Encyclopaedia Territorium

READ THIS BEFORE YOU APPLY

The World Currently:

Welcome to the Encyclopaedia Territorium, a collective of information containing public details from every sovereign nation. Here, a list of the existing nations is compiled as well as basic information about them. For example, regional maps. This is also where you get to apply to make a new state and begin your plans for world domination.

Applying for a New Nation:
Firstly, make sure you've read and understood the forum rules and all the stickied posts in the University. Once that's done, you're going to want to take a look at the world map to find a place for your country where nobody else's settled. For obvious reasons, you can't have a city where somebody else has Zone of Control (if you don't know what that means, then you didn't check the university like I said!). That said, nothing's stopping you from placing a city in land that somebody's merely claimed, as opposed to having actual control over. Keep your territory sensible though, if it's a straight line of pixels or it's all interspersed inside somebody else's empire, you'll probably be denied.

Once you have an idea of where you want to be, you're ready to apply!

Application Template:
The following is a template for you to use when applying (With examples in brackets). Most of the fields are to help you flesh out a nation with a decent backstory and an idea of how it is right now and where it's going to be.

REMEMBER: DON'T POST YOUR NATION OUTSIDE OF THIS THREAD UNTIL IT'S BEEN ACCEPTED.

ALSO REMEMBER: POST MAPS IN .PNG FORMAT ONLY WITH NO ANTI-AILIASING. OTHERWISE YOU GET BLURRY, LOW QUALITY STUFF AND YOU'LL BE REJECTED.

ANOTHER THING: ALL LARGE IMAGES SHOULD BE SPOILERED, IT'S NOT THE MODS JOBS TO FORMAT YOUR POSTS.

Nation Name: (The Republic of Prussia)
National Flag: (Insert imgur link here with img tags)
Zones of Control and Claims: (Insert map here of each of your three cities, the ZoC of each city and any claims you want to make)
Capital City: (Berlin)
Government Type: (Parliamentary Monarchy. Insert here short description of any specific, interesting bits about how your government works)
Economic System: (Socialist)
Leader Name: (Eternal President Georg Von Washington)
Ruling Political Faction: (The Party)
Most Followed Religion / State Religion: (Catholicism)
History: (Insert a few paragraphs about how your nation came to be. This should go from the point in history where your timeline diverges from the real world. For example, here, you might have a people's revolution in 1750, forcing the king to accept a parliament, etc.
Be long winded. This is your backstory.)
Claim Justification: (Insert here the reasons for the areas that you've claimed and put in your ZoC. Make it fit your history. This is to prevent people just dropping their cities on resource nodes and not thinking about anything.)

Existing Nations:
Claims are shown in different colour to the ZoC.

The Kingdom of Slovenes:


Yellow - Ljubljana
Orange - Claims
The Empire of Francia:


Blue - Ile de France
Cyan - Bretagne-Normandie
Purplish - Aquitaine

Nation Name: The Kingdom of Slovenes
National Flag: http://i.imgur.com/eIhaDHD.png
Zones of Control and Claims: http://i.imgur.com/J00x8re.png
Capital City: Ljubljana
Government Type: Consitutional Monarchy
Economic System: Capitalist
Leader Name: His Majesty Zvonko Zdravko
Ruling Political Faction: Konservativna Stranka Slovenije
History: The Slovenian Kingdom was founded when Slovenian nobles declared independence from Hungary in 1699. The Hungarians, weary from a recent war, couldn't stamp down this revolution. The main noble house of Zdravko took the Slovenian throne and a long period of peace reigned, resulting in a large economic and population growth. In 1762, a large Croatian revolt took place. The Croatians, feeling neglected, demanded equal rights to Slovenes. The then king decided to grant them the rights, to the dismay of the nobles. In 1790, Zvonko Zdravko ascended the throne.

