The First Kingdom of Gjorka was founded in 640 A.D following the union of the Kingdom of Jor and Kingdom of Gior. The First Kingdom was the first government to unify the whole of Gjorka and lasted until 725 A.D. The First Kingdom was succeeded by a Second and Third Kingdom. However, by the Third Kingdom the Monarchy had grown significantly corrupt and greedy. The ruiling monarch, Quintin III, tried to challenge the powerful Merchant class of Gjorka resulting in the First Gjorkan Civil War. Following the Merchant victory in the civil war, the First Gjorkan Republic was established and monarchism left Gjorka. The First Republic faced many challenges including the feuding between the ruling Merchant class and working Commoner class. Following the victory of a Pro-Commoner party in the 1850 election, the High Court of Gjorka banned the Commoners and dissolved the legislature. Eventually after 70 years of judicial tyranny and economic collapse resulted in the Second Gjorkan Civil War where Revolutionaries tried to overthrow the government. They succeeded resulting in the Second Gjorkan Republic, however the Revolutionary military had taken over the government resulting in a military dictatorship. Following a long resistance, the military dictatorship was dissolved in the Second Blue Revolution and democracy restored to Gjorka with the Third Gjorkan Republic. However, this new republic was unstable and collapsed following the corrupt presidency of Rick Milhous. Thus leading to the founding of the current Federation of Gjorka.
