The Ausferilandian Civil War was an armed conflict in northern Ausferiland. As ethnic and political tensions in the country continued to mount, Ausfer-Ziridavan activist Dragan Marko was found dead in the city of Glaz, suspected to have been killed by Ausferilandian security forces. Concurrent anti-goverment protests in the north of Ausferiland escalated into armed rebellions. Armed conflict officially began on September 2nd 2020, when the city of Glaz was taken over, and the Republic of South Kardzhali was declared by Bojidar Viktor. Since then, the Unified Kardzhali Armed Forces have advanced further south, to take the region which is known as Nordvernova in Ausferiland, and as South Kardzhali in Ziridava.

Background[edit]

Demographic tensions[edit]

Throughout the first half of 2020, minor clashes between pro-Ausferilandian and pro-Ziridavan groups had been increasing both in frequency and intensity, although full scale hostilities had not yet broken out. Although some argue that the civil war began when the first clashes began in February, this is generally not the consensus.
