    Eritrea-icon.png Eritreaball Killing innocent civilians

    Eritreaball, officially known as the Killland North Korea of Africa (at least he doesn't nuke anyone) State of Kill Eritreaball, is a killing sovereign state and single-party presidential republic/Authoritarian Dictatorship in the Horn of Africa. His clay is composed of 8 subdivisions known as regions, along with his capital Eritrea-icon (division).png Asmaraball, giving him a total area of 45,406 square miles, making him the 105th largest country in the world. With a population of only 4.475 million as of 2011, which makes him the world's 118th most populous country, and one of the very unpopular human migration destinations. He also acts like flippy from happy tree friends.

    His violent nature makes it a challenge for him to join any international organizations and alliances. Despite this, he was able to join the UN-icon.png United Nationsball and become a member of the African Union-icon.png African Unionball.

    He has not held a national election since independence. He loves killing people and is considered by some to be the one official countryball worse and more brutal than North Korea-icon.png North Koreaball. He is so terrible that many of Eritreaballs try to escape the country to migrate to Europe and Israel. Eritreaball hates this because he is very poor (he actually has the money to give his people a somewhat better life but doesn't because he doesn't care about them unless they're his killing victims). He has no real friends (besides Israel-icon.png Israelcube because he protects him from terrorist and helps him in a war against Yemen-icon.png Yemenball ) as he is very insane but the closest thing would probably be a largely inactive terrorist organization.

    His national day is May 24th.



    Much of Eritreaball's earliest history dates back to Egyptian times when it was a part of Ancient Egypt-icon.png Ancient Egyptian Empireball, in the territory known as the Land of Pwene. Once Ancient Egyptian Empireball died and became irrelevant, the tribes of Ethiopia-icon.png Ethiopiaball and Israel-icon.png Israelcube united to form D'mt-icon.png D'mtball, a kingdomball of mixed indigenous and other Semitic origins. D'mt-icon.png D'mtball was founded around the region of Tigray-icon.png Tigrayball, following the years, as it had internal splits, Kingdom of Aksum-icon.png Kingdom of Aksumball united it with Amhara-icon.png Amharaball.

    Eritreaball's territory after the decline of Kingdom of Aksum-icon.png Kingdom of Aksumball became Medri Bahri-icon.png Medri Bahriball, a local Tigray monarchy that would be a constituent entity of Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball through most of its history. Medri Bahri-icon.png Medri Bahriball would end up occupied by Adal-icon.png Adal Sultanateball for some time, and this is the origins of Eritreaball kebab removing spirit. After Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball defeated Adal-icon.png Adal Sultanateball in war and retook Medri Bahri-icon.png Medri Bahriball, Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball started to come near Eritrean territories and started a long period of disputes between Ethiopia and the Ottomans for the area.

    Medri Bahri-icon.png Medri Bahriball was an important trade post in the region, Portuguese Empire-icon.png Portugalball described him as a descendant of Kingdom of Aksum-icon.png Kingdom of Aksumball. When new war between started between Adal-icon.png Adal Sultanateball and Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball, Medri Bahri-icon.png Medri Bahriball mostly aided Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball, with Portuguese Empire-icon.png Portugalball using its ports to arm Amharaballs.

    Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball was upset with it and in the middle of the century tried to get more territories in Eritreaball, but ended up defeated and Medri Bahri-icon.png Medri Bahriball became loyal to Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball again, together, they removed kebab, with Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball withdrawing definitely from Eritrean territory. Since then, Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball has been regarded to as the first country in history to ever remove kebab, with the title being re-invented by Serbia-icon.png Serbiaball in the modern world.

    For many many years Medri Bahri-icon.png Medri Bahriball remained in the process it had been in: aid Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball in removing kebabs, such as the Sultanate of Aussaball of Afar-icon.png Afarball. Finally change came in the 19th Century. Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball had a Tigray Emperor, Yohannes IV, and after he was crowned, internal conflicts between Tigrayball clans started, with Medri Bahri-icon.png Medri Bahriball allying with Khedivate of Egypt-icon.png Khedivate of Egyptball and Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball against Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball.

    At this time, Italian-Empire-icon.png Kingdom of Italyball started to expand to the region and exercise influence, Medri Bahri-icon.png Medri Bahriball allied with the Italians and fought on their side against Mahdist Sudanball to consolidate territorial domain. Italian-Empire-icon.png Kingdom of Italyball then tried to do their first intervention in Eritreaball but were defeated by Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball in the Battle of Dogali, resulting later in Tigrayballs loyal to the Emperor occupying Medri Bahri-icon.png Medri Bahriball.

