Founding of the Grand Terim Caliphate

In an effort to combat aggression from the outlying tribes in modern-day Qasifya, Mubata, and Figuerroa, a group of ten tribal leaders controlling extensive territory in the Duhaban Desert met in Al-Huyafir. After extensive negotiation, these warlords agreed to unite under one common banner. Toward the conclusion of the negotiations, three clerics from the Al-Huyafir mosque begged for an audience with the warlords as they claimed to have had a vision from God that foretold this meeting would hold dominion over the sands. As they addressed the leaders, the clerics declared that God selected Farid Abdul ibn Terim, leader of the Terim Tribe, to not only be the leader of the covenant, but that he was to be the caliph of the new empire. Farid Abdul accepted the honor and over the course of his leadership, he oversaw the consolidation and expansion of the caliphate.

Caliph Omran II the Reformer

Earning him the nickname “the Reformer,” Caliph Omran II oversaw a series of economic, political, and social reforms that revolutionized the Grand Terim Caliphate. Facing a stagnant economy due to years of war and numerous rebellions across the caliphate, Omran II inherited an empire on the brink of collapse. His father, Omran I, died to an assassin’s poison—believed to be working on behalf of a dissident group and the Grand Vizier, Yazid ibn Muhammad Al-Maqhabi—and Omran II acknowledged that he needed to change course if the caliphate was to survive. He resolved first to replace all of his father’s viziers with fresh appointees and to hold talks with the various rebel groups from all across the empire. Two primary grievances arose: government corruption and economic hardship. To address these, Omran first adopted a merit-based system of examinations and government accountability measures to limit the corruption of the bureaucracy. Second, he allowed the coinage of silver and authorized a policy of tax forgiveness for farmers unable to pay due to a series of poor harvests in the preceding years. In addition to these, Omran also instituted numerous other policies, including changes to inheritance law preventing the accumulation of property by single owners, instituting legal protections for women, creating a professional standing army that reported directly to the caliph, established a civil service academy allowing commoners to study alongside nobles for certification, and ceded additional governing power to local jurisdictions.

Polatilian Revolution

Led by the Grand Patriarch Friedrich Schechtmann, the Polatilian Army overthrew the last vestiges of the Terim Caliphate in Gragastavia and established their own theocratic monarchy to govern what is now modern Gragastavia under Polatilian rule.

Glisandian Independence

The Glisandian royal house was always subservient to the Yellowsian dynasty. In 1747, the Grand Duke declared that Glisandia would go its own course and the Yellowsians sent in troops to put down the rebellion. The Kingdom of Jumnia sent in troops to aid the Glisandian uprising against Yellowsia. After 5 years of bloodshed, the Koningur of Yellowsia gave in and granted his cousin, the Grand Duke, his own nation. Relations on the Yellowsian borders with Jumnia and Glisandia remained strained for decades after.

Lacetanya Independence

After months of national revolt against Espicutan rule, Lacetanya declared its independence. The largest city, El Raval, became the seat of power. The Vilaró clan, the most prominent Lacetan noble family, becomes the first, and to date, only dynasty of the Monarchy, chosen by council. The first ruler installed was Queen Eulàlia I. Eulàlia immediately called for the Parlament de Lacetanya to be established. Militia members from the revolts are drafted into the new Lacetan Army and Navy. Espicutan troops were withdrawn later that year after negotiations and economic concessions were reached.

Lacetan First Republic & Civil War

Revolution overthrows Lacetanya's constitutional monarchy. A republic is proclaimed. Liberal and conservative parties initially dominate politics, with the socialist labour movement eventually gathering strength. A coup d'état in 1930 brings a far-right regime to power, triggering the civil war in 1935. The war was caused by the descent of the First Republic into oligarchy and a coup d'état in 1930 by right wing military officers. The civil war was actually three sided between the anarchists/leftist faction, the democratic faction banded with monarchists, and the fascists. The Democratic faction ultimately prevails in 1942, with significant inclusive concessions to the Leftists.

Austrak-Neu Engollian War of 1920

A series of border incidents in October 1920 flared up into a full blown war as both nations used modern warfare machines and techniques for the first time such as trench warfare, tanks, machine guns and aeroplanes. Territory was gained and lost on both sides, most notably with Pfunds and surrounding area occupied by Neu Engollon, and Bad Terzel occupied by the Austraks. Casualties numbered in the thousands on both sides. General Von Kommer, who disobeyed orders from Geneva to stand down, was arrested, tried and executed for war crimes at the end of the conflict. The Treaty signed at Pfunds on 23 March ended hostilities and restored the original border as the demarcation of territory, with all gains ceded back to each side. Annual ceremonies including the leaders of both countries have been held in remembrance of the dead and to honor the peace. On the hundredth anniversary, the Austrakian President has declined to attend the ceremonies, due to recent flare ups between the two nations.

