Canton River Delta, officially called The United Prefectures of Canton River Delta, is a medium-to-large-sized country located on both the Thuadia and Thrismari continent. Bordering Great Golden Raj, Prei Meas, Qui Latine, Shimerland and Azureden. It consists of 54 unique prefectures, not including the autonomous regions of Kanar and Tôh Việt. Currently the Cantonese population embodies approximately 867 million citizens, and the nation has about 1.317.248km2 of territory, making Canton one of the closest populated region in Anteria. The country was formed in 1621, after centuries of continuous warfare between independent kingdoms. As a result of this tumultuous past Canton is up to date a severe pacifist country, vowing to only take on arms again when absolutely necessary. Canton is a significant member of the Sekidean Union's inner circle.

The history of Canton River Delta cannot be told all at once because of the many countries and cultures that were or are located within the borders of CRD.

List of wars involving Canton River Delta

History of Teiyama

Ancient history

Saisho no toshi

De geschiedenis in het gebied van de Teiyama begint met de eerste dorpen en steden, de Saisho no toshi. De belangrijkste steden in deze periode waren: Edo, Kibe, Fushan, Okiana, Shidō, Matsuyama, Kita, Toyishi, Takana and Ita. De steden hiervoor genoemt waren een bolwerk van de Teiyamanse cultuur. Deze periode kende vele oorlogen omdat er geen centrale staat was daarom waren alle steden aparte landen met aparte regeringen. uit deze periode komt ook de legende van de eerste Keizer: Ten'no Yi. De Saisho no toshi duurde van 950 BC tot 400 BC.

Totashi

Het opvolgende tijdperk kende integendeel tot de Totashi grotere staten die meerdere steden in hun bezit hadden. In deze periode kwam ook de omschakeling van brons naar ijzer, dit zorgde voor een verhoging in productiviteit van gereedschap en wapens. Dit zorgde er weer voor een verhoging in populatie in de steden waardoor men zich meer kon gaan specialiseren. De belangrijkste staten uit deze tijd waren: Kingdom of Edo, Kingdom of Sha, Kingdom of Wu and The Confederation of the Liá States. De staten van de Totashi periode waren machtig maar ook grote rivalen van elkaar die vaak met elkaar oorlog voerden en kleieren staten overnamen of onderdrukte. de grootste oorlog van deze tijd was de the War of ten winters waarin het Kingdom of Edo meerdere keren het Kingdom of Sha probeerde over te nemen en het was zelfs bijna gelijkt. In het negende jaar van de oorlog trok een groot leger van Edo richting de hoofdstad van Sha, de troepen moesten nog langs een vallei en dan waren ze bij de hoofdstad. Toen ze door de vallei heen liepen kwam er een hinderlaag van de Sha troepen. Er werd hevig gevochten maar de Edo troepen stonden geen kans en werden verslagen. Kingdom of Edo Probeerden hierna nog een keer Kingdom of Sha binnen te vallen maar ook die aanval mislukte. De Totashi duurde van 400 BC tot 190 AD

Kawa
Historical flag of Yima

De Kawa was verschillend van de andere periodes vanwege een simpel feit, toen was het Teiyama gebied onder een regering bestuurd voor de eerste keer. De Empire of Yima was de eerste staat die alle gebieden in handen had en daarmee de eerste regionale regering. De leiders van Empire of Yima beweerde dat zei afstammelingen waren van de mythische keizer Ten'no Yi en daarmee de wil van de goden achter hun hadden. Vele geloofde did verhaal en de afstammelingen van de leiders van Yima zitten nu nog steeds op de troon van Canton River Delta.

De Empire of Yima heeft vele goede dingen gedaan en vele dingen die moeilijk zijn te verklaren zoals het tempel complex van Tikawa. Dit complex is reusachtig en heeft bouwtechnieken in zich waarvan lang gedacht werd dat die veel later pas zijn bedacht. Een ander ding dat Yima heeft gedaan was de bouw van wegen door hun hele rijk en een centrale munt, dit zorgde voor een vergroting van handel in en uit het rijk.

History of Kanar

Ashar Kingdom

The Ashar Kingdom was one of the first kingdoms in the south. It was also the first nation to adopt Islam as their national faith, though it wasn't Sunni or Shia Islam. It was a new kind of Islam that formed in the kingdom, Bujir Islam.

Gugun Empire

Flag of the Gugun Empire

The Gugun Empire also known as the Gugun Khanate was the biggest nation (outside the united CRD) in the history of Canton River Delta. The empire stretched from the southern border with modern day Shimerland all the way to the present day city of Canton. The capital of the empire was Khoëmbali, the city is in the present the capital of the Kanar Autonomy. The empire started under Khan Khasar Sünsudyn, he expanded the small Gugun tribe into a medium size Khanate. His son, Daritai Sünsudyn expanded his fathers Khanate into a great empire. When he died the empire was at its largest expanse.

