Calcont actually started as the Connorlawn Empire on February 13, 2015. On this day, two guys named Caleb and Connor founded a swamp. The swamp was wooded with thick grasses nearby and ice was there too. Both of them fell in the thin icy cover blanketing the waters. They both discussed many plans there and at the Luray Church of the Brethern. The capital then was going to be South Connorlawn, which was going to be near the swamp. The plans stated that there would be grain farms, small vegetable gardens, boating, log cabins, and the ski resort trans thing. Also, Caleb picked up some crayons: red, pink, green, and brown. Originally, green represents the agriculture and nature of the country. The pink stood for manliness, since the country had been established on that survivalist mood, especially for cooler regions of the world. Red, to be honest, did not had much of a meaning. However, now, the King founded out that the green and pink represent Ukraine and Poland respectively. Those two countries are the main ethnicites of the King of Calcont.
North Connor State
After a while, the Connorish forces went to a new area called North Connor State. This area has two creeks, a chestnut tree, a house, a big building, and nice woods. The Connorish people liked using fire and local materials to build settlements. The first Settlement was called Water Town, made around June 2015. The settlement was built in a creek, thus being washed away. Then, a new settlement called the Secret Corner was made. It had a tipi, fish farms, and even a man-made island. There was a deep pool, sheer rocky cliffs, and little vegetation. Caleb and Connor jumped off a stone/concrete bridge for fun one time. The big building was proclaimed as the town hall too. In this building, there was alcohol, couches, an old vehicle, and a TV. Near this building, King Caleb and his Assistant Leader ate crawfish on some benches near a tree. On the contrary, Caleb did not like the taste of crawfish. He thought there was dung in it. Also, they used RC cars and drove them around. They thought it would be good and cheap to carry goods around with them. The plan was to tape cardboard boxes near the RC cars.
1st Connorish Civil War and Disputes
Then, on January 15, 2016, the King had a birthday. Connor then came over to the party, hanging out with Caleb. After that, both went to the North Connor State for their meeting. Connor had received a plant growing kit which retained heat. There was carrots, tomatoes, and the typical gardening crops. As well, they stayed up basically all night except for a few hours. Then, the next day, there was a dispute. After seriously fighting with Nerf guns, Caleb was taken home. It seems now where the nation no longer controlled the territory. On December 20, 2016, new negotiations went to create a new name for the entity, which ended up being towards Calcont. During the negotiations, Caleb showed a map of new territories. After drinking some fizzy grape juice, they agreed to rename the country to Calcont. Calcont means Caleb, Connor, and JT. This did not work however.
The "Fall" and Rise
Then, on September 26, 2017, the King's nana passed away. The King of Calcont was confused and devastated of the news. However, this also means the Southern Woods State would technically be annexed into direct Federal rule. On October 7, 2017, Caleb Lowman wrote the Constitution of Calcont. Also, he proclaimed that metric system is the new measurement system, and claimed that there were only 2 claims Calcont may have full control over: the 100 Sands and King's Bedroom. The 100 Sands is a 100 square meter plot with wild cherries and slightly sandy soil due to annual seasonal runoffs. The King's Bedroom is where the King of Calcont researches, thinks, sleeps, lives, and so on. It is 13 square meters. On October 13, 2017, many things happened. The King finally decided to go back into the Western Woods after a long summer. King Caleb the 1st raked the land, exposing new ground. He wants to create farms for fun and production purposes. Also, he removed the two 100% Calcont areas because they were uneeded. On Octoer 19, 2017, Caleb Lowman collected around 24 walnuts. He didn't really know where these came from, but it was good to sell the King thought. On the next day, King Caleb the 1st admitted 3 people, his dad, sister, and mom. Also, the King of Calcont has declared Calcontian as a second official language of Calcont on October 14, 2017 at 4:24-27 PM. On October 28, 2017, King Caleb the 1st decides that wheatgrass may be one of the main crops, not winter wheat. This is because it can grow for 10 days at max for harvest and compact. Winter wheat, on the other hand, takes from September/October to May. On the next day, at 1:06 PM, Caleb Lowman decided to reject the other 3, not being true Calcontians. He argues this since the more American ones cannot be Calcontian. He also proclaimed the Pine Lake Territory, one of the possible places where the Calcontian nation may be relocated. The acreage in which they might control is 41.3 acres. On October 30, 2017, at 3:53 PM, he declares the International Village Appreciation Day. This is to remind people of the lesser known towns and villages not only surrounding Calcont, but all over the world. The localities hold unique culture and traditions in some areas, according to him. On November 14, 2017, Caleb Lowman called and did an invasion of the Western and Northwest Woods. It lasted from 5:50-6:19 PM, and gave him a psychological boost of happiness being there. The woods and cool air was enough to feel like what Calcont is. There might now be a chance sometime for the traditional industries to thrive, especially the wood. The wood was coming from weak and not as desirable trees, and will be used for fuel, building, and more.
