History

Reign of Cameron I

Main points

The Kingdom of Ikonia was founded by Cameron I on 19 October 2018 after showing interest in a video about micronation Molossia, Cameron believed having a micronation would benefit himself and his family, and wrote the Declaration of Independence[2] on 19 October 2018.

Era of Foundation

The Era of Foundation is dated to begin on 19 October 2018, the day when the Kingdom of Ikonia declared independence from the United States as the Kingdom of Ikonia. HM Cameron I proclaimed himself the nation's first Monarch, and his brother, Troy Koehler was appointed to the Treasury Of Ikonia. The King of Ikonia then wrote basic acts for the treasury, created ministries and so forth. On Friday 7 December 2018, Ikonia's letter of micronations and declaring themselves as a nation was sent to the governor of Florida, Rick Scott.

Diplomatic Era

The Diplomatic Era is dated to begin on 27 December 2018, with the Diplomatic Recognition Ruling being enacted.[4]This caused all treaties and recognition from the Kingdom of Ikonia and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to become null and disaffective.

The first micronation they restarted relations with is the Catholique Socialist Republic, which the President of, Aidan McGrath, was awarded the Order of the Diaconus.

They also recognized the GUM members unilaterally, on 17 January 2019.
