The Republic of Miu Wan (more commonly referred to as simply Miu Wan) is a nation in the Northern regions of the New World, it borders the Hibernal Sea to the east and north. The nation is mostly located in a snowy biome.
It is a member of the Federated States of the New World.
The first human settlements in what is now the Republic of Miu Wan were established around 5,000 years ago near the tip of Hok Wan. The only Paleolithic burial that has been found in Miu Wan was in Aima cave in the southeastern areas of the country, dating from about 4000 BC.
A human skeleton known as the Wushang Man dating back to 3,200 years ago was found underneath a track of the Lanark-Laclede Express.
Around 1700 BC what is now referred to as Tongwu Civilisation centralised and became the Kwongpak Kingdom. The first king was Jan Tong whom legend said, descended from the heavens riding a Jade Goat which was sacrificed to the gods after Jan Tong's coronation.
Great Northern Empire
Era of 7 Duchies and 1 Kingdom
The Paklong Kingdom lasted from 809 AD all the way till 1862 AD making it one of the longest lasting monarchies on the MRT.
Long Dynasty ([])
Mong Dynasty (1126-1358)
Sui Dynasty (1359-1421)
Yuet Dynasty (1424-1677)
Bak Dynasty (1683-1862)
In 1854, desperate to modernize, the then-king of the Paklong Kingdom: Chuifa, ordered a group of young intellectuals to travel around the world to learn about the modern world. By the time they came back, one and a half years had passed.
After some negotiations and resistance from members of the royal court such as the Duke of Cha Tin who was opposed to the idea of lessening the king's power, a proper de-facto parliament: the Royal Parliament was formed with the King having limited powers. Most of the seats were made up of independents but the majority belonged to the sole party: the Republican Party. During this time, the king was visibly and mentally aging and made plans for retirement. On June 18th 1859, in a secret meeting with certain individuals, the king made his plan to resign in a few years time. Unfortunately, word spread of the king's desire to resign and many soon saw the opportunity to take power and restore Paklong to its traditional values.
During this time, some delegates from other countries had visited Paklong in order to assist with modernization and the new idea of democracy. They made their own districts to live in which led to some tensions between certain citizens. Tensions boiled when an official from Sedalia accidentally knocked over a priceless vase leading to increased tensions. One of the generals in the Paklong Army: Ng Wah-Chun decided to take over by force. He gathered his followers from the army, government and the masses in order to organize a coup.
On the morning of March 27th 1861, Ng's rebellion began by taking over major parts of Dong Nam Province and declaring the Xing Kingdom. Some institutions in the capital of Miu Wan were also taken over by the rebels. A standoff between the government and the Xing Kingdom lasted 50 days before Ng's rebellion surrendered due to a lack of supplies. Ng was sentenced to death but was lessened to life imprisonment while others were either sentenced to life imprisonment as well or exiled. Chuifa seeing this, decided to make plans to abolish the Paklong Kingdom with the help of the Republican Party.
On September 18th 1862, it was revealed to the public that the Chuifa would not only step down and dissolve the Paklong Kingdom. In its place would be the Republic of Miu Wan: named after the capital. Many were upset by this but the majority were supportive and on the day of governmental transition on April 11th 1863 went with peace in most areas. In the new government, Chuifa was granted his own house in Tintong where he lived out his last years until his death in 1879.
Early Republic Era [1863-1930]
The young government established 3 branches of government: Judicial, Executive and Legislative. The Royal Parliament was renamed to simply the Parliament and modified. All men (and later women in 1870) above the age of 18 were allowed to vote provided they were Miu Wan Citizens.
While the Republican Party had aimed to be the sole party in charge, this soon became impossible as more independents sprung. No political party would come forth until the New People Society emerged in 1872. Despite this, they remained mainly a minor party always outnumbered by the Republican Party. However, they soon not only won the Parliament but also the Presidency in 1887.
The Liberty Party was also formed a few years after the NPS took power and ran on more progressive ideals and policies compared to the other 2 parties. They first won the Presidency in 1893.
