History of Gaerstania

The Munkkia Split

On the 27th of June 2015, a few days after the one year anniversary of Munkkias existance, the Council of Munkkia held a meeting. President Mathias offered two solutions to an impending problem: Two Council members would be leaving Munkkian territory shortly, and Mathias feared this would result in the end of the People's Republic of Munkkia, and would lead them away from micronationalism all together. Mathias proposed a split within Munkkia, where President Mathias, who reamined in Munkkia territory, would establish a new state, and Angutivik-Casper Rúnur Tausen Hansen could establish his own sovereign nation on the Faroe Islands.
