Emmeria, officially the Republic of Emmeria,[a] is the largest country on the continent of Anea and a leading military superpower in Strangereal. It shares borders with Estovakia to the east and with Nordennavic to the northwest. The Fuscum Sea separates Emmeria from Yuktobania, located on the Verusan continent just south of Anea.
Emmeria is a large, wealthy nation that is home to a thriving population and great economic influence. Citizens of the capital city Gracemeria, enjoy prosperous, peaceful everyday lives. The country maintains a large and highly-skilled military which is considered to be one of the most capable armed forces on the planet.
A key factor in Emmeria's economic prosperity is its many industries: large-scale oil pipelines in the Kijera Oil Fields, prosperous textile manufacturing in Ortara, and large industrial zones in Tarvo. Many ports also dot the coastline of the nation, indicating that trade is very prominent.
Previously a kingdom during medieval times, Emmeria was subject to a history of warfare. Conflicts involving Emmerian lords and foreign invaders often threw Emmeria into chaos. King Aurelius II later ended the conflicts, uniting the country and establishing the Republic of Emmeria.
Medieval times (1400s)
The Republic of Emmeria was preceded by a kingdom in medieval times. In the 15th century, the region that would become Gracemeria was home to extremely fertile soil, and due to this, became the focus of infighting among Emmerian lords seeking control of the land. The continuous conflicts decayed the power of the ruling royal family and threw Emmeria into lawlessness, leaving the nation open to foreign invasions.
King Aurelius II, the founder of modern Emmeria, rose to power in the middle of the turmoil and convinced the various Emmerian lords to submit to his rule, thereby uniting them in a front to stand against the foreign invaders. Historians cite this event as the establishment of the Republic of Emmeria. Alongside its declaration as a republic, the capital of the nation was moved to Gracemeria.
Ulysses Impact Event (1998—1999)
On July 29, 1998, the International Astronomical Union (IAU)'s official monthly damage estimate was revised and detailed the possibility of the Ulysses 1994XF04 asteroid impacting Anea. Widespread panic ensued across the nation, and Emmeria took measures to counter the asteroid impact. By September, Emmeria had begun constructing evacuation shelters throughout the country.
In 1999, preparations for the Ulysses Impact Event were in full swing, all across the nation, numerous aircraft and naval vessels were mobilized to transport refugees to underground shelters being built in Gracemeria. On July 3, 1999, the asteroid entered the Earth's atmosphere and shattered into thousands of fragments that impacted the northern hemisphere. Emmeria's defensive strategy resulted in it sustaining fewer casualties than its eastern neighbour, Estovakia.
The impacts saw the collapse of Emmeria's trade routes and economy, along with the loss of cities and ports in its western areas. Despite this, the country was able to recover relatively quickly.
Era of peace (2000—2015)
Six months after the Ulysses planetfall, Emmeria enacted the Emmerian-Estovakian Reconstruction Effort to aid Estovakia recover from the impact. Around this time, the Emmerian Ministry of Science and Technology began showing concern regarding the Chandelier's potential for war, prompting multiple nations to prohibit any further development.
In 2004, the Republic of Anea Initiative, a movement aiming to unify all of the Anean countries into a single nation, was founded. The Preparatory Agency for the Republic of Anea would be founded to carry out the initiative on February 1. That same year, the Preparatory Agency declared the Emmerian city of Mante as the capital of the Republic of Anea.
In June 2007, the Estovakian Civil War broke out. Emmeria, still wishing to help Estovakia recover, contacted the Lyes United Front (LUF), one of the factions vying for control of the country. They came to an agreement and Emmeria began sending aid to the LUF, believing it would help end the civil war.
In August 2008, representatives for the Republic of Anea attended the G7 Summit aboard the Arkbird. It is presumed that representatives from Emmeria attended the event. On October 23, plans for the Republic of Anea were put on hold due to the civil unrest in Estovakia.
Later on, Emmeria discovered that the LUF was using their aid to fuel its war machine instead of helping the nation recover. This led to Emmeria discontinuing its support for the LUF on February 19, 2010.
Return of Razgriz
Likely without Emmeria's knowledge, Yuktobania stationed the Hrimfaxi in the Razgriz Straits during the Circum-Pacific War. From within Emmerian borders, the Hrimfaxi fired long-range burst missiles at the invading Osean Army, who were advancing towards Cinigrad. In response, the Osean Air Defense Force deployed Wardog Squadron to the straits. On November 14, 2010, Wardog ambushed the Hrimfaxi in Emmeria and sunk it while it was resupplying, earning the squadron the nickname, the "Demons of Razgriz".
On May 9, 2011, Emmeria officially stopped assisting in the reconstruction of Estovakia.
