    Romaniaball, also known as Romania-icon.png Ceaușescu 2.0 Roomania is the son of Dracula homophobe a medium-sized corrupt countryball from Eastern Europe and The Balkans. He is a conflict avoider but at the same time loves conflict, with a thirst for blood and switching sides during war punishing his enemies severely. He loves working in IT and is known for finding unusual solutions to problems. He is the outcome of the union between Wallachia-icon.png Wallachiaball and Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball in 1859 and later Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball in 1918. They are the outcome of Dacia-icon.png Daciaball and SPQR-icon.png SPQRball. He is one of the sole SPQR-icon.png SPQRball survivors in Eastern Europe, (rip Dalmatian language) the other being Aromanian-icon.png Aromaniaball.

    He is a member of NATO-icon.png NATOball and EU-icon.png EUball, and is also able to join the Danube Commission-icon.png Danube Commissionball from being connected to the Danube river and the UN-icon.png UNball like almost every other countryball in the world.

    He tries to become cultural but is always overshadowed by his arrogant older sister France-icon.png Franceball, who used to be his role model, but now she's just annoying and bragging. If Poland-icon.png Polandball cannot into space, Romaniaball cannot into less corrupt. His brother is Moldova-icon.png Moldovaball and he wishes to unite with him one day but Russia-icon.png Russiaball is against it. He's obsessed with removing Gypsy-icon.png Gypsyball from his clay and is often seen arguing with Gypsy-icon.png Gypsyballs. Like Serbia-icon.png Serbiaball and Slovakia-icon.png Slovakiaball, Romaniaball hates Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball, often fighting or arguing with him, but it's not always the case, in spite of their differences they can into friends. He is one of the most religious countryballs, Vatican-icon.png Vaticanball has a great opinion of him, which is unusual considering he's not of Catholic-icon.png Catholic.

    His national day is on the 1st of December (The Great Union) but his birthday is on 24 January 1859 (The Little Union) when Wallachia-icon.png Wallachiaball and Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball united. He has a population of 19.64 million people.


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

    His 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.

    Dacia-icon.png Daciaball would once again become a threat to SPQR-icon.png SPQRball when reunited under King Decebalus in 87 AD. During the SPQR-icon.png SPQRball reign of Emperor Domician, Dacia-icon.png Daciaball successfully invaded the province of Moesia (where Bulgaria-icon.png Bulgariaball lives nowadays). SPQR-icon.png SPQRball beat back Dacia-icon.png Daciaball over the Danube river, only to suffer a disastrous defeat while pursuing them and agreed to a humiliating treaty where SPQR-icon.png SPQRball paid Dacia-icon.png Daciaball 8 million sesterces every year. In return, Dacia-icon.png Daciaball accepted the status of being a SPQR-icon.png SPQRball client kingdom.

    After two decades of respite, SPQR-icon.png SPQRball under Emperor Tranjan would wage two wars against Dacia-icon.png Daciaball. During these wars, the Dacians often used shock troops armed with two-handed swords called Falx that were so effective at piercing SPQR-icon.png SPQRball helmets that they were modified with a pair of crossbars over the dome of the helmet to mitigate the damage from this weapon. However, the full might of SPQR-icon.png SPQRball combined with a competent emperor was too much. King Decebalus took his own life while being pursued rather than being captured and paraded through the streets of Romeball.

    Tens of thousands of Dacia-icon.png Daciaballs were enslaved and taken into other parts of the empire while the new SPQR-icon.png SPQRball province of Dacia-icon.png Daciaball was heavily colonized especially with SPQR-icon.png SPQRball military veterans as has been done with Spainball generations ago. Although the Dacia-icon.png Daciaball heartland has been taken, there were free Dacia-icon.png Daciaballs on the outskirts of the province that raided and attempted to retake Dacia-icon.png Daciaball for decades. This vulnerable province was the focus of intense Latinization, of the many inscriptions of names found dating to Roman Dacia, 74% are Latin names.

    We have conquered even these Dacians, the most warlike of all people that ever existed.
    — Emperor Trajan

    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 Goths-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.

    The Gepids-icon.png Gepidsball came to an end after an invasion from Avar-icon.png Avarballs and SPQR-icon.png SPQRball. Initially allied with SPQR-icon.png SPQRball, the Avar-icon.png Avarballs then terrorized SPQR-icon.png SPQRball. Avarballs were allied with Slavs-icon.png Slavsball who gradually became the dominant power in the region. In 681 the First Bulgarian Empire-icon.png First Bulgarian Empireball came to dominate the entire region. The First Bulgarian Empire-icon.png First Bulgarian Empireball was a long time enemy and occasionally ally of the Byzantine-icon.png Eastern Roman Empireball.

