Tirol Orthographic.png

Tirol, officially the Free State of Tirol is the smallest nation in continental Ecros. Tirol is bordered to the north by the Glaceis Ocean and to the east by the Serene State of Quebecshire. As of 2021, Tirol has an estimated population of 29 million, making it the second least populous in the world.

The Margraviate of Tirol was established in 1456 following the establishment of the Royal Diet in which the lords of the five Tiroler kingdoms of the pentarchy swore fealty to the Margraves of Innsbruck. Despite civil unrest in the following centuries, the Margraviate remained in union with the autonomy of the lords being eroded throughout until the formation of the Kingdom of Tirol in 1655.
Throughout the next two centuries there were numerous fluctuations in the boundaries of the kingdom. In 1742, the House of Fanes, the original ruling dynasty of the Kingdom paternal line became extinct, the cadet branch, the House of Cerneu inherited the throne, and would hold the position until the abolition of the monarchy in the Constitutional Convention of 1893. In 1890, the Tiroler Civil War began in which Republicans sought to overthrow Kristian II of Tirol. A three year stalemate was broken by the January Mutinee led by Archduke Frederic which resulted in a Republican victory and the establishment of the Free State of Tirol and the abolition of the monarchy in the 1893 Constitution.

The Tiroler economy is largely agricultural, with farming still being the largest sector of employment. Crude oil extraction and precious metals make up the largest proportion of the GDP, with gold in particular accounting for the plurality of the sector, however, a large and mostly untapped hydroelectric resource has been broadly suggested as a green and sustainable resource for exploitation. The official currency of Tirol is the Tiroler Schilling since 1893, when it replaced the Curona (crown).

The Tiroler Ground Forces (Ladin: Forzes Tëra dl Tirol) are the principal land warfare forces of Tirol, a part of the Tiroler Defence Forces. As of 2021, the Tiroler Ground Forces consist of 112,000 personnel total including active and reserve forces.

The modern Tiroler Army traces back to the Republicans at the outset of the Civil War in 1890, though in 1893 the older Royal forces were integrated, hence many elements of the Tiroler Ground Forces date back to 1733, the foundation of the first professional Tiroler Army. Read more...

Selected Biography
Manuel Petre Nöia (born 27 March 1986) is a Tiroler professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper and captains both Lia Naziunela club, CP Innsbruck and the Tirol national team. He is widely regarded as the best goalkeeper in the Lia Naziunela, of most LFE clubs and among the best globally. Nöia has been described as a "sweeper-keeper" because of his playing style and speed when rushing off his line to anticipate opponents, going out of the goalkeeper box. Nöia started his senior career at the CP Innsbruck playing for the 2nd team where following an exceptional two years he was scouted by CP Appan. In 2011, he signed to return to CP Innsbruck for the first team, competing in the Lia Naziunela and has since won 25 trophies, including nine Lia Naziunela titles and two international titles. Following the 2021 Ecros Championship, Nöia became the most capped player in the history of the Tirol national football team. Read more...

Depiction of Republican Forces defending Trentin in 1890.

The Tiroler Civil War was a civil war in Tirol between 1890 and 1893 fought to overthrow the Kingdom of Tirol and depose the House of Cerneu. The war was fought between the Republicans, divided between numerous groups with two central command structures under the Socialists and the Liberals, and the Monarchists who supported the status quo ante bellum under Kristian II. The Socialists were composed primarily of the working classes from the rapidly expanding urban centres of Tirol, they sought the abolition of the monarchy alongside the establishment of a socialist state. The Liberals had prior to the war throughout the 1880s supported the establishment of a constitutional monarchy, however, following the ascension of Kristian to the throne, and the illiberal and absolutist policy that accompanied his reign, the majority, who were primarily middle or upper class joined in advocating the abolition and the establishment of a free state.

In the years before the conflict, Tiroler society had experienced rapid population growth, industrialisation, and the rise of a comprehensive labour movement. The country's political and government systems were in an unstable phase of modernisation which was rapidly reversed with the ascension of the traditionalist Kristian. This combined with an economic downturn driven by high tariffs on Quebecshirite imports exacerbated discontent. Ultimately, on 16th May 1890 the Royal Diet petitioned the King with an ultimatum, demanding final legislative authority on matters of declaration of war, new taxes, tariffs and the judiciary. The King rejected the petition two days later, in a public address declaring it to be a mockery of the ideals Tirol was built upon, subsequently declaring martial law. Violence would first break out in Trënt where attempts to break up a miners' strike would result in the Tiroler Rifles, the commanding Lieutenant later claimed in response to a revolver in the crowd, firing upon the miners killing 12. The working classes of the city stormed the Rifles headquarters in Balsan hanging the local commander Colonel Henric dl Appan from the window of the headquarters and beating the sixteen Rifles garrisoning the building to death.
