    Home | Wurld | Salvia | Business | Politics | Church | Opinion | Tech | Entertainment l Sports Ministry of the Interior: Gaullo-Era Natalist Policies ‘A Huge Success' Amidst Concilio Renewal Vote Aquhate was interviewed by several reporters in a press conference Thursday Minister of the Interior Renato Aquhate discussed Gaullo-Era natalist policies with reporters in a press conference yesterday as questions were raised in the Concilio Populi as to whether to retain them or not. The policies, which include tax rebates for families with more than two children, further investment in childcare services and education, and paid maternity and paternity leave, have cost the Salvian government over a billion dollars since its introduction in 2002. The policies were first introduced by President Kahalo Gaullo in an effort to combat dropping fertility rates, which was in decline since the 70s as more women entered the workforce and economic decline meant younger couples were less confident in being able to afford becoming a family. The decline carried over into the 21st century and was one of the major problems of Gaullo’s administration, alongside domestic disputes and allegations of corruption. Economic success under Adajio and Saulius alongside these natalist policies has led to an increase in the fertility rate, from 1.7 children per woman in 2000 to 2.0 in 2010, with current estimates for 2020 being somewhere around 2.25 or 2.3. The apparent success of the policies has led to several representatives questioning the need for such policies, with a bill coming up to vote in the Concilio yesterday. After the vote, Aquhate came out to reporters and spoke on the policies, saying they were “a huge success” and would prove “incredibly beneficial to Salvia, as they already have been.” When questioned about the cost, Aquhate was quoted as saying, “We are in the midst of Salvia’s greatest economic expansion since the Industrial Revolution. We’re confident we can afford the money this has cost, not even counting the numerous benefits this gives us.” Aquhate even suggested further increasing investment in education and childcare services as a result of increased government revenue. The Concilio Populi voted to maintain the policies with a comfortable 171-43 in favor of keeping the policies, setting another 5 year goal for 2025. Analysis Mark Hana - NSBN economic correspondent Youth employment and participation rates seem to support Aquhate’s claims of benefits, with increases in both categories from previous years. Unemployment amongst youth in particular has seen great improvement, declining from 16.1% in 2010 to just 9.6% in July 2020. While this itself was not caused by these policies, the straight number of employed youth - around 1.6 million - is certainly larger than if the policies had not been in effect as the youth population has increased. An increase in employed youth means both more taxable money and increased consumer spending, paying back some of the expenses incurred by natalist policies. As these youth become older and find higher paying and more permanent jobs, it is hoped that the government will turn a sort of profit over the years while maintaining a healthy Salvian populace. It is also hoped that the increase in education will result in a more intelligent generation of engineers, scientists, and the like that could further propel Salvia towards success. While that is just speculation, as of 2020, the policies have so far accomplished the goals of President Gaullo.

    Teopac of Foreign Affairs Meztlitlaca's foreign affairs is primarily handled by the Teopac (Department) of Foreign Affairs. The TFA was first established in late 1934 under the South Paluvian government, in which the TFA saw limited use outside of Fulgistan, Shffahkia, and neighbouring nation states. After the overthrow of the South Paluvian government and the formation of the Dominions of Metztlitlaca in 2005, the Teopac of Foreign Affairs began to see increased use as the newly formed Metztlitlaca moved away from partial isolationism. Today, the TFA maintains numerous embassies and consulates across the world as part of Metztlitlaca's goal of relevancy. Metztlitlaca does not shy away from rubbing shoulders with regimes most countries would not want to be seen publicly interacting with outside of condemnations. Metztlican lax foreign approach to forging friendships - coupled with its own controversial baggage - does put Metztlitlaca on the same step of the controversial ladder as places like Faramount, outer Ceris nations, and some of the poorer Europan nations. A nation that has a positive relationship on the map shown below does not necessarily mean that Metztlitlaca and the foreign nation are public about their relationship, and/or that the population of the foreign nation or Metztlitlaca perceive the other as a friendly nation or ally (think the USA and Saudi Arabia). Most of Metztlitlaca's friendships are based on economics rather then any cultural or historic connections outside of Shffahkia or LAANN states. All letters not to a specific embassy should be directed to the Overseer Priestess of Metztlican Foreign Affairs, Kwājauh Kh. Map of Metztlitlalio foreign relationships with other nation states.

