Your National History!

Postby Lemnos and Agios-Efstratios » Thu Feb 04, 2016 7:24 am

State your Nationstate's history - Not all of it, just a portion of it.

Example being, wars, great people, growth, people, culture, buildings, ancient history, whatever you want to tell, et cetera.

My example.
"The first ever known history of the Aegeans dated back to 255 B.C.E and begins with the Nomadic people of Greece constituting a small trading port city on the island of Lemnos or Lemonia, that traded clay goods and glassware with the nearby Greeks and Romans.

The Mediterranean Kingdom of Lemonia first came known in the year 122 B.C.E when a Nomadic King, King Aegean Agulma, conquered the small trading port city and sought to build a Kingdom. Many War with the Romans, Greeks, and nearby Aegeans came and pasted, but Agulma's kingdom stood the test of time. He conquered the Isles of Byzantium (Aegean islands), casting both the Greeks and Romans from them in 113 B.C.E.

After the dust had settled the King sought to form a Grand Kingdom that would be later called Agulma (Old Lemnosian for Aegean). He took the islands of Lemnos, Agios-Efstratios, Samothrace, Samos, Icaria, Patmos, Samos, Karpathos, Tinos, Andros, Sporade, Thasos, Imbros, Tenedos along with many, many more, for his people. He built his great Capital city of Myr which means "Home" in Old Aegean (That would become Myrina later or "Home to all") on his main island Limnos or Lemnos. He later renamed himself Lord of the Aegeans for he had united the Aegean islands under his banner, the Green, white and Gold.

Although his Kingdom would crumble under the weight of the war from the Romans, Greeks and local unrest and would later became part of the Eastern Roman Empire then later Greece.

The Kingdom was disbanded.. until recent times."



I love reading about fiction NationState history, if you'll indulge me.

Circa 5 b.c. settlers from The Outer Islands (now The Kingdom of The Crimson Rosella Isles) of what is now known as Chadtonia claimed to be princes or relatives of princes from various tribes from various nearby countries [to Chadtonia] under a peace treaty. These peoples are often referred to the as "the first Chadtonians."

110 A.D. to about 820 A.D. {Many Battles and Wars between the Princely Nations occured during this period of slightly over 700 years.}

120 A.D. The Prince Lehi the Wandering and Prince Abuhu Conflict was one such battle of primary importance due to the relegation of land allotments for provincial ownership by the various tribes.

1102 - 1122 A.D. The Reign of Emperor Chad The First (ruled 1102 A.D.- July 10 1122 A.D.)
Emperor Chad The First is the most revered individual in Chadtonia's history due to his successful ability to unify the tribes and create the first established government for the various tribes. He is the first and only Emperor to have been elected by a unanimous vote.

1122 A.D. - 1192 A.D. The Reign of Emperor Chad The Second. (ruled July 18, 1122 A.D. - August 3, 1192 A.D.;b. January 15, 1103, d. August 3 1192 A.D. )

1192 - 1235 His Exalted Emperor Ryan The First (ruled Aug. 4, 1192 A.D.- Oct. 30, 1235) A.D.

His Exalted Emperor Ryan The First (aka King Ryan I.) was the first Emperor to implement Imperial schools in the Empire. Under His Exalted Emperor Ryan The First according to his Royal Empirical Decree of Chadtonian Education, each province was to have a minimum of two schools: at least one in the capital city of the Province, and at least one in a neighboring city, village or town.

1276-1289 A.D. Emperor Blue Bird Two Feather One Sky (Ruled 1276-1289 A.D.) was demoted by the Empirical Council of the Empire for flatulence to the ranking of High Commanding General. He is the only Emperor in Chadtonia's History to have ever been demoted by a governing council for any reason. Emperor Blue Bird Two Feather One Sky is also responsible for building six of Chadtonia's great concert halls. {Perhaps he can be best remembered for his love of sound.}

1820-1836 A.D. The Great Warrior War

1836-1838 A.D. The Great Plague of Lehi The Wandering

1839 A.D. Assassination of King Ryan IX.

1837-1860 A.D. The Civil and Imperial War

1861-1873 Decade of Peace (a misnomer the Period of Peace was approximately 12 years and it wasn't entirely peaceful.)

