    Polandball Wiki

    It's Il-leh-noy, not Il-leh-noys, not Ill-annoy, or Il-leh-WAH.
     
    Illinoisball
    Naming the town Ohio was sort of a fan suggestion that I’ve just rolled with now.

    I'm from Illinois, so I found it humorous. I also like pooping on Indiana and Wisconsin. Iowa though, you're cool.

    Illinoisball, officially the Khanate State of Illinoisball, is Illinnoyed by Higher Taxes a state of  USAball. He is very liberal because of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b88e2NRGzlk&t=2s. Illinoisball spends lots of money on healthcare and other liberal stuff to keep Chicagoball from annoying him, because of this he has a lot of debt. Whenever he puts on his top hat, or people mock his name, he becomes Illinoiscob. This is a reference to Abraham Lincoln and corn. Illinoiscob is tall because of this. This also makes him taller than Alaskaball.

    Illinoisball is portrayed as a corn farmer, representing Chicagoball in comics, or just a background characater. He usually is in debt because of Chicago. Taxes are high in this state for this reason. He is big in manufacturing but especially big when it come to agriculture. He is the second largest corn-producing state after his friend  Iowaball. He also ranks first in soybean production. He also has a Six Flags park. Six Flags Great America to be exact.

    His clay is mostly flat with hilly areas in the northern part. He is the second flattest state, after  Floridaball. His clay has 102 counties. The most populous county in the state is Cook county. The largest by area is McLean county. Most of his counties are very conservative, with some being tossups and big cities being liberal. He is more anglcized than his French family.

    He is well known to be the Land of Lincoln, as Abraham Lincoln resided here. It is for this reason that Illinoisball is relevant. Two other presidents also lived in his clay. One being the sucessfull commanding general, Ullysses S. Grant. He helped the Union win the civil war and another president, another reason why Illinois is relevant. And Barack Obama also lives here he was also another president. He helped reestablished realtions between  Cubaball and Illinoisball's father. In addition, Ronald Reagan was born here. He was tough on communism and helped the Western Bloc win the Cold War, making him relevant. One of his governors, Adlai Stevenson II, was the United States Ambassador to  UNball, which again, makes him relevant.

    He also has a lot of railroads in his clay. He has the second most miles of railroad track after Texasball. However, despite being second in mileage of tracks, he is the heart of the nation's rail network. This makes him an important rail hub.

    History

    Before American Revolutionary war

    Illinoisball was a 3ball that later formed the Illinois Confederacyball. The tribes of Illinois were privileged in their own way. Like the Mesoamericans all the way down in Latin America, the tribes of the Illinois Confederacy had built Temples known as the Cahokia Mounds which are still around as a historic site.

    Later on Franceball adopted him. He was a part of Quebecball, which was part of New Franceball. The natives of Illinois Confederacyball however declined from the diseases brought by French settlers and the invading Iroquois that pushed them off their lands.

    A lot of cities, towns, and villages in his clay have a lot of French names. Franceball spent some time exploring the land. Franceball then had a fight with British Empireball in 1756, part of a bigger fight known as the Seven Years War. British Empireball prevailed and gained the lands of New France east of the Mississippi River. Spainball then took the lands west of it. Because of of the war, British Empireball had to the Thirteen Coloniesball. This caused a revolt, in which the Thirteen Colonies wanted independence.

    American Revolutionary War

    British Empireball made Illinoisball as a part of Quebecball, who was basically controlled by the aforementioned British Empireball. Then, Franceball, Spanish Empireball, and Dutch Republicball joined , as well as some 3balls.

    British Empireball also had some 3balls on his side. They sent a lot of supplies to Thirteen Coloniesball, and British Empireball couldn't keep up. Quebecball was controlled by the British so he had to fight for them. He lost some territory to the 4 allies and after years of fighting, the 1783 Treaty of Paris was signed.

    Territory era

    All of Quebecball's southern clay was going to the new USAball. Illinoisball was a part of Northwest Territoryball along with OhioRawr, Indianaball, Michigancube, Wisconsinball, and part of Minnesotaball.

    After OhioRawr became a state, the Northwest Territoryball turned into Indiana Territoryball, then after Indianaball became a state, the extra clay was split between Michigan Territorycube and Illinois Territoryball. During his time as a terriotry, he was cleaning up and people were exploring his clay.

    Statehood

    He officially became a state on December 3, 1818. The capital was moved to Springfieldball. The rest of Illinois Territoryball's clay was merged with Michigan Territorycube. He also stole some land from what was to become Wisconsinball.

    He established a lot of cityballs in his clay, including https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b88e2NRGzlk&t=2s. In 1830, Abraham Lincoln moved to his clay, making him "The land of Lincoln". He opposed slavery and racism, so he made them both illegal. He was doing well, steel was booming, corn production had skyrocketed, as well as railroads and canals.

