East Heaven National Anthem

East Heaven Kingdom was a small kingdom located on the western part of the Paova Major continent. It was formed on November of 2979 at the end of generations of civil wars when the land was finally unified. Its capital is the city of Veluca. It is a place with strong military tradition and has a strict honor code.


East Heaven Kingdom was the successor to the Kingdom of Hermantine, who's capital was Il de Hermantine.  It possessed one of the strongest armies in White Giant, and had been successful in every war it had entered until 3171.  Known by the abbreviation EHK, it was well respected in the international community.

Monarchy

Main article: Royal Family

East Heaven was ruled by an absolute monarchy that is assisted by the aformentioned Houses.  The Serene Queen in the year 3171, the start of the Union-Pegersian War, was Morgan na Colliete.

Clan na Colliete resided in Castle Colliete, located in the port city of Veluca.  During the reign of House Selis, the clan was elevated from a county to a duchy for its services to the Royal Court.  After House Selis' fall from power, Clan na Colliete consolidated their power and gained the alliance of both Clan na Mindelan and Clan na Dandiville.  When they reunited the land, it was changed to East Heaven and they were given the gift of the royal sword "Cherry Blossom Princess" in trust.  Combined with na Colliete's own Emerald Star Jewel, makes up the Crown Jewels of East Heaven and were presented to each new monarch when crowned. These items were evacuated to Aquitania during the end stages of the Union-Pegersian War. Another item was the Royal Command Sword "Claíomh Solas".  During times of war, this sword was given to the person chosen to take command of the Ríoga na Fórsaí Armtha as Grand Marshal, it was lost during the Union-Pegersian War.

The reigning monarch ruled from the Sapphire Place, which was a part of the "Gemstone Palace" project funded by former Serene Queen Elspeth I Selis of Hermantine during her reign. Both palaces were bombed in the year 3173 and subsequently demolished by Pegersian occupation forces. 

History

For history of the former Kingdom of Hermantine, see here.

War of Unification (2910-2979)

The War of Unification, or the Clan Wars, was a series of battles and skirmishes that resulted in Clan na Colliete unifying the land and forming the East Heaven Kingdom.  The war began with the destruction of Clan na mór Tiarna, which was the most powerful clan at the time.  At the time, Clan na mór Tiarna was maintaining an uneasy peace between two great clans:  Clan na mór Bás and Clan na Colliete.  Whilst Clan na Colliete was maintaining a peaceful relationship with Clan na mór Tiarna, Clan na mór Bás had been noted for its many unwarranted skirmishes with the various nearby clans as well as oppressing its subordinate clans.  On April 20, 2910, clan head Tobais na mór Tiarna, his wife, and three sons were brutally murdered in their estate by members of Clan na mór Bás.  Clan head Reamus na mór Bás then declared himself the head of all the clans.

Battle of Bans Head (Jun 19, 2910-Jun 20, 2910)

A two-day battle between Clan na Colliete and the survivors of Clan na mór Tiarna, and Clan na mór Bás.  It began at 0825 local time while survivors of Clan na mór Tiarna, now led by Connor na mór Tiarna, attempted to flee their fief towards fiefs held by one of Clan na Colliete's allies.  At 0940 local time, they were joined by troops from Clan na Mindelan, who were to act as escorts.  At 1100 local time, they were passing thru Bans Head, a large hill overlooking somemarshlands located north of the city of Monteron, when forces of Clan na mór Bás ambushed the recon element of Clan na Mindelan, believing it to be the main force of Mindelan escorts.  This allowed the remaining units to retire to Bans Head, fortify it, and send a request for reinforcements to Veluca.  At 1400, a general attack was ordered on Bans Head.  For four hours, fierce fighting was reported throughout the Mindelan/mór Tiarna lines.  Though the lines did bend, there no reports of the line breaking.  At 1800, reinforcements from Veluca arrived to strengthen the lines.  Clan na mór Bás attempted once again to take Bans Head, but couldn't breach the lines.  They retired to their 1100 starting point and waited until morning to recomence hostilities.  During the night, Clan na Colliete launched a surprise night attack on Clan na mór Bás.  During the attack, the commander of Clan na mór Bás forces, Balin na mór Bás, was killed.  Without their leader, Clan na mór Bás was forced to withdraw from Bans Head in defeat.  The direct result of this battle is that Clan na Dandiville official joined with Clan na Colliete.

The Expansionist Age (2979-2892)

At the suggestion of her First Minister, the Sacred Princess ordered Grand Marshall Keladry of Mindelan to mobilize the Ríoga na Fórsaí Armtha to take back some of the hereditary lands once ruled by East Heaven. In the span of two years, Keladry of Mindelan was able to take back both the Duchy of El Nido and the Duchy of Radiata. With these successful conquests, the Ríoga na Fórsaí Armtha began its stand down period to allow the kingdom time to recover from campaigns.

