The Gaplan Revolution was a conflict between Michael Hubbard and the Federated States of Gapla, ending in a de facto Gaplan victory but a de jure stalemale and prolonged conflict. It was a result of Michael Hubbard banning the Federated States of Gapla in his classroom simply for the reason that he thought it was "dumb." Due to this, Gaplan citizens were not happy and heavily protested this change. While disciplinary action was taken, and the Federated States of Gapla was not allowed to operate on school property, it still very covertly continued to exist and have meetings.

The event was arguably the most dramatic event in Gaplan history. A prominent Gaplan leader, Emma Bunnell, broke into tears after standing up for the country. Emma, alongside several other Gaplans were subsequently honored with awards of bravery and the Order of the Heroes of the Revolution of the Federated States of Gapla.

While Hubbard warned that any continuation of the FSG would result in discipline, no action was taken. Furthermore, the revolution has shaped Gapla as a country and its national identity. Members of Gapla established the organization Hubbard Sucks, and to this day citizens resent Hubbard for his actions in the revolution as well as many other factors.



The Gaplan Revolution was preceded by the teacher's severe favoritism, inaccurate or offensive statements about hand sanitizer, masks, and people who are transgender, as well as a personality viewed as unpleasant.

A document written by members of HS criticizing Hubbard.

Most notably, he was known to call the students he didn't favor by rude names they didn't approve of. This resulted in a perceived impact on several students' behavior and academic grades, as he was known to lose entire essays and deny that they have even turned it in, even after finding them at the end of the year. Several members of HS reported threats that Hubbard issued around parent-teacher-student conferences, and it is known that several of his students from different school years were contacted and known to have mostly opposed him.

He also attempted to bar Gapla from operating, not only from inside his classroom, but throughout the entire school because of his own opinions.

His emotional impact on several students was clear due to his perceived harassment and singling-out of students in discussions. Several students cried in his very own classroom, which was completely out of the ordinary in terms of the students' age, and a student composed a Google document criticizing Michael Hubbard (it was not published). Members have expressed their social and emotional trauma after the incidents of that school year.


De jure, the conflict is ongoing as a stalemate.

However, in practice, the Gaplans were granted many of their demands in exception to a formal surrender, and no side issued an official apology, surrender, or notice of victory. These demands included an implied revert of the ban and the end of persecution of Gaplan citizens. Irrespective of this, Hubbard likely still resented Gaplan citizens.

Members of Gapla would display the Gaplan flag and monthly anniversaries of the revolution as Zoom backgrounds and profile pictures during Emergency Distance Learning in March 2020, and Hubbard failed to take any promised disciplinary action. The Federated States of Gapla still continued to exist, be active, and advance its territory by adding new states (mainly from the Hubbard class). Most notably, Gapla's MicroWiki page was created near the time of the revolution.