Northern War [1930-1935]
Tensions had been growing in the North for a long time with several standoffs occurring such as the Chalxior Incident and the Larkspur Intervention causing geopolitics to worsen. Slowly, the Republic of Miu Wan found itself being forced to choose its allies very carefully. It allied itself with The City of Seoland, the Ottia Islands, Winterville, the City-State of the Chillplains as well as their neighbors to the south: PMW City. On the other side were Creeperville, Antioch, Quiris, Verdantium, Chalxior and Hendon. Some countries like the Lacledic Republic remained neutral.
The incident began when a Hendon squadron clashed with an Ottian patrol leading to Hendon to declare war on them. Soon after, each of their respective allies including Miu Wan joined into the war. During the war, Miu Wan enacted a policy of rations and even conscription but unlike some other countries, it did not suspend elections or civilian government although the president: Qi Ming Au stayed president for the entirety of the war.
While no battles were taken place in Miu Wan, there were clashes on the country's borders and a few battles in the sea. One of the most notable was the Battle of the Hibernal, lasting 8 months and 23 days in 1932 where the Miu Wan Navy with help from their allies engaged in a defensive position against mainly Quiris and Antioch navy ships in the Hibernal Sea. In the end, the enemy ships retreated.
When Chalxior surrendered and promised to remain neutral in 1934, the tide began to change in Miu Wan and their allies' favour. The famous Battle of Harrow on August 18th 1935, now a suburb of Hendon was the last battle of the war. By then, only Hendon, Creeperville and Verdantium were still in the war with Antioch and Quiris having surrendered earlier that year in March. Although fighting was hard on both sides, there was a clear victor as the latter 3 countries surrendered after 2 days of fighting.
Later that year in December, the victors and losers arrived in Seoland to sign the Treaty of Seoland. While Miu Wan was not that much of a major participant in the war, it still got some territories such as most of the present-day Northern Islands Province from Antioch as well as financial compensation. Miu Wan was offered an enclave in Westbeach too but declined due to many in the government not wanting to put money into a small piece of land.
The Rest of the First Half of the 20th Century [1936-1950]
A rise in leftism across the world led to the eventual formation of the Alliance for Socialist Interests in Miu Wan hoping to establish a socialist state or at the very least, implement socialist policies. Many of their policies were soon fought by many even inside the party to be extreme which led the party to pursue a more moderate approach rebranding itself as the Socialist Union in 1943. This allowed the party to gain more votes in parliament although many disagreed creating their own parties that were for the most part, not as successful. For example: the Marxist Party, founded in 1944 by its chairman Dwight Wong Ah Tsui, were nicknamed the “Red Devils” by many and often got into street fights early in its career. Another: the United Syndicalists were founded in 1948 by many that were leaders of local worker union, they changed their name to the Workers Alliance much later in 1983.
Fear of communism and leftist movements in general increased after the People’s Republic of Bahia was founded in 1946. While some leftist parties were not illegal or shunned out, others were shunned out and some even banned such as the Communist Party which got banned in 1947. Contrary to predictions at the time, the Socialist Union rose in power and the ban on leftist movements lifted in 1950, the same year the SU rose to power and took the Presidency.
In addition, both the Republican Party and the New People Society had been declining in power for some time and soon, disbanded in 1950. Many NPS members joined the Liberty Party, Heung Kuk or Kokmanhui while most Republicans either joined the Kokmanhui or ran as independents. Later on, some former Republicans would form the FFP.
Growth in Power and Geopolitics [1951-1999]
In the 1950s, the Socialist Union pursued a policy of "Capitalism with Socialist Characteristics", for example: they introduced several social policies that included a Central Bank and introducing a policy of free healthcare that continues to this day. However, they soon lost popularity after the Ottian Naval Crisis as many didn't want Miu Wan to intervene in so many wars.
Miu Wan intervened in the Bristol War on the side of the Republicans from 1952 to the end of the war in 1955. It provided mainly technological support with fighter jets and artillery. It also provided 3,000 troops and lost 257 men with 891 injuries.
Bahian-Miu Wan diplomatic relations formally resumed in 1968 after disagreements despite the ruling Socialist Union in the 1950s being regarded as too "capitalistic".
