The Floydian Cold War (Sometimes called The Imperial War, The War in Pink Floyd, or The Floydian War (by people who count the august 18th coup as the first war)) was a war in the region Pink Floyd. It was started because of the increaseingly tense standoff between The Imperial Race and Tetris L-Shaped Block. It was believed to be started on the August Pink Floyd but many challenge that date. A group of nations lead by the Imperial Race tried to incite a rebellion in Pink Floyd, but Luckily for the region, the allies of Tetris L-Shaped block refused to rise up against their delegate, that was only the first stage of the standoff, The two sides were the Floydians and The Imperialists.

The Four Day war

The 4 Day War (Sometimes called The Imperial-Tetris War, The War in Pink Floyd, The Second Floydian War (by people who count the august 18th coup as the first war), The Imperialist-Floydian War, August Conflict (by people who group both the coup and this war with eachother), or The First Imperialist-Floydian War (by people who consider the two to still be at arms)) was a war in the region Pink Floyd. It was started because of the increaseingly tense standoff between The Imperial Race and Tetris L-Shaped Block. A group of nations lead by the imperial race tried to incite a rebellion in Pink Floyd, but Lucily for the region, the allies of Tetris L-Shaped block refused to rise up against their delegate, and the attempted revolution was quelled in its earlyest stages. The 'Player' of Tetris L-Shaped Block was quoted saying "ĉiuj viaj bazo estas membriĝas al ni", which translates to "All Your Base are belong (are in the membership of) us." Upon defeat, the emperor of the Imperial Race (then The Million World Empire of the Imperial Race) told the region that "As long as the natives are under floydian rule, the region shall forever be an enemy of the imperial race". This reason however, is offten seen as just a cover story for the true reason, the friction between the two superpowers.

Several hours later, more conflict ensued, which lead to the region being locked for the remainer of the night, and rumors of a sleeper cell. The password was not accepted widely, and was protested by Jack of Blades. This only intensified the paranoia, and both nations were at odd, with the nations of Pink Floyd caught in the middle. The next morning, the restriction was lifted, and everyone became free to enter and leave as they please once again. Peace talks included a race for the position of "U.N. Delegate" to occur between The Imperial Race and Tetris L-Shaped Block. Weather or not to have an election was voted on via-referenda, and failed. Once failed On august 22nd, The Imperial Race officially adopted a ZERO TOLERANCE for the region (meaning that the Imperial Race will not collaborate with any nations that conspire with the nations of the August 18th Coup). The Imperial Race gave the government 24 hours to leave the region and abdicate all power to the emperor. This lead to the "protection law" to be once again in place, causeing nations accused of helping the imperial race to be banned, and the region passworded.

Misinformation trail

Durring the war, the nations of Pink floyd lead a mass mis-information campaign against the suspected sleeper cells. True information and plans were told to all old members of the region, but all other members (aside from Asthinia) were given falseified information to throw the imperial race off track. When the so called "protection law" was inacted, only two of the five suspects (one of which was not a sleeper cell), were kicked out. The Pink floyd leaders saw that continueing the misinformation campaign could have long benefits.

Peace & Agreement

On August 24th, due to the negative effects on both sides, Tetris L-Shaped Block and The Imperial Race returned to three party talks, with Socialist Freemen as the observer. The eventualy reached an agreement called "Kvina-Periodo Interkonsento" or Fifth Period Agreemen (nammed after the fact that both parties came to the talks because of the very reason stated in the 5th period). The agreement called for :

Battle Flag of the Tetris L-Shaped Block.

1. The Region shall be unlocked

2. The Imperial Race and it's allys shall not attack or attempt to crash the region

3. The Imperial Race may enter and leave the region as he chooses (granted there is no threat from the emperor)

4. The forum image shall be taken down and replaced

5. The agression shall cease

It was stated that if any of the 5 periods are broken by either party, the doccument becomes null and void. All three nations signed and the doccument was made official 12:05.

After effects

The War caused many problems in the region and the nations themselves. The war is oftehn what caused many natives to flee Pink Floyd. Upon defeat, the "Million World Empire of the Imperial Race" underweant reforms, eventualy emergeing as the current "Imperialist Empire of The Imperial Race". The war also brought about the birth of Imperialism, which is causeing problems that eventually lead to more war

Peace Disturbed?

Some speculate that the agression has not ceased at all in the region, and that the banning of the imperial race and region locking (September 13th) makes the agreement null-and void. Others say that the agreement was first disreguarded when the imperial race tried to start a war with the region (September 10th) by banning the very thing the region is founded upon. Aside from all that, others speculate that the agreement all in itself was made with a country that no longer exists, being that the agreement was made with the "million world empire of the imperial race", wile the country has since undergone many changes and emerged as "the United Imperialist States of the Imperial race" for more, see Floydism in the imperial race

The First Palixian Standoff

Palixia remained very watchful of The Imperial Race and after much thought decided to re-declre war on The Imperial Race (form now on shall be addressed as TIR), this conflict was overwith in hours but a treaty was never proposed but a cease-fire was put into reference. After the first conflict the former Democratic Empire of Palixia decided to overthrow the leader of thier region the Antarctic Oasis, this was unsuccessful so most of the Palixian teritorries were moved over to Pink Floyd after one day Only Palixia returned, this time he was out of the UN for breaching of the rules, he underwent a change in leader and the overthrow of their Democratic Empire, becoming the Holy Floydian Republic of Palixia, yet still the tensions between Palixia and his allies remained the same.

The Floydist Genocide

On September 10th, 2005 the Imperial Race decided to remove Floydism from thier nation, they collected all members of TIR's Floydism section and mass murdered them. This of course rose the tensions of the Floydists and the Imperialists.

Floyism/Imperism One Day war

Following the mass genocide of TIR's Floydists, the Inquisitors of Floydism meet in secret and decide to declare war on The Imperial Race, It was solved before the casualites reached 2,000 people. This was only a minor conflict but the Cold War still goes on. The Imperial Race has lately lifted the ban to help relations between the two countries.

End of the war?

On september 23rd, Pink Floyd was overtaken by an outside power, Empire Earth. The Imperial Race has said it prefers the old floydian nations as opposed to the empire, and has not warred with the shatterd Floydain nations. The floydian nations then retreated to The Floydian States region, untill the Nation States moderators displaced the Empire Earth backed delegate for griefeing. The Imperial Race has been helping the FLoydians, especialy with the current problems between the UN and Tetris L-Shaped Block.
