The Paloman invasion of Princetin, known by internal documents as Operation Nieve, was the invasion called the Princetin conflict. On 17 December 2020, Aidan McGrath, President of the Free Socialist State of Paloma had told King John I of Baustralia, mother country of the Colony of Princetin that they, referring to the Paloman People's Army, "have crossed the Lord’s drain. They are in Princetin."

Alerted a day before, McGrath, then a Major in the Kingdom's Secret Service Brigade, had mentioned that the Vice President had decided that they may perform a regime change in the Colony. This was treated as an Act of War, and after the Palomans invaded, war was declared on Paloma by Baustralia, under the advice of the Chief of the Defence Staff, First Sea Lord and Chief of the Naval Staff, Deputy Chief of the Defence Staff, and the Prime Minister and Adjutant General.

The war declarations have been ignored by the Paloman Government due to Paloma having no diplomatic relations with Bauatralia. Paloma also stated before that they "don't recognize war".

Result

Although de jure a Baustralian colony, Paloma and the revolutionary Princetinites were able to take control of the territory and lays claim on the land.

Baustralia considered the land theirs until referendum was performed to provide for a legal change of hands. It passed with a vote of 3-1-0 (Aye-abstain-nay), with a population of 5. It will be released from Baustralian sovereignty on 1 January 2021.

As such, it was considered a win for Paloma in terms of territory change, but a win for Baustralia as a legal route was found to grant independence to the colony.