Duchy of Radiata

An independent duchy, Radiata is the northern most territory of East Heaven Kingdom. After the fall of Hermantine, Radiata became besieged by militia groups attempting to gain control of the duchy. After hearing about the militia groups, Radiata's military force (Radiata Knight Guard) was reinforced by the Ríoga na Fórsaí Armtha, which began a devastating air campaign followed by the landing of the 1st Motor Rifle Division. With East Heaven's assistance, the Duchy of Radiata became secure once again.

Dandiville Rebellion (2979-2982)

The Duchy of Dandiville, which was subjucated during the reunification, initiated a rebellion. Taken by surprise, the eastern area, including Fort Hancock, has been occupied. It's leader, Duke Balin na Dandiville, cited that na Colliete has weakened the country allowing foreigners into the country. Taking control of the Dandiville Guard and forming various militia groups, he has begun a guerrila war.

The Duchy of Dandiville Guards was able to hold back both the Duchy of Selona and the Duchy of Hermania Alba's Guards in a pitch battle. Dandiville forces were themselves pushed back with the arrival of the First Motor Rifle Division. General Hannibal of Kelton has defected to the Duchy of Dandiville and was given command of the duchy's military forces. In response, Marshall Keladry of Mindelan has taken command of the 1st Motor Rifle Division and is marching to engage General Hannibal.

After a series of stunning victories, General Hannibal of Kelton was defeated by Celistia na Hermernia Alba, a direct decendant to Hermantine Royal Family, while approaching the capital city Veluca. During his withdrawal back to Dandiville-control areas, His forces were then attack by troops under command of Grand Marshall Keladry of Mindelan, resulting in his death. Afterwards, Fort Hancock surrendered to royal forces and the duke of Dandiville flees, leaving behind his entire family. It is rumored that he and his remnant forces are making their way to the Lusitanian Confederation to continue to his war.

The Rise of the Nyx Revolutionary Movement

Formed January 3005, they were said to be behind a number of attacks on government officials, including the Sacred Princess's assassination attempt.  Naming themselves after the God of Death, they see themselves as missionaries to the god Nyx.

Military

Created-Female-32

Grand Marshal-Ríoga na Fórsaí Armtha Iris of Hermantine

East Heaven's military, known as the Ríoga na Fórsaí Armtha, was the main fighting and defensive force of the kingdom. It was headed by the Grand Marshal, who would at times lead the army into battle. The Ríoga na Fórsaí Armtha had four main branches: The Ríoga ar Neamh Airm, based at the Royal Lanseal Base, which consisted of all offensive land units; The Ríoga ar Neamh Cabhlach, based off of the EHS Kagutsuchi, commanded all naval units; The Ríoga ar Neamh Aeir Grúpa, based out of the Royal Valencia Air Base, commanded all air units; and the Ríoga Mílíste based out of Fort Hancock commanded all defensive units. There were also a few lesser branches apart of the military. One was the Ríoga ar Neamh Ordaithe Straitéiseach, which was based out of Fort Dragonia. It commanded the nuclear arsenal of East Heaven. The other is the Ríoga nGarda Teorann Neamh, which protected all border crossing points.  One of the main differences between the militia and the regular army was unit identification.  A guard unit was classified as Guards Rifle.  Only regular army used the term "Motor Rifle".

Ríoga ar Neamh Airm

Rei Lei

Great General-Ríoga ar Neamh Airm, General Marshal Rei Lei

It was the power behind the kingdom's military power. Utilizing rapid speed and the power of its armor units, they were sucessful in all engagements. The Ríoga ar Neamh Airm consisted in 3170 of six powerful motor rifle divisions, each with its own independent tank brigade and artillery regiment. This allowed each division to act independent during a war. The Ríoga ar Neamh Airm was led by the appointed Great General.  In the Ríoga ar Neamh Airm, there were five different classification for foot soldiers:  Scouts, Shock Troopers, Lancers, Medics, and Armour Techs.  Scouts, as the name implies, were mainly used for recon and as skirmishers.  They used long-range semi-automatic rifles and bolt-action sniper rifles. The Shock Troopers, or Troopers for short, were the backbone of the infantry force. They utilized medium-range semi- and fully- automatic weapons, as well as flamethrowers to use against strongpoints.  Lancers were anti-tank infantry.  They were so named because they used the M-207 anti-tank lance missile.  Medics were lightly armed soldiers trained in battlefield medical practices, and thus handled all injuries until the wounded were transported to a hospital.  Armour Techs, or engineers as they were sometimes called, handled fortifications and explosives.  They also were drivers of light infantry vehicles, and used pistols and submachine guns.  In the Ríoga ar Neamh Airm, there were five basic unit classifications:  platoon, company, regiment, brigade, and division.  Each had a set number of personnel assigned to them (excluding officers).  The only exception to that rule were battalions, which were considered irregulars, artillery regiments, and tank bridages which were considerably less due to their armor capability.  The personnel numbers were as follows (ca 3171):
  • Division:  25,000 to 50,000
  • Brigade:  5000 men
  • Battalion: 500-2500 men
  • Regiment:  1000 men