The empire slowly fell into disrepair under Khan Ozbeg Sünsudyn, the son of Daritai Sünsudyn. The most northern part of the empire declared independence as the united cities of Canton. With his dead the empire was split into 5 parts with all becoming separate khanates. In the northern part the Chao Khanate was formed that was more Huáng in culture then Kanar. In the middle the Khaidu Khanate was formed that shorty fell to their much stronger neigbours. In the south around Khoëmbali the Kanar Khanate was formed. And to the north and south of the Kanar Khanate the Bayar Khanate and Usun Khanate were formed.

Though the empire didn't last very long, it's legacy is still present to the modern times. The religion it brought with it to the north cause a schism in Dōuism that formed the northern and southern parts.

The Gunpowder empire

The Gunpowder empire better known as the Kanar Khanate was the greatest threat to Cantonese peace and safety between 1700-1800. It was a great nation with a strong military, though their economy wasn't that fair. The country was rapidly industrializing but to fuel their new industry they needed lots of natural resources like coal. This drove the country to conquer more territory. It also was the reason for the preservation of serfdom in Kanar.

Intergration into CRD

In 12 December 1967 the Kanar Khanate was incorporated into Canton River Delta under their own free will. The Khanate was no longer the great nation it was 100 years ago and it was slowly falling into disrepair. To stop this and give the nation a revival the only option was joining the far richer and better developed CRD.

History of United Canton River Delta

Historical Periods of United CRD

The history of United Canton River Delta can be seperated into 5 peridos, Sengoku Jidai, Age of uniting, Marian Age, Pacifist Age and Modern Age.

Sengoku Jidai

War of the two dragons
Painting of the battle of Hian tó

The war of the two dragons is known as the biggest single war in Cantonese history. In the war the two major powers of the Sengoku era fought each other to decide who would become the single greatest power in Canton River Delta. In the north laid the Edo States, they were a loosely confederation of states who held an allegiance to the Kōgō / Ten'nō. They were the power of the north and one of two great dragons. In the south laid the Cxia Republic, they were a unitary republic who rose when the last Tiang dynasty fell. They were the power of the south and the other great dragon. The war ended with the two sides uniting and forming Canton River Delta. The war lasted from 1605 to 1621.

The war started when information was brought up about a small border conflict in the Canton isthmus. There troops of the Imperial Edo army and Cxian army clashed and some casualties were the result of it. The Cxia Republic used this as an explanation to invade the Edo States. A force of 220,000 troops crossed the Canton isthmus into the province of Tsunomi. The Tsunomi army couldn't hold off the entire Cxian forces so they called upon the Ten'nō to call up all the other forces from all the states to help them fight the Cxia. The Ten'nō accepted his request and called upon all the forces. On the 15th of September 1607 the two armies faced off in the province of Tsunomi. This was the battle of Hian tó and was the first major battle of the war. It ended with a small Edo victory and the Cxia forces had to withdraw. Even so, a majority of the Cxian forces survived the battle and they would come back next year to fight again.

Painting of the battle of Liang

While the battle of Hian tó was happing on land a simmilar battle was happing on the seas. This battle was the battle of Liang. In this the two navies of Edo and Cxia fought eachother near the city of Huo Cheng.

Age of uniting

Marian age

The Marian age was one that gave a sea change to almost every field of Canton River Delta, from fashion to technology. This was all done during the reign of Kōgō Maria. The age started in 1741 and ended in 1832, the age lasted 91 years and only ended by the tragic dead of the beloved Kōgō Maria.

Painting of Maria and Catharina
Maria Sakuri

The age started when Maria Sakuri was crowned in 1741 at age 18 in the Temple of the Dragon. Even though she was crowned in a Dōuist temple, she herself wasn't a Dōuist. She was a Catholic, she herself was the first Catholic monarch who reigned over Canton River Delta. Before she was crowned her mother was the regent for her because she was too young to become Kōgō. The monarch before her was Ten'nō Niko. When her father died, Ten'nō Niko, Maria was only 12 years old so her mother took on the reins as regent. She and her mother had a good connection and it was her mother who wanted her to be baptized as she herself was also Catholic.

Maria being a Catholic didn't stop her from being who she was. She was (as how we in the modern times call it) bisexual and was married to a woman, Catharina van Hogerberg. Because of this the catholic religion in CRD split from the main one in the rest in Anteria and formed its own separate branch where being gay, lesbian or whatever wasn't a problem.

