The Democratic Republic of Seybold scores a 4.00 on the Matthew's Democracy System of classification, as of 18 October 2018.

Etymology

The area that the Democratic Republic of Seybold is located near is known as the Larger Seybold Area, Florida.

History

Tamcoopese Era

Sometime during 2017, the area that currently is the Democratic Republic of Seybold joined the Republic of Tamcoop with the rest of the Province of Jasooper. Democratic Republic of Seybold was originally a part-time home to the former Vice President Cooper Norfolk, who eventually went on to found the Democratic Republic of Seybold, and the town of Doubledin. But peace only lasted for a while, as the Tamcoopese Provincial System, a system on the Tamcoop Government Private Computer that keeps the Provinces under control of Tamcoop was hacked into by Anti- Tamcoopese Citizen Ryan Funk. This meant that all provinces of the Republic of Tamcoop, excluding the provinces in the mainland and the Province of Fort Cusin due to the fact that they were on another computer, were ceded back to the United States.

Jasoopese Era

In all of the Chaos, then Vice President Cooper Norfolk resigned his position and went on to found the Democratic Kingdom of Jasooper on 23rd April 2018, in which Democratic Republic of Seybold is located in. The Town name stayed the same but was home to Cooper Norfolk, King of Jasooper at the time, and Corrupt Politician Max White, who was later banned from Jasooper.

Springfield Era

The Federal District of Springfield was a part of the Republic of Iustus, joining 27th March 2018. It was at first just the bottom part of Democratic Republic of Seybold, but it was expanded to the upper part and the surrounded lands known as the town of Rugtopia at that point. The Federal District of Springfield sadly ended due to unknown reasons.

Founding

On 8 September 2018, now President Cooper Norfolk finished the Constitution of the Democratic Republic of Seybold by signing it in New Springfield, the Capital of the Democratic Republic of Seybold. Cooper Norfolk then wrote up the short Seyboldish Declaration of Independence and signed it in the same city. He mailed the Seyboldish Declaration of Independence to the United States of America Capital Building at around 9 A.M. UTC-5.

Voting Box used in the 2018 High Election

First Presidential Election

On 16 September 2018, the 2018 High Election, in which the President is elected, occurred. The Debate happened in the Republic of Tamcoop, 2018, and 10 A.M. due to timing issues. Now President Cooper Norfolk gave a 7 minute-long statement on 10 common questions that have been asked about him, such as what he plans to due to strengthen Marijuana laws and how he will help the Environment of the Democratic Republic of Seybold. Soon after the debate, the citizens of the Democratic Republic of Seybold, which was only 1 at the time, voted. The voting session lasted for 57 minutes, until 11 A.M. when the results came out. There was 100% voter turnout and 100% of the votes went to President Cooper Norfolk. He was sworn in as President at 5:34 P.M. on the same day.

President Cooper Norfolk giving an Inaugural Speech

Cooper Norfolk’s First Week of Presidency

On 16 September, 2018, President Cooper Norfolk was sworn in as President of the Democratic Republic of Seybold. The days of 17 September, 2018 through 23 September, 2018 were his first week of Presidency. The first thing that he did was create a national digital newspaper called the Seybold Today. He did this because the quote, “wanted to help the citizens of Seybold and other micronationalists be informed of the activities in the Democratic Republic of Seybold”. He also stated that quote, “The Newspaper is not controlled by the government in any way or form, and we shall make sure it is not even influenced by the government. We will not be biased towards any person or political party, as we want to tell just the truth”. On the same day, he created the Seybold Postal Service, or just SPS. At the time he founded SPS, there were no Delivery Vehicles or a physical Post Office. He created the Department of Immigration and the Department of Construction along with the SPS. On 21st September 2018, President Cooper Norfolk created the Seybold National Anthem called Seybold Almighty. It had no instruments and is only sang. On the same day, President Cooper Norfolk enacted an executive order making the official language of the Democratic Republic of Seybold English and the official religion of Atheism. On 22nd September 2018, President Cooper Norfolk created the designs of the Seyboldish Florin, the currency of the Democratic Republic of Seybold. He did not print them yet, since at that point there was no bank, Department of Reserve, or a Department of Engraving and Printing.

Reserve Founded

On 17 October 2018, New Woodlelands Bowler Jason Keuorac thought that the Democratic Republic of Seybold needed a military-like organization. He asked President Cooper Norfolk what he thought about a Military. President Norfolk denied this, as he thought Seybold should not have a full-time military, but, he did allow a Reserve to be founded. President Norfolk said he approved the Reserve was because we won’t always be in a war or a battle, since they are trying to keep things peaceful, but he thinks a Reserve could be useful eventually. Reserve Commander (R.C.) Jason Keourac was excited to be approved in some way. He was officially appointed as the leader of the Seybold Reserve (SR) by President Norfolk. Cooper President Norfolk also created a logo for the Seybold Reserve. It is a tank spewing fire with a Seyboldish Flag on the side of the tank. Jason Keourac approved the Seybold Reserve logo, saying that it was nice and that President Norfolk had put in a good effort. R.C. Jason Keourac was the first to join the Seybold Reserve, who was then followed by President Cooper Norfolk.

First Independent Agency Established

On 3 November, 2018, President Cooper Norfolk had the idea of a Weather Service for Seybold. Cooper Norfolk did not want this service to be controlled by the Government. So, he created the first ever Independent Agency in the Democratic Republic of Seybold, the Seybold Weather Service, also known as the SWS. The Seybold Weather Service is now an Independent Agency in Seybold that is dedicated to giving the citizens of Seybold the daily weather. The Seybold Weather Service now tracks the current temperature, temperature high, temperature low, current humidity, humidity high, humidity low, chance of rain, and description of the sky through an advanced, at least micronationally advanced, weather forecasting device that was used in the Springfield Micronational Period called the Acurite02 Weather Forecaster. The weather forecasting device is a black, small, thin box that displays the information of the current weather in the area through tiny vents on the back of the box. The Seybold Weather Service is located in Woodlelands City, the Province of New Woodlelands near the American-Seyboldish border. It is very small, only taking up 0.1741932 square meters in area. The Seybold Weather Service headquarters, where their weather forecasting station is, has a sign that has the logo of the Seybold Weather Service on it and a sign attached to a snow globe that says the hours of the building. Monday-Friday, the Weather Station is open at 5:30 A.M. UTC-5 to 9 P.M. UTC-5 and on Saturday and Sunday it is open 5 A.M. UTC-5 to 10 P.M. UTC-5. The building permit that was used to build the weather station was accepted by the head of the Seybold Department of Construction Iyan Seeker at 10:55 A.M. UTC-5. The Seybold Weather Service will officially start tracking weather on 11 November 2018 through the Seybold Today Newspaper.

First Tourist Attraction Built

On 3 November 2018, the Seybold Department of Tourism officially created the first ever Tourist attraction of the Democratic Republic of Seybold. They first had to submit a building permit to the Seybold Department of Construction. The form was submitted to the Head of the Seybold Department of Construction Iyan Seeker at 8:05 A.M. UTC-5 and was accepted by him at 10:55 A.M. UTC-5. The Seybold Department of Tourism is only using an elevated plot of land that is just 0.30193488 square. The tourist attraction is located in the Peninsula of Woodlelands City, unofficially known as the Woodlelands Peninsula. The tourist attraction contains a globe that has the micronations that Seybold recognizes on it. This tourist attraction is called the “Seybold World Map”. The globe was given to President Cooper Norfolk as a gift a couple of years ago. He gave the globe to the Seybold Department of Tourism to build this tourist attraction in the Province of New Woodlelands. The first step was to move the globe from the Federal District of New Springfield to New Woodlelands, which was quite as easy, as it only took about thirty seconds to get to the spot where the tourist attraction now is located. The second step was to make a sign for the tourist attraction. The Seybold Department of Tourism decided to use paper for the sign. The sign says quote, ”WELCOME TO THE SEYBOLD WORLD MAP, THE WAY SEYBOLD VIEWS THE WORLD. HERE, YOU MAY LOOK AT AND TOUCH THIS GLOBE TO SEE HOW SEYBOLD SEES THE WORLD. SEYBOLD DEPARTMENT OF TOURISM. Paid for and maintained by the Seybold Department of Tourism“. Once the sign was hung up, the Department of Tourism officially opened the tourist attraction to the public.

Congressional Districts Created

On 4 November, 2018, the majority party, defined by the number of members that have officially joined the party, of each territory in the Democratic Republic of Seybold created a map of congressional districts based off the population of the territory. The congressional districts of Seybold will elect a citizen every two years as their representative in the Seyboldish National Assembly. The Majority Party of the Province of New Woodlelands is the Independent Party of Seybold, in which there are two members. Since there are 4 citizens of the |Province of New Woodlelands, there will be two congressional districts, as in each district, there is a three citizen maximum. District One of the Province of New Woodlelands is the majority of the Province excluding the unofficially named Woodlelands City Peninsula, which makes up District two. It is very small as only one citizen lives there. In the Federal District of New Springfield, a problem arose with choosing which political party would create a map of congressional districts, since the Federal District of New Springfield has no majority political party. President Cooper Norfolk was given the opportunity to create the map of congressional since he is the current President of Seybold and he was the first ever citizen of the Federal District of New Springfield. Since there are only three citizens of the Federal District of New Springfield, there was only one district created, At-Large District 1.

First Residential Property, Roads, and Addresses Made

On 13 November 2018, the Seybold Department of Construction accepted a building permit and a blueprint that was being stored by the Seybold Department of Housing and Addressing. The blueprint was for the first residential building of the Democratic Republic of Seybold. The residential building is a small, elevated house in New Springfield, the Federal District of New Springfield. The residential land is officially owned by President Cooper Norfolk, in which he made his house in. The residential property is just an apartment style building that takes up almost half of the top bunk bed that is in the Federal District of New Springfield. It is exactly 0.9797 square meters with two rooms, one the main area and the other the “bedroom” like area, which is just a pillow. As they promised in Late October, the Seybold Department of Housing and Addressing would create addresses for every building. They decided to first name the streets of the Democratic Republic of Seybold. The first street that they named was North Hulk Street. It runs from the Southern American-Seybold border to the border of the Federal District of New Springfield and the Province of New Woodlelands. It was named “Hulk Street” after the Hulk “action figure” that was left by the side of the road. The next road they named was East Greene Street. It runs from the beginning of the East side the Federal District of New Springfield Border to the West Side of it. It was named “Greene Street” after the Green Party of Seybold ’s headquarters that is located there. The third street that they named was South Ocean Street. It runs from the Northern American-Seybold border down to the end of the unofficially named “Woodlelands Peninsula”. It was named “Ocean Street” after the Seybold World Map, since all maps prominently show the Ocean. The next Street that they named was South Wood Street. It runs from the end of Ocean Street down to the Southern American-Seybold Border. It was named “Wood Street” since it is in the Province of New Woodlelands and the road is on land that is surrounded mostly by wooden objects. All four new streets have grey paper signs that have their names on them. They were placed around the location of the streets. The next thing that the Seybold Department of Housing and Addressing did was give an address to every building in the Democratic Republic of Seybold. They decided to split up the starting number of the address by provinces. All of the addresses in the Province of New Woodlelands starts with the number one while all the addresses in the Federal District of New Springfield start with the number two. The first building that they addressed was the Seybold Weather Service Weather Station in the Province of New Woodlelands. It was addressed as 1001. The second building they addressed was the Seybold World Map site, also in the Province of New Woodlelands. It was addressed as 1002. The third building that was addressed was the Green Party of Seybold’s Headquarters in the Federal District of New Springfield. The building was addressed as 2001. The fourth and final building that they addressed was the residential property of President Cooper Norfolk in the Federal District of New Springfield. It was officially addressed as 2002. The final addresses of all buildings in the Democratic Republic of Seybold have been officially registered under the Department of Housing and Addressing. The Seybold Weather Service Weather Station’s official address is now 1001 S Wood St. Woodlelands City, N.W., the official address of the Seybold World Map is 1002 N Ocean St. Woodlelands City, N.W., the official address of the Green Party of Seybold’s Headquarters is 2001 E Greene St. New Springfield, N.S., and the official address of President Cooper Norfolk’s residential property is 2002 E Greene St. New Springfield, N.S.

First Census

On 1 December 2018, the Seybold Department of The Census asked all citizens of the Democratic Republic of Seybold multiple simple questions to compile the first ever Census of the Democratic Republic of Seybold. This Census was one month late due to technical issues, as it was supposed to occur on November 1st, but it was delayed until 1 December. All eight citizens were asked about their name, age, religion, race, sex, languages are spoken, species, and employment or unemployment. Those choices were put on a piece of paper and sent to all citizens of the Democratic Republic of Seybold at about 6 A.M. UTC-5. The first census paper given to the Seybold Department of The Census was submitted at 6:30 A.M. The Seybold Department of The Census did not give out individual information on any single person, but they did compile the data into multiple pie charts for scale. All of the Census papers were turned in at 5 P.M. UTC-5 to the Seybold Department of The Census to make pie charts for each subject. Eight Census papers’ were turned in, meaning there are exactly eight citizens of the Democratic Republic of Seybold. The Census papers proved that the majority age of the Democratic Republic of Seybold is eleven at 25%, the majority religion of the Democratic Republic of Seybold is a tie between Christianity and Buddhism at 37.5%, the majority race of the Democratic Republic of Seybold is Causcasian at 37.5%, the majority Sex of the Democratic Republic of Seybold is Male at 75%, the Majority Language of the Democratic Republic of Seybold is English at 75%, the majority Species of the Democratic Republic of Seybold is Homo Sapiens at 75%, the unemployment rate is at 100%, and the Retirement rate is at 12.5%. The Seybold Department of The Census claims that the next Census would be on 1 January 2019, recounting the month of December, 2018. President Cooper Norfolk is very happy about the turnout of this Census, as it was only optional.

