The Mardvaeli Colonial Republic, better known as Mardvaeli, is a federal republic located in the Crepuculum arm of the Andromeda galaxy and also with many colonies in Mirus and the Quadrants. It's capital planet is Mardvenia with the city, New Daijino as the capital. Mardvaeli has a population of 56 billion and is continuously growing having to expand it's interests into the other galaxies of the Gigaquadrants.
Despite starting off as a relatively small and unimportant nation, it has seen some good eras. One would include the 200 year long Golden Age which includes the inclusion of the Corgaels and Partodons into Mardvaeli in the 2500s to the friendly encounter with the French Andromedan Colonies in the mid 2700s. The current era is the Colonial Age which include the late 2700s. This age was one of many wars, such as Attero Dominatus in Mirus or the Southern Rim Campaign in Cyrannus. However, it was also one of rapid growth and Mardvaeli gaining extensive and secure colonial territories in two galaxies already and possibly more.
This colonial ties and rapid growth have made Mardvaeli noticeable on the galactic scene making them members of numerous organizations such as the Andromedan Galactic Commonwealth, NZTO and GITO. Mardvaeli's closest allies include the French Andromedan Colonies and the Waptoria Alliance of Species. It also has colonial links with France, the Drodo Empire, the Rambo Nation and Farengeto, as well as heavy cultural and religious influences from the Draconid Imperium and The Divinarium.
The history of Mardvaeli can be traced back to 2501 when the vast majority of countries on Planet Mardvaelia united into different states under the newly found nation of Mardvaelia, named after the planet itself. Marvaelia expanded their reaches into the stars above with the first colonies being built faster than expected thanks to the joint efforts of the states working together making Mardvaelia almost a fully fledge empire in space. By 2579, all of the nations of Mardvaelia became a unified nation with the exception of a few Mardvae and Lupis tribes who were allowed to govern their own people according to their traditional beliefs.
However, at this time Mardvaeli was only made up of the Mardvae and the Lupis as they both originated from the same planet. The Devine would join later in 2556 after the Devineic nation of Daremway approached the Mardvaeli Republic colony of Seua looking for planets to mine. Daremway realised that the planet was already occupied and so made secret contact with the Mardvaeli Republic for a few years until they launched an invasion against the cruel regime of Karivet Asdaffa of the Holy Deralis Empire which gave Daremway a large amount of territory over the planet. However, by this point even with the joint effort of the aliens, Daremway and Mardvali both suffered damage and merged to create a stronger Mardvaeli. Eventually the whole planet of Gheo joined the Mardaveli Republic.
In the 2600s the Mardvaeli Republic would find and absorb many new creatures and colonies into their nation the most notable being the haughty Corgaels and the religious Partodons, both who would become great diplomatic thinkers and lovers of art and music. Soon Mardvaeli's republic would grow greatly in culture and scientific advancements were made as well as rapid colony expansion. These years would generally be peaceful and calm for the Mardvaelians and would usher them into a Golden Age that would last from the early 2600s to the late 2700s.
Attero Dominatus and Colonial AgeEdit
During Attero Dominatus, Mardvaeli allied the Waptoria Alliance while scavenging for Tyranny tech and fighting off the Imperium of War. This was the early moments of Mardvaeli coming into the galactic scene. The Mardvaelian Army won the battle with the help of the Waptoria Alliance. Shortly after the battle Admiral Decrake and Commander Waspers were both stationed in Andromeda. A new 2nd flagship was built for Mirus called the Starlight-1.2 Thanks to the success in Mirus. Soon a new Admiral, --- was chosen to defend the Mirus colonies and Mardvaeli's interests in the galaxy.
Mardvaeli's next colonial pursuits took them over to the mysterious and exotic Quadrants galaxies, in which they settled near the French Quadrant Colonies and the Drodian Quadrant Colonies in 2798, very quickly becoming equals with the two thanks to the governorship of the Imperial educated Devine governor Marcaelius Tdeneni with his ruthlessness in business. So far, the Quadrant colonies had not been involved in the same conflicts as the Drodian or French colonies when they invaded the Heer Stekeevel Space as the Mardvaelian colonies remained mainly undisrupted by the raids by the Heer Stekeevel.
