Nova is the sixth Datearth world released on Datblock, opened on September 21, 2019. It was made to replace Novus, and it succeeded Gladius as the most recent world. It features 1.13 PVP, weapons, vehicles, as well as nuclear weapons and reactors.
Towards the end of November 2019, players began to regard Nova as a boring world where not many interesting wars were taking place. In addition, Nova began being recognized for its toxicity following the North American War; primarily due to the intense hostility between Nova America and the Republic of Texas.
On September 21, 2019, Nova was created. In the first hour of its release, players walked on every continent, apart from Antarctica. The first town created on Nova was Timbuktu (now part of Songhai), created by MisterAtom and Holy_Divinity. The second town created was Blackhaven (now part of the Norman Empire), created by morte_rossa with help from other players. The third city created was Kiev (now part of Avar). The first nation created was Songhai, in West Africa, and the second was Zhao, in East Asia. The first mission completed on Nova was done by Ineza_Kai.
Ecrinian War of Terror Edit

Battle of the Bremen Clocktower Edit
The newly founded town of Bremen went under attack from a small group of Ecrinians, but retreated due to the defenses the Bremen Clocktower provided under LisPisCringe.
FlyNovus conflict Edit
In early September, there was confusion over which nation owned the airline FlyNovus, which is headed by Airplaneguy9. This led to people believing that the Hanseatic Empire owned FlyNovus, as Airplaneguy9 was initially part of the nation, FlyNovus was (at the time) based in a Hansa city, and FlyNovus owned 20% of the state-owned airline Hanseatia. Airplaneguy9 finally released a statement declaring that FlyNovus was not owned by a nation. This seems to have released tension, especially between Hansa and Mercia (the Norman Empire). This conflict was observed mostly on the Nova Discord server.
Carthaginian War of Terror Edit
Carthaginian pirates and terrorists have been attacking settlements since the nation came into existence. However, A week after the server opened, Carthaginian pirates have become relentless in killing and scamming players all over Europe and the Middle East.

The Nuclear Autumn Edit

Transylvanian Civil War Edit
On October 27th, 2019, the Transylvanian town of Belgrade, driven by what they considered high taxes, made a plea to ruler Raller0907 for independence.

Heating Tensions Edit
The support of the Germanic Empire sparked fierce debate between the nations of Rome and Germany. Rome asserted their intention to declare war on the German Empire with help from the Norman Empire, to which they responded with claims to be backed up by Nova America, Carthage, and Australia.
Arguments continued throughout the day, and resulted in Rome declaring a nationwide embargo on any trade with Nova America until further notice.

