Most early records were destroyed during a widespread genocidal conflict on the Island so little is known prior to the conflict. Troops of 1st ,8th and 10th Infantry Divisions with the mix navy fleet and air force from Imperial seized the island to restore order. Nations like AHSCA and Motokata, assisted in stabilizing the Island and after much of the heavy fighting had ended including restoring the scared landscape. Still there remains pockets of terrorist activity which rely on frequent sweeps to maintain peace and order.

After the conflict subsided Senators from AHSCA approached Imperial Commanders about cultivating the island for farming. Imperial agreed to give access to AHSCA island residents and other civilian participants with the hope to reduce food prices for citizen and increase the culinary diet of islanders. The Island remains primarily under Imperial control today.

[edit] Farming Projects

Modest built homes were put in by AHSCA islanders for farmers to buy or rent out. Most who have come to farm have come for a perminant basis. To maintain healthy soil The Farming Association of Eeri had meetings with AHSCA senators and future farmers to educate on crop rotation and proper use of fertilizer and other chemicals.
