Estonia has been classified as northern European, but still thinks they are Nordic. Estoniaball has seen many horrid things in their life, but still has come out mostly content, if not, truly happy. But, they will into UN-icon UNball security council in future, along with many other countries like Romania-icon Romaniaball and India-icon Indiaball, etc. The elections will happen in 2019.

History

Ancient Era (appr. 9000 BCE - 1218)

Estoniaball is Finno-Uralic. They are known to have descended from the ancient Uralball, who left the Urals around 11 000 BCE. Uralball split into numerous countryballs, two of whom decided to go further into Siberia (Nenets-icon Nenetsball, Khanty-Mansi-icon Khanty-Mansiball), the Finnicball that went westward also split, some Finnic countryballs reside in what is now Russia-icon Russiaball (Mari El-icon Mari Elball, Udmurtia-icon Udmurtiaball) and Hungary-icon Hungaryball that left the Urals millennia later and went to live with Hun-icon Hunball for some time before their conquest in Central Europe.

Europe was basically uninhabited until 9000 BCE, when Finnicball settled first in what is now Estonia-icon Estoniaball. Their grand cultural heritage tells the story of how Finland-icon Finlandball was born: Those Estonia-icon Estoniaballs that were deemed to unintelligent by Estonia-icon Estoniaball chieftains were deported North. But Finland was still intact in culture and language, as its badly organised empire of chiefdoms' borders managed to extend from what is now Novgorodball to Scotland-icon Scotlandball (settled by Finnicballs from Saaremaa) and from Samiball to what is now Poland-icon Polandball before the introduction of Indo-Aryan country balls to Europe.

By miracle, the asiatic-looking Finnicball (1ball) gradually turned into a darkish blonde 2ball. In time with the populous increase of Indo-European countryballs in Europe, Finnicball's borders were pushed back, maintaining nowaday Finland-icon Finlandball, Estonia-icon Estoniaball, Latvia-icon Latviaball and some of Lithuaniaball. Through the centuries small differences started developing between Finnicball chiefdom speech, becoming different languages and giving birth to Estonia-icon, Finland-icon Finlandball and Livoniansball.

Estonia-icon Estoniaball was feared by Russia-icon Russiaball and Sweden-icon Swedenball (Vikingball) for brutally crushing their attempts at invasion and by ransacking and burning down their settlements in return for their intrusive ambitions. Estonia-icon Estoniaball didn't know about agriculture until approximately 900-1000 CE, when her chiefdoms slowly started adopting Christianity. Foreign missionaries mainly from Denmark-icon Denmarkball baptised Estonia-icon Estoniaball and taught her about growing crops. Before starting ploughing fields, Estonia-icon Estoniaball herded aurochs and horses. Lithuaniaball had already pushed Finlandball out of Lithuaniaball by that time, Lithuaniaballs intermingled with Livoniansballs and Latvia-icon Latviaball was born. Estonia-icon Estoniaball forged Damascus steel from bog iron and sold it to Sweden-icon Swedenball, costing them a lot of silver, from which Estonia-icon Estoniaball could scrape hõbevalge (Silver dust), which was believed to have medicinal benefits.

In the 13th century the Teutonic Orderball needed new territories after great losses in the Crusades, so he claimed Estonia-icon Estoniaball wasn't Christian and needs to be baptised again. That seemed like a ridiculous allegation for Estonia-icon Estoniaball. She got upset and denied him. Thus the Teutonic Orderball and its branch, the Livonian Order-icon Livonian Orderball started a war with Estonia-icon Estoniaball, later joined by Denmark-icon Denmarkball, Sweden-icon Swedenball and Russia-icon Russiaball. During the Muistne vabadusvõitlus (Ancient Struggle for Freedom) a couple of Estonia-icon Estoniaball nobles pledged allegiance to Denmark-icon Denmarkball and continued ruling afterwards, serving the Denmark-icon Denmarkball cause. Estonia-icon Estoniaball lost their lands and their freedom after two decades of defending against them to the Livonian Order-icon Livonian Orderball and Denmark-icon Denmarkball. Thus Estonia-icon Estoniaball grew to hate Christianity.

Era of Terra Mariana

After a century of hard labour, repressions and high taxes, Estonia-icon Estoniaball revolted in 1343-1345, later deemed Jüriöö ülestõus (Uprising of St. George's Night). Estonia-icon Estoniaball burned down hundreds of fortresses and manors. Denmark-icon Denmarkball couldn't suppress the uprisings, so he sold his Estonia-icon Estoniaball territories to Livonian Order-icon Livonian Orderball, who decided to hold negotiations with the chosen four kings of Estonia-icon Estoniaball. The Livonian Order-icon Livonian Orderball demanded all Estonia-icon Estoniaballs, who were guilty of murdering the monks of Padise monastery, be put to the sword, for which Estonia-icon Estoniaball can have back its own rule. Estonia-icon Estoniaball refused to kill his own brethren, for which the kings were butchered at the negotiating table and soon after the peasant armies with lowered morale were crushed as well one by one.

