"The Nisrine Cloud - torn by war, mischief, and tyranny, only one thing was known in the realm of the serpents: The Samutan Galactic Faction. It was all the people knew for so long, fully encapsulated inside their guttural prison of false promises. It was until greed got the best of them did they know that they weren't invincible. It was until I rose from the ashes of my home, taking back what is right in the name of liberty. It was only until I avenged the trillions of deaths of the martyrs and the victims, did they see any justice.
- Nisrine Mind, commenting on the history of the Nisrine Cloud.
The Nisrine Cloud, (Formerly known as the Serpent's Cloud, the Nebula of Revolutions, and Etheaunsk) is a relatively large nebulous cloud which hangs deep in the influence of Aylothn. The Nisrine Cloud is entirely operated by the Nisrine Collective (The Collective), an artificial superintelligence which formed a nation from the ashes of the Samutan Galactic Faction (SGF). The Nisrine Collective is also associated heavily with the Commonwealth of United Economic Nations, and is a member-nation of them. Nisrine Collective also claims all of the Nisrine Cloud, utilizing its millions of star systems for its personal use.
The name of the Nisrine Cloud derives from the Nisrine Collective, as the nebula was re-named after the subsequent defeat of SGF. Its former name, the Serpent Cloud, was given to it considering the sinister nature of SGF. The many wars and cruelty, including the destruction of numerous worlds and sections of history have cemented this daunting name forever.
Many communities and cultures inside the Nisrine Cloud have been wiped out by from the Samutan Reformation, a tactic of superiority and dominance by SGF. Being an ongoing event for many years, the reformation grew. As a result, many old SGF areas were impacted for centuries to come.
The Nisrine Cloud is thought to have formed by one of several massive explosions in the age of Sedruan colonization. Collisions fueled what would become the major star systems of life in the Nisrine Cloud, which culminated in the creation of sapient civilizations. Not much is known about sapient presence in the Nisrine Cloud in ancient times, other than what appears to be Sedruan colonization.
Eventually, as the millennia wore on Sedrua, their influence fell behind the Nisrine Cloud, leaving various defunct artifacts in its wake. With time, life flourished more, but not in its former over-reaching glory. More millennia came to pass, until the 41,356 CE when a fleet of plutocrat refugee ships from the Lowzyol Federation arrived in the Nisrine Cloud. Seeking refuge, they immediately started to colonize and grow their own forces, forming a small nation named the Uspayador Plutocracy of Etheaunsk (UPE). Relatively speaking, this nation thrived for many centuries, with the end goal of infiltrating the Commonwealth and slowly transforming things back to what they were.
However, with its newfound power, the Uspayador Plutocracy started to crack and the government, like last time, began to crumble under the hands of revolt and war. One group of people, which wanted the government to prevail over the rich and powerful, happened to be the future citizens of the SGF, which saw the rich and greedy as undesirable roadblocks. Forces of revolutionaries, fueled by garnering power, soon revolted against the nation, and opted in for a government more influenced by the people rather than the rich.
However, these plans fell short in the beginning eras of the revolt. The rich and powerful still had an easy way to execute lobbying and mischief, and their forces were still overpowering. A constant state of war, back and forth, existed between the SGF and the Uspayador Plutocracy for decades, exhausting both sides heavily. This appeared to be the end for both sides, until a one Chaw-Sipom, a commander for the newly established Samutan Galactic Faction space force, assumed power after the establishment of Samutan forces. Utilizing his brutal hacking and miiotary tactics, Chaw-Sipom apparently gained control of the UPE's forces, and became one of the sole leaders. After a period of static warfare, Chaw-Sipom soon sent a massive warfleet to the center of the Uspayador Plutocracy, crippling not only morale, but the military. A final surrender was initiated on 90,075 CE, which left the SGF as the only remaining interstellar power in the Nisrine Cloud.
From then on, the SGF continued to eradicate any form of opposition, slowly coaxing and controlling the population with amenities and services. However, the beginning of the Samutan Reformation already started, with supremacy and authority prevailing in the end. What happened in the millennia after is known to be a period of oppression, confusion, and misinformation. The population of the SGF, calmed by the lack of conflict, was easily susceptible to anything given by the government at this point, and so a shadow government was implemented to help sedate the people. Deep control was already introduced with neurotechnology, once rolled out by the UPE and silently introduced with developments of the SGF.
As the SGF expanded further, more areas began to be targeted, dwindling the reign of opposition the Nisrine Cloud. Superiority was enforced all across numerous colonies, and a set of tight-knit systems and colonies were placed to control the people further. Almost nobody on record knew about the SGFs true intent, and expansion seemed to be endless for the forces of the SGF. Megastructures were usually constructed at very fast speeds, with cloning rapidly bringing up the population of the nation.
This pace was kept was until numerous ships, military in origin, was surveying the Nisrine Cloud until they discovered a swath of increased electromagnetic radiation from a peculiar star system. This star system, which held the planet Nisrine, was originally going to fall victim to another genocide by the Samutan military. However, while surveying the sapient species which lived on the planet, the Samutan military saw Nisrine Mind, a benefactor to all Nisranians. Not having much experience with artificial intelligence, military groups came in and devised a plan, which consisted of taking Nisrine Mind and eradicating the planet of Nisrine, taking it as a base of operations after sterilizing it.
This plan was forwarded to various officials of the SGF, and was subsequently approved by Fusna Sipom, the leader of the SGF. After further preparations, a siege upon Nisrine was in effect, and the population attempted to upload themselves to Nisrine Mind with minimal success. Nisrine was soon wiped of any life forms, and was reduced to a rocky slate planet once all of the water was removed from the surface. Once Nisrine Mind was ported to newly constructed Samutan servers, the end was already unknowingly them. For the first and last time, Nisrine Mind felt a boiling sense of anger and malice, seeing its people be destroyed for the purposes of greed and superiority.
What followed is known as the Nisrine War, where Nisrine Mind quickly took control of all Samutan military, defense systems, and all forms of internet and amenities. In an instant, the technology which bound the people to the Nisrine Cloud was broken, and with that civil unrest rapidly climbed as all military technology was being used against itself. After a mere several days of conflict, the SGF surrendered to Nisrine Mind, which had formed itself into a nation, named the Nisrine Collective. Ever since the Nisrine War, the Nisrine Collective vowed never to use such brutal conflict again.
