Nubia is a nation located in north-east Africa, west of the Gulf of Aden, as well as in Southern Arabia, north of the Gulf of Aden and the Arabian Sea. It shares borders with Aegyptus and Ancient Egypt, to its north, Zanzibar (previously Nyasa), to its south, The Congo nations to its southwest, the Nigerien Nations to its northwest and Somalia. It also shares borders with several 'rebel nations' (such as Sudan and Ethiopia). The nation is commonly split up into around 6 regions.
This is the highly urbanised region around El Obeid and includes the land surrounding lake Nuba, south towards the 'Sudd Swamp', east towards the ruins of An Nahud and North towards Ed Damer. It contains a large portion of the population of Nubia. This area previously included Kraftier, one of Nubia's larger cities before they left and were insided by Nubia.
This is the more sparsely populated desert North of Alodia all the way up to lake Nasser, where Nubia claims to border Aegyptus and Ancient Egypt. Ancient Egypt does not recognise these claims and parts of the region are currently occupied by Aegyptus and Ancient Egypt, as well as recently revived Egypt.
South Sudan encompasses the land including, and bounded by the Sudd Swamp, Lake Albert, Lake Victoria, and Lake Turkana. This is the third most populous region in Nubia, supported largely by the St. Allison, the former third largest city in Nubia.
Ethiopia (the in real life nation region control, not the 'rebel nation' in-game) encompasses all the land of modern day Ethiopia, excluding the region of Ogaden, Eritrea as well as northern Kenya. It was largely incorporated after the fall of Ethiopia and remains somewhat autonomous. It is the most populated region of Nubia and contains Nubia's largest non-capital city, Mersa ruled by gorkymoo1119.
Darfur represents Nubia's western frontier and was largely unpopulate, and underdeveloped compared to the rest of the Empire. It encompasses a large variety of terrain including the real-life Darfur, Bahr el Ghaza, the eastern half of the Central African Republic, a small amount of land in the northeast of the Democratic republic of Congo as well as eastern Chad. Several attempts have been made to populate the region however most have ultimately failed. After planning in mid-2020, many towns were founded there, helping ensure claims to the west and populate the region. One of Nubia's most active and large towns is now located there, named Suna.
Main article: Nubian Arabia
Nubian Arabia represents the Nubian land in Arabia, the furthest eastern land of Nubia, changing often due to the loss and gain of towns regularly. In recent history it mostly includes southern Arabia, especially the gained from the Yemen-Nubia Conflict, and later expansion to that territory, especially northwards towards Mecca.
The Nubian economy is currently quite small. There are currently no significant international shops within Nubia, however, a few small shops exist in towns to serve the local populous. Many goods are bought and sold from the government to generate revenue. The real estate industry within El Obeid and several other cities provide much of the income for the nation. In addition, Nubia's extensive infrastructure network gives it a unique advantage in the animal trade compared to other towns in the region with most deliveries coming out of Ed Damer. Sand mining operation and concrete production continue to be a profitable and stable industry within Nubia however Illegal sand mining are just as much of a threat to Nubia as it is to any other nation. Much of the funding for the expansion of Nubian towns comes from the national bank which gives the nation additional leverage over its towns. Despite its relatively stable economy, Nubia fails to attract many wealthy investors in the region and has less claims than any other nation in the top 10 most populous nations.
Twomoo1119 had initially joined the server upon the request of an online friend, CasualNuker, with whom he had played on another towny server that had died. The plan was to set up a Wakandan nation with El Obeid to be a desert fortress and another town, located around modern-day Illicit, to become the capital. Getting to the site where El Obeid was located in January of 2019 was rather difficult. Lower Egypt only had several towns and Upper Egypt had none. There were no ice roads or canals crossing the Sahara either. For a relatively poor citizen who had to scavenge for their own food, the Sahara posed a rather frightening obstacle. Luckily for twomoo1119, and Skyocity, another online friend who had joined him, some kind Judean bestowed upon them 32 loaves of bread. Upon reaching the Sahel, bounds of melons were discovered and the food situation was no longer a major concern. A temporary mine and underground base were constructed slightly north of modern day Wad Madani in order to afford a town.
Prior to creation of Sudan
El Obeid began to rapidly expand within its first couple of weeks, seeking as much aid as possible from France and also becoming a colony of Austria Hungary to gain more aid. After a couple of weeks, El Obeid began to pursue its own nation after it became apparent that Wakanda would not work out well. Unfortunately, nation prices rose from 512 to 1024 during this period making the task much more difficult to accomplish. During this time, El Obeid joined the African Union and also joined and left the nation of Yemen a couple of times.
