The Grand Duchy of Sinisland is a Nation located in the Region of Rineu,in an Island, at the center of the Continental mass of Rineu, that has made the Nation progress in economies and politics.


First Years

Firstly habited by human beings since 700 BC, the Sinisland became the center of economy and politics of the surrounding land. With a brilliant mind, they soon were high over in regional influence for nearly 1000 years.

Conquered with no resistance by Nassauer Explorers, the island became the new economical center of the Nassauer Empire, leaded by the King James Mildereij, near 1609. Small, with productive lands and an excellent port, this made the territory an economical power in the Region.

With a big inmigration rate, Sinisland became home of nassauers that were looking for money, because Nassau was passing by a crisis that left the nation without money, so, the desesperation of looking for an economic progress disolved controling the rich island. And, as the inmigrants were received with pleasure by the natives, they mixed up and created a new wealthy and smart social group, that dominated Sinisland, and it does still now.

The Status of Grand Duchy

In 1674, James I died and his son, James II, became the King of Nassau. James II, with a broad mind, and a sharp eye for business, broadened, the limits of the Sinislandian economy, that passed to the creoles and natives hands in no more than a decade. A golden age in Sinisland was born, prosperity existed for nearly 46 years. James II, in his will, decided to give the third son of the Nassauer Royal Family the Sinisland.

Obtaining the state of Grand Duchy, the first Duc was Alexander, that governed over Sinisland for nearly 16 years, mantainig the line of economical and political progress of the Nation.

The death of Alexander, that was a true friend of Sinislanders, and was aware with their power, died in 1707, with no descendance, although his children would not inherit the Duchy.

The War of Three Months

As the Duchy had no leader, the Sinislanders revolted from Nassau in 1708, under the leadership of a rich businessman called Olivier Pousson, and started a war against the mother country, destroying a powder deposit of the Nassauer Royal Army. The Admiral, Lord Wrichett, dispatched their attack firing the Port of Bleuen, the principal base of the revolters.

After nearly three major battles, two taken in the Sea, with the objective of delaying the disembarkment of Nassauer Troops, finally, Lord Wrichett achieved his goal and in Gairinth, he beated 20,000 revolters with only 8,000 men.

Since that devastating war, the Sinislanders mantained ordered under the leadership of 43 Ducs, mantaining prosperity for 400 years, with a discrete regional participation
