The founding of the city The city was founded in 6th century well not really a city but a small farming village called pertoc. It was founded by a number of migrating tribesmen who settled in the region after having attacked the previous inhabitants of the area. The village was merely comprised of a number of fishermen and farmers on the coast backed up by a few craftsmen who serviced he village needs. The village continued into the 10th century simply each harvest collecting their harvest and catches. Merely working from farming year to farming year and very little else. It was finally during the 10th century that the village was conquered by the kingdom of Mizate. Mizate had originally been one tribe but under a new leader king lykake they united over a dozen tribes under their banner and then with their new power they grew for over 100 years before they reached the village perloc (pronunciation had changed slightly over the centuries) they then conquered it and all of the area containing it and a about ten villages to one of their best generals who had conquered countess lands. He then gae it to one of his lieutenants a man who lacked ambition or any real skill. The village continued the same way they ever knew they had just living of substience merely paying taxes now to a far away place where they had never been to.
Growth of the village to a city
It was under his grandson of the first ruler of perloc an individual who wished to leave his name in the history. So he decided that the small fishing boat site could be turned into port named after him, grealoc. This was while he did not realize one of the most ingenious idea's ever as what had barely occurred to him. He could see that the fishery was very deep water and was protected by vast walls. It was a large basin which would even to the modern era serve as a capable harbor. He fist needed to secure the resources to make a harbor and he traveled to the capital of Mizate where he managed to convince the court to invest resources in a new port. A large force of people were drafted from all over the kingdom to come to perlon to start construction work. 20 years later even after the death of grealoc it was finished. It was named grealoc harbor and after the first foreign traders started to come it would start to become a trading port and the markets grew in size doubling the towns size. After Mizate coastal regions were raided the monarchy commissioned a fleet to defend itself and see and perlon was decided it would be home to the new fleet. The new influx of sailors and naval services tripled the towns size. The town grew year by year especially after the loss of the fleet of akor where the king personally decided to make a real serious battle fleet. He expanded the docks and while doubling the size of the fleet increased the town size even more as it became a focal point and trading tripled as more merchants came in to the enlarged docks.
The city grew in size for 300 years until early 14th century when the city had 90,000 people. It had ships coming in several times a day, the markets were large and bustling all daylight and the city had a very large number of craftsmen. It was now the largest city in Mizate although due to the feudal system and its workings the city never became any more important or powerful it remained a small village in name. They were still run by a low level lord. This easily angered the 14,000 inhabitants who thought themselves far more important. It finally came to a head during 1335. After the death of the earl of kricster his son took over and in a territorial dispute with his neighbor the duke of laip an ally of the city of person was invaded the earl was a childhood freind of the king and the king while had not intended to give his friend the territory he allowed him to carry out his own personal war. The duke denounced the king and the earl declaring he would not follow them. The king sent a very self-centered envoy who rather untactfully demanded that the duke reaffirm his oath of loyalty to the king in front of the duke's men or he would be crushed by the the king's power. The duke who refused to back down in front of his vassals as this would be a grave embarrassment told the envoy that he would reaffirm his loyalty when the king told the earl to halt his campaign of illegal war. The envoy said that either he swore an oath now on the spot or he would be declaring rebellion (he did not have the authority to demand this and the duke knew that). The duke rather than ignoring him and sending him back with his demand to stop this fight the duke declared that he would not follow the king and that he would fight all those who followed the king. The envoy returned back rather hastily and exxagerated the events claiming that the duke pulled a sword on him and the envoy reported that he had never made any demand and the duke had threatened him for no reason. The king called his banners and prepared for war. It was at this time that a message from a Mizate capital a far off land came to person. The city was ordered to raise a rally of troops, funds and food and it was said that the force would be treated as a small area force and so would come under the command of an individual who's sum of all other forces would be a of the forces from person. This angered the people and they demanded that they at least be made into their own army due to the fact that they were far larger than many full armies. Though feudal law was clear it would be treated as an insignificant force. The people of person refused to contribute to the war until it was given its own army command. The region's lord said that if an army was not assembled and set up in a manner which pleased the feudal system they would be treated as secessionists and defeated. Person did raise an army but not to fiht the duke of laip but to fight the people of Mizate. The king of Mizate fearing a kingdom wide rebellion ordered that they both be crushed.
Civil war Person's army sent their force under a sellsword vaid the vanquisher. He had fought since he was 16 and he was now 58. He was one of the most experienced fighters in the world he inevitably did cost a fortune. The army was comprised of mainly Person guardsmen and a few sellswords. The army had very few Calvary and mainly infantry. The armies prime goal was to delay any attack and keep Mizate forces away from the city. They marched straight through the region's force as most of them were away fighting in laip.
