The Fourth Rijk Empire, or simply "Uvalor", "Rijkas", or "the Rijk State", is a country located in The South Pacific. With a canon population of around 3.85 million people, the Rijk state is pretty sparce for it's size. The largest and most important city to the country is Uval, hence where it got it's name. Uval is the country's capital, and the far colony of Brasa (formerly Brasilistan) is under Rijk control. The port of Uval is one of largest trading hubs.
The country is famous for it's golden beaches and snow mountains. On average, the tempurature of the country can get to 0°C for most of the year, and on occasion can get up to 10°C.
The Rijk State is a pretty old country, dating back to 1505. For almost three centuries, the country was a monarchy. That was until 1808, when a demoratic uprising happened. For the next few centuries, the Rijks would go from Democratic Republic to Autocratic Socialist Dictatorship to Autocratic Communist Dictatorship, and finally resting at a Luthorist Capitalist Autocracy in August 2021.
The Rijk State carries right-leaning libertarianism, with policies such as a drug ban, divorce ban, same-sex marriage, polygamy, and a smoking prohibition.
In 1336, a native empire invaded the Rijk Tribes and took them prisoner. They stayed under this rule for nearly two centuries.
In 1503, the remainder of the Rijk peoples began to "protest" against the native government. This would continue for about 2 years until 1505, when the Rijks decided that independence was the only option for survival.
On April 1, 1505, a declaration of independence was drafted and signed, and the Rijk people broke away from the empire. Shortly after independence, the previous "lords" began an attempt of a Rijk invasion. Several battles would take place during this time, such as the Battle of Pencsa, Battle of Blue Ridge, and Operation Gulf. After about 5 years of fighting, the Rijks came out victorious following the Nuevona Siege, and the native empire surrendered.
After the Treaty of Uval (1511), Uvalor was proclaimed and recognized as a free nation.
