It is a conflict avoider but at the same time loves conflict, with a thirst for blood and switching sides during war punishing its enemies severely. It loves working in IT and is known for finding unusual solutions to problems. It is the outcome of the union between Wallachia-icon.png Wallachiaball and Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball in 1859 and Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball in 1918. They are the outcome of Dacia-icon.png Daciaball and SPQR-icon.png SPQRball. It is one of the sole SPQR-icon.png SPQRball survivors in Eastern Europe, (R.I.P.

    It tries to become cultural but is always overshadowed by its arrogant older sibling France-icon.png Franceball, who used to be its role model, but now it's just annoying and bragging. If Poland-icon.png Polandball cannot into space, Romaniaball cannot into less corrupt. Its sibling is Moldova-icon.png Moldovaball and it wishes to unite with it one day, but Russia-icon.png Russiaball is against it.

    History

    Daco-Roman Conflicts SPQR-icon.png Dacia-icon.png (168 BC-106)

    Its clay was inhabited by many 2-icon.png prehistorical cultures. They later developed into Dacia-icon.png Daciaballs who were renowned in Ancient Greece-icon.png Ancient Greeceball for their fighting power. Although Dacia-icon.png Daciaballs shared the same language and had similar religious customs, they were not united, being split up in a dozen rival tribes. This changed when Gaul-icon.png Gaulball attacked and a larger and larger coalition of Dacia-icon.png Daciaball tribes formed until King Burebista united them all into a single powerful kingdom in 82 BC.

    During the SPQR-icon.png Roman civil war, King Burebista allied with Pompey Magnus against the victorious Julius Caesar, who planned a campaign against Dacia-icon.png Daciaball. This war never came to pass as both King Burebista and Julius Caesar were assassinated in year 42 BC. After King Burebista's death, Dacia-icon.png Daciaball would fragment into 4 and then 5 different kingdoms based on shifting tribal alliances.

    The Migrators Gepids-icon.png Hun-icon.png Avar-icon.png Principality of Hungary-icon.png (106-1310)

    After 168 years of domination, SPQR-icon.png SPQRball retreated their legions south of Danube river in 274. The File:Goth-icon.png Gothsball moved south to dominate Dacia-icon.png Daciaball afterwards. The SPQR-icon.png SPQRball Emperor Constantine retook Dacia-icon.png Daciaball in 328 earning himself the title Dacius Maximus. After SPQR-icon.png SPQRball withdrew yet again a new tribe of uncertain origins called Gepids-icon.png Gepidsball retook control of Dacia-icon.png Daciaball. The Gepids-icon.png Gepidsball allied with Hun-icon.png Hunball during their conquests and after the disintegration of Hun-icon.png Hunball the Gepids-icon.png Gepidsball established themselves as the primary power in the region, receiving a tribute of 100 pounds of gold each year from SPQR-icon.png SPQRball.

    Beginning in the 9th century, the semi-nomadic Principality of Hungary-icon.png Magyarsball gradually conquered Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball defeating the Latin speaking Vlachs (As Byzantine-icon.png Byzantineball referred to them as) Duchy of Gelouball, Duchy of Gladball and Duchy of Menumorutball. The First Bulgarian Empire-icon.png First Bulgarian Empireball collapsed soon afterward due to attacks from Byzantine-icon.png Byzantineball. During this time, the Vlachs gained greater autonomy and freedom.

    In the mid 13th century, Mongol Empire-icon.png Mongol Empireball invaded Eastern Europe. After the Mongol Empire-icon.png Mongol Empireball withdrew, 3 Latin speaking states formed: Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball, Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball and Wallachia-icon.png Wallachiaball as semi-independent vassals of Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png Kingdom of Hungaryball.

    In 1277, the Wallachia-icon.png Wallachian Vlach Litovoi revolted against Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png Kingdom of Hungaryball by refusing to pay tribute. The rebellion ended in 1278 when Litovoi was killed in battle and its sibling Bărbat was taken prisoner by Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png Kingdom of Hungaryball. After Bărbat paid its ransom and recognized Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png Kingdom of Hungaryball's rule it took its sibling's throne.

