Creeperopolis, officially the Holy Traditionalist Empire of Creeperopolis (Creeperian SpanishCreeperian: Սանտո Իմպերիո Տրադիծիոնալիստա դե Ծրեեպերոպօլիս; Creeperian Spanish – Iberic: Santo Imperio Tradicionalista de Creeperopólis), is the largest nation on Sur and the 5th largest in the world by land area. Creeperopolis is bordered to the north by the Directorial Republic of Cospania, to the south by the Republic of Sequoyah and the Senvarian Sea, to the west by the Sea of Castilliano, the Kingdom of Salisford, and the Principality of El Salvador, and to the east by the Bay of Salvador and the Southern Ocean. Creeperopolis completely enclaves the client state and religious nation, artificially established by Creeperopolis, known officially as the State of the Church. Creeperopolis' capital and largest city is San Salvador located near the center of the country along the southern coast of Lake San Salvador and west of Lake Zapatista. As of 2020, Creeperopolis has a population of 532 million, making it the most populous nation in the world.

The earliest origin of a Creeperian civilization is the Proto-Creeperian civilization which existed in modern-day northeastern Creeperopolis. Its earliest dates put its formation at around 1650BC, and during its existence, various city-states and small kingdoms coexisted and often warred with each other for dominance and power. The civilization ended in 250BC following the eruption of the Chicxulub volcano. The Creeperian Confederation was formed in 220BC as an alliance of the seven largest tribes of the Proto-Creeperian civilization, and following the War of Creeperian Unification, the seven tribes were united for form the Old Kingdom of Creeperopolis in 537AD by Felipe I. The Old Kingdom was conquered and destroyed by the Caliphate of Deltino in 745AD by Caliph Abdul I bin Abu Kharzan. In the Old Kingdom's place, the Emirate of Rabadsun was established as a client state to the Deltinian Caliphate under the puppet rule of the descendants of the brother of Fidel II, Rudulifu I. One of Rudulifu I's descendants, Alfawnasu III declared independence for Creeperopolis on 8 February 1231 initiating the 114 year long Creeperian Crusade. The kingdom was ruled by Alfonso I under an absolute monarchy, justified with divine right and the approval of Pope Gregorio XI. The absolute monarchy came to an end in 1565 when the First Parliament of Creeperopolis was established following the tyrannical reign of Miguel V which prominantly featured the Honduran Genocide in 1535. Following a failed attempt to restore the monarchy by King Carlos III, the Republic of Creeperopolis was established, but it was soon abolished following a peoples' revolution which reestablished the monarchy under Adolfo II. Adolfo II's son and successor, Manuel III, overthrew the Parliament in 1771 and later declared himself Emperor in 1778 reestablishing the absolute monarchy. Shortly after his death, a 7 year-long war of succession raged in Creeperopolis from 1783 to 1790 between two rival brothers of the House of Martínez, Manuel and Salvador, both of whom were sons of Manuel III. Manuel IV was victorious, but the Creeperian Revolution of 14 June 1833 saw Salvador III's grandson overthrow and kill Manuel IV, becoming Adolfo III. The Emperors succeeding Adolfo III were relatively short lived and inefficient due to the establishment of a Second Parliament in 1887. From 1877 to 1933, the Creeperian Conservative Coalition and the People's Social Coalition struggled eith each other for control of the Parliament leading to violence such as the 1912–13 Creeperian Protests, the Reigns of Terrors, Christmas Putsch, San Pedro Incident, and the Crisis of 1928. The Creeperian Civil War errupted in 1933 between the Catholic Imperial Restoration Council, known as the Romerists, and the National Council for Peace and Order, known as the Miguelists, effectively ending the Parliament. The deadliest war in Creeperian history was marked by war crimes, massacres, terrors such as the Red and White Terrors, and even genocide. The war ended in 1949, and Romero I of the Romerists would eventually be canonized as a saint in the Creeperian Catholic Church by Pope Juan Pablo II as a martyr in 1987. Creeperopolis is a founding of the Terraconserva Council of Nations. Currently, Alexander II rules as Emperor, rising to power following the 2003 Creeperian coup d'état which deposed Alfonso VI and the Alfonsisto. Creeperopolis has been ruled by the Nationalist Creeperian Catholic Royal Initiative and the Pro-Fatherland Front of Unification (IRCCN y la'FPPU) since 1949.

