1952 - A time for prosperity?

It has been a time of relative peace in the region, that has not been seen in centuries. King's have passed, Governor's have been and gone, tribal leaders, too many to count. Yet, they have managed to keep away from each others throats. There had been a few hiccups here and there, lone wolves riding bomb-laden donkey's into town markets, disputes over fishing areas, and of course, the ever eternal battle for who the true chosen people are. For the long run, Jantje's promise of peace has seemed to have stayed it's course.

King George III had just succeeded the crown after his father George II had died. With his succession, many had seen it as a start of a new era of global and regional prosperity. A chance for Gallambria and her Territories to stand center stage in global affairs.

Despite the misgivings of the former Governor, Yogev ben Maor, who had suggested to the King that the Sharab people be "relocated" to another region of the continent, the people of the Bashan had started to come together, as a unified people, regardless of their beliefs, their tribal allegiances. With this everlasting veil of prosperity and peace, will Jantje's promise of peace remain? Some would hope so - despite it's lacking significance, stability in the Bashan is paramount for Gallambria to able to shine on the global stage.

With industrial and financial independence developing within the territory, it all seemed to be going well. There had been times where the Qubdite's had been hoping to bank on the Bashan's success, resulting in sporadic and sometimes intense conflicts along the borders and also within diplomatic circles. The Bashan was becoming a sustainable platform for a Gallambrian presence in the region, and many Gallambrian companies had worked with the Government to establish satellite offices and branches in the Bashan. The Qubdites had seen this as a threat to their industry and also their status as a leading industrial and financial powerhouse in Amutia. In the years to come, this threat would culminate into two Qubdite-back Sharab revolts. While these were quickly and effectively quashed, they still presented a threat to security both internally and regionally.

There's no denying that there's still animosity within the Sharab community in the Bashan, but foreign influence, particularly from neighboring countries, would not be tolerated. Would this animosity last and see the downfall of Jantje's promise of a lasting peace, or would peace prevail and put the Bashan on the map of regional influence and stability?
