On 28 August, joint PVB and UDROR won a decisive victory over Empire claims of Rat Island at the Battle of Rat Island, leading to a second success for the Commonwealth. The Commonwealth was able to gain a third success with the Battle of the Point at the Commonwealth Joint Army Forward Operations Base in the Commonwealth Defense Region, however a day later the Commonwealth watched as the Empire was able to lay claim to the entirety of Philosostan as it was granted by the Governor General who later abdicated and allowed for the Emperor of Him to become Grand Duke of Philosostan.

On 7 September 2022, the final draft of the Philosostan Convention were completed and were presented to the Sixth Session of the General Assembly of the Tauranga Commonwealth of Micronations.

On 21 September 2022 the Department of National Defense of the Arstotzkan Union announced that anyone considered a resident or immigrant would be immediately conscripted into the People's Armed Forces of the Arstotzkan Union raising the number of troops enlisted from 25 to 250. This also expanded the size of the JARDAB to 263.

The Fall of Philosostan was a short event that semi-began on 22 August 2022 and officially on 25 August 2022. It began following the failure of Commonwealth Forces to successfully secure Philosostan and beginning the stalemate between Commonwealth Forces and the Empire during the War. During the meeting of the Fifth Session of the General Assembly of the TCM, the main priority of Commonwealth Forces became the setting up of the Commonwealth Defense Region to help siege Philosostan's Empire Forces and forces them into surrender to the Commonwealth. On 1 September 2022, the Governor General, the head of the Joint-Controlled Regional Authority of the Empire of Him and New Zealand, allowed the Empire to claim absolute sovereignty over Philosostan and remove any chance of Commonwealth control over the region. Following the Battle of the Point, the Commonwealth did expect Empire forces to slowly degrade over Philosostan. On 5 September 2022, Secretary General of the TCM, Ethan Brinkman, announced:

The Empire's capture of Philosostan marks the fall of the once great region. Philosostan has fallen. It shall be the duty of this great Commonwealth, to gain it back for our allied forces.

Operation: Supremacy: Cancelled.

Operation: Supremacy was an awaiting military operation to retake the Philosostan Territory and allow for complete Commonwealth Domination over the claimed Commonwealth Defense Region.

Much of the Operation was top secret and is only known about between the main members of the JARDAB.

The battle was a victory for Grayson Country but it is contested by many at the event with some who say it was indecisive, with neither winning. Ultimately the Secretary General stepped in and called for an end otherwise both nations would be muted in the General Assembly indefinitely.

Operation: Overlord: 27 September 2022 - 26 October 2022

Operation: Overlord is an awaiting military operation to be a stronger counter-offensive for the defense of the Commonwealth Defense Region. It is to take the place of Operation: Supremacy. The name, Overlord is in reference to the landings on the beaches of Normandy, France on 6 June 1944. Although the battle and operation is not expect to be as large as it, the Tauranga Commonwealth of Micronations wanted it to have a good name, similar to the reason for Operation: Supremacy.