The Creeperian economy used to be heavily reliant on coffee but is now reliant on aircraft manufacturing, textiles, sugarcane and coffee, fruit, coal and iron exports, and oil refinery, making it the world's second largest economy at ₡94.4 trillion colóns, second only to Quebecshire.[note 1] The country continues to struggle with massive wealth inequality, rampant crime and crime rates, four ongoing internal armed conflicts, rampant government and corporate corruption, and unprecedented poverty rates of 20–25%. The official currency of Creeperopolis is the Creeperian Colón and it has been since the relinquishment of the Creeperian Dollar following the 2003 Creeperian coup d'état. Creeperopolis has been commonly called terms such as a dictatorship, fascist, totalitarian, police state, and banana state, many of which have varying degrees of accuracy.

Etymology

The name Creeperopolis has its origins in the name the people native to the region gave it during the period of the Creeperian Civilization. The people called their land the Land of the Creeperans, known in Pre-Old Creeperian as Cuēpieopoxūeta and spelt ցուէպիեոպոխուետա. The origin of the name Creeperans is unknown but it has been theorized to mean "River People" in reference to the Xichūtepa River which was the primary source of water for the civilization.

During the period of the Emirate of Rabadsun, the territory controlled by the Creeperans was limited to the city of Rabadsun and its immediate surrounding areas, effectively making the emirate a city-state. During this period, the Creeperans of the city referred to the city as "Creeperopolis" or "City of the Creeperans" and overtime, the name stuck and was never changed, even when Rabadsun declared itself a kingdom and conquered the Caliphate of Deltino. King Alfonso I declared the name of the kingdom "Creeperopolis" and the kingdom continued to use the name up to the present day. There have been efforts in the past to rename the county and remove the –opolis suffix, but those efforts have failed, with some alternatives proposed being Creeperia, or alternatively spelt Creperia, Creeperopólis Mayor (Greater Creeperopolis), and Crerío.

History

Prehistoric

Excavation of prehistoric archeological site in San Romero.

The earliest evidence of human habitation in what is modern day Creeperopolis is dated to around 10,000 BC in the modern day department of San Romero. Archeological sites dating from 10,000BC to 1650BC, which have been categorized as Prehistoric-Creeperian, have found human remains, the remains of animals, preserved homes and tools, and remnants of cave art. Among the animal remains discovered at the various sites were those of domesticated mammals and extinct reptiles. The majority of the sites were found by accident in the 1990s and 2000s.

Around 3500BC, an event known as the Prehistoric-Creeperian Diaspora occurred where Prehistoric Creeperans migrated out of modern-day San Romero. Groups of Prehistoric Creeperans migrated south into modern-day southern Creeperopolis and making it all the way to modern-day Sequoyah. The descendants of these migrants include the Castillianans, Senvarians, and Sequoyans. Another group migrated east at around the same time, traveling by boat and eventually reached the modern-day San Carlos Islands. The descendants of these migrants include the Atlántidans and the Native San Carlos Islanders.

Proto-Creeperian civilization

In 1650BC, the Prehistoric Creeperans that remained in modern-day San Romero organized themselves into city-state-like communities. The reason for the change in lifestyle and governance is unknown, as there is no evidence for wars or natural events around the time of the change, but from 1650BC, city-states and kingdoms arose in the area, and the period of time from 1650BC to 250BC is known as the Proto-Creeperian civilization. The first such kingdom was the Kingdom of Xichūtepa which existed from 1650BC to its fall in 1578BC.

Ruins of a Cuscatlán settlement.

The largest kingdom which arose was the Kingdom of Cuscatlán which existed from 1580BC until it was fractured in 867BC following a civil war and rebellion. During the existence of the kingdom, a significant rise in population was recorded, but around 1100BC, a drastic decrease in population was recorded in Cuscatlán tablets which was attributed to "invaders from the south." Historians are unable to explain who said "invaders from the south" could possibly be, as there is no archeological evidence to prove for certain who invaded north into Cuscatlán, but nonetheless, the invaders did not succeed, or at least completely, as the Kingdom of Cuscatlán continued existence.

The Chicxulub volcano caldera lake.

In 250BC, the Proto-Creeperian civilization came to an end following the eruption of the Chicxulub volcano. The plinian eruption ranked level 7, or super-colossal, on the Volcanic Explosively Index, completely destroyed the volcano. An estimated 50 cubic millas (32 cubic miles; 133 cubic kilometers) of ash were ejected into the atmosphere and the immediate surrounding area was buried under a blanket of ash 50 pies (45 feet; 14 meters) deep.