    Second to last update post on this first draft, the revision process will begin after the next post, maybe in the next post. No culture write up since I just wasn't able to accomplish much today. I blame work even though it is my off day. 1938 - Chester Filmean fashions himself as the new Head of Government of Fearannteth 1938 - Filmean orders the arrest of protestors angered by his ascension. 1939 - Protest leaders are executed publicly to be made an example of while the regime releases the vast majority of the protestors arrested. 1939 - The Great Dominion Declaration suspends all parties except the Old Dominion, making Fearannteth and Cassieshire one-party states. Queen Ceit dissents and begins to lose her freedom. 1944 - Queen Ceit is completely isolated from the public by Chester Filmean stoking backlash from the populace. An ultimatum is issued to Ceit: abdicate and leave or face potential consequences. Ceit chose the former and fled to West Fearanntetha and later Oyus. 1948 - The Royalist Union, a group sympathetic to Queen Ceit and the Kingdom, is snuffed out by Filmean's secret police task force. The success of a secret police becomes a lasting legacy of the Filmean regime. 1950 - The Filmean regime dissolves the autonomous regions in Cassieshire and declares an end to indigenous savagery. Police are sent to occupy these regions to ensure no attempts are made to separate. 1953 - The Fearann Institution of Civilization (FIC) is created by the National Council and facilities are built to reeducate and indoctrinate indigenous citizens to assimilate into Fearann society. 1956 - The FIC proposes the use of failed assimilations to be used as mentally broken cheap labor. Separate FIC facilities are constructed for this explicit purpose. In some cases, forced labor is sold internationally. 1959 - Filmean breaks the military down to a defensive border guard and naval fleet, appropriating the money saved to himself or the police. 1961 - The National Council spins off a sub-ministry that oversees mining activities and founds the Ministry of Mining Activities. The Ministry grants free license to many large mining industry corporations in the Fearann Tapatepelti mountains and begin rolling in a profit. 1966 - Chester Filmean appoints the Minister of Mininng Activities, Minister Piers Creag, as Priomhbeul, a deputy to the Priomhfearann as Filmean began to suffer ailments. ("Priomhbeul" also known literally as prime mouth in Alban.) 1968 - Piers Creag becomes the new Priomhfearann after Chester Filmean passes from health complications. He was 88. 1970 - After promising to phase out forced labor, Creag outlaws it overnight and creates an employment program for companies like Nova Thule, a prominent mining company based out of Thule, to be able to integrate the new costs of labor gradually with government assistance. 1972 - Creag builds upon Filmean's policing legacy by beginning to phase out publicly uniformed police officers and relying entirely on a silent and secret police force. Only police headquarters were permitted to be known to the public as precincts and other smaller offices were relocated and became hidden from public knowledge. 1975 - Piers Creag ends the Great Dominion Declaration, and parties are restored. Rights are also permitted to the indigenous if they assimilate successfully into Fearann society. 1982 - Creag invites Princess Millicent, the would be Queen, to return to Fearannteth with the promise of bringing the royal family back into politics. 1983 - Piers Creag dissolves the National Council and resigns his post as Priomhfearann, retiring in Oyus. Queen Millicent ascends the throne, restoring the monarchy. 1984 - Queen Millicent restores the original unicameral legislature, nixing the perversion of her brother's reform in having an upper house. The Royal Congress has elections to elect parties to a term lasting through 1990 and every 5 years afterwards. 1984 - The Reform Party returns to dominance with a majority in Congress once more, along with new parties joining the fray: the Christian Socialist Party, the Communist Party of Fearannteth, and the Christian Monarchist Party. 1986 - Rights are restored to all members of the indigenous community after being subjugated by the harsh policies of the National Council. Autonomous reservations are restored and seats allotted in Congress for their representation. The FIC is shut down and the creation of the Ministry of Indigenous Realms is created, to be elected by members of the indigenous community. 1992 - King Alastair V ascends the throne after the untimely passing of Queen Millicent. In this update, I expand on the last two points in my previous post, in which Fearannteth has a period of dictatorial rule. Undoubtedly there is some alarming policies in a more modern day setting than if they occurred in the earlier parts of its history. This also delves a little past the dictatorial era of Fearannteth by setting the stage a little of politics we will be seeing in present day. The next post will most certainly be what brings the first draft of Fearann history to present.

