The Anarchy Era was the time period before any government in Skendal was established. Everett Millet found out about micronationalism from his friend, Austin Adridge, and established Skendal as an at-home project. At this time Skendal had two members and was not yet known by the outside world. Soon, it made its only broadcast onto Youtube. Skendal was officially declared on May 21, 2010. During the period Riley Small and Everett Millet had no real contact.
The Oligarchy Era came after about six month of Skendal being founded. During this time Skendal had gone partially inactive. An Oligarchy was set up with the two founders, and they ruled as the oligarchs with some other citizens as advisors. This period was not very important in the history of Skendal, and the government soon collapsed.
Dictatorship and Kozuc Influence Era
The dictatorship Era was one of the most important time periods in all of Skendal's history. In this Era a complete dictatorship was established with Everett Millet as the autocratic leader. During this period Everett was told of MicroWiki by Riley Small and the true birth of Skendal began. It was also during this time that a new flag was used and all of the national symbols were replaced.
Pre-Democracy and Diplomacy Era
In this Era many micronations came to know Skendal, and Everett Millet joined the forums to got to know some more members of the community. It was during this era that four more members joined the nation, an soon they established a democracy.

Also during this era Skendal became widely known and diplomacy with them became rapidly available.

Shortly after Kozuc became independent Riley convinced Everett to become West Kozuc and East Kozuc to model West and East Germany. In this Era Skendal set of a Communist economy and became more focused on establishing a stable economy.
This Era started after the famed Operation Jdub in which Everett Millet and three military personnel were held captive by the Kozuc Armed Forces. In this operation Skendal became a part of Kozuc. Not long after this event Skendal became in a state of near totally inactivity. During this period Skendal was a part of Kozuc completely.
Liberation and Major Reforms Era: Golden Age
It was in this Era that due to lack of activity in Skendal their people decided to liberate and take back its land. Millet and a some of the citizens revolted together as seen in a historic video, taking back their land in a nearby park. Along with the physical liberation, Skendal also sent a lengthy letter to Riley Small to assure he new the details and conditions of the liberation. After the liberation Skendal had many reforms. Inlcluding a new democratic government created by Everett Millet. The new government compose's of two branches and is split into districts.
The national flag of Skendal is an inverted version of the flag of Gabon which was chosen because it was easy to produce and had the same colours of the previous flag. The green is representative of vegetation, the yellow is symbolic for sunlight while the blue represents the sky and ocean. The three colours of the flag represent vital body parts - the limbs for helping, the heart for loving and the brain for thinking. The coat of arms of Skendal was designed by Everette Millet but currently remains on paper.
