Ela'r'oech, formally the Empire of Ela'r'oech and formerly known as the Holy Empire of Ela'r'oech, is an autonomous territorial entity claiming to be a sovereign state, often classified as a micronation by external observers. Founded in 2018 by Charles Madgett, the Empire consists of territory in the state of Louisiana. It is an enclave and exclave micronation.[1] In March 2022, it was decided that Ela'r'oech would no longer be a Kingdom, rather it would be an Empire spanning multiple micronations. Eventually, most micronations in the Bayou Sector would join the Empire. In August 2022, the nation would begin its Reconstruction Era, as Elarian micronationalists would become less imperialistic and attempt to become more professional.

Following a 2020 legislation and vote, the nation traces it's national origins to the founding of the nations of Kakato and the First Artillery which both were established in 2020 and 2021, respectively. Both Kakato and the First Artillery are considered direct precursors to the Empire. Before those micronationsnations, the Empire's territories were held by the United States of America and Napoleonic France.

Following the Alarian Wars, the Empire (at the time a Kingdom) grew in size considerably after annexing Neo-Alaria and taking numerous pieces of land from Alaria, with claims from the Alarian War depicted in cyan blue and those from the Third Alarian War in purple in early maps. Ela'r'oech is the most influential and powerful nation in the League of Elarian Nations, of which it was a founding member. These conflicts overall resulted in the Empire gaining most of the territorial claims in the Bayou Sector. This has led some to declare the nation a micronational superpower, though this is strongly debated. On 28 March 2021, Ela'r'oech overhauled it's political system almost entirely along with their main way of progression. In July 2022, Ela'r'oech would become part of the short lived United Kingdom of the Great Bayou, before leaving in August 2022. The Empire would become part of the United Kingdom of the Great Bayou once again on 7 November 2023.


Ela'r'oech's name means "Other World" in Dangaro, which is in relation to how micronationalism may be unfamiliar or otherworldly in the eyes of an outsider, similarly, Kakato was named after Goku's - from Dragon Ball - Saiyan name, being Kakarot. It holds the basic same meaning of the reason that Goku Day had been declared a national holiday in Ela'r'oech. Ela'r'oech was also somewhat named after the character "Piccolo" from Dragon Ball. Piccolo is an alien called a Namekian, with a language of the same name. "Piccolo" in Namekian means "Other World," just like how "Ela'r'oech" means "Other World" in Dangaro. With Ela'r'oech as a Kingdom and renaming it's constituency to Ela'r'o as "Of Other," it shows that the constituency was of other origin, the other origin being the same as the "Other World."



Ela'r'oech was founded on 11 August 2018 by a separate name. It was called the First Artillery and was an idea based on nations during the crusades. It was a religious nation that followed the Episcopalian denomination of Christianity. During this time, Charles Madgett and Anthony Ramirez ruled over it together. The land claims included Ramirez's bedroom and Madgett's house, both of which were based in Texas.[2]

The First Artillery was inactive or defunct de facto for about a year until Kakato was founded by Charles. It was a more democratic but authoritarian mock-nation. Charles was the supreme leader, taking after North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. They held land claims that included Treemont, Bremerton and Round Rock.[3]

Elarian History

Alarian conflict

After achieving de-facto independence in 2020, the state of Ela'r'oech would become involved in the First Alarian War against the Kingdom of Alaria. The war would spill out into an overall conflict lasting an entire year. During this conflict, Ela'r'oech would transition into a Kingdom. As a Kingdom, Ela'r'oech would focus more on citizen's rights and growth in general inside of the MicroWiki sector.

Internal progression

Ela'r'oech experienced a period of diplomatic activity and international engagement. King Charles I played a prominent role in both Ela'r'oech and Runnymede, forming the League of Elarian Nations. However, tensions with Alaria persisted, leading to a prolonged conflict involving allies and resulting in victory for Ela'r'oech.

Ela'r'oech's subsequent efforts to strengthen its governance structures would enhance self-sufficiency and expand its diplomatic reach. Various initiatives, including economic reforms and participation in conflicts like the Kapresh Civil War, shaped Ela'r'oech's trajectory. The nation also experienced periods of inactivity and internal disputes, reflecting the complexities of micronational governance and societal dynamics.

Post-progressivism and the rise of Ela'r'oech as a hegemonic power

In 2022, Ela'r'oech would transition into an Empire. As such, it would engage in hegemony with other Bayou sector micronations such as Naga, Lateritia, and Neo-Alaria. Many of these nations would recognize the Monarchy of Ela'r'oech as their head of state and subsequently be annexed into the Empire after discussions with what it would mean for their micronations.

