How Olympus Lives On

The Crimson Empire & The Legion ==> Crimson Legion ==> Olympus ==> The Prussian Empire ==> Olympus

Formation

The Nation of Olympus was founded shortly after The Legion and the Crimson Empire announced they would be merging together. Several members left the Crimson Empire, including government officials, to form a new country after arguments and misunderstandings surrounding the merge arose. Olympus was formed on the principles that everyone will have their voice heard, this was the main reason the founders of Olympus left tCE. Because of the circumstances in which Olympus was founded, the leader of the Crimson Empire, Kevanovia, became angry saying he had been "stabbed in the back" by the former tCE members. He at first issued several choices to the members that had left including that they return to tCE with Olympus being disbanded or to pay reparations. The Olympus Government stood strong through this tough time with the full backing of their allies and protectors in GATO. Olympus's protectorate status and friendship with GATO only succeeded to further the anger of Kevanovia due to the not so pleasant relationship between his country and Olympus's new protectors (The Crimson Empire fought GATO in the Crimson War). Despite the cauldron of fire in which Olympus was born the nation began to flourish and prosper, the membership has more than doubled since the country was founded and the tension between Olympus and the Crimson Empire has begun to subside.

Life After the Split

Following their departure from The Crimson Empire, Olympus grew quickly. They pursued diplomatic relations with many countries, including New Sparta, NAAC, and others. Olympus soon signed an MDP with New Sparta, and went on to join the Coalition of Ordered Governments bloc. Their membership in COG led to Olympus' involvement in the African War, and the Second Umbrella War. Following the disbandment of COG, Olympus signed MDPs with New Sparta, ICE, and VOC. Olympus also signed a protectorate treaty with NPE. Their MDP with ICE was cancelled during the short conflict known as Spartans on ICE. Following the conflict and the removal of Kevanovia, the MDP was reinstated.
