Benjamin, now in a fury, said that he banned all OWOTers from entering his territory and that he won't be accepting visits from the website community. He told this information to his parents, causing his whole family to rise up against the OWOT community. His mother agreed to buy security cameras to detect illegal OWOT refugees who trespass the Gerrian borders, otherwise, Gerria might have to move it's headquarters further out to another place, which would echo the time when Gerria temporarily moved it's headquarters to Galveston Beach House oblast during the Great Water Outage of 2022 (see above for more info).

In the aftermath of the war, the Gerrian government is currently planning on hiring and entering relations with other micronations nearby for help in stopping the OWOT community from winning any further, Cyclodia and the Commonwealth of Dracul are the two best candidates for Gerria to hire within months after the war.