    Medieval Romanian States Wallachia-icon.png Moldavia-icon.png Transylvania-icon.png (1330-1848)

    In 1330, the Wallachia-icon.png Wallachian Vlach Basarab I revolted and defeated a much larger force of the Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png Kingdom of Hungaryball. The most notable victory was the Battle of Posada where 10.000 Wallachian troops defeated 30.000 Hungarian troops. The Wallachians suffered light casualties while the Hungarians suffered very heavy casualties. Establishing Wallachia-icon.png Wallachiaball as a fully independent state.

    In 1345, the Moldavia-icon.png Moldavian Vlach Bogdan I revolted against Moldavia-icon.png Moldavian Vlach Dragos and its Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png Kingdom of Hungaryball overlord. Eventually defeating both of them and establishing Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball as a fully independent state. The Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png Kingdom of Hungaryball initially didn't recognize Moldaviaball's independence and attacked it again to try and retake the clay, but after a few failed attempts it eventually recognized Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball's independence.

    A sentence that doesn't reflect good, that nobody hears about and nobody has anything to learn from, is an useless sentence.
     
    — Vlad the Impaler

    During the long reign of Vlad the Impaler's contemporary and cousin, Stephen the Great of Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball in 1457. The state of Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball reached the height of its power, influence and independence. One of the greatest military commanders of its time, it won 48 out of 50 battles against Ottoman-icon.png kebab while outnumbered in most of them. And defeated larger armies of Kingdom of Poland-icon.png Kingdom of Polandball and Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png Kingdom of Hungaryball.

    Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball doesn't belong to me, it doesn't belong to you, it doesn't belong to us, it belongs to our children's childrens forevermore.

    In 1683, the Ottoman-icon.png kebab was removed at the Battle of Vienna and Austrian Empire-icon.png Austrian Empireball took Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball. Although some of its people were Magyars or Germans most were Romanian peasants. Their harsh treatment led to a rebellion headed by 3 sherfs called: Horea, Cloșa, and Crișan. The rebellion failed but in 1785 Austrian Empire-icon.png Austrian Empireball abolished serfdom in Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball. In 1699, Austrian Empire-icon.png Austrian Empireball took Bukovina-icon.png Bukovinaball from Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball who was under Ottoman-icon.png kebab rule.

    In 1765, Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball was declared a Grand Principality further consolidating its special separate status within Austrian Empire-icon.png Austrian Empireball. The Russian-Empire-icon.png Russo-Turkish Ottoman-icon.png war started in 1806, after 6 years of war Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball won and annexed half of Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball that will later be known as Bessarabia-icon.png Bessarabiaball.

    The early 19th century saw a brief period of Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball control over Wallachia-icon.png Wallachiaball and Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball. And a series of Romanian uprising against Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball, Austrian Empireball and Ottoman-icon.png kebab rule as national sentiments continued to grow.

    In 1848, Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball wanted freedom and equality from Austrian Empire-icon.png Austrian Empireball and started a revolt. The Transylvanian Romanians initially supported Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball as they wanted freedom and equality too until they realised that Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball wants freedom and equality only for Hungarians and also wanted to unite Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball with Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball. Then Transylvanian Romanians went to Austrian Empire-icon.png Austrian Empireball for support. They were initially ignored but when Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball declared independence Austrian Empire-icon.png Austrian Empireball opened to the Romanian demands in exchange for fighting Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball. The Romanian serf Avram Iancu took command of the Romanian forces.

    After Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball's defeat, Austrian Empire-icon.png the Austrian Empireball rejected the demand of creating a province for Romanians (Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball with Banat-icon.png Banatball and Bukovina-icon.png Bukovinaball) out of fear of replacing Hungarian nationalism with Romanian nationalism. Yet the Austrian Empire-icon.png Austrian Empireball created Romanian administrative offices in Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball and granted the Romanians numerous liberties and rights.

