The Kingdom of Wegmat, was the preceding government to the Federal Union of Wegmat, a micronation located in the American state of Illinois west of Chicago in the Western Chicago Micronational Influence Area encompassing most of the Des Plaines Woodland and several suburban houses. The Kingdom of Wegmat was established on 30 November 2018. The monarchy was dissolved in July 2020 and replaced by the Federal Union of Wegmat.
Wegmat doesn’t mean anything and is considered a weird name to most in and outside the intermicronational community. It was generated by Cole B. using a random letter generator until it was pronounceable using Latin letters. Similarly, the name Ridab was renamed as it was a letter scramble of the name of the Weg Family. The name was readopted in the April 4 Acts.
According to the designer, the black represents the people of Wegmat at the top of the flag, white represents the dividing line between animals and humans, and blue represents animals who live off of the Des Plaines River. The star in the green circle connects both of the colors of the tri-band. The green represents the environmental mission of Wegmat to protect animal important to the ecosystem. The star represents the north star, which is one of the only visible stars in the Chicagoland Area due to light pollution. The Kingdom of Wegmat's had a smaller ratio than the Federal Union's flag. The flag is now used as the ensign of the Wegmat Navy
Cole roamed much of their neighborhood, Trailmark, a subdivision in Littleton, Colorado. Cole designated each trail a specific road number. They also designated his house to its own city and built street signs. When Cole also got into the game Minecraft, they created the Republic of Falmont with them acting as the President. During the same time in present-day Bobbygrad, was an area known as “The Ally”. Fighting occurred in the Ally for who to be the King. Vladimir Baruh later rose in “fame and power”.
Wegmat was founded on 30 November 2018 as an absolute monarchy led by a Queen, which recognized animals as citizens. It’s very small constitution was written to designate slight government control However, the nation was quite inactive until late March 2019, when the first (and only) Prime Minister visited the Conch Republic for Spring Break. Soon afterwards, they decided to start drafting a new constitution, as well as encouraging other people to become citizens of Wegmat in the April 4 Acts.
On 4 April 2019, the Constitution draft was passed by the Parliament. Wegmat, formerly a city-state, annexed the North and South provinces. Then they became Essef, Gliffork, New Finland and Cenwister. The country maintained peaceful relations until a citizen named DJ, threatened someone on 6 May. DJ was exiled from the country, then he declared the sovereign “Soviet Country” and declared war on Wegmat. The war had no battles and the situation was solved diplomatically through the treaty of Bobbygrad, on 15 May. The same day New Asia United declared war on Wegmat for signing the Treaty of Bobbygrad. The war known as the Shoe war had 2 battles, in Priory National Park and Bobbygrad. Wegmat pushed their army out on both occasions. On 3 June New Asia United suddenly collapsed. This is where Wegmat joined the Microwiki Community In late June the city in America, that Wegmat is mostly located in, was creating a task force for a deer culling program to control their population, which led Wegmat to adopt the Deer and Other Species Citizenship Status Act. This act was written to ensure protection of deer. Due to the Act, Wegmat acquired new territories on 10 August and boosted the population to the triple digits. The new province named after a passed away dog of the royal family, Hilda, was added.
In September and October 2019 violence suddenly erupts in Bobbygrad again with a gang and the New Wegmat Republic (NWR) terrorist group trying to retake Bobbygrad as “The Ally”. Because of this Bobbygrad erupted into civil war. As the growing fear of war is soon become a reality, the support of the NWR has steadily

declined as soon as Wegmat took the Stevont Pass;  a northern part of Bobbygrad. Most of the NWR soon defected and became citizens of Wegmat and recruited in Wegmat’s military, increasing the size of the Wegmat Armed Forces. The second Minister of Defense also decided to resign from the office from the Ministry of Defense and Parliament as he moved back to the United States. Wegmat had trouble filling the military and political gap but soon the problems were solved when the Minister rejoined the country.
Later, the City and Metropolitan Area of Bobbygrad voted to leave as the Empire of new Germany and declared war on Wegmat. Northwestern Gliffork later got turned into a warzone and Wegmat’s non-lethal army left to join the New German military. Wegmat’s in-provinces culture moved away from a militaristic culture to the Present Day Weg Culture. The Wegmat Foreign Exchange Ministry chose to ignore New German Hostilities. Priory remains under both claims.  Both the Wegmat Authority and New German Military both enforce laws on separate schedules changing control back and forth between both nations.
Wegmat’s Prime Minister had been pushing the nation into more left-wing after the controversies. In March 2020 Wegmat shutdown due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. Travel was restricted between provinces and the United States except for essentials. In April Wegmat officially required face masks in all buildings except households or empty rooms. In may it was reported that they were no confirmed case in Wegmat at all. In mid-may borders were opened up as Wegmat entered “Phase 2” of the lockdown. In May the Des Plaines Union was created with Wegmat as the third member. The Des Plaines Union or DPU is a political, geographic and economic union created by Tommy C. It’s main goal is to keep peace and closer the 6 nations in the area around Wegmat. It’s headquarters is to be build in Des Plaines, Hilda. By Mid June Wegmat entered “Phase 3” of the lockdown and the Out-provinces were completely lifted of restrictions. By this time Manifest Wegstany was mostly realized Parliament passed the Wegmat Territory Expansion Act 2020 where a new Province and 2 territories will be added in protest of stopped road construction that could be a danger to the flow of the Des Plaines River. On July 1 these new territories were added of Hydrove; which is a province, Indians Boundaries Territory and Schiller Territory. July 12-July 28 an Expedition happened Where the Environmental Ministry traveled to the Leftover States of America (Wyoming, Montana, The Dakotas and Idaho.) While Cole was gone Amilie Montant attempted a coup which led to the abolishment of the royal family by Cole. A new constitution was made and the Wegmat became a presidential republic.