On February 16th 2019, the nation of Sudan was founded after twomoo1119 gathered enough gold for it. Sudan quickly attempted to secure its holdings by creating several towns towards its west, none of which lasted very long. An Nahud was one of the biggest of these with its ruins still visible today a bit west of El Obeid. Twomoo1119 quickly got to work dissolving the AU’s democracy and inserting himself, along with the leaders of Oyo and Numidia as the Oligarchs of the AU. With the creation of Kebri Dehar, Sudan attempted to secure its control over Ethiopia and its Terracotta deposits however ran into disputes of the region with both Somalia, another African Union nation which formed around March 5th 2019 as well as the town of Tsana, which would later become the capital of Ethiopia on March 18th 2019. Due to concerns over Somalia’s aggressively expansionist nature, Sudan backed the town of Nairobi in a slight border dispute. This escalated the issue far beyond what it needed to be however did put a stop to Somalia’s expansion in the region; despite this, Sudan did back down from the conflict. In addition, during this time, Sudan fought the town of Yap during the Siege of Nairobi, the first victory won by an entirely Sudanese force. Sudan then entered into a brief conflict with Ethiopia which came out victorious managing to officially maintain control of its terracotta deposits. Following this conflict, many AU member states began to go inactive including Oyo, while Numidia joined the GRE. Both Ethiopia and Somalia began to shrink and Sudan was left as the dominant power in the region. Following this, Sudan turned inwards and began to focus on improving the capital, El Obeid, before twomoo1119’s temporary 3 week absence.
Upon return from his summer vacation, twomoo1119 returned to find a mostly inactive and dead Sudan. In order to help revive the nation and also symbolically cast off the French, the nation was renamed to Nubia. In addition, El Obeid saw increased recruiting in order to produce more potential mayors to revive the nation. In addition, a colony was founded in Antarctica, Molodezhnaya (then named Nubian Antarctic). Although it saw little success, it did become the source for the vast majority of Nubia’s ice during the creation of many of its ice roads. Due to all the recruiting, a vast amount of gold began to flow into Nubia’s banks allowing El Obeid to expand further as well as large savings to be accumulated. During this time, Nubia applied to join the GRE but was rejected due to its poor relations with France.
Conflicts with Ancient Egypt
Hostility towards Ancient Egypt began after Ancient Egypt stole the town of Le Caire from Nubia, a town that was in Nubian territory. Upon a meeting to talk about it, louisdek killed twomoo1119 during a lag spike. This resulted in Nubia declaring war on the town of Osiris and later, once making their own nation, Ancient Egypt as a whole. Upon entry into the GRE, Nubia attempted to settle the conflict with a simple peace treaty, however, due to louisdek’s violation of the majority of the terms in the treaty by the next morning, Nubia went back to war with Ancient Egypt. After this, there was a sharp spike in action for about a week. Since then the conflict has mostly died down with both sides remaining extremely hostile. Minor skirmishes have continued however Nubia has turned its focus elsewhere.
Due to all the gold that began to build up in Nubia, as well as the new potential mayors that Nubia saw, Nubia began to see a sudden growth beginning around late October. Several suburbs were established around El Obeid allowing the area to become highly developed. While Nubia flourished, the central bank did not. Several projects, such as the Palace and the Red Nile expansion began to eat away at it while grants for the expansion of Nubian towns began to slowly increase. In addition, income from recruiting began to slowly decrease. During this period, Kabashi, the second-largest, and the formerly loyal town left without explanation and became very hostile towards Nubia. The Nubian Renaissance came to a close around the purchasing of Ethiopia. All Ethiopian towns were then integrated into Nubia and the nation was moved south to lake Nyasa, in hopes that it would become a colony. Although this was great for expansion, it put a rather heavy strain on the central bank and forced a temporary cessation of grants for the expansion of towns. This resulted in a slowing of growth of many Nubian towns and thus, the end of the Nubian Renaissance. Regardless, this purchase marks the beginning of the First Nubian Empire.
Nubia in the Greater Roman Empire
Around the beginning of December, Nubia applied for a second time into the GRE, after being rejected due to concerns over their relations with France. This time, Nubia was accepted. Following the January 2020 elections, Nubia was found to have made their mayors vote in a certain way, resulting in twomoo1119 becoming one of the Praetors, despite receiving very few high ranked votes from outside of Nubia as well as Noahser becoming Magister Militium. These actions have been quite controversial and condemned by other members of the GRE, particularly Persia.
