History

Early history and formation

Ayden Speiter who played an important role in the foundation and birth of Lilylandia as a nation.

Lilylandia's earliest inception was that of Sabersberg. Sabersberg was a micronation that was founded after the death of Frederick von Meister, who was Maximilian von Schroeder's father. Frederick's daughter, Saber, founded a micronation in 2004 by the name of Sabersberg. Maximilian was appointed as the Prime Minister. Eventually, Saber would pass away in 2005 with Moose succeeding her. This early micronation was rooted with corruption, instability, and immaturity within it's community, due to the fact that Maximilian was only an elementary child. Sabersberg continued with Moose as Duke, but it would eventually fall into inactivity until 2014. The idea of Lilylandia came when Maximilian was browsing MicroWiki and came across Sabia and Verona, a micronation that was completely controlled and ran by Plush toys. Maximilian who had owned over 300 plush toys looked at Sabia and Verona in admiration. On 7 July 2014, Maximilian declared the foundation of the Kingdom of Lilylandia. Lilylandia would be a micronation dedicated to a government ran by non-sentient beings.

Immediately following the constitutional convention, Moose was crowned King of Lilylandia. Ayden Speiter was appointed as Prime Minister shortly afterwards. A few weeks after this, Moose passed away. Roxy I succeeded Moose. The first meeting of the Parliament of Lilylandia occurred on 28 July 2014. Roxy presided due to Moose being incapacitated. It's purpose was to begin taking censuses, drawing electoral maps, appointing regional governors, and stabilizing an armed forces. The first meeting of the local governments occurred a week later. Lilylandia's foundation era last until 2016 when Ayden Speiter attempted to overthrow the Monarchy with brute force. His revolution failed and he was arrested.

Lilylandia then held it's first general election in 2016 with Tom Turtleton and the Conservative Party winning the election in a brutal landslide. Tom Turtleton's administration put forth new reforms and fixed loopholes within the government of Lilylandia. Ministers were appointed to Cabinet positions. Lilylandia's development as a nation seemed to be doing well. Many general elections would follow after this one on a period of every six months. The Conservatives would seems to dominate the early period of Lilylandian History. In 2018, Lilylandia gave the Democratic Party a chance to lead the country with Madame Blackberry at the helm. This began the decline of the country from prominence in the plush sector of the MicroWiki Community. Lilylandia would experience major inactivity. In October of that same year, Maximilian would dissolve the country.

After this dissolution, Lilylandians attempted to setup a country without Maximilian called the Germanic Federation. This nation was short-lived however, and failed to prosper. The last iteration of Lilylandia to find some success was Edelein. Edelein would eventually fall to inactivity. General interest was lost in the idea of Lilylandia as a nation. However, after the foundation of Maximilian's newest micronation, Wynnland, interest re-surfaced in bringing back Lilylandia. In early 2020, Maximilian founded the Commonwealth of The Corales which was a micronation based on the nations in the Caribbean. Lilylandians who lived under the government of The Corales would grow unhappy with the idea of it not being the true Lilylandia. This prompted a meeting between high ranking individuals in the Coralish government. On 13 October 2020, the Coralish government declared the re-foundation of Lilylandia. Maximilian openly accepted this idea and allowed for the Coralish government to leave the Wynnish empire.

Geography

Culture

The culture of Lilylandia is very diverse in comparison of other nations. Lilylandian culture has been influenced by many other cultures, most notably, the traditions of America, Germany, Rhodesia, and South Africa.

Plush Toys

One of the major cultural elements of Lilylandian Culture is the recognition of stuffed toys as citizens with basic rights, the ability to make conscious decisions, and the ability to hold political office. These citizens known as Plush play a major role on life in Lilylandia. The ratio of Plush to Human is 50:1. Almost every government in Lilylandian history has had Plushs provide the dominant force and voice of the government.

When Lilylandia was a Kingdom, Plushs were seen as commoners while the Humans were seen as Aristocrats and Nobility. This caused Far-left movements to rise up and try and destroy human involvement with the country. Today, the division of Plush toys and Humans is non existant.
