History

William Ranger was originally a micronation named Santos. Santos was founded in June 2011 by William Timothy. Several months later, Santos was embargoed by Los Bay Petros and Indokistan. This resulted in the Santos government being inactive.

On 30 March 2012, William Timothy, the former President of Santos announced that Santos was officially replaced by a kingdom named William Ranger. William also declared himself the King of the new kingdom. The kingdom chose a city in the former part of the 5A called M1 (which later became United Mutiara) as the capital of William Ranger. The kingdom also claims two fictitious regions named Aurelia and Armilandia (formerly named Williamland).

In early 2013, the government of William Ranger started to become inactive. King William, who lost interest to reign as a King declared disestablishment of the Kingdom on 2 April 2013, three days after the first anniversary of William Ranger establishment. After a period of interregnum, William Ranger replaced by a micronation named New Santos.
