History : Niokolo Koba has been only recently rediscovered by the so-called modern world.
An expedition from Phenixia have met a very cheerful civilization ressembling the aborigines of coastal and fluvial Africablue, speaking a dialect related to Dioula.
Contact have been very easy and a treaty of Partnership has been signed with Casimir-Ibrahima Diatta, the Chief of Niokolo Koba.
The words of this treaty placed the young nation of Niokolo Koba under the protection of Phenixia, while Phenixia engaged itself to provide Niokolo Koba with an important help in the economic and technological development.
Both Nations remain distinct however and may put an end to this agreement at will. The population is made of dark skinned peasant and sedentary traders.

The 4th of June 998, Chief Diatta chose to put an end to the special status of Niokolo Koba and assume total independance for its country with total approval from Phenixia. Close trade links will be continued. Phenixia guarantees the neutrality of Niokolo Koba.

Depuis le début de l'an 1000, des réfugiés franchissent périodiquement la frontière Avant fuyant la région du Kalam. Face à cette instablilité, le Niokolo Koba s'est résolé à moderniser son armée et à renforcer ses liens avec les pays amis, notamment le Boudiou et le Thistland qui partagent le même problème.

Religion : Niokolo Koba is entirely animist. Ancestors may inhabit every living being from grass or insects to elephants (chiefs and holy people are suppose to reincarnate in elephants). Complex religious cleansing ceremonies are held each time that a living being is trampled or killed, so religion takes a lot of time for Kobans.

Every three months, each Cercle send 2 representative to Dianamalary, The capital of Niokolo Koba where they stay in the National Assembly room as long as they need to reach a consensus agreement about national affairs.
