Yakormonyo comes from two Monyo words, 'ĕakor' (king) and 'monĕo' (land). Its official name is the Democratic Kingdom of Monyo, but is called Yakormonyo to signify the Monarchy.
Prehistory (8th-9th century)
The country now known as Yakormonyo was before one Kavrinh tribe that came from the northern Kavrinia, nowaday Lhavres. There these tribe expanded and split as they created their own unique culture and language, influenced by the nations they passed through while going south. By the late 9th century they stopped going south settled in various places in nowadays Yakormonyo.
Warring States Period (10th-12th century)
Every settlement was called a totu; according to the Historical Records of Yakormonyo there were around one hundred ninety totus. Eventually these totus started to unite into a larger state called a petotu. The Monyo Calendar starts on the formation of the Oti and Onivean petotus in the spring equinox of 1125. By 1170, there were twenty-six petotus. These petotus were always at war with each other, aiming to conquer the entire land. This continued until the first unification, starting the Union Era.
Early Unions (12th-13th century)
In the years 1175 to 1182, the petotu of Pekhsy invaded and annexed the petotus of Avot, Kanyoto, Kaupe, Mussy, Nosai, Onive, Rakhtuh, and Tcosape and split Usotu and Vykhoma with other petotus. The Union of Pekhsypemon, led by Duke Afcatoeu, was a harsh union which used the capital punishment regularly. In 1209 the union collapsed and got conquered by the northern Repoşans four years later. The Repoşotan Union encompassed most of the previous union (except for Onive, who managed to keep their sovereignty), along with the rest of Vykhoma, Yegha, and parts of Oti and Nosai. Duke Korri, the first ruler of Repoşota was more liberal and kind than his predecessor, and started the Golden Age of Art in Yakormonyo, introducing a dichromatic style of painting. The alphabet got reformed into a more artistic one, which was the basis of the current alphabet. In 1237, Duke Korri died of an unknown disease and was replaced by Duke Sekoria-Tatoni. This ruler focused more on literature and his reign became known as the Golden Age of Literature in Yakormonyo, with several philosophers and authors appearing like Otomussi, Kaupe-Rovon, and Yakorca.
In 1252 the growing petotu of Oto Upu under Duke Zaty, after conquering most of Northern Yakormonyo, started an invasion of the Repoşotan Union and Ytauna. Around the same time, the petotus of Pekhsy, Kaupe, and Tcosape declared independence and assisted in the invasion of Repoşota. In 1253 the capital, Usotu was captured and the nation surrendered, creating the Oto Upu Union. This union focused on welfare of the people, and the regions had greater autonomy. Every person was equal, and criminals were dealt with accordingly. In 1269, Duke Sotoyongu-Mussipemon succeded the thrown. Capial punishment was outlawed and the tradition of shuttatu, or leaving the hometown to atone for serious crimes, began.
Three Kingdoms (early 14th century)
In 1287 Ytauna under Duke Şossapomo launched an attack in order to regain territory from Oto Upu. It eventually succeded, and went on to conquer the rest of Oto Upu, with help from Kaupe. This started the period of the Three Kingdoms, with the three great powers at the time, Kaupemussy, Peccy-Onivea, and Ytauna. The Ytaunan Union, spread from northern Hemh to southern Kanyoto, started trades with Cananganam, and under Duke Timon, explored southward in order to mine valuable resources. This union prospered, but cared less about outer regions, and constantly discriminated the northern Vomens. This urged Voma to declare independence in 1326. The Kaupemussy Union under Duchess Kaistra-Korri focused more on expansion, and were the first to colonize the Tumonan peninsula. Avot declared independence in 1319, but eventually was reconquered in 1322. The Peccy-Onivean Union, spread from northern Aisha to southern Siopekha, was nicer to its citizens, and this period is considered the Golden Age of Southern Yakormonyo, with the great dukes, Jiaujejmu, Yaohi-Khemy, and Ziseki. This was also the time Pekhan and Onivean underwent a language reform which regularized most irregular words.
Late Unions ( 14-15th century)
On October 1341, the Ytaunan Union under Duke Skomajesoni declared war on Kaupemussy, which started the Three Kingdoms War. Eventually it ended in 1343 with the Treaty of Fukor, resulting in the dismantling of the Ytaunan Union and the separation of the Peccy-Onivean Union, leaving the Kaupemussy Union as the major power at the time. Kaupemussy, under Duke Yi-Samejkhemy, largely stopped expansion along the Sioce River, now focusing on developing its agriculture and cities.
