The word Kastruneto derives from the Meso-Mormac place name Castrum Neto. Neto was the name of a Mormac deity and also the name of an early settlement located in present-day Botão. Around 200 BC, the Mesogean League colonized the inland of what is today Kastruneto. During the Dark Ages, the region around Castrum Neto became known by the Breislandic tribes as Kastruneto.
The Central Illypnian land that is now Kastruneto was settled in pre-Mesogean times by various Mormac tribes. The Mormac kingdom of NAME was later claimed by the Mesogean League and made into a province. U/C
After the fall of the Mesogean League, the area was invaded by NAME. U/C

Great Adonian War
Kastruneto was allied with Sarta and Volisania as a Coastal Power and annexed parts of Bayara and Hersatia. However, after the Echian defeat to Varkana and the ?? Revolution, President João Tribolet overthrew and arrested Zambujo, and the Kastrunetian Fascist Party in areas (mostly Western Kastruneto) controlled by the Brigadas Vermelhas was shut down. The new government signed an armistice with the Allies on DATE 1938. A smaller number of Kastrunetian troops, still loyal to Zambujo, continued to fight alongside the Sartans in the SARTAN ARMY. From this point on, the country descended in civil war, and a large resistance movement fought a guerrilla war against the Sartan forces. Zambujo was captured and killed on DATE 1938 by the Brigadas Vermelhas, and Sartan forces retreated to Sarta, while the civil war continued.
In 1939, Kastruneto formally joined the Allied Powers and gave a fundamental contribution to the victory against Sarta as one of the main Allied powers in Illypnia. The remainder of the war was initially inconclusive, as the Kastrunetian army got stuck in a long attrition war in the Dalian Mountains against Varkana, making little progress and suffering very heavy losses. With Sarta completely defeated in 1941, Breisland continued advancing northward and providing troops to the Kastrunetian efforts against the invading Varkans in the Battle of Kastruneto. The Allied began the Varkan Campaign in 1942, making rapid gains and defeating Varkana in 1943. The Kastrunetian victory marked the end of the war on the Kastrunetian Front and was chiefly instrumental in ending communist presence in Illypnia in 1944. Kastruneto and Breisland occupied Varkana and established the International Military Tribunal for Varkana in July 1944. The tribunal was modeled after the Onoba trial held in Sarta between 1941 and 1943.
During the Great Adonian War, Kastrunetian war crimes included extrajudicial killings and ethnic cleansing by deportation of about 30,000 people, mainly Communists, Pagans and Magdalenans, to the Kastrunetian concentration camps, such as NAME, NAME, NAME and elsewhere. In Kastruneto, unlike in Sarta and Varkana, few war crimes were prosecuted.
Post-war difficulties and Civil War
In 1981, following increasing sectarian tensions, a full-scale civil war broke out in Kastruneto. The Kastrunetian Civil War pitted the central government against the joint forces of left-wing Magdalenan and Petran militias. In July 1981 Kastrunetian President DUDE asked ZIAF to intervene and help restore peace.
U/C shit happened
In November 1987, peace negotiations failed as a result of differences between the Zamarran, Petrans, and Magdalenans. The Illypnian Assembly of April 1988 led to the formation of an Aetolian–Breislandic–Volisanian committee to solve the crisis. On 23 November 1988 the committee issued a peace plan which was accepted by all. A ceasefire was established, the ports and airports were re-opened and refugees began to return. In the same month, the Parliament agreed to the Theodosia Agreement, which included an outline timetable for ZIAF withdrawal from Kastruneto and a formula for the de-confessionalisation of the Kastrunetian political system. The war ended at the end of 1989 after eight years; it had caused massive loss of human life and property, and devastated the country's economy. It is estimated that TBD people were killed and another TBD wounded during the conflict. Nearly a million civilians were displaced by the war, and some never returned.
After the Civil War, the subsequent disintegration of Kastruneto's sectarian political parties led to the establishment of new ones, most notably the Democratic Party and the National Party of Reconciliation (PNR). The PNR was elected in 1989 after general elections were held monitored by the Adonian Community. The PNR governed Kastruneto from 1989 until 1997 through several coalitions and governments with Diogo Esteves as prime minister and independent Vasco Muñoz as president. Since then, there have been several other democratic changes of government: in 1997 Democratic José Carvalho was elected prime minister, in 2001 Esteves returned to power. A major corruption scandal involving Esteves and the PNR's establishment led to Esteves's resignation in 2003 and the election of the Socialist Fernando Batarda in the same year. Batarda was reelected in 2007 and again in 2011, but became increasingly unpopular due to his foreign policy, particularly his attempts at a rapprochement with Varkana. Democratic Érica Pereira was elected prime minister in 2014, becoming the first female head of government in Kastrunetian history. She was reelected in 2018 for a second term.
