Cahokia, the urban center of the pre-Columbian Mississippian culture, was located near present-day Collinsville, Illinois. That civilization vanished circa 1400–1500 for unknown reasons. The next major power in the region was the Illiniwek Confederation, a political alliance among several tribes. The Illiniwek gave Illinois its name. The Illini suffered in the 17th century as Iroquois expansion (caused by European expansion in the eastern United States) forced them to compete with several tribes for land. The Illini were replaced in Illinois by the Potawatomi, Miami, Sauk, and other tribes.
French explorers Jacques Marquette and Louis Jolliet explored the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers in 1673. As a result of their exploration, the Illinois Country was part of the French empire until 1763, when it passed to the British. The area was ceded to the new United States in 1783 and became part of the Northwest Territory.In 1839, members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, also known as Mormons, created a settlement they called Nauvoo. The city, situated on a prominent bend along the Mississippi River, quickly grew to 12,000 inhabitants, and was for a time rivaling for the title of largest city in Illinois. By the early 1840s, the LDS church built a large stone temple in Nauvoo, one of the largest buildings in Illinois at the time, which was completed in 1846. In 1844, the founder of the Latter Day Saint movement Joseph Smith, Jr. was assassinated in nearby Carthage, Illinois, even though he was under the protection of Illinois judicial system, with assurances of his safety from then Governor Ford. In 1846, the Mormons under Brigham Young left Illinois for what would become Utah, but what was still then Mexican territory. A small breakaway group remained, but Nauvoo fell largely into abandonment. Nauvoo today has many restored buildings from the 1840s.
The Jera Empire was started as just a hobbist micronation in November 2012, The Jera Empire has been critize for its leader, Jerapocalpse since he has no "Y" in his apocalypse part of his name. Simply a brief response from the Emperor "The why has no value in the fake word anyway, so what does it matter." The Nation originaly named after the Emperor, as the Jerapocalpse Empire but has changed since then to just "The Jera Empire" The Jera Empire was originally part of the Freyan Commonwealth but later was kicked out by a majority vote becuase it differed views in the commonwealth. The Jera Empire has fought and is still fighting the United Soviet States of America in two wars. Those wars being simply called USSA-Jera Empire War and Second USSA-Jera Empire war. The Jera Empire has gone through many hardships, but still stands as a micronation today. The Jera Empire started the Federation Coalition of Nations Also criticized for its name, not apparently making sense. (Speaking it slow makes everything sound weird.) The Jera Empire also has made its own constitution in January 2013. (In Update due to name change) Through all this history the Jera Empire has made an impact on some micronations, this including The Doberman Island Republic in which Emperor Jerapocalpse had at the time thought of a well made out plan called "Operation H-War" The H standing for Homosexual because at the time, a politician of the Doberman Island Republic was found out to be Homosexual, in which a state of the Doberman Island Republic that presumes its catholic religion had sought out genocide, but was later stopped because of "Operation H-War"
The Jera-Empire's Military is trained in a Militia style format with practice with lesser weapons and moving on to stronger weapons. The obvious benefit to the empire in maintaining armed forces is in providing protection from foreign threats and from internal conflict. In recent wars armed forces personnel have also been trained in case of needed emergency civil support roles in post-disaster situations. On the other hand, they may also harm the Empire by engaging in counter-productive (or merely unsuccessful) warfare. Expenditure on science and technology to develop weapons and systems sometimes produces side benefits, although some claim that greater benefits could come from targeting the money directly into the armed forces.
Currently the Standards of the Armed Forces is little too no troops, but providing time will change that fate. The Jerapocalpse Empire has only fought one war and is fighting another. They show extreme power against their current enemy because of their technologies against the opposition. With new technologies such as Airsoft-RCs becoming available the Empire still commits to having a formal fighting force.
The Jera-Empire has spared cost by having the soldier provide money before enlisting for equipment and other gear. The current necessary gear is in options for affordability. In Option one the soldiers can wear a jacket (Black, Brown, Green, or Gray) and woodland pants (Needs to look the same as everyone else Woodland) and if the soldier wishes to be protected by vest, he can purchase any he/she would like at own cost. Option two soldiers have to wear woodland shirt and pants(Needs to look the same as everyone else) and if the soldier wishes to be protected by vest, he can purchase any he/she would like at own cost.
