The Jovar Socialist Republic (occasionally referred to as the Greater Jovar Empire) was the eventual result of Jem'rar's ultimate goal of splitting the Jovar Empire into two separate nations, with the other half being the much weaker Joran Planet Alliance. Unlike it's federal counterpart, the JSR, secretly run by the massive Twin Suns of Osion Intergalactic Bank, set up an authoritarian oligarchical government on the planet of Osion, promoting the ideas of militarism, imperialism, and national/racial pride. Though widely unpopular to many of the former Jovar Empire's allies, the JSR succeeded at the intergalactic level, consistently keeping up a high level of economic and cultural successes (due in part to T.S.O.I.B), and sporting one of the largest militaries in the entire Gigaquadrant.

History Edit

Rule of Jem'rarEdit

Officially, the JSR was formed only days after Osion's secession from the Jovar Empire, with the rapid secession of several thousand more star systems. This was mostly due to a desire not to lose economic assets contained within T.S.O.I.B; thus, most star systems remained loyal to the bank, not the government or the chancellor of the JE. Jem'rar, the nation's founder, was ecstatic at the news, believing that he had delivered a decisive blow against his foes within the newly formed JPA.

Almost immediately, Jem'rar set up a new government, based on Osion, with two main branches, the legislative branch, made up of the Grand Parliament, and the Council of Twelve, the "executive branch" of the Socialist Republic, headed by Jem'rar himself, who had total authority over the rest of the Council. Unlike the Grand Parliament, members of the Council of Twelve were not voted into power by the people, but instead ruled indefinitely. This effectively created a strong, central oligarchical government for the new nation.

In only a matter of time, a police state was set up as a temporary means to control the rowdy and somewhat rebellious population. Though force was rarely used, with mostly threats used as a means to quell uprisings, there were exceptions: on Osion, hundreds of protesters were mobbed in the streets of Pryrait, the capital, as a means of providing a worthy example to the population of the consequences that disobedience brought upon individuals.

In the following year, the Jovar citizens were forced to adjust to the socialistic and authoritarian ways of the new nation, though most ordinary citizens were unwaivered by the drastic changes in social policy. In fact, most were content with the change, as Jem'rar's new government had brought along modernized industries, goods, services, and transportation, greatly increasing th standard of living in the Republic. In the meantime, the Joran Planet Alliance, enemies of the JSR, suffered through terrible economic downturn. Jem'rar used this as a means to propagate the Alliance's republican ways as weak, and as the authoritarian government of his new nation as more effective and prosperous.

However, in only a matter of years, Jem'rar's original belief began to quickly crumble. The JPA suddenly grew drastically economically, and began to challenge even T.S.O.I.B in power and influence amongst the smaller nations of the region. Outraged by this, as well as the sudden growth in the JPA's military, Jem'rar ordered the secret mobilization of the JSR's fleet along the border, hoping to stop the JPA from reaching her full potential.

Only by direct orders from the Confederacy did the JSR back down from their mobilization efforts, and in only a matter of weeks life in both nations returned to normal. The JSr continued to grow in military strength, and her industries continually grew beyond the intergalactic average. It seemed that the JSR was destined to exceed the strength of the Jovar Empire, and in only a fraction of the time.

Rule of the Council of TwelveEdit

But then, in a rather unusual twist of events, Jem'rar and T.S.O.I.B were ousted out of power by the remaining Council of Twelve members, under rather obscure circumstances. It seemed that in only a few years, the JSR was now undergoing her own civil war. The citizens of the new nation began to panic. they were relieved that Jem'rar's dictatorship was over, but were fearful that something far worse may take its place.

Thankfully for them, they were wrong. Instead, the new oligarchy, which ruled alongside the Grand Parliament, sought to increase the rights of citizens. Free press was enacted, and a new system of welfare was installed that supported the disabled and aged. Universal suffrage, both male and female, was given to all citizens that voted for members of the Grand Parliament, and put less limits on the nation's economy. The people rejoiced, living now freer and happier lives. They soon began to live under the slogan of "Hard work is happy work", and though they were unable to vote on members of the executive branch, were greatly supportive of them, due to their lack of oppression.

Socialism continued within the nation, however unlike many other socialists nations, the Council of Twelve sought to be as fair and just to their population as possible. Thus, standards were made relatively high for citizens to abide to, and as far as the rulers were convinced, they were practicing their socialist ideals as they were intended to be followed. However, most capitalist nations and superpowers alike were convinced that the socialist policies of the JSR were evil and corrupt. They based their rash judgement simply by precedent, citing that nearly every socialist nation before her had been corrupted by greed, power, and money; thus, they concluded that the citizens were mostly ill-treated. Though the JSR tried to counter these arguments, citing the massively high rates in quality-of-life figures, the capitalist and republican nations (the JPA included) refused to relent, continuing to berate the JSR as a filthy dictatorship.

