I decided to limit this to just Europe so that its more compact, which would mean more interactions with other players and because there won't be as much players as lets say on /int/, the entire world would be too spacious. Not only that, but Europe is just made for border disputes, wars, and tension. Also because you can only post one image at a time, so post your flag onto the map to identify who you are

>The Monarch is the head of state, with the Prime Minister serving under them. The monarch actually has considerable power and can overrule laws and will do if they think its not best for their country. The prime minister deals a lot with domestic affairs, along with the Assembly House, the legislative arm. Currently, there is 5 parties in parliament, the People's Party, the Democratic Conservatives, the National Alliance, the Party of the Flower, and the New Frontier
Peoples Party: The main centre left-wing party
Democratic Conservatives: The main centre right wing party (current ruling)
National Alliance: The minor right party
Party of the Flower: The minor left wing paty
New Frontier: The main centre party (current ruling party), much like Macron, they focus heavily on neoliberalism with moderate social views

>It started off as 5 feudal states, each led by warlords before the feudal lord of Rijan Mae, conquered all the land under his rule and formed Najerbi. For most of its rule, it was an absolute monarch state, where the king was the sole ruler. however, after the Flower Rebellion, an uprising for democratic ideals which was crushed, more reforms were enacted that included a parliament. However, unlike most countries with a monarch, this one has actual political power, and thus less liked (must still mostly liked) compared to the other monarchs. Through alliances, and treaties, it has been able to not be invaded and get into major conflicts.
>It is not the most impressive military compared to the superpowers, however with regional powers, it can succeed if led correctly. It has a decent amount of 21st century tech, however, a portion of it is still from the late 20th century.
>It is not fully industrialized yet, still relying on the export of raw material as it's main part of its economy. It also has a strong agricultural scene, which it uses for both domestic and foreign revenue.
>The current currency is the Nii
>Overall, the foreign policy is that they don't really have border, in the sense that anyone can come in, however you do need you passport for flights. They are generally neutral to all conflicts. They try to get by using words rather than weaponry.
>The current government, a coalition of the Democratic Conservatives, and New Frontier, are working on modernizing the country even more and trying to get it integrated into the global trade that it can gain more investment funds. They are starting this off by trying to get IMF loans, which forces the ruling government to begin the process of austerity.

Anyone know if it is possible to find a link to the archive of this same thread but from Bunkerchan? I described my nation in detail there. For now, a very quick rundown:
>Name: Baltic People's Union (Baltijos Liaudies Sąjunga)
>Political system: One-Party Democratic Socialist Federative Republic
>Head of State: Chairman of the Presidium of the Supreme Council
>Capital: Kernavė
>Official Languages: Lithuanian, Polish, Latvian, Estonian, Yiddish
>Unofficial Languages: Belarusian, Ukrainian, Russian
>Ethnic and Religious composition:
>Lithuanian, Polish, Latvian and Estonian Republics are populated mostly by their respectful ethnicity. Jews form a large portion of the population in larger cities. A Belarusian ethnic minority populates South-Eastern rural areas of Lithuanian Republic, and a similar minority of Ukrainians populate the southern border of the Polish Republic.
>History: TLDR a backwards feudal power that has fallen to a socialist revolution, which then almost collapsed in the late 90's.
>Military capabilities: A sizable force, once well-maintained, which has fallen behind in terms of equipment over the last 2 decades. Possesses around 20 nuclear warheads, however most of these are in an unmaintained state.
>Economy: Almost fully-industrial state. Some less advanced rural areas remain, which don't posses the most advanced infrastructure.
>Currency: Baltas

Anonymous Refugee  152

>>151
>Foreign policy: Strict emigration and immigration control. Wants to expand influence over its neighbors and bring them into its sphere.
>Future Goals of the Government: Finalize the economic recuperation from the crisis in the 90's. Finish political reforms to curtail the power of entrenched Party elites. Expand sphere of influence. Pursue advancements in the field of electronics. If situation allows, export the revolution.
>Average Life of a Citizen: Universal social programs apply for many sections of life - housing, education, healthcare, transportation. Full-employment policy. Civil rights are relatively free, however there is are restrictions on foreign produce and cultural pieces. Restricted political freedoms. Most forms of opposition to the current system are punished more or less. Life quality is bellow first-world levels, but not impoverished. There is still a lack of some consumer goods, however less than a decade prior. Access to goods such as cars is limited. Around 43% possess access to the internet, which is cut off from a wide amount of foreign interaction, instead replaced with local platforms.

