Mahuset, officially the United Kingdom of Greater Mahuset, Slin, Derskov-Viadalvia and the Mahusetan Realm is a proposed merger of the United Kingdom of Greater Mahuset and the Mahusetan Realm, the Empyre of Slin and the Confederate States of Derskov-Viadalvia, it is a self-declared independent nation-state, commonly referred to as a micronation by external observers, with claims in Europe, Antarctica, and Asia. It is governed as a federation, with various systems in its numerous states. Mærtan Ihuset, Radon and Dutch Matsia together make up mainland Mahuset, in Northwestern Europe.

Mahuset is a federated state and a constitutional democratic monarchy with a king, Emilo I and administered by a parliament known as the Triumphant Parliament. While the laws of the states are subordinate to federal law, the federal government does not have any regulations on the means for administering states and as such the states all have their own unique system of governance. It is regarded as a minor inter-micronational diplomatic power and a leading cultural and political power in Europe.

Mahuset, with a mixed market capitalist economy, ranks as having a high level of income equality. It is frequently ranked as a happy and lowly corrupt nation. The national language, Mahusetan, is closely related to Italian, Dutch, Radonic, and English. Mahuset is the only surviving successor to the now defunct Mahusetan predecessors which are the Kingdom of Ihuset, the Kingdom of Matsia, the Kingdom of Radon and all Cookielandic and Kittylandic states.

Mahuset is a "Fifth World" micronation with a score of 12 under the Boodlesmythe-Tallini System, and scores 4.2 on the Categoric-Gradial/Linden's (Revised) System. It scores 3 under the Billbrough-Pressland Micronational Ranking System, it is a 4th world micronation under Dan's System of Classification, it has 4.2 under Dresner's System of Classification. It scores the top score of 5 under Miles' Scale of Economic Potential, it scores 4.6 under David's Micronational Potential Index, and it is a fair democracy with a score of 4 under Matthew's Democracy System of classification.

History

Dutch City era (1254 - 2007)

The earliest mention of the name Alkmaar is in a 10th-century document. As the village grew into a town, it was granted City rights in the Netherlands in 1254. The oldest part of Alkmaar lies on an ancient sand bank that afforded some protection from the sea during medieval times. Even so, it is only a couple of metres above the surrounding region, which consists of some of the oldest polders in existence.

In 1573 the city successfully withstood a siege by Spanish forces under the leadership of Fernando Álvarez de Toledo, 3rd Duke of Alba. It was a turning point in the Eighty Years War and gave rise to the expression Bij Alkmaar begint de victorie ("Victory begins at Alkmaar"). The event is still celebrated every year in Mahuset on October 8, the day the siege ended.

In 1799, during the French revolutionary war , an Anglo-Russian expeditionary force captured the city but was ultimately defeated in the Battle of Castricum. The French victory was commemorated on the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.

The North Holland Canal, opened in 1824, was dug through Alkmaar. In 1865 and 1867 the railways between Alkmaar and Den Helder and between Alkmaar and Haarlem were built respectively.

In the second half of the 20th century, Alkmaar expanded quickly with development of new neighbourhoods. On October 1, 1972, the town of Oudorp and the southern portions of Koedijk and Sint Pancras were added to the municipality of Alkmaar.

Pre Ihuset era (2007 - 2012)

Mahuset began as a fictional nation in a fictional world in 2007. It was called: "Emiel's World" and was an Empire, Emiel was the emperor and was called "Cool Emiel". It was non-serious but there were plans to revive it in the Ihuset era. But, if it was never founded, Emiel never would have come in contact with politics. It had a dialect of Dutch called "Emilan" (not to be confused with the Maertan dialect), it had an alphabet.

Ihuset and Early Mahuset era (May 2012 - November 2012)

Ihuset was founded by Emiel to get the feeling of autonomy, it wasn't serious like Emiel's world and there were plans to revive Emiel's World, these plans were canceled. Mahuset was founded as a unity between Matsia and Ihuset, the original name was: "United Nations of Mahuset", it had quickly changed to: "Royal United Nations of Mahuset". It was inspired by Ancient Rome and Holland. Mahuset quickly gained diplomacy and a great significance within the MicroWikia community, Vetria had established Diplomatic Relations with Mahuset in this era.

Modern Mahusetan era (November 2012 - Present)

Mahuset had the first stable government in this era. It changed from "Royal United Nations of Mahuset" to "Kingdom of Mahuset", and from "Kingdom of Mahuset" to "Confederated Kingdom of Mahuset" and back to "Kingdom of Mahuset" which is the current stable government. At this time the Eniakist ideology was started and gained a great significance. When the Eniakisation of Mahuset started, Mahuset started to reach a higher HDI fairly quick. Due to the rapid expansion of Eniakism which had been deemed similar to the Rise of Communism, the Ashukov Federation banned Eniakism and with that Relations with Mahuset. The Triumphant Parliament had started in this era which marked the end of the pure Eniakist government and the start of the first semi-Eniakist government since May 2013.
