History

2010's

The original flag of the MA dubbed the "Unity Star".

Not much is known about the history of the M.A. on Google+ due to the shutdown of the platform on 2 April 2019. The Micronational Assembly is presumed to have been found in April 2016 as a Google+ Community by an unknown individual. It rose to prominence in 2017 after micronationalists such as Deron for Super President and Free Thoughts and Ideas joined the community. During this time, the MA was interconnected between YouTube and Google+. Later that year, Nicolas Miranda, one of the owners of the organization at the time, became the Chairman and established an absolute rule over the Micronational Assembly. The absolute rule was met with some opposition as subjected by the landmark legal case The People v Nicolas Miranda. On 31 July 2018, the Charter of the Micronational Assembly was adopted which would significantly shape the modern structure of the MA. On 7 October 2018, Nicolas Miranda resigned as Chair and granted his position to William Wilson. During Wilson's term as Chair, news spread about the shutdown of Google+, this lead to the organization migrating to the first incarnation of the MA Discord Server. On 9 March 2019, Tsar Stefan I became the Chairman of the MA under the newly developed voting system. In August 2019, Würbec, one of the delegates of the MA, declared war on Saspearian, about a few days later a treaty was signed which ended the war. Emperor Anthony I received a message in which supposedly Würbec was attempting to puppet Saspearian. A few days later, he was invited to a group chat with two other people in regards to what to do with the supposed hostility. One of the members insisted on declaring war on Würbec. Others found out about the group chat,  and as a result, Emperor Anthony I was kicked out of the Federation of the United States Server. Emperor Anthony I messaged Corvin I on what was happening in the server, which leads to Anthony I being accused of spying. The Terran Civil War had begun as a result of the tensions between Saspearian and Terra. Then it was agreed upon for the nation of Terra to dissolve to resolve the conflict. The Terran Civil War continued on until it ended later that month. Emperor Anthony I accused certain members of harassment, this lead to a trial in which it was ruled for Emperor Anthony I to be banned from the MA as an executive order. In December 2019, Robert Williams IV Discord account was deleted due to the account being reported to the Discord Support team. It was speculated that Emperor Anthony I reported the Discord account which led to the account being deleted, due to Emperor Anthony I publically stating that he reported the Discord account in August 2019. As a result, the second incarnation of the MA Discord Server was made.

2020's

In February 2020 the Second Charter of the Micronational Assembly was adopted, which was signed by Robert Williams IV. On 24 February 2020 the voting for the MA Council Election of February 2020 was held, later that same day Emperor Anthony I was unbanned from the MA after Robert Williams IV pardoned him and Natlin became the Chairman. Then on 17 July 2020, The second incarnation of the MA Discord Server was deleted due to an unknown reason. The MA Council Election of July 2020 was held on 29 July through 30 July 2020. Hunt P. was elected as the chairman via council vote and election, beginning his term on August 1st. His term would introduce weekly meetings and a multitude of other things but was rife with controversy. The third incarnation of the MA Discord Server was deleted out of Hunt P. due to boredom. He later resigned for the same reason of boredom and appointed Tsar Stefan as the next chairman. On 30 January 2021 Isaac J. White attempted to nuke the discord server to instate his opinion that the assembly should be put to rest for a number of reasons regarding the council members that would be elected. Tsar Stefan I was re-elected to a second consecutive term as the Chairman on 31 January 2021 by the majority of the Council Members who were elected in the January 2021 Election.

Connor Shaw v. The Council

Connor Shaw v. The Council of the Micronational Assembly was a court case that took place on 20 February 2021, and was a countersuit to a case that was supposed to occur the same day. The declaration of suit against the Council was as of follows: "I am suing the Micronational Assembly for attempting to extra-judicially overrule and undermine the MA Charter by allowing a Justice to hold public office." The defendant consisted of Connor Shaw, supported by his lawyer Hunt P. as a legal team. The prosecution consisted of Anthony I, representing the Council of the Micronational Assembly. The Chairman was notably silent for most of the trial, which was pointed out by multiple delegates. A jury was selected from delegates in the Assembly to decide the verdict of the trial. Initially the trial was disorganized and delayed as the illegitimate Attorney was absent until 30 minutes after the trial began. After both defense and prosecution presented their evidence with some debate, the jury conferred and came to a decision. It was the decision of the jury that the Council was breaking the charter, and subsequently the Jewel Republic was stripped of powers as attorney. The Herzetian delegacy was later appointed as Attorney by the Chairman.
