Matachewan is a Polish Micronation that was created by Brandon Mierzwa on 30 June 2015. The name Matachewan comes from the Matachewan First Nation and means "Meeting of the Waters". The nation was named after Fort Matachewan a former Gold Mining Community just south of Timmins Ontario. Matachewan is a very Polish based micronation as many of the national symbols are Polish. The Military and Currencies also take from the Polish Culture. Matachewan's official name is the Grand Kingdom of Matachewan although many in the micronational community just refer to Matachewan as Matachewan.

Etymology

The name of Matachewan came from its original geographical location. The word Matachewan comes from the Matachewan First Nation that first settled Matachewan and the word means "Meeting of the Waters". The word doesn't have an official origin on why it was created but we like to believe that the Matachewan First Nation made and named themselves off the Upper and Lower Matachewanian Lakes that feed into the Montreal River.

Matachewan never had a Demonym and just went by Matachewan until 3 December 2018 when King Brandon Mierzwa introduced "Matachewanian" adding "-ian" to the end of Matachewan.

History

Early Matachewan (2015 - 2017)

The Grand Kingdom of Matachewan was founded in June 2015 under the Independent City of Matachewan by Brandon Mierzwa. The nation was like any other growing micronation at the time, it was proud in its work and it tried to look and strive for a better future. Matachewan wasn't widely known at this time and refused to move onto the internet.

Matachewanian Civil War

Like most micronations back in 2015, Matachewan felt like it was necessary to get involved in some sort of conflict and apparently that conflict was with itself. Matachewan did fight small land battles around its claimed territory but nothing was to become of this and the country eventually died off.

Modern Matachewan (2018 - Present)

2018 and Matachewan

August - October

After two long years of no national progress and absolutely no activity, Matachewan eventually came back on 3 August 2018, as the Kingdom of Matachewan. The Kingdom of Matachewan was a small discord dependent micronation with nothing really going for it until it meat the Fifth Aenderian Republic and Auvenum. Matachewan was to get involved in some conflict between the two nations eventually leading the Matachewanian-Nerdystanian War which was never physically fought and is really just a relic of when Matachewan was more of a simulationist state.

Politics

Sejm of Matachewan

Early Sejm

The first legislature of Matachewan was not called the Sejm but rather just Parliament. The early Parliament (Sejm) had many power problems and was inefficient since its beginning terms. The problems with the Parliament became evident when the democratically elected officials started pushing for more democratic offices and eventually proposed cutting the Monarchy's control of Parliament. After a week of bitter discussion and debate the Monarchy removed the members of Parliament eventually leading to a 2nd Republic and then a 6th Monarchy and then back to a stable nation. It was on May 16th when the first reference to the word Sejm was used when speaking about Matachewanian Parliament.

Economy

Industry

Matachewan is currently undergoing localization and a key part of localization is the development of the economy through industrial means.

Mining Attempts and Plans

On 30 November 2019 Beau Edwards and Brandon Mierzwa went out on a mining expedition in hopes of finding quarts and other surface rocks. What they came back with was a small amount of quarts and small fossils.

On the 2nd of December 2019 Brandon and a few other ministers decided they would go mining for clay to create pottery to sell off and make bricks. The work done was impressive as they dug almost 8 feet into the ground striking what they thought was clay. After 1 week of digging and further examination of the "clay" it was found out that the "clay" they've been mining was just hardened dirt. After the news the operation soon was abandoned.

Farming Plans

Matachewan is preparing to make small planters which will be used to grow small plants like Dill and Parsley. Matachewan also has plans to make an all year farm using potatoes. The attempts at farming are small but a nation must start somewhere.
