Historical Information
Pilbara was formed on the 10th of November 2023 after being funded by Oklahoma which was led by UnitiveBog10934 at the time

Pilbara is the overarching constituent nation of the Pilbaran Empire, spanning across several regions within Australia. It has however, since its foundation, expanded to most of the north, west, east, and south coasts, following a drastic surge in expansion between December 2023 and the present.

Established on the 10th of November 2023, with a total population of 261, Pilbara is one of the more populous political presences within the Pacific. It boasts 34 towns scattered throughout the Australian continent which make it the largest nation in the region and 10th largest on the server (however it is known to alternate between the 8th and 11th largest).

Pilbara also consists of 5 nations within its sub-meganation (The Pilbaran Empire), which makes it the 27th largest alliance to currently exist.

kobiKraft, the founder of the nation, established Pilbara after receiving funding from Oklahoma, which was led by UnitiveBog10934 at the time. Its name was derived from the geographic region with the same name.

Pilbara and the Pilbaran Empire

History

Foundation

Pilbara was established on the 10th of November in 2023 after receiving funding from Oklahoma. At the time of its creation, it joined Brazil under the Titicaca, which was controlled partially by Vantacrus. Pilbara remained a member of Brazil for 4 months until it was ousted for acting as a sovereign nation on the 25th of March 2024. Following its expulsion, Pilbara joined the Seljuk Empire on April 4th 2024.

During Pilbara's foundation, it exhibited fast territorial growth - quickly acquiring 3 towns in Northern Australia.

Growth & Tensions

Growth continued for approximately a week until tensions on the continent emerged, as a result of The Australian Empire's declaration of control over the continent. Following this, in late November of 2023, peace discussions began.

During this period Pilbara had grown by 3 towns, expanding their territory south. The expansion south sparked controversy, however, an agreement was made just a month later. And so, on the 31st of December 2023, Pilbara and Australia ultimately signed both a treaty and border agreement - locking Pilbara out of Australian claims and Australia out of Pilbaran claims. Subsequently, Pilbara experienced a sudden surge in growth once again. Unable to provide sufficient space for its new settlements within its border, Pilbara withdrew from the treaty and border agreement, beginning expansion elsewhere.

Following the termination of the two agreements, relations between Pilbara and Australia declined promptly, leading Australia to plant a town within Pilbaran territory. In response, Pilbara planted 2 of its own towns within Australia's major cities, which would go on to overclaim them. As time progressed, Pilbara continued to grow - with Onslow Bay reaching a staggering 100 residents on the 13th of March 2024. It later reached 118 residents on the 18th of May 2024, which made it the largest town within Aurora.

Australian - Pilbaran War

Despite Pilbara's growth, it soon faced a serious threat - The Australians, who on the 23rd of March 2024, had begun posting a series of anti-Pilbaran announcements within their Discord server. In response, Pilbara posted a similar announcement denouncing the Australians, leading to a declaration of war by the Pilbarans, thus instigating the Australian - Pilbaran war. (War declaration can be found on TBI).

Just a day later on the 24th of March 2024, Australia responded by establishing an invasion-oriented town adjacent to the Pilbaran capital, Onslow Bay. This resulted in the loss of central-Oceanic Australian territory. Following Australia's actions, on the 29th of March, Oceania officially merged with Pilbara in order to prevent a town from overclaim and to unify the 2 nations together - resulting in a 100 nation bonus.

With the unification of Oceania and Pilbara, the nation reached a whopping 200 residents, cementing itself as one of the largest nations to exist on the server.

On the 15th of April 2024, Pilbara officially overclaimed the towns of Freddo, Cooberpeddy and JavaScript, resulting in the territorial losses of approximately 5 to 20 chunks for each town.

Ultimately, on the 26th of April 2024, after some discussion, Pilbara and Australia signed the treaty of Albury, ending the war permanently.

Pilbaran Empire Foundation

The Pilbaran Empire was established on the 23rd of April 2024 after one of Pilbara's towns obtained a nation. At the time, the acquired nation was named "Chatham Islands" but was recently renamed to Auralia. The nation of Auralia was incorporated into the territory of Pilbara, meaning that Auralians would share the same values and rights as any other Pilbaran resident would.

The Pilbaran Empire is currently a sub-meganation of the Seljuk Empire. Meaning that any nations that join the empire join the Seljuks as well.

The Korea Conflict

More recently, Pilbara attempted to expand its territory, particularly within Asia, via a purchase of North Korea, which was (and still is) under the possession of Korea. However, the attempt was quickly rescinded and the territory was sold back to the Koreans due to the rising possibility of it escalating into a conflict. In the end, the potential conflict was narrowly avoided thanks to quick thinking from those affiliated such as Panth_r.

Pilbaras admission to the OFN

Beginning on the 5th of May, 2024, 2 government votes had appeared in the voting acts channel on the Pilbaran Discord server. The first vote questioned whether Pilbara should join the ESO (Eastern Security Organisation). The vote ended with 6 people for and 2 against the proposal. Despite the majority being in favor of the decision, the vote was later vetoed by the king. The second vote that appeared, however, was oriented around membership under the OFN (Organization of Free Nations). The vote, identical to the aforementioned, ended with 6 in favor of membership, and 2 against. The vote neared another veto due to both the king and a minister disapproving of the decision under skepticism. However, after later discussion with the secretary general of the OFN, Dracnoian, the king of Pilbara, kobiKraft, later agreed to join the alliance. The following vote ended unanimously with 8 in favor of the decision. And so, after the OFN held their own votes in regards to Pilbara's membership, on the 10th of May, 2024, Pilbara was admitted into the alliance.

Infrastructure

Highway System

The Pilbaran highway is extensive and continues to grow. Currently, it links all towns on the northern and southern coast (Including Auralia). The highway is currently in the process of expanding eastward, particularly towards Eastern Pilbara. The highway is coupled with Australia's extensive highway network and an alleged international highway, currently under heavy construction.

The Ministry of Transportation (MoTR) is responsible for the construction of the national networks and the upkeep of them.

The Shop

The nation's official shop (situated near Pilbara's spawn) is owned and led by numerous different people within the nation. The shop provides Pilbaran residents an opportunity to succeed in becoming rich. Foreigners may also obtain a shop plot within Pilbara. The nation's spawn was recently changed, providing a larger space to fit more shops. *If you want a shop plot in Pilbara, msg kobiKraft in-game or /mail him.*

The Military

Overview

The Pilbaran military contains anywhere between 11 to 16 people. The military features a rather distinct skillset, with some proficiently trained, some sufficiently trained and some sub-optimally trained. The military's leader is the Minister of Defence (MoD) who supplies the military with the necessary resources to fulfil its needs. This system allows Pilbara to have an effective military without relying on large amounts of backup.
