The Territory of Emerald Isle was a Micronation that was founded on April 6, 2011 before the Republic was a SAD of the Empire of Starland because of a rebellion that took place in March. While it is defunct as a micronation, it lives on as a part of the Union of Starland.
The beginning of micronationality
The Empire of North Carolina (ENC) was the first attempt to start a micronation. ENC Was very restrictive, as only those of North Carolina birth could even enter the country. It covered all of North Carolina and some of Tennessee and South Carolina. It was disbanded after several Protests and problems with New Europe lasting a total of one week.
Soon after The fall of ENC, it was reorganized into a Democratic Republic called the Democratic Republic of Cliff Island (DRCI). The DRCI was more open in its membership than its predecessor group, as the previous group only allowed those who had been born in NC to join. The DRCI accepted all people who had been born in the US, Increasing its activity and numbers, But the North Carolinians of the group maintain control of the nation Like the President Sir. Jackson Niles Alexander who made the first contact with the Micronational community in late January 2010. Soon after its creation, the DRCI was rocked by a Rebellion called the Clarke Rebellion. The Government was soon able to squash the rebellion but had to pardon the rebels, which caused what came to be known as the Cliff Island Civil War. Again, the Government came out on top. later the government was reformed and became good allies with the Kingdom of Starland (now the Empire of Starland). But once again, the DRCI was rocked by three consecutive conflicts, the Draco-Cliff war, The Kingdom of Alaska and the Second Cliff Island Civil War. This series of events caused DRCI to fail.
The Kingdom of Emerald Isle was founded on August 18, 2010, by the old government of DRCI after it became a Special Administrative District of Starland. But the as-of-then unfinished war with Alaska. Emerald Isle Won and King Jackson were appointed heir to the Alaskan throne. After the end of the Alaskan Conflict, several months of peace fallowed. But DRCI later became involved in the Atlantis Civil War on September 18, 2010. After which followed yet another era of peace.
The Birth of A Republic
On January 12, 2011, The King of Emerald Isle announced that, after a meeting with the Grand Lord, he had decided that the Kingdom would become a Republic that Friday. The Transition soon went underway from a Kingdom to a Republic. The transition when smother than expected, with only one minor protest by royalists, soon after the transition, the first elections occurred, with the victory of Jackson Alexander. Around the same time, the Senate approved the military to adapt their technologies for civil uses, known as Operation hawk egg. This let to the nations "industrial Revolution", one of the most important eras in the nation's history.
soon after the Industrial Revolution, The nation fell quiet for almost a month, during this time, conflict arose throughout the micronational world, which the Republic soon gave responses to. first by claiming neutrality in a conflict between Bethania and Senya and again in another during Sandus's independence form St. Charlie. afterwards, the President condemned President Ben Lawson of Wyke for vetoing a motion-of-no-convenience against him. currently a vote in being held to see whether to place embargoes on Wyke for this. on March 3rd, 2011 the Senate cut ties with the US due to them helping the Westboro baptist church. They also voted to make the colony of Alaska a sub-territory of the Republic, bringing short tensions with the Social Republic of Bethania, the situation was fixed within a few days. two weeks later, the senate decided that Absolutist Republic of Gratismansland, formerly the ally the Kingdom of Gratismansland, was no longer desirable as an ally due to the leader of the nation taking full control of the nation.
On March 19, 2011, a plot us uncovered to stage a military coup against the federal government by a group of mercenaries called the Merks, This caused the federal government to give up independence to the Republic of Starland again to help discourage the rebels and to help quell the violence in the case of a war. on March 22, 2011, due mostly to pressure from the micronational community, most of the Government joined the rebels, this caused the Republic to fall. at 8:45 PM, the republic fell for good, the former president stated: "Logan, you went down and brought emerald Isle down with you!"
Reestablishment and Fall
After the Republic fell, it became a SAD of the Republic of Starland which became an Empire after a few days. During this time war was being fought between Starland and Emerald Isle and the Rebels who had formed the Republic of Tarconia. after three days of hard fighting by the Emerald Isle forces, Jackson Alexander asked for peace talks which resulted in a peace treaty between Emerald Isle, Tarconia, and Starland, The republic of Cliff Island, reestablished by some rebels and offered as an agreement by the treaty, refused to sign. Starland and Emerald Isle came up with an agreement that on April 6, 2011, Emerald Isle will become independent. On that day the republic entered a nationwide day of celebration as the republic was reestablished by the former government. Within three days, DRCI accepted the treaty and the "Emerald Isle Civil War" was over.
The Republic managed to continue for another year, although, states of inactivity. After joining the Union of Starland in a war against the US' growing oppressive regime, disorder began to form. On March 20, 2012, the Republic of Emerald Island finally fell, the Southern Territories and Jacksonville all that remained under the Alexander government, and joined the Union of Starland.
Emerald Isle is a territorial government, meaning it has its own leader but is directly governed by the Government of Starland and has no representation in Parliament. The territory is represented by a Governor, appointed by the Prime Minister. There "jobs" is the commander of the military in the region, governor of the executive district, the political figurehead of the Territory, the power to propose Territorial laws and veto them, basic command of judiciary or internal affairs. The military is under the jurisdiction of the Starlander Republican Guard which is responsible for policing, putting down of riots, protecting of government, keeping of peace within the nation, and other things. In the case of a felony charged against a political leader, then that leader can be impeached immediately with the passing of a "motion of no convenience" by the Starlander Parliament. The impeachment lasts indefinitely unless the charges are proven false. The next in line (politically speaking) is given the job of the impeached until a new vote can happen.