Due to strained finances and weakening activity, Nubia entered a period of decreased activity from late December to mid January. During this time, Nubia sought to expand diplomatically and politically as opposed to the funding of new towns in order to keep costs low. In early January, Nubia came into conflict with Victorian Congo over a border dispute. Tensions have mostly died down however the borders remain somewhat unclear. Throughout January, Nubia had begun to lay the groundwork to recruit more active players. The remarkable success of Saint Allison alongside the required increase in recruitment in El Obeid led to an increase in the number of active players as well as the number of towns in Nubia.
United African Politics
Following 7iiiii's departure from the server, TateJackson was appointed as the new king of Nyasa. Around the same time, Nyasa joined United Africa and quickly dominated their politics, becoming the leader of the Union within a week. Both Nyasa, Gold Coast and Nubia had secured political dominance over the union, with the goal of effectively subjecting the non-Nubian west African nations.
Collapse of the First Nubian Empire
The Loss of Nubian Central Africa
On the 29th of February, 2020, the nations of Nyasa, and their subjects, Congo and Kalahari exited the First Nubian Empire. Due to the heavy ties between the communities, this greatly demoralized the rest of the population - especially Emperor twomoo1119 who had become extremely pessimistic about the Empire's future and turned to an isolationist approach to attempt to hold the empire together. While this initial succession may have been a small issue, other issues facing the empire quickly began to rise to the surface.
Although the Empire had seen substantial growth in the past month, becoming the largest nation by population for a short period of time, the central bank was extremely low on money and spending every ingot it got, keeping only a small amount in savings. Colonies, such as Gold Coast had cost the nation huge amounts of money leaving many of the towns of Nubia Proper to fund themselves, as opposed to relying on the government for funding as many towns had previously done.
Alongside funding, several political questions divided the empire. The establishment of a democratic system had been in the works for over a month however the older, and more conservative members of the Nubian community still preferred the monarchy that had existed for over a year. Furthermore, a corruption scandal involving twomoo1119 in the March Elections in the Greater Roman Empire served to reduce the popularity of the Emperor, especially with the newer players. The poor timing of both events meant that twomoo1119's popularity with the entire Nubian population had greatly diminished. The quickly enacted reforms by twomoo1119 following the succession of Nyasa had failed to prove popular with many of the Nubian elite and several important figures left the nation following their enactment.
Many African nations had taken advantage of the opportunity to rid themselves of Nubian Influence and Nubia's remaining colonies were questionably loyal. It was widely believed that Yemen, which was already by far the most autonomous of Nubia's colonies would take the opportunity to declare full independence if immediate action was not taken. Furthermore, a replacement was required for the leader of the Gold Coast; a loyal and active member capable of leading the colony was however, difficult to find.
The Loss of Mersa and South Mersa
On the 4th of March, 2020, the town of Mersa (and its proxy town, South Mersa), one of the three metropolises in the nation, joined the Yemeni Empire, saying it was in protest of Emperor twomoo1119's reforms as well as the ongoing corruption scandal. Colloquially referred to as "Mexit," (as a play on the real life ongoing event of Brexit) this event shattered what little confidence remained in the Nubian government, and the people of Nubia.
The Abdication of Twomoo1119
On the 5th of March, 2020, twomoo1119 handed over the town of El Obeid and the nation of Nubia to Raining_Oranges, Sultan of the Yemeni Empire. This was done as a last ditch attempt to preserve Nubia's colonial empire as Yemen had not yet cast Nubia off, despite expressing many doubts towards it.
Under Yemen's Control
Shortly after receiving Nubia, Raining_Oranges installed VladimirVI as the next Emperor. Little focus was put on recruiting under VladimirVI and a new, unused shopping district was constructed in El Obeid. Due to a significant decline in population in both El Obeid and St. Allison, Mersa became an influential power holder in the region and Nubia relied on it for most of its recruiting and population, with the one town holding about 60% of the national population. Under VladimirVI, Nubia was re-branded as a Caliphate and many of the former elite were moved into lower ranking positions while newer members considered loyal and friends to VladimirVI quickly rose to the highest ranks in Nubia. VladimirVI quickly became extremely unpopular and Mersa left Nubia again; VladimirVI abdicated shortly after.
Zovely did little in the way of anything and handed off they keys of power to gorkymoo119 and the town of Mersa. While Nubia was technically ruled from El Obeid by Zovely, this was not the case in practice. Most of Vlad's reforms were undone during this period and a democratic system was formed.
