We first became aware of the Yuxuzox in 3035. They inhabit the rainy planet Xuoxixiz in the Xubxi system. They are warlike, resilient, and nomadic.
The Yuxuzox make use of stone tools in a variety of contexts, including as weapons when hunting the wild yizyu.
Despite a few initial mishaps, the Yuxuzox have mastered the control of fire. They use it to cook their food, and to light their villages at night.
The Yuxuzox have begun to cultivate crops, including hoxi, a kind of hardy seedpod that grows well on the floodplains of Xuoxixiz.
The Yuxuzox have domesticated a species of small winged predators. The pets assist their Yuxuzox owners with hunting in exchange for food and shelter.
The Yuxuzox have discovered how to forge molten metal into jewelry, tools, weapons, and armor.
The Yuxuzox have begun to construct permanent dwellings and other structures. Wherever possible, they seem to prefer brick as a building material.
The Yuxuzox have built elaborate pipe and sewer systems to supply their larger settlements, such as Yiroz, with fresh water and a hygenic means of waste disposal.
The Yuxuzox have begun to watch the skies and recognize patterns in the movements of stars, which they use to navigate over great distances and keep track of time.
In 3268, many of the warring Yuxuzox clans were united under a single banner by an individual known as Yuzyu the Merciful. The resulting empire has its capital at Yiroz and rules over approximately 5% of the entire Yuxuzox population. Unusually for the Yuxuzox, it is governed by direct democratic vote.
The Yuxuzox have learned how to build ships and sail them across the oceans of Xuoxixiz to explore and trade over increasingly greater distances.
In 3322, the Yuxuzox population reached 25 million individuals. Many of these reside within permanent cities, the largest of which is known as Yiroz and has a population of 63,000.
The Yuxuzox have begun to construct wind and water mills, which redirect the forces of the natural world to perform repetitive mechanical tasks such as grinding grain and pumping water.
Due to its role as the birthplace of several major Yuxuzox religions, including the especially prominent Huixuzoz faith, the city of Yiroz is regarded by many of the Yuxuzox as a holy site. Leaders from all around the world make trips to the city in order to curry favor with the leaders of their people's religion of choice.
The Yuxuzox have learned how to catch water-dwelling creatures such as the yuyxi, which is now an important part of the Yuxuzox diet.
The Yuxuzox have developed a simple system of writing, which they use primarily for poetry.
The Yuxuzox have developed a sophisticated understanding of basic mathematics, such as arithmetic, algebra, and geometry.
Some of the Yuxuzox have begun to experiment with alchemy, systematically searching for new ways of combining and manipulating ingredients to yield useful chemicals, compounds, and medicines.
The Yuxuzox have discovered a way to manufacture gunpowder, which they primarily use for explosive mining.
The Yuxuzox have begun to make use of more sophisticated construction techniques, relying on sturdy structural elements such as arches and buttresses to support larger and larger buildings.
The Yuxuzox have developed a simple printing press, and mass-produced versions of important texts have begun to circulate widely throughout the world. Scary stories are especially popular.
The Yuxuzox have begun to use lenses and mirrors made from polished crystal, glass, and water to redirect and focus light.
Through systematic observation and categorization of the various living things on Xuoxixiz, the Yuxuzox have begun to develop a more sophisticated understanding of biology. Some theorists have even put forth the idea that dramatically different-looking organisms, such as the yizyu and the yuyxi, may in fact be descended from a single common ancestor.
The Yuxuzox have developed a practical and cost-effective steam engine, which can be fueled with wood or coal.
The Yuxuzox have successfully tamed electricity, and are now beginning to deploy it throughout society. Electric lights are widespread, electric motors are used to drive factories, and the growing need for electric power has led to the construction of power plants near every major center of Yuxuzox population.
In 3619, a rapidly growing religion known as Huixuzoz became the official religion of the largest Yuxuzox state. Adherents of Huixuzoz wear plain black hats to mark themselves as believers.
The Yuxuzox have begun harnessing the power of electricity to send messages across very great distances with unprecedented speed. Due to the overhead of encoding and decoding messages, long-distance communication remains far from instantaneous, but it is now possible for individuals on opposite sides of Xuoxixiz to exchange several messages over the course of a single day.
In their efforts to understand the motion of planets in the sky, free-falling bodies, and projectiles, the Yuxuzox have developed a new branch of mathematics which is immediately recognizable as calculus.
Although initially controversial, the hypothesis that diseases are caused by microorganisms has begun to catch on among the Yuxuzox, leading to the widespread adoption of public health policies which have greatly reduced the spread of disease.
The Yuxuzox have arrived at a sophisticated understanding of genetics, which has enabled them to craft new forms of life by deliberately modifying the genes of existing organisms.
With the development of the transistor, the Yuxuzox have begun to construct more sophisticated electronic circuits.
The Yuxuzox have begun to develop rockets.
The Yuxuzox have developed an accurate model of the internal structure of the atom, which has also enabled them to understand the phenomenon of radioactivity.
The Yuxuzox have begun to build general-purpose programmable computers.
The Yuxuzox have begun to understand quantum physics.
The Yuxuzox have discovered that electromagnetic waves may be used to transmit information, enabling the development and widespread deployment of media for audiovisual broadcasting.
The Yuxuzox have developed flying machines which can carry them into the skies above Xuoxixiz.
The Yuxuzox have begun to connect their computers into a single vast network, enabling communication and collaboration on a truly global scale.
The Yuxuzox have taken their first tentative steps into space, launching craft capable of supporting several individuals into orbit around Xuoxixiz before retrieving them safely.
The Yuxuzox have begun to experiment with the use of "intelligent materials", in the form of swarms of programmable nanobots.
The Yuxuzox have begun to establish permanent colonies on worlds other than Xuoxixiz. Although still largely unable to travel outside of the Xubxi system, the distribution of Yuxuzox civilization across multiple worlds greatly reduces the risk that they will collapse due to any crisis of merely planetary scale.
The Yuxuzox have developed a form of artificial general intelligence which rivals many of their own intellectual capabilities.
In 3816, following decades of negotiation, the various sovereign Yuxuzox nations came to an agreement concerning the establishment of a unified planet-wide government for all of the Yuxuzox.
The Yuxuzox have constructed their first cost-effective quantum computers, dramatically improving their collective ability to perform certain types of calculation.
Through their investigations of quantum phenomena, the Yuxuzox have discovered a means of sending and receiving messages which travel at speeds exceeding that of light itself.
The Yuxuzox have successfully tested their first faster-than-light starship. No longer are they trapped within the gravity well of the Xubxi system: they are now free to take their place alongside us as fellow wanderers among the stars.
In 3865, the Yuxuzox joined us.
