The Warring State of Libya - A Country at War

[Media] Factions of the Second Coalition
Factions of the 2nd Coalition

The rise of the Green Army from the rubble of the Ali Clique was concerning for those settling in the west. While major powers such as the Libyan National Army and the Free State of Sabha scoff them as nothing more but a warring band, tales of their success threatens the legitimacy and more importantly the popular support for the local factions around Tripolitania, fearing the nostalgia for the old government will eventually incite a massive revolt.

It wasn’t until their occupation of Hajr made them realize that they have become an actual threat; mustering over +50,000 fighters in a matter of weeks and arming themselves with the leftovers of the former clique. With it, a new coalition was formed to eliminate this young but ambitious incursion- carrying the name of the first alliance that fended off the Algerian Army back in 2022.


General Council of Tripoli

History - After the exile of the original Government of National Accord and the Presidential Council, a new council was formed after the capital was left in a power vacuum, formed by some members of the Haftar’s defunct organizational body - the House of Representatives. Led by one of Haftar’s former proteges, they were able to exploit the lawless capital and stabilize it into a tolerable degree. Life was relatively peaceful until Algerian Intervention ended, with their first Prime Minister resign for unknown motivations, with conspiracies following the event.

Characterization - Despite boasting themselves as the new legitimate government of Libya, the rest of the world scoff their claims as both laughable and baseless. Despite their obtuse reputation, they’re one of the biggest contributors to resisting the Algerian Intervention; assisting the 1st Coalition with heavy guns and able-bodied men. They also played a role in stopping Islamic State from marching towards the capital alone, pushing them back to Misrata.

Emblem - The emblem was designed by the 1st Prime Minister of the organization, who used to work for a marketing company as an Illustrator. The inscription means the General Council of Tripoli - State of Libya. The landmass represents the legitimacy of their government and the star in the west represents Tripoli as the only bastion of order and stability.

Qassem Clique
History - One of many factions that bickered during the Scourge of Tripoli, the Qassem Clique settled at the fringes of West Libya after failing to conquer the entire region for themselves. They secured what speck of domain they have after defeating the Clique of Surman. They joined the 1st Coalition against the Algerians, riding their trucks and heavy guns to secure their flanks during the Battle of Sinawin. The relation with the GCT soured during a controversy where its leader claimed their legitimacy is as dubious as the Prime Minister’s birth.

Characterization - The Qassem Clique was named after its sole commander - Hasim Al-Qassem. Despite their pretense to restore the country under a democratic government, the clique is comparable to all the warlords scouring throughout Libya: a military junta with a semi-functioning civilian government, able to sustain the population enough to not incur a revolt. They’re a powerful military force with 100 tanks at their disposal, sometimes using them as artillery if the need arises.

Emblem - The shield represents the idea of them being the defenders of Libya and Its people. The emblem was designed by a Swedish head cook who was kidnapped by one of the Libyan Corsairs, later bought by Qassem in exchange for his service who mistook him for an artist. Forced to design it in exchange for his freedom, the captive made one after scrounging through the internet for a tutorial. Despite the lukewarm reception from his peers, Qassem was delighted by this and send him back to Tunisia with a wallet full of cash.

Clique of Surman
History - They occupied a large quarter of West Libya before being defeated by Qassem and his soldiers during a surprise attack; losing territories stretching from Ras Jadyr to Zuwara. They waged war against the Twin Cities to recuperate the losses but the results were marginal at best. The clique played a tremendous role in West Libya: being one of the few to defend Sinawan and helped the GCT against the Islamic State offensive.

Characterization - Despite being an avid loyalist to Haftar, they’re one of the few bands of soldiers to refuse to recognize the Libyan National Army as the bearer of his legacy. They were described to be one of the least dysfunctional forces among all cliques; with the sincere goal to restore Khalifa Haftar’s vision into the light. They are stern in imposing justice among all people regardless of differences. However, like any warlords around Libya, they’re nevertheless a despotic fiefdom; forcing people to produce as many goods for their war effort.

