The Voodoo People’s Republic of Bruuma

The Native Age (6000 B.C. – 1666 C.E.)

Bruuma was first settled around 6.000 B.C. by tribes of hunter-gatherers. For thousands of years their descendants lived in villages scattered in the luscious forests of the island, practicing hunting and subsistence agriculture and frequently warring with each other.

The Colonial Age (1666 – 1942)

The first foreigners arrived in the form of seafaring explorers during the XVI century, but it wasn’t until 1666 that Austral-speaking adventurers invaded the island and turned it into a colony of a transcontinental empire.

The colonists developed extensive coastal plantations and enslaved most of the natives, who were quickly wiped out by diseases and forced labour. The English then replaced them with tens of thousands of imported black slaves. Slavery was abolished in 1838, and living conditions of black Bruumans slowly but gradually improved through the decades, despite the persistence of segregation politics.

At the dawn of XX century, a small, educated Afro-Bruuman elite spread among the masses the desire for independence, a struggle that in the 1936 escalated into a violent subversion.

War of Independence (1942 – 1956)

With the Motherland locked into conflict in its own continent, the independentists took the chance to launch a proper guerrilla campaign in 1942.

The three main rebel forces were: the Bruuma Voodoo People’s Liberation Front (BVPLF), the armed wing of the voodoo-communist Workers’ Mojo Party (WMP); the Popular Army for the Independence of Bruuma (PAIB), the armed wing of the socialist-democratic Popular Union for the Independence of Bruuma (PUIB), and the Christian messianic Rightful Movement for Equality and Justice (RiMoJE).

Through the conflict, Papa Unclepear became the uncontested leader of the BVPLF and, by gaining materal support from foreign Communist powers, turned the group into the biggest rebel force.

After a prolonged and bloody conflict, which caused the flight of most of the colonists, the Motherland agreed to a peace treaty in 1956. Bruuma became independent on November 5th, but the BVPLF launched a coup and on the 8th established the Voodoo People’s Republic of Bruuma.

The Voodoo People’s Republic of Bruuma first era (1956-2012)

Having crushed any internal dissent, Papa Unclepear took governing a country torn and impoverished by war. The first decade of the was marred by famines and only the unwavering support of the Communist foreign power allowed to avoid collapse. Oil and gas offshore deposits were discovered in the Sixties and allowed the country to relatively flourish. The collapse of its backer in 1991 forced Bruuma to rethink its standing in the South Pacific and its economy, opening up to tourism.

The Voodoo People’s Republic of Bruuma second era (2012-present)

In 2012, Bruuma began a new phase of more active interventionism. Its forces took part in several civil wars, including the Second Puerto Polloan War after which the tiny neighbour was annexed, first as a Protectorate and then as a Commonwealth.

In December 2017 Bruuma invaded the island of Sereva, part of the Republic of Erinor, in support of a local communist guerrilla. Bruuma withdrew from Sereva in 2018 after a peace deal was signed.

Bruuma also intervend in the Reizen Civil War, foguth between 2018 and 2020.

In 2020, Papa Unclepear retired, to die one year later, and Brother Unclepear took over with the title of Dear Leader.

The Socialist Republic of Kai Fa

Five States era (676 – 1271)

The first, Sinic-speaking inhabitants of Kai Fa arrived by sea in 676. Through time, five cities emerged among the others, forming the Five States of Tom Yam, Chau Fan, Ba Bao, Kong Bao and Tou Fu.

In 918 catastrophic floods swept across Kai Fa, destroying the fields and causing widespread famine. They signalled the beginning of an era of social and economic instability, marred by wars, revolts and disasters.

In 1216, the Tom Yam State had regained stability and prosperity and expanded southward either by war or marriage, until in 1271 Lo Char was crowned Emperor of Kai Fa in Tom Yam.

The First Empire (1271 – 1527)

The Empire flourished and the court in Tom Yam became a renowned centre of arts, literature, philosophy and sciences.

From 1378, a succession of weak Emperors followed, while powerful Ministries became the true rulers of the country. Famines and plagues, combined with high taxation, made resentment mount especially in the South.

The Won dynasty of Tou Fu rebelled in 1515, followed by most southern clans. In 1527, near the village of Dong Po, Emperor Lo Son was killed in battle and its army routed. The two sides created a new border on the river Er Kwai.