Aug.3,1874 Discovery of the Rise Stone. The Rise Stone helped Historians uncover the code to deciphering the Historical Chadtonian Language.

1984 The discovery of The Great Royal Codex. This discovery allowed historians to uncover information about the Emperors from 1201 A.D. to 1405 A.D. filling in a large gap in Chadtonia's historical record.

Jan, 1. 2000 The election of the first president of the United Provinces of Chadtonia, President Alan Rudolph Schmidt. Official Titles: Empirical President, President of the United Provinces of Chadtonia, President of the Supreme Federation of Chadtonia, President Alan Rudolph Schmidt (served 2000-2013 A.D.)

President Alan Rudolph Schmidt is the last official of the Chadtonian government to have direct biological relationship to an Emperor. He is also the only Empirical President to have been elected by a populace vote. His presidency marked both the beginning and the ending of an Empirical President. He is the first, and only, President to have been an Empirical President. He is also the first and only President to have held the presidency under the previous Parliamentary system of The United Provinces of Chadtonia government.

Aug. 10, 2013 The election of the second president and youngest of The Supreme Federation of Chadtonia, President Clayton Deylanna.
Clayton Deylana was both the second President of the Supreme Federation of Chadtonia and the Cheyaffa of the Tikinua Province, which is the province that seats the capitol city The Great Royal City of Chadtonia. He was, as of 2014, the youngest President to be elected as President, elected at fifteen years of age in 2013 A.D. although historically there have been three (3) Emperors younger than Clayton. He was also the first president to hold two elected positions simultaneously. President Clayton Deylana's campaign heavily relied on expunging Empirical Law, however, shortly after Clayton was elected he foresaw an area in which a president could use an Empirical law to his or her advantage: the particular issue dealt with the President's right to impose certain laws. President Clayton Deylana took advantage of those specific-to-context laws to help him impose the law that a President may be exempt from all taxation while in office. President Clayton Deylana later stated that he was no longer concerned with the abolishment of all Empirical Laws, but wanted to maintain his focus on reforming or abolishing Empirical Laws related to civil rights, education, and occupation. Prior to being able to make these changes, President Clayton Deylana was found deceased in his bed with no bruises or stab-wounds at 7:00p.m. Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014 A.D., Chadtonian Standard Time. Although, the Minister of Defense, Coco The Clown stated "The President will surely be missed by all of us, and we greatly send our prayer to Sky God that the president be held in Realm of Peace forever.", The Federal Council did not quickly make any statements or comments on the death of President Clayton Deylana. The Chadtonian Federal Investigation Agency immediately announced plans to investigate whether or not this was an assassination via poison or drugs. On June, 28, 2015 the Federal Council officially halted all investigations into President Clayton Deylana's death indefinitely.Dec. 2. 2014 The Death of President Clayton Deylanna.

A declassified document reveals that Clayton was premeditatively murdered via an unspecified drug by a former military general hired by the Department of Diplomatic Endeavors for Chadtonia to act as Clayton's personal physician under the authority of the Minister of Defense, Coco the Clown. Further declassified documents reveal that the current President, Vice President at the time, President Albert Greenbuckle was the person who ordered and initiated this murderous act. In spite of this declassified information, President Albert Greenbuckle remain in office and has never been charged of any criminal activity.

Dec. 2. 2014 - Dec.7, 2014.Vice President Alan Greenbuckle served as President-in-effect. (Former President-In-Effect, Alan Greenbuckle is the first and only to date person who has served as Vice President for all three Presidents of Chadtonia, and thus far the first Vice President to hold the position of President-In-Effect.). He is also the only remaining elected official to have served in the previous Parliament under the last Emperor of Chadtonia. Additionally, as stated above, declassified documents reveal President Albert Greenbuckles involvement in the murder of President Clayton Deylanna. In spite of this revelation, President Albert Greenbuckle has not been charged of any crime and remains President of Chadtonia.

