Ancient Civilization (Pre-Empire to Early Empire)
The ancient states of Ofan stað, Selvagr, Skevio, and Hestr made up the early lands of what would become Xara or the Empire of Stríð. During the last remaining years of the three remaining City States were dominating by three powerful houses that paid tribute to the King of Stríð. The House of Olaf, House of Eskildsen, and the House of Sigmond made up the three ruling houses of the city states. The Royal House of Dahl ruled the entire land of Stríð which is also known as Xara. During the rule of Erik of the House of Dahl, the House of Olaf was elevated from Earl status to the status of a Duke therefore elevating the lands of the House of Olaf to the second highest rank of all the lands under the Royal House. Under the first Duke of the House of Olaf, Duke Olaf the Inconceivable, the lands of Selvagr would grow which would be enough to even rival the Royal House lands.
The House of Dahl would end with abrupt end in the Royal Bloodline with the rule of Borje the Weak. Due to several marriages during the mid-City States Era the House of Olaf was the closest by male birth to inherent the Royal Throne of Stríð. Thus, during the lifetime of Olaf the Inconceivable in 566 BCE the throne became intertwined with the House of Olaf and its descendants.
During the remaining rule of Olaf the Inconceivable as both Duke and King, the centralization of power under the new ruling house would start to come into effect. At the beginning of the integration of Royal Power into the Ducal Power of the House of Olaf was resisted by the other two remaining City States of Stríð, however as time progressed under two other successors to Olaf the Inconceivable the centralization of power was achieved.
When Olaf the Wise came to power in 550 BCE through succession to his father to the Throne to both the Ducal lands and Royal Lands, he decided to continue the centralization process by forcing the rest of the nobles to submit to the Royal Hand of the House of Olaf as the ultimate ruler of all Stríð. Through many bloody battles and a period of war for two years across the known lands, an early peace was achieved that would remain for at least twenty (20) years before the next set of wars broke out.
During the two years known as the era of Blóðstríð or the Wars of Blood, was some of the early empires bloodiest battles known at the time. During these two years the House of Eskildsen, and the House of Sigmond joined forces together to try and defeat the House of Olaf for the title of Kingship of all Stríð. We know that this war did not go to plan as the House of Olaf still came out on top of both houses. It was during this Era of Warfare that the end of the City States would come forth and the Houses of Eskildsen and Sigmond would come to a quick end. Olaf the Wise would wipe out all bloodlines to these two houses to avoid any more wars over the Royal Throne and City State Status.
After the twenty years of relative peace between all peoples of the early Empire of Stríð, the period of peace would come to an end when a lesser noble house dared to challenge the House of Olaf for the throne. The House of Hansen, who controlled the former lands of the House of Sigmond, would raise an army to march on Vulga Supra and attempt to sack the city and kill all Royal Members of the House of Olaf. This attempt on the capital was thwarted but in response the rest of the nobility started to chose sides and start the era known as Tímabil átta styrjalda or the Era of eight wars. During this period eight brutal wars would start during this twenty-eight (28) year period, which lasted the rest of the reign of Olaf the Wise who never saw peace again.
During the reign of Stefan the Strongwilled, which was between 500 BCE to 480 BCE, the era of the eight wars came to an end with a marriage between the House of Hansen and the Royal House. Stefan would allow his younger sister to marry the Earl of the lands of Hansen. Stefan would be the king that would seek to establish the foundation for a strong empire to exist. During his reign taxes were created and collected in a manner never done before, soldiers ensured peace in troubled lands.
The ensuing years after the long era of wars, the reign of Stefan would be marked by the consolidation of the Royal Authority with the creation of an Imperial Seal which would be the leading factor to create the Empire. The last remaining years of the reign of Stefan he worked on allowing his brother to have more authority in the Royal Government. Upon his death Olaf was made his successor and declared Emperor of the Empire.
Empire of Stríð/Xara (before renaming)
During the reign of Olaf the Great, 480 BCE – 455 BCE, the territory of the empire would be doubled by the end of his reign. Olaf the Great is known as a warrior king and one that brought glory to the people of the Empire.
The wars fought during this era are called the Expansion Wars which were fought in the North, South, and West of the territory of Stríð. It is also during this period that the name of the Empire would be known by two names, the Empire of Xara, and the Empire of Stríð. The lands of Hendi and Árásarmenn were the two Kingdoms to be subjected to the Imperial Rule of Xara. It was during these two invasions that the Imperial Army was known as a group of blood thirsty war mongers.
The Wars would continue in Hendi and Árásarmenn for a total of five (5) years before total subjugation of these peoples took place. Once these two kingdoms fell to Imperial Rule Olaf would look to Eastern Lands of Árásarmenn called Austrænir Árásarmenn. It was known as the land of the Eastern Aggressors. These lands would quickly fall thanks to a plague that was sweeping through that kingdom. Olaf handled that plague by simply wiping out anyone who was ill with the plague and including his own men. The land to the north now known as Thralhaven, Tatani, Tata, and parts of Lockiee were sieged upon by Olaf. These wars would last till one year before his reign would end with his death.
