The Aarianian Union of North America is a sovereign state founded on February 19, 2011 by Grand Marquette Aaron Green. Aariania is made up of 28 different self-governed Provinces and 2 Administrative Districts, each of which work individually to provide for themselves and the Aarianian central government, which is called the "Aarianian State".
Aariania's primary goal is to become a safe-haven for those wishing to seek refuge from the problems in the United States, primarily racism and other forms of discrimination. Aariania wishes to provide a safe environment for everyone of all races, religions, genders, sexual preferences, country-of-origin, and ethnicity. Aariania wants a country full of exotic and diverse cultures where everyone gets along, as well as embracing Southern heritage in a peaceful and accepting way.
Aariania was one of many micronations in a small area of land formerly called "Atlantia". Aariania was the third nation to be created in Atlantia, out of a total of 37. Aariania is now the only surviving nation of Atlantia, which became Seaborgia, but is now considered defunct. Aariania was a founding member of the Atlantian Union and the Seaborgian Confederation, and was the only nation to survive the destruction of both. Aariania is based along the border of North Carolina and South Carolina within the United States and currently holds Fifth World status.

|1||Orsonia||Yappy City||The Province of Orsonia was created through the merging of the first original Region, Rubikia, and a later Region, Calacoala. Orsonia is well known for hosting the capital of Aariania, Yappy City, after the original capital, Jacobia City, in the former Region of Jacobia (now part of the Aldonian Province) was burned down in the Jacobia City Arson Attack. The home of the Grand Marquette, the Blue Sheet Palace is in Yappy City as well. Since the merging of Rubikia and Calacoala, Orsonia now leads the Aarianian Agriculture industry, hosts multiple foreign embassies, the Paleontology Program HQ as well as multiple vital Air Force and Land Force bases.||Province||[Partially] Baron Jason Green / [Partially] Grand Marquette Aaron Green|
|2||Oyster Clan||Oyster City||Named after the Clan founded by Grand Marquette Aaron Green, Oyster Clan was originally a rapidly growing Clan that quickly spread all throughout South Charlotte, North Carolina. When the Province of Cartairia was absorbed into Oyster Clan, Oyster Clan inherited Cartairia's many homeless shelters and successful trade ports.||Province||Baron Robert Kaplan|
|3||Menjasovia||Fort Arachnid||Formerly Aariania's largest Province, Menjasovia was undoubtedly the largest project of the 1st Merging Phase, as it engulfed the Regions of Azar, Zepapua, Lovokosa, Lomakkia, Aariania L'Origine, Taikon, and Olive Clan. Menjasovia was a member of a former independence movement called "Sovakosa", along with Turkibia and Morhagen. Menjasovia hosts the country's Ministry of Culture HQ, a beautiful wildlife reserve, some military bases, and has the St. Pokey Creek flowing through it.||Province||Baroness Phoebe Zheng|
|4||Kartarn||Bristol Beach||Another one of the never-modified Provinces, Kartarn is one of the smallest yet single most important Provinces in all of Aariania. Before the 1st Merging Phase began, Kartarn lead 13.2% of Aariania's entire economy. After the merge, Kartarn comes in at a close second, placing right after Aldonia.||Province||Baroness Srinidhi Subramaniam|
|5||Kanawha||Fort Wasp||Kanawha was created during the 2nd Merging Phase through the merging of the Provinces of Coyopa, Mobania, and Karmyna. Coyopa was created through the merging of Nabemori, South Mevalon, North Mevalon, Unoktika, Tergus, Otland, and Sokenhaven during the 1st Merging Phase. Coyopa was the result of a long anticipated goal for the unification for the original Southern Provinces. Each Province had much to offer to the unified Province. South Mevalon and North Mevalon both hosted vital ports and Naval bases along the St. Kekey Creek, Unoktika lead the nation's physical workforce, and Sokenhaven and Otland both provided Land Force and Air Force bases used for national security against both internal and external threats. Tergus and Nabemori both provided research facilities and hotspots for Aarianian engineers and explorers. Karmyna was one of Aariania's newer Provinces which provided steep cliffs, mountains, and reservations for wildlife, which are now part of Kanawha. On the southeastern side of the St. Kekey Creek, thick bushes, trees, and thorns prevent human settlement. The popular Aarianian-based band, "Stone Muffin", was founded in Karmyna, now hosted in Fort Wasp, Kanawha. Stone Muffin's first gig also took place in their home, Fort Wasp, Kanawha. Inherited from Mobania, the National Border Control HQ was located in Moblin City, Kanawha, but was moved to Cojniton, Ogjeksia in early May, 2017.||Province||Baroness Emily Robinson|
|6||Salbania||Sekrakus||Salbania was created through the merging of some of Aariania's most powerful original Provinces, Lomanna, Weston, Dakaivia, and Sokenhaivia. Salbania inherited the numerous successful ports from the Province of Lomanna, the transportation and travel routes of Weston, and the sucessful economy of Sokenhaivia. Dakaivia was home to the leader of the Aarianian Communist Party, which has been reasonably sucessful, but has been denied any Communist practices. Salbania is also to location of the filming of the music video for "Straight Into Oregon" by Justin Ashley.||Province||Baroness Anna Marie Switzer|
|7||Aldonia||Coppistan||The leading economic Province in Aariania, Aldonia was the result of the merging of some of the original Provinces; Turkibia, Morhagen, Jacobia, Turkiban, and Zakovia. Oyster Clan and Porzkybia were invited as well, but they turned down the offer. Aldonia is home to the former Turkibani State House, Aarianian Military HQ, the Aarianian Water System, the Jacobia City Arson Attack Memorial, and a former farmhouse. Aldonia is Aariania's fourth most populated Province. Coppenhaivia later joined Aldonia (Kuljasovia, at the time) and offered many things the original Coppistan had to offer; the Southeast Tri-Alliance Peach Fields, the abandoned village of Fort Caleigh, and the former Coppistani village of Fort Scout (later renamed Coppistan). Coppenhaivia was annexed from the Republic of Coppistan in February 2017. Coppistan was relocated to a new location and the former territory was annexed to become the Region of Coppenhaivia, which has now become part of Aldonian Province. Coppistan is the capital of Aldonia and is now the largest city of Aariania. Current Baron Ian Wilson is also the Vice Marquette of Aariania as well.||Province||Vice Marquette Ian Wilson|
|8||Salbazan||Central Rock||Salbazan was the result of merging the Regions of Cengeksia, Smitios, Birufia, and Carpathia during the 1st Merging Phase, and Porzkybia joined Salbazan during the 2nd Merging Phase. Salbazan hosts vital national defence facilities as well as military bases used for protection against the United States. When Salbazan swallowed Porzkybia, it inherited the meeting of 2 major creeks, the St. Pokey Creek and St. Aoife Creek which combine to form the St. Kekey Creek. Porzkybia also had a history of natural disasters along the national highway, which Salbazan has now inherited. The Porzkybian Royal Bridge, which stands over the final few feet of the St. Pokey Creek as it drains into the St. Kekey Creek, was attacked during a major flood, destroying the bridge. With the Porzkybian Royal Bridge being one of the only crossings across the St. Pokey Creek, the bridge was needed for travel across the country. The Porzkybian Royal Bridge was rebuilt, but will never be as stable as the original.||Province||Baron Michael Bontekoe|
