The name Jakania originated as a medieval diminutive of the name "Jackin" (earlier Jankin) alternatively it can be interpreted from the name Jacques, which is the French form of the name Jacob. It is Celtic in origin, meaning "Healthy, Strong, Full of Vital Energy" (compare the Welsh word iach, "health"), from a putative Ancient British Jakkios.
The earliest known evidence of human presence in the area now known as Jakania was that of Homo antecessor, dating to approximately 780,000 years ago. The oldest proto-human bones discovered in The United Kingdom date from 500,000 years ago. Modern humans are known to have first inhabited the area during the Upper Paleolithic period, though permanent settlements were only established within the last 6,000 years. After the last ice age only large mammals such as mammoths, bison and woolly rhinoceros remained. Roughly 11,000 years ago, when the ice sheets began to recede, humans repopulated the area; genetic research suggests they came from the northern part of the Iberian Peninsula. The sea level was lower than now, and Britain was connected by land to both Ireland and Eurasia. As the seas rose, it was separated from Ireland 10,000 years ago and from Eurasia two millennium later.
This began on March 2nd 2013 when the old Empire of Jakania was founded; the nation grew in their diplomacy and military, until May 2013 when Tiberius I declared war on Hoogwaard, to assist the former nation Vietlaos (Now Tiapan). 'Operation: Zalgo' was the attack launched on Hoogwaard, it consisted of a normal Jakanian Imperial Broadcasting Channel News introduction followed by an abrupt scream with a Zalgofied MLP Character. It failed completely.
The Empire degraded into turmoil in May-June 2013 when conspiracy theories emerged about Emperor Tiberius I being a Totalitarian Dictator who severely abuses his power. The Green Party was in power at this time, which followed 'Byerist' principles - which were Green Politics under Authoritarian rule. Tiberius assured the public as well as members of the MicroWiki Community that it was completely false, and that he wouldn't abuse his power - the Prosperity Party of Jakania decided to commit treason against Tiberius I and the Government. Tiberius I agreed with the Government to forcefully disband the Prosperity Party, leading Joseph Kennedy of the Ashukovo Federation (Although he didn't fight on their behalf, but on the Prosperity Party or the Jihadi Rebels), Luke Walker of Vietlaos, Jeremy Kloth of the Jera Empire and Hasan Cakar of the Republic of Hasanistan (Again fighting on the behalf of the Jihadi Rebels) to declare war on the Empire.
The Monarchist League were considering entering the war on the side of the Empire but decided against it because they agreed with Tiberius that it was completely useless, initially. Emperor Tiberius eventually became quite annoyed with the Civil War and agreed to disband the Absolute Monarchy, thus establishing the Imperial Republic of Jakania. Joseph Kennedy decided to annex Jakania on the behalf of the Jera Empire, causing the collapse of Jakania. The Empire of Viitun was established in its place, but quickly disbanded as Jakania was liberated by Jeremy Kloth as the Federal Imperial Republic of Jakania.
Since then Jakania has operated as a virtual nation that has spiraled into rapid decline and complete inactivity, the state the nation has been in since the Civil War, to the point were it is currently almost non existent. The Emperor has since abandoned all ties of Jakania to the real world since the end of the Civil War and as it went defunct as an independent nation, the Jera Empire annexed all of its remaining virtual territories.