The Ethiopian Revolt and MagicMoose
The nation of Ethiopia was founded by 57gorky on May 4th 2020 after VladimirVI returned to Yemen. It was feared that VladimirVI might be made Emperor of Nubia again and many Nubian mayors wanted a backup plan. About 1 week later, twomoo1119 began talking with the Nubian Mayors again and convinced many of them to join Ethiopia. After a few towns had joined, Raining_Oranges replaced Zovely with MagicMoose, fearing that twomoo1119 would not remain loyal to the Yemeni Empire. The majority of Nubian towns joined Ethiopia following this causing MagicMoose to abdicate less than two weeks after becoming Emperor, twomoo1119 was installed in his place.
The Ethiopian Question
Although twomoo1119 had regained control of Nubia, the future of Ethiopia was uncertain. Many Ethiopian towns enjoyed their system of government and were content to remain in the nation. Ethiopian Emperor, gorkymoo119 and Nubian Emperor, twomoo1119 had planned a vote to see whether the nations would remain in a union, unite under Ethiopia or unite under Nubia. After some private discussion, twomoo1119 and gorkymoo119 agreed to unite under Nubia provided that he be payed back in full for the nation and that the Ethiopian system of government would be preserved. On May 21st, 2020 the nation of Nubia annexed Ethiopia back into itself. This drastically increased the size of Nubia and added many more residents as well as reunited the community. Nubia left the Yemeni Empire on the 22nd of May, 2020.
Disputes With Yemen
For more information regarding this, see: Yemen-Nubia Conflict
Following Nubia's withdrawal from the Yemeni Empire, the nation experienced a short period of unrest as certain individuals within the nation had been upset with the resulting situation. The nation quickly stabilized and focus was turned to a potential war with Yemen. Although no declaration of war was made by either side, large amounts of toxicity, propaganda as well as occasional raiding occurred. On June 2nd, 2020, Nubia occupied western Yemen in response to a raid. Following this incident, any remaining diplomatic relations between the nations were severed. This situation occurred until June 20th when the town of Mersa attempted to make a suburb/proxy town across the red sea. Yemen sent forces into the area to prevent the foundation of the town however they were ultimately driven out by Sri Lankan mercenaries. Despite the victory, Nubia decided against making the town over the protest of a certain individual within the nation. A relative peace was achieved between the two nations on the grounds of "Can we just end this shit?" and "I just wanna build with my friends." Since then, the leaders have been relatively neutral and hostility between nation members has decreased dramatically. Throughout this period, Nubia continued to climb in population going from 245 residents to 504 residents between May 22nd and June 22nd of 2020.
The Purchase of Zambie
On August 3rd 2020, the nation of Zambie was bought from Zeleph0 for about 550 gold by a Nubian resident from Suna, MasterNathan, with help from Emperor twomoo1119. Later that day, after a vote amongst the Nubian Ministers, Zambie was allowed to join The Second Nubian Empire, and proceeded to.
The nation would go on to take Councillor of Suna, Vague141, with it, to help the nation leader. They helped the nation slowly grow, with small amounts of help from the Nubian government, such as Minister of Municipal Development gorkymoo1119 helping them recruit.
Main article: The Dharug-Kraftier Rebellion
On August 13th, the towns Dharug and Kraftier rebelled from Nubia, joining Ethiopia. They were already strongly disliked in Nubia due to their constant arguments with popular Nubians, however at the time the Nubian government stopped Nubians from attacking them, but due to the fact they had left they discontinued this discouragement of attacks.
The same day Kraftier left, there were numerous small raids/incidents there, with at least 1 death on the side of Kraftier. Later on the same week, these would become battles, such as the Battle of Gizmo and Second Battle of Kraftier.
The Nubian government launched a plan to prevent a rebel nation being made, by sneaking the Nubian towns of Gizmo and St. Allison in, and convincing Kobikraft and TheSuperGamer205 to pay Nexus_Hype, Mayor of St. Allison 800g to make a nation, but instead of making one they would rejoin Nubia. Over the period of two days, this operation was carried out, and became a success, giving much pride to the members of the Nubian nation, and its Empire.
Main article: The Kraftier Raid
Kraftier was also insided, with help from Tafffy, by the Nubians, and had all of its residents kicked and permissions toggled off, and the town was quickly greifed due to how hated Kobikraft was on the server.