|9||Yamasaldia||Vikke||The largest result of the merging of Provinces in total, Yamasaldia was originally created from merging Aksaldia, Yamazen, Seaborgia, Saltland, Morios, Lumuoipe, and eastern Lenios. Yamasaldia's name comes from it's 2 most important Regions' names; Yamazen and Aksaldia. Yamasaldia ranks fourth in Provincial Rankings' economy ranking, and hosts many things provided from the previous Provinces. Yamazen provided the Nature Preservation HQ and the shallow Thorn Ravine. Aksaldia's economy influenced Morios's and Saltland's many foreign embassies, as Lumuoipe provided it's Terrorist Investigation HQ. Kaposs was later annexed by Yamasaldia, giving it Lake Kaposs and a minor US and Aarianian Plumbing Company, Mc Coy Plumbing. Ailend and Winnland later joined Yamasaldia, giving Yamasaldia the responsibility of maintaining the Western Branch of the Aarianian Land Force and the city of Sujnual, formerly in Ailend, which is a major contributor to the Aarianian Power Program. In total, the Yamasaldian Province is made up of 10 former Regions, making it the largest merging project in Aarianian history. In early August, 2017, Yamasaldia and Topeka split territory of the Morrison Family YMCA, giving Yamasaldia 6 soccer fields and a parking lot, and the main building and parking lot to Topeka. This solved the poor income issue in Topeka, and helped with multiple Aarianian Projects as a whole.||Province||Baron Devan Schneider|
|10||Ogjeksia||Cojniton||Ogjeksia leads the Provincial Rankings' quality of life statistics. During the Merging Phase, Ogjeksia swallowed up the Regions of Bakkelvia, Aughosia, and Raionia. Ogjeksia later annexed Couvyne, during the 2nd Merging Phase, and gained Couvyne's economic superpower, the National Defence HQ, and many storage facilities. In early May, 2017, the National Border Control HQ was moved from Moblin City, Kanawha to Cojniton, Ogjeksia, putting Ogjeksia in charge of national border security. Ogjeksia also gained more tourism when it annexed a soccer field and a local baseball field in mid-July 2017.||Province||Baron Andrew Olson|
|11||Topeka||Coshocton||Topeka was the result of the merging of the Regions of Faroedia and Lagossia, after the 1st Merging Phase but before the 2nd Merging Phase; not during either. Topeka is home to the St. Gumby Creek, Lake Charming, the Lagossia Nature Reservation, and Lake Morrison, which hosts Sonsar Island, a man-made island overlooking the beautiful sights Lake Morrison has to offer. Sonsar Island has considered breaking away from the Province of Topeka in the past. Topeka works with Yamasaldia in order to maintain public safety and keep out illegal immigrants. In early August, 2017, Yamasaldia and Topeka split territory of the Morrison Family YMCA, giving Yamasaldia 6 soccer fields and a parking lot, and the main building and parking lot to Topeka. This solved the poor income issue in Topeka, and helped with multiple Aarianian Projects as a whole.||Province||Baron Vikram Iyengar|
|12||Trestonia||Kapol||Trestonia was the product of the Regions of Sokova, Luxobaga, and Cherokee during the 1st Merging Phase. Trestonia is a common trade route with the United States as well as a common tourist route. During the 2nd Merging Phases, the Region of Colexico joined Trestonia. Colexico was formerly an independent nation that was formed when the Kingdom of Saltland broke apart into many different micronations. Colexico (now part of Trestonia) and Taikon (Now part of Menjasovia) eventually joined Aariania. Today, all the former countries of the Seaborgian Confederation's mainland, including the Republic of Coppistan, Kingdom of Saltland, Democratic Republic of Kinusia, and the North Saltlandic Federation are part of Aariania. Vivannia was not a part of the Seaborgian mainland.||Province||Baron Oliver Zerillo|
|13||Gesmuoipe||Kekey||Gesmuoipe was originally created through the uniting of the Regions of Aarodam, San Escobar, and New Syria to become "Keshmuoipe". During the 1st Merging Phase, Kazmuoipe, Kekistan, and South Kekistan were all invited to join Keshmuoipe. Kazmuoipe was recreated along the eastern border of Keshmuoipe, but was annexed during the 2nd Merging Phase to become "Gesmuoipe". Gesmuoipe hosts many settlement projects, a few tourist attractions, and multiple trade routes along it's mountainous terrain.||Province||Baroness Ridhi Yarlagadda|
|14||Denison||Alton||Previously named "Fornyard", Denison was established as a Province during a major expansion phase of Aariania. Denison is a hotspot for the rich and wealthy. Denison is very large and hosts parts of the St. Pokey Creek, which provides a great spot for naval bases. Denison also hosts 2 baseball fields, which brings in high tourism. The original name, "Fornyard", comes from a District of the Aarianian Empire. The current Baron of Denison, Baron Kris MacKinnon, is also the first transgender bisexual member of the Aarianian government.||Province||Baron Rachel [Kris] MacKinnon|
|15||Batavia||Adam City||Establshed during the 2nd Merging Phases through the unification of Lybaria and South Elizabeth, Batavia is in charge of keeping it's northeastern neighbor, Judacia, which is a hotspot for drugs and other mischievous events, under control and maintaining public safety. The addition of South Elizabeth brought in the many highly populated and residential areas, which was annexed from the United States in early 2017. South Elizabeth was once part of neighborhood community of the United States called "Elizabeth Townes" and showed decent autonomy as a self-governing district. With the southern half surrounded by Aarianian borders on 3 sides, this lead to the peaceful annexation of the southern half of Elizabeth Townes, which became the Region of South Elizabeth. South Elizabeth gave the new Province of Batavia 28 homes, around 72 people, and Lake Krane. The current Baroness of Batavia was the former Grand Marchioness as well.||Province||Baroness Gracie Gardner|
|16||Oakansas||Fort Hydra||Formed through the merging of Lumuoipe (the 2nd Lumuoipe) and North Omeevia, the Province of Oakansas hosts the St. Garon Creek, a small creek which far too small for transportation or naval use, but is often used for research and environmental analysis. Most of northern Oakansas is uninhabitable, leaving them with few residents and mostly made up of temporary research teams. However, Oakansas does hold a great position bordering the United States, also holding a large fence at the border to keep out immigrants. Southern Oakansas hosts many campgrounds, tourist sights, 2 baseball fields, an American-Aarianian summer camp, Lake Chappie, travel and tourist paths, and a few military bases used for national defence. Oakansas leads the Aarianian Tourism Program by a large amount.||Province||Baron Joseph Navarro|
|17||Judacia||Dellinger||Judacia holds the lowest quality of life out of any of the Provinces. The territory was once the 4th Region of Aariania called "Voltland" but was sold to West Resort due to lack of income and drug problems. From early 2014 to late 2016, Aarianian drug problems had risen drastic amounts. The most noticeable was once the former Region of Voltland was annexed, leading to believe that Voltland was the main location for use of illegal drugs. Investigations in September, 2016 proved this to be true, finding a large stockpile of illegal drugs. In early 2017, Judacia was approved the legalization of marijuana use in an attempt to contain the use of drugs across Aariania. Judacia was a great campground before the legalization of marijuana, but when the legalization proved successful, the Aarianian State chose the containment of drugs over tourism for the Province of Judacia.||Province||Baroness Jude Aljakhbeer|
