The Republic of Calvard (カルバード共和国(きょうわこく)) is a republic located in western Zemuria, and was founded in S.1090. It is bordered to the southwest by Liberl; to the west by Erebonia and Crossbell; to the northwest by Remiferia; and to the east presumably by Ored. Calvard's head of state is president Samuel Rocksmith.

History

Ruins found in S.1202 confirm that the Ancient Zemurian civilisation originally flourished the territory now known as Calvard.

Republican revolution

Around the year S.1100, the democractic revolutionaries overthrew the ruling monarchy and established the Republic of Calvard. The revolutionaries resorted to a number of illegal activities to carry out their ideology, both prior and after the establishment of the republic. It appears that the celebrity Sheena Dirk played an important role in the shadow of the revolutionary's party.

Around that same time, the Erebonian Empire ceded its easternmost province Crossbell before it was merged with Calvard. Ownership over the province remained disputed, however, and a political compromise was made between Calvard and Erebonia to re-establish the Crossbell Province as an independent state.

In S.1187, the passenger ship Eterna sank in Calvardian waters. On board were Crown Prince Judis von Auslese of Liberl and his wife. They died in the accident, leaving behind a 1-year-old daughter.

Hundred Days War

During the Hundred Days War, Calvard was unable to dispatch forces quickly enough to support Liberl against Erebonia's blitzkrieg tactics. Before Erebonia was able to dispatch reinformations from the empire, other neighbouring countries followed Calvard's example and together with the Royal Army of Liberl they succesfully managed to push back Erebonia.

D∴G Cult

In the second half of the S.1190s, Calvard was caught in a political stalemate with the D∴G Cult: the cult committed a series of violent attacks but the republican government was unable to react because of the cult's possession of intel of high-ranking government officials.

Ultimately, the government resorted to an investigation team with the Bracer Guild at its core to suppress the cult. Under supervision of high-ranking bracers Cassius Bright and Zin Vathek and police investigators Guy Bannings and Arios MacLaine, the investigation team managed to destroy the cult and its lodges in Calvard.

Deteriorating relationship with Erebonia

Calvard's relationship with Erebonia worsened after completion of the orbal railgun cannons at Garrelia Fortress on its easternmost border. After the conflict between Erebonia and Liberl during the Orbal Shutdown Phenomenon, Calvard signed the Non-Agression Pact between the three countries.

In June S.1204, the Imperial Watchtower overlooking Calvard's northern military base was annihilated. Investigation by Thors Military Academy's Class VII revealed that it was actually the work of jaeger drop-outs under supervision of the Imperial Liberation Front. Military conflict was avoided thanks to diplomatism between the Republic and Imperial government.

Conflict with Crossbell

In August that year, President Samuel Rocksmith attended the West Zemuria Trade Conference in Crossbell's brand-new Orchis Tower. On the second day of the summit, on August 31st, a terrorist collaboration between the Imperial Liberation Front and the Republican Anti-Immigration Group. The Heiyue branch had accepted the Republican government's request to suppress the terrorist attack.

On October 24th, Crossbell declares itself as an independent state and freezes all assets of both Calvard and Erebonia. In response, the Republic Army of Calvard coordinates an invasion with the Imperial Army of Erebonia from both sides. Both forces, however, met destruction at the hands of Crossbell's new humanoid weapons, the Aion.

Shrinking superpower

After the Erebonian Civil War and the subsequent Imperial annexation of Crossbell, the Republic Army deploys its airborne military unit to conquer back Crossbell on March 9, S.1205. Its 2nd Area Division, also known as the Armored Aviation Regiment "Canopus", managed to push back the 9th Armored Division of the Imperial Army, but suffered horrible defeat with the arrival of the "Riserva" Panzer Soldat Unit. When the Divine Knight Valimar appeared, the unit withdrew to the outskirts of Altair.

With the Imperial annexation of North Ambria in S.1205/6, the Erebonian Empire had officially become larger than Calvard, inflicting fear among its government. Ouroboros and certain jaegers operate from within Calvard against Erebonia's government.

Geography

Zemuria Map (Official)

Calvard, shrouded in clouds, can be seen on the eastern side of the map.

Calvard is considered one of the two superpowers in Zemuria, the other being Erebonia. After the annexation of North Ambria in S.1205/6, Erebonia took the top position from Calvard as the continent's largest nation.

The border with Liberl on its southwest is guarded by the Wolf Fort, guarded by the Royal Army of Liberl's Border Patrol. The western central border with Crossbell is marked by the Kylo River, Tangram Hills and the Ancient Battlefield. Calvard's northwest borders the Nord Highlands. In between these three, Calvard borders with Erebonia.
