The Federal Republic of Oliverry or Oliverry, French: La république fédérale d'Oliverrie, Limbrogidlian: Feudaler Republit Oliverit, is a highly developped and democratic country in Atlantian Oceania. It is located at the North point of Calania. Oliverry is also a member of the Strategic Defense League.

Oliverrians can't be considered as a whole when it comes to political beliefs. In the South of the country, they are socially socialists and economically communists. The North of the country is seen as socially conservative and economically liberal. The centre is generally socially liberal and economically protectionist. The south is seen as socialist, if not communist. So, many things differenciate one group from another. For instance, in 2000, when the government decided to legalize same-sex marriages, polls in southern and central Oliverry shown that the population was favourable. But, in the north, the same polls showed that nearly everybody was against the motion, even if it passed and was never revoked since then. But everyone in the nation was happy about the fact Marijuana was legalized in 1992 (when the Marijuana Party won the elections). Citizens enjoy one of the highest levels of civil rights in Atlantian Oceania, but political rights level could be higher, as the population is not very often asked about what they want.

Before the arrival of Jioulit Twaxlit and Option Oliverry to the head of the country in 2024, the country's foreign policies were quasi-unexisting. The only attempt at a foreign policy was done by Sam Gagnon in 2012 about whether or not Oliverry should join the SDL, but the proposal was revoked by the parliament. Since 2024, Oliverrian foreign policies tend to complicate. The Oliverrian government does everything it can to make the economy better, as are proving the late subventions to Oliverrian companies and the international treaties it tries to sign. Politically, the present government tries to make positive contacts with democratic nations. Lately, the joining of the SDL proved that Oliverry was ready to prepare in case of war.


The history of Oliverry can be divided in 6 parts: Ancient times(up to 1451 AD), The First Kingdom(1451-1801), the First Empire(1801-1899), the Second Kingdom(1899-1931), the Republic(1931-2004), the Second Empire(2004-2007) and the 2nd Republic(2007-)

Ancient times

In old times, many Europeans came to Oliverry's today's land to trade with the inhabitants of the time: the Limbrogidlians. Those Limbrogidlians were ruling on a territory that is 4 times Oliverry. But, in 1347, when Europeans started to establish colonies all around their empire, the Limbrogidlians were going back to the 3 provinces called today "East Limbrogidlia", "West Limbrogidlia" and "Limbrogidlie Francophone". In 1400, they formed a new kingdom: The Limbrogidlian Kingdom. But there were tensions in the Kingdom and, 1447, Limbrogidlia separated in the 3 provinces we know today. From 1400 to 1650, European colonists lost the trace of those Limbrogidlians.

The First Kingdom

Oliverry was founded in 1456 by a Metis(Semi-Limbrogidlian, Semi-European):John Oliver: the king Oliver I. John Oliver was an intellectual for his time: He was the first "English Outerlander" to study at University of Oxford. Once he came back, he was made governor of the colony by then King of England. Finally, he got to unite with the French colony south of Marshalliston to form Oliverry, nation named after John. Marshalliston was the biggest European settlement in today's Oliverrian area. Oliver I was a good king and accepted many liberties, abolished servitude to the king (such things were enforced both by the King of England and the King of France) etc. He ruled on the Kingdom from 1456 to 1500.