After looking for a nation for some time, TheSuperGamer205 came across Kosovo, which was being sold for about 300 gold by the GRE, more specifically CorruptedGreed (the national leader). They purchased the nation, and, moved the capital to Frog Moore so they could then move it to Dharug, and so they could start the nation between one another.
Battle of Kindu and Kigali
Following the creation of Kindu by Sudan on January 3rd, 2021, it became apparent that Nubia was not doing enough to combat Sudan's growth, as such, a series of raids were conducted almost nightly for over a week, managing to flip the towns of Kindu and Kigali from Sudan to Nubia and Katanga.
The Exit of Zambie from the Second Nubian Empire
Little is known about the exact timing talks of leaving the Second Nubian Empire began, however it is suspected it was a few days before the elections, as 57billy, Emperor of Zambie and MasterNathan, assistant of 57billy, left the running for Minister Positions. This was seen as suspicious by gorkymoo1119, who asked why, and 57billy responded that he 'wanted to focus on Zambie'.
Despite this, gorkymoo1119 messaged twomoo1119 about it, worrying about the future of Nubian relations with Zambie. It was worried about Zambie's loyalty to Nubia before this event, however the concern was dismissed, due to twomoo1119 needing to be able to focus on the ongoing elections during the last week of August 2020.
Gizmo left Nubia and joined Zambie just before the elections, blaming it on being annoyed by StarKiller1744 and others, and making him have real life issues. This made concerns about Zambie's independence go into the public eye, however was still being discussed in private between gorkymoo1119 and twomoo1119, wanting to contain the situation.
Discussion with Nubia
On September 1st 2020, after twomoo1119 announced the election results for the next term, the town of Kyoga left to Zambie. This was attempted to be used against them by rivals of 57billy, but to little success. Soon after, twomoo1119 and Mengan_, the newly elected Minister of Foreign Affairs, were added to a discord groupchat by MasterNathan, that had Mayor of Gizmo Yoshigamer1298, Mayor of Kyoga blackphoenix1011, Emperor of Zambie 57billy and assistant to Emperor, MasterNathan, in it. Twomoo1119 added gorkymoo1119 to the group, to help the Nubians discuss what's happening with Zambie.
Zambie's government sent a file in the discord groupchat that listed all the reasons they believed they had to leave the Second Nubian Empire, mostly surrounding the allegations of racism coming from StarKiller1744 , ArcaPlays and Noahser. They also blamed it on the Nubian policy of mass recruitment, saying it 'overcrowds towns'.
The Nubians made a response to this, saying that the levels of racism from the 3 stated, whilst an issue, is not as much from other nations, and is mostly humorous in comparison. They accepted the mass recruitment claim, however argued that towns affected accepted those people into the towns, and could have just said no. The government of Zambie, more specifically, MasterNathan, stated that this was no excuse.
After much debate, they officially left the Second Nubian Empire, with MasterNathan stating them leaving was not up for debate by the Nubians. MasterNathan put their declaration of independence in Nubian private channels made for citizens. Soon after this, twomoo1119 told them the border was at the equator, and they'd do what they could to ensure their influence over any border violations. After this, the Nubians left the groupchat.
Gizmo rejoins Nubia
After some discussion between the Mayor of Gizmo, Yoshigamer1298, Emperor of Nubia, twomoo1119 and Mayor of St. Allison, Nexus_Hype, Gizmo was bought by Nexus_Hype for about 280 gold. It was given to assistant of Nexus_Hype, Sp0f, and became a proxy town of St. Allison, comparable to South Allison. After purchase, the town rejoined Nubia after the initial crisis prior to independence. Former Mayor Yoshigamer1298 then went and made Afrabano Kingdom for Zambie, in non-disputed territory. Despite this, Nubian disputes continued with Zambie, due to the towns of Kyoga and Kasteel remaining within Nubian borders.
The Purchase of Chad
Three weeks after Zambie had left the Second Nubian Empire, the town of South Suna informed the Nubian Emperor, twomoo1119, that they would be purchasing the nation of Chad, now renamed to East Africa, from __Tomm, with Zambien support. Despite several attempts at negotiation, no progress was made and South Suna purchased Chad several days later without reaching an agreement with Nubia or its parent town of Suna and was promptly isolated from both communities, especially after several small incidents between the two nations in the following week.
The Kyogan Return
In late September and early October of 2020, the nation of Zambie had began to go relatively inactive. They lost around 80% of their population, and many of their towns. Other Zambians became inactive too, leaving the semi-active towns of Kyoga and Miro there.
