The Bonnermann Empireis a fictional state in the Adventure Time spin-off. It is a large empire which is situated in the Novoasian continent. It is a federal empire. At 14,745,070 km² (5,693,103 mi2) of land, it is often considered as one of the largest empires in history. It is mostly gained not because of conquest, but through years of exploration and colonization. It is also a home to approximately 240 million humans as of now, most with mixed ancestry. Having lots of land, it spans seven time zones and incorporates a wide range of environments and landforms.
The empire itself started as a small remnant of the former Reich Freistaat, one of the remnants of the former European Federation. Although it was a strong and powerful state at the present, it still suffered and experienced hardships to be a dominant world power in the present Ooo timeline.
"Bonnermannia" is often known as the "Reich" in German and formally the Realm in the English language.
Pre-war years (2090-circa. 2165)Edit
The First State, which was called Europa Freistaat (European Free State), was founded and ruled by Sir Hans Bonnermann throughout the Mushroom War.The state consists of remnants of the Fourth Reich, specifically Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, and parts of Western Poland. Initially, it was formed when Germany was liberated by rebels who were under the command of Hans. Most of the rebels were Bundeswehr rebels and numerous Don and Kuban Cossack deserters who defected from Russian military to the state, due to their loyalty to Hans, because one of the Cossack commanders were Hans best friends during the war.After the successful detonation of H-891, an ionized hydrogen bomb that was used by Federation forces to destroy the secret hideout of the last remnants of the Grand Coalition that was located somewhere beneath the Marianas Trench. They believed that detonation of this war will bring an end to the war and will restore peace throughout the world. However, the force of the bomb was too powerful that it almost destroyed the Earth.
Meanwhile, the neutralised Russian research team and their top-secret ultimate weapon, Project 872, a very large portal which can allow a anyone to travel across different dimensions, It was considered by many scientists at that time as huge breakthrough in science and technology. However, when the bomb was detonated beneath the Coalition base deep in the ocean, the portal broke down and malfunctioned. However, the uncontrollable gravity pull of the earth caused all of the dimensions or the worlds to converge with the Earth, The scientists call this phenomenon the "реинкарнация" or "reincarnation", stating it was a period of massive changes which will cause the world to reincarnate in the future with a new form.
Due to the high destructive force of the bomb, it caused a huge crater to be formed on the outer surface of the Earth, as it was appeared today.
Luckily, the state survived during the war and endured it because veteran, pre-war engineers with assistance from scientists managed to build an underground system of houses, schools, which were built 12 kilometers below ground level to avoid radiation from nuclear fallout. The project and the underground city was called the "Untergang." But sadly, this wasn't enough. After the war, the whole world was covered in darkness, due to the Earth adjusting to its new inhabitants which came out from the portal, or fighting the nuclear fallout which came from the H-891 ion bomb. This made scavenging for food impossible. But some scientists and botanists developed a way to allow them to plant plants underground, where sunlight wasn't present. To solve that, they instead used "fake sunlight", or sunlight that is coming from an special source of light, the photobulb.
Their long stays in the underground city lasted for months, even years. But in a decade, the dark skies were gone, but the world was lifeless. Cities, the former remnants of the war, were destroyed and all was left were the pillars of elevated highways, some tall buildings, airplanes that were crashed during the war, and ships that were either stayed in docks or scuttled offshore. Even though everything was hopeless, Hans' son, Gustav had nothing to fear. The 2 million survivors of the war set off to migrate to the Land of Hope, in Novoasia. Gustav believed that the land was sacred and he urged everyone to emigrate to these lands.
The survivors first left the land in 2150 A.D. The journey itself was long, deadly and hazardous. Gustav himself, was confident that they will reach there if they will follow him and be brave. They walk continuously, about 30-75km per week depending on the weather, conditions, and the terrain. It was the beginning of the first phase: the Arduous March.
Finding food or setting up camps was impossible sometimes, when the weather was bad, or crossing enemy territory. But sometimes, they encounter dozens of survivors on their way. The time taken to reach their destination was two to five years. The survivors were only about 1,200,000 people, or 1/2 of the original population.
Their first and largest settlement was widely known as Cheshin (Ceshin) due to its similar appearance to the modern-day city and Germany's capital, Berlin many years after its foundation.
Bonnermann Kingdom (2150-2200)Edit
The kingdom announced its foundation after Gustav's arrival on Hope Hill in December 19, 2150. At this time, the kingdom was still on its way to prosperity. The first constitution of the Empire paved way for progress and its promised hope for its people. Gustav also stated that the people of the kingdom should stay steadfast and loyal to everyone and to offer their lives for the sake of others, in order to make their dreams of a better life true, by showing service to the people and the Kingdom.
Twenty years later, the Kingdom got larger as a lot of people settled in other parts of the continent. On June 18, 2172, Gustav passed away due to tuberculosis. However in this moment, it was only a small step forward for mankind as it rose from the ashes years ago from the dreaded dark ages. It will only take such hardship and determination to oneself and to others to make Hans' dream a reality.
