Free Nakoosa Republic was founded by the Democratic Weimar Republic after a liberation mission during the Great Des Plaines Valley War. The nation's primary motivation was to establish a society based on principles of personal freedom, individual liberty, and democratic decision-making.
Nakoosa's territory encompasses a small section of land on the western shore of Lake Castle Rock. The micronation's borders are demarcated by a small fence and marked by a flag displaying the state symbol. Despite its small size, the Free Nakoosa Republic has its own government, constitution, and legal system.
The Free Nakoosa Republic operates as a unicameral presidential republic, with executive power vested in the President and legislative power held by the unicameral Parliament. The President is elected by majority vote and serves as the head of state and government. The Parliament is composed of a single chamber, and its members are elected through a proportional representation system.
Since its founding, the Free Nakoosa Republic has actively sought recognition from other nations and has embarked on a campaign to expand its diplomatic relations with the wider international community. The micronation's leadership has stated that their ultimate goal is to establish Nakoosa as a fully recognized and independent nation-state.

The land where Nakoosa is now was the land of the Ho chunk and Menominee people. the land was colonized by France in 1534. it later change hands after the French and Indian War to the British. the land was later admitted to the Northwest Territory by the United States and in 1848 the state of Wisconsin. Nakoosa is on Castle Rock Lake, an artificial lake on the Wisconsin River. Before the Castle Rock Dam was completed in 1951, the area held farmlands, vast prairies, and forested knolls separated by the Wisconsin River. The area where main Nakoosa is located was founded as a Boy Scout camp, Camp Castle Rock. In the early 2000's the camp was renamed to Ed Bryant Scout Reservation. Most people, even Nakoosans, still refer to the main Nakoosa as Ed Bryant or EBSR. What is now the frontier of Nakoosa was made a Buckhorn State Park managed by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
Great Des Plaines Valley War
in 2021 the Philmont Confederation claimed control over the setteled regions of the area as a military base. On 11 July, Weimar forces invaded Camp Castle Rock. A campaign against the small garrison of Philmont soldiers holding out with no hope of reinforcements coming. For the first 3 days, only a small camp was liberated in the modern day province of Bavaia. however, on 13 June, a more aggressive approach was taken and half the territory was liberated by Weimar troops. The next day, heavy rain impaired operations, but near night fall, heavy fighting erupted along the roads of the territory and ended near the original camp. On the night of 17 July, the final night of occupation, small patrols were launched to disrupted the demoralized and thin supply lines of the Philmont army the 2nd Observation Regiment was also dispatched to raid the capitol building. on 18 July, the Free Philmont Republic was created shortly following the surrender of the Philmont garrison in the territory.
for a time the newly formed country was given the liberty of Self-determination however with the onset of the Cicero Spenninger, New Germany wanted to regrow it's once great empire and so it was claimed as a Commonwealth. even though it was officially part of the New German Colonial Empire it was still left to it's own devises.
Summer of Prosperity
during the Summer of 2022 New Germany at last put effort toward the territory. many workers from New Germany were sent to build up infrastructure and the economy. by midsummer the frontier was also claimed as an official part of the territory. it was ranked as the second best territory by the New German Territory ministry, the predecessor to the New German Riechs-Kommandant. however with these workers came Trolls, a group of people from the Des Plaines Valley Sector caused civil unrest causing disruption in the food supply line, a power outage, and even injury to New German Rangers. the New German Intelligence Agency went to great lenghts to keep this hidden, however many Rangers leaked the information to the Nakoosan public.
Weg Election Rigging
on the 10th of March 2023 the Free Philmont Republic would hold an election for the next Senior Chairman. during the election the New German backed Sakaive was accused of rigging the election when in fact he had never actually voted for a legitimate candidate. he lost the election over a deeply controversial single vote, also of 5 counters, 1 was voted of the council for apparent "conduct unbecoming" . during the election of the Vice Chairman again Sakaive ran and again only voted for an illegitimate candidate, the only tampering with the election it seems was for this illegitimate candidate. and when all the votes were accounted for it was found that Sakaive would have won the position of Vice Chairman. after the election it was found that a 3 of the original 5 counters were paid off by Cole Baird to rig the election. this also proves that the apparent "conduct unbecoming" was false and the council wanted to make sure that Weg backed candidates.
New Freedom Era
In late March of 2023 Cole Baird became a citizen of the FPR similar to their citizenship in other nations. Cole plans to live in Nakoosa over the summer as worker in one of the companies located in Laertes.