>name
English Channel State
>political system
One-party presidential republic. The constitution of the English Channel officially asserts the rights of the people to form political parties, but in reality, the ruling Council for Peace and Progress (CPP) heavily restricts this freedom. The country is a unitary centralist state.
>head of state
Abraham Anderson is the mysterious figure at the head of the CPP who rarely makes public appearances. Most day-to-day political and government work seems to be done by his top ministers and advisors. Some speculate Mr. Anderson is only a figurehead who has no real power, and some ask whether he even exists.

>history
The English Channel State was created when Jews fled the European mainland and settled on the islands of Jersey and Guernsey, two islands then still under the control of the British Crown. Following the war, the refugee population far outweighed the native population and soon noticed that political autonomy was in its best interests. Thus began the formation of the "Council for Peace and Progress", the future ruling party of what would become the English Channel State, among Jewish intellectual circles who envisioned a safe haven for victims of war and persecution and a final bastion of Jewish life in Europe.
>military capabilities
The country mainly relies on good diplomatic ties to its neighbours to insure its sovereignty and defend its interests. Due to its small size and insignificant population, the English Channel State does not have an official military force. Security is guaranteed only by two institutions: The English Channel State Police and the English Channel State Coast Guard.
The government is aware of an increasing threat of radicalisation and terrorism, especially within its native English population, and has therefore invested in police militarisation in recent years.

Anonymous Refugee  605

>economy (how industrialised it is, etc.)
The economy of the English Channel State exists in a state-capitalist system, where the state has stakes in all three major sectors of the economy: Fishing, tourism, and the service sector. The state-owned canned fish brand "''Guernsey Shore''", which exports all over the world, is by far the country's largest employer and responsible for 57% of the total fishing output of the country. Over the last two decades, the government has sought to diversify the economy and invest more into the service sector. The two largest cities in the country, Saint Peter Port and Saint Helier, have transformed into bustling cities with towering high-rise offices. Still, fishing remains the main source of income for most citizens.
>currency
The Channel Pound (C£) is pegged to the British pound.
>foreign policy (immigration, etc.)
The country is generally open to immigrants who are educated and talented in specific fields, but will also embrace refugees with open arms if necessary. Humanitarian aid is a big part of the ECS's foreign policy.
The English Channel State upholds especially amicable ties with the Baltic People's Union due to its shared Jewish culture. The ECS is heavily invested in the economic development of the BPU, routinely sending advisors and experts into the country to mentor economic development projects.
Being unaware of its existence, the ECS has no relations with Xininnizi.
Najerbi is the English Channel State's largest trading partner, with the ECS importing most of its raw materials as well as lots of food products from here. The government maintains a strategic partnership with Najerbi that is mainly founded on economic interests.

Anonymous Refugee  606

>future goals of the government
For the coming period, the government has outlined a plan to develop and increase the country's position in science and education. The St. Brelade Polytechnic, founded in 1997, is the country's top-ranking university and has quickly gained international renown in its short history for producing some of the most talented business managers and consultants. The government has just approved a budget of C£3,000,000 for official scholarships at the university along with heavy subsidies for its continued growth and development.
Despite no real threat for the security of the state existing, the government is still expanding the state police force and especially focussing on developing anti-terror capabilities.

While I'm at it...
King Ukkabikabi VII endorses expeditions to all cardinal directions
One morning, the king of Xininnizi woke up and told his wife (Queen Mibaisunu) that he had a dream where his ancestors gathered around him and told him to send boats to the north, east, south and west in search of other lands and even people outside the island. The queen was really into the idea, and so it was decreed that the island's four most experienced sailors should lead fleets of four ships each (a total of 20 people per fleet). The king's decree would've been meaningless if the sailors hadn't agreed, but they thought "why not?" and went for it.

So far two of them reached land, one in the west and one in the east. Both sent one ship back to report to the king, informing him that while they had found land, they hadn't yet encountered any people. The ships then set sail back to where the rest of their fleets had docked for the time being.

The fleets sent north and south haven't yet reached land. It's unknown whether Xininnizi boat-building technology is sufficient for such long voyages, or if they'll sink before they do...

