History of Posaf
In late October 2017 the idea was voiced around to start a nation in a group of friends who called themselves the Squamily. The idea became increasingly popular until early November the Squamily began to build a nation, mainly for fun. Although originally for fun it evolved over time into something greater.
The Squamily many had different ideas of what this nation should be, how it should be, and what does it stand for. Under a vote of the people, the decision was split between a presidential republic, and a monarchy, while one abstained. With the mixed results a second vote led to the same results. Eventually, after talks, the decision was made to have an elective Monarchy, with a House of Commons and a House of Lords. With those results, many of the friends agreed the nation would be a better version of the United States, a nation with reformed education, a nation open and accepting social justice warriors to radicals from both sides, and to close the right and left wing divide.
While the government was established with a government many were confused about how it would be run. With a mix of YouTube videos about the British, Canadian, and the United States governments the Squamily created a new system, under an elected ceremonial monarch. With the new government, the Speaker of the House or Prime Minister was called the Higher Lord, moving the spot from the lower house to the upper house. Although in the upper house the two parties with the most seats in the lower house were chosen to the upper house. With the governments being established they picked a provisional government [ahead of foundation] of two people from the Conservative Party, two from Posaf-Green (now Liberal) and one from the now-defunct New Liberals to preside. While the House of Lords had one from Conservative and one from Posaf-Green.
Many Squamily friends were happy about the planning of the events and the pace it was going at so it can be easily prepared. Only a Constitution was set to right, which was written by Nicholas Randouler, Nathan Michaeve, Regan Alifo, Rose Danen, Henry Rydina, Courtney Annalou, Grant Roberave and Justin Donamana. One finished nothing was left to do, except to declare independence
Founders Day and Early History
On Founders Day or Independence Day, the Squamily members declared independence at approximately 8:03 PM EST on January 2, 2018. While only the provisional government was in charge they set dates for the election (January 12) and they selected the acting Monarch, Henry Edwelo or Henry I to be in charge. Along with declaring independence the nation sent e-mails to the United States to declare their independence and sending out more emails to Aerican Empire, Molossia, Sealand, and Talossa. Although they only got e-mails back from the Aerican Empire, and Molossia. Within the short four hours left they set up a website and the next day they spread the word, a school after winter break ended.
With the new nation coming along and finding the presence of MicroWiki and its nations Posaf set up two organizations, the United Micropact which is being revived and the Micronational Olympic Federation with notable members such as Aariania, Iustus, and Ladonia. With suck significant members and the lasting effect of the MOF, Posaf was able to be seen as a stronger nation with creating such a base that id lasting longer than some expected. In the United Micropact, Posaf gained diplomatic ties with the new inactive and fantasized nation of the Principality of Andany and the Kingdom of Falcar which were both later dropped.
As the temporary government was moving well, the citizens decided for an election. They elected Nicholas Randouler, Nathan Michaeve, (Conservative) Delana Jeari-Rydina, and Henry Edwelo (Posaf-Green into the House of Commons, while the New Liberal Party folded into the Posaf-Green Party, and Henry Rydina and Reagan Alfio into the House of Lords. In the election Posaf democratically elected Courtney Annalou into the Monarchical seat, thus having Princess Courtney I. Not to long into her term (3 days) she resigned due to issues with her boyfriend and former Royal Courtney stating, "I cannot rule without him by my side, we just need someone stronger up in charge. Higher Lord, Henry Rydina then became the Monarch in Posaf and is still incumbent to this day, and is seeking reelection. When former Royal Courtney resigned due to the hereditary line of succession, there was no one able to fill the position. Thus meaning former Higher Lord Henry Rydina then became Prince Henry II assuming the position. In which he appointed David Hernandez a liberal activist and ran for one of the seats in the House of Commons but lost. With Hernandez as Higher Lord and Prince Henry II, Posaf grew expediently, opening foreign relations with some of our biggest allies, Iustus, Millania, Phyrria and Quietrock, passing laws and saw the expansion of more provinces such as Essex, Nievenorte and Neu Vaterlands. Hernandez also helped restore the nation after the February–March Floods, which affected all parts of the now province of Squamily. Short into the term for Hernandez, he became badly ill and was told he had two weeks to a week to live. Although he is alive today as the doctors were wrong, he resigned his role giving to Maria Lynnae, the Monarchical House of Lords representative.
During the Lynnae government, Posafian expansionism grew vastly reaching nations of Iraq, and Finland. As Lynnae as the Higher Lord she helped form a coalition government in the House of Commons between the Conservatives and Posaf-Green's to create the Forward Moving Government that helped form new laws, and holidays. Although with a great cooperation on a federal level, in the states disrupt was prominent, which led to the New Reich Crisis in Neu Vaderlands State, and Squamily.
New Reich Crisis
The New Reich Crisis was an secessionist movement in Posaf, in the state of Neu Vaderlands with a small protest in Squamily. The events unfolded was that; Adalard Schneider, a German native that moved to the United States and later became a Posafian citizen who founded the defunct Posafian Nationalists Party. In the movement, the creation of the Posafian Courts was made that was led by the Higher and Lower Lord as the judges. In the event many disputes were held in the Posafian discord server between various people, with most in support of staying as Posaf and some neutrals. After negotiations of trying to help him find new land to start a new micronation, he would refuse and want to take the Posafian land. After a day worth of a court trial Schneider was convicted of treason and banned from Posaf for 90 days, and the government revoked his citizenship ending the Crisis. As of September 3, 2018, the State has become defunct, 4 months into the creation of the state.
After the New Reich Crisis, some say that Posaf slowed down in activity, although it did during and after election times to a very high amount. Posaf elected a Conservative minority Parliament which was officially the first Parliament and had Andy Irons as the first Conservative Party Higher Lord. Also the representation was shown from the New Democrats Party made by Ashley Jaax. During this time the government was seen as active opening relations with larger nations such as Aariania and the Kingdom of Jupiter as well as the Ministry of Culture and Sports helping open a gaming team for the Micronational Olympic Federation and the Virtual Posafian Football League.
Along with an active government during the time there was a dubbed "Splix.io Fever" that lasted for around five days when many of the citizens who are present online played the game as teams for some time, often reaching the top of the leader board. After the time the activity died down and the presence is still alive today with many citizens still active and new ones joining to this day.
