Taungu was founded following the discovery of an immortal peacock in southern Burma. The people who found it immediately spread the word, uniting Burma, Thailand and parts of Malaysia under a single banner.
Taungu has been involved in multiple major conflicts.
WWIV was the conflict between the multitudinous nations of the Pacific Rim and the terrorist organization known as the Black Peace. Surprisingly, early on the Black Peace managed to steamroll Taungu and neighbouring Rizal.
