The Kingdom of Pibocip was founded on 12 July 2000 by Prince Phillip Joseph Pillin. The first monarch of Pibocip, Her Majesty Queen Anita, was installed after the foundation of the nation in 2000 and reigned until her death in 2005. She was succeeded by her son-in-law, Prince Philip Joseph Pillin as King Philip in 2005. Dating back to the early 2000s, the Kingdom of Pibocip may have the distinction of being the oldest continuously active micronation in the U.S. state of Ohio.

The Kingdom of Pibocip is a constitutional monarchy with the King being the head of state of the nation. As a constitutional monarchy, the nation follows absolute primogeniture with the monarch being succeeded by their first born child. The current King of Pibocip is His Majesty King Philip Joseph Pillin who became the monarch in 2005 following the passing away of her mother and Queen Anita, who was the first monarch of Pibocip and had reigned between 2000 and 2005.
Originally, The Kingdom of Pibocip did not follow an absolute primogeniture line of succession, but more of a quasi-seniority, in which the successor to the throne was to be the next oldest member of the Pibocian Royal Family. This is why, as the now oldest member of the family, Philip Joseph Pillin of Pibocip ascended to the throne in 2005 succeeding his mother-in-law the late Queen Anita. This practice has since been changed to become an absolute primogeniture line of succession.
The current heir apparent is Crown Prince Phillip Pillin who also serves as the Minister of Home Affairs of the nation. The next in line to the throne is his son, Prince Phillip Joseph Pillin who also serves as the Minister of Foreign Affairs.
