The Co-Prosperity Sphere of Auman is a massive, economically powerful nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The nations origins are shrouded in confusion.
The Nation of Auman has recently proven itself to be a valuable member of the Martian community. Being the second signatory of the Martian Duma as well as one of its key supporters. The nation has lead many peaceful initiatives like the Kajal Mars peace keeping mission, which was personally lead by Overlord Balthizar Marduk I, though Aumanii forces did not leave the country until the Kajal Mars Military ordered them out.
While the Nationstates entry for the nation of Auman may be different from the information listed here I will simply explain it as thus:
Auman is made of several nations which, over a course of many years, have been annexed and occupied. The figures seen below represent the original nation. The information on tax rates and population seen in my Nationstates entry are a compilation of the general average of the states annexed in addition to those provided here. Basically, this is like a factbook for the state of New York in relation to the entire United States, Auman is but one state in a group.
Iuthian and Aumanii history is and always will be intertwined, and while historians debate fiercely on the subject to this day, to understand Auman's past you would first have to understand Iuthia's, for in ancient times, Iuthia was a violent empire, built upon the husks of many conquered nations. The reputation of its armies and infamous quality of its troops had been legendary and it seemed as though there was no stopping the blood thirsty reign of the Iuthians. The Aumanii were the most hardened troops the Imperial Army had to offer, their name meant, in the Iuthian battle language, "The Blooded Ones", The elite of the elite. The Aumanii were proud, fierce, warriors, loyal to the Emperor, Lord General Cuzski and no one else. The most trusted troops in the Imperial Army, the Aumanii were despatched on the most dangerous and far flung missions.
Ever loyal, the Aumanii were called upon by their Lord General to begin the invasion of Mars. Posing as non-union labourmen, they infiltrated the Red Star mining co. operation in Vascilia crater. Whilst the men aquitted themselves well in battle, unrest erupted at home. Lord General Cuzski, maintaining a troubled empire, grew tired of his position and his staff could tell. Murmurs turned to rumour and rumour to fullblown media coverage, was the Lord General fit to rule the Empire? Whether or not he was still upto the task, Cuzski was deposed in a coup. Cuzski's successor, Lord General Hertz, struggled to hold together the Iuthian Empire. Many of the Imperial territories rebelled and with loyalties divided, the Army was loathe to act. Some of the armies returned home, ignoring orders from High Command, others remained in the Empire's former possessions and integrated with the population or, in the case of the Aumanii, forged a nation of their own.
When Lord General Cuzski was deposed, General Tashkent of the Aumanii declared himself "Founder" of the Great Nation of Auman, which in essence was the occupied territories of the Hellas Basin and its surrounding areas. The Founder, thinking of his army's precarious situation, kept the momentum of his military campaign and forged ahead, crossing the borders of the Norieganian Food and Arms Cartel. Before harm could come to the nation, Chief Executive Officer Markos Noriega I, signed an unconditional surrender with the Aumanii. After several months of disarmament, the Norieganians joined the Aumanii as allies and pushed onward, invading and conquering the peaceful Duchy of Tannelorn in a long, bloody, war.
The South Pole having been united under the Aumanii banner, the three nations formed The Vascilian League of Mars, annexing several smaller, weaker, states and, quietly and uncharacteristically, went into a long period of isolationism.
