It is officially known as Holy Pearler Federal Monarchorepublic. The official languages are Pearler, Japanese and English. (The Pearlers have their own version of English language).
Archaic human presence in Pearl by at least 800,000 years ago.
Ancient Edison/Ancient Pearl - 9th Century BC to 13 years AD
The Pearler version of edison comes from a word from Latin language, edisonius/edisonus, which it's origin is the Ancient Greek "έθΐσονής/έθΐζόνις" (ethisones/ethizonis), coming from ethizonyskos, an Ancient Pearler (which is based on Doric and Epic Greek languages) word meaning 'our land'. (ethi zonyskos). It is alternatively called "erdyzionyz", "erthysunuzk", "etizanke", "ethornzonk", "ethanzonka", "endohzynk" or "ethinzenke".
There were at least seventeen Edisoni tribes, twelve of them have their own city-states or village-states, most of them later survived into Medieval Pearl. Most known tribes were Ethiz, Zonys (from the Ancient Pearler word zonyks, zonagaz or sonkes, meaning neighbor), Attakos (from atakes or athikos, meaning mountains), Xevix (meaning home) and Axat (from axatvos, meaning beach).
The Makos-Everik War is earliest documented war of the ancient Edisoni period. It was fought between the city-states and a few tribes. Both cities seem to have suffered a decline as result of the long war, though Makos was the nominal victor.
By the 9th century BC several cities had emerged as dominant in Edisoni affairs: Ethiz, Makos, Xevix, Axat, Zonys and Attakos
The first Greek colonies in Ancient Edison were founded in the eighth century BC.
The only Persian city in Edison, founded by King Darius the Great (r. 522–486 BC) is Eli. And the only Celtic city is Ke, founded in 753 BC.
According to Aytak, the Edisonis also had to contribute a small contingent to Xerxes' invasion of Greece in 480 BC.
Following the death of Eliotizk I in 398 BC, Aztakyv assumed authority over the southern part of Edisonusko, ruling from the city of Kvikuz. During the reign of Eliotizk I, the Edisonusko empire, which had been in a state of constant civil war since 354 BC, began to unravel.

Medieval Pearl/Medieval Edison - 753 to 1459

NOTE FROM THE OWNER: I am NOT trying to justify the actions of the Imperial Japan. I am no Japanophile, just interested in Alternative History.
After Japanese-Ottoman Wars, Imperial Japan won, and taking western part of Constantinople (where is Edison Pearl's capital was), and renamed it to New Edo, during the rule, many soldiers come there. Meanwhile, Pearler poets and revolutionists tried to revive Pearler language and culture for home and personal uses. They have an agreement with the Imperial Japanese government to use home language and culture in conjunction with the Japanese culture and language, and Shintoism under one condition, to ban anything from Ottoman and Arabic origins, otherwise they would take away the agreement in case of breaching. The Edisoni people had tired of being oppressed by the Ottomans and tried to fought back, so one-third of them agreed almost without a second thought. Several of those who did not agree have fled to Western Europe.
There, however are two opposition groups that used violent tactics against the Japanese and some Edisoni people (resulting in brutal and inhumane defense against them), one is Kazoxiel, which some Edisoni people still wanted an independent nation instead of the Japanese colonzation of Edison, the other one was Al-Allah, the Edisoni group who want Edison to be returned to the Ottoman Empire. Since then, the European colony of Imperial Japan is under constant threat and pressure from these two groups and the Ottomans themselves, many uprisings and conflicts, resulting in hundreds of deaths. For example there is an another series of the Japanese-Ottoman wars, made of four wars, one is during 1872-1875, second one is from 1892-1902, the third one is from 1905-1909 and the final one is from 1912-1914. During World War Two, many German and Hungarian diplomats trade weapons with the colony, some even arrive in the said colony to work for the government's diplomacy. Some poets learn German and have written their dictionary of the German language. Thus, the German language is introduced to Seiko-Edison only for people, who work very hard. In later years of World War II, the German and Hungarian languages become more widespread.
