HistoryEdit

FoundingEdit

Much of Westarctica's founding is shrouded in mystery, however, it is known that the modern Byrdese are ancestors of those who dedicated their lives in the South Pole to scientific research.

Modern HistoryEdit

Westarctica used to belong to Adelia. About 150 years ago, Adelia's parliamentary democracy fell to an absolute monarchy ruled from a far away island named after a ancient monarch, a probable descendant of this one. The people, too weak to fight back had their just government fall to a ruler of unspeakable power. The ruler after this one was infamous, not for glory, but for evil. He made the people serve him with unspeakable rath. He sparked the everlasting rebellion.

The RebellionEdit

What began as several minor protests turned into an organized rebellion. The absolute monarchy was peaking and was about to fell after 23 years of rebellion. Finally, the Byrdese people managed to break off from Adelia, mainly due to its seperation from the contiguous territories.

Birth of a NationEdit

A war-torn nation arose from this rebellion. A nation that continued to strive for power. 10 years ago, with assistance from a nation called Circenses, the Byrdese people managed to gain power again. Three years ago, they pushed their boundaries further south and North, inhabiting thee unclaimed territories of Antarctica.

TerritoriesEdit

Westarctica is divided into three territories, the Byrd Territory, the territory of New Granada and the Achean Territory.
