During the Ice Age, tribes entered the land where it's now known as Kuboia, it's believed that the area was settled 175,000 thousand years ago or earlier. In 150,000 BC, they first named the land Kuoibay named after the first Tribal Chief's middle name. after the Ice Age ended, almost all tribes left the area except for one which is the Owakoi tribe, (but it's also believed that the Khalire tribe also didn't flee from the area, which it wasn't confirmed by archaeologists) and left with only 200,000 people on the island, for the other tribes, they fled to the other islands, there were no actual civilizations on the island, except for a Chiefdom named Chiefdom of Owakoi, which it was established in 100000 BC. The chiefdom had a lot of copper, tin, bronze, steel, iron, coal and gold and had some diamonds, Lapis Lazuli, Amber, Jade, spices and oil from trading. There were evidence that they traded with the Middle East, Asia and Africa, Ancient Kuboians met the Egyptians, Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Anatolians, Chinese, Israelites, Indus Valley people, Japanese, Ancient Koreans (Goguryeo, Silla and Baekje), Southeast Asians and the Bantus in Sub-Saharan Africa during their voyages around the world except for the Americas and Europe, there were attempts by Koihotec Hkahairikama and Doesemet Hakrihaomanka to do voyages in the Americas, but all of the attempts failed and they went back.
When the very first Owahockoot was born in 500 AD. the tribes had been forcing Owls and Cockatoos to birth due to its wealthiness. By 1000 AD, there were over 5 million Owahockoots living in the island, flying everywhere in the skies. Owahockoot has became very popular in Kuboia during the Middle Ages when they spread all around the world and the population of them vigupled during a 5 years period during the early 1300's and a 25 years period during the early 1700's. During the middle ages, nothing big happened in the chiefdom except for non-native immigration to the chiefdom, which is gonna be a massive threat to the chiefdom and their national pride.
In the late 1700's, the population of the island was at 2 to 3 million people, while the population of the Owahockoot was starting to slow down in the Kuboian sub-region, Iberian Peninsula and Northwest Africa. During the 1800's, Owahockoots population is starting to decline in Western Europe and North America while the demand of it began going further up and starting to get more expensive, the increase of hunting of them is so bad that it killed 1/5 of them in the Kuboian sub-region during a 25 year span from 1810 - 1835 and people are starting black markets for the selling of Owahockoots and clothing made out of Owahockoot's feathers, the people that were behind the rise of the underground economy (black markets) in the Chiefdom of Owakoi were Holbar Ype and Habour Byo. They were executed by the Tribal Chief and the Tribal Chief also executed the supporters of the underground economies and the people that used them, due to it being a western trend, which is a threat to the tribal sovereignty and their tribal economy. As a result, the non-natives were all massacred and executed, which was planned by the tribal chief of the Chiefdom of Owakoi and stopped trading with the European powers.
1946 to 1984
After Ghost Island became Jetania in 1946, only approximately 30 people stayed in the area. Three of those people, John Kunning, Garnett Boastful and Echo Oakley, had no house to go to, and disliked the others who stayed in Jetania. They agreed to head to the north west of the country, and invent a sub-region. The name Kuboia is a combination of the trio’s names, whilst the original flag uses the three favourite colours from each of the original founders.
1984 to 1987
- Main articles: 1984 Kuboian Independence Referendum and Kuboian Independence Movement
In January 1984, then-president Joshua Stewart suggested that Kuboia becomes independent from Jetania and officially becomes its own country. Since its foundation as a sub-region, Kuboia had been supported and dictated by Jetania, and Joshua was disappointed with Derrick Harlock's "corrupt" nature.
Announced in February 1984, the Kuboian Independence Referendum took place on 13th September, 1984. The vote asked Kuboian citizens if they would like the area to become an official country, with 88% voting "Yes". After a six-month delay, Kuboia became an official country on 30th March 1987.
Late 1980s and 1990s
After Kuboia became its own country, trading with Jetania decreased drastically, and the country began to focus on producing its own goods and services.
Kuboia officially adapted the Euro on 1st January, 1991, and discontinued official use of the Jetin on 31st March that year. Also on 1st January, 1991, guns were legalised in the country.
Modern Kuboian culture started to begin during this era. Kuboian media also started to widen, with the launch of the first fully-Kuboian television channel, Vision Network, in 1988, as well as the creation of Kantasy in the early 1990s. However, media at the time was often produced cheaply or tediously. Many knockoff products (of international brands) were produced in the early 1990s.
In November 1992, the marriage age in Kuboia became sixteen years old. Beforehand, there was no marriage age. The marriage age was lowered to thirteen years old in April 1996.
The official school system in Kuboia was established in August 1996. Beforehand, schools in Kuboia operated under their own, often unorganised, system. However, a flagship school system began to be slowly established throughout the early 1990s.
A minimum wage was established in the country in June 1999.
In January 2004, Kuboia introduced a policy which involved the internet in the country switching off from 10:00p.m. to 6:00a.m. on school nights. Later that year, the policy was changed so it only affected homes with children, and parents can choose to turn it off. As of 2019, the policy is still active.
In August 2004, it became illegal in Kuboia to bring weapons into schools and other educational departments.
On 2nd January, 2006, it became illegal for a child under the age of nine to use a gun, except in extreme circumstances. That same day, it also became illegal in the country for anybody under twenty years old to marry somebody who is twelve months older or younger than them.
According to statistics, Kuboia was unaffected by the global financial crisis of 2007–2008, though the country's birth rate did drop from 2.40 in 1999 to 1.97 in 2008.
According to statistics, Kuboia was mostly unaffected by the 2019-20 coronavirus pandemic. It is believed that the decline of tourism the country suffered in the 2010s is the reason for the lack of affect.
