The Kingdom of Istoria was founded peacefully on November 5, 2009, by Max Kasbar, who declared himself as King. The current flag was created on November 9.
Land Grab I
On February 4, 2010, Istoria began a spree of territory-grabbing by capturing Duck Isle in Mirror Pond, Manito Park. Their flag was ripped down soon after, and Istoria decided to recapture the island. On May 11, Istoria captured a house and an apartment building, to be reclaimed on the same day by an American. However, Istoria reclaimed it two days later. They also captured Manito Park, but was forced to give control back to America following negotiations. The spree ended on May 14, when Max Kasbar decided to move and give all of Istoria's territory to America. However, the country is planning to move from Spokane, Washington, to San Diego, California, and would begin their land-claiming not even a month later.
On May 26, Istoria launched the Amazon, a rocket, at Hart Field in Comstock, Washington.
Land Grab II
June 10 marked the beginning of Istoria's second land-grab when Istoria claimed Cannon Hill park, renaming it "Valorastan" honoring the currency of the Republic of Molossia, one of their allies. However, Istoria returned the land a week later, which Istoria planned to do, only to claim another piece of land, which they promptly named the Eastern Territories.
This period is notorious for hosting the Istorian-Erusian War, in which Istoria declared war against the Democratic People's Republic of Erusia for no specific reason. The decision was condemned by a few micronations as completely unnecessary, but the war ended on June 23.
On June 20, Istoria restarted its land-claiming by capturing a grassy area in the backyard of the Rockwood Bakery and making it into a military district, called Rockwood. America struck again, however, and took the Eastern Territories. Also, On June 23, Istoria withdrew from the Istorian-Erusian War ; also on that day, Istoria told the Republic of Lakotah that they recognized them.
On June 28, the Army & the Navy were officially complete; also, RIBC (Royal Istorian Broadcasting Company) is founded, & Fort Wagonhall was created in Rockwood Military District, Istoria. On June 29, the northern Rockwood Wall was completed. On June 30, the Calvin & Hobbes Revival Movement (CHRM) is founded, wanting to have the comic strip, Calvin & Hobbes, part of Istorian culture, because that comic book was the king's favorite when he was very young.

On July 11, Mike & Ikes was made the official candy of Istoria. On July 12, Istoria re-claimed the Eastern Territories. Also, on that same day, Istoria moved its capital from Bedville to Desktown. On July 13, Fort Wagonhall disappeared; but on July 22, Istoria invaded Manito Park, as well as getting Fort Wagonhall back. The Third Land Grab ended when Istoria gave Manito Park, & Rockwood Military District back, on August 1rst.

But on August 10, Istoria declared war against the Kingdom of Starland, because they claimed Victoria Land as well, which ended on the same day.

On Nennin 24th (November 1), Istoria peacefully got New Diablo Military District back from KMITB Nation.
