Etymology

The name "Alrovia" comes from the English word "Rove". An "Al" was then added to the beginning, and "ia" to the end signify the name of a place.

History

The first instance of the usage of both the name "Alrovia" and the Alrovian Flag were on April 1, 2019, with the creation of a CityState save game with the Alrovian name and Flag on Jacob's personal computer. On an unknown date, but presumably the 23rd, a Minecraft world was created with the same name.

On April 23, 2019, the Alrovian Constitution entered its first draft.

On May 20, 2019, an Instagram account by the name of "offical_alrovia_ball" was created, managed by Jacob. It is a Polandball account, featuring the adventures of Alroviaball.

On May 23, 2019, the Alrovian Constitution was completed. It named Jacob as the President of Alrovia, as he was the only member of the micronation at that time. Due to a provision in the Constitution, he then immediately became a de facto dictator.

On May 24, 2019, the day after the ratification, Alrovia declared independence from the United States of America. Its Declaration of Independence cites widespread government corruption, suppression of individual liberties, and an overregulated economy.
