The Centralized Republic of Shecagua (pronounced sheh-CAUWHG-wah) is a human nation under the control of Jaystriker7, known on the Antinoch forum as Starstriker7. It is based on continent Moyen-Sud, and is generally centered around the Amarillo River and the Willamette Sea in the south. The country is essentially a democratic republic unified under the government in Dearborn, which makes Dearborn the nation's federal capital. The elected president of Shecagua is Charleton Adamanious; his power is checked by the Sears Asientu congressional body. The Shecaguan nation was officially incorporated on December 29, 2009.
The region that is Shecagua today has historically been inhabited by intermediary traders that bought goods from Ashura-Chana and Tugal on the Arawdielli Sea coast at north and sold them to peoples on the Willamette Sea. During the wave of Tugali colonialism during the Median Era, however, an Gerrarian merchant named João Aurolliet ventured down the Amarillo River and set up a fortaleza named Fortaleza Dearborn to cut out the middlemen in the trading chain and avoid the high prices charged by the buyers on the Moyen-Sud-Arawdielli coastline in the north. This action angered the Moyenese barterers, who stormed the fortaleza and slaughtered its inhabitants in the Fortaleza Dearborn Massacre. Aurolliet had not yet reported back to Tugal, so arriving Tugali merchants mistook the Moyenese barterers for Aurolliet's initial posse and traded with them instead; the Moyenese took advantage of this impression to pose as Tugali traders in the fortaleza, which brought massive profit to the barterers. The end of the Median Era in Tugal and the coming of the Tugali War of Unification gave the Moyenese in Fortaleza Dearborn an opportunity to throw off pretense, and the group declared themselves independent of the reign of the Tugali city-states. Unprecedented population growth and new farming innovations drawn from Aerumaen visitors alongside the discovery of coal allowed Dearborn to industrialize rapidly; this drew additional peoples into the city as more and more businesses developed and factories grew. Dearborn dispatched settlers up and down the river, reaching as far south as the Willamette Sea and as far north as the Amarillo Estuary Cataract in the north, a highly fertile land.
However, the factories led to the immense pollution of the Amarillo River, which negatively affected food growth on downstream farm plots and for fishermen on the Arawdielli coastline. Famine struck; thousands of people died, including king Illinico Henry Harrison, and the resulting power vacuum caused most of the outward Dearbornian colonies to revolt and declare their own independences. The Shecaguan War of Unification foresaw the complete destruction of the nation; most of the independent outer colonies were destroyed, their inhabitants slaughtered, while the city of Dearborn and its prosperous economic status were razed, including the citadel of Fortaleza Dearborn. No civilization inhabited the Amarillo River Valley for a number of decades in the future until Michael Turner Bluff founded a new Dearborn on the site of the old Dearborn's ruins, knowing both the felled Dearbornian state's history and the economic value of the city's old site. He named the new state as a combination of his mother's name (Jamie Cagua) and a "shuh" sound derived from the Aerumaen word "selishte," which means "settlement." Gaining the interest of doge Aguas II in Tugal and forging a tentative trade alliance with mob boss Akytí'p Goldeä in the Republic of Goba, Bluff successfully re-constructed the city and industrialized it (under strict environmental regulation) again. Bluff left the city to adopted daughter Baker Orovílla-Redding in his will. Orovílla-Redding severed official connections with Goldeä and Rayrames I and opened up Shecaguan markets to all people. When she discovered she was infertile, Orovílla-Redding organized mass elections and founded the Sears Asientu, who voted on her successor Charleton Adamanious as the president of the nation after her death. Adamanious made Shecagua's presence known and declared its supremacy among its region, which offended Djishura D'chmana, the holiest oracle of Ashurism and the head of the nation of Ashura-Chana; D'chmana issued the Decree Antichekak to rally the people against Adamanious and his people in the Dearborn War. The Blitz of Dearborn ended disastrously for Ashura-Chani forces and reflected on Adamanious' grandiose claims to Shecaguan greatness. Following the example of Tugali imperialism, Shecagua established the Protectorate of Halia Valley on continent Bianco on February 7, 2010.