    Ah, my bad, I was basing my critique off the original post you made on the discord regarding central Alharu, so I assumed it would of been the same case on this draft as well. Ignore what I said about distance if that is the case, although I was certainly intrigued when you mentioned central Alharu in your original post.

    Yeah, i know ^^" that's why i posted the description of the terrorist group here, hoping to be reviewed and corrected/noticed from people who wants to partecipate but as i said, "modify it to your likings", so anyone can partecipate and be part of the rp or adapt it for being able to partecipate i can't put names etc if people don't give me the permission or else, that's why i just post the proposal and then if someone wants to partecipate will be welcome (other than having the possibility to see if that nation would fit in the rp ofc) D'oh xD i hoped for the 90s or 80s but it would be still cool for me though Here it's kinda weird .-. i mean: I don't see how it is feasible for your country in the 90s to be able to consistently fly/sail to the Alharun deserts Why i should fly/sail to the Alharun deserts in the 90s? .o. i never said that i would have partecipated to the Alharu War, given the fact that Anatea was / is pretty isolationist other than being mostly a pacific country Also i never specified that the war should be absolutely set in the desert x'D as well as fight a terrorist organisation. Well, using some examples, Italy was/is capable of transport troops over its borders, given the fact that was involved in the Somali Civil war, current Afghanistan War and even the Second Gulf War in the end my nation GDP is super similiar to the italian one, so i have the funds to being able to carry on military operations by sea/land/air almost anywhere in the world (of course places like Europa or Argis would be kinda hard to reach logistically, and like only one/two medium size military campaigns at the time). Even Portugal or other minor nations are still partecipating in mission at long distances around the world Oh, nice head up about Rihan, i could use it and about continentalism, yeah when Mauridiviah asked me if it was continentalism i googled it up and confirmed it was x'D so about that we're oke x''D In realty i literally changed almost everything about this rp for adapt it to Eurth's standards :0 for example in my ex region it was just a stupid anarchic terrorist organization with almost a pathetic ideology without basics, here instead i'm trying to create a good and characterized faction that is not the same "terrorist group" clichè (even because here we have high standards thank godness, there it was like "you want to do that? sure, we don't care"). Also in my ex region it was randomly spread around the world and it was born from literally nothing, here instead is just confined to Alharu and it was created after a war between some minor xenophobic nations, so they're justified about why they have some important equipment, they're numerous and even organized. I could fight instead of a terrorist group another nation,maybe a rogue one, problem is that i would be stuck in a longer war that Anatea wouldn't fight, given the fact that would be barely justified and also that would prevent other people from joining, cause they wouldn't care about a fight between 2 nations, instead a terrorist group is a severe threat to everyone :0 i'm canonically on the map of Eurth :c

    Teopac of History: The Raptor's Claws and the Lion's Jaws [1200 - 1860] Metztlitlaca is relatively unknown to the modern world. The only countries that ever give the fledgling nation any form of attention are those who had invested into the nation in its younger years. Seylos with it's port city of Kaseka; Fulgistan and Oyus with the League of Alharun and Aurelian Native Nations; Eulycea due to centuries of rivalry and conflicts. This wasn't always the case, there once was a time in Metztlican history where a predecessor nation to Metztlitlaca was one of the many major regional powers of its day. This golden era for southern Palu was under the