The Long Island War was a micronational conflict between the West Long Island Coalition and Tesforia and its allies. The conflict began on 8 October 2021, when the West Long Island Coalition declared war on Tesforia.

Background

The West Long Island Coalition was formed on 18 August 2021 following a period of animosity by the western nations towards their eastern counterparts, specifically regarding expansive claims made by the proposed Islipian Empire, which claimed up to an estimated 6.75% of Long Island's landmass. This however, is considered minimal compared to other factors that led to the cause of the war, as the Islipian Empire had little to no contact with Ausverian leadership.

2021

The war began at 12:00 EST on 8 October 2021 when the Western Long Island Coalition declared war on the nations of Eastern Long Island[1]. Hours later at 17:26 the Republican Dictat of Lake Ronkonkoma declared war on the Western long Island Coalition.

Englican intervention

A day later, the United Royal Republic of Englica, an ally of Tesforia, declared war on the coalition and joined the war on Tesforia's side.[2] They claim to hold land on Long Island in the form of the Feathers and Gills Governate. In the declaration, prime minister Joseph Young and stressed that they had the obligation to protect their ally and their own territory from the hostile West Long Island Coalition.

Operation Fall Gelb

Operation Fall Gelb (English: Case Yellow) was an Ausverian military campaign in Eastern Long Island to raid and capture as much territory as possible from the People’s Republic of Tesforia, Dictat of Lake Ronkonkoma and the Islipian Empire.

Islamic Rebels in Todt Hill

On 29 November 2021, a group of Todt citizens of ethnic Turkish background declared independence from Todt Hill to form the "Caliphate of Staten Island". The Caliphate has shown hostility to both Todt Hill and Ausveria and is active near the Todt capital of New Lavallette as well as within the sphere of influence of the Ausverian Province of Neu Memelland. On the 30th of November a series of skirmishes occurred between the 1st Infantry Division of Todt Hill and CSI forces near border with the Ausverian province of Neu Memelland resulting in a Todt victory.

Surge in Militant activities

By November first the number of militants surged to seven and on November second another skirmish occurred between Todt forces and the CSI resulting in a CSI victory. Following the victory on November second the Caliphate of Staten Island for the first time laid claim to Ausverian territory stating they have control of the majority of the territory claimed as part of Neu Memelland.

2022

Battle of Massapequa

On 8 January 2022 at 1:30pm, a battle took place in the Massapequa Forest Preserve near a frozen swamp. The battle began with Sean Mankowich shooting Fredrick M. in the chest with a BB pistol, who then cut Mankowich's hand with a rifle bayonet. The battle proved to be indecisive.

Collapse of Todt Hill

On January 31st 2022 the Federal Republic of Todt hill officially dissolved with much of it's territory being annexed by the Staten Island Caliphate with the exception of New Lavallete which became a semi autonomous region of Ausveria.

Ceasefire between Ausveria and Ronkonkoma

On March 24th 2022 the leaders of Ausveria and the Republican Dictat of Ronkonkoma reached a ceasefire due to the Lavian Secession Crisis affecting Ausveria with Sean Mankowich stating "The Republican Dictat of Lake Ronkonkoma would like to formally declare it's formal support of the pacification of degenerate, heretical, and recidivist elements in Ausveria and that the Dictat will give full diplomatic and military support to Ausveria against the Islamists attempting to spread a violent religion within the rightful Ausverian territory of Neu Memelland"

Continuation War

Dictat of the RDLR stands over the recently claimed and occupied Malusian capital state of Novum.

Following the conclusion f the war, on May 9th, 2022, the leaders of Ausveria and the Republican Dictat of Lake Ronkonkoma jointly declared a state of war against the Confederation of Malus. The operation which followed involved the occupation of the Malusian districts of the Autonomous Satanic Region of Malus, which was claimed by Ausveria, and Novum, which was claimed by the Republican Dictat of Lake Ronkonkoma. Several hours after the announcement of hostilities; the Federation of Klausland announced it's entry into the war on the side of Ausveria and the RDLR. The Confederation of Malus responded in an address, stating, "There is clear religious subtext in this war. Three Christian micronations deciding to engage in a hostile takeover of their peaceful Satanic neighbor. This should not be something that is tolerated in the micronational community, however it is." The continuation war became known as the Veterans Park War.

Controversy

Naming debate

Whether or not the war would be called the "Great Long Island War" or just the "Long Island War" was a topic debated between the warring factions. Ausveria, notably, preferred the "Great Long Island War" name, stating that most micro nationalists who recognized the conflict called it that, and that until another conflict on the island arose the name should be that. Some micronationalists argued that while other micronations called it the "Great Long Island War," doing so was inappropriate because those micronations lacked influence in the wider micronational community. [citation needed]

South Shore of Long Island

At the start of the conflict, Ausveria and Todt Hill declared war upon several micronations on the South Shore of Long Island (specifically, Greater Islip, micronations in the Sayville Sector, and Tesforia). Greater Islip and the Sayvillian nations refused to acknowledge the war's existence and avoided involvement in the conflict, though informal diplomatic overtures were made on their part to end the war over fears of reputational damage. The effectiveness of such overtures is debatable, though the Greater Islipian and Sayvillian governments have avoided mentioning the conflict publicly. Moreover, the same governments have never issued formal responses to the declaration of war against them.

International response

The State of Faltree is declaring its neutrality in the conflict currently underway on Long Island. It is unfortunate that Ausverians must be pitted against Tesforians, but there is little Faltree can currently do to help mitigate the situation. However I may add, any attempts by either side to threaten the sovereignty of Breuckelen shall be responded to accordingly.

  • Nexan Sigil.png Nexan Republic - On 9 October 2021, the Leader of the Nexan Republic, Desslok V. Nafage made a statement following the coalition's declaration of war.

Its an extremely simulationist and pathetic 'war' declaration. Ausviria[sic] was once an enemy of The Nexus after they refused to cease their persecution of Daniel Maloney. It was only after evidence of them using racist slurs against friends of mine and the reddit sector standing up against other individuals targeting him did he stop. On top of that, They have the audacity to call Allies of The Nexus (especially in a dispute that we got dragged into) 'nobodies', I don't know about You but that is extremely ironic when people are calling them irrelevant in the comment section. We have been more than happy to uphold the permanent suspension of relations between our two nations, As we have no intention of changing that stance.

— Desslok V. Nafage

The Meanwealth of Gasconade supports the efforts of the Ausverian Volksrepublik and the West Long Island war coalition. However, Gasconade will not join the war, choosing to diplomatically support Ausveria's efforts rather than militarily.

  •  Wegmat - On October 22, the Wegmat Foreign Exchange Ministry released a statement.

Wegmat will not get directly involved in the War however Wegmat already dislikes Ausveria due to Cole Baird's Anti-defamation Policy and heavily sympathises with Tesforia. As Tesforia is a member of the UDCTC, an organization which Prime Minister Cole Baird is lead advisor to allies forces, Wegmat is likely to assist Tesforia through this organization.

  •  Malus - On 15 November 2021, the President L released this statement after joining the war on October 28.

While initially we claimed to support Tesforia against the expansionist intentions of Ausveria, it has become clear to the citizens of Malus that this war is not one of genuine animosity and bad blood, but rather a simulationist attention grab. The confederation condemns all nations involved in fighting, and we want the war to end soon and without issue so Long Island can prosper.

President Luci of Malus