    Union, Reforms, Freedom, Kingdom United Principalities-icon.png Kingdom of Romania-icon.png (1848-1914)

    Due to the strong cultural connection and economic proximity, Wallachia-icon.png Wallachiaball and Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball made a customs union in 1848. Ad-hoc meetings were organized in 1857 where the populations of Wallachia-icon.png Wallachiaball and Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball expressed their desire for union.

    Unionists from Wallachia-icon.png Wallachiaball and Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball brought their case to a congress of the Great Powers in 1858. The Great Powers decided to allow a union and created a constitution known as "The Convention from Paris". They will be known as United Principalities-icon.png United Principalities of Moldavia and Wallachiaball but will have separate institutions and thrones will remain separate and each will elect their own prince. The same convention stated that the army will keep its old flags, with the addition of a blue ribbon on each of them.

    Birth of modern day Romania.png

    It was a union for the most part only in name. Apart from the common army, the two states behaved like completely different states. However, the Moldavians elected Colonel Alexander Ioan Cuza as the prince of Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball on 5 January 1859 and then the Wallachians elected Colonel Alexander Ioan Cuza as prince of Wallachia-icon.png Wallachiaball on 24 January 1859. The "The Convention from Paris" stated the thrones of Moldavia and Wallachia had to be separate, but it didn't state that the same man can't be elected the prince of both separate thrones, thus the Romanians fulfilled the rules of the "The Convention from Paris" and United Principalities-icon.png United Principalities of Moldavia and Wallachiaball was officaly established/born.

    Romanians, your chosen gives you a single Romania!
     
    — Alexandru Ioan Cuza

    (Nowadays, 24 January is a national holiday in Romania-icon.png Romaniaball called The Little Union).

    On 9 May 1877, United Principalities-icon.png Romania became fully independent from Ottoman-icon.png kebab, this time for good. However Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball took some of United Principalities-icon.png Romania's clay in spite of the treaty, proving once again that Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball is the biggest asshole in history and has no honor. This was seen as a violation of the treaty highly criticized by France-icon.png Franceball and Kingdom of Prussia-icon.png Kingdom of Prussiaball, but none would risk a war with Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball.

    On 14 March 1881, United Principalities-icon.png Romania became Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball under King Carol I. The late 19th century represented a period of freedom and rebirth for Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball, a lot of cultural and economic progress was made. A lot of intellectuals emerged: writers, poets, scientists and artists such as Mihai Eminescu, Constantin Brancusi, Ion Creanga, Nicolae Iorga and George Enescu.

    When the First Balkan War started in 1912, Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball demanded the city of Silistraball from Bulgaria-icon.png Kingdom of Bulgariaball in exchange for neutrality, Bulgaria-icon.png Kingdom of Bulgariaball accepted. However, in the war, the Bulgaria-icon.png Kingdom of Bulgariaball refused to give the city. As such when the Second Balkan War started in 1913, Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball joined Kingdom of Serbia-icon.png Kingdom of Serbiaball and Kingdom of Greece-icon.png Kingdom of Greeceball and united together against Bulgaria-icon.png Kingdom of Bulgariaball and took all of Dobruja-icon.png Southern Dobrujaball, which made Bulgaria-icon.png Kingdom of Bulgariaball more weak.

    — King Carol I

    World War I Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Bessarabia-icon.png Banat-icon.png Bukovina-icon.png Transylvania-icon.png (1914-1918)

    When World War I started Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball was neutral. The Entente persuaded it to join them in 1916 by promising Banat-icon.png Banatball, Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball and Bukovina-icon.png Bukovinaball from Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball. All regions populated mostly by Romanians as Bukovina-icon.png Bukovinaball used part of Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball while Banat-icon.png Banatball and Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball were the Duchy of Gelouball, Duchy of Gladball and Duchy of Menumorutball before the Hungarian conquest.

