While on an excursion through Canadian territory, HIM Tsar Kuri I claimed an area of 13.5 square metres of land containing an ancient willow tree and a small bench. However, a friend of HIM the Tsar who was traveling with him, namely Cyril I, then Emperor of the Unnamed Empire, disputed the new krai, claiming that the bench was Unnamed territory. This sparked a small conflict called The Bench War. After a few scuffles and fights, the Imperial Army declared peace and in return gave The Unnamed Empire 5/6ths of the bench (about 1 square metre), while Gishabrun got to keep the rest. The Krai was declared a Park (which means tourists may visit it regularily) and the Ancient Willow was declared a National Monument. Eight days later, the Empire captured the entire Bench, and therefore conquering the Unnamed Empire (since they had no other land claims), and HIM Tsar Kuri I claimed the Unnamed throne. The peace treaty (the "Bench War Treaty") was signed on the 17th of September, 2010, ending the Bench War and declaring the house (which was claimed later) of Emperor Cyril I to be an autonomous region of Gishabrun, making Cyril I its Emperor, and renaming it the Autonomous Empire of Macragge.
