History of Los Bay Petros
Los Bay Petros is the 6th micronational project by Adriansyah Yassin Sulaeman. Before the Federal Republic of Los Bay Petros was founded, five other micronations were founded by Adriansyah Yassin Sulaeman. Previously, there were:
- Republic of Valdezia
- Republic of Mezilistan
- Krakozhian Federation
- Petrovakian Federation
- Petrolistan (only lasted for 1 day, Oct 13th - Oct 14th, 2009)
Petrovakian Federation Era
In January 2009, Adriansyah Yassin Sulaeman with Agung Abdul Azis founded the Petrovakian Federation. Petrovakia itself is a micronation who was influenced by Russian government. At that time, the cabinet consisted of only 10 people. The country had no women, due to the women in the area allegedly intimidating the boys every day and created the anti-Petrovakia faction so called National Women Movement or NWM. As a result, the cabinet declared war on them and causing hatred between Petrovakia and NWM. At that time, Petrovakia was consisted by 25 administrative regions or "Republics". Petrovakia adapted Russian Languange as the national language alongside Indonesian and English.
On February 2009, conflict between Petrovakia and the National Women Movement occured. The leader of the organisation, declared war on the Petrovakian Federation for an unknown reason. The war lasted for only one hour. In the initial attack, the Petrovakian Army was almost forced to surrender. But by the end of the war, the Petrovakian Army, with the help of the Petrovakian people, pushed back the LPG army and they were forced to surrender.
And as today, all of the Petrovakian territories remains to the control of Los Bay Petros.
Los Bay Petros Era
On October 13 2009, Agung Abdul Azis resigned due to the First LPG
War and his desire to retire from micronationalism. The president then decided to dissolve Petrovakia, and established a new micronation - the present Los Bay Petros. The new micronation of Los Bay Petros itself will control all of the ex-Petrovakian territory. Adriansyah, with the help of Adly Nurfikriansyah and Andhika Rama, came up with new names for the country. These were:
- Los Arebelos (Adly Nurfikrianyah's idea)
- Bay (Andhika Rama Prakasa's idea)
- Petrolistan (Adriansyah Yassin Sulaeman's idea)
(Note: The bold words are the name of the new country.)
On 12.10pm (+7 UTC), the three of them declared the foundation micronation after signing the
New Petrovakia Treaty, with Adriansyah Yassin Sulaeman as the first President of Los Bay Petros, Adly Nurfikriansyah became the Vice president, and Andhika Rama Prakasa as the first Prime Minister of Los Bay Petros.
The news of the foundation spreads rapidly in the Dagen-Madinah state, which created some of the Dagen-Madinah residents to apply for their citizenship. The citizen arises to 5 in the end of the year, and reaches 25 in April 2010. The post-interim government choose Newark City as the capital of Los Bay Petros, and divide the old Petrovakian territories into 4 different states (Western Los Bay Petros, Gaskan, New Pershing, and Dagen-Madinah).
Government and LBPOM
LBPOM, or the Los Bay Petrosian Opposition Movement is a rebellion group who declared themselves anti-Los Bay Petros and their mission is to takeover the current government of Adriansyah Yassin Sulaeman between 2009-2010. Founded by Revi Alfianto and with his associates on December 2009 in Dagen-Madinah Protecorate, the movement causing chaos and sparked a civil war in February 2010.
The long-time hatred between the two factions has been occured since the movement estabilshed. On December 7 2009, Revi Alfianto, Adly Nurfikriansyah and another seven ministers rebelled against the republic. They called for the National Army to capture the President, Minister of Education and the Prime Minister. President Adriansyah Yassin Sulaeman declared a State of Emergency and there were fears that it could have developed into a civil war. This uprising caused havoc in the Dagen-Madinah Protectorate and the president dissolve the first cabinet to secure the ministers seats from the rebbelion.
Between the uprising and civil war or December 2009 to February 2010, the LBPOM starting to recruit more members to strengthen their movement and influences of anti-LBP. The LBPOM begins to vandalize and damaging the governmental properties such as the border sign, the roadsigns, and also their started to make a grafitti texting the word was insulting the government. Being the second largest organisation in Los Bay Petros below the Civil's Welfare Party, they started their plan to overthrown the government.
On February 2010, three months after the National Uprising and the long time of hatred between the two factions, the rebels' Second-in-Command began to provocate some civilians to demonstrate against the government. The first demonstration took place on 10 February. Following this, Vice President Rama resigned. The next day the Los Bay Petros Army attempted to stop the movement but were not successful.
On 15 February, the demonstrators started disobeying the authorities and threw the country into anarchy. As a result, the President declared a State of Emergency. Half of The National Army supported the Rebels, with Raka Hadhyana, Adly Nurfikriansyah and another half of National Army, while the other half supported the government.
On February 16, the Government began discussing the idea of a peace treaty with the rebels to avoid further disruption. The next day, both the President and the leader of the rebel movement signed a peace treaty to end the civil war. Adly Nurfkriansyah was chosen to became the Vice-President once again.
Second LPG War
On 14 January 2010, the Petrovakian-era rebel or "terrorist" organisation LPG (GPN) launched a sudden attack on the President when he and the Cabinet were travelling to a meeting in the afternoon. A counterattack was launched by the Los Bay Petros Armed Forces, attacking the LPG Army with paper missles and Aqua-1 Missiles. Approximately 20 paper missiles were launched, resulting in the LPG Army being defeated for the second time in the Petrovakian era since their first attack.