Nation Name: The Kingdom of Irland and the Isles

National Flag:
DE FLEG:

Zones of Control and Claims:
Maps:





Capital City: Dyflin

Other major cities: Stjórnavágr, Eriksfjord

Government Type: Absolute Monarchy

Economic System: Capitalism

Leader Name: King Magnus VII Magnusson Crovan

Ruling Political Faction: The Nobility

History:
Pre 1150 - No Norman Conquest of Ireland occurs.
1154 - Godred II Olafsson ascends to the throne.
1155 - Under the harsh rule of King Godred II, Jarl Thorfinn Ottarsson flees to Somerled, Lord of Argyll and requests aid in a mission to become the new king. Somerled agrees, and begins a coup.
1156 - The Somerled and Thorfinn are executed by the king and their coup crushed.
1160 - King Godred II begins a campaign to bring Irland under his control. Allying with the most powerful Irish chiefs and promising them titles of nobility in exchange for aid, he begins his invasion.
1164 - After a long and bloody war, the entire island of Irland eventually comes under the control of King Godred II. Irish chiefs who did not submit are replaced by Norse Jarls, and those who did submit are given Jarldoms of their own.
1165 - Godred II dies of a pox. Magnus I Godredsson ascends to the throne at the age of 23.
1180 - King Magnus I sends out five expeditions with orders to explore the North Sea and return with information on the islands within it.
1181 - Four of the expeditions return, bringing a large amount of information. King Magnus I begins an effort to colonise the islands.
1200 - Magnus I dies of old age at 58. King Magnus II ascends to the throne at the age of 27.
1237 - Magnus II dies of a cough at 64. King Magnus III ascends to the throne at the age of 31
1249 - Magnus III dies of an axe-wound sustained whilst duelling at age 43. Magnus IV ascends to the throne at age 23
1263 - Magnus IV aids in the Norweigan invasion of Scotland, in exchange for the marriage of his heir and a Norweigan princess.
1312 - Alexander I ascends to the throne at age 38.
1315 - Refusing the request of the Pope to denounce the heresy that has established itself in the Kingdom of Irland and the Isles, Alexander I is excommunicated. Alexander I replies that the Pope has no hold over true believers in the Trinity, and in conjunction with several prominent clergymen who hold little loyalty to the Pope, sets himself up as the chief religious authority in the kingdom. He declares that the Insular faith is the one true faith, but assures religious minorities in the realm that tolerance is a great virtue in the eyes of the Trinity and that no man should be persecuted for his faith.
1316 - The Pope excommunicates all those who consider themselves to be of the Insular faith, denouncing them as heretics. For a time it seems that religious war may break out, but none does.
1400 - The colonisation of the North Sea islands is mostly complete, with established towns beginning to thrive. A goldsmithing industry develops in Island. Minor settlements arise in Vinland.
1600 - Much of the population of Irland is Nordicised, with much of the Nobility only speaking Irlandic, at this time significantly different from other Norse languages.
1760 - Alexander V dies of gout at age 54. Magnus V ascends to the throne at age 26.
1789 - Magnus V dies of a fever at age 55. Magnus VI ascends to the throne at age 32.
1796 - King Magnus VI issues a declaration, claiming much of North America to be his by Divine Right and Right of Discovery. His full title becomes His Royal Majesty Magnus VI Magnusson, by Grace of the Allfather King of Irland and the Isles, Jarl of Dyflin and of Søreyar and of Grønland and of Island and of Orkney and of Mann and of Føroyar and of Hetland, Lord of Vinland and of Bjørnland and of Fjelland and of Gressland and of Karland, Defender of the Faith and Protector of the Realm.

Fine, accepted, but I'll have you know that it took me dozens of seconds more time that I should have needed to read over that application.

Nation Name: Persia
National Flag:
Spoiler:
Zones of Control and Claims:
ZoC:
Spoiler:
Green: Isfahan, Orange: Shiraz Purple: Mahshahr
Claim;
Spoiler:
The transparent orange is the claim, and pink is considered in the 'sphere of influence'
Capital City: Isfahan
Government Type: Absolute Monarchy, with powerful local governors (Shahrabs)
Economic System: Centralised
Leader Name: Shah Abbas IV
Ruling Political Faction: The Safavid Dynasty
History: The early collapse of the Ottoman empire due to the resurgent Byzantines meant there were enough government troops to prevent the fall of Isfahan to Afhgan rebels in 1722, which historically led to the end of the Safavid Dynasty. However, this hastily cobbled-together force still took major losses in crushing the rebels, and the nation was practically defenceless against attacks by other tribes for the subsequent two decades. Abbas III managed to rebuild the military and stop the incursions, but made limited progress rebuilding the country. His recent death has left his son, Shah Abbas IV, with practical control only of the area around Isfahan and a few scraps across the Persian gulf. Although the challenges facing him are vast, the new Shah has a united people, a recovering economy, and a formidable military; and he is determined to return Persia to her former glory.

