Cermondy as it is currently known, was reformed as an empire on October 13, 2011. The empire spreads throughout the Carolinas in the Eastern United States.

Etymology (Étymologie)

The name comes from the English word "certainty," (pertaining to one certain leader). The other part comes from the region in France called Normandy, which is important because of certain Francophone rooting in the nation.

History (L'histoire)

Cermondy was founded by the leader who goes by "Midnight." Midnight thought of a different type of government, in which, one could rule without absolute monarchy, still hold your role for life, and most likely not be overthrown by your people. And so, Midnight got together with a few other friends, keeping the number low, and creating Cermondy.

First Dictator (Premier Dictateur)

The first and only elections in Cermondy were held on September 2, 2011. The candidates were Midnight, the inventor of Cermondy's governmental system, and a friend called "Dawn." Midnight promised to put in to action new health and energy plans to get the nation on its feet, diplomatic embargoes and treaties with other nations, and also to push for territorial expansion. Dawn pushed for a better economy and a new age of improvement in science. Midnight won by a unanimous vote on the first day, mostly because of his previous micronational experience. He assumed his new role and began work quickly.

A Cultural Identity

Cermondy began a major cultural change during the end of September/early October 2011. The nation experienced a boost in the popularity of Techno and Trance music. The nation became full of the music, which spread south from Charlottestown to the capital. The nation soon began listening to Techno on a major basis. This was the beginning of a new cultural identity for Cermondians. They became known in-country as "Countryside Ravers," because of the fact that most of the cities within the nation were technically in rural areas. This was used to the advantage of the ravers in the nation, as they blared Trance and Techno, without foreign complaints.

Transition to Empire

On October 13, 2011, the former dictatorship transformed into a new empire. "Midnight" became Emperor Ronald I, the emperor going by his given middle name. The nation decided that this was needed to stabilize the nation and its new expansion in both land and population. Half of the nation joined the new Imperial Army. This dramatic rise in recruits allowed for the idea of both military and domestic industrialization took hold. Weapons were imported from the United States for the army, and at home clothing manufacturing took hold as the first modern industry in the nation.
