Greater Roscam, officially known as the Province of Greater Roscam, is one of the four provinces of Roscamistan. Greater Roscam was founded on the 13th of May 2021. It is bordered by Oranmore in the east and Mervustan to the west.
The Province of Greater Roscam first began life as the Region of Roscam, alongside the Regions of Dougiska and Oranmore, and it was only in May 2021, before the 17thMayCoup, that the three regions merge together as the Province of Greater Roscam, and has remained that size since.
On 25 November 2021, the province was given devolution, with the position of Prime Minister of Greater Roscam being created. Thomas Jacobs became the first Prime Minister, and Culann Burke became the Deputy Prime Minister of Greater Roscam.
RLF-Greater Roscam war
In January 2022, the Roscam Liberation Front, which founded Roscamistan was declared protected by the devolved government in Roscam City. In response the Central Government in the national capital Galway City declared it would suspend the devolved government over this. In February 2022, the Roscam Liberation Front went rogue, removing President Thomas Jacobs as its supreme commander and declaring itself to overthrow the government. This started the 2022 RLF-Greater Roscam war, which saw the Roscamistan Volunteer Force fight the Front for around a week. With assistance from the Ballinfoylish army, the Front alongside its ally the Ballinfoylish Syndicalist Front was defeated.
In late 2022 the parliamentary system was dissolved and replaced by a presidential government. The office of Prime Minister of Greater Roscam was abolished and its powers transferred to the Governor.
In January 2023, opposition rebel groups organised themselves the South Galwegian Republican Army, which declared the then-region of Oranmore as the unrecognised South Galwegian Democratic Republic. In response to this, Defence Secretary Jan Kotoński announced martial law in the province. The National Army was sent to Oranmore, with minor scuffles occurring between it and the rebels.
The region of Oranmore was separated to become its own province in February 2023. The war continued even after this, with it ending on the 26th.
After Roscamistan became a federation in June 2023, Greater Roscam remained unchanged, as one of the four provinces of Roscamistan. The Province also became entitled to send one provincial deputy to the newly made National Congress. Thomas Jacobs was elected unopposed as the 1st deputy from the province.