On behalf of MysticPing whilst he is away, upon request, I am posting his claim for him.

MysticPing wrote:Name: United Duchies of Germany
Flag:


The large bird symbolises the Crownlands, while the other two symbolizes the Lowlands and Neuborg

Global Map:



Local Map:



Anthem:



History:

After the french partial invasion of the Holy Roman Empire in 1033 the empire was left weak and allowed many of the states to just do as they wished. This lead several city-states to declare war on Stelz. Stelz won them all and came out as a strong duchy-size nation. The people surrounding the duchy of Stelz grew worried and formed a giant coalition consisting of Neuborg and the Newlands, together they had almost double the power of Stelz. They didn't take long to declare war upon Stelz. Before all hope was lost a brave group of heroes (later believed to be a bunch of hired thugs) assassinated the dukes of Neuborg and Lowlands. They wore lizard masks to protect their identities. In the following confusion Stelz took the opportunity and attacked, securing both duchies. The duke of Stelz now decided to call himself king. He formed the UDG that still exists today. The rivalry between the dukes is long gone and they now live peacefully together as a strong nation. These events took place somewhere near year 1200.

The next 300 years consisted mainly of investing into the realm. Creating economic growth and stability. There was a few border skirmishes with other nations and some minor borders changed. But for the most part UDG existed in peace.

The year 1512 the then king of the UDG decided that there was much fortune to be had in the so called "new world". He sent a couple of small fleets with settlers to try to settle land in south america. The project was initially successful but due to the UDG's lacking navy control over the colonies were bad at best. After a few years the colonies had been lost to conquest or native raids. The king begrudgingly gave up on the project and since then there has been no official records of attempt at other colonies.

The UDG has never been known for its navy, instead it focuses on a strong offensive based land force. Known for pioneering new tactics, units and weapons.

To celebrate the heroes the ceremonial suit used by the royal family and diplomats during important events is black scaled armor. This is a tradition that started originally as appreciation to the heroes that saved Stelz from conquest.

Religion:

Catholic

Government:

The UDG is a constitutional monarchy. The UDG is ruled by a king. The king owns the Crownlands and serves as its duke as well as being king. The UDG's government works like this: The king makes a proposal, the dukes each get one vote (as does the king). If there is a tie the king's heir serves as tiebreaker.

Both the dukes and the kings inheritance are ruled by Agnatic-Cognatic Primogeniture.

The current dukes/king is as follows:
Lowlands Coat of Arms:
Lowlands: Duchess Maria von Hoenigsberg .Age 32
Heir: Crown Prince Conrad von Hoenigsbeg. Age 14

Neuborg Coat of Arms:
Neuborg: Duke Peter von Bahr. Age 28
Heir: Crown Prince Claus von Bahr. Age 9

Crownlands Coat of Arms:
Crownlands (Duke and king): King Karl von Stelzner. Age 54
Heir: Crown Prince Egan von Stelzner. Age 20

Currently no pretenders

Economy:

The currency used in the UDG is called the Royal Mark. The coins feature a crown as well as a picture resembling the current king"

MysticPing, Accepted.

