War with HyperboreaIn early July of 2022, Blartlol and Bstallio raided the capital of the Hyperborean Confederation, the northern neighbor to the Pridelands. When a group of Hyperboreans came to the Pridelands, Bstallio claimed Blartlol was not a member of the Pridelands, despite having his name on a building.
On 12 November 2022, Bstallio announced that he would be stepping back from CivMC for the time being, naming s0uthw3st and wilwithonel as "Stewards of the Pride" and giving them the authority to act on the Supreme Chancellor's behalf. He also declared Freeport the "regional capital" of the Pridelands, noting that most of the active population lived in the Lionsgate Archipelago, while retaining Pride Rock as the ceremonial capital.
Driven by dissatisfaction with the nation's treatment by the rest of the Imperial Federation and growing tensions within the IF Senate, Bstallio invoked the Treaty of Ascension on 24 January 2023 and requested negotiations for secession - in response, King_Cupar abdicated and handed the crown of the Imperial Federation to Jalhf. Following the stabilization of the IF government and the election of Chancellor ComradeSankara, an arrangement was struck between both governments, and the Two Lions Concordat was signed on 15 February 2023. The primary provisions of the Concordat concerned shared access to infrastructure and the status of the Island of Feline, which was retained as a jointly-administered zone within the IF and managed by the Pridelands.
Jarldom of Pride Rock
Jarldom of Freeport
The island now known as Freeport (or Simensen Freeport) was originally part of the Pridelands farming exclave in the Southern Sea, roughly between the Imperial Federation and Iopa. It was later developed into a port city by s0uthw3st, and is the primary settlement in the archipelago. Notable locations include the Freeport Lighthouse and Meadery, the copper fox statue on Marafen Island, and the Hermitage owned by wilwithonel.
Jarldom of Feline Wilds
The nation of FELINE, a furry colony originally part of the Imperial Federation, was granted by its former players to s0uthw3st to administer in their absence - it became a joint territory of the Imperial Federation and Pridelands following Prexit. It is the major farming area of the Pridelands, with several large-scale farms of cold weather crops and a high-altitude spruce tree farm. It is otherwise very sparsely developed, but plans for a new capital city, New Felicity, are in progress.
