History

See also: History of Kobidar

Early History

Kobidar was discovered by Leif Ericson in 1000 A.D. on his way to discovering Vinland. Leif appointed fellow Viking Oddr Thiostarson as ruler of the land. Thiostarson settled Kobidar, and became King. The Kingdom, known as Oddrsland, exported huge amounts of oil and whale meat

War of Independence

The Kobin War of Independence, known commonly to the Kobin people as War of Independence, was fought between the early Kobin settlers and the Icelandic Vikings. The war started in 1017, when Kobin protestors sunk a cargo ship sent from Iceland that was set to unload and take it's pick of the Kobin crops. Iceland soon retaliated by sending 150 armed soldiers to Oddrsland (as it was known then) who occupied civilian households and generally wreaked havoc on the citizens of Oddrsland. Oddrsland massed a small army of about 90 men at arms and killed or captured at least 110 of the soldiers with a well coordinated sneak attack. The men at arms held the captured soldiers hostage, asking for the promise of Independence for their return.


Revolution of 1536

In 1536, a soldier named Jónatan Kobidson became fed up with King Hinrik and his seemingly never ending greed. Kobidson massed a small army to combat the king, who had claimed most of the island's game, livestock and mines as his own. Kobidson eventually defeated the King, by promising his own men riches if they helped him. Hinrik was to be executed, but Kobidson took pity on the man, and cast him off in the direction of Iceland. Kobidson renamed his country as Kobidar, and became new King. It was then that Vaastväk was officially named capital of Kobidar.

Uprising of 1856

In 1856, an organization known as Losa um fólk(free the people) demanded the downgrading of the King to a ceremonial role, with threats of war. King Adam III  to step down, as he knew his weak military was no match for the heavily supported Losa um fòlk. He appointed Òskar Bewflesson as the first Prime Minister, and wrote up the first constitution. Eventually the revolts died out.

World War 2

Kobidar fought with the Allies during WW2, sending a large amount of troops to Europe to combat the Nazis. Prime Minister Pétri Olgeirsson was killed while visiting occupied Denmark. This sparked a need to send many more troops and aid to the Allies. The eventual death toll of Kobin soldiers is unknown, though it is suspected to be in the thousands.

War of the Pan-Handle

The War of the Pan-Handle, was fought between the Kobidar Military, and the terrorist group Upplýstur Sjálfur and their followers. The war lasted 2 and a half months, from early February in 1986 to late May of the same year, with the eventual victor being Kobidar, although Upplýstur Sjálfur occupied 12 square miles of the pan-handle, including the town of Rösläsk. They called the town Upplýsta lýðveldið, claiming to be an independent nation for 28 days. Eventually, the extremists were pushed out of the town and most were arrested, including leader Astbjörn Abdullah. The town of Rösläsk was re-claimed, and heavier defense laws were put into place.

Modern Era 

Kobidar has prospered under the leadership of Róbert Ármannsson, who has been Prime Minister for 37 years. Recently, construction for a new stilt city, Greja, has been started, along with the finishing of the Jolos Building, the tallest building in Kobidar.