    Italian-Empire-icon.png Kingdom of Italyball started doing deals within Ethiopiaball in order to sabotage Emperor Yohannes, notably with Negus Menelik of Shewa, that received Italian weapons to rebel against him. However, following the death of the Emperor in the war against Mahdist Sudanball, Menelik didn't have to wage war to siege power, Italian-Empire-icon.png Kingdom of Italyball then took the opportunity to occupy Eritreaball. Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball then signed a treaty that allowed Italian-Empire-icon.png Kingdom of Italyball to occupy those territories as their leaders were still loyal to Yohannes, and that's how Eritreaball stopped being Medri Bahri-icon.png Medri Bahriball and became Italian Eritrea-icon.png Italian Eritreaball.

    As Emperor Menelik took control of Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball, Tigrayballs almost accepted an Italian proposal to invade Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball to topple him down. However, they realized Italian-Empire-icon.png Kingdom of Italyball was just using them to conquer all of Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball, so Tigrayballs allied with Menelik against Italian-Empire-icon.png Kingdom of Italyball during the First Italo-Ethiopian War. In the first year of the war, they tried to drive the Italians out of Eritreaball in a rebellion launched by Dejazmach Bahta, but they were defeated. After it, Italian-Empire-icon.png Kingdom of Italyball moved on to invade Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball and this time was the one who got defeated.

    After the war, Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball and Italian-Empire-icon.png Kingdom of Italyball mutually recognized their borders, with Emperor Menelik not invading Italian Eritrea-icon.png Italian Eritreaball. Italian-Empire-icon.png Kingdom of Italyball then could finally do stuff on its colony. During WW1, Italian-Empire-icon.png Kingdom of Italyball recruited many native Eritreanballs to fight on their fronts. Their rule would last until WW2, where Italian-Empire-icon.png Kingdom of Italyball invaded Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball in a violent war using machine guns, airplanes, and even poison gas, creating Italian East Africa-icon.png Italian East Africaball that was composed by Ethiopiaball, Eritreaball and Somaliaball with the exception of French Somaliland-icon.png French Somalilandball and British Somaliland-icon.png British Somalilandball.

    Then, UK-icon.png UKball had beaten Italian-Empire-icon.png Kingdom of Italyball during the East African campaign and placed Eritreaball under British military administration and allied forces so his fate could be determind. In the absence of administration of Eritreaball's statues, UK-icon.png UKball's administration continued for the remainder of WW2 until 1950 when USA-icon.png USAball passed a resolution with the agreement of UK-icon.png UKball formulating the creation of an autonomous Eritreaball within the restored Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball. In 1952 Eritreaball became independent from UK-icon.png UKball and was made an autonomous part Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball.

    In 1961, a war in Eritreaball started, with Eritreaball being fully annexed in 1962 by Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball after a separatist movement called ELF started to attack the Ethiopian army. The ELF was mostly made by former members of the colonial army of Italian Eritrea-icon.png Italian Eritreaball that were still loyal to it. While the unionist sentiment with Ethiopiaball was strong in Eritreaball, as Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball didn't improve the region through the years, it failed to secure support from Eritreanballs, therefore the ELF had some growth. The ELF would be supported by Arab League-icon.png Arab Leagueball in opposition to Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball friendship with Israel-icon.png Israelcube.

    During the 70s, the ELF had become more leftist and this angered the most conservative members, so a split happened, with the formation of a socialist faction known as the EPLF. The two factions started to fight each other for the leadership of Eritreaball independence movement, and the EPLF emerged victoriously, they had received aid from Cuba-icon.png Cubaball. With the beginning of Derg-icon.png Dergball, the situation in Eritreaball was likely to improve, with Eritrean commander Aman Andom assuming the leadership of the Derg. However, after he got purged following internal conflicts inside of the organization, separatists in Eritreaball used that as a pretext to start a new insurgency. Just like those in Tigrayball, they would become part of the Hoxhaist and Maoist opposition to the government, that later started a period of terrorism and ended up purged and split into different factions.

    Both the TPLF of Tigrayball and the EPLF looked after PSR Albania-icon.png PSR Albaniaball and China-icon.png Chinaball for help as Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball backed Derg-icon.png Dergball. But they showed to have few ideological affiliations and started to relate with USA-icon.png USAball and UK-icon.png UKball that wanted to sabotage Derg-icon.png Dergball, in this period they to got a lot of weapons and financial aid. The war in all of Ethiopiaball got worse in this time as a consequence of the Ogaden War, Derg-icon.png Dergball couldn't exercise direct power in most of Eritreaball, so it spent most of the period between the end of the 70s and half of the 80s trying to crush the separatists, but had no major success.

