Basic Information Edit
Florence is a prosperous nation led by Paladin Melorann. In February 2017, the nation celebrated its two year anniversary. After splitting with Byzantium (Florence-Byzantium), Florence was launched onto the world stage after Vekta City joined the nation. Many other cities joined Florence for the safety from the giant Thilwohr, a hostile empire that grew bigger by the day. Since the fall of Thilwohr, Florence declined, but it was still a widely known nation. On January 13th, 2017, the Florentine capital moved to Vekta City. Renovations are expected to hasten in the new capital. On January 15th, 2017, Florence merged with the nation of Corsica, creating the Union of the Republics of Corsica and Florence, or Corsica-Florence. The nations hold equal power in this Union. In May 2017, in a Florentine led campaign, the Union officially became a dual monarchy, ending the power of the Union Assembly.
City of Mavulane Edit
Mavulane was founded as Meteli in January 2015. Florence was founded a month later, and was quiet until it grew into a large nation that boasted rich architecture and a peaceful reputation. Slowly growing in riches ever since, Mavulane avoided many wars through diplomacy. The city moved its location to a desert biome in February 2016. The former location (by Valence) was sold to Sphinx for $26,000, and became the present day city of Crete, Corsica. In January 2017, the capital moved from Mavulane to Vekta temporarily, while Mavulane was once again, and finally, moved to a jungle biome in the MAVAP metropolitan area with Appareil.
Foreign Affairs Edit
Florentine foreign affairs legally match those of Corsica. As long as many can remember, Florence has been a neutral nation, and always encourages peace rather than war. However, Corsica-Florence does strongly oppose the idea of active clans on the server, preferring individual nation states.
The Union of Corsica-Florence is allied to:
The Union of Corsica-Florence is enemies with:
- New Russian Tsardom
Although not formally enemies, Corso-Florentine relations with Nexus are on thin ice, but are recovering.
Laws and Positions Edit
Known as a "peacemongering" nation since the dawn of time, Florence prides itself in its neutral influence. In order to keep its reputation, many laws are in place.
- All neutrality rules must be followed. If a neutrality rule is broken and is reported, the resident can be charged a fee upwards of $5,000 coins. If the resident cannot pay in a reasonable time frame, other items might be taken from them, or they could even be kicked from their home and city.
- All Florentines must follow laws. It doesn't matter if you're a mayor or a peasant, laws set by Florentine officials must be followed. Only Melorann can override laws, but only if needed.
- Explosives are banned in the cities of Mavulane and Vekta. This is to ensure the maximum security of Florence's largest cities.
- Murder is strictly against the rules. If you are attacked, do your best to escape and lock yourself in a nearby structure. If this is impossible, fight back, but only if you were hit first. This is considered a major offense in Florence.
The Florentine military is known for embarrassing failures in her early years, which taught the government to keep out of conflict. After the fall of the first Gallia in 2015, Florence has avoided any conflict whatsoever. Florence became a neutral nation when she merged with Byzantium in late 2015, and continued the neutral policy after Florence-Byzantium split.
There have been several bomb threats directed at Vekta City, which has caused the city government to regulate the placement of chests, and ban explosives inside the city walls.
