Estonia-icon.png Estonia

Estoniaball, officially the Nordic Republic of YouTube Poops Estoniaball, is a Baltic countryball located in Northern Europe (Don't call her Eastern European). She is bordered by Latvia-icon.png Latviaball to the South, Russia-icon.png Russiaball to the West and East, and is located South of Finland-icon.png Finlandball, and East of Sweden-icon.png Swedenball. The country is divided into 15 counties, including the capital Tallinn-icon.png Tallinnball located in the North, giving her a total area of 17,462 square miles, making her the 129th largest country in the world. As of 2019, she has a population of 1.323 million inhabitants.

Like most former communist/soviet states, after the fall of Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball, Estonia decided to join EU-icon.png EUball and NATO-icon.png NATOball in order to gain protection from Russia-icon.png Russiaball. Despite the attempts however, she has failed to join the Nordic Council-icon.png Nordic Councilball as she is not considered "Nordic" (except by maybe Finland-icon.png Finlandball ).

According to Geography Now, Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball is often seen as that one girl in school that used to get picked on, but is now very popular after doing an incredible act in the talent show. Though she acts very friendly around other European countries, she acts very dark when she is reminded of her past full of being conquered, tortured, and annexed by former empires. Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball can be in deep sadness from time to time, which is why she is such an alcoholic.

Her national day can either be February 24th for when she gained independence from Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball, or August 20th for when she gained independence from Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball.

She is sad because Sweden-icon.png Swedenball won't let her into Estonia-icon (Nordic).pngNordic.


Ancient Era (appr. 9000 BC - 1218 AD)

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

Europe was basically uninhabited until 9000 BC, when Finnicball settled first in what is now Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball. Their grand cultural heritage tells the story of how Finland-icon.png Finlandball was born: Those Estonia-icon.png Estoniaballs that were deemed to unintelligent by Estonia-icon.png 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.png Scotlandball (settled by Finnicballs from Saaremaa) and from Samiball to what is now Poland-icon.png Polandball before the introduction of Indo-Aryan country balls to Europe.

By miracle, the asiatic-looking Finnic-icon.png 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.png Finlandball, Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball, Latvia-icon.png 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.png Estoniaball, Finland-icon.png Finlandball and Livonians-icon.png Livoniansball.

Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball was feared by Russia-icon.png Russiaball and Sweden-icon.png 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.png Estoniaball didn't know about agriculture until approximately 900-1000 CE, when her chiefdoms slowly started adopting Christianity. Foreign missionaries mainly from Denmark-icon.png Denmarkball baptised Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball and taught her about growing crops. Before starting ploughing fields, Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball herded aurochs and horses. Lithuania-icon.png Lithuaniaball had already pushed Finland-icon.png Finlandball out of Lithuania-icon.png Lithuaniaball by that time, Lithuania-icon.png Lithuaniaballs intermingled with Livonians-icon.png Livoniansballs and Latvia-icon.png Latviaball was born. Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball forged Damascus steel from bog iron and sold it to Sweden-icon.png Swedenball, costing them a lot of silver, from which Estonia-icon.png 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.png Estoniaball wasn't Christian and needs to be baptised again. That seemed like a ridiculous allegation for Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball. She got upset and denied him. Thus the Teutonic Orderball and its branch, the Livonian Order-icon.png Livonian Orderball started a war with Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball, later joined by Denmark-icon.png Denmarkball , Sweden-icon.png Swedenball and Russia-icon.png Russiaball . During the Muistne vabadusvõitlus (Ancient Struggle for Freedom) a couple of Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball nobles pledged allegiance to Denmark-icon.png Denmarkball and continued ruling afterwards, serving the Denmark-icon.png Denmarkball cause. Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball lost their lands and their freedom after two decades of defending against them to the Livonian Order-icon.png Livonian Orderball and Denmark-icon.png Denmarkball. Thus Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball grew to hate Christianity.

