The KOS was formed as a vassal of Secundomia on January 26th, 2010, because Parker I felt he was losing power of his republic, Secundomia. So he created an absolute monarchy. He did not want to leave Secundomia, however, so the KOS remained a vassal.
Originally Iceia was the only territory of the KOS.
First Extra-terrestrial Claims
Two days later Parker I expanded the KOS to include South Plutopia, and the Mercury territories.
Ida and Northland
The next day Parker I split Mercury territories into two states, he cut a capital territory out of Iceia, known as Northland. It includes the north pole and an area 40 feet around it. He also claimed Ida as his final claim. He said "Sterling will stop expanding for at least a month."
King's State's Expansion
On Feb. 20th, 2010, the King's State grew to include Charcot Island, Antarctica.
Breaking off of Duchy of Charcot
Charcot Island later became the Duchy of Charcot.
Dissolution of all Extra-terrestrial claims
Eventually, all extra-terrestrial claims were dissolved.
After the Kingdom of Sterling became inactive and unused, the King of Sterling abdicated, and formed the Colony of Sterling under the Republic of Secundomia. Parker I was assigned as protector of the colony. J became protector of the colony after him, as appointed by the President.
The COS's national anthem is Grapevine Fires by the alt-rock group Death Cab For Cutie. A video can be found here