|18||Resort||Farcallow||The first nation to be formed in Atlantia, the Commonwealth of Resort was founded in August 2008, calling itself a "safe haven for mountain bikers". In 2015, Resort declared the state of civil war and in 2016 Resort lost, leading to the creation of West Resort. Resort later fell to anarchy and West Resort took over the territory. West Resort was later destroyed by the Atlantian Union during the Atlantian War and the territory was abandoned for a while. During the 1st Merging Phase, Aariania made a large expansion and the Resortian territory was annexed, making it the 30th Region of Aariania (now the 18th Province). Resort continues to provide popular destination for both foreign and local bikers. Since major expansions in August, 2017, Resort now also hosts a small electrical power plant that serves both Aariania and the United States, as well as multiple playgrounds and parking lots.||Province||Baroness Haley Vlahos|
|19||New Estonia||Coyopa||After the Aarianian Civil War ended on February 4th, 2017 (see "Wars/Conflicts"), the Kingdom of Bradley successfully gained independence from Aariania and moved away. The Kingdom of Bradley later made a compromise to be represented as a separate Province of Aariania, making it one of the few Provinces disconnected from the mainland. New Estonian city, Coyopa, is the secondary de facto capital of Aariania. New Estonia is named as another tribute to Aariania's longing to join an alliance with the Republic of Estonia, which was granted on March 16, 2017.||Province||[Partially] Baroness Sara Green / [Partially] Grand Marquette Aaron Green|
|20||Allinol||Thurmond||Allinol hosts a the nation's first public elementary school as well as the Aarianian Emergency Responder HQ, which also doubles as Ladder 32 for Charlotte, North Carolina. Allinol is the first of only 2 Provinces to have the flag of the Confederate States displayed in the design. A small debate has gone on about whether it represents racism or not. The Aarianian State repeatedly states that flags can not represent racism, unless used in that connotation. Grand Marquette Aaron Green once said in a speech "A flag can not be racist. People can be racist, but not all people who support the Confederate flag are racist. I am not racist, I do not support slavery, and I know this nation does not either. As long as we don't make the flag represent racism, the Confederate flag will not represent racism." Allinolese Baron Zak Stark who purposely ran for Baron of Allinol opposed to other Provinces because Baron Stark is a black man who supports the Confederate flag, and wanted to help support it's non-racist side. The constellation on the flag is the constellation of Aries the ram, which is the national animal of Aariania.||Province||Baron Zak Stark|
|21||Glyceland||Hollony||Glyceland is the largest Province of Aariania. Glyceland hosts multiple military bases used to keep an eye on the United States. In mid-June, 2017, Glyceland made a major expansion and annexed the South Mecklenburg Presbyterian Church and a few baseball and soccer fields, which became part of the city of Cranfield, the largest city in Aariania. The Glycelandic expansion increased Glycelandic tourism through recreational activities and religious activities. Glyceland also hosts a few Aarianian-built cities and a nature reservation, as well as some trade routes and trade outposts. The name "Glyceland" comes from a former district of the Kingdom of Aariania.||Province||Baroness Gillian Abrams|
|22||Durango||Vybora||Named after Durango, Colorado, the Province of Durango is the one of the southernmost Provinces. Durango is located in the territory of the former RMO Republic, and is lead by former leader, Taha Sihorwala. Southeastern Durango has beautiful scenery along the St. Kekey Creek, which attracts many American and Aarianian citizens. Durango's original flag is a tribute to the State of North Carolina, but the flag of the Region of Atchison was reused when Durango and Atchison were merged during the 2nd Merging Phase.||Province||Baron Taha Sihorwala|
|23||Dolkybia||Stanley||Aariania's first administrative district was created as a compromise for high levels of political tension. Dolkybia is a District, not a Province. This allows Dolkybia to have a slightly more independent governing system, and allows certain parts of the Constitution of The Aarianian Union to be ignored. Dolkybia was created from the Dolkybian Communist Containment Treaty, a treaty signed by the leader of the Communist Party of Aariania (CPA) and the Grand Marquette. The Dolkybian Communist Containment Treaty allowed the creation of a communist administrative District for the CPA to govern. The CPA committed illegal inconstitutional acts of communism upon the citizens of Salbania, where they were formerly positioned, so the District of Dolkybia was created to allow the CPA to run a communist government without going against the Constitution of the Aarianian Union. The District of Dolkybia goes by many names; the "District of Dolkybia", "Dolkybia", the "Dolkybian Soviet Socialist Republic", the "Dolkybian SSR", the "Administrative District of the Dolkybian Soviet Socialist Republic", the "Administrative District of the Dolkybian SSR", the "Aarianian Administrative District of the Dolkybian Soviet Socialist Republic", the "Aarianian Administrative District of the Dolkybian SSR", and the "Dolkybian Soviet Socialist Republic District of Aariania".||Administrative District||Baron Jacob Woodcook|
|24||Frisco||Hetwash||Disconnected from the mainland, Frisco serves as the midpoint between the Province of New Estonia and Aldonia. Frisco is a popular tourist attraction for both Aarianians and Americans, and the large Frisconese fields provide a suitable area for outdoor sports, and the smaller wooded area serves well for rural residential settlements and Land Force bases.||Province||vacant|
|25||North Elizabeth||Kulton||When the southern half of North Carolinian neighborhood, Elizabeth Townes, was annexed to become the Region of South Elizabeth (now Batavia), the northern half of the neighborhood had mixed feelings. During the 2nd Merging Phase, Lybaria and South Elizabeth merged and Aariania decided to annex the northern half of the neighborhood as well, now hosting 155 homes and around 400 residents. North Elizabeth brings in a large income through taxes, private businesses, and tourism, as well as helping with Aarianian recognition through a inflated population and increased public support.||Province||Baroness Hajarah Sadiq|
|26||Couvyne||Puldone||The name "Couvyne" was reused after Ogjeksia and Yamasaldia annexed the original Couvyne during the 2nd Merging Phase. The 2nd Merging Phase also lead to the Aarianian annexation of what is now the Provinces of Couvyne, Carolina, and North Elizabeth. Couvyne is slightly disconnected from the mainland and is very bare and desolate. Couvyne hosts a few small, fragile huts, and the Couvyne Canyon, a large canyon with a creek that leads to the St. Babe Creek, the result of the St. Garon Creek. Couvyne is also governed by Baron Aiden Howard, who was formerly the President of the Republic of Coppistan.||Province||Baron Aiden Howard|
|27||Carolina||Ginger||Named after North Carolina and South Carolina, the preceded rulers of the current Aarianian territory, Carolina is a small Province bordering the United States and the Provinces of Judacia, North Elizabeth, and Couvyne in the northern area. Carolina is primarily populated by supporters and activists of the Knights of Columbus, which has wide representation throughout the Province of Carolina and the nearby areas. Carolina also hosts a small US Goodwill Donation center.||Province||Baroness Madeline Watts|