Invincible class Battlecruiser

Invincible-class Battlecruiser

The space navy of East Heaven. Centered around three Invincible-class battlecruisers, the EHS Dewprism, Book of Cosmos, and Hermantine, its purpose was to defend East Heaven Kingdom from threats outside of the planet of White Giant.  The battlecruisers main weaponry was their long-range turbocannons, which had the power to punch through most ship armors.  The Invincible-class battlecruisers was designed for ship-to-ship combat.  Since being formed, the space navy had increased its number of battlecruisers to 12 ships, each with at least one fighter squadron of 12 single-pilot ships with the max being 4 squadrons.  The standard load-out was 2 fighter squadrons, 1 interceptor squadron, and 1 bomber squadron.

Invincible-class Battlecruiser

The Invinicible-class battlecruiser was a capital ship, designed to lead formations and to deal a great amount of damage.  While not as large as an Aquitanian Savoy-class battlecruiser, it was equally deadly because of its weapon systems and its single-pilot ships.

  • Four twin-barrel long-range turbocannons
  • Anti-ship concussion torpedoes, 12 tubes
  • Anti-fighter percussion missiles, 20 tubes
  • Point-defense anti-fighter turrents, 40
  • Two ion cannons
Shielding

Propulsion

The Invinicible-class was powered by 2 fusion generators, which in turn powered the three J-77 Event Horizon engines.  This gave the battlecruiser its speed to out manuever larger ships.

  • Thane- The Northerns equivalence of a Knight.  Names were preceded by Thane
  • Lord/Lady- A noble without a title or estate
  • Squire-Title given to knights-in-training. Held that title for four years before having to pass a test known as the Ordeal.
  • Page-Title given to children undergoing the beginning four years of knight training.

Non-Nobility Titles

These titles were used by people that were not of gentry status, though it was possible for such people to gain gentry status.  These titles were only used during formal functions and were placed before the person's name.

  • Patrician:  Highest non-noble title; became eligible for noble status
  • Free Citizen: Title that gave political regard.  These people were allowed to form corporations.
  • Citizen:  Title that grants full rights;  persons who gained this title could run for any non-noble office positions and could expand their business into other cities.
  • Citizen without Full Rights:  Title given to those who gained their citizenship; however, they could not run for high-level office positions, and were allowed to start up a business in their home city.
  • Yeoman:  Title used by people attempting to become citizens.

Knighthood

All nobles and Patricians were eligible for knighthood.  In East Heaven, a knight could be either an administrator or a frontline military officer.  The process was eight years long, with the minimal age being 10 years old and the maximum being 14.  The process was broken down into three steps:  pagehood, squiredom, and the Trial of the Ordeal.  Pagehood and squiredom lasted for four years, with the trial being the last stage before being knighted.  As pages, children were trained in one of two locations, the Lanseal Royal Military Academy or the Sapphire Palace in Veluca.  As a page, training included martial studies, court etiquette, science, and history.  After four years, they were given a test to see what they learned.  If they failed the test, or did not show up for the test, they would have to repeat the four years of page training again.  If a page failed a second time, they would be removed from page training and be barred from any future knight training.  Those who passed would then move on to become a squire.  During that time, a squire could be interned with a knight to receive on-the-job training, while those who were not would be assigned to a regional governing center to recieve training.  After four years as a squire, they would face the final test:  the Trial of the Ordeal.  For a full night, a squire would be placed in the Chamber of the Gods.  The reason and process was unknown to those who didn't receive knighthood training, and the fact that no knight ever talked about their Ordeal, the East Heaven Kingdom took these secrets to the grave following its capitulation in 3175. Those who passed the Ordeal would be knighted and would take up residence in the Sapphire Palace until assigned to a location or military unit.

The most famous university in East Heaven was the old Collegum, located in Il de Hermantine, the former capital of the Kingdom of Hermantine. For the military, the greatest academy was the Royal Lanseal Military Academy, located in the southwestern area of East Heaven Kingdom. Among others were the University of Tallisibeth, named in honor of the Celestial Princess.

