Montenegro is a country located in Southeastern Europe.[1] It has a coast on the Adriatic Sea to the south-west and is bordered by Croatia to the west, Bosnia and Herzegovina to the northwest, Serbia to the northeast, Kosovo to the east and Albania to the south. Known for its intimidating size and scope, advertisements within Serbia tout it as being "like a whole 'nother country."

edit History

Montenegro first burst onto the scene in ancient times, when an independence movement emerged in opposition to the Illyrians, who had been occupying the land. Not willing to be a part of a nation whose greatest accomplishment was inclusion into a mod for Rome Total War, the movement gained momentum. Though early battles were decisive defeats for Montenegro, the addition of the night battle feature gave a needed boost to the movement, and independence was achieved.

While they were soon conquered by the Romans, this didn't squelch the movement for independence - nor did their subsequent re-conquering by the Venetians, Ottomans, Austro-Hungarians, Germans, Poles, Hobgoblins, Yugoslavians, and Serbians

In 2006, knowing that Serbia had fought brutal wars to prevent the secession of other parts of their nation, Montenegrin leaders cautiously presented the Serbian government with papers stating their intent to secede. But, knowledgeable about the poor track record of empires who occupied Montenegro, and their propensity to collapse dramatically - the most notable case being that of the Hobgoblins - Serbia decided to cut its losses and allow Montenegro to leave.[2]

edit Economy

While control of Montenegro has shifted, their mountainous terrain provides for a climate perfect for growing starchy, tuberous crops. Both stem tubers, growing slightly above the ground, and root tubers, are especially popular staple foods. In addition to these, bulbs from lesser plants are a commonly eaten and formed the most common currency before the adoption of the Euro. Bulbs from tulips, and even garlic, are squeezed into lush drinks and consumed for their nutritional value. Most of these items are harvested by hand, using spades that are additionally made of dried tubers, typically of the woody, hearty variety.

edit Footnotes

  1. Some scholars dispute this claim.
  2. Kosovo didn't get the memo.
