History[edit | edit source]
The Sererball and Fulaballs of Senegambia united to form the Muslim Tekrurball. It was known for gibings gold and salt to Islamic merchants. Almoravidball came and taught Takrurball Islam. Some Sererballs would flee Takrurball's clay to escape the persecution of their Animist religion. Some while ago it got annexed by Mali Empireball who collapsed and gave independence to some countries like its ancestor Jolof Empireball and Waaloball. Waaloball used to pay tributes to Jolof Empireball before its annexation to the empire.
A serer guy from Waaloball's clay, Ndiadiane Ndiaye, was offered kingship and a beautiful wife after he was kidnapped by Wolof soldiers, he did something that helped the population and that's why he got the throne. (Note that the name "Ndiadiane Ndiaye" is what the people of Jolof Empireball heard and decided to call him that, his real name was Amadu Bubakar Ibn Muhammed).It was divided into constitutional states; Wolof speaking Waaloball, Cayorball and Baolball at north and Serer speaking Kingdom of Sineball and Saloumball north of Gambiaball's river. A state ruler was regularly selected by the nobles through voting, and then once in a while, they necessarily pay tributes to the emperor. Wolof nobles were on top of the empire's class, citizens and workers in the middle, and slaves were at the button.
Thought the 13th century, Jolof Empireball had established trade with Berbersball. The empire produced sorghum (plant) and millet and traded gold, ivory, and slaves to Berbersball.
In the mid-1400s to the 1500s, Portugalball came in the Senegalese coasts between 1444 and 1510 and they became friends. Portugalball traded firearms and gold with Jolofball in exchange for later slaves), and the two would become friends. Portugalball built Dakarball as a trade post. Ziguinchorball was also created later. Portugalball described how our political system was advanced. Many of the slaves sold to the Portuguese were Animists that were kidnapped and their homes raided. In the 1480s the ruler who studied in Portugalball's clay was kicked out from the country, Portugalball who wanted a puppet on the throne decided to send an army under a Portuguese commander to put the prince back on the throne of Jolof Empireball, a dispute started between the prince and the commander which resulted with his death.
Despite its internal feuds Jolof Empireball was strong, in the 16th century it could field 100,000 infantry and 10,000 cavalries, Jolof Empireball became important in the historical Triangular trade (aka Atlantic slave trade) by kidnapping animists it could find in its clay. However, the influence in the region by Empire of Great Fuloball, a Fula jihad state, would contribute to the fall of the empire. Sineball and Saloumball then declared freedom from the empire.
Sineball's biased stories claimed it never had to pay tribute to Jolof Empireball. In 1512 Futa Toroball (Fulani state in eastern Senegalball) tried to take the land that was seized from Maliball by Songhaiball, but had its leader Tenguella killed in action. Cayorball's geographical location made it benefit from the coastal trade more than the rest of the coastal states, which would indicate separatism. 1549 was Cayorball breaking apart from Jolof Empireball making it not only landlocked but also cease to exist as an empire. In the same year Cayorball invaded its southern neighbor, Baolball. In the 1600s the post-Jolof states started dueling each other and had plenty of conflicts. Dutch West India Companyball settled on the island clay of Gorée in 1617 and brought its colony to life. The colony was named Senegambiaball, and it was assigned to build a slave factory and find and sell 8balls to the Companyball to make its father proud.
The main customers of 16th century the time were Franceball, Portugalball, Englandball, and Netherlands. Waaloball offered Europeans slaves and gum rice for firearms and clothing, while Sineball offered fish, millets, and groundnut. On 1625, Franceball built up Saint-Louisball with Waaloball's permission, creating the colony of French Senegalball under the Norman Companyball (later absorbed into the French West Indies Companyball). After Franceball got into a war with Dutch West India Companyball, its child Senegambiaball was ceded. British Empireball held poor Senegalball hostage during and after Seven Years War. British Empireball declared Senegal its next crown colony, but when Thirteen Coloniesball got a bit rebellious, Britainball said "Wait here m8" and left. Franceball snuck back after. "Je te manque, Sénégal?"