In 1367, Aphucke and Onive declared war on Pekhsypemon. Kaupemussy subsequently declared war on Aphucke. Aphucke's growing military power, along with Onivea's help and Tumona's declaration of independence, eventually overcame both Pekhsypemon and Kaupemussy. The Aphuckean Union was more fierce and the its autonomous regions of were given less freedom. Because of this Pekhsy, lead by Jemesami, and Mussy, led by Korri-Rovon, declared independence in 1385, supported by Tumona. This lead to the Aphucke-Tumonan War, which ended in 1393, when Aphucke surrendered. The Treaty of Mussy gave Tumona the territories of Avot and Harrahua, while Pekhsypemon and Mussipemon gained independence as the Sipeman Union. This left the Tumonan and Otofu Unions as the major powers at the time.
In 1402 Ytauna invaded the Kaman Free State and the Otofu Union, quickly gaining control of Pity and Pepa. Tumona intervened in 1407, and Ytauna surrendered the next month. The Treaty of Pepa was signed, giving Kama more territory and creating a buffer state between Otofu and Ytauna. Avot was given independence in 1413 as thanks for help in the war.
Around the mid-16th century, the Pekhahuas were conquered by the Empire of Yahara, creating the semi-autonomous Duchy of Sígüpëxü. A few years later, the duchy started to expand north and the Ottos , along with southern Voma were annexed and became the Duchy of Ësnvøërvërg. Northern Voma meanwhile was killed with a local plague in the 1540’s, whose land eventually became repopulated by the Fals Empire. WIP
Independence from Yahara
By the early 16th century, suppression of the Monyos’ culture caused independence movements to arise. It started in 1501 with the Jemy Revolt, led by Jemehua Mussipemon, followed by the 1503 Ävon Revolt, the 1504 Vommä Revolt and and the 1507 Peccy Revolt. It was followed by a few years of peace from 1508 to 1510, but in 1511, the murder of Jemehua Mussipemon caused more individuals to revolt. In 1512, the Duchy of Vommä declared their independence, but their leader, Vomahua Ava was assassinated and the rebellious state capitulated. The revolts continued until the Empire’s collapse in 1515, when the Far Northern Duchies of Sígüpëxü and Ësnvøërvërg successfully declared their independence and were able to fight against several attempts by the Duchy of Celebrezstuerg to conquer them. The language was brought back, and the Duchies were renamed to Peccy and Otofu respectively. This nation then started trades with neighboring duchies, especially the Duchy of Hakalon. Through the Treaty of Jemesami in 1707, the two duchies were united in a personal union, although it was only made official through the Treaty of Oni in 1761, creating the United Duchies of Peccy-Otofu (UDPO).

Throughout the early 20th century, Kúúlist ideologies have emerged. The Yakormonyo Kúúlist Forces then was formed under the leadership of Tumahua Korri-Şopomo. In 1916, the nation underwent a civil war and government was overthrown the next year, creating the Union of Kúúlist Monyo Duchies (UKMD) led by Tumahua Maiheroa. This nation was mostly in isolation, except for a close relationship with Heoroma, whom it supplied with weaponry during the Heoroman War of Independence and the Ekuosian War. Maiheroa’s dictatorial and oppressive regime caused economic and civil problems become commonplace. On November 27th of 1946, Maiheroa was overthrown and Kúúlism collapsed in Monyo. The nation then became a Monarchy, led by King Avahua Yi, however Kúúlist ideals are still prevailing and the Monarch is almost completely ceremonial. WIP
According to Chapter 2, Section 5 of the Constitution, "Yakormonyo is to be ceremonially led by the King, and officially (led) by two officials: the Prime Minister and the General." The Prime Minister holds the Executive-Legislative branch, while the General holds the Military-Judicial branch. Under each there are the following:
The Executive-Legislative Branch is led by Prime Minister Onihua Yaohi-Oşerva ş-Vonyovu, who took office in 2018.
-Law Department/Senate led by Ytonahua Aphucke-Sekoria ş-Jiovu
-Relations Department led by Tumahua Pekhsypemon ş-Maiovu
The Military-Judicial Branch is led by General Ytonahua Ongunaky ş-Maiovu, who took office in 2013.
-Bureau of the Nation/Internal Territories Bureau
-Justice Bureau/Supreme Court
-External Territories Bureau led by Otohua Sotoyongu-Mussipemon ş-Zatovu
The nation is divided into three regions, the Toşe Region (Capital: Otofu), the Pekha Region (Capital: Peccy), and the Avajia Region (Capital: Tumona). Under these two regions are 11 oblasts (Pvoky), where each has a local school, hospital, environmental center, etc. and can create their own laws and reforms, as long as they follow the Constitution. Under the 11 oblasts, there are a total of 30 districts, with Otofu having the most districts (5).
