=====Republic Era=====
Elava was founded on the 20th of October 2020 with the signing of the Ex Codice Elava. During its first week, the nation underwent a lot of new laws and policies, even some small changes to the Ex Codice Elava itself.  
Elava was established on October 20, 2020, when the Ex Codice Elava was signed. Several new laws and ordinances were enacted during the nation's first week, including some minor amendments to the Ex Codice Elava itself. The Animo Elava, Harrison I, proclaimed on November 5th that the Ex Codice Elava would no longer serve as its constitution. It will instead be regarded as their foundation document.

On November fifth the Animo Elava, Harrison I, announced that the Ex Codice Elava would not function as its constitution. Instead, it will be classified as their founding document.

=====Monarchic Restoration Era=====
=====Monarchic Restoration Era=====
On May 20 2021, the then Consul and Animo Elava, Harrison I, declared the country a monarchy with the '2021 Royal Decree of Conversion to Monarchy' act. The act saw all diplomatic relations, all dukedoms and the democratic constitution nulled. This was the start of the monarchic restoration era, named so since it's the when Elava worked to regain their foreign relations and internal functions as before the conversion to monarchy.   
With the '2021 Royal Decree of Conversion to Monarchy' act, Harrison I, the then Consul and Animo Elava, declared the country a monarchy on May 20, 2021. All diplomatic contacts, dukedoms, and the democratic constitution were all abolished as a result of the act. This was the commencement of the monarchic restoration era, so dubbed because it was during this time that Elava tried to restore their external ties and internal functions to their pre-monarchy state.   


The monarch swore in a prime minister on April 29th. This was done as allowed by the constitution that was at that time worked on. The prime minister was not relinquished of their duties once the constitution was scrapped, instead they are serving the rest of their term.       
On April 29th, the queen appointed a prime minister. This was done in accordance with the constitution that was being drafted at the time. When the constitution was repealed, the prime minister's obligations were not abrogated; instead, they were extended for the remainder of their mandate.       


One considerable change that has occured in the current monarchic era is that the nation's policy on micronational militaries changed. During the republic era, a military was deemed a waste of time and resources. This changed during early July 2021 as a 'royal Elavan armed forces' was established and the Royal Elavan Cyberforce was incorporated into the new military.       
The nation's position on micronational military has evolved significantly in the present monarchic era. A military was considered a waste of time and resources during the republican era. The Royal Elavan Cyberforce was included into the new military in early July 2021, when a 'royal Elavan armed forces' was founded.       


In late July, the king decided to stop working on a constitution, instead deciding on ruling by absolute power. The reason for the abandonment of the constitution was simply because it was deemed to be too much work for something that would only make it harder and more complicated to execute the micronational vision of the king. The constitution might be picked up again when Elava is considerably much more established and the King does not want as much of an involved ruling style.

Etymology

The Elysian Fields, often known as Elysium, are the basis for Elava's name. In Greek mythology, Elysium is a form of heaven for the brave and good.

The Elavan Crown, the nation's money, is named after the currencies of the Nordic nations, which are also called Crowns. They picked this name to honour the country's heritage, as it is located in Sweden.

Elavian is the demonym for citizens, although Elavan is used for everything else. The 'royal Elavan cyberforce,' as opposed to the 'royal Elavian cyberforce,' is an example. The now-defunct 'Elavian Academy' was an exception, albeit it, too, is now defunct.

Republic Era

Elava was established on October 20, 2020, when the Ex Codice Elava was signed.

The Animo Elava, Harrison I, proclaimed on November 5th that the Ex Codice Elava would no longer serve as its constitution. It will instead be regarded as their foundation document. The reason for this was that the formatting of the Ex Codice Elava made it difficult to do so in the same way that a true constitution text could.

Monarchic Restoration Era

The Royal Elavan Cyberforce was included into the new military in early July 2021, when a 'royal Elavan armed forces' was founded.

Late in July, the monarch decided to abandon development on a constitution and instead rule by absolute authority.
