Labuepé, officially the Democratic Republic of Labuepé (La Jahurdiki Demokratik de Labuepé) is a country located in southeastern Alvenia. It is bordered to the north by the Callid, and to the east by the Atrucian Ocean. It is a member of The Leftist Assembly.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Labuepé comes from a conjunction of the two Labuepé'ée words La and Buepé (lit. "The People").

History[edit | edit source]

Ancient Tribal Settlements[edit | edit source]

In the 600s, the Labuepé'ée race would have a strong chiefdom government with many settlements along a tropical coastal region. The Labuepé'ée were slightly more technologically advanced and had much more settlements than their only neighbor tribe and rivals, the Deshakans, however, the Deshakans were much more strong in war. The two tribes would have very frequent skirmishes between the years of ~600-905 that wouldn't achieve anything but casualties on both sides. However, mysteriously, the Deshakans would start less and less battles between Labuepé'ée and Deshakan warriors until 905 when all attacks had stopped.

War of Deshaka[edit | edit source]

In the year 910, Chief Ytsumafubo of Deshaka would force all young men from every Deshakan settlement to fight the Labuepé’ée. The Deshakans would use a surprise attack on a large settlement named Ehkirdé, that was farther away from the coast, where the main settlements were. This settlement’s very strong defenses had been penetrated very fast by the attacking Deshakans, and did heavy casualties to the very small warrior presence there. Within two days, the entire village of Ehkirdé would be captured and levelled. Chief Kalkoumbérhtoumé of Labuepé wouldn’t hear about this until a week after the settlement was destroyed. The Deshakans would go on to brutally attack other settlements, including the 2nd biggest and most important settlement, Ferhkimi, which due to the already large warrior presence there, was able to hold off the Deshakans until reinforcements arrived. After 3 brief years of intense fighting, the Labuepé’ée would successfully push them back very far, behind a mountain deep in the jungle. The very brief war would end in 913, however there were heavy casualties for the Labuepé’ée which were extremely difficult to recover from.

De-Ibnnaiyzsaiid Rule[edit | edit source]

De-Ibnnaiyzsaiid Invasion[edit | edit source]

The Zarabaiidist Empire of De-Ibnnaiyzsaiid was going through a territorial expansion starting in 917. Their most successful expansion was heading north following the coastline. They would stumble upon the Labuepé’ée, and took advantage of their weak state by burning two settlements and conquering every other settlement owned by the Labuepé’ée, and would force the Labuepé’ée to convert to Zarabaiidism. The Ibnnaiyzsaiidans would introduce steel weaponry to the Labuepé’ée, and many Labuepé’ée would become soldiers and aid the territorial expansion.

De-Ibnnaiyzsaiid Civil War[edit | edit source]

In 1245, a civil war was caused by island territories owned by De-Ibnnaiyzsaiid rebelling and attacking the mainland territory. This civil war lasted for 16 long years, until De-Ibnnaiyzsaiid finally fell in 1261. The Labuepé’ée had always fought for De-Ibnnaiyzsaiid, even when Labuepé’ée territory was captured, until the two last years of the war, when they would start fighting against De-Ibnnaiyzsaiid.

Period of the Many Civil Wars[edit | edit source]

The period after the civil war would be marked with many uneventful civil wars and many power changes, the following is a brief list of every kingdom that the Labuepé’ée territory had belonged to.