Yakormonyo is mostly in isolation, except for trades with some nations, especially the Fals Empire. In diplomacy, Yakormonyo has a very close friendship with Heoroma, and a neutral friendship with almost every other country.
The Monyo government has a Military-Judicial branch, led by the General. Under him are the Captains of the Nation, Justice, Immigration-Deportation, and External Territories.
The nation also has a very strict Constitution; according to Chapter 1, Section 5 of the Constitution, "Those who disregard the Constitution or any law created by the Senate are to be deported to a certain place and forbidden from returning to their home district for a certain amount of time, although the nation will supply their basic needs." Because of this, there is very little crime in Yakormonyo.
Interdistrict transportation in Yakormonyo is purely trains, with several trains (naneje) travelling throughout Yakormonyo. The following are the four train lines of Yakormonyo:
Ayepena (Island Line)
This train line travels through the islands between Toşe and Pekha, going from Otofu Station in the east to Peccy Station in the south. The cost of travel is 1 Keńu per station, the most expensive trainline of the four.
Otopena (Coastal Line)
This train line travels throughout coastal Yakormonyo, going from Voma Station in the north to Siopekha Station in the south. The cost of travel is 4 Monsukeńu (.8 KNU) per station, with an additional 1 Monsukeńu (.2 KNU) every four stations. The most expensive fare for a single trip is on the Otopena, with 7.3 Keńu from Voma to Siopekha.
Siocepena (River Line)
This train line travels along the Sioce River, going from Totosa Station in the east to Peccy Station in the west. The cost of travel is 3 Monsukeńu (.8 KNU) per station, with an additional 1 Monsukeńu (.2 KNU) every four stations.
Yeghepena (Lakeside Line)
This train line travels through the different lakes in Northern Yakormonyo, going from Ytauna Station in the north to Kaupe Station in the south. The cost of travel is just like the Siocepena, 3 Monsukeńu (.8 KNU) per station, with an additional 1 Monsukeńu (.2 KNU) every four stations.
When traveling to nearby places, Monyos usually walk or ride bikes. In every district there are at least two bicycle rentals, which cost 1 Monsukeńu (.2 KNU). There are also tricycles roaming around, with a slightly higher fare ranging from 2-4 Monsukeńu (.4-8 KNU)
Science and technology
This year, Yakormonyo is experiencing population growth in all oblasts, unlike in 2017, where Aphucke and Jemesami had a decrease in population. The growth is also increasing exponentially, reaching a growth rate of 4.6% from last year's 2.6%, and is estimated to match the all-time high of 7.6% during 2015. 2018's census was also the very first census wherein the oblast, region, and national censuses all match.
Otofu and Peccy the two main urban oblasts, with Otofu being the center of tourism and Peccy being the center of commerce. Ytauna and Ony are also slowly becoming urban, having the third and fourth highest oblast population respectively. Jemesami is also partly urban, since Mussipemon is a bustling city district. The other seven oblasts are rural, and rely mostly on logging, fishing and agriculture.
The majority of the population in the north speaks Monyo, and the far northern areas speak Vomen. The south sees a Pekhan-speaking majority, altough many are also fluent in Monyo. Some people in Yaherbhoca also speak Yaharan, and small minorities throughout the country speak Ngutanese and Fáknir.
Monyos are conservative in nature and very hardworking. They can walk long distances with ease, and usually walk when going to nearby districts. A good example is from Otofu to Repoşota, which is 68 kilometers apart. Monyos are also very competitive, especially in sports like football and marathons. One known marathon is from Otofu to Peccy, a stunning 560 kilometers.
Yakormonyo's most known literature (within the country) is its 'Laws on Good Living' created by the philosopher Samehua Aphucke. In the official version, there are 10 laws, with 10 specific values:
|Follow the rules.||Obedience|
|Honor a promise.||Honesty|
|Love thy nation.||Patriotism|
|Help those in need.||Mercy|
In the Pekhan and Sameji versions, there are only eight values, with some eliminated, most evidently Valor and Obedience. But there is also a value which is not in the Official version because the Monyo government, and consequently, most of Northern Yakormonyo, does not agree to it.
|Respect your neighbor.||Love|
Monyo music is separated into three major categories: Northern Monyo, Lakeside Monyo, and Pekhan.
Yakormonyo's main symbol is the Sotoyongu, a cedar surrounded by a laurel. It was first used in the Duchy of Ësnvøërvërg as its first flag. It eventually became part of the national flag, which is known as the Flag of Sotoyongu.
