The country is divided into 32 districts, 3 Municipalities, and 2 Gagauzia-icon Transnistria-icon Autonomous Regions, including the capital Chishinëu-icon Chișinăuball being one of the Municipalities located in the South, giving Moldovaball a total area of 13,068 square miles (Excluding Transnistria = 11,461 square miles), making them the 135th largest country in the world. As of 2016, Moldova-icon Moldovaball maintains a population of 3.552 million inhabitants.

History

Antiquity

Moldovaball was born as a 2-icon 2ball in Eastern Europe and was adopted by Dacia-icon Daciaball in 168 BC.

Moldovaball's clay was anschlussed by SPQR-icon SPQRball and the local population was romanized, taking from the conquerors their language and advanced culture of the Roman Empire.

War Veterans were given clay and Roman Colonists were invited from all corners of the Empire to accelerate the Romanization process.

The people on that clay became Daco-Romans (although they considered themselves as only Romans). In 271, SPQR-icon SPQRball Legions evacuated Dacia-icon Daciaball and the migrations period began (Goths, Huns, Avars, Slavs).

Since the migrants had no interest of agriculture themselves but needed food they made a deal with the natives, they are allowed to rule themselves and not be killed as long as they give 1/2 of everything they produce.

Middle Ages

Eventually they ended up under Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball and in 1359 successfully revolted forming Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball under Bogdan I "the Founder".

As Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball they fought many battles against the Ottoman-icon Ottomanball and resisted as well as protected the rest of Europe for centuries. Their most famous ruler was Stephen the Great with a great win-lose ratio of 44 - 2 against kebab. He once asked all Western European Christian Nations to join him in an ultimate crusade against kebab. Unfortunately nobody joined as they were too busy fighting each other.

Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball fought against kebab for as much as they could but in the 16th century Moldovaball was finally anschlussed by Ottoman-icon Ottoman Empireball.

Modern Age

In 1806, the Russo-Turkish war starts. After 6 years of battle, the Russian-Empire-icon Russian Empireball wins and anschlusses the eastern half of Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball, known as Bessarabia-icon Bessarabiaball in the Bucharest treaty of 1812. While under Russian-Empire-icon Russian Empireball, Moldovaball became one of the poorest provinces of Europe.

In 1859, ad-hoc meetings were organized in 1857 where the populations of ​Wallachia-iconWallachiaball and the western half of Moldavia-icon Moldaviaball that remained under Ottoman-icon Ottoman Empireball expressed their desire for union. In 1859, the Great Powers allowed such a union and United Principalities-icon Romaniaball was born.

In 1877, United Principalities-icon Romaniaball declares its independence from Ottoman-icon Ottoman Empireball fighting besides Russian-Empire-icon Russian Empireball, Bulgaria-icon Bulgariaball, Serbia-icon Serbiaball and Montenegro-icon Montenegroball in an Orthodoxy crusade coalition. In 1881, United Principalities-icon Romaniaball becomes Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball.

World Wars

During World War I, taking advantage from the chaos of the communist revolution, Bessarabia-icon Bessarabiaball declared independence from Russian-Empire-icon Russian Empireball as the unrecognized Democratic Republic of Moldavia-icon Democratic Republic of Moldaviaball. Three months later, the supreme authority of the new Bessarabian state – Sfatul Tarii voted for union with Kingdom of Romania-icon Kingdom of Romaniaball. The newly born Soviet-icon Sovietball never recognised this union and saw it as annexation of Russian clay.

They were together for 22 year until 1940 when Bessarabia-icon Bessarabiaball was kidnapped by the Soviet-icon USSRball as a consequence of the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact of 1939. Who took Budjakball (GIB SEA BACK!) and Khotynball from Bessarabia-icon Bessarabiaball then started deportations of anyone who promoted a Pro-Romanian sentiment to differentiate Bessarabia-icon Bessarabiaball from Romania-icon Romaniaball and eliminate tensions.