    Civil war

    Eleven states formed CSAball, a separatist countryball, because they liked slavery. He decided it was a good idea to bomb Fort Sumter. Illinoisball had 250,000 soldiers enlisted in the U.S. Army. He also helped slaves escape to their freedom. One of his fellow soldiers. At the time, one of his residents and his favorite person, Abraham Lincoln, was president, making him the most relevant state during the Civil war. So he sent a lot of soldiers to fight. Turns out, a lot died from disease, cold weather, or starvation.

    Because he was super relevant, he also made a lot of food for Union troops. Another resident, Ulysses S. Grant, sucessfully commanded troops along the Mississippi river, making him a lot more relevant. After four years of battle, the war was over, with USAball winning. Illinoisball was sad when Abraham Lincoln was killed while watching a play. To this day, he hates this racist who killed him.

    After the Civil War

    After the war, a lot of clean up was required. In 1869, he helped build a railway and the previously mentioned Ulyesses S. Grant was elected president, making him relevant. In 1871, Chicagoball accidentally set his clay on fire. Illinoisball and a lot of other cities came to help put him out and helped rebuild him, and new plans were laid out for the street grid. In 1886, a lot of Chicagoballs and Illinoisballs gathered and protested for an 8 hour work day. And to this day, many people work a 9 to 5 job, Chicagoball also hosted a exposition and it was very sucessful.

    Illinoisball was doing great. Lots of immigrants were coming, mostly German, with some Russian, and Polish sprinkled in there. This increased the population a lot. Steel was doing great as well, railroads were shutting here and there, and a lot of bad governors came and went as well as a lot of good ones.

    WW1

    Since Illinoisball was part of USAball, he gets into wars that USAball got into, for until 1917, USAball was neutral, until German Empireball wanted to invade USAball via Mexicoball, who was having a revolution at the time. Because of this, the usage of German in USAball dropped, as well as USAball going to war. Illinoisball was making lots of steel, and the Central Powers were weak. German Empireball had to surrender and Weimar Republicball had to pay reparations to the allies.

    This was followed by a pandemic, the Spanish Flu. This actually originated from Kansasball, not Spainball.

    Interwar period

    After the pandemic, the roaring 20's approached, with lots of cars, food, steel, roads being made. The dollar was also very powerful and people were living great. Then overproduction caused a stock market crash, leading to a global depression. Illinoisball had to take care of Chicagoball as well. This lasted 10 years. But at this time, somebody helped make pizza popular in America.

    In 1933, a racist came to power in Germanyball. This worried USAball, as he hates racism and genocide, but he did commit genocide before In 1939, war broke out in europe. He was sad when Polandball was crushed.

    WW2

    USAball stayed neutral for 2 years, until he embargoed Empire of Japanball and Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. That's when he decided to help Chinaball and UKball. He managed to do 2 offensives, with a sucessful landing on D-Day and another sucessful offensive in SE Asia. Illinoisball was making steel, guns, ammunition, bombs, etc to help with the war effort.

    With Nazi Germanyball's defeat and Japan's surrender, a victory was secured for the allies. Every state was relevant during the war, with food production, ammunition, etc. The first nuke in warfare was a huge sucess for the allies.

    Cold War

    This was an era that lasted 46 years. During these 46 years, a national road system was established, Soviet Unionball had nukes, a lot of war stuff. Illinoisball was still relevant when it comes to elections, but mostly irrelevant during other times, with the exception of materials and soldiers. In 1973, an oil embargo on USAball hurt the industrial secotr in Illinoisball big time. That's when most of him became part of the rust belt.

    In 1980, he finally became relevant when Ronald Reagan became President. Even though his career was in Californiaball, he was born in Illinois, which makes Illinoisball relevant. He was super relevant as Ronald Reagan was tough on communism and helped make the nation better. in 1989, he became irrelevant when Reagan's vice president, George H.W. Bush became president. He was born in Texasball. 2 years into Bush's term, Soviet Unionball collapsed. Marking a victory for the western bloc.

    Post-Cold War

    After the Cold war ended, there was an election, when Bill Clinton won in Illinoisball, he decided to switch to the left. He used to be a critical swing state leaning toward the right. He remained mostly irrelevant except for food and materials.

    He became relevant in 2009, when an Illinois resident, Barack Obama, became president. Illinoisball legalized Medical weed in 2014. He became irrelevant in 2017, when Trump became president. In 2020, he leglized all weed. Currently, Joe Biden, the former vice president of Barack Obama, is the president,so therefore Illinoisball is slightly more relevant because Joe is the former vice president of an Illinois resident. He is currently dealing with COVID-19.
