Etymology[redigera | redigera wikitext]

Story[redigera | redigera wikitext]

"Yurka" comes from Kazácuhalmi yür ká "rural land" and refers to the country mostly consisting of forests, fields etc. In 1017 the name "Yürka" was coined but with the original meaning removed.

The Tai Vang names for Yurka, which include Sa Meng, originate from Kazácuhalmi "territory" and màng "sparsely populated" (which then becomes màng sá "sparsely populated territory").

Behind the scenes[redigera | redigera wikitext]

Likely of gibberish origin. Coined in 2010-2011.

The word "Yurkish" and its Swedish equivalent "yurkiska" among others originate from the word "Turkish" (in Swedish turkiska).

History[redigera | redigera wikitext]

Story[redigera | redigera wikitext]

Yurka has always been democratic and the government has always listened to the public, although the first leader that has declared himself democratic was Geunain Armiv, and he took over in 1579.

From about 9 000 BC until 1597, the territory of Yurka belonged to Greater Yurkish Union. Starting from that year, the territory would be known as Yurkish Empire. From November 21, 1597 to December 31, 1991 Yurkish Empire was involved with the Pitonian-Yurkish conflict. From 1836 to 1927, parts of the empire were given to Talrs, and returned to Yurkish Empire in 1927. The empire was officially dissolved on December 31, 1991, but the conflict would continue until December 20, 2013.

Reality[redigera | redigera wikitext]

Yurka was created around 2010-2011 (its existence becomes much clearer in February 2011 though) as one of many countries in one of Vanalker's imaginary worlds.
