History

Before American Revolutionary war

Illinoisball was a 3-icon.png 3ball who was first adopted by France-icon.png Franceball. He was a part of Quebec-icon.png Quebecball, which was part of New France-icon.png New Franceball.

A lot of cities, towns, and villages in his clay have a lot of French names. France-icon.png Franceball spent some time exploring the land. Franceball then had a fight with UK-icon.png British Empireball in 1756, part of a bigger fight known as the Seven Years War. British Empireball prevailed and gained the lands of New France east of the Mississippi River. Spainball then took the lands west of it. Because of of the war, UK-icon.png British Empireball had to the ColAmerica-icon.png Thirteen Coloniesball. This caused a revolt, in which the Thirteen Colonies wanted independence.

American Revolutionary War

British Empireball made Illinoisball as a part of Quebec-icon.png Quebecball, who was basically controlled by the aforementioned British Empireball. Then, France-icon.png Franceball, Spanish-Empire-icon.png Spanish Empireball, and Dutch Republic-icon.png Dutch Republicball joined ColAmerica-icon.png, as well as some 3-icon.png 3balls.

UK-icon.png British Empireball also had some 3balls on his side. They sent a lot of supplies to ColAmerica-icon.png Thirteen Coloniesball, and British Empireball couldn't keep up. Quebec-icon.png Quebecball was controlled by the British so he had to fight for them. He lost some territory to the 4 allies and after years of fighting, the 1783 Treaty of Paris was signed.

Territory era

Some of Quebec-icon.png Quebecball's clay was going to the new USA-icon (WW1soldier).png USAball. Illinoisball was a part of Northwest Territoryball along with Ohio-icon.png OhioRawr, Indiana-icon.png Indianaball, Michigan-icon.png Michigancube, Wisconsin-icon.png Wisconsinball, and part of Minnesota-icon.png Minnesotaball.

After Ohio-icon.png OhioRawr became a state, Northwest territoryball turned into Indiana Territoryball, then after Indiana-icon.png Indianaball became a state, the extra clay was split between Michigan-icon.png Michigan Territorycube and Illinois-icon.png Illinois Territoryball. During his time as a terriotry, he was cleaning up and people were exploring his clay.

Statehood

He officially became a state on December 3, 1818. The capital was moved to Springfield (Illinois)-icon.png Springfieldball. The rest of Illinois-icon.png Illinois Territoryball's clay was merged with Michigan-icon.png Michigan Territorycube. He also stole some land from what was to become Wisconsin-icon.png Wisconsinball.

He established a lot of cityballs in his clay, including his annoying son Chicago-icon.png Chicagoball. In 1830, Abraham Lincoln moved to his clay, making him "The land of Lincoln". He opposed slavery and racism, so he made them both illegal. He was doing well, steel was booming, corn production had skyrocketed, as well as railroads and canals.

Civil war

Eleven states formed CSA-icon.png CSAball, a separatist countryball, because they liked slavery. He decided it was a good idea to bomb Fort Sumter. Illinoisball had 250,000 soldiers enlisted in the U.S. Army. He also helped slaves escape to their freedom. One of his fellow soldiers. At the time, one of his residents and his favorite person, Abraham Lincoln, was president, making him the most relevant state during the Civil war. So he sent a lot of soldiers to fight. Turns out, a lot died from disease, cold weather, or starvation.

Because he was super relevant, he also made a lot of food for Union troops. Another resident, Ulysses S. Grant, sucessfully commanded troops along the Mississippi river, making him a lot more relevant. After four years of battle, the war was over, with USA-icon.png USAball winning. Illinoisball was sad when Abraham Lincoln was killed while watching a play. To this day, he hates this racist who killed him.

After the Civil War

After the war, a lot of clean up was required. In 1869, he helped build a railway and the previously mentioned Ulyesses S. Grant was elected president, making him relevant. In 1871, Chicago-icon.png Chicagoball accidentally set his clay on fire. Illinoisball and a lot of other cities came to help put him out and helped rebuild him, and new plans were laid out for the street grid. In 1886, a lot of Chicago-icon.png Chicagoballs and Illinois-icon.png Illinoisballs gathered and protested for an 8 hour work day. And to this day, many people work a 9 to 5 job, Chicago-icon.png Chicagoball also hosted a exposition and it was very sucessful.

