Founded in 1927, it is a fusion of many nation states on the island (the last one joining in 1950). A predominantly conservative country, the CPC (Conservative Party of Corcello) has ruled the country for over 75 years winning a majority government every election since 1943. The capital and largest city is San Giorgio which is also the financial and economical center of the country.


History

Colony of Corcum (34-1400)

Corcum was the name that Ispelia gave to the island of Corcello. Ispelian settlers arrived on the island in 34 A.D and colonised of what is known as Bestrina today. The Ispelians worked their way down the archipelago founding, San Giorgio in 100 A.D, Capo Boretti in 87 A.D, Boca in 200 A.D and Arestopolli in 203 A.D. The Ispelians exploited the iron and coal deposits in the historical Norica Pass near Bestrina (now a national monument).

The Ispelians built a dozen forts along the Coast of St-Paul's Bay Baia di San Paolo making San Giorgio the most fortified and protected city in the Kapsian Sea Sea. The reason for this is that San Giorgio became one of the most populated and richest city in the Ispelian Empire due to its abundant ore deposits. To this day Corcello has one of the worlds largest Diamond, Gold and Oil reserves.

The first trans-island road was parallel to the M-1 of today and passed through the Binestri Mountain range which splits the island in 2. It was called Trotums Road Strada di Trotum named after Corcum's governor Trotum (89-160).

Throughout its 1300 year existence the Colony of Corcum accepted over 300 000 settlers. By early 1003 the Ispelian colonists became increasingly more nationalist calling themselves Corcellans Corcellani. They received self-governing status in 1111 and elected a Prime Minister. This was the first political system in Corcello.

In 1398 the Corcellans were tired of preferential tariffs and unfair trade so the Corcellan's peacefully broke away from the Ispelian Empire.

The First Republic of Corcello (La Prima Republicca de Corcello) (1400-1658)

The Corcellans founded the First Republic of Corcello a constitutional monarchy in which the prominent family the Cabernardi's came into power as the royal family.

The Truppa Regime and the Corcellan Empire (1658-1890)

In 1658 the people were tired of political deadlock between the Conservatives and the Labor party. Giovanni Truppa the General of the Corcellan army gathered troops and stormed the Presidential Palace in San Giorgio and instilled the Truppist Republic of Corcello or the Second Republic. His family ruled Corcello as a one-party state for over 200 years. The regime was able to occupy large parts of Reeland and UL078 until the civil war broke out in 1890.

The Corcellan Empire occupied over 500000 km2 of land and the Corcello Navy became the best navy in the Kaspian Sea

The Civil War and the Establishment of the 3rd Corcellan Republic (1890-1905)

In 1888 a man by the name of Vittorio Valporosa rose to the throne after he was appointed Vice President of the Truppist Republic of Corcello. He saw the amount of corruption that was being performed in Truppa's administration so he decided to gather troops to kick Truppa out of his office.

Valporosa secretely gathered more than 100,000 troops or 20% of Corcello's military. On the 23rd August 1890 the first shots were fired in Capo Boretti initiating what would be the bloodiest wars in Corcellan history.

Valporosa's troops were able to secure Capo Boretti, Rentoni and Bestrina in a span of 5 months. They then proceeded down to Boca and Arestopolli respectively until both brigades unified and met at Monestri. The biggest fighting took place in San Giorgio. They mortared and bombed San Giorgio for 5 weeks day in and day out. Destroying 3/4 quarters of the city and killing half the population. The Nationalist Army marched into San Giorgio March 6th, 1891. Guerilla warfare plagued the Bestrina mountain range for 5 years until the Nationalists marched up to the border with Chester. Luigi Truppa was executed in Forto San Michele on March 18th, 1896.

Valporosa became President and ensured that all civil liberties will be respected and he created 3rd Republic a much more liberal successor to the Truppa Regime. All things were doing great: A railway linking the prosperous north to the poor south was created, the mining sector was booming, healthcare was free and civil liberties were on the rise. It become one of the fastest growing economies in the world rebounding from it's 2 decade long recession back in the 1880s. On July 5th 1909 Valporosa made a quick and unprecedented decision to nationalize all assets and crack down on censurship. People protested for months only to be met with the military firing upon them. General Maltenerra launched a coup to depose Valporosa.

Instability, Coup d'Etat and 4th Corcellan Republic (1905-1930)

Valporosa was outsted after he decided to nationalise all private companies and own all assets of its citizens. The Conservative Faction stormed the Presidential Palace and arrested Valporosa. He put to death on an attempt to re-institute the Truppa Regime. After the Coup d'Etat, many cities like Rentoni and Capo Boretti seceded from the Republic becoming self governing city-states. Maltenerra was chosen to govern the country until the election in 1910. He won in a landslide election and pledges to unite the country once again.

