Estoniaball, officially the
Nordic Republic of Estoniaball, is a countryball located in Northern Europe (Don't call it Eastern European). It can into Nordic is bordered by Latviaball to the south, Russiaball to the west and east, and is located south of Finlandball, and east of Swedenball. The countryball is divided into 15 countyballs, including the capital Tallinnball located in the north, giving it a total area of 17,462 square miles, making it the 129th largest countryball in the world. As of 2019, it has a population of 1.323 million inhabitants.
Like most former communist/soviet states, after the fall of Soviet Unionball, Estonia decided to join EUball and NATOball in order to gain protection from Russiaball. Despite the attempts however, it has failed to join the Nordic Councilball as it is not considered "Nordic" (except by maybe Finlandball).
It is sad because Swedenball won't let it into Nordic, the reason why is because it is not directed to Baltics for it's language, which is obviously finnic. Despite not being Nordic, it is rich, unlike its depressive siblings.
Ancient Era (appr. 9000 BC - 1218 AD)
Estoniaball is Finno-Uralic. It is known to have descended from the ancient Uralball, who left the Urals around 11 000 BC. Uralball split into numerous countryballs, two of whom decided to go further into Siberia ( Nenetsball, Khanty-Mansiball), the Finnicball that went westward also split, some Finnic countryballs reside in what is now Russiaball ( Mari Elball, Udmurtiaball) and Hungaryball that left the Urals millennia later and went to live with Hunball for some time before their conquest in Central Europe.
Europe was basically uninhabited until 9000 BC, when Finnicball settled first in what is now Estoniaball. Their grand cultural heritage tells the story of how Finlandball was born: Those Estoniaballs that were deemed to unintelligent by Estoniaball chieftains were deported north. But Finlandball was still intact in culture and language, as its badly organised empire of chiefdoms' borders managed to extend from what is now Novgorodball to Scotlandball (settled by Finnicballs from Saaremaa) and from Samiball to what is now Polandball before the introduction of Indo-Aryan countryballs to Europe.
By miracle, the asiatic-looking Finnicball (1ball) gradually turned into a darkish blonde 2ball. In time with the populous increase of Indo-European countryballs in Europe, Finnicball's borders were pushed back, maintaining nowaday Finlandball, Estoniaball, Latviaball, and some of Lithuaniaball. Through the centuries small differences started developing between Finnicball chiefdom speech, becoming different languages and giving birth to Estoniaball, Finlandball and Livoniansball.
Estoniaball was feared by Russiaball and Swedenball (Vikingball) for brutally crushing their attempts at invasion and by ransacking and burning down their settlements in return for their intrusive ambitions. Estoniaball didn't know about agriculture until approximately 900 CE – 1000, when its chiefdoms slowly started adopting Christianity. Foreign missionaries mainly from Denmarkball baptised Estoniaball and taught it about growing crops. Before starting ploughing fields, Estoniaball herded aurochs and horses. Lithuaniaball had already pushed Finlandball out of Lithuaniaball by that time, Lithuaniaballs intermingled with Livoniansballs, and Latviaball was born. Estoniaball forged Damascus steel from bog iron and sold it to Swedenball, costing them a lot of silver, from which Estoniaball could scrape hõbevalge (Silver dust), which was believed to have medicinal benefits.
In the 13th century, the Teutonic Orderball needed new territories after great losses in the Crusades, so it claimed Estoniaball wasn't Christian and needs to be baptised again. That seemed like a ridiculous allegation for Estoniaball. It got upset and denied it. Thus the Teutonic Orderball and its branch, the Livonian Orderball started a war with Estoniaball, later joined by Denmarkball, Swedenball, and Russiaball . During the Muistne vabadusvõitlus (Ancient Struggle for Freedom) a couple of Estoniaball nobles pledged allegiance to Denmarkball and continued ruling afterwards, serving the Denmarkball cause. Estoniaball lost their lands and their freedom after two decades of defending against them to the Livonian Orderball and Denmarkball. Thus Estoniaball grew to hate Christianity.
