The Fascist Kingdom of Monto (also refered to informally as Monto) is a commonwelath with limited Monarchy and Fascist elements. The commonwealth is comprised of three states within Monto known as Berliova, Montanna, and Cundang the Capital Rona is located in Berliova. Monto is the most northern state on the western coast of Southern Fish. It is Bordered by the countries of CCA Socialist States, The Democratic Union of Santa karol (formerly known as the United People of Nabatto), The Commonwealth of Chilon, and Miramar. Monto has a land area of about 20,000mi and has a 200mi coastline which is home to many beautiful towns and prosperous coastal cities. The majority of Montos population centers, Factories, military Installations, and Capital (Rona) are located in the North State of Berliova though Analysts predict a steady growth of population in the other states of Montanna and Cundang as space becomes scarce and living expenses increase. Historically Monto has been a Kingdom ruled by a dynasty of ruthless Dictators but steady reform in ancient times has created a more democratic style of government with shifts between leftist and rightist forms of government occuring periodically. Monto has recently acquired the role of Finance Minister to the NATO federation one of the premier federations of White Giant and is a leader in the Southern Fish region
Ancient Times (Formation 563-1550)
Monto began as a small offshoot culture of the large and powerful Byinzantiane empire the leading city state was located in the Central Plains known as Cieve this city state was accompanyed by many other small citys each governed by its own municipal ruler a royal family was present but had no actual political power.the culture of Monto developed as it became a crossroads of a sea warrior civillization known as Lavings and other empires and governments in the inner sections of the Southern Fish region. During this time the Montans were known for their fine horsemanship skills and their wheat and alchohol production.
Age of Decline (1550-1650)
During this time period the young and decentralized culture of the Montans was overrun and annexed into the Gongolese Empire it became a large crossroads for military operations of the Gongolese against the ancient Laving Civillization. During ths time period the Montan culture was almost overrun but not forgotten.
Age of Uprisings (1650-1700)
The Age of Uprising began in the prosperous city of Flims as discontent flared through the Gongolese Empire after some strings of horrible losses the two races of Monto Molavians and Rivoklaks united to overthrow their occupiers under the leadership of the Shamus dynasty the final battle occured at the banks of the Colga river with large forces of horseman battling for supremacy
Age of Autocracy (1700-1917)
The First age of a unified Montan culture resulted in a thriving agrarian economy lead by a single ruler the king the Shamus dynasty ruled throughout the entirety of this era small wars were fought with small neighbors that usually resulted in Montan victory in the early 1900s however Monto lost its prominence and fell into economic decline resulting in the first and only abdication of King Vladstovin Shamus the following government was lead by a series of communist despots into the 21st century
Age of Disenfranchisement (1917-2250)
Named for the most famous poem of Montan history "Never Ends" written anonymously in 2000 this age was marked by a poor economy and large disparitys between the commonfolk and rulers Montan economy still relied heavily upon centralzed agriculture but in 1950 the first industrial revolution occured resulting in large urbanization this industral revoluton brought much hardship to the masses but brought a significant ammount of power to the state which in turn subjugated the commonfolk. Significant technological advances did occur and Monto launched its first spacecraft and developed its first cars, planes, skyscrapers among other things. This age ended when infighting between successors lead to a siezure of power by the monarchy which in turn created a democracy.
Age of the People (2250-2500)
Marked by the most culturally and socially advanced society then any other prevously seen in Montan history huge technological breakthroughs occured and Monto developed into a high tech state with a small wealthy population ended during the Great War between Monto and Nabatto a former Gongolese territory still ruled by governors loyal to the old empire
Age of Turmoil (2500-2850)
marked by small inefficient and incapable governments ranging from corrupt democracys to oppressive communist regimes marked by long term economic stagnation and a change from traditional Montan Lingala to English
Monarchial Era (2850-2962)
Rick Johnston a History
Rick Johnston was an officer in the army of Monto when a spring war broke out between Monto and Nabatto he charismatic personality led him to be revered by all he commanded and won him many war medals for valor and courgae.
