10000 BC Settlers on the peninsula had evolved into two distinct ethnic groups known as the Co Xua, the predecessors of the Kue, and the Neegs.
400 BC The Neegs established the Zhin/Zuchaw (致賢) Kingdom, exerting firm control over modern western Cinasia and parts of Kaosha The Kue established the So Tai Kingdom in the northern half of the peninsula
Conflicts erupt between the Zuchaws and Kue along their disputed frontier. Additionally, they vied for influence over the minority tribes residing in the mountainous and eastern coastal regions of the peninsula.
200 AD The Fu Dynasty is established The So Tai Kingdom met its demise during the Third Neeg–Kue War with the defeat of the Kue lords. The emerging Bai Fu Dynasty supported the Zuchaws by providing their forces and equipment.
224 The Qiang Dynasty is established Following the collapse of the Fu Dynasty, the new Zuchaw King rebelled against the succeeding Qiang Dynasty The Qiang backed the restoration of the Kue Kingdom, known as the Yen (安) Dynasty, resulting in the overthrow of the Zuchaws. The Yen gained firmly in control of the entire peninsula and its sea routes, though it remained under the overlordship of the Bai Empire.
310 The Shi Dynasty is established
488 The Meng Dynasty is established
  • The Meng Dynasty attempted to invade the Kue over a dispute regarding trade rights. However, the Kue successfully repelled these invasions.
  • In the latter half of the century, internal strife within the Kue court weakened its power, ultimately leading to its downfall.
  • Following the collapse of the Yen Dynasty, the peninsula plunged into a period of civil war
600 Kue warlord Ly Lac emerged to restore the Kue Kingdom and proclaimed the Hoai Dynasty
700 During the 8th to 10th centuries, the Kue expanded its territory to the north of the Muinon Peninsula and annexed several Bai states under its control. The Bai and Kue became intertwined for subsequent centuries through intermarriages between the Bai and Kue princes and princesses. Bai reached its zenith in the Qiang Dynasty (name to be changed) in 700 AD and dominated a huge portion of Archanta Minor, thanks to Hui the Conqueror. However, the large Empire was ungovernable, and with his two sons competing for the throne, Qiang Emperor Taiji decided to split the Empire into two. Hence, the Qiang Empire became known as the Northern Qiang and Southern Qiang. Northern Qiang, however, soon collapsed due to internal conflicts, including economic instability and political corruption, in addition to rebellions by the Kyawals, Neeg, Kue, Grinzian and Nakah people. On the other hand, Southern Qiang survived due to strong leadership, cultural homogeneity and its ability to withstand rebellions. The Southern Qiang would eventually transition into the [] kingdom.
807 Meng Dynasty collapses, Bai fragmented into numerous states. About 80 states emerged during this period, though many of them were vassals of the ten larger and more influential states: Deng, Gong, Huan, Mei, Pang, Sheng, Song, Sun, Wang and Yuan.
1149 First Bai Confederacy established The balance of power shifted in the 12th century AD when the Bai states unified under the First Bai Dynasty, resulting in the Kue assuming a semi-autonomous vassal status and becoming a compulsory ally of the Bai rulers.
  • As the First Bai Dynasty's influence waned, the Hoai Vuas of the Kue initiated reforms aimed at reducing their economic reliance on the Bai and addressing social issues within their own kingdom.
  • Nevertheless, rampant corruption and internal power struggles hindered the effectiveness of these measures, leading to an economic breakdown within the Hoai Dynasty when the First Bai Dynasty collapsed
1327 Kyawal-kaws overwhelmed Bai forces and established the Suo Dynasty
1452 Suo forces genocided the Neeg people during the Mui campaign The later years of the Hoai Dynasty were marked by rebellions and frequent incursions by Suo warlords, ultimately culminating in the annexation of the Kue territories during the Mui Campaign and the Treaty of Phong Thinh.
1500s Bai Muinon:
  • Following the Suo annexation, a significant influx of Bai settlers arrived on the peninsula, assuming roles as soldiers, civil servants, construction workers and traders.
