What today is Aurivizh was first inhabited by Geltic groups around 700 BCE. These Geltic groups, today known as the "Aurivizht Proto-Gelts", are responsible for the majority of Aurivizh's Megalithic sites, of which it has many. These Proto-Gelts eventually settled down, and the first farming communities of Aurivizh were created in the area of modern-day Galivizh.
Duchy of Galivizh
The first real state was established in 832 CE when king Tivanou of Aurivizh (born-died), also known as the "Tad ar vro" (Father of the Nation) formed the Duchy of Galivizh near the coast. Galivizh took over multiple bordering communes, extending into an area making up a third of the modern-day borders. Tivanou passed away in 856, and with him, his nation went. Galivizh collapsed into multiple smaller states, of which the largest was the Kingdom of Alivezh. During this time, Christianity was introduced into Aurivizh.
By 1300, the situation in Aurivizh has stabilised, and a single nation was once more in control over the majority of the land, the Kingdom of Alivezh. Alivezh quickly proved to be the most important city in Aurivizh, as its location near the sea, and fertile land made it perfect for trade between the Aurivizht nation-states. Alivezh, and its monarchy led by King Budac (born-died), had great aspirations for Alivezh, which, for Budac meant the unification of Aurivizh. Budac would not live to see that dream come true, but his successor's successor, King Baglan, made it come true, and in 1494 the Kingdom of Aurivizh-Izel, the first true Aurivizht nation was formed, with Baglan on its throne. In 1502, the largest church in the nation and the most famous Aurivizht building, Kouent a Sant Meriasek, finished its construction period, which had lasted for almost 200 years.
Aurivizh-Izel looked beyond its borders for territory, moving into neighbouring Aurivizht nations which did not give in to his hegemony, and then into completely different nations of Gelts. Airivizh-Izel assimilated most of them in brutal ways, which often included the torching of entire villages. However, after two hundred years of conquering, Aurivizh-Izel reached its peak, and in 1630 the nation was the largest any Aurivizht nation ever was, almost double the size of the modern nation. Yet, the nation could not stay, and after the death of king Baglan III, large sections of the nation which had been conquered from other Gelts revolted, resulting in Aurivizh-Izel collapsing into the centre nation, just slightly smaller than the modern borders.
Kingdom of Aurivizh
Aurivizh-Izel required reforming, which happened. King Saliou (born-died) reformed the kingdom of Aurivizh-Izel into just the kingdom of Aurivizh. He also reconquered the region of Tousaeg in a short war, giving Aurivizh its current borders. From 1744 to 1871 the monarchy reigned supreme. But in 1871, the Council of Advice was established, essentially turning Aurivizh from an absolute into a constitutional monarchy. Aurivizh began its process of industrialisation in 1891, with its first textile company opening in June of that year.
Early twentieth century
Aurivizh has had a turbulent twentieth century. The main two turning points were the 1943 revolution against the monarchy. The monarchy had become unpopular with the majority of the people, and a democratic union took power in the Council of Advice and turned the entire nation into a pure democracy. The second major event was the 1967 "Great" coup, which saw the democratic government, which had become weak due to factional infighting, being replaced by the Authoritarian government of Turien Rouault (born-1991). Rouault shaped Aurivizh into his vision, a strong, authoritarian state with a strong economy. This came at the expense of civil liberties, and the democratic rights which Aurivizh had enjoyed for a mere 20 years. Between 1977 and 1979, a war between Aurivizh and Ebrary was fought.
Late Twentieth century until now
Turien Rouault passed away in 1991 and was succeeded by Madenig Moigne. Moigne himself worked to make Aurivizh a more militarized nation, still continuing the strong government Rouault had imagined, but he passed away before his great military dream for Aurivizh was achieved. Moigne was replaced with Tudig Gwernig, the current leader of Aurivizh. Gwernig is, much like his two predecessors, interested in continuing a strong regime for Aurivizh, and has worked to achieve that. Ever since he took power in 2002, he has instigated plans to modernise his nation's economy, moving away from agriculture and moving into manufacturing and mining. Gwernig has also put reforms into infrastructure, modernising the antiquated railways and refurbishing the roads.