In March 2011, a new state called "Ding-Ding-Dong" was established on Los Bay Petrosian land by the associates of My Party and the ex-minister Andi Rafli. Ding-Ding-Dong was separatist, aiming to break away from the Federal Republic after their proposal to replace the
Ding-Ding-Dong claimed the northeastern Dredim area and placed their capital there. As a result, the prime minister Indrawan Prasetyo condemned the action and proposed an agression pact No. 1 to the National Legislative Council. The members of the NLC immediately approved the proposal and sent 221 Brigade 1 Conscript to attack the rebel base near Dredim.
The leader of Ding-Ding-Dong was told that they would be attacked by the Los Bay Petrosian Armed Forces, and under the leadership of Indrawan Prasetyo and the Ding-Ding-Dong commander Andi Rafly the two sides decided to settle the war virtually in order to prevent any realistic losses. On 20 March 2011, Ding-Ding-Dong surrendered after suffering heavy losses on each battle in the game. As the aftermath, the government decided to disband My Party to join the 2011 Elections.
Even after their nation was brought down by the LBPAF, Ding-Ding-Dong still had a spirit to break up from Los Bay Petros. On April 2011, a new state called "Sjaffel" established on Los Bay Petrosian land by the associates of My Party and the ex-minister Andi Rafli, as a replacement of Ding-Ding-Dong. The Ding-Ding-Dong appeared to be the separatist and wants break out from the Federal Republic after their proposal to took cabinet seats was not accepted by the government.

regions who was Los Bay Petros is the legitimate claimer. The war declaration made by the Sjaffel on Thursday April 28 2011, and the Los Bay Petrosian government are replying their war declaration with the demand the Sjaffel must surrender because their can be compared to the LBPOM.
Sjaffel finally claimed the northeastern Dredim area and place their capital there. As a result, the LBPAF, LBPIA, and LSF is learning their power by sending LBPIA agent, (DAGGER).

On July 2011, the leader of Fiharaya, Omar Laode cut off its relations with Los Bay Petros after accusing Adriansyah Yassin Sulaeman mocking him without any envidence revealed enough. This information also comes out from the leader of Indokistan, Farhan Abbas. Which creating more and more disappointment from the president because the information comes out from other people, not a Los Bay Petrosian. And after Adriansyah speaks in public via LTV to condemn the Fiharayan actions, Omar angrily said that Adriansyah is a Public liar.

But again, Jaankecil stood for a while in the hands of Kossian Empire after a revolution sparked in the region and decides to re-establish UMSSR.
Inactivity and collapse
In early September 2014, during Madyaraksa forming with its counterpart Indokistan, Los Bay Petros suddenly cuts all communication and recalled all of its delegation from the talks. It turns out that the authority also did the same on all of their outlets of communication to the intermicronational world, starting their inactivity.
Attempts on contacting members of Los Bay Petros were fruitless, with informations finally published in January 2015 cleared the speculations. In 18 January, Indokistani Cussex governor Rayhan Haikal accidentally met Adriansyah Yassin Sulaeman in Jakarta, Indonesia, yet failed to informed on the latest situation inside Los Bay Petros. Another encounter with Indrawan Prasetyo in 25 January finally answered speculations, by confirming that the country was indeed inactive.
Association of Indonesian Micronations, bothered by Los Bay Petrosian inactivity that causing problems inside their bureaucracy, ratify a resolution to end Los Bay Petrosian membership inside the organisation in February 2015, with its deadline in March. With no Los Bay Petrosian delegates ever attend AIM general assembly to defy the resolution, Los Bay Petros finally lost its membership status inside AIM in March 2015. The resolution ended international recognition of Los Bay Petrosian government, and indeed its country existence.
