Minerals and Ore
From the knowledge recovered from old books in the Wohlstandic archives, the original refugees from Old Wohlstand fleeing from turmoil and famine landed long ago on the Járn Saari. Once they had settled they announced that this was their "Lasken", said to be from an old eastern Wohlstandic dialect it translates to "Landing". These early Wohlstandic peoples were said to have created many beautiful artworks and architecture, early modern Wohlstandic architecture were more primitive and smaller than their earlier counterparts. the only known settlement from these older Wohlstandic peoples was the ruined city of Kirsoka which was destroyed in the Wohlstandic Reformation.
The earliest era of modern Wohlstand, "Rise" consisted mostly of infrastructural projects and conflict. The former capital city of Wohlsteinn was constructed during this era, but most attention was on the nearby settlement of Northbay, which was claimed during the short time Wohlstand was incorporated inside Montrose. Northbay was an early Wohlstandic agriculture center, which was soon transferred when Wohlstand seceded from Montrose and more attention was centered on the Járn Saari which translates to "the Iron Islands". One of the earliest conflicts Wohlstand was involved in was the Schevakian claiming of Northbay, known as the Northbay Tensions by Wohlstandians. The outcome of these tensions was a peaceful one, something the older Wohlstandians were pleased with.
"Sea of Growth"
The era known as "Sea of Growth", was an era made up of a variety of political, ideological, and architectural changes, mostly due to the newest Wohlstandian at the time Bowilla. Bowilla is widely regarded as a incredibly important figure in Wohlstand's history, shaping Wohlstands ethics and ideals, along with bringing architectural ideas, and new literature to Wohlstand. During this era the capital city of Wohlsteinn was expanded, focusing on shipbuilding and metalworks. With the surge of nationalistic fervor during this era, the tree became a important figure to Wohlstandians, as Wohlstand itself was a barren, hilly landscape, To Wohlstandians the tree was a symbol of defiance and perseverance.
"Shaken" was an unsure and crippling time for Wohlstand, "Shaken" is named after the shaken ideals and thoughts during this era. During this era Wohlstand had joined the Balkan Federation, a collection of states in the Balkan region. Wohlstandian ideals and thoughts were influenced by other states, and culminated in the Wohlstandian claiming of Schevakian Illyria, which after the PRS ultimatum of unclaiming Schevakian Illyria within 24 hours was ignored, war had broken out between the Schevakian Bloc and The Balkan Federation, shortly after this a group of Balkan Federation members set fire to the Schevakian capital city, with this event the Schevakian people were in uproar with the Schevakian allies of Sylvia, Fianna, and Ozai, coming to their aid with small shipments of arms from Goomlandia. Soon after the news had reached Wohlstand, Wohlstand had left the Balkan Federation after hearing the atrocities committed in Schenektengrad. Wohlstand had been spared the retaliation of the Schevakian Bloc after evidence was released that Wohlstand had no involvement in the event, this could not be said for its former allies. In the aftermath, former Wohlk 0kej abdicated the throne to Bowilla, after a period of inactivity following the abdication the citizen Duguntho and the former Wohlk revolted against the new king Bowilla, this revolt suceeded and a short lived communist goverment was implemented to recover lost resources. Bowilla, feeling regret, betrayal, and shame left Wohlstand, leaving 0kej and the new member Duguntho to sail the rough and stormy "Sea of Wohlstand".
"Sea of Wohlstand"
The era known as "Sea of Wohlstand", was an era made up of predominantly stagnation, due to the isolationist policies after the Balkan Troubles introduced by Wohlk 0kej, and the inactivity spike after the leaving of Bowilla. This left former Wohlk 0kej to do most of the daily upkeep for the nation, not all of the outcomes of this era were negative. The beautiful and resort city of Vigí was built in one of Wohlstand's colonies, after the isolationist policies were lifted trade boomed with coal, stone, and many villager goods being exported. Northbay had its agricultural production increased along with a small settlement to accompany its new fields. Sadly, at the end of this era Wohlstand collapsed under inactivity and its various stability problems, this left a wave of refugees looking to settle elsewhere, with a small amount of Wohlstandians choosing to stay in the Járn Saari.
This era focuses on the settlement of Wohlstandians in the Schevakian state of Ambrosia, as the events in the Járn Saari are negligible, "New Fields?" which is named after the segment of land that was given to the Wohlstandians by the Schevakians of Ambrosia. On this land the town of Svarborg was created which focused on agriculture and alcohol production. This settlement was short lived, after 3 months Bowilla had returned to rally the Wohlstandians and create a new state on the Járn Saari.
This era, "Revolution", was a short one. As Bowilla had rallied the Wohlstandians back to their home island, the Járn Saari, the Schevakian states were reforming into a new empire looking to have Wohlstandians as imperial subjects. After a little over a month the Wohlstandic revolution on the Járn Saari had lost, and the Wohlstandians left the Island for new
