no blood was spilled, though injuries after the coup time are counted.

The May 2021 Roscamistan Coup d'etat was the coup in Roscamistan from 17 May 2021 to 18 May 2021 by Captain James Irwin and Kayden Conboy with help from Deputy Defence Minister Dean Merritt which ended the First Jacobs Presidency and brought James Irwin to power.


The coup took place in the school most of the government at the time went to, Gaelscoil Dara. The day was going smoothly until the former presidential candidate Dean Merritt with help from other dissatisfied ministers including James Irwin, Premier of Mervustan province and Kayden Conboy, Chancellor of Galway City, accused Thomas Jacobs of mismanagement of Roscamistan and destroying Mervustan's autonomy.

A few ministers, including Tadhg O’Regan defended President Jacobs's actions as the chief executive and eventually a bloodless coup led to the overthrow of President Jacobs's government and Thomas Jacobs himself. The rebels otherwise know as the provincial guards of Mervustan outnumbered Jacobs and the RLF nearly 3 to 1 and they easily took control of the Government. The conflict that followed was know as the Roscamistan civil war, formally known as the Mervustan Conflict.

Immediate aftermath

What made the Coup even more embarrassing for the loyalists was that three months before the day Roscamistan was founded.

The day after, James Irwin became President and Major Kayden Conboy became the Vice-President replacing Culann Burke. Thomas Jacobs was eventually put under house arrest and reduced to Minister of Internal Polish Affairs. As the Mervustan Conflict started to take off, the streets became unsafe as terror attacks were very common.

Gradual end of the Irwin Administration

As time went on Irwins support started to crumble due to neglect and mismanagement. The Mervustan Conflict ended on 21 June when Vice President of Roscamistan Kayden Conboy walked out on James, disbanding the Mervustan provincial guards leaving no one left for the RLF to fight. Two days later, on the 23 June 2021 James Irwin resigned from office.


The coup is immortalised as a national holiday in Roscamistan as a lesson to people who “wish to try and repeat such a attack in democracy again”. The leader of the coup James Irwin was given the honorary title of Captain in Chief of Mervustan or just Captain for short. Kayden Conboy received an honorary chancellorship of Galway city for his work as Chancellor of Galway City and later the second Vice President of Roscamistan.

The national holiday is celebrated by fireworks.

The title of Sheriff of Mervustan was given to Dean Merritt for his work in Roscamistan