For Sino-Japanese wars, the two groups merge into one, the Xotorox people, some Korean and Chinese people join the group to resist the rule. During the years of 1942-1944, Turkey tried to remain neutral, but is invaded and occupied by the Japanese forces, and backed up by the Axis. The Allies attempt to restore Turkey constantly untill the last day of the war. (Eventually, the Allies have occupied the colony not very long after Imperial Japan surrendered due to atomic bombs dropped in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, roughly a month after).
Modern Pearlers did criticize the negative, violent actions not only of Imperial Japan and Ottoman Empire, but also some of the Allies, such as the early Soviet Union (for the dictatorship) and the United States (for the racism against blacks in the South, though later black people granted the same rights as other races).
Modern Pearlers have also stated that this period was very complicated.
British and Soviet Occupation and Influences - 1945 to 1947
The Asian side of Edison is occupied by the Soviet Union, while the European side is occupied by United Kingdom and the United States of America. There
During this period, many uprisings have happen, resulting in declaring of independence of several countries, none of which last after early 1950s, such as Xevixurox, Eerik and Dathaskos.
Early Modern Pearl - 1947 to 1992
Edison/Seiko declared independence in May 13 1947 as Holy Pearler Federal Monarchorepublic. There are people who wanted Pearl as a monarchy like that of Japan, however there are people who oppose it, they want Pearl to be a republic like most of European countries. Some of whom pioneer the concept of mixture of the monarchy and republic using multinationality, confederalism and federalism as a base. The Pearlers have started all over again, restoring and repairing their relationships with several countries, such as France, United Kingdom, Soviet Union, Japan, Egypt, Italy, Germany, Finland, Spain and Switzerland. In 1949, Pearl became a member of the United Nations.
The Pigeon War went from 1956 to 1957,
The difficulties facing farmers are increased by the arrival of as many as 300,000 crows and 500,000 pigeons causing damages to trees, flowers and crops.The pideons and crows consume and spoil the plants, as well as leaving large gaps in fences where rabbits and rats can enter and cause further problems. Furthermore, this cause the hyenas to enter and attack farmers themselves, their cows and horses, causing the police and pitbulls to counterattack to both hyenas and each other, resulting in swarming mosquitoes. In addition to this, several deaths of snakebites have been reported, followed by a virus (by the spreading Johos virus by mosquitoes) outbreak, making the crime rate raising higher. Military involvement was due to begin in May 1956. The 'war' is conducted under the command of Azkayak Hiroyuki, who want all of crows, mosquitos, rats and pigeons to be eradicated. As a result of this 'war', over thousands of crows and pigeons are killed, only two soldiers died. The bounty system that have been instigated in 1957 was continued, and this has been proven to be effective: 67,689 bounties are claimed over a month period in 1958.
In 1956, the Pearlers have claimed a small territory in Antarctica, named Pearler Antarctic Province. It is administered by the Pearler Division of Antarctican Lands.
In 1959, the Pearlers have colonized the southeastern part of Atlantis (later declared independence as Maxon in 1997 after Sino-Pearler Wars), an island in North pole near Norway (later declared independence as Bjørilsk Đåþänna/Daþensk in 1985) and an island near Africa (independent as Dkolx in 1989).
The Sino-Pearler wars, which is caused by assassination of the president
Pearl joined the NATO and the European Union in December 3 1982.
Misandry Wars - 1992 to 1997
The first misandry war have begun in September 3 1992 by radical feminism-based terrorist group SCUM APZ cresting airstrikes against the Saudi embassy building and a Kadishen Films headquarter in Kadishen. A burning church was occured by the same group later that day by as an arson. SCUM claimed their territory in Bogorats and bombed many buildings there. The Saudi government quickly react to the attack and begin millitary intervention in the war.
Since the Pearlers already are dealing with this group and it's history of arsons, airstrikes, terrorist attacks, troop losses, they are forced by NATO do take part in another devastating millitary conflict, the Yugoslav wars. The sub-countries barely agreed with each other, sub-governments such as Odrinska, Kadishen and Tahoma do not want to interfere with the Yugoslav wars, while others already send troops and help aids to Croatia and Slovenia, some are siding with Yugoslavia, such as Datheskos.
Pearler sub-governments threaten NATO for them to leave the military organization if they continue to force them to fight in a foreign conflicts against their own will.
The war ended in evening of November 12 1997, declaring the defeat of the terrorist group SCUM.
