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.

History

Background

Prior to the Gaplan revolution, Hubbard was noted as being very unfair, having favorites, being unscientific, possibly homophobic, and not taking responsibility for his own actions. This led the Gaplans to create an organization named "Hubbard Sucks," which intensified after the Gaplan revolution.

He was noted for hating Emma Bunnell the most, followed by Wyatt Baek, (although Wyatt Baek claims he was hated the most) and was known for disliking members of Gapla. For example, Tessa Huffmire was relatively favorited until Hubbard discovered that she was involved in Gapla and was friends with Emma.

Hubbard's reason for the favoritism and anti-Gapla motives are unknown and are discussed in a variety of Gaplan conversations.

Result

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.
