|Parties to the civil conflict|
The Luepolan Uprising of 1979, commonly known as the March Uprising, was a period of widespread civil unrest and limited internal conflict that occurred in the State of Luepola. The conflict started with protests in the town of Utrna; mass arrests and the shooting of civilians caused further unrest to sweep the nation. The uprising saw the defection of some units of the Luepolan Home Guard to the protestors, clashing with other units in armed gunfights. The unrest ultimately led to the Sliet voting President Zdrávko Kasun out of office in an impromptu referendum backed by the military; his successor Mateus Branković began implementing the protestors' demands in earnest.

Attempted Raids on Protest Leaders
The reassertion of sovereignty in Luepola inspired the populace of neighboring Vorochia to similarly revolt against the pro-Vierz government. Without a sympathetic faction present in the Vorochian legislature, Vorochians instead took up arms and overthrew the government with the tacit approval of the military.
Vierz Intervention in Luepola
Following Luepola's announcement of its intention to withdraw from the CPCA, the Vierz Empire planned and carried out an invasion of Luepola in order to resecure the country. The Luepolan War came to be the deadliest war fought in Patyria since the Great War.