As the Estovakian Civil War came to a close two years later with an Eastern Faction victory, a military regime led by The Generals established a new government within Estovakia. Under this new government, many Estovakians would come to resent Emmeria as they funded the LUF and were partially responsible for the civil war. By 2013, the Republic of Anea was dissolved and the Anean nations returned to being separate. Around this time, Emmeria's census took place; its population stood at around 110 million.
Following the Estovakian Civil War, Emmeria started aiding reconstruction efforts in Estovakia again. In February 2014, a storage facility in Vistoc under the protection of the Emmerian Reconstruction Assistance Force was attacked by former LUF members, resulting in a large number of supplies being lost. Reinforcements were deployed and news of the attack quickly spread throughout Emmeria.
In response to the attack, the Conference on Reconstruction Assistance to Estovakia was held. During which, it was announced that the aid program halted in 2011, would continue. Following the announcement, Estovakian representatives questioned Emmeria's previous support of the LUF, blaming them for the civil war and furthering misgivings between the two nations.
Emmeria-Estovakia War (2015—2016)
On August 30, 2015, Estovakia launched a surprise attack on Gracemeria, utilizing its P-1112 Aigaion to overwhelm Emmerian forces, forcing them to retreat west across Anea. Following the loss of their capital, the Emmerian military carried out multiple recapture operations to no avail due to combined efforts of the elite Strigon Team, Aigaion and South Sea Fleet. Estovakia would see continual victories, successfully conquering San Loma and ultimately driving Emmerian forces to Khesed Island.
In late 2015, the Emmerian military began securing minor victories, resulting in Estovakian forces being driven off of Khesed Island. Emmeria now began plans for a recapture of lost Emmerian territory. In January 2016, Emmerian forces carried out an amphibious assault on the mainland, defeating a large Estovakian force and securing a foothold on Anea. After successfully establishing a bridgehead, Emmerian forces rescued their pinned down allies in Silvat Town. Now with a substantially larger force, they headed inland.
As the Emmerians continued pushing east, Estovakia once again utilized its P-1112 Aigaion to slow their advance. In February 2016, Emmerian forces recaptured San Loma and ambushed the Aerial Fleet, ending the Nimbus missile threat and throwing Estovakia on the backfoot.
Over the next few months, Emmerian forces would see further victories, pushing ever closer to Gracemeria. On March 31, Emmerian forces launched Operation Free Gracemeria and successfully reclaimed their capital city. That evening, Estovakian officers opposing the cease-fire agreement utilized the Chandelier to launch a retaliatory strike against Gracemeria. The following day, the Republic of Emmeria Air Force flew to the Razgriz Straits and destroyed the Chandelier near Sonne Island, killing General Gustav Dvornik in the process.
In April, a cease-fire agreement was signed between Emmerian leaders and Estovakia's new government. The agreement ended the Emmeria-Estovakia War and re-established peaceful relations between the two nations.
By May 2016, reconstruction was already underway in various areas across Emmeria, especially in the capital city, Gracemeria.
Various names of locations are European sounding: Gracemeria, Sipli, Silvat, and Emmeria sound Eastern European, while Vitoze, Campagna, San Loma, Marcello, and Bartolomeo sound Italian. There are also miscellaneous names such as Ragno and Grageo. The people of Emmeria are mainly Caucasian and speak with American and occasionally British accents.
Emmeria is the largest nation on the Anean continent and therefore encompasses the majority of its land. Emmeria is home to a multitude of biomes, ranging from cold snowy mountainous regions to expansive desert regions. Emmeria also controls a number of islands and bodies of water, most notably, Khesed Island and the western Razgriz Straits.
The majority of Emmeria is surrounded by water, the Arctic Ocean to the north and the Fuscum Sea to the south. It also shares borders with Estovakia to the east and Nordennavic to the northwest.
Emmeria is a republic with its central government headed by a policitcal council. The government is also sub-divided into many departments and ministries including the Department of National Safety, in charge of intelligence and security, and the Emmerian Ministry of Science and Technology, which oversees all scientific and technological activities within the nation.
There is also a royal family present within the nation, however, their influence is less prominent.
Emmeria is a military superpower and supports a large military for defensive purposes. The Emmerian military is headed by the Joint Chiefs of Staff and is considered one of the most capable forces in the world. It is comprised of the Republic of Emmeria Air Force, the Republic of Emmeria Army (which supports a special forces division), and the Republic of Emmeria Navy (which supports a marine division).
Emmeria is a wealthy country and its economy is thriving due to its many prosperous industries. Their economic clout is evident in how quickly they recovered following the Ulysses Impact Event and in aiding Estovakia recover despite the recent disaster.