The History of Cavalar

Postby Cavalar » Thu Feb 04, 2016 2:28 pm

Before the Cavalarian Era: The history of Cavalar begins when the ancestral homeland, the Cavalar Islands were invaded by the Bronzemen, a people from across the ocean, famed for their bronze weapons. Boarding their famed eagle ships, the Cavalarians would arrive on the western shores of Bethelvara, sailing down the River Down and founding the city of Benevara. The Cavalarians would enter in conflict with the natives of the region, and for one hundred years, Bethelvara was at war.

1 CE - 50 CE: The wars ended with the founding of the First Cavalarian Kingdom, and beginning the Cavalarian Era (CE). However, the First Kingdom only fifty years and in 50 CE, the nation collapsed and the First Interim Period began.

50 CE - 133 CE: First Interim Period: Cavalar splits into three warring kingdoms, each with the goal of unifying the country once again, but none of them succeed to do so. The warring kingdoms come together after marriage alliances and form the Second Kingdom.

133 CE - 366 CE: The Second Kingdom becomes the dominant power in Bethelvara, but is destabilized by the Hundred Days' Plague. The Second Kingdom ends with the Drothmeri Invasion. Cavalar comes under control of the Drothmeri Empire.

366 CE - 491 CE: The Second Interim Period. In 367 CE, the city of Pellendale is founded. The Second Interim period is divided into two periods; the Drothmeri hegemony and the War for Independence.

491 CE - 991 CE: The Third Kingdom, called the most violent period in Cavalarian history. Despite being maarked by revolutions, civil wars, pandemic and famine, the Third Kingdom also saw major technological development and economic growth.

991 CE - 1000 CE: The Third Interim Period, which saw the greatest civil war that the country ever saw. An increase in religious fervor sparks the Dove Revolution, which succeeds in its goal of toppling the government, which was seen as corrupt and depraved. The Theocracy of Cavalar is formed, ruled by the religious leaders of the country.

1000 CE - 1298 CE: The Fourth Kingdom. Cavalar sees a continuous growth in its economy, and the nation is modernized by the theocratic regime, which also oppresses the citizens of the country. Great social inequality ensues as more than 95% of the country lives in mass poverty.

1298 CE - 1305 CE: The Summer Revolution topples the theocratic regime. The Fifth Kingdom is founded.

1305 CE - 1649 CE: The Fifth Kingdom of Cavalar. The country experiences another period of growth and development and changes its economic model to a state planned. Democratic socialism rises in the country. Cavalar forms its Commonwealth in the region of Bethelvara and Sacred Arsotheas.

1649 CE - 1770 CE: The Sixth Kingdom, the only one of the Cavalarian kingdoms that did not see a war in its history. The Sixth Kingdom ended when the last king of the House of Valenmar, the ruling family during the Sixth Kingdom, died without a proper heir. Before death, however, this king chose Jeannot Marchand, of the House of Marchand, to inherit the throne.

1770 CE: Jeannot Marchand, the Lord of Pellendale, comes into the throne of Cavalar and declares the Great Kingdom formed. The House of Marchand is declared the Royal Family for the rest of Cavalar's existence. The country becomes a constitutional monarchy.

1832 CE - 1839 CE: The Great War is fought in Sacred Arsotheas, severely weakening the economies of its countries. It became the deadliest war in the history of Cavalar, with 45 million dead in Cavalar alone. After the end of the war, Cavalar's Commonwealth fractures, and the Harmony United League is formed with the goal of preventing another with the magnitude of the Great War.
United Kingdom of Cavalar (Koninrich van Kavalar)
Here rises the United Kingdom. The name is mostly to make us feel better about ourselves.
We stand for: Democratic socialism, environmentalism, free education, free speech, humanism, freedom of religion, liberalism, equal rights, equality.
We stand against: Totalitarianism, terrorism, slavery, despotism, authoritarianism, bigotry, Marxism, fundamentalism.