Era of Terra Mariana
After a century of hard labour, repressions and high taxes, Estoniaball revolted in 1343-1345, later deemed Jüriöö ülestõus (Uprising of St. George's Night). Estoniaball burned down hundreds of fortresses and manors. Denmarkball couldn't suppress the uprisings, so it sold its Estoniaball territories to Livonian Orderball, who decided to hold negotiations with the chosen four kings of Estoniaball. The Livonian Orderball demanded all Estoniaballs, who were guilty of murdering the monks of Padise monastery, be put to the sword, for which Estoniaball can have back its own rule. Estoniaball refused to kill its own brethren, for which the kings were butchered at the negotiating table and soon after the peasant armies with lowered morale were crushed as well one by one.
In 1558, Russiaball demanded Tartuball to pay debts from three centuries ago, when Tartuball was conquered and ruled over by Russiaball for some years while Muistne vabadusvõitlus was going on. Tartuball refused to pay, so Russiaball attacked, starting Liivi sõda (Livonian War). Russiaball had almost taken all of Estoniaball and wanted to install the prince of Denmarkball as the vassal ruler, when Swedenball landed in Tallinnball and took North of Estoniaball away from Russiaball. Polandball conquered South of Estoniaball and Denmarkball kept Saaremaa. Thus Liivi sõda ended in 1583.
Era of Swedish Rule
Swedenball managed to get all of Estoniaball under its control via treaties after Liivi sõda. Swedenball was Lutheran, meaning felt the need for illiterate peasants to be able to read and comprehend the word of God, which is why Swedenball tried to push through many reforms (it even founded a gymnasium in Tallinnball in 1631 and an academy in Tartuball in 1632 that were meant for people from all statuses, although that didn't take effect), but the Germanyball noble descendants of the Livonian Orderball were too stubborn and unenlightened to see the need to fund the proposed parochial primary schools nor write down and standardise the Estonian language. Before Põhjasõda (Northern War) Swedenball started the reduction, reclaiming fiefs granted to the nobility. That turned many nobles against Swedenball's rule and the nobility started conspiring against it.
At the start of Põhjasõda, Swedenball had a major advance against Denmarkball, Polandball and Russiaball. Denmarkball surrendered immediately and Polandball was crushed without haste. But as time passed, Swedenball became too greedy and finally began losing battle after battle to Russiaball. Thus, by 1710, Russiaball had conquered all of Estoniaball.
Era of Russian Rule
For a whole century, little changed in the abysmal conditions in which Estoniaball had to live. Crop failures led to numerous famines, hundreds of women miscarried, most deaths were caused by malnourishment, cholera, typhus, dysentery and tuberculosis. Parochial primary schools started slowly popping up around the country and Estoniaball became literate in an instance. The first printed Bible in keskmurre (1739), the academy in Tartuball founded by Swedes (1802), the abolishment of serfdom (1816-19), Estoniaball peasants beginning to attend Tartu Ülikool (University of Tartu), Õpetatud Eesti Selts (Learned Estonian Society) (founded by Estoniaball students and Germanyball estophiles) (1838), and the material for the national epic of Kalevipoeg (Kalevide aka Son of Kalev) are the most known examples of 18th and 19th century Estonian literature. Estoniaball peasants were given surnames derived from either the name of their farmstead or parent, their occupation, their appearance or their characteristic or any of those mentioned translated to German. Estoniaball started documenting all of its culture. Estoniaball began buying back its farmstead lands from Germanyball nobility, taking part in local politics and cultivating parochial choral and instrumental music, which led to the long tradition of the Estonian Song and Dance Festival since 1869.
