Pre Formation Period
Prior to the creation of the Kingdom of Siclona, small duchies and city-states occupied the territories constituting south-western Verdien. The most prominent of these duchies and city-states was the Grand Duchy of Edrona, located in what is now Siclona's capital province. Other prominent countries include: the Foellan Republic, the Principality of Segliano, and the Kingdom of Athaurus. Relations between the nations were split right through the middle of the map, the northern nations being in friendly relation with each other, and, in turn, the southern countries being in friendly relation to each other; the Kingdom of Athaurus was the only true neutral nation in the region. Athaursian neutrality lasted nearly 1000 years after the formation of the Siclonan Republic.
In the year 540, the northern nations of the Grand Duchy of Edrona, the Foellan Republic, and the Duchies of Agrigento and Catania entered a military alliance and free trade agreement, binding the economies and militaries of the nations. Within a few months, the leaders of the nation's agreed to bind their governments under one monarch. This act lead to the creation of the United Kingdom of Siclona; this act solidified the nation's power in the region, which lead to its inevitable expansion southward.
The people of the United Kingdom continued to prosper, being enriched by a continuous flow of trade and ideas entered the nation's ports. In the year 677, such prosperity influenced the reigning king, (NAME), to move the focus of his armies south. On May 3, 677, Siclonan armies invaded the Principality of Segliano, occupying the northwest of the country in just two months. The Principality's armies, who were caught unprepared for an attack, were stationed in and around the nation's capital, (NAME), in wake of unrest and riots.
Early Modern Period
Mid Modern Period
Siclona, the founding nation of the UCCN, leads the peace-keeping democratic coalition of nations across Verdien. While its allies include several monarchies, such as Kellia, Sabovia, and Sparatrea, Siclona and its citizenry pride themselves on the ideals of democracy and their enjoyed political freedoms. Through this, the Siclonan central government encourages and enforces the aspects of democracy and personal rights on worldwide scale. Rising tensions with Hollinsgurd has strained Siclona's foreign policy, but has not crippled it.
