The Starland Revolution was a civil conflict in the Republic of Starland that was fought between the Starland People's Liberation Army (SPLA) and the Starland Imperial Army. The war began after a military coup, led by General Nik Hart overthrew the government wanting to establish a military junta to fix the ongoing political turmoil in the country. The Prime Minister, President, and Secretary of State were arrested (and later released) and the Senate suspended. The following morning, however, the General was overthrown in another coup which then took power and later that evening formed the Starland Empire. The General turned on the militia that turned on him by joining the exhiled federal republic and the SPLA. After several days of fighting, the Starland Imperial Army was defeated and the Emperess arrested. The SPLA moved to liberate the rest of the local territories while many other provinces simply dissolved and rejoined the United States or became colonies. This dramatically had an effect on Starland's population.