The eruption caused widespread famines across the Proto-Creeperian civilization and ruined weather patterns globally. Tens to hundreds of thousands died as a direct result of the eruption. Little is known about the thirty year period from 250BC to 220BC due to extremely poor record keeping, but historians have hypothesized that one by one, the tribes of the Proto-Creeperian civilization either died out or merged, forming seven major distinct tribal groups. The most notable effect of the eruption outside of modern-day Creeperopolis is the famines that were caused in modern-day Greater Sacramento, most notably in Iberia, where many Iberian Tribes died out. As a direct result, the Romanyans were able to grow in power, and by 180BC, the Iberian Tribes were conquered and the Romanyan Empire was formed.

Creeperian Confederation

The symbols of the seven tribes.

In 220BC, the seven major surviving tribes of the Proto-Creeperian civilization formed a loose military alliance: the Creeperian Confederation, which was self-referred to as the "Land of the Creeperans" by the seven tribes. The tribes were the Amacha, the Chīhueta, the Iloqutzi, the Imnoqueti, the Llohechue, the Tzachu, and the Xuhuetī. The confederation had its capital in the city of Xichūtepa, which was also the capital of the Chīhueta Tribe. Each tribe had its own leader, but one person was selected to be the collective leader of all the tribes, called the Kuaitl Tlatoani or Head Chief. The first Head Chief of the Creeperian Confederation was Machtītin I, who is commonly cited as the founder of the city of Xichūtepa and of the entire confederation in general.

In 200BC, Machtītin I commissioned one of the most ambitious construction projects in ancient history, the construction of the Great Pyramid of Xichūtepa. Machtītin I died two years into its construction in 198BC, but his son and successor, Machtītin II, continued construction of the pyramid.

During the construction of the pyramid, the resources of the confederation were strained. The confederation had a process of selecting its Kuaitl Tlatoani, which was having an election between the seven tribes and selecting one of the tribes' eighteen-year-old sons of the current leader of the tribes, who fathered at least one son every year for this exact reason. In 161BC, the Iloqutzi Tribe under its leader, Yaotl, started a revolt in an effort to gain independence from the confederation. Yaotl's forces were defeated in the Battle of Xolotlan in May 161BC, but his forces continued resistance. Confederation forces under Machtītin II dealt a decisive defeat against Yaotl's forces in August 161BC in the Battle of Otompan. Yaotl died in battle, and his son and successor, also named Yaotl, was forced to agree to permanently bar his tribe from future contention for the title of Kuaitl Tlatoani, but his tribe could still have a say in the electoral process.

When Machtītin II died in 160BC, construction was continued by Matzio I, but he died shortly afterwards in 156BC, and his successor, Catzlōche I, completed the pyramid in 145BC. The pyramid was 200 pies (180 feet; 55 meters) tall and had a base perimeter of 1,620 pies (1,480 feet; 400 meters) by 1,620 pies (1,480 feet; 400 meters). Upon completion, the pyramid became the largest pyramid in the world by volume and surface area covered, even topping the Pyramids of Hashan, but the two largest Hashan pyramids remain taller than the pyramid at Xichūtepa. The pyramid was the largest and tallest structure on Sur when it was completed. During the existence of the Creeperian Confederation, the pyramid was referred to as the "Rise of the Head Chief."

In 153BC, Catzlōche I began a war against the Atlántidan Tribes on the Atlántidan Peninsula after several years of raids against lands controlled by the Amacha Tribe. The Atlántidans began raiding Amacha territory for food and cattle and even slaves around 170BC during the construction of the pyramid, and its construction prevented the confederation from diverting resources to halt the Atlántidan raids. Defense was left solely to local Amacha soldiers and peasants. The most notable Atlántidan raid was the Sack of Tecuauh of 155BC where the city of Tecuauh, the capital of the Amacha, was raided and pillaged with around 20% of its inhabitants being killed and another 10% being enslaved. Amacha leader Phālihuep was killed during the attack on the city.

Catzlōche I and Amacha leader Xotonal commanded around 2,000 warriors east into the Atlántidan Peninsula. The Atlántidan Tribes, who have since formed the Atlántidan Confederacy in 154BC, rallied their own warriors, around 1,000, to defend their territory. During the Creeperian march east, villages were pillaged and looted and many Atlántidans were enslaved by the Creeperans. The Atlántidans, lead by Cahualan, established a defensive position near the village of Acatepec. In the ensuing battle, Atlántidan forces were decimated by the Creeperans. According to Creeperian accounts, "every single Atlántidan was slain and beheaded," while Atlántidan forces mention nothing of the battle. Sometime after when the battle occurred, the Atlántidan Confederacy was dissolved and several of the Atlántidan Tribes began paying tribute to the Amacha. Around 3,000 Atlántidans were enslaved during and after the war, and several of them were sacrificed on the Great Pyramid of Xichūtepa over the following ten years.