Alex the Great and Gustav II - the Civil War (2200-2245)Edit
The civil war was caused due to a dispute between Gustav II, the current King between Alex the Great, which was a popular general in the Empire. Alex earned his support to the people by serving them humbly. However, Gustav did not tolerate this and due to his jealousy, he ordered his officials to find a way to assassinate Alex. After numerous attempts of unsuccessfully killing him, they managed to find a way to kill him, and that is through an illegal coup against the current regime. Because of many hard-liners which supported Alex's ideas, the king was overthrown and was executed by a firing squad five months prior to his imprisonment.
As a result, the state became more leaned to more nationalist and conservative ideas than it was ever before. It sparked and renewed interest in the study of the long-lost ideas of communism by notable scholars who named themselves and more well-known as the "Vanguard". However, they didn't last for long, since secret police agents managed to kidnap them, alongside with numerous intellectuals with the same or related goals to free the state, in order to preserve the stability in the kingdom. These series of purges started out by the state on a massive scale sometime later, was later named as "Days of the Long Arms" due to the long guns which the police uses to execute "those who did not follow the King's will."
Even though the state controlled the rumors and managed to cover up the true cause of Gustav's death, it was soon revealed after Bedenken's liberalization reforms.
Dawn of the Empire (2250-2300)Edit
George Bedenken was a popular politician in the Empire who initiated reforms throughout the state. He was also the nation's first Prime Minister, after the Kingdom's constitution has been changed.
The Golden Age of the Empire (2300-2550)Edit
The empire’s highest point, or its highest extent in history, was recorded back in the so-called “Golden Ages” of the Empire, which was signified and symbolized by high profits from trading, advancements in technology, the maintenance of a very stable government, very high standard of living and most of all, its prestige and power which it can wield to all of the nations in the world. As a result of this, many people under its banner have received balanced rights and freedom which they can’t even have in their former rulers. As a result, many people during those times had become so dependent on the state itself, even to the point that they will become responsible of the outcomes of their actions, no matter how good or bad it is.
Decline of the Empire (2550-2749) Edit
The sudden decline of the empire was caused by widespread disorganization of the army due the Empire's sudden expansion, the increasing power of the noblemen and clergymen over the government, and the growing strength and support of the Caliphates in some of the empire's colonies. Widespread civil disorder further culminated in a violent "Peasants' War" in the state. All of this happened during Emperor Kolberg's reign. Kolberg was very infamous due to his lavish mansions and his extravagant life, while ignoring his service to the state as its emperor. while the whole empire was instead ruled by a poor Prime Minister.
Fall of the Empire(2750-present)Edit
Throughout the 28th century and to the present, the empire has undergone a severe "fall", which was signified by the reduced powers of the government due to times of corruption, civil wars among the people, and economic struggles. allowing the independence of various unrecognized ethnic groups in the poor-governed Outer Provinces of the Empire, and uncontrolled civil unrest throughout the Inner Region, the most vital part of the empire. Aware of the trouble, the government has decided to put the country under martial law.
In 2832, the empire collapsed in an event called the "Final Struggle" in the main city square of Ceshin. It was a final military standoff between the Bonnermannian Streitkräfte (ground forces) and the militant groups causing disorder in the Empire. After days of fighting, the Imperial forces were defeated after executing a final military charge. The Bonnermannian monarchy was forced to step down and to be forced to meet the demands of the people. A temporary provisional government was installed, in preparation for the establishment of a free republic.
However, increasing power of conservatives had led to a coup led by the hard-liners and soon, the country was placed again in a military dictatorship.
According to the 3rd Constitution, the country is a parliamentary dictatorship and a federal empire.
The empire itself didn't even encountered any civilised states, except a few tribes whose creatures are mutated from the war, with the exception of Howard, who had believed to have been discovered Ooo but the state was still uncertain about the fate of the expedition and its crew.
The Bonnermann Empire has a large and a rich history of warfare since its foundation, and its traditions are still being practice despite of the modernization plans by the present rule of Nicholas Suderland. Because of its close proximity to the Caliphates, it maintained a huge military force which lacked morale and strength, due to the present economical situation, and the lack of more competent generals. Decades after the last, devastating defeat with the Golden Horde, the Empire lost its military might and influence throughout the region. The whole army is called the Grande Armee and it is composed of the following:
- Streitkräfte (Ground Forces)
- Luftstreitkräfte (Air Forces)
- Grande Marine (Grand Navy)
Furthermore, the whole army was composed of 100 divisions, the air force standing 10, and the navy with 23 fleets, most of them recovered from washed ships from military bases that were not used during the war.
- 22 regions
- 5 autonomous regions
- 2 military-governed regions
- 3 independent city-regions
- 20 class A cities
- 823 class B+ cities
- 1280 class S cities
- 92394 class C cities
- 120000+ class D cities
The empire's religion is dominated by Catholics, Muslims, Protestants, and the post-war Church of Glob. There is also a small Buddhist minority in Cheshin.
CuisineEditBonnermann cuisine is rich in a variety of ways. First, they are rich in European-style cuisine, such as meaty foods.
Arts, Literature and MusicEdit
Bonnermann artists, singers and writers often used to follow the ideas of Socialist Realism, but due to the dethronement of Gustav XXI during the Civil War, restrictions were relaxed but to a certain degree, since they should include themes of patriotism and hardwork in their creations.
