Vítelia, officially the Kingdom of Vítelia was a sovereign country located within the +,+ quadrant of the CivClassic 2.0 server. It was created as a result of the unification of the Thalassocracy & Pruthenia.
The name Vítelia comes from Oscan víteliú which is believed to be where the Latin Italia was derived through Greek transmission.
The lands of Vítelia were located within the deep +,+ with most of the land being hilly and forested.
Unification of the Realms
The beginning of joint history and collaboration between Pruthenia and the Thalassocracy begins after an internal decision by Pruthenia to seek diplomatic arrangements and allies outside of SESU, following the failure of the organisation to consolidate the way they had wanted. Viewing the Thalassocracy as a rising power within the region following integration of Rowa, diplomatic meetings were arranged with the hope of establishing a military alliance which succeeded.
Founding of the Kingdom
Following joint collaboration during the Rowan Strait crisis and in the ensuing brief military incursion into Maltovia there was considerable internal support for unification, furthered greatly by Pruthenia's relative diplomatic isolation after being kicked from SESU. These proposals for unification were being sent back and foward between both parties. Once a comprimise was reached between both parties and the constitution had been finished the two states were unified.
The Vitelia-SATO/Mir War
The war occured over the span of a day, probably January 6th, 2019.
Vitelia had a poor reputation due to drama; arguments on Discord; more drama with raiders in Maltovia; association with FRIENDS; former Lexington members being high ranks in Vitelia; and involvement in a war with Vinland. They also had wanted players from Lexington playing on alts which annoyed Hjaltland. There were also suspicions that Vitelia alt-raided various neighboring towns. SATO/Mir were planning to invade Vitelia around November/December of 2018, but it was leaked.
The war was started when it was uncovered that Vitelians were giving gear to banned players on VPNs, these players alt raided the Chanseatic state. Following the release of the video, Hallow left FRIENDS on January 4th of 2019, the alliance collapsed shortly after. Columbia, Hallow, and the Holy Jaded Empire found NATO. The Vitelians took the bastions and ran away a few days prior to the skybridge reaching the Vault, they declared that Vitelia was dissolved, with Rurik and Maxpowerboy pleading ignorance, claiming that they did not know about the Alt-Raiding and other sketchy behavior.
Aftermath of the War
Maltovia took control of Rowa; Akai retook it's former lands; Mir took control of the former Vitelian Vault in Rowa; MrDoombringer, the former minister of Georgian Affairs formed the Fifth Federal Republic of Georgia (which renamed to Asiro after about a day) in the islands of Georgia and Risk; a small portion of land in northeastern Vitelia was added to the Order of the Knights Templar; the island of Thaegon was taken over by Provincia; northern Daedalus was taken by Vinland, and southern Daedalus was taken by Ossenkirch; the northern parts of former Vitelia and the Islands of Pruthenia were reformed into a country called Pruthenia-Risk, which collapsed sometime by February of 2019, with the islands of Pruthenia being left abandoned, and the mainland regions being split between the Republic of Georgia, and the Order of the Knights Templar.
This war is regarded as being a precursor conflict to the larger Infinity war that would engulf the server in 2019.
Vítelia was structured as a parliamentary monarchy in which while maintaining the king, general governance and administration falls to the Council of Ministers, of which the Prime Minister leads.