banners of the Crescent Empire. The Crescent Empire called itself Īnetztli Tìkuo in the Old Metztlica dialect of Naxua,however it is often called Inetztlīk in the Modern Metaztlitlaca Dialect. It ruled it's territories from 1202 AD up until 1801 AD, spanning much of the southern Palu peninsula and into eastern Mesothalassa. Map of Geographic Locations Formation of the Crescent Empire: 1178 - 1202 AD The Crescent Empire was not pre-ordained nation that naturally rose up from its surroundings. It was a messy and complicated affair. Before the Crescent Empire there were thirty separate monarch states across modern day Metztlitlaca, each one vying for power and dominance over history. In the late 12th Century, the strongman of southern Palu were the Tepanizo. Found in western modern Metztlitlaca, the Tepanizo were fractured between 3 multicultural hegemonic monarch states with the largest, Kotlaxomizo, dominating the Metztlica ethnic group which at the time was only two thirds its modern geographic size. The reigning Archpriest - the leader of the religion of the Azlo people - had died several years ago and priesthood was in the midst of deciding his successor. The Kotlaxomizo had bribed or threatened any nations who could of been a threat to them from sending any of their own aristocracy to be possibly ordained as Archpriest. Instead Kotlaxomizo's monarch had his son and several of his vassal's send their sons and daughters to the Priesthood, threatening any Metztlica tribe who dared try to win the Archpriest title with burning down their villages. This was by Priesthood law considered illegal, but with no powerful nation to back them like in previous centuries they went along with it. One tribe however did not get the threat as the messenger had died on the way to them. The Atlahuica, the people of the valleys, were unaware of the scheme the Kotlaxomizo had planted and had sent their best to the contests. The title of Archpriest was earned by being the one to pass the numerous endurance, physical, and intellectual tests with the most success. Those sent must be between the ages of 15 and 19. The archpriest title cannot be worn by a head monarch of a nation, and thus monarch states tend to send high standing aristocrats from their capitals. Tribes did not have aristocracies, therefore most of the Metztlica tribes the Kotlaxomizo ordered to partake sent their most average boys and girls. The candidate the Atlahuica sent was nineteen year old Tapilchuacotl, Tapilchuacotl was born prematurely and missing his left arm from below the elbow so by all accounts and logic should of died, but he somehow persisted. Unable to use the bow and arrow he became proficient at the atlatl, also known as the spear-thrower. His skill was refined to a degree no one his age from his or the neighbouring tribes could match, with only the oldest and most experienced spear-throwers able to hit as consistently as he could. The aristocratic boy was not athletic nor proficient with tools and by the end of the tests had trailed behind Tapil. The Priesthood ordained Tapilchuacotl the new Archpriest. The Kotlaxomizo were furious at the Atlahuica and within weeks had burned down their villages and taken half of the village population to be killed at the Kotlaxomizo capital's temples. The other half fled to neighbouring tribe villages who pitied the Atlahuica. For over half a decade, the Priesthood and the Atlahuica were forming a coalition of Metztlica and other suppressed ethnic groups to overthrow the Kotlaxomizo monarch state. The resulting civil war took a little over a decade, resulting in the dissolution of the Kotlaxomizo monarch state. With the Kotlaxomizo monarch state dissolved, there was no clear successor, and the region would of collapsed back into anarchy as it had done every time a period of subjugation and hegemony ended, but Tapilchuacotl not wishing to further the cycle of violence instead come up with a new solution; a unified Metztlica state. Instead of a single tribe controlling others, all tribes of the Metztlica people would be equals. The Crescent