Holloway (IPA: hɑloʊˌweɪ), officially the Kingdom of Holloway is a secessionist micronation that claims territory in Michigan, United States of America. The first and current monarch, King Gabriel I, founded the nation on February 11, 2017. Upon it's foundation, it was a constitutional monarchy, named the Grand Principality of Holloway. After the Royal Hollish Navy captured and annexed an island on the Holloway Reservoir, then Grand Prince Gabriel declared that Holloway would become a Kingdom and be massively reformed.
On 2/11/17, Riley Bauer and Logan Johns established the nation when, on the following day, he learned of the Republic of Molossia. After more research, he decided that a micronation would be a fun project, and, along with his friend, formed the Grand Principality of Holloway. Holloway’s first territorial claim was the King’s estate, as well as it’s surrounding property, which gave them 2.5 acres. The next day, the King and the Prime Minister expressed interest in claiming two islands in the Holloway Reservoir, planning to name them the “Holloway Isle”. However, as the Holloway Reservoir was frozen over at the time, they decided to wait until it thawed to launch the expedition, so they could utilize the newly-formed navy.
In search of serious allies, King Gabriel decided to join the League of Micronations. While Holloway was a member, they made numerous allies, as well as gained recognition from others. A month later, Holloway received a request to join the Republic of Laurencia in their newly-formed United Micronations of the Americas to connect all of the micronations in the macronation of America. They quickly accepted, eager to join Laurencia on their quest. After establishing a few alliances in the LoMN, it was decided Holloway should begin to take more of an active role in the organization . Shortly after, the League of Micronations introduce an inter-micronational currency, the LoMN Numus. Hoping it would benefit Holloway’s economy, it was decided the Numus would become a recognized currency within the nation while trading or interacting with other members of the LoMN.
On 4/05/18, Holloway and Novanglia formed the North-Western Alliance, in order to unite North American micronations and create free trade borders, as well as technological and military assistance. King Gabriel hoped that the NWA would be a mature and serious version of the LoMN, as both King Gabriel and King Stephan had observed many issues with the LoMN. Over time, though, the NWA fell into a state of inactivity, as New Yankeeland started to get more involved in the LoMN. Over time, more and more micronations began to join the alliance, which began to gain the attention of prominent members of the LoMN. Already frustrated with the lack of maturity and stability within the League of Micronations, Holloway withdrew it's membership along with Novanglia. 19 days later, Holloway received an invite to join the Apache Pact, which guaranteed protection and trade to all of its members. Holloway eagerly accepted, once more hoping to establish positive relations with more mature micronationi, especially Apachiland.After having a difficulty deciding how news would be spready, King Gabriel thought it would be a good idea to create a national newspaper, that way citizens and non-citizens alike would be able to stay up-to-date on Hollish events and politics. He decided to name it the "Holloway Times". He planned to release a paper every week. He started looking for citizens to work for the newspaper, but he was met with little interest. He decided to postpone the idea until his coronation.