When the spring war ended Rick went to Nabatto under the guise of a private bussiness man from CCA Socialist States who was experiancing severe overcrowding and poor economical development. He joined the Nabattan Nationalist Party and won the popular election through promises of economical and military development and his fiery rhetoric
He brought much power to Nabatto increasing employment and GDP while the population increased by 100% he developed the military to an unprecedented level in modern history while Nabatto prospered Monto suffered under the inefficient leadership of a socialist economy.
Nabatto invaded Monto in the year 2908 and the war was over in just over a year the government established a Nabattan controlled Aristocracy and began economic reform many of Nabattan funds were transfered to Monto to fuel this economic development and the tables turned Monto became to more powerful of the two states in the newly formed empire and was declared the capital state the aristocracy was deported and a democratic fascist state was formed the Nabattans suffered under Montan rule for a decade until the weak democracy garnered enough support from the people to withdraw from the union the withdrawl was peaceful and Monto troops withdrew promptly
This complex scheme dreamt by a single great man brought power to the Montan people and has been an important evet in leading them to where they are today
Rick Johnston retired in 2930 and died peacefully two years later at his mountain retreat in the town of Kori
Montan Civil War and Communist Spring (2933-2934)
This time period was characterized by communist uprisings in several nations in NATO including Monto and Stritch though many other nations were adversely effected most notably The Kingdom of Prussia
The revolt in Monto began during the presidency of Samuel Frump protestors in the port city of Flims took up arms due to threats of shortages and percieved excessive military spending and ran governmental agencies out of the city they barricaded themselves in the city while paramilitry forces setup a siege for one year the battle lines remained static though occasional uprisings occured in other towns across the country they were put down by elite Constantanian Contra forces
After about a year of siege organized and armed cities broke through the siege around the city and moved south to the capital city of the state of Montanna called Laos Pampa they conquered the whole state and battle lines formed vicious gunfights took place throughout the countryside and several large tank confrontations occured
During this time many countries of NATO and the UKO voiced there support for the Fascist state and offered armed support to the government. Many Montans were very wary of foriegners interfereing in their affairs and in order to mantain support of the people who were the main combatants as the military had been disbanded due to desertions in the military the communist monto and the Fascist Monto came to an agreement that arms were not to be accepted from any other countrys though later it was discovered that a state across the channel The Democratic Union of Morrolla had been supporting the Communists this later caused the first of the two Royal Wars
The Civil war was brought to an end when the Prince of Monto Gunther Shamus returned and rallied loyalists around the crown and turned many communist moderates against the cause with his fiery rhetoric the monarchy was restored and the country was stabalized many communists were given a pardon but leaders were deported to other continents many of the former belligerents have formed a more moderate party called the Liberal Party
Two years after the revolts in Monto occured Communists in the Republic of Stritch ousted the president in one fell swoop while he was in Savoy, Prussia for an interfederation meeting Monto, and Prussia were able to respond quickly to the threat this short war caused an event known by Prussians and NATO as the Nuclear Scare
Stritchian Nuclear Scare
The Stritch rebel leader demanded that Prussian and Montan troops leave them be and threatened Prussia with a nuclear strike, which was launched but taken down by Anti-Nuclear batteries. The SDI System of Prussia then threatened to bombard Stritch. By the morning of the 24th, SDI Units began launching EMP waves, disabling all electical devices and rendering them useless -"The thing that will cost them more money after this war is, rather than fixing buildings and streets, is to fix their burned devices"- Prussian General Haklford von Deuberg. The rebel leader then threatened to launch 500 nuclear missles to Prussia, all launched were shot down by the SDI units, and the actual number of warheads launched is unknown.
After the situation, Monto forced a ceasefire between Rebels and the Prussian-Montan Coalition. The nations, which include the Stritch Republican Loyalists, the Grand State of Monto, the Kingdom of Prussia and the Rebel Communist Stritch are negotiating a peace treaty as of 2936.
In May 2936, after news that the rebel leader was sending thousands of people to labor camps reached Konigsberg, the High King declared war on the rebel state and is preparing to invade it in a few months in a coalition with the Stritchan loyalist army and help from the western Empire of Daltona.
