History[edit]

History of Namgiang

Early History[edit]

First Unification Period (450 BC-120 AD)[edit]

Giangi history traditionally starts with the foundation of the First Vo Dynasty around 750 BC, which encompassed most of the Xanhvinh Plain and surrounding mountainous regions.

Uzhut Rule (120 AD-350 AD)[edit]

The weakness in the Vo Dynasty led to the collapse of the indigenous government and rule by the Uzhut conquerors.

Shattered Period (400 AD-850 AD)[edit]

The Mealo Khagnate finally collapsed and led to a period dominated by smaller states.

Second Unification Period (850-1200)[edit]

The Namgiang Empire was formed after the Battle of X, now ruled by the Quyen Dynasty.

Conquest of the Turkics(1200-1400)[edit]

The Namgiang Empire during this period launch a series of invasions of the interior nomads and tribes and subjugates them. Meanwhile, economic growth in the core regions produce a strong mercantile class and growing interactions with the Cathai.

The Great Plague and Discovery of Valeya (1400-1500)[edit]

WIP Great Plague that kills many.

The Golden Imperial Era (1500-1700)[edit]

Coming out of the terrible great plague, the Empire of Namgiang extends its reach over Escar, subjugating vast lands and establishing trade posts across the seas. However, growing discontent after a series of costly wars and the growth of a republican movement in the urban classes causes turmoil.

Republican Era (1700-1880)[edit]

After the brief but bloody republican revolution, the Giangi Empire collapses. The Republic of Namgiang manages to hold on to some territory, but loses much of the periphery. This period is marked by internal strife as the Republican government is fraught with corruption and vying factions.

The Early Socialist State (1890-1939)[edit]

Discontent with the Republican government, communist revolutionaries launch a campaign to oust the Republican government, garnering much support

The Modern Socialist State (1940-present)[edit]

Socialist State of Namgiang[edit]

Social unrest in Namgiang resulted in the Liberation War, which was fought between Republican loyalist and communist revolutionaries From 1903 to 1908. By the summer of 1908, the communists won, establishing the Socialist State of Namgiang. The Socialist State underwent lengthy rebuilding from 1908 until 1939, when the Kingdom of Jiquan declared war on Namgiang. This rebuilding included a reforming of the administrative structures which granted greater economic autonomy to the provinces and centralized the security apparatus in Minh Nong. After brutal fighting across Escar, especially concentrated in the south and west, the Central Escaric War ended in X

The Social Republic of Jiquan was quickly integrated into the Giangi military command with the Giangi Occupation Forces, Jiquan Theatre, being transitioned into the Jiquan Theatre which was integrated with the Jiquan Revolutionary Armed Forces. However, the Social Republic of Machen was not integrated due to political reasons and only a token force was maintained in the SRM. At the outbreak of the Machenese Civil War in 1959, the All Peoples Armed Forces High Command and the Premier called for a significant intervention, however, various state security apparatuses and the Foreign Office rejected the proposal. The APAF ignored their protest and began preparations to deploy expeditionary forces. After learning about the preperations, the QAN and Foreign Office attempted a coup against the High Command and the Premier, resulting in the squashing of the coup and the arrest of several high level officials. The country was put under emergency, and significant disunity occurred within the government. The situation finally stabilized in Namgiang around 1960, but the APAF was unable to send significant forces into the SRM, and Namgiang pulled out after several months of half hearted intervention. Still bitter from the loss, Namgiang refused to acknowledge the dissolution of the SRM and refused to sign the Dzongla Treaty, which contributed to serious tensions between the Machenese Empire and Namgiang.