Second Cyrannus War and Gigaquadrant ConflictsEdit
After the end of Attero Dominatus it wouldn't take too long until Mardvaeli was enganged unto the Gigaquadtrant Conflicts, being thrown into a massive conflict that stretched the universe while also possibly being stuck in a web of lies and deceit. Marton Gracuscae was not hesitant to invade and attack the Cyrannian Imperial State at the same as the Naakjian Confederation.
However, Marton Gracuscae was met with some backlash from the Parliament who thought it was too sudden to engage into another war and taking a tier 2 enemy head one would be a risky strategy. Marton, however, thought it would be an excellent opportunity to bring the Naakjian Confederation out of isolation and to test out the salvaged Drakodominatus technology they added to the starfleet. Soon Marton Gracuscae was given a 67% vote to declare war onto the Cyrannian State.
Along with the Gigaquandrant Conflicts were many other problems that rocked the universe such as the Plazthian Seisomachy and the increasing imperialism of the Delpha Coalition of Planets, both of these heavily affected France, one nation Mardvaeli certainly had a lot of colonial ties too. Before France had initially refused an alliance but in 2801, when meeting President Maxime of France where she invited the heads of state of the Mardvaeli Republic to the Élysée Palace on Paris, she proposed that they discuss matters of foreign policy, cooperation between their colonies only to to surprise them with a request of an alliance. Maxime said that France would like it to be a bilateral military and defensive alliance, meaning that they will align their interests militarily and economically and they pledge to come to each other's defense if they are attacked. France would include a footnote, however, that Mardvaeli could not call France to war in its ongoing conflict against the Imperial State, though France pledged to come to Mardvaeli's defense if the Imperial state strikes at Mardvaeli holdings in the Quadrants, Andromeda, or the Milky Way.
After this, Farengeto also proposed an alliance seeing as Mardvaeli and Farengeto shared a number of organizations as well as research projects to help close the technology gap between them. Among these were their own set of low Tier 2 equivalent ships using reverse-engineered tech around that were set to be rolled out around 2800-2802, these ships were ported out in Mardvaeli designs just in time for Gigaquadrant Conflicts. The new MV-FT-01 kinetic rifle was also created as a collaboration between the two as well as well as a new Interceptor fighter, the Innovator class, for Mardvaeli's expensive and ageing fighter section of the starfleet.
Mardvaeli's economy is stable and secure with many natural resources to trade and it also benefits from large amounts of tourism. It also benefits from a large mining industry found in the outer reaches of the republic with wandering comets, rocks and planets being rich in minerals. The natural environment is also well preserved in the Mardvaeli worlds and natural resources are produced at a steady rate. It has access to more alien products such as ones from isolated countries like the Naakjian Confederacy. The Republic is also rich in culture as well as ancient ones as well.
The Mardvaeli Republic is well renowned with being very diverse and offers a great deal of sovereignty to other cultures and old countries by letting them practise their freedom of association, culture and speech as well as heavily basing their society on the ideas of Liberty. Many organizations exist to preserve ones culture or create entirely new ones over time as well as promote racial and cultural harmony. Political groups often come together to discuss with each other and co-operate rather than compete. Mardvaeli is also bilingual with languages varying from Province to Province and has influences coming from the Divnarium, the Draconid Imperium and the New Tertamian Alliance. The Waptoria Alliance of Species also has left a strong cultural impact on the colonists of the Mirus colonies. French culture is also abundant in Mardvaeli thanks to the close relationship between Mardvaeli and extra galactic French colonies.
At the very lowest of the Mardvaelian government are the Planetary governors and above them are the System governors. However these two powers may have a larger amount of power than others depending on their said planet. System governors and Planetary governors as well as their associates make up a Provincial Council that manage the affairs of one Province. The Province Council is generally quite independent in managing it's own affairs and laws can vary from province to province however the Mardvaelian Parliament has the ultimate say over the provinces and their affairs if the Province Councils do something unacceptable according to the public and parliament.