We can condense our history only so much but we were once part of a grand empire that spanned the globe and deep space over 200 millenniums ago then we had a civil war and this nation gained its independence over the next 200 millennia this nation turned into a galactic empire home to over 200+ billion inhabitants.

Not entirely finished, but as a main overview this is pretty good.
Tribal Era - 7 BCE to 430 CE

On what is now classified as 7 BCE, the Mlorbs tribe was founded in what is now Southern Blorbs. Historians beleive that the Blorbians were a very advanced tribe, especially due to the fact that they were the first civilization in the western hemisphere to invent a writing system, which involved using the very colorful juice of a fruit native to the area on cave walls, and later, clay tablets. It is beleived that the area they stayed in was previously unpopulated.

At first, the tribe only had a couple hundred members, who lived in small group shacks, and only covered a few square kilometers. However, only 12 years later in 5 CE, we beleive they noticed the extreme amount of food in the area, given they were hunter gatherers, and rapidly began to expand. The size of the colony boomed, both in sheer size and population, and by 80 CE the population had risen to a staggering three thousand, due to much higher birth rates and the immigration of several smaller tribes in the area, wanting to learn the Mlorbian ways and take advantage of the resources. Over the next couple hundred years, the tribe expanded further and further into the lush, plentiful food sources ahead, advancing in technology along the way. That is, until, there became no more land to expand into. Very quickly had they reached the end of their food rich land they kept exploring further. This was okay, until they began to have to compete with other tribes for food.

You see, tribal borders arent very secure, and the density of populations is very low. Sure, there were over 10,000 of them there at the time, however over the expanse of land they had, finding anybody sneaking around would prove difficult. Suddenly, the land in the area transformed from lots of empty, uninhabited land for tribes to exploit, into a harsh inviroment of stealing, fighting, and exploiting the societies of tribes who had no time to adapt to having nobody for miles but themselves.

Tribic Federation Era - 430 CE to 1022 CE

Finally, in 430 CE, the Mlorbs tribe had an idea - to form a regional federation of tribes who openly shared food, knowledge, and space. Most other tribes agreed, and from that point on, the Tribic Federation of Greater Mlorbs was founded. At this moment, the technology of the area skyrocketed. Most tribes had their own couple advanced technologies, like one group with advanced weaponry, or another who, given the worst land for hunter gatherers, had actually invented basic agraculture. This allowed the wars over food and food rich land to end, leading to a long era of peace, plentiful resources, fast expansion, and most of all, extreme technological advancement. (Relative to the speed of advancement of before, which was horribly slow)

That is, until it got too advanced. Near the end of its life, the advancements in defense, safetey, and govournment policy, had led to each tribe of the federation growing increasingly distant. All had formed official borders, had their own millitaries, and some even built entire walls between them. Worse yet, this segregation led to different religious beliefs, political veiws, cultures, and ways of life. Many theatened to leave. Others threatened to kill every last person who didn't agree with them.

The nail in the coffin was when one tribe decided to deport any people who had different political veiws or religions. This led to horrible tensions between the nations, and also, a side affect of this, since Mlorbs had no official religion, any atheists or agnostics were deported here, leading to less religoin in neighboring southern tribes, and since the most popular religion only had two tribes, which were both in the north, that said that it wast the national religion, so everone of that religion was departed to the north, leading to less and less religion the further south you go.

Kingdemic Era - 1022 CE to 1143 CE

Finally, in 1022, the Tribic Federation of Greater Mlorbs was dissolved. Each tribe turned into their own, totally seperate nation. The largest tribe, Mlorbs, turned into the Kingdom of Mlorbs, and also adopted a new govournment system - A Kingdom. They built up walls, their millitary, and generally was the most powerful of the area. They flourished with no more non-self sustaining tribes mooching off them, while the others entered a mini dark age with famines and alot of problems.