    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 his brother Bărbat was taken prisoner by Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png Kingdom of Hungaryball. After Bărbat paid his ransom and recognized Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png Kingdom of Hungaryball's rule he took his brother's throne.

    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 his 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.

    Friend and good neighbour? yes, from all my heart, but your slave? no!
    — Basarab I

    After earning their independence, Wallachia-icon.png Wallachiaball and Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball allied with Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png Kingdom of Hungaryball against a much greater foe, Ottoman-icon.png kebab. The Wallachia-icon.png Wallachian ruler Mircea Basarab the Elder removed Ottoman-icon.png kebab and took Dobruja-icon.png Dobrujaball in 1389. Sultan Beyazid I crossed the Danube in 1394 to retake Dobruja-icon.png Dobrujaball with over 40,000 men, while Wallachia-icon.png Wallachiaball only had about 10,000 men. The two armies clashed at the Battle of Rovine where Mircea the Elder outsmarted and removed Ottoman-icon.png kebab again. In 1417, after Mircea the Elder died, Wallachia-icon.png Wallachiaball became a vassal to Ottoman-icon.png kebab, paying a large yearly tribute of gold and children in exchange for retaining independent rule. During these turbulent times in Wallachia-icon.png Wallachiaball, they fought amongst themselves as often as they rebelled against Ottoman-icon.png kebab, which was often.

    Three things I hated the most in my life: the scared soldier, the arrogant fool and the traitor.
    — Mircea the Elder

    In 1456, Vlad III Basarab Tepes became ruler of Wallachia-icon.png Wallachiaball, most notably known as Vlad the Impaler or Vlad Dracula. He became renowned through Europe, not only for the devastating defeats he dealt with Ottoman-icon.png kebab but also for his legendary cruelty, which hundreds of years later would inspire the fictional character Dracula. In spite of his cruel and sadistic tendencies, he is a just ruler loved by honest folk. It was said that during his reign you could leave your gold purse unattended in the market without fear that someone will try to steal it. His most notable victory was the Night Attack at Targoviste where 35.000 Wallachian troops defeated 100.000 kebab troops. The Wallachians suffered 5.000 casualties while the kebabs 15.000. His revolt against Ottoman-icon.png kebab eventually failed and Wallachia-icon.png Wallachiaball was forced to pay tribute again.

    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 his time, he 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.

    He was highly religious, didn't like wars and wished for peace with other countries, but did what he had to do in order do to protect Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball. For every victory against Ottoman-icon.png kebab he built a new church, because of him the region of Moldavia-icon.png Moldovaball is full of churches to this day. He once asked all European nations to join him in a new crusade against Ottoman-icon.png kebab, but nobody replied because they were too busy fighting each other. Truly, a remarkable kebab remover. However, after his death in 1504 the states of Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball, as well as Wallachia-icon.png Wallachiaball, Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball and Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png the ​Kingdom of Hungaryball, fell under increased Ottoman-icon.png kebab influence and control. The relationship between Ottoman-icon.png kebab and these client states was extremely complex and frequently changed. Often, near autonomy was granted, in exchange for tribute payments of gold and men to fill the ranks of the Ottoman-icon.png kebab army.

    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.

    During the reign of Michael the Brave, a large unified fully independent native state was established on both sides of the Carpathian mountains for the first time since King Decebalus has ruled Dacia-icon.png Daciaball. Michael the Brave became ruler of Wallachia-icon.png Wallachiaball in 1593, he removed Ottoman-icon.png kebab in 1595. His most famous victory is the Battle of Calugareni where 10.000 Wallachian troops with 5.000 mercenaries defeated 100.000 kebab troops. The Wallachians suffered 1.000 casualties while the kebabs 15.000. In 1599 he became the ruler of Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball and in 1600 ruler of Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball, uniting all romanian provinces under a single ruler.

    This state was short-lived, as Michael the Brave was in 1601 and the Ottoman-icon.png kebab gained control again a few years later. The Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png Kingdom of Hungaryball regain its lost territory and Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball once again became a Hungarian vassal state. While the union was short-lived, it became a symbol of hope and the bedrock of the national conscience of Romanians. His seal from 1600 depicted the Black Eagle of Wallachia-icon.png Wallachiaball, the Aurochs Head of Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball, the Seven Hills of Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball and Two Rampant Lions affronts supporting the trunk of a tree, as a symbol of a reunited Dacia-icon.png Daciaball.

    Romanians! we have one life, and one honor, wake up now, as we've slept enough!
    — Michael the Brave

    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.

    You cannot convince tyrants with philosophical and humanitarian arguments, but with Horea's spear!

    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 24th of January is a national holiday in Romania-icon.png Romaniaball called The Little Union).

