First Colonial Wave
Beginning in the late 1400s, the cultural divide that isolated North-East Minstos from the rest of the nation, began a separatist movement. This movement, growing stronger in the early 1500s, gathered people from all parts of the region that was once the Parunian States.
With the growing expansionist ideals of the Minston Federation, many from Paurian regions began feeling uncomfortable of what their country was doing on the world stage. Many issues such as the use of Hard Laborers, rapid industrialism, and corrupt leaders led to the three provinces in North-East Minstos to secede from the Minston Federation to form the Republic of Ferrudon in 1551.
Within two weeks of seceding from the Federation, Minston rose its troops to regain its lost territory. For the next four years, the Minstos Civil war would drag on, until in 1555 when Minston called for peace, recognizing the Republic of Ferrudon as an independent nation.
Second Colonial Wave
Geography, climate, and environment
The Minston Federation is a federal union of 12 provinces, and one territory. The original 5 provinces were created when Minston joined in a personal-union with Amos, creating the provinces of Dové, Entero, Paliant, Arbon, and Creote. The second surge of provinces were created when the Axel Empire joined the Minston-Amos union, forming the West Minstos Federation, and creating three new provinces. Falten, Aexea, and the expansion Paliant, until 950, when it was divided into North and South Paliant. The Savamoz Territory was purchased from Verras in 1000. The next provinces were created after the Minsto-Verrian Wars in 1070s, when Verrian territory was added to the federation, creating Illiat, Vereo, Uterra, and Varia. When Ferrudon was annexed in the 1200s, the provinces of Pauria, Tauto, and Ferra were formed, which were later lost when Ferrudon seceded in the 1550s.

Government and politics
The government is composed of three divisions:
- The Crown: Holds the most power. Has final say over other divisions.
- The Council: A council of thirteen representitives, each representing a province.
- The Theatre: A large group of people representing provinces. The amount of representatives are based on population.
Parties and Elections
Federal Party- focuses on controlling the population. Has bits of a monarchy and fascism.
Republican Party- trying to move the Federation to be more a Republic. Wants a more democratic system.
Socialist Party- for the people, focusing on social issues and rights. Extremists involved in social terrorism.
The three political parties have been fighting for control of the government since the late AD1300s. Before then, Minston was still ruled completely by a monarchy. A new government was established in 1367, still having the crown hold most of the power, but adding two “democratic” systems below it. The systems had a large amount of control in the government, but can be overruled by the king/queen. Throughout the years, legislation was passed limiting the monarch power.
