Siwi, officially known as the Kingdom of Siwi Kondre (Chona: Kownukondre vu Siwi; Tipsprek: , tr. Keizeresryk fan Zeevilkonder), is a transcontinental semi-constitutional monarchy located in Southern Avalonia, the South Tethys and West Kesh. Siwi covers an area approximately 2,060,000 square kilometers, with a population of 132 million as of 2017.
Tchiawpi has been continually occupied by humans for over 1.5 million years, with organised communities and large scale construction for approximately 6000-8000 years. Small irrigation projects have been discovered that are over 10,000 years old, with first signs of large scale organised communities carrying out irrigation projects on the Wiphala river since 5,100BC and on the Loa river since 4,800BC. This long history and extensive knowledge of irrigation, canal building and water retention, along with crops suited to it, have led to the region being a major food basket for the region for thousands of years.
Tchiawpi has been home to three major ancient civilisations dating before 1100AD. The first was the Paracas civilisation, from 800 to 350BC which occupied the southern coasts of the Paracas from Urubamba bay to Sinaya, centered on the Red valley and Sinayan lowlands. This empire's successor state was the Neo-Paracas civilisation, from 160BC to 190AD, an empire centered on the two capitals: Tchetchuan in the west and Old Tullanen in the east. It is believed a prolonged dry period led to the collapse of both empires.
Wars of Religion
During the period between the collapse of the Neo-Paracas Civilisation and the rise of the Luerbache Empire, there was a widespread time of conflict and popular unrest throughout the Paracas region, although primarily focused in the Tchiawpi region. A schism in the Inunaist religion of the Chona and Che peoples, between traditional polytheism (Inunaism) and the new reformed monotheism (Nunaism) exacerbated existing tensions of ambitious post-imperial warlords, peasant revolts, ethnic strife and resource conflicts.
The polytheists (Inunaism) believed that the monotheist (Nunaism) teachings would fall victim to absolutism and fundamentalism under a monotheistic "perfect" deity and would cause all to fail this cycle of Eternal Return. After around 200 years of intermittent and often unrelated conflicts, the monotheist (Nunaism) movement was effectively wiped out, confined to a few remote holdout communities. During the time of conflict, the monotheists built thousands of forts, redoubts, grottoes and caves, often carved into the sides of cliff faces and mountains, to defend their communities. Rock-cut architecture became something of a cultural practice of the monotheists, however many of these surviving structures have been repurposed into strongholds by modern insurgent groups.
The Luerbache Empire of the Che people, existed from 950 to 1100AD, starting on the Betellen river in modern Arumpampa, it spread to the coast then conquered the river valleys of Tchiawpi. Its collapse was brought about by ethnic conflict between the Che conquerors and the majority Chona eastern half of the empire. The Luerbache Empire survived as a rump state until it was conquered by the Chona Empire in the 13th century, however following the collapse of the Chona Empire, it reemerged as the Neo-Luerbache State.
In the summer of 1627, the Tiperyn colonial mission received royal authority to commence colonisation of the Paracas coast, specifically the Tchiawpi region, to exploit its silver mines and cash crops. Through the 17th and 18th century the Tiperyn colonial authority, later reorganised as the Viceroyalty of Pauwonia, through peaceful assimilation, violent conquest and power brokering between rivals, managed to effectively dominate the Tchiawpi region below the Tropic of Capricorn, with goals to expand further north.
In 1654, the Tiperyn colonial mission achieved its first great victory by conquering and colonising the Principality of Loa (a Chona Empire successor state) and four years later conquering its vassal state, Mukallin.
From 1730 to 1810, the Pauwonian "Territorial Corps" (also known as the "Native Army") made several expeditions up the Loa river to attempt to conquer the Lampa State of the Aytakatnu valley, the first 4 of these expeditions failed to varying degrees. However the fifth expedition, the Rjinders-Kelsey Expedition, a punitive expedition in repayment for the previous defeated expedition, managed to successfully capture the hill pass central to control of the river valley. The pass was renamed Kelsey's Gap in honour of the expedition.
De Vries War
The De Vries War was a political crisis and conflict in the Viceroyalty of Pauwonia, initially a popular revolution caused by economic policy supporting frontier development at the expense of southern landowners, it later became a large scale internecine conflict leaving the native Chona vassal states in the position to sieze power, ostensibly under the direction of the Tiperyn homeland. In 1857, a treaty was signed between Tiperyn and the Chona lords representing Pauwonia to recognize the independence of Siwi Kondre.
