The November Transition is a term used to describe the transitional phase that A1 experienced during the official transition from the Most Glorious People's Republic of A1 to the current Federated Republics of A1 in November 2010, and the events surrounding it.

Origins

The ideas for a transition from the MGPRA1 to a new system can be traced back to around August 2010, when the National Government first became aware of the fact that many, if not practically all, of the New Central Protectorate's (now the Republic of Acacia) citizens would leave at the end of the year, due to the completion of their secondary education. At the time, A1 was primarily based around school - indeed, that was where its origins were. However, then-Chairman John Hogg and then-Deputy Chairman David Massarde began discussing and planning what the nation's response should be.

Events

The Transition was put into writing by both Fish and Massarde in September of that year, with detailed reports about specific aspects of the transition being authored, such as for the then Ministry of Communications.

New Central Citizenship Exodus

In October 2010, New Central lost 95% of its citizenry, as secondary school ended for all of them. This caused the plans for the transition to be altered to include for a more extra-Australian structure.

Provisional Government

A few days before the official establishment of the new Federated Republics of A1, First Secretary John Hogg released a speech outlining the new system to citizens and interested foreigners.

The Provisional Government, basically consisting entirely of Sir. Fish, operated until the November 2010 General Election. However, due to there being no actual voting due a shortage of candidates in all seats, Premier of the Republic of Lichthalzen, Mars McTavish, was appointed Prime Minister by Fish, as the Cirrus Party had a majority in the Chamber of Electorates.
