The Pimpville War, also known as the Second Steel Valley War, was a cold war that was declared on October 20th, 2010 by the Republic of Pimpville.

Background

Pimpville was a nation created by two members of David Salapa's class, Shane King and Andrew Chuba, during their AP U.S. History class. Immediately, they declared war on Ultamiya and rallied others in the class to join against the President.

The main ally of Pimpville was the Garden Nation, a Republic headed by President A. Votedian. He and David had planned to invade the borough of Whitaker together, until he betrayed David and joined the side of Pimpville.

Surrender by the Garden Nation

The document of surrender by the Garden Nation on October 21st.
That is, for about 30 hours. That evening, President Salapa grabbed a mace and a shield and pressed towards the Garden Nation, on the same hill as Ultamiya. There he traveled back and forth behind the A.'s house, but could not find him. On October 21st, a Thursday, he tried again and found the Vice President, A.'s brother T., outside. He informed David that A. was at a convenience store and would be heading back to the Garden Nation shortly. David waited and sprung out when Adam came. They discussed about why Garden joined Pimpville and whether they would surrender. A. replied by saying that they were dropping out of the war. David went home and typed up a Declaration of Surrender which A. and T. both signed. In the Declaration, the Garden Nation had to become and remain neutral, and cut all militarial ties with Pimpville.

Building of tension

Over the next week and a half, Pimpville and Ultamiya's leaders met frequently in school and mostly just shouted things such as "It's on", but on Friday the 29th, they had a discussion about Pimpville's status on a trip to CCAC, a local college. Shane King said that they had both Airsoft guns and real weapons and would be invading Fort Munhall Military District that Sunday, Halloween.

As the President predicted, that invasion never took place.

Pimpville came under attack by the Holy Salanian Empire on November 1st after President King insulted emperor Jordan I over Facebook. In addition, the Kingdom of Istoria, one of Ultamiya's best friends, also declared war on Pimpville the following day. In return, a 10th grade student rallied some of his classmates to declare war on Ultamiya, though only he and one other classmate believe that there is war to be had. Salapa spoke with his adviser on what to do in this situation. She informed him that the best path is the path of peace.

Salapa presented a peace treaty on December 6th and was denied. However, when the two presidents were discussing a Valentine's Day event on February 14th, King saw the peace treaty and erased everything, writing his own name in its place. Salapa signed about 30 minutes later.

Purpose

Though faced by tough opposition, Pimpville continued to state that there is a just cause for the war. According to President King, there were two purposes of the war, one of which was to show that Pimpville is the dominant Steel Valley micronation. The only way to do that, he said, is by fighting. The other was to annex Fort Munhall Military District.

Ultamian President Salapa believed that the war is completely useless and, as of November 3rd, ceased to recognize a state of war.