Yellowsian Revolution

Famine and conflict with neighbors re-ignited long simmering sentiments from the peasant class. Failed uprisings in the 19th century laid the foundation. Mutinies in the military and food riots began a downward spiral for the monarchy. Socialist activist Vaugimir Lunyuk traveled from exile in Neu Engollon by steamer to the Western Tavlyrian coast, followed by a long train ride across to Yellowsia where he was smuggled over the border. Lunyuk organized and led the Menshevik styled socialists to decimate the other communist, fascist, monarchist, and anarchist factions and eventually drive the Koningur (King) to abdicate. The royal family was executed soon after. Minor foreign intervention was too little and too late to stop the popular revolt. The Yellow Star Republic was declared on 25 Sep 1924.

1942-09-06 00:00:00

Lacetan 2nd Republic and Birth of the 3rd

The 2nd Republic was established at the end of the Civil War with the fascists removed from power. It was characterised by Keynesian economics, a pursuit of social calm, and a three-party system. A popular revolt and general strike in 1968 yielded further concessions and weakened the moderate conservative regime at that time. In later years, The Republic was hobbled by economic stagnation and increasing corruption. The 2nd Republic collapsed during a severe recession in 1989-1990 and the "Mans Netes" ("clean hands") anti-corruption investigations helped to destroy the old parties and bring in a new era. A leftist coalition won the 1990 election and implemented radical changes, including federalisation, direct democracy, and cooperativisation of the economy. A directorial republic was instituted in 2000, completing the transition to the Third Republic.

Gaulic Colonial Independence Wars

Over the last couple centuries, the Gauls have lost a vast empire due to independence struggles like that of Taranima, or other colonial powers seizing them, most notably the Anglos taking over most of Gaul's Wishtonian holdings. Gaul lost her remaining colonies through the period following the Continental Wars to the late 1960's. Mubata, Qasifya, and St. Andre, all fought for and won independence from Gaulic control. An uprising in Dachine was successfully put down by the Gaulic garrison with additional reinforcements, granting Gaul her sole victory in keeping her overseas possessions. St. Andre was the last to gain independence, after a very short struggle. After the Mubatan and Qasifyan struggles, Gaul was hesitant to send reinforcements so far out to St. Andre. Today, only Dachine and Marveille remain as Gaulic territories, with Cinqfreres recently being sold off to a private corporation.

Qasifyan Incursion

In response to raids across the border from a major Qasifyan warlord, the Gragastavian Regular Army sent a small expeditionary force to defend their territory and, if possible, kill or capture the warlord. While militarily successful, as cross-border raids ceased in the immediate aftermath, the command failures during the Qasifyan Incursion indicated to many senior Gragastavian officials that the Regular Army was starting to operate independently of the directives of the civilian government. This became cause for concern for President Al-Aziz, although the issue would not be addressed until a few years later. Allied warlords and factions of the Qasifyan armed forces controlled by them also attacked Marveille both by land and sea, prompting Gaul to respond, mostly with garrison forces, as well as a small task force sent from the Republic. While the Qasifyan central government had never been strong, the Gauls believed having a leader that was sympathetic to the West would settle a lot of the radical 'issues' the rest of the region was having with Qasifya, and installed President Yafi Al-Tafiz in Jamfar.

1981-04-12 03:13:11

The Vita Kubwa

The Vita Kubwa (Great War) was fought mainly between Mubata and Qasifya. Tensions were already high between the two neighbors with several border incidents and overlapping claims. Mubata had been developing a nuclear program at a facility called Zangtopo East. When Qasifyan intel learned of it via contacts in the rebel MFM (Mubatan Freedom Movement), they passed the information on to Western agencies, including the BGSE (Gaul intel). Gaul decided to act with the help of Qasifya, whose agents went in to disrupt Mubatan air defenses while a Gaulic air raid destroyed the facilities. Mubatan hopes of being a nuclear power were incinerated along with its scientists. Unable to take revenge on Gaul, but for some unlucky foreign residents and a Gaulic flagged ship offshore, they turned their attention on Qasifya and attacked, driving on major military and infrastructure facilities and surrounding the capital, Jamfar. Qasifya fought back and was finally able to gain most of their territory back by the end of the war. Peace was achieved at a conference in Geneva, and the two Southern Tavlyrian powers agreed to restore the border as it was. While Mubata still decried the air attack on Zangtopo and civilian deaths associated with it, subsequent atrocities on Arab Qasifyans during the War belied and negated those claims. Mubata has never pursued a nuclear program again since the Vita Kubwa.

Falko-Gragastavian War

After their continued agitation in the Senate, Muhammad Hassan and his Islamic Conservative Union took power in late 1986. Among their list of priorities was defunding the Gragastavian Regular Army while funneling money into their private paramilitary forces, establishing Sharia law, persecuting Polatilians and Christians, and deposing King Friedrich VII. While they were successful in some respect at all of these aims, King Friedrich and the Gragastavian government-in-exile were successful in convincing the Falkasians to launch a joint offensive into Gragastavia to restore the old order. Though the government was restored, the Islamist insurgency that would plague the nation until the early 2020s (with South Gragastavian independence) traces its origins to the days of the Hassan regime.

