Overview[edit | edit source]
It is a struggling democratic rural survivor state in Buckinghamshire. It is now a provisional agrarian state with a population of about 15,675. The capital is at Buckingham, which is also the largest town in the nation. It exports small amounts of wool, potatoes stone and chalk. The state motto is: "If you're an enemy of the Chilterns, f**k off!". The national anthem is "On the road to freedom!"
The 'Free Chiltenates' were rural guerrilla bands of Buckinghamshire anti-TBA resistance fighters, who fought the TBA's occupation of northern and central Buckinghamshire. Initially, they were composed of young, mostly working class, White and Asian men who had escaped into the hills and woods to avoid racism, homophobia, conscription into forced labour units and penal servitude in the notorious 'Terminator Chalk Mine'. As time went by they formed increasingly organized into active resistance groups and took over a most of northern Buckinghamshire, along with territory around Brackley, Wendover, Kings Sutton and Deddington.
History[edit | edit source]
Doomsday[edit | edit source]
Culham Science Centre\Culham Laboratories (10kt), RAF Benson (10kt), RAF Chalgrove (10kt), RAF Weston-on-the-Green (10kt- It missed and hit Oxford city center), BoD Bicester (10kt), Northampton (200kt), Oxford (100kt), RAF Croughton (10kt), RAF Barford St John (10kt), RAF Upper Heyford (10kt), MoD Kineton (10kt) and RAF Bovingdon (10kt) were nuked.
The brutal American training regime had always left them open to PTSE and Fragging. The White British and American force were at least in part prone to racism, sexisum, homophobia and post atomic war trauma issues.
The cruel and hate fueled TBA ruled the region for years after that. The British army and USAF commanders of the future TBA were cracking up and slipping in to a state of clinical paranoia due to heavy post-war PTSE.
The TBA had taken over Milton Keynes, Leighton Buzzard, Hemel Hempstead, Blaby, Kettering, Corby, Market Harborough, Greens Norton, Wolverton, St Neots, Oakham, Bletchley, Towcester, Bedford, Luton and many other nearby places over the years. The unofficial TBA mottos and popular war cries were: "Bugger off darkie foreigners!", "No surrender to the IRA!",Never trust the FGR!", Put Zion under the flat iron!", "Better dead than red!", "No surrender to the GDR!", and "Death to fagots and nancey boys!". They well summarized thire toxicity racist, homophobic, anti-Communist and anti-Semitic mentally.
The opencast quarrying for ironstone at Ryebury Hill and Sidegate Lane, on land he owned on the south west edge of Finedon, Northants, ended in 1980, but restarted in 1987. It was one of the TBA's most prized assets. Buckingham is surrounded by sand pits and the penal 'Terminator Chalk Mine' opened near Princes Risborough in 1992. It was run by the Penal Labour Commission as their owners until after the Buckinghamshire rebellion.
1988-2006[edit | edit source]
Buckingham and Brackley both found the American-centric militaristic racist cult offensive and rejected it's plans to assimilate them in 1988.
Northern Buckinghamshire, mid Buckinghamshire and the Brackley area was violently annexed by the TBA between 1988 and 1992. It had been a collection of poor, minor, struggling, city states and united village states before that. Resistance would be weakened the year before by a outbreak of salmonella food poisoning incident in Buckingham and Wing.
The centre-right wing President-Mayor and the town council were all shot a few days after the TBA took over. A elderly Indian bloke was also shot the next week when he refused to kiss the new TBA overseer's naked feet.
Brackley was the first to fall in 1988, most of northern and central Buckinghamshire them fell in 1989, with only a small pocket remained free around the lightly fortified towns of Aylesbury and Wendover by 1992.
The TBA had taken over Milton Keynes, Leighton Buzzard, Hemel Hempstead, Blaby, Brackley, Kettering, Corby, Market Harborough, Greens Norton, Wolverton, St Neots, Oakham, Bletchley, Towcester, Bedford, Luton and many other nearby towns over several earlier years.
As the years passed the cruel and hated hand of the TBA would gradually influence large pats of north Buckinghamshire. TBA troops from Luton and Bedford soon crushed any local resistance in the region.
An unknown person wrote in chalk on a Buckingham pavement "F**k off racists!" on December 1st, 2002. A local TBA sympathiser soon had it removed.
Mounted tribal raiders from north Oxfordshire attacked the TBA border towns of Deddington, Woodford Hales and Hinton-in-the-Hedges with some success in 2006.
2007-2010[edit | edit source]
A 28 strong Pro-Harold Macmillan, Winston Churchill, David Lloyd-George, Bill Benyon (the pre-war MP) and Clement Attlee leaning militia styled on the World War II Maquis was formed in Buckingham, Finmere and Padbury in the wake TBA's homicidal destruction of the March 25th, 2007, Loughborough food riot; mid 2007 to late 2008 Brackley-Daventry-Long Buckby food riots, The early 2009 Towcester farmers' tax strike and the May 25, 2009, blacksmiths' tax protests in Daventry by both a Kettering based occupation Battalion and the numerous local TBA platoons in the protesting localies. The local operation hid low for a few years and plotted thire way to power.