The forces in laip were not doing so well they were fighting heavily on 2 side in the disputed area next to kricster and another border with a region which also bordered the person theater of war. Laip forces were outnumbered and would not last long. The only reason they managed to survive were that the people of person took out a large loan with a foreign kingdom who agreed to provide grain and iron weapons as person knew that laip while they shared no common interests they understood the ancient prover 'my enemies enemies is my friend' and so helped them out. The deal was that they would provide this support for 3 years. This allowed the duke to mobilize an additional 10% of his population and arm them better with a number of weapons. With the new and better armed forces the duke attacked the overconfident forces and managed to push them back on the kircster front.
The earl grew rather concerned and petitioned the king for reinforcements. The king backed his friend and ordered more rallies to be assembled and then sent to the kircster front. This angered other commanders especially the count of qual who neighbored 2 war zones. The new rallies began to make an impact and the vanguard of a new force drove back laip forces but a second force under the earl supposedly got lost and missed any action ensuring his forces suffered no casualties. There was a large argument over this as many argued that the earl was a coward and others argued that the new rallies had lost to many men for what most claimed was a simple task.
Seeing that laip were still struggling the people of Person ordered a further attack up until this point they had been merely raiding enemy territory and they had only advanced to the river ip and the forests of pick as they were easier positions to defend against small attacks. Though the forces of person walked across a sized bridge and marched their rally towards qual territory.

The city is a capitalist dictatorship. It is at the top ruled by the Protector who is head of the military overall and some civilian aspects. He is selected by the council of Protectors. Upon his resignation due to ill health or death a new Protector is selected. The council is made up of 3 groups. The party rank and file, the senior party members and their corporate advisers who for a yearly fee to the party may be part of that group. To be elected the Protector you must have the support of 2 of the 3 groups. In the event that you have 3 candidates each controlling one group, each group must list their second choice and whoever has 2 out of 3 there becomes party leader. In the event of a further deadlock the senior party members choice is made Protector.
Members of the senior party group:
Chairman: The Chairman is responsible for the running of the party itself.
Minster of Finance: Head of the Financial balance of the country.
Minster of Security: Head of the emergency services and a civilian.
Minster of Army: Head of the ground forces and a solider.
Minster of Shipping: Head of the naval fleet and the countries ports and maritime activities. Can be a solider or civilian but normally a solider.
Minster of Ariel: Head of the air force and responsible for air traffic control. Normally a solider but can be a civilian.
Minster of Education: Head of both the education and the media censorship teams as well as general information to the public.
Minster of Infrastructure: Normally an engineer but can be a civilian administrator and is responsible for transportation and energy.
Minster of Welfare: Responsible for the small welfare system, health and all other liberal things.
These 9 men select their candidate by run-offs.
Corporate advisers: For a yearly fee of 5,000,00 a year a company may purchase a charter allowing it to join this group of the party. This also gives them access to the information and special judicial privileges. They elect their candidate in a single open ballot vote.
Party members: Anyone with a government job and on the payroll of the party is a member of this and they elect their candidate in run off.
The Protector is then responsible for the running of the nation with the aid of the senior members of the party. He also upon his arrival appoints the Chief executioner. While in this modern era the the Chief executioner is not personally the executioner he is responsible for the judicial system in civilian courts with the military courts run by Minster of Ariel. The Chief executioner while cannot have his own or a judges decision reversed he may be replaced at will so the Protector always get his way. The Minsters themselves are not appointed or fired by the protector but sourced from within their own ministry and although the Protector cannot remove them if the Minsters vote that they are not confident in a particular Minsters ability the Ministry they come from must source a replacement.
There is also an elected body called Parliament which comprises of 20 members selected by proportional representation. Though the system is largely rigged by the Protector with most decisions never amounting to anything and the people kept down. While all citizens are entitled to vote who the citizens vote for and who is elected are not the same. The current hold is the National United Person party currently holds 8 seats and is in a coalition with the Liberal Alliance who has 4. Normally once every few years the Parliament is allowed to block a bill or make their own one but this is done as a symbolic gesture by the Protector with this just done to remind the people that they think they have power.

The military is nothing remarkable with high spending at 5% of GDP spent on the army another 2.5% on the air force and 1.5%. The army employs 40,000 professional soldiers and officers full time 80,000 soldiers and officer as reservists The army spends most of its budget on the upkeep of the pay of its forces. Money spent of equipment and it's matinee is moderate but takes up maybe a quarter of the budget with the rest going to pay and supplies.
The air force is a small one and the only more offensively oriented of the services. It contains a small number of ageing planes and newer recent helicopters. The air force is all based within the country but there have been deployments abroad with the start of the Miras pacification.
The navy is the smallest of the branches and while generally well organized is a very small organization designed for policing and controlling their own waters.
That is the TOE for my armed forces.
