The term “Allendea” comes from the Castellanese term “la Tierra Allende de los Montes”, the land beyond the mountains, (as viewed from Valoris, as the Soives Mountains are between Valoris and Allendea) which was shortened to “la Tierra Allende”. The term was not used after independence, when the country was named the United Provinces of Fojenica, in 1815. After the Blue Revolution of 1887, the first democratically elected government in the United Provinces had voted to change the name of the UP to the Allendean Republic, with “Allendea” being chosen as a neutral name, chosen to decentralise the country, away the Province of Fojenica; the same vote changed the country's capital to Catamia, where it still is.
Main article: History of Allendea
Tribal EraThe first recorded human settlement in Allendea is found in the flatlands of the Catamia province from about 130 thousand years ago in the San Blas caves, where there are paintings of hands, though it is theorised that humans have inhabited Allendea for 3.3 million years.
They mostly lived from animals, and had towns made of small huts. They started settling down around 12 thousand years ago, and slowly the Zuyete language drifted into various languages. The first cultures started to develop. Around 5 thousand years ago, the southern areas of Allendea were settled by the TBD, as a part of early colonisation of the area, which also included parts of Damenstrom, TA338 and Beaumontan.
Imperial EraIn the year -100, the TBD in Allendea had founded their state, the first large nation in Allendea, Capuchea. With their first army of sorts, they quickly expanded north of the coastal regions, by the year 0 they had roughly the land of the current Fojenica province. Seeing this, the Apeléézé city-state, at the time the largest Pahalan city, called for the other Pahalan city-states to join them into a large state. All had accepted, except for the city of Mbadzééwaa, which was subsequently conquered by the Capucheans in the year 13. Soon, many conflicts broke out, however the border between the Pahalo Empire and Capuchea always roughly stayed at the northern border of the current Bervoy and Cóstel provinces. During the wars, the Pahalans mostly hid in the mountains and waited for the invaders to come and then killed them. They have rarely invaded lands of Capuchea. The war ended in the year 32, after which both empires relaxed their rule and functioned as a “small government”. Not much about the following era is known since people at the time did not write.
In 1151, the Franquese colonised southern Allendea and used it as an agricultural colony. It was also used as a way of trade between the colonial cities of Valoris and Emporie la Jolie. The first Franquese city was Saint-Ezéchiel, which was the main city and commercial hub. It was the only city built by the Franquese, other settlements did exist but were built by small farmers independently and were small in size, usually 3-10 houses at the intersection of roads. The rest of “Allendea” was conquered after a treaty was signed with Ingerland, where the west of the TBD peninsula (the land which is now called Soboko) was “reserved” to the Ingerish, and the east was “reserved” to the Franquese (i.e. the Ingerish didn't colonise in the east and the Franquese didn't colonise in the west). The local indigenous groups were largely suppressed: the Pahalo were shunned into the forests, and the Capucheans were largely assimilated. However, many rural areas that were not used for agriculture were left alone, allowing indigenous people to thrive there. In 1354, the colony was officially named Fojenique after the General Armand Éloi Fojenique.
War of Fojenica and Castellanese colonisation
When word spread that there is gold in the TBD mountains in the north of the colony in 1641, Castellan attempted to buy it, but the Franquese said no, so they started an invasion, called the War of Fojenica. One year into the war, the Castellanese conquered the north coast, and Franqueterre agreed to stop the war and letting the Castellanese buy the land. In 1643, the colony of Fojenique was formally disbanded, and ceded to Castellan. They established a new colony called Gran Fojenica, a Castellanese translation of the former name. With large untapped gold resources, they were mined and sold, bringing great profit to Castellan. Cities were established along the trade route from the mines to the new ports in Fojenica and Barzona. As the influence and cities expanded, the indigenous were fought against even more. They were almost completely assimilated in the south, and in the centre, they were shunned onto the mountains. The north continued to be relatively sparse and ungoverned.
Independence and Gran Fojenica
In 1811, Allendea declared independence. A war started in 1812, however it was too expensive for Castellan, so they surrendered and left in 1815. The United Provinces of Gran Fojenica were founded as a sovereign state, and Carlos Fernandéz Valdilla was voted as the first president and built up the nation. He organised it into 17 provinces, most of which were in the South of the nation. Fojenica was selected as the centre of power.
