The Mohawk Empire was a micronation located in Devon. Its territory was the former Adammic colony of Borealia. It has 8 residents who are registered citizens (with at least three others unregistered, thus not counting towards the official population). It contained its own Online Television Channel. It was the last remnant of Mohawk civilization and is arguably one of most fought over territories in all of micronationalism, as it was in a constant state of war from 2005 to 2015. It finally became defunct around August 2016, putting to an end over 13 years of Mohawk history.
The Mohawk Empire was the latest incarnation of several states that have existed in the area in the "Den World" sector in Devon. The first of these was NED, from 2005 to 2009. Following a rebellion, NED collapsed and was replaced by DEONQED (Democratic Empire of North Queen Elizabeth Drive) in 2010. Eventually, DEONQED too fell into decline, and in July 2014 a revolution was held against the reigning Emperor Ben. The remaining citizens of DEONQED elected Emperor Adam I as their new Emperor, putting DEONQED in personal union with the Empire of Adammia. On 22 July 2014, DEONQED was merged with the Empire and renamed to Borealia. Borealia was originally a Territorial Claim of Adammia. Plans were formed to return the region to its former glory, such as rebuilding the old DEONQED capital of Spoliarium Magna, and constructing a foundry which could melt aluminium.
In December 2014 it was discovered that in becoming Emperor of Borealia, Adam I had inherited the title of Mohawk Leader, which he promptly abdicated. Tom Martin then claimed the title and established the Mohawk Empire, creating a diplomatic stand-off with Adammia. The Mohawk Empire then remained dormant until 1 August 2016, when the Borealian Independence Referendum resulted in Borealia becoming independent from Adammia. After Adam I abdicated the Borealian throne, the Borealian people elected Martin as their new Emperor. His first act was to unify the Mohawk Empire and Borealia, effectively giving the Mohawk Empire Borealia's territory.
The Mohawk government was led by Emperor Thomas I, who was the head of government and had the final say on matters of governance. Responsibilities were delegated to various people in his leadership team. Will McCracken was the Ambassador of the Empire, and deals with diplomacy and the interaction of the Empire with the outside world. Nathaniel Scarborough was General of the Mohawk Army, and was in charge with handling military affairs and making sure they are properly equipped. Ben Cain was in charge of the Imperial Treasury, and is in charge of handling trade and the budget of the Empire. James Steel was chief Pyromancer, and was in charge of developing the Empire's special weaponry.
The military of the Mohawks were armed with air rifles, pistols, and were developing a missile defence system to be based in Spoliarium Magna, although this was never completed. The military projected power throughout its sector, and was unchallenged as the primary power in the Den World.
The Mohawk Empire was very industrialized, having within its boundaries a main foundry which is capable of melting aluminium which was inherited from Borealia. It also possesses within its bounds skilled labourers who can build complicated buildings and can create weapons. Its chief industries were construction, computer manufacture and the distribution of digital content. Borealia also had its own Youtube channel, which it uploads its media on in the form of news updates.
