The Republic of Kozuc has had a long history in the micronational community, plagued with both war and instability. Throughout their time within the community, by some, Kozuc was considered a leader. From its beginnings as a project by middle school students who fabricated most of its claims, to being a fully functional secessionist cultural movement, Kozuc has found itself both in the middle of conflicts and as a mediator to the community. Finally, through its many incarnations, the constant change came to a stop when President Riley Small left to seek drug rehabilitation.

Pre-UPUC Era

Before the infamous United Provinces Under Chance, there was an era of micronationalism in which no official name was decided upon, but a state existed. This was a group of peers and Chance Anderson, one of the current Guides to the Kozuc Revolution, formed a regime over the neighborhood. This was before the Tylo-Chane Split, and Tyler ruled under Chance's direction. This era was basically the formation of the state that would once become the UPUC, from February 1st - June 22nd 2010 in which Riley Small played the role of organizing the state, while other ruled over him. All of this happened prior to population surge, so at this point only 19 persons were members of this newly found state.

The UPUC Era

The United Provinces Under Chance has been the longest independent non-Kozuc micronation to be founded in the Monterey area. The United Provinces existed from June 22nd 2010 to September 12th of that same year. The UPUC reported having a large amount of citizens due to the Census Association counting all of the families of citizens are citizens themselves. This lead to large amounts of doubt in the community, but this was disregarded at the beginning. The UPUC was notorious for sockpuppeting in the community, as it claimed that three other micronations, known as Scandel, Sovia and Lowssia, existed in the area around them. Scandel, of course, based around the name Skendal which was an actual micronation in the area that was not active in the MicroWiki community as of then. The times of the UPUC are clearly split into four periods and were very different, as the nation developed but would soon fail for lack of factual information on citizenship numbers.

Tylo-Chance Split

One pivotal point during the UPUC was the Tylo-Chance Split. This came about a dispute over the rightful leader of the United Provinces. Tyler would argue that he was the leader, whilst Chance arguing the same of himself. Secretary General Riley Small and much of his regime sided with Chance, and High General Logan and many others with Tyler. Soon, the High General would come back to Chance and join their ranks. This would officially begin the decline of Tyler as a leader of a nation to become a leader of a terrorist group. The Tyler Revolutionary Forces were then founded, and a struggle for power would begin. Chance and the majority of the nation would continue to fight for the UPUC, while Tyler and his group of renegades would fight to continue the United Provinces as the United Provinces Under Tyler. This term was banned from use in the UPUC. The TRF would continue to fight for a small while, but go inactive until the Atlantis Era.

Period of War

During the Period of War, the United Provinces would create the two completely fake nations of Lowsia and Sovia, and the mostly fake Scandel to create conflict in the area. The Period also continued with the USLSSR and the UPUC almost entering war with both Starland and Istoria, but ending prior to this because of the diplomatic rhetoric of the USLSSR's leadership. Soon, the UPUC would enter the War of the Forest, along with the Republic of Atlantis and the newly created alliance with Starland. This would end with the UPUC taking over Scandel and placing in a puppet government. Lowsia had supposed riots and the Secretary General took complete control during them, while Sovia was dying from within. All of these things, made up by Riley Small himself. The government would soon collapse after these things right before the reforms, but the Hazad Union was founded as an EU like supranantional government lead by the UPUC.

Reform and decline of the UPUC

The UPUC would soon find itself facing international pressures to collapse. These were lead by allegations from the leadership of Yabloko and A1, especially from Gordon Freeman and Aldrich Lucas. These would lead to the finding of the mistrusts stated by the government of the United Provinces, despite many already noticing them as hypothesizing their claims.

During all of this, government reforms are taking place. Despite the horrific government form and poorly organized nation, out of these reforms came a great constitution that would actually make logical sense. The government moved from a military dictatorship to a military junta but this would not change a large amount of the government's policies. Essentially the same government form, and lead by the same leadership, the UPUC collapsed into the Kingdom of Zurdonia, naming Chance King and Riley Small Speaker of the House of Lords. This all came in the midst of a large conflict started by a blog post by Aldrich Lucas, effectively forcing the nation to change.

Zurdon Era

Anti-Zurdonian Propaganda

The Zurdon Era began after the fall of the United Provinces Under Chance when Riley Small named Chance Anderson the King of Zurdonia, and himself the Speaker of the House of Lords. This Era was the beginning of a type of micronationalism in the area that would become the Kozuc Eras. The Kingdom quickly jumped into the Atlantis Civil War, most notably in the Pacific Front, only one day after foundation. Zurdonia was short lived and disbanded on the 25th of October, beginning the Atlantis Era. The Tyler Revolutionary Forces declared victory over the Kingdom and forced them to relinquish power over to the TRF. After days of fighting, the TRF gave up their claim but would continue to be active through the Atlantis Era, despite tribunals ordering Tyler to renounce all membership from the group. This was the only factual war in the history of Kozuc before the St.Charlie Era as during that Era police action took place and in the Two Kozuc Era, there was a cold war between the two Kozucs.

Atlantis Era

The Atlantis Era then began, when the first Republic of Kozuc was founded. Kozuc became a part of the Republic of Atlantis as a Confederated Republic. Riley Small, who was both a deputy in the Atlantis Parliament and Minister of Home Affairs, took control over the Atlantis Intelligence Service and worked in the nation until the first of December of the same year. Many Kozuc people joined the Atlantis government as agents in the intelligence service, governors of Kozuc regions and in local offices. This was the end to the short lived attempt to actually factual micronationalism, which began in the Kingdom of Zurdonia. Kozuc left Atlantis after a large conflict with St.Charlie. During this time, Small was a leading figure in the WMA and held many offices within it.