Nation Name: Recz Pospolitaja Białaja Ruś (Res Publica of White Rus)
National Flag:
Spoiler:
Zones of Control and Claims:
Spoiler:
Capital City: Bjereziersk
Major cities: Baltigrad, Mińsk
Government Type: Parliamentary Elective Monarchy
Economic System: Capitalism, with very faint influences of Feudalism
Leader Name: Jekaterina I Stanowiskija
Ruling Political Faction: Konfjederacja Ruskaja
History:
Spoiler:
1042: Kingdom of Poland, under the new king of Zbyszko I The Great, begins a new era.
1045-1080: Zbyszko during his reign, conquers Pruthenia, Belarus and the Red Ruthenia (Lvov and such)
1082: A new duke of Red Ruthenia rises to power. This time, its not a polish duke, but a ruthenian one. After 3 years of rule he grows discontent with the Polish liege, and allies with the duke of Belarus and duke of Pruthenia.
1083: The Polish king fies, and since he had no heir, his brother takes the throne. He, however, quickly gives up the throne - to his bastard son! The Polish nobles, now outraged by this, start a civil war in Poland. The three dukes see their chance, and declare independence.
1083-1087: During 4 years of fighting, the Polish rulers see there is no chance in winning against the revolting nobles and dukes. A peace treaty is signed in Cieszyn, where the Polish king agrees to split the land between the most powerful nobles and give independence to the eastern dukes.
1088: Kiev, who sent troops to help the three dukes win their war, now demands they swear fealty to the Crown of Ruthenia. Only the Red Ruthenian duke agrees to this, with the other two disobeying the Kiev's word.
However, the rules in Kiev dont take this lightly. They swiftly attack Belarus and Pruthenia, and defeat both with an ease.
1090-1125: During the time Kiev, now the strongest out of all the Ruthenian principalities conquers, or peacefully vassalizes, all the other princes. The boundaries are set, and the east slavic land are for once united.
1187: First Nomadic Invasion - As Ruthenia grows lazy from the peace, the nomads living to the south of launch an attack, aiming the riches of Kiev. They only manage to take a few castles in the south however, and are quickly pushed out by the Ruthenian armies.
1221: Mongols arrive. Enough said. Almost all the Ruthenian lands are conquered in the next two decades.
1244: Battle of Mińsk - As the Mongols arrive at the river of Mina, they expect there to be no resistance. However, Hungarians, Poles, Byelorussians, Pruthenians and peoples from many other nations united against the common enemy, and now the united army stands with the Mongols in sight. The battle begun, and after hours of fighting, Mongols are deafeated.
1244: As the united armies are moving to recapture mongol-controlled lands, the Great Khan dies. Everyone sees the opportunity, and the Mongols are pushed out of Ruthenia.
1251: The end of Mongol Empire - this one happened almost the same as we know it in real life.
1321-1333: Ruthenian civil war - Since centuries, Ruthenian lands were split in two. Novgorod in the north, and Kiev in the south. Kiev proved to be dominant of the two, and captured Novgorod some 200 years earlier. Now, the northern principalities grow envy of the riches of south, and declare independence. The next 12 years would be known as one of the most devastating wars Ruthenia ever fought. Finally, peace is settled with the empire split in two. However, the aftermath is horrible - 1/3 of the population dead, many big cities - among which Kiev - burned, and dead bodies pile around about everywhere.
1337-1341: With Kiev still in ruins, and the army practically dead, Poland, now reunited under one king, strikes to take back what they once conquered. In4 years they manage to occupy Kiev and other important cities, and peace is settles in Baltigrad, the capital of Prutehnia. Poland takes lands they conquered 300 years ago, and a bit more, all the way to Dneper, splitting Kiev into two - Dniepersk (Polish) and Kiev (Ruthenian.
1437: After a series of reforms, Poland becomes a parliamentary monarchy.
1456: The same parliamentary system is implemented in the autonomous lands of Belarus, Pruthenia and Dniepersk.
14th-16th century - For centuries, ruthenian lands west of Dneper and Dvina were influenced by christianity. The slavs slowly started celebrating events such as Christmas, Easter, and All Hallow's Eve, seeing them as their own however. Svarog became a much more central figure of worship, with Perun generally the second, regarded often as his son, or prophet, and the other gods more like demigods rather than anything. The catholics in areas of slavic majority meanwhile started picking up slavic traditions, again, seeing them as their own, their saints became more slavic-like with stronger god-like features, and a more divine feeling. The two became a lot like each other in the area, only with Pruthenia left unchanged, due to the very low amount of christians there. Nowadays, theologists mostly accept 14th to 16th century as the period where this syncretism happened the most. Outsiders considered this a heresy, and were upset by this taking place. The Pope even enacted an edict, condemning all those, and excommunicated them from the catholic church. Nowadays, these people generally call themselves "Rodne Wiary", but they were regarded as simply "pagans" by most of the population, the chrisitians meanwile were mostly referred to as "Eastern Rites"
1569-1590: Polish-Rutheno war - Novgorod, who now united with Kiev, declares a war on Poland. 21 years of fighting, with major battles taking place at Kiev-Dniepersk, Mohilew and Klaipeda, the war seems to still be stalemate. Something no one expected happened, however. A coup d'etat in Poland, putting the Novgorodian king on their throne, rendering the war won - for the loosing side of Novgorod.
1618-1620: History repeats itself - this time its Kiev who sparks the civil war, as opposed to Novgorod 300 years earlier. As poet Henrjik Zaborskij said however, 2 years later the kings basically said "Oh just screw it", and settles for peace, not wanting to have the same thing happening to them as it was previously. Ruthenia was once again split in two.
1620: After Kiev pulled back its armies, Novgorod - annuling anything the peace treaty said - attacked right away one more time. However, they did not expect that Kiev was expecting this. Having a good portion of its army backed out of the war, and now ready to strike, they destory Novgorodian armies, and Ruthenia is now.. united, but under Kiev.
1678: A formal letter arrives to the king of Kiev, threatening him with revealing information about his lovers, and telling him to surrender immediately and grant independence to Novgorod. He sent a reply letter saying "I guess i have no choice..."
1678-1688: 3rd Ruthenian Civil War. This time, Kiev manages to resist the revolters, and establishes controll over them. In the peace treaty, everything goes back to the state before war.
1690: Kievan king, bored of the rebellious Novgorodians, decides to curb all the vassals' rights, and create an absolutist monarchy. As expected - the vassals didnt like it. A war sparks out, with the king loosing it, and all the pricnipalities becoming independent.
1709-1713: Tensions between Belarus and Pruthenia continue rising, as the religious and cultural differences keep deepening. Finally, a war begins between the two, caused directly by the assasination of the king of Belarus by a pagano-slavic activist Mikołaij Pruski. The conflict, later called The 4 Years War, resluts in complete annexation of Pruthenia by Belarus.
1725: Belarus implements a reform to its parliemantary monarchistic government system, where the nobles would elect the new king from among the ruling dynasty. If there is no heir however, the king can choose the new dynasty.
1799: As the last king of Belarus from the dynasty of Poleskij dies, he chooses his wife to rule the country after him. Nobles - a bit upppity with the fact a woman rules their country for the first time, accept to this decision however. They have no choice after all.
THE END