Because she didn't have any children of her own the crown went to her nephew,Ten'nō Richard/Riku. He was the second and only other Catholic monarch of Canton River Delta. He tried to step into the footsteps of his aunt and did a great job of expanding the dream of Maria of making CRD a truly modern western country.

Painting of the funeral procession of Maria

As stated before the age ended with the dead of Maria. It is a truly tragic story of how she met her end. She and Catharina were on a little vacation in the city of Kibe to get away from the busy court in Edo. On 17 may 1832 the two wanted to go visited the island of Tokana Isumi and enjoy the nature but just before they got on the ferry a man named Yano Hakuseki apperard from the docks. Yano Hakuseki was a staunch traditionalist and was very opposed to the new way of life that Maria introduced. So on that dock he puled out a revolver and shot her. The bullet hit her in the stomach and blood dripped out of the wound. In her last moments her beloved Catharina hold her in her arms and told her she was going to make it but she replied and said with little strength she had: My dearest, don't cry. This isn't the end for us, it's only the beginning. I will see you again on the other side where we will spend eternity together. And with that, she closed her eyes and passed away. The dead of Maria was a shock to the whole nation. Almost everyone loved Maria and never though that she would meet her end in such a horrible way. Yano Hakuseki was later that very same day caught by the Kibe police. He was declared guilty of murder, treason and Regicide. For this he was sentenced to the death penalty, the only death penalty given in Canton River Delta. He was killed by a firing squad.

The Marian age changed the nation and even though there was an opposition to it, like Yano Hakuseki, the changes that were made couldn't be undone and Maria shall forever be known as a smart, kindhearted and brave woman who lead the nation to greatness and was loved by the people.

Marian Fashion
Painting of Traditional and Marian fashion

Marian fashion is known for being more western. The style has it origin in Gadorien, Krenya and Gueldere. The style first came to Canton River Delta trough traders and merchants in the ports cities. They wore the clothes and made the people of CRD a little interest in them.

Later in 1741 when Kōgō Maria Sakuri was crowned, became the fashion style really popular. It all began with the coronation dress of the Kōgō, it was a giant Guelderse inspired dress. This dress style was later adopted by the rest of her imperial court and slowly but surely made it's way all across the country. The style inspired the creating of the idea of Shu Fuku no sutairu (Two clothing styles), where people had/have two different kinds of wardrobes, Marian and traditional.

Marian Technology
Painting of the first train in CRD

In the Marian Age technology made a great leap and Canton River Delta became a modern and industrial nation on parr with the western nations of Gadorien, Krenya and Gueldere. At first western technology was gained via small time trade between the nations and merchants but when Maria Sakuri ascended the throne, the exchanged became greater than ever before.

Maria Sakuri invited inventors and professors from the western countries to come to CRD and bring their idea's and inventions with them. She also set up new universities to teach western studies, Rishoni ("Western learning"). The most famous Marian university is the Ushomi University which was founded in 1782.

Marian Love and Marriage

In the Marian Age, love and marriage changed and drifted away from the older Dōuist traditions and became a blend of new Dōuist traditions and western traditions.

In the new style of love, courtship and marriage the principal of Shogani was still used. When one in Canton River Delta came to the age of 18 in the Teiyama culture, they would go on the marriage market and be official open to be asked their and in marriage. Though, the marriage market was only done in the Kanryō (Bureaucratic) pillar of Teiyama society. The Budō (Martial) pillar of Teiyama society didn't participate in the marriage market.

It was common for someone in the Budō pillar to ask the hand of someone of the Kanryō pillar but this wasn't a rule. If they pleased, people could marry someone from their own pillar. If someone would want to marry other they would first ask their father / the oldest brother their child's hand in marriage. If they said yes then the Suitor would go on to ask the one they would want to marry their hand in marriage. But through all of this, the mother as a veto on the marriage and can stop it if she pleased. The grandmother has again a veto, her veto can out veto the mothers veto. This is because of the matrilineal society that is the Teiyama culture.

It was tradition on the first day of the marriage season that all the new debutantes would present themselves before the Kōgō or Ōsho (wife of the monarch) and with both where male then the Ōshi (husband of the monarch). They would then be judged by one of those 3 so all may know who has the favour of the imperial court. This could greatly help a young debutante in her quest to find a good partner.

The marriage season was full of balls and galas so that the debutantes and Suitors could mix and talk to each other. This was talking was of course all done in public because it wasn't allowed for the two to meet in private for the change that a scandal could come out of it that could ruin the whole family. When a scandal would happen, the only way to solve it was to have the favour of someone higher up. The best was to have the favour of the monarch on your side.

