The land of the Secundomian sector had been through much change before it's micronational inception. Originally the land was controlled by native american tribes in the great plains. The area was passed through the hands of multiple european countries before becoming part of the United States of America. The land was reassigned into the Territory of Kansas, which eventually became the State of Kansas. The Secundomian Sector land area was fought over in the Civil War between Kansas and Missouri. Kansas won over the area. With Kansas controlling the area, one of the first micronations was reported operating in Johnson County in January 2009. The Kingdom of Coleraine (hUlaidh Thair Nhua) is the first micronation reported operating in the area, besides Uantir in Leavenworth County. In a peroid approximately in the middle of 2009 Parker I, who would become the founder of the Kingdom of Secundomia, first read of micronations on wikipedia. He did not consider too deep into the venture, however.
The era preceding the adoption of presidents was an era of chaos in the Republic of Secundomia. It began with the decision to found micronations.
Decision Period (December 12-13, 2009)
[[File:Aericaflag.jpg|thumb|Secundomia was inspired by the Aerican EmpireThe idea for Secundomia began on December 13, 2009, when Parker I and Spencer I were inspired after reading about micronations such as the Conch Republic, Molossia, and the Aerican Empire. At first they planned on joining Aerica, but Spencer suggested that they create their own micronation.
Pre-Republic Period December 14-15, 2009
The Pre-Republic period is the first time Secundomian Sector micronations began to appear. These two nations, the Republic of Skillz and the Kingdom of Secundomia, were both formed by Spencer I and Parker I.
Spencer was the first to found a nation, the Republic of Skillz, on December 14, 2009. Spencer founded Skillz on the playground of his elementary school. Spencer I was quickly made president and at its peak, it had six citizens.
Parker I was not told of its existence until the next day, shortly before the founding of the Kingdom of Secundomia on December 15.Parker I founded Secundomia as a reaction to the Republic of Skillz, and planned to declare war on Skillz. Parker had planned to found Secundomia with Spencer on December 13th, however, he was waiting until he had come up with a suitable name. War was declared on the 15th before Spencer had returned from school. When Spencer returned, Parker was informed of Skillz's collapse.
Merger Period December 15-17 2009
The Republic of Skillz collapsed on December 15 and its two remaining citizens merged with the Kingdom of Secundomia, to form the Republic of Secundomia the next day. Secundomia grew to a population of six but the state of Halstopia left the nation on December 18 with all its members. American lead was restored shortly after in Halstopia.
Post Merger Period December 17-31 2009After the fall of Halstopia, rivals Parker I and Luke of Secundomia struggled for power and Secundomia was caught in the middle.
Early Republic Era
Split Presidential Period January 2010
After huge fights during the first elections of Secundomia, Luke and Parker I decided to split presidency, and became co-presidents. In the January 2010 Secundomian elections, the fight between Parker I and Luke grew stronger, as Skillz founder Spencer I and Parker ran on a joint ticket for co-presidency. Luke fought a tough battle claiming that Spencer and Parker were attempting to run a dictatorship but to no avail as Parker I and Spencer I won the elections. Luke alleged that this was simply because Secundomia was full of Spencer's friends but the new presidents denied the claim.
Brothers Period January 31st, 2010-February 25th
During this period, both Parker I and Spencer I ran the nation. Amid disputes from Luke as to who was the actual leader, they were able to pass a large amount of legislation due to their close correspondence. Parker I lead most of the discussions in the nation, while Spencer provided a balance between his side of the nation and Parker's, which before were in conflict. Midway in February Luke and Parker formed an alliance, thereby unifying all three branches of the nation. A resolution was signed by the two presidents of Secundomia stating that after the next elections, only one president would be allowed power. Spencer I and Parker I both ran for president in these elections. According to Spencer, Parker I had lost favor due to being president for a long time. Spencer's voting block heavily weighed in upon Spencer, despite a possible schism as Ibrahim I ran Independent. Spencer was declared victor.