Nation Name: The Kingdom of Joseon

National Flag:
Spoiler:

Zones of Control and Claims:
Spoiler:

Capital City: Hanseong (Seoul)

Government Type: Absolute Monarchy

Economic System: Capitalist

Leader Name: King Jeongjo

Ruling Political Faction: The Joseon Dynasty

History:
Spoiler:
In 1392, King Taejo established the Joseon dynasty on the ruins of the former Kingdom of Goryeo. After a power struggle between his sons later in life, Taejo abdicated the throne and was succeeded by his second son, Yi Bang-gwa. The power struggle continued under the rule of Gang-gwa, and out of fear of his many enemies, he allowed his brother Gang-won to ascend to the throne. During his reign, Gang-won consolidated his power and established Joseon as an absolute monarchy. Gang-won's policies led to Joseon attacking the Manchus in the north and the Japanese pirates on the coastline, as well as abolished the aristocracy's ability to field private armies. Gang-won abdicated in 1418 to his son Sejong, but would continue to influence Joseon until his death in 1422.

Under Sejong's rule, Joseon flourished, with the creation of a written alphabet, Hangul, large advances in science and technology, and the promotion of literature. Sejong was also an effective military leader, expanding Joseon's territory to the north, as well as invading Daemado Island in 1419 to clear it of Japanese pirates. Determined to end the pirate raids for good, Sejong annexed the island to the displeasure of the Japanese. Years later, Sejong's eldest son took the throne upon Sejong's death, but died two years later from illness.

With his death, his 12 year old son became the sixth king of Joseon, but was quickly overthrown in a coup and forced to abdicate by his uncle Sejo in 1455. Sejo began building up military forces on Daemado Island and when war broke out on mainland Japan in 1467, he launched an invasion of Kyushu. With the Japanese occupied by internal conflict, Korean forces quickly swept through Kyushu, driving out the Japanese and occupying the island. For over a century, Korean control of Kyushu went unchallenged, but in 1592 Japanese warlords attempted to drive the Koreans out of Japan, but were driven back by the use of Turtle ships and Hwach'a artillery. Afterwards, a treaty was brokered that ended the conflict.

In 1603, Christianity was introduced into Joseon when a diplomat returned from abroad with books written by a missionary. Christians were subject to harsh persecution at first, but gradually tolerance for them spread through Joseon.  In 1608, Gwanghaegun became the king of Joseon and restored diplomatic relations with the Japanese. Gwanghaegun brought radical changes to the kingdom, legalizing the practice of Christianity and ending slavery. His policies created many strong allies, but at the same time alienated many conservative members of the government. In 1623, several conservative members of the government launched a coup that overthrew Gwanghaegun, but a swift military intervention defeated them and restored Gwanghaegun to power.

