Mirurgo is a founding member and leader of the alliance The Rous Union of Minor Powers. Mirurgo started the alliance along with Tundra (inactive) as a group in which new nations could help each other to quickly develop.
Before the civil war, the area now known as Mirurgo was controlled by the Kingdom of Kern. The royalty led the society into the ground due to extremely poor leadership. Eventually, the working people had enough and revolted against the royalty.
During the reign of Giles VI, the people finally snapped, and began a revolution. The first city to revolt was the capital city known at the time as Nonsla. Tens of thousands of people stormed the royal place on the first day. Casualties were high, and over 8 thousand people were slaughtered by the military on the first day.
The Fall of Nonsla
After just over a week of conflict, many of the members military became fed up with the treatment that they were getting from the government. The soldiers were forced to fight for days on end and were not supplied with sufficient food and other resources. This led to mutinies in the army. The army joined the people in the revolution. The combined forces easily overpowered the few soldiers still defending the royal palace, and took it 4 months after fighting started. Soldiers were sent inside and found that the royal family was inside in a safe room. The people decided to lock all entrances and exits to the palace and burn it to the ground. Everyone inside burnt alive.
After this, the people took Nonsla, and set up a new government in the ashes. This new government was what became modern-day Mirurgo. The Kingdom of Kern moved its capital to Myran. The parliament building, Nonslet, was built on top of the royal palace.
The success of the revolution sparked many revolutions similar in other major cities across the nation. The new government provided military support, and the other cities fell in quick succession.