Franceball wasn't really into anschlussing nearby kingdoms because the Cap-Vert et du Sénégal Company hadn't skyrocketed. In the 1850s, she also started teaching Christianity to its child in religious classes. Franceball was to replace slavery with forced labour at least. In 1855, Franceball invaded Waaloball, and 4 years later Franceball then went after Baolball, taking it out in 1889 and later Cayorball at both 1868 and 1879. Senegalball was important to the rest of French West Africaball, as its geographical location in Africa brought Senegalese workers a link to expand to other future colonies. In the 1880s, Sineball and Saloumball were conquered too and made vassals. (Reminder Saloumball beaten Franceball in a war). Ziguinchorball was handed over from Kingdom of Portugalball because of the continental partition.
The region as French Senegalball, along with French Sudanball and French Nigerball was connected together as ¨Upper Senegal and Nigerball¨, but Franceball divided part of the territory into French Senegalball. During the colonization, Franceball made Senegalball pick cotton and harvest rice to them. While Sernegaleseballs lived in poor conditions, Franceball lived its life off this exploitation with trade in the capital Dakarball. Eventually, Senegaleseballs got tired and started "La Resistance" a separatist movement that got defeated by Franceball.
When Franceball fell to the Naziballs, Free Franceball asked it's West African colonies to join the resistance, but they all said "NON!" and stayed with Vichy Franceball. Free Franceball quickly tried to siege Dakarball from Vichy Franceball, but failed to do so. By 1944, Vichy Franceball lost control over French West Africaball to Free Franceball. The Senegalese were to help liberate Franceball. With support, they did so, but the poor conditions they lived through made the colonial army mutiny. due to the lack of payment and poorness protests against Free Franceball with was suppressed with a horrible and unforgettable massacre. To this day Senegalball is still sick about it and claims that a hundred lost their lives after protesting for better rights. But Franceball denied it happened.
Léopold Sédar Senghor, a former Resistance fighter was elected as governor of French Senegalball and French Mauritaniaball which was associated in the French Unionball. His support for the working class as well as his African bloodline would make him an Afro-socialist. Leopold also pushed the country to its own path as colonial elections would happen in 1956 and 1957. Senegalball was given autonomy by Franceball on November 25 1958 after voting to join French Communityball (future Francaphonieball) in a referendum. With French Sudanball's approval from Senegalball, they merged and evolved to the Mali Federationball, but it later split due to internal power struggles, but they are still best bros to this day. Senegal became fully independent on the 20th of June, 1960.
For 20 years, Senegalball was ruled by Léopold, who implemented ideas of African Socialism. The Senegalese Democratic Bloc (later the Socialist Party of Senegal) kept the countryball going, but they also eroded a number of the democratic principles of Senegalball that were able to prevent complete economic collapse through one-party rule but they still had a fledgling non-expanding economy for decades. This could theorize why Senegalball is a poor country today. Léopold Sédar Senghor didn't mess around, because he arrested prime minister Mamadou Dia of planning a coup d'etat in 1962, and half a decade later executed Moustapha Lô of attempting to kill him.
Senegalball faced conflict from old friend Portugalball who was trespassing it's clay to crush an uprising in Portuguese Guineaball. Many of the talks with the UNball resulted in the discouragement of Portuguese troops using Senegal as a free trespass zone. In the 1970s Senegalball started to allow opposition parties.
Senegalball helped prevent the 1981 coup against Gambiaball. Senegalball tried an economic confederation with The Gambiaball to establish the Senegambia Confederationball on 1 February 1982. The economy started to improve, which the politicians saw as a good idea. Unfortunately Gambiaball's people weren't willing to actually have a country with Senegalball. The Gambia took its independence, stealing all the rivers from Senegalball and not sharing even one bit of water. Its break-up worsened the economic situation in Casamanceball, considerably contributing to the independence movement. Despite formal peace talks, the Christians and Animist Jolaballs south of the Gambia river still clash against the Senegalese Muslim Wolofballs in the North.
Surprisingly, the second Senegalese president Abdou Diouf volunteered to step down as president after 19 years of rule with 3 re-elections. For the first time, democratic elections were held starting in 2000. Senegalball decided it would become the first mainland West Africanball to become a democracy though peace
all of Senegalball's neighbors can't into relate. The Socialist Party of Senegal (PSS) boycotted in 2007 because of voter irregularities. You can make your own guesses as to wherever the Senegal government began to tamper with elections after that or if the opposition did so to undermine the election.
In 2017, Senegalball was the main character of ECOWASball that invaded The Gambiaball due to the undemocratic government. Senegalball really likes taking up Gambiaball's personal space. Since the pandemic struck, tourism was been on pause, disappointing Senegal, but is slowly bouncing back. Senegalball can also into AFCON champion.
