The Srbozemskan Civil War was a civil war fought between 4 March 2019 and 13 April 2019. It was triggered by a successful coup d'état plotted by Florian elements in government institutions, most importantly the police and military. Government forces, supported by Krasnocorian Armed Forces and two paramilitaries, Nídobhá's Wolves and 5th of October Army, clashed with United National Party of the Republic of Srbozemska led by Jack Lane, it's leader.


The territory of Srbozemska and Krasnocorian province of Srbozemlje are described by many as the most politically unstable region on Micras (with exception of the Florian Republic itself). The region have faced two crises (Srbozemlje and Nohavland) and a war. In all occasions it was fought between Florians, who as a minority ruled over the majority of Serbs, who wanted bigger autonomy from Florian Republic. Florians, with the fact of accepting such conditions would result in eventual independence of so-called 'Floroserbian lands', installed a more authoritarian, oppresive government, which led to ethnic conflicts.

Coup d'état



  • 4th

  • 6th
    • Motorised infantry from the 121st Division, passing through a narrow defile, encounter a series of roadblocks formed of felled-trees and boulders. Unidentified insurgents, disguised as forestry workers and herdsmen, observing the forward elements of the column coming to a halt, unleashed a barrage of heavy mortar fire. As troops jumped from their halted armoured personnel carriers and trucks, some to establish a defensive perimeter whilst others rushed forward to attempt to dismantle the barricade, further boulders and tree trunks are rolled down from the slopes above, this time directed at the vehicles at the rear of the convoy - some of which were attempting to reverse back out of the defile.

  • 1st
    • Estimated remaining strength of insurgent forces after deaths, injuries, and desertions over the preceding month: 504 commandants (field officers), 1,512 sub-commandants (junior officers), 7,564 section leaders (non-commissioned officers) and 60,496 militia and other volunteer fighters. ESB advisory team not thought to exceed 120 personnel. Unknown number of Black Travellers, Gupneks, and Hasanis, engaged in illicit activities in government held areas.

    • A chartered commercial aircraft lands at Niš Airport. Disassembled electronic components and sealed crates are seen being loaded aboard whilst heavy chests, marked in Praeta with the words Gulþ crudely stencilled on their sides, are dumped onto the tarmac.


The motivations for ESB involvement in the entire affair proved ultimately to be typically opaque. Certainly a landlocked region surrounded by ungoverned spaces and hostile governments was not a promising market into which to invest any quantifiable amount of time and effort. The most likely explanation is that the brief period of instability represented an opportunity for the "Honourable Company" to conduct a smash and grab on the weaponry, machine-tools, and design templates left over from the brief period of Nohavland (and its successor states) flirtation with developing an independent manufacturing capacity outside the orbit of the Raspur Pact and USSO.
