Updating from :http://classic.particracy.net/viewbill.php?billid=390107


BRIEF PRE-GAME HISTORY
The ancestors of today's Deltarians originally lived in central Artania, around the territory of today's Luthori and Ikradon. In a series of events known as the Deltarian Migrations, the Deltarian people, by then having a culture resembling a combination of RL Vikings and Magyar tribes, moved to their current location, where they formed an empire under the rule of the Tokundian tribe. When the other Deltarian tribes rebelled against the Tokundians and expelled them, Deltaria was reformed as Great Deltaria, a descentralized monarchy that established a large colonial empire around Terra. Great Deltaria collapsed as a result of The Terror, a century-long civil war, which ended with the nations of Deltaria reuniting and forming modern Deltaria. In the modern period Deltaria has exsisted as a republic and as a Czarist monarchy, for the last 500 years Deltaria has exsisted as a monarchy, with the monarchs actual power rising and falling based on the politics of the time. (Reference: End of the last Deltarian Republic- http://classic.particracy.net/viewbill.php?billid=378266


CULTURE
Deltaria can be best described as a stereotypical genocidal Eastern European shithole, with a culture based on a number of RL Eastern European and Slavic cultures. Deltaria is primarily based on the Tsardom of Russia, the medieval Kingdom of Hungary, the Romanian Principalities (Wallachia and Moldavia), Great Moravia, and the medieval Bulgarian and Serbian Empires. In addition, Deltaria also has influences from RL pre-Christian Scandinavia and Anglo-Saxon England. After several centuries of democratic and pro-Western governance, Deltaria has acquired a number of modern features, and has partially moved away from its older feudalistic culture. Throughout most of its in-game history, Deltaria has been ruled by aristocratic or czarist governments, and managed to conquer a number of nations on Terra, to which Deltaria still has claims. Deltaria has swung liberally on the pendulum but that swing always swings back to the conservative side with vengeance. Deltaria has a fierce xenophobic Delic and Dunic population that historically has tried to oppress minority groups.

Tokundian, Rodshya, and Kozak are spoken by small minorities, but are understood by many Deltarians.