In 1558, Russia-icon Russiaball demanded Tartuball to pay debts from three centuries ago, when Tartu-icon Tartuball was conquered and ruled over by Russia-icon Russiaball for some years while Muistne vabadusvõitlus was going on. Tartu-icon Tartuball refused to pay, so Russia-icon Russiaball attacked, starting Liivi sõda (Livonian War). Russia-icon Russiaball had almost taken all of Estonia-icon Estoniaball and wanted to install the prince of Denmark-icon Denmarkball as the vassal ruler, when Sweden-icon Swedenball landed in Tallinn-icon Tallinnball and took North of Estonia-icon Estoniaball away from Russia-icon Russiaball. Poland-icon Polandball conquered South of Estonia-icon Estoniaball and Denmark-icon Denmarkball kept Saaremaa. Thus Liivi sõda ended in 1583.

Era of Swedish Rule

Sweden-icon Swedenball managed to get all of Estonia-icon Estoniaball under her control via treaties after Liivi sõda. Swedenball was Lutheran, meaning felt the need for illiterate peasants to be able to read and comprehend the word of God, which is why Swedenball tried to push through many reforms (she even founded a gymnasium in Tallinn-icon Tallinnball in 1631 and an academy in Tartu-icon Tartuball in 1632 that were meant for people from all statuses, although that didn't take effect), but the Germany-icon Germanyball noble descendants of the Livonian Order-icon Livonian Orderball were too stubborn and unenlightened to see the need to fund the proposed parochial primary schools nor write down and standardise the Estonian language. Before Põhjasõda (Northern War) Sweden-icon Swedenball started the reduction, reclaiming fiefs granted to the nobility. That turned many nobles against Sweden-icon Swedenball's rule and the nobility started conspiring against it.

At the start of Põhjasõda, Sweden-icon Swedenball had a major advance against Denmark-icon Denmarkball, Poland-icon Polandball and Russia-icon Russiaball. Denmark-icon Denmarkball surrendered immediately and Poland-icon Polandball was crushed without haste. But as time passed, Sweden-icon Swedenball became too greedy and finally began losing battle after battle to Russia-icon Russiaball. Thus, by 1710 Russia-icon Russiaball had conquered all of Estonia-icon Estoniaball.

Era of Russian Rule

For a whole century, little changed in the abysmal conditions in which Estonia-icon Estoniaball had to live. Crop failures led to numerous famines, hundreds of women miscarried, most deaths were caused by malnourishment, cholera, typhus, dysentery and tuberculosis. Parochial primary schools started slowly popping up around the country and Estoniaball became literate in an instance. The first printed Bible in keskmurre (1739), the academy in Tartu-icon Tartuball founded by Sweden-icon Swedes (1802), the abolishment of serfdom (1816-19), Estoniaball peasants beginning to attend Tartu Ülikool (University of Tartu), Õpetatud Eesti Selts (Learned Estonian Society) (founded by Estonia-icon Estoniaball students and Germany-icon Germanyball estophiles) (1838), and the material for the national epic of Kalevipoeg (Kalevide aka Son of Kalev) are the most known examples of 18th and 19th century Estonian literature. Estonia-icon Estoniaball peasants were given surnames derived from either the name of their farmstead or father, their occupation, their appearance or their characteristic or any of those mentioned translated to German. Estonia-icon Estoniaball started documenting all of her culture. Estonia-icon Estoniaball began buying back her farmstead lands from Germany-icon Germanyball nobility, taking part in local politics and cultivating parochial choral and instrumental music, which led to the long tradition of the Estonian Song and Dance Festival since 1869.

With the start of Russification, Estonia-icon Estoniaball national movement was outlawed and Estonian wasn't allowed to be spoken in schools. Germany-icon Germanyball governor was replaced with a Russia-icon Russiaball governor and Russia-icon Russiaball tried to convert Estonia-icon Estoniaball into orthodoxy. After the revolution of 1905, some bans were either lifted or loosened. In 1917 the old Russiaball collapsed and the new Russiaball granted autonomy for Estonia-icon Estoniaball. Within a small period in February 1918, when Russia-icon Russiaball forces retreated from the arriving Germanyball forces and no foreign power was stationed there, Estonia-icon Estoniaball declared independence.