For the next century, Joseon enjoyed peace in the region and maintained friendly relations with many of its neighboring states. During these years of peace, Christianity began to spread through Joseon, resulting in a large Catholic community alongside the more traditional Confucians. King Jeongjo took the throne in 1776 and has ruled Joseon since.

Leader Name: Emperadora Isabela III de El Imperio Iberico, incluyendo los Reinos de Leon, Andalucia, y Aragon.

History:
Early History
    Parts of Spain first came under Roman rule during the Second Punic War, where they captured Carthaginian trade colonies along the Eastern Coast. Over two centuries, the Romans conquered the Peninsula and Romanized the population. They established most of the customs, languages, and cultures that exist today, and in the 1st century they spread Christianity there.
    In the 400s the Roman hold on the peninsula left, with the Suebi, Vandals, and Alans moving into Gaul and the Visigoths pushing them across the Pyrenees. The tribes settled in various regions of Spain and Portugal, however, the Visigoths united the Peninsula as Hispania, establishing their capital in Toledo.

Middle Ages:
     In 711, Moorish Tribes of the to-be Ummayad Caliphate crossed the Gibraltair and quickly conquered the Visigothic Empire and most of Iberia. However, the Battle of Covadonga in 732 secured the safety of the Kingdom of Asturias in the northern coast, and in 739 Asturias secured Galicia from the Ummayads.
   Through gradual infighting and decadence in the Caliphate, the Ummayad empire became weak and fractured in rival Muslim kingdoms. This opportunity was seized by Asturias, now extending southwards towards Salamanca.
   In 1065 came the reign of Alfonso VI, heraled as the father of modern Iberia.  When his father died, he took the throne of León. Using a combination of war and intruige, he seized the thrones of his two brothers and declared his personal holy war on the fractured Muslim Kingdoms, setting Cordóba as his prize.
   Alfonso VI showed his ruthlessness at the Seige of Toledo. Upon making it inside the walls, he ordered his soldiers to mount his catapults upon the walls and continued to shower the city in projectiles for another day before advancing into the city.  In later battles, some Muslim outposts surrendered upon his arrival, fearing his ruthlessness and the safety of their populous.
   In 1089, Alfonso's army reached the walls of Cordobá.  For 20 days, the army reigned projectiles down on then the richest city in Europe, however, supplies were running dangerouly low, due to hit and run attacks on his supply train.  Then, on the 21st day, his forces managed to seize the walls of the city. However, from there, he ordered oil poured down from the walls into the streets, then set the city aflame. It is said that the smoke could be seen from Paris and the fire shown brighter than the sun that night.  Once the dust settled, hardly more than rubble and smoldered brick remained of the once most sophisticated city in Europe.
  Alfonso managed to capture Sevilla in 1104, his empire reaching now from the Bay of Biscay to the Mediterranean. He also cemented his family claims in Portugal and Aragon, which would prove priceless in the reign of Isabella the Catholic.
  Because of his rampant destruction againt the Muslim kingdoms, many of the infrastructure and population base in the south was destroyed, while the cities in the north flourished from Moorish gold.  This imbalance of power still stands today.  However, Alfonso's descendents did not live up to his greatness, and for 3 centuries the Iberian throne dealt with petty civil wars and incompetent kings.  However, in 1281 the University of Salamanca was founded and in 1342 the Capital moved from León to Salamanca.
 
Imperial Spain
   In 1474, Isabella the Catholic inherited the throne of the Castilla and León. Through a marriage with King Ferdinand II of Aragon, she ensured the kingdoms unified for the future Empire, effectively doubling it' size.  However, Isabella still had rough times ahead of her.  In 1475, her brother Alfonso crossed into Spain in his war for the throne. However, with the reinforcement troops from her husband in Aragon, she managed to take the war to Portugal.  Through 1478, she seized Portuguese territory and had decisive victories. In 1478, she turned down critical African territory for seizing her claim on the Portuguese throne.
 With almost the entirety of Iberia under their control, the Catholic monarchs had essentially assured the entirety of the peninsula for their descendents. In 1492, the Spanish Monarchs conquered the final Muslim outpost in Granada, ending more then 700 years of their occupation.
  For the next hundred and fifty years, the unified Iberian Empire expanded throught the Mediterranean and later Europe, including Southern France and Italy. In the reign of Charles I and Phillip II, Spanish Monarchs reigned on the Hasburg thrones.  However, with many inbred monarchs and civil wars, the Iberian power beganed to wane in the 1700's, especially with growing military strength of the French.  The Empire gradually came overstretched in its own home territory, which led in 1743 to the splitting off of the semi-autonomous kingdoms Andalusia and Aragon. This overstretching has also caused, in the lesser populated and mountainous regions of the Empire, large amounts of mostly ungoverned land.
  Now comes a pivitol age in the nations history. Will it expand West, for the virginal lands of the West Indies? Or will it expand into the crowded political scene of Western Europe? It is all in the hands of Isabel III, Empress of Iberia.

