The Republic of Transvaal is a sizeable, well developed, and ancient nation at 1485 days old with citizens primarily of Dutch ethnicity whose religion is Christianity. Its technology is first rate and its citizens marvel at the astonishing advancements within their nation. Its citizens pay extremely high taxes and many despise their government as a result. The citizens of Transvaal work diligently to produce Water and Sugar as tradable resources for their nation. It is a mostly neutral country when it comes to foreign affairs. It will usually only attack another nation if attacked first. It believes nuclear weapons are necessary for the security of its people. The military of Transvaal has been positioned at all border crossings and is arresting all drug traffickers. Transvaal allows its citizens to protest their government but uses a strong police force to monitor things and arrest lawbreakers. It has an open border policy, but in order for immigrants to remain in the country they will have to become citizens first. Free speech is considered taboo in Transvaal. The government gives foreign aid when it can, but looks to take care of its own people first. The government of Transvaal will trade with any other country regardless of ethical consequences.

At the time of independence, the Transvaal Republic laid direct claim over all territory which made up the former Transvaal province of South Africa as well as the enclave of Walvis Bay in Namibia.
However, due to military expansion from the Third Great War, Swaziland and parts of Botswana (around Gaborone) came under Transvaal direct control; formerly protectorates, these two territories are currently governed as the Tswana and Swazi Provinces.
On April 30, 2007 Transvaal gained direct access to the Indian Ocean when Maputo in Mozambique was occupied. The following day, the Sotho Protectorate was established from occupied Lesotho territory. All occupied Mozambique territory was incorporated into the Occupied Economic Zone on May 11, 2007.
The city of Bloemfontien was liberated on May 14, 2007 during the Southern Front campaign. On the following day, Messina in the north was occupied as the Northern Front campaign commenced. Transvaal military units entered Zimbabwe territory and announced plans to create its new Rhodesia Protectorate for governance as soon as more territory was liberated.

On October 1, 2007 Transvaal's territorial control drastically increased by 140 miles from land liberated from LSF guerilla control to achieve its largest extent to date - most notably making the Rhodesian Protectorate a more viable territory. Prior to liberation from LSF control, effective Transvaal influence in Zimbabwe-Rhodesia had previously been confined to the immediate area around Bietbridge and environs.
On October 6, 2007, as Transvaal control began to fall over Namibia, that territory was annexed and placed under direct Republic control. The South West African Protectorate was established on November 5, 2007.
A major territorial acquisition on November 29, 2007 resulted in government control in Rhodesian reaching the Livingstone Falls on the Zambezi River and the outskirts of Harare-Salisbury in Rhodesia. Beira in Mozambique incorporated into the Occupied Economic Zone.
The cities of Port Elizabeth and Windhoek were annexed into the Republic on December 21, 2007.
On December 27, all of Botswana came under Transvaal control.
The city of Lusaka came under government control on January 4, 2008 along with all of Rhodesia. A direct land route connected Transvaal with the Walvis Bay enclave.
Two days later, Kaapstad (Cape Town) peacefully was annexed into Transvaal. The following day on January 7, 2008, All South African territory came under Transvaal government control after Simonstown was annexed into the Republic. The city of Blantyre in Nyasaland (Malawi) was occupied the same day as part of the Rhodesian Protectorate.
Transvaal recognised the independence of Cherokee Namibia on March 3, 2008 from the South West Africa Protectorate.
On May 3, 2008 Prime Minister Hertzog announced a major restructuring of the internal divisions within the Federal Republic of Transvaal. The Occupied Economic Zone of Mozambique, Northern Rhodesia, and Nyasaland were re-classified as African Protectorates while Northern Namibia was placed under white protectorate rule along with the remainder of (southern) Rhodesia.
After Cherokee Namibia was deleted due to inactivity, that territory was re-annexed into the Namibian Protectorate of the Federal Republic on July 24, 2008.