|28||Ellington||Caswell||Established as the 29th Region of Aariania (now the 28th Province), Ellington was annexed due to high support for Aariania by the public. Ellington has been the only Province that was annexed from the United States due to local support. Ellington mostly holds open fields commonly used for tourism, sports, movies, and other recreational activities. Ellington also holds a small strip of a forest, which hosts Land Force Base, Fort Polecat, which is named after the Province animal, the Polecat.||Province||Baroness Kristin Ebert|
|29||Dixieland||Osage||Dixieland was annexed as the 30th Province, but was lowered to 29th soon after due to the merging of the Provinces of Calacoala and Rubikia. Dixieland was under construction as a neighborhood enclave, but functions as a separate neighborhood/Province since its annexation on July 15, 2017. Dixieland hosts 11 houses (1 of which was built after the annexation) and serves an incredible trading spot, headquarters for foreign expeditions, multiple Land Force and Air Force bases, as well as aid to the Aarianian Urbanization Program. Soon after the annexation of Dixieland, the Aarianian State received heavy concerned feedback, accusing the Aarianian State of vandalism and racism, neither of which were true. Allinolese Baron Zak Stark in particular was infuriated at this, stating that "just because something vaguely symbolizes the South, like the word "Dixieland," doesn't mean that racism is it's default meaning. Remember when we used to have our own opinions? Remember when we used to actually think before just blindly believing everything the US government says?! This is exactly what were fighting against!!"||Province||vacant|
|30||Camania||Otland||Camania was annexed as the 2nd Administrative District and the 30th overall member of the Aarianian Union. Camania hosts a large middle school, as well as it's football and baseball field. Camania is known for the Aarianian Land Force Youth Group HQ, strong Land Force and Air Force bases, it's popular sport-related tourism, and the fact that it hosts the first Aarianian public middle school.||Administrative District||Baroness Jane Xing|
The Aarianian government, which goes by it's proper name "The Aarianian State", created it's own form of government in which there would be 3 different legs, The Royal Family, The Council of Five, and the Grand Council. This form of government came to be known as the "Aarianian Triarchy". The Grand Council is an assembly of 21 people who tend to deal with public issues, civil disputes, petitions, and court-cases. The Grand Council is about the Aarianian equivalent of the United States' Supreme Court.
The Royal Family is the top branch which leads the nation. It is currently only made up of Grand Marquette Aaron Green. The Royal Family proposes all important decisions and topics to the Council of Five, and interacts with other nations. When the Royal Family makes a decision, they propose it the the Aarianian Council of Five, who will then vote on the subject; majority vote winning.
Aariania also is currently made up of 28 different Provinces and 1 Administrative District, which are smaller governments within the Aarianian State. They are similar to the Provinces and Territories of Canada, however, Aariania has a slightly larger central government. Each Province elects 1 representative who governs the Province they represent. These representatives go by the title of "Barons." Provincial powers are put below the powers of the Royal Family, Council of Five, and the Grand Council. Barons may choose to be represented in the Council of Five, but not the Grand Council. The capital Province is Orsonia which contains the overall capital city, Yappy City. The secondary de facto capital is Coyopa, New Estonia.
In January 2017, Aariania was less than .19 square miles and had 60 different Provinces (Called "Regions" at the time). Due to the lack of benefits to have come from many Regions, many of the Regions were merged with one another, making internal relations much less complicated, reducing tax complications, and creating a more unified Aariania. This period of time is referred to as the "1st Merging Phase."
Jacobia City Arson Attack
On March 6th, 2016, 3 US citizens immigrated into Aariania and proceeded to burn down the capitol building, The Grand Pavilion, in the [former] Capital, Jacobia City, Jacobia (now Challenger, Aldonia). The Grand Pavilion went up in flames as it was made of completely wood, and spread to the surrounding forest region. At the time, Aariania was yet to develop a Fire Department so local American civilians called upon the Charlotte Fire Department to handle the fires. At least 11 Aarianian injuries were recorded, but no direct deaths. 1 of the victims died weeks later in an American hospital due to respitory problems. The Grand Pavilion was burned down, as well as the surrounding Aarianian neighborhoods. The 3 terrorists fled back to America where local Charlotte police apprehended them.
While this theory has not been proven, the terrorists were thought to be affiliated with a former local anti-micronation terrorist group called "One Eye Open." One Eye Open was also responsible for graffiti of the Aarianian symbol on the Turkibani State House, in an attempt to frame Aariania and start a war between the allies of Aariania and Turkiban. To this date, One Eye Open has attacked Kobraivia, Aariania, Turkiban, Coppistan, Saltland, the United States, and possibly the RMO Republic as well. However, the Jacobia City Arson Attack is known as the worst of their attacks.
The Aarianian Union was the founding member of the Seaborgian Confederation, a social union between the nations of Vivannia, Aariania, Saltland, the North Saltlandic Federation, Kinusia, and Coppistan, giving them common turf of treaty they are required to follow. The Seaborgian Confederation was an attempt to recreate the Atlantian Union, but proved unsuccessful.
Aariania has refrained from contacting the Republic of Turkey with diplomatic intentions as Turkey has threatened Aariania with legal consequences, should Aariania provide misleading information. Since then, the Republic of Turkey is considered the main enemy of the Aarianian Union.
Aariania and Coppistan have always had good relations as Aariania's Grand Marquette was originally a Coppistani citizen until he left and formed Aariania. Aariania and Coppistan never had any disputes exceeding small debates. A close friend of the Grand Marquette started his own nation, Flovios, which later collapsed and was then readopted as Vivannia. Aariania is the only surviving member of the Seaborgian Confederation.

- Nagorno-Karabakh (Aariania views Nagorno-Karabakh as an Armenian puppet state, and does not recognize it's sovereignity)
- Transnistria (Aariania views Transnistria as a failed attempt to recreate the Soviet Union, and refuses to recognize Transnistria's control over their claimed territory)

The Aarianian Armed Forces consists of 4 primary branches, the Aarianian Land Force, the Aarianian Royal Navy, the Aarianian Air Force, and the Peacemakers. The Elite Rooks is sometimes considered a military branch as well. All aerial procedures are responsibility of the Aarianian Air Force, terrestrial matters of Land Force, and all marine procedures related to the Aarianian Royal Navy. With each branch having complete control over their designated subject (as opposed to the United States having Naval planes and Air Force planes), all branches of the military are often required to interact with one another for foreign assignments.
