The Arbores Federated Columns, simply Arbores, was a micronation in the Great Lakes region of North America. Arbores was created by Xander Mintz as a hobby micronation.

Arbores was made up of 6 columns. The Primadomus, The Campi, New Runway, Fort Trampo, Dentrovia, and Topothesia. Visible differences occur at the beginning and end of the main columns. For example, the outside separated The Primadomus and Topothesia from The Campi. Topothesia was the nation's de jure capital while the president most commonly resided in The Primadomus. Arbores does not administer the Arbores Forest, which makes it the only territory of Arbores.

Arbores' name comes from the Latin word "trees", which symbolises the Arbores Forest.


Arbores was initially planned to be named "Huron" after the nearby lake, however the name was scrapped due to Arbores not actually bordering the lake.


The Dull Period

The Dull Period is used to refer to the first 5 days of Arbores, when it was near completely inactive. The only thing related to Arbores that happened during the Dull Period is Xander Mintz informing William Brown of the foundation of Arbores.

First John Painer Conflict

The First John Painer Conflict was when John Painer, a friend of Xander Mintz, attempted to take over Arbores. With the help of Mintz's cousin, Ava Madison, Painer was unable to take over. It lasted through the evening of April 14, 2023.

Second John Painer Conflict

The day after the First John Painer Conflict on April 15, 2023, John Painer came back over and ignited another conflict against Arbores. Like the first, Ava Madison fought for Mintz's army. Arbores won the conflict, and as a result, no recorded attempts to take over Arbores have happened since.

The October Reformations

The October Reformations is the name commonly used to describe Arbores changing large things about the nation. It took place on Saturday, 21 October 2023. This included the formation of Dentrovia and The Runway as columns, updated the Arboric Emergency Warning System, and formed the subsidiary company Arboric Emergency Warning System Management, a subsidiary of the Arbores Weather Agency responsible for issuing weather alerts.

Kapanic Reformations

On 26 October 2023, Arbores was reformed to be a Kapanic theocracy, marking the end of the federated columns. While Twelvism is never forced in Kapanic Arbores, it is endorsed by the government.

Meteorology and the Arboric Emergency Warning System

4 days before Arbores was founded, a Tornado Watch was issued for all of what would become Arbores. Despite no damage occurring in Arbores' area, minor flooding did occur in The Campi. Since then, Arbores has risen concern over future outbreaks leading to the foundation of the Arboric Emergency Warning System, an alert system to notify citizens of Arbores when severe weather is forecasted.


Columnic Arbores was a benevolent dictatorship where the leader rules for their entire life, while still maintaining political and social freedoms. The only president was Xander Mintz, who would have the ability to appoint a leader to rule if he ever resigns.


Most of Arbores is on the same elevation, however The Campi has a large hill named Iofos that is commonly used as a road when cars traverse down it. Topothesia is also on Iofos, but does not encompass all of Iofos.
