The Kingdom of Bohemia or now called Czechia (Czech: České království; German: Königreich Böhmen; Latin: Regnum Bohemiae) was a kingdom and state of the Holy Roman Empire located in the region of Bohemia in Central Europe. The King of Bohemia was also a Prince-Elector of the empire. Many Kings of Bohemia were also elected Holy Roman Emperors, making its capital Prague effectively the center of the Holy Roman Empire in the late 14th century. Following the marriage of Albert II of Germany, Holy Roman Empire and Archduke of the Archduchy of Austria and Elisabeth, ruler of the kingdom as the daughter of Charles IV, the kingdom was continuously ruled by the House of Habsburg. In 1659 Vladimir Kliment become King of the nation. A man of the name Borivoj Andel publishes a book about giving people the three important things: life, liberty, and property.
After a short period known as the Kliment idiocracy, the Croatian Bajandom conquered the nation and established a the Slavic Bandom of Czechia, commonly known as the Czech Bandom. Since the nobility opposed the former King, a council was set to rule until a new consensus could be reached.
The Kliment family retakes the throne in 1881. In the year 1881 the nation makes both women and men equal. The nation finally starts to build a railroad system in the nation in 1882. The election of 1882 about the nation becoming communist has the majority of the nation saying no to communism. The Voivode son is born this year in 1888. His name is Maximilian. In the year 1889 Jewish people get equal rights. The Voivode is overthrown after the Polish help create a communist nation.
Viktor Havel becomes the new Voivode in 1889, his political party is Anarchist Communism. In 1891 the nation splits into West and East. Viktor Havel is assassinated by an East Czechian trooper. Silvester Duran is elected as the new Voivode. The unification of Czechia happens with the Second Treaty of Brno.
Silvester ruled the country from 1899 to 1928, when a major faction in Czechia rose up led by Maximilian to take back the throne. A civil war erupted for seven months, until Silvester was overthrown and Maximilian became the new Voivode of Czechia.
In 1937, conflict began to stir. Communism was outlawed, and the constant agitation of Communists from Maximilian finally began to boil over, when in 1939 surviving Communists began a protest in Prague, which turned into a riot. Meanwhile in the central government, high ranking liberals, democrats and conservatives began a coup in Prague, toppling the monarchy and establishing a new republic. In Brno, rebels overthrew the local government and began a civil war.
Over the course of the 18th-19th centuries all military arms and services underwent significant developments that included a more mobile field artillery, the transition from use of battalion infantry drill in close order to open order formations and the transfer of emphasis from the use of bayonets to the rifle that replaced the musket, and virtual replacement of all types of cavalry with the universal dragoons, or mounted infantry. As weapons—particularly small arms—became easier to use, countries began to abandon a complete reliance on professional soldiers in favor of conscription. Technological advances became increasingly important; while the armies of the previous period had usually had similar weapons. Conscription was employed in industrial warfare to increase the number of military personnel that were available for combat. Total war was used in industrial warfare, the objective being to prevent the opposing nation to engage in war.
Each city has a Mayor that goes once a year to the capital city to talk about how the nation is doing with the King.