Empiric Era - 1143 CE to 1401 CE

After feeling bad for other nations, wanting a more updated political system, and the desire to conquer the world, the kingdom of Mlorbs wished to go back to the area's roots and bring all the kingdoms back together under one new government - The Mlorbian Empire.
For the southern nations - of which were the least self sustaining of the whole bunch, they actually begged to join this new fancy empire. As they accepted, Mlorbs began to expand northword. Northern nations needed a bit more... coaxing. Of the millitary kind.

However, all of the original Mlorbian tribes, and lots of new other nations, had become part of the empire by only 1201.

This is where it gets interesting;
In the late 1300s, the difference between north and south began to grow considerably. Southern people wanted a more 'modern' republic, while the northern wanted to revert to their roots of kingomism. Tensions grew until finally, the south declared independance, starting the 27 years war on October 4th, 1374. A bloody battle went on, until finally, on january second, 1401, a peace treety was signed. They had been in about a tie, but eventually Mlorbs signed a peace treaty with Blorbs. Mlorbs would later have a revolution and become Orbs, a more advanced and more stable nation.

Oligarchic Era - 1401 to 1616

After the signing of peace, the Republic of Blorbs was founded. This republic would be an oligarchic republic. And for a long time, it prospered well. Little to say about this timeframe.

1st Republic - 1616 to 1705

The citizens were unhappy with the current oligarchic republic, and very quickly overthrough it, then installing an even more democratic republic. This wouldn't even last as long as the Oligarchic era.

2nd Republic - 1705 to 1902

After being unhappy with the first republic, a second was born. This one was much more stable, however little had really even changed. The only reason this one lasted longer was because the people thought that it would be better, even though almost nothing changed. Their technology stayed a little behind, and elections were still just as corrupt as before, rights hadn't improved much, etc.

Social Democratic Era - 1902 - Present

Angered by a collapse of their capitalist economy and a lack of progress, a new, socialist govournment was installed by the people. Somehow, they instilled the perfect middle ground between capitalism and communism, as it led to extreme technological advancements, taking them from behind to the forefront of science. Along with that, the genaral quality of life, rights, and pretty much everything else grew to fantastic proportions, and the nation was stabler than ever.

As far as I am concerned you condensed your history considerably more than that is wise.

Since our nation technically doesn't take place on Earth, but in an alternate dimensional version of earth called Delta, so dates differ from normal.

  • PE 1080 - PE 980: First humans to arrive in Korek
  • PE 980 - PE 500: The Almaru tribes form from these nomads, and their culture is a descendant form of a culture from the southern side of the continent


The First Era (Classical to medieval period tech)
  • 1E 587: The City of Seyvantyan is founded as the first city of the Scottovian city-states in southern Korek
  • 1E 612 - 1E 1097: Other city-states form in the Scottovian area
  • 1E 2083: After many years of internal conflict in the Scottovian area, the city-states are united together under the Kingdom of Scottovia by King Dokairus


The Second Era (Renaissance to the start of the machine age)
  • 2E 309: The area now known as Korek is discovered by explorers from across the globe from their first landing on the north coast of Korek, discovering the Almaru tribes there
  • 2E 453: Heinarsburgan settlers form the colony of New Heinarsbourg
  • 2E 491: Kylamian settlers form the colony of Seatra
  • 2E 532: Seatra expands to the south and attempts an invasion of Scottovia. Seatra City is sacked by Scottovian warriors, Scottovia wins.
  • 2E 601: New Heinarsbourg starts importing slaves from the south end of the continent, the throne of Scottovia becomes concerned about this situation
  • 2E 835: Scottovia starts attacking slaver caravans, freeing the slaves and setting up encampments all throughout east Korek
  • 2E 1092: A rebellion begins in Seatra, attempting to free the colony from their empire. The rebellion fails and the leaders are exiled to central Korek.
  • 2E 1163: The Kingdom of Karanika forms from the Scottovi encampments for the free slaves
  • 2E 1753: The Republic of Fiersa forms in central Korek out of the descendants of the exiled rebels, officially becoming one of the first "democratic" countries in the world
  • 2E 1805: Scottovi soldiers attack Fiersan soldiers when their claims of land intercept, thus initiating a war between Fiersa and Scottovia. Scottovia surrendered after many of their soldiers were killed
  • 2E 1872: A border dispute war occurs between New Heinarsbourg and Karanika. Clear borders are then established between New Heinarsbourg and Karanika.
  • 2E 2104: Borders of all nations within the Korek area are now clearly established