Illinois-icon.png Illinoisball was doing great. Lots of immigrants were coming, mostly Germany-icon.png German, with some Russia-icon.png Russian, and Poland-icon.png Polish sprinkled in there. This increased the population a lot. Steel was doing great as well, railroads were shutting here and there, and a lot of bad governors came and went as well as a lot of good ones.

WW1

Since Illinois-icon.png Illinoisball was part of USA-icon.png USAball, he gets into wars that USAball got into, for until 1917, USAball was neutral, until German Empire-icon.png German Empireball wanted to invade USAball via Mexico-icon.png Mexicoball, who was having a revolution at the time. Because of this, the usage of German in USA-icon.png USAball dropped, as well as USA-icon.png USAball going to war. Illinoisball was making lots of steel, and the Central Powers were weak. German Empire-icon.png German Empireball had to surrender and Germany-icon.png Weimar Republicball had to pay reparations to the allies.

This was followed by a pandemic, the Spanish Flu. This actually originated from Kansas-icon.png Kansasball, not Spain-icon.png Spainball.

Interwar period

After the pandemic, the roaring 20's approached, with lots of cars, food, steel, roads being made. The dollar was also very powerful and people were living great. Then overproduction caused a stock market crash, leading to a global depression. Illinois-icon.png Illinoisball had to take care of Chicago-icon.png Chicagoball as well. This lasted 10 years. But at this time, somebody helped make pizza popular in America.

In 1933, a racist came to power in Germany-icon.png Germanyball. This worried USA-icon.png USAball, as he hates racism and genocide, but he did commit genocide before In 1939, war broke out in europe. He was sad when Poland-icon.png Polandball was crushed.

WW2

USA-icon.png USAball stayed neutral for 2 years, until he embargoed Japanese-Empire-icon.png Empire of Japanball and Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. That's when he decided to help Taiwan-icon.png Chinaball and UK-icon.png UKball. He managed to do 2 offensives, with a sucessful landing on D-Day and another sucessful offensive in SE Asia. Illinois-icon.png Illinoisball was making steel, guns, ammunition, bombs, etc to help with the war effort.

With Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball's defeat and Japan's surrender, a victory was secured for the allies. Evert state was relevant during the war, with food production, ammunition, etc. The first nuke in warfare was a huge sucess for the allies.

Cold War

This was an era that lasted 46 years. During these 46 years, a national road system was established, Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball had nukes, a lot of war stuff. Illinoisball was still relevant when it comes to elections, but mostly irrelevant during other times, with the exception of materials and soldiers. In 1973, an oil embargo on USA-icon.png USAball hurt the industrial secotr in Illinoisball big time. That's when most of him became part of the rust belt.

In 1980, he finally became relevant when Ronald Reagan became President. Even though his career was in California-icon.png Californiaball, he was born in Illinois, which makes Illinois-icon.png Illinoisball relevant. He was super relevant as Ronald Reagan was tough on communism and helped make the nation better. in 1989, he became irrelevant when Reagan's vice president, George H.W. Bush became president. He was born in Texas-icon.png Texasball. 2 years into Bush's term, Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball collapsed. Marking a victory for the western bloc.

Post-Cold War

After the Cold war ended, there was an election, when Bill Clinton won in Illinoisball, he decided to switch to the left. He used to be a critical swing state leaning toward the right. He remained mostly irrelevant except for food and materials.

He became relevant in 2009, when an Illinois resident, Barack Obama, became president. Illinoisball legalized Medical weed in 2014. He became irrelevant in 2017, when Donald Trump-icon.png Trump became president. In 2020, he leglized all weed. Currently, Joe Biden-icon.png Joe Biden, the former vice president of Barack Obama, is the next president, so when he becomes president, Illinoisball will be relevant because Joe is the former vice president of an Illinois resident. He is currently dealing with COVID-19.