Emblem - The inscription means the Army of Surman - State of Libya. The hawk hovering over the crescent symbolizes their soldiers as the valiant defenders of Libya and its independence. Its history is rather tame, made by a child during a competition organized by the clique to make an emblem with the best design. He was rewarded with 200 Dinars after being picked as the winner.[/SPOILER]

Twin Cities of Az Zawiyah and Al Aziziyah
History - The proto-state was formed under a union between two cities threatened by the cliques that aspire to take their city. Taking the town of Aswani, they were able to secure the roads that connect them into a contiguous political polity. They defeated the Clique of Surmun during their offensive and were suspiciously neutral during the Algerian Offensive around Fezzan.

Characterization - The Twin Cities was one of the most prosperous factions during the early years of the 3rd Civil War, with Az Zawiyah being the main contributor due to possessing both the Zawiyah Refinery and oil field near the city while Al Aziziyah is large human-trafficking market within the region. These economic advantages helped them sustain their independence from the clique and the GCT, purchasing a decent amount of guns and ammunition to sustain their levies.

Emblem - The two stars symbolize the two cities running side-by-side while the Libyan tricolor represents their homeland. The flag was made by an Italian Illustrator hired through the internet to design a simple but elegant standard for their rule. The man was later taken into question by the State Police whether he has any connection with the human-trafficking scheme or the corsairs, later released after finding no substantial information to help them.

Free City of Gashir
History - After ousting the Usman Clique from Gashir, they formed a democratic government of their own to establish a liberal institution brought by the Government of National Accord. Expanding their influence as far as Tarhuna, they were able to defend their core territories by mustering whatever men they could bring. They sent 800 men to fight against the Algerians and they were one of the few who defended Tripoli from ISIS incursion, serving as a stronghold to defend the rear of the capital.

Characterization - The Free City can be described as “democratic”, a government ruled under what they perceived to be the Rule of Law and progressive outlook, despite the growing presence of corruption looming behind the scenes. The fighting spirit is comparable to the militias in Misrata, hardened and zealous against the forces of tyranny and the old regime. They also mustered over 2,500 men during the formation of their institution, large enough to cover whatever dominion they have.

Emblem - The flag is a corrupted version of the original design, once meant to bear the original design but later abandoned because of technical issues and preferences. As materials to mass-produce flags slowly wane due to foreign sanctions, they dye their flag with whatever ingredients they have. To make the process more cost-efficient, they cut it in half and remove the crescent, making it easier to produce without worrying about the design.

Factions of the 2nd Coalition - A Follow-up

Again, I'm sorry if I didn't publish anything since my departure. Other than coming up with the writing, I was focusing on my first video on mapmaking. When you're trying to write something, you have to be sure that it's consistent with your vision and intent, not departing beyond from its themes and setting. So far, this is basically a teaser for the upcoming map that follows. I'm planning to publish it in 3 days but considering I failed to meet the promises I made back then, I'm just going to add that there might be some setbacks.

Other than the map, I'm still writing a full page on the TIME Magazine Issue; I have a clear idea of what it's going to be and what type of stuff I want to present to you guys. Writing a page about the growing threat of Chinese Hegemony is fun, especially if you're roleplaying as a John Mearsheimer-esque analyst that shits on the current state of the United State military.

Anyway, have fun! And here's a glimpse of what is to come.

Wait, I'm confused--the map shows Tripoli firmly under Green Army control; has there been a retcon?
It's still under their control, my dude. The post is just an explanation over one of the many factions that once ruled the shattered region before the Green Army kicked them out from the capital on November 13th, 2025. They consolidated their rule over the entire region on December 23rd and still continue to this day, more specifically April 12th, 2026.

One question I have, is how are refugees from Libya and the people living abroad treated? I would guess that they have it pretty bad (not as bad as while in Libya) probably due to the Slavers in the region.

They pretty much relocated to somewhere isolated since growing sentiment against them soars. Places like the Balaeric Islands and Crete is where they've settled in, concentrated inside camps sustained by both the UNCHR and EU. How the facilities are maintained varies: the camps in Crete are described as being chaotic due to negligence while the ones on Sicily are surprisingly well-maintained.

Whether they're Libyans who fled from a Civil War or Sub-Saharan Africans trying to flee from their countries, sentiment against them soars that even some leftist parties decide to reconsider their policies on the subject. A lot of incidents, whether it's actually related to them or not, doesn't make their presence much easier for the locals - they generally stay away from them. Some even take action to the sea, vigilantes like the Sailing Pepe was organized by an alt-right YouTuber to fend off the refugee boats back to the south... and let's just say it didn't end well. Only a few didn't face the same sentiment, mostly high middle-class folks that have useful trades for private enterprises to hire them.

