The Anean Continental War, also known as the Emmeria-Estovakia War or simply as the "continental war", was a major war fought between the Republic of Emmeria and the Federal Republic of Estovakia from mid-2015 to early 2016.

BackgroundEdit

Ulysses impactEdit

In 1994, the Ulysses asteroid was discovered by the International Astronomist Union, and was estimated to collide with Earth in 1999. In response, the countries of Usea and Anea immediately began to develop interception systems to engage the celestial body. One such system was Stonehenge, a railgun network seized by Erusea and destroyed in the Usean Continental War. Similarly, the Anean countries of Emmeria and Estovakia created their own countermeasures to the asteroid. Estovakia created the Chandelier railgun, while Emmeria did not produce any weapons, but instead built several underground shelters across the country.

Ulysses' impact on July 3, 1999 ravaged the northern hemisphere, killing over half a million in Usea in the first two weeks of the aftermath. Damage on Emmeria was kept to a minimum on account of the impact shelters; on the other hand, Estovakia was ravaged by the impact, suffering thousands of casualties and an absolute collapse of its economy.

Civil war and humanitarian interventionEdit

In 2000, Emmeria launched a plan aimed at providing humanitarian assistance to Estovakia until it could be self-sufficient, which was meant to be coordinated with NGOs and relief aid groups. The chronic lack of supplies across the country caused the government to lose control over Estovakia's regions, giving birth to armed groups that controlled different areas. Each group, known as a Faction, continuously launched raids in search of supplies, causing Emmeria to temporarily halt the aid efforts.

One of the factions, the Lyes United Front, seized western Estovakia and the country's former capital in April of 2007. The Emmerian government, seeking to lift the suspension of relief activities, responded by adapting their plans to the LUF's reconstruction project. However, the group used the humanitarian supplies to supress opposition to their rule; in one particular incident, it destroyed the lifelines to the city of Gledina, killing over 200,000 people. Shocked by the act of the Lyes Front, the Eastern Faction rose in arms against the group, followed by other factions, triggering the Estovakian Civil War. Relief assistance to the LUF was discontinued in 2010, and halted once more the following year.

Conclusion of the warEdit

At some point during the war, the Eastern Front launched the "Aerial Fleet Initiative", a plan involving Belkan War veteran Lorenz Riedel, who supplied the faction with classified Belkan research on heavy command cruiser technology. Using such confidential data, the group developed the P-1112 Aigaion aircraft carrier and two smaller airship types, the P-1113 Kottos and the P-1114 Gyges, which were used to great effect against enemy forces, ultimately allowing them to bring the war to an end in 2013.

In the aftermath of the war, a new government was formed by former EF members, commander Gustav Dvornik among them. Remnants of the Lyes United Front continued to wage an insurgency movement against the new administration. Two notable incidents include the death of Foreign Minister Isaac Alenski in a bombing attack in December 2012 and a raid on a humanitarian base near Vistoc in west Estovakia in 4 February of 2014, in which Emmerian soldiers and NGO members were killed.

Members of the Estovakian government expressed their discontent at Emmeria, citing that their aid to the LUF contributed to the outbreak of the civil war. At a conference the day after the Vistoc attack, Ambassador Bell of the Reconstruction Assistance for Estovakia group countered by claiming that Emmeria's objective was to help in the rebuilding of the country. During this time, it was feared that the delivery of aid to the country would lead to the formation of a military dictatorship.

Outbreak of warEdit

Invasion of GracemeriaEdit

At some point in 2013 or 2014, Gustav Dvornik commissioned a military junta, known as "The Generals", to govern Estovakia. The junta convinced the country's populace that a military dictatorship was the only way of restoring prosperity to the nation, and that Emmeria was the sole responsible for the outbreak of the Estovakian Civil War.

Behind the scenesEdit

The events of the war are depicted in the "Emmeria" campaign of the mobile game Ace Combat: Northern Wings, in which the player character is involved in assisting the evacuation from Gracemeria and clearing the way for the attack on Chandelier. However, as with other missions in the game, the canonicity of these events is questionable, as Nordennavik has never been officially involved in either the Circum-Pacific War or the war in Anea.