The current government of Najerbi, known as the Grey Coalition, are currently in talks of purchasing the Peninsula which was taken away from another maritime kingdom a long time ago. However, times have not been well to the kingdom and so Najerbi has taken this opportunity to snatch the peninsula back from them. They however, don't want to cause any scenes from any other countries, so they try and use diplomatic approaches to getting it back, which they plan to use to make a better, new official port city

1. >5: Talks continue with a high chance of them not being able to purchase the peninsula
2. 5-10:Talks continue with both sides at a stalemate on the issue.
3. 10-15: Najerbi is able to purchase the peninsula at a fair price and talks will continue on the process

Expanded details on BPU:

POLITICAL SYSTEM
>Council Republic
>The electorate votes for local candidates from the VSKP (All Union Communist Party) for the ST (Council of the Union) lower house and the TT (Council of Nationalities) upper house, which forms the BLSAT (Supreme Council of Baltic Peoples Union) - the highest legislative branch of government. BLSAT in turn appoints the Council of Ministers and the Premier of the Union, who act as the executive branch.
From 1999 on, many measures limiting the individual influence of party officials and BLSAT councilmen were implemented, including term limits and right of recall, but most importantly a process that would choose the nominees to the elections by lot, as well as a yearly lottery that invites new party members which currently is the only way to join the VSKP.
>BPU is a federation, composed of Lithuanian, Latvian, Estonian and Polish council republics.

RELIGION
>A good segment of Lithuanian population is Orthodox, however due to the earlier anti-religious policies that lasted up to 1958 and due to the current trend towards secularism, just as much identify as irreligious. Practicing Hebrews are common in urban Jewish communities, and Catholicism and Protestantism being present in Poland, Latvia, Estonia and West Prussia.

EARLY HISTORY
11th Century:
>An ambitious duke from Kernavė unifies the Lithuanian highland (Aukštaityja).
>With the death of Yaroslav the Wise and fracture of the Kievan Rus, the dukes of Aukštaityja lead an incursion into Belarus, ending with the principalities of the Belarusian lands swearing fealty to the Aukštaityja Grand Duke.
>First Orthodox preachers enter Lithuanian lands, but don't find much success.
12th Century:
>The Duchy of Aukštaityja expands west into the Lithuanian lowland (Žemaityja). Most defeated dukes swear fealty to the Grand Duke. The realm begins calling it self Grand Duchy of Lithuania.
13th Century:
>Livonian Crusade conquers the Estonian and northern Baltic tribes. A small crusader expedition to Lithuania gets ambushed and routed. No further hostilities erupt with the Livonian Order.
>Prussian Crusade causes existential crisis for the Prussian tribes. Western Prussia becomes the staging ground for the Teutonic Order. The eastern part pleads for help form the duke of Lithuania, who promises aid if they swear fealty, which the Prussians accept. A conflict breaks out with the Teutons, which ends indecisively.

DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS
<Najerbi
>BPU sees Najerbi as a slightly backwards neutral regional power. A limited amount of trade exists between the two states. Occasionally this, along with the lax border policy of Najerbi, has lead to some issues with defections from the BPU, however this hasn't caused any major incidents.

Economic development help is appreciated, especially concerning the IT field specialist assistance.

OH SHIT THERE'S PEOPLE
The western Xininnizi fleet, who had camped at the coast, suddenly saw people approaching one day. As soon as they did, they went into a state of panic and packed up their camp and sailed south along the coast until they no longer saw any sign of human activity. Then, they set up a new camp at the tip of a small peninsula. They forgot that one of the reasons they'd set out on the voyage was to find other people, but by the time they remembered that, they had already set up camp. They had no idea they'd earlier camped in the Paganic Empire's territory, and still don't know it even exists. Feeling shameful over their panic, they didn't send a ship back to inform the king of their very brief encounter with foreigners.

Three members of the crew have developed depression and anxiety as a result of the realisation that the land they've been sailing along is vastly larger than their home island, thinking "this is the edge of the world" since they believe the Earth is flat.

Meanwhile, the northern and southern fleets have still not reached land yet.
Taxamuzi Colony is established
The eastern fleet has continued exploring the island they found and more people have moved in, creating the Taxamuzi Colony. They haven't yet realised it's bigger than the island they've called home...

