- Pouv'ahx Cean' during his speech to the Nationalist Assembly about expansion

The Glistennaen National Republic is the empire of the Glistenna, a million year old species from the Milky Way Galaxy. Created in S.Y 2015 after a devastating conflict that forced the previous Glistennaen Empire to dissolve, it has long since recovered and is now trying to expand from a small group of planets into a empire that can successfully exert influence across a number of systems.

Interested in expanding and growing its military for possible conflicts, the Glistennaen National Republic is still however one of the smallest empires, with one of the smallest amounts of influence in the entire known universe. While it appears on the outside to be a perfectly normal Republic with an appealing democratic system, on the inside it is actually a corrupt oligarchy with vote rigging behind the scenes. However, it seems to most that the Nationalist Party winning almost every single election (the ones they don't win are won by the 'Liberal Democratic Party', in reality a puppet of the Nationalist Party) is just because of the immense popularity of the Nationalists.

Crime rates are also extremely high, although the Republic keeps this under wraps, mainly because most of the crime is sponsored by the government. Some crime isn't sponsored by the government, but the government will refuse to investigate the crime or prosecute the criminal offenders without a bribe, making the justice system almost completely obsolete.

HistoryEdit

Cell Stage YearsEdit

The Years of the Glistennaen Brown-Eye TribeEdit

Early Years of the Glistennaen EmpireEdit

The Glistennaen Empire was established in S.Y 91, a new civilization in the extensive Milky Way Galaxy. It occupied a small amount of land on a continent at first, but soon it grew to incorporate many continents as it rose. It would fight with other creatures on the planet known as Glisten, which would sadly only have around two and a half millennia left. That would later lead to the downfall of the Empire in what is called the Final War by many Glistenna, perhaps in a semi-ironic way, after the events of the Civil War.

It eventually however met its match, with the Auv'uelfy Tribes uniting to push it back. They were a loose confederation of Auv'uelfy peoples, an entirely different species. This 'eternal war' lasted around five hundred standard years, from S.Y 349 to S.Y 863, when the Auv'uelfy peoples were pushed back to their homeland, and a final offensive killed off the entire Auv'uelfy species, with their capital burnt to the ground.

This would be the first sentient species on the planet to be made extinct, and most certainly not the last. In S.Y 914, a minor allied empire-species of the Auv'uelfy Tribes, the Uaq'ihshue Confederation, were also made extinct with a final offensive. However, their capital was not burnt to the ground, instead it was completely renovated into being a far-flung naval colony of the Glistennaen Empire on Glisten.

The former Auv'uelfy capital would eventually suffer a similar fate, as in the year S.Y 1560 it was renovated into a military town, perhaps slightly ironically, considering it had been burnt to the ground by the Glistennaen military almost a millennium ago.

Later species would not be made extinct. Instead, later leaders would opt for forced integration into Glistennaen society. This happened with the Rhug'shunuag in S.Y 960, the Zhor'gia in the year 1432, and finally the Qrurgidh in the year 1521. Eventually these species would disappear, fully integrated into the Glistennan species through years of interspecies breeding.

The Twilight of the Glistennaen EmpireEdit

In S.Y 1792, the Glistennaen Empire reached the capability to launch a starship into space. However, with this advancement, came a new terrible revelation: their planet would become uninhabitable in a few hundred years. The Glistennaen Empire started to panic, and so the first starship they sent into space was to find new planets to live on.

This program would fail. Various systems they visited were hostile, and many starships they sent out were destroyed, leading to dismay in the Empire, mass-suicides, and many citizens being extremely depressed. Eventually, they resorted to building up a fleet, with the signature vessel being the National Arm, a vessel designed to destroy the enemy and conquer their cities.

Over the years they built up the fleet more and more, conscripting more and more citizens into training and military service. In S.Y 1981 they found a series of suitable candidates for settling in a far-flung galaxy. A plan was put together to settle these planets, and it was thought all of the militarism was for nothing.

Then, in S.Y 1992, they found species nearby. Relatively advanced species. The Empire once more began to panic, and with only a few hundred years left in the planet, and with resources running out extremely quickly due to the militarism and industrialization, the military once more had to put a plan together. This time, the plan was not just to settle the planets, but to force a quick surrender and force 'reparations' and help to the Glistennaens.

In late S.Y 2014, the final parts of the fleet were put together, and the fleet set out the following year, fully equipped for a war. This would be a fight to the death, a fight for survival.