Empire was officially established in 1202 AD with the unifying of the Metztlica tribes through diplomacy, peace-making, and compromises. Tapilchuacotl was ordained the Monarch of Monarchs, only the third individual in Azlo history to be officially crowned the title and the first to both hold the title of Monarch of Monarchs and also to be an Archpriest. Expansion and Wars of the Sun and Moon: 1219 - 1400 AD Tapilchuacotl died in 1219 AD, the last thing he did was merge the role of Monarch of Monarchs and the role of Archpriest into a single title and role. The merged title remained as Archpriest, but it meant that those who held the title had both religious power but also political power. Since the official formation of the Crescent Empire in 1202, Tapilchuacotl never warred any other nation state except in defending the empire from tribal incursions. Tapil's successor was not like that. His successor, Iztacoa II, was named after the legendary White Serpent monarch of the far western Azlo groups. As the grandson of Tapil, many were struck by the stubbornness and ambition of the young Archpriest who made it his life's goal to form the largest Azlo empire in history. By 1240, the Crescent Empire had begun to draw the attention of the much larger Tihuanaco Empire across the Tapatepetli mountains which began the century and a half long Wars of the Sun and Moon, which lasted from 1245 AD - 1395 AD, when influence from the Yellow Empire began to eventually collapse of the Tihuanaco Empire. Most of the conflict in the Wars of the Sun and Moon were within the great valley systems of the Tapatepetli mountains and at the neck of the Palu Peninsula where in joined to Mesothalassa proper. Despite both being large nations, neither side had the technology nor might to fully cross the mountains or make the long trek around them to conquer or subjugate the other. When the Yellow Empire finally arrived and brought instability to Tihuanaco, the Crescent Empire offered itself as a potential ally for the much larger Yellow Empire and great networks of trade were formed by the start of the 15th century. Borders of the Crescent Empire in 1400 AD. Dark Green is where the Metztlica are the majority ethnicity. The Golden Years: 1400 - 1600 AD From the 15th to 17th centuries, the Crescent Empire was in it's golden age of expansions, commerce, and culture. It's trade of spices and precious jewels and pottery to the Yellow Empire and to other merchants made the coastal cities fabulously wealthy along with the capital of Xinatlahuimiz (modern day Tekaken). The empire, unlike those of Europa or Argis, was a hegemonic empire with vassal states making up much of the empire's territory. Only the core majority-Metztlica populated areas were under the direct rule of the Archpriest, along with the coastal cities and ports, resulting in the empire being rather decentralised compared to the Yellow Empire or imperial Europa-Argis. Each vassal had to send an appropriately large offering to the capital each year or be threatened with destruction. As the empire grew, larger and larger groups of Metztlica migrated across the empire to economic hotspots. These new majority-Metztlica exclaves would then be promoted from vassals to core territories of the empire. By 1585, the empire had reach it's greatest extent. Borders of the Crescent Empire in from 1585 - 1690 AD. Dark Green are the majority-Metztlica core territories. The Falling Years: 1600 - 1800 AD Every empire collapse, the the Crescent Empire's collapse was a slow and gruelling one. The over bloated beaurocracy due to so many vassal states and the gradual movement towards decadence meant that the government often lagged behind on critical information, making the one unstoppable Crescent Army the laughing stock of the region. This first became apparent when Salvian crusaders attempted a takeover of the empire to convert it to Christianity - as they had done to their northern neighbour not too long ago. The Crescent Empire should of been able to push them back to sea almost immediately, but it took over fifty years to resist and