In the mid 1400s, the future PDRPT was a mass of warring tribes. In one tribe, the Stani, a leader named Pavel emerged. Under Pavel, the Stani began to win time after time against the enemy tribes, and soon, most of the area was united. Pavel was named Pavel the Great by the people, and a era of peace entered the lives of the newly formed Pavlostani.

For the next decade or so, Dictator Khamul controlled education and taught ethnocentric policies. Khamul was also an atheist, though did formulate a cult of personality around himself.
In 1500, the Ming from Inesea invaded. Caught offguard, the capital city of Glastonbury burned within months. Khamul retreated to Pavlostan, later to become the capital. The Khamulites inflicted terrible damage on the Ming armies, but in the end, it was not enough. The Khamulites were defeated and Khamul was burned at the stake.
The Ming ruled Khamul until 1680. They treated the Khamulites fairly, except in 1570, the Ming had an "ethnic cleansing" in which thousands of Khamulites were killed. Many years later, it inspired a larger genocide. In 1680 with the advent of handheld firearms, the Khamulites violently pushed the Ming out of Khamul. The leader of the resistance turned out to be a descendent of Pavel the Great, and was crowned the new Dictator.
In 1885, Pavel VII joined the AMEN alliance in the Former State of Miteria. Pavel VII also liscened the first members of the Khamulite Air Force that year. Five years later, during the Voerdeland Crisis of '90, Pavel sent peacekeeping troops into Voerdeland. These troops brutally pacified the Brandburg Region, and constructed Ethnic Labor Camps. Pavel was reminded of the Ming Genocide, and added the construction of gas chambers and crematoria to the inventory of the troops. For the next thirteen years millions of dissidents, Voerds, Christians, Jews, Muslims, Roma, Gypsies and Nyphrons, and those who participated in a minor uprising during the Voerdeland Crisis were sent to the camps. Ten million people died total, six million of them Voerdish.
In 1901, a Tschowan vessel attacked the Khamulite Fleet. Pavel VIII declared war two years later. A bloody four day conflict ensued between AMEN and the Cooperation. On the fourth day, Pavel liberated the camps, and held a ceremony on August 10th to honor the dead and praise the living. So ended the history of Khamul and begins the history of Pavlostani.
In 1903, Pavel VIII dissolved the Socialist State of Khamul and created the People's Democratic Republic of the Pavlostani Tribes. He focused on creating a nation that had democratically elected leaders, and more importantly, preventing genocides from occuring. Large bounties were put on the heads of the officers who ran Brandburg, but a few are still unaccounted for. The GBV has been given a blank check to hunt down and kill them. A specialized military program called Operation: Sentinel was activated in the hunt for surviving SAF officers.
A period known as the Time of Troubles began following the secession of Khamulist Hintindar under the Shari'a leadership of Emir Yusuf. Earl Brunilov of Percepliquis followed in suit, beginning the War of the Three Kings. Yusuf quickly captured Trent and Brunilov conquered Delgos. The war widened when the newly formed Emirate of Hintindar and the Ming Empire declared war on each other.
The War of the Three Kings was interrupted in 1906 following the ending of the Uli Vermar, also known as the War of Apelanese Aggression. Secretly urged by the SAF, the Apelanese Empire invaded Pavlostani from the south. Premier Pavel VIII signed an armistice with Hintindar and Percepliquis, and focused the military on the southern invasion. Most of Pavlostani was conquered by the Empire, winning only spare victories. The Pavlostani were ready to evacuate the acting capital of Vitograd, and flee north to the dying Former Aristocratic States of Inesea, when the Horn of Gylindora was blown and the new Nyphron Patriarch ended the war.
After the the second Uli Vermar began, the Pavlostani annexed the Apelanese Empire and resumed the War of the Three Kings.
in 1908, the war ended leaving Pavlostani in shambles. In the chaos, Tom Braiton negotiated Pavlostani's entrance into the Mishmite Union.
The Pavlostani stand normally at about 5' 11. Most have black hair and dark eyes. The Pavlostani bred with the Ming and created a mostly unique race, although the Ineseans are relatively similar. The Pavlostani are very sensitive about the Brandburg Genocide, and don't like mentioning it in polite company. Pavlostani's Special Operations forces are the SAF (Special Armed Forces). Their intelligence gathering and clandestine services agency is the Gosudarstveniy Bezopastnost' Voiska, or the GBV. Pavlostani's military contains a powerful navy, and a decent army. However, following the end of the War of the Three Kings, the Pavlostani army was experienced and professional, while the navy was severely crippled after the ending of the First Uli Vermar. Their air force is relatively weak, as Khamulite policies gutted the air program. The Pavlostani has been trying to get it back on track, but the air force is still laughable. The government is mostly leftist. The Premier has the power to declare war, veto laws, and make or break alliances.
Pavlostani is divided into many provinces. Each is ruled by a hereditary noble. Nobles function to govern provinces, setting laws and taxes, creating a highly feudal system. The most powerful nobles in Pavlostani are, Count Pickering of Galilin, Marquis Lanaklin of Glouston and Lord Federov of Percepliquis. Other nobles of significance are Emperor Brunilov of Percepliquis and Emir Yusuf of Hintindar. Most nobility are not of Pavlostani descent, rather from the west.