Sorry for answering this late, too busy with DayZ to answer.
[Map] Liberation of Tripoli - 2025
The Liberation of Tripoli - 2025

"We urge the world to support us in our most dire time. They have slaughtered our men through deceit and threaten to rekindle the tyranny that we've worked so tirelessly to overthrow." - Mahmud Al-Walid, Prime Minister of the General Council of Tripoli

The triumphant victory over the Second Coalition during the Battle of the Plains has rippled a shockwave across Libya. With word of mouth spreading throughout the streets, not only the Green Army crushed a force larger than their own through sheer cunning and iron will, it emboldens the underlying nostalgia for Gaddafi’s rule into a euphoric frenzy. Many rallied behind Za’im’s inevitable arrival, some formed militias of their own to support him; harassing the coalition and clearing the southern hemisphere for them to march towards the capital.

Cities stretching from Ghariyan to Bin Ghashir has fallen into their hands, securing a major highway that will eventually lead them to Tripoli. With no one from the skies to oppose them; destroyed through the means of subterfuge, the capital is ripe for the taking. However, unwilling to liberate the capital through a mindless meat grinder, he ordered his forces into a standstill and accumulate as many resources to their brothers and sisters in Tripoli; infiltrating within the enemy ranks and binding their time.

This has also given the coalition the opportunity to regroup. Desperate to turn the tides, they begin accumulating as many able-bodied men as possible and dismantle any material available to form tight fortifications around the streets. However, the blow of morale during the Battle of the Plains has become a complete detriment to their ability to defend the capital. A sizable amount of their soldiers deserted from their post to avoid retribution from the Green Army. Nevertheless, the more hardened militias who fought since the first days of the revolution are willing to defend the capital, standing against the tides in the meager hope that they could win.

The Green Army, after days of deliberate scheming, marched towards the last stronghold of the coalition. Many underground cells have managed to incite sequences of uprisings across the metropolitan area, securing districts ranging from Gorje to Abu Sittah. Supported by artillery barrages, they managed to push the militias back further from the outskirts of the city, eventually leading to one of the most sluggish house-to-house warfare in Libyan history.


"We have driven them back from the sands whimpering like a dog during the Battle of Murqub, brothers and sisters. Now, the people over the capital are chanting for our triumph and we shall make it so!" - Za'im the Tuareg, Qayid of the Green Army

November 13th - The Green Army took over the fringes of the capital, occupying facilities like such as the Jalaa Maternity Hospital and the Al-Quds Mosque with little to no resistance. They were also able to take over the hospitals around the Az Zawiyah Street interstate before the garrisons could make a stance, retreating towards Garden City, a district surrounding the Museum of Libya and the University of Refak. The office of the Prime Minister was scorched to the ground by the GCT forces, with the locals speculating over its intent. The Al-Juwaili Barracks and Hnaish Mall were able to resist the assault, however.

November 14th - The battle begins to escalate over the district surrounding the Sidi Munedir Cemetary, with the Green Army struggling to take over the Government Printing Press and the Al-Dua Radio Station. An artillery barrage was considered but eventually denied due to potential backlash from the local populace. The struggle to claim Al Juwaili Barracks has ended in a peaceful note, however. The commander of their post decides to surrender in exchange for clemency for him and his men.

November 15th - After days of skirmishing, the Green Army finally took the Coral Oil Port and the Tripoli Eye Hospital from the coalition hands, with most of the garrisons either surrendered or scattering through the frontline. With most of the equipment and ammunition from the Juwaili Barracks accumulated to all of their men, they begin to march towards Garden City. The detachment from the west is struggling to secure the Al-Kurnish Road due to the Tripoli Tower; serving as an observation post for their commanders to keep their eyes on the situation.

November 16th - The Al Du’a Radio Station and the Government Printing Press has been finally secured after days of struggle, securing the eastern flank surrounding the cemetery and even taking the garrisons as prisoners. The eastern detachment begins to assault the fortifications near Zutheina Oil Company and the roundabout of Al Shat Road. Rumors begin to spread as scouts of the Green Army reported that Mahmud's civilian government are evacuating from the capital, heading towards Zuwara to be eventually escorted to France.