Golden Days (Late Brothers Period) February 25th 2010-March 4th 2010
Restructuring Era March-April 2010
Spencerian Period March 2010Secundomian Congress. After a short dispute with the leader of Atlan, Atlan was redefined as a separate nation, geographically and culturally distinct from the Republic of Secundomia. Another yet-to-be-named state was put in it's place for the leader of Atlan to maintain presence in Secundomia. As a presidential collaboration with Parker I, Middle Secundomia annexed Pine County, Long County, Snow Hill County and Backwoods County, located to the south of Middle Secundomia city. The March elections took place, and the formerly loyal Spencerian voting block split it's votes among Luke and Parker I. The reasons for this may have been public disapproval of Spencer I's policies. Ultimately, Parker I received the most votes from every voting block, and took power in April.
Cabinet Crisis April 2010
Main article: Cabinet Crisis (Secundomia)
When Parker I appointed his presidential cabinet, he caused unsettlement among citizens about his choices. Eventually, Parker I was pressured into changing the decisions but some citizens, including Ibrahim I, were still not content. Ibrahim's protests got violent, and allegedly violated Secundomian Law. Parker I prosecuted Ibrahim, and put him on trial, the first trial in Secundomian history.
After the trial of Ibrahim I, an inactive citizen, the Empress of Atlan, returned to activity and defended the President. The Protest Group began harassing her. Many of Protest sympathizers began to grow distrustful of the Protest Group. These sympathizers now aligned themselves with the president. They included Spencer I and Luke of Secundomia. The Protest Group began targeting them as well.
As the harassment began to grow worse, many of Secundomia's citizens, including the President and Citizen's Council, voted to exile Protest leader Rahim I temporarily. Ibrahim I was given a warning. Soon Ibrahim and Rahim both apologized.
Mid-Republic Era June 2010-December 2010
During the second half of 2010 conflict calmed down in Secundomia, unfortunately, with that came dormancy, which threatened the existence of the micronation. Many attempts were made to resolve this issue from within, and although Secundomia remained active internationally, these attempts were made in vain.
Shadows of April: May-June 16 2010
After the Cabinet Crisis, a relative peace overcame Secundomia. However, the political process soon threatened the newfound peace. The May 2010 Election primaries resulted in clear winners, however independent candidates lead to controversy during the election. This resulted in the election's postponment into June, after the supposed president should've been sworn in. Spencer became interim president between then and June 8. The elections were once again postponed after a tie. Ibrahim I proposed that Rahim I should be able to choose the President because he was expelled from Secundomia before the Elections, though the proposal was soundly rejected by the interim president. The office of president was officially vacant between June 8th and June 16th as a result of further election difficulties. Eventually Parker I won the final runoffs and assumed the office in the 16th.
Dormancy and Revivial: Summer 2010
During the late summer, Luke appointed his cabinet, and other government positions. Unfortunately, after he did, Secundomia once again slipped into inactivity.
International Honor: September 2010
In September 2010, Secundomia was honored in a Slinky Air Show, and began developing a language, but most of the nation remained dormant. Elections were conducted and in the Conservative Primaries four candidates were nominaetd - Skillz founder Spencer I, infamous Protest Group Leader Ibrahim I, Kingdom founder Parker I, and then-President Luke - and the primaries ended in a victory for Luke with Ibrahim I conceding defeat. However, Spencer decided to form his own party, Spencer's Super Awesome Party of Super Awesomeness or the "Libertarian Party", and Parker I decided to run as an Independent. Parker I experienced a surge of votes from liberal voters, unhappy with the distant Conservative Party candidate, and subsequently won the election. During the September Elections, Lower Secundomia was merged with Middle Secundomia due to it's failure to conduct gubernatorial elections. Bu Ocajin also collapsed and reorganized into Merreneitoja while Southern Cipania became a territory.