First Kozuc Era

The First Kozuc Era was the Era directly after the Republic of Kozuc left the Republic of Atlantis. The First Kozuc era started with Riley Small writing a 156 article constitution and Liam Barnard becoming active in politics. At this point, Kozuc was still a part of the WMA and held close ties with the Republic of Atlantis. Then, the first signs of socialism came about during these times, with the People's Republic of Kozuc, as they applied to join A1. Soon though, this would come to a complete stop and the next constitution of 116 articles was written by Riley Small again. This period ended with the short lived new UPUC being founded and Starland becoming the main ally of the new nation. At this points, there were no wars.

Second Kozuc Era

During the Second Kozuc Era, monarchy reined over Kozuc. The Empire of Kozuc was the main political power in the area as well as Oceanland. Oceanland was a micronation founded by the brother of Liam Barnard, Kevin Barnard, who claimed Kozuc territory. A quick war happened but this was later proven to be fake and made up later in the apologies of Riley Small. Kozuc created a fake nation called Alhedro, which was the most well thought out scheme in the History of the Republic. The Empire declared war with Alhedro. This was a conflict set up through fake emails and Starland helping to create the conflict with news broadcasts. Soon, this war would also be proven fake, despire Riley Small never apologizing for it.

The Second Kozuc Era ended with the disbanding of Kozuc all together. Kozuc would then go inactive for a large period of time, from January 26th - March 10th of 2011. This would be because Kozuc leaders were working on a school project that was based around Geo-fiction. Riley Small kept up to date in the community with reading news articles and posting on the forums every once in a while but this would was nothing compared to before the disestablishment.

Era of Rebirth

Riley Small came out with apologies during the Era now commonly known as the Era of Rebirth. The community accepted him back in and he would soon work his way back up to a respected micronationalist. Soon, he would found the Kozuc Khanate, a micronation consisting on delegates from other micronations with himself as Khan and other citizens as members of the Parliament.

I learned much about the community during my times before the Era of Rebirth, it was more of myself testing the waters of the community. The water was very hot but I jumped in anyway and got burned. Since then, I have healed my wounds and become an active political force in the community. St.Charlie helped me do this, and I thank them for it.

The Khanate was a great and active political force in the community for about 2 months, until the members of it became inactive. Riley Small and his new friend Joseph Puglisi, made their last attempt to save this nation filled with members only with dual citizenship, by founding the Kingdom of Kozuc, essentially the same as the Khanate. This lasted two weeks until it was disestablished by the King in May of 2011

First St.Charlian Era

On May 22nd 2011, Riley Small became the Oversees Ambassador and a member of the Ambassadorial Council of the Federal Republic of St.Charlie. This would make Riley Small more influential, and he would soon become the delegate to the Organisation of Active Micronations. Small would apply for Kozuc to become a Federation in the Republic, but this would end with protests in the Kozuc area. During this time, the Republic of Skendal, which would soon become West Kozuc, would be founded and Riley Small would try to get the St.Charlian ban on dual citizenship repealed. Riley Small would become known for being the "Man who killed Istoria" after he had St.Charlie and many other micronations Embargo the micronation over a homophobic law in place. Small also would play a large part in the New Guinea scandal by arguing on the side of Alexander Reinhardt to remove them from the OAM. Small would leave St.Charlie in August of 2011 to found his own micronation, but he stated that he will continue to keep close ties with the Federal Republic.

Two-Nation period

The Two Kozuc Era is the beginning of the fully factual Kozucs and the rise of Kozuc. These Eras would begin with two major events; the founding of West Kozuc and Riley Small entering high school and gaining interested and active citizens. West Kozuc and East Kozuc would be founded as a capitalist west and a socialist east but soon the West would turn into a communist nation. During this time, Riley Small became a prominent figure in the intermicronational community, especially on Skype and the forums. Small would play a small part in Yablokogate and a large part in the Kozuc-Sandum diplomatic issue over the banning of Walruses and professionalism. Soon, this Era would end in a merger of the two nations after an East Kozuc military operation. Kozuc is not one unified nation, and the third Kozuc Era has since began.

Third Kozuc Era: The Golden Age

The Third Kozuc Era is the current period in Kozuc history. It began with the unification of Kozuc, the promise by officials in Kozuc not to change government after the nation became a Republic from an Empire and the idea that Kozuc may join the Nemkhav Federation. When the joining of Nemkhavia was shot down in the former Kozuc parliament, and the Republic was founded, Kozuc became an active part of the GUM and joined the Zealandian Commonwealth as a State, similar to India in the Commonwealth of Nations, but later left. This Era is also known as the Era of Growth, with a new constitution being written, a democratic government and free elections. The military has gained large amounts of members since the founding of the Republic and now Kozuc is flourishing in a new "Golden Age of Kozuc".

Skendal Liberation Movement

During the Golden Era, the Skendal Prefecture declared independence from Kozuc. The Kozuc government reacted in a way that would allow them to peacefully leave. Skendal, though, decided that they would claim 87% of the Kozuc controlled territory, the entirety of the Ken Bourland National Park, as their own. This sparked some controversy in the community and the Liberate West Kozuc Association was re-founded by Westsylvania and some other members of the community. Soon, on christmas eve, a deal was decided on and the land was split equally between the two nations based on their prior occupied territory and how they would use the land. Three party talks, between Skendal, Kozuc and Tiana, led to this decision along with international pressure to do so.

Soviet System

The temporary government form that would be put in place in Kozuc was founded on December 28th, 2011 is the soviet system in place during this time period. The soviet system came because of a government collapse after Skendal declared independence. The collapse came due to half of the government offices becoming vacant and nothing could be done. Riley Small took emergency powers and a referendum was issued to see what the government form shall be for this temporary amount of time. Kozuc thus became a soviet system after it won the referendum.
