The Jacobean era is the period within Baustralian history, coinciding with the reign of John I, and includes the founding of the kingdom, its constitutionalizing, and the Baustralian Conquest.

Events

On 20 June 2017, Baustralia was formed by John I, naming himself Jacob I. From this time, John Timpson acted as his regent. This was a simple absolute monarchy and consisted of his and Timpson's house. Later, a 19-acre property was claimed and brought opposition from the property owner's son. They then revolted and started the Battle of Tentacion Creek. Fighting this was the Baustralian militia, a naval paramilitary organized by the King.

Upon its declaration of independence, the capital had to be moved to Cascadia, now located in Holderton. This also allowed a group of politicians, led by Timpson, to persuade the King into forming a Parliament and changing the government into a constitutional monarchy. Timpson was appointed Prime Minister, and then elected in 2018.

Baustralia and Tentacion, the two micronations in the area caused some people to become micronationalists, who then wanted a piece of Baustralia. This led to many battles, known colloquially as the Baustralian Conquest. Much later, two naval officers made a hoax about a communist party looking to poison the monarch, then take the throne, and henceforth the land. This ended up being a distraction for the Rmhoanian referendum.

Also, a series of conflicts have happened involving John I and Aidan I. Two dominions were given to Baustralia by Aidan. The Fox Islands as a gift, and Kapreburg as part of a plan to cause a battle or conflicts between himself or someone else. A notable example of this is the 2019 Kapresh constitutional crisis, where McGrath, as acting President gave all the land to Baustralia. This was done to cause tension between John and Jack Morris, the elected President.

After the election of Nick Sullivan, inactive Members of Parliament were removed, Aidan McGrath was given Persona Non Grata status, and all Paloman citizens were given the option to give up either their Baustralian or Paloman citizenship. One stayed, and two left. In addition, a rebellion rose in Parliament against the monarchy with the intent to take over the throne. Such members were tried, removed, and discharged from the Baustralian Armed Forces. In a counter from the rebellion, John I was tried for high treason and criminal mischief, but the case was dropped after quoting Charles I of England to every question, "Under what authority does this court have to try me?" He also dissolved Parliament for a day to reform it to prevent another uprising, loosely quoting Charles II of England, saying "Can one here even think without such horror? The whole world knows that we are in the midst of civil war, and with many of my members in the rebellion, this won't work. I declare Parliament dissolved so that I can reform it in a manner without rebellion."
