History [edit | edit source]

The Uprising of Üsmile (1947)[edit | edit source]

The country was originally a colony of an old empire, named the "Kingdom of the Seashells". Due to ethnic tensions, the capitalistic ideology and the exploitation of fishing and farming lands. The citizens wanted to uprise. Many of the citizen's lost their lives during this conflict, about 500,000. It took months for their independence, which was granted on the 15th December 1947. The ideology became socialist at this time.

The Communist Ideology (1963)[edit | edit source]

After the fall of the original leader, Mukhomorov Nikita Petrovich, the new appointed leader, Cha Hae-Seong decided to experiment with communism. It was initially a success, many people enjoyed it. However, it was full of censorship and had little freedoms for it's people and people wanted to change it.

Üsmilian Benefits Scheme (1971)[edit | edit source]

After the impeachment of Cha Hae-Seong after the citizens thought he was corrupt. A new leader was appointed, named Phedra Pitera, the first female leader of Üsmile, who among the Greek speaking community in Üsmile. She was one of the contributing citizens, who was against Cha Hae-Seong and created a policy on the 5th October 1971, where it gave money to the citizen's who were poor and were advised to spend it wisely on necessary items they need, as cheating the benefits will lead to the gulag.

Üsmilian Telecommunications Service (1973)[edit | edit source]

Piteria added new freedoms for the citizens, which was the Üsmilian Telecommunications Service (OTS). It was used for citizens to express their beliefs, with the platforms of Music, Radio and TV.

Assassination of Phedra Pitera and the bombing of Üsmilian Telecommunications Service Building (1980)[edit | edit source]

A group of extremist protesters were against the Freedom of Speech, due to the inappropriate content that the citizen's were expressing. On April 25th 1980, the extremists managed to burn down the Üsmilian Telecommunications Service Building. In the evening of that night, Pitera was giving a speech about the shocking events in the Oofarscentric Hotel and was assassinated via poison, that was in her drink. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Arcas Pitera and Censorship Movement (1980)[edit | edit source]

The husband of the late Phedra Pitera was absolutly shocked of the events and the abuse of the Üsmilian Telecommunications Service and decided to focus on more censorship. Pornographic and extremely violent material was illegal under the Obscene Images Act 1980, punishable with gulag. He kept the Benefits Scheme to help the disadvantaged citizens. No citizens were allowed to contribute to any form of media and would be seen as propaganda if they managed to.

The Second Move from Communism to Socialism (1992)[edit | edit source]

The citizens didn't like the lack of liberties when expressing their believes the media and other institutions. They all generally agree with the Obscene Images Act. In addition, they continuously promoted the move from communism back to socialism, due to it's censorship issues during the communism. It was the June 1992 elections, Arcas Pitera the long 12 year candidate was up against new contender, Vưu Mỹ Nương, a young woman in her 20's, who had a massive contribution, in terms of protesting for the move. She was very popular with the masses and managed to overthrow Pitera.

On the day of the inauguration, 19th September 1992, Nương addressed that she will hire more people for the institutions to reflect the population. She created a free radio channel for citizens to send tapes about their beliefs and ideas. If they were too explicit, legal action was taken and punishment was varied from the case.

The Mass Üsmilian Hack (2005)[edit | edit source]

A previous government official, Arnulfur Oernsson, was fired due to corruption and revengefully decided leak the files and passwords to access special government data and send them to a notorious hacker group, "Capitalist Kebab". They sent hurtful messages across government platforms and created fake ideologies. They were mass riots because of this and the citizen's blamed Nương for this. She analysed the fake government text's literature styles, layouts etc, and came to conclusion it was Oernsson. He was punished by death due to his heinous crimes. Nương then improved the security of the special government data and then decided to resign due to the actions Oernsson committed and said she wasn't a good leader for Üsmile.

Boydalo Damir Ilyich and Xena Roussou (2006)[edit | edit source]

The new and current leaders took over from Nương's duties. They ensured that the government data's security was safe and they made sure the citizen's had similar freedoms. They improved on the Obscene Images Act 1980, by allowing graphic content to be available for over 18's and ID was mandatory for accessing the material. They also noted that if children accessed this content, their parents will be arrested under the Second Obscene Images Act 2006.

The New Leaders (2018)[edit | edit source]

After the long leadership of Ilyich and Roussou, new leaders will be put in place via an election. It was announced that Raini Rodriguez will be running this country.
