Making up the northern half of Valvania is the autonomous region of Czechvia. Despite recieving autonomous status Czechvia is continuing to fight for complete independence. For nearly thirty years the region and Valvania have been at war and in the process thousand of soldiers and civilians have been killed. However, as the conflict is only taking place along the Czechvian and Valvanian borders and within Czechvia itself the rest of Valvania remains mostly at peace with the exception of the odd bombing in a Valvanian city. The reason why Czechvia is going to such lengths to recieve indepence is supposedly because of its "distinct" and "unique" culture which is a mix of Slavic,Balkan and even Arabic heritage.The conflict itself began on Febuary 6 1983 after a number of bombings in Valenna, Valvania believed this to be the responsability of the Czechvian army and declared war on the region. Following this a bombing occurred in Bordska and the Czechvian government believed this to have been the responsability of the Valvanians. Although, neither Czechvia or Valvania claimed responsability for the attacks the war continued and it wasn't until 2000 that the group who were resposible for both attacks were the Czechvian Rebels terrorist group who claimed to have performed the attacks to begin a war between the two areas. Following, this the Czechvian and Valvanian army's both allied(bitterly) and turned the war against the Czechvian Rebels. Although, the Czechvian government claims that they are not affiliated with the group many believe they are. For now the war continues and the region remains violent and corrupt. However, many citizens on both sides are hoping for a peaceful end to the long conflict.

Throughout the entire course of the war the majority of the conflict has been centred in the former capital of Bordska which is situated on the Czechvian-Valvanian border. Today the city lies in ruins and the vast majority of citizens have fled either to Valvania or the new capital of Novistajia.

Located about 30 kms from Bordska is the town of Stravipol. Although it is small, the town is known for being the site of Vladimir Kjiric Airport and also a hub for humanitarian and media activities. Stravipol is also one of the few places in Czechvia that hasn't been badly damaged due to the conflict and because of this many think of the town as a safe haven.
The town of Stravipol and Vladimir Kjiric Airport. Due to the conflict the majority of passenger flights and airlines have left the airport however Air Czechvia runs flights to Valenna,Johannesgrad and two seasonal flights to Bucharest,Romania and Belgrade,Serbia. The rest of the operations at the airport are military and humanitarian.

The region's new capital. Originally a tiny town known as, Mishva it was renamed Novistajia(new city) and a massive relocation project was undertaken to relocate evacuated citizens from Bordska. In this period prefab apartment blocks went up, skyscrapers were constructed to house the Czechvian government and various companies. In addition to this a mosque was built in the centre of the city, heavy security was placed around the city to prevent attacks from the Valvanian army and also from the Czechvian Rebels(who during the course of the war were responsible for numerous bombings and attacks on both Valvanian and even Czechvian soil) and the historic Mirigrad Monastery was converted into an army base complete with missile silos,tanks and barracks for soldiers. Due to the fact that Novistajia is away from the border and away from the centre of conflict the city has remained fairly safe from any invasions or attacks with the exception of the occasional bombing and gunfight which are usually the responsability of the Czechvian Rebels and not the Valvanians.
