Western Independence and expansion (1755-1898)
Civil War (1899-1945)October Famine in the Northern Territories. In march 1895 Marcus Yohannes, Western dissident, compiled a book titled 'CIVIUM CREDULITATIS', it described the tenets of a controversial anarchist ideology that indirectly condemned the meritocracy. It hence promoted an alignment to democracy through the reduction of government authority. Its production went widespread the following months and so went the popularity of the dissident amongst the lower-class, and to a lesser extent the middle-class which predominantly populated the Northern Territories, but was laughed off by the upper-class which predominantly populated the Southern Territories. By June 15th 1897 Yohannes was convicted for hate speech and rape, of whom he both has been falsely accused according to his followers. During his subsequent imprisonment it is stated that he died of heart failure at the age of 74. This coincided with the massive unemployment rate in the Northern Territories which instigated rebellion against the Western Confederal States from April 5th-April 10th 1898.
In the following referendum on 1 February 1899 the State of Kensington seceded from the Western Confederation. On the 9th of February 1899, as democracy was fully institutionalised, Its legislature was determined; tetracameral, and its executive powers were in the hands of a 'revolutionary president'. Citizenism, based on the ideals of dissident Marcus Yohannes, gained significant support. To a point in which Harold Markhower went in office as the first revolutionary president of the State of Kensington. A shift in its policies made the Republic adequate to the ideology and started full scale Citizenist implementations which culminated on the 5th of March 1899 with the creation of the Citizens' Republic of the West, abbreviated; CRW.
In the first stages of the regime, the authorities were granted more supervision and democracy was mandatory. The people were keen on their civil rights and the individualist mindset through collectivism. In March 1900 the first national amendment act passed the tetracameral congress, it entailed proscriptions with a good amount of anti-aristocratic and anti-authoritarian sentiment directed mostly against the Kingdom of Belfras and the Western Confederacy, hence severed all pre-existing ties with nations that aligned itself with such or were classified as 'undesirable to the Revolutionary Guide'. The latter of which being the core principles within the CIVIUM CREDULITATIS. The repercussions of which worsened its foreign relations, especially with the Confederacy. Domestically its citizens were prohibited to participate in any activities undemocratic and against the revolutionary guide, government security agencies such as the CSA and to a lesser extent the DWIA had a close watch on all citizens within the Republic. The belligerence grew with Markhower's proclamation that all 'undesirables' should be systematically erased through executions.
The referendum taken in Dunville, Montgomery on 21st of August 1900 resulted to a secession of the State of Montgomery and a subsequent admission to the C.R.W. by January 1901. The latter infuriated the confederacy and officially put a hold to any further referendums organised in the states. After the Viridian City shelling President of the Confederacy, Mclaren, issued the declaration of war against the Citizens' Republic of the West. "As an act of aggression against our country we are obliged to treat it as such". The Citizens' Council of the Citizens' Republic of the West contrarily saw it as an act of liberation, being that the voices of the people were ignored after the referendum of Iron Vale was brought to a hold. The CRW Council had likewise declared a war against the Confederacy that would last over 40 years.