With the start of Russification, Estoniaball national movement was outlawed and Estonian wasn't allowed to be spoken in schools. Germanyball governor was replaced with a Russiaball governor and Russiaball tried to convert Estoniaball into orthodoxy. After the revolution of 1905, some bans were either lifted or loosened. In 1917 the old Russiaball collapsed and the new Russiaball granted autonomy for Estoniaball. Within a small period in February 1918, when Russiaball forces retreated from the arriving Germanyball forces and no foreign power was stationed there, Estoniaball declared independence.
Era of Independence
In November 1918 Germanyball surrendered to the Triple Entente and that left Estoniaball to face Russian SFSRball alone. However, Estoniaball didn't give up. It rallied and mobilised everyone it could and with the help of Finlandball volunteers and a couple UKball destroyers, Estoniaball struck the Russiaball offence as far as St. Petersburgball and liberated Latviaball, which had been completely taken by the Reds. Vabadussõda (War of Independence) ended in February 1920. Estoniaball had a hard time in politics. There were too many parties with similar, but still very different ideologies and all the politicians are corrupted. In 1933 Eesti Vabadussõjalaste liit aka Vapsid (Union of Participants in the Estonian War of Independence) demanded that the duties of a prime minister and a president should be separated (until then, those duties were carried out by Riigivanem aka State Elder) and that the presidential elections should be popular, not parliamentary. Estoniaball didn't really prosper until Vaikiv ajastu (Silent Era), which started when Estoniaball declared martial law because of the threat that Vapsid might stage a coup d'état. Thus Estoniaball became an authoritarian regime.
Estoniaball exported grain, dairy, meat, poultry and confectioneries to as far as USAball. Estoniaball also exported fabric, fine crystal, lime-silica bricks, logs, paper, phosphorite-based fertiliser and oil shale-based petroleum.
After the signing of MRP in August 1939, Estoniaball was approached by Soviet Unionball, who offered to guarantee their protection and neutrality in the inevitable war. Estoniaball accepted the offer and fell immediately under Soviet Unionball influence. In June 1940, Juunipööre ("'Revolution' of June") happened, and Estonian SSRball was founded. What followed were mass executions and the deportation to Siberian Labour Camps with everyone being accused of either helping or siding with bourgeoisie Estoniaball. Hundreds flocked on any sort of watercraft to emigrate to Swedenball to escape punishment. All businesses and factories were nationalised and all farmsteads were ordered to join into kolhoosid or sovhoosid (Collectives). In June 1941 Soviet Unionball ordered juuniküüditamine (June Deportation) to get rid of hostiles to the regime. Approximately 10,000 out of the diminutive Estoniaball population of 1,000,000 were all put on animal wagons overnight and sent to various gulags labour camps across Siberiaball without delay, separating thousands of families. The majority of men were massacred at their arrival at labour camps. The women and children had to do hard labour in mining or logging. It is estimated that the number of casualties juuniküüditamine is around 6,000.
In August 1941 Nazi Germanyball occupied Estonian SSRball and reorganised it into an Eastern territory. Estoniaball was allowed to publicly display the Estonian tricolour and sing the Estonian anthem once again. Estoniaball had its own self-administration and battalions. When Nazi Germanyball was retreating from the Soviet Unionball forces, the de jure Estoniaball cabinet that had been in hiding formed a new cabinet, hoping to replicate the same trick done in 1918 when declaring independence. The new cabinet asked recognition from the Western Allies but got no response. Half of the cabinet fled to Swedenball, where the Estonian de facto Government-in-exile was founded. Soviet Unionball returned in September 1944. Thus, Estoniaball vanished from the world map going into exile in Swedenball with recognition only from USAball.
Era of Soviet Rule
With the return of Soviet Unionball, thousands were tortured and punished for having helped Nazi Germanyball in any way. Hundreds joined the resistance movement Metsavennad (Forest Siblings) hiding in the woods. Collectivization was reinstated. In 1949 Soviet Unionball ordered märtsiküüditamine (March Deportation aka Operation Прибой) to once again get rid of more hostiles. Approximately 22 500 were deported by animal and cargo wagons overnight to gulags. With many kulaks deported, who were a source of food for Metsavennad, the resistance movement perished.
