Background

Ever since the dissolution of the Kingdom of Ristabbita King Reuben I wished to establish another sovereign state (micronation).

Establishment of The Kingdom of Salanda

After a long period of nothing happening, King Reuben I founded Salanda on the 22nd June 2018 which was his 13th Birthday. He proclaimed the establishment of the Kingdom of Salanda and that it was to be an absolute monarchy with him as the King. It had 1 citizen being himself.

Absolute Monarchy Period

From the 22nd of June 2018 to the 1st of November 2020, the Kingdom of Salanda was an absolute monarchy. A few days after establishment King Reuben I decided to base his new Sovereign State (Micronation) on his Minecraft world, although he did claim the property that he lived on as part of The Kingdom of Salanda, swaying it away from the grasp of Simulationism. He then decided to make the Kingdom of Salanda into the Empire of The Kingdom of Salanda. After this, Salanda experienced major growth and a citizen. However, the citizen proclaimed the Republic of Tuse resulting in a small war that Salanda won. It let Tuse break away, however, it still retained its absolute monarchy. When the next citizen of Salanda joined in late October 2020 they demanded the end of the absolute monarchy. The Empire of The Kingdom of Salanda in exchange they would vote for King Reuben I to be the first Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Salanda.

Great Reshuffle and Democracy Period

On the 1st November 2020, the Empire of The Kingdom of Salanda was dissolved and Salanda went back to being the Kingdom of Salanda. The absolute monarchy then came to an end. On the 2nd November 2020, the basic foundation laws were established and a democracy with a constitutional monarchy was established, with King Reuben I being the first Prime Minister of The Kingdom Of Salanda in the 2020 Salanda elections.

1st Government of The Kingdom of Salanda

To help form the first government of Salanda with King Reuben as Prime Minster, Tuse Rejoined Salanda with the government being made up by King Reuben I and Tusean delegates. The new government was established on 1 November 2020. Under the first government of Salanda, Salanda experienced major economic growth and developments as well as establishing relations with other micronations. Under the 1st Government of Salanda, the Kingdom of Salanda became very stable and experienced an influx of citizens, however, Tuse wanted to be independent again leading to the government being dissolved on 19 June 2021. On the same day, elections were held and Solomon K defeated King Reuben I to become the 2nd Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Salanda and the 2nd Government of The Kingdom of Salanda which was formed on the 20th June 2021.