Kyoga had remained relatively in touch with the Nubian community, and was friendly with many members. On the 12th of October 2020, twomoo1119 suggested to blackphoenix1011 he rejoin Nubia due to the inactivity of Zambie. After a small friendly discussion, Kyoga rejoined, much to the excitement of Nubian citizens, due to the fact that there was now one less border disputed territory.
The Rebound of October and November
After much of a decline of population and territory in the month and so prior, the Nubian nation started expanding rapidly once more population wise. Towns like Suna and Turkana started rising in population once more, with the help of Emperor twomoo1119 and Minister of Municipal Development gorkymoo1119. More towns were founded in Nubian Arabia and the lower Darfur region, helping to ensure claims there stayed Nubian, especially as a result of the recent border violation from Nigeria of Croma.
As a result of this, Nubia became much more hopeful for the future, and the loss of all Zambien border violations increased this. Much more of the Nubian population became active, despite the rest of the server losing activity and population.
Addition of North Greenland
After the purchase of North Greenland by karlraven06 and Kallus66, former Nubians, twomoo1119 discussed the idea of closer relations and staying in the Nubian community. The leadership of North Greenland liked this, and requested to join the Second Nubian Empire. After a vote in the Nubian Lower House, they were officially welcomed into the Second Nubian Empire.
Addition of Baghermi
Around 2 weeks after the addition of North Greenland to the Second Nubian Empire, the idea of speaking with the leadership of Baghermi was discussed in the Nubian government, after an initial suggestion from gorkymoo1119. It was agreed that speaking with Baghermi about closer relations, such as joining the Empire, would be a good idea. Twomoo1119 spoke with Yoda2301, leader of Baghermi, on the 19th of October 2020, and he requested to join. As per standard precedure, twomoo1119 opened a vote on it in the lower house. The vote passed unanimously with no dispute from any Nubian Lower House members, and Baghermi was added to the Second Nubian Empire.
The Reintegration of Zambie
Zambie had went relatively inactive throughout October and early November, falling to 1 town and 1 citizen, with many former Zambien towns moving to Kasai, another Nubian province. Yoshigamer1298 had continued to be in contact with 57billy after leaving Zambie, and 57billy eventually offered him a deal to purchase the nation of Zambie for 125 gold.
After receiving this offer, Yoshigamer1298 went to the Nubian foreign affairs front (Mengan_, twomoo1119 and gorkymoo1119) and discussed the idea of making it a member of the Second Nubian Empire yet again. This was supported by the Nubian government very soon, and on the 16th of November, Yoshigamer1298 purchased the nation and a vote was made in the Nubian government, where it was agreed Zambie could join.
Addition of Svalbard
Following several leadership changes and rebellions, faukiz_d, the new leader of the nation of Svalbard had requested to join the Second Nubian Empire. This was unanimously approved on the 27th of November, 2020, as the nation had previously had close ties to Nubia and was geographically close to North Greenland.
During November and December 2020, Nubian Arabia was expanded after 2 more towns were placed (Asir and Dawasir). This was whilst Yemen was growing in inactivity again, much to the displeasure of the Nubian government.
Yemeni Emperor, Raining_Oranges, saw this expansion and attempted to ask for the towns to join Yemen. However, this was refused. As a result of this, he would message Lopile, mayor of the biggest town in Nubian Arabia, Sanaa about joining. However, this failed, with Lopile blocking Raining_Oranges. Raining_Oranges would also attempt to message gorkymoo1119 about it, but nothing came out of it.

The Pax Africanum

Treaty of Mersa
Main article: Treaty of Mersa
On the 13th of June 2020, a treaty was made and signed between Nubia and allies to recognise Nubia's claims in the Horn of Africa and Arabia, as well as Somalia's claims in the same region. It was later signed by Kanem and Guinea, who were also friendly with Nubia.
Main article: Nubia-Svalbard relations
Nubia and Svalbard have not had bad relations, however they formally had neutral relations. Svalbard supported Nubia against Sudan in the war against Sudan, as one of the first nations to do so. Their former ally/controller, Nordaustlandet had also helped Nubia in the Battle of Sanaa, during the Yemen-Nubia Conflict.
Svalbard would go onto join the Second Nubian Empire in late November 2020, with hopes Nubia would help them regrow. This was after a push from Maple_d, due to his relations with notable individuals in Nubia, such as Minister of Municipal Development gorkymoo1119.
