Avar was a nation primarily located in Eastern Europe, established on September 24, 2019. Led by TheGloryThief and marsun02 in its golden era, the nation was one of the most prominent pre-decay nations, with outposts situated across the globe. In its later history, Avar fell into decline, starting soon before the ascension of mindflex22 to the throne on November 16, 2019.
Pre-Nova & Early Days Edit
On September 20, 2019, TheGloryThief and marsun02 invited several people to choose what future towns they would create in the soon-to-be nation of Avar, on the new world of Nova. The leaders had previously created the Khmer Empire on Gladius, and would be moving to Nova when it was released. The nation was officially created on September 24, 2019, only several days after Nova was released. Its capital, Kiev, is the oldest European town, and the third oldest town on Nova, and was created on the same day Nova was made public. Avar is mainly divided into 4 provinces: Ukraine, Russia, Crimea, and Poland.

A New King Edit
On November 1, 2019, the former ruler of Rome, DerpNuke, was invited to join the nation as a co-ruler by TheGloryThief. Despite originally lacking public support, DerpNuke became co-ruler, ruling jointly with marsun02 and TheGloryThief until their resignations.
The Largest Nation Edit
In late October and early November, Avar underwent dramatic growth and surpassed Nova America as the largest nation. During this peak period, Avar spread outside of Eastern Europe, with TheGloryThief establishing the Spanish town of Bilbao on October 23, 2019, and colonial settlements being introduced to the nation.

On November 20, 2019, Carthazhao Mexarus, the supernation formed by many Avarian rivals, declared war on Avar to bring its demise. Due to a bug in the war system, Datearth staff declared a ceasefire on the war prior to it beginning and so the war ended in a draw on November 26, 2019.
Avar's Decline Edit
From early November, Avar started to decline. After being displeased with the leadership and actions of DerpNuke, TheGloryThief, and marsun02, due to actions such as vote manipulation and poor decision making, several towns and people including Kherson and Paphos departed from the nation. Soon after, the nation experienced the departure of TheGloryThief, marsun02 and DerpNuke. Increasingly, there were many arguments, conflicts, and disputes, and many independence movements in Avar's overseas territories, who wished to establish their own regional nations, putting immense strain on the unity of Avar. From a peak of approximately 310 residents, Avar was left with only five residents on dissolution.
Avar employed a monarchical system of government, with all aspects of government decided upon by the rulers and their advisers, the Council. Previously, each aspect of government was managed by a separate department, with sub-groups of ministries. The ministerial system was abolished after the independence of Belarus.
