After DoomsdayEdit

A severe famine and a cholera outbreak hit the region, killing many people during 1963 and most of 1965. The Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV), also known among farmers as 'blue-ear pig disease' also killed some pigs in late 1966.

A British soldier called General Steve Fletcher took control of Brackley in 1965 in the wake of a post war cholera outbreak.

The Union had forcibly assimilated many nearby tribes and villages over the early years, but this ended when Steve died in 1972 and his son Nicolas took over.

Several independent Northamptonshire villages that were no longer being intimidated into joining the union by 1972, offered a new start under the reformed regime and appreciated they were finaly going to be helped after all. They joined the union in 1975 and felt honestly welcomed by Nicolas' new regime.

Fist ContactEdit

Explorers from Northamptonshire and Market Harborough arrived in 1967. Friendly relations started with the Daventry and Woodford Halse Union and Kettering in 1972. Hostile relations began with Buckinghamshire in 1989. Brackley was discovered by Mercia in 1986, but it remained isolationist in nature. It defeated an attempted invasion by a raiding party from the Southern English Republic in 1990.

1990 to todayEdit

Brackley joined The Provisional Republic of the UK in 2006, but remained largley autonamouse; after the death of its ageing, isolationist and right wing warlord in a dysentery outbreak. His son Rodger then took over as leder. The winter of the winter of 2009-2010 was the worst in 50 years, in which 2 fatalities occurred.


The nation was once an authoritarian, isolationist and centre-right wing dictatorship. It became a democracy in 2004 and freely elects a 7 man advisory council to the warlord.
