The Republic of Hytekia or more commonly Hytekia (Hytek: Hitekija; Juznik: Hytia) is a sovereign state in Alemannia with just over 36 million inhabitants. Established after the Hytekojuznik Civil War in 1989, Hytekia was one of Gaia's few remaining communist states, spanning almost a hundred years; upon the Alemannic occupation of 1998 following the Second Grobina Wars the country emerged as a free republic, initially under supervision until 2004, replacing the communist state

History

Prehistory

Archaeological evidence has shown that humans have inhabited Hytekia since around 4000 BC, a trait shared with many of its Alemannic counterparts. Tools such as hammers, knives, ancient instruments and other blunt and sharp force weapons have been excavated throughout the country, most of which in the 1940s and 50s, during the Hytek government's program Atklājiet mūsu mantojumu!, shortened to AMM and translated to "Rediscover our Heritage!" - which encouraged many archaeologists to conduct scientific digs throughout the country to discover more information on the country's earliest inhabitants. Evidence of the first tribes to expand beyond their own people were found near the north-eastern mountains in the country, near the modern-day border with Juznia, who conquered much of the inner mountain valleys somewhere around the 700s and 600s BC, they were nicknamed the Peduatteli, roughly translated to "feet pickaxes", given to them due to their habit of digging using their feet, as opposed to convention tools of the time and their hands.

Early kingdoms

Ragucin Empire

The Ragacīn, often spelt as Ragucin were quick, agile troops who rode into battle on horseback. The head of the horse would contain a large spike often smithed from scrap metals bound to the horse's saddle itself by tough leather. The Ragacīn carried small, thin swords and daggers and their agility was their main weapon and the pride of a Ragacīn frontliner. Ragacīn were often known to stick the decapitated heads of their enemies on their spikes, and the spike of the horse gave them the name of Ragacīn (Hytek: Raga, "horn"; cīn from Hytek cīnītāji, "fighter")

Margraviate of Ezeravira

The Margraviate of Ezeravira was established in 1447, undertaking policies and leadership similar to that of the late !Greek Empire. A largely dormant state, Hajmatland would embark in wars with the nearby Juznik states, in which the famous Hytek Ragacīn troops were used in battle once again. The Margraviate continued to exist until the country entered a personal union with Juznia in 1860 under Margrave Johannes III from the Hytek House of Melderis. The two states were relatively independent of each other under the rule of Johannes III, and acted so in all but name. Under Johannes successor, Johannes IV, however, the two states were brought closer together as rule of the nations was centralised in northern Hytekia and the old city of Krasno was made the capital city of the two kingdoms. Johannes IV officially unified the two states in 1884 as the Kingdom of Hytekojuznia.

Kingdom of Hytekojuznia

During the unified kingdom, Hytekia flourished as Juznik peoples migrated from their home settlements up north towards Krasno and Pekrasta in search of employment in the more-industrialised Hytek part of the kingdom. The city of Krasno experienced massive population increase as the city rapidly expanded across the coast. On the night of the outbreak of the !WW1 in X, the population of Krasno had reached three million people. During the war, Hytekojuznia sided with the x, and participated mainly in the Alemannic Front at the Siege of Anlaufhafen and also sent reserve troops to various other fronts during the war. Hytekojuznia surrendered when Krasno was captured in X, and the losses imposed on the country made the kingdom extremely fragile and unstable. In 1913, a communist uprising successfully overthrew the King of Hytekojuznia and proclaimed the People's State of Hytekojuznia, led absolutely by Hytek communist revolutionary Artjoms Viliks.

People's State of Hytekojuznia

During the four short years he was in power, Viliks imposed stricter regulations on speech and criticism of the government. Employment in secondary-sector jobs such as manufacturing and factory jobs increased rapidly under the reign of Viliks. An avid militarist, Viliks immediately began to employ (often forcefully) Hyteks and Juzniks to construct military equipment for the revival of the Hytekojuznik military. Farmers were most affected by the forceful re-housings and the lack of produce being farmed led to the Krasno Famine of 1916, which is estimated to have killed over 85,000 people. Viliks was ousted by his own party in 1917 and replaced with the more intermediate Roms Tālbergs, who brought Hytekojuznia out of economic decline.

People's Republic and Civil War

The sudden independence caused by the ASU's dissolution in 1981 left the new People's Republic of Hytekojuznia as an extremely divided country, and a power struggle between the Hyteks and Juzniks erupted into the Hytekojuznik Civil War in 1986, in which Juznia, supported by X, declared independence from Hytekia, who was supported by X. Juznia eventually won the war and the Višnevas Accords, which brought about the end of the civil war and ensured Hytek recognation of Juznik independence, was signed in 1989.

The modern, independent Hytekia moved its capital to the more centralised city of Pekrasta in 1990. The country had slow economic growth, and although its economy was increasing, an unemployment rate of around 16% affected the urban areas of the country. The deindustrialisation of Krasno caused many of its old residents to migrate to the new capital. The city of Krasno as well as Pekrasta still contain a sizable Juznik minority, and tensions frequently arise between the two ethnic groups within the cities and relations with Juznia itself are sometimes hostile, with Hytekia maintaining a highly secure border with the country. The People's Republic was been a one-party state, with only the Communist Party of Hytekia being permitted to campaign or run in elections, which were run in six-year intervals. President Gailis, who had been in power since 1992, was the chairman of the People's Party. Gailis saw success in the First Grobina War but the Second Grobina War would ultimately lead to failure as an Alemannic coalition beared down on the country. Hytekia surrendered in 1998 and was occupied until 2001, when it was liberated under a new, free republic.