  1. Al-Jamehmez (1261-1293)
  2. Al-Jamehmez Monarchy (1293-1362)
  3. Itlovic Dynasty (1362-1434)
  4. Jyahklatovalia (1434-1450)
  5. Itlovicia (1450-1520)
  6. Jyahklatovalia (1520-1589)

Early Modern Self Rule[edit | edit source]

Labuepé'ée Revolution of 1586[edit | edit source]

The, at this point, very large Labuepé’ée population, hadn’t felt like they belonged to Jyahklatovalia for a few decades, and this all added up to a revolt that would happen in 1586, which many were sympathetic, which helped their revolution. Gaulle Muhrazaini would lead this revolution. The Jyahklatovalians didn’t have very many soldiers in the region, which made the revolution even easier. By 1589, they had captured so much land, that the Jyahklatovalians and Labuepé’ées would stop fighting eachother. Muhrazaini became the king of Labuepé and would live until the age of 87, dying in 1635. Gaulle Muhrazaini II, the second king, would form an alliance with Jyahklatovalia in 1637.

In 1702, King Muhrazaini III would convert to Muhrazainism, a very fast growing religion centred around Gaulle Muhrazaini I. During the late 17th and very early 18th century, Traditional Labuepé’ée Language and Culture would come back, as well as the Ahmaric and Latin Labuepé’ée writing systems being perfected, and Labuepé’ée soldiers were being trained to use muskets, which had been provided to them by the Jyahklatovalians.

Colonial Rule and Labuepé'ée Coup[edit | edit source]

In 1719, Callid would dominate every territory near Labuepé very quickly with tactics better than what armies in the area could handle, and would come for the Labuepé’ée just a year later. They would take their entire territory within just a few months, and King Muhrazaini III and his son, Muhrazaini IV, would be imprisoned for 3 years until being released to be normal citizens. After Labuepé’ée and all other surrounding territories were conquered in 1721, it would all be lead by Louis Freudenberger until 1781, when a coup lead by General Bembowvowe Litokqkobémwvéwvébé III had managed to kill Freudenberger, but his position of power was quickly replaced by George Weiss. This didn’t stop them. Weiss would be forced to flee from Labuepé in 1782. They would fight the Callid for 3 years, until 1784, when they had finally driven Callid out of their colonised area, and had caused Callid to surrender. Immediately after, a civil war would break out, which was the original Labuepé’ée and Jyahklatovalians against every other territory that had been invaded. It took 10 years for this civil war to end, which resulted in a victory for the Labuepé.

Late Modern Self Rule[edit | edit source]

In 1804, A presidency was established, with Muhrazaini Litokqkobémwvéwvébé becoming the first president, and a law would be created to only let the president serve 5 years per term, and the 1st Constitution would be written.

In 1917, the presidency would be abolished after the 22nd president, Amanuel Nakayené would turn the government into a parliament at the end of his term, making him the last president. There would be 3 years of instability in Labuepé until the parliament had been successfully implemented, the 2nd constitution being written, and the first Prime Minister being Muhrazaini Lakalé of the Conservative Party, and the first Deputy Prime Minister being Amanuel Nakayené of the Democratic Party.

Contemporary History[edit | edit source]

Jyahklatovalian Civil Rights Movement[edit | edit source]

During the mid 1940s, discrimination towards Jyahklatovalian peoples would be worsened as the many prime ministers would mostly refuse to give Jyahklatovalians specific protections and rights, especially the 31st Prime Minister Muhrazaini Ejiguwagayé's public stance against people of Jyahklatovalian descent. In 1956, a democratic party prime minister would be elected, which had not happened for 16 years. 40th Prime Minister Epraham Mohammad Tabor would attempt to reverse many of the discriminatory policies enforced by previous prime ministers, and was re-elected, claiming that on this term, he would be able to finalize the fixing of all these issues. However, as most became more aware on Tabor very centrist stance, and his want to only slightly lessen the extremity of such policies, many Jyahklatovalians and Jyahklatovalian sympathisers would vote for more seats on the green party, which helped green party leader Amanuel Jovanović win, who was a Jyahklatovalian himself. He had quickly reversed many policies. Jovanović was able to convince the public to vote for more seats for the green party, however he was not elected as party leader the next year. The 46th Parliament, lead by a coalition of the Communist, Green, and Democratic Parties, were able to officially establish the Jyahklatovalian Nationalist Party on March 3rd, 1963. On that week, many Jyahklatovalians would form in the streets of Labuepémiji in celebration, which would cause chaos within the city. The Jyahklatovalian Nationalist Party was able to serve the parliament for the first time in the 1964 election.

