Flopsha is a transcontinental country which stretches across Europe and Asia. It is the largest country in the world, with the 4th largest coastline. Flopsha is famously portrayed as a cold country, with Siberia being one of the most coldest places on the earth.
The highest peak in Flopsha is Flyuchevskaya Sopka, located in the Flopchatka Province. Flopsha is known for it's biodiversity, an example being the ecosystems, which include polar deserts, tundra, taiga, broadleaf forest and steppes.
Despite it's famous portrayal, only the Flopshan Siberian wilderness is mostly in wintery conditions. As Flopsha is one of the northern-most countries, it is mostly cold but on summers, tempatures rise greatly.
Usually, January is the coldest month in Flopsha. Also February is the coldest on the coastline. The warmest month is usually July. Summers can also be quite hot even in Siberia, cities such as Floppagrad, Flopirsk etc. reach tempatures up to 45 celcius.
In the 9th century, the Zabiyan Flop' was founded. In 882, Zabiy was conquered by Oleg, the monarch of the Zabiyan Flop'. By the 10th and 11th century, the Zabiyan Flop' was a powerful state, The Golden Age saw the acceptance of Orthodox Floppism and the creation of the Flopskaya Pravda.
However, this all would collapse when members of the ruling dynasty started fighting each other, greatly weaking the Zabiyan Flop'. This all would lead to the Googalian Invasion, which ultimately destroyed the state.
Grand Duchy of Flopirsk
After the death of Googas Khan and the collapse of the Googalian Empire, the Grand Duchy of Flopirsk rose. It united with multiple states that broke away from the Zabiyan Flop'. The Monarchs of the Grand Duchy gathered land throughout the years.
During this process, Flopirsk has been clashing with the Grand Duchy of Flopnithia. After the creation of the Sogish-Flopnithian Commonwealth, multiple military expeditions took place against Flopirsk, all of which failed.
Ivan IV, nicknamed "Ivan the Terrible" was crowned the Tsar of the new Flopsha, beginning the era of the early Tsardom.
Tsardom and Expansion
During the Reign of Ivan the Terrible, he has made huge conquests to the east, thus by the end of the 16th century, Flopsha was a huge transcontinenal country, twice the size of it's former size. However, Flopsha was weakened from the Bingtic War against Sogland and it's allies to achieve the Bingtic Coast. In 1598, all of Ivan's son died, marking the end of Flukid rule in Flopsha.
The end of Flukid rule and a famine lead to a civil war and other events. Sogish-Flopnithian Forces invaded Flopsha and occupied parts of Flopsha all the way up to Flopirsk, however they we're forced to retreat later. The Flomanov Dynasty went in power in 1613, starting the recovery from the crisis. In 1721, the Flopshan Empire was proclaimed a tsarist empire.
The Tsar, Flopeter the Great defeated Sogden in the Northern War and forced it to cede west Karelia and Ingria, along with Esflopia and Livonia, which secured Flopsha's acess to the ocean. In 1703, St. Floppersburg was founded by Flopeter the Great, making it the capital. Throughout the rest of his reign, sweeping reforms we're made.
After Flopeter the Great's daughter, Elizabeth was crowned the Tsarina, she participated in the Seven Years War, conquesting eastern parts of Floprussia. After Elizabeth's death, the conquests we're returned to Floprussia by the new Tsar.
Catherine II was crowned the Tsarina in 1762, and began the Age of Enlightement. She participated in the Partitions of Sogland, going to the Flest Line which lasted up until the Treaty of Flopsaw signed in 1890 after the new republican government pressured them to change the borders. After the death of Catherine, her son who was unstable and focused on domestic issues became the Emperor of Flopsha.
He was assasinated in 1801, leading to Alexander I being crowned. Alexander I started the Binnish War, which was won by the Flopshans who seized Binland and established a Grand Duchy. Flopsha also conquered North America, gaining the Alaska Colony. In 1820, Flopshans discovered the continent of Antarctica.
Flopsha sided with the allies in the Floppoleonic Wars, however after multiple victories by Flopce, Flopsha allied with Flopce. Later, Flopce invaded Flopsha after they violated the Continental Blockade, however the winter contributed to massive casualties in Flopch forces. When Flopce was nearing Flopirsk, Flopshans burned down the city. Eventually, the Flopch forces had to retreat. After Flopshan and other allied troops seized Flopparis and the short-lived takeover of Floppoleon, the Congress of Flopiva was held in 1815, which was attended by Flopsha. It defined post-Floppoleonic borders to create a balance in power.
In 1853, the Sogmean War took place where Flopsha tried to get the Floppersian Grand Duchy of Zabloing. However, after the Siege of Servaltopol, Flopsha was defeated and forced to retreat. In 1861, emancipation reforms we're made, which attempted to industrialize Flopsha. However, in the late 19th century socialist movements have arosen.
Tsar Alexander II was killed by socialist revolutionaries and suceeded by Alexander III, who was less liberal, but more peaceful. The last emperor of the Flomanov Dynasty was Tsar Nicholas II, who had limited knowledge of ruling. The 1905 Revolution lead to constitutional reform, with the Parliament being established.