After transitioning into an Empire, Ela'r'oech would remain near-consistently active across the board, with many government officials including Charles remaining in the Empire and publicly so. This would also include recruiting more citizens as the school year was starting again. These recruiting efforts would lead to many modern-day Elarian politicians and socialites becoming citizens.

Pontunian dispute and conflicts regarding Elarian status as hegemonic power

In 2023, Ela'r'oech would vastly reform its military. As they did such, the Kingdom of Pontunia, a former ally of the Empire, had become a Catholic Republic. After doing so, Pontunian officials would call for an exodus of Elarians from their Republic, with one official calling for the death of Elarians. This would result in the two micronations engaging in a dispute over the Monarchy of Pontunia, with MicroWiki staff becoming involved later on.

In 2024, the dispute has continued, with more micronations attempting to condemn the Empire for it's part in what many refer to as 'Elarian imperialism.' Overall, however, the Empire has remained active outside of the dispute and the Empire's Armed Forces have grown tremendously as a result.



Elarians celebrate numerous nation-exclusive holidays, such as "Kakapalooza" which is held every 10–20 January and 15–22 May, specifically to honor the nations Kakatoan heritage. Ela'r'oech day is held on 25 August, to celebrate the nations more official establishment. On 20 February 2021, the aforementioned date will become a part of Kakapalooza as a day to celebrate the rule of Charles Madgett.

Art is a primary source of culture in Ela'r'oech. The End and End Times are some of the first motion pictures produced in Ela'r'oech, short movie and series. The media industry makes up an estimated 40% of Ela'r'oech's propaganda and advertising. On 12 May 2021, Charles created rating systems for numerous types of art. The Emperor has stated that both systems are only to be used to bring more culture to Ela'r'oech.[4] Books, comics, nor music have any of their own rating systems for themes or marketability. Recently, paintings have been generated and made by Elarians - specifically Anthony Ramirez III - to encourage Elarian exceptionalism.

News coverage

There's Ela'r'oech News Source, the main Ela'r'oech news site, however numerous other sites have apparently worked with Ela'r'oech. News sources are free to speak to Elarians according to Charles and some already have as of May 2021, with Proper Providence News calling Ela'r'oech "something that looked good, but wasn't too classy."[5] It's also come out that the Bull Moose Advance has spoken to Charles and more news sites may be giving coverage to the nation. There have been numerous Elarian movements, namely the Alarian Succession Movement which has been called by some the zuccession movement in response to their spelling of secession. It mainly calls for the end of the Alarian nation and was the organization that started Neo-Alaria until it became an Elarian noble state. There have also been other movements such as the Peace Treaty of Micronationalism, which call for the end of the Elarian-Alarian Conflict.


Ela'r'oech has many internet CCLDs used. They first used "el-" before any web address, however this is old and is only for the official government website. Later on in August 2021, uef. and began to be used respectively along with other placeholders as CCLDs.

The internet is the main basis for most businesses and companies in Ela'r'oech, including Photon Economy, ACBIC, and Pride of Nations: Online's service. Photon Economy, ACBIC, Firefly, and the government website all have active ccLDs, with Photon Economy even having an app on the Google Play Store, while also being the only business with a Legacy ccLD, having the privilege granted for being deemed the most profitable business in the country

Cultural Rating Systems

The structure rating system has been used multiple times before, mostly with a 3 for commercial buildings made around New Da'a'ck. On 13 July 2021, he graded some builds which had been made. He graded a table which had been built a 5, for being the first structure he would grade that was not his own. He had previously given himself one '5' for having the first structure to be rated.

The media rating system has been used many times, mainly for The End and Chicken and the Dog. Other series have also been rated, mainly for the new Elarian-based Firefly, a new micronational streaming service releasing in 2023. Firefly also operates as its own production company.

The Climate of Ela'r'oech has hot, humid summers with the occasional hurricane or storm, with mild winters.

Following the claims recognition from ACBekistan and Kakato, these land claims are their own former classifications of noble states, now into districts, being "ACBICestan" and "Kakatoa." On March 30, Neo-Alaria was admitted as a noble state, rather than a simple city. On April 30, cities, provinces, and noble states as ideas were merged into districts. Ela'r'oech holds 5 districts over the nation, with ACBICestan, Kakatoa, Tomsident, New Da'a'ck, and Raul.

Territory changes mainly from conflicts have contributed greatly to Ela'r'oech. However, on 15 December 2023, all formerly recognized territories of Ela'r'oech were re-established in a new format to fit the standards of the United Kingdom of the Great Bayou.


Ela'r'oech has two states, three if one counts Carolusia. Mabo comes from the Elarian word for 'ancient soil,' Mabo is also the continuation of Da'a'ck in the modern day. Hanpo comes from the Elarian word for 'military,' as it is the continuation of the Militia Lands in the modern day.