Catzlōche I enacted a welfare policy known as the Imakaka in Sentli, translated as the the Giving of the Maize, in 139BC in Xichūtepa. The policy gave the poorest 30% of peasants in Xichūtepa and the surrounding area maize free of charge, cutting out their largest expense in an effort to help them raise themselves out of poverty. The Imakaka in Sentli is considered the first welfare system in Creeperian history. The system remained in effect continuously, with a notable absence from 533AD to 537AD during a civil war, until 745AD. Catzlōche I died in 130BC and was succeeded by Chepīn I of the Imnoqueti Tribe. Chepīn I continued the Imakaka in Sentli, and in 120BC, he increased the range of those eligible from the poorest 30% to the poorest 35%.

In late-111BC, Lucius Paullus, the Governor of Cospania, a province of the Romanyan Empire, ordered for an expedition to be made south, across the mountain range now known as the Creeperian Range, to conquer new territories for the province of Cospania and for the empire. The expeditionary force composed of three Romanyan Legions, the XV Legion, the XVI Legion, and the XVII Legion. The XV Legion, the lead legion, was commanded by Quinctilius Varus, a career soldier born in 160BC in the Romanyan province of Hispania. The XVI Legion was commanded by Marcus Caelius, a career soldier born in 150BC in the province of Cospania. The XVII Legion was commanded by Servilius Geminus, a career soldier born in 156BC in the province of Cospania. Each held the rank of legate.

The expedition began in May 110BC. The march across the mountain range took three months and the legions reached the other side in late-July 110BC. The Romanyans were unaware of the political situation on the other side of the mountains and assumed that the area was just inhabited by unorganized tribes. The Romanyans arrived in territory controlled by the Iloqutzi Tribe and members of the tribe notified tribal leadership. Ohtli, the leader of the tribe, contacted Chepīn I and Matzio, the leader of the Tzachu Tribe, to send reinforcements to repel the Romanyan foreigners. Each tribe sent their tribal militias, each numbering around 4,000 men, for a total of 12,000 men, to combat the Romanyans, who outnumbered them significantly as they weilded 21,000 men, or 7,000 per legion. Chepīn I was given command of the militias as he was the leader of the confederation.

By the time the Creeperian tribes had organized, the Romanyans had reached the Xichūtepa River and entered territory held by the Imnoqueti Tribe. Chepīn I had received reports that the Romanyans had destroyed three Imnoqueti villages and that reinforcements were badly needed, but there is little to no evidence to support these reports and they are now interpreted to have been exaggerations or entirely falsified as to provoke a quicker response from the tribal militias. Chepīn I, Ohtli, and Matzio devised a plan to eliminate the Romanyan threat. They planned to lure them into a weak defensive position in a long marching column near the river and to attack them from one side and force them into the river, where men on the other side of the river would force them to stay in the river, and eventually drown. They scrapped the plan, as they received further reports about the size of the army, which was claimed to be around 10,000. They instead opted to simply attack from both sides, as they believed the army was much smaller than theirs and a direct attack from both sides would eliminate the Romanyans quicker.

As the Romanyans were marching east in September 110BC, the tribal militias were in position for the attack. The Romanyans were marching in a column along a road near the river. Chepīn I had his soldiers stationed on the Romanyan left, as did half of Ohtli's soldiers. The other half of Ohtli's soldiers and the entirety of Matzio's soldiers were on the Romanyan right. As the Romanyans were about to pass Ohtli's soldiers, they were ordered to attack and they pushed into the Romanyan column. Eventually, the entire Creeperian line pushed into the marching Romanyans. The Romanyans were caught completely off guard, and they attempted to quickly form into battle formations, but the narrow road they were on and the proximity of the Creeperian attack prevented them from doing so. The Romanyan line was also very thin, and many were killed in the attack. Varus ordered an immediate withdrawal to a clearing where he planned to engage in battle, as did Caelius and Geminus.