National Bank of Seybold Establishment

On 2 January 2019, Jason Keourac, sponsored by the government, of course, built the National Bank of Seybold. He decided that the location of the National Bank of Seybold should be in the capital of the Democratic Republic of Seybold, New Springfield, the Federal District of New Springfield. He measured the land area and found a perfect area of 0.37032184 square meters to build the bank. He filled out a Building Permit and sent it to the Head of the Seybold Department of Construction Iyan Seeker, which was approved at about 3 P.M. GMT-5. After getting the building permit approved, Jason Keourac started the physical construction of the Bank at about 3:15 P.M. GMT-5. He first found two boxes and put a piece of paper on one with the words "WITHDRAWAL" and another one with the words "DEPOSIT". Those two boxes will be used to take or give money to a certain citizen's bank account when the Teller of the Bank is present. Both boxes have the logo of the National Bank of Seybold on it, which is a green cube with square holes on each side and limbs coming out of each side above the words "National Bank of Seybold". Next to those two boxes is another slightly larger box with the words "ONLY TELLERS OPEN". This box will be used to hold bank accounts and the money put into the bank account. There were no bank accounts available, as the Seyboldish Florins were printed until the day after, but they will most likely cost ten Seyboldish Florins per Year that can be paid at any time towards the bank. The final part of the bank is a small plastic box that has a label on it with the words "SDOPAE PERMITTED USE ONLY", meaning that a person without permission from the Seybold Department of Printing and Engraving will be fired from their job at the National Bank of Seybold. The box holds newly printed and unused Seyboldish Florins, which was filled on 3 January 2019. Above all of the bank is the logo of the National Bank of Seybold. President Cooper Norfolk appointed Jason Keourac as the head of the National Bank of Seybold, which will be a government-funded organization. Jason Keourac was very happy about the foundation of the National Bank of Seybold.

Florins Printed

On 3 January 2019, the Seybold Department of Printing and Engraving officially printed some of the department's budgets in Seyboldish Florin. It was only some because of the colour printer that was used to print the Seyboldish Florins was insanely slow. The only five departments that had their budgets printed were the Seybold Department of The Census, the Seybold Department of Immigration, the Seybold Department of Construction, the Seybold Department of Art and Culture, and the Seybold Department of Foreign Relations. In response to these budgets, Head of the Seybold Department of Construction Iyan Seeker commented "cool" and the Head of the Seybold Department of Art and Culture Mei-Lin Off commented unprofessionally, "yes, let's get this bread", which is irrelevant to the conversation. President Cooper Norfolk was very happy about the currency being printed and was looking forward to being able to print more. On 3 January 2019, the Seybold Department of Printing and Engraving officially printed the rest of the department’s budgets and the adjusted presidential salary in Seyboldish Florins. The five departments that had their budgets printed were the Seybold Department of Commerce, the Seybold Department of Tourism, the Seybold Department of Elections, the Seybold Department of Printing and Engraving, and the Seybold Department of Housing and Addressing. On 5 January 2019, the Seybold Department of Printing and Engraving officially printed the rest of the needed money in the Democratic Republic of Seybold and officially pegged the Seyboldish Florin to the USD. The positions that had their salary printed today were the Vice Presidential office and each department head that is not President Cooper Norfolk, which was two. Also on that day, the extra 1,000 Seyboldish Florins that each citizen of the Democratic Republic of Seybold received to be able to pay for needed things before the first payment of each citizen, which will occur on 1 February 2019, and ten bills of each type of Seyboldish Florin, which means that there were valued 10 one Seyboldish Florins, valued 50 5 Seyboldish Florins, valued 100 10 Seyboldish Florins, valued 200 20 Seyboldish Florins, and valued 500 50 Florins. These bills will be brought to the National Bank of Seybold to exchange for larger but equally valued money. President Cooper Norfolk was very proud that the Seyboldish Currency is in circulation. All of the Seyboldish Florins were be brought to the National Bank of Seybold.

Basil Economy Established

On 26 January 2019, President Cooper Norfolk wanted to establish a Seyboldish economy so that the micronation would have a steady source of income through a basil trade with other micronations and so the Democratic Republic of Seybold would have an industry of sorts to support the nation in other ways. To establish a basil economy, President Norfolk had to create a Basil Farm. So, he bought basil from the United States of America and put on an elevated (1.0159998984m above the ground) piece of property in the Federal District of New Springfield. He then proceeded to send a building permit to the Head of the Seybold Department of Construction Iyan Seeker, who approved the 100F sale of the 0.01002888316 square meter property and the construction of the industry lot. The lot is split between two parts, one part is the main farm part and the other part is a small slither of land containing a light that acts as a greenhouse light whenever light is needed for the plant, which is very rare. President Norfolk then named the basil garden the "Kona Basil Gardens", which was named after the late dog of President Cooper Norfolk Kona who passed away in 2014. The basil farm is currently being maintained by President Norfolk.