The official stance of the Soviet-icon USSRball government was that Moldovan culture and nationality are distinct from Romanian, the Latin alphabet was replaced with the Cyrillic alphabet and the language was renamed Moldovan, the access of native Bessarabia-icon Bessarabiaballs to positions in administration and economy was limited as they were considered untrustworthy, the authors that promoted a Romanian national sentiment were banned, ethnic cleansing by mass deporting native Bessarabia-icon Bessarabiaballs in Siberia-icon Siberiaball started and Gagauzia-icon Gagauziaball, Russia-icon Russiaball and Ukraine-icon Ukraineball were brought in.

Post-Communism

When Soviet-icon Sovietball thankfully died in 1991, Moldova-icon Moldovaball became a free country. Some thought that Moldova-icon Moldovaball and Romania-icon Romaniaball will unite like East Germany-icon East Germanyball and Germany-icon West Germanyball. However, this did not happen. Unlike East Germany-icon East Germanyball who knew they were Germans, Moldova-icon Moldovaball was of rapings and part of the Soviet-icon USSRball itself, not a satellite state.

Economically, some would tend to think it was Romania-icon Romaniaball who didn't want the union because he was 5 times richer than Moldova-icon Moldovaball and union meant that he would have to invest a lot of money in Bessarabia-icon Bessarabiaball. Strangely this wasn't the case, due to patriotic reasons >80% of Romanians wanted the union. On the other hand, Moldova-icon Moldovaball did not want the union because they came to believe they are not the same people as Romania-icon Romaniaball.

Moldova-icon Moldovaball's declaration of independence from 1991 refers to the official language as Romanian, while their constitution from 1994 refers to the language as Moldovan. There's controversy in Moldovaball whether Moldovaball's langauge is Moldovan or Romanian, due to the Soviet-icon USSRball raping when Moldovaball was Moldavian SSR-icon Moldavian SSRball. Some claim "Romanian people Romanian language" while others claim "I'm Moldovan, I speak Moldovan language".

People from urban areas predominantly call their language Romanian while people from the rural areas predominately call their language Moldovan. Various Moldovan singers performed pro-Romanian language songs such as O-zone "I won't forsake our language" with the last verse being "I won't forsake our language, our Romanian language", Doina and Ion Aldea Teodorovici performed a song called "The Romanian language". Aurica Dicusară Basarabeanca performed a song called "Bessarabia, don't cry" as a tribute to 25 years since the officialization of the Romanian language.

After Moldova-icon Moldovaball became a member of UN-icon UNball in 1992, Moldovaball's president authorized a military intervenience against rebels who still wanted to be part of Soviet-icon Sovietball. Backed by Russia-icon Russiaball troops, the rebels gained control over the eastern bank of the Dnister river attacking police sections loyal to Moldova-icon Moldovaball, thus Transnistria-icon Transnistriaball was born. Moldova-icon Moldovaball army was outnumbered by Russia-icon Russiaball troops which made them unable to regain control over Transnistria-icon Transnistriaball. A ceasefire was signed and Transnistria-icon Transnistriaball declared partial independence from them.

Until 1995 Moldova-icon Moldovaball had the same anthem as Romania-icon Romaniaball, "Awaken thee, Romanian!". Since 1995 the anthem of Moldova-icon Moldovaball became "Our Language" written by Alexei Mateevici (1888-1917) as a prase to the Romanian language while under Russian domination urging people to keep using it. However, the song was irronically used by Moldova-icon Moldovaball as a praise to the Moldovan language.

2000s

In 2003, a Moldovan-Romanian dictionary by Vasile Stati was published. Linguists of Romania-icon Romaniaball Academy declared that all the Moldovan words are also Romanian words, although some of its contents are Russian loanwords. In Moldova-icon Moldovaball, the head of the Academy of Sciences' Institute of Linguistics, Ion Bărbuță described the dictionary as an absurdity, serving political purposes. Vasile Stati, however, accused both of promoting Romanian colonialism. At that point, a group of Romanian linguists adopted a resolution stating that promotion of the notion of a distinct Moldovan language is an anti-scientific campaign.

