Oyapilic {Defunct}

“If the peace is enforced at the point of a dagger, can it even be called peace at all?” -Viktor Plizny II, Crown Prince of Sergrade

Written by WEASEL OF ROME

Princedom of Oyapilic

Structure

An absolute monarchy under the rule of the Crown Prince, the Plizny family of Sergrade made up the Royal Family of Oyapilic and ruled until 1251. From 1251 until 1259, a council of former royal advisors tried to keep the peace as the Oyapilic Government Remnant.

Culture

Oyapilic literally means Land of the Pilics and encompassed the entirety of the Pilic world, from Sergrade in the north to Polsawa in the south. Because the nation was formed as the result of multiple military campaigns of Sergradic expansionism, the Sergradic were seen as culturally dominant.

Public Agenda

The daily task of the Crown in Oyapilic was to maintain the fragile peace built by Sergradic expansionism.

History

• 1053 – Crown Prince Viktor Plizny III declares the Pax Pilic, declaring an era of peace and stability for all Pilic peoples.   • 1059 – Crown Prince Viktor Plizny III decrees the name of the nation is changed to Oyapilic, meaning “Land of the Pilic People,” “Pilic Lands,” or more literally, "All of the Pilics."   • 1062 – Nationwide integration and reform policies seek to unify all holdings into a single, organized and centrally administrated state.   • 1067 – All ethic and national militias are peacefully or forcibly disbanded as efforts to create a unified National Military begin.   • 1068 – The Oyapilic People’s Army (OPA) is founded and becomes the official military force of Oyapilic.   • 1070 – Oyapilic begins its first national draft, including citizens of all ethnicities.   • 1071 – Crown Prince Stanislaus Plizny is crowned as the first Crown Prince of Oyapilic.   • 1071–1250 – For the first time in history, the Pilic people enjoy an unstable era of peace through force, under several Sergradic-national Crown Princes.   • 1251 – Crown Prince Otto Plizny III dies without an heir, throwing the region into chaos.   • 1251 – Bans on Sergradic nationalist groups and militias are lifted with the interest of maintaining Sergradic ethnic hegemony in Oyapilic.   • 1252 – Illegal ethnic militias across Oyapilic begin to form, launching guerilla raids on Oyapilic government offices.   • 1253 – Rowic declares independence from Oyapilic. OPA troops are forced out of the region.   • 1254 – Polsawa and Harajasic declare independence from Oyapilic. The OPA retreats from Polsawa, but is overrun in Harajasic.   • 1255 – The OPA is plagued by mass desertions, leaving it a crippled and ineffective fighting force.   • 1256 – A new Sergradic nationalist government takes power in Oyapilic, and immediately declares Sergrade’s independence from Oyapilic. The remnants of the former Oyapilic government flee to northern Transpovania.   • 1258 – The Joint Kingdom of Milic & Wosternak is released from Oyapilic and granted independence under terms similar to the 891 Treaty of Jarasevic.   • 1259 – Transpovania declares independence from Oyapilic, officially returning the region to a series of de facto autonomous states. The Oyapilic Government Remnant is forced to surrender.

Disbandment

In 1251, Crown Prince Otto Plizny III died without an heir. Shortly after, ethnic nationalist movements across Oyapilic pushed for the independence for the original Pilic states, reviving the individual pre-Oyapilic geopolitical environment. The Oyapilic Government Remnant tried to keep the peace, but without a Plizny prince to demand legitimacy and high numbers military desertions, the effort collapsed within a decade.

Military

In 1067, Crown Prince Viktor Plizny III demanded the disbanding of all ethnic and national militias across Oyapilic, and a year later in 1068, the Oyapilic People's Amy (OPA) was officially formed with the goal of being a unified fighting force made up of people of all Pilic ethnicities to defend the fragile peace across the Pilic lands. In 1070, Oyapilic began its first national draft. The OPA was easily recognizable by the gray coats worn over their armor and fish fur ushanka hats inlaid with a pin of the Plizny family coat of arms. The soldiers were reputed to maintain the highest order of professionalism and organization. Plans by the crown to institute a policy decreeing 2 years of mandatory service in the OPA for all Pilic men - for the purposes of integration and developing a new national identity - were scrapped in 1251 following the death of Crown Prince Otto Plizny III.

Religion

The Pilic Pantheon was worshipped across the nation, though the worship of Pola the Great was forbidden to those serving in the armed forces.

Foreign Relations

Oyapilic, despite appearing to the outside as a formidable contender on the world stage, was mainly quiet when it came to foreign affairs. Most government efforts went into maintaining the fragile internal peace of the region.

Agriculture & Industry

The majority of Oyapilic citizens were reliant on farming for work.

Trade & Transport

In the Sergrade and Rowic regions, a commercial boom occurred during the early Oyapilic period, bringing in new trade opportunities and a massive economic boost for Oyapilic.
