The United Socialist Pacificonian Islands, or Pacificonia, is a micronation in the south pacific and the United States. Pacificonia was founded on July 12 2017 after the dissolution of the Oceanus islands. Pacificonia is one of the members of the United Islands International Alliance, a group of island micronations. The country itself is made up of 4 islands and 2 territories. The 4 islands are Ducie, Tikei, Maria, and Oeno. The 2 territories are Koneo and Juniper. Acadia is the proposed capital in the commune of Neao on Ducie.

Pacificonia is a democratic micronation. The country is run by a president and is aided by the United Islands Council. Currently the citizens directly work with the government to run the country. A new constitution was drafted in 2020 to fit with the modern state of the county. Pacificonia has free trade agreements with UI member micronations such as Southerania. In recent times the government is proposing to create the PMA (Pacific Micronation Alliance) a union to bring together island micronations.


Etymology

The name Pacificonia came from two words Pacific and Corner. The Name came from the idea that Pacificonia was the corner of the Pacific.

History

Pacificonia was founded in July 2017 after a succession from the Oceanus Islands. Pacificonia at the time called Terraria found Ducie island which it made the capital. Shortly after Pacificonia Supported Teguam and Southerania in the creation of the United Islands. In September 2017 Pacificonia gained Oeno as the second island. The third island Maria was found after the small puppet state of Jordanland fell. The expansion era ended with the annexation of Tikei and Oeno leaving. In Early 2018 Pacificonia became a monarchy led by a king. During this time Pacificonia played a part in the war for Starbuck and the Junaria Teguam dispute. Pacificonia helped in the independence movement of Junaria and the fall of Teguam. Soon in the late summer of 2018 Pacificonia had a large leftist movement leading to the end of the monarchy and the formation of a socialist government. The new government brought back Oeno and changed its policy. Pacificonia is now neutral in the united islands and has become more stable in recent times.