  • By 1527, the Bai settlers had outnumbered the native population by at least threefold.
  • Rebels fleeing from Suo forces in the aftermath of the failed White Dragon Rebellion found sanctuary in the peninsula. The relatively remote and rugged terrain of the region became a hotbed for rebel activities which posed challenges to both the Suo forces and the emerging Ulethan settlements.
  • With the Suo Empire focusing its efforts on other territories and domestic challenges, Suo's interest over the region diminished.
  • During this time, Ulethan traders, who recognized the strategic and economic potential of the peninsula, seized the opportunity to engage in trade in the region.
  • Lentian and Castellanese merchants found several colonies on Fayaan's west coast
  • 1671: Suo Dynasty collapses, Lin Dynasty established through the Mai coup
  • In 1623, the Bai rebels proclaimed the establishment of the Yuet Dynasty
  • Ingerish protectorates established
  • The Yuet ceded territory that would later be known as Fayaan to the Ingerish, Lentians and Castellanese colonial powers.
  • Peninsula War erupts between the Yuet and Lin as they competed to be successors of the Suo Dynasty
  • The Yuet retain control of the peninsula under the protection of the Ingerish, Castellanese and Lentians and the support of the Kue lords
  • The Lin continued to rule over the Bai region with the support of the Franquese and Kalmish.
1700s The Kaoshan region was annexed under Kalmish control During the 18th century, the Yuet Dynasty began to exploit the benefits of foreign trade. It gradually implemented reforms that introduced Ulethan political, judicial, and military institutions aimed at modernizing and consolidating the Yuet government.
  • 1755-1765: independence war of the northern colonies

  • Bai continues to industralise and modernised during this era
  • Workers’ strikes and local rebellions plagued the Empire in the late 19th century, which led to the economic stagnation of the Empire.
Kaoshan Independence movement
  • Kue Awakening: Aimed to assert the Kue identity and challenge the Bai elitism that had long dominated the region. In response, the Yuet implemented policies to suppress the Kue nationalist movement.
  • Towards the end of the 19th century, the Yuet Dynasty, faced with increasing pressure and growing indifference towards governance, initiated gradual reforms to transition the kingdom into a constitutional monarchy. The Yuet Advisory Council was established, allowing elected representatives to contribute to the governance of the country.
First Republic (1801-1924)
  • 1801: some (northern) colonies unite in the Confederate Union of North Munion
  • 1806: the confederation changes name to Union of the Colonies of Fayaan
  • 1823-1831: the remaining Fayaan colonies join the union
  • 1861: eastern Fayaan is incorporated as separate states
  • 1868: Fayaan City is founded as capital
1900s The lack of meaningful reforms also led to the rise of political radicals – the far-right fascists and the far-left communists – in the early 20th century Widespread protests in the 1900s led to the overthrowing of the Yuet Kingdom and the establishment of the Cinasian Republic through the Five Powered Revolution on 2 July 1912. Fayaan faces corruption and economic crisis
  • 1910: Fascist leader Yu Shanliu rose to power as Chancellor
  • 1916: Yu was forced to resign upon the mysterious death of the Jinlong Emperor

  • Shortly afterwards, the Kuehong Free State transformed into a communist state through the 31st October Movement that year.
1930s War of Fellow Brothers
  • Fascist forces began to invade Kanglapo through Operation Honghua on 22 June 1932, beginning the War of Fellow Brothers.
  • While initially successful in its campaign, to the point when the forces surrounded Nandacheongfu by the end of the year, the invasion stalled as Kanglapo cut off supply lines to the Fascist forces.
  • The Fascists were forced to retreat to pre-war lines. Kanglapo proceeded to openly assist the Alliance in ousting the Fascist regime, sending its forces that captured the southern border regions.
  • With the rise of Chen Yijing as commander in 1936, the Alliance, previously fractured with internal strife, was able to unite and coordinate the resistance movement.