The Two Kingdoms (1527 - 1861)

The Northern Kingdom chose a conservative path: ruled by a landlord nobility and weak kings, it remained a centre for arts and traditional culture but lagged behind on economy and science.

The Southern Kingdom, ruled by warlike noble clans, developed vibrant crafts and merchant classes and became a regional sea power. In 1661, the Won dynasty ended and was succeeded by the Chop. In 1848, the ambitious king Chop Suey, set the country on a path of accelerated modernization.

In 1860, Suey opened hostilities against the Northern Kingdom. In spring 1861 the New Army marched toward Tom Yam and the last king Chow Lan committed suicide in its palace hours before Chop Suey made its entranced and proclaimed the restoration of the Empire.

The Second Empire (1861 - 1949)

Suey and its successors pushed on the path of forced modernization, achieving a partial success in the city but facing much more difficulties in the countryside.

In 1911 a massive protest against the unpopular Emperor Chop Mian forced him to allow political parties and concede elections. Two decades of turmoil followed, during which, in 1924, the Communist party was founded by Chairman Gau Bun.

In 1937, Generalissimo Ma Po took power, despite the nominal imperial title still retained by the adolescent Chop Siu, and civil war broke out. In 1949 Ma Po flew abroad with its last supporters, while Chop Siu was arrested and Chairman Gau Bun became the first Core Leader of the new Socialist Republic of Kai Fa.

The Socialist Republic of Kai Fa (1949 - today)

The new Communist regime banned other parties, installed a new public structure and turned to a socialist planned economy. In 1966 Brother Gau Bun died and Party’s factions engaged in a decade long struggle for power.

From 1978, Jiao Zi launched a broad program of reforms, which opened Kai Fa economically and diplomatically to the outside world and helped the modernization and recovery of its economy and society.

Starting from 1991, Kai Fa surged as a major producer in several new industries such as textiles and electronics… In 2011 Chairman Lo Pol became the new Core Leader of the Republic and began consolidating its personal power.

The Commonwealth of Puerto Pollo

The Native Age (5000 B.C. – 1690C.E.)

Puerto Pollo was first settled around 5.000 B.C. by tribes of hunter-gatherers. For thousands of years their descendents lived in villages scattered in the luscious forests of the island, practicing hunting and subsistence agriculture and frequently warring with each other.

The Colonial Age (1690 – 1897)

In 1690 Austral-speaking pirates established a base in Danjer Cove. In 1700 a Spanish-speaking transcontinental power invaded the island, expelled the pirates and annex Puerto Pollo as a colony, mixing with the native66. In 1897 the Motherland, severely weakened by a war lost on its continent, conceded independence.

The First Puerto Pollo Republic (1897 – 1979)

The new country became the typical banana republic: the elite of wealthy plantation owners and traders monopolized the control of the authoritarian state. After 1945, the communists polarized the poor masses’ anger. In 1979 the communists were likely to win the elections; the Army in response staged a coup and established a military junta.

The First Puerto Pollo Civil War (1979 -1990)

The communists formed the Fuercas Armadas Revolucionarias de Puerto Pollo (FARPP) and a civil war ensued. As the fight went on, both factions lost view of their ideals and their ideological motives and became involved in drug trafficking and other criminal activities. In 1990 a South Pacific-brokered Peace Deal was finally signed by the war-weary factions.

The Second Puerto Pollo Republic (1990-2012)

Trafficking became the primary economic sector of the country, ruled by armed cartels. Discontent grew, not only among the poorest but also among former mid and low rank fighters. Former FARPP colonel El Pollo Diablo formed the Pollos Endemoniados Revolucionarios militia.

The Second Puerto Pollo Civil war and current era (2012 - today)

In 2012 the government collapsed and a new civil war broke out between PER and the Fuerca Democratica Portuaria (FDP), a union of anti-PER militias integrated with former Ejercito de Puerto Pollo (EPP) units. On 3 March 2014 the Bruuman People’s Defence Forces invaded Puerto Pollo in its support a of PER and crushed the FDP in just six days.

The VPRB then established the Protectorate of Puerto Pollo, now a Commonwealth, with El Pollo Diablo as its Boss Maximo.
