Myway is a colony of the Empire of Adammia. It is located within the Region of North Adammia and is 1211m² in size, and has 4 resident citizens. Myway includes part of a river that runs through the United Kingdom, making 302m² of the province water. It also includes a bungalow house, a garage, a large garden, and two abandoned structures that may have once been workshops before the house entered its current ownership by a branch of the House of Hall. The colony was a province between 2014 and 2017, before being downgraded to a colony by the Empire of Adammia Act 2017 at the end of the First Era. It is currently known for being home to the headquarters of the Adammic Navy.

Etymology

Myway is named after the residential property in which it is situated, also called Myway, as denoted by a sign at the entrance to the property. This name was invented by a previous resident of the property, and it is believed to refer to the notion that in constructing the property's main buildings, this owner did things his own way ("my way"). Another theory is that it refers to the Frank Sinatra song, My Way.

History

Adammic tradition holds that, during the 19th Century, ancestors of the House of Hall used to carry out poaching on the land which is now known as Myway. Christopher Hall and his family moved into the property in 2011.

At a Ruling Council meeting in December 2013, Sir Reginald Hall suggested that the property of his son, Christopher Hall, should be annexed to the Empire. A treaty of annexation was signed by Emperor Adam I and Christopher Hall on 4 January 2014, making Myway the Empire of Adammia's fifth province. Myway remained a province until the end of the First Era. During this time, Myway became known for the slow communications between it and the Adammic central government, which led it to being seen as the most "lawless" of the Adammic provinces. Local elections were often held weeks or months late. Myway Docks Naval Base was commissioned in 2014, but it would not be set up until years later.

On 28 October 2017, the Empire of Adammia Act downgraded Myway to colony status. In June 2018, Myway Docks Naval Base was finally set up, after Lord Hall and his family acquired a canoe, the HMIS Eagle. The naval base is currently the home port of the 1st Imperial Fleet and is the headquarters of the Adammic Navy, with the now Lord Admiral Hall serving as chief-of-staff of the Navy.

Government

The landed noble of Myway is Lord Admiral Sir Christopher Hall, 1st Duke of Myway. He is currently the colony's governor. When Myway was a province, the elected Councilor was Eleanor Hall, who won the seat from Madam Debbie Shaw in the 2016 local election.