However, thanks to their recent involvement with Attero Dominatus and the New Cyrandia Wars, Marton Gracuscae has funded the military much more and has modernized it again making on par with even tier 2s in combat as well as utilizing French-Andromedan technology and ships such as the Mirage Rois in the starfleet including salvaged Drakodominatus technology as well as Imperium of War combat techniques for the army to utilise in both normal and guerilla warfare thus making Mardvaeli a formidable force in wartimes.
The Starfleet of Mardvaeli is rapidly going under the presidency of Marton Gracuscae, with new trade agreements opening up with France, Nakkjian Confederacy and the AGC. Most of Mardvaeli's starfleet is composed of ships with makes created in the late 2700s, a few dating back to the mid 2700s although mainly the starfighters or gunships. The starfleet also uses a considerable amount of French ships as well, such as the Mirage class or the Comete Class as well as the Cassiel class frigates. Larger and more powerful ships such as the Beekbane frigates and the rumoured, Forobes-Drakowene Capital Ship were created near the end of the 28th century.
The Mardvaeli starfleet is somewhat weak and underwhelming in its gunships and starfighters causing it to rely on more expensive and foreign fighters such as the popular French fighter Mirage and Comete classes. It also severely lacks in high quality bombers although there are talks with the Naakjian Confederacy in exchange for bombers for sale. Instead, Mardvaeli's greatest strength are it's large ships such as frigates, Flagships and Capital ships. They can serve a wide range of versatile roles and have exceptional shielding as well as warp drives allowing for speedy retreats and optimal firing range. Such ships have been compared to borderline tier 2 tech. Flagships and Capital ships also posses hangars of their own mainly with Comete and Mirage classes and maybe a good few bombers.
Mardvaeli has an excellent army, while not being the strongest, or most advance, it is certainly one of the most adaptable and organized, even managing to take on Enemies like the Imperium of War or the Cyrannian Imperial State despite being inferior technologically and physically. The army is highly adapt in urban and guerilla warfare, using the environment around them, no matter how alien or harsh against their own enemies. Soldiers and infantry men are not the only sight on the battlefield as engineers can also be seen, placing down turrets and other artillery down in a matter of mere seconds. They also have the power to demolish large buildings with lethal explosives, obstructing enemy forces and buying the army and their allies more time to rethink or create strategies. Medics are also very adapt at safely travelling across the battlefield to help their fellow comrades getting soldiers in near death situations back in seconds ready to fight again. However, many soldiers know how to heal themselves quick enough if a safe area and with some considerable medical experience, this gives the medics more time to focus on helping those who need their help most.
Altogether this makes the Mardvaelian Army unpredictable to their enemies and hard to stop. Even a few battle losses to the Army wouldn't be enough to demolish their spirits as the Army can still make a successful retreat and come back to fight again with revised tactics and strategies to turn the tie of the battle. However, even a modest number of lost battles can be very crippling to a large portion of the Army and will result in an early loss so the Army must stay ahead at all time of their enemies as it can be hard for Mardvaeli to recover from a lost war, this sometimes means there's a good chance that a poorly going war might result Mardvaeli dropping out from the war earlier than their allies, even further hampering their allies chances of success.
The technology of the Mardvaeli Republic is respectable for any early nation as well as being at the level of a tier 3. They are innovative and successful in the robotics industry with robots that cab help enforce the law, deal with customers, detect illegal items and serve as bodyguards. Mardvaeli's people are also heavily reliant on nuclear power with advanced nuclear stations which are unlikely to leak and always have emergency plans in case of a possible leakage. Solar Power is also utilised as well but usually in the hotter and dryer climates of Mardvaeli the 2nd largest city Axesdrah being a good example. Primitive AIs are sometimes used but they are a work in progress and still in development but can sometimes be found in certain places such as shops or ships.

“A fledgeling nation, ultimately they pose no significant threat to the Brood's stability. Rather, I encourage the prospect of their further independent advancement. Although, their society seems somewhat... loose, and a lack of discipline and over-abundance of liberation can lead to more problems than it resolves.”