Despite her negative criticism, the JSR only grew more in power, influence, and wealth, all without the aid of T.S.O.I.B. Remarkably, the JSR was able to surpass the total wealth and influence of the Jovar Empire by only the fifth year of her existence. Thus, the Grand Parliament and Council of Twelve both began to call the Socialist Republic by the new title of Greater Jovar Empire to highlight this achievement, though the name remained only a cultural and symbolic one, and not an official, political one.

Meanwhile, the nation continued to expand and grow, expanding her outer borders both in the Milky Way and Galaxon. By the end of the fourth year after her formation, the nation had 2,200,000 colonies, 200,000 lying in Galaxon and 1,000,000 in the Milky Way. In addition, her military grew even more so than before, and by the end of the fourth year, the number of star cruisers alone under her possession was nearly 600,000, and growing daily. Many nations, particularly the Gjigantrox Interstellar Empire, were alarmed by this, calling this action "an act of war." Further condemnation of this, as well as the continued use of socialism, would draw the two nations to war within the Galaxon Galaxy, in a conflict known rather simply as the Galaxon War.

ReconquistaEdit

During the turmoil of The Split, the Jovar Empire lost the entire outer rim Ferginar territory to a coalition consisting of relatively small Tier 4 nations, collectively calling themselves the Bremrard. The Bremrards had been forced to pay heavy tariffs to the Jovar Empire for decades; with the internal social collapse of the Empire, the Bremrard were able to seize the territory with relative ease, as most Jovar forces were fighting within the Empire's central core planets.

The ascension of the Jovar Socialist Republic, however, prevented any continued growth of the Bremrard Coalition. As Ferginar was a territory bordering the Jovar Socialist Republic, the Council of Twelve found it only necessary to reclaim the small, yet important territory, which was a major industrial asset to the otherwise weak and poor northern portion of the empire. Sending in massive fleets of Star Destroyers, Star Cruisers, and Star Dreadnoughts, the JSR's combined firepower was far too overwhelming for the Bremrard to handle: one soldier was to eventually compare the battle with the analogy that, "...the Bremrard are a group of tribals when compared to our Navy; there is no fair fight."

Labelled Reconquista, the JSR retook all 10,000 planets in a matter of weeks. However, Reconquista was to have a much more lasting impact. The campaign, while short and nearly bloodless in its own right, helped to spark a renewed interest in imperialism. Thus, the JSR continued in its conquests, and soon Reconquista began to encompass the newfound foreign policy that the Jovar Socialist Republic seemed to have adopted overnight. Hundreds of species and nations were conquered and enslaved, and the new empire that the JSR had become encompassed nearly 1,300,000 systems within six months of the doctrine's proposal. This policy was much to the chagrin of the rest of the Board of the G8, however the JSR continued with the policy anyway.

TerritoriesEdit

The Jovar Socialist Republic is much larger than her rival/enemy, the Joran Planet Alliance, and owns the majority of the Jovar Empire's original territories. Her territories currently consist of 2,200,000 colonies in total, with 200,000 in the Galaxon Galaxy, and the remainder lying within the Milky Way. Osion, the capital, lies within the heart of the Plazith Rim territories, straggling remarkably close to Jora, the homeworld of the Jovar and the capital of the JPA.

MilitaryEdit

See Fiction:Jovar Socialist Republic/Navy for more info

Only three short years after The Split, the Jovar Socialist Republic' military prowess exceeded the maximum height of the original Jovar Empire's original fleet size, tallying in at a landmark 1.2 million capital ships. From then on, production only increased further. More than 3 billion Jovar soldiers currently serve in the JSR armed forces, excluding maritime, naval, and Ursian Order troops. Total armament quantities are nearly double of the JE's maximum height, and the fleet currently stands at nearly 2.7 million capital ships. This massive influx in both military size and expenditures is due entirely to the JSR's militarism, which promotes mass-military strength, growth, and involvement across all aspects of society and culture. This tradition was originally practiced in the ancient Jovar Empire, though it ceased to exist prominently with the beginnings of intergalactic partnerships and alliances.

Even to this very day, the JSR's military continues to grow. With the ongoing Galaxon War, the JSR's new tools of destruction are currently being tested for the first time, and with great success as of the present moment. As the Council of Twelve see it (quoted from Bismarck):

The great questions of the day will not be settled by means of speeches and majority decisions, but by iron and blood.