    Though a member of German Empire-icon.png German Empireball's imperial family, King Ferdinand was in charge of Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball's entry on the side of the Entente, respecting its oath before the Romanian Parliament in 1914: "I will reign as a true Romanian", earning the nickname "the Loyal". As a consequence of this betrayal, Kaiser Wilhelm II had Ferdinand's name erased from the Hohenzollern House register.

    The Romanians from Banat-icon.png Banatball, Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball, and Bukovina-icon.png Bukovinaball entered the war from the beginning, with hundreds of thousands being mobilized throughout the war. Although most were loyal to Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball, reactionary sentiments emerged after Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball joined the war on the Entente's side. Many of the previously loyal soldiers decided that it's better to risk their lives through desertion rather than to fight against their own country. Many novels were written on this subject, most famous being "The Forest of the Hanged", hanging was the punishment for desertion in Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball.

    Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball's plan was to defend in the south against Bulgaria-icon.png Kingdom of Bulgariaball and attack in the north against Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball. Initially, the plan worked until support from the German Empire-icon.png German Empireball arrived and Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball started being pushed back to the point where the only region left standing was Moldavia-icon.png Moldovaball.

    When the communist revolution started in 1917, Bessarabia-icon.png Bessarabiaball declared independence from the Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball as Democratic Republic of Moldavia-icon.png Democratic Republic of Moldaviaball and 3 months later, united with Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball. But the revolution also threw Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball out of the war and now Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball stood alone on the eastern front. As such the Armistice of Focsani was signed and later the Treaty of Bucharest was negotiated.

    After Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball, German Empire-icon.png German Empireball and Bulgaria-icon.png Kingdom of Bulgariaball left its clay, Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball secretly started to rearm. After Kingdom of Greece-icon.png Kingdom of Greeceball's offensive on Thessalonikiball knocked Bulgaria-icon.png Kingdom of Bulgariaball out of the war, Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball redeclared war to the Central Powers on 10 November, a day before it ended in Western Europe on 11 November with the Entente being victorious.

    This event came to be known as "The Great Union" where the Romanian provinces of Bessarabia-icon.png Bessarabiaball, Bukovina-icon.png Bukovinaball, Banat-icon.png Banatball and Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball and united with Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball in the same year, with the last being Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball on 1st December 1918. All provinces with a Romanian majority were now under a Romanian state, as a result, Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball's clay was more than twice the clay it had before.

    Long live Greater Romania! Strong and united!

    (Nowadays, 1 December is the national day of Romania-icon.png Romaniaball, representing The Great Union).

    Interwar Period Kingdom of Romania-icon.png (1918-1939)

    While Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball gained a lot of clay, Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png First Hungarian Republicball lost a lot of clay and was dissatisfied with this. Until the treaty and the official loss of the clay were signed, Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png First Hungarian Republicball offered cultural and administrative autonomy to the minorities, but they refused, stating that they desire to be separated from it.

    At this time the actual borders with Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball were uncertain and Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball passed up to the Tisa river but France-icon.png Franceball was against it. After some discussion, Franceball agreed and Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png First Hungarian Republicball is asked to accept the new borders of Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball. However, Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png First Hungarian Republicball doesn't accept and the government resigns as an act of protest.

    After Trianon, Czech-icon.png Czechoslovakiaball, with Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball and Panslavic-icon.png Kingdom of Yugoslaviaball, formed the Little Entente with support from France-icon.png Franceball to ensure that Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png Kingdom of Hungaryball will not attempt to recover lost clay again. Kingdom of Romania-icon.png also made a separate alliance with Poland-icon.png Second Polish Republicball who didn't want to become part of the Little Entente because it and Czech-icon.png Czechoslovakiaball hated each other, you know, petty highschool feuds.

    Interwar was the best period of Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball's life, it sees it as a golden age. All Romanian-speaking people were united under one country. It had the most clay that it ever had, being referred to as "Greater Romania". It had no more desire for war, was content and satisfied with himself and was looking for cooperation with other nations as well as cultural and industrial development.

