Dekker is an Crown Dependency of the Empire of Austenasia situated in North America. An enclave of the American state of Texas, comprised of two areas of historically Dekkeran lands. North Tarrant (pictured right) containing the whole of the population. Dekker (as a Crown Dependency was established on 16 July 2015, after 26 Jun 2015 Patrick-Dylan Knox restarted talks to have Dekker annexed. Patrick-Dylan Knox was named Governing Commissioner of Dekker as it ascended into the empire.

Although under Austenasian sovereignty, Dekker is a Crown Dependency, and so is neither taxed nor has representation in Parliament. The Emperor holds absolute power over the Crown Dependency, exercised on his behalf by the Governing Commissioner, with Austenasian legislation not applying to Dekker unless it explicitly refers to it.

History

Dekker was originally founded in 2009 as the Co-Principality of Dekker, a member of the Domanglian Commonwealth in 2011, but left due to internal conflict. In 2012, Dekker joined the Fredomian Commonwealth, and after realising the conflict of interest. Dekker aligned itself with Ultamiya, even joining the successor state Varina as a province. After falling into inactivity for a time, on 26 June 2015 Patrick-Dylan Knox offered Dekker to Austenasia, and it ascended into the empire on 16 July 2015.
