== The History of The Republic of Chico ==
 
Chico was unofficially created in 2010 and officially declared independence on  March 5th, 2011 with 5 departments,its own currency ,and 5 citizens.As a very poor beginning nation its people suffered greatly. The government considered to begin exporting products ,but Chico had very few natural recources.At this point the Republic was so poor it used rocks to make simple small storage buildings. To make matters worse people who were mad at the government began to destroy the few buildings constructed.The government was forced to move from its original spot to a foreign building.To the luck of the government a product was found that could possibly rise the economy,adobe. The economy grew and more citezens were enlisted the small storage buildings were stronger, sadly this was a short phase and on 9-27 The Month of Pain terrorst attack broke out the government was wasting money on trying to stop the madness, thankfully on 10-26 the government manged to stop the attack and was ready to establish armed forces sadly most of Chico was deystroyed. On 10-28 Congress declared Chico lost 3 departments and its special constitutional territory. Then the presidential elections began former president Jose Gibaja against Juan Cornego.Jose Gibaja won and tried to make projects to benifit the nation.Nothing happened during his government except waste the nations money.During his 2nd government Congress declared The Republic of Chico will leave its currency and use USD. Jose Gibaja acted more as a dictator than a president so both of his governments were combined so hes considered Chico's 1st President. On 9-15-11 there was a presidental election Jose Gibaja against Juan Cornejo again.Juan won and is curretly still President(Please note that this document view the History of Chico as a whole.Jose Gibaja's government and Juan Cornejo's government are two separate states ,The Republic of Chico and The United Provinces of Chico)
 
  
== Pre-Sunset ==
+
== Etymology ==
The Empire of Sunset was a micronation taking about as much space as modern day mainland Chico. Run by "warriors", they abused every single person in the empire. Jose Gibaja , modern day president, lead a revolution. Finally in Liberty Square the Sunset Empire gave up to Jose Gibaja.

The micronation's name derives from an event that happened very early it's history. The event surrounds the president of Chico, Jose Gibaja, who was roaming around the ruins of the Second Republic of the Colonies (An earlier culture which existed before Chico) when he stumbled upon an injured dove and a young girl trying to nurse the wounded animal who had named it "Chico". When the young girl left,Gibaja took the bird to his home were he nursed it back to health. Days passed and the bird had found a way out of the cage and flew away. The event inspired Gibaja to make a new micronation and the name of the dove was used as the name for the new nation. Since the republic was small and the name "Chico" means small in Spanish, the name made sense.

Chico's history is divided into 2 different timelines; Micronational History and Inherited History. Chico's micronational history focuses on Chico and it's past cultures who are deemed as micronations in their own right. The inherited history focuses on the history of Chico's territory which embodies any ancient civilization that inhabited that territory. The micronational history is divided up into 3 eras; Pre-Gibajian Era, Gibajian Era, and the Republican Era. Each era is also divided into periods which help differentiate the cultures between each era.

Later on, the Robins and their followers began vandalizing the territory and Gibaja, attempting to escape from the Robins created a small group with his followers known as SSI. This group's mission was to find a place untouched from the Robins' influence and vandalism, the group eventually found a land and dubbed the new terrain The Colony of Eagle de Condor. This "colony" eventually grew into a large republic and was renamed the Republic of the Colonies. This micronation, like the Republic of Sunset, was also unaware of the existence of other micronations and became unintentionally became an organized state. It came to end when the Robins found the settlements made by the micronation and destroyed them.

While a Second Republic was founded soon after, it collapsed only after a few days.

Etymology

The micronation's name derives from an event that happened very early it's history. The event surrounds the president of Chico, Jose Gibaja, who was roaming around the ruins of the Second Republic of the Colonies (An earlier culture which existed before Chico) when he stumbled upon an injured dove and a young girl trying to nurse the wounded animal who had named it "Chico". When the young girl left,Gibaja took the bird to his home were he nursed it back to health. Days passed and the bird had found a way out of the cage and flew away. The event inspired Gibaja to make a new micronation and the name of the dove was used as the name for the new nation. Since the republic was small and the name "Chico" means small in Spanish, the name made sense.

History

Chico's history is divided into 2 different timelines; Micronational History and Inherited History. Chico's micronational history focuses on Chico and it's past cultures who are deemed as micronations in their own right. The inherited history focuses on the history of Chico's territory which embodies any ancient civilization that inhabited that territory. The micronational history is divided up into 3 eras; Pre-Gibajian Era, Gibajian Era, and the Republican Era. Each era is also divided into periods which help differentiate the cultures between each era.

Pre-Gibajian Era

The Pre-Gibjian Era is any time before the arrival of Jose Gibaja in the Colony of Chico Viejo. This era is marked with many groups which acted like micronations although were unaware of the existence of such entities.


Pre-Sunset Period

This includes the Empire of Sunset which was a group of vandalistic adolescents who inhabited the modern-day Colony of Chico Viejo.

When Gibaja caught wind of the uproar, the groups were too uncooperative and refused to unite once more putting an end to this period.

The Colonial Period

This period marked the arrival of two brothers known as the "Robins". Gibaja tried to befriend the two brothers, but a heated discussion ended the friendship and a grudge was formed between the Robins and Gibaja. By this time, the Robins already had a large influence over the people of Sunset and quickly began excluding Gibaja and his followers from the rest of community. Later on, the Robins and their followers began vandalizing the territory and Gibaja, attempting to escape from the Robins created a small group with his followers known as SSI. This group's mission was to find a place untouched from the Robins' influence and vandalism, the group eventually found a land and dubbed the new terrain The Colony of Eagle de Condor. This "colony" eventually grew into a large republic and was renamed the Republic of the Colonies. This micronation, like the Republic of Sunset, was also unaware of the existence of other micronations and became unintentionally became an organized state. It came to end when the Robins found the settlements made by the micronation and destroyed them. This was followed by a revival attempt known as the Second Republic of the Colonies but it was short lived and was quickly destroyed by the Robins as well.