Aurivizh is categorised as an upper-midle income country with a mixed market economy, categorised by heavy government involvement. It's HDI is 0.813, and median income per capita is $14,890 (ȡ60,332). The Nominal GDP of Aurivizh is $206.4 Billion (ȡ836.3 Billion). For the most part, the Aurivizht economy is reliant on its mining and manufacturing sectors. Especially the mountains in the north are rich with Iron, Magnesium, Tungsten and other rare-earth minerals. It is believed Aurivizh has among the highest iron reserves on Eurth. Off-shore Gas platforms are used in the gas fields south of Aurivizh, both for energy prouction and gas retrieval. Furthermore, Aurivizh has a large manufacturing sector, mainly centred on the refining and usage of the minerals mined. Aurivizh is a large producer of Rolling Stock, both for the national and international rail markets, mainly for Argic nations. Forestry is another large sector of Aurivizh's economy, around 40% of Aurivizh's area is forested.
Besides the heavy industry, agriculture makes up a large part of Aurivizh's anual income. Especially in the south there are many agricultural areas, as the soil is more fertile. Wheat, rapeseed, other oil plants, and sugar beet are common in the south, while cereals like oats and barleys are found further in the north. Domesticated livestock mainly consists of cows and poultry. Fishing is also undertaken in the waters south of Aurivizh, especially salmon is fished for. Aurivizht fruit wine is made in the south.
As Aurivizh's internal market was almost completely closed to foreign investments before the Tudig Gwernig government, it has seen notable growth since the further opening and economic reforms of Gwernig, starting from 2009. Aurivizh's Gross Domestic Product, between 2010 and 2019, was one of the fastest growing GDPs of Eurth, growing 2.4% in 2018. Between 2018 and 2021, the GDP still has faced growth, but at a slower rate compared to the years before it.
Following the economic reforms of 2009, Aurivizh has opened up further to international investments. Aurivizh itself had already been investing into eastern Bouenezenn island before the reforms, but after the reforms the investments continued on a larger scale. The Pod, the currency of Aurivizh, is worth around a quarter of the International Currency, with $1 being worth ȡ4.052. The port of Alivezh is the main and largest port of Aurivizh, and one of its trading hubs. Aurivizh does not have reduced tariffs with any nation except for Bouenezenn.
Aurivizh has 6,730 kilometres of railroad track, with more than half of it being dual track routes. Though there are no per-definition High-Speed high speed lines, Aurivizh has one upgraded Higher-speed route, the Galivizh-Alivezh Mainline, where trains are able to reach more than 220 km/h on a route that it 214 kilometres. The rail network is centred around Alivezh, with branches going to other large cities and both the Gotneskan and Ebrarian borders. A bridge connects mainland Aurivizh to the country of Bouenezenn, crossing the strait of Budoc.
The total road network extends more than 350,000 kilometres, but there are only 8,032 kilometres of highways, or Gourhentioù. The highway network is once again centred around Alivezh, but branches further than the rail network. Highways are called H-Roads, and limited access roads are called N-roads. There are orbital higways around many large cities, together with a few highways going international, such as the H-2 connecting onto an Ebrarian highway, the H-8 onto a Gotneskan one and the H-17 crossing the strait of Budoc and connecting onto the H-3 of Bouenezenn. Many rural roads are in disrepair, with the Aurivizht government having pledged to repair them before 2030.
The largest Airport of Aurivizh is Alivezh Roualt International Airport, serving the capital city of Alivezh. Smaller airports include Galivizh International Airport, Kêr a Baglan King Baglan International Airstrip and the Doaned Serioù International Airport.
Aurivizh's largest port is the Port of Alivezh, serving both cargo and passengers.
Most of Aurivizh's energy comes from fossile sources, especially natural gas and coal. There is one nuclear power plant in operation, the Pulezh Nuclear Power Station, and a hydroelectric dam on the river Tathuned.