Montan Participation and Lucy Hills
When the Stritchian Coup occured in 2935 of late December Montan Military deployed a Special Forces unit consisting of 20 highly trained soldiers to the city of Lucy Hills on the border of Stritch and The Economic Power of Decambra in which the loyal Stritchian Army was residing in exile when word of the Labor camps reached Lucy Hills the Special Forces Group who shall remain unnamed organized the Lucy Hills populace into an army of 75,000 this army consisting mostly of infantry caused much mayhem in the north western part of rebel controlled Stritch and suffered from massive missile strkes when the rebels organized into a vast army to crush all enemy belligerents the Lucy Hills populace fought bravely incurring approximately 50,000 casualties the remaining people were evacuated to Monto to avoid the labor camps they were issued special access Visas and now reside in the Mountain cities of Monto and mainly work in the gold mines plans are in effect to return the people of Lucy Hills to their home
Royal Wars (2934-2935)
These wars were sparked by foriegn Communist support Monto declared war on 2 countrys and conducted bombing raids on many targets throughout the perpetrators countrys. No significant ground forces were landed on foriegn soil but these wars were a testament to the effectiveness of the Montan Air Forces. During the Battle of Mavouin during which air bombardment occured against miltary targets the Montan Air Force inflicted trillions of dollars of damage to critical systems and 20,000 casualties against enemy combatants while absorbing the losses of 200 airmen many of which where captured and killed by the civillian populace. This was the first major conflict in Montan history that occured outside of the Southern Fish region.
The United Kingdoms of Oceania was formed in 2931 at Constantines discretion Monto promptly joined the Union and Prussia also joined slightly later a form of government was drafted and the nations of the UKO work togethor to achieve social economic and political goals. Queen Inez from Constantine was named the first Monarch of the UKO the legislative body is located in Aqua of Monto and Political Offices and living complexes are located in Savoy, Prussia
UKO Militia (2935)
After a political activist in Constantine was shot the UKO police force was called into question this event caused early instability in the UKO the nations agreed to support the police force and higher quality arms were supplied
Green Tide (2940)
An environmentalist group that practices terrorism on January 17th terrorists loyal to the Green Tide attacked an airport in Constantine killing close to 15000 people war on terror has been declared by the UKO and every effort is being made to crush the extremists and bring peace and stability to citizens of the UKO. See The Green Tide
Internal and external relations Debalacle
Prussian and Montan Animosity has caused the possible succession of Prussia from the UKO
Olympic Games (2942)
Formed in the 2940s at the end of Queen Inezes term as Queen of the UKO see UKO Olympic Games
UKO Space Advancement (2949)
In the 2940s the Kingdom of Constantine rallied States of the UKO to push its boundarys into space this was met well by the UKO assembly and pushes to make the UKO a intergalatic power began.One of the most important milestones in the UKOs space advancement was the discovery of the planet Aires by a Constantino space mission the planet is inhabited by several intelligent humanoid civillizations most notably the Sandinians. The people on Aires are considered more advanced then the people of the UKO in many standards and trade and investigation into eachothers respective cultures is ongoing
Space Advancement by the military of the respective UKO states in also in full gear most notably the Kingdom of Prussia which has commissioned the building of five Super and Battle Cruisers which are designed to run on Solar Particles and are able to run missions throughout the heliosphere
Montan Airforce has begun research and development along with designing the beginnings of its Space fleet
Second Great War (2960)
The Second Great war began in 2960 due to strikes by the Constantino Kingdom in retaliation for a brutal invasion some years earlier the numerically overwhelming forces of Calzador initiated large offensives on Greater UKO forcing Monto to defend its Mainland borders
To the dismay of Montan Generals and Military advisors King Gunther Shamus declared his intention to defend to Mainland using conventional forces. His reasons included defending the fllanks of the Constantino Aquitaine lines and protecting large population centers in the Banderokian terriotory from assault by the brutal Calzadorians with assistance from Banderokian and Constantino ground forces defensive positions were built and manned the UKO powers had extremely advantageous tactical presence due to the terrian and maintained an impressive kill ratio but Montan forces still incurred 500,000 casualtys forcing a draft to be implemented and a long dormant weapons training and industry infrastructure to be reutilized the 500,000 casualtys were to most losses in any war since the war with Nabatto. During the counter offensives Montan naval presence was crucial to providing cover to allow an Aquitanian invasion to setup a beachhead for further assaults
Foriegn and Internal Relations Debalacle of 2943
This crisis began in 2943 when internal affairs minister Republic of Stritch accused the state of Nevrodna of illegally corressponding with the Psycho Honey Empire. Nevrodna claimed that messaging the empire was for peaceful and benign reasons only Stritch responded with sanctions against Nevrodna while encouraging other nations to participate aswell several nations levied sanctions against Nevrodna to which Nevrodna responded with levying extreme sanctions against all NATO memberes indiscriminately.
