Nation History (A Story) Edit
The Travels of Shakyr Edit
Born in the wild frontier lands, Shakyr's early life was not what one would expect of a ruler. Living in an isolated group of outcasts, Shakyr was taught a hunter's life from a very early age, stalking wildlife without detection, helping supply the group with fresh meat and learning how to defend himself with bow and staff. But Shakyr was always wondering what was over the next hill and when he was 18 he set off to see what just lay over the next hill.
Over the following years Shakyr travelled the lands, heading far north to where it was bitterly cold and daylight all year round and far south, deep into the dry deserts, that strip the moisture from your very bones. During his travels, he learned the skills of a mercenary, tried his hand at being a travelling bard and discovered alot about the world. After seven long years, he headed back home, to see what had become of his family and old friends.
The Creation of Cimmerii Edit
Upon arriving back home and finding everyone safe, he saw nothing had changed and much that could be changed. Slowly over the next year or two, he introduced small changes into the ways things were done, improving the lifestyle of the group of outcasts and eventually, the small group of outcasts had a discussion. The outcome of this disscussion was total support for Shakyr to lead the group and so the tiny nation of Cimmerii was born, with the capital Tenebrae located where Shakyr grew up. As the ruler of Cimmerii, the first thing Shakyr did was join the peace-loving alliance, League of Extraordinary Nations (LEN), to ensure protection for a young and growing Cimmerii.
In the following months under Shakyr's leadership, the changes were great but the improvements many, with the lifestyle of Cimmeriians improving in leaps and bounds. A stable financial system was created, fueled by the construction of banks throughout the nation. Foreign relations improved, through the ties to LEN and trade improved, with harbors constructed on the coast and roads constructed throughout the lands. The population boomed and land had to be steadily explored to make sure everyone had room to grow. Factories were constructed, to lower an increasing unemployment rate and to give the skilled workers somewhere to earn a living. All in all, life was going pretty good and getting better.
War and Turmoil Edit
And then war came. The Siberian Tiger Alliance, allies of the alliance LEN, were brutally attacked and Cimmerii armed up and marched off to war with the rest of LEN, in defense of her allies. Soon the war was over though, with minimal casualties and Cimmerii started rebuilding and expanding once again.
Schools and universities were constructed throughout the nation, improving the existing education system and creating more skilled workers. A hospital was constructed in the capital, Tenebrae, with clinics constructed in outlying towns, improving healthcare and fueling an even larger population boom. Eventually, to reduce costs, Labor Camps were constructed and although it angered some people, Shakyr knew it for the best, for the Labor Camps quickly found uses for the lazy and the criminally-inclined, forcing them to help in maintaining the existing infrastructure at a cheap cost. The overall lifestyle of the average Cimmeriian though was pretty good and steadily improving.
But war struck again. Friends and allies that Cimmerii knew and respected were attacked again and the armies of LEN and Cimmerii once again marched off to war. This time though, victory has not been so easy, with many soldiers dying and much of Cimmerii has been lost. But the Cimmeriians are stubborn and hardy folk, who will yell defiance in the face of a superior enemy, to their dying breath if need be. And while the lands can be razed and buildings destroyed, the brave soldiers know that so long as one Cimmeriian survives to fade into the shadows, Cimmerii can always be built again, anew.
A New Beginning Edit
Severely damaged in the last war, the citizens of Cimmerii fled their beloved homeland and struck out across the ocean, searching for a paradise where they could peacefully rebuild their beloved nation. After many months they reached a group of islands and after weeks of searching could find no trace of anyone else. So the Cimmeriian survivors have started the process of rebuilding their beloved nation, in a group of islands they now call 'The Lost Isles'.
The Hard Road Ahead Edit
Though the road has been hard, the people persevered with the rebuilding of their nation. All was not in vain, for upon this glorious day, 27 March, we see the Lost Isles reach the heights of the former Cimmerii and surpass them.
Now the people can look ahead, to a brighter future, where the road will be just as hard, but the potential rewards make it so worth it.