On August 6, 2008 Transvaal withdrew its occupation of Southern Angola and relinquished all control and claimed over the territory.

On December 1, 2008, the Madagaskar Vrystaat was abolished by mutual agreement and Southern Madagascar re-united with Arctica.
With the sudden demise of Tionese/Franzharia rule over their Indian Ocean islands on December 25, 2008, the Mauritius and Seychelles (Seychelles and Aldabra) island chains were occupied and incorporated into the Indian Ocean protectorate.
With the collapse of the Pan-African Coalition, Transvaal re-exerted its territorial claim over Southern Angola. However instead of occupation, the Federal Republic immediately turned the region over to the soon-to-be independent Zambian authority.
On February 26, 2009, the new nations of Association (Nyasaland), Franzharia-Zambia (Northern Rhodesia) and Mozambique were granted their full independence from the Federal Republic. Transvaal retained control of the city of Maputo and all of Mozambique south of the Save River.

Transvaal Armed Forces (Krygsmagte) Edit
At it's fully-mobilised strength, the Transvaler Krygsmagte (Transvaal Armed Forces) consisted of 35,000 soldiers and 2,500 tanks. Since the time of independence until the collapse of Transvaal, the Krygsmagte had suffered 778,473 casualties.
The Krygsmagte was destroyed during the Karma War on April 28, 2009 although isolated and sporadic resistance continued for the next couple of days. General Petrus Malan replaced Field Marshal Paul Cruywagen as Commander-in-Chief on May 5, 2009. Malan was promoted to the rank of field marshal on May 30, 2009. After Petrus Malan's resignation from the Republican Military Government on July 30, 2009, Field Marshal Paul Cruywagen was re-appointed Commander-in-Chief by Prime Minister Annetjie van Matteus.
Field Marshal Cruywagen disolved the Krygsmagte on February 14, 2011 after the collapse of Transvaal resistance. Out of the remaining 9,182 soldiers still in its ranks, 2,755 defected to the Tahoe nationalists in Southern Africa and the remaining 6,427 defected to Arctica.
- 32,500 Krygsmagte soldiers and 2,300 tanks based in the Republic
- 2,500 Krygsmagte soldiers and 200 tanks deployed in Transvaal-Arctica territory
- Krygsmagte soldiers were ususally armed with R1 (FAL FN) 7.62mm battle rifles although some troops had been re-supplied with newer Vektor R4 5.56 mm assault rifles; personal sidearms used were Vektor Z88 9mm pistols
- The primary battle tanks used by the Krygsmagte was the Olifant (Centurion-class) Mark 1, Mark 1A, and Mark 1B models.
Transvaler Oorsese KorpsEdit
The Transvaler Oorsese Korps (Transvaal Overseas Corps) was first established on December 23, 2007 as an expeditionary force for RP deployment assistance in allied nations. Annetjie van Matteus was appointed commander (with the rank of Colonel) when the TOK was sent to the Tahoe Republic on December 24, 2007. The expeditionary force departed Tahoe for re-deployment in Dun Carrig on December 29, 2007.
During the Karma War, the original Oorsese Korps 1 was disbanded after being wiped out in battle. The Korps was officially re-established with 250 soldiers on July 23, 2009.
Within the original TOK there were two foreign detachments: 200 Ierse Vrywillingers (Irish Volunteers) which were evacuated from Dun Carrig on January 3, 2008 and 50 Sakhalinse Vrykorps (Sakhalin Free Corps) which claimed asylum in Transvaal on January 29, 2008. The re-formed Oorsese Korps 2 consisted of native African troops from Namibia under the command of General Annetjie van Matteus.
On July 30, 2010 the Oorsese Korps was wiped out when the transport aircraft returning the unit to Transvaal for re-deployment exploded and crashed over the Indian Ocean.
