The Czech state, formerly known as Bohemia, was formed in the late 9th century as a small duchy around Prague, at that time under the dominance of the powerful Great Moravian Empire. After the fall of the Empire in 907, the centre of power was transferred from Moravia to Bohemia, under the Přemyslids. Since 1002 it was formally recognized as part of the Holy Roman Empire. In 1212 the duchy was raised to a kingdom and during the rule of Přemyslid dukes/kings and their successors, the Luxembourgs, the country reached its greatest territorial extent (13th–14th century). During the Hussite wars the kingdom faced economic embargoes and crusades from all over Europe. Following the Battle of Mohács in 1526, the Kingdom of Bohemia was gradually integrated into the Habsburg monarchy as one of its three principal parts, alongside the Archduchy of Austria and the Kingdom of Hungary. The Bohemian Revolt (1618–20) lost in the Battle of White Mountain, led to Thirty Years War and further centralization of the monarchy including forced recatholization and Germanization. With the dissolution of the Holy Roman Empire in 1806, the Bohemian kingdom became part of the Austrian Empire. In the 19th century the Czech lands became the industrial powerhouse of the monarchy and the core of the Republic of Czechoslovakia which was formed in 1918, following the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian Empire after World War I. After 1933, Czechoslovakia remained the only democracy in central and eastern Europe.
When the First Tiberium War began in 1999, the Czech Republic joined GDI to defeat the Nod forces in Europe. German Chancellor Helmut Bierman and the GDI Commander had to move their forces deep inside to sabotage Nod operations. All the Brotherhood of Nod forces retreated from Czechoslovakia and Eastern Europe to return home at Temple Prime in Sarajevo. The country also supported GDI during the Second Tiberium War, but with Nod's support on the other in 2047, the Czech Republic was cut off by a Yellow Zone in their country and occupied New Eden in Germany.
Red Alert Era
In wars between the communists and capitalist dogs, the Czech Republic became an affiliator to the Soviet Union. The country established a military base, so that Stalin can take over southern Germany as the others take Berlin off the European continent. In GWWIII, Romanov lent the country into the World Socialist Alliance and cruelly did the battles at the Black Forest by destroying three German bases and used a Crazy Ivan to assassinate General Carville who's leaving his office in the Pentagon. The country joined the Soviets, once again in the War of Three Powers and the Post-War Crisis to help the Red Army defeat the Allied Forces.
