Upon establishment, the country annexed the cities of Frankbaden, Wanyestadt, and Mouvelle. On January 11th, 2020, a discord server for the nation was created in response to inactivity. In December of 2019, government agencies were created and a police force was officially ratified by the King in the New Year.
