The History of Kozuc, with the most recent carnation being the Republic of Kozuc, is split into nine eras, starting from the United Provinces Under Chance, and resulting in its current independent state located in California. Riley Small, as the leading politician throughout its history, has both lead the nation as head of state and as the head of government through its many changes in government. Currently, Kozuc is focused on reestablishing itself as a influential force in the community.

Kozuc, the Republic and its many past carnations of the micronation has had a long history in the community, plagued with both war and instability. Throughout its 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 becoming a fully functional secessionist cultural movement, Kozuc has found itself both in the middle of conflicts and as a mediator to the community.

The UPUC Era

The United Provinces Under Chance was 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 and residents of registered citizens are a part of the population. This lead to large amounts of doubt in the community, especially due to claims from the UPUC government about their level of activity.

At the time, 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 the micronation. Scandel, of course, based around the name Skendal which was an actual micronation that had gone inactive years prior. The times of the UPUC are clearly split politically, with many members of a disorganized government structure. As the nation developed, its reputation in the community became worse, and would soon fail for lack of factual information on citizenship and activity.

The UPUC would soon find itself facing international pressures to collapse. These were lead by allegations from the leadership of the former Yabloko and A1. 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 poor organized of the nation, out of these reforms came a constitution that would hold up until its dissolution. Essentially the same government form, and lead by the same leadership, the UPUC collapsed into the Kingdom of Zurdonia, naming Chance Anderson as King and Riley Small as its head of government.

Zurdon and Atlantis Era

Anti-Zurdonian Propaganda

The Zurdon and Atlantis Era began after the fall of the United Provinces Under Chance when Riley Small named Chance Anderson the King of Zurdonia This Era was the beginning of a type of micronationalism in the area that would lead to 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. When the Tyler Revolutionary Forces declared victory over the Pacific Front.

The Atlantis period then began, and "Kozuc" was formed. Kozuc, first an acronym for "Kingdom of Zurdonia Under Chance", was made up of new citizens from Small's school, and with the leave of Chance from politics, major reforms took place. Kozuc became a part of the Republic of Atlantis as a Confederated State. 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 period directly after the Republic of Kozuc left the Republic of Atlantis. This era began with Small writing an extensive, 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. The first signs of socialism came about during these times, with the People's Republic of Kozuc,. Soon though, this would come to a complete stop and the next constitution of 116 articles was written by Riley Small again. This era soon ended with the dissolution of the first People's Republic.

Era of Rebirth

Riley Small re-entered the community 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 of delegates from other micronations with himself as Khan and all 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 within the community. The water was very hot but I jumped in anyway without seeking guidance, and got burned. Since then, I have healed my wounds and become an active political force in the community. St.Charlie has helped me do this, and I thank them for that.

The Khanate was a great and active political force in the community for about 2 months, until many of its members became inactive. Riley Small and his new partner Joseph Puglisi, made their last attempt to save this nation, allowing for any members to have dual citizenship, and reforming it into a Kingdom, essentially the same as the Khanate. This lasted only about two weeks until it was formally disestablished by the King in May of 2011

Small's first St.Charlian career

After the dissolution of the Khanate, Small decided he would seek citizenship in the Federal Republic of St.Charlie. On May 22nd 2011, Riley Small became the Oversees Ambassador and a member of the Ambassadorial Council of the Federal Republic This would lead to Riley Small's increase in influence, and he would soon become their delegate to the Organisation of Active Micronations. As the first bisexual member of the Council, he played a pivotal role in reforming many past stigmas of homophobia in its membership.

During this time, the Republic of Skendal, which would soon become known by many as "West Kozuc", would be founded and Riley Small would try to get the St.Charlian ban on dual citizenship repealed. During this time, Small became known for being the "Man who killed Istoria" after he had St.Charlie and many other micronations embargo the micronation over homophobic laws in place. Small also would play one of the largest roles in ending 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 refound his own micronation, but he stated that he will continue to keep close ties with the Federal Republic.

