The name Conabaras derives from the native name of the Kanwabra tribe, which called themselves Kwnaruba, later misheard by Nanerat colonists as Caunabera, which with time transformed into Conabaras. The name Kwnaruba means People of the Coast (Kwnow - Coast, Ruba - People of, with the suffix '-a' meaning "of")
In Castellan, the name for Conabaras is Canabaras, and in the native language of the Nalassan people Conabaras is called Tingura, which means Greater Island (in contrast with Habaus Island, which is where the Nalassan people probably come from).
Main Article: History of Conabaras
Pre-Colonial PeriodDuring 2000BC to 1000BC a tribe called Mtruyt flourished near the southern coast, and many archaeological evidences show that the tribe was more developed than the other tribes in the area. The tribe still
Their winning streak wasn't long, since in 45BC Clilt would split into 20 other tribes, and each held a memory of Clilt. During year 60 to year 180 the war period occurred, with half of the tribes being at war with each other. They started using the same techniques of acid on spears, and they even managed to develop a battle log that automatically throws acid from it's sides. Most of the technology was sadly lost, and in the year 180 the tribes stopped fighting, so in 540 it was finally settled with the Mulego, Nanedi and Ryturu. They all existed near Nalassa bay and Cubbun islands, and at the end many other tribes started rising, like Ngeyuni, Mbrede and Fulasui. In 1459, Nanerat colonialists came to Conabaran lands, starting to take most of what was their's.
Colonial Period and Establishment (1459-1995)Nanerat began establishing colonies, some of them being Conerto and Manasa, but the important one was Conabaras, located at where Nalassa is today. Conabaras tried to revolt numerous times, one being in 1604, and one in 1745. Old Nalassa was an important location during the founding of the colony, and later during the War of Reranes. Reranes was a tribe that while scavenging found the new weapons of
A report found by the general Kenos Baritay, a general from Conabaras, says "The war was difficult for all of us. We all wanted to see those bloody Reraneans suffer, and though we had no progress, we started finally to field landships, a new invention developed by the finest of Conabaran inventors. We fear they will somehow manage to steal those landships, so this time we built also garages, for keeping landships, and each garage is located near two guard towers."
The war was very hard to maintain, and after 8 years, all of the Nanerat weapons reached, however somehow Rerant developers found a way to steal the technology and blueprints for an even more advanced landship, "Cannon-car", later changed to tank. Most of the cities built by Nanerat, Conerto and Conabaras were either razed, sacked or destroyed. It left Conabaras with no cities, and no government. Conerto and Manasa basically were destroyed too, however these people migrated to other lands, becoming tribes to this day. It was all like so up to 1965.
Declaration of Independence (1968-1995)
The first hint of a civilization in Conabaran territory during the 1960s was when a group of explorers reached the Nalassa ruins, and dug it out. The digging is still incomplete, however archeologists suspect that there was a Ghoyt in the city; an tank garage disguised to a temple.
A group of mariners later went to explore the sea, and they discovered a group of islands that were unaware of the world's existence. As stated by mariner Colon Bastier, "This island is a house for at least 60 tribes, while the other islands house together 22 other tribes. These islands were named Sanelta islands because Sanelta means in Kouqon "Tropical Heaven", and Kouqon was the first tribe found. Later on some cities were established, some of them being Oporto Blanco, Nuevo Maladas, and Melasat-Pangual. The tribes were assimilated, and a wave of immigrants reached these islands to explore their splendor. At the end, the population reached 18,000 people, and after waves of Reranean terrorist attacks, Saneltans demanded independence from Nanerat, however Nanerat fell entirely the year after. Sanelta started writing a constitution and just like so Sanelta gained independence, with the terrorists leaving, and Sanelta decided to keep the past heritage, adopting the name Conabaras, and angering the local tribes but especially Reranes.
Modern Days (1995-2017)
In 17th December 1995 Sanelta adopted the Conabaran culture, and on April of 1998 Nalassa was starting to be rebuilt. After a war with the tribe of Munalau, it has been assimilated, and as of 2000 many coastal cities have begun construction. In October of 2003 a hurricane struck the Sanelta Islands and forced Nalassa to be the capital. The Sanelta Islands were completely rebuilt but Nalassa remained the capital. By 2006, The coastal cities were settled and population began increasing, and from 23,000 people the population arose up to 523,000 people by the 2010 Census, an increase of 500,000 people. In 2013 Nalassa has stopped building, and the old city was recovered. Cities like Oreno and Nanos were built in the area along Nalassa.
