|Great Terran War|
| Vanukean Alliance:|| Trigunian Alliance:|
The Great Terran War, also known as the Great War, the Terran War or the World War, was a major international conflict that lasted from 3988 to 4007. Generally regarded as the largest and most destructive single war in history, it involved over a dozen different countries, spanned several continents and caused the death of tens of millions of citizens across the globe. Furthermore, the impact that the war had on international relations led to centuries of mistrust and suspicion between countries across Terra.
The war split the world's most powerful nations into to two opposing alliances, led by Vanuku and Trigunia respectively. The Vanukean alliance included Majatran countries such as Cildania, Cobura and Barmenistan as well as Indrala and Hutori. Meanwhile Trigunia was supported by Jelbania, Mikuni-Hulstria and Kalistan among others. As a result, the war is often perceived as a conflict between two great powers competing for global influence.
The outbreak of conflict came as a result of an attempt by the Trigunia to intervene in favour of the Deltarian government in relation to their attempts to quell a slave rebellion in the country. As the Trigunian navy attempted to reach Majatra, they were engaged by Cildania. Prior to this, the the Cildanian Navy had been authorised to intervene in order to prevent any Deltarian ally attempting to enter the Majatran Sea. To the Principality of Vanuku, the implications of a Trigunians intervention into their sphere of influence would go against the nation's interests as it would have allowed for the Trigunian Federation to establish the necessary foothold in Majatra it had been hoping for posterior to losing influence in Cildania to the principality.
Majatra was the centre of the most devastating sections of the conflict.
