U.T.S.S. or The United Tribes of the Southern Sea, today known as the Kingdom of Southseasia, is a former nation on the CivMC server. The nation is located in the deep Southwest of the map near the world border. The capital and largest settlement is Port Capitola, a regional trading center. The founding leadership and citizens of the U.T.S.S. date their history back to Wheatistan and the Republic of Araratia (on CivRealms 2.0) as well as the United States of Hayastan (on CivU). On July 28th 2023, during the anniversary celebrations, then Chief of the U.T.S.S. made the announcement of the establishment of the Kingdom of Southseasia.

The Beginning

The history of the U.T.S.S. began when a group of Araratian tribesmen, lead by H4Y4ST4N, fled from the war torn city of Minas Trinith in the then independent nation of the Fellowship (today Maelstrom) during a period of war and turmoil in the region. They left south to the safety of a chain of then undiscovered islands, which quickly became a permanent settlement known as Capitola. Shortly after landing on the islands, a meeting of the first Tribal Council was held in Port Capitola, marking the official formation of the U.T.S.S. on July 28th, 2022.

Early Settlement and the Construction Era

The first makeshift settlement on the banks of Capitola Island, "Port Hayastan" was home to several wooden shacks and homes, two farms, the old delivery building, and the Southwest tower. Shortly after, the small settlements of Hermit and St.Wheaton were established. Unfortunately, St.Wheaton was almost completely destroyed during a raid by AbbyShapiro and their accomplices shortly following its establishment. Today, its ruins have been designated a national landmark.

For the next month following formation, the people of the U.T.S.S. focused their efforts on collecting resources and terraforming Capitola Island to make way for the capital. Construction on the Port city of Capitola officially began on Sept. 1st 2022.

The "Great Expansion"

Following the initial development period, the country's leadership quickly realized that the U.T.S.S. lacked much needed farmland. At the time of establishment, the U.T.S.S. had only two large functioning farms located on the fertile Westport Islands and two biomes. This land was barely enough to feed the country's citizens. After a unanimous vote by the Southseasian National Assembly, it was decided that the U.T.S.S. would begin its expansion into the North and South.

The Toki Pona Tribe of Ma Lete

During the great expansion, the tribesmen from Capitola stumbled upon a group of people in the Southlands known to the Southseasians as the Ma Letens. The tribal council from the capital was sent to meet with the tribal chief omokami, who presented the delegation led by Lord Hermetic with gifts as a token of good will. The tribe immediately became a part of the UTSS, contributing to its culture and economy. The people of Ma Lete played a role in the early development of the UTSS, especially with their work on the construction of the national railway system, which spans from Ma Lete, to Capitola all the way to Mt.Augusta. The Ma Lete-Capitola Railway continues to be the soul transportation system in the UTSS.

The UTSS Railway System

The UTSS rail system is one of the largest national rail systems on the map, spanning from the capital island of Capitola all the way to Mount Augusta. Construction began in September, with much of the excavation being done by Toki Ponan workers. Work on the railway was completed within a few weeks, and became fully operational in October. The railway continues to operate with regular repairs being made monthly. It is considered one of the proudest national achievements of the UTSS. As of May 2023, the railway has been extended to include multiple other cities along its route from Capitola to Mount Augusta.

Entrance into the IF

On May 9th 2023, the United Tribes of the Southern Sea became a member state of the Imperial Federation. The decision was made following a discussion regarding regional affairs between the Chief of the UTSS and the King of the IF.


On August 26th, an expedition of the National Guard headed south to explore the then uninhabited Southlands. Shortly following this expedition and the establishment of Sunduc port, the southern territories were officially incorporated into the U.T.S.S. on the 29th of August.

Novamythria, Norshen and Hatium

The regions today known at Novamythria, Norshen and Hatium were acquired by the U.T.S.S. from the Western Boundary on September 17th, 2022. Novamythria was formally known as Fire Island National Park. The first settlement built in Novamythria is the small farm town of Paradise, which was founded on the northern coast of Novamythria Island.

On September 23rd NinaDavinci was appointed Governor of Novamythria Island.

Disputes and Conflicts

  • For a brief period, the Hatium Islands in the Western Boundary were disputed between the U.T.S.S. and W.B. This dispute was quickly resolved through diplomatic talks between the leadership of both nations. Eventually, the Hatium Islands along with other northern territories were willingly transferred to the U.T.S.S. on the 17th of September.

Foreign Policy

The U.T.S.S. has a neutral policy when it comes to its foreign relations, and will never involve itself in unnecessary wars. The country follows the old Araratian doctrine, which states that the National Guard may only act in self-defense and that there shall be no involvement in war unless threatened or absolutely necessary.
