Kuggyong (Gohangukian: 국경, Guggyeong), formally the State of Kuggyong (국경의 국가, Guggyeong-ui gugga) is a sovereign state located in the southeastern region of Uletha. It shares borders with Orinoco to the east, and with (TBC) to the south and the west.

Etymology

Kuggyong is an Ingerish translation of the Gohangukian term for borderland, Guggyeong, as it was situated at the traditional borderland between the Orinocans to the east and the Gohangukians to the west.

History

Pre-colonial era

  • Gohangukians arrive from neighboring Eurell
  • maybe native Orinocans resided there, idk

Colonial era

  • some Ingerish sod discovers it, decides to make a private colony without permission of King, founds Kingstown anyway
  • another sod goes to Aigar Province, creates Colony of Aigar
  • further exploration sees the first colony expand, is eventually divided into provinces
  • colony possibly renamed to Kuggyong
  • Aigar colony meanwhile focuses on enslaving natives and putting them to work to harvest cotton or, idk, maybe a less cliched plant
  • Aigar becomes independent as a Republic
  • tensions between Aigar and Kuggyong grow, culminate in border dispute over the movement of the Pipalun River, border was ruled in favor of Kuggyong's claim in the 1850s
  • slavery officially abolished in Kuggyong in 1858 (though there were only less than 20 slaves that year), Aigar attempts to maintain slavery as Aigar begins to industrialize
  • in 1888, Edwin Lale of Kuggyong establishes Laleton, discovers coal, and results in a 10-year territorial dispute over the present-day Hangmuji Province
  • Odell was established by Aigarian miners in 1890, and recognized by Aigar's government as being part of Aigar, claimed by Kuggyong as part of the Hangmuji region
  • Hangmuji Province created in 1892 by Kuggyong, extended claim to the "foothills of the Pugul Mountains" in present-day Aigar Province
  • arbitration in 1898 causes Hangmuji to be integrated into Kuggyong, Kuggyong offers proceeds of the revenues if Aigar agreed to join Kuggyong as a province
  • negotiations began, some deadlock over slavery with Kuggyong wishing slavery be abolished, Aigar wanting to keep it
  • compromise achieved in 1901, with all existing "indentured servants" in Aigar to remain under that status under condition that they stayed in Aigar, but their offspring will not be indentured servants, but rather, deemed "yamanin," albeit still subject to provincial laws unlike the rest of Kuggyong
  • Aigar given some concessions regarding other affairs, namely control over natural resources in Aigar

Union

  • union in 1903 between Aigar and colony of Kuggyong, given self-governing powers by Ingerland
  • elections elect first Prime Minister Leonard Evans