Warrior, I'm not a mod, but your Zones of Control are just a bit off. While the average number of pixels in every zone is 750, you have two that are slightly smaller than usual and one that is slightly larger. Because each of your cities starts with 3 million population, each ZoC needs to have 750 pixels exactly (or less, I suppose); you need to change things around a bit so all of them are equally-sized.

That seemed to amuse the northman. "I want to live forever in a land where summer lasts a thousand years. I want a castle in the clouds where I can look down over the world. I want to be six-and-twenty again. When I was six-and-twenty I could fight all day and fuck all night. What men want does not matter.

"Winter is almost upon us, boy. And winter is death. I would sooner my men die fighting for the Ned's little girl than alone and hungry in the snow, weeping tears that freeze upon their cheeks. No one sings songs of men who die like that. As for me, I am old. This will be my last winter. Let me bathe in Bolton blood before I die. I want to feel it spatter across my face when my axe bites deep into a Bolton skull. I want to lick it off my lips and die with the taste of it on my tongue."

Capital City: Izella
Government Type: Confederacy, there's a president who has limited power
Economic System: Capitalism
Leader Name: President Victor
Ruling Political Faction: The Dixiecrat Party
History:

The Original people of the Imericun Federation came from the northern areas of the continent Imericu (Canada) and migrated south after the harsh cold weather of the little ice age forced. One group went west, and formed what is today The Golden Island (Soon to be Boggerm's nation), and the other group went east, to form the Imericun Federation. There was a peaceful 85 years after these two nations formed, and an alliance between Golden Island and The Imericun federation. Soon, though, things fell apart..

The Imericuns proposed that they completely abolish the idea of a state (like the USA's states). Immediately afterwards the Golden Island broke their alliance, due to the ruling party taking power, but it only boosted the current turmoil in the I.F. the Southerners, after about 4 months of debating in their courthouses across the country, decided to secede, forming the Confederation of Hartland. An Imericun general, Mac Mcmillan, refused to abandon Fort Macillian in the center of the country. 2 weeks later, the Hartlandians Open fire on Fort Macillian, causing the Imericun Federation, now known as the Northern Union (Caesar15), to declare war..

So far no battle has taken place yet, but each nation has been readying it's military for about 3 weeks. It is unclear who's side the Golden Island will take, or if they take a side at all.

Nation Name: The Golden Island
National Flag:
Spoiler:
Zones of Control and Claims:
Spoiler:
Capital City: Las Osevaidez
Government Type: Noble Rebpublic (Chieftians)
Economic System: Capitalism-ish. Native equivalent
Leader Name: Fu'Ke'Thet'
Ruling Political Faction:
History: When the Imericum people left northern Canada the group split off into two groups. One went east to form the Imericum Federation and the other went west, forming The Golden Island. The Golden Island settled into a in area mostly composed of a coastal semi desert and a high desert, radically different from the preferred northern tundra. The Clan split into three distinct areas ruled by a council of chieftains from the many tribes that made up the Golden Island. In the early 1600's there was a large amount of fighting between the tribes as the chiefs competed for resources due to constant heatwaves and blights which destroyed many crops pushing the tribes to the west to fish in the ocean. A written language was developed in this period to help control rationing of food, although several tribes developed different syntax causing much confusion. A Noble Republic was put into effect following several chiefs abusing their power. In 1753 The nobles elected 'Lo'Lul'Nop to rule on cases where the chiefs could not agree. in 1769 The Golden Tribe went and searched out their sister clan and found the Imericun and quickly joined together in a loose alliance. The vast distance meant news traveled slowly but the alliance continued until "Fu'Ke'Thet became the head chief, separating the two clans once again.