The First Empire

The next 10 rulers(Oliver II to Oliver X) rule from 1500 to 1800. During that period occured a great period of stability in Oliverry, with the territory gradually getting bigger as new discoveries were made around Oliverry. In 1801, came to the throne the first fully bilingual king in Oliverry, known as King Bertrand. Bertrand learned well from his father. His father taught him about his ancestry and that charmed Bertrand as, once he came to the throne, he published a royal decree in order to claim absolute power and to be declared an emperor. Now known as Emperor Bertrand, he made many unpopular decisions, which made many noblesmen escape from Oliverry (event known as "Le Grand Ménage" in Oliverry). For example, Laurent de la Salle, comte de la Salle, escaped the country to join Bettia and proved to be critical for the [[Vephrall|Vephrese] history. Back to Oliverry, the territory until that was made roughly today's province of Capital. By the time, the Limbrogidlians shared their territory in 3 parts: the Limbrogidlie Française in South, Western Limbrogidlia in most of northern Oliverry and Eastern Limbrogidlia, made up roughly of today's province. Bertand is seen as the uniter of Oliverry, as at the end of his reign, he annexed the Limbrogidlias and expanded the country's territory to roughly today's boundaries. Bertrand also spent a lot during his reign and the nation's finance were almost unexisting. Bertrand's nephew, Oliver XI, had to face very big problems as he could not respect any agreement he had passed before, due to the very bad state in which the State's finances were. Western Limbrogidlia took the opportunity of that weakened empire and revolted in 1876. Western Limbrogidlia declared their independance as the Republic of Limbrogidlia. The Republic was short-lived as, after a very aggressive advertising strategy for recruitment of people for the Imperial Army. As part of this enthusiasm, Limbrogidlia had to surrender on December 16, 1876 and Oliverry recovered its national integrity.

The Second Kingdom

In 1899, an uprising caught everyone by surprise as the peasants, led by Rodger McPhee, destroyed everything where they passed. The movement spread to the military and, finally, into cities. That movement finally led to the deposition of Emperor Bertrand II. In 1900, he was beheaded as he was found guilty of many charges. In 1900, as the House of Oliver, who led the country for about 450 years, was deposed officially, the States-General met and elected Sir John Winlancer, Earl of Middlesborough, as king of Oliverry. The States-General also decided to adopt a constitution, forcing the king to accept it. With the constitution, the king had the effective power to remove any cabinet done, to refuse to sanction any law he wanted and to call for elections when he wasn't happy about the turnout. In the first ever elections, only men with a house worth at least Ø5,000 were able to vote, which were the same conditions as for the elections to the States-General. He never had to use such prerogatives, as Conservatives had a majority in the House of Commons for almost 30 years, a necessity in a system based on Westminster's parliament.

In 1929, the Democratic Party, a relatively recent party created by desilusionned Liberals, tired of the Liberals' Libertarian stance on both Human rights and economy. They won thanks to a Social democratic and a Labour-appealing agenda, which gave them a majority over the two other parties.

The Republic

In 1931, King John died from a stroke without anyone in his succeeding list. Oliverry had been very agitated for John's last 2 years of reign. The Democrats, who thought the King was not necessary in a democratic Oliverry, did everything they could to get rid of the King's approval by trying to pass constiutional modifications. But the House of Lords blocked every try they did to pass suck constitutional changes. At the death without any successor of King John, three stances were opposing: Those willing to replace the King by a President, those willing to elect another King and those, smaller but still very strong, willing to revert back to a House of Oliver monarchy. Each stance had its supporters and even had armies in case of a civil war. Tripartite discussions were held (known as the "Peace Negotiations without any war"), officializing the fact Oliverry would remain a democracy. The "Oliverites" pulled out of the discussions and created their own party. Discussions were further held between the two remaining camps, without any significant improvements. Johann Lischwinsberg, then Prime Minister of Oliverry and de facto leader of the nation, unilaterally decided to place a request at the parliament in order for a vote to be undertaken to promote himself to the position of President of Oliverry. Yeas won at unanimity of the House, so he was made President of Oliverry and called for the first elections of the newly-founded republic.

The Great changes era

In 1997, a new political force took form in Oliverry. Olivier Turcotte, Green Member of Parliament for St-Jean--Les-Rivières, had called for a meeting on the future of the country on March 12, 1997. That meeting was known as "A Federation: Yay, or Nay?". The conclusions of that meeting were that, unless a new party was formed, a Federation, the only way to respect the different areas of the nation's differences, would not be possible. Turcotte called for the creation of the Federalist Party, which had its founding congress on December 14. 28 MPs joined Turcotte to that new party, making the number of members to 29.

In the 2000 elections, Turcotte's party won an overwhelming majority in the house, having more than 65% of the seats alone. Later, Turcotte was elected as the first president of the 21st Century. Under his presidency, Oliverry was profoundly changed. First, he was the first president to name a Prime Minister, Sam Gagnon, to lead the cabinet. Other presidents never did such a thing before, to unite all executive powers through one person's hands. Turcotte nominated a committee to create the boundaries of the future provinces. The Constitutional Act that created the provinces as separate entities was adopted with 85% of Yeas on February 16, 2001. The first provincial elections were called for July 1, 2001.

