Dissolution

On 30 July 2020, Joost made it known he was uninterested in ruling on, and made remarks hinting at him wanting to disestablish New Eiffel, which, although, would have been unconstitutional, added further instability to the ongoing crisis. Eventually, after months of attempting to find a solution with Joost, with some proposals including changing New Eiffel's territorial claims, the other residents sided with Joost and had publicly expressed their opposition to New Eiffel's claim to sovereignty. New Eiffel was unexpectedly declared dissolved on 1 November 2020 at midnight 12:00 p.m. (NET; UTC). After the dissolution, the post was abolished.