23 killed, over 100 wounded in terrorist attack
On Tuesday, a bomb that was placed on a bus detonated in Saint Helier's town centre in a terrorist attack that killed 23 citizens and wounded 108 others. Twenty passengers were killed immediately and three more died later at the hospital.
An antisemitic motive for the attack was quickly identified. A group known as the "National Freedom Party", an underground French ultranationalist organisation active in the English Channel State, claimed responsibility for the attack. The group released a statement claiming the act was to retaliate against so-called "Jewification" of the islands, which "belongs to the children of France", according to the group.

70 homes raided, undisclosed number detained in police "show of force" on Alderney
Residents of St Anne got a rough awakening on Wednesday morning after tactical police units busted down doors and detained scores of citizens throughout the town. Alderney is one of the five main islands of the English Channel State and the only one with a French majority population. In a press conference, the Chief General of Police, Louise Kurtzmann, mentioned that police had "definite leads" suggesting that "a sophisticated criminal network" exists in the area. The number of citizens that have been detained by police has not been disclosed.

PM Andersen makes TV appearance condemning attack, promises "we will do everything to ensure citizen's security"
PM Abraham Andersen addressed the public in a rare intermission on television regarding recent events. It was a short broadcast with a strong statement: "The government and people of the English Channel State will not tolerate terrorism." It was announced that the total budget of the state security apparatus would be increased by 200% and capabilities of law enforcement will be "drastically increased where necessary" as a part of "temporary measures to guarantee the cohesion and safety of our country".

Citizen's groups express concern over increase of police power
Perhaps the recently decreed changes to the state's budget and to police powers have been warranted in the face of recent events, however some groups among the population are concerned with this development. Some newspapers have published rousing criticisms of the government policy, which have been accused of leading to the volatile situation in the first place by paying too little attention to the needs and rights of national minorities. Student groups in different universities across the country have staged pickets warning of "creeping authoritarianism" and "fear mongering".
Other voices by politicians have decried the protests as being "insensitive" toward the victims of tuesday's attack.

Terrorist leader to be tried for heinous criminal acts
Jules de Moulinsart (61), known under the codename Montlouis, was among the people detained in raids on Alderney. He's now been identified as one of the masterminds behind the extensive underground criminal network that exists on Alderney and beyond. He is facing life imprisonment for charges of conspiracy to commit murder in 23 counts and numerous other charges. Police and state officials are expecting justice to be delivered swiftly.

A glance at the full extent of French underground terrorist network
The raids on Alderney have uncovered the full extent of the criminal happenings within our islands for the first time. It was revealed that a sinister group known as the "New French Army" is operating as the military arm of the extremist National Freedom Party with "extensive ties" to the European mainland, as described by a new report released by state police. The new information includes evidence for extensive smuggling of illegal arms, ammunition and explosive material between the New French Army and elements of the Mulieres Operarios Exercitus, a militia group active in the war-torn Paganic Empire. While the actual goals and motives of these groups are unclear, it is believed that more terrorist attacks would have followed had the state not cracked down on the situation. It has caused a public uproar and a call for the government to take swift measures on the international stage.

Letter to the editor: Military struggles of Paganic Empire a call to action for European governments
The following letter was written by a citizen to the editor of The Saint Helier Times
A deteriorating situation in the Paganic Empire has made security in the rest of Europe more volatile, with insurgent groups demonstrably possessing extensive networks and cells throughout Europe. Therefore, leaders of European nations cannot afford to look on while our neighbour descends into civil war; looking away from the conflict will drag us right down with them. Najerbi can no longer rely on its policy of neutrality and diplomacy to guarantee the security of its citizens, but must rather commit to ensuring peace by taking appropriate measures. A unanimous and clear response to terrorism is needed, while at the same time efforts must be made to strengthen democracy in the country.
Our government is in a uniquely good position to facilitate an agreement to this end between Najerbi and the Baltic People's Union. We must come together and aid the struggling people of the Paganic Empire to restore peace and security to our continent.

Deputy foreign minister attends Najerbi monarch's birthday celebrations
The deputy Foreign Minister of the English Channel State, Mr. René Demander, has flown to Rijan to attend celebrations of the monarch's 73rd birthday. His Excellency Cairo Rijan met his distinguished guests not just to celebrate the occasion, but to celebrate the friendly and productive partnership European countries enjoy with each other. The event was a great success, apart from a small incident where a member of the minister's entourage accidentally spilled a glass of wine on the monarch's son Ali.