1971 Economic Recession[edit | edit source]

In the late 60s, there was an economic boom. In 1969, a coalition between the Socialist, Communist, and Democratic parties would form, and would stay together for a few years. In August 1971, the 54th Prime Minister Kaleb Oromo of the Socialist party would announce the official switch to socialism, after the parliament had near unanimously approved it. After two days, the economy had crashed and would start to go through a severe recession. This would last for 4 years, until Labuepé would experience a extreme economic boom, even larger than the previous one.

'Golden Years of Labuepé'[edit | edit source]

Between the late 80s and early 2000s, there would be a large economic boom and a time where sports and contemporary Labuepé'ée culture was at a peak. 82nd Prime Minister Mesay Finhas dubbing it 'The Golden Years of Labuepé'. A lot of music, films, and art would be produced during this time, as well as Football having a major rise in popularity after the LMT would be founded in 1990. Labuepé'ée technology would also experience rapid scientific and technological advancements, which intensified after the 'Golden Years' are generally said to have been ended.

Deshakan Oil Controversy[edit | edit source]

Main Article: Deshakan Oil Controversy

There is a large amount of oil in Sinéhlanhla county which was found in 1990. This oil has caused a very large controversy on if it should be extracted or not. The Sinéhlanhla rainforest is a very old, and very healthy rainforest, and many don't want it to be removed for lumber and oil, while others want it to be extracted due to how it could improve the economy.

Prime Minister Habibi Bogalé of the Conservative Party had attempted to lessen the restrictions which made it illegal to extract most of this oil. Bogalé attempted to do this until he retired in 1993. In 2000, Prime Minister Mekonen Selassie II had passed more general restrictions on extraction of materials, and President of Deshaka Senzangakona Qweba MusawéNkosi had passed very strict restrictions on oil extraction in the Deshakan Provincial Assembly. In 2016, Deputy Prime Minister Miimii Mébreté managed to pass a legislation that greatly lessened restrictions on the extraction of materials from protected areas. When this referendum was presented to the public voting population, 67% of the voters voted against it, which caused it to lose. In 2020, Conservative party leader Kaleb Yosef Amha attempted to pass the same legislation again in parliament, however 85% had voted no, 10% voted yes, and 5% abstained, which caused it to fail immediately.

Culture[edit | edit source]

Literature[edit | edit source]

Music[edit | edit source]

Music in Labuepé is varied due to the different cultures that can be found within each province. Traditional Labuepé'ée music is very different around Labuepé, however, they do share many similarities.

Traditional Labuepé'ée music, generally known as Bolakibuetapéyatik, is a type of music that has been present in Labuepé culture since the 8th century, however, it's more modern form became present around the 15th century. Bolakibuetapéyatik music that includes only one instrument often uses deperdehjés or bouyouti lyres. Bolakibueptapéyatik music when including multiple instruments, will usually use bouyouti lyres, tulé'alalas, and septé'alala flutes. It is also very common to include either a deperdehjé or two deperbembandés. Bolakibuetapéyatik will always include vocals, which are usually cheerful. The lyrics are usually about Labuepé'ée people, however, are not limited to this. Bolakibuetapéyatik music has always been popular throughout Labuepé'ée history, and has remained relatively unnaffected by Jyahklatovalian culture during the time it was under Jyahklatovalian rule. A famous Bolakibuetapéyatik music piece is "Labuepé" by Muhrazaini "Akmedemu" de-al-Wakéyobedelé, which is played only using a deperdehjé and was made in 1921, is said to be the de facto national anthem.