In 2006, Romanian newspaper Cotidianul estimated the cost of a union with Moldova-icon Moldovaball for Romania-icon Romaniaball at €30–35 billion, and attracted criticism from the Romanian newspapers Ziua and Timpul for exaggerating the costs and disregarding other dimensions of a possible union.

Starting 2009 the communist party lost power, the percentage of Moldova-icon Moldovaball that wants union increased and keeps increasing, however they are still a minority (about 30% of the country). And Moldova-icon Moldovaball started moving towards EU-icon EUball. However there is Russia-icon Russiaball who still has troops stationed in Transnistria-icon Transnistriaball that can repeat the Crimea-icon Crimeaball scenario anytime and invade Moldova-icon Moldovaball under whatever excuse.

2010s

In 2010, Mircea Druc, former prime minister of Moldova-icon Moldovaball in 1990 - 1991, declared that the unification of Romania-icon Romaniaball and Moldova-icon Moldovaball is inevitable. However, acting president Mihai Ghimpu stated that a union is not included in the program of the governing coalition. On another occasion he declared that if the people wanted unification, neither he, nor anyone else could stop them. He admitted on several occasions to personally hold unionist views.

In 2013, the Constitutional Court of Moldova-icon Moldovaball ruled that the name "Romanian," as used in the Declaration of Independence to identify the official language, prevails over the name "Moldovan," given in the Article 13. Thus the official language settled for "Romanian". However the breakaway region of Transnistria-icon Transnistriaball continues to recognize "Moldovan" as the official language, along with Russian and Ukrainian (due to the many Russians and Ukrainians living there).

In, 2013, Romania-icon Romaniaball President Traian Băsescu stated that the third priority for Romania, after joining NATO and EU, must be the union with Moldova. "I'm convinced that if in Moldova will be an unionist current, Romania will say 'yes' without hesitation". The Mayor of Chișinău, Dorin Chirtoacă welcomed the statements made by Băsescu. On the other hand, the Moldovan prime-minister, Iurie Leancă, described Băsescu's declaration as "creating crucial problems" for Moldova and affirmed his government's support for a sovereign Moldova. In present, Romania-icon Romaniaball supports the full integration of Moldova into the EU.

In 2016, pro-Russian Igor Dodon became president and started moving towards Russia-icon Russiaball. The presidential site of Igor Dodon has seen the Romanian language option changed to Moldovan, which he described to be "in accordance with the constitution".

Moldovaball’s greatest problems are poverty and lack of direction, can't decide whether EU-icon EUball or Russia-icon Russiaball and doesn't know who to trust, and the fact that many Moldovans are leaving Moldova-icon Moldovaball for a better life in western countryballs. Some see a solution in reunion with Romania-icon Romaniaball that they describe as "the motherland" but there is the problem of Russia-icon Russiaball troops in Transnistria-icon Transnistriaball, others see as solution in joining EU-icon EUball but without a union with Romania-icon Romaniaball, and others see a solution in Russia-icon Russiaball that they hope they can trust and acts in their best interests.

But until then Moldova-icon Moldovaball is doing okay, they are not in a threat or crisis situation and is independent (mostly), in spite of the different opinions and controversy within the country, Moldova-icon Moldovaball's people don't live difficult times in spite of being the poorest country in europe or times of conflict as it may seem from history. It's a peaceful countryball where people live normal lives.

On the bright side, as separate states Moldova-icon Moldovaball and Romania-icon Romaniaball always give each other 12 points on Eurovision, so they got that going for them which is nice. Some believe Moldova-icon Moldovaball and Romania-icon Romaniaball would be better as 2 brother nations but separate like Germany-icon Germanyball and Austria-icon Austriaball.

In 2017, Moldovaball got their best-ever Eurovision result - third place in the final - thanks to the return of the beloved Epic Sax Guy.