The Final War for the Glistennaen EmpireEdit

In November 2015 the fleet arrived after a few day journey (they had not yet fully perfected FTL travel) in the necessary areas. However, the plan had been altered at the last minute to destroy the natives before settling. This would prove to be the bane of the Glistennaen Empire, as locals refused to collaborate with the militaristic empire, and instead turned to help the Chostvan Soyuz, another power, which soon formed the 'United Alliance', an alliance of natives who opposed the (unknown at the time, as the natives originally thought the Glistennaens were a predator race) ambitions of the Glistennaen Empire.

The 'United Alliance' and the fleet came to blows over the planet of Minerva, which ended in a Glistennaen defeat, with the fleet commander, Kmouv'alk Strauv'esk, taken prisoner by the United Alliance. This was an embarrassing defeat, as the goal of the capture of the planet by the Glistennaens had been fueled by an ambition to scare the natives into submission, and instead it gave them hope and a morale boost against the Glistennaen Empire.

The Glistennaen Empire attempted to scare the natives one more time, this time using tactics that would effectively be called 'war crimes'. They killed over 250,000 citizens of S.P.C in the takeover and the following S.P.C Civilian Uprising, before they were forced out by criminal gangs, the S.P.C Police Force, militias, and the army of S.P.C. This was, once more, a devastating defeat, and a war crime because they had committed genocide upon the civilian population as reprisals for minor uprisings. Eventually this mutated into the full-on Civilian Uprising, with almost every single civilian in S.P.C involved. The commander who ordered the reprisals was later executed for war crimes.

Kmouv'alk Strauv'esk, committed to the survival of the Glistenna, heard of the war crimes and soon agreed to collaborate in creating a new rival Glistennaen government once the United Alliance had heard of his goals, mainly out of fear for what would happen to all of the Glistenna if he did not, and the death of the Glistennaens completely. As he famously said, "It is better to live in complete defeat than to not live at all!".

After many more battles between the Glistennaens and the United Alliance, the United Alliance had won. The Glistennaen National Republic was instated as the successor state with Kmouv'alk Strauv'esk at the helm of the National Republic after an election. He became the first President of the National Republic, a position that would later be changed to be named Kmouv' after Kmouv'alk Strauv'esk himself after his death.

The Rise of the National RepublicEdit

As soon as the war ended with the disintegration of the Glistennaen Empire, the Glistennaens once more looked for a home planet. With help from the United Alliance they found a good new home planet in the Milky Way Galaxy, and with more help from the United Alliance, billions upon billions of Glistennaens were transferred over to the new home planet, Glisten-Home.

Under the direction of Kmouv'alk Strauv'esk new cities and shipyards were built, and other planets in the system were colonised. Eventually more systems would be colonised under both Kmouv'alk Strauv'esk and later leaders. Citizens learned various crafts in order to survive on the new planet, and invented new creations, ships, and games for their new life on Glisten-Home.

New colony ships were launched around the system and nearby systems, colonising a hundred planets, and later around four hundred more planets would be colonised by the Glistennaen National Republic. Things were looking up for the National Republic, and once more for the Glistennaens, as a massive Golden Age commenced.

Artists made new works, writers wrote new works, and far-flung trade colonies were settled to trade new goods with other races. Some small races joined the Glistennaen National Republic as the first new National Republics

Kmouv'alk's EndEdit

Kmouv'alk was 59 when he became President, and he has lead us throughout the ages. We shall honour him by renaming the Presidency to the position of Kmouv'!

- Nationalist Party Quote

Kmouv'alk was 137 when he died in S.Y 2093, after a long period of prosperity in the National Republic. He had lived for a long time, guiding the National Republic through the years from small refugee nation into a power that stretched across hundreds of planets and moons. The Nationalist Party began to panic, as Kmouv' was the guiding light of the National Republic, and without him they might lose their no-election-lost streak they had been successfully keeping up since the foundation of the Glistennaen National Republic in S.Y 2015.

And with his death, corruption arose. The Nationalist Party needed more money, as donations were no longer happening just because Kmouv'alk was in power. They began turning to crime, extorting money, scamming citizens, murdering moderately rich citizens for their money, and other criminal activities in order to gain money for votes.

Then, the crime for votes turned into crime for personal greed. Party members and leaders started to fill their coffers with money gained from the criminal activities, and the Nationalist Party started resorting to rigging votes, refusing to hand over their money to people who might break the agreement of paying for votes. They also began murdering those who went back on their voting promises, forcing a boot down on the face of the Glistenna... forever.

