Heimatia, officially the Heimatian Colonial Empire, was a North American micronation founded by Karl Frederick and Mark Terrace in the capital city of Stuhlburg near Dripping Springs, Texas. The Heimatian Colonial Empire has claimed itself a nation, but was not recognized (with the exception of micronational governments) by any national government nor by the United Nations.
The name 'Heimatia' originates from the German word 'Heimat", which means 'Homeland'.
Republic of Heimatia
The Republic of Heimatia was founded on 25 October 2018 together by Karl Frederick and Mark Terrace, who wanted to explore the concept of micronationalism and geopolitics. Heimatia was founded more as a joke nation, having its declaration of independence involving declaring independence from a mythical communist dinosaur nation known as Dinosauria.
The Republic of Heimatia was a one-party state, ruled by the Frederickist Party of Heimatia under President Karl Frederick, who served as the party's chairman.
First Heimatian Colonial Empire
On 22 February 2018, the Republic of Heimatia annexed the Constituent Colony of Guckonia, hence establishing the Heimatian Colonial Empire. Karl Frederick gained the new title of Imperial President, and the Heimatian Colonial Empire entered a new age of expansionism and imperialism.
The first Heimatian Colonial Empire existed until 30 June 2019 when Imperial President Karl Frederick stepped down from power, thus beginning an age known as the Age of Chaos.
Age of Chaos
The Heimatian Colonial Empire splintered into three separate countries that later became known as the Taltrian Imperial Federation, led by Karl Frederick, the Pickle Republic, led by Logan LaChance, and the People's Republic of Mcoolia, led by Mark Terrace.
Early on, the People's Republic of Mcoolia was invaded and conquered by the Taltrian Imperial Federation and the Pickle Republic in a short conflict that became known as the Mcoolian War, which lasted from 15–19 July 2019. As a result of the conflict, the TIF and PR split the territory evenly among the two countries.
Due to tense relations and ideological differences, war broke out between the Taltrian Imperial Federation and the Pickle Republic, which resulted in the Pickle Republic emerging victorious on 3 October 2019, officially reuniting Heimatia into the United Republic of Heimatia, led by President Logan LaChance.
United Republic of Heimatia and the United Heimatian Empire
The short-lived United Republic of Heimatia existed from 3 October 2019 - 21 October 2019. In its early days, an attempted communist takeover was carried out, but was quickly subdued by the Heimatian military. Because of this, President Logan LaChance declared martial law and established a dictatorship that became known as the United Heimatian Empire.
On 23 December 2019, Karl Frederick along with several other Heimatians, who were fed up with the lack of professionalism in Heimatia, staged a coup d'état and overthrew the Heimatian Government. Together, they restored the Heimatian Colonial Empire and formed a new government.
Second Heimatian Colonial Empire
On 7 January 2020, the new democratic government elected Karl Frederick to serve as the first Supreme Chancellor of the Heimatian Colonial Empire, and Logan LaChance was soon appointed Vice Chancellor. The Age of Chaos and micronational warfare as a whole quickly became looked down upon in Heimatia, as it quickly became a respected member of the micronational community and has held itself to high standards. The Heimatian Colonial Empire stands today as a strong advocate for professionalism and value in the micronational community. On 7 January 2021, Supreme Chancellor Karl Frederick was elected to serve a second term, and nominated Vice Chancellor Mark Terrace to serve as his vice chancellor, replacing LaChance. However, Logan LaChance remains as Defense Minister of the Heimatian Colonial Empire and General of the Heimatian Imperial Army.
On 3 August 2021, Supreme Chancellor Karl Frederick resigned the Chancellorship and handed power over the Vice Chancellor Mark Terrace, hence being inaugurated that day.
Due to some controversies, Supreme Chancellor Mark Terrace was ousted and Logan LaChance was inaugurated as the Supreme Chancellor of the Heimatian Colonial Empire on 4 September 2021.
Soon after, Supreme Chancellor Logan LaChance resigned and the Heimatian Colonial Empire was dissolved on Heimatian Independence Day, 25 October 2021.
Politics and government
The Governmnent is divided into three branches: the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial Branch. The Executive Branch consists of the Supreme Chancellor, Vice Chancellor, and his/her cabinet.

The Judicial Branch consists of the Supreme Court, which consists of 3 Justices who are appointed by the Supreme Chancellor.
Law and order

The Heimatian Imperial Army consists of 2 branches, the HIA Ground Force and the HIA Air Force.
