The Midget Civil War was a conflict within the Midget Empire that took place in March 2003, between the Midget Army and the break-away New And Improved Midgets.

War

Sometime in March 2003, a leadership dispute broke out in the Midget Army. The Midgets had grown over the past several months to the point where there roughly fifteen of them, all sharing the now relatively cramped Midget Base. A faction within the Midgets emerged supporting one of the three Midget commanders, Charlie, as an alternative leader to Midget Master Daniel. This faction, led by Charlie and his deputy Mitchell, declared Charlie to be the new Midget Master, but after a short battle were driven out of the Midget Base by Daniel and his loyalists.

Charlie's followers regrouped on the other side of the Music Hut, which became known as the Rebel Side, a name which continued to be used for it for several years to come. Midget Master Charlie then proclaimed his faction the "New And Improved" Midgets, and after forcing out some Invaders from the Rebel Side claimed the Midget Empire as his own and declared war on Daniel's Midget Army. Mitchell gave out pencils among the New And Improved Midgets to use as weapons. Jonathan, one of the two loyalist commanders, found this out through spying on them and reported it to Midget Master Daniel, who decided on a pre-emptive strike.

Midget Master Daniel and his two commanders, Jonathan and Gregory, personally lead the force of roughly four other Midget Army members against the eight or so New And Improved Midget members. The attack began, with the Midget Army soldiers throwing fistfuls of sand from the Midget Base at the New And Improved Midgets. After the sand ran out however, they were chased back into the Midget Base by the New And Improved Midgets, where a battle was fought: sand against pencil. Eventually, the New And Improved Midgets started to retreat one by one as their school uniform got too dirty from the barrages of sand. Charlie and Mitchell were captured and forced to kneel before Midget Master Daniel. Their pencils were ceremonially broken and buried in the sand, and they were made to promise that they recognised Daniel as the true Midget Master. Charlie was then made to further promise that he would never attack the Midget Base again, before the two prisoners were released.

Aftermath

Charlie may have promised to never attack the Midget Base again, but Mitchell had not. He recruited more members to the New And Improved Midgets with the intention of continuing the war, but was ousted from power by a boy called Jack, who reformed the New And Improved Midgets into the Word Life Gang, a future powerful ally of the Midget Army. After defeating the New And Improved Midgets, the Midget Empire claimed the Rebel Side, but did not occupy it soon enough to prevent the Push Bench Gang from occupying it instead, leading to the Battle of the Push Bench Gang.
