Veniciana Declares IndependanceEdit
Veniciana was formed after the War of the Horses(1818-1830) in which the colony of Veniciana delcared its independance from the France. King Philip I was the General of the Veniciana forces, and was therefore chosen to be the nation's first leader.
King Philip I began to turn Veniciana into an Empire. After 15 years of reign, he had conquered almost 2/3 of France and an eighth of the British Empire. This lacked the approval of the population, and after the Battle of Jeiningstein, in which 12,000 Veniciana Soldiers died, a large number of citizens staged a coup and ousted King Philip I.
Veniciana's First DemocracyEdit
After the ousting of King Philip I, General Tyler Halpen was appointed temporary leader of the country while reform of how the Government was ran was set up. During his reign, General Halpen approved and got the Veniciana Parliament building finished in 1838.
So, after the Parliament building was completed, Parliament, or as it was called "The Governing Council" wrote the foundation on which the government would be ran.
It involved a sysytem of Legislative and Executive powers. The nation would ultimately be ran by a Prime Minister and his Ministry; however, Parliament would have the power to introduce and make into law, legislature they felt would better the nation.
The Parliament would be consisted of two bodies, the House of Lords and the House of Commons. The House of Lords was comprised of Men who could produce a viable Regal Bloodline or whom had been granted Lordship by General Halpin and the Governing Council. The House of Commons would be comprised of Men who were popularly elected in their respective constituancies.
Veniciana, A Modern GovernmentEdit
In 1956, Parliament introduced the "Sarington Government Reform Act" which would reform the Government into a modern government, as the world was changing in the way it ran.
The new Government would have a link between the Legislative and Executive; thus, explaining where the Lord Chamberlain title came from. The Lord Chamberlain would act as the Chairmen of the House of Lords and as the nation's second in command.
Then Prime Minister, Wanner, signed the Sarington Government Reform Act into law bringing Veniciana into the new age.
The Polar WarsEditIn March 2007, Veniciana was attacked by three Polar nations. These nations, who have since disbanded, attacked Veniciana off guard.
A surpise attack in the midst of night by three nations of the New Polar Order. All Defense and Communication Satellites were disarmed and the nation was under attack.
The attack began with the bombing of Meleroma and Valincia, Veniciana's largest cities. The nation was in chaos because no one knew what was happening. As soon as the Defense Ministry had been able to hook up to a NASA Satellite, the defensive began.
General Micheal Johnston, then Chief General of the Veniciana Armed Forces, launched a full scale counter. After the attack on Valincia, he ordered the launch of 50 Cruise Missles against the nations. After Ground invasions were unsuccessful and our Air Forces were being shot down, Veniciana had to declare peace under the surrender terms.
The Polar Wars may be counted as a defeat in military history; however, Veniciana considers it an unprovoked attacked on an innocent nation that was caught off guard. In the end, after 10 days of fighting 2,500 soldiers were killed, 90 Tank Crews, 20 Air Force Divisions, and 1,500 citizens died.
Veniciana, A New DayEdit
After the devastation of The Polar Wars, Veniciana Parliament voted to enroll our nation in the North Atlantic Defense Coalition, an alliance in which nations are protected and joined together in common defense. No longer will Veniciana be left alone to fend for ourself.
The Second Polar WarsEdit
On January 26, 2008, the nation's security was placed in peril as the New Polar Order declared war on the North Atlantic Defense Coalition. As a financial nation, Veniciana was placed on lock down, and did not enter the war. However, it was a terrible sight as our fellow member nations were attacked and suffered.
The War of 2009Edit
On April 26, 2009, Veniciana was given orders by the North Atlantic Defense Coalition to Declare War in defense of our allies. Imperial Chancellor immediately called Parliament into special session for a Vote of Declaration to declare war, while then Minister of Defense Lasley organized the nation's Armed Forces for an offensive.
Veniciana declared war on one nation, and was thus declared upon by 3 other nations. Our Armed Forces fought valiantly and was victorious in all of its battles, while in the end the North Atlantic Defense Coalition ceased attacks. Veniciana declared peace with the nations, and immediately began to rebuild.
The Coup of 2009Edit
On May 3, then Prime Minister Sir Guinn, along with other key officials, attempted a coup for power against Imperial Chancellor Wangler. Chancellor Wangler was away to Valincia, leaving Meleroma in the hands of Prime Minister Guinn. Prime Minister Guinn called together the Parliament of Veniciana into a special closed session to hold a Vote of Incompacitation on Chancellor Wangler, stating that he was no longer fit to run the nation. An order issued in the name of Chancellor Wangler for the Meleroma Guard to hold the Members of Parliament in the Parliament Building until the vote had passed.
Then-Minister of Defense Lasley, who had been travelling with the Chancellor, had received a copy of the order. He immediately brought it to the attention of Chancellor Wangler. Chancellor Wangler immediately issued an order for the Meleroma Guard to arrest Prime Minister Guinn and his collaborators for treason.
Parliament later voted to remove Prime Minister Guinn from his position, and the House of Lords stripped him of his Lordship as well. Imperial Chancellor Wangler then appointed Minister of Defense Lasley to fill the position. Mr. Guinn was convicted of High Treason against the State, and is serving a life sentence in Ralfington High Security Prison.
The Death of Imperial Chancellor Wangler and Prime Minister LasleyEdit
On July 9, 2009, former Imperial Chancellor Wangler and Prime Minister Lasley were on their way back from a meeting with officials from Legendria and Babanga. They were aboard the Imperial Chancellors private aircraft over the Atlantic Ocean when at approximately 7:03 GMT Time, an engine caught fire causing the aircraft to explode in mid-air sending debris and all those on board 27,000 feet to the Atlantic Ocean.
At 7:09 GMT Time, the Veniciana Royal Navy dispatched a rescue team to the area. The bodies of Imperial Chancellor Wangler and Prime Minister Lasley were the first to be recovered, all the bodies but 2 of the crew were found. Speaker of the House Boushie was immediately sworn in as Imperial Chancellor.
Imperial Chancellor Boushie declared July 9 be known as Remembrance Day for the service that both men gave to our great nation.
Today, Veniciana is a steadily growing economic nation, and is a member of the North Atlantic Defense Coalition. The Imperial Chancellor is Gregory Woods, and Mr. Christopher Matthews serves as the Prime Minister and Imperial Regent.
