Etymology

History

The Maurician Republics remained largely uninhabited until the establishment of several semi-independent colonies, or patroonships, during the 1620s. New Amsterdam was founded in 1631 as a military stronghold and trading hub. The main idea behind its founding however was to provide the colonies with a central government and promote coordination between the patroonships.

Most of the current coastline was claimed during the 1630s and 1640s by the creation of a network of coastal and upriver forts, although serious territorial expansion would not start until the late 1670s, when increasing rivalry among the colonial powers caused a series of major changes in colonial policy.

The Federation won its independence between 1801 and 1814, following a series of military conflicts between the Maurician colonists, the mother country and neighboring Naobania, in which the Maurician colonist recieved sigificant moral and material support from the kingdom of Forrintia.

Isolationist policies kept the country largely isolated during the the 19th century, when the federal government was mostly focused on colonizing and developing the uninhabited hinterland.