First Williamsburg Explorations
From October 20-22,the King of Calcont announced to do an exploration of a marsh and forest near Williamsburg. For this to happen, they had to use the KOA camp nearby. On his ventures, he saw steep hills, curly holly bushes, and a generally stereotyped marsh. People always say that marshes are stinky and useless, and he agrees. The King suggests that atleast some of the flat land be converted over, based on what he saw. However, according to Caleb, most people on Earth refuse the truth atleast some of the time. At around 1:10 PM on October 21, 2017, Caleb looked at an area he named the West Marsh Valley. This valley has short grasses, wet ground, and a creek nearby. The creek was then named Sandy Creek, due to the noticeable amount of sand along it. The creek was also orange since there was algae or clay. The area could also be known as New Baltica, but the King of Calcont preferred the first name.
"The Oregon Trail" Debate
Also, the entire Royal Family may move to New Kent County from Luray in 2018. This is due to the poor quality of life around Page County. Even where they are located, Luray, it's still bad. Although New Kent County has not much eateries or shopping, Williamsburg is not too far away. In New Kent County, there are many beautiful new houses. However, King Caleb the 1st does like Page County too as a "valley farming area". New Kent County is also rural, with around 20,300 people in it. With the plan, the Kingdom of Calcont could have its own territory. One of those might be 14 acres of woods near Lanexa. The next day, the King's mother rejected the New Kent area due to isolation. Thus, Caleb was baffled and confused by this. He knew there was property somewhere in James City County, but it was just land. Also, he did some clearing and plowing. There is to be suggested to grow winter wheat from October to May, then corn the rest. The strategy would be to cultivate at least two crops annually. Caleb liked winter wheat due to proteins, planting times, and it being drought-tolerant. The King made a stone wall around one of the gardens where farming would take place. However, what seems to be the reservation lands are mainly in the Western Woods. The land is a bit rocky, but not all.
The Central State has hills, forests, and trenches. Trees in the Central State of Calcont include: dogwood, white pine, wild cherry, and lots more. Limestone, clay, timber, and arable land are the natural resources. Sometimes, a temporary body of water goes through the gully. On May 2, 2017, the King of Calcont discovered a lake in the middle of a huge farm area. Calcont has 6 regions: Central, Western Woods, White Pine, Buffalo, Beaver Lake, Northwoods, and Maarmeerland. Western Woods is pretty much self-explanatory, but a gradual hill area, going downward to east. Beaver Lake was a separate geographic region until Spring/Summer 2017. It had a depression, thus the lake term. Buffalo was a historical region, not having too much difference from the Central and Western Woods region. Central has more sophisticated landscaping and a patio. Northwoods is a land with many low-quality trees, some are cedar. Maarmeerland is the biggest region, having acres of hay fields and forests. There is also cedar and 3 lakes in this region. Sometimes, Maarmeerland is known as the "Calcontian Amazon" and "Western Frontier".
The people of Calcont are more diverse politically. Caleb Lowman, the leader of Calcont, is strongly right wing while most are sort of left. The ethnicities are: Sorbian, Polish, Jewish, and Ukrainian. It’s national colors are red, pink, and green. Foods in Calcont are: cassava, potatoes, strawberry ice cream, challah, apples, and much more. The national animal is the bear, which is the president’s spirit animal. Some Russian characteristics are: dressing nice, having insanely big plans, survivalist culture, and gender separation. The male and female have separate roles. Calcont has a survival culture where chopping down trees, fishing, hunting, and other things are seen as part of Calcontian life. There is also a lifestyle of healthy eating. Sugary drinks and foods are avoided and calories are to be kept at 2,000. It’s economic decisions are based on what resources naturally occur. When it comes to land, you can't buy or sell it, you squat on the land for 330 days of the first year then do it for all years you intent to stay. You cannot leave the land for more than 30 days. There is also the Ritsaqe, a blini with cassava. Cassava is a big thing in Calcont, even though it cant be grown where the country is located unless it is indoors or it will die of frostbite. Making fires, especially to clear land, is also a cultural norm in the nation. This is since it has considerable Slavic influence as Slavs did this hundreds of years ago. Calcont is also actually the Switzerland of America for several reasons. One, Calcont hates wars and any violent conflict, but loves to defend itself just in case. Another reason is that both are very hilly. Also, the King of Calcont may be partially Swiss, which totally confirms this comparison. If you have only pure Calcontian people, the IQ is between 122 and 150. Therefore, Calcont is the smartest nation in the entire world, on average. Also, the King of Calcont has kept gum wrappers since if you fold the wrapper and get the two ends onto the two ends of a battery, it makes a fire. Also, camping and "squatting" is also an integral part of the culture.

The Calcontian government is an absolute monarchy, and has a king. The president of Calcont is currently Caleb Lowman. The role of the king in Calcont is to make laws and enforce them. However, King Caleb Lowman has said that monarchism is a good way to go. The future of Calcont is to create a truly free utopia for Americans to truly experience their country. This is because America has corrupt politicians that barely serve the people. Personal income taxes in Calcont are 0.4%, collected every month. Also, if you commit any offenses on Calcontian territory, you have to pay $800. Goods made in China have a 10% tariff on them.
Calcontian economy currently relies only on remittance monies from working in the US. The currency is the United States Dollar. The total net reserves of money for Calcont government is around $1,050.44. The Calcontian population invests in many stocks, namely Ford, Disney, Harley-Davidson, and McDonald's.