In 1915 he introduced the National Policy La Politica Nazionale in which its goal was to annex the seceded city-states under the pledge that there would be an industrial boom. In 1922 San Giorgio's GDP increased by 300% due to this policy.

By early 1922 Capo Boretti raised the interest of rejoining the Republic. In 1925 Corcello, Capo Boretti, Rentoni and Bestrina reached an agreement that all their government offices were to be changed according to the Corcellan policy. In 1927 the whole island was united once again under the 60 year old President Maltenerra. Chester was still occupied by Midistland and was a heavy fortified city in which many native Corcellan's have been occupied by the Midistlans. He ruled the country with an Iron fist until his death in 1944.

Chester and the Modern Corcellan Republic (1950-Present)

In 1945 President Frontone won the elections with his slogan Unify All. By 1945, the Corcellan Republic occupied 95% of the Corcellan Archipelago. The Midistland Republic occupied the district of Ventura a heavily fortified city in Corcello's South West corner. President Frontone pursued constitutional talks with Chester in order to integrate it into Corcello. In 1949 Midistland signed a letter of intent with Frontone's Corcello that stated that Midistland troops would leave Chester within a year. In 1950 Chester was welcomed with Tanks and Airplanes. Corcello officially occupied 100% of the Archipelago. Frontone triumphed and created the 6th constitution which became the base of the 6th Republic of Corcello. Political stability in the region was finally back to normal levels and waves of business' came to Corcello to set up shop. The economy flourished and the Corcellan Dollar was 3 times more valuable than the Ispelian Lira.

In 1953 Corcello signed a Free Trade agreement with Ispelia, its primary ally. With the election of Frontone, the gambling industry increased by 200%. Boca was the main Gambling hub of Corcello. In light of this, Frontone created the National Casino Organization Organizatione Nazionale di Casini to look over all the casinos in Corcello.

The re-election of President Frontone in 1952 initianted the beginning of the Industrial Revolution in Corello (La Revoluzione Industriale). Corcello became one of the Tiger Economies of the Kaspian Sea with a GDP growth of 10% each year. Corcello tested its first Nuclear Warhead the Fire (Il Fuoco) in 1957 about 200 km off the coast of Corcello. Military spending was taking up 15% of the GDP. Corcello unlike other countries practiced a closed border policy in which only a certain amount of people where aloud in per year and they had to be willing to learn how to speak Corcellan. Many public projects started including the construction of the San Giorgio International Airport in 1975 as the main international gateway of the country and the expansion of the National Highway System. Frontone was the longest serving President of the Republic of Corcello (43 years) until his death in 1988.

After Frontone's death in 1988 there was a massive power struggle between the PC and the National Corcellan Party. Widespread clashes between the leftist and the rightist followed. Paramilitary troops started to assemble and attack political strong holds. The most famous party would be the Macerati (Le Macerati) that bombed tourist destinations like Boca, San Giorgio Airport, the San Giorgian metro but the most famous one was the bombing of the Presidential Palace on June 17th 1995 that killed incumbent President Michele Pergola, Vice President Bettino Arla and 12 ministers during a meeting in the western wing. Speaker of the House of Commons Nicola Mondavio became President and introduced the National Security Bill that allowed the military to storm homes, streets or cities and arrest anyone and everyone whom were thought to be a part of the Le Macerati.

In November of 1996, the army launched a tactical assault Operazione Fuoco Rosso on Capo Boretti where the alleged seat of Le Macerati were located. The army blocked all accesses in and out of the city including the railway and established checkpoints at each access. The military suspended civil liberties in the city and was able to hold a person in prison for a period of 90 days. The operation was a success since President Mondavio was able to capture the inner ring of the Macerati including the Leader Rodolfo Di Morno. They paraded them all around the island attracting hundreds of thousands of people to ridicule them. They were then tried for treason and first degree murder of the President they were then put into La Manovra Supermax Prison. The army although arrested 5,000 people only to find 11 to be a part of the Macerati.

The roaring economy slowed down in the late 90s after a worldwide increase in oil prices. This led to President Mondavio's decision to diversify the economy into the tech sector. In 2002 the first Skyscraper was built since 1987 and Arestopolli was also building a couple of its own. In the 2008 elections Mondavio lost the leadership to Emilio Mazza after corruption charges plagues his administration. Mazza won 65.7% to 34.3% to the National Party.

Language

The Corcellan Language is very similar to its Ispelian counterpart but originates from Bestrina where first transcripts in Corcellan were found to be originated from 93 A.D. Before Corcellan, it's direct ancestor is Vitum which has been long obsolete.

Some examples of Corcellan would be instead of saying: Ho andato al teatro e ho una mela e l'ho mangiato you would say Ho gito al teatro e cio una mela e l'ho magiato. Instead of Il Gatto it would be El Gat.

Corcellan is the official language of The Republic of Corcello and roughly 95% percent of the population speaks it.
