The Settlers (1600 - 1700AD)Edit
At the beginning of the 1600, a group of settlers arriving from the old world crashed there boat on the beach close to a tribe of Natives. At first sight of these strangers the Natives hide back in the forest.
After a few hours of trying to understand one another; the settlers were brought to the village of the natives. Where they passed most of the year learning there way of life and implementing there own. The bonds between the tribes and the settlers grew. As the settlers were getting married with the women from the tribe; this brought both cultures even more together till the point where you couldn’t say the difference from who were the settlers and who weren’t.
The tribe village grew threw the years as the amount of population grew. A few years later more and more ships from where the settlers had departed from arrive at the village. This meant even more expansions. This continued the same way for 100 years.
The Men of Discoveries(1701-1805AD)Edit
At the beginning of the 1700; the tribe had expanded that their once small village was now a small district of the city that was standing there. This expansion had been for the good of the tribe and settlers. Though this new city was created the next hundred years many people devoted their life time to making this city a nation.
One of the first men to try and make this city become its own nation was Gustavo Hector. Gustavo was a business man from Madrid, Spain. Arriving in 1705 at the age of 25; he spent most of his life teaching the way of business and economy to the chief of the tribe and anybody who wanted to listen to him. Sadly Gustavo Hector died on July 7, 1709 from a disease. His efforts weren’t lost as his classes were continued by new business mans who had arrived in the four years of him living in the tribe.
The second men who brought many changes to the city was a man by the name of Jenaro Leonardo. Arriving in the tribe in 1708; he past his thirty years of living teaching religions to the people from the tribe; while at the same time listening to what the tribe people had to say on their beliefs. His will of listening to them and not imposing any religion on them made the discussions quite peaceful. His devotion towards the tribe brought him to receive the Medal of Excellence in 1993. Even if he was already dead for so many years; one of his descendants received the medal in his name.
The last man who brought the most changes after learning all the knowledge he learned from the two previous men was Chief Ashkii. Chief Ashkii was the new chief who was appointed in 1703 after the death of the previous chief. While Chief Ashkii had enough power to control the decisions of the city; he decided that it would be better to be put in the hands of a group of people. The group would be decided by the people of the city. Half of the group would be natives and the other half would be from the settlers. So the knowledge of surviving in these lands from the natives would be useful while the knowledge of economy from the settlers would be able to make the city prosper. It took a total of 5 years before the city decided to have the first group who were name The Men of Discoveries. Chief Ashkii died two years after the formation of the group. Chief Ashkii was the last chief to have hold power in the tribe.
The Men of Discoveries brought the city to prosper as meetings would happen daily in what used to be the old Chief house. It was soon decided that if the city wanted to prosper that they needed to relate into trades with other tribes. The two primary resources that the tribe had collected through time were pigs and fish. Pigs would be grown on the outskirts of the city while fish would be caught in the many rivers and lakes around the city. By the 1730s; the city was involved with ships from the settler’s native lands. The ships would bring in what they needed, which was wheat; spices and many other resources. The lumber would be cut weekly in the woods around the city.
The Men of Discoveries had a major change in their comity when half of the comity died of oldness. It was then decided that the other part of the comity would be relieved from duty to be replace with a totally new comity.
The Footsteps towards Nationality (1806-1906AD)Edit
This period of time was the greatest success for the city. The fourth comity had taken place and many projects were now progress. One involving turning into a Nation of the West lands; a few brave settlers had left to settle new cities around the city so that they could expand. Getting more resources and having more place for the citizens who were going up in numbers.
It took thirty years for the cities to develop properly. In 1840 the comity had a major change. Instead of being formed of half natives and half settlers. It was decided that there would be a member of the comity per city. So the comity ended up have 14 members. In 1841, a reunion was made in Syran (Named after the Wife of Chief Ashkii). The comity members finally decided at that time to move on from being just cities into becoming a nation. For the following weeks, a few flag designs were drawn. The flag was soon decided and raised for the first time in front of the Comity Building. This was the final movement the city did as a city. The Cities were now all under one ruler. The ruler was the comity. They acted as the government for the nation. Now the nation had a flag, a government, a capital city but missing the name. This was when the only native at that time in the comity gave the suggestion of United Katanese. Katanese meaning in their tribal language meant land. The comity loving the suggestion made a simple arrangement to it. In 1842 the nation was officially named United Katan. Their flag was raised in each city. The tribes around them accepted the independence of the nation also did the home land of the settlers. By 1905, United Katan had grown from 14 cities to 17 cities. The three additional cities were tribes in the surroundings who had asked to join the nation. The comity was now 17 members. Also by this time United Katan had founded the Armed Forces of Katan where in the Armed Forces was Ground Forces and Navy Forces of Katan. These two divisions were founded on the principles of protecting and fighting for the beliefs and opinions of United Katan.
The Alliances of United Katan (1907 – Present)Edit
The nation not expanding in size but in number and forced was soon filled with problems from surrounding nations. These brought the United Katan to turn towards Foreign Diplomacy and most importantly the joining of Alliances in the world. United Katan signed in Monos Archein the first alliance they were in. They stayed in this alliance till 2007. The alliance brought United Katan to prosper in economy, growth, military force and to set there place in their surrounding lands. This alliance also brought many foundation of friendships with other nations in the world. The United Katan had made a good choice in joining Monos Archein. Though things got complicated in 2007; the government of United Katan went in a political crisis. Shutting themselves into their reunion room for two weeks before coming out with sad news; after passing a total of 100 years in the alliance known as Monos Archein; United Katan announced their resignation from this alliance. The reasons were for them to prosper on their own and in a new alliance. Who met the new government beliefs and direction they wanted to bring their nation towards. This brought the United Katan to sign into Aurora Borealis. An alliance filled of old friends of United Katan. There they took their place into the alliance. Still today they reside in Aurora Borealis. Even if they are in a new alliance and in a new century; United Katan still remembers the great men and great women who brought United Katan to prosper as much as what they are today. These great men and women will always be remembered and have been signed into the Kistese.
The Economy in United Katan is at one of its major peek in the whole history of United Katan. Reaching just over the $300 for gross income. This peek in the economy can easily be related to the tremendous amount of fishes that the fishermen have been bringing back from their fishing trips on the Saint Lawrence river.
The Environment Minister has been on the alert of this situation. Making a few test in the river to see what could make this increase in the amount of fish. The farms on the outskirts of the city has also been a major part in this economic prosper. The pigs price going up with the amount of fast food demand in the countries.
The Minister of Finace can only wish that this peek continues for a while now as the money is coming in. As the money is put aside for a future project that wasn't shown to the public yet.
As the growth of United Katan is demanding in many departments of the country. Another of these demand is education. United Katan is one of the proud nations that have a literacy rate of 100%. This excellement hasn't come without hard work. Having a total of five school for the whole country seems a small amount at first but for United Katan this is alot of schools. Already that Syran, Quelle, Mez and Leira are less than 10 minutes away from one another. Most cities in United Katan are concentrated at the riverbank of the Saint Lawrence.
With these five schools come two grand universities. The University of Sonia is located in the capital city Syran. The University of Leverdor can be found in the city of Quelsh. The universities are located so they can easily accept every student from across the nation.
United Katan is located along the Saint Lawrence river. This position permits the Katanese people to easily fish and have farms along the river for good irrigation. With this position comes better naval transport and a fresh abundant source of water for the cities.
United Katan consist of 17 cities/villages. These cities are in alphabetical order here.