Geography

East Heaven's landscape is comprised of flatlands, rivers, rolling hills, and forests.  Aside from the man-made mountain that surrounded the capital city known as the Astarael Mountains, the Bazirian Desert to the southwest, Foraoise Breataine to the west, the Grand Swamp located in the Duchy of Dandiville, there were no changes in the landscape and most regions were mainly divided by the duchies, earldoms, baronies, and counties of the area.

Law Enforcement and Crime

While most low level and medium level crimes were still handled by local law enforcement agencies and county sheriffs, kingom law enforcement was handled by two groups: The Royal Police Service, or Ríoga Seirbhís Póilíneachta, and by the Bhanda Rónaofa, or Sacred Band, which was also the royal guards of the Serene Queen.

Within the court system, judges were known as magistrates, with the head magistrate being the Chief Magistrate.  The civillian police force were manned by constables, while the military police were known as provost marshals.  The Ríoga Feistithe Póilíní, or RFP served as East Heaven's mounted police was used mainly to track down escaping prisoners.

The Slándála Poiblí, or Public Security was an agency that handled tactical training including hostage neigotiations and rescue, cyber crimes, and drug enforcement.

Law Enforcement was handled by the Ministry of Justice.  All law enforcement agencies, aside from the Bhanda Rónaofa, reported to the Minister of Justice.  The Bhanda Rónaofa, as the bodyguards of the Royal Family, only reported to the Serene Queen or the Queen's Own.

Demographics

East Heaven had large population living within its borders.  Around 20% were Hermanians who made the move from the Greater Veronica Region when the government was forced to abandon the area.  60% are those who were native Oithir people who originally lived within the kingdom.  The rest was a mix of citizenry from allied nations, with Aquitanians being the most.

Language

In East Heaven Kingdom, there were two major officially spoken languages:  Oithir and Old Hermanian.  Around 46 million people used those languages in a 3100 census.

Oithir is a Gallic-based language, and was used by the clans before the arrival of the poeple of Hermantine.  Though there are many variations to Oithir, many phrases are the same.  Old Hermanian is based of the French language once used in Ontario, and was brought over when the government fled to what is now East Heaven.

Ethnic Groups

The largest group living in East Heaven were the original inhabitants once known as the Daoine na Fhinte, now generally refered to by their language: Oithir.  They made up about 60% of the total population.  The characterisitics of this ethnic group is pale and tanned white skin, medium to tall height, a vibrant blue or green eyes, and hair color ranging from blonde to red.  Many women were known to wear hair ornaments, usually a flower for older teenagers and adults, and ribbons and bows were worn by small children and early teens. This ethnic group is the second largest in Aquitania, which received many refugees during and after the Union-Pegersian War. 

The second largest group were the Hermanians, who immigrated after the fall of the Kingdom of Hermantine.  They made up about 20% of the total population.  The characterisitics of this ethnic group were pale white skin, medium height, hazel or green eyes, and hair color ranging from brown to black.

The third largest were the Xianese and Yamani people, who reside in Jiangzhou and Izumi respectively.  They made up 10% of the total population.  The characterisitics of these ethnic groups were yellowish color skin, medium height, brown eyes and in rare cases-blue eyes, and black hair color.

The fourth largest were the Aquitainian people.  They made up about 5% of the total population.  This was due to the East Heaven-Aquitania Bond, which also made it easier for an Aquitanian to gain citizenship, as they were given a title equivalent to their standing in Aquitania, with aristocrats and old nobility still being able to hold an East Heaven equivalent title, and commoners held the title of Citizen Without Full Rights upon entry.  Most Aquitaines tended to live in Veluca or Ville de Hermantine, but there had been a noted rise of Aquitanians living in the water city of Mac Anu. While most who entered East Heaven were civilians, a few were military personnel.  Most military personnel lived around the area of Gaoth Garda Air Base and the Royal Lanseal Military Academy.  Most Aquitanians living in East Heaven during the Union-Pegersian War died as a result of the initial attacks, the remainder emigrated to Aquitania after the defeat of East Heaven.

Foreign Relations

As a member of United Sovereign States, East Heaven enjoyed good relationships with all members of the federtation. In the year 2989, a Treaty of Close Friendship, or the East Heaven-Aquitania Bond was re-signed into effect, reviving the old Aquitania-Hermantine Bond signed in 2867. 

Embassies

Under the command of the Ministry of Foreign Affiars, East Heaven maintained embassies in several of its allies nations.  Each embassy was protected by the ministry's Diplomatic Guards and an infantry regiment of the Ríoga ar Neamh Airm.  Also, every embassy had outer and inner defense weapons.  The outer defense consisted of four pulse cannons that fired electrical bursts that could immobilize an adult and disabled most motorized vehicles.  The inner defense were point defense cannons, which were designed to maim or kill an intruder.  The inner defense was activated when the infantry regiment was in danger of being over-run. Names of nations are witten in Oithir:
