The Constitutional Republic of Columbia, formerly and mostly known as the Dan Republic, is a micronation that was planned in late 2018 and founded on 25 June 2020 by its first and current president, Daniel Lawrence Maloney, originally in protest of Donald J. Trump, who was the sitting president of the United States from 2017 to 2021.

History

Founding

The idea of the Columbia was first conceived in 2018 by the current president, Daniel Maloney, under the name "Dan Army". Maloney claims during this period of time, the Dan Army consisted of around 500 members. No records of this were ever recorded, leaving the claim unsubstantiated. After this period, Maloney would begin making plans for the foundation of the micronation. On 25 June 2020, Maloney had declared the Dan Republic independent from the United States. Later, Maloney would then declare that the Dan Republic would become a virtual micronation on Garry's Mod as stated in an apology video to the Micronational Assembly.[1] Exactly 21 days afterward, Maloney retracted these statements, the Dan Republic would reestablish its real-world claims.[2]

Handover of the Beaver Island Archipelago

Maloney proposing to Shaw the handover of the Beaver Island

On 13 March 2021, Columbia would cede the Beaver Island Archipelago to the Dominion of West Canada in hopes to exclude itself from the land claim dispute in the region with Kapreburg. Maloney stated; "I believe you would make better use of the territory" in a conversation with Connor Shaw, the Governor-General of West Canada.

Name change

On 5 April 2021, Maloney held a referendum in which he asks citizens whether or not should the name of the nation should be changed. 7 people would vote yes with none opposing the name change. A day later of 6 April, Maloney renamed the Dan Republic to the Constitutional Republic of Columbia.

Criticism & Controversy

The Republic of Columbia has come under scrutiny from numerous members of the micronational community, primarily due to it using Nerf guns within its military, now phased out of use. Columbia has also been criticized for its leader, Maloney, being unprofessional, in addition to the so-called hypocrisy of the Columbia's government; for example, Columbia has condemned forms of fascism, specifically Nazism, and then aligned itself with far-right micronations such as the State of Argentoria and the Fascist Seldavia Reich. [3] [4] Maloney himself has also worked with Seldavia and found out the address of Isaac J. White and threatened to expose White's address publicly.[5][6] As a result, Maloney was banned from using both the Microwiki website and discord server, no legal action has been taken yet against Maloney. Columbia has since publicly cut ties with Seldavia and has exited the Micronational Anti-Comintern Pact.[7] Maloney has since then made an apology towards White.

In addition, said Maloney has alleged that Columbia would manufacture operational Nerf tanks, construct a functional airport, establish and maintain a national air force and invade the Democratic Republic of Houseistan, which is located halfway across the United States, in addition to Columbia building nuclear-powered aircraft carriers. These of which are considered unrealistic by most people.

In early March 2021, Maloney released an "anthem" video on YouTube which featured a gorey pornographic image a few seconds into the video. While assuming good faith and that the account on YouTube was possibly hacked, many community members contacted him and reported it to him. Maloney would then spam "King Soy Boy Jackson I of Kapreburg" and would claim screenshots were doctored. The video has since been reported to YouTube. He then deleted the video and after reviewing it apologized for spamming "King Soy Boy Jackson I of Kapreburg" to Jackson. Following the incident, Dan has allegedly taken full responsibility for it.

Government

The government of Columbia is defined by the Constitution of the Constitutional Republic of Columbia. Originally, Maloney wanted to make the constitution more liberal and democratic but was later pointed out to have very Anocratic ideals
