The full name of the nation is "The Grand Republic of Cycoldia of the Duchies of Greater Houston, The Duchy of Denver, The Duchy of Tequrovidea, and the Sub-Duchy of Crystal Bay, along with the Joint-Crown Territory of Lur alongside the colonies of the Atkison Island, the Blue Water Atoll, and Hog Island, and descendant of the Republic of Flirbonia". With the origin of the name of Cycoldia coming from the original proposed name "Cyclodia", though it is not known where the origin of Cyclodia came from. Cycoldia was suggested by a member of the Royal Family of Cycoldia after being told about the proposed name said it "sounds like a blood disease". This resulted in Christina I changing the name of the nation to Cycoldia, and the name has been continued to be used to this day. The name Cycoldia has been confused with Cyclodia multiple times, including by some official foreign relations, such as Ruayano, Etukan, Slabovia, Dracul, etc.
The Republic was founded on 6 November 2018, under the name "Republic of Cycoldia", then on 11 December 2018 the (at the time) Chief of Armed Forces was found to have been plotting a military coup. Luckily this was discovered, and quickly dealt with. Within two weeks later Gavin plead guilty and was excommunicated from Cycoldia for 3 years after he had been fleeing from the nation twice.
The nation has also had a very turbulent history, with it being at war multiple times (most being defensive wars but also including 5 civil wars). Republic was at war with the Empire of Etukan due to Etukan declaring a coalition war against Cycoldia. Cycoldia had also agreed to join the United Imperial Empire on 5 May, although then breaking away on 21 May due to the UIE's government saying that if the law the "Cannon Law of Texas" was not accepted then they would replace the Cycoldian Government.
This caused the Grand Republic to be born for a second time on 21 May 2019 at 8:55CT PM. Since becoming independent, the nation had become a member of the League of Micronations as a Security Council member, and the sovereign (Christina I of Cycoldia) had become the Minister of Voting and Elections, and the Co-Owner of the League.
On 30 June 2019 the Grand Republic defeated the Order of the Lotus, and was able to sign a peace with Eora (Etukan). This was after countless failed attempts for peace negotiations with the nation. On 24 August the Grand Republic peacefully annexed Ticronvidia, causing Ticronvidia to change their name to the Duchy of Tequrovidea, as a governing member of Cycoldia.
Crisis of the 7th
On 7 July, Ethan F., after losing the election, decided to question the legitimacy of the Imperial Government. This was done by mocking the Summi Imperatoria's divine right theory way of rule. Ethan was quickly arrested at 00:25. The Prime Minister (President of the National Spicy Association) Kristopher Eastham publicly apologized for his subordinate's actions. Then Ethan F. tried appealing to other nations governments, eventually receiving no aide, and even being mocked by them. At 02:17 the Summi Imperatoria of Cycoldia then made a motion to dissolve the General Assembly. The proposed reason was for the General Assembly being inefficient bureaucracy that was not prepared to run a government. At 17:45 the Summi Imperatoria announced that the General Assembly was suspended until further notice. The crisis ended when Ethan F. stopped communication with Cycoldia.
The Summi Imperatoria Christina I of Cycoldia did attend MicroCon 2019 representing the Grand Republic of Cycoldia, while she was in attendance at the convention she helped found the YAMO Federation, and was even awarded the MicroCon Attendance Medal (Slabovia), Space and Planet Exploration Medal (Republic of West Who), and the Medal of Friendship (Grand Duchy of Danduros). She attended both the Gala Dinner and the General Conference.
Shutdown and Crisis of the 25th
On 25 August, Summi Imperatoria Christina I declared that she would be temporarily handing over the government to the recently announced Regent. The Summi Imperatoria did continue to act in the nation, as she suspended the requests for citizenship and interacted with the citizens. Although she did this she still had continued to stay away from acting on foreign diplomacy and foreign interactions, differing to the Regent for those. The shutdown ended up lasting 3 days, with the Summi Imperatoria enacting that the government would be active and operational. The Regent kept their position and the (at the time) Prime Minister had become more interactive to the government and the features of aiding the citizens.
On 24 August the Treaty of Chondvel was signed, annexing the 2nd Kingdom of Ticronvidia into the Semi-Independent Duchy of Tequrovidea. The terms of theagreement was as followed:
- The Second Kingdom of Ticronvidia will become a semi-independent duchy of the Grand Republic of Cycoldia.
