Newcomers were flooding through Indokistan and CHC Ville just to find a home. Little Nations, previously named Villes Community came up with a petition asking that properties be restricted due to overflow. This petition didn't affect Indokistan, but affected CHC Ville.
Shortly afterwards, the Ntolian Rebellion occurred, threatening to destroy Indokistan. CHC Ville, which in their long march path, was also forced to independent. On January 1 at midnight, the independent text was finished and signed and by the day, CHC Ville was independent from ownerships as Little Britain.
14 days after the independence, Little Britain had it's own election to elect the new prime minister and it's board. The candidates were Rayhan Haikal from Democratic party, Arya Notoanegoro from Republic party and Rifat Alridhan from National party. Votes were exile from Little Britain's civillian to choose the first parliament board. The result was Democratic Party got 35 votes, Republic got 25 votes and National got 18 votes.