The Heiwa Vote
Painting of the Heiwa vote

The Heiwa vote is one of the most important voting ever done by the Cantonese Parliament. The vote was held to decide if Canton River Delta should go into wars in the further of to become a pacifistic nation and devoid wars.

The vote was held in 1822. It was held the next year after the end of the Spice war. When the war was over it all lead to an argument about wars and how to deal with them. The Spice war wasn't good for business and the economy so most of the Parliament members wanted to bring Canton River Delta into an age of Eternal peace. Though to this there was an opposition, they were the Fú xi group. Their party was mostly popular in the southern regions of Tiang. They didn't want the Eternal peace, this was because they saw the further of the nation of conquering the neighboring countries and bringing them in CRD.

The official debate began on the first of March 1822. The leader of the Coalition for the Eternal peace was Miss Seta Hazuki. She lead the voice of her group and debated against Mr Zhen Ru, he was the leader of the opposition for the Eternal peace. The debate lasted for 3 weeks and the debates became fierce. When Mr Zhen Ru finished his speech Miss Seta Hazuki broke her chair in pure frustration.

On the 22nd of March the vote was held on if the Eternal peace should be implemented or should be skipped. It was close with 602 of the 1050 voting yes. In the end Miss Seta Hazuki won thus and the Eternal peace was implemented.

Colonial Age

The history of Canton River Delta has known the concept of colonies and colonial empires. Namely, the colonies of Gadorien in western CRD and the colonies of Gueldere in the south-west. The colonial age isn't an official period in the history of Canton River Delta due to the fact that it crosses multiple periods.

Colonies of Gadorien
Map of the 8 colonies of Gadorien

The nation wasn't fully united yet so the Gadori didn't attacked the CRD government but independent smaller nations.
The colonies of Gadorien were: Victoria, Hirental, Zuckerküste, Tsengkou, Horelmburg, Salzberg, Wilhelmshaven and Perlenküste.

Colonies of Gueldere
Map of the 3 colonies of Gueldere

Gueldere also had colonies in Canton River Delta, but just like Gadorien. It didn't attack the CRD government but independent smaller nations.
The colonies of Gueldere were: Nieuw Zedeland, Johannesland and Dieper Phunjab.

     Nieuw Zedeland

     Johannesland

     Dieper Phunjab

The colonial empire of Gueldere in CRD started by merchants and explorers. They new from trade links that Canton River Delta was known to vast richest and trade routes and the upcoming Guelderese merchants and government wanted to tap into that and take it from themselves. So they sent out expeditions to explore and conquer land for the nation and enrich the homeland. This started when they landed on the shore of the royal federation of Phunjab. The explorers saw Phunjab as backwards tribal nation and thought they could conquer them easily and in the beginning this was true. They conquered all the Phunjab coast but the inland was much harder to take.

Spice War
Painting of the Battle of the Cxia coast

(Still a work in progress)

The Spice war was the last war Canton River Delta fought. The Spice war was a war between Gueldere and Canton River Delta. The war started became of the trade deficit Gueldere was running with CRD. To stop this and gain more money they wanted to invade CRD and capture important trade cities. This way Gueldere would reverse the trade deficit and become way richer than before.

Pacifist Age

In the Pacifist Age Canton River Detla didn’t fight any wars and became a true diplomatic, economic and industrial powerhouse.

Ten'nō Richard

Ten'nō Richard was the monarch after Maria and was the second Catholic monarch and the last one. He got to power he was 32, his father who was actually next in line for the throne died when he was 21. Richard is known as the second great monarch who helped to elevate Canton River Delta into the modern age of the industrial revolution.

On 6th of August 1832, the coronation of Richard happened. It was done a while after the dead of his aunt to pay respect to the former monarch.

Painting of Ten'nō Richard and the Great military council

Ten'nō Richard made the Cantonese army and navy from a strong force to a huge treat. He did this because of the wake up call that was the Spice war against Gueldere. His aunt, Maria, already modernized the army but Richard made it a force to be reckoned with. One of the main ways the military was changed was with the Great military council. Their job was with bringing western ideas, tactics and weapons to CRD and incorporated them into the military.

Gatoi Rebels
Painting of the capture of the last Gatoi Rebels

The Gatoi Rebels were against all the new changes that Maria introduced. They wanted that Canton River Delta remained a full on Dōuist traditional nation and expel the westerners they called barbarians. This group was mostly popular in the northern regions of Sarudo and the islands.

