History

Prehistory

According to the Scrolls of Davus, the mainland of Ascot and Arran used to be occupied by a native tribes which is believed to have originated from mainland Uletha. It is believed these native Ascottians, rose in prominence in the around 500 BC, establishing a kingdom (holman kingdom) which lasted for at least until the 2nd century after Davus (124 AC), when much of the natives died out when an unknown disease spread through the nation (believed to be bird flu).

Nomadic Tribes 124-1602

There where a few tribes which survived the epidemic, they became mostly nomadic and settled in the eastern flatlands of Ascot.

Discovery of Ascot 1602

Due to the need of establishing a form of checkpoint in northern Archanta, and the need for resettlement of several Asvenists overcrowding in Ingerish colonies, the Ingerish arrived north Ascot (Arran) in 1504. At that time around 10'000'000 native Ascottians and 1200 old Holman clans occupied Ascot. A pact was signed between the Teguan clan, the largest clan at the time, and the Ingerish settlers to establish a town (Whiteport) in Ascot, making it the most prominent settlement in Arran. In the early years of colonisation, only 18’000 people; mostly Ulethans immigrated to the islands. Initially, the economy of the Holmish colony blossomed.

Asvenist Colonization 1656-1664

Between 1654-1663 bad famines ruled in Ingerland, many inhabitants emigrated to places like Khaiwoon or Quentinsburgh. At that time the population of Ascot existed of not more than 18'000 inhabitants, Whiteport itself existed of a few cottages and the Citadells. King Earnest I was a strong adversary of the polytheistic religion of the Asvenists. He decided to resettle the Asvenists to Ascot in 1656. Under the faith to escape the hunger they were let themselves resettle. Between 1656 and 1664, 600'000 Asvenists immigrated to Ascot. Nevertheless, the immigrants had to starve in Ascot further, the economy was laid out for only 18'000 people, there were only a few cattle farms and the water supply was miserable.

Ascottish Femines 1664-1677

Tensions between Colonists and the natives rose over the lack of resources until the Ingerish government decided to eliminate a lot the remaining natives. Most of the natives fled to the highlands and mountain regions of south and west Ascot, but a lot of the Clans were eliminated by the the Ingerish Gouvernement. However, the land problem has not been settled over the discovery that Ascot has plenty of arable land for farming; a brief war started in 1677 between Ulethan businessmen over competing land uses. The war was settled when the government took ownership over all the land in Ascot, though this was met with some opposition from the supposed landowners. Agriculture became the next major sector of the Ingerish colony.

great earthquake of 1717

A major earthquake on the island in 1717 undermined the economy, killing 20'000 People. but the Adventist Community had no possibility to emigrate from Ascot, because the “persecution of Asvenists” started in many Christian countries.

Franquese Ascot 1732-1789

In the 1730s the Franquese have settled on the northwestern parts of Ascot, which became Franquese Ascot in 1748 when the Ingerish sold a part of the land for only 20,000$ to promote the ascottish economy after the great earthquake. Over increasing trade in Ascot, the Ingerish meanwhile have decided to rebuy Franquese Ascot in 1789. But unfortunately the government had not enough money to do so. Gouverneur Henry Cornwall decided to organize the Bonfire Night. In the Night from the 7. To the 8. July the assault on the City of Plouharnel (today Platfort) take place, over 35’000 Franquese Ascottish people died in that Night. The Franquese Government decided to cut all commercial contracts between the Ingerish and the Franquese Kingdom. A war against the Ingerish wasn’t a option because the Ingerish Navy was much more developed than the Franquese one.

Overthrow of the Kingdom 1933-1937

Because of the heavy immigration to [[Ascot] the government splitted in two big parts in the 1930s, the conservatives and liberal Asvenists. The really open minded and liberal Primus Ryon Harrison died at a Terror Attack in 1933, where the whole Palace of Asvenism burned down. A day later 5 Conservative Asvenists confessed that Attack and were arrested. Primus Clark Clover took power 3 months after the attack on the Palace, supported by some Communists. Clover gaind a lot of new party members with his Speeches. He promised to make the Asvenist Religion great again! Between 1933 and 1937 the NAP rose from 22‘000 to over 1 million members. 1937 White mobs of approximately 500–1000 people, instigated by the rumor of an assault of a white family and subsequent minor riot, armed themselves and attacked a black neighborhood in Hamelton (north Ascot) known as the Black district of Ascot. The riot killed 200–350 people and destroyed more than 1,500 homes and hundreds of businesses, leaving over 15,000 people homeless.

In faith that the whole royal family was murderd in that disaster, Primus Clark Clover gaind Power, He founded a whole new government the „old Holmic Empire“ in 1938.

Ascottian Spring 1958

In the next 26 years, Ascot was ruled under a communist regime, while still allowing religion in the state. Its isolationist regime, however, resulted in a lack of social and economic development. The poor economic conditions resulted in the Ascottian Spring in 1958, which was brutally suppressed. About 200 protestors were killed, and 2,000 people were arrested. However, in response to the attempted revolution, Clark Clover resigned and was taken over by the vice Primus Jonas Clifford. The government of Ascot, under the new government, implemented reforms for the general improvement of the economy, through the improvement of worker's conditions and opening up its ports for trade, but the opening was limited to only certain ships. In 1960, Ascot ran into foreign debt over mismanagement of finances and decrease in agricultural production when the lands of Ascot began to lose its fertility. A protest broke out in October that year over the fact that the government arrested key Asvenist pastor Austin Thomas, who urged that Ascot 'should no longer rely on agriculture to survive. The protests accumulated into a riot when the soldiers reportedly killed 78 protestors in front of the Parliament. The soldiers, being overpowered by the rebellion, decided to join the masses. The Primus Jonas Clifford tried to flee, but Viveltian forces managed to capture him and send him back to Ascot, where he voluntarily resigned in December. By this time, the communists have lost power in November after the protests, creating a political vacuum in Ascot. The National Ascot Front, supported by Vilvetia, formed a government in 1963 under Primus Preston Cause and King Victor II the grandson of King Leopold II.

modern Ascot

Today Ascot is a really interesting location for companies from all over the world. There are a lot of reasons why it became such a economical giant. For one thing, the capital is well positioned in terms of its time zone between the giant economies of the west and the Far East. That’s hugely advantageous in terms of Ascot’s potential as a commercial hub. Language is also a factor. Clearly Ingerish business leaders are attracted to Ascot because ingerish is the common language. But there are other factors too.