Exploration continues
The Xininnizi fleets sent to the north and south have begun to noticeably drift from their courses, but they don't really care if it's not exactly north and south as long as they're going somewhere. Neither has reached land yet, but they catch enough fish to survive (because of their long history of inbreeding and living in an environment with little to no fresh water, they've developed a genetic resistance to high salinity and rudimentary desalination techniques are sufficient for them to drink seawater).
King Ukkabikabi VII has another dream...
The king had a dream where he saw Xininni people living in faraway lands in prosperity and himself sitting on a shiny throne with a hundred concubines. Following this dream, he encouraged people to have as many children as possible and declared that he "did his part" by having sex with twenty different women (in exchange for the title of "lady" and five free fish per month for a year); his wife was a bit suspicious, but reluctantly accepted the explanation that it was only for the purpose of procreation and making the dream come true faster.
Colonies grow
The western fleet finally sent a ship back to inform of their discovery of land. Fifty people joined them on their way back to the new and exciting land. One man went insane on the way, screaming "there's no land!" before jumping off the ship. There was a rescue attempt, but it's assumed he drowned.

Meanwhile, Taxamuzi Colony grows as more people move in and children are born there. The crown prince relocated there with his wife and children.

Peninsula Secured
Najerbi has finally acquired the peninsula from the country down South and has welcomed the new citizens its acquired with a celebration. Luckily due to its closeness with Najerbi and its recent alienation from the other country, the citizens should have an easy time assimilating. Not only that, but the current government is starting right away on the creation of a new port city, having everything pre-planned beforehand as they were 95% sure the deal would go through. However due to the creation of this new port city, recent outrage has occurred in the old port city of Murujn, where due to crumbling infrastructure, the port will shut down to make way for the new port until it can be repaired to modern standards. Because of this, the dock workers have gone on strike to prevent the shut down.

Najerbi is very aware of the situation between the Paganic Empire and MOE. While no terror attacks have occurred in Najerbi, thanks to the presence of military always active as well as counter intelligence, the government has noticed an increase in captured suspects that seem to have links back to the MOE. Currently it wishes to not interfere with another countries affairs, not only due to its more passive foreign policy, but because the current government is more focused on domestic policy. However, if the BPU & and the ECS agree to an intervention for humanitarian purposes, then Najerbi would be obliged to help

Towards the Paganic Empire,
The Holy State of Najerbi is concerned about the recent surge in terrorist and radical activity occurring within the Empire. Having neutralized terrorist of its own, Najerbi is frightened that any MOE terrorist would try to reradicalize the former terrorist that lay within its borders of Najerbi.

De Moulinsart re-emerges in Bordeaux, New French Army captures first city
Appearing on a livestream surrounded by armed men, the commander of the New French Army announced the capture of the town of Bordeaux. "We are taking over this lawless land and returning it to our ideal, our dream; let the peoples of Europe and of all the world know that there is no future without a free and united French state. We are not terrorists, we are not criminals, we are our own nation and we are building it for the sake of our children and seeking friendship with all the good decent and upright people in the world. If you come to us with war we will give you war in return, and if you come to us with peace we will give you peace in return."
"Our homeland and its children will once again be one, united under one banner waving from Brest to Marseille."
The New French Army is now no longer a loose terrorist militia, but are in fact, surprisingly, creating a state. It's estimated that it has between 2000 and 4000 fighters, most of them new recruits from the French countryside who had followed a recruitment call toward the so-called Free French Republic, a state that Montlouis' militia seems to aim to create in Europe. The group took over the strategic city very suddenly and has now established its headquarters there, a surprising move that nobody had expected as no one was aware where Montlouis escaped to or what he was doing. It's yet unknown how the other European nations will react.

Encounter with Paganic Empire imminent?
The colony on the peninsula (now called Ubimuxi Colony) had an incident where fishermen saw what looked to be a travelling group of people who were clearly not Xininni. It seemed that they noticed the Xininni fishermen, but neither group made any attempt to communicate. However, could this be about to change...?

So its immediately calls its reserves to go and squash the terrorist before they make significant ground. It also calls for an air raid on their territory.

ECS welcomes military assistance from Najerbi
The ECS government appreciates the contingent of 3000 troops currently underway from Najerbi to be stationed on the islands. However, experts warn of the possibility the FFR might try to intercept or attack the naval convoy during its journey through the Bay of Biscay.
The incoming troops will be the first military personnel stationed on the island since the end of the Second World War, signaling the European continent's further descent into war and chaos. It is hoped that stability may return to Europe through security cooperation.

