Kapuku (Kapukan: ㅋㅏㅍㅜㅋㅜ), officially the Kingdom of Kapuku (Kapukan: ㅏㅜㅍㅜㄴㅣ ㅋㅏㅍㅜㅋㅜ), is a kingdom situated in the Kapukan Archipelago. Located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, the nation has no land borders with any other nation and comprises of four major islands - Ulukau, Limoni, Hulawa, and Haumea - alongside smaller islands that together form the archipelago. With the nation itself being home to around 7 million residents, its capital and largest city is Lono.

Archaeological evidence show that the Kapukan Archipelago was first settled in the 300s AC by South Sea Islanders. The early Kingdom of Limoni united the archipelago for over a century until the death of king Kei Kealoha and the division of the islands into four separate kingdoms. These four kingdoms went on to fight for centuries in what is known as the Warring Period, an era that also saw great cultural and military progress in the archipelago. In 1057 AC, Meakhani united the islands but they soon were ravaged due to disease brought from Zhenian traders. The islands soon collapsed and became a tributary of the Shindan dynasty and later a crown dependency of the Empire of Zhenia. While the islands were annexed into the Greater Eastern Union shortly before the Second Great War, a rebellion that initiated in 1533 AC ultimately resulted in Kapukan independence three years later. An absolute monarchy ruled the nation after its independence until 1534 AC, when a coup d'etat overthrew the government and created a constitutional monarchy that lasts to this day.

Today, Kapuku is a small developed nation and home to one of the largest economies in the mid-Pacific region. It is also known for its highly-developed technology sector, which makes up about 30% of the economy, as well as its rich and unique culture, which makes it a popular tourist destination with stunning landscape that has received high media coverage in recent years.

Etymology

The name "Kapuku" is derived from two words, "Kapu" and "Kū". Kapu is an ancient set of traditions and guidelines used by the people of Kapuku for hundreds of years. "Kū" means war, giving a name that means something similair to "War with rules" which gives insight into the foundation and culture of Kapuku.

History

First Settlement

The first settlers of Kapuku came from the continent of Tarsis in the modern day nation of Zhenia. These settlers (Known as the Kapukans) Went on to settle vast amounts of islands and lands in and around Tarsis. The people group traveled the oceans in canoes, using only the stars and currents as guides to where they were going. This form of travel is known as Kumu and is an oral tradition that only Kupukans possess. One of their most important settlements was the Kapukan Archipelego. The first kingdom in what is today Kapuku was the great Kingdom of Limoni The Kingdom of Limoni was founded in 392 AC. Being the only inhabited island in Kapuku thus far, they continued to settle further into the islands of Ulukau, Hulawa, and Haumea. The Kingdom of Limoni also founded the great city of Lono which became a center for knowledge and culture. Instability came the death of Kei Kealoha as his four sons fought over control over the islands. The fight continued for 2 years until the four sons came to an agreement in 508 AC, each one of them would have control over one island, creating a total of four kingdoms.

The Four Kingdoms

From 506 AC to 1057 AC, the kingdoms of Kapuku were constantly at war. While many people were killed from this period, it also brought advancements in technology such as. larger boats and armor. Without this period, unification would have never been possible for Kapuku. This time period also brought early philosophy and military tactics to Kapuku. Religion and culture advanced greatly during this time period making some give it the nickname of "ㅋㅔ ㅋㅏㅜㅏ" or "The Advancement". In 916, there were four kingdoms, Ulukau, Limoni, Hulawa, and Huamea. All of the kingdoms fought and no real advancements were made until the year 731 AC. In this year, Queen Lilioukeana of Hulawa sent her army to the island of Second Kingdom of Limoni. After learning from past mistakes, the Kingdom of Ulukau built larger canoes to hold more soldiers. They also introduced the first pieces of Kapukan armor which were helmets made from the bones of animals and in some cases, even humans. The soldiers were able to capture Lono city and burned most of it. This war was the first to see any modern technology used in Kapuku.