    It had an active implication in the League of Nations, its capital Bucarest-icon.png Bucharestball became known as Paris-icon.png "Little Paris" and many monuments were built, its educational system improved, it became a regional power in its own right. Its economy flourished becoming one of the greatest oil exporters.

    After King Ferdinand's death in 1927, a time of political instability with regencies began until its son, King Carol II, took the throne in 1930. In spite of King Carol II being a notorious hedonist, it was a good economist. It became the world's 4th oil and grain exporter in 1938. The Little Entente also broke in 1938 when Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball and Panslavic-icon.png Kingdom of Yugoslaviaball refused to support Czech-icon.png Czechoslovakiaball after the Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball invasion.

    World War II Nazi-icon.png Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Soviet-icon.png (1939-1945)

    When Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball invaded Poland-icon.png Second Polish Republicball, Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball asked Poland-icon.png Second Polish Republicball if they wanted help but Poland-icon.png Second Polish Republicball refused, hoping that France-icon.png Franceball and UK-icon.png UKball would send troops through Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball's ports. Spoiler alert: they didn't. After Poland-icon.png Second Polish Republicball was defeated, its politicans and some army escaped through Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball and lived in exile in Londonball.

    France-icon.png Franceball and UK-icon.png UKball give a guarantee to Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Romaniaball that it won't lose clay in 1938. But France-icon.png Franceball was defeated by Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball and UK-icon.png UKball forgot its promise. After a Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball ultimatum in 1940, Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball agreed to give up Bessarabia-icon.png Bessarabiaball and Bukovina-icon.png Northern Bukovinaball in exchange for not being invaded.

    As part of the Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball, Bessarabia-icon.png Bessarabiaball became Moldavian SSRball and later, after communism fell in 1989, became Moldova-icon.png Moldovaball. (Bukovina-icon.png Northern Bukovinaball was apportioned to Ukraine-icon.png Ukrainian SSRball.


    Shortly after, Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png Kingdom of Hungaryball demanded Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball from Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball with support from Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball. Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball refused, not wanting to risk to waste troops against Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball, Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball made a compromise where it would only give Transylvania-icon.png Northern Transylvaniaball to Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png Kingdom of Hungaryball. The Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball was surprised and felt particularly betrayed by Italian-Empire-icon.png Fascist Italyball who supported Transylvania-icon.png Northern Transylvaniaball's annexation.

    After that, Bulgaria-icon.png Bulgariaball demanded Dobruja-icon.png Southern Dobrujaball with support from Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball from Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball. Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball and it was ceded in the Treaty of Craiova followed by a population exchange.

    The loss of all that clay caused the popularity of the King and government to plummet, which made way for a fascist coup under Ion Antonescu. Despite the unfavorable outcome of recent territorial disputes, Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Fascist Romania leaned strongly toward the Axis, hoping to regain Bessarabia-icon.png Bessarabiaball and Bukovina-icon.png Northern Bukovinaball and revise the treaty with Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png Kingdom of Hungaryball.

    History never forgets the guilty, and we were all guilty: some because we made mistakes, some because we stood and watched, all of us because we endured.
     
    — Ion Antonescu

    Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball launched Operation Barbarossa against the Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball on 22 June 1941. Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Fascist Romania joined the offensive crossing the river Prut. After recovering Bessarabia-icon.png Bessarabiaball and Bukovina-icon.png Northern Bukovinaball were recovered Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Fascist Romania kept fighting side by side with Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball.

    Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Fascist Romania requested to revise the treaty with Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png Kingdom of Hungaryball. Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball refused because of Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png Kingdom of Hungaryball. Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball was also an ally, but gave Odessaball to Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Fascist Romania as compensation for the loss of Transylvania-icon.png Northern Transylvaniaball.

    Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Fascist Romania's economy was in tatters by 1944 because of the expenses of the war, UK-icon.png UKball's air raids, and because most of the products sent to Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball were provided without monetary compensation. The uncompensated exports caused widespread discontent in Fascist Romania, even among groups who had once enthusiastically supported Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball.

