The first known trace of
human presence on Abaki territory dates from about 5000 BP, with a
people of unknown origin settling on the southern shores of the Dersu
river. This people, nowadays known as the Leonovits (after their
discoverer, Gronkian archeologist Alexis Leonov), disappeared - also due
to unknown reasons - in 3900 BP, leaving behind little more than the
ruins of their stone villages.
arround 2000 BP, the Kzanikhi, a people coming from nowadays
Kzanikhstan, began to expand their territory through central
Eras. The Khanate, as their realm was called, had most of
Kzanikhstan, Azhistan and neighbouring areas under their control by 1800
BP, although the Kzanikhi continued to migrate north, reaching
the Yoakes plains arround 1750 BP and, by the following hundred
years, migrating to what is nowadays Lysonia, Western Zartania,
Severnaya and Abakia.

As the decades passed by, the Kzanikhi were expelled from their
lands in Zartania, the Yoakes and Lysonia by other peoples - of
Ulanogronkian-Kralian origin, mainly. Nowadays, there is little
to no trace of Kzanikhi heritage on these countries. The
remaining Kzanikhi lands in northern Eras were united by Shamur
Abako, who established the Khanate of the Abako with himself as
Great Kahn in 1532 BP. From this point on, the Kzanikhi of
northern Eras began to label themselves as Abaki.

For more than five
hundred years, the army of the Abako managed to keep the Kralian peoples
outside Abaki borders, except for the famous Raid of 1145 BP, when an
army of unknown origin ransacked the Abaki capital of Pal-M (nowadays
Palmer, Severnaya), killing Great Kahn Dersu Abako. All of that changed
in 984 BP, when the Ulanovan Empire, on their expansion through the
continent, conquered the Abako. Despite insurgent Abaki armies rising
against the Ulanovans for the next fifty years, their rule was
consolidated. Ulanovan customs were introduced to the Abaki, who, in the
following decades, adopted their language.

Flag of the Agron Kingdom
|On 960 BP, the city of Agron, a
former Cruisanan colony on nowadays Ansonia, rebeled against the Ulanovans and
established their Agron Kingdom, conquering much of the shores
of the North Gronkian Sea. By the year 900 BP, the Abaki lands
were also under their control. In 889 BP, the Kingdom of
Cruisana established trading posts on Abaki territory, founding
the cities of Zeljiopolis (nowadays Zelikogorod) and Lagonium (south
of Verto, near the present-day Abakia-Severnaya border). They also
introduced the Abaki to the Cruisan faith.

Starting in 820 BP, the
Agron Kingdom began to resettle ethnic Abaki further north. Ulanovan-
and Ingallish-speaking Kralians
were settled - forcibly or otherwise - on the areas south of the Arial
and Montilliya lakes, while the entire area was renamed as the Red Sky
Lakes Province. Arround 600 BP
(exact date unknown), the Agron Kingdom was renamed the Gronkian Empire
- or the Gronkian Kraljdom.
The country was called by both names until shortly before the Great

Despite their territory
exchanging hands several times and never again capable of forming their
own independent state, the Abaki retained their common cultural identity.
They never considered themselves Ulanovans or Agron or Gronkians, but
Abaki. Not even the opressive "Gronkification" policies could revert this.
|On 450 BP, an engineer named
Rapi Nunkutah called Abaki for revolt against Gronkian rule.
From the city of Peshaniya, he constructed and commanded a fleet
of as many as fifty wooden sailships. With these vessels, he
would attack Gronkian trading ships on the Red Sky Lakes, North
Gronkian Sea and Perikarsian Bay and also disembark soldiers and
conduct small raids on Gronkian coastal cities. Thanks to his
efforts, a Second Abaki Khanate was proclaimed arround Peshaniya
and Lake Arial. It was dissolved in 378 BP, after the Gronkian
navy finally decimated the pirate fleet and sent a land army to
the Red Sky Lakes. Rapi Nunkutah was captured and executed by
Gronkian forces in Bolshoi Bereg on the 23rd of December, 376 BP.
Today he is considered an Abaki national hero.

During the period when
their territory was under Gronkian control, the Abaki established
themselves as a seafaring society. Many officers of the Gronkian
Imperial Navy were of Abaki ethnicity. By 150 BP, the small and robust
Abaki fishing vessels (their design being a legacy from Nunkutah's works)
could be found all arround the northern coast of Eras, from the shores of
Merité to the Zartanian Norbay, and as far north as the Elafites and
Zufites archipelago. This fishing was one of the main sources of food
not only for the Abaki, but for all of the northern areas of the
Gronkian Empire. Apart from the fish, however, the Red Sky Lakes were
much negleted by the Imperial rule. If any public works were done
on the province, it was due to initiative of the provincial government
As the centuries passed,
the Red Sky Lakes and its people continued to be ignored by Gronkian
autorithies, being considered no more than a frozen wasteland - a
tourist destination, at most.

On 19th of February, 301, one of the small
militias operating on the Red Sky Lakes, called the Democratic Abaco
Army (DAA), marched through the provincial capital of Palmer, deposing
the inefective provincial government in a bloodless coup. On that same
day, DAA leader Clement Goodwood proclaimed the Democratic Republic of Abaco. Other
militias and remaining civilian authorities were quick on joining the
DAA soldiers marching on downtown

The Democratic Republic
of Abaco was a Kralian-dominated socialist state. All private industry
and farming lands were confiscated and nationalized by the so-called
Workers' Party of Abaco and its High Council of the State, as was all the mass media. However, this
socialist experience was poorly executed. The already-damaged
infraestructure of the country - unpaved roads and old power lines, for
exemple -, plus the inexperience of the Party bureaucrats, contributed much to the food, fuel and power shortages of the

August, 301, troops of the Kingdom of Elaphites and Zuphites (Ezo)
seized some Severnayan territory, all the lands east of Lake Smirnov.
After some quick fighting, however, the invaders were expelled in no
more than two weeks. Ezoan settlers brought in were allowed to stay,
however, and founded the cities of Verto and Vespertobordo.

within the Abaki people started a call for independence of the
Abaki-inhabited lands. This was supressed by the Kralian-ruled media, however.