Era of Terra Mariana

After a century of hard labour, repressions and high taxes, Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball revolted in 1343-1345, later deemed Jüriöö ülestõus (Uprising of St. George's Night). Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball burned down hundreds of fortresses and manors. Denmark-icon.png Denmarkball couldn't suppress the uprisings, so he sold his Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball territories to Livonian Order-icon.png Livonian Orderball, who decided to hold negotiations with the chosen four kings of Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball. The Livonian Order-icon.png Livonian Orderball demanded all Estonia-icon.png Estoniaballs, who were guilty of murdering the monks of Padise monastery, be put to the sword, for which Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball can have back its own rule. Estonia-icon.png 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.png Russiaball demanded Tartu-icon.png Tartuball to pay debts from three centuries ago, when Tartu-icon.png Tartuball was conquered and ruled over by Russia-icon.png Russiaball for some years while Muistne vabadusvõitlus was going on. Tartu-icon.png Tartuball refused to pay, so Russia-icon.png Russiaball attacked, starting Liivi sõda (Livonian War). Russia-icon.png Russiaball had almost taken all of Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball and wanted to install the prince of Denmark-icon.png Denmarkball as the vassal ruler, when Sweden-icon.png Swedenball landed in Tallinn-icon.png Tallinnball and took North of Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball away from Russia-icon.png Russiaball. Poland-icon.png Polandball conquered South of Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball and Denmark-icon.png Denmarkball kept Saaremaa. Thus Liivi sõda ended in 1583.

Era of Swedish Rule

Sweden-icon.png Swedenball managed to get all of Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball under his 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.png Tallinnball in 1631 and an academy in Tartu-icon.png Tartuball in 1632 that were meant for people from all statuses, although that didn't take effect), but the Germany-icon.png Germanyball noble descendants of the Livonian Order-icon.png 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.png Swedenball started the reduction, reclaiming fiefs granted to the nobility. That turned many nobles against Sweden-icon.png Swedenball's rule and the nobility started conspiring against it.

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

Era of Russian Rule

For a whole century, little changed in the abysmal conditions in which Estonia-icon.png 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.png Tartuball founded by Sweden-icon.png 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.png Estoniaball students and Germany-icon.png 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.png 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.png Estoniaball started documenting all of her culture. Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball began buying back her farmstead lands from Germany-icon.png 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.png Estoniaball national movement was outlawed and Estonian wasn't allowed to be spoken in schools. Germany-icon.png Germanyball governor was replaced with a Russia-icon.png Russiaball governor and Russia-icon.png Russiaball tried to convert Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball into orthodoxy. After the revolution of 1905, some bans were either lifted or loosened. In 1917 the old Russia-icon.png Russiaball collapsed and the new Russian Republic-icon.png Russiaball granted autonomy for Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball. Within a small period in February 1918, when Russia-icon.png Russiaball forces retreated from the arriving German Empire-icon.png Germanyball forces and no foreign power was stationed there, Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball declared independence.

Era of Independence

In November 1918 German Empire-icon.png Germanyball surrendered to the Triple Entente and that left Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball to face Russian SFSR (old)-icon.png Russian SFSRball alone. However, Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball didn't give up. She rallied and mobilised everyone she could and with the help of Finland-icon.png Finlandball volunteers and a couple UK-icon.png UKball destroyers, Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball struck the Russiaball offence as far as Saint Petersburg-icon.png St. Petersburgball and liberated Latvia-icon.png Latviaball, which had been completely taken by the Reds. Vabadussõda (War of Independence) ended in February 1920. Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball had a hard time in politics. There were too many parties with similar, but still very different ideologies and all the politicians are corrupted. 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.png Estoniaball didn't really prosper until Vaikiv ajastu (Silent Era), which started when Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball declared martial law because of the threat that Vapsid might stage a coup d'état. Thus Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball became an authoritarian regime.

Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball exported grain, dairy, meat, poultry and confectioneries to as far as USA-icon.png USAballEstonia-icon.png 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.png Estoniaball was approached by Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball, who offered to guarantee their protection and neutrality in the inevitable war. Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball accepted the offer and fell immediately under Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball influence. In June 1940 Juunipööre (Revolution of June) happened and the Estonian SSR-icon.png 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.png Estoniaball. Hundreds flocked on any sort of watercraft to emigrate to Sweden-icon.png 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.png Soviet Unionball ordered juuniküüditamine (June Deportation) to get rid of hostiles to the regime. Approximately 10,000 out of the diminutive Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball population of 1,000,000 were all put on animal wagons overnight and sent to various gulags labour camps across Siberia-icon.png Siberiaball without delay, separating thousands of families. The majority of men were massacred at their arrival at gulags labour camps. 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.png Nazi Germanyball occupied Estonian SSR-icon.png Estonian SSRball and reorganised it into an Eastern territory. Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball was allowed to publicly display the Estonian tricolour and sing the Estonian anthem once again. Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball had its own self-administration and battalions. When Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball was retreating from the Soviet-icon.png 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.png Swedenball, where the Estonia-icon.png Estonian de facto Government-in-exile was founded. Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball returned in September 1944. Thus Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball vanished from the world map going into exile in Swedenball with recognition only from USA-icon.png USAball.

Era of Soviet Rule

With the return of Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball, thousands were tortured and punished for having helped Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball in any way. Hundreds joined the resistance movement Metsavennad (Forest Brothers) hiding in the woods. Collectivization was reinstated. In 1949 Soviet-icon.png 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 gulags. With many kulaks deported, who were a source of food for Metsavennad, the resistance movement perished.

As Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball lost its totalitarian dictator in 1953, Estonian SSR-icon.png 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.png 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.png 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.png 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.png Estonian SSRball intellectuals wrote a public letter adressed to Kremlin, which was ignored and suppressed.

During Gorbachev's reforms, Estonian SSR-icon.png Estonian SSRball protested against the major project to make a huge mining complex in Estonian SSR-icon.png 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.png Estonian SSRball, which would make Russians the majority and completely deprioritise and ultimately annihilate Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball. As the protests bore fruit, Estonian SSR-icon.png Estonian SSRball saw opportunity to take action, as the Soviet reign had crumbled. Anti-Soviet movements popped up and in 1988 Estonian SSR-icon.png 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.png Estonian SSRball showed its unity and spirit by holding mass gatherings at Lauluväljak and forming the Balti kett (Baltic Way) with Latvian SSR-icon.png Latvian SSRball and Lithuanian SSR-icon.png Lithuanian SSRball. Estonian SSR-icon.png Estonian SSRball then held elections, where only Estonians, who were born in Estoniaball before the revolution or descendents of them could have a vote. In 1991 a referendum for all was held, whether Estonian SSR-icon.png Estonian SSRball declares independence or stays in the proposed new and more liberal Soviet-icon.png 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.png 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.png Russiaball agreed to remove all stationed troops in Estoniaball. In 2001 Estoniaball won the Eurovision contest (although people said that she didn't deserve it). Estoniaball joined the EU and NATO in 2004 after a referendum. In 2008, along with the entire world, Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball suffered a big economic collapse. In 2011 Estonia adopted the Euro. In 2018 Estoniaball celebrated her 100th anniversary.

Estonia has become a leading country in infotechnological field, especially thanks to help from the EU-icon.png 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. However, Estonia-icon.png still has mandatory military service.

In 2019, Estoniaball can into winning WRC, when on October 27, Ott Tänak finished second in Rally Catalunya. After coming third in 2017 and 2018 championships, he won the championship in 2019, ending the 15-year dominance of two French Sebastiens (Loeb and Ogier). Previously, Markko Märtin had come 3rd in 2004.

Biological origin

Although Estonia-icon.png Estoniaball is in the Baltic region (Finland-icon.png 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.png Estoniaball and Finlandball are from the same family, which is why they 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.

Flag Colors

The flag of Estonia is a horizontal tricolor composing of the colors blue, black, and white.

True Blue 0, 114, 206 C100-M45-Y0-K19 #0072CE
Black 0, 0, 0 C0-M0-Y0-K100 #000000
White 255, 255, 255 N/A #FFFFFF

The blue represents loyalty and the beautiful blue skies, the black is symbolic of past oppression, and represents the forest in the winter, and the white represents virtue and the winter snows.