Aarianian Land Force
The Aarianian Land Force is made up of multiple armoured Jeeps, various all-terrain vehicles, and a few large mounted cannons. While being reasonably small, the Aarianian Land Force is responsible for roughly 70% of Aariania's national defence (Peacemakers were for domestic defence and law enforcement). The other 30% is taken up by 20% American Police Force, 10% the Elite Rooks, and 1% vigilantes and other private citizens. The Aarianian Land Force's approximate number is constantly changing, but some of the most loyal members have also joined the Aarianian State. For instance, former General Zak Stark ran for and was elected as the first and current Baron of Allinol.
Aarianian Land Force Youth Group
The Aarianian Land Force Youth Group is a group founded in a public middle school in Charlotte, North Carolina. When Aariania was presented during the school's 4th Annual Multicultural Fair, the leader of the school's Military Club was highly interested. The American citizen applied for Aarianian citizenship and worked with the Grand Marquette to turn the Military Club into the youth group for the Aarianian Land Force. The leader of the Military Club became General Joshua "Cleve" Clemons, who currently commands the Aarianian Land Force Youth Group.
Likely the weakest branch of the Aarianian military, the Aarianian Royal Navy (ARN) is made of a few small sailboats and rafts. The Aarianian Royal Navy has rarely been used, as boats can hardly fit down any of the creeks in Aariania. The ARN is almost entirely positioned in the United States in Lake Norman, and is only really used for occasional patrols in the United States. The only times the Aarianian Royal Navy is really used domestically is during floods, where the Navy will patrol waters and escort endangered civilians to safety.
Aarianian Air Force
The Aarianian Air Force is arguably the most impressive branch of the Aarianian military, considering Aariania as a "micronation". The Aarianian Air Force primary units consists of 8 high quality surveillance drones and multiple short-ranged, Aarianian designed, "Starscream Missiles" (which are also used as improvised fireworks). The secondary units contains 2 hand-built, full-size, functioning propeller warplanes, built by private citizens. While the warplanes have yet to be used on an offensive attack, the surveillance drones are used for occasional air patrols, and have caught multiple drug dealers, rapists, and other criminals. The Aarianian Air Force remains to be the most often used branch of the Aarianian military.
Established in April, 2017, the Peacemakers are a specialized troop used for domestic issues involving the Aarianian government, as well as acting as a national police force. The Peacemakers work with the Elite Rooks often as the Elite Rooks serves more as a intellegence agency and the Peacemakers serves more as a domestic Navy SEALs. Both function somewhat similarly to the US SWAT team. The Peacemakers carry out government-approved actions and, under specific circumstances, may use special tactics or force. However, the Royal Family has instituted very strict policies for when it is acceptable to use force. In late August, 2017, Aarianian Law Enforcement Services were merged with the Aarianian Peacemakers, making the Peacemakers a more peaceful and more negotiating force.
Aariania's geography is roughly 70% forest, and the other 30% being flatland. A decent amount of forest was cut down during the Jacobia City Arson Attack, but some has started to grow back. The dense forest provides Aariania with a lot of timber, metal, and wooden products, which were traded to Coppistan.
Aariania also has 4 major creeks. The St. Pokey Creek flows through Provinces of Glyceland, Denison, Menjasovia, and Salbazan. The St. Aoife Creek flows from the Cherokee Dry Lake and through the Provinces of Trestonia and Salbazan to combine with the St. Pokey Creek in the Province of Salbazan. As these 2 creeks combine, they form the St. Kekey Creek, which flows through south through Salbazan, Oyster Clan, Salbania, Kartarn, Kanawha, Calacoala, and Durango. Runoff from the St. Aoife Creek heads westbound as the St. Eisenhower Creek, which flows through the Provinces of Trestonia and Ogjeksia before soaking into the ground right across the Ogjeksian border in Yamasaldia. Additionally, a small runoff from the southbound St. Aoife Creek makes a long but thin creek called the "St. Garon Creek". St. Garon Creek runs northbound, opposite to it's providing creek. St. Garon Creek is thin enough to jump across at some points, and is impossible to float a boat through. The St. Garon Creek runs from the Province of Trestonia through the United States, and then back into Aariania where it runs through the Provinces of Oakansas and Resort before dispersing back into the United States. The St. Babe Creek is located within the Province of Couvyne, which is the larger runoff of the St. Garon Creek.
Salbania is home to the former US retention pond which is now the dangerous Lake Sinkhole. Oakansas hosts a small pond as well, mostly inhabited by frogs and birds, Lake Chappie is used for Naval training and military stationing. Lake Chappie is also occasionally closed off from the public. The Province of Durango hosts many beautiful scenes of the woods along the St. Kekey Creek, sparking a lot of attention from American tourists. In Salbania, Lake Sinkhole hosts a dangerous environment with quicksand, thorns, and dangerous animals. A naval base was established in Lake Sinkhole, but was later abandoned due to it's lack of use and the dangers that surrounded it. Within the Province of Topeka, Lake Morrison hosts the man-made Sonsar Island overlooking the beautiful Lake Morrison. Topeka also holds the Lagossia Nature Reservation, where human interaction is limited, allowing the local dear, birds, and other creatures to thrive along the St. Gumby Creek. The St. Gumby Creek leads through the Lagossia Nature Reservation and heads south through the rest of Topeka to create Lake Charming. Lake Kaposs also rests in Yamasaldia, remaining a mystery on it's creation.
Together, all the lakes throughout Aariania are Lake Douglass in Dixieland, Lake Krane in Batavia, Lake Holly in Glyceland, Lake Choice in North Elizabeth, Reford Abilene Resort in Menjasovia, Central Rock in Salbazan, Lake Sinkhole in Salbania, Lake Chappie in Oakansas, the Cherokee Dry Lake in Trestonia, Lake Kaposs in Yamasaldia, and Lake Charming, Lake Morrison, and Lake Shallow in Topeka.

