Raiders, I know what you're thinking. " Will he fire those nukes?" Well to tell you the truth in all that excitement I'll kinda lose track myself. But being this is a lot of nukes, the most powerful weapon in the world and they would blow your nation clean into a crater, you've gotta ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?

|History:||Initially a trading outpost in the center of southern Africa Mercia quickly became a central trading hub for the area. As trade increased merchants began developing land in the nearby area. As the developed area grew, the heads, or Barons, of these small hamlets met together in what was known as the Spectral Conference to determine the future of the nation. After 6 weeks of debate it was decided that the capital of Mercia would forever be the first of the Hamlets, Redvale. 4 weeks later they had determined that the Exalted Ruler would be determined by popular vote among the villages and would reign until his death. The first vote chose the Red Barron who ruled as a wise Exalted Ruler and expanded the nation into a localized power. The second Exalted Ruler, the Blue Barron, expanded overseas bringing their trading to knew shores. The current Exalted Ruler is the Black Barron.|
