    Syriaball, officially the Violent Syrian Arab Republicball, is a countryball in the Middle East who is an embattled state, embroiled in a heinous war. It is bordered by Turkey-icon.png Turkeyball to the north and northwest, Jordan-icon.png Jordanball to the south and southeast, Iraq-icon.png Iraqball to the east and southeast, and Lebanon-icon.png Lebanonball and then Israel-icon.png Israelcube to the southwest.

    The countryball was originally divided into 14 districtballs, but due to a large amount of separatism, it's hard to say now. Altogether, it has a total area of 71,500 square miles, making it the 87th largest country in the world. It had a population of around 20 million before the war was sent upon it, but as of 2019, it now has 18,499,181 inhabitants due to the Syrian Migration Crisis from 2014 till now.

    It is currently suspended from the Arab League-icon.png Arab Leagueball and OIC-icon.png OICball, and is one of the most popular destination for UN-icon.png UN Peacekeeping programs.

    It hates the thought of it but often is left with no choice but to drop bombs on its own clay. It's easy to think it is a result of UK-icon.png UKball and France-icon.png Franceball deciding to make a coloring book of the Middle East and pushing a bunch of different ethnic groups into one country and crossing their fingers. Today, Syriaball is still fighting through the Syrian Civil War.

    Its national day is April 17.

    History

    Throughout history, Syriaball was a proud trampling ground for stronger countryballs. It was part of the Egyptian empire, then, of course, it was part of the Babylon-icon.png Babylonian Empireball and the Assyria-icon.png Assyrian Empireball many times. In the 7th century B.C until it was annexed by Achaemenid-icon.png Persiaball in 538 B.C., who occupied it until it was taken by Alexander the Great 200 years later.

    After that it was a free, self-sufficient countryball, but then was subdued by the SPQR-icon.png SPQRball in 64 B.C., and later fell under the rule of the Byzantine-icon.png Byzantineball until 634 A.D. Syriaball became known as Poland-icon.png Polandball of Middle East because no other territory is so easily conquered, though, in terms of geography, it makes sense and explains why its parent loved mountains so much.

    Abbasid-icon.png Rashidunball conquered Syriaball from Byzantine-icon.png Byzantineball. A few years later, Mu'awiya I let a revolt in Syriaball and it destroyed Abbasid-icon.png Rashidunball. Umayyad-icon.png Umayyadball was born, and centered the capital to Damascus-icon.png Damascusball to extend Islamic influence. Umayyad-icon.png Umayyadball too would be killed in a revolt by Abbasid-icon.png Abbasidball. Centruries after, Ottoman-icon.png Ottomanball would defeat Mamluk-icon (rawr).png Mamlukrawr and conquer the region.

    Creation

    Arabballs despised Ottoman-icon.png Ottomanball's rule and dreamt of having their own clay. When a World War broke out in Europe, UK-icon (soldier).png UKball promised its ally in Arabia Kingdom of Hejaz-icon.png Kingdom of Hejazball to gain Syriaball's clay if they sided with the UK-icon (soldier).png France-icon (soldier 1916).png allies, which they did.

    After the Arabs successfully revolted they created a few states. However, France-icon (soldier 1916).png Franceball felt like it wasn't getting what it wanted from the Middle East, so UK-icon (soldier).png UKball and France-icon (soldier 1916).png Franceball had to sign the secret Sykes–Picot Agreement treaty that would give them their future clays after the war.

    Now that the Arab Kingdom of Syria-icon.png Arab Kingdom of Syriaball was of independence, it could have been the next stronk power of the middle east right? Wrong. France-icon.png Franceball had not recognized this Arab Kingdom as a legitimate state.

    As from the secret Sykes-Picot Agreement treaty, Syriaball was of meant to be of future French clay. Franceball would later betray and anschluss Syriaball in the Franco-Syrian War. Syriaball's king in Damascusball surrounded and was then forced to flee to Kingdom of Iraq-icon.png Iraqball.

    It was created after the San Remo Conference, France-icon.png Franceball quickly set up a civilian administration in the mandate. The regions were divided based on the sectarian makeup of the people there, but that doesn't automatically make these sects friendly, especially the Sunni population of Damascus and Aleppo.

    In 1922, the State of Damascusball, State of Aleppoball, and Alawite Stateball was merged into a single State of Syria-icon (1924-30).png federation, with Sanjak of Alexandretta added in 1923. But this federation was dissolved following the secession of Alawite Stateball in 1924, the remaining states were later united into a single state. Jabal Druze State-icon.png One of these sects still wasn't happy about French rule and caused the Great Syrian Revolt, where despite it spreading to other parts of Syriaball, uniting many religious and ethnic groups of the country, was still torn down by France-icon.png Franceball who bombed Syriaball's clay.

    France-icon.png Franceball was forcefully given self-governance to State of Syria-icon (1924-30).png Syriaball, something State of Syria-icon (1924-30).png Syriaball smiled at. A constitution was finally made 5 years after and the FSA-icon.png Syrians were allowed to create several Syrian Nationalism-icon.png nationalist parties.

    But in 1940, Vichy France-icon.png Vichy Franceball occupied most of Syriaball's clay. In 1942, UK-icon.png UKball's forces liberated most of French Syriaball's clay. After that, modern Syria-icon.png Syriaball resulted from the drawing skills of UK-icon.png UKball and France-icon.png Franceball.

    By 24 October 1945, Syriaball was declared independent with Franceball's mandatory. The FSA-icon.png First Syrian Republicball changed consitution in 1950, becoming the FSA-icon.png Second Syrian Republicball.