    Alexander Ioan Cuza carried out reforms including abolishing serfdom and started to unite the institutions one by one in spite of the treaty. With help from unionists, he unified the government and parliament, effectively merging Wallachia-icon.png Wallachiaball and Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball in one country and the country's name was changed to United Principalities-icon.png United Principalities of Romaniaball in 1862. It was a delicate problem but in 1863 Ottoman-icon.png kebab eventually recognised this double election and union but only as long as Alexander Ioan Cuza was the prince. However, Alexander Ioan Cuza was unpopular with conservatives and was overthrown in 1866. This time a prince from a foreign dynasty, prince Carol, replaced him.

    With Alexander Ioan Cuza no longer prince, Ottoman-icon.png kebab demanded that Wallachia-icon.png Wallachiaball and Moldavia-icon.png Moldovaball separate, threatening to attack United Principalities-icon.png United Principalities of Romaniaball otherwise. But due to Alexander Ioan Cuza's reforms and Carol's support from France-icon.png Franceball (protect little brother reasons, thank you) and Kingdom of Prussia-icon.png Kingdom of Prussiaball (Carol was German reasons), Ottoman-icon.png kebab couldn't remove United Principalities-icon.png United Principalities of Romaniaball. In the same year, the union was consolidated by adopting a new constitution that changed the country's name to simply United Principalities-icon.png Romania.

    In the Austro-Hungarian Compromise of 1867, Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball was born and now Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball had control over Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball as they tried in 1848. This was devastating for Trasnylvanian Romanians who started being oppressed, had no rights again and went through magyarization, an artificial attempt of cultural conversion.

    Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball declared war to Ottoman-icon.png kebab in 1877. United Principalities-icon.png Romania asked to join so that he becomes independent, but Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball didn't want to allow United Principalities-icon.png Romania to be part of the winners are the negociating table as Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball wanted to take parts of United Principalities-icon.png Romania too, so he refused. But the Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball couldn't remove Ottoman-icon.png kebab at Plevenball and asked United Principalities-icon.png Romania for help. United Principalities-icon.png Romania accepted with condition that Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball respects his integrity of clay and counts him as part of the winners. Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball accepted and United Principalities-icon.png Romania. took command of the Russo-Romanian troops then removed Ottoman-icon.png kebab at Plevenball after a long siege.

    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.

    I forgive those who wrote and spoke badly against me, seeking to blame me or throw doubts towards my good intentions, I send them a salute, full of love!

    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 him 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 his 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 his 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.

    In the aftermath of World War I the regions of Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball were allowed to choose their own fate based on USA-icon.png USAball's president Wilson's principle of self-determination principle. Being mostly Romanian Bukovina-icon.png Bukovinaball, Banat-icon.png Banatball and Transylvania-icon.png Transylvaniaball voted for union with Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball. Although Banat-icon.png Banatball voted for union with Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball, only 2/3 of was given to Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball while 1/3 is given to Kingdom of Serbia-icon.png Kingdom of Serbiaball because Kingdom of Serbia-icon.png Kingdom of Serbiaball claimed 250,000 Serbians live there and it's close to his capital Belgradeball. There was a small diplomatic conflict over it, but after a while, Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball was still happy as he already gained a lot of clay.

    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 he had before.

    The Great Union of Romania.png
    Long live Greater Romania! Strong and united!
    — King Ferdinand

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

    War With Hungary and Interwar Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png 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 him.

    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.

    The next day communists take power turning into Hungarian Soviet Republic-icon.png Hungarian Soviet Republicball and attack Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball starting the Hungarian-Romanian War. Initially, the attack was successful but the next day Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball counter-attacks and stops again at the Tisza river. Hungarian Soviet Republic-icon.png Hungarian Soviet Republicball attacks Czechia-icon.png Czechoslovakiaball instead, they are winning and France-icon.png Franceball promises that if Hungarian Soviet Republic-icon.png Hungarian Soviet Republicball leaves Czechia-icon.png Czechoslovakiaball they will give them clay in Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball. Hungarian Soviet Republic-icon.png Hungarian Soviet Republicball accepts and retreats from Czechia-icon.png Czechoslovakiaball but Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball refuses.

    The Hungarian Soviet Republic-icon.png Hungarian Soviet Republicball attacks Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball and loses badly. This time Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball didn't stop at the Tisza river, it occupied Budapest, removed the communist party and looted Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png Second Hungarian Republicball. Under pressure from France-icon.png Franceball, Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball gave Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png Second Hungarian Republicball clay from Tisza river to the current borders at Trianon in 1920 and left them alone.

    After Trianon, Czechia-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 he and Czechia-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, he sees it as a golden age. All Romanian-speaking people were united under one country. He had the most clay that he ever had, being referred to as "Greater Romania". He 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.