November 17th -
The Green Army has made a breakthrough over the Refak University after one of the militias made an initiative to infiltrate the building, disguising as coalition forces to cause havoc and confusion among their ranks. As they secured the 7 October Stadium, the Green Army used it as a stationary block and rallying point for the militias and begin to plan their offensive against the Tripoli Tower. Forces from the center also begin to take stations for a massive wave against the stronghold Sidi Munedir, to hasten the battle the local populace become malcontent over the situation.

November 18th -
With reinforcements from Ghariyan arrived to support them, they begin to assault the stronghold through a massive wave of attacks; supported by tanks acting as fire support. The battle has also given the Green Army the opportunity to raid the Zutheina Oil Company, attempting to cut them from the forces old Al Shat Road roundabout vulnerable to frequent attacks. This eventually forced to retreat towards the Martyr's Square, a complex within the district of the Old City.

November 19th - The situation has become dire for the coalition: the local resistance around Sidi Munedir and the following district has fallen and the rumors of their political superiors abandoning them to their fate have spread across the ranks. Defection eventually seeps through, with thousands begin to sneak from their post; brandishing themselves as ordinary civilians to escape from retribution. The City Hall was burned to the ground with the same possible intent surrounding the Prime Minister's Office.

November 20th -
As victory became inevitable, the Green Army is pulling back some of its forces to prepare their next expedition to the far western regions, starting with the city of Janzur. With the eastern and western corner of the city secured from enemy threat, they were ready to march towards the heart of the Capital - the Old City of Tripoli.

November 21st -
With no fleet to turn the tides and their representatives abandoning them to the wolves, the Second Coalition are making their last stand against the Green Army. The latter begins to surround the Old City, leaving no gap for them to retreat completely intact. A wave of militias begins to flood the district, accumulating into a chaotic scene of house-to-house warfare. The battlefield eventually devolved into a series of pockets for the coalition, leaving them in disarray as Green Army pick them out one-by-one, ending the battle for good.

"Tripoli's fucked. Now what?" - Ljubomir, Chief Commander of the Free State Army

After declaring victory over the liberation of their capital, people begin to pour into the streets as the old regime has been toppled from the throne. After years of hiding from coalition repression, the zealous crowd cheered for the Green Army as liberators and paraded the green flag once again. Gaddafi’s legacy begins to dominate the scene and Za’im has been hailed as a personified successor to his ideals despite facing scrutiny from his exiled family.

With it comes a new wave of repression as sequences of manhunts for coalition sympathizers begins to crawl over into every corner of the capital. Those who were caught were paraded across the street and humiliated by a massive mob screeching at their ear - branding them as compradors and collaborators of the foreign plot.

The reactions from foreign countries seem to be ambivalent with their triumph, with Israel and Chad being the only few to be genuinely concerned over their rise to power. The United States, under a new administration, condemned them like any forces besides the Presidential Council as illegitimate pretenders of Libya.

Their victory was a wake-up call for the rest of the factions wallowing over Libya. The Libyan National Army pleaded with the rest of the clique from Cyrenaica to join forces against the impending threat. The Islamic States, content with the power vacuum that keeps their western front safe, now preparing a valiant defense in Misrata to prevent a massive breakthrough. The Free State of Sabha, fearing a cutdown of their water and oil, collaborated with their neighbors and contain them.

Their entry to the civil war has become a turning point for the country. With Tripolitania united under a single banner, a new power has risen from the woodwork and ready reunite Libya into a single whole, galloping across the sands and trampling over their enemies with a massive cry.
Apart from nostalgia for Gaddafi, what are the Green army like in terms of ideology and what kind of state are they trying to build?

It's a combination of Za'im's interpretation of the Green Book and his own original thoughts. They're more religious compared to what Gaddafi has in mind and less concerned over the matters in the Arab World and put a greater emphasis on their African brothers. In fact, they're pretty cynical towards the former due to their support for the revolutionaries back in 2011. Za'im believed that violence is the only language the westerners could understand and it is their right to utilize that fact against them. They also don't concern themselves over secularism, but that's another can of worms to solve later.

And yes, they can be described as socialist, albeit they don't use the term themselves. They're basically reminiscent of Makhno's Free Territories in Ukraine and the Houthis.

