Iquen History

Events

Black Horse

1590 - 1654

Established one of the first know Native settlements in early Iquen. Though the tribe name cannot be recalled, the tribe’s culture and beliefs spread throughout the land, and branched out into 2 more unknown tribes.
These 3 tribes were called the Great 3, and they were all fierce warriors.

Great War of Native Victors

1605 - 1607

This war lasted from 1605-1607, and a bloody one it was.
An estimated total of 70,000 dead, this war was the bloodiest war known for centuries, this is the reason why no one wanted the red grass of the land.
As the war progressed on and on, the Native got more and more victories, and the Chinese more and more losses.
Finally, in 1607, the Chinese surrendered and the Native tribes of the land were aloud to stay for as long as they thrived. The Natives then realized that most of their villages were destroyed or burnt down. This made the remaining survivors form a new group of people, the Iswen.
This group thrived for almost 2 centuries, until they were lost in history when they died off in 1793.

Rebuild of Destruction

1623

n 1623, we can recall a great act of hate against the Natives of what is now Iquen. A group of Chinese villagers came with knives in their crusty hands, and started a great massacre. They cut and slashed at their weak wooden houses. The final death toll was 150, the largest act of murder in the history of that land.
The area of the massacre is blocked off in a National park. No one is aloud on the scene unless they have paid a large amount of our currency.

Wrench Haung

1693 - 1734

A Chinese Architect who moved in here to runaway from his normal life. He is known for building the first official public village for any other runaways. This village has saved many lives, with a stable resource of food, water, and of course, shelter. This village still remains today in a secret area that the government won’t reveal for numerous reason. It is said that it is haunted by the ghosts of the villagers who got shot by the government of Russia in 1733. Others say that the village does not even exist, and the stories about it are all folklore. No one knows the truth.

Government's Take Down

1733

In 1733, the government of Russia found out that some people got out of the country illegally and went to the hideout of war-lands, so they decided to take matters in their own hands. They went to the hideout and clumsily tried to shoot at any criminals with their dusty guns who hid at the village. Approximately 50 criminals got shot, 37 died, while 20 innocents were shot, and 16 died.

Lachlan Adam

1756 - 1810

Lachlan Adams is an American explorer of the late 1780s. He has always wanted to own his own country, so he took a leap at an unowned/uncontrolled area of land next to China. It was a great deal of land that neither the Chinese or the Russians wanted, as it was land that soldiers to fight for victory, the war being later called “Great War of Native Victors” for the soldiers were Native Americans of an old tribe called “Iswen” which died off at around the early 1790s from loss of resource.
It’s said that he bought the land for a cheap price in 1786, and he walked the blood-stained grass for any sign of productivity. What he found, however, was the tribe of Iswen (The country of Iquen is named after this tribe), he talked to them about now owning the land and how he would allow them to stay. They said alright, as long as he didn’t use any of their territory they owned.
It is said that he then built a house for himself and lived there, until his death in 1810.
Legend says that during his time alone, he ordered the destruction of the hideout of war-lands. Others said that he just lived day and night in his home as all other villages were built around him.
Everyone still celebrates every December 10th with an Ice Festival dedicated to his other accomplishments.

Sava Sokol

1761 - 1798

Sava Sokol is the first known official King of Iquen. Taking over in 1783, he crowned himself king of the country, and ruled for 15 years until his assassination in 1798.
Some of his great accomplishments are lots of wins in the Chinese territory, earning him a bunch of more land to settle in, and the making of a church to honor god.
The church still remains today, and you can visit it at the capital of Iquen.

Chang Sun

1793 - 1854

Inventor of the flag for Iquen in 1819.
Inspired by how popular tea was in the country, he decided to make a flag centered around tea, and the colors he choose carefully, each one representing something.
Green: Money and life
White: Simplicity
Purple: Wisdom
Blue: Peace and Integrity.
After showing the flag design to the king, they accepted it as their first official flag of Iquen. The general flag design is still used today, even though it has gone though many changes. The first flag had only a teacup in the center, the 2nd one featured a teapot and a teacup, and the last one changed the color order up a bit to make it seem more ordered.
the county of Iquen treasure this national flag, and you cannot copy the design onto another piece of cloth and hang it on your house. Anyone caught doing so is fined 4,000 and/or goes to jail for a year.
The country of Iquen takes their flag very seriously.

Cwange Grass

1801 - 1869

Inventor for most home designs of Iquen in 1838.
Even though some people still have normal houses like ones in american, most of them have modern homes, either dome shaped or a mix of cubes and spheres. Occasionally, there is a mural painted on the exterior walls of the home. The rest is all white.
How this came to be the house of Iquen is when Cwange Grass designed his own home like the description before, and other people took off of it. This is one of the early cases of modernized housing in the world.
Other features of the modern housing added over time: A lot of windows, blue lighting, and several sky bridges leading to other parts of the house.

The Evolution Age

1818 - 1906

Sara Perlich

1878 - 1963

Inventor of most clothing in Iquen in 1908.
With modern styles inspired by homes of Iquen, these formal clothing usually were white and blue and had one shirt sleeve shorter than the other for any type of jewelry.
For any clothing for occasions, clothing was mostly black and light-blue, and one pant sleeve was shorter than the other to fit on leg bracelets.
Occasionally, a shirt would have soft spikes coming from the top hole to cover the neck.

Cosmo Golias

1930 - 1974

A great friend of Sara Perlich, Cosmo is a Philosopher from Greece who made the “Modernized” Philosophy. It consisted of the acts of Sara and Cwang, this philosophy considered that the way of simple homes, clothes, and life, was the way to go, as they didn’t have to care about so much detail.
Cosmo helped to make more people use modern clothing and housing. Now barely anyone objects the way of a Modernized life.

Maria Thomas

1986 - Present

After migrating to Iquen for an athletic job, she became a professional swimmer. After several years of practice, she became the first swimmer from Iquen to be accepted into the Olympics. After the government heard this, they wanted more of their athletes to join, so they decided to enter in the 2000 Olympics. Maria, coming into the global competition with 23 other teammates as the only swimmer, there was a lot of pressure on her.
And apparently, all of the pressure worked, as she came to win 100m backstroke, and the first gold medal for Iquen.
She was put in the Olympic Hall of Fame a few years later.