    In the end of the 80s Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball announced it would stop supporting PDR Ethiopia-icon.png PDR Ethiopiaball (the successor of Derg-icon.png Dergball) war efforts. Following the end of the Cold War, the opposition front to PDR Ethiopia-icon.png PDR Ethiopiaball known as EPRDF took control of Addis Ababa-icon.png Addis Abababall and overthrew the communist leader Mengistu Haile Mariam. As the EPLF had backed them and was a close ally of the TPLF that dominated the coalition, they started to engage in independence talks in 1991 under the supervision of the USA-icon.png USAball, that had been backing its independence efforts. In 1993 following a referendum under the supervision of the UN-icon.png UNball that was overwhelmingly in favor of independence, Eritreaball gained its independence with former combatant Isaias Afwerki becoming the president. The EPLF became the PFDJ, the party that currently dominates Eritreaball politics.

    However, it all started wrong for the newly independent state. First, because a huge economic crisis emerged after Ethiopia-icon.png Ethiopiaball changed the style of the money that Eritreaball was flooded in and following the war it had with Yemen-icon.png Yemenball, who stole his clay in the Hanish Islands, without trade because of the war and no money in the treasury Eritreaball became one of poorest nations in the world, with huge inflation. Following the years Eritreaball felt like everyone was trying to sabotage him and take his territory, he also felt abandoned by those who pretended to care about him like USA-icon.png USAball. A lot of internal struggles happened in the 90s and it ended with the war against Ethiopia-icon.png Ethiopiaball in 1998, increasing its deadly hatred and giving origin to the conflict between the two countries that would persist until 2018. The bad experience of the time significantly shaped Eritreaball's current personality.

    The 2000s were also difficult for Eritreaball, the economic situation got worse and it started to be isolated and blocked from most trade organizations. The countries around it such as Ethiopia-icon.png Ethiopiaball, Sudan-icon.png Sudanball and Djibouti-icon.png Djiboutiball in which he went to war in 2008 all would have some sort of border skirmishes with Eritreaball, even Egypt-icon.png Egyptball managed to find problems with him. As if it was not enough, Gulf countries such as UAE-icon.png UAEball, Saudi Arabia-icon.png Saudi Arabiaball and Qatar-icon.png Qatarball all plotted against Eritreaball as they have interests in controlling the straits of Aden in Yemen-icon.png Yemenball.

    Eritreaball grew increasingly paranoid and more isolated from the world, the government started to take some insane internal measures, resulting in a migrant crisis, Eritrean citizens will try to escape the country in hopes of getting something better but will most likely end up doing horrible services in Europe and the Gulf countries, or in detention camps in Israel-icon.png Israelcube. EU-icon.png EUball also started to crackdown on Eritrean citizens that were sending money to the country, worsening everything as there was no foreign currency in the country anymore. On top of that, ethnic and religious problems started to appear in the country, being fomented by Ethiopia-icon.png Ethiopiaball and others, there is a real risk of the country's Balkanization.

    As of 2018, with the changing of government in Ethiopia-icon.png Ethiopiaball, Eritreaball made peace with it and solved the border issues, now relations between the two are very good. Friendship with Ethiopia-icon.png Ethiopiaball allowed Eritreaball to normalize and start friendly relations with Somalia-icon.png Somaliaball and Djibouti-icon.png Djiboutiball as well. This is all very important to Eritreaball, as finally they are having good relations with its neighbours, the Horn of Africa is finally seeing some peace and cooperation.

    Eritreaball now is backing its ally Ethiopia-icon.png Ethiopiaball in the Tigray Military Intervention, as they hate the TPLF for what happened in the past few decades when they ruled Ethiopiaball. Eritreaball also has also seen some discreet improvements within all these years, with its capital city Asmaraball being the main example.

    Personality Traits

    Eritreaball is an insane yet reliable countryball (though is not loyal enough to anyone other than himself to prove it) that usually tries to find ways to show off its incredible strength. The countryball usually interacts with other regional countryballs, mainly those fairly close to the Arabian peninsula. He stays away from what his father does, and it is clear to tell that is because Eritreaball's father, Ethiopiaball, likely hates Eritreaball. This is due to weakness caused by the relevance of Eritrea as well as the fact that since the relevance of Eritrea, Ethiopia has widely been mocked by all the other African countryballs. Eritreaball is very similar to North Korea-icon.png North Koreaball but somehow manages to be worse without much military power (which is seriously bad). Strangely, he has a neutral relationship with USA-icon.png USAball (mostly because he is one of the few stable countries in the region). Many of their civillians have some military experience, due to it being mandatory for them to attend military camp after high school.
