Les Pacifiques Etats Confédérés de Phenixia
The Peaceful Confederate States of Phenixia
La question de l'origine du peuplement du monde-anneau occupe depouis longtemps la communeauté scientifique
Histoire Officielle :
As many other nations on Alliance the origins of the Phenixian nation are full of myths and mystery. However if scholars continue to argue endlessly about the reliability of legends, the popular feeling is very strong. Phenixians represent themselves as the heirs of a multi-national crew of a spaceship named UNSS (for United Nations Space Ship) Phenix that crashed on Alliance in the 1st decade AP. They found there the remains of a civilization destroyed by a plague and very few survivors. They lost most of their technology in the crash. The lack of many material they were dependent on (Steel, Aluminium, Coal, Petrol...) was another problem.
Many important families trace their descent to a mythical folk hero supposed to belong to that crew. This story allows for the many languages spoken in Phenixia. But, some languages on Alliance are quite similar, like Westlandese and Davenportian or Lusitanian and Lendian. Untamed by this reflection, some pretend that the other peoples of Alliance came by different space-ships from the same source. Others simply explain the whole story as a legend and defend the local origin of mankind.
1st Civil War (25-29 AP) : While many Phenixians were simply struggling for life following the crash, the first states emerged. A struggle for power broke out between Francie and Bundesreich and hostilities lasted for 6 months. Then a settlement allowed for a long priod of peace and development, the states passing from 12 to 120.
When those countries tried to export their "revolution" a short war broke out opposing 80 out of 120 states. Few collateral dommage were perpetrated as military operation occurred principally out of the major settlements and small arms only were used. After 8 months of severe fighting around Polaquie ad Albiq, peace came back.
Merité War (997-998) : Estontetso is a now extinct kingdom Forward of Phenixia and Merité a mysterious force from a distant continent. Christiana is an island distant in the Tribord Ocean. The Northern tip of Phenixia was seized by Estontetso shortly before the collapse of that state. At that time, no foreign contact was made and thus, instead of turning it back to Phenixia, the UNV tasked Christiana to police the sector. Unpatient to recover their homes abandonned some weeks ago, the norther Phenixian refugees passed the border en-masse during what was called The Green March (see the Northern Phenixia page). Meritéan agents outpassed the instruction of their government and turned the pacific demonstration in a bloody massacre firing both at the unarmed mob and at Christianian troops causing the death of a member of the royal family.
The goal was achieved and war broke out between Merité and Phenixia, while Christianan enquiry made the true responsabilities clear. But, as the fighting continued, the authorities of Merité became suspicious at their own agents reports, and the prooves that came from the Christianan enquiry provoked a severe purge in the special services. Retaking all the powers in his hands, the King of Merité accepted the "peace of the braves" letting Northern Phenixia in Phenixian control, providing that no formal re-annexation was declared.
Intervention en Maldamur (999) : A la suite d'une forte tension à la frontière entre Zion et Olissia, une force multinationale a été chargée de garder la frontière. Phenixia y participa avec une dizaine de régiments.
Défense du Niokolo Koba (1001-1002) : Une nation inconnue mais apparamment belliqueuse se trouve à l'Avant du Niokolo Koba. En liaison avec la CPA et le Thistland qui tentent d'établir le contact avec cette civilisation, Phenixia a placé un peu plus de deux divisions pour aider le Nikolo Koba à se protéger.
"Ensemble contre les Sanguinaires" (1001-1002) : A la suite de divers actes de piraterie des Borgues et de l'envahissement du Darkeh, une force multinationale a été envoyée en Artusinia. A la suite d'une campagne ardue, où les forces Phénixianes ont eu l'honneur d'effectuer la percée décisive sur la capitale Lukut, Borgue et le Darkeh ont été libérés.
Renaissance de Phenixia : L'un des effets collatéraux de la guerre en Artusinia a été la découverte d'un immense archipel inoccuppé qui a été annexé par Phenixia. Devant l'enthousiasme provoqué par la découverte, l'ancien territoire de Phenixia a été vendu à l'Esnet tandis que le Nord-Phenixia devenait le Traumer, sous tutelle Abyssinienne.
