History

The earliest evidence of human inhabitants is the Cawanol Cave Man who lived some 50,000 years ago. This suggested that Bisgea was inhabited by humans long before the Bisnugeatan Empire's rise thousands of years later.

There was no unifying political body or state during that time. The region was filled with city-states, each led by its own King. These city-states each worshipped their own gods and had different customs and beliefs. An example of these city states is Bisnugeate, Cawanol, Parionald, and many more.

In 20,000 BC, King Leonidas of Bisnugeate started invading other city-states for the expansion of Bisnugeate. With his excellent leadership, the plan was successful. After a few years, Leonnidas was now King of the Bisnugeatan Empire, which was composed of modern day Bisgea and some parts of neighboring countries.

After tens of thousands of years, the Empire grew prosperous and powerful. All while keeping itself peaceful. There were no wars during that time, a single battle never occurred. All of this changed King Frankfurt died in 1203. The Empire was divided upon his three sons; Oliver, William, and Peter, taking the northeast, northwest and south, respectively.

The brothers grew greedy and envious of each other. All wanted to take the whole empire for themselves. Aggression started in 1241 when Oliver declared war on the Northwestern and Southern Bisnugeatan Empires. The two responded by declaring war as well. Battles occurred about once a month between two of the brothers.

At the Battle of Palms in 1242, King William was slain by King Oliver's men, making Oliver the ruler of the Northern Bisnugeatan Empire. Bisgea was now divided into two, the Northern Bisnugeatan Empire led by King Oliver and the Southern Bisnugeatan Empire led by King Peter.

The war grew uglier in the later years. Battles increased in frequency as the months passed. At the faithful Battle of Thrones in 1248, Oliver was beheaded by Peter, reuniting Bisgea once more. His first act as King was to rename the empire from the Bisnugeatan Empire to The Kingdom of Bisgea.

After a very serious scandal, the people protested for democracy in 1529. We thou wish for thy freedom to choose thy own's fate, one unknown writer had said. The King of that time, Nothan IV, agreed and the act was implemented at once. He went on to become the first president of the Republic of Bisgea on January 27, 1529.

When Albert Dotig rose to the presidency in 1635, all was well. But that changed in June 14, 1637, when he declared Martial Law. The declaration became unpopular as the military abused human rights. Because of the abuses and Dotig's malpractices of power, Emilio Marcelo and comrades formed the El Resistensya, an organization bent on Bisgean independence from Dotig's authoritarian rule.

Battles occurred frequently. No clear advantage was seen on either side. But on 1643, Albert Dotig was killed and the El Resistensya won its war. Emilio Marcelo became the first president of the Second Republic of Bisgea.

For the next 200 years, Bisgea became a wealthy nation with an outstanding economy. But in 1853, the tables were turned when the Fadallieme Military Government invaded. Under self-appointed leader, Remlikov Brodashenzy, the economy dropped and Bisgea became a terrible place to live in. Thousands of Bisgeans fled to neighboring countries, not to ask for help but to stay and live there for the rest of their lives, never to return.

Over the next years, Brodashenzy killed millions of Bisgeans. Grenades were thrown wherever riots and rallies formed. Bisgeans were killed for no reason at all. Thousands just disappeared, never to be seen again. During Remlikov's reign, the death rate increased by 183%, birth rates decreased by 73% and most citizens never left their homes. In 1873, Remlikov declared war on the BDF

Several times did did the Bisgean Defense Force under the leadership of Reumer Mortilla, the president before the FMG's invasion, try to reclaim Bisgea but to no avail. They never won a single battle. The BDF almost ceased to exist, only a few hundred were left. Brodashenzy thought that they have wiped the BDF off the face of the earth. But he was wrong, the BDF went into hiding and started recruiting.

In 1987, the BDF, under the leadership of Gerard Lontoc, successfully assasinated 9 high ranking officials of the FMG. The FMG fought back but was defeated due to the loss of high ranking officers. Eventually the FMG collapsed, and Gerard Lontoc was declared president.

Military

The Armed Forces of Bisgea is the force commissioned with the task of defending the country. Created late January 2011 as a successor to the late Bisgean Defense Forse, the AFB is new and training has just begun. However, most enlistees were part of the Bisgean Defense Force so no new training is necessary.

The AFB is currently numbered at about 50,800,000 with roughly 7 million of those within the reserve forces. The remaining 43,800,000 are divided into four branches, namely the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Space Force.

Membership is voluntary during peacetime and only able-bodied single Bisgeans aged 18-35 are allowed to enlist though they are allowed to marry after enlisting. However, able-bodied Bisgeans between the ages of 18-45 are liable for conscription should it be necessary. All Bisgeans receive mandatory military training during their last two years of high school as it is part of the curriculum.