The Gatoi succeeded in some of their missions with most famously: assassinating Maria Sakuri. Her dead was a great win for the Gatoi on the short term because their greatest threat was gone. But on the long term wasn't that good. Because of the assassination was the hole Gatoi community declared enemies of the state.

The Gatoi fought some battles in the early years of the pacifist age with the Imperial army and occupied some fortresses and cities but could never hold them for very long. In 1843, 11 years after the assassination on Maria Sakuri, were the last of the Gatoi Rebels captured. The last to be captured were most of the leaders and important members. They hold on for 14 months in a fortress but finally they had to surrender.

Decade of the two emperors
Painting of Ten'nō Richard
Painting of Kudou
Paintings of Ten'nō Richard and Kudou.

In the Decade of the two emperors there was an internal struggle in Canton River Delta. The decade was from 1832 to 1841. It was when a pretender who called himself the real Ten'nō tried to take the throne from Ten'nō Richard/Riku. The pretender was Kudou Sakuri, a cousin of Richard. He was a Dōuist and with that got quit a big following around him of old traditionalists. Richard was just like his aunt a Catholic and was more popular with the new and Marian age people.

The struggle between the two split the people of Sarudo and made them choose between the two. In 1835 Kudou Sakuri proclaimed himself as Ten'nō Kudou. This lead to a fight between the two cousins. It didn't lead out to a full on civil war due to both being pacifist. So the two fought it out first via propaganda and debates. This later led out to the two writing propaganda about each other to make the other look like the villain. In 1841 27 of November, the two met on a hill outside the imperial city of Edo to resolve the question of who was the true Ten'nō by performing a duel. They fought with their traditional swords, the battle lasted for 10 minutes. At the end, Richard won the battle and Kudou committed seppuku.

Building of the Canton canals
Drawing of HIMS Amaki passing the Dongbù haixiá

The Canton canals is one the biggest single infrastructure project ever done by Canton River Delta. The complex exist out of 4 canals connected by 3 lakes. The project took 12 years and coasted about around half a billion Okins in 1830s money. The project was commissioned by the Cantonese National government and was build by the Yellow Dragon construction company. Construction began in 1842 and ended in 1854.

82,000 men and woman build the canals and were paid average wages, though the work was hard. Around 500 of the workers died during the construction and others got sick. The family of those who died got form the government some money to compensate the income they now lost. There were a lot of medical stations all along the construction area to provide medical aid to those who needed it.

The Construction of the canals is one of the best examples of Cantonese power, in 12 years the nation cut though a continent and connected two waters. It was a great achievement for the nation and the canals itself were even for the first years a tourist attraction. People came to see the man made water ways and admire them.

Building of the Kibe tower
Modern picture of the Kibe tower

The Kibe tower is the most well known tower of the pacifist age and the second most well known in the present, only the Canton tower is more famous. The tower was build between 1932 to 1934. When it was build it was the heighest building in all of Canton River Delta.

Modern Age

End of the colonies

With the end of the colonial empires all around the world it was also the end of the Gadori Empire in Canton River Delta. The island and city of Victoria had to be given to CRD in 1996 as was said in a treaty signed by Gadorien.

Gémìng

Gémìng is the culturan revolution in Canton River Delta that happend around the 1980s. The more old ways of dance, clothing, ect had then competition from a new stream of ideas. Some of these ideas are: Drag in Canton River Delta, Vogūkō and Tashibi.

Kōgō Maria Sakuri's coronation gown

Fashion in Canton River Delta is very diverse. This is of course due to the many cultures that reside in CRD, but also due to foreign influences.

This set off a trend in CRD of mixing western and eastern fashion into a new blend.

The Largest fahsion brands in Canton River Delta that are Cantonese are T&M and Vogūkō.

Court fashion

During the reign of Kōgō Maria Sakuri the western style of fashion Flourished, with almost all nobles and people in her court wearing the western style. It became common to have a western gown for a party and an eastern traditional gown for a ceremony. This gave rise to the Shu Fuku no sutairu (Two clothing styles) where thus people have two different kinds of wardrobes. This tradition of 2 different kinds of wardrobes is still common in Canton River Delta. But in the modern day the 2 different wardrobes are modern clothes and tradition clothes.

Military fashion

Even though it is weird to think about it, the military actually has given some influences on Cantonese fashion.

Clash of fashion cultures

In the west, suits were in almost every country known as male garments, but in Canton River Delta the opposite was true. When diplomats or rulers from the west came to CRD to present themselves to the government or imperial court, they were almost always men who were dressed in suits. The Cantonese interpreted that suits where something that the ruling class wore, and because women where the stereotypical rulers the majority of suits were worn by women.
