Micronational Career

Misberia:

Foundation:

Archie Birch founded Mistak (Proto State to Misberia) on April 15th 2015 and is commonly accepted the beginning of the Misberian micronation. From 2015 to 2018 Archie changed the government based on when he felt like it which led to stability at times and uncertainties at times. Going from Monarch to Premier to Technocrat then back to Monarch cause plenty of issues but also allowed the nation and Archie to understand and chose the style which supports the nation best. In June of 2018, Archie met some friends who were running a micronation in New Hampshire called Timberia. During this time the idea of merging the states became a reality with a treaty called the Roosevelt Treaty was signed which allowed Mistak and Timberia to merge in November 2018. After the merging a better name was discussed and the merging of the Mistak-Timberia became Misberia.

Merging and Golden Age:

Following the formal merging of Mistak-Timberia, Archie became the Speaker of the Nation and was in charge of the community outreach and leading the nation. In December 2018 with his best friend Jack Reach, they started the creation of the Misberian Language. During this time he lead Misberia to join the Grand Micronation Alliance and became a strong figure in the alliance until its eventual collapse after many conflicts with Tony Sweigart and Ben of Imperium Germania. After this time Archie lead Misberia through growing pains of having two governments, one online and one in person which collapsed shortly after being referred to as a simulationist nation. Archie worked closely with King James of Cordonia to form the Aspen Misberian Empire (AME) during this time Archie tried working with James but eventually lead the charge of Misberian independence after realizing the AME was failing and becoming a Aspen only project. Archie also during this time was instrumental and ensuring peace became a reality for the Aenderese Republic and the Kingdom of Auvenum with the treaty of Misberia 2019. Later on in 2019 Archie would be known for hosting Misberian Awards Nights which gave awards to members of the community around Misberia. During the Summer of 2019 Archie went on a break for summer and led Misberia to the 2019 World Scout Jamboree as one of two delegates for Scouts Misberia.

Modern & Post Modern Age:

After Archie returned from his summer off, he found Misberia in disarray and went to work on fixing Misberia after the Confederation of Caloudonoum joined Misberia in July of 2019. During this time he led major overhauls of the government and was the founder of the First Imperial Council with Samuel Hoffmann and Hville Alvstad. In March of 2020 Archie stepped down from being Czar of the government after much frustrations and collapsed the nation on March 5th 2020 after many rumors and uncertainties Misberia was facing. On March 15th 2020 Archie proclaimed the Directive of Misberia and quickly went to work on gathering old friends and allies to support the creation of the state. During this time Archie became the pinnacle of the creation of Scouts Misberia formally and started work on a Scouts Misberia handbook. Currently Archie is the leader of Misberia and is working on the Misberian Language. Archie has led Misberia through the Early Summer Crisis and even took a break for a week to better himself after an incident, Archie has returned in full force making more time for the internals of Misberia and working to ensuring the nation thrives and gets active once again.

Various Micronations:

From November 2018 to February 2019, Archie lead multiple courts which solved many issues in smaller parts of the community and was known to be very giving and accepting of both sides and came to agreements which solved many issues. During this time of micronational judicial work Archie became the justice of Kingdom of Auvenum, Fifth Aenderian Republic for sometime and later became a justice for Union of Millania and New Granada. During this time as well Archie got involved in other micronations and became the Prince of Imperium Germania and became the Exchequer for the Confederation of Caloudonoum. Archie has recently joined the Uber-Essian Union and is looking to become a statesman and partake in the national government. Archie is currently seeking possible work to do inside Commonwealth of Essexia and Union of Millania and New Granada as well.

United Sovereignties:

Archie Birch lead Misberia to join the United Sovereignties in April of 2019, things remained uneventful until Archie returned to micronationalism after his summer break. Noticing things were not occurring Archie became very involved in trying to get the organization going. While trying to do this he cause the ire of the Chair of the USOV and this lead to arguments and souring of cooperation. In October 2019 after the Chair's departure as well as other founding members a new administration system was selected, Archie as well as Chloe of Republic of Gaia and Joe of Liberstein. Archie lead most of the work for the organization in the public eye on his own for some time until December of 2019 when he got frustrated and left the United Sovereignties. Following two issues regarding smearing of Archie's image by a former member and a then current member Archie worked on a bunch of work which would allow the USOV to become active and have a clear objective. Following January 2020, Misberia rejoined USOV and Archie became a Administrator again after Joe stepped down. For about a month things were going well until rumors a twitter troll who was harassing USOV for over six months had joined the USOV fingers were pointed at many people and Archie not being able to handle the stress said he was leaving and stepping down. Following discussions with the other leadership of USOV it was decided since Archie was the main force behind keeping USOV around that due to his departure it would be better to let USOV dissolve.

Grand Unified Micronational:

Archie Birch is currently the secondary national delegate for the Directive of Misberia. Archie had been very vocal on ensuring Asian-Oceanic delegations can attend Quorums and is credited to setting up and helping the Chair Thomas Bainbridge set up a rotating system which allows different times to be set so that both Eastern and Western delegations get a fair chance to attend a Quorum. Archie can be accredited to possibly being the only delegate of the GUM to be moved to four delegations in the span of two weeks. After the dissolution of United Kingdoms of Misberia and Caloudonum, Archie became a delegate for Kingdom of Hrafnarfjall and quickly moved to become the People's Republic of Orientia delegate after an issue regarding age arose. After one week Orientia contacted Archie notifying him Orientia was leaving the GUM and Archie became a delegate for Union of Millania and New Granada for two days until Directive of Misberia was recognized as the successor state of the United Kingdoms of Misberia and Caloudonum. Archie served as Statistics Department Secretary from January 11th 2020 to July 1st 2020.

Community Projects:

Archie has been known to try to work on bettering the community in the sectors of development and environmental standards and recently community building in the New England region in which he resides in. Archie came up with the idea for a Environmental Accord akin to the Paris Accords of 2015. In September 2019 Archie and two other micronational leaders created the 2019 CDM Accords which is a mainly Twitter Sphere Environmental Accord but anyone is able to confirm to try to live by the ideas and goals placed in the document. In late 2019 Archie started working on making a developmental program which can help new micronations get settled and founded properly with support, after United Sovereignties dissolved Archie brought his idea to the House of Mithras and is currently awaiting to see if it goes anywhere and is looking to possibly bring it to the Grand Unified Micronational as a possible project. As of Spring 2019 Archie and Akien started working on and founded the New England Sector as a way for New England micronations a place to work together and learn from one another.

Microfurs:

Archie has recently taken it upon himself to work with and find other furry micronationalists and work to create a subcommunity called "Microfurs". His hope is for this community to be open to all and for furries in the micronationalist world to come together and share their other hobbies and likes in a judgement free zone.