Within the Greater Roman Empire
As a former member of the Greater Roman Empire (GRE), Nubia still somewhat aligns herself with its members. Numidia is considered its closest ally in the GRE, due to Nubia's proximity and historical membership in the African Union with the nation. However, Nubia also considers nations such as Israel as an ally within the GRE.
Main article: The Sudanese Rebellion
Sudan is made up from the towns of Dharug, Frog Moore and Kraftier. They rebelled from Nubia due to them being heavily disliked in the nation, and have, as a consequence lost over 800 gold to Nubia and allies, during Operations such as Operation Despot and in fighting.
This lead to a large scale war being declared by Sudan, despite Nubia already fighting them.
The following are a list of former enemies of Nubia, with history into them being an enemy. They now have a neutral relation with them.
One of Nubia's only former major enemies was the nation of Ancient Egypt. See the section on Conflicts with Ancient Egypt for more details. Nubia has also involved themselves in some of the Greater Roman Empire's current wars including those against Bosnia and Ottoman Rumelia, due to Ancient Egypt formerly being a colony of Bosnia.
Main article: Nubia-Yemen relations
After independence, Nubia wished to remain neutral with Yemen, even to an extent friendly. However, due to an alleged attack by Nubia, Yemen launched an offensive on Nubia at the town of El Daein, starting the Yemen-Nubia Conflict, which had somewhat started verbally and politically on the 23rd of May 2020, however fighting in-game physically only happened from the 2nd of June 2020 to the 20th of June 2020, in a 18 day high death disagreement. Since, Nubian claims to western Yemen are disputed by Yemen, however the nation has went relatively inactive due to Raining_Oranges' friends quitting the server.
Politics and government
The viewpoints of many Nubian citizens are strongly divided, which can be seen in the monthly Nubian Elections.

The elections take about a week in total including campaigning, voting and getting ready for the next government of the nation. The elections for all Minister positions takes place about 5-7 days before the end of the month, when the elections happen, and end of term of the current holder. They usually take place around the first of the month.
All candidates for Minister positions must alert the Emperor of them wishing to run within the election 'weak', and candidate applications end as soon as voting starts, or else the player will not be allowed to run due to it being too late.
This lasts up until the election results are out for every one of the Minister positions. Candidates can post any form of propaganda, poster, text or other and can campaign elsewhere.
The voting lasted 24 hours, using an alternative voting system as it has since independence from Yemen. Prior to independence, it was a first past the post voting system. The voters, also known as the Lower House, must pick each candidate in the order of how much they like them, and how much they want in government.

(For more information on the Nubian flag, see the Flag of Nubia wikipage)
The Nubian flag is a vertical tricolor/tricolour. The most speculated symbolism of the flag is that the fly end of the flag is dyed brown to represent the people of the East African coast. The middle band is also dyed white as to represent the White Nile River which flows through the center of the nation. The black band represents the fertility of the Nile River and the land that sits by it.
The flag of the Nubian Antarctic Territories includes a blue circle in its center. While having no official meaning, it is used to represent the abundance of water, the cold weather as well as being simply a symbol commonly used to represent Antarctica in game.
Nubia supports a large amount of infrastructure relative to its size, especially for those traveling North or South. The Great Rift Works were completed as of the middle of August allowing travelers to boat directly from Alexandria, through El Obeid, to Mozambique via a series of lakes, rivers, and newly constructed canals. As of late August, ice roads were constructed to connect Slime City, Malakal, Al Golem and Ellesmera to El Obeid as well as a direct connection from El Obeid to Corsica, and the Wider Americo-European ice road network. Nubia's ice network extends into the Ethiopia region and deep into Central Africa as well.
The Nubian Antarctic's entry into the Nubian Empire came a day after a visit from the mayor, Shmalter, (Also known as "Walter,") who concluded that closer ties to Nubia would greatly benefit both Nubia and his town formerly called Arcane, now called Harepan, the capital of the Nubian Antarctic . The nation, now called Molodezhnaya, is now ruled by TransientBeing and is mostly inactive.
On August 30th, the nation of India joined the Second Nubian Empire, after a private discussion with twomoo1119. The leaders were former residents of Mersa, one of the larger and more influential towns of Nubia. Nubia has since helped develop the nation, and sorted disputes between other nations and them.
North Greenland was bought by former Nubian residents karlraven06 and their friend Kallus666. After a talk with Nubian Emperor twomoo1119, they requested to join the Second Nubian Empire. Once a vote was held in the Minister voting channel and the Lower House voting channel, they were welcomed into the Empire on the 9th of October 2020.