The attempted TBA exploration around Aynho and Kings Sutton in 2008 also lead to further clashes with tribal raiders from Banbury and Bloxham. The locals of Ting, Aylesbury and Wendover also fought back with limited success against the overstretched TBA tried to take over thire lands to. During this expedition, a military camp was temporarily set up by the TBA in the struggling rural village of Aynho, near the mostly ruined town of of Banbury.
Their first act was to steel some tools, a Colt 45 pistol and a few black powder mining explosives from Ryebury Hill and Sidegate Lane mines in 2009. The TBA executed all suspected rebels at the mine.
A young anti-TBA activist then mooned at a Buckingham statue of Sir Oswald Mosley on October the 12th, 2010. He was beaten to death by a local TBA platoon member as punishment the next day. A angry old man burst in to the local TBA district commander's office 2 months later and was shot dead for shouting at him and his staff "The True British Army are the True Bol*ks Army!" and "Death to the True British A**holes!".
The next day a 5 man TBA patrol was beaten up by local rebels in North Marsden and thire combat kives were stolen. The TBA shot several innocent locals as an act of spiteful revenge the next day, which both temporally cowed and permanently pissed off the local villagers. A rebel was accidentally betrayed and hung a week later.
A second TBA 5 man patrol was attacked by local rebels in nearby Oving on December 3rd, 2010 and a Enfield No. 2 Mk I revolver was stolen of them. The TBA again shot several innocent locals as an act of spiteful revenge the next day, which both temporally cowed and permanently pissed off the local villagers.
2011-2014[edit | edit source]
The Free Chiltenate rebels blew up 3 members of a Template:1983DD 20 man security squad in Brackley early 2011 with some stolen black powder mining explosives. A first aid kit, 2 baseball bats and a Colt 45 pistol were stolen of them in the attack. 6 of the 8 attackers were found and shot the next day. In its wake 2 more locals joined the rebellion.
As the TBA's sudden eastern collapsed in 2011 they came to prominence and their ranks swelled to 135 after they assassinated the TBA district commanders in Brackley and Buckingham in early 2012.
Over the next 2 1/2 years they would take over Buckingham, Aylesbury, Wendover, Brackley and several towns around them. Their knives, axes, baseball bats, cricket bats and billhooks would cut in to many TBA and other fascist opponents in the Buckinghamshire and Brackley area. Their ranks gradually grew to 345 with their victories, with Towcerster and Daventery joining in the rising with their own local rebellions.
The TBA strongholds of Stoney Stratford (which still causes major trouble to this day) and Cheddington did defeat them locally in 2014, bringing an end to any more serious fighting with the TBA's remnants. The The Chilternate Republic was declared in Buckingham on December 3rd, 2014. Towcerster and Daventery would officerly join it on December the 31st.
2015-to date[edit | edit source]
The Template:1983DD and Template:1983DD made friendly contact in 2015. The 2019 poll on merger with Essex showed 23% wanted to join Celtic Alliance, 26% wanted the Essex, 12% wanted New London, 1% wanted to join Woodbridge, 5% did not know and 34% wanted to remain independent.
The resultant unrecognized rag-tag rural state had modest, bus rising local support, based on the ending of antisemitism, the ending of racism, democratic elections, secure bread supplies and the crude use of force to resolved local food shortages. A democratic presidential and government election took place in 2017. They are currently at a low level war with remnant TBA elements in Stoney Stratford and and Cheddington, as well as bandits from Banbury in Deddington and Hinton-in-the-Hedges.
Recent Chilternate exploration around Aynho, Deddington (in ruins), Ardley (in ruins) and Kings Sutton have also lead to renewed clashes with tribal bandits from the remnants of Banbury and Bloxham.
Landscape[edit | edit source]
The Chiltern Hills are formed by an outcrop of chalk, overlain by clay-with-flints, on the north-western side of the London basin, which stretch across southern England from the Goring Gap in Oxfordshire over to near Hitchin in Hertfordshire.
In 1965, a large part of the Chilterns was designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
The region's chalk strata have been tilted to create a dip slope that falls gently towards the south-east.
Chalk forms the central backbone of Buckinghamshire, running from east to west and forming the scarp face of the Chiltern Hills.
This rock is some 300m thick across the county, and is a distinctive soft, white limestone. The basal unit (Grey Chalk Subgroup, or Lower Chalk) has a higher clay content and contains no flint.
Haddington Hill (also called Wendover Hill) is a hill in The Chilterns, and the highest point in the English county of Buckinghamshire. On the north-eastern flank is Coombe Hill, not to be confused with another Coombe Hill 4 kilometres to the south-west.
The two highest points in Buckinghamshire are Haddington Hill in Wendover Woods (a stone marks its summit) at 267 metres (876 ft) above sea level, and Coombe Hill near Wendover at 260 metres (850 ft). Mineral extraction Quarrying has taken place for chalk, clay for brickmaking, gravel and sand in the river valleys.
Buckingham is surrounded by sand pits. The democratic Aylesbury Vale District Council replaced the TBA's Industrial and Penal Labour Commission as their owners after the rebellion. The penal 'Terminator Chalk Mine', is near Princes Risborough was closed in 2016.
Whittlewood Forest occupies a modest area for a forest and is broken up by fields (in the southern arm close to Milton Keynes which reaches to the Great Ouse) and this surrounds Whittlebury, the fields south of the upland village of Paulerspury on straight, Roman Watling Street which passes through the forest.