Era of Independence

In November 1918 Germanyball surrendered to the Triple Entente and that left Estonia-icon Estoniaball to face Russian SFSRball alone. But Estonia-icon Estoniaball didn't give up, she rallied and mobilised everyone she could and with the help of Finland-icon Finlandball volunteers and a couple UKball destroyers, Estonia-icon Estoniaball struck the Russiaball offence as far as St. Petersburgball and liberated Latvia-icon Latviaball, which had been completely taken by the Reds. Vabadussõda (War of Independence) ended in February 1920. Estonia-icon Estoniaball had a hard time in politics. There were too many parties with similar, but still very different ideologies and all the politicians corrupt. In 1933 Eesti Vabadussõjalaste liit aka Vapsid (Union of Participants in the Estonian War of Independence) demanded that the duties of a prime minister and a president should be separated (until then, those duties were carried out by Riigivanem aka State Elder) and that the presidential elections should be popular, not parliamentary. Estonia-icon Estoniaball didn't really prosper until Vaikiv ajastu (Silent Era), which started when Estonia-icon Estoniaball declared martial law because of the threat that Vapsid might stage a coup d'état. Thus Estonia-icon Estoniaball became an authoritarian regime.

Estonia-icon Estoniaball exported grain, dairy, meat, poultry and confectioneries as far as the United States, Estonia-icon Estoniaball also exported fabric, fine crystal, lime-silica bricks, logs, paper, phosphorite-based fertiliser and oil shale-based petroleum.

World War II

After the signing of MRP in August 1939, Estonia-icon Estoniaball was approached by Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball, who offered to guarantee their protection and neutrality in the inevitable war. Estonia-icon Estoniaball accepted the offer and fell immediately under Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball influence. In June 1940 Juunipööre (Revolution of June) happened and the Estonian SSR-icon Estonian SSRball was founded. What followed were mass executions and the deportation to Siberian Labour Camps with everyone being accused of either helping or siding with bourgeoisie Estonia-icon Estoniaball. Hundreds flocked on any sort of watercraft to emigrate to Sweden-icon Swedenball to escape punishment. All businesses and factories were nationalised and all farmsteads were ordered to join into kolhoosid or sovhoosid (Collectives). In June 1941 Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball ordered juuniküüditamine (June Deportation) to get rid of hostiles to the regime. Approximately 10,000 out of the diminutive Estonia-icon Estoniaball population of 1,000,000 were all put on animal wagons overnight and sent to various GULAG labour camps across Siberia-icon Siberiaball without delay, separating thousands of families. The majority of men were massacred at their arrival at GULAG. The women and children had to do hard labour in mining or logging. It is estimated that the number of casualties juuniküüditamine is around 6,000.

In August 1941 Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball occupeid Estonian SSR-icon Estonian SSRball and reorganised it into an Eastern territory. Estonia-icon Estoniaball was allowed to publicly display the Estonian tricolour and sing the Estonian anthem once again. Estonia-icon Estoniaball had its own self-administration and battalions. When Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball was retreating from the Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball forces, the de jure Estoniaball cabinet that had been in hiding formed a new cabinet, hoping to replicate the same trick done in 1918 when declaring independence. The new cabinet asked recognition from the Western Allies but got no response. Half of the cabinet fled to Sweden-icon Swedenball, where the Estonia-icon Estonian de facto Government-in-exile was founded. Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball returned in September 1944. Thus Estonia-icon Estoniaball vanished from the world map going into exile in Swedenball with recognition only from USA-icon USAball.

Era of Soviet Rule

With the return of Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball, thousands were tortured and punished for having helped Nazi-icon Nazi Germanyball in any way. Hundreds joined the fascist terrorist movement Metsavennad (Forest Brothers) hiding themselves in the woods. Collectivisation was reinstated. In 1949 Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball ordered märtsiküüditamine (March Deportation aka Operation Прибой) to once again get rid of more hostiles. Approximately 22 500 were deported by animal and cargo wagons overnight to GULAG. With many kulaks deported, who were a source of food for Metsavennad, the terrorist movement perished.

As Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball lost its totalitarian dictator in 1953, Estonian SSR-icon Estonian SSRball was hoping of gradually achieving sovereignty through political activism. The youth started joining Komsomol (Young Communist League) wanting to promote national communism. Those dreams were soon crushed. In 1955 Eesti Televisioon went on air. Estonian SSR-icon Estonian SSRball enjoyed a period loosened surveillance and more liberties during Hruštšovi Sula (Khrushchev Thaw). Literature, cinematography and other areas of art flourished.

