One day in 2012 when Sir August was in his house thinking, he had a thought, to start a micronation, so he did, but first he needed a name, he decided on Kaden and then founded the nation. Kaden, in it’s early years, wasn’t very active, only being a small thing in August’s bedroom, nearly forgotten. Then, in 2016, August told his friend about it, and he was into the idea. That friend would become the Chancellor.
The name Käden (pronounced Kahden) is Kaden for... Kaden. The name Kaden was chosen at random for the name of the nation, and was later changed to Käden. It was later discovered that Kaden was going to be the name of the Kaiser’s sister, had she been a boy.
In 2018, August got a discord for the nation, finally opening up the micronation for people to join. It was with the opening of the discord that the nation was able to hold it’s first elections, with the current ruling party coming out on top. This era is also when it opened diplomatic relations with micronations such as The Empire of Roskya and The Grand Kingdom of Matachewan.
On January 13th, 2020, A rebellion broke out in Käden, Monarchists V. Communists. It started when a friend of the Kaiser decided he was fed up with what he and the Chancellor were doing. He then led the rebellion, which would be known as the Brody Rebellion, named after the hill it was fought on. The ensuing battle took place in 2 engagements. The first, communist forces were defeated and put into a retreat into the woods and a nearby field. The second saw the communists forces annihilated, they swiftly surrendered.
In the peace treaty, the communists were allowed to set up their own government and nation called the People’s Republic of Kaden, and non aggression was put into place. However, after a few weeks of stuff not happening, the communist state dissolved and was re-integrated into Käden.
As of now, Kaden has established embassies/consulates in The Grand Kingdom of Matachewan, The Empire of Roskya, The Kingdom of Humberlea, and The Principality of Runnymede. Kaden was also in the Great Lakes Union until it disbanded. Kaden has plans to grow its diplomacy and establish more embassies/consulates in the future.
The dark ages
This was a period in time where the Kaiser was loosing faith, not just in his ability to lead, but Käden‘s ability to continue as a micronation. It only recently came out of this era and is still recovering from it. It has, so far, been the worst period in the nations history.
The Valor is the standard currency of Käden, first introduced in 2018. It comes in 1, 5, 10, 20, 50, and 100 banknotes, denoted by a number followed by a V (1337V).
The Valor coin was, and still is, the currency of Käden, made in 2018 with the creation of the discord.
The Valor Dollar is a new currency set to be introduced later this year, with Nicholas Lokin designing it. So far, only the 1V, 5V, 10V, and 50V banknotes have been created
The army consists of 5 men, 4 enlists and 1 officer. There is no standard issue weapon, but the army dose use an assortment of dart guns.
The navy consists of 2 vessels and 5 men, 3 enlists and 2 officers. One boat, the KNS Miss Liz, is a Chaperral(?) of Unknown class, the second, the KNS St. August, is a modular auxiliary vessel, usually consisting of 2-3 modules
The airforce consists of 1 plane, 2 drones, and 2 men, both of which are officers. The plane is a Cirrus SR22 single prop aircraft, and the two drones are of unknown Class.