  • 2E 2356: Appalled at New Heinarsbourg about their treatment of slaves, Karanika invades New Heinarsbourg and takes almost the entire colony except for the city. Imperial support is disconnected from New Heinarsbourg and it becomes a city-state.
  • 2E 2394: Seatra establishes themselves as a Parliamentary Theocracy, considering their attachment to Catholicism.
  • 2E 2496: A civil war initiates in Karanika, with the north wanting to secede and return to New Heinarsbourg. The south wins the war and so the north still stays attached to Karanika.
  • 2E 2520: Seatra City becomes one of the first cities on the continent to light up during the nighttime, now with their access to light bulbs.

The nation is led by a single-party state with the Communist Party in power, and Donelle Korek as the new President. The town of Saiti is re-named to Korek City.
  • 3E 225: The Korek Civil War commences, with the foreign corporate powers battling the new governments. The industries are nationalized within Korek, and the other corporations are forced out of the country.
  • 3E 233: Although communist Korek's radical Stalinist-like economic policy quickly lead to modernizing the nation, it did lead to a short famine along with many worker's deaths.
  • 3E 238: Donelle Korek becomes infamous for her ruthlessness and her massive personality cult.
  • 3E 241: A socialist nation whom Korek became allied with was struck with a civil war. This leads to Korek intervening in the war, making this the first overseas intervention done by any nation from this primarily third-world continent.

  • 3E 282: Korek primary elections have Anson Roggeveen of the Social Democratic Party elected into office. He manages to boost Korek's military defensive strength within a year.
  • 3E 283: The armistice is broken, and the empire is back at war with Korek. The Korek military along with the help of several other allied armies start to invade the empire.
  • 3E 284: The Korek military has successfully liberated the nations of the continent of the empire. The nation's massive military strength is used on these new nations, and Roggeveen uses this might to establish similar Social Democratic governments in these nations.
  • 3E 286: Together, Korek and the liberated countries develop an economic cooperation pact.
  • 3E 290: Korek's economy has improved to the point of being considered a first-world country, along with a few other nations on the continent.
  • 3E 292: Newly-elected Centre Party Prime Minister Aart Dennel pulls Korek's military out of the other nations and slashes military spending.
  • 3E 299: Dennel becomes a controversial figure as KOP (Korek Oversight Police) discover that he has been using portions of taxpayer money to invest in his personal sludge fund. Dennel is removed from office. Head-of-state Lady Jaslyn Korek I also serves as a prime minister for this period (as an independent).
  • 3E 302: Jaslyn Korek I goes back to be the head-of-state as new primary elections then elect Trecia Adema of the Communist Party, the first Communist prime minister since Donelle Korek.
  • 3E 312: Derek Vossen of the Social Democratic Party is elected prime minister.
  • 3E 322: Paulene Harvey of the Communist Party is elected prime minister, and is still serving.
  • 3E 327: Modern day.
Extremely left on almost everything.
Korek is actually based off of a political ideology which I call "Korekism", it's similar to anarcho-communism.

Timeline of Modern Doulas History

Pre-Empire History, years 4-3245 - 4-3299

4-3245 - The United Planetary Republic of Enda is formed in the aftermath of the third world war. Extensive civil and political freedoms are guaranteed through the Global Constitution.

4-3251 - The global economy begins to rebound after the world war. There is a mass interest in space travel.

4-3253 - The Void Plan is formed, in which the future colonization of the solar system is planned.

