    Togo-icon.png Togoball begins to sing its Anthem

    Togoball is a worm countryball in Western Africa. Its clay borders that of Benin-icon.png Beninball, Ghana-icon.png Ghanaball and Burkina Faso-icon.png Burkina Fasoball. Like its neighbours, it cannot into much relevance.

    It is a member of the Atlantic-Congo family (AKA West Africans).

    History

    8-icon.png Before the Berlin Conference Togo-icon.png

    Togoball is descended from West African 8-icon.png 8balls, as are all its brothers. It was inhabited by the Eve people who were also natives of its siblings and some influence under the Kingdom of Dahomey-icon.png Kingdom of Dahomeyball. Most of the early history of Togoball was unknown until PortugueseEmpire-icon.png Portuguese Empireball was writing stuff down.

    Then German Empire-icon.png Germany was afraid that serious conflicts could rise in African Union-icon.png Africa overland between the EU-icon.png European powers so it hosted the German Empire-icon.png Berlin Conference to divide up the continent. It decided to find a German Togoland-icon.png settlement in its clay. Then it slowly took up the rest of Togo-icon.png Togoball.

    The German Empire-icon.png German Empireball established the German Togoland-icon.png Togoland protectorate in 1884. Under German Empire-icon.png German administration, the protectorate was regarded as a model colony or German Togoland-icon.png Musterkolonie and experienced a dark age of forced labor. That to its child German Togoland-icon.png Togoland was by planting cotton, coffee, and cocoa, forced to do this all for its German Empire-icon.png abusive parent.

    During the France-icon.png USA-icon.png UK-icon.png First World War German Empire-icon.png Austria-Hungary-icon.png Ottoman-icon.png in 1914, German Togoland-icon.png Togoball had no army, but rather a German officer and some armed civilians and a radar pole. After German Empire-icon.png German Empireball was defeated and the signing of the France-icon.png USA-icon.png UK-icon.png Treaty of Versailles German Empire-icon.png Austria-Hungary-icon.png Ottoman-icon.png, the western part of British Gold Coast-icon.png Togoland joined British Gold Coast-icon.png British Gold Coastball. Czech-icon.png Czechoslovakiaball had wished for the colony to be theirs, but UK-icon.png UKball and France-icon.png Franceball just laghed. French Togoland-icon.png Togolandball became a French mandate of French West Africa-icon.png West Africa.

    French Togoland-icon.png Path to Independence UN-icon.png

    Following Nazi-icon.png Japanese-Empire-icon.png Italy-icon.png Second World War UK-icon.png USA-icon.png Soviet-icon.png, French Togoland-icon.png French Togolandball became a UN-icon.png United Nations Trust Territory. It also had the right to send its representatives to France-icon.png Franceball. Togo-icon.png Togoball voted to stay in French-icon.png French Communityball in 1958 elections, where British Gold Coast-icon.png British Togolandball abandoned it for Ghana-icon.png Ghanaball. Togoball was given freedom, whereupon it became even less relevant than before.

    Togo-icon.png Togoball gained the sense it needed to break off its former colonizer's influence. Togo-icon.png Togoball had the idea of printing a currency separate from the African CFA franc that other Francophonie African countryballs were using. France-icon.png Franceball was in a cold war and they needed allies around the world to be rich and stronk including former colonies. France-icon.png Franceball got involved in backing a coup that got Togo-icon.png Sylvanus Olympio killed only 3 days into making the currency. His rival, Nicolas Grunitzky took over as president.

    4 years after, Togo-icon.png Eyadéma Gnassingbé couped Nicolas and became dictator, and banned all other parties except his. He ruled Togo-icon.png Togo would be ruled by a dictatorship but was backed by the French government.

    In the 1990s Gnassingbé created reforms allowing multi-party elections, but in 1993, the "Union of Forces for Change", an opposition group boycotted the election because they assumed Gnassingbé was rigging it to stay in office and claimed that Gilchrist Olmypio won. In 1998, the "Union of Forces for Change", another opposition group denounced him for "rigging elections". Gnassingbé was also believed to rig the election in 2003.

    In 2005, Eyadéma Gnassingbé died of a heart attack while on a flight to Tunisia-icon.png Tunisiaball. Togo-icon.png Togoball is now ruled by Eyadéma's son Togo-icon.png Faure Gnassingbé who got elected by the military. The African Union-icon.png African Unionball denounced this as a coup and pressured Faure to step down. After the transition, Togo-icon.png Faure Gnassingbé was democratic made president tOtaLLy nOt rIggED!1!1!1. The Union of Forces for Change continued to oppose the president until the 2010s.

    Togo-icon.png Togoball over the last years hasn't improved, and the country is still run like a hereditary dictatorship.

    It is said that Togoball lost its eye in a fight over some clay with Benin-icon.png Beninball. No one knows who won the fight, except for Nigeria-icon.png Nigeriaball who charges to tell the story.
