Initial Foreign Intervention (2013-2015)


Early on the morning of the 30th of July 2013, Morivaine and Questarian paratroopers landed at the Ortaca and Izmir (respectively) in order to capture the airfields located in those cities. Once an air bridge had been formed with the Alisnan mainland, follow on forces began to arrive in large numbers. During this time, the Karamanite local politician in Izmir, Erberk Ozdemir, negotiated a ceasefire between local Karamish forces and the Questarian troops. Prekovi troops made landfall near Kozlu on the 31st of July and began to consolidate their hold on the predominately ethnic Vyzanti regions of the northeast of Karaman. On August 1st, as Morivaine and Questarian troops began moving on the Karamish capital of Corum, the Morivaine, Prekovi, and Questarian governments announced the signing of the Izmir Tripartite Agreement that outlined the division of Karaman under zones of occupation and established safe zones for international aid workers and organizations to operate in Silvan and Corum. Prekovi forces, consolidating their beachhead and advancing inland crossed the Coruh river on the 3rd of August.

Morivaine and Questarian troops entered Corum on the 4th of August within hours of each other, both meeting near the Sajur River in central Corum to commemorate the collapse of Pashite resistance in the capital, though formal combat operations in the city would not be concluded until the collapse of the Corum Commune's military on the 7th following the death of İlker Evran. Prekovi forces entered the capital the next day to the announcement that Questarian and Morivaine forces had assassinated Pasha at his bunker complex in central Karaman. Additionally, the Morivaine and Questarian governments recognized the creation and establishment of the National Republic of Karaman as an independent sovereign state that controlled all Karamish territory west of the Sajur River. The next day, the Prekovi government announced and recognized the sovereignty and independence of the Holy Vyzantini Republic that would control all of Karamish territory east of the Sajur River. Borders and occupational authority measures were finalized by the Izmir Tripartite on the 11th of August.

International reaction to events was fairly critical, with some members of the Maredoratic League voicing their concern about the actions of the Morivaine, Questarian, and Prekovi governments. After several days of deliberation, the Maredoratic League voted to send its own peacekeeping mission under the command of the Sondsteadish general [[]], arriving in Karaman in the first week of August. Contingents from Valcluse, Galla, Van Luxemburg, and Cote d'Or joined Sondsteadish troops in occupying the port of Silvan. During this time, the Maredoratic League also recognized the Provisional Government of Karaman, comprised of non-Pashite officials from before the Karaman Civil War. Vocal criticism among Karamish populations abroad reached a fever pitch when a member of the Karamish community in Sondstead initiated the firebombing of the Morivaine Consulate-General in Windstrand.

After the conclusion of the Tripartite Agreement's final zones of occupation, Morivaine and Questarian troops began a systematic counter-insurgency campaign against the remaining Pashite and anti-Tripartite forces in the National Republic of Karaman.


Counter-insurgency efforts intensify.


  • Morivaine troops begin new anti-terrorist operation in southwestern Karaman aimed at disarming Karamanite christian militias.


  • Questarian and Morivaine militaries begin anti-terrorist operation in northeastern Karaman aimed at destroying the Islamic Front of Karaman.
