It has a total of 14,919km² (5,760m²) of clay and 1,317,780 inhabitants, making it the 154th largest and 153rd most populous countryball.

    It wants into ASEAN-icon.png ASEANcoin, but is often really saddened about this issue because Singapore-icon.png Tringapore won't let it in.

    History

    Timor-Lesteball and its friend/sibling West Timor-icon.png West Timorball were born as a united 7-icon.png 7ball and a 1-icon.png 1ball. Portuguese Empire-icon.png Kingdom of Portugalball and the Netherlands-icon.png United Kingdom of the Netherlandsball adopted/colonized the two parts.

    They split them in half at following WW2 Japanese-Empire-icon.png Empire of Japanball who tormented it from its Parent but they were neutral until 1945 when theUSA-icon.png USAball bombed it. When Indonesia-icon.png Indonesiaball gained independence, Timor-Lestebola didn't join it, instead staying under Portugal-icon.png Portugalball's protection until Salazar was removed from office in 1974.

    With Portugal-icon.png Portugalball has a change of personality in 1974, it gave more freedom towards its Colony-icon.png overseas colonies. At this point, East Timorball suffered from multiple personality disorder. There were two big factions on its head: Fretilin, who is of Soviet-icon.png leftist and wants independence, and UDT, who wants to keep ties with Portugal-icon.png Portugalball.

    Nevertheless, they both decided to unite for independence, however, the coalition was short-lived as Australia-icon.png Australiaball and Indonesia-icon.png Indonesiaball didn't want any commieballs in their backyard (Fretilin). So, both countries approached UDT and succesfully convincing them to broke ties with Fretilin, causing civil war in 1975.

    UDT later launched a coup against Portugal-icon.png Portuguese Timor government in August 1975 to scare off Fretilin. The situation deteriorated and plunged into chaos as Portugal-icon.png Portugalball didn't even tried to mediate or stop what was happening.

    Fretilin, without any option left, decided to declare East Timor-icon.png East Timorball's independence, which happened on November 28, 1975. This is considered by many as East Timor's de facto independence.

    UDT, unhappy with the situation, finally decided to side with Indonesia-icon.png Indonesiaball and alongside some other Indonesian loyalist factions declared 'Balibo Declaration which basically asked Indonesia-icon.png Indonesiaball to annex East Timor.

    This became the pretext for Indonesia-icon.png Indonesiaball to Anschluss East Timor, which happened on December 7, 1975. This is the day of infamy for East Timorball.

    It was happy without Portugal. So, it rebelled until the time when Indonesia's German-style Anschlussed it and making his clay the un-rightful 27th Province of Indonesia, leaving it traveling to Macau-icon.png Macauball.

    Indonesia-icon.png Indonesiaball brutally enslaved it during this era due to military occupation.

    After Soeharto's downfall in 1998, his successor, Germany-icon.png German-educated BJ Habibie permitted Timor Timur to commit referendum in 1999. Timor-Lestebola became a fully independent state in 2002.

    Its first friend ever was Western Sahara-icon.png Western Saharaball, since it was the first one to recognize it as an independent country. Morocco-icon.png Moroccoball, free my friend plox! And also it also recognizes Kosovo-icon.png Kosovoball as an independent country unlike Indonesia-icon.png Indonesiaball