During his first mandate, Turcotte pushed harder the Social Democratic agenda of the former Green-Marijuana government. His government kept having a liberal approach on civil liberties, legalizing gay marriages for example. But it emphazing on the people in its economic al policy. In 2004, Turcotte was reelected with 80% of the vote in the first round of the presidential election. Something that prompted him to put forward a bill making him the Emperor of Oliverry. But before, he had to find some credibility to his claims. Something easy to do, as he found he had ancestry with Bertrand I, the first monarch to title himself "Emperor of Oliverry". With such a bill being approved by the parliament, Olivier Turcotte was made "Emperor Olivier" on July 1, 2004. Many people voted against, as they thought it could mean less power for the people. In 2005, the claims were made true, as the Emperor found a way to pass decrees without the backing of the parliament. In 2007, tired of that "pseudo-dictatorship", a group, known as "Free Oliverry from it's oppressor" (FOFIO), sent threat letters to the Emperor that they would kill him if he doesn't resign in the next 30 days. Olivier finally quit his throne on July 16, with no one named to replace him.

The second Republic

In 2007, the Emperor resigned and the parliament declared an election. Sam Gagnon, the prime minister, became the 11th president of Oliverry. In 2011, Oliverry got split in 2 parts: Oliverry in the southern french part, and Limbrogidlia in the Northern part. In 2014, a vote of non-confidence made the Federalist party declare new elections, which they lost. The Neo-Democratic party won the majority at the parliament. A new president has been elected as well: François Paquin, elected on the first turn

School system

In Oliverry, school in Mandatory from 6 to 14. After, there is non-mandatory school(students are not forced to go to these, but this is strongly recommended that they go in these)

School grades

Each grades has its particularities, like the mandatory subjects, the age, etc.

Grade Primaire

This grade is for people aged from 6 to 12, each age having its own grade. So, it is divided in 7 years. In this grade, the focus is put on learn by fun. It is divided in 2 parts: Grade Primaire Debutant and Grade Primaire Finissant.

Grade Primaire Debutant

The Debutant contains the 4 first years of the Grade Primaire. Subjects taught to the students are mainly Maths, French, Physical Education and Arts. No English will be taught, unless Students go to an English institution. In this case, English replaces French as a taught language. At the end of the 4th year, there is a big test that decides if the student is apt to go in the Grade Primaire Finissant. If he passes the test, he can. These tests are standardized by the Ministry of Education so that it's the same for every school of the country.

Grade Primaire Finissant

The Finissant contains the last 3 years of the Primaire. Subjects taught are mainly the same, but, they are becoming a bit harder. Some subjects are added, like English and Geography/History. At the end of the 3 years, each subject has a big exam, that reunites everything the student learned in the last 7 years. If he succesfully do it, he can go to the Grade Secondaire. Else, he has to restart his 7th year of Grade Primaire.

Grade Secondaire

This grade lasts 2 years. It is for students aged 13 and 14. As usually, the ages are only there for usual purpose only. Subjects are nearly the same, but they are harder. English is becoming learned as French is. Natural Sciences are added to the mandatory subjects list, but Arts leaves its place to Dramatic Arts. After the 2 years, there is a final exam for each subjects that decides if the student receives his Diplome d'Etudes Generales. If he does, the student has the right to go in non-mandatory studies or to stay home, do nothing but going on IRC.

Grade Tertiaire

The first non-mandatory grade. In this grade, the student has choices to do on the subjects he wants to have. This grade is mandatory to go in Oliverrian Universities or colleges. Sure, without that, the student may try the Professional Formation programs so that he can have a job, but these are not as good as colleges or universities programs, and the student often has to perfect his formation in colleges to have a higher job. This grade lasts 2 years and decides the admissibility of the person to college or university.

College et Universite

College and University is the last grade in Oliverrian Scholarship. It works like in every part of the world.
