Matachewan was formed on November 14th, 2018. By the former King of Matachewan Brandon Mierzwa.
The History of the Commonwealth goes back to the founding of the Kingdom of Matachewan or the Independent City of Matachewan. Now the Commonwealth of Matachewan was formed on Wednesday, November 14, 2018, by former King and President Brandon Mierzwa of the Kingdom of Matachewan/Republic of Matachewan. After the independence of the new state, Brandon failed to gain recognition by almost every micronation except for The Usla Empire. After the Commonwealth's Independence the Republic of Matachewan started to become a failed state and it was starting to become clear that Owen's leadership was becoming more questionable and Owen was even considering leaving office. Right when Brandon heard the news Commonwealth soldiers have already opened fire on Republican Troops. In 1 hour the Republic surrendered and the Commonwealth, Usla, and Louisiana Partitioned it.
Partitions of the Republic of Matachewan
On November 21, 2018, the Commonwealth of Matachewan was drawing up plans to invade the Republic and take back all of Matachewan. Brandon knew very well that he stood no chance against the Republican army so he called up some allies. Like the Usla Empire and the Free State of Louisiana. In the end, Brandon really didn't need them because the Republic was nearing collapse. Owen was going to give his power to the Vice President of Matachewan.
The Government of Matachewan is Nationalist.

The Commonwealth's main industry is its clay mining and small-scale mercury mining. When we were mining for mercury our miners came across a vein of silver so small-scale silver mining may become a common practice.
The Commonwealth also produces weapons. The weapons made are for small game hunting but also for the military. Matachewan produces 1 artillery gun every 4 months, 5 muskets in 5 weeks and 10 pounds of ammunition every 2 weeks. Many of these weapons are stored away and outdated weapons are used as parts for new ones. (Example) Matachewan has converted 10 muskets into an Anti-Tank Gun. Our workshops also produce clothing for military and civilian clothing.
The Matachewanian Zloty stands at 5 Zloty to $0.20 USD and 5 Zloty to $1 CAD.
After the partitions of the Republic, many of the previously isolated people now have room to expand. The Canadian Pacific Railways own the rails on a macronational point of view but in Matachewan the rails are owned by the M.S.R. the Matachewan State Railways. Matachewan now has a bigger mining industry with news if new mines becoming operational. Most of the mines are owned by the Timmins and Kirkland mining companies but Matachewan also has a small scale clay and silver mining industry called the Matachewan Mining Company. Matachewan also produces small homemade automobiles and parts. Andrew Mierzwa Company is the producer of these cars and as of right now Andrew is working on the Mierzwa Model A a prototype still in development we hope with proper investment in our industry we could produce these cars every 1 month. 1 The month of production = 3 Automobiles.
Nature and Wildlife
The terrain of Matachewan is mostly made of Coniferous Forests and small mountains. The West Montreal River runs through the west of the country and the Montreal River runs through the capital and the south parts of the country. During the winters the rivers freeze and many of the people that live along the river go out and fish. This freezing does spark problems such as the main waterways are blocked so trade with the Natives stops till spring. Beaver trapping is harder because the beavers lodges are covered in ice and snow and during the spring when the ice melts the water level rises so many houses get flooded out. This hasn't stopped people from trying to build barriers and reservoirs. Many people would think how does the trade end in the winter? Well, there is no rails that run through our territory anymore and the major HWY always freezes over. Many people need to hunt or fish during the winter if they don't they will go hungry because of food shortages in the General Store. Now people have gotten used to this style of living so it's not really an issue. The only people who find it hard to live are the newcomers.
