100 PW (Pre-War):
It is 100 PW, and relations in Derbaun are growing steadily uneasy. The official parliament declared a state of emergency after a group of 6,000 Heraldians protested about the regional government "We want to be free!" The would scream, marching around the parliament doors, Among them, was Henry Hendin.

Henry Hendin was a famous printer, blacksmith, grocer, cartographer, AND geologist during the time he was alive. He was a fiercely patriotic and independent fellow, and in his short autobiography A man who Had a Tail he stated "Not only was it beneath us to be governed by such scum, but it was crazy, that we should have to do whatever they say. After becoming the leader of the Independence Compact, he bought 10 boats.

The next part in the regions history is called the Great Migration; With the 10 boats, the 10,000 supporters of the compact loaded on, and set sail for the unknown lands, a fairy tail told to young kids about a faraway place, you could only get to if you were good.

2 years later, the Compact landed in what is now Gon-Chu city in East Ying. They set up a base camp and called the country "The Free Land of The Unknown". This was the beginning of the Ying Empire.

200 PW (Pre-War):
100 years after the base camp was built, a small city named Gold City was built near the mouth of the Goldy River. Settlers from different regions came to take advantage of the land that awaited across the Lialac Ocean, or what's now come to be known as, The Hendin Ocean, after the explorer.
The settlements stretched out all the way along the river, but no one ventured out southward, to what's now Jo-Min city. They were afraid of the forests that lay ahead just in view on the horizon, and there were no sources of water to be seen, but that is a common illusion, there were actually 25 lakes.

A young fellow and his friends, who have not yet to be identified, who called themselves "The New Pact" decided to run away from home and venture south. But as clever as they were, they were followed by many explorers, who had heard them talking in the public lounge in Gold City.

According to a log written by the leader of the "pact" they found many lakes, and other rivers which they named after their crushes, they are now the
"Henrietta River", the "Lea River", and the "Kornelia River". After they had been gone for 1 day, the came to the edge of the "Gordoni Lake", and set up a base camp, and then realized the explorers coming to them. This was what was called the expansion era, and lasted for 300 years.

The geography is simple. There are the two Oceans bordering the region, the Hendin Ocean, and The Ying Ocean, which are on the east and west of the mass of land. To the west there is a narrow pass of land where you are always 100 feet from the water. Then comes the Jon Forrest, which is followed by another vast expanse of land, the size of Africa. To the north, there are the Hendin Mountain Range, the smallest mountain in the range is as tall as Mnt. Everest. Everywhere there are shining lakes, all connected by the main waterway, the Hendin River, which has a source on Gohn Mountain, the tallest mountain the the Hendin Mountain Range. The Hendin river is connected by canals to the ocean in multiple places, and also has other canals connecting it to cities. It ends at Mirror Falls, which empties into the Great mirror lake, in the Horris Forest.

The Region has no "favorite" political party out of those who run, and every year the citizens seem to fancy a different party. Here are the parties:

The Central Fusion Party:
The CFP or the 'Fusion' party as it is widely called is the party most people seem to vote constantly for. The CFP tries to calm everything down and have a more, peaceful region. It is a very energy efficient party, and it was the party that preserved most of the rivers, forests and lakes from being cut down or filled in. They also are fiercely defensive, and usually make a lot of treaties. People also refer to the party as "The Coward Party".

The Hendin Party:
The Hendin party was the original political party that Hendin himself started. It is the least voted for party, and is referred to as the HP's. They are a very independent party, and usually allow nations to do anything. They are also usually very humble, they prefer not to aid any other country, and will fight it's own wars without assistance. They also take great interest in building monuments and statues

Gonko Party:
The Gonko Party is the second most voted for party. It is referred to as TDRPG. The Gonkos are very offensive, and will fight in any wars, and aid anybody. They are the most 'Jolly' party in the region, and usually bind the nations to rules, but usually let nations slide...