Transvaal Air Force (Lugmag)Edit
The Transvaler Lugmag (airforce) consisted of the following aircraft:
- 55 F-22 Raptor (fighter) - registration ZA-001 through ZA-055
- 20 F-22 Raptor (fighter) - naval carrier-based aircraft registration ZA-061 through ZA-080
- 5 B-1B Lansier (bomber) - registration ZA-056 through ZA-060
Flight Commander Rik Jansens attended the Kashlinkov AirFest '07 held in May 2007. During the airshow, he negotiated the purchase of 2 F-100 Super Sabre fighters for the TLM.
During the South African War, Rik Jansens was shot down and killed on May 28, 2007 during an interception mission in his P-51 Mustang. The Lugmag remained without a commander until August 11, 2007 when Flight Commander Leonard Wise was promoted to the position of Lugmag Commander.
The Lugmag was completely destroyed in the GOONS invasion of Transvaal during Fourth Great War, although it was soon rebuilt with over $500,000 rand in funds looted from the war against the EotRS nation Lox Eos.
On November 13, 2008 the Transvaler Seemag launched three aircraft carriers. The following day 15 additional F-22 Raptor fighters were purchased for carrier-based operational duty. A fourth aircraft carrier was launched on October 15, 2009 which allowed for the Lugmag to expand to 75 fighters.
The Lugmag was destroyed during the Karma War on May 3, 2009; reconstruction of the Lugmag began on August 26, 2009.
Flight Commander (General) Dietrichs Gerhard replaced Flight Commander Wise on December 26, 2010 after Wise was transferred to command of the Transvaler Raketkorps. After the collapse of Transvaal in February 2011, General Gerhard led the remaining 23 fighter aircraft into exile and interment in Arctica on or around February 7, 2011 - effectively disbanding the Lugmag in the process.
TAF Navy Commander: Admiral Rudolf Kruger
The Transvaler Seemag (navy) was established on August 10, 2008 when the Walvis Bay Shipyards were completed. Kaapstad Drydock was completed on August 19, 2008. During the existance of the navy, Admiral Rudolf Kruger was its one and only commanding officer. Kaapstad Naval Academy was built on September 11, 2008 followed by the Walvisbaai Naval Academy built on September 25, 2008. Kaapstad Shipyards completed on October 27, 2008 with foreign aid from Cheeseton.
All Seemag warships carry the prefix SAS (Suid-Afrikaanse Skip) and a two-digit registration number along with their name.
The Seemag was destroyed during the Karma War, the last ships sunk on April 30, 2009. Seemag reconstruction commenced on August 27, 2009 with the refloating of the SAS-25 Kaiser Martens aircraft carrier.
After the collapse of Transvaal, Admiral Kruger disbanded the navy on February 7, 2011 and led the remaining fleet to ports in Arctica for exile and interment.

Transvaal Rocket Corps (Raketkorps)Edit
The Transvaler Raketkorps (rocket corps) was established as a separate branch from the Lugmag on September 27, 2008 under the command of Colonel Petrus Malan.
The first cruise missile built in Transvaal was launched on January 15, 2007. Previous to the formation of the Raketkorps, all missiles and rocketry was under the supervision of the Lugmag. Transvaal acquired its missile technology from reverse engineering V-2 rockets supplied by Deutschland.
Transvaal's first missile defense site was constructed on October 15, 2008. The second Raketkorps missile defense site was constructed on February 26, 2009.
At 8:23:58 AM on April 3, 2009, the Raketkorps detonated "Seekoeitjie" [Little Hippo], its first nuclear device at Bouvet Island. Later that morning, Transvaal's first operational nuclear bomb was added to the nation's military inventory. For the following week an additional seven bombs were produced to boost its nuclear inventory to 8.
Colonel Petrus Malan was promoted to the rank of general on April 4, 2009 and to the rank of field marshal on May 30, 2009.
