The Emirate of Tarmeca World Factbook



History

Before the 13th century, Tarmeca was divided into four warring groups, the Tarmecs, the Cymeans, the Orrens, and the Sounsi. in 1273 AD, the Tarmecs, under King Ermos Sosaro II, succeeded in conquering and uniting the four peoples. This peace lasted until an Orric prince had King Alos Sosaro IV assassinated in 1422. The region fell into turmoil once again, and the Century War was fought. The war ended with the signing of the Gulf Treaty in 1539, which established a governing council of three emirs from Tarm, Cymea, and Souns. The Orrens were excluded from the treaty and became subjects of the Cymean Emirate through the treaty. Although riddled with corruption, the council kept peace within Tarmeca for many years. Meanwhile, Tarmeca established close links with Japan and Eastern Russia. In 1703, Korea warships were sighted, and the Red Ocean War began. With the help of the Japanese, the Tarmecan forces were able to push back the Korean attack, and the war ended with no territorial gains on either side in 1717. In 1850, the Orren people petitioned the council of emirs for a seat on the council. In a vote 2-1, the Orrens were accepted into the council. In 1861 work began on the Canal, which connected the Gulf of Tarmeca to the Ocean through the isthmus connecting Souns and Cymea. Territorial claim to the Canal is very controversial, as both Souns and Cymea want the profit generated by the Canal. The issue is still present today, and the tension has resulted in several bloody conflicts over the last 150 years. The issue cannot be solved in the council, as Orr sides with Cymea while Tarm sides with Souns. This issue is one of the few that cannot be resolved by the council, although the even number of four has caused problems in the past.