They then started to murder opposition leaders to shut them up, not even for money. After a series of low-profile murders (media oligarchs and businessmen soon learned to have their allegiances in line with the Nationalist Party), the only influential parties were the Nationalists and the Liberal Democrats (who were effectively a puppet party of the Nationalists). The Nationalist Party at this point turned from wanting votes for power and wanting votes to continue their streak into gaining more money. The Liberal Democrats were given a try at having a few years in office in order to throw off suspicion by some outsiders and even some citizens of the National Republic (and they did absolutely nothing apart from symbolic acts due to the Nationalists controlling their leadership), and this actually worked. Along with a series of secret brainwashing policies by the Nationalist Party, soon citizens were saying that the Nationalists were the best future for everyone, whether through brainwashing, threats, torture, or even just plain old love for the Nationalist Party.

And so the dystopia began to rise. The justice system began to get greedy too, refusing to investigate crimes that were committed by the government (investigating those crimes wouldn't exactly help them survive in the political world) in return for a small cut of the money the government stole off the people of the Glistennaen National Republics. And the crimes that weren't committed by the government were only investigated if they weren't linked at all to the government (many crime bosses were friendly to the government), and if the person who wanted the crimes investigated paid the justice system a hefty amount of money. The government got crimes investigated for free, as did their friends.

Kmouv'alk turned from the figure that had lead the Glistennaen National Republic forward into 'Spode incarnate', as one foreign visitor to the Glistennaen National Republic remarked when he had returned home. Indeed, a cult of personality was beginning to form. Pictures of Kmouv'alk were put up on street corners, and in most town squares a simulated moving portrait of Kmouv'alk himself saluting the citizens of the Glistennaen National Republic stood, richly fitted with offerings at the foot of the portrait, wonderful smelling plants surrounding it, and in some rich towns, a crown at the top of the screen. It became a capital offence to take the offerings. Destroying the flowers was punishable by torture. And finally, stealing the crown... that was punishable by a long and painful death.

And so bad things started to happen across the Republic. Citizens were taken from their homes in the middle of the night, quietly and secretly, and a new family would move in the next day, cheerful as ever, and happy Nationalist voters. Keeping the people who hadn't committed crimes content was the new goal of the Nationalist Party. New museums and zoos opened, new circuses began to tour Glisten-Home, and free vacations to lake resorts, mountain resorts, and island resorts were given out by the government.

The government then stopped extorting the rich, as they drifted into the new sphere of influence that would donate to the Nationalists and no crime was needed to get their money. Instead, the government turned to extorting and stealing the money of the poor, which sounded like a stupid idea at first, but since the poor were gaining more and more money every single day thanks to the growing economy funded by foreign investors (who were not stolen from in order to keep a utopian look on the face of the Glistennaen National Republic), the money from extorting and stealing from the poor was soon being raked in by various government members. Party members, party leaders, judges, lawyers (who by this point in the justice system were given a small cut in return for making their client sound bad and at the same time managing to pull the illusion of a defense), and even party janitors got a cut of the profits from the newly-robbed poor of the National Republic.

Socialist groups began to rise up, with underground socialist groups establishing themselves across various towns and districts. They would lead a terrible war for the Glistennaen National Republic, a Civil War was upon the National Republic.

The Glistennaen Civil WarEdit

On the 8th of January S.Y 2101, Nationalist Kmouv' Knoev'ork Fax'okxe was blown up by a bomb as he spoke to the Nationalist Assembly of the Glistennaen National Republics. Along with him almost twenty representatives perished, and the Liberal Democratic Party and the Nationalist Party soon turned to the smaller political parties. Twelve more representatives perished in the following mass-murder of the extremely small parties, as the Nationalists, the Liberal Democrats, and parties with a normal amount of support attacked every representative of an extremely small party in sight. Many more were injured, a lot severely.

The bomb had been planted and the assassination planned by the Anarcho-Socialist 'Glistennaen Unionist League'. The Party was shocked, and they quickly elected a new leader known only as 'The Leader'. Imprisonment of Trade Unionists, Socialists, Communists, and other left-wingers began. Under a threat of torture, one revealed the conspirators.

On January the 23rd and the 24th mass executions began. Finally, listening to the last request of the leader of the assassination, their execution was postponed to the January 25th so they could have sunlight in their last moments, unlike the 23rd and 24th, which were appropriately miserable days with storms and rain covering Glisten-Home.