The first years of the newly created Empire of Xara were marred by wars upon wars which led to the rapid growth of the Empire and its territory and wealth. During the last years of Olaf the Greats reign Peace was established at a great cost, one that would soon come back to the soldiers in the latter years.
Gustov the Small would succeed Olaf the Great as Emperor, reigning from 455 BCE – 440 BCE, and legal successor to all Noble titles of the House of Olaf. At this time the emperors were titled as; “Emperor of Stríð, Emperor of Xara, Grand Duke of Selvagr, Subjugator of the Eastern Lands, Victor of the Northern Wars, Grand Master of the Warrior Order, and the King of all.” Gustov the Small would have a few wars during his reign but was a weak and sickly person throughout most of his life which continued during his reign. In 440 BCE Gustov the Small was succeeded by Gustov Randvisson the Young as Emperor of Ahrana and would reign from 440 BCE – 435 BCE. During his reign the Empire would be at relative peace and no wars would be started by or with the Empire. The Reign of Gustov the Younger would be short just shy of five years. It is believed that the oldest son of Gustov the Younger killed his father to gain the throne.
Sverre Gustovsson the Dim succeeded his father as Emperor in 435 BCE. The Regin of Sverre the Dim would be from 435 BCE – 430 BCE, Sverre would be murdered by an unknown murder while he slept in which his younger brother would succeed him as emperor.
Gustov Gustovsson the Tramp, 430 BCE – 428 BC, would succeed his brother as Emperor but much like his predecessor he was killed in his sleep only reigning for two years total. He was succeeded by Asger the Bloody as Emperor.
Asger the Bloody, 428 BCE – 402 BCE, would reign as Emperor for twenty-eight years and would earn the epithet of “The Bloody” as it was found out that Asger was found to the be the reason why the two former Emperors were killed. Ironically his reign came to an end by the sister house of the Imperial House of Olaf, House Asmund, that sought vengeance for the killing of the two previous Emperors.
The Last three Emperors of the House of Olaf have little left to tell about them besides folk tales which have been deemed as unreliable.
First Imperial Kingdom
The Imperial Kingdom of Ahrana succeeded the Empire in governing what lands were left after the collapse of the Empires borders. The lands of proper Ahrana, Dniester to the West, Hveradalur, Stemas, Uppsund, Elde, and parts of the Balt Stepp were still under the control of the Absolute Monarchy of Ahrana. The Imperial Kingdom was ruled by the House of Mishia, which was the first non-scandi Royal House or Bloodline to rule Ahranaian Lands, with an iron fist. The former houses that ruled the Empire showed this House how to rule the lands of Ahrana which demanded at times bloodshed.
The House of Mishia would rule the Ahranaian Lands with iron fists till Queen Anne Mishia introduced the first form of reforms that would come the Ahranaian People, she introduced the notion of Constitutional Monarchy. When this new form of government was introduced to the people, everything was skeptical as this is the first time any form of change like this had ever happened. With this new government came a new era, the monarchy no longer claimed to be imperial by succession of the Throne of the Ahranaian Empire but was claiming to be a Monarchy of the People.
Kingdom of Ahrana
With the introduction of the new law of Queen Anne in 1703
United Kingdom of Ahrana
Rise of the Nationalists
In 19110 the Republicans or Nationalists would come to power in Parliament with only having gained twelve Seats on the House of State (the Lower House). It wouldn't be till 1912 when they gain a majority of the seats needed to form a Government in the name of the King. During the campaign of 1912 the Nationalists vowed to make the Tatani pay for their crimes they had committed for many years, they were going to start the process of Ahranaization and meant to make everything Ahranaian not multi-cultured like it had been for decades.
Republic of Ahrana
In 1912 the Republic of Ahrana was declared and the Monarchy abolished by the Nationalist in what is called the Illegal Constitutional Amendment and Coup. The Republic would have only a era of War among all its tenure. The Republic would lead by the Dictator Gustov Thor Richardson that would commit many atrocities and would in the long run die by Gun shot by his own men. The Republic never had a Legislature instead it was led by a Council of Executives loyal to the Nationalist Cause, they imposed many Anti-Sematic Laws that would have many people killed if they broke them.
The Republic would be abolished by the Council of Executives that were Loyal to the Dictator, not many People know why what was done was done but most people do not dare ask as this was a period of dark times to the People of Ahrana. The Republican Executives would Declare the Constitutional Amendment Void and Illegal as they had no right to abolish the Monarchy without a Parliamentary Vote.
Second United Kingdom of Ahrana
In 2006 hallway through the Year the Tatani Nationalist Party issued a No Confidence Vote for the Governing Party and Government which was backed by many other Parties. The Vote is was begun the fall of the Kingdom with this vote it saw the Social Democrat Party fall out of power and the rise of a Coalition of Nationalist Parties to form the Socialist Democratic Coalition. The SDP would lead the Country till 2018 when the Revolution would happen.
The Polices the SDC implemented undid all of the work the Social Democrats worked to get the Country to, the Dukedom of Tatani fell into Civil War with the Imperial Government and the Coalition was met with heavy resentment from the Monarch for allowing turmoil to tale over the Kingdom.
