History

As a state

Halstopia joined Secundomia on December 17, 2009. It was lead by H of Halstopia, who had been eager to begin a micronation. Unfortunately, there were problems immediately due to tensions between Secundomian leader Parker I and H. These tensions boiled over as an associate of H lead a coup of the state, and declared independence. The state was immediately dissolved afterwards. H left micronationalism after the incident.

Voitokas

The state of Halstopia re-emerged as a city and proto-state in 2010 as in the new micronation of Voitokas. This nation's existence was meant to be kept a secret from Parker I, however, inside sources lead to the Finland Project exposing Voitokas to the Secundomian Intelligence Agency. Since Voitokas, Halstopia has been inactive as a micronational entity.