|Islamic Republic of Aarianian Khashm Alaan||The Islamic Republic of Aarianian Khashm Alaan, or more often known as "Khashm Alaan", is an overseas territory of Aariania in the Arabian Peninsula surrounded by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The Middle Eastern Colonizer and [former] Saudi Arabian Ambassador of Aariania, Bill Chamberlain, designed the Saudi Arabian city of Khashm Alaan in the name of Aariania. Chamberlain later quit his job to avoid legal consequences with the Saudi government, as Aariania lacks a Treaty of Extradition with Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia incorrectly claims Khashm Alaan as their own territory, saying that it is a city made for them and them only. Aariania claims that the territory was established for Aariania and will stay with Aariania. Aariania has, however, granted Saudi Arabia naming-rights.||Foreign territory||January 12, 2017||Governor Bill Chamberlain|
|Aarianian Republic of Wilsonia||Wilsonia is an autonomous territory of Aariania enclosed in the cities of Nashville and Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA. Wilsonia is home to multiple Aarianian officials, such as Vice Marquette Ian Wilson and former Grand Council members, Travis Martin and Simon Martin. Vice Marquette Ian Wilson is also the current Governor of Wilsonia.||Foreign Territory||January 28, 2017||Vice Marquette Ian Wilson|
|Corning Colony||Originally claimed in mid-August, 2017, as the Corning Territory, the Corning Colony was the first successful Colony established by the Aarianian Union. Certain members of the Aarianian State had personal ties to the city of Corning, New York, USA, leading to an expedition to the city. The party discovered small field with a creek and bridge running through it, and claimed it for the Aarianian Union as the "Corning Territory." The Corning Territory almost instantly began work to be admitted as a Colony, not just an unorganized territory. On September 16, 2017, the Corning Colony had met all the requirements, and was admitted as the Corning Colony later that day.||Colony||September 16, 2017||Governor Jason Green|
|Aarianian Republic of Vivannia||The Aarianian Republic of Vivannia was once an independent nation, the Conservationalist Union of Vivannia. The Conservationalist Union of Vivannia collapsed shortly after the fall of the Seaborgian Confederation. Months later, former 1st Healer of Vivannia, Benjamin Martin, joined the Aarianian Union and eventually came to lead the Green Party of Aariania (GP). Martin was then offered the position of Governor, should they bring Vivannia back. Martin accepted the offer, and the Vivannia territory was annexed. On September 30, 2017, the territory was officially established as the Aarianian Republic of Vivannia.||Foreign Territory||September 30, 2017||Governor Benjamin Martin|
(September 21, 2016 - October 9, 2016) All the battles of the Atlantian War consisted of either large games of paintball or extreme games of Capture the Flag. The Atlantian War first broke out when Kobraivia was suspended from the Atlantian Union for attacking member nation, Raionia, and member nations quickly started picking sides. The side loyal to the Atlantian Union Constitution was named the "Amorgian Union", and was declared simply a temporary war alliance. The Amorgian Union consisted of Aariania, the RMO Republic, Winnland, Coppistan, Turkiban, Geminia, and Porzkybia. Upon the creation of the Amorgian Union, Kobraivia then began bribing some of the Atlantian Union member nations into joining them to create their own union. The SC Republic was the first to take this offer, and due to the SC Republic's strong reputation, they convinced West Resort, Bakkelvia, Omeevia, Glamoor, and Shayman to join what they called the "Solluvian Union". Venalo stayed neutral for a while until bribed by Kobraivia to join the Solluvian Union.
With the Solluvian powerhouses being West Resort, the SC Republic, and Kobraivia, West Resort (SU) was quickly targeted and taken out by the Amorgian Union. This unexpected attack caused the Solluvian Union to retaliate and have the SC Republic (SU) and Bakkelvia (SU) take out the Republic of Geminia (AU). Just days later, Aariania (AU) went rogue and invaded the Republic of Bakkelvia (SU) without approval from the Amorgian Union, which resulted in the temporary suspension of Aariania from the Amorgian Union. However, the invasion proved successful as it eliminated Bakkelvia (SU), and Aariania's punishment was vetoed by the Amorgian Union, due to Aariania's usefullness.
The Republic of Winnland (AU) was another primary Amorgian powerhouse, mostly due to it's larger size and military. Winnland (AU) used guerrilla tactics to easily take out the Kingdom of Shayman (SU), and in return the Republic of Kobraivia (SU) launched an invasion on Winnland (AU). However, Kobraivia (SU) was unable to take much land, so they resorted to mental tactics, using spies, propaganda, and spreading fake news into Winnland (AU). These tactics worked, and Winnland (AU) soon fell to civil war. Porzkybia (AU) soon surrendered to the SC Republic (SU), due to similar issues.
As the Amorgian Union suffered heavy losses, the war was turning against them. To take out the weaker links, the RMO Republic (AU) went to war with it's neighboring rival, the Republic of Omeevia (SU). As the RMO Republic (AU) invaded Omeevia (SU), Aariania, Coppistan, and Turkiban (AU) all invaded the Kingdom of Glamoor (SU), which also bordered the RMO Republic and Omeevia.
Glamoor (SU) was destroyed in the invasion. Some Coppistani (AU) troops went to aid the RMO Republic (AU) fight against Omeevia (SU), and less than an hour later, the SC Republic (SU) invaded Aariania (AU). Aariania was able to return in time to protect their land, but lost part of the Region of Zakovia (now part of the Aldonian Province). Kobraivia and the SC Republic (SU) then began forming a plan to attack Aariania (AU) again, but instead was ambushed by Aarianian and Coppistani forces, quickly destroying them, leaving only the SC Republic and Omeevia standing for Solluvia.
The RMO Republic (AU) eventually won the war with Omeevia (SU) and turned it's attention to the only remaining member of the Solluvian Union, the SC Republic. The RMO central government then began losing control, and Amorgian troops were sent to aid them. Out of pure desperation, the SC Republic used the opportunity to invade the State of Turkiban (AU) and was successful in bringing down it's government. The RMO Republic later fell to internal fighting.
When it was then only Coppistan and Aariania (AU) facing the powerful SC Republic (SU), an previously unknown nation revealed itself as "Sajistan" and attacked the SC Republic mainland along with Coppistan and Aariania. On October 9th, 2016, the SC Republic fell to internal struggles, marking the death of the Solluvian Union, and the end of the Atlantian War.
Result: Absolute victory for Amorgian Union (including Aariania). AARIANIAN VICTORY
Aarianian Civil War
(2007 - February 4, 2017) In the Aarianian Province of Orsonia (Rubikia, at the time), an opposition had been attempting to secede since 2007, before Aariania's existence. Numerous disputes in the capital Province have been going on for ages between separatist group, Kingdom of Bradley, and the Aarianian State. After 10 years of a constant bloody war, the Aarianian State lost the war and a peace treaty was signed. The Kingdom of Bradley became an independent nation from the Aarianian Union on February 4th, 2017.
Result: Negotiated surrender. Aarianian Loss. AARIANIAN DEFEAT
(November 30, 2016 - October 4, 2017) The Iron War is the main priority of the ongoing Aarianian conflicts. Aariania unofficially declared war on the Republic of Turkey on November 30, 2016 in response to a supposed threat the Aarianian State received from the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Very few physical conflicts have occurred. Since August 18, 2017, the Aarianian State began attempting to negotiate peace with the Turkish government, but lack of Turkish communication prevented doing so. Eventually, on October 4th, 2017, the war was called a stalemate by the Grand Council and Royal Family, finally ending the 10 month conflict between Aariania and Turkey.