forcefully expel the crusaders in 1710. This dramatic failure weakened the credibility of the government significantly and fringe vassal states began to break away - most not even threatened with retribution for their treason - and the government slowly fell to in-fighting. There were numerous attempts as reforms, but most were pushed back by the Priesthood or the government. By the end of the 18th century, the empire was only two thirds its size shown above. In 1798, the growing Shffahkia empire swooped into the decaying corpse of the Crescent Empire and tore it to shreds, unceremoniously annexing it as Shffahkia's first overseas non-island colony. The Territory of Mezzaluna: 1800 - 1850 AD From 1800 AD to 1850 AD, the Shffahkian Empire ruled the region corresponding to modern day Metztlitlaca, named the Territory of Mezzaluna. Regions of the old empire that were not directly annexed soon went off on their own paths, most falling to strife and anarchism. The main use of the colony was for crop plantations in the western savanna - where many Shffahkians settled - and for the exportation of precious gems and metals from the interior. Christianity soon spread from Shffahkia into Mezzaluna, joining up with those who were already converted by the Salvian crusaders and converting much of the coast. Even in modern times, the nation of Metztlitlaca is divided by a Catholic coastline and a Huecatoc (native faith) interior. The eastern jungle fringes were severely deforested and used for more intensive crops such as cotton, with slavery often practised in the area. This relationship of exploitation continued up until Marianne the First would take the throne in Shffahkia. The Premier, Jean-Patrique Lecerf, and the majority of senators back in the empire's capital did not want a woman on the throne especially when they were dealing with the consequences of a ill-advised war elsewhere in Aurelia. As a result, the Senate abolished the monarchy declaring the beginning of the First Shffahko-Republic on November 15, 1848, with Jean-Patrique Lecerf as its first president ending the Shffahkian Empire. This resulted in Marianne I at the age of 24 along with numerous aristocrats fleeing to Mezzaluna to establish a monarchy in exile. Flag of the Mezzaluna Territory Territory of Mezzaluna by 1850. Formation of the Crescent Kingdom and Wars of Independence: 1851 - 1873 Marianne Eugène de Caldofondo-Bouvèron and the aristocrats that followed established the Crescent Kingdom of Shffahkia in 1851. Marianne was never officially crowned queen, as she still believed she was the rightful ruler of Shffahkia and that taking a second crown would be a sign of surrender. From 1852 to 1873 numerous wars were fought between the First Shffahko Republic and the Crescent Kingdom of Shffahkia with both sides as aggressors. In 1872 Marianne I died from malaria at the age of 46, leaving the throne to her son Armand Eugène de Caldofondo-Bouvèron who was 21. Armand I soon began to broker a peace between the Crescent Kingdom of Shffahkia and the First Shffahko-Republic. The Shffahko-Republic and the Crescent Kingdom of Shffahkia both agreed to recognise each other's independence and to not place claims onto one another's land or governments, as well as the Crescent Kingdom of Shffahkia reducing its name to just the Crescent Kingdom. Armand I throughout his time on the throne never fought a war against another nation and was soon named Armand the Peaceful. In 1909 Armand and the Crescent government banned the purchasing and selling of individuals of any race or gender, he died a year later in 1910. In 2010, a hundred years after his death, one of the major coastal cities of Metztlitlaca renamed itself to Xamant - City of Armand - in recognition of his duty to the people of the Crescent Kingdom no matter their race or gender. Armand's successor was his son - Armand II - who's mother was an ex-aristocratic Tlaxcalixe (Azlo) lady. Armand II and his successors there-after were as equally despotic as Marianne or had no care to look after the kingdom, eventually leading to it's downfall...

