Odresh is a nation in the +,+ quadrant. It's capital city is Odresh City, on the nation's southern coast. It is a direct democracy, with a leader-like position called the Foreign Affairs Representative, or F.A.R., who is reelcted every month. The F.A.R. deals with foreign negotiations, and also has a few other powers to keep the nation together in times of crisis. There is also a Deputy F.A.R., appointed by the F.A.R., who assists in negotiations and assumes the role of F.A.R. in case of pearling of inactivity.

History

Pre-CivClassics

Devoted

Odresh was originally founded on Devoted 3.0, in Spring 2017, by Crusher6581. It quickly endured a revolution resulting in the creation of the RSFSR, a communist group to the south, who remained hostile for the duration of Devoted. Odresh then annexed a nearby city and became a state of the United Federation.

Realms

After Devoted shut down, Pcmas12 and Lokilog founded Odresh in Realms. They created a small settlement to the south of their claimed island, and after realizing the existence of a large, abandoned city on the island, Carcosa, they moved their capital there and began to restore the area. It was here that Odresh became friendly with the nation of Hokkaido due to trade.

First Months

When Realms announced that it would be shutting down, the remaining active citizens of Odresh (Lokilog, Crusher6581, Pcmas12, and ZiggyCraft102) agreed to merge with Hokkaido to form the nation of Okashima. When Okashima became inactive, these citizens moved to the +,+ quadrant and established the nation of Odresh. It was quickly discovered that another player, Bennyboo, was planning on building a nearby city, so they created the Sozialstaat Agreement, which incorporated the city into Odresh. They annexed the inactive nation of Batavia and claimed most of the land on their continent up to the borders of Maltovia. Their capital, Odresh city, lies on the edge of the coastal cliffs to the south of the nation. As aspiring members of SATO and the NCA, they quickly began a rail project to connect the city to Vinland.

Auroran Independence

As more people arrived to the city of Sozialstaat, it was revealed that it was built by citizens of Aurora, a nation that dates back to CivCraft. Crusher and Lokilog realized that the city was becoming more Auroran than Odreshi, and during discussions with Bennyboo, they Aurorans announced that they wanted to be independent. From here, independence negotiations began, resulting in the full independence of Aurora. Unlike the situation with the RSFSR, the two nations maintain friendly relations.

Phylon Conflict

In December 2018, the first section of the previously mentioned rail to the NCA was completed, going from Odresh City to the nation of Phylon. The F.A.R. at the time, Lokilog, had thought the nation to be inactive, due to it's absence from the claims maps and the fact that many of the city's buildings had been broken into, and so the citizens Odresh voted to annex the island 4-2. A few weeks later, a snitch was discovered on the rail near Phylon's station. Upon breaking it, it was discovered that the snitch was placed by OLivay. He was confronted about the situation, and after declaring Phylon to be an active nation, he quickly restricted the city. A few days later, Lokilog and Crusher went to check if any more snitches had been placed, and after finding none, decided to explore the island. They eventually found their way into the rail station, and from there, Phylon's storage area. The small check had turned into a raid, and so Lokilog and Crusher broke into a few chests and destroyed a few noteblock snitches. After realizing OLivay was online, they left the island with three splash potions of healing. Upon returning to Odresh, they knew that a raid was imminent, and so they dropchested their valuables. Indeed, almost immediately after, five raiders from Phylon showed up, pearling Crusher and logboxing Lokilog in the community center. They alerted their friends in Okashima, who asked for assistance from Vinland. They set out to free Lokilog, but most of them didn't know that Phylon's raid had been justified. Upon reaching Odresh, they broke and logbox and freed Lokilog, who escaped and logged out in the NYC station. Over the next two weeks, a trial was held with Askedar as judge, who sentenced Lokilog and Crusher to two weeks in prison pearl. The only reps sentenced were the three potions, the blocks broken, the reinforcement materials, and the mana costs for the two weeks Lokilog and Crusher would spend in prison pearl. On January 5th, 2019, Crusher was released. Lokilog has yet to serve his pearl time due to availability issues between he and OLivay, but is planning on turning himself in after the Second Olympics.

Territory

Geography

Mountains

Most of Odresh consists of mountainous terrain, making it hard to cross the territory quickly. To solve this, Lokilog built a series of bridges and footpaths from Odresh City to the Auroran border. It contains two paths to Batavia and construction to the desert is underway.

Tundra

To the west, the Batavian tundra forms a large, flat area with sparse trees. There are a few scatted buildings from abandoned civilizations, but lacks any other infrastructure. It's border with both the mountains and sea are defined by tall cliffs, increasing travel times. There is a single waterdrop and minecart elevator connecting the tundra to the mountains.

Desert

The eastern part of Odresh consists of a vast expanse of desert. As with Batavia, it's border with the mountains consists of cliffs, but is just above sea level, so travel by water is comparatively easy. However, a narrow land bridge to Maltovia means that travelers must sail around Aurora to reach the desert.

Settlements

Odresh City

As the capital of Odresh, Odresh City is the nation's most active settlement. It has a Community Center and Factory Building, accessable by all citizens. The old Community Center was torn down after the Phylon Conflict to reveal the logbox inside, and will be turned into a memorial of the event. The rest of the town is relatively small, with a medium-sized farm and a few houses.

Batavia

Batavia was a nation in the tundra to the north of Odresh, but was annexed after they fell inactive and didn't respond to messages. No one lives there, but abandoned structures include an ice farm and castle-like structure. The elevation change from mountains to tundra and lack of infrastructure makes transportation here difficult, but with the recent addition of a spruce farm,a waterdrop and minecart elevator were added.

Urbania

Connected to Odresh City by rail, Urbania was another abandoned nation directly to the east of the capital. The settlement consists of two large, incomplete government buildings. As with Batavia, it has no inhabitants.