    On 23 August 1944, King Michael of Romania led a coup with support from opposition politicians and most of the army, successfully deposing Ion Antonescu. Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball attempted to turn the situation around by military force but were repelled by the Bucarest-icon.png Bucharestball Defense Army which received air support from USA-icon.png USAball. Surprisingly, the Soviet-icon.png Sovietball who already occupied parts of Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball immediately recognized the King Michael and the restoration of the Romanian monarchy.

    I do not see Romania as a legacy from my parents, but as a country lended from our children.
     
    — King Michael

    In a radio broadcast to the Romanian nation and the army, King Michael issued a cease-fire, proclaimed Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball's loyalty to the Allies and announced the armistice offered by UK-icon.png UKball, USA-icon.png USAball and Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball. Then, they declared war on Nazi Germanyball. King Michael's coup accelerated Soviet-icon.png's advance into Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball, but did not avert a rapid occupation and Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball captured about 130,000 Romanian soldiers, who were transported to Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball clay where many died in prison camps.

    The armistice was signed on 12 September 1944, on terms dictated by Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball. Under the terms of the armistice, Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball announced its unconditional surrender to Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball and was placed under the occupation of the Allies with the Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball.

    As Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball declared war on Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball, border clashes between Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball and Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball troops erupted almost immediately.

    In early September, Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball and Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball entered Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball, their main objective was Clujball, a city regarded as the historical capital with was captured on 8 October. Also around this time, Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball carried out its last independent offensive action of the war, attacking Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball in the west. Despite initial success, a number of Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball cadet battalions managed to stop Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball's army.

    Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball ended the warfighting against Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball alongside Soviet-icon.png Sovietball in Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball, Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball, Panslavic-icon.png Yugoslaviaball, Austria-icon.png Austriaball and Czech-icon.png Czechoslovakiaball, from August 1944 until the end of the war in May 1945. The First and Fourth armies took part in the Prague Offensive.

    Communism and Revolution (1945 - 1989) RS Romania-icon.png Communism-icon.png Czech-icon.png North Korea-icon.png

    Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball's occupation following World War II facilitated the rise of communism. In 1947, they initiated a coup where King Michael was forced to abdicate and a communist republic was established becoming the last countryball from the Eastern Bloc to become communist. Between 1948 and 1950, it hunted down and arrested all the democrats and legionaries from its clay.

    SR ROMANIA WITH HAT.png

    After Nicolae Ceausescu became the leader of RS Romania-icon.png SR Romaniaball in 1965, RS Romania-icon.png SR Romaniaball began to distance itself from the Soviet-icon.png Soviet Union ball. RS Romania-icon.png SR Romaniaball refused to invade Czech-icon.png Czechoslovakiaball in 1968 with the rest of Warsaw Pactball and even spoke against it. This was met this was meet with cheers by the population and they considered it a national hero at the time. Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball threatened to invade RS Romania-icon.png SR Romaniaball but USA-icon.png USAball had its support.

    The invasion of Czechoslovakiaball is a great error that will make nothing more than to disturb the peace in Europe and to stop the spread of socialism in the world.
     
    — Nicolae Ceausescu

    Much to the Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball's dislike, RS Romania-icon.png SR Romaniaball became good friends with North Korea-icon.png North Koreaball and started trading with capitalist Western Europe. Nicolae Ceausescu turned RS Romania-icon.png SR Romaniaball into an industrial and trading power with the GDP growth of 10% every year, that means the country was 10% richer each year, it earned praise both from the west and from the population alike. But unfortunately, this golden age was going to last until 1977 when an earthquake destroyed a great part of Bucarest-icon.png Bucharestball.

