Believed to be the origin of humanity,


Etymology

The name Yemet is derived from the phrase Yemeto Negedi Merēti, meaning Land of the Hundred Tribes, the traditional name of the Talanzi people for the region. In the colonial period Yemet was more often known as 'Haute-Gond' under Gaullican colonial rule and then 'Obergond' under Weranian colonial rule, both derived from the river Gonda that flows through the country. The government of Yemet rejects both names, but they are still used in both countries, and more rarely across Euclea, usually by older generations.

History

Prehistoric Yemet

-Probable origin of homo sapiens
-Inhabited for thousands of years, wealth of archaeological sites

Ancient Yemet (c. 3000 BC - c. 650 AD)

-Proto-sare system of rule by priests
-Confederal system organised based on interpretation on will of spirits, augury

Irfanic Expansion (c. 650 - c. 1100)

Medieval Yemet (c. 1100 - 1450)

Early Modern Yemet (1450 - 1865)

Haute-Gond (1863 - 1934)

Flag of the Gaullican colony of Haute-Gond.

-Conquered by 1863, allied Sotirian and Irfanic rulers made into protectorates, coastal regions directly ruled by colonial administration
-Abolishment of caste system, establishment of large rubber plantations under Gaullican ownership, seizure of lands from Irfanic rulers, transfer of mines to Companie Royale de Haute-Gond, formation of large numbers of Tirailleurs Bahiens units from the former Irfanic warrior caste, abolishment of slavery
-Major revolts in Sougoulie, Irfanic traditional rulers + largely Irfanic Tirailleurs Bahiens manage to win a few battles initially against native Sotirian forces + Gaullican-loyal Irfanics, crushed upon the arrival of reinforcements from elsewhere in Bahia by 1884 in Gondan Expedition. Final part of revolt to be crushed. Survivors flee into jungles, burn Gaullican rubber plantations irregularly throughout 1880s, meld back into civilian population by 1890s, restricting of recruitment of Tirailleurs Bahiens to Sotirian natives
-Sporadic revolts by individual Irfanic tribal groups from 1890 to 1926, none particularly successful, most crushed within a year with minor Gaullican losses, but large numbers of civilian casualties and rebel casualties
-Re-establishment of Tirailleurs Bahiens during Great War, eager mass volunteering of former Irfanic warrior caste, used in invasions of Estmerish and Weranian colonies
-Colony handed over to Werania in post-war treaties, modern Kulo State split off from Baséland in exchange for Magadi being split off from Haute-Gond to give to Estmere.

Obergond (1934 - 1953)

Flag of the Weranian colony of Obergond.

-Faced immediate widespread revolt by Irfanic Tirailleurs Bahiens that refused to lay down their arms, Weranian troops, rearmed Sotirian Tirailleurs Bahiens, troops of loyal local rulers and a few remaining regular Gaullican Army soldiers used to suppress revolt, disarm Irfanic units, many flee into jungles inspired by the Sougoulie and fight a guerrilla war, coastal area transferred to colonial administration of Masari
-Gaullican-owned mines, industry, land doled out to various Weranian companies, campaign within Werania to settle Yemet offering cheap land and housing
-New caste system de facto established as Irfanic urban populace forcibly relocated to countryside, intended to be replaced with Weranian settlers, cities to be self-governing, limited native representation through literacy tests and wealth and property restrictions, Irfanic population to be represented and controlled by traditional rulers
-Discrimination, forced relocation, poor pay and working conditions contributed to series of strikes and protests and formation of Irfanic trade unions in 1930s and early 1940s, strikes broken up by Weranian troops or Sotirians employed as strike-breakers, trade unions banned but continued in secret
-Continued growth of Irfanic resistance and international pressure to decolonise saw independence granted in 1953 as First Federation of Yemet
