The Republic of Apachiland, more commonly known as Apachiland, is a micronation located in the South of Warwickshire, claiming a small patch of grass in the settlement of Lower Quinton, but with a ceremonial claim over a stretch of land that goes from Meon Vale to Ettington and South to Tredington and an exclave of the market town of Shipston upon Stour

The Republic of Apachiland is a Unitary Unicameral Parliamentary Republic that holds a President and Vice President as the heads of government and of state. It was originally a Monarchy under the two kings Apache I and Cooper I, with a time of being a diarchy when both kings held control

Apachiland is a member of the Reformed Intermicronational Confederation with the President of Apachiland holding a post as a member of the Committee of the Defence Forces. Apachiland also founded the Micronational Congressional Union in 2020 which it holds permanent membership on the MCU Council due to its founding status

Etymology

Apachiland derives from a discussion between the original founders about Native Americans, originally called Apachistan the name was reworked to Apachiland a few days after the founding of the nation to better reflect the culture of the nation

History

Founding

Founded on April 4th 2017, Apachiland laid claim to a small area of grass near to the house of one of the founders who would become King Apache I

The first election was held on April 8th 2017 with Jack Cooper being elected as the President of the then Kingdom of Apachiland in a landslide victory with a huge majority of 84.3 percent of the nation voting for him.

Apachan Civil War

On Boxing Day (26 December) 2017 the King of Apachiland undertook a Monarchist Coup d'état and took over the Apachiland Government. The then President Cooper responded by sending a diplomatic request to forfeit his claim as the leader of Apachiland. The King refused and declared war on the now called Free Apachiland. On the 27/12/17 the King took control over the mainland. On 01/01/18 the Loyalist Army started a 3-day siege on the capital leading to the Capture of the Capital and eventually lead to the King's surrender on the fifth of January 2018. The war was fought with airsoft guns over the course of the civil war

The civil war ended with the Apachan Treaty on the eighth of January, 2018 the President, King Apache I, Chief of Army and MP's met in the Apachan House of Commons to discuss the Peace Treaty at the end of the Apachan Civil War. It was ruled that the King Apache I shall be stripped of all power and be made a figurehead and that King Apache I will not be able to take Government roles unless he abdicated.

The treaty ruled that the formation of an Absolute Monarchy was against the wishes of the Apachan People and that the King would have to denounce any notion of the formation of that institution.

Abdication of the King and The Restructuring Period

On the afternoon of May 10th 2020 King Apache I announced his abdication of the throne, this was extremely unexpected and prompted a crisis that ended on the 20th May 2020. The King severed all ties to the Kingdom leaving the crisis to be dealt with by the President and Chancellor. With no clear solution in sight the President and Chancellor both agreed a referendum should be held to determine whether the Kingdom of Apachiland should continue to sport a Monarchy

On the 12th of May 2020 President Cooper and Vice President Dunn began the process of restructuring the Apachan Parliament during the crisis. The restructuring was completed on the 15th May 2020.

Referendum Results

On the 13th May 2020 the results of the referendum were announced with 57.1% of the population voting in favour of the Republic.

After a period of around two weeks the constitution was rewrote to the standards of the modern day republic and was ratified by parliament on the 21st May 2020.
