Overview

Land surrounding Kovska

The Kingdom of Kovska (formerly the Republic of Kovska) is a sizable new nation in the northeast of the Overworld, led by King HugeMoistNameJef, who claims power through the words of Oarfans. When it was founded, the Kingdom reached from the new nation of Ilyria to the nation of Nyania. The nation's neighbors were Gayrden. Hightower, Liberalia, Nyania and Vailan.

History

Founding (11/27/19)

Kosvka was founded by HugeMoistNameJef, after he invited his friend Cimcimmy to join the server. Beforehand HugeMoistNameJef lived under Bagelonia in the Wolf Woods. The founding of Kovska had a discrepancy with Nyania; Although not created in name yet, Cimcimmy and HugeMoistNameJef were already in the land, when Nyania claimed the land. After a brief discussion, Nyania decided to cede the land to birth the new nation of Kovska. The nation was surrounded by a river on three sides, with mountains to the east.

The Mountain Purchase (11/30/19)

Kovska's ally, Gimnkrasni, forcibly invaded and annexed the southern parts of Nyania near their border. Gimnkrasni immediately put up their acquired land on sale for very cheap. In the map attached, Kovska purchased the land labeled "South" for 16 iron.

Many people were worried about Goomlandia purchasing the land labeled "North", giving a non "Northern" country land in the north. But it was eventually purchased by Kovska's peaceful allies to the east, Hightower.

The Crusade of Nyania (12/01/19)

Partitioning of Nyania

Yugoslav player fbia34 banded together with a group of nearing 10 players who were uncomfortable with the over-expansive size of Nyania. Fbia34 sent an ultimatum to Northern countries: Abstain from defense of Nyania or get ravaged by the crusade. HugeMoistNameJef, fearing for his relatively new country's safety, chose to spare his nation. After Vailan completely crushed the crusaders, Vailan was forced to cut Nyania down to size to avoid backlash from the international community. Land was partitioned between the countries of Gayrden, Hightower, and Kovska, with Kovska receiving the biggest amounts by land percentage.

The Sale of The Mountain Purchase (12/02/19)

The Sale of The Mountain Purchase

The first land gained by Kovska, the land purchased from Gimnkrasni in their invasion of Nyania, was agreed to be sold to Hightower in exchange for a small amount of coastal territory and land to the coast. This was a definite "Bro moment" which created the long boi look that Kovska has on the map. During this time Stargourdian joined the nation.

HugeMoistNameJef's Political Takeover (12/9/19)

Cimcimmy hands over his power after heated debate.

The more active and seemingly more liked by the international community of the two consuls, HugeMoistNameJef, took advantage of Cimcimmy's political blunders in the Progeria Problem, and declared himself King of Kovska after heated internal debating of politics. HugeMoistNameJef became King after Cimcimmy ceded his power to him.

Shortly after on 12/11/19 Cimcimmy was banned from the server after partaking in the indiscriminate griefings alongside members of progeria, (See Progeria, and Progerian Massacre)

During this time period, three new inhabitants join Kovska: Stargourdian (12/01/19) , Ghostman0111 (12/19/19), and jojo5291 (12/25/19).

Land Cessions (12/26/19)

Purple going to Nyania, White to Gayrden, and Yellow to Kovska.

HugeMoistNameJef made the decision to sell land in order to make a more centralized state.

Originally the deal was to swap land with Gayrden, giving up land that is very far away from the capital, in exchange for land that is closer to the capital that may be used.

Another deal was brought up, which Kovska brokered with Nyania a while ago, but didn't make any claim of: Kovska sold the swamplands in purple to Nyania.
On 2/2/20 Kovska ceded the land demarcated by red shading.

Land Cessions (2/2/20)

Due to the unuse of the land in the north granted to Kovska in the aftermath of the Crusade of Nyania, It was beneficial to release the land to newer players who wished to settle in the north.

Expanse towards Vailan (4/28/20)

Land claimed in order to make a border with Vailan

Due to excellent relations with Vailan in the Northern Coalition, Kovska and Vailan created plans to make an overland road connecting their capitals. In order to secure the road, Kovska claimed land to create a border with Vailan.

Land Cessions (7/02/20)

Government

The former government of Kovska was a government run by two consul's, which were voted on by the landed elite of Kovska. The two consuls do not need to consult to anyone to make decisions, but one can veto the other. This was changed in HugeMoistNameJef's take over of politics. He claims the right to rule as a king because of his extreme competence, claiming to be crowned by the Divine power of Oarfans. Despite claiming power through Oarfans, Kovska is a nation tolerant to all religions.

Land in the nation is split up by dukes, who own the land but are direct vassals of the King of Kovska.

Barons have control over their granted land, and are able to trade with foreign powers and war within the kingdom.

Dukes have higher control over their land, taking all that barons can do but also are able to enact their owns laws that apply to their land. Dukes can also engage in warfare with foreign countries
