Republic of Namor (1915-25)
Template:Infobox Former Country The Republic of Namor (abbreviated as the RON) was a sovereign state in eastern Velkia established in 1915. Between the reunification in Namor in 1921 and the retreat of the Republican government to Peitoa in 1925, the RON was the sole government of Namor.
The RON was founded by Namorese republicans in opposition to the Restoration of 1915, which ended the fragile compromise that had existed between the monarchists and republicans following the Revolution of 1910. Though officially a multiparty state, the RON was actually controlled by the Republican Party of Namor, a successor to the anti-monarchist Namorese Democratic Brotherhood. Jacob Cho, the ousted prime minister under the constitutional monarchy, became the RON's first prime minister, but eventually ceded power to Jung To, a general who led the RON's war on the restorationists in the six-year Unification War.
Originally based in Mojing, the RON moved the capital to Namo after the city surrendered to republican forces in 1921. That same year, a new constitution replaced the parliamentary system with a presidential one; however, the disputed election of Jung To caused a rupture between the ruling Republican Party and the Liberationists - then the largest de facto opposition party - which in turn resulted in the outbreak of another civil war. The Liberationists earned the support of the vast majority of Namorese peasants, in addition to smaller parties opposed to Jung's presidency. By 1925, the Republicans had effectively lost control of the mainland and relocated to Peitoa, which became the seat of the RON government.
The period between 1915 and 1925 is oftentimes referred to as the Republican decade (Кунгхо Деканин tr. Kungho Dekanin). The Republican decade has been characterized by political and social strife, as well as by an unprecedented level of intellectual and religious freedom.