Result: Considered "stalemate" by Grand Council. STALEMATE
(April 25, 2017 - present day) The Ghost War is the name given to the cold war between the Ku Klux Klan and the Aarianian Union. In late April, the Aarianian Union had the fear of an invasion by the Ku Klux Klan. The country went into the State of Emergency on May 6, 2017 and set up defences at all highly populated Provinces and cities in Aariania. No Klansmen were spotted. However, during this one day of State of Emergency, the entire country was more unified than ever before. The Aarianian State then realized that a common enemy is what unites the country the best, and began talks of declaring war against the KKK. After many very heavily disputed discussions on the topic, the Grand Council voted 11 - 10 in favour of creating a treaty of war. The treaty was created, and was signed by [former] Grand Council President Conner Spantis, but needed the signature of Grand Marquette Aaron Green. The Grand Marquette never signed this treaty. The Ghost War was originally named the "2nd Panther War" but was changed do to actually having no relation with the 1st Panther War. The Panther War was a month long war between the North Saltlandic Federation and the Democratic Republic of Kinusia. Aariania considered aiding the NSF, but chose to remain neutral. The NSF won the war on January 25, 2017.
(December 28, 2016 - present day) Originally called the "Carolina Cold War," the Patriot War was officially declared a cold war on December 28, 2016. The Seaborgian nations all held a fear of being tried for treason against the United States, even though none had formally declared war upon the US. A pact was formed within the Seaborgian Confederation stating that should one nation be tried for treason, all others will come to support them. This pact was ratified by the Republic of Coppistan, Vivannia, and Aariania, but is now only upheld by Aariania as both Coppistan and Vivannia are considered defunct. After many former members of the Coppistani and Vivannian government joined the Aarianian State, the Carolina Cold War was really only a "battle" between 2 nationalities; Aarianian and American." Because of the 2 patriotic nationalities, the cold war was renamed the "Patriot War." The Aarianian Union has not formally declared war upon the United States, and only fears that the US will strike first.
(February 19, 2011 - October 25, 2012) The Aarianian Empire was the original government founded on February 19, 2011. The Aarianian Empire had more enforced cultures and beliefs, and did not grant freedom of speech. The Aarianian Empire was founded on an imaginary planet in the Galaxy, Heximorial. Originally, the whole planet was founded as the Aarianian Empire but as soon as challengers rose and Aariania could not maintain control of the entire planet, Aariania broke apart into the Aarianian Empire, the Sensaverm Empire, and the Shadrill Empire. The Shadrill Empire kept a neutral stance with both empires while the Aarianian Empire and Sensaverm Empire had heated tensions. A war never did break out but a strong rivalry always kept everyone on guard.
Kingdom of Aariania
(October 25, 2012 - April 12, 2016) Founded in October, 2012, the Kingdom of Aariania was the reunified planet of Aariania which granted more rights than the Aarianian Empire. Culture was still enforced and censorship was still an issue but freedom of speech was ratified upon the Kingdom of Aariania's creation. The Kingdom of Aariania had strong support of the Aarianian public, despite the imperfect nation. The Kingdom of Aariania granted more and more rights as time went on, until the Kingdom of Aariania was changed from an imaginary country on an imaginary planet to an imaginary country on Earth, near the end of 2014. In December, 2015, the Kingdom of Aariania granted much more rights and become just Aariania until April 12th, 2016 when Aariania became the Atheist State of the Aarianian Territories.
Atheist State of the Aarianian Territories
The Aarianian territories consisted of Aariania, West Aariania, Jacobia, Cartairia, and North Aariania. The Territories of Aariania and West Aariania are now located within the territory of the modern Province of Orsonia. Jacobia stayed as Jacobia until the 1st Merging Phase in January 2017, where Jacobia was merged with many bordering Regions to make the Region of Kuljasovia (now Aldonia). Soon after the dissolution of the ASAT, North Aariania was granted independence and became the "State of Turkiban" or "Turkiban". Turkiban was a very repressed nation that had many disputes with the SC Republic, which formed later on. Turkiban quickly allied with Coppistan and Aariania and fought for the Amorgian Union during the Atlantian War. However, Turkiban suffered a devastating fate as an invasion from the SC Republic wiped out the repressed government. Cartairia was abandoned as the Atheist State broke up on May 21st, 2016.
Upon the dissolution of the ASAT, Aariania and West Aariania became the Region of Rubikia, the Territory of Jacobia became the Region of Jacobia, North Aariania became the independent State of Turkiban, and Cartairia was abandoned for the time being, but was later reestablished as the Region of Cartairia. Today, Cartairia has been merged to become part of the Region of Oyster Clan, Rubikia merged with the Region of Calacoala to become Orsonia, and Jacobia and North Aariania both eventually became the Province of Aldonia. Aariania's religious population shows to be 38% Atheist majority (August 3, 2017), most likely an effect of the Atheist State.
(July 18, 2016 - September 21, 2016) The Atlantian Union was a former micronation union started by Resort, Aariania, West Resort, SC Republic, and Winnland for economic unity, better trade, military, political, and economic aid as well to keep the 37 total micronations of Atlantia in check. As the Atlantian Union became a success, more nations such as Raionia, Glamoor, Kobraivia, Coppistan, Turkiban, and Omeevia all joined. Resort was later abandoned, leaving the Atlantian Union with only 10 members. The Atlantian Union minimized conflict, debt, and wars, until a controversial recommendation given by Vivannia about a flag revote triggered Kobraivia to destroy Raionia. Upon Raionia's collapse, the Atlantian Union was divided in 2 as the SC Republic, Glamoor, Shayman, Omeevia, West Resort, Bakkelvia, and Venalo took Kobraivia's side and Aariania, the RMO Republic, Winnland, Coppistan, Turkiban, Geminia, and Porzkybia stayed loyal to the Atlantian Union's Constitution. These were the sides of what came to be known as "The Atlantian War." After the war, Atlantia was changed from a physical union to a social union. This social union adopted the name of "Seaborgia." An original treaty was created, but after vast amounts of revisions, complications, and conflicts, the Treaty of Seaborgia was reestablished as the "Seaborgian Confederation." The Seaborgian Confederation was never able to function successfully, and collapsed before ever rising up to power.
(September 21, 2016 - September 29, 2016, September 30, 2016 - October 9, 2016) When the Atlantian War first broke out and member nations started picking a side, the side loyal to the Atlantian Union Constitution was name the "Amorgian Union", and was declared simply a temporary war alliance. The Amorgian Union consisted of Aariania, the RMO Republic, Winnland, Coppistan, Turkiban, Geminia, and Porzkybia. Geminia was quickly destroyed in a counter-attack after West Resort was destroyed in a full-on Amorgian invasion. Porzkybia was later abandoned and the Republic of Winnland fell to civil war sparked by Kobraivian loyalists.
After a short stalemate, things started looking up for Amorgia as the RMO Republic, Aariania, Coppistan, and Turkiban were still around to face the SC Republic. Then the RMO central government began losing control and eventually collapsed. As Amorgia was occupied aiding the RMO Republic, the SC Republic invaded Turkiban and successfully brought the government down. When it was then only Coppistan and Aariania facing the powerful SC Republic, an previously unknown nation revealed itself as "Sajistan" and attacked the SC Republic along with Coppistan and Aariania. The 3 nations successfully brought down the SC Republic, bringing an end to the war.