- Ticronvidia will rename to Tequrovidea
- Tequrovidea will have a local army, a local currency, local laws (while still abiding by Cycoldian laws), and the Ticronvidian Protectorates of Hosamia and Wefren are to be autonomous duchies within Tequrovidea
On 11 December 2019 Jahonnes of Tequrovidea illegally declared independence from the Grand Republic of Cycoldia. Cycoldia's General Assembly then passed a decision at 10:52CST on 12 December 2019 declaring that the secessionist state was not permitted, and was in fact a revolution. Christina I of Cycoldia also added that "They have shown that they will not use diplomacy or reason, they have placed horrible officials in power and worse ones for higher offices, they have invited Etukan into their nation, Elysium to top it, and Suyash Adikhari to be the hierarchy. They have called our officials a 'wench' and they have opened an illegal rebellion, this is unacceptable". She also placed Arif Yaren in the position of Duke of Tequrovidea, making the government of Tequrovidia fully disputed, with both sides claiming legitimacy.
The government of Cycoldia works as a constitutional monarchy, with the Constitution limiting the government and speaking on the ways to elect leaders.
- The Executive Branch is the Summi Imperator/Summi Imperatoria, the Imperial Cabinet, and the Chief of Staff (this will sometimes be coupled with the Departmental system).
- The Judicial Branch is lead by the Court of Houston, and leads over the entire judicial system of Cycoldia, although the Summi Imperator/Summi Imperatoria is the Chief Justice of the Court of Houston.
- The third and final branch of government is the Legislative Branch, which only comprises of the General Assembly, although also in the General Assembly the Summi Imperator/Summi Imperatoria is the Speaker of the General Assembly. The Prime Minister also acts as the Deputy Speaker of the General Assembly when the Speaker is not present.
- The CSDF also is the official police department of the Cycoldian government. It is also a piece of the government according to the Constitution of the Grand Republic of Cycoldia.
- The Regent is essentially the Crown Prince, they are as the essentially Vice Summi Imperator/Summi Imperatoria, but they are able to lead large sections of the government, even when the Summi Imperator/Summi Imperatoria is there. The Regent also acts as Summi Imperator/Summi Imperatoria whenever they are not there to make actions and run the government.
The people in government are the following:
- Summi Imperatoria Christina I
- Royal Consort Arif Yaren
- Prime Minister Jayden Prasatik
- Chief of the Armed Forces Hayden Leonard
- Deputy Prime Minister Johann I

The Cycoldiaball has been used in the nation for a while, including with propaganda such as with the version of it with the ball attacking an unknown entity. As well the Cycoldiaball has been very influential in representing the nation and its people. A few examples of Cycoldiaball are:
The Countryball Group Picture made by Christina I of Cycoldia
On 19 October Christina I of Cycoldia released a puzzle mystery called The Nowellian, in which she then challenged people to reach the "Prasatik Solution". The next day at 00:00CT she then released the final clue, which was a link to this page on Microwiki. There currently has been 1 person able to solve The Nowellian, Cameron I of Ikonia. It is and has been sponsored by the Cycoldian government, as the person to create it is Christina I of Cycoldia (Monarch of Cycoldia). The Nowellian has been said to have to do with the Cycoldian political scene. Her Imperial Majesty has also created a channel on Cycoldia's official Discord server, called "nowellain-updates".
- Glory to Cycoldia - It is a film of Christina I of Cycoldia burning the Etukan Flag. The burning started to pick up at 6:41 in the video, whenever the flags start burning as a whole. There were a total of 6 flags to be burnt during the propaganda piece.
- The Summi Imperatoria’s Will - It is a short 8 second video of Christina I of Cycoldia in full secondary uniform firing a pistol cap gun. After she fired the cap gun she threw it to an unknown location. After throwing said cap gun she unsheathed the Royal Sword of Cycoldia. The video had a pool in the corner of the video, and displayed the flag in the background. As well the video was taken by a mobile phone.
April Fools Day 2020
For April Fools Day in 2020 Christina I declared that the government would adopt the denied EU proposal Barcode flag, that the National religion would be Pastafarianism, that the new national name would be the United States of Cycoldia, and that the new national language would be English (Russian). Later in the day she made the flag the "Head Fire Man" from a video by CallMeCarson, seen in a video on skribbl.io.
The first Flag of Cycoldia was a rectangular standard with 3:2 dimensions. The later design was also a rectangular standard with the original flag design as the canton and ten red stripes and nine white stripes, similar to the design of the Flag of the United States, with approximate dimensions of 4:3. The current design of the Cycoldian flag has slight alterations, including the change of the stripe being no longer clipped by the canton, as well the dimensions are changed to approximately 3:2. The flag's meaning is that the canton symbolises the original two capital system, in which the two capitals are merging together to make one nation. The bars of the flag were added later, with the meaning being people involved in the foundation of the nation, and the items that are honoured by the nation.
