Independence

Muddywater has no official declaration of Independece, but it is generally considered sovereign.


Culture

For a young 6th world micronation, Muddywater has very colorful culture. Many would consider the Muddywater culture to be "redneck" or "hillbilly" in nature, but it is culture. The pillars of the culture are country music, tractors, pick-up trucks, fishing, hunting, and playing darts.


Geography

Muddywater is diveded into two main catagories, Provences and overseas territories. Provences are populated areas that are home to some type of potential tourist atraction and are represented in the government. Overseas territories on the other hand are remotely located, unpopulated, often desolate areas that are territory of Muddywater. Overseas teritories may or may not be avialable for devolpment in the future.

Government

The government of Muddywater is set up in democratic style, with a representitive component. Each Provence, through a simple majority vote, elects a Govenor and a Presidential Canidate. The Govenor serves as that Provence's representive. As far as the Presidental election is concerned, the canidate who gets the most Provence endorsements wins.

Military

The only military force possessed by Muddywater is the Woodland Guard. The Woodland Guard is divided into three main divisions, each one styled after a specific a service (Navy, Air Force and Army), however there has been talk about further dividing them into separate branches. The Woodland Guard uses a simple rank system and wears camouflage uniforms. The Woodland Guard uses airsoft weapons to defend Muddywater if all else fails, but this has yet to be needed. Provinces are authorized to have their own Province Level Military, but a province Governor has yet to organize one.

Law Enforcement

Muddywater has only one law enforcement agency which is operated by the national government. The National Police serve as the enforcers of micronational law. Provinces are authorized to have their own local Police, but a province Governor has yet to organize one.

Military Conflicts

The Hasslewood Conflict

After the Republic annexed Hasslewood Rock, the Kingdom of Domus reacted swiftly by declaring war when Muddywater refused to release the claim. Domus claims that Hasslewood is a "Royal Holding" and that Muddywater was claiming there territory. The President reacted by insisting that Hasslewood is seperate island from Rockall, which was what the Domus claim annexed. Muddywater has not officialy declared war, but awarded it Conflict Status, while Domus declared an official state of war. After several days, the Conflict was resolved after Domus and Muddywater reached an agreement. The terms of the agreement are as follows:

1. Domus must not take agressive action agianst Muddywater and must agree to end the war 2. Domus must not use their allies to indirectly attack Muddywater 3. Domus must recognize all other claims of Muddywater and agree not to dispute them 4. Domus must recoginze the ending of the war as an Honorable and Condtional Withdraw of Muddywater

Muddywater withdrew from the conflict and released Hasslewood Rock on 6 April 2012.
