The Altivebrian Civil War, known in Alconbria as the Alconbrian War of Independence was an armed conflict between the Union of Altivebrio and the Alconbrian-speaking people of the Territorio del Norte, which had declared themselves the Federal State of Alconbria.
The conflict began shortly after President Felipe de Curtis announced that Alconbrian-speaking people had to pay an inhabiting tax, along with a rise in their income taxes, and later Altivebrio closed it's borders to the Alconbrians, preventing them from seeking refuge in their neighbouring countries, especially Mexico. The situation worsened when the Legiones de Pureza massacred 1,400 Alconbrians in Puerto Pedro on New Years' Day, 1984.
Following the massacre, several guerrila and political separatist organizations united, leading to the formation of the Alconbria Liberation Council led by Major Antonio Durán. The Alconbrian Liberation Council established it's stronghold in the jungle city of Los Guez, and began it's guerilla military campaign on the 12th of January.
The Alconbrian militia easily swept through Territorio del Norte, thanks to the increased Altivebrian military attention to the Altivebrian-Mexican War. After intense fighting for 24 years, more than 70% of Altivebrio's territory came under the Alconbrian Liberation Council's control. In 2006, Alconbria achieved 94% recognition in the United Nations. After the economy of Altibebrio collapsed and various military defeats, President Servando García Goyena brought forward the Witholding Act, 2007 in the Altivebrian Parliament, which was passed with a vote standing of 200-0.
Seperation procedures began in January 2008, though the Altivebrians of would-be Alconbria were deported as early as September 2007. The Gvonn Pact, the treaty which removes all ties with Alconbria and Altivebrio, i.e, the treaty which finalizes the seperation was signed at the Independence Hall, Gvonn, with Paul del Santé representing the ALC and President Goyena representing Altivebrio.
The war tardished Altivebrio's international reputation, as it began persecuting Alconbrians shortly after the fighting began. The Altivebrian governemtn held Alconbrians hostage, requesting the surrender of the ALC. More than 900,000 Alconbrians civilians were killed, compared to 523,585 Altivebrian civilian casualities during the war.
- Main article: History of Alconbria
Altivebrio achieved independence from the Spanish Empire in 1828 after 322 years of colonization. At the time of independence, the Alconbrian people constituted for about 38% of the total population, which made them the second largest ethnic group inhibiting the newly found country.
Known to be a beacon of liberal and enlighted ideals, the Alconbrian people were always subjected towards persecution, right from the time of Spanish rule. King Tomás of the Altivebrian Empire enacted the Polvo Decree in 1842, which set the rules of de jure segregation of Alconbrians from the rest of the population. The decree set forth the required prerequisites for the forced eviction of Alconbrians from all over Altivebrio and isolate them in the Governorate of Alconbria, where their sacred city of Unforto rests. The governorate was annexed by Altivebrio during the First Altivebrian-Mexican War. This led to Altivebrio's Northern Territory being the center of operations of the Alconbrian minority, and became the home of several organizations, violent and non-violent.
Persecution reached the maximum during the reign of King Carlos, who had set up policies to forcibly convert Alconbrians 'back to' Christianity, prevent Alconbrians from holding property or public offices, and ressurected slavery by ordering his army to kidnap Alconbrians and use them as slaves, and then set up the Altivebrio Resources Company and profited from the slave trade, despite it being outlawed by both the Spanish and English empires.
The Alconbrians gained some sort of independence from the Altivebrians after the First Anglo-Altivebrian War, which led to the creation of British Altivebrio, an autonomous colony of the United Kingdom. The United Kingdom saw the rule over Alconbria as economically unviable, and considered giving it back to Altivebrio, but were stopped short when Amelia Bankwyn of the Alconbrian Society of England brought the entire colony from the Colonial Office, turning the colony into a British protected state. Altivebrio unsuccessfully tried to reclaim the land in 1900, but succesfully occupied the land in an another invasion, ending the partial statehood of the Alconbrians, and bought Alconbrians back under Altivebrian control. Miguel de Odeo, who was the President of Altivebrio at that time, tightened the persecution of Alconbrians.
Miguel de Odeo's daughter Delphia Guardiola was the de facto ruler of Altivebrio from 1951 till her death in 1972, and during her rule, enacted the worst of the anti-Alconbrian laws ever passed, and began the Limpieza, which ethnically cleansed Alconbrians from all over Altivebrio, and led to institualitionzed and industrial genocide of over 1.5 million Alconbrians. Just like King Carlos did a century ago, she pushed out all Alconbrians to the Northern Territory, creating a text-book Bantustan. This led to the devlopment of several militias and terrorist organizations in the Northern Territory, one of which kidnapped and executed Delphia in 1972. Following the end of the Limpieza in 1972, the Altivebrian government succumbed to the international pressure, and began the process of emancipating the Alconbrians, but the Alconbrians were left without several of the basic human rights, even 10 years after the death of Delphia de Odeo.
In 1984, Felipe de Curtis, the 24th President of Altivebrio, blamed Alconbrians for the stagnant economy and the failure in the conflict with Mexico, and began to establish restrictions on them, including forcibly arresting prominent Alconbrian politicians, allowed for the detention of Alconbrians without valid reasons, forced house demolitions, increased taxes, removed all social benefits, and forcibly prevented Alconbrians from holding offices in corporations or government institutions. The Legiones de Pureza, a far-right Altivebrian nationalist organization added fuel to the fire by massacring 1400 Alconbrians during New Year's Day celebrations in the Alconbrian-majority city of Puerto Pedro. Fed up, Antonio Durán and Emmanuel Jiménez proceeded to unite all Alconbrian political parties, militant organizations, civilian movements, labour unions, college groups and other such collectives, leading to the formation of the Alconbria Liberation Council and the ALC adopted the violent way to freedom, and attacked and captured the city of Los Guez on 14 January, 1984; leading to the start of the war.
