History

Old Parabica

The old Parabican flag

The land that would become Old Parabica was settled by Viridian Fields on 1 February 2002. Parabica declared independence from the United States on September 25, 2011, with Viridian taking position as monarch of the newly founded nation. At the time, Parabica's capital was Peryrius.

Following its founding, Parabica experienced a mass exodus as 2 people, over a quarter of the population, immigrated to the United States. After this Parabica experienced a golden age of prosperity which lasted until the early 2012.

Invasion and Coup

In early 2012, Parabica experienced a massive invasion of foreign soldiers. The original territory was evacuated in March 2012 and Parabica's citizens were transported to a new, larger territory 3.4 kilometers away. Upon arrival, King Viridian resumed his reign as monarch. The US regained control of the old territory and presumably eradicated the foreign soldiers.

In the wake of evacuation, Parabica's economy steadily declined. On 25 June 2015, with unrest growing, opponents of the crown seized the opportunity to stage a coup which overthrew King Viridian, ending his three and a half year reign. Everett Flynn was elected as President while Viridian was sent to prison.