Baghermi entered the Second Nubian Empire on the 20th of October 2020, after voting passed in the Minister voting channel. This was after a suggestion by gorkymoo1119 that they speak to the Baghermi leadership about their relations. Baghermi is located on the western border of Nubia, with little foreign relations prior to the entry to the Empire.
Kasai entered the Second Nubian Empire on the 6th of November 2020, after talk between twomoo1119 and Vogotli about the creation of a nation with the town of Motherland. After formation, a post was put up asking to authorise the entry of Kasai to the Second Nubian Empire, with all Ministers agreeing on allowing their entry. They were used to regain control over central Africa and surroundings, after the exit of Zambie from the Empire. Many towns formerly in Zambie joined.
August 3rd - September 1st 2020
On August 3rd 2020, the nation of Zambie, with capital Saint-Victor joined The Second Nubian Empire. It quickly grew, with its leader MasterNathan being a previous resident of the Nubian town, Suna. It allowed for the Nubians to secure dominance over Namibia/Zimbabwe/Mozambique area, growing to 6 towns and 13 residents, making it one of the largest nations within Southern Africa at the moment.
On 1st of September 2020, Zambie left the Second Nubian Empire, right after the end of the elections, likely in connection to StarKiller1744 being elected, due to a strong rivalry existing between him and 57billy.
After leaving, a border crisis was created due to the towns of Kasteel, Gizmo and Kyoga being in Nubian proper claims. Since, Kyoga and Gizmo rejoined, and Kasteel fell.
November 16th 2020 - Present
On the 16th of November 2020, a purchase agreement was made between 57billy and Yoshigamer1298 for Yoshigamer1298 to purchase the nation of Zambie and capital, Moba. Yoshigamer1298 gave his town of Dawasir to dsimon44_, before the purchase actually happened and he was made the nation leader. After the purchase, 57billy moved to Los Angeles.
A vote was held in the government voting channel, where it was unanimously agreed that Zambie be allowed to re-enter the Second Nubian Empire. The announcement was made that Zambie had re-entered the Empire later. The nation of Zambie was now considerably smaller than back in August, due to many towns of Zambie relocating to the other Nubian subject of Kasai, as they wanted to stay within the Second Nubian Empire.
Once the vote had passed, a small celebration was held and picture taken showing gorkymoo1119, Mengan_, twomoo1119 and Yoshigamer1298 with Nubian banners in their hands at Zambie, outside of the shop of Brobbo41, a Kasai mayor.
In early January 2021, the nation was renamed to 'Katanga' after being 4.1ed. The Nubian constitution was updated appropriately.
Svalbard joined the Second Nubian Empire on the 27th of November 2020, after final discussion agreed upon between faukiz_d (then named Afaukiz) and twomoo1119. This was after discussion throughout most of November.
The subjects listed below are all currently former members of the First Nubian Empire. As of present, only 1 nation has left the Second Nubian Empire, Zambie, however later rejoined after being purchased again by the Nubians.
Nyasa was formed in the middle of December of 2019 and quickly grew to 100 residents in slightly over a month, making Nyasa the second-largest nation in Africa by population, after Nubia itself. They were intentionally set up as a puppet state to secure Nubia's southern border as well as their hegemony over the East African coast and reached over 100 residents at their height, however, left Nubia in late February 2020. The nation is now the Swiss Colony of Zanzibar, lead by JackJackson.
The Adal Sultanate was formed shortly after the Nubian acquisition of Ethiopia, in late December, 2019. In order to secure their hegemony over the East African coast, they were invited into the Nubian Empire and gladly accepted. As of early February, the nation leader, Incarnation, moved elsewhere and the nation lost all its towns (Aden and Rumah, who formed Yemen, another later Nubian province) effectively killing it. The nation finally fell in June 2020 and its land was divided between Somalia and Nubia.
Gold Coast was a short lived puppet state established by Nubia with the goal of consolidating control over West Africa and the rest of United Africa. The colony, which saw limited success, was abandoned, and later sold off after the collapse of the first Nubian empire.
Main article: Nubia-Yemen relations
Yemen was formed in late January, 2020 from a formerly a town from Adal Sultanate, another Nubian province. After some negotiation and a raid from Grand Australia, Yemen decided to join the Nubian Empire. Yemen went on to expand its influence and eventually incorporated the remnants of the First Nubian Empire, including Nubia itself, following its collapse. Following this, Nubia fought a brief conflict with the Yemen Empire to regain and ensure independence, due to the Yemeni challenging of it.
