The Syrian National State (Arabic: الدولة الوطنية السورية) is a Turkish Satellite located in the Middle-East. The state borders the Italian Governorate of the Levant, the Republic of Iraq, the Protectorate of Mosul and Kerkuk and the Republic of Turkey.

The territory of the commonly called Syria is currently split between itself and Turkey, which, after putting Syria under their boot, annexed all of the northern provinces, from Al Hasakeh to Tartus passing by Halep, Syria's second biggest city.

During the Oil Crisis, Syria will firstly break away from the Turkish state, then sometimes devolve into a civil war between 3 different states.

History[edit | edit source]

Before WWII[edit | edit source]

Before the year of 1939 and the start of the Second World War, Syria was a French Protectorate taken from the Ottomans under the name of "First Syrian Republic" as part of the Sykes-Picot Agreement. The country was regularly abused, exploited and enslaved by French colonists and businesses, which saw a ripe market for profits. This resulted in an extreme rise of resistance activity, and most of all an improvement in Syrian resilience, nationalism and fighting capabilities.

During WWII[edit | edit source]

A liberation...[edit | edit source]

With the Fall of France in 1940, Syria was put under the supervision of the Vichy Collaboration government. However, the Allied invasion of Syria by British forces in the region pushed it into the hands of the Free French Republican Government once more.

Promised independence by the Germans quickly after this, a series of terrorist attacks against Allied Forces occured, kickstarting guerilla warfare against the Allies in the country. With Turkey joining the Axis and Italy pushing into Egypt, Syria was finally, truly liberated by their allies.

..and a betrayal[edit | edit source]

When Turkish forces entered the Al Azm Palace in Damascus to take over the government just after the end of the war, the Syrian people expected help from their German liberators; but the response they got, was silent.

In fact, a secret agreement between Turkish and German diplomats had been made shortly before Turkey's entry into the war, stipulating that Syria, which was once promised independence, was now to be under the Turkish boot.

It was in this chaos that the new Turkish administrators created the Syrian National State, and a new entity to govern it: the Council of the Syrian National State. Now robbed of their coastline and honor, the Syrians had no choice but to abandon their dreams of independence, or did they ?

In reality, this terrible defeat, accompanied with dashed dreams of independence forced many nationalists in Syria to unite and form the NASIL, the most prominent and powerful resistance group in Syria.

The Iraqi War[edit | edit source]

Due to the stalemate in the Iraqi War of 1952, Tayfur Sökmen, a Syrian official, devised a plan to attack Iraq from the West through their 360km border with them. This plan was proven to be extremely effective, contributing greatly in the Turkish victory, which resulted in the establishment of the Protectorate of Mosul and Kerkuk. Unfortunately, Tayfur Sökmen was assasinated shortly after by the NASIL.

And Today ?[edit | edit source]

Growing Resistance[edit | edit source]

The NASIL problem[edit | edit source]

At its formation, the NASIL group was identified as not a problem to the Syrian Council. But as the years passed, and with more nationalists flocking to their side, triggered by the lack of liberty given by the Turkish overlords, and now, with foreign support growing and

The Ba'athist problem[edit | edit source]

Like everywhere in the Middle-East, the Ba'athist movement, formed in 1940, is growing day by day and more restless, multiplying peaceful and violent actions throughout the Arab countries.

Tired by the constant enslaving by foreign imperialists, Syria has become a hotbed of Ba'athist followers. With the opposition rallying around the Hizb al-Ba'th al-Arabi al-Ishtiraki organisation, the Ba'athists have become a serious concern to fix and eradicate immediately in the eyes of the Council.

An Unstable Government[edit | edit source]

The Broken Council[edit | edit source]

The Council of the Syrian National State, even if officially called a federal council, is actually led by a quadrumvirate of highly esteemed military officers that[1] collaborate with the Turkish government. Even if their morals are different, they still agree on most policies as they follow authoritarian right-wing policies.

Adib al-Shishakli, director of the council, is also to note here. Corruption and manipulation, however, is growing deep into the roots of the council, and the Turkish government seems to do nothing about it..

Down South We Fear[edit | edit source]

What was once the Triumvirate is now but a time bomb that is approaching its explosion; and the Syrians will be the first one to feel the shock. The border between the Syrians and the Governatorato del Levante has recently started being one of the most militarised and defended borders in the entirety of the alliance. A war is approaching, and it seems that the Syrian people are heavily preparing for it too.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
