The Colony of Ostreum, is a Baustralian realm succeeding the Empire of Ostreum. The current monarch, the King of Baustralia, is John I, and the Lord Governor is Felkin Parker, 1st Duke of London.

Etymology

The current name, Ostreum, is the alternate of the Latin word ostrea, or in English, oyster. The former name, Tentacion, is the stage name of the deceased rapper XXXTentacion, which is derived from the Spanish word tentación, or in English, temptation.

History

The empire has had multiple shifts in government, starting as a province of Baustralia, known as Cold Creek, through a dictatorship, and now a colony of Baustralia.

2 July 2018, the province of Cold Creek split from Baustralia without consent from John I. The then-absolute monarchy didn't recognize this as a self governing nation, but more as a rebellious government. As the capital happened to be in this area, they moved it to avoid any complications in the future. The monarchy decided to recognize the nation and then reformed it's own government at the new capital. When this new government was made, the Crown and the newly appointed prime minister decided to try and regain the territory.

The battle of Tentacion Creek was responsible for the agreement which caused Tentacion to become a colony of Baustralia. This compromise was very unusual as it had an unusual form of government, Devolved totalitarianism within a constitutional monarchy.

On 28 December 2020, the territory was reorganized into a colony to align with the rest of the realms.
