Republic of Independent Nations
The Time of the Old Empire
The people of Trion called this pre-spacefaring age "The time of the Old Empire", when a Monarchy ruled over planet Trion, and had just discovered the "magic crystals" which have today become classified as RT. They saw that these crystals had unimaginable killing power, simply exposing a man to the crystals would cause him to suffer a painful, cancerous death.
After the United Communist Powers, the Old Empire's enemy, weaponized these crystals and ravaged Trion, the monarch was thrown out, and replaced with a a government, a Republic.
The New Republic
The new Republic, the Republic of Independent Nations, was formed, and immediately delved into an explanation for these red crystals. The early RIN found that the crystals gave off extreme radiation, not "the energy of death". The Republic was then able to use it's science to defeat it's old foe, and use it as a power source to take to the stars.
The Early RIN
The RIN's early days were somewhat mediocre, with a small military and little knowledge of Galaktik Relations. In these early days of G.R. 2,008 the RIN had foolishly aligned itself with the Immortal Empire. Later, the RIN saw the error of it's ways, and declared war upon the Immortals.
Mobilization For The Immortal War
While the RIN had pledged itself in the war effort for the Immortals not one G.R. before, it did not have a sizeable enough army to truly fight in such a war. After declaring war and allying with the Anti-Immortal Alliance,the RIN "reclaimed" large stretches of space from the Immortals, and industrialized. Many an amazing war machine was cranked out by the RIN's factories at this time, including the supermecha-class walkers known as the "Omega Doom"-class mech, a true feat of RIN engineering. However, during this industrial boom, the "independent nations" of the RIN quickly dissolved, and due to what some call "patriotism", all of the RIN's people simply started referring to themselves and their planets as "of the RIN" or "of Trion", and not as the nations they once were. Some speculate that this dissolution of the "independent nations" was due to the RIN's new leader, who simply referred to himself as "The Kommander", and promoted a great sense of nationalism.
The RIN and the Rise of the Third Alliance
When the Third Alliance was just being founded, the RIN was somewhat reluctant to join, seeing as how such a small alliance could not survive in the Immortal War. However, once the Third Alliance had begun to gain traction, the RIN finally joined. When elections for the Uberkaiser, the leader, of the Third Alliance started, the RIN's shadowy Kommander ran, even revealing his name: Alec. When Kommander Alec won the election, beating out [Bavaria]'s leader, Otto, in a landslide victory, Alec immediately set out to widen the Third Alliance's power and reach.
