The coup

On 1 April 2016, Smyrna and Fitberland have created the "Co-Principality of New Occitania". This one claims to be sole representative of the territories controled by the Popular Union of Occitania. It was founded as a co-principality and the co-princes are Raul I (Fitberland) and Victor III (Smyrna). Gardeland and Entrôpia recognize the rebels as the legitimate government. During four days, the Occitan government does not respond, preferring to hide the coup. On 6 April, the rebels surrender, because of the international support to the legal government. During the coup attempt, the People's Army of Occitania had controlled 100% of the territory. Now Smyrna are recognized as a terrorist organization by the P.U.O, because they wanted to overthrow the legitimate government. Fitberland had the same status before signing the peace treaty.