Geminus' soldiers were at the back of the column when the withdrawal order was given. He and 1,000 soldiers managed to escape the Creeperian attack and withdrew to the clearing where they planned to continue the battle. The remainder of his soldiers and the soldiers of Varus and Caelius were unable to escape the slaughter, and were trapped by the Creeperans. After hours of fighting, Geminus was able to see that the entire army had been defeated. Geminus had his army camp in the clearing for the night and sent scouts the following day to survey the area where the battle occurred. They reported that 17,000 men had been slain and that 3,000 had been taken prisoner. They also reported that 5,000 of those killed were executed by the Creeperans and had their heads impaled on sticks and placed on the sides of the roads. They returned the body of Caelius but stated that they were unable to find the body of Varus and stated that they believed that he was killed in battle and that his men dumped his body into the river as to prevent it from falling into Creeperian hands, though their claim had nothing to support it.

Geminus withdrew his men after negotiations with the Creeperans, and when Geminus returned to Cospania in December 110BC, he informed Paullus of the estimated casualties of the legions. The Creeperans celebrated the victory against the Romanyans, and had 100 of those they enslaved sacrificed in Xichūtepa in January 109BC. The remaining Romanyans worked as slaves for the rest of their lives, with the last slaves dying in the 70s BC. The eagle standards were kept in the temple at Xichūtepa. The Creeperans claimed that they had executed both Varus and Caelius as recounted in surviving texts from the confederation. The claims conflict with those of the Romanyans, which stated that both were killed in battle. Historians have speculated that Varus likely was executed by the Creeperans as his body was never recovered by the Romanyans and that Caelius was killed in battle as the Romanyans had recovered his body and that his head was not severed when it was recovered. The battle immortalized Chepīn I as a hero to Creeperian nationalists.

Biodiversity

The Golden Eagle is the national bird of Creeperopolis.
A soldier using a flamethrower to eradicate a mosquito colony during the La'Solución Final.

Creeperopolis is home to many species of tropical birds, mammals, reptiles, fish, and insects, several of which are endangered species.

The national bird of Creeperopolis is the Golden Eagle (Creeperian Spanish: Águila Oro). The Golden Eagle is common in Creeperian culture, being the nickname for the FC Adolfosburg fútbol team of the National Football Association and being featured in the fourth verse of the former national anthem of Creeperopolis, Himno Nacional Creeperiano, from 1565 to 1729 and again from 1730 to 1845. The lyrics state that the Golden Eagle will fly higher than the Deltinian Condor, the national bird of the Deltinian people.

Creeperian Spanish lyrics Translation
CUARTA ESTROFA
Recostada en'el ande soberbio,
De dos mares’al ruido sonoro,
Vajo el ala de grana y de oro
Te adormeces del Águila Oro.
La’Águila Oro que buela en los’cielos,
Paladión que proteje su suelo;
𝄆 ¡Ojalá que remonte su buelo,
Más que'l Cóndor Deltiniano! 𝄇
Yen sus alas levante hasta’l Cielo,
¡Creeperopólis sos inmortal!
FOURTH VERSE
Lying upon the proud Ande,
Of the two oceans, hearing its noise,
Under the gold and crimson red wing
Of the Golden Eagle, you will become entranced.
The Golden Eagle who flies in your skies
Is the protector of your soil;
𝄆 May it fly high,
Higher than the Deltinian Condor! 𝄇
And on its wings it will rise up to Heaven,
Creeperopolis you are immortal!

Beginning in March 2020, the Creeperian government began an operation called La'Solución Final, an effort to eradicate mosquitos.[1]

Creeperopolis has a population of 532 million people as of 2020, compared to 508 million from 2010. Creeperopolis' population has increased by 5–8% every ten years since 1950 due to high fertility rates. During the Creeperian Civil War, Creeperopolis lost 7.01% of its population due to the war and genocides such as De-Catholization, terrors such as the Red and Terrors, and massacres such as the Denshire Massacre. In total, 40 million people died but accounting for births, the country only experienced a net loss of 20 million people. From the 1950s to 2000s, Creeperopolis' population rapidly grew but has relatively slown down since 2000 due to the modernization of the country during the 1990s to present.

Most of Creeperopolis' population lives in urbanized areas, however, a considerable amount still live in rural areas.

A notable minority of 740,000 Quebecshirites live in Puerto Francisco, Salvador. Formerly called Port François, the settlement was sold and established in 1417 as a Quebecshirite trading post. It was occupied in 1611 during the Quebecshirite Civil War to prevent the colony falling into Republican hands and to ensure the Monarchists retain control. The colony was formally returned to Creeperopolis in 1624 by the Quebecshirite National Reorganization Council. The first Creeperian passport was issued to allow travel between Creeperopolis and Port François in 1417.