Dormancy Again: November-December 2010
In the very late months of 2010, Secundomia went through a period of inactivity. First the Olympics were cancelled, due to technichal issues and low participation level. Secundomia was soon upon it's 1 year anniversary. Unfortunately, it was not celebrated largely, due to inactivity of citizens. It was this inactivity that Parker I wanted to destroy, and he did in the next period.
Late Republic Era 2011-2012
The Secundomian Republic was on the downturn in 2011, as a result of lack of activity from it's members, and failing leadership, however the year began with promise.
Space Program: Early January 2011In late 2010, Parker I resolved to "inject"activity into Secundomia. Soon he proposed a two step plan to fulfill his resolve. Activity skyrocketed in Secundomia, especially with the Space Program. Project Dove was under intense development, and Project Eagle launched one rocket already, with another waiting for launch. The Second Eagle remains waiting for launch to this day, and inactivity unfortunately continues.
Political Breakdown: Early 2011
Soon the January 2011 elections were on the rise. These elections were a harsh competition between incumbent Parker I (seeking his last term before a break), and challenger Spencer I. Support in Secundomia had shifted upon Spencer I, so the elections would be tough again. Parker attempted to gain voters across the Conservative-Liberal border, while Spencer attempted to rally his support away. Eventually it came down to political activity. The votes were held over the weekend on the last day of January, however, only two citizens officially registered their vote. The vote was split, one supporting Parker, the other Spencer. Spencer then contested the validity of the election, claiming his vote had not been counted. The Election committee maintained that Spencer had not officially registered his vote, beyond claiming his intent. Spencer argued that he announced his intent during the weekend, and that the election committee had ignored him. This controversy continued into early February. As the elections had not been resolved, and Parker I's term had ended, Secundomia was officially without presidency, and lead only by the incomplete congress. The Congress, however, did not vote upon any interim president. A vote was shortly held. Parker managed to rally enough active citizens to vote, and won the election 3-1.
End of the Republic: Mid 2011-2012
The short active period was followed by more inactivity. Internal activity was not restored for a long period. Parker I seized power in June 2011 after the senate and cabinet were dissolved as inactive. He was not met with much resistance. External activity in international relations was still booming, as Parker maintained a level of activity on that front.
2012 brought little in the way of activity, at least internally. The Republic of Secundomia officially ended in May 2012 and became a part of the Eran Federation in order to potentially foster activity.
Eranian Era: May-December 2012
Main article: Eranian Secundomia Secundomia joined Eran in May 2012 to restructure and reinvigorate the nation. This failed, as even Parker I found himself drifting away from the micronational community. It also became clear to many in the Federation that their goals were not being reached, and that the disintegration of the Federation was inevitable. Secundomia withdrew in December.
Silent Era: December 2012-May 2015
Secundomia had been entirely run out of options and abandoned by it's former leaders. Parker I remained the only member of an unorganized nation.
Limbo: December 2012-August 2014
Main article: Post-Eran Secundomia
After Eran, Secundomia was left with no support, and essentially ceased to exist. No projects or interest were carried out during this period of almost two years.
Second Kingdom: August 2014-May 2015
Main article: Reformed Kingdom of Secundomia
In 2014 an attempt was made to re-establish the nation of Secundomia into a Kingdom. This was short lived, and failed. Parker I was unable to establish the nation out of the ashes, and it returned to dormancy for another year.
Rebirth Era: May 2015-Present
Two attempts have been made in 2015 to re-establish Secundomia: the Third Kingdom and the Second Republic.
Third Kingdom: May 2015-August 2015
Main article: Third Kingdom of Secundomia The Third Kingdom was a nationalist attempt for revival, in order to preserve the culture and history of Secundomia. However, once again this attempt was jettisoned quickly.
Second Republic: August 2015-Present
Main article: [[Democratic Republic of Secundomia The Democratic Republic of Secundomia is the current iteration of the micronation, which was formed as a result of the abdication of King Parker I and the coalition of two new revolutionary political parties which aimed to establish a transitional, socialist government.
