The English name comes from the clan name of the first Qonklese emperor of the Dlyrn Dynasty *qˤonʔ and the verb "to watch over" *k-l̥ak-s, literally "the Dlyrn will watch over (the realm)".
Qonklaks historically was a very war-mongering people. Having just achieved Bronze Age status 200 years prior, they’ve managed to vassalize neighbouring cultures within 20 years of their formation of the first Qonklese dynasty.
In 1772 BCE, the first evidence of a Qonklese organized military was found in modern day X. The army was used to fight in X.
In the events of the Warring States Period, according to legend, the Qonklese people made first contact with a Xynden in 1204 BCE. This was potentially the first time Xynden “city tree” culture has spread from the Xynden islands.
During the next 1000 years, Qonklaks established first contact with their northern Qgamic neighbours, spreading their Qonklese Kweonzia, a form of logographic writing, to them. making them the second literate civilization that has not been vassalized by Qonklaks in Soltenna.
58 CE, Letsatia conquers the Lugid dynasty of Altha in a colonial campaign. Qonklaks decides to launch an attack to defend themselves against the Letsatian threat. However, these attacks bled the National Treasury dry, and Qonklaks fractured into five warring states in a period known as the Five Kingdom Land Hoard.
During the Republican Revolutions in 1903, Officials decided to reintroduce Qonklese Logograms into daily use. This was further reinforced by the fascist dictator Ci Dûw, as he made learning Qonklese Logograms mandatory. After the downfall of the Republic, the Kuulist QonCom Party sought to remove the logograms completely, but they decided to keep it, as many have already fully converted to the script.
On September 13th, 2005, five days after the downfall of the Helsonian Union, the QonCom Party, for the first time, allowed democratic elections, and allowed opposing political factions into the legislature by rewriting the People's Constitution. In 2009, the Republican Party won the majority of the seats in the National People's Assembly, and QonCom relinquished power through peaceful means. However, due to a corruption scandal uncovered by the independent Qonklese Anti-Corruption Agency, the Party was removed from the government, and was barred from re-entering elections the following term. Support for the QonCom Party sky-rocketed as Chairman Qō Daśâw vowed to remove corruption from Qonklese politics. In 2013, the QonCom Party won 1,339 of the 2000 seats in the National People's Assembly. In 2017, QonCom won only 984 of the 2000 seats in the National People's Assembly, requiring them to co-operate with the Qonklese Union Party and the Qonklese Imperial Party just to make the 1000 seats mark.
On October 12, General Mâw Khō of the Qonklese Peacekeeping force initiated a coup against the rule QonCom Party. In just two days, the General managed to control the entire eastern regions of Qonklaks, with remaining QonCom members fleeing to the east. Together, they formed the Federal Army. Shortly after retaking North Qonklaks, the General was found dead in a garbage chute with three irregularly sized holes in his abdomen. With no standing orders, the QPKF could only stand by as the Federal Army retook Jikring. President Rā-rûw assumed power as there was no immediate successor to the General.
Qonklaks possesses three Special Administrative Regions:
Qonklaks is in the Soltennan Council comprising of more than X Soltennan states. Today, it has friendly relations with most Sahar nations, except for a few outliers.
Qonklaks, from 1970s onwards, practices a slighty perverse version of internationalism, as it aims to spread the kuulist revolution to every corner of the world, by peaceful means or by force. Today, after the fall of the Kuulist regime, Qonklaks has issued an official apology to every nation it has previously attempted to establish a sphere of influence upon.
Today, Qonklaks provides security to its people and its allies with the Qonklese Peacekeeping Forces, with over 700,000 active personnel and 3 million in reserve.
Science and technology
The official language of Qonklaks is Qonklese, but most L2 speakers learn Terminian and Dhweran.
The people of Qonklaks is slowly becoming more and more atheistic, and is pushing religion away from their daily lives. However, government efforts to re-introduce traditional Qonklese Xenhuism as a religion have been proven quite successful.
The most popular non-lethal sport in Qonklaks is definitely the Way of the Chopstick, or Khwedźjido. Players are armed with two electronic chopsticks with sensors at the end, typically about 10-13 inches long. To score a point, one must attempt to strike the opponent with the sensor end of the chopstick. The more lethal version of this sport is played every year in Qonklese New Year, where two volunteers battle to their deaths with steel pointed chopsticks. Before the match, the two volunteers swear a blood oath to prevent the loser's spirit to haunt the winner in the afterlife. The winner, if still conscious, will be paraded on top of a golden carriage around the city of Jikring. It is considered to be the most honourable thing to die in this competition.