    FSA-icon.png Syriaball was democratic, but overtime its instability become unstable. First, there was fear of assassinations, because on the Syrian president's was killed before the 1950 consitution was drafted. Next, became a military dictatorship from 1951 to 1953, and a pro-western one from 1953 1954. Then Syriaball went though another personality change. Atleast peace was made with Israel-icon.png Israelcube. This led to a years of curroption, instability and supression of speech.

    In 1958, FSA-icon.png Syriaball joined forces with Republic of Egypt-icon (1953-1958).png Egyptball to create the Syria-icon.png United Arab Republicball. The problem with the union was Syriaball never had any political power and had just become a puppet of Egyptball.

    3 years later, FSA-icon.png Syriaball told Republic of Egypt-icon (1953-1958).png Egyptball it was leaving and did so. In 1963, Ba'athism-icon.png Ba'athists launched a coup known as the March Revolution and seized power, ending the FSA-icon.png Second Syrian Republicball.

    Now, the new Syria-icon (1963-1972).png Syriaball will either stand strong or fall, and this next year or so is its chance to show the world it won't give up.

    In 1970, Syriaball tried to revert some changes about itself after Corrective Movement took place, and reformed itself under Hafez al-Assad.

    Syria-icon.png Egyptball wanted to retry another union with Syria-icon (1963-1972).png Syriaball with Yemen-icon.png Libyaball involved, forming the Libyan Arab Republic-icon.png Federation of Arab Republicsball. Allied with Egypt, Syria-icon (1963-1972).png Syriaball was later was one of the countries that had attacked Israel-icon.png Israelcube, the result of defeat in the war lead to Israel-icon.png Israelcube occupying some Syrian clay known as the Golan Heights up to this day. Syriaball is still pissed off about it.

    The region is now disputed UN-icon.png UNball territory between the two, even if most countryballs had internationally recognized it for Syria. The federation disbanded in 1977 because Gaddafi Libya-icon.png Libyaball left.

    Hafez al-Assad brought back democracy, but he was elected many times by the people. It just seemed they loved his reforms which bulit up the country. Near to his death in 2000, he allowed his son Bashar al-Assad to rule the country.

    Syrian Civil War?

    In 2011, during the Arab Spring, Syriaball erupted into a civil war between three rival factions: Kurdistan Forces, Syrian Government, and Syrian "Rebels". Though many have exposed USAball and Saudi Arabiaball of funding these "democratic rebels". Regardless, USAball and co. cannot into caring. The Government then warned the west of the threat of ISIS-icon.png ISISball, which the west largely dismissed.

    A bunch of countries decided to intervene and it became the ground for a proxy war between Russia-icon.png Russiaball, USA-icon.png USAball and Turkey-icon.png Turkeyball who are each trying to gear Syria-icon.png Syriaball to their vision of its future, Russia-icon.png Russiaball wanting to help Syriaball live, and USA-icon.png USAball wanting to support a Syriaball that would be loyal to the west.

    Ceasefires, chemical weapons, and drones, beheadings by ISIS-icon.png ISISball, and jihadists basically describe the situation right now, as each country tries to assert their will over the countryball. Syriaball may be fighting longer to avoid a nightmare of becoming a failed state for a little while longer until someone actually decides to grow up and think of it.

    Many current world events in the world result from this, including the European Migrant Crisis and ISIS-icon.png ISISball claiming a bunch of clay. Basically thanks to this clay takeover, Syriaball has allied with other regional groups to retake the countryball, with possible assumed autonomy heeeeheeheh!! Many things have changed in Syriaball in the last few years.

    Russiaball, one of its closest allies, came to help it defend itself and its sovereignty. Examples of such victories with allied assistance are the utter annihilation of Jihadists in Syria-icon (division).png Latakiaball in 2016, the capture of Palmyra (and later recapture) in 2016 and 2017, and the Liberation of Aleppoball in 2016! (In time for new years).

    In early 2017, two major offensives have been undertaken. One has pushed ISIS-icon.png ISISball almost out of Syria-icon (division).png Aleppoball's territory, and another near its parent Assyria-icon.png Assyriaballs historic Al Qaratayn, liberated 1400 KM of its precious clay, also opening up the Damascus-Palmyra highway.

    It was in May 2017 as well to mention that Syriaball and Russiaball have announced they will push through its hellish desert in order to reach Deirezzourball, who has been through hell in the last few years surrounded by ISIS-icon.png ISISball on all sides.

    In June 2017, Syriaball with its allies pushed and liberated from ISIS its final Aleppo stronghold of Maskanah. With this liberation, it shows a lovely example of ISIS's weakening state, as in 2017 it has been pushed out of Syria-icon (division).png Aleppoball's clay.

    With Maskanahball liberated, this has also shown the army can enter Raqqaballs territory, as it was on June 7th, 2017 the administrative border has been reached. Only time can tell though if Syriaball and its friends will continue onwards with this front to push into Raqqaballs clay and help.

    PMUball has also talked of wishing to assist Syriaball if the two can reach the border together.

    In April 2018, Syriaball 'supposedly' used chemical weapons on its own citizens again. In response to this, USAball, UKball, Franceball, and others launched combined strikes on Syriaball's clay. This action resulted in escalated tensions between USball and Russiaball, the latter clearly stating not to launch those kinds of strikes on Syriaball. An emergency meeting between the two had to be called to ease the tension. or else all hell breaks loose.
