The Princetin conflict was a conflict that occurred in December 2020 between Paloma and Baustralia over the Colony of Princetin.

On 16 December 2020, after discussing the Barony of Davidson, Aidan McGrath said that a "regime change [in Princetin] may be carried out by my government, with or without my permission." King John responded that annexation is an Act of War, and will be considered a hostile action.

On 17 December, Martel Sims, the Vice President of the Free Socialist State of Paloma, decided to announce his intent to annex the territory for the state. This annexation had yet to be signed off by president Aidan McGrath, and diplomatic talks had commenced to avoid a conflict.

On 19 December, after talks had gone nowhere, war was declared on Paloma for the government's occupation of the territory. On 21 December, the Baustralian government released the Princetin sovereignty referendum. The referendum was been contested by the Palomans as nobody actually voted in the referendum and it was all guessing.


Legality and legitimacy of the referendum

The Baustralian referendum held has been criticized by some Palomans as illegitimate as no one actually voted in the referendum. This brings to question by some if this is an example of Baustralian gerrymandering.
