New Lincoln is a country located on the main content of the planet, along the coast in the east. It consists of 10 states. New Lincoln borders Nordica to the north and west, Westburg and Terra del Cibo on the east, and the Palencian Ocean to the south.
New Lincoln was formed in 1669 when the people of the Isles of Lincoln wanted to take over the world. The conquerors sailed from the Isles of Lincoln and decided to claim what is current day New Lincoln, Westburg, and Ulster. The conquerors were successful in taking over the land and New Lincoln was a part of the Lincoln Empire for a while after.
In 1792, New Lincoln attempted to become independent, but they did not succeed. After this independence attempt, New Lincoln didn't have any big events occur. That is, until 1851. In 1851, the people of the current day country of Ulster wanted to become independent. Ulster consulted the government and they peacefully received independence. Later on, in 1854 the area of current day Westburg was growing increasingly unhappy with the way New Lincoln was being governed as well. New Lincoln did not want to peacefully give up any more land. As a result, the people of the area decided to revolt and attempt at becoming independent in 1854. Westburg won the war in 1855 and were granted independence as a city-state. Afterwards, the government of New Lincoln decided they wanted to attempt to leave the Lincoln Empire as a whole again and they were successful this time and became independent in 1860. Since then, there have not been any major conflicts involving New Lincoln.
