From the Author

History
 
East
-Jonguria'shistory is one of political organization which stretches much further into thepast than that of Adjuria
-WhileAdjuria has historically been a group of contending fiefdoms battling forsupremacy of the region with each other, Jonguria has enjoyed relative peaceunder a unified central government
-Traditionally,Jonguria has been unified over the whole continent, with a strong centralgovernment, usually located in the north, and special administrative regionsset up to better locally administer government to the different areas
-For most ofits long history, the capital city has been in the province of Laojing
- During much of the historythere have been 4 administrative regions to ease the task of governing
-These areLaojing in the northeast, Pu'lao in the northwest, Pudong in the south, andXimen in the far west along the land bridge to Adjuria
 
- The central government islocated in Laojing and has as its head an emperor who rules for life.
-The titleof emperor will pass down to the eldest son upon the emperor's death
-This systemhas worked well for generations, although at some points in the historydifferent families have successfully claimed the imperial throne.
- The current imperial familyhas ruled for 136 years. 
-They cameto power after a peasant uprising following several years of devastating floodswhich left the majority of peasants without homes or land to cultivate.
-Because ofthe inaction of the then ruling emperor, a well-to-do peasant family was ableto marshal the forces of the discontented into a sizable military force,invading Laojing
-The emperorwas bloodily disposed, and the peasant family took hold of the government.  Many years of prosperity followed.
- A devastating war betweenEast and West occurred 78 years ago
-This warwas fought when provinces in Adjuria decided to expand their territory pastIthmia and into Ximen.
-Severalbloody battles were fought along the Isthmus, with no clear gains on eitherside.
-After 10years a peace was established
-Terms ofthe peace specified that travel would be greatly restricted to those of Adjuriawishing to travel in Jonguria
-Trade,which had been plentiful before the war, was seriously curtailed.
-Only twotrade avenues were allowed to remain open.
-One for seashipments to the island of Nanbo along the southern coast of Pudong
-The otherwas a land route through the Isthmus into a treaty city in Ximen
-Trade wouldbe one-way, as in Adjuria would bring the goods on their ships and caravans,and Jonguria would then load those empty vessels with return goods.
-Jonguriaprohibited all of its people from going to Adjuria upon pain of death
- Following the East-West war,there were devastating earthquakes in the province of Pudong and horrendousforest fires in Pu'lao
-The emperorsoon found opposition to his rule, as the peasants viewed natural disasters asa sign that the emperor was losing his mandate to rule.
-Severalpeasant uprisings occurred in these provinces, but were ruthlessly put down bythe emperor with a great loss of life to the peasants.
-An uneasypeace was established, but many peasants were left with bitter memories.
-Rebelgroups formed out of the discontented peasants, and secured bases of power inall 4 provinces.  They would usuallyemploy hit-and-run tactics to disrupt the imperial government, but didn't havethe strength for an all-out rebellion
-It wasevident the imperial family would have to rule with an iron fist to stay inpower