    After borrowing 11 billion dollars from UN-icon.png UNball to rebuild Bucarest-icon.png Bucharestball, RS Romania-icon.png SR Romaniaball wanted to build the House of the People (Now the second-largest administrative building in the world). All the money RS Romania-icon.png SR Romaniaball had was already invested, and because Ceausescu wanted to pay that money back to UN-icon.png, it decided to take the money it needed from any possible source. Obsessed with repaying the national debt, Nicolae Ceausescu ordered a ban on importation of any consumer products and commanded exportation of all goods produced in RS Romania-icon.png SR Romaniaball except minimum food supplies. Severe restrictions on civil rights were imposed.

    RS Romania-icon.png SR Romaniaball was the only communist country not to break its diplomatic relations with Israel-icon.png Israelcube. RS Romania-icon.png SR Romaniaball criticized Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball's invasion of Afghanistan-icon.png Afghanistanball in 1982. RS Romania-icon.png SR Romaniaball refused to follow Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball's boycott of the 1984 Olympic Games (being the only Warsaw Pact nation to do so) as well at their reform trends in 1987. After the fall of the Berlin Wall and Warsaw Pactball in 1989, RS Romania-icon.png SR Romaniaball was the only communist country left in Eastern Europe beside Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball.

    CR rebel.png

    On 16 December in Timișoaraball, priest Lasló Trókes said bad things about the regime and needed to be exiled, but the people revolted in support of the priest. After a while, the revolt escalated and people started demanding freedom and death to communism.

    Hearing the news, Ceausescu returned from Iran-icon.png Iranball on 20 December to deal with the revolt in Timișoaraball and labels them as enemies of socialism. On 21 December Ceausescu gathered a lot of people in Bucarest-icon.png Bucharestball to boost the population's support for socialism, but the reaction was the opposite, people started shouting "We are the people, down with the dictator!", "Death to the murderer!", etc. Ceausescu sent the army to deal with the revolutionaries and fighting on the streets began.

    The army sided with the democrats on 22 December 1989. Ceausescu and its spouse tried to escape but were caught and executed live. After that, RS Romania-icon.png SR Romaniaball became a democratic and capitalist nation with free elections. RS Romania-icon.png SR Romaniaball had the bloodiest revolution in 1989 with 1104 deaths and many wounded.

    Better loafer than traitor! Better hooligan than dictator! Better ruffian than activist! Better dead than communist!

    Modern Romania Romania-icon.png NATO-icon.png EU-icon.png Moldova-icon.png (1989-Present)

    Although Nicoale Ceausescu and communism were gone, the corrupt system it built still existed. The revolutionaries at Timișoaraball made a proclamation that wasn't respected. The most important point of the proclamation was point 8 which stated that no former communists could hold public functions anymore.

    This didn't happen. The new politicians of Romaniaball were previously politicians in RS Romania-icon.png SR Romaniaball, including the new president Ion Iliescu, corruption and abuse of power continued. The former Romanian Communist Party (PRC) had vanished from the world and new parties formed: the Social-Democrat Party (PSD) and Democrat-Liberal Party (PDL). The PSD party still claims that it is not the successor of the Romanian Communist Party.

    After two minor revolts, Romaniaball had a better president in 1996 and started building relations with USA-icon.png USAball. After 9/11 Romaniaball supported USA-icon.png USAball in its wars. In 2004 Romaniaball entered NATO-icon.png NATOball and in 2007 entered with Bulgaria-icon.png Bulgariaball in EU-icon.png EUball.

    The current prime-minister is Viorica Dăncilă, one of the most illiterate politicians and a dumb blonde. It didn't know the capital of Montenegro-icon.png Montenegroball, thought Iran-icon.png Iranball is in Europe, confused Slovenia-icon.png Sloveniaball with Slovakia-icon.png Slovakiaball, and can barely speak English-icon.png English. The actual but unofficial prime minster is the president of the Social-Democrat Party (PSD), Liviu Dragnea. Right now, Romaniaball is at a crossroad and in a very difficult spot.

    A modern Romania is an educated Romania, we are what we read, books guide and form us.
