PostSubject: Islamic Conference   7/5/2017, 12:50

Islamic Conference
At its peak, the Islamic Conference, or Organisation of Islamic Cooperation as it was sometimes called, claimed 57 members across multiple continents. The Sundering put an end to this, with the African member countries being cut off and forced to commit fully to the AU and several member countries in Asia and Africa being conquered by the invaders.

IC is the only international body that is at war with five Mithbari regions at once. Viewing the invasions from Arcadia, Idurat, Fidessa, KwaZulu, and Sambala forces as an insult to their religion, they have declared jihad against those nations, even though governments and businesses will not allow such details to get in the way of trade and profit.

Arab League
The countries of the Arab League were already considering forming a federation before the Sundering of the planet. The sudden change in power forced the decision and by 2015 CE, Bahrain, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, the United Arab Emirates, and Yemen had joined forces politically, economically and militarily.

Their combined forces quickly devastated Israel, a country left with no overseas allies in the global turmoil. While this gained them notoriety, their great wealth and oil reserves quickly helped the Arab League to reclaim its status in the global market. Except for the elite of emirs, imams, and generals, the majority lives in pretty much the same way it did in the previous centuries.

Azer Hayk
The countries of Armenia and Azerbaijan were not members of IC initially, but the shift in global power forced them to seek allies in order to survive. Content to remain sovereign nations till then, the two countries were devastated by an earthquake in 2034 CE that destroyed them almost completely. United under a single banner, they took their place in the IC a decade later.

While the two countries united under ancient names, they are the most advanced member country of the IC in terms of culture and the people enjoy the comforts of modern life. Rich in oil and gas, the country relies on international trade for most of its wealth, serving as the trade centre for all of IC. Due to their lifestyle, they are viewed with distrust by many of their allies.

Iran
Perhaps the oldest countries in the IC, Iran was also the centre for all political power in the outfit. Armed with nuclear weapons at the time of the Sundering, it employed them in a futile attempt to attack Sambala and was devastated by the fallout. For many decades after that, the country was a wasteland, trying to rebuild itself in the new world that emerged.

In the decades that followed, Iran reinvented itself as the cultural heart of the IC, using its status among the Islamic countries to fuel their hate against all Mithbari regions and Sambala in particular. Without its nuclear arsenal or know-how, Iran has lost much of its bite but has turned to more insidious means of attacking the enemies of the Islamic Conference.

Ottoman Empire
Turkey saw a all its Aegean shores conquered by the armies of Arcadia during the Sundering. In the decades that followed, the island of Cyprus sank under the waters and half its population found shelter in mainland Turkey. With its territories greatly reduced, the country saw these disasters as divine punishment and reinvented itself as an Islamic nation.

A major player in the region, the new Ottoman Empire tests the strength of Arcadia's eastern borders almost constantly, while it serves as the IC's military arm. Ruled by a military elite in theory, the country is actually a theocracy and the priesthood dictates everyday life. Most of its citizens live in rural areas or are conscripted in the army, fuelled by religious zeal.

Turkic Council
It took the invasion of several of their neighbours before the Turkic countries of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan decided to band together for mutual protection. Originally a subset of the IC, the Turkic Council turned into a federation circa 2035 CE, after the earthquakes that devastated the region and changed the land.

Each country is treated as a separate state but all answer to a single government and they pool their resources for the good of the TC. The various tribes that make up the population maintain their national identities but have come to think of the whole of TC as their country instead of the previously existed entities. They serve as the production centre of the IC.