Siwi Kondre began a campaign of imperial expansion through the 1890-1920s, purchasing Pukara, Nideroccia and Kaminey, and invading Betellania and Cervera. During this period Siwi Kondre developed a powerful navy and an aggressive foreign policy, attempting to wrestle domination of the Southern Sea and Southern Avalonia from other nations.
1886-1912, a military dictatorship under war hero Generalissimo Huenchamilla Mudka, and his successor when he got too old to do it full time, Generalissimo Andreas Kapalla-Astaña. Their conquest of the South Sea islands (that become the Overseas Territorial Region) from AyG and Tiperyn, and the planning of the campaign to invade Betellania. Them being pushed out by the equally as Imperialist King Mikael Pachu.
The first half of the 20th century, when Siwi Kondre was one of the most modern and strong countries in the world. Exporting raw materials heavily to West Artemia and East Kesh. And capitalising on technological developments like; commercially viable refrigerated ships, early typewriter and teletypewriter systems and synthetic rubber & plastic
Decline & Interregnum
Slowing of Siwi Kondre's economic power and weakening of its military and political power. Transition from a neoliberal free market economy, to a pseduo-socialist coordinated market economy
80s to 2010s
Just a general slow trend of decline, with two economic booms (late 1980s due to Viral Control Project increasing maize & sugarcane exports)&(mid 2000s due to Uka-Chae Maize increasing agricultural exports) and a recession in the early 2010s. Political problems begin to emerge as the monarchy's authority and reputation falter and the people begin to lose faith in the government. Lowest point of Siwi military, economic and political power.
Following the end of the Civil War, the new government emerged, with the pre-existing civilian government under the semi-constitutional control of the monarchy, although in all matters the new government is subservient to the military dictatorship of Generalissimo Juan-Loka Paskuarin who rose to prominence during the Civil War.
Paskuarin's government has been primarily focused on ending the continued insurgency, rooting out any remnants who may pose a risk to Siwi Kondre's future security, and working to pay off the foreign debts incurred during the war. Numerous human rights violations have been reported by the new government.
Siwi possesses a significant economic divide between the Southern coastal provinces and the Northern interior provinces. The Southern provinces were historically better funded, more populous and more developed by government and private enterprise. Meanwhile Northern provinces found themselves being ignored and underfunded outside of mining sites, considering themselves to be economically exploited by Southern business.
The Southern provinces maintain a higher average income than the Northern provinces, leading Southern provincial politics to support and enforce restrictions on the ability of Northerners to migrate south for economic betterment. Viewing the Northerners as undereducated, criminal, barbaric and welfare abusers, stealing money from Southern taxpayers to provide for themselves.
This bred resentment in Northerners, leading to socialist and nationalist leaning provincial political groups to rise in the North, viewing Southerners as corrupted by colonial capitalist society and culture, even in language as the colonial creole Bakrataal was dominant in the South and the National Diet, while Chona was dominant in the North. Ideas of wealth redistribution and national expansion appealed to the impoverished Northerners.
In spite of government initiatives to spur development in the North, this economic divide continued to widen until the Civil War, in part due to Southern political groups blocking or even stealing the development funds. Following the Civil War, reconstruction efforts have been organised to bring the North in line with Southern politics, while attempting to unify both groups under a new nationalistic banner.
The Siwi Defence Forces (Siwi Kondre Amatchay Legre) are subject to royal control through the Generalissimo (Commander-in-Chief of the Defence Forces), although only the Nationaal Gendarmerie answers to royal authority through the civilian government. The Defence Forces are organised into four branches:
- Siwi Kondre Qonikliq Legre (Siwi Royal Army)
- Siwi Kondre Loftlegre (Siwi Air-Army)
- Siwi Kondre Qonikliq Marin (Siwi Royal Navy)
- Nationaal Gendarmerie (National Gendarmerie)
Prior to the Siwi Civil War, the Defence Forces (excluding the Nationaal Gendarmerie) had around 1.4 million personnel. Approximately 1 million of those personnel were in the Royal Army, including auxiliary and reserves. The standing force of the Royal Army was 280,200 as of 2014.