With Brezhnev, Estonian SSR-icon Estonian SSRball saw major stagnation in social evolution, technology and consumer goods. The word defitsiit (deficit) and standing in lines for any sort of consumer goods became a part of everyday life, as Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball wasted its time and money on heavy industry. Russification began again, making Russian mandatory and reducing the importance of the local language. Children had more Russian lessons in a school week than Estonian from their first year in school. Estonian SSR-icon Estonian SSRball intellectuals wrote a public letter adressed to Kremlin, which was ignored and suppressed.

During Gorbachev's reforms, Estonian SSR-icon Estonian SSRball protested against the major project to make a huge mining complex in Estonian SSR-icon Estonian SSRball to mine phosphorite (Fosforiidisõda). Research showed that this sort of mining would ruin the ecosystem and the need for labour would mean locating thousands of Russians into Estonian SSR-icon Estonian SSRball, which would make Russians the majority and completely deprioritise and ultimately annihilate Estonia-icon Estoniaball. As the protests bore fruit, Estonian SSR-icon Estonian SSRball saw opportunity to take action, as the Soviet reign had crumbled. Anti-Soviet movements popped up and in 1988 Estonian SSR-icon Estonian SSRball enacted Suveräänsusdeklaratsioon (Declaration of Sovereignty). The national anthem Mu isamaa, mu õnn ja rõõm and the tricolour were legalised again. Estonian SSR-icon Estonian SSRball showed its unity and spirit by holding mass gatherings at Lauluväljak and forming the Balti kett (Baltic Way). Estonian SSR-icon Estonian SSRball held elections, where only Estonians, who were born in Estoniaball before revolution or descendents of them could have a vote. In 1991 a referendum for all was held, whether Estonian SSR-icon Estonian SSRball declares independence or stays in the proposed new and more liberal Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball sphere. 78% voted for independence. August Putschists wanted to take Toompea and Teletorn, but they failed, as the government called for help and thousands gathered in defence. On August 20th 1991 Estonia-icon Estoniaball regained independence, as the government-in-exile passed its duties on to the newly-formed government. Thus the old republic was restored.

Modern Era

In 1992 a new constitution and the old currency Kroon were reinstated. In 1994 Russia-icon Russiaball agreed to remove all stationed troops in Estoniaball. In 2001 Estoniaball won the Eurovision contest in. Estoniaball joined the EU and NATO in 2004 after a referendum. In 2008 Estoniaball suffered a big economic collapse. In 2011 Estonia adopted the Euro. In 2018 Estoniaball will be celebrating its 100th anniversary.

Estonia has become a leading country in infotechnological field, especially thanks to help from the EU-icon EUball. Estonia is also considered to be quite libertarian, one of the freest countries in the world, including of very high level of economic freedom. Except that Estonia still has the mandatory military service.

Personality

Estonia-icon Estoniaball hates it if they are called a Baltic nation, also hates to be categorised as Eastern Europe, because cultural differences. Also, that term usually means bad and Estonia-icon Estoniaball considers themself closer to Finland-icon Finlandball. Also they sees themself as much more advanced than Eastern European nationball, both technologically and economically.

Estoniaball is usually friendly and is very eager to be accepted as a Nord. When around their southern siblings-in-law (Lithuania-icon Lithuaniaball or Latvia-icon Latviaball),they tend to act superior. Estoniaball can be in deep sadness from time to time, which is why they are such an alcoholic.

Estonia-icon Estoniaball has an extremely powerful alcohol tolerancer. They can beat almost anyone in a drinking contest. Estoniaball is very flattered if they are called a "Nordic" country unless it is used by countries mocking Estoniaball.

Estonia-icon Estoniaball's thing is dark rye bread, which has been their bread since serfdom. Rye was considered rubbish by the Germans so they had Estoniaba grow them wheat and Estoniaball could have all of the rye in exchange. Estonia-icon Estoniaball also loves potato, but isn't as obsessed as their neighbour-in-law Latviaball. Estonia-icon Estoniaball much richer and can afford pork.

Though if flashbacks are triggered, Estonia-icon Estoniaball can be very, very dark.

Biological origin

Although Estonia-icon Estoniaball is in the Baltic region (Finland-icon Finlandball was also considered to be located in the Baltics before WWII as all of them had coastlines with the Baltic Sea), Estoniaball is not Baltic by tongue or genes. Estonia-icon Estoniaball and Finlandball are from the same family, which is why the share an outstandingly similar language with Finlandball, even though that similarity might not be that comprehensible for a foreigner, because they can't assume how vowels could have evolved differently, how vocabulary and orthography has been influenced by different foreign languages, how cases work and where the accent is.