The 1970s mainly saw a time of cultural growth with the Kiu Tau movement based in the area of the same name grew as that area was typically an area for the lower and working classes. This movement was present in areas like Literature with author Andrea Zhang publishing her novel: Tinker’s Tale and film director and former actor Markus Tsang directing the cult classic Streetcar Driver. It also affected the 1978 elections with Kinchit Sharma: a politician who was a councilman for Kiu Tau in the 1960s becoming President in a close election.
The Forward First Party was also formed in the 1970s on a campaign of conservativism and traditionalism. In the same decade, the Miu Wan MTR was also constructed as well as the Lanark-Laclede Express.
With growing concerns about the environment in the early 1980s, many Independents and members of smaller parties banded together to form the Democratic Greens. While the party didn’t and hasn’t done very well at a national level, their strengths lied at a local level where they dominated several seats in city, town and provincial councils.
In 1986, after 16 years, the Liberty Party took power with Malinda Tang taking the office of president. She passed several reforms such as the Environmental Protection Act and pursued better relations with the Lacledic Republic forming the Joint Miu Wan-Laclede Treaty. However, an investigation in 1989 found that she had misused public money in paying for expensive renovations to the Presidential House as well as private luxuries such as a Lapis Sunflower Necklace. Thus, the incident came to be known as Lapisgate or Malindagate and a senate trial was soon held. However, Malinda would resign in fear of being impeached on May 18th 1990. Following this, an emergency election was held to replace the office of President. The little-known MP: William Chan Yu Hin from Ho Sai Province soon grew to not only be the leader of his party: the People's Action Party but won in a landslide in the election.
In the aftermath of Lapisgate/Malindagate, the Progressive Party was created by former Liberty Party members who had became disillusioned with the old party establishment as well as a few PAP members.
Contemporary History [2000-Present Day]
In 2002, an outbreak of Swine Flu left the country in lockdown and panic for 27 days. The situation however, would not come under complete control until 2 months later. This led to the economy suffering and various industries taking a big hit such as the tourism and farming industry. New plans were approved to help stimulate them but the farming industry still today, remains less dominant than it was pre-2002.
The 2008 Central City Stock Exchange crisis affected Miu Wan as hundreds became unemployed. Unsurprisingly, the ruling Socialist Union lost favour and many voted at the presidential elections in 2008 for the People’s Action Party placing the former Miu Wan Capital District Mayor Maiko Fong Ka Heung as president.
Miu Wan Pop Music rose to worldwide fame in the 2010s with bands such as D-Galaxy and Ribbon Band becoming household names practically overnight. This led Miu Wan pop music to be dubbed “MPop” with “stans” of these bands often being prevalent on social media.
The video game industry also increased and prospered greatly in the 2010s with two top companies coming up: GammaHouse and QuoDot. While GammaHouse was more famous for RPG and Platformer games such as HuLux and 7th Arch, QuoDot specialised in FPS and Adventure games such as Tower of Hecate and BorderZone.
In 2016, a fire in Luk Chung which left 5 dead and 28 injured led the government to pass more fire safety laws as well as increasing the budget of fire departments nationwide.
While Covid-19 cases were not detected in Miu Wan, it did have to close its borders and only let a certain amount of individuals into the country most of them citizens. Borders have begun to relax although the tourism industry has taken a big hit.
The recent 2020 Presidential Elections were the first elections to introduce Mail-In voting partially due to fears of the Covid-19 Pandemic. They were also the election where the Democratic Greens performed the best with their candidate: Felica Roberts, gaining 22% of the vote. Ultimately, it was the Progressive Party candidate: Adam Tam Tsz Wai winning the election with 53% of the vote.
In Early 2021, tensions between many nations against the State of United Sand (SUS) began to rise, one of the major nations that intervened was the Republic of Miu Wan. The Republic of Miu Wan Air Force patrolled the area around Sand while the Republic of Miu Wan Navy patrolled the waters clashing on occasion with SUS patrol boats. Furthermore, the Republic of Miu Wan signed a pact with the Republic of Northern Peninsula giving them Argyle Island for military usage.
