History

Antiquity

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

Moldovaball's clay was Anschlussed by SPQR-icon.png 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.png SPQRball Legions evacuated Dacia-icon.png 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 Kingdom of Hungary-icon.pngKingdom of Hungaryball and in 1359 successfully revolted forming Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball under Bogdan I "the Founder".

As Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball they fought many battles against the Ottoman-icon.png 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-loss 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.png Moldaviaball fought against kebab for as much as they could but in the 16th century, Moldovaball was finally Anschluss by Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball.

Modern Age

In 1806, the Russo-Turkish war starts. After 6 years of battle, the Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball wins and anschlusses the eastern half of Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball, known as Bessarabia-icon.png Bessarabiaball in the Bucharest treaty of 1812. While under Russian-Empire-icon.png 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-icon.pngWallachiaball and the western half of Moldavia-icon.png Moldaviaball that remained under Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball expressed their desire for union. In 1859, the Great Powers allowed such a union and United Principalities-icon.png Romaniaball was born.

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

World Wars

During World War I, taking advantage from the chaos of the communist revolution, Bessarabia-icon.png Bessarabiaball declared independence from Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball as the unrecognized Democratic Republic of Moldavia-icon.png 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.png Kingdom of Romaniaball. The newly born Soviet-icon.png Sovietball never recognized this union and saw it as the annexation of Russian clay, since Moldovaball was always under Russia's wing.

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

The official stance of the Soviet-icon.png 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.png 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.png Bessarabiaballs in Siberia-icon.png Siberiaball started and Gagauzia-icon.png Gagauziaball, Russia-icon.png Russiaball and Ukraine-icon.png Ukraineball were brought in.

Post-Communism

When Soviet-icon.png Sovietball died in 1991, Moldova-icon.png Moldovaball became a free country. Some thought that Moldova-icon.png Moldovaball and Romania-icon.png Romaniaball will unite like East Germany-icon.png East Germanyball and Germany-icon.png West Germanyball. However, this did not happen, because after the breakup, Moldovaball was full of Russians that didn't want that, but Moldovans also did not like the idea anymore, they started believing in their own nation.

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

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

Until 1995 Moldova-icon.png Moldovaball had the same anthem as Romania-icon.png Romaniaball, "Awaken thee, Romanian!". Since 1995 the anthem of Moldova-icon.png 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 ironically used by Moldova-icon.png Moldovaball as a praise to the Moldovan language.

2000s

In 2003, a Moldovan-Romanian dictionary by Vasile Stati was published. Linguists of Romania-icon.png Romaniaball Academy declared that all the Moldovan words are also Romanian words, although some of its contents are Russian loanwords. In Moldova-icon.png 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.png Moldovaball for Romania-icon.png 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.png Moldovaball that wants union increased and keeps increasing, however, they are still a minority (about 30% of the country). And Moldova-icon.png Moldovaball started moving towards EU-icon.png EUball. However there is Russia-icon.png Russiaball who still has troops stationed in Transnistria-icon.png Transnistriaball that can repeat the Crimea-icon.png Crimeaball scenario anytime and invade Moldova-icon.png Moldovaball under whatever excuse.

2010s

In 2010, Mircea Druc, former prime minister of Moldova-icon.png Moldovaball in 1990 - 1991, declared that the unification of Romania-icon.png Romaniaball and Moldova-icon.png 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.png 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.png 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.png 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.png Romaniaball supports the full integration of Moldova into the EU.

In 2016, pro-Russian Igor Dodon became president and started moving towards Russia-icon.png 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.png EUball or Russia-icon.png Russiaball and doesn't know who to trust, and the fact that many Moldovans are leaving Moldova-icon.png Moldovaball for a better life in western countryballs. Some see a solution in a reunion with Romania-icon.png Romaniaball that they describe as "the motherland" but there is the problem of Russia-icon.png Russiaball troops in Transnistria-icon.png Transnistriaball, others see a solution in joining EU-icon.png EUball but without a union with Romania-icon.png Romaniaball, and others see a solution in Russia-icon.png Russiaball that they hope they can trust and acts in their best interests.

But until then Moldova-icon.png 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.png 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.png Moldovaball and Romania-icon.png Romaniaball always give each other 12 points on Eurovision, so they got that going for them which is nice.

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