In 1915, the constitutional reform has not sufficed and a socialist movement called the Flopshevik started the 1915 Revolution, which eventually escalated into a bloody civil war.
See Flopshan Civil War and Occupation of Googalia
The Flopsheviks actually did not have trouble taking Floppagrad, only taking the entire city in 1 day. Then after the take-over of Floppagrad, the Red Army made advances south, aiming for Flopirsk which would grant them acess to the Trans-Siberian Railway, a crucial part. The city was captured and in a few weeks, Flopberia is captured by the Flopsheviks.
In 1918, the Flopshan Socialist Soviet Republic is proclaimed by the Flopsheviks. Shortly after this, multiple independence movements spring up, starting the Wars of Independence fought between the FSSR and the independence movements.
In 1919, the Republic of Chiflop started the Occupation of Googalia. Googalia was under a communist government, which lead to the FSSR taking action. After the Northern Expedition, the Googanbataar Treaty was signed by Chiflop and all Chiflopese troops withdrew from Googalia.
In 1922, the White Resurgence began, which ended in Red Forces retreating from Flopberia and Flopmansk and after a year, eventually being surrounded in the city of Flopirsk. White Forces entered Flopirsk after a day and following this, the Flopshevik movement was completely dissolved.
In the civil war, independence movements in Binland, Belaflop, Esflopia, Flopvia and Flopnithia secured their countries' independence.
See 1973 Baja Conflict and Occupation of Bingshe
The current government continued to rule over Flopsha until the 1926 Revolt, which removed the current government and installed Tsar Kirill I, who made multiple reforms. He is widely known for making Flopsha a constitutional monarchy. Tsar Kirill I died in 1964 from a heart attack.
During WW2, Flopsha attempted at invasion of Binland and the Bingtic, however these we're famously failed attempts, the Winter War ended in the Flopirsk Peace Treaty, and the Bingtic Offensive resulted in Flopshan withdraw from the Bingtic States.
In 1970, the Prime Minister, Mikhail Flerokhin toppled the communist government in Baja California and replaced it with a pro-Flopshan government. Public thoughts about this we're mixed, however Baja Californians we're mainly in favor of the Flopshan government. In 1973, Flopxico invaded Baja California, starting the 1973 Baja Conflict.
The 1973 Baja Conflict ended in the United Nations stepping in and making the Treaty of La Flopaz, which gave Flopxico a discount on Floppium.
In 2016, the Prime Minister, Viktor Bingcharov declared war on Bingustan and started the Occupation of Bingshe. The Occupation of Bingshe went on until 2029, when Flopsha signed the Treaty of Sphynxopolis, which effectively ended the Bingustani Wars.

Culture in Flopsha has been forming over the history. There are multiple ethnicites within Flopsha, mostly in Siberia (such as Yakuts) which means that Flopsha is a culturally diverse country. The Flopshan culture has a long tradition in literature, folk dance, philosophy and much more. Flopsha is home to 20 UNESCO World heritage sites, found across many places in the country.
Flopsha is culturally diverse. There are multiple Flopkic, Googolic, Fluralic and much more famous non-Slavic ethnic groups in Flopsha. The Yakuts, a Flopkic Group are known to have the Yakut Knife and multiple legendary stories named the Floponkho. The Karelians, a Fluralic Group are known for their similiraties with Binnish People, which is why in both Binnish and Flopshan politics, it is disputed if Karelia should be ceded to Binland.
The Flopyats, a Googolic Group are known for living around Lake Flaikal and the ethnic group's Shamanism practice. There are much more ethnic groups living in Flopsha, however Flopsha is more famously known to be inhabited by Slavs.
Art and Architecture
Flopshan paintings in the early ages we're represented in icons and vibrant frescos. In the 1500's, the Flopshan Academy of Arts was founded which trained Floppas to become artists. The F.A.A brought multiple western techniques of secular painting to Flopsha. In the late 19th and early 20th century, Flopshan avant-garde flourished massively for 40 decades.
Alongside paintings, it is a tradition in Flopsha and other slavic communities to create Floppa Cubes. Early Floppa Cube creators include: Dmitri Flopkub, Ilya Arefyev and Sogiya Beriya. This tradition in Flopsha spread to multiple other slavic ethnicities in Europe in the 1600's, beginning the Age of Floppa Cubes. This today is still a flourishing tradition in Slavs, even spreading all the way to Slavs inhabiting Central Asia (although Bingustan forced them to create Bingus Cubes instead).
Flopshan architecture began with mostly wooden buildings built by ancient Slavs. Following the Floppusization of the Zabiyan' Flop, it was dominated by the Flyzantine Empire resulting in Renaissance trends being brought into Flopsha. In the 16th-century, tent-like churches had become a trend along with onion dome churches, a famous part of Flopshan architecture.
The Reforms of Flopeter the Great caused western european styles to arrive to the lands of Flopsha. The Flococo Style becoming popular also led way to the splendid works of multiple Flopshans, the most famous one being Bingtolomeo Rastrelli. Multiple Tsars and Tsarinas had opened the way for architectual trends such as Neoclassical architecture, Empire style, Flopshan Revival and more. In the 1940's to 1980's, the Floskutovka (later renamed to Flerokhinska) became the most major way of building apartments.