The Monarch secretly backed the Social Democrats and the Socialist Parties as he was a stanch Socialist which before taking the Imperial Throne the then King, Gustov XVII, was part of the Political Party as there were no laws forbidding the Heir to the Throne from being part of the Political World such as Legislative Politics. The SDC would find this out and would plot to overthrow the Kingdom, however the Monarchy and the Socialist Supporters would find this out and would quickly end their reign of power in a Vote of No Confidence which would favor the Socialists and Social Democrats. it would however not be enough to save the Monarchy from the plot, knowingly the Pilot that was flying the Kings Airplane flew over the restricted Airspace in Tatani and would be shot down in the War Zone. The SDC would get their wish in seeing the meddling King out of the way, however this would enrage the Socialist Supporters and Citizens and would backfire in the faces of the SDC. Lead by then General Ivanoff, the Socialists Forces would march into Tatani and sack the Stronghold of the Nationalists of the SDC and would end the Tatani Conflict that ended up being started by the SDC.
For decades the left had governed ahrana under the Second United Kingdom of Ahrana, though these leftist governments were moderates compared to the socialists that would come to govern the country. Since 1996, the Royal Government was under the political authority of the Social Democrats, Social Liberal Party, and the Labour Party of Ahrana. These leftist governments created the early model for the current Ahranaian Government in the aspects of Education, Healthcare, and the Economy.
In Early 2001, in the Dukedom of Tatani, an Insurgency of Nationalists cause a more left centered group to come to power in Ahrana. The Socialists for Peace, would be led by Greggor Ivanoff till the Socialists took power when the party was reformed. Ivanoff never took the position of Prime Minister due to wanting to work in the background of the Party and movement. What is now known to historians is that Ivanoff preferred this in order to ensure the Nationalists in Tatani continued to create issues for the government.
In early 2017 the Socialists reorganized into the Communist Party of Ahrana and the Socialist Revolutionary Party of Ahrana. These two parties were the same in essence except writing in order to allow the facade that the Socialists allowed other Parties to participate in the government. Under the Transitional Socialist Government, headed by Ivanoff, the structure of what would become the Ahranaian Socialist Federation started to take footing.
When the Transitional Government was changed to the Socialist Federation of Ahrana, Greggor Ivanoff ensured his grip on power was not loosened but instead tightened. Ivanoff became the sole leader of the nation until he was forced to resign by the Party. During the Ivanoff Era, many arrests by the Police Directorate and the Council for Security which also resulted in many deaths of people who found themselves on the wrong end of Ivanoff's breathe.
It is estimated that around 100,000 People were arrested, imprisoned, worked to death, or just shot in the back of the head because Ivanoff felt that a group of people needed to die. There was no method to Ivanoff's ideas, at this point in time he wanted to ensure fear ruled the country and that no one would dare resist his government and himself in junction to that. However, in early 2018 under pressure Ivanoff allowed any all-political parties to partake in the upcoming Peoples' Congressional Elections which in return would confirm on him another year of power. This ended up backfiring on Ivanoff. In February that year, for the first time since the inception of the Socialist Government a non-communist was elected to the President of the Peoples' Congress, Sigrid A.A.V. Florence-Goring, who opened an Investigation into the President of the Socialist Federation.
The Investigation found that beyond the already known information such as false arrests and the murders, that Ivanoff was the sole person responsable for the death of the late King of the last Royal Government, Gustov XVII. With Congressional President Sigrid Florence-Goring being a descendent of the Imperial Blood, which was kept from the public, the decision to arrest and trial Ivanoff for all crimes was made. In the end, Ivanoff was extradited to Variota to face trial for crimes against that nation. When in custody there Ivanoff was unexpected killed, which has not been claimed by any group or nation still.
After Ivanoff's death Sigrid was then instaled as President. Through many reforms made she was the last President of the Socialist Federation and the first president of the Federation of Ahrana. The Socialist Government was not able to sustain after the death of Ivanoff due to the way he ruled.
The Geography of Ahrana varies across the nation from mountains in the West and Southeast to lakes and plains in the North and South of the country. Though the climate of Ahrana is very harsh during the winters, the springs and summers then to be warm and moderate with barely and temperatures around freezing. While the water in the country may be cold year round

The Faiths in the Kingdom of Ahrana will not seek to deploy Proselytism as a tactic to use to increase the faithful numbers of one faith. If it be the will of the person to change faith then it must be their decision unwavered by religious influence. -Article IX, Section 5, Constitution of the Kingdom of Ahrana
In Ahrana there are five Officially Recognized Languages which are also stated in the Constitution of Ahrana.

The other recognized languages are Sørskandinavien, Østskandinavien, and Vestslavisk. In older times there were two other forms of Vestslavisk that were common in Ahrana named Østslavisk and Sentralslavisk with both languages going extinct in the medieval times due to the Ethnic Programs the Scandi Ahranaians started pushing in the later years of the Ahranaian Empire. Sydslavisk is a minor recognized language in Ahrana due to the small amount of people who actually speak it. This language is mostly spoken in Volhynia which is to the Southeast of Ahrana.