In 196X, Namgiang was involved in the Hinomoto War, resulting in the withdrawal of Giangi forces from the island. Namgiang then intervened in the (?Esc civil war?). In the 60s and 70s the Social Republic of Jiquan underwent serious unity issues as various splinter groups established bases of support in the south and central Jiquan. This led to Giangi led negotiations between the factions and the central government under the Yichun Accords which allowed for high amounts of regionalism and autonomy while maintaining the nominal state. In 1984, the Uzhut War broke out. The Machenese Empire quickly involved itself and Namgiang and Machen fought a three week war, resulting in an OL negotiated ceasefire and establishment of a DMZ along the Giangi-Machen border. The Dennui DMZ remains the largest demilitarized zone in the world and the site of extensive military installations.

After the 1999 Yellow Putsch in the SRJ, the Giangi air force established no fly zones and conducted combat operations in the southern and central regions of Jiquan to fight against regionalist splinter groups. The situation led to two significant ground operations on the part of Namgiang in 2000 and 2008 to create a buffer zone along the Giangi border. In 2009 Namgiang reintegrated the SRJ into the [INSERT ORCOM INTEL SHARING] to bolster their ties.

Politics[edit]

Politics of Nikhghiaangh


Nikhghiaangh is a unitary Single Party Socialist Republic with a Premier as head of state and government, and a Leading Party Member acting as chief whip. The country is run through the apparatus of the Ghiaanghi All-Peoples Front (GAPF), the only legal party of Nikhghiaangh. The Ghiaanghi All-Peoples Front is referred to as the government of Nikhghiaangh, due to the party apparatus and government structure being the same. All national party members must be members of the GAPF and swear allegiance to the Social State. This coupled with banning non-socialist members from the party has led to a restricted form of democracy.

The Premier of the State is selected by unanimous decision by the Central Committee. The Central Committee is the highest body in the Ghiaanghi All-Peoples Front. The Central Committee is selected by the national party members of the Ghiaanghi All-Peoples Front, and is usually based on seniority and political connections. Six out of the nine current sitting members of the Central Committee currently serve in the government as well as as national party members. The bureaucracy of the All-Peoples Front is split into four types: the legislature, the executive, the local governments, and the judiciary.

The majority of Namgiang is Bautroii, with Goba Bautroii being the largest sect at 76% of the population. The second largest sect is Animist Bautroii at 7% of the population. Another 10% of the population adhere to Zhoggchu Paganism, and the rest identify as irreligious or not sure, according to 2016 census statistics from the central government of Namgiang.

Goba Bautroiism[edit]

Bautroiism (Giangi: बौत्रोईस्म), is a native religion of Namgiang. Bautroiism is a pantheistic religion with a belief in an impersonal essence, or Su Hien Dien (Giangi: सु हिएन डिएन), which guides the world and its processes through its nature. Bautroiism rejects the bifurcation of the afterlife, and instead postulates that the afterlife is a resting place of the souls until the rebirthing of the earth, where the souls are then recycled along with all matter in the universe.

Su Hien Dien's similarity to an anthropomorphic deity is sometimes confusing. However the Essential Chapters explain that it is within Su Hien Dien's nature to create and cycle, thus its actions are of impulse not of sentience or choice. According to the text the impersonal essence recycles the universe on the great parchment of life, where its power is painted onto the great parchment of life. The world and afterlife exist for a time, and then slowly melt off the parchment. Thus the spiritual souls, afterlife, and physical world collect into the Su Hien Dien's "essence" and it again stains the parchment with the recycled matter and souls. This rebirth continues for eternity.

Common to Bautroiism is a focus on moral behavior to honor Su Hien Dien (which manifests in people taking collective views of moral actions not for self betterment but out of respect for the higher powers), its extensive rituals to celebrate Su Hien Dien, and its pragmatic view of the future. The Bautroi Temples of Namgiang is the largest organization of Bautroiism, and maintains itself as the only moral organization. Many competing sects also exist, but they are usually much smaller and are discriminated against by the central government.

Animist Bautroii[edit]

Zhoggchu Paganism[edit]

Other religions[edit]

Culture[edit]

Giangi culture is diverse owing to its vast geography and population. Its relatively isolated position from the western Cathaic areas of Escar led to a unique cultural development path, yet Namgiang maintains similarities with the other Cathaic cultures.
