The Kingdom of Befshire is a micronation founded on the 31 of August 2016 by King Kai I.


The Kingdom was formed in response to an unsettled group of friends after the announcement of Brexit in 2016. The name 'Befshire' came from the misspelling of Bedshire (as in the English county of Bedfordshire) Which was being researched for personal reasons by founder and King Kai I.



The British Isles was divided in the 2016 Brexit referendum, and the foundation of the Nation was conceptualized with the announcement of the pull from the European Union, this was done by King Kai I, in response to his inability to vote due to him being under the voting age in the UK.


The Kingdom was formed by a group of 6 people after the conceptualization; the subsequent year period was a quiet one for the kingdom, with the founders concentrating on their studies, The only notable event was the declaration of war on Panama, which was brought to peace in the Reformation on September 2017.


Due to a lack of activity in the previous year, the Kingdom had gone forgotten about it. The king, Kai I, decided that some work was needed. This came with the following 3 months becoming a period of extreme activity in which many organizations were formed and put to use.
