The Súdwerstæó Empire was a former soverign state from 1678 to 1918, when it was replaced by the Republic of Súdwerstæóich following the 1918 referendum to abolish the monarchy. It was established following the Treaty of Piæótats in 1678 in order to end the Súdwerstæó Civil War.
Establishment of the Súdwerstæó Empire (1678)
In 1678, the war between the kingdoms of Súd- and Werstæóich came to a close after the Súdtæó army captured the Werstæó capital of Abilæž-Straców on February 20, 1678. As a result, Werstæóich was annexed into the kingdom and was recognised as a providence. Soon after, the new constitution was created that was supposed to make the providences of Súdwerstæóich equal in power, but the reality was that Werstæóich was technically a puppet state. For quite a while, protests against the new government were not uncommon in the Werstæó providence and most of them lasted until the start of World War I. This led to oppression by the Werstæóvi which has been ordered by Giován I, who had a distasteful opinion of them.
Súdwerstæóich during World War I (1908-1918)
Like most countries in the United Noobian Nations, Súdwerstæóich was neutral during World War One since they were busy fighting the new neo-Avtouaist regimes of Stænúrothge and Motepflaisha. However, due to the nationalist uprisings that the Werstæóvi and Pechalsalavians created, it crippled their resources. Eventually, the government declared neutrality in 1916 in order to prioritize their militaristic wrath on the nationalist militias.
