State of Faltree
Faltrian Anarchy

The Commonwealth of Faltree, often informally known as Faltree, was an independent sovereign state, commonly referred to as a micronation by outside observers. It was established on the 29 July 2023, by Jebediah Powell with assistance from prominent politicians from the State of Faltree. The Commonwealth of Faltree is a founding member of the International Workers Congress. The Commonwealth of Faltree dissolved itself on 13 June 2024, leading to the Faltrian Anarchy.

Etymology

Faltree comes from a portmanteau of fall and tree, coming from the fact that Faltree has a large number of fallen trees. Everywhere in Faltree there is an abundance of trees and general flora.

History

2023

Constitution of the Commonwealth of Faltree

The Commonwealth of Faltree was founded primarily by Jebediah Powell, with assistance from Connor Shaw, Asher Young, Fredrick M., Matthew Laptev, and Jonathan Gundy. The Commonwealth gained its legitimacy from the collaboration of these individuals, including the former Commander of Faltree, two Interior Ministers, and multiple government ministers. Young served as the first premier of the Commonwealth. Powell served as the first Lord-Secretary of the Commonwealth. The Constitution of the Commonwealth of Faltree was written on 1 August 2023, which now constitutes the government of Faltree. On 9 August 2023, the Commonwealth of Faltree and the Aleunnic Workers' Republic collaborated to reform the International Workers Congress, which had previously existed under the State of Faltree. On 11 August the Commonwealth recognized a variety of microstates and independence movements, notably beginning relations with the State of Avon. On 12 August the age of smoking and drinking was lowered to 16, as the Commonwealth believed both of these to be markedly less dangerous than operating an automobile. On 15 August, the first elections were held for the Faltrian People's Soviet, wherein the Faltrian Social Democracy Party gained a majority of 3 deputies as compared to the 2 deputies of the Faltrian Railroad Association and the 1 deputy of the Faltrian Radical Socialism-Distributism Party. Summarily, Anthony G. was elected as the second Premier of the Commonwealth on 16 August 2023. Additionally, the Commonwealth signed a treaty of mutual recognition with the People's Republic of Marhaenia on the same day. On 19 August, the District of Chepiwanoxet was established to counter the Roscami Federation's perceived illegitimate claims over the Chepiwanoxet peninsula. On 25 August, the people of the Province of Wellington voted for an electoral recall, wherein the Radical Socialism-Distributism party gained another seat in the Soviet whilst the Social Democracy Party lost a deputy. On 27 August 2023, the Faltrian People's Soviet held an 80% vote of no confidence to remove Premier Anthony G., wherein Owen Bean was immediately voted in as the third Premier of the Commonwealth on the same day. On 29 August 2023, the Commonwealth of Faltree annexed the entirety of the Batavian Empire via a territorial transfer.[1] The Commonwealth established the Provisional Districts of Bergachtig, Tueoedeth, and Trafford whilst incorporating other territories into existing Provinces.

On 2 September 2023, the Provisional Districts of Bergachtig and Tueoedeth were dissolved by vote of the Faltrian People's Soviet. On 3 September 2023, Miskatonic was named the capital of the Commonwealth of Faltree via national referendum. On 4 September 2023, the Einheitsfrontlied was adopted as the official anthem of the Commonwealth via national referendum. On 7 September 2023, Premier Bean announced the Population Doubling Plan, later referred to as the Three Month Plan, as his project as Premier which aimed to increase the amount of Faltrian citizens from 25 to 50 before the beginning of 2024. On 14 September 2023, the Commonwealth signed a treaty of mutual recognition with the Free Socialist State of Paloma. On 19 September 2023, two notable acts were passed into law by the Faltrian People's Soviet. These two acts stipulated party entry requirements into the Faltrian Left Front and established the positions of Provincial Governors for the three Faltrian provinces. On 20 September 2023, the Rhesus macaque was adopted as the national animal of the Commonwealth and the House finch was adopted as the national bird. On 30 September 2023, the first Provincial Governors were elected to their positions.

On 7 October, the Commonwealth issued its official support for the struggle of the people of Palestine against Israel, additionally the Anarcho-Syndicalist Party was deregistered from the Faltrian Left Front due to a lack of members. On 8 October, the term limits for Deputies and Provincial Governors were defined as being three months, but as of 2024 these limits have been followed extremely loosely. Due to the speed and efforts of the Faltrian people, Premier Owen Bean announced on 23 October 2023 that the Three Month Plan had been completed before its deadline as the Commonwealth had reached 50 citizens.

Flag of the Communist Party of Faltree

On 17 November 2023, the Commonwealth announced that it would refuse to recognize any nation that recognized the State of Israel as apart of its official foreign policy. On 18 November 2023, the Commonwealth held a general election wherein 9 deputies were elected to the Faltrian People's Soviet. 5 Constitutional Democratic Party deputies were elected and 4 Radical Socialism-Distributism deputies were elected. Owen Bean was immediately re-elected as the Premier of the Commonwealth. On 29 November 2023, the Commonwealth celebrated the death of Henry Kissinger.

On 4 December 2023, another round of Provincial Governors were elected to their posts, notably Logan Ferguson was elected as the Provincial-Governor of Breuckelen. On 9 December 2023, it was announced by the Commonwealth that weed was legal throughout the Commonwealth. 16 December saw multiple major political events occur, firstly with the dissolution of the Faltrian Social Democracy Party due to a lack of members, and secondly the Ferguson secession attempt perpetrated by the MLM Communist Party of Faltree following the criticism of Logan Ferguson's tenure as Provincial-Governor of Breuckelen. Ferguson attempted to form the "Faltrian Revolutionary Socialist Republic" but this concept never got off the ground due to the polity being filled with mainly non-Faltrians, and Ferguson gave up on 17 December 2023. Politics stabilized within the Commonwealth following this secession attempt.

2024

On 2 January 2024, the Commonwealth formed the Trimmino Pact with the Socialist Republic of Paumanocia and the Socialist Commonwealth of Malus in order to uphold socialist values.[2] Despite the signing of this pact, the beginning of 2024 would bring widespread political instability for the Commonwealth of Faltree.