Economics appear to be going well in Ela'r'oech as businesses appear to be forming through the first few months of it's existence and people are purchasing goods with their Stix. It claimed to have 1,507,500 Stix and counting, with the 1,500,000 due to the Alarian War. Multiple businesses have been founded in Ela'r'oech since they are unable to get a proper start in the United States of America.[6] After the economic reform throughout the Kingdom of the United Elarian Front, Stix were replaced by the United Elarian Dollar, now worth half of a United States Dollar. Businesses in Ela'r'oech include Firefly, ACBIC, Photon Economy, Pride of Nations and more. Firefly is a streaming service, with content made by micronational citizens. ACBIC is a multi-million dollar company - in United Elarian Dollars terms - that has a gaming-based subcompany as well as a website that features content creation.

An Ela'r'oech Identification Card. They also hold monetary information.

Photon Economy is a website that features user-generated content that allows players to make and sell items for virtual avatars. Pride of Nations: Online is a game service that functions through Discord as an RTS. Ela'r'oech has provided real progress to looking like a macronation, as it is now able to provide education, jobs, and military. Most of these are very limited to only some citizens, however if it is proven through studying the citizens that the progress is going well, they may open more and more up to residents and open up all signs of progress to all, eventually with the possibility of getting recognized, at least by the U.S. However, according to the Declarative Theory, Ela'r'oech is actually considered a macronation by some. These claims are ignored by Christoph and Charles. It seems most progress has halted with the new change in power. Charles purchased ID Cards on 5 August 2021. Charles received them on 19 August that year. Citizens have since been receiving and using said IDs, notably one citizen used it to make purchases on Photon Economy, a website Charles had made earlier that day.


The government of the Empire serves a constitutional imperial monarchy with democratic institutions. For example, the Emperor Charles I is not an elected government official. However, he will serve the position of Emperor until his death. Due to previous issues which sparked controversy such as the First and Second Elarian Monarchy Disputes, the Emperor is unable to abdicate his position constitutionally. Additionally, it is unconstitutional to attempt to limit the monarchy's power.

Federally serving along with the Emperor, would be both the Chancellor and President of the Empire respectfully. The Parliament of the Empire is represented by Representative-Members of Parliament, which serve as both MPs and Representatives of local territories in the Empire. The provinces and territories of the Empire each get one Representative. The President holds the power to veto a Parliamentary resolution. However, Parliament also has the power to overturn the President's veto, sending it to the Chancellor for review. The President also acts as an intermediary between the Parliament and the Chancellor who in turn acts as an intermediary between the public and the Emperor.

The Chancellor and Emperor both hold enumerated powers, however the Emperor reserves the ability to remove any of the Chancellor's enumerated powers within a two-day notice.

There are two states of the Empire, named Rana and Shana after Ranaist beliefs, two provinces being Alaria and Ela'r'o, as well as two unincorporated territories named Hezron and Doyle.

*The 'Micronational' section is for organizations the Empire is in. The 'Macronational' section is for organizations which policies the Empire respects and abides by, but the Empire is not a formal part of any of these organizations.. Additionally, member states of organizations in the 'Condemned' section are automatically deemed 'Condemned' for the Empire, however they may not appear in the micronational overview. However, for an example, Faltree is viewed as a member state of the International Workers Congress, yet they have already separately been condemned as a nation aside from their status as a member state of the IWC. For this, Faltree is listed in the 'Condemned' section of the micronational overview.

Foreign policy

Ela'r'oech has gone into relations notably with Begon, Runnymede, and Worrell. Ela'r'oech is mainly a reactive nation which means it tends to use others in ways to help generate activity within the nation, which means it had become more co-dependent. However, after Ela'r'oech had gained more constituencies, it began to become more isolationist and independent. The constituencies have begun to talk domestic policy and trade deals, as Keystone has begun to rely on Ela'r'oech for it's own missile program.

Ela'r'oech had entered relations with Runnymede some time in 2020, notably in November during their Prime Minister elections, as Charles had began to wonder if the two could enter an alliance and start a micronational organization - which eventually became LENS - however after the Runnymeden community began to turn on him, he left the server for a while, back and forth, until eventually in January 2021, Charles led a revolution which became known as the LENS-Runnymede War which took down the Runnymede Discord server thus rendering the government unable to continue. Afterwards, the former Runnymeden government began Worrell and Charles quickly had apologized and joined Worrell, later becoming the second Vice President until Matthew Cunningham had banned him, despite the public unaware of any wrong doing - this had sparked the Worrellian Civil War - afterwards, Charles looked towards other micronations and began going into relations with Bushistan.