4-3260 - The first lunar colony is founded.

4-3279 - The first artificial intelligence system is invented. In the same year, followers of a growing religion called "Stellarism" stage global protests.

4-3298 - A radical Stellarist political party calling itself "The Holy Nationalist Party of Enda" stages an armed coup d'etat, and overthrows the ruling body of the world.

4-3299 - The United Planetary Republic of Enda is dissolved. In its place, the Holy Nationalist Party of Enda establishes itself as the governing body of the planet, changing its title to The Holy Empire of the Doulas. The Holy Empire reestablishes the calendar, declaring that a new era had dawned over planet Enda. The following year would be changed to 1, to signify this new time.


The Beginnings of the Holy Empire, years 1 - 55 A.E. (After Enlightenment)

1 - The first emperor of the Holy Empire, Solaris Khemet Vatal I, is crowned.

2 - Emperor Vatal re-writes the planetary constitution, effectively transforming Enda into a fascist theocracy. Vatal is declared supreme ruler of the planet. The White Star, the god of Stellarism, is made a ceremonial ruler above Emperor Vatal. Religious freedoms are suppressed worldwide. Vatal abolishes elections for heads of state, deeming democracy a terrible "tyranny by majority." Elections for local representatives, however, are kept.


7 - The wife of Emperor Vatal bears a son, Thoksos Khemet Vatal III. He is first in line to the throne.

9 - Fossil fuel usage becomes entirely outdated. Industrial carbon emission levels are lowered to zero.

10 - The Holy Institute of Science & Biological Technologies is established in Port Antiquity. The government directly funds research on cloning and interplanetary travel.

11 - Khemet's wife bears another child, a daughter, named Yillinda Avil Vatal.

19 - The global economy enters a deep recession. Secessionist sentiments begin to spread in the western nations.

23 - Holy Institute of Science & Biological Technologies tests the first anti-matter weaponry.

24 - Parliament approves the production of the nation's first official artificial intelligence system. The SSCE (Sentient Self-sustaining Conscious Entity) is created.

26 - A mass uprising occurs in the city of Urashal in the Western Continent of Gorad over the perceived unfair tax burden, and the severe limiting of civil and political rights.

27 - The Council of Gorad declares its independence. Four other Councils in the western hemisphere declare their independence, and they join to form the Democratic States of The West. Emperor Vatal declares war on the Democratic States.

29, third quarter - The conflict, now referred to as the Last War of Enda, transforms into a bitter stalemate. Parliament orders for the SSCE, while still experimental, to be placed under direct military control. It is renamed the NSSCE (National Sentient Self-sustaining Conscious Entity), and is absorbed into the military's defense systems. The NSSCE is given access to the Empire's nuclear arsenal. However, the AI system recommends using the experimental anti-matter weaponry on the Democratic States. The Emperor approves.

29, fourth quarter - An anti-matter bomb is dropped on the city of Cize by the NSSCE, a key city of the Democratic States, nearly destroying it. Hundreds of thousands are killed, and countless more are wounded. The Democratic States, fearing this new weapon, surrendered. The NSSCE, however, continues to wage war, and launches another missile on former Democratic States territory. This missile crashes into the ocean, but causes greater fear of Emperor Vatal and his regime. The Emperor, regretting his previous decision, orders for the NSSCE to be unplugged.

30 - The continent of Gorad is placed under military rule. Reconstruction efforts are enacted.

39 - Emperor Vatal's administration considers revitalizing the former Void Plan, and specifically outlines asteroid mining to help stimulate the economy.

41 - The Holy Empire constructs the Stellar Eternity Project which goes further than the former Void Plan by outlining a push to expand beyond the solar system and eventually explore planets in interstellar space.

44 - Three ships from the Holy Lunar Colony sets out to explore the distant planets in the solar system, containing a team of over 60 people in a ten-year plan to visit the entire solar system.

45-55 - The various planets of the solar system are explored and charted, paving the way for future colonization attempts.
