Catalyst Committee's (CCC) persistent conflicts with eastern rebels, where he was involved in negotiations. He is currently one of the most influential figures in the Union of Myanmar Armed Forces (UMAF).

Despite his first-hand involvement with the former military regime from 2001 to 2008, his military expertise granted him the position of Commander-in-Chief. He is ethnically Marian.

Foreign Minister: Dr. Sein Win, PhD - MSU
Image
Sein Win is the current Foreign Minister as of 2011. He belongs to the Myanmari Socialist Union and is a member of Parliament. A native of Sephyroht and graduate of Yuuna University, he was later accepted into the prestigious Kas Institute of Government and Management, an institution founded by his grandfather Htein Win which grooms future civic leaders of Myanmar. Win was elected to Parliament for the first time in 1993 after serving in the city council of Sephyroht for three terms. In September 2011 he was chosen as Minister of Foreign Affairs in the cabinet of newly-appointed Prime Minister Alfred Wynn.

Military - Union of Myanmar Armed Forces (UMAF)

Postby The Union of Myanmar » Mon Sep 05, 2011 11:46 pm

Non-commissioned Officers
Non-Commissioned Officers are referred to as Saya, meaning Teacher, by both enlisted men and officers. For example, Sergeant Majors, Master Sergeants and Staff Sergeants are referred to as Sayagyi, literally meaning "Old Teacher", Sergeants are referred to as Saya and Corporal/Lance Corporal as Sayalay. These unofficial ranks are used throughout the daily life of all branches. Non-Commissioned Officers (NCO) within the Myanmar Armed Forces are usually seasoned veteran soldiers. Thus both Officers and enlisted men refer to them as "teacher" out of respect.

Aside from marine vehicles for navy combat personnel, the UMAF provides tremendous support to the UMAF Army with an enormous fleet of troop transports.

UMAF Air Force (Navy sub-branch)
Image
As the UMAF is a mainly defensive military force, the Air Force is the least developed. The Air Force is often considered a sub-branch of the Navy which handles anti-aircraft defense missions. Most aircraft in the Union of Myanmar Armed Forces Air Force were built in the early 2000s and, although up-to-date, have rarely seen any real combat.



UMAF-produced Weapons
In an effort to become a self-sustaining military independent of foreign influence, the UMAF uses the following weapons in warfare.

TAT-48M
Image
Type: High-Power Machine Gun
Rate of fire: 750–1,000 rounds per minute
Muzzle Velocity: 915 m/s (3,000 ft/s)
Effective Range: 1,000 yd (910 m)
Length: 1,041 mm (41 in)
Weight: 7.5 kg (17 lb) empty, 10 kg (22 lb) loaded
Description: A relatively small & light gun that packs the power of a heavy machine gun, the TAT-48M is used in tight situations providing both mobility and strong damage.

TAT-88J
Image
Type: Standard-issue Rifle
Rate of fire: 12-15 rounds/min sustained, 45-60 rounds/min semi-automatic, & 700–950 rounds/min cyclic
Muzzle Velocity: 3,110 ft/s (948 m/s)
Effective Range: 550 Meters (point target), 800 Meters (area target)
Length: 39.625 in (1,010 mm)
Weight: 7.8 lb (3.5 kg) (unloaded), 8.79 lb (4.0 kg) (loaded)
Description: The standard rifle used in the UMAF, the TAT-88J is best used in jungle environments and guerilla warfare, although it has also been proven to be extremely effective in urban combat. It is equipped with a bayonet which greatly increases usefulness in point-blank combat to conserve ammunition.

National Football Team

Postby The Union of Myanmar » Fri Jan 06, 2012 12:05 pm

Myanmaris have always been fond of football (soccer) after it was introduced by former-colonists Severania and New Embossia. After independence in 1966, the Myanmar National Football Associatio (MNFF) was formed to promote and enhance football games throughout the nation. For decades, Myanmar only had experience with domestic football games; the healthy competition produced all-round players who were skilled enough to go onto the international tournaments. After the Myanmar Socialist Union Party loosened its grip on the political atmosphere in 2009, foreign policy radically changed and allowed for more foreign involvement. The Myanmar National Football Association took the opportunity to bring together the best football players Myanmar had to offer.

The Myanmar National Football Federation carefully put together Myanmar's first national football team which began its international tour by competing in the 39th Baptism of Fire. Although new to foreign teams, the Myanmar National Football Team rose to win the silver medal. The MNFF decided to put competing in international tournaments on hold to train the team. After nearly two years of training and hard work, the Myanmar National Football Team is now ready to sign up for the 59th World Cup.