Battle of Moab Edit
On February 2, 2020, one person from the former Carthazhao Mexarus invaded Moab, Utah. The forces of Utah, Great Britannia and the Imperium Of Nova came to defend Moab from the well equipped attacker. The fight escalated when 3 more Carthazhao Mexarussian citizens came and fought against the defending allies and citizens of Moab. The Moab defense lost a few guns and later the battle. The defenders were under-equipped and the attackers had a major advantage point due to the town being in a valley. In response, Utah's forces tore down a mountain and put a military base on it.
The Novan Drop Edit
On February 24, 2020, Airplaneguy9 published an important article, documenting his study on the Novan economy:
"While it was thought that prices would soar and the world would encounter a sort of Great Depression due to scarcity of items and shops, it was found that prices dropped by over 10 times - only minerals and radiation pills have gone up. This is due to the overall poverty rate of Nova, which has dropped from an average of $8k in October to around $500 now. All the rich players have left for Gladia, and because the poor were left behind, prices dropped as nations tried to make a living off scavenging, foraging and ransacking fallen towns.
Possibly the only nation that did not show poverty was Gweat Bwitannica, which has $37k deposited into the capital, New Glasgow. Some older players are on the higher end of the money rate, with thousands in cash - Persistence has claimed to have over $40k, from his time with Carthage.
An extreme example of the Novan Drop, as I will call it, is the average price for a one-way, let me repeat, one-way trip with FlyNovus to Hawaii. Whether from Cape Town or Windau, it is around the same flight time. Nowadays, the flight costs $10. In October, the trip would set you back around $1,500. Why? There were more rich people in October who were willing to spend one-and-a-half thousand dollars for such a flight. They had so much money they had nothing to waste. Mention this price to a Novan player now, and only one or two would be willing to pay the price. The rest would stagger on your impossibly high price - after all, it's their entire pocket for a plane trip!
The Novan Drop has not gone well with the /vehicle command, as vehicle prices are the same now as they were then. For example, most people would've bought a Jeep for $3k in October. Now, nobody wants to buy something for such a high price.
This goes to show that Nova has changed, and it will most likely never recover."The article highlighted how Nova had changed from its golden age, October 2019, to February 2020, where few players played. It proved that yes, Nova was indeed dying a slow and painful death.
The Battle of Belgrade Edit
On February 26, 2020, the Carthage Empire declared war on Serbia, and began a siege on Belgrade. Members from Great Britannia, the Imperium Of Nova, and many of Serbia's own came to defend the large city from Carthage. Belgrade soon pushed back Carthage towards their eastern front. Carthage soon returned with replenished forces and flew into the middle of Belgrade, where the United States and Vietnam joined in and pushed Carthage back again. Carthage then dropped an atomic bomb on Belgrade. Initially losing their grasp, Belgrade forces eventually came and pushed back the Carthage forces, ending the battles for that night.
The Deletion of Nova's History Edit
On February 27, 2020, Realgreenfire1 deleted the Entire History of Nova for a few hours out of anger.
Moab's Last Stand Edit

Forces from the United States, Great Britannia, Vietnam, Canada, and many other nations fought in this long battle against the Carthage Empire. Front lines and walls were made as attacks came and went. Carthage, ultimately dominating the battle, was only ever hindered by atomic weapons. As the middle of the battle loomed, SuperTNT20, ADM8, and CaptainKorv supplied many nuclear weapons which were all used during this battle. A total of 4 atomic bombs were dropped on Carthage during warfare causing devastating effects. Carthage, ultimately emerging victorious, had killed almost every player multiple times. This battle will never be forgotten as one of the bloodiest battles of Nova's history. Eventually United_states collapsed and split.
The Fall Of The Carthage Empire Edit
On March 12 2020, Persistence_, a member of Carthage, set a siege on the capital of Great Britannia; NewGlasgow. Almost 30 members from the UNN came to defend the town as the Carthaginian forces were pushed back. Members of Carthage began to log out and leave the siege as they were being defeated. After, CaptainKorv and the South American Union declared war on the Carthage Empire by sieging their capital causing them to move their capital to Thwaite where Chickenboy102 and Utah sieged that town. Sneakymeaty then flew into the middle of the town, nuking it twice. This caused Persistence to disband the Nation and allowed the sieges to be won 3 days after due to half the Carthaginian military being banned at the time. CaptainKorv and DeltaOrion (Mayor of Carthage) quickly made a deal to hinder any further conflict that involved Carthaginian and SAU forces. DeltaOrion would order those at the siege to stand down, and the SAU would not plunder the town after the siege was won.
The Puerto Rican War Edit
On March 20, 2020, Vietnam declared war and set a siege on Puerto Rico due to their past malicious actions. Because many other nations already had plans to siege the town, they all came to get some action. The attackers mainly consisted of the Kingdom Of Bolivar's Royal Army (Formerly the South American Union) and the Republic Of Alaska. The attackers quickly pushed the defenders and trapped them into their homes, killing them multiple times. They got too confident as many logged off and allowed Puerto Rico to come back and fend off the attackers which set the siege back -2000 points. The Kingdom Of Bolivar used 2 nukes during this battle which allowed the attackers to reconvene. Leaving Vietnam to finish the siege, winning the siege.
The Death and Merging of Nova Edit

Many towns previously in the SAU left GB and remade the SAU with much smaller towns to cause less overall problems. On March 22, CaptainKorv permanently disbanded the South American Union for similar reasons as well as the new release of Elysia, the new datearth world, leaving their towns to join Daybreak and Great Britannia.