Monto encouraged nations to lift sanctions as it seemed as if the initial problem had been resolved but to no avail.
Prussia which had declared a nuetrality was indignant towards the sanctions that had been levied and responded with forceful sanctions of her own the sanctions became more and more extreme culminating in the inprisonment of NATO citizens, The Rage Massacre in which Prussian citizens slaughtered an unknown number of Nevrodnians and claimed executions of Nevrodnian citizens in Prussia
Monto was disgusted at the crimes against allied citizens and responded with an outcry of disgust and a demand that Prussia be forcefully removed from the UKO Montan citizens were evacuated from Prussia for their own safety
Prussia responded against Monto with the cutting of diplomatic relations and the banning of Montan citizens from Prussian soil for 100 years
Prussian citizens were asked not to attend the 300th Anneversary of Montan Independence from the Gongolese and the sadistic acts of the Prussian King have called into question the viablility of an absolute monarchy in Monto which was initially based off the Prussian Model.
300th Anneversary of Montan Independence (2950)On May 16 2950 Celebrations in Monto began with a 15 minute speech from Prince and Royal Representative Gunther Shamus about the Montan culture and what it means to be Montan firework displays across the country commenced and premier Soccer and Lacrosse teams began playing in stadiums against foriegn teams and admittance into the stadiums was free the spectacles continued into the night and the week but work for Montans was banned for the next three months there was much free food and drink available. Many speeches were given in the Montan capital most notably the Stritchian President and The Honorable Mr. Raul Souza 1 from Constantine. These celebrations will be a testament to Montan culture for decades to come
The Recession of 2950 (2950)
The Recession of 2950 was sparked by a massive shutting down of government infrastructure when not enough government workers were available almost 500 schools were closed along with a number of hospitals. These troubles compounded eachother and were added to by 1 trillion government debt leftover from the Royale Wars. Production all across Monto fell due to shortages of workers and other problems caused by the insufficient infrastructure. Private enterprises also took large hits due to mismanagement by CEOs. Eventually the Montan government managed to fix the infrastructure but the economy was still stagnating due to the continued burden of poorly run private corporations. The Royal Representative Gunther Shamus offered an ultimatum to the enterprises and several left causing a large spike in unemployment and welfare problems. The problem was quickly remedied by large investment from the CEO Jansen many production values increased especially in high tech fields the country of Monto was officially declared out of a recession when the GDP passed 100 billion a month in February of 2958 the government of Monto is still paying of a small debt as it is behind on supplys for the population but a large government surplus has taken hold due to maturing of public enterprises and successfully run private corporations. Increasing the GDP is still a priority and many improvements are expected to be made in fields such as recreation and industry
Death of Gunther Shamus (2962)
The Death of Gunther Shamus occured during a tour of the Montan frontline forces in Mainland Monto of Greater UKO. While large security measures were in place a large concentrated attack by ground and air forces of the Calzadorian army managed to engage the ground forces and kill the King of Monto. Due to the open terrian a withdraw was considered but denied the MIRA agents tasked with defending the king attempted to protect the king in a bunker but Gunther Shamus commanded they stand down saying "If i am to die let it be a soldiers death" He was killed after taking several bullets but his tenacity was noted by his fellow warriors and countrymen "Monto sheds tears today" says one army captain the general Boris Yeltslavin became the leader of Monto taking care of the day to day dutys of running the country until the Royal Family choose another successor in 2963
