Duke was the brainchild of Tom Kap. The idea was a small perfect nation with a stable government and no crime. Things have been going fine but with some incidents inside Duke. The people of Duke enjoy living in the mostly tax free nation and believe that a nation can be run just fine even if the ruler is a tween. Many of Dukes citizens believe Tom is doing a better job than his USA counterpart Donald Trump. There are always speeches and the idea behind Duke was to also have an enthusiastic leader who could work with the people and contribute ideas to make the nation a better place.
Our nation is called Duke, Because in the Ancient Dukian Language Duke means "nation for everyone."
Duke was created when founder Tom Kap was furious at the outcome of American politics. His guerilla force fought a 8 month war and then established the People's Republic of Duke (Formerly the Republic of Duke) and on 5 October, Duke became independent. Several situations have happened so far, and Tom Kap has loved the micronational world, because he believes that it is not only a fun thing to do but something important and that Micronations show that anyone has the potential to create a nation and run just like anyother. He was inspired by Austenasia, Molossia, and Sealand. The Lonley Planet book of Micronations also inspired Tom. On 5 October 2017, the Empire of Duke declared independence. One week later, it was called the Republic of Duke. Afterwards, there was a change in the government and it changed its name to the People's Republic of Duke. The Duke Civil Conflict was a conflict that happened during the People's Republic period. After that, a Parliament was created. Now Duke is a benevolent autocracy led under President Tom Kap.
Governemntal Crisis of 2018
On July 21st 2018 Dukes current government collapsed due to several reasons: Inactivity of governmental officials, Javis Anti Duke rebel force, and other things. Tom created a provisional government that will last until September 1st 2018 at 11:59 pm. Then the Old government shall come together again. The provisional government was created to not turn Duke into a one man dictatorship over the summer. The participants of the Provisional government are going to be rewarded by the President for there commitment. After a couple of days the Provisional government was disbanded and Duke continued to be ruled normally.
On February 9 2017 President Tom Kap adopted Llyod a dragon betta fish. Tom had Llyod for over 1 year. On Thursday afternoon on April 11 2018 Llyod passed a way of old age and a tumour. In Duke there is a set 100 day mourning period. Llyod was then taken to the Zang River (Hudson River) and put in the water. A Taekist Passsing away ceremony was held. Tom Kaps mother said that she saw him swim form his log decoration to the plants. Later when she came back he wasn't moving. He was pronounced dead later that day.
A QEEPR site was made to honor him link to memorial: http://www.qeepr.com/profile/LlyodJosephOreilly/
Duke Civil Conflict
The Duke Civil Conflict was a Government Conflict when The Dukian Governors argued over Laws. The Provinces of Dongyang,Lesser Chatham,and Violet Box wanted to secede. It was intense and there were many protests and pro partition activists. Both sides where to blame. The provinces then began speaking about starting peace talks. After 2 days the Governors talked and the Conflict ended with Duke not being Partitioned. . Tom Kap says that both sides won by keeping Duke whole instead of partitioning it.

Duke used to be a dictatorship republic but a coup happened and it became the Peoples Republic of Duke on Febuary 23rd (After the Febuary 23rd incident).

Elections for parliament representatives happen every 3 years. Duke is now in a democracy with vice presidential elections every 2 years.
Duke is technically a benevolent autocracy, but there are still elections. The most recent were the Chatham Province Governor elections where Tom Kap won by 8 votes. Then there was the New Hong Kong Autonomous Settlement elections where Tom Kap won too. Voting is important. The Government is planning a special online voting google form.