In terms of what kind of state they wanna build, Za'im laid out on what he has in mind for the state he envisioned for Libya:
  1. A Communal Economy: Za'im never denies the early benefits of a market-economy and even capitalism, but he argues the system to be fragile. He wants a system where everyone participates in the economic development of their homeland and sharing those values equally to everyone, relying on their own industry to supply their own needs.
  2. A Green Libya: He argues that Libya is under the mercy of famine due to the lack of a robust agricultural base, relying on imports to solve their food stocks. He envisioned his country filled with crops, a country of endless green. That's why he always encourages volunteers of specialist backgrounds, especially when it comes to agriculture and horticulture, to stay behind the frontlines and support their project for Libyan Greenification.
  3. A Country That Can Defend Itself: His thoughts on the 1st Coalition (not the 2nd) made him realize that everyone needs to participate over the struggle over the country, not just their soldiers. He believes that what stands between victory and defeat is dependant on the will of their folks to fight.
Anything else you wanna ask?

How do you make your maps/resources? It's so professional.

I personally want to make my own Future TL in the Middle East (in relation to an anarchist society in the Levant) so I'd be honored if you could help me out.

I use Illustrator to make the entire thing. There's a map from Dr. Ludwig that helped me through the entire process of it: Historical Mapmaking in Adobe Illustrator. However, if you don't have an Illustrator and you want some that cost nothing, Inkscape is a great alternative to help you on your path to mapmaking. Hell, I even made a video tutorial out of it: Beginner's Guide to Mapmaking

When it comes to your last question, I could help you out. Albeit I'm less familiar with the stuff happening in the Levant (although I'm familiar with the stuff happening in Syria), I mostly spent my time studying on Libyan history and society.

Ah yes, Dr. Ludwig, the man so many of this site's best (and ok and good) mappers learned from.

Probably the best recommendation you can give to new mappers, your work at least is proof of that.
[Map] Expansion of the Free State of Sabha (2021-2025)
Expansion of the Free State of Sabha - (2021-2025)
[r/ImaginaryMaps] - [DeviantArt]


“Look, slavery isn’t that bad. At least I give them a sense of being actually useful for once, right? RIGHT!?”
- Martin Geoff, during an elaborate interview with an unfortunate travel journalist.
The Free State of Sabha, the Pearl of Fezzan - the glimmering speck of light that shines across the cold desert. While Libya succumbs to famine and poverty, this small but resilient community tamed the dunes and built a utopia which has become the envy of all. It’s also an amoral and hedonistic cesspit, a society that transformed the dysfunctional market of human-trafficking that permeates throughout Africa into an exploitative and systematic enterprise that made millions or even billions to fund their so-called paradise.

But before the rise of Ljubomir and Martin Geoff, the political environment around Fezzan can be described as a series of city-states and independent villages scattered throughout, interconnected through the means of trade; exchanging goods ranging from water to barley. Sabha, in particular, is a strong economic hub that relies on its oases and irrigation system to produce crops. While slave auctions have become commonplace after Khalifa Haftar’s demise, the local city council attempt to curb down this market but to no avail. Living in the city can be described as mediocre and stagnant for most, but it wasn’t until the arrival of the two and their band of mercenaries that all things changed, reforming the landscape under their whim.


“I never thought we could make it this far. Expected my head to roll over before we make it to the city, glad I was wrong.”
- Ljubomir, recounting his past doubt on their first operation.
The Free State was established on April 21st, 2021 - the day when the two, backed by hired guns, seized the city of Sabha through intrigue and coercion. Martin, seeking opportunities to amass his wealth and provide a foundation to build his paradise, begin to bring the slave auctions out from the shadows and turned it into a functioning market. 4 Months later, after accumulating enough funds from the endeavor and investing it into expanding its infrastructure, he improved the city from its mediocre state and elevated the standard of living reminiscent of the pre-civil war.

Confident on his success, he launched an expedition to Brak on October 13th, marching across the highway with 500 mercenaries backed with heavy guns. The operation was a success, but none could secure the city permanently as they plan to expand further. Thus, at Ljubomir’s request, a garrison composed of levied slaves was formed to secure their spoils and was given a title to suit their purpose, the Jaysh Al-Khadam. Martin was impressed by their discipline and loyalty, to the point that he formed other corps to fulfill mediocre roles ranging from construction to maintenance.

