HistoryEdit

DoomsdayEdit

It is known that no atomic devices had hit the territory in the Soviet attack. A few devices had hit nearby Manchester, Liverpool and Birkenhead in the assault that had destroyed most of Merseyside and all of central Mancester, leading to a major radiation crisis.

Missile and bomb strikes were at-

After DoomsdayEdit

The still living council members, police, lord mayors and firemen met in the north Welsh towns of- Machynlleth, Caersws, Mostyn, Llandudno, Llangollen, Welshpool and Wrexham, Denbigh, Mold, Colwyn Bay and Flint at vauriose times in 1962 and 1963 to form local authorises at the time. The Llangollen- Chirk union, the community of Montgomeryshire and Wrexham City Union decided to join Mercia, rather than form a new state in north east Wales. The politicaly vocal Methodist Denbigh vicar Rev. Frank Williams became the commune's leader in 1963. He advocated a strong message of social equally, unity and morality. He achieved this by using the police force and remaining troops to crack down on food horders in perticular, and on occasion even petty crimes such as stealing a loaf bread from markets and vandalism to. 12 foodhorders were stoned to death and their food given to the hungry in the May of 1964!

Rev. Frank Williams banned may things under his rules and regulations. The leading ones were-

  1. Prohibition of Idolatry and hommaging to graven images or likenesses of living cratures,
  2. Prohibition of Murder, GBH and rape,
  3. Prohibition of Theft and fraud,
  4. Prohibition of Sexual immorality, mini-skits, porn and commuting adultery.
  5. Prohibition of Blasphemy and takeing the Lord's name in vain,
  6. Prohibition of eating flesh taken from an animal while it is still alive,
  7. Prohabition of the establishment of secular courts of law (the church was also a religiose court),
  8. Prohibition of non-Christains/Jews/Moslems/Seikh religions,
  9. Prohibition of work on Sunday, except in life or death situations,
  10. Prohibition of bearing false witness and perjury,
  11. Prohibition of coveting things, lust and jelosey,
  12. Prohibition of abusive relations inside a family unit,
  13. Prohibition of dog and cock fighting,
  14. Prohibition of food, water and resource hording,
  15. Prohibition of homosexual and lesbian marages,
  16. Prohibition of sloth, idleness, workplace sickies, bunking off school, deserting you work-post and not turning up for work and/or school with out due cause.

Due to these measures, things improved quickly as crime fell and food supply rose. Temperatures fell 6C below average in the nuclear winter of 1962-63 and rose to 5C. above average in the nuclear summer of 1963-65.

A severe famine and a minor cholera outbreak hit the region, killing many people during 1963 and most of 1964. The nation would struggle to final victory over the various raids by the tribesmen around the ruined cities of Liverpool and Birkenhead.

1965-1974Edit

The nation tried to maintain an independent and self-sufficient way of life, but it was hard going at best of times. The fishing fleet was expanded as best it could to provide a additional source of food. Fish was expected to become the staple food of Colwyn Bay, with the left overs also being used for fertilizer. A minor cholera outbreak hit Flint during 1965, in which 9 people would become ill and 2 others died. A major drive on repairing and cleaning a former sewage tank finally put pay to it. As time passed, agricultural output slowly rose.

The Mostyn dock manager, Justin Lowe, was pointed leader by the ruling powers in 1969. He promised democratic elections by 1972.

President Annette Jones was the first democraticly elected leader of the nation and ruled from 1972 to 1974.

First ContactEdit

First contact was made with the Duchy of Lancashire on January the 5th 1967. The Welsh SSR and the Commune of Tywyn made contact in 1977. Relations with all 3 were for the most part good.

1978-2000Edit

Relations were tence with the PRUK and Welsh SSR over the battel of Clun, but things inproved in 1979. The growth of trade with Ireland and Lancashire helped boost the economy and so living standards began to rise masivly in the CCB in the 1980's. Variouse out lying border villages and tribes were fore the most-part peacfully assimilated between 1981 and 1991.

Present dayEdit

The nations have developed to about the same standard of living, moral values and political attitudes as the more rural parts of the Duchy of Lancashire. Both are long standing allies against the hostile tribesmen form the ruined cities of N. W. England and Anglesey. It is a pleasant agricultural community that free form human vice and is steadily moving to merger with their masters in Lancashire.

The honorific floods and cyclone of November 22-28, 2012, devastated the former UK and Ireland. It finally killed a total of 42 people (39 citizens and 3 tourists)- 4 in Newlyn, 1 in Honiton, 1 in Truro, 3 in Exeter, 1 in Bovney Tracy, 2 in Shrewsbury, 2 in Gloucester, 2 in St Asaph, 1 in Wexford, 1 in Preston, 1 in Penrith 1 in Ayr, 1 in Cambridge, 3 in Monmouth, 2 in Northallerton, 2 in Kempsey, 1 in Chester, 1 Warwick, 1 in Derby, 1 Bridgewater, 3 in Upton-upon-Severn and 4 in Malmesbury, plus 3 Lower Saxon tourists in Warwick. It was the worst flooding incident in nearly 100 years! Aid came from Hexanshire, Durhamshire, Scarborough, Ayrshire, Perthshire, Denmark, Sussex, Willihamshaven, Kingdom of Lille-Wallonia, and the Neo-Roman Empire.

EconomyEdit

It is largely dependent on agriculture, forestry and fishing. Like most other post-Doomsday European nations, especially British ones, the economy is poor and suffers from labour shortages. Most of the economy is weighted towards agricultural production though there is some industrial aspects to the economy but it is nowhere near the capability of nations like Durhamshire or the Duchy of Lancashire.