After entering relations with Bushistan, Charles and Ela'r'oech's government focused now would be a good time to expand economically, later looking to help out the Bushistani government by becoming a member of the House of Representatives. Later on, the public there opposed an economic bill and had gone after Charles, thus ending any foreign relations possible with Ela'r'oech and Bushistan.

Afterwards, Ela'r'oech began to grow more independent until Terry McKeen had come to Charles informing him of a new Worrell. After being informed that the older Worrell had been destroyed after he left the server, Terry claimed the office of Worrell's President and let Charles become the Vice President, until Matthew Cunningham and Liam MacKenzie used intimidation tactics to run him out. Eventually, they had made McKeen delete the server, leading him to make a new Discord server for Worrell as he named Charles the chancellor. Charles had began Elarian Foreign Relations afterwards, until McKeen had gotten mad at the proposal of a democratic annexation into a constituency. Later on, Charles left that server thus any relations with it until deciding to make his own Worrell, naming it the Empire. Terry later dissolved his Republic of Worrell, joining the Empire of Worrell as an Elarian constituency before it had it's name changed to Keystone, starting an independent Ela'r'oech.

Since 2023, the Empire has focused on maintaining diplomatic relations with historic allies such as Pontunia, Begon, Kamore, and Bushistan.

Intermicronational organisation participation

Ela'r'oech is a founding nation of the Certified Higher Authority of the Secessionist Micronationalists and had considered attempting to join the Grand Unified Micronational, however Charles determined Ela'r'oech may not have been accepted, so they began the LENS and has so far not been involved with many other organizations. However, the Principality of Runnymede held a vote to leave the Micronational Assembly, which was heavily persuaded by Christoph Billung, the ruler of the Grand Principality of Begon and a member of the Noble 10, as well as Charles Madgett himself more to get Runnymede to join the LENS, which was voted upon as well. This ended in a vote and referendum where it would have been decided that Runnymede would leave the MA and join the LENS, however Runnymede's prince swiftly went against this vote opting to stay in the MA, this resulted in the "LENS-Runnymede War." After the dissolution of the LENS, Charles started CHASM.

Branches of Combative Service

There are four branches in the Armed Forces, which includes the Royal Army, the Royal Defense Corps, the Royal Search and Seizure Command, and the Eisheitei. Each branch consists of separate roles.

Royal Army

The Royal Army is the land service branch of the Elarian Armed Forces. It is one of the four uniformed services of the Empire, as the oldest and most senior branch of the Armed Forces. The Royal Army holds the following missions;

  • Serve the Empire militarily
  • Following declarations of war from the Empire
  • Protecting the mainlands of the Empire

Royal Defense Corps

The Royal Defense Corps is the primarily defensive land service branch of the Elarian Armed Forces as one of the four uniformed services of the Empire. The Defense Corps primarily focuses on defending the mainlands of Ela'r'oech and is also very closely tied to the Royal Army. The Royal Defense Corps holds the following missions;

  • Protect the Empire
  • Serve the Empire to death
  • Serve in the Army following declarations of war

Royal Search and Seizure Command

The Royal Search and Seizure Command is the land service branch of the Elarian Armed Forces as one of the four uniformed services of the Empire. It primarily focuses on searching suspected terrorists, criminals, and felons. It holds the following missions;

  • Search suspected terrorists, felons, and criminals
  • Seize any suspected homes of terrorists, felons, criminals
  • Seize any device or objects which are involved or suspected to be involved in criminal activities


The Eisheitei is the secret police of mainland Ela'r'oech, it's one of the four uniformed services of the Empire. It primarily focuses on acting upon the direct orders of the Emperor himself, separate from the Parliament. It holds the following missions;

  • Follow the Emperor's direct orders
  • Be directly loyal to the Emperor
  • Protect the Emperor and his family


For Kakato, Laws included a 2-child law, no rights for women, education including war-doctrines, disabled citizens in labor camps, transgenders and black people not being recognized as holding citizenship. These were laws that were mainly de jure and not enforced, one member of congress was a woman and another congress member was black. Ela'r'oech holds an Elarian Film Night at random, but they feature movies created by Elarians, such as The End. The leader creates an "End of the World" speech and a "Kakapalooza" speech every 10 December of the year, in which he will use them in the next year for the Kakapalooza speech. The End of the World speech is used only in the event of a confirmed end of humanity or end of Earth's sustenance. In May 2021, Charles had finally moved with his family and on 8 May 2021 he announced that he would be selling IDs and merchandise. On 9 May 2021, he also announced that Goku Day - May 9 - would become a national holiday.[7] It is a growing nation which is also becoming more self-sufficient. Gardens and animals are joining Elarian properties in order to bring forth proper means of self-sufficiency.
