Welcome to the grand Empire of Lyonia! We are willing to trade with anyone; if you need goods, we have them to sell! Need to sell goods? We’re here to buy ‘em! However, we are both meant to make a profit, so don’t try selling me goods above market value, or buying them at half market value. We will work out a price together, and I’ll even (if you’re a loyal customer) give you up to 10%-15% of what the goods sell for (if you’re selling, that is)! Welcome to the Resource Capital of the World!

History:The Empire of Lyonia has a complicated history. We are the direct descendants of Sparta; we have been oppressed, hidden away in a fighting force, for centuries, ever since the damned Athenians took control of our uprising in the Ottoman Empire. We could have had glory, could have been great!- but alas, the Athenians bargained with the British for a pittance compared to our empires previously. We defeated Persia in its golden era, but under the leadership of Athens, we couldn't even defeat a collapsing wanna-be empire without help. Therefore, we rose up from the tyrants, we defeated them in an amazing show of force, we have proved ourselves the world! We will continue to crush them and take over the rest of Greece, rightfully ours, then the rest of our empire, and then the world! WE ARE LYONIA, FOR SPARTA IS REBORN!

Military
History:The armed forces of Lyonia were established long before traditional history realizes, and have been around longer than the United States of America. Since 1440, during and before the Ottoman conquest of Greece (*spits*) the Spartans had their own private military fighting for them, as all established nations did. This military went underground after the fall of Greece and was instrumental in occupying much-needed Ottoman forces during 1529 at the Siege of Vienna. Those Ottoman forces tied up in Greece thought they had eradicated this underground Spartan military, and they nearly had; only one young boy of 14 was left alive, and only barely. Those Ottoman forces they occupied, however, didn't make it to Vienna in time, stopping Ottoman advance into Europe. These fallen heroes deserve to be recognized; they, and they alone, are the ones that saved Vienna, and further from that, Europe, from Ottoman conquest. Anyway, this young man is taken in and eventually marries several women (a common practice at the time, so do not shame him). He and his family lay low for years, as over a few decades the Lyonian underground military is replenished. All are taught to fight, even the women (highly unusual for the time). Within a century, the military is recovered and watches with the world as the English have their civil war. The military lies unusually low for the next century, only acting a bit here or there. During the American Revolution, a squad of about a hundred of them sabotage British troops and supplies in Africa; this is a major reason the US gained independence. The British were tied up with 'insurgents' and had to go around Africa or risk losing troops and supplies. Less than fifty years later, the military activates in the Greek Independence War of 1822 and is crucial to the disgusting defeat of the Ottomans. Within another hundred years, World War I stuns the world. Greece's ability to destroy the Ottomans is due to crucial Lyonian troops in key cities and battles. Another thirty years and these troops are called back into action, holding out for a long time against the German war machine after having made the Italian military a laughingstock. Sick of being oppressed and unrecognized by the government, in 1980 they rebelled and took control of Sparta. The Greek government laughed at this and sent in the military, presuming these protesters and insurgents would give up at the sight of fighting people. The Lyonian Independence Battle of Sparta was the most humiliating defeat the Greeks have ever suffered. The government kept the news of the insurgents quiet; they didn't want to be embarrassed, and besides, the Cold War was a larger problem. After a full forty years of being unrecognized by the global community, and the United Nations, the Lyonians redeclared independence, seizing their current ~750 miles of land, crushing the military sent against them.
