The 2021 Des Plaines conflict, also known as the Weg-Rodentian war and the Great Des Plaines Valley War began following a coup d'état in the Republic of Rodentia on 5 March 2021 by Edward Oaches, who deposed the incumbent President, declared himself Emperor and installed marshal law.



Rodentia, formerly the Republic of Rodentia, was created in June of 2020 by Sinlo Chambell, who acted as its President from its founding until 5 March.


Coup d'état

On 5 March 2021, at 12:37 PM CST, it was announced that the Republic of Rodentia, located near the Des Plaines River, was overthrown by Edward Oaches. The government of Rodentia, as well as President Chambell, were deposed from power, and Edward declared marshall law within Rodentia. In an article from Wegmat General Broadcaster, Edward stated that

The socialist powers in the Rainbowlands[a] must leave within 30 days or we’ll make you leave, and the homeland countries of the Chaveleir Union and Wegmat mush remove socialist parties or face future consequences. If war must happen we wont stop at anything.

— Edward Oaches

Said article also reported that Rodentian forces were seen "mobilizing defensive positions across the Des Plaines River".[1]


On 5 March, Rodentian soldiers entered the city of Bobbygrad, occupying a building within the center of said city. Following the occupation Weg soldiers underneath the Wegmat Marines besieged the building until the Rodentian forces ran out of ammunition and retreated.[1][2]


On 6 March, the cities of Isadora, Evansville and Little Warsaw were evacuated due to a possible threat of invasion from Rodentia.[3] An E-4 warning was also sent out to these cities, indicating that invasion was imminent.

Rodentian forces invaded "a military base north of Little Warsaw" (probably Fort Jerome) around the same time;[2] within 6 hours it was announced that they were pushed out.


On 19 March, Rodentia, along with the Philmont Confederation, launched an invasion of the so-called Rainbowlands, which consisted of numerous plots managed by the Des Plaines Union. The coalition captured Hilda Highlands National Park, and by the end of the day the Rainbowlands were occupied. The occupation of the Rainbowlands resulted in a declaration of war by Ponderosa Hills on 25 March[4] and another by Tesforia sometime in late March. In April of 2021, the Commonwealth of Naveria and the Kingdom of Begon released their territories in the Rainbowlands.

New Germany

On 9 April, during a meeting between Prime Minister Cole Baird and Vladimir Baruh, the latter announced the reformation of the Empire of New Germany; following negotiations going nowhere, the Prime Minister was evacuated from Bobbygrad while New German soldiers seized numerous government buildings. Weg forces were then mobilized from Fort Priory to positions near Bobbygrad Priory Intermicronational Airport and the city of Westerwald; the latter serves as the de facto capital of the Free Syndical Republic of the Alley.
