Socialist Republic of Gribostan is a dominant nation in the server's North. Having completed their ultimate mission, it is experiencing a period of stagnation. Despite not being legally recognised, it is still there, and who knows when they'll rise again…

Before /int/

Originally, Gribostan was founded on some lame ass Aternos server, where Urfin played together with his real-life friends. Server had no rules expect “no cheating”, and so Urfin struggled to maintain the nation together in a series of conflicts and wars, with the base being griefed and moved several times. When the dust finally settled and Gribostan had a chance for peace, an election was held. Urfin lost to NewtonSava and together with G21_JARTOP was exiled from the nation. But shortly after population got very unhappy with leadership of Sava, and switched sides back to Urfin.

Meanwhile the server pretty much died. Urfin suddenly remembered about Krautchan /int/, where he played several years before, and led his people here.

Settlement of Gribostan

In late December, 2021 Urfin and G21 started the construction of what will grow to be the nation's capital. Several key buildings were done, and with that, Urfin accepted Rickroll's invitation to join Slavia, a russian-speaking tsardom that is not that far away from Gribostan. But Rick's rule, mainly his judjement of Gribostan architecture, very quickly grew unpopular among people of Gribostan, and so Urfin started preparing a revolt.

War of Independence

Gribostan seceded from with Slavia on 29th of December, when some fucking unknown rat snitched Rickroll found out about Urfins intended revolt and declared war on him. The first battle of the war was extremely destructive, with withers obliterating several builds and farms. But nevertheless, in the end Rick admitted defeat in the battle and retreated, although refusing to accept peace conditions, offered by Urfin right away. But on January 5th, Rickroll and Urfin signed a peace treaty, in which Slavia granted independence to Gribostan.

The Golden Age

January of 2022 was very succesful for Gribostan. The nation's population grew, new foundations were laid, and the capital city expanded. G21_JARTOP finished the greatest project of the nation so far - a blackstone/deepslate castle on a hill. The economy has recovered from the consequences of war and was thriving and independent in terms of necessities and other useful stuff. Also, people of the nation were quite succesful during MegaRaids and other events, earning priceless rewards and unique items, strenghtening the nation even further.

Second War with Slavia

On January 29th, 2022 Urfin decided that terms of peace were not adequate to relative powers of Slavia and Gribostan and issued a response ultimatum to Rickroll, which was declined. Two nations are currently at war and some minor skirmishes, particulary with sxiv, are happening sometimes, but no major battle have taken place so far. But the lull did not last long. First G21 notices sxiv on the residents' farm. The subsequent battle did not bring any results. No one died. However, on February 18, 2022, the battle for Gribostan begins, as a result of which several people were killed, a serious blow was inflicted on the infrastructure of both the city of Gribostan and all adjacent territories, as well as on all three cities of Slavia, and all thanks to a ton of withers, furnaces and quick hands of each of the participants. As a result of some drama within the nation, G21_JARTOP became an new leader and signed a peace treaty between Slavia and Gribostan. This led to catastrophic results, and damages done to the city were never repaired. Soon after the war, G21_JARTOP and his supporters fled the remnants of the nation and formed Lunalus, abandoning their homeland for good.

The New Rise

In September 2022, original leader of the nation, Urfin_Djus has returned to bring Gribostan back to its former glory. Thirsty for blood of his enemies and seeking revenge for all the crimes commited against Gribostan by the Slavians, he started to rebuild a new army in the ruins of the capital city. Now the ultimate goal of Gribostan was The Great Trial.

Many battles were fought and won, and after destroying Slavian capital and killing Tsar Rickroll, Urfin has proclaimed The Trial to be over. A new order was established with Gribostan as one of the most powerful military forces on the server, but lack of further goals led to the nation becoming partially inactive. Following Slavian defeat, forts were constructed on former Slavian territory, and Somali was annexed into the nation as a colony.

The Dead City (City of Gribostan)

Gribostan is located in a birch forest with some ass of a terrain. This means that each new construction requires terraforming and tree-chopping first. Borders conveniently happen to be along the rivers and lakes, making defence significantly easier in the event of invasion. Some kind of walls were built for defence purposes, aswell as a castle on the hill. The city is badly damaged, probably beyond repair, to the point of becoming uninhabitable and now only serves as a headquarters of Urfin's army.

Training Grounds

Seeking to improve Gribostan's strength back in December, Urfin set up a training ground, which is currently used by nation's military for both training and weapon testing purposes. A small ugly cobblestone castle was constructed there to imitate a scenario of siege combat. The facility is now abandoned.

The Unnamed Forest

After an hour long debate the subject of which was the forest's name ended indecisively, the forest got the name of Unnamed Forest. This forest is a national nature reserve, which means that the cutting of birch trees is strictly prohibited there.

Empty Fields

The crop fields were constructed by Runaway_Zombie to feed the nation, but were largely unused. In the battle of Mutual Destruction, the crops were destroyed along with everything else, leaving behind a depressing sight of empty farmlands. A war monument was constructed by Salah after the wars.

Fort Subwehr

Following Gribostani victory over Slavia, a fort was constructed by Urfin on former Slavian territory in a strategic location to ensure control and easy access of Gribostani forces to the area.

Somali Colony

Somali originally started out as a breakaway nation led by Urfin. But after regaining control of the Gribostani mainland, Somali became just a periphery or a colony of his.

Originally, Gribostan was, as opposed to Slavia, a democratic socialist republic, meaning that all the means production of the nation belonged exclusively to people, to avoid exploitation and wealth inequality. The nation was governed by a democraticaly elected leader to avoid stagnation and ensure progress and justice. Gribostan had a parliament and appointed People's Comissars, but now this system is abolished.

Now all the power in the state is concentrated in hands of General Urfin_Djus.

The economy of Gribostan at the beginning of the war was growing and modernizing, but as a result of a battle involving withers several important buildings and farms were damaged and knocked out of service. This led to economic stagnation and return of mining as primary source of income. However, vital military infrastructure remained untouched, leading to people of the nation still being capable of continuing their war against oppressors.

It was rebuilt and developed further during the Golden Age of the nation, but completely obliterated in the Battle of Mutual Destruction. For a while nation almost exclusively lived off of Urfin's stock of resources that he managed to evacuate during the war. However, when Wendy joined the nation, her efforts were crucial in restoration of the industrial base and economic recovery. Now the nation is richer than ever.

Originally, the culture of Gribostan was heavily inspired by that of Soviet Union and gloryfied the working class and its struggle. However, after the Reborn, it became largely depressing, pessimistic and revenge-focused.