(never member) As the Atlantian War first broke out, Kobraivia was suspended from the Atlantian Union for attacking a member nation. Kobraivia then began bribing some of the member nations into joining them to create their own union. The SC Republic was the first to take this offer, and due to the SC Republic's strong reputation, they convinced West Resort, Bakkelvia, Omeevia, Glamoor, and Shayman to join what they called the "Solluvian Union". Venalo stayed neutral for a while until bribed by Kobraivia to join the Solluvian Union.
With the powerhouses being West Resort, the SC Republic, and Kobraivia, West Resort was quickly targeted and taken out by the Amorgian Union. This unexpected attack caused the Solluvian Union to retaliate and have the SC Republic and Bakkelvia take out the Republic of Geminia. Aariania soon went rogue and attacked Bakkelvia, without approval from the Amorgian Union. The attack proved successful and destroyed Bakkelvia, and Aariania's punishment was vetoed by the Amorgian Union due to Aariania's usefulness. Winnish attacks using guerilla tactics easily took out Shayman, and Kobraivia attacked Winnland in return, but was unable to take much land. Kobraivia then went to mental tactics and sent in spies and propaganda into Winnland, which quickly fell to civil war. Porzkybia soon surrendered to the SC Republic, due to similar issues.
RMO Republic then went to war with Omeevia, and Aariania, Coppistan, and Turkiban invaded Glamoor. Glamoor was destroyed in the invasion. Some Coppistani troops went to aid the RMO Republic fight against Omeevia, and less than an hour later, the SC Republic invaded Aariania. Aariania was able to return in time to protect their land, but lost part of the Region of Zakovia (now part of Aldonia). Kobraivia and the SC Republic then began forming a plan to attack Aariania, but was ambushed by Aarianian and Coppistani forces, and soon destroyed. The RMO Republic eventually won the war with Omeevia and turned it's attention to the SC Republic. Out of pure desperation, the SC Republic invaded Turkiban and was successful in destroying them. The RMO Republic later fell to internal fighting. Before the SC Republic could do any more damage, a hidden nation aided Aariania and Coppistan as they attacked the SC Republic and left them fighting for air. The unknown nation later revealed themselves as "Sajistan". On October 9th, 2016, the SC Republic fell to internal struggles, marking the death of the Solluvian Union, and the end of the Atlantian War.
(October 29, 2016 - March 29, 2017) The United Confederation of Seaborgia was a short lived confederation between the Aarianian Union of North America, the Republic of Coppistan, the Conservationalist Union of Vivannia, the Democratic Republic of Kinusia, the Kingdom of Saltland, and the North Saltlandic Federation. The Seaborgian Confederation, or "Seaborgia", was an attempt to recreate the Atlantian Union after the Atlantian War. This attempt was poorly carried out upon first being established, as all current members (Coppistan, Saltland, Aariania, and Vivannia) had a different version of a constitution. The Seaborgian Confederation failed to aid Saltland as their economy collapsed, leading to the creation of the North Saltlandic Federation and the Democratic Republic of Kinusia. The North Saltlandic Federation went to war with Kinusia (Panther War), and Kinusia ended losing the battle. By the time a constitution was agreed upon, the North Saltlandic Federation had fallen to anarchy. The Constitution proved very successful for roughly 2 months, when Aariania and Coppistan voted to leave the Confederation, due to a lack of benefits. Being upheld by Vivannia alone, the Constitution was abandoned, marking an end to the Seaborgian Confederation.
Aarianian Soccer Association
The Aarianian Soccer Association (ASA) is known to be one of Aariania's proudest and most notable features. The ASA began as a small private organization with merely a theory. When the Royal Family heard of it, they agreed to sponsor the ASA. This lead to the Championship being called the "Marquette Cup." The ASA became a semi-private organization as the creation for teams became Provincial projects. The games officially began on February 26, 2017, with 32 teams. Each team only consisted of one person, but this was quickly raised to 2. The 32 teams were divided into the Royal Alliance and the Regal Alliance. Each Alliance had 4 different Districts with 4 different teams. As the 2nd Merging Phase began around week 3 and 4, many Province-sponsored teams had trouble. Many teams were moved around, some Provinces were left without teams (Ellington) and 4 government-sponsored teams were created; Kanawha East, Yamasald South, Aldonia North, and Oakansas South. Once the playoffs began, the ASA resorted to an NFL-style bracket.
As Season 1 began, things did not begin well, many Provinces considered removing sponsorship due to lack of excietement and populairty. The ASA added a 2nd starting player and 1 backup to each team, which made things much better. The 2nd Merging Phase threw a lot of obstacles at the ASA, and fortunately the ASA was able to avoid them all by moving teams, getting new sponsors, and temporary fields in the United States.
When the playoffs began, players from teams that did qualify were temporarily added to teams in the playoffs to make it 5 starting players and 2 backup. The playoffs were pretty successful and actually brought in small crowds. In the Royal Alliance, 4th Seed Trestonia (8 - 8), the underdog of the playoffs, knocked out 1st Seed Kanawha (13 - 3) and advanced to play 2nd Seed, Calacoala (11 - 5). Calacoala beat Trestonia to advance to the Marquette Cup in Green City, Frisco. 5th Seed Judacia (10 - 6) of the Regal Alliance beat 2nd Seed Batavia (11 - 5) to play Calacoala. At the time, the Provinces of Calacoala and Rubikia were attempting their merer, but could not do so until the Calacoalan team was out of the playoffs.

Aarianian males tend to have long hair. Due to Aariania's unpredictable weather patterns, long hair serves as a warm hat in the winter and can be flicked back in forth to dry off sweat, like a fan.
A decent portion of Aarianian culture is modeled around railroads. One of Aariania's primary goals is to establish a working railroad system. A railroad system called "Aariania Rail" has been proposed within the Province of New Estonia, however, the construction phase has made little progress.
Aarianian culture is also largely developed around the forest and creeks native to Aarianian territory. It is illegal to cut down trees without approval of the Aarianian State. Aariania is very accepting and welcoming of foreign cultures. The Ministry of Culture HQ is located in Saikane, Menjasovia; formerly Saikane, Aariania L'Origine. Aariania is primarily made up of Caucasians, Arabs, and Asians. Almost all cultures are accepted across Aariania, with the exception of those opposing the law. Aarianian citizens tend to be very welcoming, relaxed, very creative, and love to be around other people and other cultures. Flags and banners are very commonly used to express associations, meetings, and locations, and are very proudly supported by the Aarianian public and the Aarianian State.
The only characters supported nationwide by the Aarianian State is former US President Dwight Eisenhower and former Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Tributes to Eisenhower have been the naming of the St. Eisenhower Creek, his portrait on proud display in both Yappy City, Orsonia and Coyopa, New Estonia. Eisenhower was a candidate for a mascot on the Aarianian currency, Nirms, and was the first mascot to be elected, being put on the N10 slip, the 2nd most commonly used Nirm slip in Aariania, placing after the N1. The term "slip" is used instead of "bill" in Aariania, to further differentiate from the United States. N1 is roughly equal to $1, but exchange rate can occasionally be unbelievably high.
