Timeline

History:

The Ionian Conurbation SMP was founded on 12 June 2015 with Quiris, Heights City and BirchView, with the goal of becoming a significant economic and military influence in the MRT.

Woodsdale is accepted into the conurbation, becoming the fourth founding city although it was not present during the original founding.

Over 3 years, the conurbation has grown in size to become one of the largest SMPs in the MRT.

Ever since the SMP rule was abolished, the Ionian Conurbation continues functioning as an autonomous region.

The Ionian accepts Weston into the conurbation, replacing BirchView as a founding city. BirchView becomes a member state.

The Ionian joins the Zeta Republic as a whole region, with many diplomatic ties with the other member cities.

On the upcoming merger of the Zeta Republic and the Republic of Epsilon, Springwood is accepted as a member state on probation.

The Ionian Conurbation officially joins the Republic of Epsilon in full on the 21st of February 2020.

Future Goals:

It is the goal of the SMP to become the largest private entity on the MRT to have economic relations and interconnectivity with cities all over the MRT.
