National History Edit
The Federal Republic is a relatively young nation that was started by a group of migrants in the Midwest. The Germans had set out from their homeland in search of a land where they could create their own free nation. On the bend of the Wabash river they found their new homeland and set about creating a republic where all people and religions could live together side by side in harmony.
A democracy arose and the people of the Federal Republic prospered. They fought a few short quick wars in which they easily won to gain some land from the arising surrounding small nations. However, a newer challenge was on the horizon. The growing Federal Republic strove and succeeded in uniting a now burgeoning alliance called the Enforcers and after helping establish it stepped into the back seat to let other nations run the show. The people's attention turned to internal development and the people worked with a frenzy to build new roads, factories and schools. The military stayed a proud place for the population to work in and the army grew by leaps and bounds.
However, even in this time of expansion and internal development the people didn't forget about their newfound allies. A group of three nations launched an attack on the Kingdom of Wales devestating the government and the Federal Republic immediately jumped to her defense. In this the first real war testing the Enforcer's alliance, all members proved their worth providing everything they could spare to the war effort. Within days all three enemy nations had been all but destroyed. Their cities and farmlands were devestated. It was a major victory for the nation and the alliance, however, it did not come without a cost.
The Federal Republic had suffered during the fighting, for once engaged the enemy armies had come for her. Hundreds of soldiers died in the fighting, and the government was forced out of its capital city more than once, but they hung on and even advanced against the enemy in these harsh times. The people vowed never again, never again will they allow such a small percentage of their income be devoted to the military and be so unprepared for war. They unanimously voted in a Capitalist system of government to better the economy and provide for a better war machine. And with this, the military expanded purchasing more tanks and even its first aircraft.
Some people felt that the government still wasn't providing enough. These die hards performed a swift coup'd etat and installed a Revolutionary Government in the capital with minimal damage to the infrastructure, as well as minimal casualties. So now, the people await and see if this government can provide the military that they know they need while keeping civil liberties at the norm.