While Ljubomir was subjugating towns on the northern hemisphere, some folks from the West, ranging from libertarians to venture entrepreneurs, flocked to Sabha with the promise of new opportunities and economic freedom. Their skill-sets benefited the Free State, providing helpful amounts of expertise that will eventually help it to modernize; inventing more efficient methods of irrigation and robust industry that none throughout Libya and even Africa could match.

In 2023, after developing the northern hemisphere, Ljubomir recommended him to commence another expedition against Ubari and Murzuq, two cities that defied the Free State by helping runaway slaves from falling into their hands. The attempt to secure them was a disaster at first and nearly cost his life. Martin resorted back to subterfuge to sow discontent between the two, eventually succeeding in capturing Murzuq peacefully and launch another offensive against Ubari and establishing a permanent base for the levy Garrison.

After securing the highway connecting Sabha to Murzuq, he begins to shift his focus on domestic affairs; forming the Board of Representatives to give his rule a clear sense of legitimacy and expanding the neglected infrastructure throughout his domain to secure the flow of trade. On his personal venture, he wrote a manifesto on his thoughts on improving capitalism and proposing the idea of a union of entrepreneurs entitled to the sweat of their brow - the Manifesto of the Free. Witnessing its success, fringe towns beyond Murzuq seeks to join the Free State to reap its prosperity. Martin embraced them with glee, proclaiming this endeavor as definitive proof of his success.

After months of preparation, expanding the core army and levy garrisons, Ljubomir commenced its largest expedition yet; seeking to occupy a vast stretch of land beyond the Serir Al Gattusa before it could fall into one of many warring factions of the Libyan National Army. Eventually, through diplomacy and conquest, the Free State of Sabha has captured the city of Al-Fugha and cemented itself as one the most powerful factions within the civil war; a foreign force backed by a powerful economy and robust military.

In 2025, during the height of their power, the Free State expanded its market beyond Fezzan and eventually beyond the southern fringe of North Africa and the Sahel Region. Brak, from a small town housing, has grown into a large inland shipyard. From small motorboats to expansive yachts, most of them are sold to the corsairs scouring throughout the Mediterranean after the sanction was imposed against them.


“It’s surreal to see these folk being content with their lot in life. Some of them are fine on being enslaved as long as Martin takes care of them.”
- An anonymous journalist during a conference in the Hague.
The Free State of Sabha has become an enigma to the international community. Despite being built under the forced servitude of innocent folks, who migrated from their homes to seek a better lot in life, Martin Geoff has elevated the poor conditions that tormented the people of Fezzan into a near-luxurious state; elevating the living condition from its stagnate state and providing folks with easy access to goods that none from the coast could afford.

A journalist documenting the situation in Fezzan recounts his experience with the slaves in Murzuq, claimed that some of the slaves have a surprisingly positive outlook on the Free State, albeit with some minor woes. He even noted that one of them even volunteered to be sold just to receive its benefits such as free sustenance and shelter. Despite this, many have tried to find ways to avoid capture. They either risk themselves to take the longer route from Egypt or through the core territories of the Libyan National Army.

In 2026, their paradise seems to be eroding, albeit at a very slow pace. With the rise of the Green Army threatening their water supply and the gradual progress made by the countries in the Sahel Region to curb down human trafficking, they begin to face a situation where their reliance on slavery could no longer be sustainable and forced to form an alternative solution.

Regardless, the Free State of Libya has proven itself to a reliable trading partner for many factions across Libya and even to the tribes and communities around the Sahel Region to some extent; providing them cheap but reliable goods ranging from fresh fruit to even powerful guns. People in Fezzan admire their commitment to improving their once nightmarish life, even excusing human trafficking a necessary means to survive.

Libya is the biggest challenge I have in recent years, hope it'll end in a positive note
- Edward Zhou, Lt. Colonel of the U.S Army.

Dubbed by many foreign experts and analysts as the Warring State of Libya, the 3rd Libyan Civil has spanned over six years and counting. From famine and poverty, the country is rife with factional skirmishes that engulfed to this day. Here, the infographic details the important events that occurred since its ignition, ranging from the sudden death of the enigmatic but short-lived dictator - Khalifa Haftar to the recent endeavor where a tribed entered to a confederation of another.
