The Colony of Princetin was a Baustralian colony established on 3 December 2020 by Aidan McGrath. It was formed with the intent of becoming a dominion under the premiership of William Autry and Lord Governorship of Aidan McGrath, who was to be re-instated as Baron of Davidson. It was given to Paloma on 1 January 2021.

History

Foundation

In June 2020, McGrath pondered the idea of creating a dominion in the Baustralian Empire, seperate from the colonies of the same. It would be a unicameral parliamentary constitutional monarchy with McGrath as Governor-General, and a government chaired by a Prime Minister. It would have a legislature seperate from the Parliament of Baustralia, different from the colonies which are subordinate to Baustralia.

In December that year, McGrath decided to create the dominion, starting as a colony until a government can be formed under the premiership of William Autry, a nobleman in Kapreburg. This was accepted by the Baustralian crown, and was officialized with the enactment of the Princetin Act and the National Symbols (Princetin) Act.

Princetin conflict

On 16 December 2020, after discussing the Barony of Davidson, McGrath said that a "regime change [in Princetin] may be carried out by my government, with or without my permission." King John I responded that annexation is an Act of War, and will be considered a hostile action.

On 17 December, Martel Sims, the Vice President of the Free Socialist State of Paloma, decided to announce his intent to annex the territory for the state. This annexation has yet to be signed off by president Aidan McGrath, and diplomatic talks have commenced to avoid a conflict.