    He had an active implication in the League of Nations, his capital Bucarest-icon.png Bucharestball became known as Paris-icon.png "Little Paris" and many monuments were built, his educational system improved, he became a regional power in its own right. His 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 his son, King Carol II, took the throne in 1930. In spite of King Carol II being a notorious hedonist, he was a good economist. He 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 Czechia-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, his 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 he 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 his 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 he 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 his 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 Czechia-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.

    After the war, under the 1947 Treaty of Paris, the Allies did not acknowledge Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball as a co-belligerent nation but used the term "ally of Hitlerite Germany". Like Finland-icon.png Finlandball, Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball had to pay $300 million to Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball as war reparations. However, the treaty recognized that Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball switched sides on 24 August 1944 and therefore "acted in the interests of all the United Nations". As a reward, Transylvania-icon.png Northern Transylvaniaball was recognized as an integral part of Kingdom of Romania-icon.png Kingdom of Romaniaball, but the border with Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball was fixed at its state in January 1941, restoring Bessarabia-icon.png Bessarabiaball and Bukovina-icon.png Northern Bukovinaball to Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball and leaving Southern Dobrujaball to Bulgaria-icon.png Bulgariaball.

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

    The 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, he hunted down and arrested all the democrats and legionaries from his clay.


    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 Czechia-icon.png Czechoslovakiaball in 1968 with the rest of the Warsaw Pact and even spoke against it. This was met this was meet with cheers by the population and they considered him 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 his 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, he 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, he decided to take the money he 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 the Warsaw Pact 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 his wife 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!
    — Hooligans' Anthem

    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 he 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: 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.

    Romaniaball had a new constitution in 1991 and Moldova-icon.png Moldovaball became independent. But Russia-icon.png Russiaball helped a coup in the region of Transnistria-icon.png Transnistriaball by sending the army (like they are doing today in Ukraine-icon.png Ukraineball, back then Ukraine-icon.png Ukraineball helped Russia-icon.png Russiaball sending troops, what goes around comes around I guess) and to this day Russia-icon.png Russiaball has troops stationed in Transnistriaball for "peacekeeping," which makes the union unlikely.

    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 his wars. In 2004 Romaniaball entered NATO-icon.png NATOball and in 2007 entered with Bulgaria-icon.png Bulgariaball in EU-icon.png EUball.

    On the 30th of October 2015 the Collective Club fire occurred, many people went on the street and protested peacefully against the government because if the corruption wasn't dominating the government the Collective Club incident wasn't going to happen. The protests were successful and the Social-Democrat Party (PSD) resigned, the new government of the National Liberal Party (PNL) had success for a while and Romaniaball became the fastest growing economy of Europe with a GDP growth of 6%.

    Bulgaria helps Romania in protest.jpg

    But in February 2017, the Social-Democrat Party (PSD) promised better salaries and won the elections with 45% of the votes. Everyone else, including president Klaus Iohannis that was part of the National Liberal Party (PNL) before becoming president, warned that such a thing is impossible and that Social-Democrat Party (PSD) is lying to gain votes, the population was fooled, but the population made its choice. Not only they didn't increase salaries as they promised, but inflation increased due to their incompetent leadership.

    Shortly after they were in power again, the Social-Democrat Party (PSD) wanted to make a law to forgive some of the corrupt politicians that are in jail and liberate them. Over 600,000 people, including the president Klaus Iohannis (as a semi-presidential republic the president doesn't have the power to veto everything), protested peacefully against the government again and again for a week until the government accepted their demands. The law was abrogated but the Social-Democrat Party (PSD) remained in power.

    Social-Democrat Party (PSD) used the prime-minister as a scapegoat and voted to remove him. But the same party is still in power and dark days lie ahead. Our hope stands in Laura Codruța Kövesi who is the current chief prosecutor of the National Anticorruption Directorate and the only thing still keeping Social-Democrat Party (PSD) in check. To a lesser extent, President Klaus Iohannis also helps (he's a silent workhouse, doesn't speak much but does a lot) but not as much since Romaniaball is a semi-presidential republic and the president has limited power. If you thought Donald Trump has a low approval rating, you should see Social-Democrat Party (PSD), they are almost unilaterally hated.

    The current prime-minister is Viorica Dăncilă, one of the most illiterate politicians and a dumb blonde. She didn't know the capital of Montenegroball, thought Iranball is in Europe, confused Sloveniaball with Slovakiaball, and can barely speak 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.

    On the date of the 11th of October 2019, a golden day happened in Romania, PSD has been voted off by the opposition, after 18 years of lies and corruption, Ceaușist government's son is dying, now Romania is less corrupt and more optimistic, it could finally join Schengen, which PSD's rival party (PNL) promised, and will happen, TAKE THAT DĂNCILĂ!

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