The Temporal Isles, formally referred to as the Consulate of the Temporal Isles, is an island-based nation in the -,- quadrant led by PhysicsGamer. The Temporal Isles is made up almost entirely of taiga, with an amount of snowy
plains located in the northern reaches of its territories to the east. A small nation in size and population, and having seceded from Icenia in September of 2022, it stands as one of the youngest of its peers on the continent of Northlandia, focusing on trade and infrastructure development above other concerns.
Temporal isles does not have a strategic moms supply and their encroachments on Icenia’s demilitarized militarized zone will not be tolerated.
The Temporal Isles began at the Start of the World as a territory of Icenia, acquiring statehood under the leadership of First Consul PhysicsGamer and Second Consul SirAlador. Quickly farms were constructed, creating a large-scale and consistent source of food which continues to feed Temporals and travelers to this day. As PhysicsGamer became a Senator of Icenia, his attention was drawn away from the Temporal Isles due to concerns of the larger nation, and took on strict and harsh policies regarding production goals for the Temporal Isles to match the pace of Icenian development. Going so far as to entirely forego city development in favor of simply living in holes in the ground, dissent began to develop among the populace of the Temporal Isles, eventually resulting in SirAlador resigning from his position as Second Consul of the Temporal Isles, passing the position to PhysicsGamer, and announcing that he was quitting from Civ.
The resignation of SirAlador was a massive blow to Temporal morale, particularly with the harsh policies which had been enacted, and lack of trust in his leadership among the existing populace. The Temporal Isles rapidly lost citizens, ultimately resulting in the decline of the Temporal Isles into obscurity in Icenia, as well as the Temporal Isles becoming a largely dead state.
Involvement in the Generic War
The Temporal Isles, despite being a part of Icenia, felt no direct impact from the Generic War, and although its only member at the time, PhysicsGamer, fled alongside the rest of Icenia upon the initial attack by USA, he soon returned to find the Temporal Isles untouched by the war. During this time, he began work towards rebuilding a population within the Temporal Isles, recruiting newfriends and other Icenians who wished to return to Icenia, including Glaze, and Wjkroeker. Though there were a number of close encounters, PhysicsGamer was pearled on a USA ice road and was subsequently released on the basis of not wishing to be involved in the war. SirAlador made a return during this time, and was subsequently pearled and released after USA was informed of his association with the Temporal Isles, and therefore did not wish to be involved with the war.
Secession from Icenia
In August of 2022, with the Generic War drawing to a close, PhysicsGamer made the decision to act on his original goal when he joined the server of forming an independent nation, and began making preparations to do so. He spoke with foreign powers to attempt to develop relations between the Temporal Isles and other powers, though these efforts were often not fruitful. The most significant action, however, was the recruitment of a number of newfriends, most notably including Dr_Bacon_Hair and Blu9710, who would form the backbone of the new generation of the Temporal Isles. These Aardfolk newfriends, by integrating with the Temporal Isles, began the creation of a new, unique culture for the Temporal Isles, one which deviated from the Icenian culture which PhysicsGamer had originally assimilated into. This time around, PhysicsGamer did not want to make the same mistakes of harsh rule which he made previously, and made efforts to reduce pressure on the players of the Temporal Isles.
By electing to grant citizenship to these newfriends and others despite them not possessing Icenian citizenship, PhysicsGamer took his first public action in defiance of Icenia. With no retaliation to speak of, PhysicsGamer began organizing the construction of a bunker between the Isles of the Temporal Isles, working to establish power projection over them and secure them for secession. However, with the announcement of ice road plans in Icenian defense channels, the hand of PhysicsGamer was forced early, resulting in the presentation of the Temporal Secession Treaty to Icenia on September 25th, 2022, quickly resulting in controversy and the arrival of a significant number of Icenians in gear, including Shadno, Rinvincibl3, Lagiacrus, and even ChrisChrispie himself, as well as others. In response, a number of Temporals including Dr_Bacon_Hair and Blu9710 logged on and arrived at the site, with high tensions as PhysicsGamer awaited being dragged into Icenian private channels to discuss the terms of secession.
Discussions were had with the three leaders, ChrisChrispie, Rinvincibl3, and PhysicsGamer, who came to a number of agreements, which were later codified by an amended version of the treaty presented previously. Notably, the revised treaty granted the Temporal Isles half the land it had originally requested, removed all farm access from Icenian farms for all Temporals, and forcefully stripped all Temporals of Icenian citizenship, forcing Temporals into a decision on if they wished to remain with Icenia or leave with the Temporal Isles. Most citizens of the Temporal Isles at this point did not hold Icenian citizenship, though SirAlador, through some unknown means, retained both citizenships, despite the agreement.
A number of incidents would occur which would raise tensions, including as standoff between JuniorTide, PhysicsGamer, and Dr_Bacon_Hair over an Ice road found within Temporal territory, repeated incursions by ChrisChrispie into Temporal territory despite an advisory not to enter Temporal territory, and attempts by ChrisChrispie to assert undue control over the Temporal Isles by demanding that a foreigner not build a bunker in Temporal territory. Though tensions later declined, these incidents have left an undertone to Temporal-Icenian relations, and both parties seem eager to put the rocky start behind them.
Following the formalization of the secession from Icenia on September 26th, 2022, the Temporal Isles began a massive recruitment drive and began looking abroad to establish relations with other nations. Among the individuals recruited during this time, Jaimiemie was the most prominent, quickly gaining recognition and becoming a major player in the Temporal Isles. Many projects were started and completing, with huge contributions by Dr Bacon Hair and Blu9710 towards both funding and constructing projects. In addition to domestic efforts, foreign affairs saw much success, with friendships quickly developing with Valyria and Winterbourne, and trade abroad becoming a major aspect of the Temporal economy. The Temporal Isles took on a policy of public factories and exchanges, promising use of factories and exchanges for various materials to all on the continent, and even those abroad that the Temporal Isles was friendly with. Though such efforts required active maintenance and monitoring to avoid security risk, they represented the start of the Temporal Isles' policy of collaboration and support of growth of the continent through both trade and services.