Traditional Jyahklatovalian music is extremely varied, but usually comprises of Labuepé'ée bouyouti lyres, jaclatovalyra lyres, harfuganas, and many other instruments. The emotion in such music would usually be extreme, with the music expressing either great sadness, great passion, great anger, or any extreme emotion. Traditional Jyahklatovalian music can be played with just a lyre, but most famous music is organized with many instruments. A famous music piece in the Jyahklatovalian style is "Sve, B1" by Amanuel Adané-Nedeljković, is an abstract music piece that has an unclear meaning. Many myths surrounds it, but the Jyahklatovalian Nationalist Party uses it as it's official national anthem.

There are many popular types of modern music in Labuepé. The most popular types are Rock, BAEJ, Hip-Hop/Rap, Muhrazainist music/Bolakibuetapéyatikreggae, Pop, and Jazz.

BAEJ and Rock are more popular in southern Labuepé, inside the Jyahklatovalia Province. Hip-Hop and Rap are popular in most large cities, and along the northern coast of Labuepé. Jazz and Pop is generally popular everywhere. Bolakibuetapéyatikreggae is popular all over Labuepé, because it is a religious genre that represents Muhrazainism.

Visual Arts[edit | edit source]

Early Ancient Labuepé'ées loved to create figurines. There have been an extremely large amount of figurines that have been unearthed in the Labuepé-Nitui Province. Most of these figurines share many similarities. All of the figurines found in the Labuepé-Nitui Area were made out of fired clay, and were usually of warriors, many had unique faces. Many were also depicting what appeared to be infants. Early ones were estimated to be created between the years of 200-500. Later Figurines, which were created during the time when Labuepé'ée settlements became large and unified, had much more attention to detail, and were more varied in what they depicted.

During the time when settlements were large and unified, Labuepé'ées would make pottery much more artful, however this only happened in larger settlements which could afford to sacrifice practicality. Labuepé'ée people were limited to earthenware until the De-Ibnnaiyzsaiid Empire introduced Stoneware to them, which helped them create even more artful pottery. Labuepé'ée Frescoes would also start appearing under De-Ibbnaiyzsaiid rule.

In the last period of Jyahklatovalian rule, many oil paintings would be painted by Labuepé'ée people using Jyahklatovalian styles. Fahtimah Pagrebejustouloé, and Abebédragan Rufaelé were two famous oil painters from Labuepé, who created unique paintings that branched off of the Jyahklatovalian style. Yafébojyan Živković, commonly known as Yafébojyan the Cultured, was a Jyahklatovalian-Labuepé'ée artist who had made very unique still life paintings using watercolour, which was not widespread at the time. Yafébojyan had also created many Oil paintings in his later life that depicted the civil war between Jyahklatovalia and Labuepé. In 1591, he left Labuepé to live in Igorigrad, and only made still life oil paintings during the last years of his life.

In the early 20th century, statues and photography were becoming very popular. Kidané Bazin and Alémayehu Bazin were two brothers who made very controversial art, which many didn't even consider as art at the time. Alémayehu Bazin created abstract figurines and sculptures, while Kidané Bazin would photograph either that, or random scenes. Their art has been put in many museums in the late 20th century.

Later contemparary art is extremely varied, however, is still dominated by oil painting, watercolour, realism, photography. The information age has expanded the art of Labuepé.

Sport[edit | edit source]

Association football and Basketball are unarguably the most popular sports in Labuepé. The National Football League (LMT) is the most popular and only officially recognized football league in Labuepé, and the National Basketball League (LKMT/LKT) is the most popular basketball league in Labuepé. Both leagues have many millions of fans all around Labuepé. Most Labuepé'ée people have an interest in both of these sports.

There is a large focus on national pride and identity in Labuepé'ée sports, which is why there is a lot of public interest in the official national football team and national basketball team. The Labuepé national basketball team is one of the greatest basketball teams in the world, however, it is not subject to any national sports federation's rules, currently.

In late 2020, the national football team would enter the IAFF.