As Soviet Unionball lost its totalitarian dictator in 1953, Estoniaball was hoping of gradually achieving sovereignty through political activism. The youth started joining Komsomol (Young Communist League) wanting to promote national communism. Those dreams were soon crushed. In 1955 Eesti Televisioon went on air. Estoniaball enjoyed a period loosened surveillance and more liberties during Hruštšovi Sula (Khrushchev Thaw). Literature, cinematography and other areas of art flourished.
With Brezhnev, Estoniaball saw major stagnation in social evolution, technology and consumer goods. The word defitsiit (deficit) and standing in lines for any sort of consumer goods became a part of everyday life, as Soviet Unionball wasted its time and money on heavy industry. Russification began again, making Russian mandatory and reducing the importance of the local language. Children had more Russian lessons in a school week than Estonian from their first year in school. Estoniaball intellectuals wrote a public letter adressed to Kremlin, which was ignored and suppressed.
During Gorbachev's reforms, Estoniaball protested against the major project to make a huge mining complex in Estoniaball to mine phosphorite (Fosforiidisõda). Research showed that this sort of mining would ruin the ecosystem and the need for labour would mean locating thousands of Russians into Estoniaball, which would make Russians the majority and completely deprioritise and ultimately annihilate Estoniaball. As the protests bore fruit, Estoniaball saw opportunity to take action, as the Soviet reign had crumbled. Anti-Soviet movements popped up and in 1988 Estoniaball enacted Suveräänsusdeklaratsioon (Declaration of Sovereignty). The national anthem Mu isamaa, mu õnn ja rõõm and the tricolour were legalised again. Estoniaball showed its unity and spirit by holding mass gatherings at Lauluväljak and forming the Balti kett (Baltic Way) with Latvian SSRball and Lithuanian SSRball. Estoniaball then held elections, where only Estonians, who were born in Estoniaball before the revolution or descendents of them could have a vote. In 1991 a referendum for all was held, whether Estoniaball declares independence or stays in the proposed new and more liberal Soviet Unionball sphere. 78% voted for independence. August Putschists wanted to take Toompea and Teletorn, but they failed, as the government called for help and thousands gathered in defence. On August 20, 1991, Estoniaball regained independence, as the government-in-exile passed its duties on to the newly-formed government. Thus the old republic was restored.
In 1992 a new constitution and the old currency Kroon were reinstated. In 1994 Russiaball agreed to remove all stationed troops in Estoniaball. In 2001 Estoniaball won the Eurovision contest (although people said that it didn't deserve it). Estoniaball joined the EU and NATO in 2004 after a referendum. In 2008, along with the entire world, Estoniaball suffered a big economic collapse. In 2011 Estonia adopted the Euro. In 2018, Estoniaball celebrated its 100th anniversary.
Estonia has become a leading country in infotechnological field, especially thanks to help from the EUball. Estonia is also considered to be quite libertarian, one of the freest countries in the world, including of very high level of economic freedom. However, still has mandatory military service.
In 2019, Estoniaball can into winning WRC, when on October 27, Ott Tänak finished second in Rally Catalunya. After coming third in 2017 and 2018 championships, it won the championship in 2019, ending the 15-year dominance of two French Sebastiens (Loeb and Ogier). Previously, Markko Märtin had come 3rd in 2004.
The flag of Estonia is a horizontal tricolor composing of the colors blue, black, and white.
|True Blue||0, 114, 206||C100-M45-Y0-K19||#0072CE|
|Black||0, 0, 0||C0-M0-Y0-K100||#000000|
|White||255, 255, 255||N/A||#FFFFFF|
The blue represents loyalty and the beautiful blue skies, the black is symbolic of past oppression, and represents the forest in the winter, and the white represents virtue and the winter snows.
