NEOCON delivers a deadline for Doren's withdrawal from Konig by January 1, 2081. Doren refuses the ultimatum.


January 1 - Hostilities commence between the Combined Provinces of Doren and the nations of NEOCON, beginning the Second Continental War, otherwise known as the Doren War.

The nations of NEOCON, led by the GKU, declare 'a world without borders' and embark on a campaign of world conquest which begins the Great Kerbin War. The war is fought between the forces of NEOCON on one side and the combined forces of the United Front and Third Way on the other.

Operation Shadow Realm commences as the largest air battle in history, with about 2,500 fighter aircraft participating, resulting in GKU victory and the collapse of the Third Way Alliance.


The Redemption Project is completed, dissolution of the Spearkan Federation.

April - The Nautilus-Comberth Treaty is signed, ending the Great Kerbin War. The outcome of the war is indecisive; while NEOCON fails to achieve its objective of world conquest, its enemies are unable to substantially weaken the alliance. Consequences of the war include the end of the Greater Kerbin Union and the formation of its successor state, the United Continental Federation; the formation of the Arkadii - Zokesian Federation, and the foundation of the World Assembly.

General Vikus is declared the God Emperor of Kerbalkind as the UCF evolves into the Imperium.


May - The Coalition for Supranational Democracy - a large, multinational democratic alliance - is created, including both NEOCON and non-NEOCON members. Within the Coalition, an anti-Zokesian alliance is formed between Vocavium, Atlas, North Grestin, and the HKA. Anti-Zokesian sentiment had been growing around the world as a result of the extreme policies of the Grail regime; the alliance now intervened to end the ongoing Zokesian genocide and topple that regime, commencing an air and naval campaign which became known as the Zokesian blockade, with the eventual goal of launching a ground invasion of Zokesia. Zokesia's NEOCON partners do not intervene, but maintain a stance of benevolent neutrality towards the embattled nation.

September - Nuvalka is formed

December - The Zokesian Phosphor fleet is interned by the neutral Imperium at the port of the island of Korfu. In retaliation for the Zokesian bombardment of Moho, North Grestin's Battlefleet Kerbol conducts a missile bombardment of the small island from orbit, destroying the fleet and inflicting heavy damage on the island. In response, the Tau Coalition begins an undelcared war against North Grestin, beginning the first phase of the series of conflicts which would eventually become known as the System War, and directly precipitating the outbreak of the Great Crusade.

Era of Continued Strife

Just kill me


The first phase of the System War ends with the banishment of Grestin's space forces from the Kerbin system and the destruction of Battlefleet Kerbol. Formerly Grestin - occupied Minmus is returned to Zokesian control.

February - Tensions mount between the nations of NEOCON and the non - NEOCON nations of the CSD in the aftermath of the Korfu strikes, as the anti-Zokesian coalition refuses to repudiate Grestin's actions. Tekkia's redirection of an asteroid strike originally intended for and militarily neutral Tekkia towards Zokesia proved to be the final straw which convinced the nations of NEOCON to intervene on Zokesia's behalf, beginning the Second Great Kerbin War, otherwise known as the Kolus War, or the Great Crusade.


The Second Great Kerbin War ends indecisively. The last active front of the conflict, the Imperium landing in Westray, ends with a Kroman-Imperial ceasefire. However, the consequences of the war are far - reaching, as in its wake, the three most important super-national organisations on Kerbin - the CSD, World Assembly, and NEOCON - are all dissolved.

In the course of the Great Crusade, the government of New Grestin re-establishes control over most of its Kafrican territory in a countercoup against the North Grestin Confederacy. The remnants of the North Grestin Confederacy flee off-world, establishing the Valorian Confederation. The Confederation immediately begins the rapid conquest of the inner systems; Moho, Eve, and Duna are all captured in quick succession.

Avalon's invasion of neighboring Elysium results in a decisive victory, followed by Elysium's annexation.

March - The Valorian Battlefleet Venus launches a surprise attack on the colony of New Comberth in the Imperial - controlled Munar Congressional Republic; the Tau Coalition declares war on Valoria, beginning the second phase of the System War.


February - Valoria surrenders unconditionally to Tau Coalition forces. The Treaty of Gilly dissolves the Valorian state, and all former Valorian territory is occupied by the Imperium. Some Valorian units refuse to surrender, forming the Valorian Republican Army and beginning the third phase of the System War - the Valorian insurgency.

Avalon subjugates its neighbors Azenia and the NKS, relegating both as puppet states; after refusing vassalization, Osini is conquered and occupied by Avalon.

2.5 million kerbal 'undesirables,' presumed missing from the south Kolus regions in the 2080s, are recovered by Imperial forces on the surface of Moho, revealing the Mohocaust genocide.


Queen-Empress Ella II of Zokesia marries God Emperor Vikus of the Imperium; afterwards, Ella's ascension as post-war Zokesia's head of state de facto unites each empire as a dual monarchy.
