Nation History Edit
On 7 June 2007, the former leader Aromeer Gorandius made a return as the Gorandius1256 of Elkistan. Aromeer Gorandius' First nation had been deleted due to inactivity after a crushing defeat by FAN warriors during the Second Great War. After his friend, Darth Blitzer, had joined Cybernations the previous April, Aromeer Gorandius decided to return to the game under the name Gorandius1256. Gorandius 1256 joined his former alliance, The Legion. Elkistan did not participate in may wars following the decimation of The Legion in The Dove War. Elkistan became a member of Sparta for a short time before joining the New Polar Order. Feeling he had betrayed his comrades, Gorandius1256 joined with the Lukehar Republic in OFS shortly before its disbandment. Elkistan followed Darth Blitzer into ISSF.
War of the Coalition Edit
Working in reserve, Gorandius1256 never attacked any targets, but was well prepared to engage in combat if necessary.
The Quiet Times Edit
After the war with Polaris ended, Elkistan found it could focus in economic endeavors and built up a large economic powerhouse. Elkistan found itself participating in the ISSF merger which formed Orion.
Karma War Edit
Orion Declared war on NPO and Elkistan got to launch it's first nuclear strike, later on it would end up fighting Invicta nations in defense of Orion and would continue to launch nukes, and get nuked for the first time, Invicta would accept White peace leading to them and Orion getting out of the war
Dissolution of Orion Edit
Sadly Orion was falling apart internally due to a lack of activity, and would eventually dissolve. Elkistan at the time decided it was best to follow Orion's former leader, Michael Malone, into the allaince of iFOK. Since Darth Blitzer was indecisive about which alliance to join, he found himself following Elkistan into iFOK
NpO-\m/ War Edit
The New Polar Order declared war on \m/ due to vaguely defined reasons, iFOK by way of treaty would soon find themselves involved in the conflict and the Elkistan was ordered to hit several nations. This war found its way to being some of Elkistan's heaviest losses. Since then, Elkistan has been rebuilding, but Gorandius1256 has yet to reattain the level of infrastructure and technology desired to make a significant jump in infrastructure.
Saying Goodbye to an old FriendEdit
On 25 May 2010, Gorandius1256 became the founding Secretary of War in a new Alliance called the Omniscient Empire of Green. After nearly four months of planning, Elkistan and her allies finally had their own alliance. However, not all was lost to iFOK. The Omniscient Empire of Green posted a protectorate treaty with iFOK along with the posting her Declaration of Existence.
Disbandment of OEGEdit
Approximately four months into the founding of OEG, the forum host, IPBfree went offline. As a result, the forums which were created for the neophyte alliance were lost; the great work done by Free Space Directorate was destroyed. This resulted in a great loss of motivation for the members of the young alliance and led to increased inactivity. This was also due to much of the personal time of the members being taken up by real life activities such as school and the like. Consequently, on the 6 month anniversary of her existence, the Omniscient Empire of Green decided to disband. Most members rejoined iFOK, however, Darth Blitzer joined a young alliance called Symphony made up of old friends who played a game called Lunar Wars.
Last Days in iFOKEdit
After a combined total of nearly two years in iFOK, the powers in charge of that alliance, as well as that of Poison Clan, a close ally of iFOK decided to merge into a new alliance. This alliance is called Non Grata. On 15 June 2011, Gorandius1256 officially joined the ranks of Non Grata and has said final farewells to his old home, iFOK forever.
All Military Operations of Elkistan are considered of vital importance to national security and are therefore classified to all but Gorandius1256's closest compatriots.
