The name "Thracian Line" comes from edited versions of geographical areas of Europa. The word "Thrace" is taken from the area on Europa known as the Thrace Macula. The word "Linea" is taken from multiple area's of Europa, serving as a suffix. These names were respectively changed to the Thracian Line, to honor the nation's fascination with space.
The Thracian Line was founded on February 27th, 2016. The nation had been in the works for months prior to its official creation; starting as a faint idea in the back of Grand Chancellor Skylar's mind 2 years ago. 2 years later, him and some close-friends decided to act upon the idea. After collecting a small amount of followers, Grand Chancellor Skylar, Chief Senator Danny, Defense Marshal Jordan, and Director-General Connor put forth the effort to create the nation, create national symbols, and to create a website. The course of this took about two weeks, finally be ready on February 27th.
On December 10th, 2016, The people of the Thracian Line decided to swiftly change their country from a dictatorship to a single-party communist state. Many inactive and impeding individuals were terminated from government positions and new people were appointed for such positions. Many changes were made to the governing system and military structure; like the removal of the secret police; instead changing them into a form of military police.
