The name Tierajas-Verdes was adopted in 1531 by Castellán settlers on the Changori River gained off of local Pavparvati tribes. Originally entitled Norte Baldoria (Ingerish:North Baldoria), after it's geographical location, the country was renamed to Tierajas-Verdes due to the new sight upon the mountains beyond the Changori River, with the name translating roughly to "Great Green Mountains"
The native people of Tierajas-Verdese, the Pavparvati, and the land they originate from are entitled the same "Pavparvati", due to the name originating from the culture they are from, the Pavparvati culture. They adopted the name unanimously after combining a majority of tribes of different cultures and names into a nationalist movement.
The earliest signs of life in Tierajas-Verdes were found in archaeological sites near Aashrarg in the valley between the Cathar Mountains, containing bronze-age tools. Further bronze-age tools have been found along the foothills of the Cathar Mountains towards current Fuente Olmedo. It is thought these tools are from various tribes before the Pavparvati gained dominance in the region.
Rise of Pradipi
In the 11th century, Pradipi was founded from original guru; Gurura Prahbhakara, who began to write down the Gururaranna Pyaseja, the scriptures of Pradipi. From that point, Sikhism grew in size rapidly especially during the time of Gurura Pradipa Jaina after the Crossing at Rajara Bajara which popularized the religion in Pavparvati. The Gurura title finished in the 15th century after the colonization by Castellán and the completion of the holy scriptures, the Gurura Sampanna Pyaseja (the Gururas' Complete Passages) which was handed the mantle of teaching Pridipi.
In 1408, Castellán colonists arrived in the southern Pavparvati tribal lands setting up settlements down the coast. 1451 saw the amalgamation of these settlements with help by neighboring Castellán colonies in Baldoria to become Norte Baldoria.
North Baldorian Lawmakers in 1527 announced a bold claim for historical Pavparvati tribal lands in the north along the Changori River. War ensues out of this as threats of a "persuasive purchase" of the lands was made. After 4 years of war, the Pavparvati surrendered to the technologically advanced Castelláns, surrendering the land along the Changori River and moved further north into the delta of the Changori where conditions for living was harder due to frequent flooding and storms. The etymology of the name Tierajas-Verdes was formed after this war.
Tierajas-Verdes was one of the last colonies of Castellán to gain independence, in 1888. Tierajas-Verdes was formed officially when the Pavparvati accepted a treaty to form one unified nation.
Post-Independence and Emerging Industries
From it's peaceful independence in 1888 from Castellán. Tierajas-Verdes has kept relatively close cultural and technological ties to Castellán, which fed into the industrialization of Tierajas-Verdes at the turn of the 20th century. The rise of steam-power and industrialization in Castellán directly correlates to the growth of industry and technology in Tierajas-Verdes as ex-patriots setting up industry in Tierajas-Verdes used the newest of technologies. This led to the formation of multiple railway companies, the rapid expansion of textile mills, and a larger industry in metal and wood, setting up the composition of industry in Tierajas-Verdes since the 1900s.
Grand Verdese War
From the 1970s, Tierajas-Verdes was a tense nation, with growing Pavparvati nationalist movements appearing politically and culturally. They called for reparations from the Colonial Era under Castellán, further political representation, and political and economical autonomy. This continued on until 1983 when newly elected President of Tierajas-Verdes; Rameshwar Vives, was over-thrown in a military coup d'état and replace with General Nirav Kulkarni with intention to repress the nationalist movement in Pavparvati. This coup d'état started what would go on to be called the Grand Verdese War.
During the Grand Verdese War, spanning 1983 to 1998, warring factions vied for control of Tierajas-Verdes. The fight was between the Official National Government, controlled by Nirav Kilkarno; Pavparvati Nationalists; the Cooperative Verdese Government who were the former controlling Parliament before the junta who had the support of foreign parties in the conflict; Anti-fascists; and communists.
1995 saw a cooling for the war as a peace process between the Official National Government, Pavparvati Nationalists and the Cooperative Verdese Government, hosted by the Union of the Liberan Peninsula, led to a Provisional Government of Tierajas-Verdes.
The Provisional Government contained legitimate political parties representing Kulkarni, Pavparvati Nationalist parties, and the older parties of the Cooperative Verdese Government, overseen by the Union of the Liberian Peninsula. The first national elections since the war occurred in 1998, again accompanied by oversight by the Union of the Liberian Peninsula, saw representation for the Pavparvati National Party for the first time, while political parties from before the Grand Verdese War saw representation too.
El Segundo Milenio
1999 saw a swing in position on Pavparvati nationalism, as the Millenium and Reconstruction Bill, introduced by the new government and supported by a large majority of parties passed to start rebuilding major Pavparvati cities and infrastructure that was destroyed in the Grand Verdese War including Parirakbe and Chaangee Said.
After the support from the Union of the Liberian Peninsula in the Grand Verdese War, and over-seeing the Provisional Government and 1998 elections. Tierajas-Verdese was successfully voted in as a member of the Union of the Liberian Peninsula in 2001.
In 2004, the Verdese Parliament allowed a referendum on devolution for the Pavparvati, voted on by the population of Pavparvati. This would include a new Parliament for Pavparvati in Parirakbe, a First Minister for Pavparvati and maintaining representation in Verdese Parliament.
Tierajas-Verdes is comprised of over 28,000km2 (10,000 sq mi) and is found on the north-east of the Liberan Peninsula nestled between the Sea of Mojaca and the Cathar Mountains. It's geographic location is the most southerly continental nation to be connected to the Sea of Mojaca, with only Onnutu further south geographically. The south-eastern coast of Tierajas-Verdes faces the Asperic Ocean.
The geography of Tierajas-Verdes is heavily influenced by the rivers and tide-dominated deltas that spans the north of the country. The two main rivers that flow through Tierajas-Verdes are the multi-national Shukri and Changori rivers that enter through the western boarder region between valleys of the Cathar Mountains. The Changori river then divulges into the Jalangi river, running through the center of the country whilst the Changori connects with the Shukri to the north.
The deltas of the Changori and Jalangi rivers are found outside of Parirakbe. The Changori Delta and Jalangi Deltas differ in mineral content, with the Changori Delta consisting of a majority Laterite sediment, whist the Jalangi Delta sees a majority of Alluvium sediment.
Due to the content of the river sediments, a large section of both rivers are of furtile nature, with large amounts of minerals and nutrients from the Cathar Mountains. Most of the furtile lands are of a flat elevation. The west and south-west of the country sees the foothills of the Cathar Mountains and a small segment of the actual range. The range's highest peak is found on the border between Tierajas-Verdes and Maalfland called Mount Ujiingsu at 3910 meters in height. The majority of forests you will find in Tierajas-Verdes can be found along the northern coast by the deltas, and towards the Cathar Mountains.