And on the 25th of January, Ipuhs Huax'eorst, leader of the assassination plot, was ordered to sit upright on a wooden plank on a scaffold. A rope was placed around their neck, the plank removed, and at 8.19 A.M, after 18 minutes of strangulation, Ipuhs Huax'eorst was dead, with sunlight beaming down on the scaffold. Doctors quickly prononced Ipuhs Huax'eorst dead, and they burnt the body of Ipuhs Huax'eorst immediately in order to prevent it from being stolen back by the Glistennaen Unionist League. A sympathetic doctor however did give the remains and ashes from the cremation to the Glistennaen Unionist League, who buried the remains with full honours in Hauptstadt National Graveyard and scattered the ashes across Hauptstadt, capital of the Chostvan Soyuz, with various government officials of the Chostvan Soyuz in attendance.

And so, on January 28th 2101, eighty eight socialist cells across the capital of the Glistennaen National Republic, Glisten-Home, rose up. Drive-by shootings killing government members happened in the first few minutes of the uprising, then bombs went off in government buildings, thanks to sympathetic smaller party members and security guards. Nationalist and Liberal Democratic Party members were soon dead, as were members of other parties that had not been warned about the attacks. In the shipyards workers gunned down their managers and 'oppressors', and in military bases recruits and workers working at the military bases shot soldiers and officers.

The Glistennaen Civil War had begun. Some troops opened fire on workers, others joined the workers. Battle ensued in the streets and across the planet. Soon, armed merchant vessels and Chostvan donations had become the bulk of the Trade Unionist Fleet. They attempted to destroy various battleships in their shipyards, and many succeeded in wiping out large parts of the Glistennaen National Fleet. Fighters scrambled to engage in combat with the Trade Unionist Fleet, but first strikes wiped out many of the fighters.

Fighters and ships began to be brought in from the colonies to fight for Glisten-Home. Battles ensued on major routes and near planets, and some planets were practical battlefields for the Trade Unionists and Nationalists. Chostvan fighters secretly engaged the Nationalists in combat, although the Chief Executive of the Chostvan Soyuz denied these 'slanderous remarks'.

And so the war went on. However, the Trade Unionists eventually began to fall, as their armed merchant vessels were soon overpowered, and Chostvan support trickled out. Glisten-Home was under full Nationalist control by the 2nd of February, and by the 28th August 2101, the Civil War had ended, albeit at a price...

Victory and IsolationismEdit

The economy was in shambles, although it was being rebuilt. Many parts of the fleet were destroyed, never to be seen again. Many civilians and troops had died in the war as well. The Nationalist Party began to rebuild gradually, and although still corrupt, it tried to be much more secretive and loving to the average citizen, while still cracking down hard on dissenters.

The economy had to be rebuilt. More foreign investment was needed, and so the government began to make a perfect market for foreign investment. Foreign investors were soon flocking to invest, although many workers were still disgruntled, and so a series of reforms came into place, most just symbolic acts, and very few actually doing anything for the workers. However, people were rich once more, and foreign investors were gaining money rapidly and building up business empires and hedge funds.

The nation was still extremely isolationist however. They didn't want another direct war with anyone after how devastating the 'Final War' had been. The nation continued to grow the economy and grow the standards of life. Life was good for most citizens in the National Republic. Internal trade routes and regular star-ship services began, helping the economy grow even more than ever. The nation started to produce more military vehicles and weaponry, becoming a militaristic state once more, and in the process growing the economy and repairing the holes left in the fleet by the Glistennaen Civil War.

Around this time a new National Arm design was developed, in order to modernise the fleet. The new National Arm had better weaponry, better shielding, and wa much faster in combat, as well as having improved FTL travel capability. Hundreds of thousands of them were built in order to facilitate the need for a larger fleet than ever before, as the nation was planning to come out of isolation with an improved economy within a few hundred years.

Coming out of the ShellEdit

After a period of rebuilding the economy from S.Y 2101 to S.Y 2408, the economy was finally ready again after 307 years of redevelopment. It was at its peak and a second Golden Age had begun, with more artists and writers than ever before. Kmouv'alk's reign was beginning to look smaller and smaller in a greatness comparison, and so the government once more enhanced him not just to 'Spore incarnate', but as the god and creator of all Glistennaens, ignoring the obvious fact Kmouv'alk had been born in S.Y 1956.

New places opened for citizens to go, as new restaurants and railway lines opened up, taking citizens to where they had never been before, in both taste and travel. The government began to also hand out domesticated animals with care packages to couples, trying to prepare them for a larger family than ever before, as birth rates averaged higher than ever, with a population boom on both Glisten-Home and the colonies. Couples and families were also given vehicles, money, and food as incentives to have more children, helping the population boom even more, and helping to grow the economy over time, as more and more foreign companies began to invest.