    Home | Wurld | Salvia | Business | Politics | Church | Opinion | Tech | Entertainment l Sports Pope Gregory XVII: 'Second Inquisition to Take Place' to Root Out Conspiracy and Corruption The pope announced the Church's plans in a speech Tuesday afternoon The pope of the Salvian Church, Pope Gregory XVII, announced plans to complete the investigations into corruption started by Cardinal Mark D'Angelo in November of last year. The pope has dubbed it as the “Second Inquisition” with “widespread efforts and a large amount of resources” required to fulfill his goals. The speech, given Tuesday to numerous members of the press and the Magnissimum Comitium Cardinalicium (MCC), intended to lay out the plans of the Church in tackling internal corruption and to make the process “as transparent as possible.” Strong-worded in certain areas, the pope took no time in acknowledging the “deep problem” of conspiracy and corruption in the Church, adding that he was “appalled and horrified” by some of the conduct he had witnessed as a cardinal. He went on to say that he was “further horrified by the extent this conspiracy had infiltrated the Church and how close it could’ve come to succeeding.” The investigations had previously been halted for the papal election that took place in March, but not before disenfranchising some 35 cardinals from voting in the papal election as they were under investigation. While the conspiracy investigations resumed in April, further investigation beyond the 35 cardinals were not taken as the MCC intended to “wait for His Holiness’ planning and decisions”, which the pope had been working on since his election. Besides the four priests, bishop, and three cardinals previously arrested, the MCC announced that 19 of the 35 cardinals had been fully investigated, with 13 being found guilty and receiving corporal punishment in the form of 15 years in jail. The 6 found innocent had any positions or duties they had fully restored and each of them fully accepted the papal election, per the Papal Dicastery for Communications. Gregory’s Tacolic counterpart, Pope Hilarius XIX, praised the plans put forth and stated publicly that he’d be willing to provide “any and all aid” needed to complete the investigation. Numerous independent groups, from watchdogs to Catholics, have reacted positively to the news, apparently holding on to the hope that Gregory is able to deliver on his promises and eradicate corruption and conspiracy within the Salvian Catholic Church.

    The following news post is related to The Imperium Reunited. Home | Wurld | Salvia | Business | Politics | Church | Opinion | Tech | Entertainment l Sports  The Legacy of Gaullis: Salvian Nationalist Book Tops Bestseller Lists Across Salvia The cover of the book proudly features a prominent Salvian nationalist banner, dubbed by such people as the "Banner of Unity" or "Salvia's Glory" As protests engulf the Salvian wurld, nationalists advocating for Salvian unity have begun to demand for change louder and louder. Simultaneously, they have been given more of a voice on the national level, with several Concilio representatives beginning to heed their constituents call for political union with neighboring Salvian states and bringing their cries to Alexix Hall. In Alvernia, the leader, President Marco Marzeni, has continuously advocated for Salvian unification. Isolated pockets of protests in Tanemum have also been observed, however all have been peaceful and limited to small demonstrations. With the context in mind, it's not much of a surprise to see the book The Legacy of Gaullis top bestseller lists in cities across the Salvian wurld, from the Sicani Islands to Tanemum. The book, written by noted Salvian historian Marcus Samani, analyses the consequences of the rule of the Gaullius dynasty, who were in power from 1261 to 1563. Becoming rulers of Salvia with the establishment of the Sanctum Salvae Imperium Catholicum by King Joseph I, the following centuries of prosperity and conquest would make Salvia the strongest its ever been, stretching from Tanemum to the Nuabodante Mountain Range on the southern island. The expansion and subsequent occupation of these areas for centuries would lead to ethnic Salvians becoming the majority in the region as settlers and their families rushed into the new land, replacing the ethnic Marenai's majority. These regions, now independent states separate from the SIC, find themselves culturally, ethnically, economically, and religiously linked to their sister countries. In the latter half of his book, Samani looks to the present and potentially future ethnic conflicts in Alvernia and northern Salvia and the growing Salvian nationalist movement as evidence that a united Salvia, such as one seen until the People's War, is inevitable and even desirable. While some historians have criticized the book, it has largely been approved by the historical community, with the novel being previously peer-reviewed dozens of times over. So what's the big deal anyways? Correspondent Maria Tanya While a majority of ethnic Salvians are not supportive of the nationalist cause, there is a large minority that continues to grow and is the most vocal its ever been. Especially through the use of social media, Salvian nationalists have been rallying support for such a movement since the 80s, and now finally seem to be in a place where they could pose as a legitimate political force if they choose to unite as one. Yet disagreements, such as which Salvian nation would lead the movement towards unification as well as many more remain unanswered. The fact remains, however, that Salvian politicians can not ignore this movement that once only saw consideration in the government of Alvernia and nowhere else. The movement now sees serious support from Salvians in the SIC, with even some Concilio representatives hopping on. Despite the many issues within the movement that drive its supporters apart, it may not be long before these issues are solved and a united Salvia can be realized once more. As the popularity of Samani's book illustrates, there are many that are, if at least not supportive of the movement, at least interested in it enough to read this book.