On May 28, 2009 the Raketkorps' 4 remaining nuclear bombs were decommissioned due to peace treaty requirements from the Karma War. The first post-Karma War nuclear bomb was built on October 6, 2009 with uranium obstained from Star Gazing.
On February 8, 2010 the Transvaler Raketkorps detonated its first operational atomic bomb during wartime combat when Odinsland came under nuclear attack.
The Raketkorps constructed its Strategic Defense Initiative anti-nuclear missile defense on December 14, 2010. On December 26, 2010, Field Marshal Petrus Malan was replaced as commanding officer by General Leonard Wise - who had been transfered over from the air force.
During the collapse of Transvaal in February 2011, Raketkorps officers arrested and executed General Wise after he had tried to evacuate Transvaal's remaining 3 nuclear weapons to Arctica. Afterwards, what remained of Raketkorps staff and weapon inventory defected over to the Tahoe nationalists on February 10, 2011.

Education in TransvaalEdit
There are five grade schools located in Transvaal: Pretoria, Johannesburg, Bloemfontein, Cape Town, and Soweto. All schooling is 'segregated' by language of instruction - however Soweto is a blacks-only institution.
Education in Transvaal spans 13 years; from grade 0 (5 year-olds) to grade 12 (17-year-olds, graduation year) - however grades 0, 10, 11, and 12 are not compulsory (but 10-12 is required for university entrance). Grades 1-7 are classed as primary and 8-12 as secondary. Grade 0 is regarded as pre-school / kindergarten.
The school year starts the third full week in January and ends the last full week in December - with summer vacation held over the Christmas / New Year season. There is also a two week winter break in the first and second full weeks in July. Children attend the assigned grade for their age as of the first day of the school year.
Language of instruction is Afrikaans for white Afrikaners, Griqua and Cape Coloureds; English for white Anglo-Transvalers; and Afrikaans / English plus Zulu / Xhosa / Tswana / Sotho / Swazi for Black Africans. Black African education is split between 75% in their native language and 25% in either English or Afrikaans. Foreign students are placed in English language schools unless they have Afrikaans or Dutch as a first langauge.
There are two post-secondary institutions, Stellenbosch University (located near Cape Town) and Johannesburg University. University instruction is in English at Johannesburg and in Afrikaans at Stellenbosch - but otherwise both universities are racially integrated, although most blacks opt for Johannesburg due to second-language reasons.
The Staatsregeringministrie vir Sport en Atletiese van Transvaal (Department for Sport and Athletics of Transvaal) governs all aspects of sports and athletics in the nation.
Rugby and association football (soccer) are the most popular team sports in Tranvsaal and are represented by the following national associations: Transvaal Voetbalsvereniging (Transvaal Association Football Union) and Transvaal Rugbyvereniging (Tranvsaal Rugby Union).
On April 3, 2007 the Staatsregeringministrie vir Sport en Atletiese (Department for Sport and Athletics) announced the post-war reconstruction project to host the Nordreich Victory Cup of Soccer; this tournament eventually evolved into the annual Transvaal World Cup.
Originally the only teams based in the nation were national squads - both which are nicknamed the Springboks, "owned" by the Staatsregeringministrie vir Sport en Atletiese van Transvaal, and managed by Bartnel Botha, the current Minister for Sport & Athletics. The soccer Transvaal Springboks have participated in the UCFA Champions League and Liga Mundo while the rugby Springboks competed for one season in the Cybernations Rugby Championship. Currently the only organised Transvaler rugby club is the Transvaler Exiles who play in the Liga Nacional in Cataduanes.
The Transvaal Voetbalsvereniging (Transvaal Football Union) domestic soccer league was established on November 13, 2007 and commenced play the following month. However after two seasons played, both domestic leagues folded.
In November 2008, the Transvaal Ice Hockey Cup was hosted.
On January 6, 2009 the Windhoek Welwitschia soccer club applied for an expansion team and joined the Vedder League. This resulted in Transvaal acquiring a second X11 soccer club.