Geography and Climate
Conabaras is an island nation located on the Continent of Tarephia. It is composed of 6 provinces, Nalassa, Ostour, Noria, Alira, Bahia Canabara, El Occidente and 2 territories, them being Terra Blanca and Nulo Oceania. The colonization happened mainly inside, and thus there are a few cities to the north except Noria, Garanda and Thadra, which are the only cities with a population above 50,000. The west is mainly rural, while the south-east is very urbanized, housing the second largest city, Bahia Canabara.
The climates vary, with the western side of the country has very high temperatures, reaching 40 Degrees (Celsius) while in the winters they almost don't change. The islands and most of the southern coast have rather cool temperatures, and rainy winters, with rarely expected snow, and is considered to have a tropical climate. The east coast features a mix of sub-tropic and humid climate, with four seasons and often winters last longer. Temperatures in the north-west and the center can reach up to 45 degrees in the Summer, and they peaked at 51 degrees Celsius in 1927. During winters the temperature does not usually fall below 25 degrees, and thus rain is extremely rare, making Conabaras one of the driest countries in the world.
Conabaras is rich in resources, the most of them are resources that haven't been found. Resources include Iron, Gold, Jewelry, and other metals. Conabaras is also rich in Textile and Opium, which are traded to the world. The west is mainly desert, with the southern coast somewhat humid, filled with few jungles, depending on the area, and is a beach near the coast. Conabaras is also known for it's islands, with Conabaras having many groups of islands. The first group, Tropicara, is located at the south. Though barely inhabited, even by local tribes, this area is known for it's calm beaches and for the oil that is extracted by huge numbers. The second group is Sanelta Islands, the smallest archipelago out of all, known for it's tribal preservation, and for it's peaceful seas, which Sanelta Islands gained the "peaceful islands" motto. The third group is on the north, Named Orineta Islands, which includes Habaus island, the main island of this archipelago. Those islands are very highly populated, with 6% of the total Conabaran population residing on these islands.
As of 2016, according to the Conabaran Statistics Bureau, the population was 728,400 people, whom 93% define themselves as Conabaran, while the rest are Mulego, Nanedi, Ryturui and Feselteri. The population was boosted greatly after Nalassa was built, with an increase of 120% from the original. It grew by December to 154,000 people. The population is notably diverse, with 85 different groups of tribes, mainly located inlands or in the archipelagos. The desert is barely inhabited, with only 0.04% of the Conabaran population living there.
Conabaras mainly has one language, Conabaran, though many tribal or local languages include Mulego, Ngelubo, Manane, Jeredo and Nanedi. After the drastic immigration wave, Ngelubo was for some reason increased by amount of speakers, and this language is a mixture of Conabaran with a Mulego dialect, and some words from Nanedi. The Conabaran language was mainly influenced by the Castellanese language.
Most Conabarans are atheist, however a slight minority believes in the Conabaran Church, with Pagan religions practiced mainly by local tribes. The religion didn't manage to spread to Conabaras, as the colonies followed some tribal ways.
Many cities have a hospital or at least a daily service, and in schools teachers teach about health, and what food to eat. Most food however is exported, and for the same reason 54.5% of the population is obese. Alcohol and hard drugs is prohibited for use, but medical use is allowed. The Conabaran Statistics Bureau states that for every 1,000 people there are 35 doctors.
The only current schools are located in Nalassa and Oporto Blanco, so out of the children population (-18) only 42% learn in schools, however almost everyone know how to read and write since learning books are mandatory to be bought, and the government gives refund on the purchase, depending on the place of purchase. The Nalassan University is the biggest university in Conabaras, and all of the students, coming from Sanelta Islands and the northern tribes come to learn in this university.
Few Books were written, and many however were accounted for the Conabaran national library, those include "Mancalebo" (Adventures of the Desert) and "Trutaden" (Seafarers).
Out of the modern music of Conabaras, there is a drastic difference between Conabaran music and Tribal music. The modern Conabaran music adapted an eastern style mixed with tribal music, while the tribal music is just something with drums, though their drums are carefully worked on. Many compositors are known for being tribal, and they all make modern music, like the song "Chara Magnuana".
At soccer, Conabaras hosts every year the Conabaran La Copa Prima, with 22 teams competing, the best being Nguebo Lanco. Conabaras also has championships in Basketball, Football, Rugby and Handball, though Handball and Football aren't played so often. It often holds tournaments in chess and checkers. The biggest stadium in Conabaras is Estadio Masivo, with a capacity of 75,000 people. The games of any tournaments are still possible to play, they're simply being played in Sanelta Islands, in local stadiums or open fields. It is important to note that Conabaras is also good at martial arts, with tournaments being held.
The Conabaran military is rather small in comparison to other powers, and it consists of a small amount of soldiers, 2 veichles and 1 bomber.