    Hello all! After quite some time i managed to finally describe a terrorist faction that i want to use in a War on Terror rp, that i absolutely need for begin to rp a sub-plot of Anatea that will make the nation a internationally involved nation around the world in peackeeping operations and that will bring it out from its isolationism While i was writing i even casually found a nice trigger that people could use for the Alharu War that everyone wants (seems a cool war indeed *__* ) So here you go the terrorist faction's description with some notes in it i decided to post it here for having it reviewed and even modify it to your likings in case it could collide with some nation histories GROUP NAME: Alharuian Independent Force (AIF) MISSION: Mantain the indipendence of the Alharu continent and protect it from the imperialism of foreign countries. HISTORY: During the expansion of Insert NPC or Player Nation Here [1] in the areas of Alharu various nations (NPC nations) in the central part of Ahlaru began to take sides with Insert NPC or Player Nation Here to be annexed or be financially assisted, while the southern nations on the contrary did not want any influence from Insert NPC or Player Nation Here , fearing to have their mineral resources taken away or used indiscriminately. This led to a war (1998) [2] that saw the northern nations opposed to the southern ones, from which the latter emerged as winners. Having demonstrated to the world that they are capable of defending themselves, they joined together and created the Alharuian Independent Force, a faction that wants to prevent imperialist nations from subjugating the weakest ones, but the AIF tries to annex the weaker nations both to protect them but also to exploit them, thus creating a sort of protection racket like mercenaries. They will attack Anatea because after the Dalstavian War they saw that Anatea could become a power capable of affecting Aurelia and also many regions of Alharu (while in realty they were hired and supported by [REDACTED] [3] from the beginning, even during the war between the northern and southern nations. The reason why were hired and supported by [REDACTED] is for [REDACTED].) EQUIPMENT: Cold War Era weapons & vehicles / aircrafts of US production. . OPERATIVE METHODS & ORGANISATION: Their strenght is in their numbers, having support from the subjugated nations they own and using mostly a forced civilian recruit system for create auxiliary troops. During their attacks they tend to not attack civilians unless they have to send a message or they're constraint, but in realty it's optional for them, and they attack important or strategic targets that they could use for their own sustainment. Despite the old equipment they try not to waste or use it improperly. The AIF is organized in two branches: the Mercenary troops and the Auxilary troops. The Mercenary troops is the main force fully equipped and well trained composed mostly by 20 yo to 40 yo men and women, the Auxilary troops instead are an auxilary force used mainly in full scale operations, like attacks on cities or vast locations. They are barely equipped with what they need and recruited mostly by civilians on the spot. Most of the time they're accompanied by a group of mercenary soldiers, called "Overseers", that act as barrier troops for avoid rebellion in the ranks. They make up the 60% of the force of the AIF and men, women and kids from 14 yo to 50 yo are forcefully recruited as combatant units. [1] Initially was chosen Limonaia as "imperialist" nation, cause Metz was colonized by Limonaia (before it was reconned) and also seems quite a sort of barely imperialist nation of course metz told me that Limonaia's imperialism wasn't of that kind and so i put a generic term for change it with another Alharu nation (or even Argis nation, but really close to Alharu, like Iverica) or an NPC nation to your likings [2] I didn't find the name yet, but maybe that war could be the real Alharu War, after all the setting is quite interesting and gives a lot of opportunities to put some interested nations in it [3] I wrote [REDACTED] for avoid to spoil who's really behind all the war on terror and its reasons. Of course it's not another nation etc, it' s just another organization created by me that you' ll find out (or that you can spoil if you read my "Collection of RPs about the New Anterian Conflict" i made in my ex region x''D). @Metztlitlaca