In Wegmat, Cole Baird is an attorney in the Kearsage Law Frim along with their several political offices held in Wegmat. Nakoosa now holds a special governence and are shall be governed by the people of Nakoosa and not the council, located in Priory. Along with Cole's push for more independance as a commonwealth, they also adapted the name Nakoosa to avoid confusion with Philmont Scout Ranch located in New Mexico. The government has only adopted the name Nakoosa and people in the Des Plaines Valley Sector, Nakoosa as a place is colloquilly reffered to as Ed Bryant. After the New German investigation into the election interference believed to be caused by the Wegmat Government, the Free Philmont Republic was dissolved. Once this happened Vladimir Baruh had the Weg-backed candidates located in Priory were arrested and barred from holding Nakoosan office. Vladimir was inspired to reform the Free Philmont Republic and thus had the Wisconsin Riechs-Kommandant put the Constitution into effect. Due to the location of New Germany away from Nakoosa, as well as the lack of complete control over the territory; the government in the Duchy of the FPR was dissolved and the current Nakoosan government was formed. Nakoosa was given official Commonwealth status and was de-jure left alone by New Germany. In May 2023, the new government was faced with civil unrest by Trollies located in rural "unprotected areas" in Nakoosa who wanted Independence. The New German Intelligence Agency launched an investigation into the claims by the Nakoosan government but stated that the findings were insignificant.

The architecture of Nakoosa is heavily influenced by the rustic charm of log cabins. The majority of buildings in the nation are log cabins, which are commonly used as homes and public buildings. The use of logs in building construction is a nod to the region's history of logging and the abundance of timber in the area. The log cabins are often embellished with decorative elements such as porches, chimneys, and gabled roofs.
In addition to log cabins, picnic pavilions, similarly to Wegmat, are also a common sight in Nakoosa.

Nakoosa's infrastructure is characterized by its ruggedness and simplicity. The majority of the transportation network consists of dirt roads and trails, which can be challenging to navigate in inclement weather. Despite this, the transportation network connects the major towns and cities of Nakoosa. Electricity is primarily limited to the largest towns and cities, while running water is available throughout the country during the summer.
The utility infrastructure in Nakoosa primarily focuses on electricity, gas, plumbing, and internet. The electric grid is located in the eastern area of the southern peninsula and covers Portofino, Buckhorn View, Laertes, Trapoli, Petra, and Kozy, providing full power and gas. However, Bavaria and Handiswamp have limited electricity with no gas coverage. Running water is available throughout Nakoosa, and plumbing systems are in place in all towns and cities. As for internet, most areas rely on satellite and cellular networks for connectivity, with limited fiber optic coverage. The cost of utilities is covered through taxation. Internet is avaible in Peter Rice and Portofino.
Nakoosa's transportation system primarily relies on its road network, with the Southern Peninsula having three main wide roads. The Big Loop covers the western parts of the peninsula, while the Small Loop covers the eastern parts. The Nakoosa National Highway 1 is the only paved road in the region, running from the border with the United States past Peter Rice to Portofino. There are five other roads for automobiles, with the rest of the national road system meant for bikes and pedestrians.
In terms of water transportation, two private companies, Bavaria and Laertes Shipping, as well as the Yellow River Shipping Company, run the ferry industries that take passengers across the coastal areas, notably to and from the Southern and Northern Peninsulas. However, Nakoosa lacks any rail or air coverage, which can be a challenge for those looking to travel longer distances or transport goods quickly. Nonetheless, the ferry system is a reliable and popular mode of transportation for both locals and tourists.
The National Hospital of Nakoosa in Peter Rice is the primary healthcare facility for the residents of Nakoosa. It offers a range of medical services, including emergency care, inpatient and outpatient services, and surgical procedures. The hospital is staffed by a team of skilled medical professionals, including doctors, nurses, and support staff. In addition to the National Hospital, there are four other smaller medical centers located throughout the region, which primarily provide first aid services to residents.
Despite the limited number of healthcare facilities, the Nakoosa government places a strong emphasis on the health and well-being of its citizens. The government provides funding for public health initiatives, including vaccination campaigns and disease prevention programs. Additionally, the government encourages healthy living through education and awareness programs, promoting physical activity, healthy eating habits, and regular health check-ups.
Despite these efforts, there are still challenges to accessing healthcare in some remote parts of the region. The lack of transportation infrastructure can make it difficult for residents in rural areas to travel to healthcare facilities. The Nakoosa government is working to address these challenges by investing in telemedicine technologies, which allow residents to access medical consultations remotely. Additionally, community health workers are trained and deployed to provide basic medical care and advice in rural areas.
