Oblate City is the current capital of Matachewan and seat of power of Matachewan's Monarchy. The city is the main center of Matachewanian Industry and Culutre. Oblate City was given official status as a city in July of 2019 when the Matachewanian Government moved operations to St. Catharines Ontario.


Etymology

Oblate City is named after the street it is based on called Oblate Street. It is not known where the name came from but it is known that the street and area were connected to Facer Street (Oldest Street in St. Catharines) and it was the center of the Polish community of St. Catharines, at one point the whole area around the street was Polish speaking. It is believed by Matachewan that the name Oblate comes from a missionary or priest from Poland due to the fact the street was made alongside a Polish Catholic Church. Other than speculations and theories it is not known exactly where the name Oblate comes from.

History

The history of Oblate City is very shot compared to Matachewan itself. Oblate City was first mentioned back during the Matachewanian-Prussian Commonwealth as the St. Catharines Territory. This territory was the then and current home of Brandon Mierzwa but was still considered a secondary city with the capital still being located in Matachewan Ontario the founding place of the Grand Kingdom of Matachewan and the area that Brandon had been visiting every year before the establishment of Matachewan as a nation.

During MP Commonwealth

During the Matachewanian-Prussian Commonwealth Oblate City was known as St. Catharines Territory. The territory never made it to official colonial status and was idle for most of the Commonwealth's existence.