Miu Wan remained neutral in the Boberton Civil War, however, many in the government were inclined to intervene on the side of Boberton against the rebels. This intervention never happened due to concerns about military spending and a reorganized budget.
Officially, Miu Wan is a Constitutional Republic whose Parliament and Presidents are elected democratically. There are two levels of government: National and Provincial. The constitution expressly prohibits provinces from legislating with respect to currency, foreign affairs, defense, telecommunications and international treaties which are handled at a National level.

Miu Wan has a developed market economy with a GDP of about $610.69 Billion in 2021. Originally, Miu Wan relied on Mining and Fishing as well as Agriculture in some small sects. However, this has since changed to be more concentrated on the service sector which now account for over 70% of the country's GDP. Major industries include the production of industrial and transport equipment, finance and tourism.
Miu Wan mostly exports fisheries and textiles, it also exports mining products such as Lapis Lazuli and Gold. Agricultural products like Mutton, Barley and Wheat are also exported. Key Export partners include the Republic of Northern Peninsula, Meridia as well as the Lacledic Republic.
Energy and Water
Miu Wan has transitioned to a more eco-friendly method of producing energy for the country. 40% of the country's energy now comes from Renewable energy, 67% if Nuclear Energy is counted. The main methods of Renewable Energy are Wind Farms and Algae Power Plants. This has made Miu Wan one of the more eco-friendly countries on the MRT. The remaining 33% comes from Coal and Oil plants.
Water supplies are regulated at both a national level and at provincial levels.
Every year on the 18th day of the 5th month according to the Lunar Calendar, Miu Wanians will head to the shores and pour buckets of live fish into the water. This practice has recently, been more regulated with official Government Fish Collecting Stations and Pouring Stations. In addition, the types of fish that may be used as well as the locations have been regulated. This is due to environmental and ethical concerns from groups in and out of Miu Wan.
Like other Chinese speaking states, Miu Wan celebrates the Lunar New Year. However, on the 11th day, it is custom of Miu Wanians regardless of religion, to do grave sweeping at cemeteries.
Miu Wanians celebrate a unique festival known as Xichou Festival which occurs on the 18th Day of the 7th Month of the Lunar Calendar. On this day, Miu Wanians head to temples or shrines and burn effigies of the Evil Deity Xi by throwing his image into the fire. This can be accompanied with chanting as well as a pilgrimage up Kam Shan near Downtown Miu Wan. Furthermore, some will also burn effigies of Yellow Bears as Xi is typically associated with them as told in the Tale of the Golden Bear where Xi disguised as a Yellow Bear attempted to assassinate the Jade Emperor.
As Miu Wan has a large Nansei Guntese minority, certain Nansei Guntese festivals are also recognized as public holidays.
Miu Wan's main and official television broadcaster is HMBC which stands for Hongkongggag-Miu Wan Broadcasting Company founded in 1947. There is also a secondary television broadcaster that being MiuTV that was founded in 1953.
The Capital: Miu Wan has several different transit systems including the Miu Wan MTR and the Miu Wan Monorail. Two local bus systems also serve the city as well as two streetcar and one tram system that are more regional. A short 2 stop automated people mover is located in Central Miu Wan.
Hytown has a tramway system.
Inter-City Domestic Transport
MWR (Miu Wan Railways) currently operates cart rail based Commuter services from Miu Wan to towns in Sut Shan Province though it plans to expand to all of the provinces on the mainland.
Miu Wan has 2 major ferry terminals: one in Smithfield and another in Mortes. The ferry terminal in Mortes connects to Insula Montes as well as the Lanark-Laclede Express. There is also a RaiLinQ station at Starling Bay as well as a Heliport opposite of the station. The Starling Bay area is also home to a AquaLinQ service to Seoland as well as a RaiLinQ connection to Wazamawazi via Lanark and PMW City. There is also a cruise terminal in Hok Wan.
There is an Inter-City Bus Terminal in Luk Hom as well as a Downtown Heliport in Starling Bay.
