|Nation of Lurue|
Before the Nation of Lurue was formed, the land was uninhabitied for the most part except for a few explorers from Aurum and Telmar. In a few small patches, aboriginal people existed but the numbers were not high. The Nation of Lurue was formed after the creation of the Land of Evereska due in part to the Nation of Aurum wanting another strong ally and firm trading partner. The Nation of Aurum was the sole backer for the Nation of Lurue to take shape in wanting another ally in 2nd World and the Luruean officials were very clear they wanted Aurum as an ally and model. To find the location for a capital city, Aurum officials and Luruean officials selected a optimal spot between the Nation of Telmar and the Land of Evereska. Skyholm was formed as a capitol city and roads quickly extended outward to a port connecting to the Nation of Aurum. Crews from the Nation of Aurum built the first major freeway in Lurue in hopes for quick trade and fast development, and the hope worked out as Skyholm grew.
The Nation of Aurum made it clear it would continue to help build infrastructure as long as towns and cities grew in the nation. Cities and towns have been completely developed within the nations walls by their own citizens.
Geography & ClimateEdit
The nation is led by an elected Senate. There are two forms of government. The Senate makes laws for everyday life and is in control of declaring or not declaring war. During peaceful times, the Senate has majority power. The Senate is also in control of dealing with most international relations.
The Council is made up of leaders from the magic guilds throughout the nation, and method of electing guild leaders vary from guild to guild. These methods range from democratic vote to birthright to duels for leadership. Guilds are roughly broken up by settlement, though some guilds have subdivisions in towns and cities other than their main guild hall. The Council has majority power during war time and controls military movements.
While technically separate from the Lurue government, the guilds of Lurue act quite closely with it due to the status of The Council. Each guild provides services to the public and government alike. Some guilds have specialties such as enchantments, potion-making, or combat. While others are more generalized.
National AnthemEditThe national anthem of Lurue is called, "Life."
The Nation of Aurum
The Nation of Lurue views the Nation of Aurum as a solid ally because of investments, advice, development progress, economic, and military might from Aurum. The nations share a close economic bond and have agreed on most all subjects. Militarily, Lurue originally signed a treaty with Aurum for military services, but has since revised the treaty. Both nations have agreed mutually to send aid and troops if needed during rough times. Lurue owes much of it's economy and nationhood development to Aurum.
The Nation of Lurue takes a friendly stance with the Nation of Telmar. Knowing Telmar is an ally with Aurum, Lurue has found it best to also be friendly to the nation for economic benefit and regional stability. There has been no quarrels over land border with Telmar and international trade has been a good boon for Lurue.
The Nation of Lurue takes a passive stance to it's eastern neighbors, the Land of Evereska. They orginally viewed the development of Evereska as an unstable nation with many possible risks as the nation toyed with various government types. Lurue also agreed with Aurum and Telmar officials in a document that it was justified if the Aurum Military moved into Evereska if the Evereskan government collapsed. As well an early border boundary dispute remains unresolved with Evereska. Lurue made it clear of their stance on the government situation in Evereska and said they needed a strong leader. They supported the removal of extremist leaders in Evereska and the removal of their dual leadership control position. Lurue agreed with Aurum and Telmar on who would be the best fit and strongest leader for Evereska and helped situate that leader into position. While cautious, Lurue is willing to solve the several disputes with Evereska and hopes it's eastern neighbor can advance smartly and have a stable government.
The Nation of Lurue takes a cautious stance with the Kingdom of Miroin. It views the leader as being possibly unfit for their position and is concerned they can be a driving force to cause unrest in Evereska.