ECS Coast Guard acquires four Castle-class patrol ships

200 killed, over 1000 wounded in 'atrocious' air raids on Bordeaux
The Royal Najerbi Air Forces have carried out bombing raids on the city of Bordeaux which had been captured by the so-called New French Army. However, instead of hitting military targets, it seems as though the planes targeted urban population centers and civilian targets. French terrorist leader Montlouis said about the bombings: "You are the ones who label us terrorist, yet you massacre our people in such a cowardly manner (...) We will avenge every innocent victim of your campaign. (...) If you do not cease your attacks immediately, then I hope you are prepared for the consequences.".

The way forward is to be accountable and support the people of France who are suffering under the threat of war and violence."

Free French Republic makes push to Pyrenees, captures more coastal and inland territory
The Pyrenees are an attractive strategic target for the FFR as it may use the mountains to its defensive advantage. Experts are also predicting that the FFR might make a push into the sovereign territory of the Paganic Empire, which partially lies in the territory the FFR claims to be "natural French land". However, it is more likely they will first establish themselves in unclaimed territory, aiming to complete the conquest of the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region before building up more forces for ground invasions.
There is some hope among the surrounding states that the NFA may end up getting bogged down as the territory it captures reaches the limit of what it can defend and manage. The FFR has grown in size rapidly, from taking over one city to controlling an area of now nearly 30 000 square kilometers with a population of over 5 million.

The Najerbi government is in a panic. They try their best to make sure the citizens of Najerbi did not hear of the disastrous air raids. They begin to question what had happened that caused such a spectacular failure. They finally pin it down to a miscalculations by the Air Force, due to the sudden rush to act on this crisis, they had used barley fresh pilots to man the planes and hoped they would be good enough before veterans were available. This however seemed to have been a grave mistake, and it hurt the war effort. The government tries to quietly reprimand the Air Force and strips all pilots in that air raid of their duties. The government is still antsy about not conducting air raids, so they carefully select some more experienced pilots to air raid surrounding areas so that the FFA can't expand any more. They EMPHASIZE infrastructure like roads and bridges that will hinder progress and allow for time for the troops to come in. They also emphasize to target areas specifically away from civilians.

The Battle of Limoges
THE New French Army is besieging the city of Limoges, aiming to take control of the strategically and economically important city of 100 000 inhabitants. The advance of the militia has been hindered by precision strikes by the Holy Najerbi Air Forces, which has targeted infrastructure such as roads, railroads and bridges and also hit the insurgents' equipment and personnel directly, resulting in high losses among the NFA (Targets of the strikes shown in red). The airport to the northwest of the city has also been hit severely, so that the militants wouldn't be able to use it.
The airstrikes have significantly slowed down the insurgent's advance over the Vienne river, which it needs to gain access to the city's urban centre. However, it is predicted that the NFA takeover of Limoges is only a matter of time, as there are no significant ground forces opposing the militia.
The militants have managed to shoot down a Najerbian F-4 Phantom II fighter-bomber plane using a MANPAD in the south-west of Limoges. The aircraft had been flying low near the village of Mérignac when it was hit by a surface to air missile. The pilot managed to eject from the plane and was later captured by the militants; it is expected the airman's capture will be a significant bargaining chip for the FFR.

French militia manufacturing chemical weapons
The NFA is expanding its arsenal by incorporating production of weaponized fluorine gas, the terrorist state's leadership boasted in a shocking announcement. The chemical agent is highly toxic to humans and has similar effects to chlorine gas. It is yet unknown how the militia plans to employ the chemical weapon, but it is deemed highly likely that they will be used against civilians of European countries, although the terrorists claim they want to use the weapon as a "deterrent".

Experts: Najerbi at high risk of terrorism
While the Holy State has strengthened its internal security apparatus and taken appropriate measures to ensure the safety of its people, the recent military campaign against French insurgents have put the nation in the crosshairs of terrorism.

The northern Xininni fleet, which had at this point been sailing east instead, reached land. The new colony was named Tulanu Xininnizi ("Old Xininnizi") because the king had a dream where he was told by the spirits of his ancient ancestors that the next landmass reached would be the ancestral homeland of the Xininni people.

It is where we came from, and as such it is where we must return. Now is the time to fulfil our destiny! We have the opportunity to reclaim the land of our great ancestors. Let us join together and do so!
