History

The first town of the Niulutan islands was Cascande. Cascande was founded 1522 from colonist, leaded by the idea of religious supremacy. Over short or long all the islands of Niulutan belongs to the theocracy of Cascande and so they all have a name after a saint person. The regulary tactic was, to baptist the leader of the indigene tribes and corrupt them, that they go under "the mild hand of god". Only some islands are conquered with violence. This state were known as the "holy islands".

In the end of the 19th century more and more islands declare her independence from the holy state and made step by step the republice of Niulutan Islands. Here native people and ulethian settlers without religious foundation work together. This changing was not always violent, because since the 1880ies in Cascande itself the idea of a theocratic regime lost the support of the own people. First independent 1888 was the great island in the north, Sankt Petrus island and now named Tukunri, which means "Northern-copper-island" with the first capital Tsakuna. Tsakuna til today is the capital of the whole country.

1929 was made the treaty of Napiukon, that the islands are free from theocraty, but that Cascande is then an independent unit of the republicc of Niulutan with many own rights and a religious and christian land - but more neutral and liberal in his living. Therefore today is Cascande more a great theologican university since a theocraty and leading in theological studies worldwide.

Niulutan-Riu is rich of copper. To avoid, that from other states or through illegal actions this ressource is taken over, since 1837 the government of the holy islands and now of the republic of Niulutan-Riu has an agreement of shelter with Zylanda and Latina. Both nations have some troops and navy-units on the Niulutan islands in the Camp Störtebeker in the south 10, 18.2770, 96.4881 and the Camp Bronce in the north 12, 21.4817, 93.7697. Therefore the trade with copper with the Great Copper, Bronce and Brass Company are partly in the hand of zylandrian and latinian merchants.
