For the past 4 centuries, Maxime Ita Vero has been a subject of interest for many an Uunvarian scholar. The continent’s extreme xenophobia and intraregional strife have been headliners for ages, and has actually served as a cynosure of unacceptable protocol for rest of the continents in Uunvar. While the island continent may hold a rich and ancient history in the scope of each individual country, all of that is lost in the majority of historian’s eyes when contrasted with its erroneousness and social abhorrence.
Origin of Nations in Maxime Ita Vero
The various nations of Bon Suenyos each have their own deep and unique history. Whether it involves the austere Nachtwald, the aboriginal people of Da Trump, the peace revering Servavitians, or the discordant Bon Suenyosians, all can tell their tale of development and modernization into the forms the countries they have come to be.
If one were to view the inception of Veronian*1 nations chronologically, in accordance with archeological finds, the 6000-year-old Da Trumpians far precede any other, being the aboriginals of the continent. The next people to fall in line historically are the roughneck Nachtwaldians, aged at around 1500 years. The last two nations to have any archived proof of ancient existence are Servavit, which is 650 years old, and Bon Suenyos, being a meager 320 years of age. On another hand, however, when chronologizing the inhabitants by documented history, the Nachtwaldians are found to be the oldest, with their earliest text dated at 1169 years. While historians seem to enjoy deliberating the exact reason for this, the majority have stood by a breakthrough from the Veronian Historical Institute, later corroborated by the Trumpian Society of Historians. Field workers from the VHI found a hidden palace of the ancient tribal king Coreus Lewandowskus. Despite having a reign of leadership lasting only 73 years - lasting from 1097 years of the nation’s existence to 2070 of them - his regime’s motto lived on for the next three millennia. That now infamous motto was, “To despise all recording of knowledge is to enamor all protection of society as sacred and clean.” Therefore, any and all historical documents were prohibited from being made and destroyed when discovered.
Interaction between the Societies of Maxime Ita Vero
In the face of our modern society, efforts have been made to increase intracontinental connections, largely through the formation of supranational organisations and recent supporting of local and intracontinental trade. However, on the distant world of Uunvar, this stress on continental unity is absent - for the most part. One continent in particular, Maxime Ita Vero, is actually experiencing increasing continental disunion, and has experienced this ever since the meeting of the occupying nations.
Due to the reclusive tendencies present throughout the peoples of Maxime Ita Vero, their cultures have remained fairly unique, with infinitesimal amounts of acculturation and/or assimilation occurring. Each of the residing peoples prefer to keep to themselves, having little interaction with each other, save for that concerning trade and it’s necessary transportation. Yet despite the reclusiveness, xenophobia, and little interaction, the states of Bon Suenyos have all encountered each other in some form.
The first two cultures to interact with each other within the continent were the autochthonous Da Trumpians and the newer Bon Suenyosians, whose origin is unknown*2. This encounter, which took place in the Valley of Cabras Niños, was a virulent one. Since both of the powers (Son Buenyos was a large city-state and Da Trump was an emerging state) were seeking to claim the Valley - abundant in sumptuous lumber as it was - for their own, and neither side would back down, a series of skirmishes known as the Forest Fires befell. The Valley has now become the site of the Maxime Disputed Territories.
Interactions involving the other states have been scarce in number, with the only noted ones - excluding trade - following as,
The Los Soles migration from Son Buenos to Servavit
The Sacapuntas’ mating with some of the Nachtwaldian population
Nachtwald’s numerous attacks on lost wanderers and Sevavitian cartographers.
As the continent continues to mature, expansion in large-scale interregional trading (such as that of large manufacturers and corporate conglomerates), transcontinental immigration into Maxime Ita Vero is at a record high. This is majoritively due to corporations relocating or establishing new firms on the massive island in order to capitalize on these wholesale trading covenants. There are no supranational organisations present that involve any of the continent’s nations, and scholars foresee no change in this reality for many centuries to come. None of the states have showed any semblance of a desire for increased communication and interaction; this attitude has even infected the small-scale and personalized international trading efficacy for the economically booming nations.
*1Veroan is the term used to describe peoples from, residing in, or culturally associated with the continent Maxime Ita Vero. It’s a term akin to European or Asian.
*2A recent archeological discovery near the mouth of Lake Lago has led some historians to believe that the original Bon Suenyosian settlers arrived from another continent. The old remains of a wooden ship, which constitutes the discovery, have plans to be be traced back to origin.
