The area that the Democratic Republic of Seybold is located near is known as the Larger Seybold Area, Florida.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
Seybold Geographical Society Founded
On 2nd October, 2018, President Cooper Norfolk founded a non-governmental organization called the Seybold Geographical Society, or SGS. The purpose of the Seybold Geographical Society is an organization dedicated to exploring Seybold and the world around it, finding artefacts as they go. President Cooper Norfolk said he created the SGS because he wanted an organization that would inform the citizens of Seybold about the world around them and where they can explore. He also wanted to uncover hundreds of possible “historical items” around Seybold and make a museum with them. He did not need permission from the government to explore since citizens of Seybold had the right to do as they please with Historical Items.
Seybold Independence Movement Created
On 4th October, 2018, President Cooper Norfolk decided to take an action he never thought he would have taken before. He created the Seybold Independence Movement, calling it a quote, "strong independence movement, one of the only micronational ones that could be happening". President Norfolk created the Seybold Independence Movement because he wanted to strengthen the autonomy of the Democratic Republic of Seybold and to strengthen the secessionist movement in the micronationalist community. The first thing that he did for the Seybold Independence Movement created a petition for independence. On the petition, it says exactly, quote "tired of the United States screwing you up? Support the Seybold Independence Movement. We are a nation trying to gain recognition from the government, starting with the Mayor of (Withheld Information), Florida. We need 10,000 Signatures to get this to the Mayor! Please help by signing down below". President Cooper Norfolk will be advertising this petition in the communities around Seybold. Anyone above the age of 7 could sign the petition since that is the legal voting age in Seybold.
Seybold Bowling League Founded
On 13th October 2018, President Cooper Norfolk officially signed an executive order relating to the official sport of the Democratic Republic of Seybold. The first national sport of Seybold was Lacrosse since it was the only sport played by the then citizens of Seybold. Since there has been a rise a bowling, with about 33% of the then Democratic Republic of Seybold playing the sport, President Cooper Norfolk changed the national sport of Seybold to Bowling. After the Executive Order being signed, President Cooper Norfolk created an official organization called the Micronational Bowling Association, or the MBA. The MBA claimed that they would be trying to create a professional bowling league strictly for members of micronational entities. The current official full members of the MBA are the Republic of Tamcoop and Democratic Republic of Seybold Some other micronations that could join the MBA are the Federal Republic of Cloverland and the Totalitarian Dictatorship of the Rising Sun, since the majority of their micronations are bowlers. President Cooper Norfolk also created the Seybold Bowling League, which is basically the MBA but on a national level. There will be provincial playoffs for each province in Democratic Republic of Seybold for who will represent them in the national playoffs. Whoever wins that playoff will be the official intermicronational representative for the final games of the MBA their playoff this Sunday the 14th of October, 2018. The official player of the Federal District of New Springfield is President Cooper Norfolk and the official player of the Province of New Woodlelands is Jason Keourac. They had the playoffs on 14 October, 2018 with Jason Keourac winning with 113 points overall.
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 thinks Seybold should not have a full-time, 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. President Norfolk also created a logo for the Seybold Reserve. It is a tank spewing fire with a Seybold 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. President 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 SWS is now an Independent Agency in Seybold that is dedicated to giving the citizens of Seybold the daily weather. The SWS will be tracking 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 SWS 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 SWS headquarters, where their weather forecasting station is, has a sign that has the logo of the SWS 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 SWS 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.
Seybold Plastic Control Agency Established
On 3 November 2018, President Cooper Norfolk decided to create an organization to control the plastic flow through the Democratic Republic of Seybold. This means that the organization, which has been officially named the Seybold Plastic Control Agency, which is an Independent Agency, will be making sure that no plastic is allowed in Seybold and that if it is that it will be taken care of in a productive and somewhat creative way. President Cooper Norfolk said that not all uses of plastic are bad, such as airbags and IV Bags, but products and plastic straws are not good since they pile up over time and they end in the sea, which the Marine Life Eats. President Norfolk also had an idea of what to do about the plastic that did end up in [[Seybold]. Instead of throwing it away, citizens could give any useless plastic to the SPCA, which is an acronym for the agency, who will then put the plastic on a public canvas in the Province of New Woodlelands, so it is basically alternative art. The Seybold Department of Tourism likes this idea a lot since it could create tourism revenue in the future.
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 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’s, 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 New Springfield Border to the West Side of it. It was named “Greene Street” after the Green Party of Seybold ’s headquarter 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.
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 is one month late due to technical issues, as it was supposed to occur on November 1st, but at least it is happening now. 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 giving 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.
