Which European Monarchy/Imperial Countryball Are You?
Prussiaball can be best described as the first major centralized power within the Germanic regions, spanning from present day Estonia to Western France. The encompassing empire left the majority of Europe in shock at its valued military and strong monarchy - which endorsed traditional values of royal families - while still allowing elections for various legislatures. Being the centralized power for the Germanic Confederacy, allowed for Prussia to become the most powerful German nation amongst the rest of central Europe.
The Ottomans were defined as ruthless and extensive, spanning a fair amount of the Balkans and Southeastern Europe during their existence. The Ottomans were based in Turkey and were determined by the Monarchy which maintained the Muslim caliphate for nearly 623 years, in total. The expansion of the Turkish Ottomans ranged from Rumania of southern Europe to the Suez Canal of Egypt, pushing through present day Syria and Iraq, before stopping at Georgia. Politically traditional in nearly all aspects, the expansion and growth of the empire was astonishing and allowed for its recognition as a European power, as well as an invader in the 1600's before being pushed out by Polish and German crusaders and hussars in the following campaigns.
The French Empire was one of Europe's most expansive powers, right next to the British, gaining each other mixed feelings and several differing centuries of war and plundering. France has varied over the many differing centuries, from its progressive mentality and its political theories. While formerly a Monarchy, elections and forms of Republics were implemented, allowing for France to be one of the first to emerge from the traditional ruling principles of Monarchy. Experiencing many eras of growth and success and many of failure, France has been seen as the power behind many ideals which America could reference to, seeing members like Montesquieu as sources of respectability. Setting the stones in place for financial success with Lassaiz Faire economics and providing intellectual havens for its time, France was a definitive example of a Westernized nation, in glory.
Britain has been referred to by many as the "Empire Where the Sun Never Sets," for good reason. Having expanded across the Afro-Asian continents, Britain maintained its Empire through a mixture of economic value and military strength. Colonial in nature and imperial in drive, the British were one of the most economically enabled powers in Europe. While expansive, Britain was not ignorant and maintained dealings and trades with foreign nations, keeping good affairs and even settling its conflicts with France. Politically changing from its former Monarchy to a much more publicly accepted government, Republics were established and the Houses of Commons and Lords were enabled, providing British rule with more voice. While still maintaining their figureheads of royalty, parliamentary systems also spiked other colonies, like America, to endorse similar methods.
Austria and Hungary were once unified in an agreement, which allowed for a Dual State to emerge. Each country had its own separate cabinet and parliament, maintaining a union of convenience and for power. The unified nations provided bulk for the majority of the Southern European continent, stopping at Serbia and spanning into Ukraine. Politically a dual monarchy and separate, but unified, the state lagged behind most other Empires in economics and growth. The state grew to become a railing central for Western and Eastern European powers to use and with regard to their Italian associations down South, maintained good relations with Prussia in its later years, signing an alliance with Italy and Prussia in the late 1800's. Troubled with its unifications - determining which regions should be under the charge of which ethnic culture, Austria-Hungary challenged itself numerous times with these as the dual monarchy differed at times and appeals.
Russia was one of the largest empires to span across two continents as a whole single nation, compared to Britain who had scattered colonies across the world. Lasting approximately two full centuries and ending abruptly in the civil war to end almost all of Russia's former glory in 1918, made Russia a growing but also lacking demographic to the European face. Being held together by vassal states and under the single command of a traditional Monarchy, one of the few in Europe by the turn of the century, gave Imperial Russia a mixture of bad internal communication with its populace and good international relations with its allies overseas, Britain and France. While lacking industrialization, the empire managed to be one of the largest empires to culminate its large armies, which successfully ended the Ottoman's expanse and control in the late 1800's. Having on and off relationships with Prussia and Austria-Hungary, made Russia a mixed partner in trade and politics with international affairs for Central Europe.
Serbia has many differing politics and a long history of disagreeing with its neighbors and itself over matters. Being the triggering mechanism for the Great War, Serbia's violent nature was held together as political representatives in Serbia changed during coups in 1903, after assassinations of Alexander I and his family allowed for newer political members to assemble under the Serbian flag - Peter I being one of them. Close relations with different nations, ranging from Russia to France, cost Serbia its relations with Austria-Hungary allowing for differing relations to fester and bloom. Serbia being nearly destroyed several times between 1918 to 1922 in a series of Balkan based wars, as well as being annexed by Austria-Hungary, Prussia, and Bulgaria in 1915 - before being reclaimed by Serbian troops and expanding its kingdom in 1918 with other Slavic kingdoms in the area.
A formal government in 1913, the Albanians experienced their first sense of freedom from the former Ottomans as an independent state, before being consumed by chaos in 1914. Experiencing radical changes, held together by provisional regional governments - rather than a single unified bodily government - caused distress as single cities were either defended or held together through local insurgents and consistently evacuating forces, such as the Serbians, through to Greece. This lack of government quickly disassembled it, in 1918, when Greece, Italy, Serbia, and France occupied and expanded their borders into Albania.
The small and ignored nation of Greece was allowed its own identity when the Ottoman's unleashed a lot of their territories in the Balkan regions of Europe. The Greek royalty was a short lived one, which cost Greece its identity, ending its royalty in 1924, to then be replaced with a Hellenistic Republic. This short lived government also was reintroduced in the 1930's but was quickly abolished in 1973, leading to civil war. The Greek kingdom lagged badly, compared to most other states and was sucked into a series of wars, ranging from the Balkan Wars to the Second World War. Sadly, Greece was never exceptionally astounding with its ruling and remained poor, being passed from empire to empire before being allowed temporary autonomy.
Italy was formally declared independent by King Emmanuel II of Sardinia. Following legal matters and negotiations, Prussia and Italy retained close relations, while simultaneously becoming enemies with Austria-Hungary and waging war. Gaining territories within Austria-Hungary fell to Italy, after 1866 as well as spawning several oversea colonies in Africa. Italy maintained strong relations with Prussia and the Germanic confederacy held around Prussia, but was opposed to (if not violent repulsed by) Austria-Hungary seeing their hold on Italian land in the Southwestern territories above them as solely Italian territory. The political demographic of Italy was primarily held onto by Monarchy - but this was quickly changed to a figurehead status and replaced with a Prime Minister, until 1922, when Benito Mussolini changed the political positions of Italy to totalitarian authority. This allowed for Italian Monarchy to remain, but also as a figurehead and by 1943 the Italian kingdom was discontinued by Allied invasions.
Spain had grown extensively over the following centuries, before losing territories overseas in the New World, ironically being the first to invade and the last to lose colonies to local populations. Expansionistic like Britain but unable to maintain similar economic gains as local populations rebelled against Spain - eventually causing losses in nearly all of its colonies. Monarchy was maintained in Spain, as parliaments were introduced into Spanish authority before being overthrown by Francisco Franco and replaced with an authoritarian totalitarian regime which remained until his death in 1975.
