History of The Federation Of South KordomEdit
The Federation of South Kordom has had a long and unique past. The nation came into friution during the 10th centuary as the two separate nations of The Kingdom of Kordom and The island state of Koran. Life went on peacefully until the 19th centuary in the two nations. The Kingdom of Kordom had a revolution and overthrew their monarchy. A brutal cival war soon erupted, between two main sides, divided along ethnic lines. The Jarup people wanted the Kingdom of Kordom to become a Communist state, while the Brota people wanted it to become a capitalist state. After 4 years of war, two nations were born, North Kordom and South Kordom. It was during this time the Island state of Koran started to communicate with the mainland. All 3 nations lived peacefully for about 75 years, with the two Kordoms even working together to help Keyholeland become an independant state from the Depressive Emipre. Then North Kordom became troubled. The nation had an aging workforce and had spent too much on their people and had borrowed too much. The nation survived only for 2 more years until it collapsed and became the Republic of Marsodia, with their debt wiped out. The meant South Kordom was left with the Island of Koran.A tunnel was bulit between the two nations shortly after, called the Kordom Tunnel. Soon after, a referendum was cast in Koran to ask wether they should join South Kordom. The Yes campaign won with over 91% of the votes cast. South Kordom became a fully fleged state with the newly named Hanjakoran island part of their nation. The Whitelands came into contact soon after the joining of the islands, by helping get rid of Erezin Halla Seperatists in the south of the nation.
