Beginnigs of Morochan Written History and the Middle Ages
The earliest Morochans were from northern Anatolia and the western coasts of modern-day Georgia. They were either descendants of other Anatolian peoples, such as the Hittites or separate Indo-Eurpean speaking tribes. In legend, it was said that St. Paul converted the Morochans, known at that time as Voreiois (Greek, meaning "northeners") after they heard the good news of Christ. However, Paul was'nt supposed to go into Eastern Anatolia as warned by the Holy Spirit in the book of Acts, so they would be Christians only in the turn of the 3rd century A.D. where the Roman persecution of Christians was about to decline. The church was created by St. Saul of Galatia in 398 A.D. 2 decades After the council of Chalcedon in the early 450's, the Morochans were forcefully and permanetly expelled from their homelands after their leader, St. Herman, allied himself with the non-Chalcedonian Alexandrian churches although he later began an alliance with the Nestorians. They settled briefly in Crimea for 15 years before settling into the old Greek colony of Tyras in modern-day Ukraine.
Herman delcared himself as the sovereign patriarch of the Voreioan principality in 491 A.D.
The Voreioan city-state existed for almost 300 years. during this time contacts with Armenians, Georgians, Greeks, Jews & Iranians were common and several loans and borrowings were inserted into their language such as ghina "wine" from Armenian and konyo "public" from Greek. The Khazars annexed Voreioa in 828 A.D. At this point, the language began it's written history with the earliest attestments written in a Hebrew-style alphabet with even one reportedly written in Old Turkic. In 899, The Greek Khazarian Aris Asatay was crowned patriarch of Voreioa when he was nearly eighteen, and ruled for a good chunk of the 10th century. Next in line was Mara I, who was a brillant warrior and nobleman, and who defeated the Avars in battle. He was given the name of Maraça meaning "Maracha the Hero" by the Slavs and Khazars. He later named the country and his people after him. The new Morochan kingdom began to expand a little after the fall of Khazaria and the rise of Kiev Rus. King Germahti I was a Jew turned Christian who oversaw the rise of the Slavs and the death of the Khazars and who was the first to translate the Bible into Morochan. He also built the country's first churches and began a two-century-long project to tranform Turş into a powerful and commercial trading post and seaport. The next kings continued his reforms and plans, and by the 12 century, Turş had became one of the most successful seaports in the Black Sea. During the crusades, King Mara II was netural in war and began welcoming Jews, Turks and Greeks from both sides.
In the early 15th century, King Zlaham engaged in a power struggle with his right hand man Archduke Tariş Palhuzük, A wealthy and powerfu landlord & slave owner working for Pope Martin V , He helped set up a coup d'etat against him and attempted to transform Morocha into a strict and repressive Catholic police state until Zlaham, who was in exile in Crimea during all of this, came back with the support of the Golden Horde, liberated the nation and banishing Tariş and his lackeys to Anatolia where they were held hostage and eventually killed by the then-invading Ottoman army. He also expelled the Catholic personnel from his country, never agian one of them returned until the early 18th century, and made Morocha vassal to the decilining Horde so he could protect his country from Catholic threats.
In 1512, after the Horde died down, Morocha was under the protection of the Crimean Khanate for over 90 years, and during these 90 years, it became prosperous again due to the various contacts between the Morochans and Turks, Vlachs, Moldavians, Russians & Poles and the protection of the Khanate itself. The Reformation also happend and several Transylvanian Protestants and Jews were allowed to immigrate to Morocha in 1559. The Khanate was Islamic and a vassal of the Ottomans but they allowed the Morochans to pratice their religion and cultures freely as was declared and emphasized in the Moro-Crimean Treaty of Bağçasaray in 1544. Even King Mikali II's nepehew converted to Islam and became Grand Mufti of Turş.
During the Russian attempts to invade the Khanate however, the vassal was spared from their path of destruction because King Mikali II secretly negotiated with the Rus and telling them not to harm his people. The Crimean Tatar language was influential in the rise and development of Late Morochan.
Interwar Years: Dictatorship and Socialism
Government and Politics
Morocha is a Multi-party Socialist State governed under the ideologies of Socialism and Democracy under the ruling Morochan People's Freedom Party, created in order to create a true and reasonable equal society which is governed for the betterment, nature and progress of humankind.
Many Western politicans during the Cold War wrongly compared Morochan Socialism with Yugolsavia's Titoism. Yes, Mororchan Socialism shares many traits with Titoism (including neutrality, liberal economy, anti-war, anti-Stalinism, anti-Imperialism & limited freedoms), But because Titoism is another variant of Marxist–Leninist communisim and of the government being anti-communistic, Many Morochans at that time prefer to call Titosim as a form of "democractic socialism" instead.
The Morochan People's Republic is one of the only socialist states abhoring Communism alongside Westland.
Morocha is an member of the Non-Alinged Movement and the International Order of Socialist States.

Formerly it had diplomatic relations with the United States & the Mexican Social Republic that were broken in 2005 and 2015 respectively due to America's aggressive foreign policy and numerous invasions and coups, including those at Iraq and Mexico's horrendous invasion of Central America. It was very critical of the post-coup Ukranian government though questioned Russia's alleged "invasion" of Crimea and Donetsk's alleged stricter mishandling of minorites, especially Jews and LGBTs. And even going as far as to recognise the disputed territories of Abkhazia, South Ossetia and Novorussiya, it condemed atorcities on both sides of the Russo-Georgian war of 2008.
