The name New Batavia cames from the name Batavië with also cames from Batavi ,The Batavi were an ancient Germanic tribe that lived around the modern Dutch Rhine delta in the area that the Romans called Batavia. The tribal name, probably a derivation from batawjō ("good island", from Germanic bat- "good, excellent," which is also in the English "better," and awjō "island, land near water"), refers to the region's fertility, today known as the fruitbasket of the Netherlands (the Betuwe).
In 2010, Shady Morsi and Stein Dros discoverd an abandoned bulding near his school He and Dros decided to proclaim the Republic of Shadystein. Soon the republic was transformed as a monarchy and was renamed into Shadyvinkenstein as Shady was proclaimed King after an election and Timo Vink was proclaimed as Prime Minister In febuary 2010 Shady Morsi formed the Shadyvinkensteini Border Guard and tries to capture Dutch civilians who illegally crossed the Shadyvinkensteini border. As the Border Guard capturd a Dutch civilian, Soon the civilian called the Dutch authorities and escaped. Soon a Dutch Volunteer Army crossed the border and removed Shady Morsi from power. Shady Morsi condemned the invasion and said that "the invasion was a violation of Shadyvinkensteini sovereignty". Soon he settled a Government in Exile and started claiming the land.
While the government left the country they started to establish Shadyvinkenstein in another location and claiming all of the yard while they decided to still fight against the Dutch invaders. Shadyvinkenstein started annexing more land and even started a liberation war as various partisan kingdoms were formed fighting against Dutch and the Republic of Drusia, a state who was proclaimed by Joey Verhoeven.
Soon the government itself was divided into 2 factions: the Reformers and the Traditionalists. However, the Reformers couldn't agree who is king. As Kevin was proclaimed as king, Shady and Stein rebelled against him and deposed him, making Shady Morsi again king of Shadyvinkenstein. Soon the Government collapsed and fell inactive
Under Hoogwaard, Shadyvinkenstein was a province of Hoogwaard. Shadyvinkenstein was an development area by the Government and had a semi automomus monarchy with Kevin as Emperor. Although, later Hoogwaard was disbanded.
On 28 December President Shady Morsi and Deniz Tecan talked about the future of Shadyvinkenstein Shady dosnt want Shadyvinkenstein any more, but Shady didn't want that the kingdom get lost so Shady gave Shadyvinkenstein to Snežanopol. On December 29, 2013 Emiel Hardy, at that time king of Mahuset, became representative of Shadyvinkenstein.
As a result of a court case that Shady lost, he was deposed and the nation was renamed as Zyablikistan, with Joseph Kennedy as governor. As a result, the people rised up and proclaimed the Republic of Shadyvinkenstein soon Shady returned and became head of state
Soon Shadyvinkenstein was giving to an other Snezani subject, Derskovia after Snežanopol kicked Derskovia form Snežanopol the government of Derskovia with was in an union with Viadalvia it remained Derskov
The idea to reveal Shadyvinkenstein was since 2012. During Viadalvian rule though, Shadyvinkenstein proclaimed indenpendence with Collin Vink as provisional king until a new king would be elected.