Second Kozuc era

The Second Kozuc Era, also known as the "Two Kozuc Era", was the beginning of the fully factual and functioning Kozuc its rise as a powerful force in the community. This Era would begin with two major events; the founding of Skendal, or" 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. Soon, however, the West would become a communist state. During this time, Riley Small became a prominent figure in the intermicronational community, especially on Skype and the forums. Small would play a part in Yablokogate. Kozuc-Sandum diplomatic issues arose over the banning of Walruses in the Kozuc region and professionalism. The Second Kozuc era ended with the merger of the East and West after the infamous Operation J-Dub.

Third Kozuc Era: The Golden Age

The third Kozuc Era, often known as the "Golden Age" or the "Age of Growth", began with the unification of Kozuc. When the proposed 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 intermicronational politics. With a new constitution being written, a democratic government and free elections. The military has gained large amounts of members during this time of the Republic.

Skendal Liberation Movement

During the end of the Golden Era, the Skendal Prefecture declared independence from Kozuc. The Kozuc government reacted in a way that would allow them to peacefully leave under certain territorial agreements. Skendal, however, decided that they would claim over half of 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 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 from supporters on both sides.

St.Charlian Era

After Kozuc split, Kozuc entered the Federal Republic of St.Charlie as a Federation. After Small's change of schools, Kozuc's activity dwindled. Small became the Minister of Home Affairs for Kozuc, and was a delegate for the Federal Republic at the PoliNation conference in London. During this time, there was unrest within the federation regarding its status as a Federation. When Small took the Presidency, and was their representative to the St.Charlian General Assembly, many in the region dissented.

Kozuc officially joined as a Federation on the 14th of April, 2012. On December 19th of that same year, Kozuc left the federal republic to form an independent micronation, and the fourth Kozuc republic.

Fourth Kozuc Era: Dissolution

During the fourth Kozuc Era, independent Kozuc did not sustain itself for long. Soon, after reformation, the republic joined the now defunct Free State of Renasia as a Special Administrative Region. Kozucs activity fluctuated, with most of its politics moving more internal between its members. Kozuc's agriculture business was the main focus of the society at the time, and it was recognized intermicronationally for its lenient policies on marijuana and drug use. This period led to the slow demise of Kozuc in 2014.

Riley Small, president of the Republic and representative to the Renasian government, sought drug and alcohol treatment in Texas. Attempts to keep internal activity continued, but the lack of communication with the community led to many thinking it had dissolved. The official dissolution of the government took place in January of 2015, on approval from President Small and then acting President Rutger Sperry, although inactivity had plagued the region for quite some time prior.

Fifth Kozuc Era: Revival

Riley Small decided, after leaving treatment, he would reenter the micronational community. First, After consulting with local officials in the former Kozuc Republic, it seemed unlikely for a new active Kozuc. Small declared he would form a new micronation with his apartment roommates known as "Orionis". However, after meeting with close associates from former Kozuc, and establishing an active base of citizens in California, he soon dropped this idea to create the current Republic of Kozuc, a multiparty semi-presidential state.

On June 12th of 2015, the idea of Orionis was pitched, and on the 21st of that same month, the Kozuc was reestablished. Members of both former East and West Kozuc, as well as roommates of Small in Utah, have declared the Fifth Kozuc Republic. This Era has been commonly referred to as the "Revival of Kozuc".

On July 27th, 2015 the Republic of Kozuc ratified its constitution, officially forming the government.

Presidential Coup of December

After the constitution was enacted, and elections held, a deadlock began between the two parties, with the Socialist-majority in the legislature and the National Party controlling the Presidency. When quorum could no longer be met, Small claimed the government had become inactive. Nationals blame the socialists for not willing to compromise after their loss in the referendum on which form of government would be used, and Socialists said it was because the Opposition had two incarcerated MPs. After calling for the resignation of these members from the left, the President continued to stand by them.

Finally, among many controversies and disputes regarding the facts leading to this, Small ordered the military to install him as dictator and place a military junta in command of the nation. Since then, internal conflicts between the parties have begun, but the President strongly holds his ground. The Supreme Decree 2015 established the current government, effectively replacing the constitution.
