Federal Republic of Likatonia
The Federal Republic of Likatonia is a nation located in north-western Seleya. It is bordered to the east by the 2nd Great Democratic Republic of Lodamun and to the south by the People's Republic of Valruzia. Likatonia is made up of five States: Pirland, Madison, East Bolton, West Bolton and Norwalk. The official language is Luthori (English).
History of LikatoniaEdit
The history of Likatonia has been rather violent, mostly due presence of slavery and countless wars. The most notable of these incidents is the Likatonian Revolution, which freed Likatonia from the control of The Holy Luthori Empire, by whom the colonizers of Likatonia (Luthorians, Egelians, Dundorfians, Darnussians etc.) were very heavily taxed by.
Various governments have been successful in progressive movements, despite the traditionally conservative nature of the Likatonian people.
Historical Conflicts Edit
In 4023 the a conflict known as the Likatonian Revolution freed Likatonia from control of the Holy Luthori Empire. Though a majority of the Likatonian population was of Luthori origin, their main reasons for leaving Luthori for Likatonia was the oppressive Luthori government (which then seemed to follow them to their new home). The end of this war signaled a new era for Likatonia.
In 4028 the first Likationian Civil War Ended. It began because the nation was divided on the legality of the slave trade of dark-skinned Talmorian. The western states wanted it to be illegal, while the eastern and northern states needed slaves for their entire economy to function, as it was mainly agricultural. The pro-slave trade states called themselves the Confederacy and the anti-slave trade states called themselves the Union. In 4028, the Union won and slavery was abolished in Likatonia which is remains to this day.
In 4095 the second Likatonian Civil War broke out. This is an ongoing civil war fueled by many things. A main cause to this war was the tense relations between Pirland (a left-wing state) and Madison (a right-wing state). The war broke out after Madison right-wing extremists burned down the capitol building in Chester, Pirland. This caused a chain of events in the second Likatonian Civil War. The war allowed for Norwalk engineers and scientists to begin testing weapons they had been developing. These included new, more efficient flintlock replacements for the previous ones used by the Likatonian Armed Forces and new mortars and Howitzers.
Likatonia has incredibly diverse geography from the snowy Eastern mountain range to the beaches of the isle of Pirland, the forests of East Bolton and the deserts of southern West Bolton.
To the East is the Snowy Mountain Range that passes through Norwalk, Madison and East Bolton. The mountain range is famous in Norwalk history, and was featured prominently in the various wars between Likatonia and Lodamun over the millennium.
To the South is the Boltonese Forest that extends from the east of West Bolton to the south of East Bolton. The forest is roughly 124,000 km squared.