Then... the news of the death of Glisten came. It was not dead, but now just unsuitable for life. No lifeform could live there anymore, it was now a barren landscape with almost no resources, and a sad place to be. As a last gesture to Glisten, the remaining species from Glisten were evacuated to Glisten-Home as part of the National Evacuation from Glisten Program, and this influx of new species provided a new food source for the Glistenna, but also interfered with the food chain severely.

Also around this time the brutal punishments for defacing Kmouv'alk also stopped, with Kmouv'alk secretly being hated in the party, but his god-like following kept up by the population, and the party in everyday life. Secretly, party members would take turns denouncing Kmouv'alk and finding his faults. Others considered him responsible for the death of the Empire, as they thought that if he had escaped and helped the Empire, the Glistennaen Empire would have won the Final War and they would be a gigantic power, better than they were. The population thought nothing of the brutal punishments ending, mainly because they and the foreign investors didn't know much about them in the first place.

Kmouv'alk's position was being reconsidered. In a few years the party had gone from honestly worshiping him, to hating him in secret for destroying the Glistennaen Empire and the so-called 'glory of the Glistennaen Empire'. The Liberal Democratic Party was given another shot at being the leaders of the nation again, to throw off suspicion of vote-rigging once more. As usual, the Liberal Democratic Party did nothing but symbolic acts for their entire term.

However, with Kmouv'alk's position being reconsidered, the Nationalists had changed. And with the change came new ideas. Ideas that the nation was powerful enough in both military and economic terms to jump onto the international stage, and so in S.Y 2763, a new policy was enacted...

Modern DayEdit

On the 14th of October S.Y 2763, the policy of Selective Trading with Equal & Powerful Empires was enacted. This meant equal empires and empires more powerful than the Glistennaen National Republic would be traded with if possible, in order to become a trade hub in the Milky Way Galaxy. This was moderately successful, as the far-flung colonies turned into trade colonies over time, and the large population on the homeworld of Glisten-Home and the surrounding colonies provided an industrial base. The large fleet allowed for the merchant vessels to also be protected, and for the National Republic to protect itself, and expand its influence around neighbouring systems in the Milky Way Galaxy. The fleet was also good enough to wage war successfully.

On the following day, the 15th of October S.Y 2763, the first trade ships set out for the various empires. Trade ships set out for the Krinkut Union, the Kalda Polyarchy (the businessmen there were a good market for the luxurious trade goods that were being sent out on the trade ships), Herame Republic, and other minor powers. Trade ships also went out to the Elzie Empire, Ransio Empire, and Minga Theocracy. Finally, trade ships also went out to the Zoles Imperium, and other nations in Borealis, a good market for the resources the Glistennaens had.

Trade ships would later be sent out to the Empire of the Murgur, Rovegar Matriarchy, and the Seagon Cryptocracy in later years when they finally were discovered or formed.

In S.Y 2804 the Glistennaen National Republic joined the Polar Crystal Alliance as a new and curious member, looking for new trade opportunities and lifeforms and empires to ally with, to expand the markets, and to act as a deterrent to any pirates that might try and disrupt Glistennaen shipping throughout the Milky Way Galaxy. One of the newest alliance members, the Glistennaens also hope to become a minor group in the diplomatic world with the new position of members of the Polar Crystal Alliance.

The standards of life are now relatively good in the Glistennaen National Republic, although corruption is heavy in the government, and crime is rife on most planets and in most systems. The economy is booming and now is better than ever, with the new trade routes contributing heavily to the success of the economy of the Glistennaen National Republics. Glisten-Home is a bustling port planet with a massive population, the largest in the entire Glistennaen National Republic. The Trade Routes also bring in a lot of money for the government and foreign investors, stuffing the coffers of party members and foreign investors more than ever before.

The Glistennaen National Republic also joined the Mou'Cyran Accords, becoming a full member with assistance from the New Cyrannian Republic, who the National Republic allied with following negotiations by Apollo, Proconsul of the New Cyrannian Republic and representative of the Mou'Cyran Accords. The alliance is mutually beneficial, and a trade agreement has also been arranged by Apollo and Pouv'ahx Cean', National Kmouv' of the Glistennaen Natioanl Republic, as well as a number of trade routes connecting the New Cyrannian Republic capital of Mou'Cyran and the Glistennaen National Republics capital of Glisten-Home.