1992-03-11 03:13:11

Qasifyan Troubles

The rise of the QLA began in the early 1990s in response to a weak central government and foreign resources extraction in the country. Terrorist actions across the region were contributed to this radical Islamic group and Gaulic troops were sent in to hunt them down. By 2002, the QLA were declared vanquished and Gaulic troop levels in the area returned to the normal Marveille garrison. in 2011, the QLA struck again, first bombing the Governor's mansion in Marveille, killing both the Governor and Lt. Governor, and later bombing LeClerc airport in Paritte, Gaul. Once again, Gaulic troops were sent in to hunt down the QLA leadership, this time with a TSO multi-national coalition that included the RFS, Neu Engollon and San Rosito. The QLA and allied warlord militias were decimated by commando and drone strikes. While they weren't quite defeated, Paritte pulled the expedition and declared that the QLA was no longer an operable force that could threaten the world. Many believe the decision was made due to TSO assets needed in the north to fight the YSR, but the Gaulic and other TSO governments have never acknowledged it.

Northern Tavlyrian War

Forces of the Yellow Star Republic invaded Glisandia and Jumnia, in a surprise attack. Honoring a secret pact, Osatana joined in, but was only able to secure a small bit of Glisandian territory in the SW due to fierce resistance. The Duke, Royal family, and advisors fled the capital, crossing the Jumnian border shortly after, where they would spend the next 2 years leading the exiled Glisandian Government and resistance forces. Along with the Jumnian government, the exiled Government kept on the run as the YSR overran all but a small pocket in the NE of Jumnia. The YSR set up a puppet socialist regime. A coalition immediately was formed that included Gaul, Neu Engollon, RFS, Reino do Brazil, Espicuta, and several other TSO nations to liberate Glisandia and Jumnia from YSR control. Coalition troops and supplies poured into the Jumnian pocket to hold it and force a breakout. Naval skirmishes occurred all across the Northern Tavlyrian Ocean between the TSO and Osatanian and YSR ships. A major attack on Ankkeyja Island destroyed the HQ of the YSR Navy and the remaining ships of the1st Revolutionary Fleet, leaving only the 2nd Fleet to defend YSR, which kept to port as much as possible afterwards, securing naval dominance for the Coalition. Most of the remaining PRAF (YSR), was also knocked from the sky during the first year of the TSO Coalition intervention, leaving Yellowsian ground forces and support bases dangerously open to attack. The Yellowsian cities of Tankjel, Pujarstad and Hawkrejdor suffered limited aerial and cruise missile attacks by Coalition forces. The threat of nuclear escalation by the YSR's Politburo halted further attacks beyond the Glisandian border. Commando raids preceded the full liberation of Glisandia by Coalition forces in early 2015. A successful coup toppled the YSR Politburo and installed the RLO Director Gerta Hildgursdottir as Director General of the YSR. Hildgursdottir vowed to continue the war and inflict heavy casualties on the Coalition. The war ended in April with the total defeat of YSR occupation forces at the Battle of Rikijdrottin and the subsequent Yellowsian retreat across the border. A radical Christian faction called the Holy Domain that rose up during the YSR occupation has continued to fight the Glisandian government in an ongoing civil war.

President Alejandro Belino

Due to growing protest at the excesses of the ruling Junta by the San Rositan people, they relented to relinquish power to a civilian government and allow the Congress in Puerto Cristal to reconvene. In the resulting election, the hugely popular former baseball player Alejandro Belino won the Presidency in a landslide and proceeded to quickly reform the nation’s economy, social policies, and foreign relations. He was as unpopular with the rebels, cartels, and corrupt top military officers, to the same degree he was immensely popular with the majority of the people. Belino implemented changes in the military and law enforcement and pushed for special units to be formed to battle the drug cartels and their armies of sicarios. Una Brigada de Operaciones Especiales y Ejecución was the most successful and famous of these military or paramilitary units. Secondary to battling the sicarios, the military renewed their efforts to target the Marxist rebels, which kept him somewhat in line with the military for a while. Continued military corruption in collusion with the cartels brought it all tumbling down, however. President Belino was finally assassinated during the 57th attempt on his life, amidst a military coup. The Junta seized power again, and they proceeded to roll back all of Belino’s reforms, ending the few years experiment of democracy for the Republic. While images of Belino are banned, he is still a major hero of the San Rositan people.

Gragastavian Civil War

Following the declaration of independence of South Gragastavia, numerous militant groups joined together to march on Al-Duhaba. This began the four-year conflict that tore the nation apart as loyalist northern forces and their foreign allies clashed with the Islamist factions fighting for the south. After King Siegfried II's rise to the throne, the war came to a close with a South Gragastavian victory.

Founding of the Democratic Republic of Gragastavia

On the 24th of January, King Siegfried II abdicated the throne and abolished the monarchy. As part of his transition plan, a "free" and "fair" election had been held in the months prior, which saw Farouk Al-Hussein, one of the leading loyalist commanders in the Gragastavian Civil War, assume the Office of the President and lead the nation into its new dawn as a republic.
