The United Federation of Almerreich, commonly called Almerreich, or sometimes the Almerreich Federation is a federal parliamentary constitutional monarchy in central Orda. It is bordered to the north by Vytachia, to the north-east by Suavia, to the east by ???, to the south-east by Khornera, to the south by the silver sea, to the west by Valourium, to the north-west by Cairdeas, and has an estimated population of 88 million. Almerreich is divided into 21 provinces (also referred to as states); consisting of four kingdoms, six grand duchies, four duchies, and seven principalities. The Alm river runs throughout most of the country, and is a major factor in most citizens lives.

Almerreich is a developed country, with a gross national product of $2.343 trillion. The Almerreich economy is post-industrial, but retains a strong secondary sector, with a highly-skilled labor force and a low level of perceived corruption. Almerreich is recognized to be a regional power in Orda. It is a member of the Ordic League and a member of the ????Non-aligned Movement??? (NAM).

History[edit]

Prehistoric history[edit]

Ancient humans are found in the Almerian area as far back as 600,000 years ago. Stone and wooden tools and weapons start appearing between 400,000 to 350,000 years ago. Most early humans of this era hunted mammoth and other large mammals for food and furs. Not much is known about tribal societies or how to classify different tribes in the area, but there was some evidence of larger groups being formed before the invention of agriculture.

Agricultural revolution[edit]

Sometime around 12,000 years ago there was a sudden push for agriculture on the Alm. The river flooded regularly and did not flood violently, so agriculture was quite easy in ancient Almerreich. Although the actual year and date of the first example of agriculture communities forming is debated, most scholars put the date at 10,000 BCE, or 0 HE.

Classical history[edit]

Middle ages[edit]

Renaissance era[edit]

The Deuestrias Empire spent many years conquering the lands around them, and fighting many wars over territory. Art and culture also flourished in this era, as the constant conquest brought with it new cultures and new ways of thinking. Empires began to form in Orda that could rival Deuestrias, but luckily most were far enough away that no direct conflicts ensued. Religion also began to spread through the lands quickly, with the now unified lands being linked by roads trading posts.

Enlightenment era[edit]

Religious reforms in Deuestrias were taken very seriously, as the Empire viewed religion as acceptable, but may become a problem if it were a more unifying force for the people than the fear they could instill in them. With less emphasis placed on the heaven and hell issue, and religion taking a backseat in Deuestrias, the opposite of what the Empire wanted took place. Racial tensions began to stir and the flames of revolution were being lit around the nation.

Industrial era[edit]

The industrial revolution would prove to be the downfall of Deuestrias. With Deuestrias slow to industrialize it was only a matter of time before the powder keg that was the Empire finally exploded. After a series of brutal wars that crushed Deuestrias, new taxing programs and harsher race laws many rose up in defiance during the ??? War after a government crackdown on a workers strike, revolution started around the country. For the following six years the former empire would struggle against itself until a new state was formed. Later known as the Deuestrian Civil War, this event would go down in history as the turning point for Almerreich.

After three years of war the Empire had fully collapsed, now with revolutionary groups turning against each other in order to seize power for themselves. A union of war heroes and civilians from all over the territories formed the Almerreich Federation. For the next two years the Federation would mop up the other power-hungry revolutionaries and put together a constitution protecting the rights of the many, and making everyone equal. Slavery was also banned around this time, as it was seen as counter productive to society as a whole. The new united Almerreich Federation would formally announce the formation of it's new country on May 22nd, 1873. This day would become known as Formation Day Two months before this the final fringe groups were put down and the civil war had ended. The first thing on the agenda for the newly formed Almerreich was to rapidly modernize to avoid being preyed on by the much stronger empires to east. Although not a popular decision, the old monarchy was put back into place, in order to keep many of the nobles in check. The monarchy was almost entirely controlled by the federal council, but in time they became a figurehead again, and most accepted their place as a peoples king (Volkskaiser). The United Federation of Almerreich was rather shaky at first, but by the end of the industrial era they had risen back up to a regional power and had the industrial capacity to compete with most Ordan nations.

Modern era[edit]

After the quick industrialization, the need for trade became the countries biggest concern. After the revolution, trade had been limited to only a few neighboring countries, but the time had come to once again open the country to foreign interests. Trading materials and goods quickly made Almerreich rich and with equal opportunities for everyone in the country, most old guards of race relations gave into the profits being raked in. Almerreich began employing a mixed economy during this time as well, to make sure that equality was easier to attain, and to keep the nobles from dominating trade around the federation.
